Burple Fish : The Burping Free Falling Action Game Review

Burple Fish : The Burping Free Falling Action Game Review

Clowns, whatever you're position on them as entertainers, are typically associated with fairly surreal situations. If you could slip in to the dreams of a clown after a big successful show near the seaside, you might just find a resemblance to Russ Kumro's latest App, Burple Fish. Should you be fascinated enough to delve in to the halls of madness, you'll be confronted by a simple premise: Get your fish to the ocean without him exploding from built up 'gas'. As you fall from the sky y…

HexaRot Review

Review Jozsef Kern By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
HexaRot Review

Three-match games are a dime a dozen, with many games even opting to include them as a gameplay mechanic with an entirely separate genre. HexaRot by Jozsef Kern trys to stand out by being more of a brain-teaser, replacing a traditional grid with hexagonal wheels that must be turned to line-up patterns. There's more than a bit of adjustment required in mastering this new matching technique and at times it borders on being more like a puzzle than a quick-fire three match game. The Timed…

muBlip Review

Review para9 By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
muBlip Review

I'm not sure if I've somehow been co-opted in to an educational game while playing muBlip by para9. On the face of it the game is an Ouendan-style rhythm game with fresh electronic chiptune beats, but to mix things up the game uses a Simon-says watch and repeat set up to add an amazing new kind of challenge to the genre. Each track is broken up in to phrases where the player watches the computer play the beat using on screen patterns and then must repeat the phrase as accurately as po…

Rat On The Run Review

Review Donut Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Rat On The Run Review

One of the biggest challenges in designing a game for a touch device is coming up with a way for the game to be played that feels natural. Platformers have toyed with free-running in the past and some like Canabalt have been immensely successful. Like others before them, Donut Games has taken free-running and made their excellent puzzle platormer Rat on the Run. The gameplay is entirely uncomplicated by pointless controls and only requires touching the screen to start moving and to ju…

Hands On Preview - Mad Tanks

Hands On Preview - Mad Tanks

There are a lot of things that help when trying to stand out from the pack with a new App, but if you're going to do something that has come before at least try to be "the whole package". Mad Tanks by Joystick Ninjas will be hitting the App Store soon and will be competing for ground in the Scorched-Earth-meets-Worms genre stakes. Gameplay comes in two flavors, the first being typically round-based and awarding players with cash after each round for more weaponry to pummel their opponents faces with. However, the second available mode is what could have made Mad Tanks truly intriguing. 'Tactics' as it's called consists of a set limit of turns that each player can take, one after the other,…


WordSearch Rush Review

Review We Are Colin By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
WordSearch Rush Review

It's not surprising how many word-search games are on the App Store thanks to it being a fairly well known and easy to implement puzzle for a touch device. However plenty of them suffer from either having huge grids that are a pain to read or lack any real fun game element. WordSearch Rush by We Are Colin tries to solve both of these problems while remaining true to the puzzle's more educational purposes. WordSearch uses 7x7 (and the occasional 8x8) to keep things easy to read without…

The Witcher - Versus For iPhone

News By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
The Witcher - Versus For iPhone

I'm a bit of a fan of The Witcher by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski and despite being an early adopter of the PC RPG for the franchise (which was riddled with issues for the international version), my fandom held true. So of course the news of a sequel just being announced caused me some joy. What does this have to do with the iPhone? Well the game is getting a cross-platform release and that's right... the App Store will be getting its slice of the franchise. The Witcher: Versus will be tied to a browser-based version of the game, which means you can waste your time while you waste your time (insert Xzibit macro here). More details are to come, but it's looking really good and that's n…

Flick Bowling 2 Review

Review Freeverse, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Flick Bowling 2 Review

If Doc Brown from Back To The Future had a crazy German half-brother, he'd be Baron Von Schtopwatch, the mad professor who hassles Jim and Jen at their local bowling alley. Stay with me on this one because it gets weirder. Your goal is to return to the modern day while challenging figures from history after Von Schtopwatch sends you back to ancient Egypt. Storyline aside, Flick Bowling 2 by Freeverse is a strange beast to handle. The "true to life" physics as the developers put it mak…

Blast Off Review

Review Halfbrick Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Blast Off Review

Physics is your friend. That is to say, forces related to physics like gravity are a small comfort for those of us terrestrially bound. For those flying around tiny clusters of super-dense planetoids, black holes and white holes while rescuing the occasional astronaut, physics can be a royal pain in the rear-end. Blast Off by Halfbrick Studios is a physics based puzzle game that combines action elements to provide a devilish challenge. Blast Off uses a single-touch system, propelling…
