PAC-Match Party Review

PAC-Match Party Review

Those who remember Google's recent logo-replacement might be aware that PAC-MAN has hit its 30th anniversary and the pop-culture icon has been popping up everywhere.

By now most people should be familiar with the basic controls for three-match titles and PAC-Match does very little to change things up. Various icons representing the various fruits…

AirAttack Review

Review Art In Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
AirAttack Review

It can't be said that developers Art In Games didn't strike while the iron was hot and they've promptly released their new shoot'em-up AirAttack after the disappointing 1942: FIRST STRIKE failed to impress. While both of these games have a similar vibe it's hard to make a genuine comparison as AirAttack simply blows the opposition out of the water. There are three standard control schemes to choose from and players can take their pick from the available touch, tilt or virtual stick op…

StarDunk - Online Basketball in Space Review

Review Godzilab By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
StarDunk - Online Basketball in Space Review

If basketball, online gaming and the 'flick' genre of minigames were put in a blender, you'd still only just start to approach the kind of game StarDunk by Godzilab is like. Players can choose between left or right handed orientation, placing the ball and hoop at opposite sides of the screen depending on your choice. To aim, all you have to do is place your finger down and drag around the screen to set your throw strength and angle. An indicator helps to align your shot and while this…

Star Wars: Battle for Hoth Review

Review THQ Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Star Wars: Battle for Hoth Review

Star Wars: Battle for Hoth by THQ is almost a perfect storm of nerdy ideas. Lets run the list: Star Wars? Check. Tower Defense? Check. Situated on Hoth? Check. I mean, just how can this go wrong? Those familiar with tower defense titles won't be too surprised by the basic controls and gameplay of Battle for Hoth, with units slowly being added to your roster as you progress through the main campaign to highlight their use and importance in your arsenal. In a small twist, these 'towers'…

Helsing's Fire Review

Review Clickgamer.com By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Helsing's Fire Review

Van Helsing is a name that has become synonymous with horror stories and in particular as a vampire hunter thanks to the character's origins in Bram Stoker's Dracula. It's somewhat appropriate that the Dutch doctor should be revived by Amsterdam based developers Ratloop for Clickgamer's latest puzzling title, Helsing's Fire. In order to defeat the invading horde of Dracula's monstrous regiment you'll have to illuminate and subsequently dispatch them with color-coded tonics. It's an in…

Train Conductor 2: USA Review

Review The Voxel Agents By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Train Conductor 2: USA Review

It's been almost six months, but The Voxel Agents have already released the sequel to their incredibly popular action-puzzle title Train Conductor and it's taken the locomotive madness from the Outback and straight to the heartland of the USA. A lot of streamlining of the gameplay has occurred since the last release, with only five locations to explore. To offset this downsizing each area now features an entirely unique gameplay style to explore, with the first two introducing players…

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
The Jim and Frank Mysteries – The Blood River Files Review

'The Jim and Frank Mysteries - The Blood River Files' is one of Chillingo's latest releases and draws an easy comparison to the Professor Layton series on the Nintendo DS.

The game's basic controls are varied, with different gestures being required for each puzzle you encounter. While adventuring you can take part in a small hidden object game to earn Eureka points…

Super Laser: The Alien Fighter Review

Super Laser: The Alien Fighter Review

EpicForce, the developers behind 'Super Laser: The Alien Fighter' compare their new shoot'em-up to the classic days of Arcade titles that would have punters popping quarters in, one after the other, just to master them. It shouldn't come as a surprise, but this is hardly hyperbole considering that this comes from the same team that developed 'iFighter', a real high water mark for SHMUPs on the AppStore. Players can take their pick of three basic control styles, maneuvering their ships…

Wizzley Presto and the Vampire's Tomb Review

Review Craig Rothwell By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Wizzley Presto and the Vampire's Tomb Review

There was once a time when puzzle-based platformers ruled the roaming landscape of gaming and the Dizzy series lived large during this time, challenging players to solve its labyrinthine series of puzzles. Sadly, not everyone had the patience to crack the thick shell of logic puzzles combined with platforming agility, so it's odd that 'Wizzley Presto and the Vampires Tomb' by Spellbound Games decided to run with this strange throw-back in gameplay. Traditional d-pad, virtual stick or…

Modern Conflict™ Review

Review Clickgamer.com By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Modern Conflict™ Review

It'd be no surprise if you started to get a bit of deja'vu while playing Modern Conflict by Clickgamer. Judgement Day, a title that has since been pulled from the App Store, was the original incarnation of this action-oriented game and while its somewhat controversial theme has been stripped back, the Galcon-esque gameplay remains. Players can control multiple bases that continually generate tanks or helicopters to bulk up their army. Depending on their size, bases can generate a limi…
