Timeloop Review

Review Connect2Media By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 4 months ago
Timeloop Review

Puzzle games have always tried to remain entertaining by introducing game mechanics that are simple to grasp, but eventually complex to execute. This keeps a game tantalisingly fun to play, while scratching your brain in all the right places. TimeLoop challenges players to think fourth-dimensionally as you use copies of yourself to rescue the professor from each puzzling room. Each room is navigated by your hapless robot called Nik by touching where he needs to go. This would sound ea…

In this port of the most recent game in the series, we see how this style of gameplay transfers to the iPhone. You start the game by choosing a world leader and beginning your civilization around 3000 BC. As you build your armies, cities, and…

Duke Nukem 3D Review

Review MachineWorks Northwest By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 4 months ago
Duke Nukem 3D Review

Duke Nukem 3D, arguably one of the finest first person shooters ever made. Now a port of the game comes to the iPhone with a unique control scheme to compensate for the lack of a mouse and keyboard. The question though is does it deliver the experience we all remember and love. The game offers two control schemes and both have their problems. The analog setup features two control sticks down the bottom of the screen (one to move, one to shoot), while the digital setup breaks the stick…
