Finger Dancer Review

Review Vitaly Pronkin By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Finger Dancer Review

There aren't too many games that really make use of the multi-touch features available on the iPhone, but Finger Dancer by mifki makes multi-touch almost the only gameplay mechanic. Much about this game relies on simplicity, from its graphics to the available features, but they all serve a deceptively addictive competitive game. Finger Dancer relies on the player using two different kinds of touches, either a direct tap or an extended hold. The challenge comes in managing to perform t…

Real Tennis Review

Review Gameloft By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 9 months ago
Real Tennis Review

Real Tennis 2009 is, as you’d guess from the title, a tennis game from developer Gameloft. However this is one of their more original titles as there is no one specific game they have cloned but more of the genre as a whole. Players jump onto the court and play a number of different modes in friendly competition. Movement is controlled by using the onscreen d-pad and you hit the ball by using the swing button. Players serve the ball by tilting the iPhone to the area you want to…

Ski Champ Review

Review Eric Farraro By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Ski Champ Review

Freestyle skiing, slalom and abominable snow monsters. These evoke powerful memories for some from a game that was either impossible or so much fun that you were able to restart the entire mountain as it wrapped around at the end. Ski Champ is an updated SkiFree for the App Store by Lazy Peon Games and gives the game a genuinely well earned retouching. Cruising down the mountain slopes at high speeds is a snap as players control their skier by sliding their finger across the bottom of…

Defender Chronicles - Legend of The Desert King Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 9 months ago
Defender Chronicles - Legend of The Desert King Review

Just when you thought all Tower Defence games were the same, along comes Defender Chronicles to smack you upside the head with a dead goblin. Yes, the core gameplay is the same but certain changes have been made to break the repetitive nature of most TD games. Instead of placing towers ‘willy nilly’ on the map, players must co-ordinate towers along the specific build zones to make the most effective army possible. The upgrade and placement system is very straightforward as…

Review 616 Digital LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Gallop for Gold Slots Review

Gallop for Gold Slots by Pokie Magic is probably one of the best slot machine games the company has brought out for the iPhone, and while that may not be saying much, it's can be a genuinely fun game to enjoy. What makes this game stand out is the new and amazingly fun Horse Racing feature.

Bix Review

Review Padadaz By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Bix Review

Bix by Padadaz is a great new arcade game that fuses the classic gameplay from Taito's Qix with more modern gameplay adaptions from Jezzball and KBounce. For those who don't know these iconic games, Bix is an arcade game that has you racing to claim screen's space without being hit by balls bouncing around the increasingly smaller play area. Your "tracer" is controlled by simple directional swipes to indicate which direction it should draw a line and subsequently create a box. Lives a…

Review Luke Campbell By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 9 months ago

Twilight Golf Review

Review Andrew Korth By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 10 months ago
Twilight Golf Review

Sometimes a developer can get so caught up in showing off new and exciting features that they forget to make a game out of it that's genuinely interesting and not just a demo of "cool stuff". Howling Moon Software almost trips over that line in Twilight Golf, however it's a serene experience to enjoy from start to finish. Twilight Golf is, as the name suggests, a golf-like game where stroke angle and power are determined by dragging away from the ball and at an angle. This is easy to…

Tilteroids Review

Review JackCraft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 10 months ago
Tilteroids Review

You'd be forgiven for thinking that Tilteroids by JackCraft isn't the most original name for a game that involves TILTing the iPhone to shoot asteROIDS, but when a game does both of these things so well it's hard to call it anything else. As you'd expect tilting performs the main duty of controlling your craft around the screen maneuvering your ship and at the same time aiming your weapon. Tilting to the sides smoothly rotates your shots left and right while moving side-to-side; tilti…
