continue?9876543210 Review

Sometimes we wonder whether some games are named just to make videogame reviewers sound a bit silly. Continue?9876543210 is an iOS game about a videogame character who is living in digital purgatory, trying to cope the inevitability of his eventual deletion. Remember that cartoon series Reboot where the citizens of the computer town were sucked into videogames? And remember how if anyone was killed in a game, they disappeared to who knows where?

Mini Golf Mundo caters to your 3D mini golf needs

Mini Golf Mundo caters to your 3D mini golf needs

While 2D and 3D mini golf games are nothing new, there's just something about Mini Golf Mundo that caught my attention. Perhaps it's the texture of the holes, reminiscent of a certain Green Hill Zone, perhaps it's the use of bounce pads and teleporters, or perhaps it's the tranquil music alongside the abrupt interruption of the narrator each time you sink a hole. Check out the trailer and perhaps you'll understand what I mean... The game is available now in the App Store for $1.99 (AU). Play on the four courses alone, or with up to three friends. Since it's golf, it's only appropriate we have the links below. [App Store Link]…

Cut the Rope 2 coming exclusively to the App Store on December 19th

Om Nom fans are going to have a very happy Christmas indeed this year. Zeptolab is set to release Cut the Rope 2 as an App Store exclusive on December 19th, reports have confirmed. According to IGN and other sources, the first true sequel to the hugely popular candy-filled franchise will see Om Nom abducted by spiders in a hot air balloon. To save Om Nom, you must take charge of five new characters called Nommies and execute a rescue mission over 120 new levels. These levels will take place over five locations: a junkyard, a forest, an underground settting, a park, and a sandy dam. Each of the Nommies will have specific abilities suited to different challenges. For example, Roto w…

Telltale working on episodic Game of Thrones series for iOS

The Walking Dead developer Telltale Games has revealed that it is creating an episodic Game of Thrones series for console, PC, and mobile. Though rumours of a Game of Thrones game have been floating around the internet for a couple of weeks, it wasn't until this weekend's VGX Awards show that we saw the proof. Here is that proof: As you can see, the trailer is designed to set the mood and tone of the forthcoming series. As this is an official collaboration with HBO, we're treated to the Game of Thrones opening theme tune, complete with promises of a 2014 release date. This announcement comes shortly after the iOS release of The Wolf Among Us, Telltale's comic book-based follow-up to it…


The Wolf Among Us Review

Review Telltale Inc By James Gilmour, 10 months, 2 weeks ago
The Wolf Among Us Review

So, you've created one of the most critically-acclaimed comic book adaptations in the history of videogames. Where do you go from there? Well, in Telltale's case, the answer is straight back into the comic store to find inspiration in another fantastical tale of desperation, death, and moral ambiguity. The Wolf Among Us puts you in the gumshoes of Bigby Wolf, the cigarette smoking, ill-shaven sheriff of Fabletown. While he looks and speaks like a classic film noir protagonist - a gruf…

Turn your world upside down with the Monument Valley teaser trailer

Turn your world upside down with the Monument Valley teaser trailer

Indie developer ustwo has just released the first teaser trailer for its architectural puzzle game Monument Valley - and it's a doozy. Up until today, we've only seen screenshots of the arty puzzler. Even in still images, however, the game looked fantastic, and we've been harbouring hope that those impossible environments and rotating platforms would look just as good in motion. Now that we've seen the newly released Monument Valley teaser (below), we can safely say our worries have been put to rest.  Clearly inspired by the geometry-defying drawings of Escher, Monument Valley puts you in charge of a small white figure traversing constantly evolving structures. The sneak-peek…


Sirtet deconstructs Tetris

Sirtet deconstructs Tetris

Or at least that's the plan. While this game may not be much to look at, the idea of reforming blocks of colour to create tetrominoes is enticing. The ability to place new lines anywhere you wish is interesting, and the ability to add more colours to complicate matters just seals the deal. Take a look at the trailer to see what I mean... There are fears that it looks a little too easy, but one imagines that's what the colours are for, and if it's anything like Tetris, it will get faster. The app is available today for $2.99 on the US store, and should make its way wordwide in the coming week.…


Top 7 Platformers on iPhone and iPad

Top 7 Platformers on iPhone and iPad

One of the very first games I fell in love with as a youngster was Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo Entertainment System. Ever since then I've had a soft spot for platformers. The App Store has tons of great games that require you leap from one ledge to another, occasionally crushing enemies beneath your feet. However, to save you sifting though the whole lot,  I've gone ahead and whittled them down to the seven crucial ones you absolutely must play. Oh, and as I note in the video, you'll find none of that auto-runner stuff in this list. I love a bit of Temple Run, but this video is dedicated to traditional-style platformers: with levels and goals and endings.…

Exploding presents let you start Christmas with a bang in Clash of Clans update

Developer Supercell has decided to bring some pre-Christmas cheer to Clash of Clans via its newly released winter update. Download the update, and you'll find fortresses steeped in snow, twinkly lights aplenty, and the sound of sleigh bells jingling in the distance. All of which should put in you in the perfect frame of mind to march into your neighbour's village and smash up their town hall. You know - just like Santa would do. Speaking of Saint Nick, you can now enlist his holly-jolly help during scuffles. Simply say the word, and Santa will rain down explosive presents on your unsuspecting enemies.  Along with the Christmas themed additions-the update also includes a few interf…


A videogame... in the fourth dimension! Dun dun dun!

A videogame... in the fourth dimension! Dun dun dun!

Tesseract: a fourth dimension game is a puzzle game where you need to lead a sphere through a constantly shifting hypercube. It sounds bizarre, and the video does little to really explain it to me (but mind you, I constantly failed physcis in high school). Perhaps you will fare better. I always assumed the fourth dimension was time. I guess it's shapes shifting dimensions (or whatever is going on here). To be honest, this looks like it will only appeal to a very specific type of puzzle fan, but to those players, I say that the game is available now for $1.99. [App Store Link]…

Burn the Rope 3D Review

It's time for the one sentence review: Burn the Rope 3D is Burn the Rope in the third dimension. You're all most likely familiar with the gameplay of either Burn the Rope. You are presented with an image composed of rope, often of varying colour. Touching any spot on the rope and it will start burning. The flame will only stay alight if it travelling either horizontally or vertically, with vertical lengths burning much faster. The goal is to burn as much of the rope as possible.…

Letris 3: Word puzzle game Review

App Store success stories can often come from the place you least expect. The Letris series is one such success, and it's a game franchise we haven't really had our eye on. The premise is simple: it's Tetris with letters - essentially a more single-minded version of Puzzlejuice. You create words through tapping letters, and try not to let your stack reach the top of the screen. Letris 3 is the latest in a series so popular that's it's apparently spawned its own game show, so we though…

Essentially a collectible card game without the cards, Heroes of Dragon Age invites players to recreate battles from the Dragon Age mythology.

As with most CCG-style games, the battles themselves play out automatically. You job is to ensure you have cherry-picked the best fighters for each bout based on their skills, stats, and loyalties. If you need a little help f…
