Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Review

With Sonic the Hedgehog being on every electronic device that's in some way wired to the internet (and possibly on some varieties of toasters), it was only a matter of time before the sequel made its debut. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was a landmark title for the Genesis (or Mega Drive for those of you outside the US) that is still one of the consoles highest selling games. Much like the port of Sonic the Hedgehog for the iPhone the controls are simplified with a virtual d-pad for movement a…

MIKADO DEFENDERS Review

Review TAITO Corporation By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
MIKADO DEFENDERS Review

With so many different tower-defense games to choose from on the iPhone, it's hard to believe that a company like TAITO would take the risk of competing with such a large crowd. Thankfully their new title Mikado Defenders is a stand-out from the crowd, with its sumi-e inspired artwork and unique spin on the tower-defense gameplay. Each map in the campaign provides a series of paths for enemies to traverse on their way to your castle, with limited spots available for placement of your…

CHAOS RINGS Review

Chaos Rings is the latest JRPG published by Square Enix for the App Store and with a pedigree developer like Media.Vision at the helm, this is more than your average RPG.

Icarus-X Review

Review The Quadsphere By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Icarus-X Review

What could be more exhilarating than rocketing along at super-sonic speeds while blasting away enemies? Icarus-X doesn't think much else is needed with its challenging vertical shoot'em-up gameplay that can border on the impossible for some. Two standard SHMUP control schemes are available for players to use. The default 'Direct' scheme moves your ship to the top of your finger and follows it as you swipe around the screen, while the alternative 'Relative' scheme moves the ship relati…

Azkend HD iPad Review

Review 10tons Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Azkend HD iPad Review

Azkend HD brings 10tons' beautiful puzzler to the iPad along with even more stunning visual upgrades. As with most iPad 'remakes' there's not a lot of difference between the iPhone original and its 'bigger' iPad version, but small gameplay tweaks gives Azkend another breath of fresh-air that might sway those yet to be convinced. Azkend is essentially another match-3 game with a twist. Instead of swapping tiles, players must manipulate the board by drawing paths along the hexagonal gri…

Audi A1 Beat Driver Review

Review VEEMEE By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Audi A1 Beat Driver Review

Audi A1 Beat Driver by VEEMEE may feel like an excessive attempt at marketing, but instead of the usual 'racer' that most people would expect they've decided to opt for a music rhythm game. 'A rhythm game?' I hear you ask? Why yes, VEEMEE has paired great new rock tracks with gameplay taken from the popular indie PC game 'Audiosurf' and throws Audi branding in to the mix to come up with a cocktail that's surprisingly palatable. Similar to most rhythm games, 'beats' appear in multiple…

Review Josh Nadelberg By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Connext Review

If you owned a personal computer in the early 90s you might just remember a good old classic like Pipe Mania (also known as Pipe Dreams). This puzzler required players to lay down a path of pipes to reach a goal, sometimes with hilariously convoluted results. Connext by Josh Nadelberg is a game with roots in Pipe Mania and is just as addictive as ever. Players are given a large hexagonal grid to lay out the tiles randomly assigned to them. The field can be dragged around or zoomed in…
