Kung Fu Touch Review

Review Kiube mobile By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Kung Fu Touch Review

At first glance it's easy to compare Kung Fu Touch by Kiube Mobile to other successful slashing titles like Fruit Ninja, however the developer assures me that they began work on their product before Halfbrick's release came to light. True or not, this game definitely has its own unique feel, but the stark difference in design philosophy has led this game in a far less successful direction. Your teacher has decided to put himself in harm's way in order to sharpen your Kung Fu skills an…

Galcon Labs is FREE this weekend!

Galcon Labs by Galcon.com is available for free for the next couple of days as apart of the Free App a Day promotion. Checkout our Video Review for Galcon Labs: Real-time Risk type games have become a bit of a hot design choice of late, but most end up feeling like a rehash of all the others while maybe only bringing one new mechanic to the table. Galcon Labs by galcon.com unashamedly keeps the basic gameplay in tact and instead brings multiple game modes to trump others in the genre.... Read the Full Review!

Save Sylva - TD Review

Review LIMING CHEN By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Save Sylva - TD Review

For some, like myself, jumping head-long in to strategy title complete with its deep rule-set and mechanics is just the thing you need to provide a fulfilling distraction. But every now and again all you want is something simple, something polished, something like Save Sylva by clovare. There are only 6 towers in total to manage in Save Sylva, with most of the game being easy enough to complete with the first 4, however the real trick is in upgrading them. Instead of a basic 'level up…

MotoGP 2010 Review

Review iwin, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
MotoGP 2010 Review

Let's not beat around the bush - if you have a major license like MotoGP then there's going to be some minimum expectations for quality. MotoGP 2010 by I-play is, at best, an amusing title to try, but certainly not a racing title worthy of an official license. What is given as 'accessible' controls turns out to be a horrible facsimile of similar racing titles that sport a basic tilt-to-turn and two buttons to brake/accelerate and boost. Acceleration is handled automatically, however t…


Free Fallers Review

Review ChilliJuice By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Free Fallers Review

NOTE: Future updates indicated by the developer could potentially change the final score, so keep an eye out over the next month or so. I love it when a game makes me smile and Free Fallers by ChilliJuice definitely managed to eke out of this stoney-faced and jaded gamer, so it can't be all that bad right? OK, so I'm not THAT jaded, but who doesn't find the idea of free-falling animals diving on to construction vehicles ludicrous enough to enjoy? Certainly not this reviewer. Tigers,…

iShoot 2 Review

Review Naughty Bits By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
iShoot 2 Review

It has been some time since iShoot stormed the App Store and gave people a seriously fun turn-based shooting challenge for their iDevices. With the release of iShoot 2 by Naughty Bits fans of the original might be diving at the opportunity to pick up the sequel, but it might also be worth pausing for a moment as there are a few changes that may not sit well with fans of turn-based shooters. The controls have changed, utilizing two large slide bars near your tank to set the general pow…

Jaws™ Review

Review Fuse Powered Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Jaws™ Review

Is there a new Jaws film I haven't heard about or is Universal studios just after a quick bite of the App Store market? Either way we now have an official Jaws game to play thanks to Bytemark Games, so lets get down to business. You get to play the role of the poor overworked Police Chief Martin Brody in this summer blockbuster re-imagining and you need to keep the swimmers of Amity safe from the irrationally angry and perpetually hungry shark that is Jaws. To do so you'll need to dir…

Monster Dash Review

Review Halfbrick Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Monster Dash Review

Vampires, Demons and Mummies, oh my! ... oh and Zombies. I guess that didn't work so well, but that's ok because unlike my silly intro Halfbrick studios have made the combination work in their latest outing on the App Store, 'Monster Dash'. The new game is ostensibly another horizontal runner and it's only slightly disappointing after the success of Fruit Ninja to see the studio playing it so safe. With that said, this runner isn't quite your average fare, with various monsters provid…

PUZZLE COSMOS Review

Review PONOS By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
PUZZLE COSMOS Review

Puzzle Cosmos by PONOS is a flashy new arcade puzzler that certainly defies simple description, but if Lumines decided to do away with the drag and drop gameplay and replaced it with a cube that you can roll around the tiles then you'd be coming close. Perhaps the reason it's so hard to define is, in part, due to a lack of any help in the form of a tutorial or text guide. Players are dumped straight in to the game with three controls and it's up to them to work out what's going on. Th…

Gravity Runner Review

Review We Are Colin By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Gravity Runner Review

We Are Colin's latest title 'Gravity Runner' is yet another interesting take on the horizontal runner, however instead of merely dealing with deadly pits, spikes and enemies, you'll have to manipulate gravity in order to survive. Controlling gravity is by no means an easy thing to master, especially when you're limited to flipping once per jump. And it's certainly something you'll need to master as each of the game's levels are a gauntlet of deadly pitfalls ready to kill you and throw…
