James Cameron's Avatar Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 11 months ago
James Cameron's Avatar Review

It's not surprising that a developer like Gameloft were brought in to bring to life James Cameron's Avatar for the iPhone. For a film that's already critically acclaimed, it was really only a matter of time for game tie-ins to appear. Gameloft takes care to approach this as something worth playing first and it shows in every aspect of the game itself. Avatar is an action platformer that practically smashes others in the genre. You take control through the use of virtual analogue stick…

Players control their gorilla by sliding their finger across the screen to control direction, and jump by tapping the screen. You’ll need to use b…

FEATURE ARTICLE: Augmented Reality...a Reality?

What if you were to stand in mid-town Manhattan, hold up your iPhone and walk through a reconstruction of the original Penn Station, as it was in the year 1910, or walk through the streets of London, admiring the pre-blitz buildings. Or how about playing the role of Pac Man as you are chased by Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde through the labyrinth of back alleyways in Central Melbourne. Hungry? With every restaurant you turn to, you see an impressive listing of menus, opening hours and seating availability appear before your eyes. This is not too far off, in fact, it's practically here, and on the iPhone. Dutch Developer 'Layar' has introduced one of the first (of which will indeed be many) Ap…

Would you dare to accept the challenge to end the explosively short lives of furballs in the never ending quest to use their eyes for magical elixirs?

Rise Of Lost Empires Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 11 months ago
Rise Of Lost Empires Review

Rise Of Lost Empires by Gameloft is an amazingly fun fantasy inspired real time strategy game that features 20 campaigns with a fairly interesting - if not entirely inspired - story to drag you along that's supported by a brilliant adaption of the normal strategy controls for the iPhone. One of the great features includes the way in which normal soldiers are automatically "grouped" with your heroes when they're selected together with a two-finger box selection. This makes movement and…

Red Conquest! (Episodes 1 & 2!) Review

Review Cat in a Box Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 11 months ago
Red Conquest! (Episodes 1 & 2!) Review

Cat in a Box Games is the other name for iPhone game creator John Kooistra and Red Conquest! is the latest installment in a series of games involving the continuing war of Red and Blue. Where previous installments covered arcade shooters from different angles, Red Conquest is a pure real time strategy (RTS) and a treat to play. There's a fairly steep learning curve for most casual players in most RTSs and the somewhat complex set of controls for Red Conquest keep that curve relatively…

Review Gameloft By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 11 months ago
Derek Jeter Real Baseball Review

If you’re thinking Derek Jeter Real Baseball is the newest baseball game to hit the iTunes stores, then you are wrong. According to Gameloft, it is a baseball simulation and must be addressed as such. Nevertheless, in this ‘simulation’ you’ll take to the field along side baseball legend Derek Jeter in America’s favourite past-time. There are two control schemes that players will use; one for pitching and one for batting. Pitching requires you to choose a…
