Dice Soccer! Review

Review LambdaMu Games By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 1 month ago
Dice Soccer! Review

It's finally happened! The pairing you were waiting for. The fast paced action of soccer combined with the slow methodical tension of a dice roll. I guess both games require luck but while an odd pairing, Dice Soccer is a pretty addictive title. You are the manager of a soccer team. Starting in a training camp you have to win or draw matches to earn enough stars to move up the ranks and compete in the big leagues. You have three lines of players. Three forwards, three defense, and a g…

Reckless Getaway Review

Review Polarbit By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Reckless Getaway Review

While I can't speak for everyone, there's nothing quite like a great car chase scene in a film. Aside from the child-like glee that comes from watching the action and destruction inherent in these scenes, there's another exciting level of knowing you're watching man and machine working in a perfect ballet for the camera. Reckless Getaway by Polarbit and Pixelbite (the developers behind Reckless Racing) have put aside any sense of reality in an attempt to create a madcap, slapstick poin…

QuBIT Review

QuBIT Review

As much as reviewers like to espouse the virtues of video games and (with their critics hat on) even point out why something works, there are games that come by now and then that seem to almost defy deeper analysis. QuBIT by Secret Sauce is, quite simply, a fun game to play and despite only having one mode of play it's an easy game to keep coming back to. The basic premise of QuBIT is to collect as much 'Obscurium' from the planet surface as possible, unfortunately you have a limited…

Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters Review

Review Warner Bros. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters Review

As I write this Australia is yet to have the (dis?)pleasure of watching the 2011 release of Green Lantern - why we’re subjected to a two month delay is beyond my understanding, but it does provide a great opportunity to spend some time with Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters for the iOS. At first it’s nice to see the game forgoing the expected 2D/3D brawler in favor of something slightly different as you control Hal Jordan in this 3D shooter. Better still, the less-trav…

Pocket Academy Review

Review Kairosoft Co.,Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Pocket Academy Review

Ask and ye shall receive - it wasn’t all that long ago that Japanese iOS gamers had their hands on the latest release from Kairosoft, Pocket Academy, but now English speaking audiences can try their hands at running a high-school. Much like the other titles in the ‘Story’ series your job is to manage a company (or in this case an institution) in order to keep it growing and providing the best services in the country. First things first though; ‘Game Dev’…

The Great Jitters: Pudding Panic Review

Review kunst-stoff GmbH By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
The Great Jitters: Pudding Panic Review

Unless it’s your first time, when you jump on to a ‘Haunted House’ ride at a carnival or fairground you know what you’re in for - usually a tightly packed rail-ride filled with cheap thrills and spooks where anticipation rather than genuine fear gets your blood pumping. Thankfully the experience is short-lived, but in Pudding Panic by kunst-stoff a poor thrill-seeking jelly is forced to live through a nightmare of 48 separate areas in the most poorly maintained…

Escape from LaVille Review

Review Gabriele Pellistri By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
Escape from LaVille Review

Were you ever 'treated' to a book of puzzles as a kid? Maybe it was a gift from a well-meaning aunt or grandparent looking to provide you with something educational and entertaining at the same time. It's a bitter-sweet joy that's almost perfectly captured by the puzzle-adventure genre and while some games fall in to the 'sweet' category, others like Escape from LaVille tend to slide in to the other. After a brief expositional introduction you're dumped in to a locked room with nothin…

Prince Penny Review

Review Lionbird By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
Prince Penny Review

How can a King remain a King if his kingdom is entirely destitute? Easy! Just wait for flying lion-bird's to poop out coins all over your kingdom and collect the gold for insant profit. This does assume you're living in the world of Prince Penny by developer Lionbird, but it scores points for originality if nothing else. One of the upsides of having so many endless titles cluttering up the App Store is the chance for something fun and bizarre to make its way to the top of the pack, gi…

Nano Panda Review

Review Unit9 By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Nano Panda Review

Don't be fooled by this game's cute exterior - the panda's may be cute and the panicked reactions of the evil atoms may be amusing, but Nano Panda by Unit9 isn't for the easily frustrated. While the idea of destroying atoms with cute pandas may sound like a recipe for heart-break, you'll soon wish you could fire a thousand pandas in to a thousand atoms just to get some satisfaction. It sounds like I'm raging out on the game, but let me be perfectly clear - the game is insanely addictiv…

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…

Gold & Chocolate Review

Review Cocobic By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Gold & Chocolate Review

While it's great to kill some time with the latest action-based arcade title, sometimes you just want to wind things back and chill out instead. Gold & Chocolate by Cocobic is all about calm and considered decisions as you attempt to sort the baddies out from the cute little good guys thanks to the light of a golden comet. Tilting the screen will cause the comet(s) to streak their way across the screen, moving at different paces and angles depending on the level you're on. You'll…

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six®: Shadow Vanguard Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six®: Shadow Vanguard Review

Having already shown their deft skills at producing great First Person Shooters on iOS devices, Gameloft have taken up the reins for the Rainbow Six franchise with the release of Shadow Vanguard. The focus on tactical awareness is much sharper than in previous titles like Modern Combat 2 and players will need to command a squad in order to carry out their missions with ghost-like silence. Gone are the days of intense pre-mission setups requiring long tedious memorization of tactical m…

Pizarro Review

Review Corrino Software By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Pizarro Review

While you may not have heard about Jezzball, it's likely that if you've owned a desktop PC during the mid to late 90s that you've encountered this simple game in one form or another. Based, in part, on the Arcade classic Qix, it has seen several iterations on the App Store already however Pizarro by Corrino Software has to be the classiest version to date. The basic gameplay revolves around touching the screen to inflate circles and players will need to cover at least 80% of the scree…

Trigonon Review

Review Just Funny Games S.r.l. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Trigonon Review

Trigonon by Just Funny Games goes to a lot of effort to introduce players to the concept of pinballs being 'thoughts' that need to be captured by exploiting memories (positive and negative) and other metaphorical objects, but ultimately this puzzler will test your skills at quickly analyzing levels and creating barriers capture all the balls as fast as possible. Tapping on the level will generate a barrier (as long as you have enough energy to do so) and can subsequently be spun aroun…

Collision Effect Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Collision Effect Review

I'm not sure why the orbs in Collision Effect by Chillingo and Vishindo needed to be named anything at all, but if you were wondering, they're called Zybbles. Zybbles need to collide with one another, but they can only collide with Zybbles of the same color, so you'll need impeccable timing and keen spacial recognition skills to either beat your high-score or to solve the puzzle you're currently on. I think I'll just call them orbs from now on yeah? Much of what makes Collision Effec…
