FEATURE ARTICLE: Just Another Phase of Marketing? Movie-Game Adaptations

FEATURE ARTICLE: Just Another Phase of Marketing? Movie-Game Adaptations

In the age of television, online entertainment, computer games and torrent downloads, movie studios have to compete even harder for a piece of the market share. With production costs and actors wages increasing, and a high demand for epic digital effects, a simple movie release along with a Happy Meal promotion is no enough to get, using the industry term 'butts on seats'. Studios have to exploit virtually every marketing avenue available, and the iPhone is now a part of the equation.  The initial cinematic release of a film usually equates to less than half of a blockbusters success, the opening weekend determines the rate of return on investment, and in previous decades, huge profits…

Hip Hop All Star Review

Review iwin, Inc. By Kelly Mitchell, 4 years, 8 months ago
Hip Hop All Star Review

Slap down the beat, turn up the music and scratch your way to DJ-Stardom with Hip Hop All Star. Starting off as an amateur DJ, the player must scratch and cut their way through each level battling other rival DJs on the way to fulfil their hopes of becoming the next DJ superstar. The controls are very suitable for this style of game. Players must tap their finger on the correct notes as the record spins and hold their finger down on the screen for long notes. Although this sounds like…

DaVinci's Secret Machines Review

Review Aboveground Systems LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
DaVinci's Secret Machines Review

Davinci's Secret Machines by Aboveground Systems is another take on the physics sim puzzle set of games already in abundance on the App Store. It's a fairly simple offering for the genre, but one that still challenges players to think laterally to solve the myriad of puzzles on offer. Puzzles in physics simulators tend to be challenging thanks to the way complex machines end up becoming chaotic and prone to wild results from tiny changes. Davinci's Secrets is no big improvement here a…

Super Shock Football Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 8 months ago
Super Shock Football Review

Super Shock Football is a throwback to the old electric football machines that had tiny players moving around a vibrating football field. Players must strategize and use different plays, set up team positions and hope that they manage to get a touchdown as all player movement is randomised to mimic the old vibrating game machines. Players are limited in regards to the amount of control they have over their team but as mentioned, plays and tactics can be selected and team members can b…

Virtual Villagers 3: The Secret City Review

Review Last Day of Work By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Virtual Villagers 3: The Secret City Review

Virtual Villagers 3 by Last Day of Work is the latest installment of the series that combines puzzles with a fascinating voyeuristic style of gameplay that takes The Sims and gives it a Survivor TV series spin. A lot has gone in to transferring this game to the iPhone from the PC and Mac, but something was lost in translation during the process. The main set of controls only require you to drag and drop villagers between destinations, however this can be quite difficult as the menus,…

Angry Birds Review

Review Rovio Entertainment Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Angry Birds Review

Angry Birds is the kind of physics sim come castle demolisher that follows on from games like Crush the Castle. Clickgamer.com may not have evolved the game too much, but smashing the defenses of your sworn enemy can be fun even if things do require a bit too much trial and error. Birds are launched at your foes via a slingshot you control simply through drag gestures. You can scroll the screen via dragging, but this is most useful after your first shot to follow the line of trajector…

'Tapping' into Christmas

News By Callum Webster, 4 years, 8 months ago
'Tapping' into Christmas

With the holidays growing closer, we are beginning to see some games in the App Store putting on a Christmas visard, just in time for that period of excessive spending which is December. We're also seeing some original Christmas releases, and offcourse, a waste basket full of puzzle games and quizzes. Giving Christmas a comical, and quite bloody angle, is Trigger Happy Christmas by Games Faction, the guys who created Ink Invaders. We'd always been weary of those little Elf's, and now, you can help Santa slaughter all of them! The game is full of comical animation, and a setting which looks like a cross between a gingerbread village and South Park. Another addition to this Slaughterhouse Ch…

Review Polished Play, LLC By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 8 months ago
Invisible Links Review

Invisible Links is a line drawing game where players must play golf on a small piece of paper. However, the golf course is drawn on the paper with invisible ink and will fade away after you take your shot. Meaning you’ll have to memorise a clear path to the hole in order to get the best score you can. Players can practise their shots at any time by dragging the ball from the tee across the game course using their finger. When you are confident enough to take the shot, you’…

Smashed (Full) Review

Smashed is a physics based game where players must demolish large structures and towers of crates as effectively as possible to rack up their highscore. The game also boasts an interesting story for players to work through, which is quite unusual for a physics game but certainly a welcomed addition. Players begin their training in site demolition and are given instructions on how to destroy wooden crates and other objects. You destroy objects by tapping on them and earn extra points b…

GHOSTS'N GOBLINS GOLD KNIGHTS Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
GHOSTS'N GOBLINS GOLD KNIGHTS Review

It's fairly common for older "classic" games to get a port on the iPhone, whether it be as an emulated copy, a stylized clone, or a complete overhaul. Ghosts'n Goblins Gold Knights by CAPCOM attempts to bring the classic arcade game to the iPhone while mashing modern styles together. Once you're in the game you'll find yourself presented with the familiar platform controls of a virtual d-pad on the left and attack/jump buttons on the right. They do take up a considerable amount of scr…

I Dig It Expeditions Review

I Dig It Expeditions is the next release in the I Dig It series and not only offers players changes to the game format and displays but also to the game mode and story itself. Players must still uncover more hidden fossils, treasures and other goodies, without destroying their dig vehicle or running out of fuel. Players drill into the earth by using the on screen joystick and like the original, players can drill in any direction but upwards. However, players will need to drill deep in…
