Florix Review

Florix is a puyo puyo style arcade game set in a flower garden where the player must clear the falling flowers by matching the colours of the petals with other flowers that have previously fallen to the ground. Each flower petal has its own colour. As players eliminate flowers, new ones continue to grow on twigs at the top of the screen and fall to the ground. Players are able to move the flowers by swiping their finger along the screen and can rotate the petals by touching on either…

Bridge Odyssey Review

Review Gameloft By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 6 months ago
Bridge Odyssey Review

Ladies and Gentlemen, the game is Bridge Odyssey and the developer is Gameloft; this time taking its prompts from the Playstation Network release Elefunk and iPhone game Moonlights. Players must try and safely guide their black outline animals across dangerous gaps and ravines by building bridges for them to cross. The simple ‘drag and place’ controls make the game very accessible to players of all ages. But make no mistake, the game can be deceivingly challenging; especia…

Low Grav Racer 2 Review

Review Cobra Mobile Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Low Grav Racer 2 Review

In the same vein as futuristic racers like Wipeout and F-Zero, Low Grav Racer 2 is Cobra Mobile's second attempt at bringing high-speed, face melting combat-based racing to the App Store. Much of the inconsistency that plagued the previous game's controls have returned proving to be too sensitive at slow speeds and almost dead at high speeds, but thankfully the addition of sensitivity options and practice can make this manageable. The physics are fairly fanciful and make it difficult…

Decoder Ring Review

Review babaroga, llc. By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 7 months ago
Decoder Ring Review

Were you ever one of those kids who invented your own alphabet or language? If you were, then prepare to take an unexpected trip down memory lane. Decoder Ring is a crossword type puzzle game where players must decode the strange glyphs and symbols into letters to form words. You’ll use a small rotating decoder ring to match up symbols and letters in the puzzle. You’ll be given a few letters on the board to get you started and from there it’s a case of trial and erro…

METAL GEAR SOLID TOUCH (US) Review

METAL GEAR SOLID TOUCH (US) Review

Metal Gear Solid Touch gears up for big action without the hours of cut scenes players have come to expect from Hideo Kojima. Players take control of Old Snake as he must progress through the story of MGS4 in a number of small fire-fights. Snake must progress through each level by killing the designated number of enemies and avoiding as much damage as possible. Snake is holed up in a small trench like structure and pops out to fire when players tap and hold on the iPhone screen. By dr…

MonsterKill Review

Review Origin8 By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 7 months ago
MonsterKill Review

Boom It Up! Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 7 months ago
Boom It Up! Review

Boom It Up! is a quick reflex arcade game where players must launch a cannon ball as high into the air as possible, much like the barrel shooting mini-games from the Donkey Kong Country series on the Super Nintendo. Obscure references aside, players must launch their cannon ball from one platform to another and blast as high as possible with the limited amount of balls. Players shoot their cannon balls by tapping on the screen and must time their shots correctly or risk crashing to th…

Inotia 2: A Wanderer of Luone Review

Review Com2uS Corp. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Inotia 2: A Wanderer of Luone Review

Inotia: A Wanderer of Luone is the sequel to Com2uS' self proclaimed first touch action RPG on the App Store. It has a lot to live up to, with the first being a fairly basic hack'n'slash that ultimately felt like a game for fans of the genre. In this new adventure a lot more effort has gone into not only the story, but also the gameplay itself, now boasting five classes and the ability to party with two other members. You can choose between using a virtual d-pad or touch screen contro…

Snow Moto Racing Review

Review Dohi Sweden By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Snow Moto Racing Review

Snow Moto Racing is the self proclaimed first snowmobile racing game available on the App Store by Resolution Interactive, but can this bite-sized racer compete against its bigger brothers? The controls are mostly tilt-based, using touches for performing stunts and other minor actions. Turning feels really nice though it may take a bit of initial adjustment to get used to what feels like two-levels of sensitivity while turning. Snow isn't the most common terrain for a racing game to s…

Onslaught from Space Review

Review Scatter Circuit By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 7 months ago
Onslaught from Space Review

While most iPhone games tend to get an edge on the competition by taking steps forward in regards to gameplay and presentation, Onslaught From Space takes steps backwards with its retro 80s arcade and early 3D console style presentation. Your goal is to survive waves of incoming enemies for as long as possible and various weapon power-ups will help you to do so. Players must destroy all incoming spaceships and other objects by adjusting and tilting their iPod to aim and tapping the sc…

Finger Dancer Review

Review Vitaly Pronkin By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Finger Dancer Review

There aren't too many games that really make use of the multi-touch features available on the iPhone, but Finger Dancer by mifki makes multi-touch almost the only gameplay mechanic. Much about this game relies on simplicity, from its graphics to the available features, but they all serve a deceptively addictive competitive game. Finger Dancer relies on the player using two different kinds of touches, either a direct tap or an extended hold. The challenge comes in managing to perform t…
