Circuloid Brick Breaker Review

Review Macoscope sp. z o.o. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Circuloid Brick Breaker Review

Take one circle, add paddles around it and insert a few bricks and a ball - it sounds simple enough, but 'Circuloid' by Macroscope is a unique take on the typical brick-breaking gameplay and by no means an easy game to master. Several control variants are available, including simple swipes and tilt controls, though no matter what you choose the real skill is in keeping track of your ball (or balls depending on power-ups) while also keeping your paddles aligned around the play area. Va…

6th Planet Review

Review Monkube Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
6th Planet Review

It takes a lot of confidence to revive a classic type of gameplay like 'Lander' with the intent of creating a compelling video game, but Monkube have managed to pull it off, though I suspect the incredible artistic talent backing the project certainly helped. '6th Planet' follows the journey of a space-module confined monkey bound for Saturn as he attempts to avoid dangerous hazards while conserving enough fuel to make it to each subsequent base. You're only given two controls to mane…

Spires Review

Review Prophetic Sky By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Spires Review

I'm a man of eclectic tastes and developer Prophetic Sky previously managed to ensnare me by releasing Townrs Defender, a hero-defense style game that was a rarity at the time. Their latest release, Spires, is somewhat less radical with its relatively standard tower defense gameplay, but shades of something greater lurk behind its thin exterior. Those familiar with tower-defense titles won't be too surprised at the basic controls and gameplay, with towers in standard varieties (direct…

Buddy Rush ® Review

Review Company 100 Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Buddy Rush ® Review

Freemium titles, or more specifically, games that implement some form of play restriction can get a bad rap, especially if the game harshly limits the time you can play as an incentive to spend money. Adding a social twist via Facebook only seeks to reinforce the habit (and knock the competitive aspect up a notch) and it's easy to feel a bit skeptical about new similar titles, especially if you've been burned in the past. Buddy Rush by Company 100 takes this free game model and attach…

Poker With Bob Review

Review Scary Robot Productions By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Poker With Bob Review

There's an elegance to Poker that isn't always talked about, but with little more than a deck and a way to keep track of your bets you're able to sit down with one or more people and compete in an enjoyable game of wits and calculated chance. Poker With Bob by Scary Robot Productions tries to capture the personal touch of playing with a real opponent and you'll catch yourself smirking, frowning and even trying to pull a poker face in response to Bob's detailed animated expressions. Fo…

JellyCar 3 Review

Review Disney By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
JellyCar 3 Review

The JellyCar series has finally spawned a new sequel and unlike 2009's deviation in style, this release by Walaber and Disney has returned to the whacky time-trial racing in the (now) free original title. With little more than your moxxy, a world made out of jellow and a few power-ups, you'll need to take on a variety of levels in an attempt to complete them in the fastest time possible. Tapping the sides of the screen will accelerate or brake in the direction indicated, while tipping…

Captain Puzzle Review

Review Spearhead Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Captain Puzzle Review

The timing of the release of Captain Puzzle by Spearhead Entertainment couldn't be more unfortunate, but sometimes fate can be a cruel mistress and you have to play with the hand you're dealt. Thankfully, while Captain Puzzle features gameplay not unlike Bust-A-Move, the puzzle-based focus makes for a more demanding title. As Captain Puzzle, you need to match three or more colored orbs together by throwing (and occasionally bouncing) randomly assigned orbs around the screen. Initially…

NBA JAM by EA SPORTS™ Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
NBA JAM by EA SPORTS™ Review

There's only one thing holding me back from starting off the review by declaring NBA JAM by EA Sports an instant must-buy - there's no co-operative or multiplayer modes of any sort available. For a game that so lovingly recreates one of the Arcade and home console's most exciting basketball-related titles, it seems almost unforgivable that I can't share the fun with a friend or slam a firey ball of doom in the face of a random online player. Coming to grips with the controls of NBA JA…

BeamOut Review

Review Under Clouds Studio LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
BeamOut Review

Frustration, thy name is Labyrinth. Though lets not forget that there's a satisfaction in overcoming the difficulties put before us, resulting in a fist pumping cry of joy as you exclaim your victory over developers who think they can defeat the humble 'gamer'. BeamOut by Under Clouds Games takes a different spin on the concept, giving you control over a lost UFO that needs to recharge to make its way home and you'll encounter more than a few difficulties in the process while attemptin…

DeathFall Review

Review Riverman Media LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
DeathFall Review

If you haven't heard the term 'ear worm' before, let me explain: Have you ever had a moment when you realize you have a small loop of a song stuck in your head and it's almost impossible to get your brain to skip over it? That's an 'ear worm'. DeathFall by Jurgis Games is the gaming equivalent of an 'ear worm' and while there could be something grand beyond the walls of this game, you feel like you're stuck in some never ending loop that never attempts to break free. The journey you t…

Garage Inc. Review

Sure you may have powdered a few noses, treated a few people to spas and served them tasty food in the past, but have you pulled up your sleeves to repair some vintage vehicles? Garage Inc. by Breakthrough Entertainment is a management style title with a classic twist and you'll have to work heard to break out of your debt with the local mobsters. After taking a loan from his cousin, Angelo Marito opens up a garage in Chicago and shortly thereafter is told about where that money came…

FluOrama Review

Review PixelAmmo Corp. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
FluOrama Review

Wrangling germs may not sound like a particularly interesting or exciting job, but in FluOrama by Pixel Ammo you'll have to do just that as you seek to correct the mistake of a clumsy scientist who dropped a dangerous concoction of bacteria. On each stage you'll be timed and scored according to how efficiently you can manage to collect all the bacteria currently bouncing around the level and enclosing them in the goal that's provided. To do this you can tap the screen, creating or des…

Riven: The Sequel to Myst Review

Review Cyan Worlds By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Riven: The Sequel to Myst Review

A word of caution in two-parts before we jump in to this review. Firstly, yes, this is a 1GB file and given the vague outcries of other weighty titles I thought I should point this out. Secondly, if you couldn't stand the puzzles in Myst you should probably turn back now; Riven only gets harder and more obtuse, so if the slow pacing was too much before, it'll absolutely break you in this release. If you're still with me, then congratulations, you have the opportunity of playing perhap…

Kosmo Spin Review

Review Simogo By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Kosmo Spin Review

By now veteran iDevice gamers have come to expect the odd arcade title (or three or four or a dozen) that offers little more than a simple gameplay concept to tide them over during spare moments of the day. This isn't exactly a bad thing given that you're playing on a mobile device, but even when you're only eating snacks it's easy to fill yourself up. Kosmo Spin by Simogo Handelsbolag fits in to the snack-sized arcade category, though its immensely charming style and challenge based q…

Stoopid Sandwich Review

Review NoodlFroot By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Stoopid Sandwich Review

UPDATE: A recent update has added Game Center support, giving Stoopid Sandwich a bit more shelf-life as you compete against others around the world for high scores and as such this eliminates one of the concerns highlighted below. Stoopid Sandwich by London-based developers NoodlFroot started out as more of a prototype for another concept they're working on, but after having so much fun with something this simple they decided to share it with the world. And I have to say I'm glad they…
