Review Sillysoft Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 5 months ago
Lux DLX 2 Review

Board games are a booming field for game developers on the iPhone and it's easy to see why, with the ability to essentially "pass the phone" between players you eliminate the fuss and hassle of setting up a game with dozens, if not hundreds of pieces. Lux DLX by Sillysoft Games attempts and succeeds at being a clone of the popular board game Risk while saving you from shifting around the extraordinary amount of tokens and dice required for each game. The game's controls are its only r…

Review Race to the Moon By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 5 months ago
Synth Racing Review

Synth Racing by Race to the Moon is a time-trial racing game that takes all the style and speed from Wipeout, but doesn't quite manage to live up to the game it takes its inspiration from. The aim of the game here is to reach your goal as quickly as possible. To reach the pinnacle of your potential speed you'll need to avoid these obstacles and collect speed-boosts, so you'll be happy to know that the tilt-controls used to slide your ship around the screen are almost flawless in their…

DrawRace - Turbo Edition Review

Review Ubisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 5 months ago
DrawRace - Turbo Edition Review

DrawRace by RedLynx is a fun spin on old school arcade racers like R.C. Pro-Am, Mario Kart and even the seminal Rock'N'Roll Racing. You'll find yourself drawing your way to victory against computer (and human) opponents as you strive for the perfect lap. There's not much to the game with almost all the controls given over to your car's AI. Each race begins by literally drawing the path that your car should take from beginning to end through all the laps required. This can be deceptive…

You have a wall which you can repair and fortify with more health. Little stick figures with weapons keep sieging this wall, and it's your job to dispose of them. Control works very well.

Review Koh Jing Yu By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 5 months ago
Cheese Collect Review

Cheese Collect by Koh Jing Yu is an arcade puzzle game that pits you (the mouse) against your nemesis (the wily cat) as he moves his remote-control cheese around a minefield of traps. Despite the fairly uninspired name, Cheese Collect manages to be a surprisingly fun - if somewhat flawed - App for the iPhone. The interface is kept fairly simple with each turn allowing you to move your mouse in one of eight directions (up/down, left/right and diagonals). The touch controls here are a b…
