SCRABBLE Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 3 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, 3 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, 3 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, 3 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…

Uggles - Collect them ALL Review

Review frogameleon Ltd By Luke Bartley, 5 years, 3 months ago
Uggles - Collect them ALL Review

Uggles is a simple little game for the iPhone. The goal is to juggle your uggles and prevent them hitting the ground. The longer you keep your little friends airborne, the higher your score, but beware! Just one dropped Uggle will result in game over. There really is not much to this game, and it feels like it is targeted at a younger audience. The visuals are simple, yet colourful and cartoonish enough to hold attention for awhile. Your creatures long arms are quite comical and the u…
