iFlexis Review

Review Thumbstar Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
iFlexis Review

Wrapping your head around iFlexis by Thumbstar Games is a little hard, but if you were to combine Tetris with bouncy physics and a three-match game you'd at least be in the right vicinity. At first glance, the comparison to Tetris is immediately apparent, with familiarly shaped block configurations of various colors descending in to place at the bottom of the screen. However, once the objects are touched they come to life with a bouncy rubbery feel that can be swung around your finger…

Voodoo Dice Review

Review Ubisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Voodoo Dice Review

It felt like only a matter of time until Voodoo Dice by Ubisoft hit the App Store, with its simple controls and unique puzzle gameplay that seems perfect for games on the go. And honestly, who doesn't see a title like Voodoo Dice and not be somewhat intrigued? However, score one for the marketing division as Voodoo Dice doesn't involve chance or luck (as Dice would imply) and the Voodoo theme is just that, a visual theme. Oh well, at least the gameplay sucks you in yeah? Ostensibly, t…

Aqueduct Review

Review Kieffer Bros. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Aqueduct Review

If there's anything that the Kieffer Bros. excel at, it's the polished design work that goes in to their games. Aqueduct, their latest puzzle title, shows no less polish and combined with their 'Pipe Mania'-come-sliding-puzzle gameplay it's easy to get addicted. Each puzzle requires players to link up each faucet with the drains on the level without leaking water. Each tile can be moved within the confines of an open floor-space, while sliding tiles, teleporters, switches and conveyor…

PREDATORS™ Review

PREDATORS™ Review

Movie-to-game tie-ins have had a spotted history and often the end result is a rather half-baked title that feels ok, but never really gets to shine. So it's refreshing to not only have PREDATORS for iDevices before its movie comes out, but more importantly this latest release from Chillingo manages to stand on its own feet as an excellent action title. PREDATORS plays like a fine-tuned beat'em-up set in two relatively large areas where you have to complete various tasks to prove your…

Green Jump Review

Review Baboonix LTD By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Green Jump Review

Much like the boldness displayed by the creators of Veggie Samurai, Baboonix have developed a rather blatant Doodle Jump clone in Green Jump - the first official game for Greenpeace on the App Store. But it's not entirely without merit as Green Jump keeps things simple and most importantly, fun. Players need only to tilt their device to help slide their green crusader around as he jumps off clouds to escape the rising smog. As you climb in to the stratosphere you can collect letters t…

1942: FIRST STRIKE Review

1942: FIRST STRIKE Review

Before titles like Street Fighter or Mega Man dominated the market for Capcom, 1942 was tearing up the Arcades and carried on as a popular series of shoot'em-ups. Recently the series had a revival on the XBox Live Arcade as a 3D amalgamation of the previous titles and now fans of the series can play a retro-remix of this title on their iDevices with '1942: FIRST STRIKE'. Players can switch between tilt-to-move or touch-and-swipe controls for maneuvering one of three available planes.…

Dark Fighter Review

RTS (real-time strategy) titles have gained mixed success on the App Store by dialing back the complexity of a genre that has relied on a symbiosis with PC hardware for so long. Dark Fighter by Slowchop Studios joins these titles as a challenging RTS experience that's perfect for fans after a quick and furious match. Intuitive controls are employed for moving around the screen via swipes, pinching to zoom and dragging objects to position them for construction. A catch-all build button…

Whacksy Taxi Review

Review Mindstorm Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Whacksy Taxi Review

Whacksy Taxi by Mindstorm Studios is a bogglingly fun title for one simple reason: Who'd have thought that Outrun could become MORE of an Arcade game? In this endless-style racer you'll dodge, jump and fly over traffic on your whirlwind tour of the US, just try not to blow up while nudging cars from the rear. Your Taxi has free reign of three lanes on its high-speed rampage, with various cars, SUVs and trucks blocking your way. Tapping the controls on either side of the screen will ju…

Prisoner 84 Coming Soon

Indie Developers Hidden Games are currently developing a third-person action/adventure game called Prisoner 84 for the iPhone and iPod Touch. A preview trailer has been released, though not showing much action, gives a good idea of the look of the game, which kind of reminded me of Golden Eye 007 for the N64 but with a bit more work needed. Checkout the YouTube Preview: App Info: Take control of a psychotic inmate who is attempting to escape prison. The game combines action and puzzle elements and features lots of hidden surprises! Features: - Over 40 areas to explore- All levels are realised in full 3D- Combines action with fiendish puzzles!- Supports first gen iPhone and iPo…
