Fruit Ninja Review

Fruit Ninja Review

UPDATE: The constant support and updates from Halfbrick for Fruit Ninja has been nothing short of spectacular and over time this title has grown from a fun time waster to something you can share with friends either by sniping high scores or by challenging them directly online with a multiplayer mode. Furthermore the addition of an 'Arcade' mode pits players against the clock with powerful power-ups that will test their slicing skills. Fruit Ninja just gets better and better over time a…

ABOVE Review

Review Axolot By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years ago
ABOVE Review

Simplicity in game design can work. It's stating the obvious, but it's worth remembering when some games stack on feature after feature to make a basic idea look better. ABOVE by Axolot is another take on the endless vertical gameplay that combines simple gameplay with amazing artwork for a game that's sublime to enjoy. On your endless quest to the stars the only control you require is a simple tap and hold to jump. The longer you hold, the higher you jump. The uncomplicated scheme re…

WireWay Review

WireWay Review

Parachute Ninja delighted fans with its flicking off springs gameplay, but before the adventures of that stealthy ball, there was Wire Way. You play as Wiley, a cute little creature who is springing through levels to collect stars full of the precious energy Elan. When Wiley is attached to a spring, pulling back will prime him for take off. A guide will show your arc and an indicator of your distance, but it's not foolproof. The goal is to reach the UFO at the end of each level, but t…

Spirit Review

Review Marco Mazzoli By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 1 month ago
Spirit Review

The Geometry Wars look has been popular for many games. With its neon glows and burts of light, it's very visually pleasing. Spirit is a game that utilizes this visual style to put you in the shoes of a ghost wrangler. Yes, a ghost who wrangles, oh, and who doesn't wear shoes. You control this ghost with your finger, moving him elegantly around the screen. The sensitivity might be a problem for some people, but it is adjustable in the options, and the movement is very fluid regardless…

Tilt to Live Review

Review One Man Left By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 1 month ago
Tilt to Live Review

What happens when you take a tilting game like Starball and mix it with the powerups and enemy mayhem of the shmup genre? You get Tilt to Live, that's what! The screen is open to you. Tilt your ship to avoid the red balls while acquiring powerups to destory them, because if one hits you, it's game over. How long can you last? The tilt controls are phenomenal, and with a game like this, you'd hope they would be. The game starts you off with three powerups, an explosion, homing missles,…

Drift Sumi-e Review

Review Objectify LLC By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 2 months ago
Drift Sumi-e Review

Drawrace was an interesting concept. Draw a line with your finger around the track, and then see how fast your car gets to the finish line. Drift Sumi-e takes this mechanic and combines drifting cars with the elegance of Japanese sumi-e brush painting. Control is quite basic. When presented with the track, you draw a line from start to finish, avoiding the red trouble spots of the track. After you're finished, the game will go into race mode as your car drifts through the turns you la…

Arodius - A Dual-Stick Shooter with Plentiful Power-Ups Review

Review Mobile Force By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Arodius - A Dual-Stick Shooter with Plentiful Power-Ups Review

Sure, you could draw a parallel between the name Arodius and classic arcade shooter Gradius, but you'd be leading yourself astray. Despite some similarities to arcade shooters this latest release from Mobile Force is a great twin-stick shooter that's just begging to be your favorite. There are no strange controls to be had with Arodius as it sticks to the usual left-stick to move and right-stick to fire controls. A special weapon button appears at the bottom of the screen once you've…

Review Thruster By Luke Bartley, 4 years, 2 months ago
