Bump Wars Review

Review Coin Bump, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Bump Wars Review

I'm always on the look-out for strange new strategy titles and I have to say that I've definitely found myself intrigued by Bump Wars from developer Coin Bump. Part real-time strategy, part tower defense, you'll have to master managing your resources and units to develop the best defense possible against the enemies advancing troops. Once you've selected from the three available maps, you'll be thrown directly in to the battle with selectable units down the left side that can be dropp…

Drift Mania Championship Gold Review

Review Ratrod Studio Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Drift Mania Championship Gold Review

I honestly don't get the attraction to drift racing, which is odd considering its popularity with many of my friends and indeed around the world. However, after spending time with Drift Mania Championship by Ratrod Studio I came close to understanding and if nothing else it's an impressive title at a bargain price that most racing fans should find hard to ignore. Drifting, as the game points out, is the sport of being in control of being out of control. The interface is amazingly eleg…

Review Majic Jungle Software By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Chopper 2 Review

Way back in the 'way back when' the Apple II was host to a neat side-scrolling action title called Choplifter. Over two years ago, this genre saw a revival on the App Store thanks to the Chopper series and now, after a long wait, fans of the original can get their hands on this juicy and surprisingly featured sequel for their iDevice of choice. The basic controls are incredibly simple and intuitive to learn, requiring tilt-based movement to direct your helicopter with precision around…

Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night Review

Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night Review

Konami's latest release for the App Store seems to have come straight out of left field and Castlevania fans can now fill their vampire-slaying addictions on their iDevices. That is, however, only if you're up for exchanging action-platforming with a Puzzle Quest inspired remake of Symphony of the Night (SotN) in the aptly named 'Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night'. The transition from action-RPG to puzzle-RPG is surprisingly smooth, with players still needing to explore Dracula'…

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Ecco the Dolphin Review

Once again, SEGA has dragged one of their premium titles from the 90's kicking and screaming on to the App Store and the lucky pick this time is Ecco the Dolphin. This loveable aquatic mammal has been left behind to discover why his pod was sucked up in to the sky and he'll travel around the globe and time to get to the bottom of things. SEGA's Genesis emulator for the App Store is put in to overdrive to get Ecco blasting his way through the seas and the controls are surprisingly good…

Dogfight 1951 Review

Review Treehouse Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Dogfight 1951 Review

For a long time, developers just couldn't get enough of the World War 1 and 2 eras, but now that many of them have decided to explore the modern era it's almost refreshing to jump back to something more 'classic'. '1951 - World War One' by Treehouse is based in an alternate history setting, with the first World Wars never occurring and after a technological collapse the world has gone to war in the early 50's. Gameplay couldn't be simpler as you start a career as one of three currentl…

Hero of Sparta II Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Hero of Sparta II Review

No, it's not just you. I've got an overwhelming sense that I've been here before too, but if it has to be said Hero of Sparta II (HoS2) by Gameloft has kept it's standards high and in this latest installment in the saga of Argos you'll go head to head against, well, just about everything that moves. However before you get to chopping the obligatory horde of undead and mythical creatures, you'll have to brace yourself for some mighty fine examples of how voice acting shouldn't be done.…

Frogatto Review

Review Lost Pixel By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Frogatto Review

In what seems to be a running theme for the App Store, Frogatto by Lost Pixel is the latest in PC-to-iPhone conversions for gamers to enjoy, checking all the usual boxes of modern pixel-art, chip-tune tracks and platforming gameplay that puts the pants of classic gamers in a bunch. There's nothing out of the ordinary with the basic d-pad and two-button controls that most platformers have tried to implement, however Frogatto seems to have troubles registering commands and at times can…

Pool Bar - Online Hustle Review

Sometimes it's nice to keep things simple and elegant; no strings attached, just a game you can casually chip away at while passing the time.

Review Enter-Brain-Ment By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Somersault Review

Somersault is the brain-child of award winning developer Enter-Brain-Ment and for a lot of people its release on the App Store has been a long wait. The original title, released for Mac and PC gained a strong following and it's easy to see why when you try out its fast paced gameplay packed in to a vibrant otherworldly setting. First and foremost, the App Store version feels incredibly solid and the basic gameplay of drawing platforms to bounce Flip around the screen is almost flawles…

Over the course of 18 stages you'll learn how to master the Flipstone's, harvesting their powers to create combos and complete over 80 different challenges.
