Sketch Nation Shooter Review

Review Engineous Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Sketch Nation Shooter Review

When Little Big Planet was released an interesting article was written discussing the game's successes and failures, but one part in particular stuck with me. Paraphrased it goes along the lines of 'not everyone is a game designer, so why should we expect the games to be better than average?'. Sketch Nation Shooter by Engineous Games has brought a DIY shoot'em-up kit to the App Store, but is it worth the admission price? As a shooter most of the titles are fairly generic, but the exam…

N.Y.Zombies Review

Review Foursaken Media By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
N.Y.Zombies Review

I have to admit, N.Y.Zombies has taken me by surprise. What looked on the surface to be a half-realized zombie shooting gallery turned out to be so compelling that I'm now behind on today's work. Foursaken Media's first entry for the iPhone may be using a tiring premise, but with gameplay this good I'd even be happy defending myself against 'sparkling vampires'. N.Y.Zombies is essentially a 360-degree shooting gallery and has seen various incarnations on the App Store already. Aiming…

Dark Void Zero Review

Review Capcom Interactive, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Dark Void Zero Review

Claimed to be a 20 year old 'lost' title from Capcom's back catalog, Dark Void Zero is a lovingly created 8-bit tie-in for the recent release of Dark Void on major consoles. From its artwork to the controls and tinny soundtrack, Dark Void Zero is full of what made platformers such strong titles 'back in the day'. In keeping with the NES-style theme, Zero uses a virtual d-pad to move and two buttons for jumping and firing. These controls work well to provide 'revolutionary' 8-way firin…

Flight Control HD iPad Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Flight Control HD iPad Review

If you've not played Flight Control by Firemint, then you might be missing out on a neat product that helped to define how line-drawing management games should feel. Thanks to the larger screen of the iPad, mastering this management game couldn't be easier and there's even a few new features to keep things interesting. For those not familiar with the gameplay, Flight Control throws you in the place of a air-traffic controller with several landing strips to manage. As aircraft enter th…

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Coming April 19th

Sonic returns in a port of the original Sonic 2 which will feature all 11 zones in this nostalgia classic. There is word of no multiplayer and Tails takes a back seat in this version, but there is surely to be some high speed platformer fun!…

Fruit Ninja Coming April 21

Aussie game developers Halfbrick have announced the upcoming release of their first iPhone game Fruit Ninja. Swipe your finger across the screen to deliciously slash and splatter fruit like a true ninja warrior. But be careful of the bombs, which are explosive to the touch and will put a swift end to your juicy adventure! "Violent and visceral combat. It's you versus a watermelon," says Luke Muscat, lead designer. "Who hasn't wanted to attack a melon with a sword just to see it explode? We've captured the awesome feeling of splatty squishiness, and thanks to the hands-on touch controls of the iPhone, you really feel satisfied with the sweet, juicy carnage on the screen!" Fruit Ninjas a…


BABEL Rising Review

Review Bulkypix By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
BABEL Rising Review

I must confess that I felt a bit guilty loading up BABEL Rising by Bulkypix. Perhaps it's just years of religious schooling kicking in, but being a vengeful god feels the slightest bit blasphemous. However, this new take on the defense genre is absorbing enough to keep even these weighty thoughts from interrupting a good time. BABEL plays much like an action oriented version of Pocket God. Super powers are at your disposal and charge up over time to provide more powerful versions. Var…

Warpgate Review

Review Freeverse, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Warpgate Review

Warpgate by Freeverse has already had some time to warm up with its HD release on the iPad earlier this month, but how does it hold up for the iPhone? Following in the footsteps of games like Freelancer, Warpgate is a space trading and combat simulation that's perfectly suited for iDevices. What makes the genre so appealing is its blend of open-world mechanics with quest based objectives to convey an underlying storyline. Being action oriented, combat often represents the most complex…

Stickbound FREE! Review

Review Gamenauts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Stickbound FREE! Review

Stickbound by Gamenauts is a tough nut to crack. Using a completely unique style of horizontal endless gameplay based on pole-vaulting your way across surreal landscapes, it's simultaneously one of the most frustrating, yet positively addictive games to play. All that you require to make your way forward is your wits and well timed taps. By tapping on the screen you extend a pole from your character to the ground, pushing yourself further away. Careful timing can spring you high up or…

Silent Swords Zero Review

Review Oniric Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Silent Swords Zero Review

It's surprising that the stealth-platformer has always seemed to sit on the back bench for a lot of gamers. While twitchy platformers can be fun, Silent Swords ZERO manages to slows things down turning small levels in to big challenges that are rewarding to eventually conquer. Little has changed for ZERO, with the controls being as open as the original. Movement is performed by default with a slide bar to keep your speed in check, but variations are available including rhythm-based ta…
