Bloodstroke Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Alex Beech, 7 months ago
Bloodstroke Review

Doves, blood, and excessive violenge - director John Woo's fingerprints are all over Bloodstroke. But, while at first glance this new game from Chillingo seems to be relying on the famous director's name and a distinct visual style, it actually adds a lot of interesting twists of its own to the top-down shooter formula. Perhaps the most striking thing about Bloodstroke is its handsome watercolour visuals. This powerful art style uses strong black brush strokes on a white bac…

In Fear I Trust Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Alex Beech, 7 months ago
In Fear I Trust Review

In many ways, Black Wing Foundations' take on survival horror ticks all the right boxes. Spooky institutional setting: check. Freaky sanity and fear effects: check. But at some point during the process of freaking us out, In Fear I Trust shifts from unnerving to frustrating. Waking on a rickety bed in a Russian prison asylum, the hero of the tale has no memory of the events that lead him there. The door to his cell is locked, but everything he needs to escape is dotted around the room…

Feed Me Oil 2 Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Alex Beech, 8 months, 1 week ago
Feed Me Oil 2 Review

Holy Water Games's Feed Me Oil was a charming fluid dynamics puzzler that was conceptually simple but mechanically challenging. Now, the team has returned with Feed Me Oil 2, a title that manages to build on its predecessor with the simple addition of water. The goal in Feed Me Oil 2 is to transport oil from a nozzle to a creature's gaping maw. The black liquid spills from its spout with very little force however, so it is up to gravity, and a selection of well-placed tools,…

Icycle: On Thin Ice Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 9 months, 2 weeks ago
Icycle: On Thin Ice Review

As iOS gamers, we've been exposed to some weird scenarios over the years. Narky birds with porky vendettas; hungry green monsters which subsist entirely on dangling sugar lozenges – to us, these things are just another day in the App Store. Icycle: On Thin Ice is game about a naked man named Dennis, who finds himself riding a tricycle through ever-shifting landscapes. Originally we thought the game might be showing us a dream or nightmare scenario. Then Dennis gets hit by a fish…

Anomaly 2 Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By James Gilmour, 10 months, 2 weeks ago
Anomaly 2 Review

When Anomaly Warzone Earth rolled onto the App Store two years ago, it made a big impact. Not only did it popularise the now well-established tower offense genre, it proved you could port high-quality PC releases to the App Store without compromising too much functionality. Anomaly 2, the first true sequel after the Anomaly Korea expansion, brings back the futuristic sci-fi warfare that made the original game so popular, and adds just enough bells and whistles to warrant you giving th…

Mega Dead Pixel Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 10 months, 3 weeks ago
Mega Dead Pixel Review

So there's this happy little pixel falling through space. If it paints enough shapes or collects enough pixels, it will one day become the mega pixel, a wondrous being of liberation and. It's a fun existance while it last, but the ending of our story is always the same: the pixel crumbles back to its original form, and eventually is snuffed out of existence. A moment of silence, please. Mega Dead Pixel is an endless runner - or an endless faller, if you prefer. You move a descending p…

Fright Heights Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By James Gilmour, 10 months, 3 weeks ago
Fright Heights Review

Games which revolve around hotel management usually involve trying to fill up your holiday inn by attracting as many guests as possible. Chillingo's spooky scare-'em-up Fright Heights, on the other hand, is all about scaring guests away. It's essentially a block puzzler in which you arrange guests and ghosts throughout the hotel to clear out floors and empty the building. Each floor has a fear rating which must be hit in order wipe it from the screen. To cajole your guests into paroxi…

Steampunk Tower Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By James Gilmour, 11 months ago
Steampunk Tower Review

Most tower defence games get their title from the numerous weapon towers which players must erect to protect themselves. In the case of Steampunk Tower, the developers have gone one step further, and put a bloody great tower in the middle of the screen to act as a support structure for your weapon towers. It's a bit like Inception, only with towers. Anyhow, this being a steampunk game, you must use a mixture of 1930s-era tech to fend off wave after wave of moisture-powered monstrositi…

Bombcats Special Edition Review

Bombcats Special Edition Review

Chillingo has been experimenting with freemium games in recent months. One of these experiments was Bombcats, a game which combined the physics flinging fun of exploding kitties with a freemium gem system. We didn't get around to reviewing the original release, but with Bombcats Special Edition sidelining the gem currency and adding more content, we thought we'd take second look. So there are these trapped kittens. To free them, you chuck an exploding cat (because cats explode now) in…

Abyss Attack Review

Abyss Attack Review

Abyss Attack is an endless-runner in the garb of a shmup. Here are your instructions: shoot everything, play till you die, use the currency to upgrade your craft, and try to overcome the temptation to spend real money on upgrades. To control your underwater craft, you simply drag your finger around the screen. You fire automatically, while picking up  packages will change your weapon. These packages usually contain equippable power-ups like blades and bombs. Each stage ends with…

The Impossible Line Review

The Impossible Line Review

The Impossible Line features a concept that we've seen before on iOS. The aim of the game is to draw a line from point to point, avoiding all the hazards in-between. The catch is that once you start drawing said line, the obstacles disappear, leaving you to rely on your memory. For this incarnation of the concept, a radar has been added, as well as a few power-ups. But as is the case with many free to play games these days, The Impossible Line is rendered almost impossible to enj…

Gloomy Hollow Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 2 months ago
Gloomy Hollow Review

Welcome to purgatory. Welcome to Gloomy Hollow. What better way to spend eternity than by engaging in an action-RPG experience set in expansive worlds packed full of enemies, that's then broken down into small, manageable levels. Hell, if you find enough souls, you may even be able to buy your way back to the land of the living. Now, we've seen plenty of ARPGs on the App Store before. And yes, we've even seen bite sized levels before, but there's something in the design and presentati…

Bridgy Jones™ Review

The following is a public service announcement: Those with no grasp of physics or basic engineering (like Dave who, wrote this review) will probably not get the most out of a game like Bridgy Jones. Of course, this isn't to say that it's not a good game. It just that here, as with other construction-based physics games like World of Goo, your enjoyment hinges on how effective you are at throwing up load-bearing scaffolds. In this case, you're throwing up improvised structures to get y…

Tiny Troopers 2: Special Ops Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 4 months ago
Tiny Troopers 2: Special Ops Review

The first Tiny Troopers is a game we missed reviewing when it was released last year. Well now that the sequel is out, we can amend that error. Many comparisons have been made of this series to the early nineties action series Cannon Fodder, and that comparison is quite apt indeed. You take control of a number of tiny troopers (as the name would suggest) who move, fire, and duck out of the way of enemy projectiles as a cohesive unit. You have primary and secondary objectives to achieve…


Madmonster Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 4 months ago
Madmonster Review

Monsters have always had a place in the annals of gaming. Where so much of what we play is based on conflict and destruction, it can be a nice escape to enter the skin of a giant monstrosity whose only purpose is that of devastation. Rampage is well remembered for a reason. Madmonster takes the idea of causing mayhem upon a metropolis and military power, but moves it into easily digestible bite sized gaming chunks; snacks if you will. The question is of course, if it can hold the atten…
