Arctopia: A Puzzle Game (Chapters 1-14) Review

Review Alexander Williams By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 7 months ago
Arctopia: A Puzzle Game (Chapters 1-14) Review

Arctopia is a chilled out puzzle game that puts players in control of a small penguin as he must extinguish a number of small fires in each level. To do so, you’ll need to move around large ice cubes, create new cubes and manipulate other obstacles. Players control the penguin’s movement by using the onscreen arrows and can create ice cubes by tapping on the snowflake icon. Ice can only be created on a downward diagonal angle and you cannot directly put out flames adding a…

Crazy Turkey Blast Review

If you’ve ever wanted to stand in the middle of a field and shoot turkeys, then Crazy Turkey Blast might be right up your alley. Crazy Turkey Blast is a simple, arcade style point and shoot game where the player simply moves the crosshair around the viewport shooting turkeys as they walk by.

Isaac Newton's Gravity Review

Isaac Newton's Gravity Review

Isaac Newton’s Gravity is the latest physics based puzzle game offering from Namco. The goal of the game is to set up objects within a level so that when you push play, gravity takes its course causing one of the objects to push a red button completing the level. A great deal of effort has gone into the controls, giving the player the ability to rotate the objects and place them in a very intricate fashion. This however, causes some frustration as each piece must be intricately…

Spore™ Creatures Review

Review Electronic Arts By Luke Bartley, 4 years, 7 months ago
Spore™ Creatures Review

Spore. The mere mention of this series instantly brings thoughts of crazy looking critters eating smaller, equally crazy looking critters. This version has hit the appstore, but has failed to evolve into something very interesting. The game has you doing familiar tasks of devouring things smaller than you to increase your DNA pool, allowing you to add more body parts and become a more complex organism. There are a number of other species to interact with. Either attack creatures to wip…

Tumbledrop Review

Review Starfruit Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Tumbledrop Review

Tumbledrop by Starfruit Games is a beguiling and challenging physics puzzler with a cutesy style that borders on excessive. The magic of this App comes from not only attempting to solve puzzles normally, but also how it rewards repeat players. Each level involves solving an intricate puzzle by getting the "pink star" to land on the available safe zone(s). However the challenge comes from attempting to do so while the star starts in a precariously balanced position. Tapping blocks will…

Apple Announces iPad

Apple Announces iPad

Apple Announces iPad Today Apple announced one of their most highly anticipated devices, the iPad. Kind of like a giant iPhone (say 300% scale), the iPad features familiar controls such as the central home button, volume and power on/off, plus it runs off the new iPhone 3.2 OS, not yet to be released on the phone. The touch pads keyboard is a standard QWERTY, for easy laptop typing, no more sore thumbs. There is even word of flash support. There will be an App Store launched for the iPad, beginning with 140,000 pre existing iPhone apps which have compatibility. Apple has also announced an SDK to get the ball rolling on further app development. The device comes with the usual lineup of apps…

Review Massive Hadron By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
TileStorm Review

Lets be honest, sometimes it's not hard to understand why people shy away from games that call themselves "puzzles", because ultimately few people enjoy the idea of being frustrated working out solutions. TileStorm by Massive Hadron walks a thin line between fun and frustration with its tile-sliding puzzles that you'll either love or loathe. Manipulating puzzles couldn't be easier and play much like a regular tile-sliding puzzle. The trick here is to maneuver the pieces to form a path…

Heavy Mach 2 Review

Review IndieAn By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Heavy Mach 2 Review

Heavy Mach 2 by IndiApps is a surprising title, if only because it's a sequel that dares to try a radically new approach to its gameplay. Instead of bouncing your way through a side-scrolling 2D world, your "Mach" is viewed from a top-down view and plays like a tactical action RPG which brings the series closer to serious mech-battles than ever before. Gameplay is controlled using a radically unique single-finger touch system. Touching enemies locks your Mach on to them and fires auto…

geoSpark - WARNING: Highly Addictive! Review

From the culminated efforts of two fantastic developers, GeoSpark is a highly addictive pick-up-and-play game where players must shoot their way to survival by destroying all the geometrical “sparks” whilst trying to achieve the highest score possible. The game can be approached in two ways. You can either take the easier and subsequently longer approach and tap and destroy each of the sparks for 10 points, or if you're feeling more adventurous you can tap on a spark and d…

Commodore 64 Review

Review Manomio LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Commodore 64 Review

For many people, the Commodore 64 (C64) is remembered with equal part nostalgia and frustration. It found its primary market in the UK, but even despite the video game crash of 1983 it still had a home in North America. If you're one of the few people lucky enough to have experienced the superior gameplay the system had at the time Commodore 64 by Manomio might just be for you. Much like Manomio's port of Flashback, this app is a licensed emulator of the C64. The menu system is easy t…

Cross Fingers Review

Review Mobigame By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Cross Fingers Review

Cross Fingers by Mobigames is about as polished as a puzzle game can get on the iPhone with a slick presentation and stunningly simple gameplay that will eat up all of your spare time. The challenge of Cross Fingers is a basic one with players invited to shift blocks of varying size and shape to fill the voids on the screen. Much like tangram puzzles, these voids can be comprised of extremely odd shapes and will require some logic to piece together the final composition. However, this…
