Tap Master I Review

Tap Master I Review

When a developer from Revoc Technologies contacted us about Tap Master I, he was adamant that this game, as simple as it may seem, was extremely addictive. Skeptical as I was of the usual PR pitch, he wasn't kidding; there's something bizarrely addictive about trying to out-do yourself and others at even simple tasks. Tap Master I packs five different 'tap' themed games that are quick and easy to play, but getting that top score isn't easy. It's hard to call these games, but thanks to…

Fastar! Review

Review Cat in a Box Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Fastar! Review

If you're a fan of RPGs and especially action RPGs then there's no more to say about Fastar! than to go and check it out now. For everyone else that still needs convincing, Fastar! by Cat in a Box Games is a side-scrolling genre parody of RPG and action titles and from the very moment you start playing you're in for a treat. Like so many RPGs you're placed in control of an anonymous slayer-of-things with a suitably oversized weapon in tow on a quest to go as far right as possible. The…

Chopper 2 Review

Review Majic Jungle Software By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Chopper 2 Review

Way back in the 'way back when' the Apple II was host to a neat side-scrolling action title called Choplifter. Over two years ago, this genre saw a revival on the App Store thanks to the Chopper series and now, after a long wait, fans of the original can get their hands on this juicy and surprisingly featured sequel for their iDevice of choice. The basic controls are incredibly simple and intuitive to learn, requiring tilt-based movement to direct your helicopter with precision around…

Castaway Jelly Review

Review Colorplay Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Castaway Jelly Review

It's not often you get a chance to navigate coral mazes as a jellyfish and Colorplay Games have decided to fill this niche hole with 'Castaway Jelly'. In this simple game you must navigate various ocean hazards in order to rescue your friends and ultimately make your way home. Over the course of 30 levels you'll need to avoid natural hazards including sharp coral, balloon fish and on several occasions even apparently harmless bubbles. The game boasts the use of intuitive controls, but…

Doodle God™ Review

Review JoyBits Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Doodle God™ Review

In a way, it's hard to call Doodle God a game. No wait, before you lynch me hear me out: All you do is click and combine things without a story to guide you, only a loose motivation to 'find them all'... So then why is it so darn addictive? Doodle God by JoyBits goes beyond its simple gameplay by cleverly mapping out connections that are logical and at times amusing to discover, making this an addictive and eventually a complex time waster. While I've already discussed the basic premi…

Juggle! Review

Review Denki By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Juggle! Review

It's been shown time and again, but sometimes the simplest of ideas can be the most powerful. Juggle! by Denki has stripped back the old brick-and-paddle gameplay (think Arcanoid) to it's basic level, bouncing objects - often many at a time - off a tiny moveable paddle. Juggle! is played in a vertical orientation, with a relatively small paddle that quickly moves across the bottom of the screen at the lightest touch. At first this feels excessive and awkward, but additional balls cont…

Qwak Review

Review Mr Qwak Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Qwak Review

As an Amiga owner, I felt terribly ashamed to admit to developer Jamie Woodhouse that I'd never had a chance to play his game Qwak when it was released in 1993. However, as a title that was released by Team 17 in a budget bundle it was never given the chance it truly deserved. Thankfully, Qwak is now out on the App Store and after over 20 years this title has finally found a place it can shine. Unlike most puzzle platformers, Qwak features fast paced gameplay that rewards quick thinki…

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Review

Review Freeverse, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Review

Seth Grahame-Smith's hit 'mashup' of Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice' and the zombie mythos has been a huge success and almost a year later Freeverse have succeeded in adapting this tale to the App Store as an action-packed side-scrolling beat'em up.  Players will get to control the rough and sarcastic Elizabeth as she employs her deadly arts against the zombie plague that has continued to blight the countryside. An analogue stick is used for movement, while basic attacks can…

Spinzizzle Review

Review PressOK Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Spinzizzle Review

The name 'Spinzizzle' almost says it all for this latest release by PressOK Entertainment. With 21 levels of difficulty to play through, this addictive and fun three-match puzzler will have you spinning various boards back and forth to create the best combinations possible. Each level of the game uses a variety of small patterned boards that you can spin in order to shift the position of each orb on the field. Matching three or more similar orbs will lock them in to place and will wai…

Jump O'Clock Review

Review Glu Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Jump O'Clock Review

Jump o'Clock by Glu is a steam-punk inspired endless vertical jumper that's simply stunning to watch and with several unlockable challenges it's not hard to keep busy with this little App. Climbing the clockwork tower is easy enough as touching the screen will springboard your robot companion (LE0) off his current surface towards a safe platform. The platforms themselves are a collection of randomly generated cogs, some with dangerous surfaces, however you can use the spinning momentu…

Review IRIX PTY LTD By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Tiny Cars Review

LilRacerz by Blast One brings the R.C. Pro-Am style of racing to the iPhone with 17 fast paced and fun filled tracks and four competitive leagues to complete. Racing couldn't be simpler and instead of opting for analogue or tilt based controls, Blast One have stuck to virtual buttons to replicate the classic racing style that brought us greats like Rock'n'Roll Racing. Two buttons provide controls to turn left and right and holding down will put your vehicle in to semi-controlled drift…

Doodle Find™ Review

Review KLICKTOCK By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Doodle Find™ Review

If you hadn't already noticed, 'Doodle' has been a category located at the top of the App Store game page for a while now and it's simply incredible to think about just how popular a graphical style can get to warrant such a prime location. Doodle Find by KLICKTOCK seems at first like a minor graphical change from their previous title Super Search 60, but a host of fixes and gameplay updates have accompanied their new game, making this an incredible addictive item-search title. Once y…

Review Tactile Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Crazy Test - Simple, Addictive, Fun! Review

Crazy Test by Tactile Entertainment tries its hand at micro-games, attempting to out-crazy the forerunner of this new style of gaming, WarioWare. Despite its overwhelming obsession with cats, Crazy Test is a madcap title that's hard not to smile at while playing - besides, how often do you get to hit a lazy panda with a slingshot? In true micro-game style, each game uses a different set of controls, varying from shaking the iPhone to make a bottle of soda explode to erasing thought bu…

Atlantis - Legend of the Mermaids Review

Review Hiray Information By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Atlantis - Legend of the Mermaids Review

Saving mermaids from terrible fish-men from Atlantis sounds like a fairly typical motivation for any action hero to pick up his weapon and sally-forth. But 'Atlantis - Legend of the Mermaids' isn't your typical beat'em-up from developer Hiray Information and while your everyday-joe may be on a heroic quest, his motivations aren't entirely pure and you'll have to wade through fish-guts and other unmentionables on your epic journey. Atlantis uses twin-stick shooter controls to move arou…

Hamster Panic Review

Review afzainizam zahari By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Hamster Panic Review

Hamsters are undoubtedly cute and fun pets to own as long as you're not allergic to them, but they can be hungry little devils that will eat themselves sick (or worse) if you're not careful. Hamster Panic places you in charge of two hamsters, one full to the brim, the other in desperate need of a fill. A delicate balance needs to be struck between your cute furball companions, but with obstacles like hot slices of toast and a house-cat on the prowl making things even more difficult you…
