Trism Review

Trism Review

Trism is a tile matching game that’s flips the usual puzzle game mechanics around - literally. Players must slide the different rows and columns to make a match of three or more gems. Once this is done, the remaining tiles from that column will slide into the empty gap. The tiles slide depending on the way players hold their iPhone as the game is gravity controlled. Players use their finger to slide each row around to try and match up tiles. You'll need to watch the small dial o…

TriDefense Review

TriDefense Review

Tower and castle defense is a genre that continues to explode on the iPhone thanks to its intuitive touch interface, so there's little room for any new games that bring nothing exciting or new to the genre. TriDefense by Kalio fails to be an outstanding product amongst others available on iTunes, but does bring a mechanic that may tip fans of the genre over. TriDefense has learned well from its predecessors and has implemented a fairly fool-proof system of dropping, finalising and upg…

20Q™ Mind Reader Review

Kalahari Sun Slots Review

Kalahari Sun Slots Review

Kalahari Sun is a slot machine app available for the iphone and ipod touch. Starting with only $500 you must test your luck to better your bankroll. The controls for this game are fiddly and it is difficult to pinpoint certain options in the menu. The increase and decrease bet buttons are quite small and if you gamble your winnings at the roulette table then accurately placing a bet becomes difficult if not impossible. Where this game fails in functionality it makes up for in the vis…
