Review Duello By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years ago
iSlash Review

You've ninja'd fruit, you've samurai'd vegetables and more than likely you've cut some rope, but in iSlash by Duello Games you'll need to slash, chop and shave shapes down to impossible sizes to meet the game's exacting requirements. Well not entirely impossible, but when you reach the later stages you'll be thankful that the game provides an immediate outlet for stress - it's sort of like a bizarre two-fer-one deal. In each of the game's already blooming set of levels you'll need to…

Sushi Boy Review

Sushi Boy Review

Sushi Boy by wefiends is perhaps one of the best examples of how casual games can turn a simple idea in to something just short of an instant classic. As Sushi Boy your task is to catch all the sushi as it drops from the sky, however once you've mastered the basics you'll be able to unlock companions, outfits and new locations to enhance your gameplay. Players can choose between touch or tilt controls to shift around the screen and tilting quickly or double-tapping will perform a quic…

Beast Boxing 3D - Monster Fighting Action! Review

Beast Boxing 3D - Monster Fighting Action! Review

Where games like Super KO Boxing went for a classic Punch-Out! style for their arcade boxing gameplay, Beast Boxing 3D by Goodhustle Studios tries to up the ante by sticking with touch controls and a 3D design that's clever and gorgeous to watch in action. Jumping in to Beast Boxing couldn't be more intuitive and players have access to three basic punch types thanks to tapping and swiping the screen. Quick jabs only require a tap, but hooks and uppercuts are triggered by swiping acros…

Doug Brown Review

Doug Brown Review

If your day just isn't full of enough mini-games and you're not a fan of Noir-style movies or hard-boiled detective stories, then Doug Brown by Avallon Alliance might provide you with a brief moment of fun. For some reason best left unasked, your day as a detective has taken a turn for the interesting and you are faced with a series of odd-ball mini-games connected by a loose narrative string to justify the 30 seconds or less it takes to complete each one. These games range from strai…


Font Monsters Review

Review Muu Muu Co.,Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Font Monsters Review

If someone told me before today that I'd be playing and enjoying a game about shooting creatures made out of letters and symbols, I'd probably look at them a bit funny and consider them a bit nutty. Then again, I did enjoy a game about shooting zombie cookies with a milk gun that fires when you type words, so perhaps Font Monsters by Muu Muu isn't that crazy after all. In short all you have to do is to identify what letters and symbols the creature you're facing is made of and correct…

Vikings Row! Review

Review iwin, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Vikings Row! Review

The journey to Valhalla is not an easy one, but if it was easy then these Vikings probably wouldn't have bothered in the first place. 'Vikings Row!' by I-play is a deceptively simple game of rowing your way through deadly and often other-worldly rivers to collect riches and demonstrate your courage to the Valkyrie guarding the way. Players will have to literally row their way through the hazard-filled channels by swiping their fingers on the screen to simulate a rowing action. Dependi…

Be2 - Escape from Pingland Review

Review Kismik By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Be2 - Escape from Pingland Review

Be2 is a pixel and he's sick of being battered back and forth like a ball on a court for the rest of his electronic life. In 'Be2 - Escape from Pongland' by Kismik, you'll need to manipulate the acceleration of this pixel to navigate him through dastardly mazes and games he was never intended to be in as he quests for freedom from the video game world. In order to get Be2 around these various environments you'll need to impart added momentum to his movement as he constantly glides or…

Pochi in Space Review

Review CodePlay Studios, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Pochi in Space Review

Pochi in Space by CodePlay Studios is an odd little arcade title and despite its somewhat simple gameplay of avoiding incoming objects, it remains a strangely addictive title to enjoy. It seems odd that there aren't any alternative controls, however the default system of tilting to move left and right and touching the screen to activate your 'Pochi' powers gets the job done without much fuss. There are two different basic games to choose from, either playing through an endless Explora…

Stoneship  Review

Review Cyan Worlds By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Stoneship  Review

As the developer Cyan Worlds puts it, Stoneship, the latest game from the people who brought us the gaming classic Myst, is a lighthearted new puzzle title that seems almost at odds with their previous serious adventuring style. However, should you skip out on playing Stoneship out of some odd form of elitism, you'd be doing yourself a disservice. For a game that revolves around turn-based strategic exploration to optimize your pirating operations and defend it from against fellow pir…

Van Pershing Review

Review ECO Pawel Jarosz By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Van Pershing Review

Van Pershing by The Oak Team is probably best described as yet another take on the Zombieville USA / Inkvaders style of horizontal beat'em up action. Van Pershing (the non-union ethnic alternative to Van Helsing) is out to thwart 'generic evil' of 'evil place' and as you progress you'll not only pack heavy amounts of firepower in the form of weapons, but also a few magical abilities to turn the tide. The controls will be familiar for those who have played these games before, with butt…

Shadow Runner Review

Review Wode Mobile By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Shadow Runner Review

If N+ and Braid made babies and one of them was an arcade game, it might look and play a little like Shadow Runner by Wode Mobile. All you have to do is make it to the exit, but there's a catch - copies of yourself are constantly spawning and should you touch one before the exit opens it's game over. Shadow Runner pulls this off with absolutely minimalistic controls, with buttons to move left and right and a jump. Players can wall jump and flip over obstacles if they wish and a small…

Neuroshima Hex Review

Review Big Daddy's Creations By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Neuroshima Hex Review

I'm not in to the table-top RPG scene, though several of my friends do tell me that Neuroshima is an interesting game to say the least. Interesting enough to be adapted in to a board-game with an eventual translation in to English and players can forgo physical pieces thanks to its release on to the App Store, giving you the ability to jump in to this title anywhere you like. As the title suggests, the game is played out on a hexagonal board, with pieces being placed in order to gain…

Blaze: Fire Puzzle Review

Review Handmark, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Blaze: Fire Puzzle Review

As unique experiences go, I'd have to say that 'Blaze: Fire Puzzle' definitely sits on a lonely pedestal with a handful of games like Zen Bound as the kind of puzzle title you gravitate towards not for the difficulty, but for the sheer experience of it. And it's not without reason that I invoke Zen Bound as a comparison for this title by developer Handmark as its relaxed style will be immediately familiar to those who have spent some time painting 3D shapes with rope. Your goal is to…

Axe in Face Review

Review Blue Carrot Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Axe in Face Review

In Blue Carrot Games' first title for the App Store, 'Axe in Face - Defense of the Daffodils', you'll play the role of a viking who's very VERY protective of his daffodils. To crush his daffodils is to invoke his wrath and you don't want to mess with a viking that can throw a flaming axe while calling on the power of the gods. In each of the game's 32 currently available levels you'll need to protect your field while burning, freezing, shocking or lopping off heads from other invading…

Buganoids Review

Review Backflip Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Buganoids Review

If Julian Farrior, CEO of Backflip Studios is to be believed (and why wouldn't we!), Buganoids is the last of the companies free titles for the Summer, but what a great title it is! Just about everything oozes with a classic arcade feel, from the simple sprite art of the game's characters to the cabinet style buttons themselves; for old arcade fans this is nostalgia without the need to throw quarters/tokens down a slot. In each of the game's levels your character finds himself maroone…
