Madmonster Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 7 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…


R.I.P. Rally Review

R.I.P. Rally Review

RIP Rally is an arena combat game where you drive around a rally car with a turret mounted machine gun, ploughing down and shooting waves of zombies, trying to survive for as long as possible while completing missions, collecting coins, and refilling your health and ammo reserves. If that already sounds like a good time, you don't need the rest of this review, but for those of you unconvinced or on the fence, let's explore this freemium title. Essentially the game plays like a twin-st…

Dream Chaser Review

With so many endless runners, it relieves us game reviewers when we see a new idea brought to the table, as small a change as it may be. What can stand to infuriate us more than just an average entry into this genre is if the change ends being to the detriment of the whole experience. That's where we find ourselves with Dream Chaser, an endless runner that while having an endless mode also includes a story mode, where the mechanics and intricacies of the game are spread out alongside a…

Snoopy Coaster Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 8 months ago
Snoopy Coaster Review

Snoopy Coaster is insidious. Last year Dave reviewed Madcoaster, and thought that it was an intriguing premise made far too forgiving, so much so that the game became quite boring. Well then why is Snoopy Coaster better when it's basically the same game with a different skin? well because Dave is a Peanuts fan of course, and while it's easy to sneer at a game using a licensed property to try and pull in fans of that property, the sad truth is that it works. Now don't get us wrong, this…

Fury of the Gods Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 8 months ago
Fury of the Gods Review

Smashing small, angry humans in to a fine red paste (or an even finer black powder) with the powers of a god is something we've had fun with before in games like Babel Rising. So it only makes sense that Spectral Games would seek to exploit the mythos rich Greek pantheon for their take on the almost literal 'tower defense' genre in Fury of the Gods. You're given control of one of three different gods (Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades) and tasked with protecting their temple from the angry hu…

The Gods: Rebellion Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
The Gods: Rebellion Review

Brawlers of various incarnations have always found a home on the App Store. Their charm is simple: You get to punch/stab or otherwise beat up a near endless variety of foes over and over again. It's immediate and it's effective, and barring horrible controls you're going to get some sort of enjoyment out of it. The Gods: Rebellion follows the God of War formula, almost to the letter (albeit with a Chinese mythos instead of a Greek one) making it a familiar - if uninspired - experience…

Cyto Review

Cyto Review

Editor's Note: While playing Cyto for the video record I noticed the iPhone 5 build did indeed have an aiming arc - it's quite possible older generation iOS devices may not be displaying the arc as either a bug or due to performance issues. Ah, the amnesiac; a video game trope that has lasted the ages and no doubt will be with us until the end of the art form. Cyto is a weird little rubber ball or cell looking creature that wakes up in a strange world not knowing who he is. Not only d…

Rock Runners Review

Rock Runners Review

Where Rayman Jungle Run didn't hold back the punches even despite the utterly brain-dead single-touch controls it uses, Rock Runners by Recoil Games and Chillingo gives players a 'Get out of Jail' card in just about every pitfall and hazard it throws at you. However, where in other games this would remove the challenge and thus impetus for completing a level, Rock Runners retains a sense of flow and keeps throwing hazards at you. In a way, the safety net it provides for the player is…

Pixel People Review

Pixel People Review

Earth, gone. The human race, pretty much destroyed. Send in the clones! It's time to repopulate the species among the stars; to create a clone based utopia. First up, let us preface this review with a warning. This is a true freemium title. Many of the actions in this game take time to complete (up to a few minutes worth). All the time based actions can be sped up by using the utopium resource which is the in-app currency. Despite this, Pixel People strives to give you things to do so…

Tin Man Can Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Tin Man Can Review

There's something to be said for 'trial & error' gameplay done right. Games like Limbo and Another World are good examples. The player learns not to do something by being killed for their curiosity or their lack of reflex, but the checkpoint system of the game is lenient enough to allow the player to safely pursue their natural curiosity and exploratory drive. It's a nice balance, and one that Tin Man Can misses completely. Not only because every death sends you back to the start…

Wake the Cat Review

See the cat. See the cat dream of yarn. Let's make the cat's dreams come true! See the yarn? Roll the yarn. Roll the yarn towards the cat. Don't let those hyper-dimensional portal slippers or gravitational fields get in the way. Let's make the cat's dreams come true! If our intro hasn't given it away, Wake the Cat is both a simple concept and a perplexing one. Each level consists of a small overhead view of a portion of the house, and of course the object is to roll the yarn towards t…

Swing King Review

Being a monarch must be taxing. Oh I’m not talking about the day to day turmoil of settling disputes and playing politics, but more when you're trying to smooch your girl-frog and some evil black furball comes along and kills the mood by sucking all the stars away. That transgression cannot stand! So in Swing King, you set off trying to collect all the stars back by flinging yourself from anchor point to anchor point, trying to reach the saddle of your flying unicorn before final…

Anomaly Korea Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Anomaly Korea Review

Although it's dubbed as the sequel to last year's smash-hit Anomaly Warzone Earth, 'Korea' is more of an expansion as it tacks on a handful of new features, along with a handful of stages to enjoy them in. Don't let that discourage you though - if anything it refreshes the franchise and pairs well with the detailed visual overhaul also included in this release. The name of the game is 'tower defense', but instead of defending yourself from waves of enemies with towers, you're defendin…

Sky Hero™ Review

Your fortress is under attack, a message needs to be relayed to headquarters. What is a brave soldier to do? Why it is his prerogative, nay his duty, to leap from the tower and free fall to victory, avoiding enemy bombardment on the way down. Sky Hero puts you in the floppy pants of such a soldier. Your plummet is closely being followed by a menacing fire beast as well as his minions, which consist of barrels, cannons, and hacksaw carrying birdies. Tilting is the name of the game as y…

Endless Road Review

Endless Road Review

Maybe it's jaded memory talking, but there's really not many good things that come to mind when talking about the arcade driving classic Outrun. Perhaps the aspect that stands out the most though is the decision making process in which path you took each leg of the race. While this had no real bearing on the gameplay, a change of environment is always a welcome addition in any game, and it is this exact mechanic that resurfaces in Endless Road... though any other comparisons to Outrun…
