Rayman must collect the thousand Lums and reunite four magical masks to awaken the world spirit to get rid of the pirates. Co…

Ragdoll Blaster 2 Review

Review Backflip Studios By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 9 months ago
Ragdoll Blaster 2 Review

Ragdoll Blaster was a really fun game by Backflip Studios. Trying to shoot ragdolls out of cannons into a target in as few shots as possible made for some clever level design and addictive gameplay. Well, the sequel is upon us, and the goal is the same. The question is have they expanded upon the idea enough to warrant an entirely new game? Control is just like the first. Touch the screen to shoot the cannon. The power of the shot is determined by how close or far away from the cannon…

Compression Review

Compression Review

Have you ever played a game of Dr. Mario and felt like the walls are closing in? That must have been the consensus over at Little White Bear studios when they made Compression. Blocks of certain colours drop, and you need to line up three in a row to destroy all the hollow blocks in the level. Every three block drops however one of the walls will close in, giving you less room to work with. Control is very basic. Drag the blocks to move them across the screen, and tap to flip them. As…

How many times have you played a rhythm game and thought to yourself, "Man, I wish I was able to play my favourite songs"? Boom Shake by apalms has come to the rescue.

Space Box Review

Review Tom Graczyk By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 9 months ago
Space Box Review

What images are conjured up when you hear the name Space box? If you thought of a cardboard box with eyes jumping from platform to platform in the cold depths of space, you are correct. The goal of the game is to get the box to the final platform of each level, preferably in the least moves possible. If there are numbers left on the move counter when you finish the level, you gain extra lives. To move the box, tap it, and drag your finger to set the direction and force of the box's ju…

Star Wars The Force Unleashed Review

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (TFU) is THQ's port of the Triple-A title of the same name for major consoles from 2008.

Each level of the story campaign will have you scrambling to execute gesture controls to eliminate your enemies. At the time, TFU's console version made a big splash for its complex physics and AI models, so a lot of ti…
