FlyChick Review

Review #App By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
FlyChick Review

FlyChick is an interesting take on endless gameplay by #App and combines RPG elements with horizontally scrolling SHMUP gameplay to keep you hooked. As you destroy enemies or complete 'missions' your chick will also upgrade, gaining a bit of extra health and changing his appearance to show just how bad-ass he's becoming. FlyChick uses a tap-to-fly system while automatically firing your weapon. Holding down will allow you to fly higher, while rhythmic taps help to keep you flying relat…

Review Top Evidence Studio By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
iHook Review

iHook by Top Evidence Studio is a strange breed of physics-based puzzle platformer that might be hard to get in to, but once you wrap your head around its frustrating puzzle concepts you might just find yourself addicted to its challenging gameplay. At its basic level you need to pilot a ship to the exit using only a limited amount of available 'hook' points that allow you to turn from your fixed direction. Players can tap the ship to immediately reverse its direction or deploy a seco…

Ace Tennis 2010 Online Review

Lately it seems to be the season for sports titles, which shouldn't be too much of a surprise as Summer starts to get in to full swing.

For those who just have to get up and move, Ace Tennis features several accelerometer optimized actions to get you in the zone.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 (US) Review

The Pro Evolution Soccer series has garnered a lot of respect from some fans of the sport thanks mostly to its weighty and realistic feeling players that smoothly maneuver their way across the pitch with practiced skill. PES 2010 is Konami's first release of their popular franchise on the iPhone and fans can expect the same attention to detail present in its bigger console brothers. There are three control schemes to choose from, with a classic stick and two-button configuration commo…

Juggle! Review

Review Denki By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Juggle! Review

It's been shown time and again, but sometimes the simplest of ideas can be the most powerful. Juggle! by Denki has stripped back the old brick-and-paddle gameplay (think Arcanoid) to it's basic level, bouncing objects - often many at a time - off a tiny moveable paddle. Juggle! is played in a vertical orientation, with a relatively small paddle that quickly moves across the bottom of the screen at the lightest touch. At first this feels excessive and awkward, but additional balls cont…

Crystal War Review

Review GNC INTERACTIVE By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Crystal War Review

Crystal War by GNC INTERACTIVE has taken its basic inspirations from obvious sources and brings their own spin to the Trenches style of gameplay with a touch of Warcraft to create something truly fascinating. Opponents are placed at either end of the screen, often requiring some scrolling to reach the other side, while crystals (the game's form of currency) fill the land between. Harvesters can gather the crystals, which then goes towards purchasing units in order to push back your en…

Geometry Wars™: Touch Review

Geometry Wars™: Touch Review

Plenty of other developers have taken a crack at trying to recapture the magic of Geometry Wars and some have certainly come close, but nothing quite manages to come close as the real thing. Now you can play it almost anywhere thanks to a recent update from Activision that added native support for the iPhone as well. There are a couple options for controlling your ship, with the traditional twin-analogue setup being the most obvious addition along with the choice of using single-stick…

Mice Heist Review

Review Trickshot Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Mice Heist Review

Roll with me on this one... For some reason you've decided that it'd be a top idea to drop your cheese in to a giant pile in front of a series of conspicuous mice-holes, only to find out that they're a nest of anthropomorphic critters out to steal your cheese. Well in Mice Heist it's just another day as usual, but at least you get to tap them to send them on their way, with the occasional disco-dancing cat also dropping by to scare them off. Once you've chosen a difficulty level, the…

Tunnel Shoot Pro Review

Review Backflip Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Tunnel Shoot Pro Review

Tunnel Shoot by Backflip Studios - of Ragdoll Blaster and Paper Toss fame - is their latest App to be pushed out in to the big bad world. As you'd expect a lot of shooting inside a tunnel is what you get, but players will also be subjected to high-speeds and plenty of obstacles to avoid while making a run for their high score. Controlling your ship is as easy as tilting to move around the tunnel, while tapping and holding fires your weapons and double-touching launches your bombs. Eac…

Farmville Is Out!

Zynga, the company responsible for the loss of productivity in offices around the world (ok, that's unproven, but you can't tell me that you haven't sneaked a play of one of their games at work at one time or another) have released FarmVille for the AppStore.

We're experiencing a few difficulties in staying connected to the servers (it IS release day, so it's to be at least somewhat expected), however we'll keep on trying until we can get a full review ASAP. For now, fans of the game are unlikely to nee…

Review XS Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Red Star Review

The Red Star, for those who follow comics, is a series set in an alternate-universe post-World War II Russia that mixes technology and magic together. A game for the PS2 was developed and released in 2007 and after XS Games' recent adaption of the title to the PSP, iPhone users are now also able to experience this intricate beat'em up on the go. A few concessions had to be made to ensure that Red Star was playable in the same way for the iPhone and the first thing most players will no…
