DEAD RISING MOBILE Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
DEAD RISING MOBILE Review

When you're stuck in a mall, surrounded by zombies and you're left with a mysterious letter that warns you of 15 super zombies responsible for the mess, then you're probably playing out another day in the life of Frank West, freelance journalist extraordinaire. DEAD RISING MOBILE by CAPCOM attempts to boil down the manic fun of its bigger console brother, but its shortcomings become apparent early on and it never manages to switch gears despite some interesting social features. Taking…

Red Nova Review

Red Nova Review

It's surprisingly rare to find a title on the App Store that seriously considers the limitations of using a small touch screen, but Red Nova by Colin Walsh is amongst that rare breed and after a short while you'll be taking on alien hordes like the hero you're meant to be. The controls of your prototype fighter take some getting used to, especially if you've played one too many twin-stick shooters, and instead of simply zipping around and firing in all directions you'll have to conten…

Jenga Review

Review NaturalMotion By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Jenga Review

I just have to ask this... I mean, how bored was the person who came up with Jenga? Don't get me wrong, I've had some fun times with friends playing the game, but at what point did someone craft 54 wooden blocks, stack them up and say 'Yup, that's a game!'? At any rate, you can dispense with the messy, noisy and tedious creation of the Jenga tower thanks to NaturalMotion's modern 3D update to this party-game favorite. One of the tricks of Jenga is knowing just which block to go for an…

A Moon For The Sky Review

Review Bulkypix By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
A Moon For The Sky Review

A Moon For The Sky by Bulkypix and Egg Ball follows in the wake of previous titles from the publisher like Pix'n Love Rush as a simple, yet amazingly refreshing arcade title that seems far more addictive than it has any right to be. I don't mean the last statement to be an insult as this basic game oozes enough charm to make coming back for more almost reflexive and when all you're doing is bouncing a moon on a trampoline it's hard to pinpoint why you keep hitting 'continue'. The 'moo…

Chop Chop Caveman Review

Review Gamerizon By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Chop Chop Caveman Review

Developer Gamerizon isn't above trying out new ideas, or more specifically, attempting to pair classic and simple games with clever and intuitive controls designed almost exclusively with iDevices in mind. So, it's great to see Gamerizon returning to 2D platforming once again with Chop Chop Caveman and instead of flipping out in a non-stop brawl like in Chop Chop Ninja, you'll need to defeat and consume various animals while solving relatively simple physics puzzles in the process. Ho…

Mr. Falling Review

Review OF-Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Mr. Falling Review

After playing a games like .AaAaAA!!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity. on my PC, I've been fascinated by games that decide to play around with that sense of vertigo and speed. Mr. Falling by UwinGame is the 3D antithesis to games like Doodle Jump and you'll have to prove your skill at surviving a deadly fall for as long as possible with one of three available cats. Each cat represents a different difficulty level, adding more speed and hazards to avoid on your trip down, however th…

Blazing Arc - Magical Shooting Game Review

Review Russ Kumro By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Blazing Arc - Magical Shooting Game Review

It's not easy being a solo, independent developer in this wild world full of heavy hitters and merely putting together a coherent product can be a challenge all on its own. Blazing Arc - Magical Shooting Game by Russ Kumro is the latest release from the developer of Stackster and in this horizontal shooter you'll help 'Blaze' as she travels through time to find out about her mysterious mother. To move around players need only touch and swipe the screen. Doing so will position Blaze di…

Lightning Fighter Review

Review Uwan Studio By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Lightning Fighter Review

It's hard to fight for individual attention with so many exciting and action-packed shoot'em-ups to choose from on the App Store, but Lightning Fighter by Uwan Studio is definitely trying to make its voice heard. Releasing a shmup so close on the heels of a major release from a developer like CAVE makes this even riskier, but Lightning Fighter is certainly no slouch as far as shmups go. The game features an interesting control system that switches between tilt and touch controls on-th…

SPLATTERHOUSE Review

SPLATTERHOUSE Review

Back in the day when Arcades weren't just a collection of networked racing titles, light gun shooters or ticket machines, I had a bit of a crush for SPLATTERHOUSE. I don't mean to say I loved the game, but at the time I loved what it represented: the gritty, gory side of gaming. And now  Namco Networks America have resurrected this classic and incredibly difficult beat'em-up. Though to be fair this difficulty comes from the controls instead of the game itself, though three diffic…

SKIP SD Review

Review Life-Giving By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
SKIP SD Review

SKIP SD by Life-Giving studios places you behind the controls of an elite fighter in the Special 'Kaizen' Infiltration Platoon (SKIP for short) as you attempt to complete your mission in the post-World War 3 Earth of 2087. Or so I've had to garner from the App Store description as the game unceremoniously flings you in to a tunnel with little more than the title of the area you're in. This may be a small oversight, but it's something of a running theme with SKIP SD as you're left wond…


Pee Monkey Plant Bloom Review

Review Happylatte By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Pee Monkey Plant Bloom Review

There's just no getting around it... things are going to be said and I'm in the unfortunate position of having to say them, but it's hard not to feel a little bit weird when you start talking about Pee Monkey Plant Bloom by happylatte. I mean, the name says it all really; you'll need to pee on plants with a monkey to help the garden to grow. The gameplay itself is not unlike that of games like Angry Birds and players have a limited amount of... 'shots'... to make the plants bloom. Dra…

Chrominance Review

Review Andrea Mazzini By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Chrominance Review

Chrominance by Andrea Mazzini and EFlat Games challenges players to mix their skills at timing and combining colors to score it large in this strange physics based arcade title. Orbs of paint will make their way on to the screen at regular intervals, but should they collide with another orb they'll combine and splatter over the background. To score you'll need to make sure this combination lands on the correctly colored background by swiping them around the screen and if you're playin…

Stackster - Retro Brick Breaking Action is Back Review

Review Russ Kumro By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Stackster - Retro Brick Breaking Action is Back Review

It's no surprise that every now and then developers like to cast a line out to the past to see if they can't revive or reshape games that shaped the industry as we know it know, BIT.TRIP BEAT is just one such title. 'Stackster - Retro Brick Breaking Action is Back' by Russ Kumro makes no bones about its sources and while it doesn't try to reinvent the wheel, it adds enough of a spin to this classic genre to help it to fit in with modern tastes. The game is situated in a vertical orien…

Baseball Superstars® 2011 Pro Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Baseball Superstars® 2011 Pro Review

Sometimes it can be lonely at the top, but the Baseball Superstars® series from GAMEVIL has earned its position of dominance thanks to its in-depth and detailed baseball gameplay that remains lighthearted despite the intense management required to succeed. Their third outing (BS2011) is no less of a beast in terms of content, but additional refinements to the gameplay show that GAMEVIL aren't interested in resting on their laurels. The controls for BS2011 haven't seen much of a ch…
