Doodle Army Review

Review Chad Towns By Kym Holmes, 4 years, 5 months ago
Doodle Army Review

Since the inception of iPhone gaming, it seems stick figures have found their new home. Doodle Army is the latest of these in which you play the stick figure version of Rambo, running through 2D levels, mowing down enemies in your path with a plethora of different weapons. The controls are fairly standard with on screen buttons for left, right and jump, as well as the option to either drag your finger where you wish to shoot, or to use another controller button to do the aiming. These…

Stair Dismount Universal Review

Review Secret Exit Ltd. By Kym Holmes, 4 years, 5 months ago
Stair Dismount Universal Review

Pushing someone down a flight of stairs is dangerous and not recommended. In the case of Stair Dismount, it's not only acceptable, it's your objective. The more bones you break and injuries you cause, the more points you score. Of course it's only a dummy, so don't try this at home. The controls are fairly straight forward: position an arrow on the dummy as your "push zone" and then click the large button when the meter reaches the strength you want to use. This will send your ragdoll…

Review Kaasa solution GmbH By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Giana Sisters Review

After the market crash for games in the early 80s, the rest of the decade was dominated by the rise of Nintendo and 8-bit gaming. Super Mario Bros clones were common, but none went so far as The Great Giana Sisters in 1987 who had to pull their game from the shelves, but all is not dead for the Giana Sisters as Armin Gessert and Bad Monkee resurrect their franchise for the App Store. Giana Sisters is a basic platformer and uses four basic virtual buttons to move left and right, jump a…

DOOM II RPG Review

Review id Software By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
DOOM II RPG Review

Role-playing games (RPGs) have had a long and interesting history, stemming from text based adventures that later became action orientated, turn-based dungeon crawlers. These complex games were often too complex for a broader audience to enjoy, but as gamers grew so too did the RPG. id Software's latest game on the App Store is Doom II RPG and proves that there's still some teeth to the old dungeon crawler. In keeping with id's experimentation with simpler interfaces for touch devices…

Review Indeeo, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
AirStrike Defense Review

Played Flight Control and Harbor Master to death? Need a new line drawing fix? Then you might want to give Airstrike Defense by Indeeo Games a try. In this mission based game you take control of not only ships that you need to steer from danger, but bombers to attack the enemy ships, and often this can happen in the same level. Like most line drawing games, to move your craft, you tap them and draw a line to where you want them to move. As the ships you can double tap for a boost, to…

Daisy Mae's Alien Buffet Review

Daisy Mae's Alien Buffet Review

Twin stick shooters are becoming a popular genre in the appstore, but it takes something special to stand out from the crowd. IUGO have thrown out Daisy Mae's Alien Buffet onto the iphone, which is a solid entry into the genre with a grindhouse feel, fun weapons, and rapidly increating difficulty. The standard twin stick controls are only the default for Daisy Mae. Two other controls schemes are available, one replacing the shooting stick with a button, and for those looking for an ea…

Tehra Dark Warrior Review

Review StormBASIC Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Tehra Dark Warrior Review

The action adventure hack and slash has been tried many times already for the touch device and has been received with mixed results. While some echo the gameplay of games from home consoles, others have tried their own route to succeeding on a mobile platform. Tehra Dark Warrior by Stormbasic is a sometimes surprising, but ultimately average hack and slasher that doesn't quite manage to excite. Tehra uses a virtual analogue stick with buttons for the attack, block and magic controls.…

Star*Burst Review

Star*Burst Review

Star*Burst is a new match-three game from the excessively named developer Super Happy Fun Fun. This is truly a unique take on the genre combining time-management games with gem matching for some frantic and sometimes frustrating fun. Gems are passed down a multi-row conveyor belt that need to be caught with your paddle and then tossed up one at a time to form matching groups. Bonuses are awarded for more complex patterns and gems can be tossed back onto the conveyor belt if needed. Pe…

Durak Review

Review Lost Token Software LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Durak Review

Card games are often hard to represent accurately in video games. Sure, the rules are easy enough to replicate, but it's so hard to replace the feel of playing a game with real cards and real people. Durak by Lost Token does a great job of making a virtual card game feel realistic and even gives you the ability to play with real opponents. For those that aren't aware of the game, Durak is a card shedding style of play that uses trick-taking rules to establish who wins or loses a round…

Review Brisk Mobile Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Battle for Cydonia Review

2360: Battle for Cydonia by Brisk Mobile is the one of the latest mech shooters available for the App Store. With gameplay that combines real time strategy and action rpgs it's a frantically paced game, though this may not be as exciting as it sounds.

The controls are intuitive and perfect for touch devices, which is a god-send for dealing with the hordes of…
