Cosmo Kid: Bounce the Galaxy! Review

Bounce bounce bounce! Cosmo Kid wants to see the stars and visit far off worlds. With the help of his elastic band and the mysterious but friendly Kukkaja flower people, he might just make it on his journey. The elastic used to bounce Cosmo into the heavens is drawn on screen with your finger. It can be drawn in a straight line or a curve, which affects the speed and direction of Cosmo depending on how he hit it. The higher you fly, the more Kukkaja you meet. Some are obstacles, but o…

My Brute Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 4 months ago
My Brute Review

My Brute is a combat and levellng game in the same genre as games like Mafia Wars. You create a character and academy, and then fight other real opponents around the world to level up, and achieve new techniques and weapons. Like Mafia Wars, you only have a certain number of fights you can engage in each day, but can purchase the ability to play more via ingame DLC. The game is pretty much on auto pilot. The fights themselves are taken care of via the computer and all you can do is wa…

Electric Box Review

Review Candystand.com By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 4 months ago
Electric Box Review

Games like 'The Incredible Machine' were great fun as you got to use a bunch of simple objects to manipulate your way to a goal. Electric Box is quite similar, only the goal is to transfer the flow of electricity from the on switch to the target using different kinds of energy conductors and transferal devices. Control is all touch and drag. The puzzles are layed out on a grid, and all the objects (from steam machines to magnets to lasers) can be placed anywhere, tapped on for a descr…

Speaking of 'Chaos Rings' - First Trailer Released!

Speaking of 'Chaos Rings' - First Trailer Released!

I guess Square Enix isn't fooling around with this release. A few weeks after posting new staff at game studio Media.Vision, Final Fantasy Ring picked up on the news and Famitsu got a hold on the game's name, 'Chaos Rings'. Youtube Trailer: Personally I'm blown away by just how good this game looks - easily comparable (if not better) than Final Fantasy 8 on the Playstation. Touch Arcade forum member GDSage has provided more details - and English trailer and screenshots are apparently on the near horizon.

ZombieSmash Review

Review Zynga Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
ZombieSmash Review

Sure, you could keep throwing knights and goblins and other creepy crawlies in to pits of fire or feed them to your pet dragon, but why do that when you could be enjoying ZombieSmash! by German developer Gamedoctors? With all the charm of games like Plants vs. Zombies and physics inspired mayhem straight out of Home Alone, it's a game that keeps on giving well after you're done with the campaign. In a bid to separate itself from other flick-based castle defense games, ZombieSmash! sho…

Aftermath Review

Review TwoHeads Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Aftermath Review

If you want to take a more artsy view on 'zombies' in media, you could say that they've been used to represent everything from "man's inhumanity to man" to "convenient comedy sidekick". Aftermath by TwoHeads isn't your average twin-stick zombie shooter, it's almost art. Despite being so short, it's an atmospheric experience that'll remind you just why zombies are so scary. The missions follow a tiny story arc that about your survivor's attempts to navigate through and eventually escap…

FFXIII Image Gallery - Rockefeller Edition?

News By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
FFXIII Image Gallery - Rockefeller Edition?

Critics and fans are polarized about just how good Final Fantasy XIII is as the latest major entry in the Final Fantasy series. Square Enix is no stranger to merchandising their products and if you're a fan of their RPGs you might be used to having your wallet gouged, but would you be willing to pay $8.99 for images on your iPhone? Final Fantasy XIII: Larger-than-Life Gallery is just that - a unique collection of artwork and calendars featuring characters from the game. So just how does a set of images (that will no doubt find their way to fan-created sites and forums anyway) end up costing so much? The images are in fact high-definition and can be zoomed in and out of to explore the deta…

'74-Days Of The Smartphone' or 'Just How Well Did They Sell?'

'74-Days Of The Smartphone' or 'Just How Well Did They Sell?'

So which smartphone is leading the market? Just how do you judge who's "winning" in this competitive mobile-gadget arena? After compiling sales for the first 74 days of each major smartphone's release, mobile phone analysis firm Flurry has revealed that the Droid sold 50,000 more units than the iPhone in the same period. Flurry blogger Peter Farago provides some insight as to how Motorola might have managed to eke out more sales than Apple for their product (incidentally, 74 days is how long it took Apple to reach 1 million sales from the the iPhone 1G's launch). "Motorola Droid launched over 2.5 years after the iPhone 1G. (Nov 2009 vs. July 2007). When the iPhone launched, consumers' conc…


Artilect Pro Review

Review Yuri Brigance By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 4 months ago
Artilect Pro Review

Artilect by Atomic Cactus is a puzzle game in which you take turns against a human or AI controlled opponent, trying to change the colour of orbs to reach your opponent's goal. It's also very difficult as the AI is brutal even on the early stages. What then is it, that makes this game so hard to put down? Control is all touch based. Each level consists of green orbs between the two goals, with the game starting in the middle. Upon touching a green orb, you change it to your colour, dr…

Cubetrix 3D Review

Review Mobicle Co.,Ltd. By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 4 months ago
Cubetrix 3D Review

Did you ever play a match three gem game and think, "I want these colours to be in cubes that i can push from the outside?" No? Well too bad cause that's what Cubetrix 3D is. Those tricky cubes need to be pushed to form lines of three of the same colour which will then explode, sending the rest careening together, hopefully leading to more explosions. Ok, so maybe the tone is a little melodramatic, but that's the basic idea. There are three buttons on screen. Two are used to move the…

Sailboat Championship PRO Review

Do you fancy yourself nautically minded? Do you watch the America's Cup every year? If so, i assume you're a fan of sailing, and if that is the case, you should probably check out Sailboat Championship Pro, a game where you must control your yacht around a course in order to achieve the fastest lap times possible. There are multiple levels of control from manning the sails, to steering, but you can have the computer handle the sails while you concentrate on catching the wind. These co…
