Project "Thor" Review

Review Jury Shortki By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Project "Thor" Review

Project Thor by Jury Shortki is a bit of an odd-ball when it comes to classification. Strictly speaking it's another castle-defense game, but replace castle with planet and defense with Arkanoid. If nothing else, Project Thor demands attention for being so genuinely unique. It's hard to describe the gameplay, but it goes a little something like this: While defending a new planet for humanity, you control a giant shield that reflects incoming attacks while building a large temporary "o…

Game Preview: WordSearch Rush

Game Preview: WordSearch Rush

Word search games aren't exactly the most popular games available on the App Store. They tend to be more for a niche crowd of puzzle lovers with super-human eyesight. I mean honestly... those grids can be HUGE. And on such a tiny screen? Not a great combo. YouTube Preview: WordSearch Rush by UK developers We Are Colin aims to not only make word search games playable, but genuinely fun. Their twist on the gameplay involves time-based combo bonuses for quickly finding words in a 7x7 (or occasionally 8x8) grid and extra points for selecting the words backwards. Unlike some word search games a list of words isn't provided for you, but instead each level gives a topic from which 7 wor…


Orba - Color Smasher Review

Review Kieffer Bros. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Orba - Color Smasher Review

Before we get any further in to this review - yes, Orba by the Kieffer Brothers is little more than another three-match game for the App Store, but before you automatically switch off it's genuinely worth your time. With its polished design and more-ish gameplay, you'll find yourself gravitating back to Orba just because it fills those 30s gaps of free-time in your day perfectly. Gameplay is basic and requires you to tap groups of three or more orbs to clear them from the screen. The…

Ice Bullet Review

Review David Fernandez Vara By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 4 months ago
Ice Bullet Review

If there's one thing certain about the Olympics (summer or winter), is that there will be many videogames made to capatilize on the events. Bobsleigh is one such event that seems like a good idea for a videogame and a great idea for an iphone game, especially using tilt controls. Ice Bullet sets out to deliver a Bobsleigh experience on the iphone, but does it replicate the speed and danger of its real life counterpart? Control is tilt based, with leaning forward used for braking aroun…


Chromixa Review

Review Wet Nose Design Ltd By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 4 months ago
Chromixa Review

Chromixa began life as an art installation based on creator Simon Watson's fascination with light. A handful of development time later and we have a light based puzzle game for the iphone. The goal is to create shapes of a solid colour out of overlaying smaller pieces of different colours, much like a jigsaw. Control is all touch and drag. Upon touching a piece, it can be dragged anywhere on screen or the large wheel can be used to rotate it. If you ever get confused about which colou…

Mega Man® II Review

Review Beeline Interactive, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 4 months ago
Mega Man® II Review

This is a difficult review to write. Mega Man II is this reviewer's favourite videogame of all time. This 1988 release on the NES has been ported to the iphone with a whole new streamlined experience. Dr. Wily is at again, and it's up to Megaman to stop his nefarious schemes. This iphone port comes with a few options that affect controls and gameplay. The game can be played in portrait or landscape view. Portrait makes the touch joystick and buttons harder to use while landscape featu…

Guardian Knight Review

Review Lineholic By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 4 months ago
Guardian Knight Review

Guardian Knight describes itself as a tower defense game, but this doesn't really define the gameplay. Sure, there are monsters that spawn trying to attack the princess you have sworn to protect, and you gain exp to upgrade your abilities, but that's where the comparions end. It's more of an action RPG, with the princess spending each level travelling from point A to B, while you attack everything in your sight to keep her safe. Control is touch and drag based. Movement and attacking…

De Blob Revolution Review

Review THQ Inc. By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 4 months ago
De Blob Revolution Review

That colourful blob freeing his people from the mediocrity of grayscale is back on the iphone, but this time round, it's a puzzle game. There are buildings where the graydians are trapped by INKT agents, and Blob has to make his way to the exit on each level while rescuing as many of them as possible. You can either tap or drag to lay down Blob's path. The puzzle element enters in that Blob cannot cross his own painted path once it's been layed down, so you have to work out the optima…

Funkyball Worlds Review

Review Handmark, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Funkyball Worlds Review

Sometimes it's frustrating to find that a new App that strives to be more than just a simple mechanic palmed off as the entire game itself. Funkyball Worlds by Handmark is a stand-out from the most other physics-based platformers thanks to its charming elegance that makes it easy to pick up and play, but hard to put down. The trick to Funkyball is all in the friction. Levels consist of a series of platforms that need to be navigated while avoiding traps as you charge your way to the g…
