Aztec Quest Review

Review Clickgamer.com By Kelly Mitchell, 4 years, 11 months ago
Aztec Quest Review

Aztec Quest is a 3D puzzle game that not only tests player's problem solving abilities in new and exciting ways but also pushes the barriers of creativeness to its limits by featuring a neat full level editor which allows players to customise and share their own maps online so other players can download and try them out. The aim of the game is for players to construct a pathway using a given set of gadgets that will allow the ball to drop and roll from the totem pole to the diamond wi…

Zen Bound™ Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 11 months ago
Zen Bound™ Review

While the idea of rope bondage may invoke either images of tying down furniture in the back of a trailer; luggage on a roof; a boat to a moor; or even something more bedroom orientated, Zen Bound attempts to be a game that's more of an experience than something competitive. Contemplation and calm calculation are unsurprisingly key requirements to grasping and enjoying this beautiful app. Multiple gestures are combined with the accelerometer in order to twist and tie up a series of obj…

Sway Review

Review Illusion Labs By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 11 months ago
Sway Review

It has to be said, but the main character in Sway by Illusion Labs looks like something directly out of a nightmare. However, this smiling reptilian will lazily swing her way through each level of this physics sim in an attempt to rescue her friends. As you'd imagine, swinging is the main mechanic here and the controls are quite simple in their design. The left and right halves of the screen control the left and right arms of your chosen character (of which there are up to 10 to unloc…

N.O.V.A. - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 11 months ago
N.O.V.A. - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Review

Halo as a franchise was the start of a console revolution for the first person shooter. It combined well designed controls with a highly anticipated adventure story and amazing multiplayer paving the way for future FPSs. NOVA (Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance) may not be as epochal, but it has refined the genre for the iPhone in a way that can't be ignored. Veterans of FPSs will quickly adapt to the controls that are purpose built and well considered for touch screens. Of the three contro…

Zombies! Zombies Everywhere!

News By Callum Webster, 4 years, 11 months ago
Zombies! Zombies Everywhere!

In the mood for a little violence? Or hungry for some brains? Either way the App Store has everything to please those with an urge to fend against those relentless flesh eating machines known as Zombies! There was a time when we thought Zombies had reached the height of their popularity, to be replaced by (sigh) 'Sparkling' Vampires. But no, those living dead fought off the pending wave of Emo Night Walkers with a barrage of great shoot 'em ups! There's no sonnets or deep and meaningful romantic moments for those hungry for flesh. The game plots are always the same, and the characters have been pulled from every conceivable stereotype, but who cares, they are killing Zombies! Try out a litt…


Galaxy Control Review

Review TopLineSoft Systems By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 11 months ago
Galaxy Control Review

Flight Control had you landing planes safely, DrawRace had you competing for first place and now Galaxy Control by TopLineSoft Systems follows the line-drawing arcade style to slowly drift spacecraft to their home planets. Drawing lines from each spacecraft to their home planet is no easy task as you attempt to avoid other planets, other crafts and the occasional drifting asteroid. This is further complicated by the fact that multiple spacecrafts will appear at the same time leading t…

FEATURE ARTICLE: Just Another Phase of Marketing? Movie-Game Adaptations

Feature By Callum Webster, 4 years, 11 months ago
FEATURE ARTICLE: Just Another Phase of Marketing? Movie-Game Adaptations

In the age of television, online entertainment, computer games and torrent downloads, movie studios have to compete even harder for a piece of the market share. With production costs and actors wages increasing, and a high demand for epic digital effects, a simple movie release along with a Happy Meal promotion is no enough to get, using the industry term 'butts on seats'. Studios have to exploit virtually every marketing avenue available, and the iPhone is now a part of the equation.  The initial cinematic release of a film usually equates to less than half of a blockbusters success, the opening weekend determines the rate of return on investment, and in previous decades, huge profits…

Hip Hop All Star Review

Review iwin, Inc. By Kelly Mitchell, 4 years, 11 months ago
Hip Hop All Star Review

Slap down the beat, turn up the music and scratch your way to DJ-Stardom with Hip Hop All Star. Starting off as an amateur DJ, the player must scratch and cut their way through each level battling other rival DJs on the way to fulfil their hopes of becoming the next DJ superstar. The controls are very suitable for this style of game. Players must tap their finger on the correct notes as the record spins and hold their finger down on the screen for long notes. Although this sounds like…

DaVinci's Secret Machines Review

Review Aboveground Systems LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 11 months ago
DaVinci's Secret Machines Review

Davinci's Secret Machines by Aboveground Systems is another take on the physics sim puzzle set of games already in abundance on the App Store. It's a fairly simple offering for the genre, but one that still challenges players to think laterally to solve the myriad of puzzles on offer. Puzzles in physics simulators tend to be challenging thanks to the way complex machines end up becoming chaotic and prone to wild results from tiny changes. Davinci's Secrets is no big improvement here a…

Super Shock Football Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 11 months ago
Super Shock Football Review

Super Shock Football is a throwback to the old electric football machines that had tiny players moving around a vibrating football field. Players must strategize and use different plays, set up team positions and hope that they manage to get a touchdown as all player movement is randomised to mimic the old vibrating game machines. Players are limited in regards to the amount of control they have over their team but as mentioned, plays and tactics can be selected and team members can b…
