Coin Army Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 9 months ago
Coin Army Review

Have you ever played one of those coin tossing games at an arcade (I know arcades aren't exactly common any more unless you live in Asia, but stick with me here)? Coin Army takes the concept of chucking coins forthwith, and trades out the opportunity to win cash and prizes with the success of a war effort... all wrapped up in a freemium package. Mmm, tasty. With the flick of a finger, you send coins out into battle. Think of them as thin, round, and shiny soldiers. Hitting tanks, comm…

iBomber Attack Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 9 months ago
iBomber Attack Review

The previous iBomber game was a rather standard Tower Defence affair. Not wanting to rest on their laurels it seems, developers Cobra Mobile have switched genres to deliver a top down tank driving, enemy shooting, and vehicle exploding experience. The question is how long is driving around war-torn maps destroying everything in sight enjoyable, and the answer to that question really rests on the player. Let's explore further. Each mission has a series of primary and secondary objectiv…

Totem Runner Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
Totem Runner Review

Credit where due, Totem Runner by Yagoda Productions and Chillingo isn't just a beautiful game, it's a beautiful concept too. Despite joining the throng of auto-runners already available, the primarily passive play style, combined with tightly designed stages, make it a refreshing casual distraction. We're jumping ahead though, so lets get back to basics. You play as a mystic (with distinctly Mayan overtones) who is braving the darkness sweeping the world. By harnessing the power of l…

He-Man: The Most Powerful Game in the Universe™ Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
He-Man: The Most Powerful Game in the Universe™ Review

There's one thing Skeletor always had right about He-Man - he's a bit of a dunce. Not your typical muscle-headed stubbornness mind you, but rather a blind 'do right at all costs' sort of fellow who'll act before thinking. So it's entirely appropriate that Mattel's reboot of the series as a side-scrolling action brawler should feel just as dense, but not in the mindless 'fun' way. You, as Adam in his guise of He-Man, are tasked with stopping Skeletor from pulling off his latest scheme.…


Kumo Lumo Review

Kumo Lumo Review

The humble cloud is not often considered a harbinger of war or an avatar of suffering, but in the land of Kumo Lumo you play the almost perpetually smiling angel of death. Wait? No one else got that vibe? You mean it's just a cutesy light-action title with lots of grinding? No matter how you play it, Chillingo and Blitz Games' latest certainly has an interesting concept. The basic gameplay goes a little like this: The world below Kumo can be scrolled along with a swipe. Kumo himself c…

Grow Away! Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
Grow Away! Review

The rodents and pests of the world have run out of junk food to eat, so now they're after the plants and vegetables. What's a tomato to do? Taking a page out of the Angry Bird playbook they jump in to a slingshot and fire themselves - kamikaze style - in to the waves of creatures headed for their barricade. Grow Away! by Soco Soft is a disturbing concept when you break it down, but seeing as it's all colorful explosions and cute faces, I guess we can let that tid-bit slide. Essentiall…

Dead Stop™ Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Dead Stop™ Review

Dead Stop is a combination of two overplayed elements of the App Store. The first is the use of zombies, and the second is creating a game type similar to that of a very popular title. In the second case, the tower defense genre has waned in popularity the last couple of years, and if a game is good, who cares if it uses the undead? Dead Stop has these rationales working in its favor, delivering a solid TD experience that happens to feature zombies as its main antagonizers. The zombie…

Snail Bob Review

Snail Bob Review

Some would argue that the iOS platform is always going to be a casual one - of course there's the occasional 'hardcore' release, but with so much money to be made off those who just want a quick, but fun distraction, it's easy to see why deep and challenging titles aren't more common. Snail Bob is yet another 3-star physics puzzler, joining the already large fray, but it goes for that third, even more elusive market, the young-gamer. Snail Bob just wants to get home, but on the way he…

Electric Tentacle Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Electric Tentacle Review

Sometimes you feel ridiculous repeating the premises of some iPhone titles, but at least a lot of them seem to make sense, at least in their own strange universe. With Electric Tentacle, even its universe is an oddity. Animals shrunk to microscopic size, using electricity to travel through the highways and bi-ways of where ever you've been stuck, trying to escape the evil nanomachines. Keep in mind that this is a high score game based around seeing how far you can get before you head t…

Cosmic Bump Review

Cosmic Bump Review

We do get some odd aliens that crash land on our planet. In Cosmic Bump, these cute little critters need to collect fuel cells to get back into space, and their collection method is a strange one. One might even say inefficient. First they launch themselves into the air where they've set up all manner of pinball-esque contraptions to throw their bodies around until they've reached quota. Failure doesn't only mean being stranded, it also results in a sickening splat upon the hard paveme…

Monkey Slam Review

If you're a giant monkey, obviously you want to eat fruit... but what are you to do when said fruit is hidden inside of blocks and gems that are oddly hovering over your head all along your island paradise? Throw a smaller monkey up to crack open the blocks and harvest the goodness inside of course! Monkey Slam is a version of Breakout, replacing the ball and paddles with monkeys, changing up the crazy power-ups and adding a dash more visual flair. Now Breakout as fun as it can be is k…

The Last Driver Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
The Last Driver Review

It seems that at the same time the world is beset by zombie apocalypse, alien invasion, and nuclear annihilation (which was obviously triggered to combat the first two horrors). Despite all this, there are still survivors, and some of them have cars. You might be the only one with a working car however. The game is called The Last Driver after all. Fans of flash games will recognize the design here, as it's quite popular. Play the game, die rather quickly, use your coins to upgrade yo…

One Tap Hero™ Review

Does an evil wizard need a reason to turn your girlfriend into a teddy bear that can only be saved by collecting the power of the stars? Not if he's truly evil, and not just faking it. This premise sets up a bite sized platformer that is as delightful to control as it is to play. This is One Tap Hero. There have been quite a few platformers out there that have used the control strengths of the iPhone to great effect through taps and swipes as opposed to on screen buttons that only fee…

Jelly Cannon Reloaded Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 12 months ago
Jelly Cannon Reloaded Review

Jelly is one the world's more interesting substances. Not quite a liquid, not quite a solid, definitely not a gas; it wobbles too and fro, and in most of its forms, is pretty darn delicious. One of its many uses is apparently to shoot it out of a cannon, to push remnants of the shattered sunjelly together (which are mostly hanging out around Rube Goldberg-ian physics devices). If you've played a physics flinger, this game operates on the same principle, it's just that you tap to shoot…

Critter Escape Review

Isn't it always the way. You're some weird anthropomorphic creature minding your own business chasing butterflies in a field, when you're captured by scientists and probed for study, only to have to sneak and attack your way to freedom. Critter Escape is a line drawing sneak game, popularized by such titles as Spy Mouse, in which you must draw a line to move your critter around the guards and to the exit. What this title brings to the table are challenge based stars, a host of interest…
