Nun Attack Review

Review Frima By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 4 months ago
Nun Attack Review

Nuns with Guns. This statement depending on who you are can sound foolish, hilarious, or awesome. It's our opinion that Frima studio was counting on that last option as Nun Attack is a strategy action title that pits a cadre of devout gun-toting Catholics against the forces of the undead in order to stop the terrible reign of their fallen sister... and really it's more action than strategy. Each level consists of two portions. The first is dragging the sisters along a predetermined pa…

infinite Review

Review Nexus Game Studio By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 4 months ago
infinite Review

When you call your game Infinite, you create certain expectations in the player's mind. Seeing that this game is a consistent travel through the colored vastness of space to collect enough energy to birth stars, while dodging abstract obstacles and oppressive black holes, the name is apt. One touch control is the name of the game here. Your... whatever you are will orbit the planet, and touching the screen will extend that orbit outwards, allowing collection of energy that is further…

Stan is Parashooting into the App Store Mid December

Parashoot Stan is a new breed of endless runner spear-headed by Chris Seavor (ex-RARE employee, probably best known for being the project lead on Conker's Bad Fur Day on the N64). This is the first release by his studio, Gory Detail, but they are working on other projects as well. Here's the trailer for Parashoot Stan. The game will be released at the $0.99 mark, and will have in-app purchases available to fast track the player. We'll let you all know when the game is released sometime next month.…


Heroes of Order & Chaos delayed for Android

Heroes of Order & Chaos delayed for Android

We weren't that enamoured with Gameloft's MOBA Heroes of Order & Chaos. It had some nice ideas, but they got a bit lost under connectivity issues, which just isn't good enough for an online only game. However, Android gamers haven't even had a chance to find out about the stability issues, because despite Gameloft promising a simultaneous release, the game is still conspicuous in its absence from the Google Play Store. This is because Gameloft is tinkering with some server issues they've discovered with the Android version. So hopefully Android players should have a far more stable experience when it does release than iOS players have been suffering. So if you're waiting with baited b…

App Wrap Up (Weekend Edition, 26th November, 2011)

Hey hey folks. It's Monday and summer is really started to hit hard over here. How can I tell? The hayfever has begun! As i try to ignore my dripping nose and itchy eyes, here are some games from the App Store that may have fallen under the radar. Based on their trailers, we're gonna take a look at them, and if you like what you see, well you can always click the app store link and give the game a go! Let's begin. Real Boxing (Vivid Games S.A.) Maybe it's memories of Mike Tyson's Punch Out, but I have a soft spot for boxing games. Now this one looks fun enough, but in the end, that all comes down to the controls. If they're well executed, players will definitely be in a pugilist para…

Take Minecraft into the real world

Take Minecraft into the real world

If you've ever slaved over an impressive creation in Minecraft, then you know how satisfying it is to stand back and marvel at your work. Well, imagine if everyone else in the world could do that as well. Thanks to Minecraft Reality, that's now a very real possible. The iOS app lets you upload your creations to the real world, leaving them there for others to find using their iPhone or iPad cameras. It's a clever application of AR technology, and as you can see in the video below, it lets you change the world in some pretty cool, innovative ways. Minecraft Reality is available from the App Store right now for $1.99, and if you still need to be swayed, check out the video of the app in act…


Heroes of Order & Chaos - Multiplayer Online Game Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 4 months ago
Heroes of Order & Chaos - Multiplayer Online Game Review

For those that enjoy MOBAs (Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas), the idea of being able to play a portable version of a game they may have loved for years is something equally beautiful and terrible to think about. On one hand the sheer complexity inherent in a genre with such a diverse amount of heroes and items (and the combinations there of) can be mind-boggling; a truly difficult thing to replicate on a touch-based mobile gaming device. On the other hand, Action-RPGs have proven the…

Angry Birds Star Wars Review

Angry Birds Star Wars Review

I rarely say this, but every now and then a developer actually 'gets it'. 'Gets what' you say? They get tie-in products, which is all the more strange for Angry Birds Star Wars not only being a mash-up of two very popular franchises, but the game isn't even new - it's an add on. Yet still, here I sit playing the game, gaze firmly fixed on my targets as I attempt to solve yet another tricky puzzle.Over the years this sort of puzzle design is what Angry Birds has come to specialize in an…

Beatdown! Review

Review Ravenous Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 4 months ago
Beatdown! Review

As a studio Ravenous Games seems to hold to the 'less is more' philosophy when it comes to their games. At times this can work against a title, but in the case of the white-knuckle brawler Beatdown! the stripped-back style keeps the action flowing and before you know it you've finished the bite-sized game with a sigh of relief. Taking its cues from games of old such as River City Ransom, Double Dragon, and yes the ever-loved Streets of Rage, your task is one of dishing out pain wrappe…

Galaxy On Fire 2 free on the App Store

It's fair to say that none of us are ever going to feel the real thrill of a dogfight in space, cursed as we are to be born in a time where spaceships spend most of their time on the ground and are rarely equipped with lasers. Luckily, right now the really rather brilliant Galaxy on Fire 2 is available from the App Store for free, meaning we can live out our space fighting dreams without the danger of being sucked out in an endless vacuum. We awarded the game 5/5 when we reviewed it, and updates since then have only added to our admiration of the space faring saga. It's full of action, intrigue, and there's enough content to keep you playing for hours. It's only the standard version of…


Sleepwalker's Journey Review

Review 11 bit studios s.a. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 4 months ago
Sleepwalker's Journey Review

Puzzle platformers can be tricky beasts - so many fall in to the trap of designing stages that progress in challenge too slowly or worse still, spike in difficulty, causing you to throw down your iDevice in frustration. Sleepwalker's Journey by 11 bit studios ramps up its challenge quite quickly, but it's such a smooth ride up that you'll be flicking, swiping and tapping furiously before you know it. Poor Moonboy has a bit of a problem - he's at risk of being woken up, and you have no…

App Wrap Up (Thursday Edition, 22nd November 2012)

Hey hey all. Seeing that it's Thanksgiving over in the US, the majority of the news surrounding this week has been Black Friday sales. Seeing as your site already has that handy section informing our viewers when games go on sale, we'll just have to give you another App Wrap Up to tide you over. As always, we'll be looking at some games that may have fallen under the radar, and will be making quick evaluations based on their trailers. Enjoy! Starbloom (Shadegrown Games) This is kind of reminiscent of Catch-22 in its presentation, only this game allows you to move off the beaten path, and as you play, more orbits are created. Looks relaxing and enjoyable.[App Store Link] Directional…


Hungry Shark Evolution Review

Review Future Games of London By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Hungry Shark Evolution Review

There have been plenty of games through the years that have let us swim around under the sea as Dolphins, but very few that let us gain control of the master predator himself, Mr Shark (cause you damn well better approach these merciless killing machines with respect). Hungry Shark Evolution changes all that by presenting us with a game based on a stunning contrast. The serene beauty of swimming around the calm blue ocean, punctuated by a feeding frenzy of tropical fish, turtles, and m…
