Dark Avenger Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
Dark Avenger Review

In the last few years, the ARPG has exploded in popularity. For most of the 2000s, gamers were either playing Diablo II or one of the few games made to emulate it. This explosion in popularity even has the progenitor Diablo finding itself ill equipped to make a huge splash in the new market. It's of no surprise then that plenty of developers have tried to bring this style of game to IOS. These entires have met with various levels of success, and now Gamevil is throwing their hat into t…

Battle Line™ Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Battle Line™ Review

Sometimes I wonder if the releases coming from Gamevil suffer a soft of cultural disconnect that I just don't understand as a reviewer. Many of their releases revolve around grind-heavy mechanics with little behind the actual gameplay, while the almighty In-App Purchase paywall locks away everything you need to help you progress smoothly through the game. And despite this, these games are quite popular with a vocal fanbase; from Zenonia to Baseball Stars, and now to Battle Line. This…

ZENONIA® 5 Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 6 months ago
ZENONIA® 5 Review

If nothing else, it has been an interesting experience reviewing Zenonia 5. The last game in the series played by this reviewer was the first, and it's interesting to see what's changed and what has stayed the same. In this latest installment there has been a war brewing between the rich and the poor, so much so that it has attracted the attention of demons. You start off as an apprentice in a small town that has dreamed of this conflict, and embark on a journey to try and put things r…

Toy Shot™ Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Toy Shot™ Review

Sometimes all you need for a good game idea is to take an existing game type and add something new to it. Toy Shot takes the flinging physics fun found in such games as Angry Birds and Crush the Castle, wraps it up it up in LEGO blocks and gives you the most unique aiming system we've seen in one of these games yet. Does it make it stand out from the pack however? The aiming system is a bulls-eye, and when you drag your finger out from it, you create a circle with a line. This stays p…

ZENONIA® 4 Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
ZENONIA® 4 Review

For those who have followed the Zenonia series from GAMEVIL, the best that could be said of each one is that they have learned from their previous iterations, tweaking and adding tiny features to remain competitive in the KRPG scene. Zenonia 4 represents a shift from this trend as it feels more like a broad summary of the previous titles while taking the game in a new direction by handing out the game for free. With this price-point comes some obvious changes, the largest being the sc…

ADVENA Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
ADVENA Review

It has been a while since I've said anything like this, but if you missed out on the days of going to the local arcade and throwing a few coins down on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with a few friends, then you missed out on something really special. Beat'em-ups are usually cathartic in their own right, but the addition of three other players turns it in to an almost unfair brawl where you begrudgingly assist each other, if only to beat the boss and play the next level. ADVENA by Gamev…

NOM 5 Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
NOM 5 Review

Nom wants to find himself a girlfriend. To do so, he's on a quest to meet the Spaceking and acquire the truth of life along the way. At least that's what we think is going on. The story itself reads like it was written through an online translator and doesn't have much to do with the gameplay. Funnily enough this could a point in the favor of Nom's odd charm. When the first level loads up, you get the feeling this is going to be another endless runner with a multi-purpose tap control…

Skipping Stone Review

Skipping Stone Review

Despite already having a few titles dedicated to the 'Skipping Stone' series, it seems that iOS gamers are only now being introduced to this classic game from GAMEVIL's archives. Given its Java past it's no surprise to see this endless arcade title keeping things simple, but trying to keep an anthropomorphic stone in the air isn't an easy task. Originally, players had to traverse around the world, encountering various creatures in an attempt to find the stone's lost love. While the st…

ZENONIA® 3 Review

ZENONIA® 3 Review

It's clear that GAMEVIL are at their most relaxed when creating KRPGs and the anticipated release of Zenonia 3 goes to show just how much of an impact the earlier releases had on gamers after something with a bit more meat than the average App Store fare. This time around players are placed in the middle of a war between the tribes of heaven and hell, giving you ample opportunity to kick some rather obscure monster-butt. In this, the third installment of the series, several minor twea…

Air Penguin Review

Imagine you're a penguin collecting food for your friend's and family when, 'WHAMO!', a wild Global Warming appears and uses Sunny Day to melt your home in to tiny chunks of ice. Annoying as that may be, everyone you know is now stranded on the quickly forming islands of ice and it's up to you in Air Penguin by GAMEVIL to rescue them. The ultimate aim of each chapter may be to rescue an individual penguin, however on each stage your goal is simply to survive your trip to each flag. Yo…

KAMI RETRO Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
KAMI RETRO Review

I have to hand it to Gamevil - despite the roaring success of their collection of RPG-based titles, the company is still willing to branch out and try something way outside their comfort zone. KAMI RETRO jumps on the puzzle platform conga line by adding a slight Lemmings twist to the usual formula, however while the gameplay has its charms it's the presentation that will prove to be the make or break decision for most people. KAMI RETRO keeps things simple with a single-touch control…

ILLUSIA Review

ILLUSIA Review

By now the Korean mobile game developer GAMEVIL has earned an almost permanent free-pass for its new RPGs, having already shown just how well they can pull them off with heavy hitters like HYBRID, ZENONIA and even their sports-based titles like Soccer and Baseball Superstars. ILLUSIA represents another small shift in the game catalog of GAMEVIL and players can now test their platforming and action-RPG skills while attempting to save the world of Aztaran. After picking between the star…

Baseball Superstars® 2011 Pro Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Baseball Superstars® 2011 Pro Review

Sometimes it can be lonely at the top, but the Baseball Superstars® series from GAMEVIL has earned its position of dominance thanks to its in-depth and detailed baseball gameplay that remains lighthearted despite the intense management required to succeed. Their third outing (BS2011) is no less of a beast in terms of content, but additional refinements to the gameplay show that GAMEVIL aren't interested in resting on their laurels. The controls for BS2011 haven't seen much of a ch…

HYBRID 2: Saga of Nostalgia Review

HYBRID 2: Saga of Nostalgia Review

It was a year ago when Gamevil released the first in their action brawler RPG series 'HYBRID' on to the App Store and now gamers can get their hands on the sequel, 'HYBRID 2: Saga of Nostalgia'. Once again you'll follow the adventures of Grey as he attempts to reunite with Fairy, a mysterious woman that has given him the power of the Gravity Orb. The basic gameplay is not unlike your basic side-scrolling brawler, with Grey being maneuvered by an 8-way d-pad and initiating basic combin…

Soccer Superstars® Review

Those familiar with GAMEVIL's Superstars series of Baseball games will need little introduction to their latest title Soccer Superstars. However, those new to the action-packed mix of team-management with arcade and RPG gameplay will be in for a fun ride as you explore all of the games available modes and challenges. Much like the Baseball series, Soccer Superstars uses a simple and familiar control setup for their matches, with a virtual stick controlling the direction of your player…
