Aerox Review

Review Synoptical Studios Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Aerox Review

If you've got a steady hand, a bucket-load of patience and a penchant for impossible physics based platforming, then Aerox by Synoptical Studios is the game for you. For everyone else, it's an interesting tilt-controlled platformer that boasts intuitive controls and clever physics that challenge your skills while providing a feast for the eyes. The tilt controls automatically zero based on how you're holding your device at the time the level starts, which is perfect when you're prepar…

Dogfight 1951 Review

Review Treehouse Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Dogfight 1951 Review

For a long time, developers just couldn't get enough of the World War 1 and 2 eras, but now that many of them have decided to explore the modern era it's almost refreshing to jump back to something more 'classic'. '1951 - World War One' by Treehouse is based in an alternate history setting, with the first World Wars never occurring and after a technological collapse the world has gone to war in the early 50's. Gameplay couldn't be simpler as you start a career as one of three currentl…

Hero of Sparta II Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Hero of Sparta II Review

No, it's not just you. I've got an overwhelming sense that I've been here before too, but if it has to be said Hero of Sparta II (HoS2) by Gameloft has kept it's standards high and in this latest installment in the saga of Argos you'll go head to head against, well, just about everything that moves. However before you get to chopping the obligatory horde of undead and mythical creatures, you'll have to brace yourself for some mighty fine examples of how voice acting shouldn't be done.…

Frogatto Review

Review Lost Pixel By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Frogatto Review

In what seems to be a running theme for the App Store, Frogatto by Lost Pixel is the latest in PC-to-iPhone conversions for gamers to enjoy, checking all the usual boxes of modern pixel-art, chip-tune tracks and platforming gameplay that puts the pants of classic gamers in a bunch. There's nothing out of the ordinary with the basic d-pad and two-button controls that most platformers have tried to implement, however Frogatto seems to have troubles registering commands and at times can…

Pool Bar - Online Hustle Review

Sometimes it's nice to keep things simple and elegant; no strings attached, just a game you can casually chip away at while passing the time.

But don't be fooled, they haven't skimped on the details that count and by all means this is a truly gorgeous game to play.

Somersault Review

Review Enter-Brain-Ment By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Somersault Review

Somersault is the brain-child of award winning developer Enter-Brain-Ment and for a lot of people its release on the App Store has been a long wait. The original title, released for Mac and PC gained a strong following and it's easy to see why when you try out its fast paced gameplay packed in to a vibrant otherworldly setting. First and foremost, the App Store version feels incredibly solid and the basic gameplay of drawing platforms to bounce Flip around the screen is almost flawles…

Review Matmi By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Gorillaz - Escape to Plastic Beach Review

Ever since the turn of the century Gorillaz has gone from a funky project by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett and has turned in to a multimedia juggernaut that threatens to consume us all (this may or may not be entirely out of proportion to reality). 'Gorillaz - Escape to Plastic Beach' by Matmi is the latest in media tie-ins for the band and you'll get to take control of the deranged Murdoc as he attempts to reign in the band and defend their island home.

Wild West 3D Rollercoaster Rush Review

Digital Chocolate have had a good run with the 3D Rollercoaster Rush series, adding a few different themes and other basic changes along the way. 'Wild West' is the latest in the series, but instead of the fast-paced thrills of its previous incarnations, this title has taken a completely different direction. The game no longer relies on tilt control alone and now allows players to control the forward/backward movement as well as the tilt via touch controls. Players are still in the bu…

TRON Review

Review Disney By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
TRON Review

TRON Legacy is still half a year away, so it's somewhat odd to get our hands on the movie tie-in game App this early. Sure, there's a marketing angle to be worked here, but I'm not about to look a gift horse in the mouth. TRON for the App Store is an action title where you control a tank from one of three different factions and compete for dominance over the internet. The tank is controlled much like a twin-stick shooter, with two analogue sticks representing the move and shoot functi…
