Bounce On 2: Drallo's Demise Review

Review Team Phobic By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Bounce On 2: Drallo's Demise Review

Barring the excellent return to form of Sonic Rush, SEGA have had troubles recapturing what made Sonic the Hedgehog such a great platformer. It's hard to shake the feeling that Team Phobic have cracked an element of what made Sonic so good and have distilled it in to their latest game Bounce On 2: Drallo's Demise. There are two basic movement controls with the default being tilt based, but for those who are more comfortable with virtual pads buttons are also available. The level of co…

App Gifting - Boon Or Boondoggle

App Gifting - Boon Or Boondoggle

After having had the ability to gift songs for so long now it's nice to know that you can finally gift an App to a friend. Generally speaking this was a great new feature for everyone involved, with developers getting a handful of extra sales from people pushing products for them and for consumers who now had more options for gifts. So what's so sinister about the Gift feature? Nothing on the face of it, but if you're a crafty company you could drop the price of your App to 'Free', gift your App to customers who have given you their email, then watch as your game rockets up the charts. Initially this sounds like a great idea, with customers getting free apps and developers getting almost…

Hottie Hookups Review

Hottie Hookups is not the first App for the programmer and designer at BigStack Studios who is well known for the Sally Salon and Spa series of management games.

The Saboteur™ Review

Review Hands-On Mobile By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
The Saboteur™ Review

The Saboteur, released by EA for major consoles was received with mild interest. Set in 1940's occupied France, you play Sean Devlin on his quest for revenge against the Nazis. Hands-On Mobile has just released an iPhone version of the game, but just like its bigger brother on the 360 and PS3 it's a great game that just manages to miss the mark in every way. Sean is controlled from an angled top-down 2D perspective as he runs around causing general amounts of mayhem and destruction. A…

ZENONIA® 2 Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
ZENONIA® 2 Review

There's really not much to say about Gamevil's latest release of Zenonia 2. If you were a fan of Zenonia or of Action RPGs in any way, then this sequel is immediately worth grabbing thanks to a plethora of tiny upgrades that have made a great RPG even better. For those that still need convincing, read on. Much like the first in the series, gameplay revolves around an Action RPG style that's easy to pick up and play. The virtual pad moves your character, while a large action button per…

Star Wars Meets Diner Dash?

Star Wars Meets Diner Dash?

The iPhone has some interesting Star Wars themed apps on the horizon, but none seem as interesting as THQ Wireless' take on the management genre set in the iconic 'Cantina' setting from Star Wars IV. THQ tipped off Mobile Entertainment about the game including a small draft blurb: "Your task is to see that the right beverage finds its way to the right customer. And don’t keep them waiting, some of the customers are real troublemakers! Working towards your daily quota, accuracy and speed are essential. As a reward for a job well done, outfit your cantina with decorations and attractions to appeal to even the most difficult customers." Preview Screenshots: via Moblle Entertain…

Burple Fish : The Burping Free Falling Action Game Review

Clowns, whatever you're position on them as entertainers, are typically associated with fairly surreal situations. If you could slip in to the dreams of a clown after a big successful show near the seaside, you might just find a resemblance to Russ Kumro's latest App, Burple Fish. Should you be fascinated enough to delve in to the halls of madness, you'll be confronted by a simple premise: Get your fish to the ocean without him exploding from built up 'gas'. As you fall from the sky y…

HexaRot Review

Review Jozsef Kern By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
HexaRot Review

Three-match games are a dime a dozen, with many games even opting to include them as a gameplay mechanic with an entirely separate genre. HexaRot by Jozsef Kern trys to stand out by being more of a brain-teaser, replacing a traditional grid with hexagonal wheels that must be turned to line-up patterns. There's more than a bit of adjustment required in mastering this new matching technique and at times it borders on being more like a puzzle than a quick-fire three match game. The Timed…

muBlip Review

Review para9 By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
muBlip Review

I'm not sure if I've somehow been co-opted in to an educational game while playing muBlip by para9. On the face of it the game is an Ouendan-style rhythm game with fresh electronic chiptune beats, but to mix things up the game uses a Simon-says watch and repeat set up to add an amazing new kind of challenge to the genre. Each track is broken up in to phrases where the player watches the computer play the beat using on screen patterns and then must repeat the phrase as accurately as po…
