Wolfenstein RPG Review

Review Electronic Arts By Damian Chiappara, 5 years, 2 months ago
Wolfenstein RPG Review

Wolfenstein RPG is a title that seems pretty self explanatory. The game is based on the well known first person shooter series Wolfenstein but employs the use of RPG elements, such as turn based combat and earning experience points. And before you cringe at the sound of the mix of genres, they actually work quite well together. The majority of the game functions the same as a regular FPS game, moving using the D-pad and collecting items by tapping on the screen. But the combat is turn…

Need For Speed™ Undercover Review

Review Electronic Arts By Damian Chiappara, 5 years, 2 months ago
Need For Speed™ Undercover Review

Need For Speed has earned a reputation as one of those franchises that will either having players squealing in delight at the high octane gameplay or cringing at the thought of another repetitive sequel. But with this iPhone port of the 2008 console release, Need For Speed Undercover hopes to offer the same fast paced thrills and hopefully draw in both fans and sceptics. The gameplay is true to the original with the exception of modified controls for the iPhone. Players will accelerat…

Players can play against the computer or against a local player in an attempt to prove who the better bowling or shuffleboard player is. You bowl using your finger to line up your puck, and then flick then screen to make the shot. However, the controls are very hard to master. More often than not, your shot will either veer off target or miss completely because of the sensitivity of the controls. The only…

Sonic the Hedgehog Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 2 months ago
Sonic the Hedgehog Review

Just about every mobile device has had an incarnation of this popular classic console game and there's no reason that SEGA shouldn't have brought it to the iPhone too. Iconic in its design and gameplay, the iPhone version of Sonic the Hedgehog 1 plays just as flawlessly as the Mega Drive version it's taken from. A digital d-pad is used to run, spin and jump Sonic around each of the levels and the response has to be played to be believed. A major flaw for almost every mobile port has b…

SCRABBLE Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 2 months ago
SCRABBLE Review

Scrabble is an iconic board game that has been around 1938, popularised in the 50's and is almost globally known in its gameplay. Simplicity reigns supreme in EA's release of Scrabble on the iPhone and you couldn't expect anything less from such a simple, yet challenging game. The letter tiles all use a simple drag and drop system for placement with the rest of the interface being responsive to simple touches. The iPhone has also been well considered by the use of a "Recall" button to…

Mind Games 2 Review

Review Player X By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 2 months ago
Mind Games 2 Review

The brain training genre of games have often felt like a hodge-podge collection of mini games that combine puzzles and arcade elements, scoring you for the sake of progress. In other words, they were less about training and more about the challenge. Mind Games 2 may be a fairly simple offering compared to other brain training games, but this one feels like the real deal; your brain will feel the burn. Most games use a simple touch to select answers from the plethora of game modes, tho…

Mega Hearts 2 Slots Review

Review 616 Digital LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 2 months ago
Mega Hearts 2 Slots Review

Mega Hearts 2 Slots by Pokie Magic may be a bit cutesy as a slot machine goes, but it's fun, visually bright and clear and features a surprisingly generous set of special features. Control is fairly limited, using simple buttons to control the entire game. It's possible to even allow the game to play independent of the player by using the "autoplay" feature, though that prevents players from accessing the gamble or roulette options available in Pokie Magic games. Roulette is controlle…

Air Master 3D Review

Review Alex Nankervis By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 2 months ago
Air Master 3D Review

Flight sims on the iPhone have been a somewhat risky proposition because they live or die by their ability to control an aircraft fluidly while still being able to let a gamer see what's happening. Air Master 3D by Alex Nankervis doesn't manage to make the cut as a flight sim shoot-em-up for this reason even if there is a nugget of gold hidden within. Players will find themselves tilting their craft around their island zone, though despite some thorough customisation options for these…
