Stickbound FREE! Review

Review Gamenauts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Stickbound FREE! Review

Stickbound by Gamenauts is a tough nut to crack. Using a completely unique style of horizontal endless gameplay based on pole-vaulting your way across surreal landscapes, it's simultaneously one of the most frustrating, yet positively addictive games to play. All that you require to make your way forward is your wits and well timed taps. By tapping on the screen you extend a pole from your character to the ground, pushing yourself further away. Careful timing can spring you high up or…

Silent Swords Zero Review

Review Oniric Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Silent Swords Zero Review

It's surprising that the stealth-platformer has always seemed to sit on the back bench for a lot of gamers. While twitchy platformers can be fun, Silent Swords ZERO manages to slows things down turning small levels in to big challenges that are rewarding to eventually conquer. Little has changed for ZERO, with the controls being as open as the original. Movement is performed by default with a slide bar to keep your speed in check, but variations are available including rhythm-based ta…

Star Wars: Cantina Review

I guess it was really only a matter of time before the App Store was graced with a Star Wars themed management game. You play as Nia Adea in THQ Wireless' latest game Star Wars: Cantina and being the friendly happy-go-lucky lass that you are, you plunge headlong in to the world of managing a cantina to help your friend. Cantina keeps things simple and only requires tapping to perform actions. To counter this simplicity the game quickly throws you in the deep end, serving up more rowdy…

Chrome-8 Review

Chrome-8 Review

Chrome-8 by Far East Asia Development is a pure puzzle experience. This isn't the kind of game that appeals to many people, but anyone who has enjoyed games like PathPix will enjoy the simple challenge that Chrome-8 provides. Each puzzle represents a web of links used to shift the colored orbs on screen. Your goal is to align the colors in such a way that no two colors are linked. This sounds murderously difficult, but two game modes (and a total of 300 puzzles) are available to warm…

Monster Crush - Demolition Review

We've all seen physics simulators used in a slew of games, but few have gone quite so far as Monster Crush by 628 Games.

As the title suggests the main aim of the game is to crush the bad guys, in this case a race of aliens. To pull this…
