WordSearch Rush Review

Review We Are Colin By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
WordSearch Rush Review

It's not surprising how many word-search games are on the App Store thanks to it being a fairly well known and easy to implement puzzle for a touch device. However plenty of them suffer from either having huge grids that are a pain to read or lack any real fun game element. WordSearch Rush by We Are Colin tries to solve both of these problems while remaining true to the puzzle's more educational purposes. WordSearch uses 7x7 (and the occasional 8x8) to keep things easy to read without…

Durak Review

Review Lost Token Software LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Durak Review

Card games are often hard to represent accurately in video games. Sure, the rules are easy enough to replicate, but it's so hard to replace the feel of playing a game with real cards and real people. Durak by Lost Token does a great job of making a virtual card game feel realistic and even gives you the ability to play with real opponents. For those that aren't aware of the game, Durak is a card shedding style of play that uses trick-taking rules to establish who wins or loses a round…

Warheads Review

Review Pangea Software, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Warheads Review

One of the great things about the App Store is seeing how classic arcade games are revived and reinterpreted for a new audience.  Warheads is the latest release from Pangea Software and attempts to update the seminal arcade game Missile Command. Jumping into the game couldn't be easier and requires a quick tap and a quick wit to survive each successive wave sent to wipe you out. The basic screen layout is the same as the original, with three missile lanchers set amongst objects y…

Boom It Up! Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 10 months ago
Boom It Up! Review

Boom It Up! is a quick reflex arcade game where players must launch a cannon ball as high into the air as possible, much like the barrel shooting mini-games from the Donkey Kong Country series on the Super Nintendo. Obscure references aside, players must launch their cannon ball from one platform to another and blast as high as possible with the limited amount of balls. Players shoot their cannon balls by tapping on the screen and must time their shots correctly or risk crashing to th…

Onslaught from Space Review

Review Scatter Circuit By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 10 months ago
Onslaught from Space Review

While most iPhone games tend to get an edge on the competition by taking steps forward in regards to gameplay and presentation, Onslaught From Space takes steps backwards with its retro 80s arcade and early 3D console style presentation. Your goal is to survive waves of incoming enemies for as long as possible and various weapon power-ups will help you to do so. Players must destroy all incoming spaceships and other objects by adjusting and tilting their iPod to aim and tapping the sc…

Bix Review

Review Padadaz By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 11 months ago
Bix Review

Bix by Padadaz is a great new arcade game that fuses the classic gameplay from Taito's Qix with more modern gameplay adaptions from Jezzball and KBounce. For those who don't know these iconic games, Bix is an arcade game that has you racing to claim screen's space without being hit by balls bouncing around the increasingly smaller play area. Your "tracer" is controlled by simple directional swipes to indicate which direction it should draw a line and subsequently create a box. Lives a…

Review Bootant LLC By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 11 months ago
U-Boot Plus Review

uBoot is an arcade game that throws players in the deep end, literally.

Ladybug Dreams Review

Review Killer Robots By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 11 months ago
Ladybug Dreams Review

Some of the best games in the 90s on consoles were generally fairly simple arcade-style games, opting to challenge players to learn a game on their terms and mastering it (at least until you put down the controller in frustration). Ladybug Dreams by Killer Robots brings back the style of design that forces you to wrangle with the game before it gets fun. Your ladybug (named Chu) is placed in a Pac-man-esque set of mazes and is forced to collect all the aphids lying around. Controlling…

GHOSTS'N GOBLINS GOLD KNIGHTS Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 11 months ago
GHOSTS'N GOBLINS GOLD KNIGHTS Review

It's fairly common for older "classic" games to get a port on the iPhone, whether it be as an emulated copy, a stylized clone, or a complete overhaul. Ghosts'n Goblins Gold Knights by CAPCOM attempts to bring the classic arcade game to the iPhone while mashing modern styles together. Once you're in the game you'll find yourself presented with the familiar platform controls of a virtual d-pad on the left and attack/jump buttons on the right. They do take up a considerable amount of scr…
