De Blob Revolution Review

Review THQ Inc. By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
De Blob Revolution Review

That colourful blob freeing his people from the mediocrity of grayscale is back on the iphone, but this time round, it's a puzzle game. There are buildings where the graydians are trapped by INKT agents, and Blob has to make his way to the exit on each level while rescuing as many of them as possible. You can either tap or drag to lay down Blob's path. The puzzle element enters in that Blob cannot cross his own painted path once it's been layed down, so you have to work out the optima…

Funkyball Worlds Review

Review Handmark, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Funkyball Worlds Review

Sometimes it's frustrating to find that a new App that strives to be more than just a simple mechanic palmed off as the entire game itself. Funkyball Worlds by Handmark is a stand-out from the most other physics-based platformers thanks to its charming elegance that makes it easy to pick up and play, but hard to put down. The trick to Funkyball is all in the friction. Levels consist of a series of platforms that need to be navigated while avoiding traps as you charge your way to the g…

Mission: Deep Sea Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Mission: Deep Sea Review

Thanks to some advanced technology in the world of Mission: Deep Sea by Chillingo, players are invited to take virtual control of sea turtles to help save humanity and the environment. Of course this is just a game, but beyond the overt environmentalism there's not as much depth to what's on offer here. One of the major features of Deep Sea is the gesture controls used to manipulate your sea turtle. Swipes replicate the movement of the front flippers and act like paddles to turn aroun…

STREET FIGHTER IV Review

If you're going to make a fighting game for the iphone, you best be sure you get the controls right, especially if multiplayer is involved.

This reviewer had trouble pulling off special moves when needed, but has always had that…

Isotope: A Space Shooter Review

Sometimes it's better to be late to the party than to never arrive and Isotope is the kind of twin-stick shooter that you wish you'd discovered earlier.

2012 Zombies vs Aliens Review

Zombie plagues created by alien technology is nothing new for sci-fi stories and with a market quickly reaching saturation point for zombie-related products it's a risky theme to pull off. 2012 Zombies vs Aliens (ZvA) by Infinidy Corp pits these monstrous foes against each other in trench-based warfare over the fate of the world.

WireWay Review

WireWay Review

Parachute Ninja delighted fans with its flicking off springs gameplay, but before the adventures of that stealthy ball, there was Wire Way. You play as Wiley, a cute little creature who is springing through levels to collect stars full of the precious energy Elan. When Wiley is attached to a spring, pulling back will prime him for take off. A guide will show your arc and an indicator of your distance, but it's not foolproof. The goal is to reach the UFO at the end of each level, but t…
