Blue Skies 3GS Review

Review Chris Egerter By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 7 months ago
Blue Skies 3GS Review

Since the 3GS came out last year, not many games have required its use, most likely due to the fact that many iphone customers have earlier models. Chris Egerter found a solution by creating a graphical update for his game Blue Skies to take advantage of 3GS graphical features. As a new recruit at Blue Skies Air Force Academy, you learn to fly a helicopter and engage in battle with both air and ground forces. You control your aircraft via tilting your iphone in the direction you wish…

Rise of the Triad: Dark War Review

Review Mobila Interactive, LLC By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 7 months ago
Rise of the Triad: Dark War Review

Originally developed by Apogee software in 1995, Rise of the Triad is a FPS boiled down to its elements. Get to the exit of each level while collecting as many points and inflicting as much damage upon your enemies as possible with a multitude of fun weapons and powerups. Does this iphone port capture the fun of the original however? Mobila have ported the game with a huge selection of control options, but none seem to be optimal. After testing all four main ones, this reviewer found…

Review PopCap By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 7 months ago
Plants vs. Zombies Review

Popcap is known for some very popular addictive titles and has had some great success in porting these to the iphone. Now, just short of a year of its PC release, the cutesy tower defense game Plants vs. Zombies is now available on this mobile device. There is a pack of zombies roaming the neighbourhood and as a local homeowner, you must use the power of your garden (and the help of Crazy Dave) to repel the undead horde. Control is fantastic. Every action is a touch away, and even whe…

Doodle Army Review

Review Chad Towns By Kym Holmes, 4 years, 7 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, 7 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…

Giana Sisters Review

Review Kaasa solution GmbH By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 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, 7 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…

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.

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…
