Pinch Peeps Review

Review Everplay By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Pinch Peeps Review

Simple can often mean better, especially with the iPhone's unique strengths when it comes to control schemes. Pinch Peeps is not what we would call a puzzle game, but more a hand-eye coordination tool for younger gamers, where the goal is to use your thumb and finger to pair up cute and colorful creatures for your place on the high score leaderboards. There are two game modes available; timed, and endless. In timed mode the goal is to create as many pairs as fast as possible to stay t…

Pandemic 2.5 Review

Review Dark Realm Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Pandemic 2.5 Review

It's a strange thing, but some may know the meme, but not the game that was responsible for creating it - I am of course referring to Pandemic II by Dark Realm Studios. Even if you were half way around the world, Madagascar closed its borders if it heard you had a runny nose. The developer is back, this time in iOS form, to bring its infamous infection simulator to the masses, adding in a few tweaks to make it a worthwhile purchase for returning fans. Your task is simple - infect and…

AbraWORDabrA Review

AbraWORDabrA Review

AbraWORDabrA has a flaw - from the outset it feels and plays almost exactly like every 'edutainment' game crammed down your craw during your formative years. The problems are simple, but you can't move on until you get past the rudimentary game slapped on top of it. However, initial pacing issues aside, AbraWORDabrA by Total Arkade Software soon shows its teeth and you'll almost be wishing for the simple game you were complaining about. The game is split up in to two main modes, with…

Sir Benfro’s Brilliant Balloon Review

Review Explore and Create Limited By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Sir Benfro’s Brilliant Balloon Review

If the art style of Sir Benfro's Brilliant Balloon were to have any comparison, it would probably be to children's books like 'Where the Wild Things Are' that visually painted an alien world of both wonder and a little foreboding. Sir Benfro is off to explore new places and chart the exotic creatures that inhabit them, and it's up to the player to guide him through his journey safely. Sir Benfro travels by way of firefly filled balloon. Their lights propel him along, but every so ofte…

Fibble Review

Review Crytek GmbH By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Fibble Review

Crytek, better known for developing 3D game engines that push computers to their limits, have finally dipped their toes in to the casual gaming scene with Fibble. I say casual because it has all the hallmarks of a relaxing puzzle title, from it's excessively 'cute' presentation; simple drag and tap control scheme; and relatively limited amount of content... however it's anything but a simple game. You play as Fibble - a rubbery, bouncy alien attempting to find his crew and repair his…

Draw Something Review

Review OMGPOP By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Draw Something Review

I bring this message to you in the brief moments of time I now have spare to me. It is abundantly clear to me now that downloading, installing and playing Draw Something with my friends was a huge mistake - I need to work, but I can't... I'm stuck trying to work out how best to depict the word 'Morning' in a clever new way. OMGPOP - you have single-handedly ruined the productivity of smartphone owners around the world. For those who haven't jumped on board the increasingly popular cr…

Fairway Solitaire by Big Fish Review

Review Big Fish Games, Inc By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Fairway Solitaire by Big Fish Review

When starting up a game called Fairway Solitaire, the name suggests a lot. “OK”, you think. “Somehow they've combined solitaire with golf. This should be interesting”. Then you're hit with a cheerfully animated introduction about the age old war between golf and gophers before being thrown into a puzzle game with not only intriguing mechanics, but plenty of personality. Not every course in this game (and there are many on offer) is eighteen holes, but the basic…

Diggin' Dogs Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Diggin' Dogs Review

In a world ruled by cute dogs, three adventurers will dig their way through hazardous caverns in order to retrieve the lost pirate-dog treasure, along with a few bones - because, you know, they might get hungry too! Diggin' Dogs by Soap Creative and Chillingo is a hard game to pin down despite bearing a striking similarity to similar treasure hunting titles of the past. You see, the dogs you control (as well as the environment itself) is subject to the physical influences of your iDev…

Tongue Tied! Review

Review Mojo Bones Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Tongue Tied! Review

Animal lovers beware: Tongue Tied! by Mojo Bones is so insanely, heartwarmingly, saccharin coatedly loveable that you may want to buy it on impulse... don't. Without the incredibly affectionate characters of Mick and Ralph (the tongue-tied doggy-duo), you might just throw your iDevice at a wall, so stay a while and listen before making that final decision. Each of the game's 50 currently available levels is a physics playground with the lovable dogs acting as your tool for point scori…

Let Me Out Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Let Me Out Review

Show me the way to go home. I'm tired and I want to go to bed. I was trapped inside a book about an hour ago and it's doing things to my head. Is it a good or bad thing when your game's premise can be surmised by changing a few words in a drinking song? An unlucky little book dragon has been sucked into the pages of the tome it was reading and now through the use of cannons and strategically placed beams of wood, the golden pages need to be collected to send it home. Each level has t…

Zen Pinball Review

Review ZEN Studios Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Zen Pinball Review

I'm seriously having flashbacks here - as a child of the 80s and a self-admitted video game nerd, the local video arcades were a veritable haven for me. While pinball games were never my forte, there was a distinct magical allure that came from the newer generation of fancy and complex titles that tried to capture the essence of a franchise, typified by the introduction of Midway's classic Addams Family pinball table. These memories are distinct and powerful, which is why I was surpris…

Mage Gauntlet Review

Review Rocketcat Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Mage Gauntlet Review

When you've built up a reputation for being one of the best at creating a certain kind of game, it would seem like madness to completely throw it out the window and start on something entirely new. So, when rumors surfaced of Rocketcat Games starting work on an Action-RPG it was almost hard to believe. Despite their previous history of ninja-rope swinging time-trial games, Mage Gauntlet made its debut on the App Store. The game is, first and foremost, very self-aware of its nature and…

Rocket Claw Review

Review Fugazo, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Rocket Claw Review

Oh those darn humans, they've gone and got themselves all lost and floating around space... what's a simple rescue-bot to do? Thankfully the rescue robot in Rocket Claw by Fugazo has a trick up its sleeve and it doesn't take a genius to guess whether the name of the game has anything to do with it. Upon starting up the game you're presented with the charming, claw-wielding robot CLAWD. and all you have to do is tap the screen to launch a rocket-propelled claw to grab on to crystals, p…

Cado Review

Review ClearCut Games By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 1 month ago
Cado Review

Sometimes it's nice to sit back and enjoy a simple game that just feels good to play. Cado by Clearcut games have taken the sketchbook motif that was insanely popular amongst iPhone games a couple years ago and have used it to make a well handled physics action game. Cado, a black ball needs to get to the portal in each stage. The way he travels there is through rotating the level left or right, causing him to roll around the various obstacles into safety. There is also a star to coll…

Touch Detective Review

Review BeeworksGames By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Touch Detective Review

The App Store is in many ways a second chance at life for some games that otherwise missed their mark the first time around or feel they have enough legs to penetrate the market again. Touch Detective (also known as Mystery Detective) by BeeWorks came out in most regions for the Nintendo DS in 2006 and attempted to showcase a point-and-click adventure style game for the system. While not critically acclaimed it was still a fun game and now iOS users can give this quirky game a go for t…
