Bix Review

Review Padadaz By Andrew Nesvadba, 8 years, 9 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, 8 years, 9 months ago
U-Boot Plus Review

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

You must go as far as possible in order to max out your highscore and progress onto the next level. The controls differ based on which of the three difficulties you play on. In the easiest mode, players must move their ship up and down by tilting t…

Ladybug Dreams Review

Review Killer Robots By Andrew Nesvadba, 8 years, 9 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 Co., Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 8 years, 9 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…

2XL Fleet Defense puts you in the middle of an international crisis fuelled by illegal weapons trading as you must protect a large allied aircraft carrier from incoming enemy attacks.

Skullpogo is a quirky and unique action game where you vanquish evil zombies, bats and vampire piggies using your ultimate weapon; a pogo stick.

3D SFCave Review

Review Yohei Iwasaki By Andrew Nesvadba, 8 years, 11 months ago
3D SFCave Review

Sunflat Games have been making their name releasing miniature games on the iPhone, most notably with their range of games in the Papi franchise. 3D SFCave is their first departure from the Papi games on the iPhone and while it may tickle the old-school bone of some gamers, it may be a little too spartan for everyone to enjoy. 3D SFCave is another high-score arcade game that comes in several variations varying from changing the controls to changing the challenge you face. Ultimately th…

Backbreaker Football Review

Review NaturalMotion By Andrew Nesvadba, 8 years, 12 months ago
Backbreaker Football Review

Visceral thumps, jukes, spins and show-boating. That's what Backbreaker Football by NaturalMotion is all about. Each tackle you take will make you wince and each triumphant touchdown will have you laughing at your opponents. For a game that takes a single aspect of a national sport like NFL, it manages to be - dare I say it - addictive for everyone to play. Backbreaker has turned running the ball for a touchdown into an arcade sport and the controls couldn't be simpler. Around the low…

Bowman Defense Review

Bowman Defense Review

Bowman Defense by Triniti Interactive is yet another addition to the ranks of the archery-style arcade games littering the iPhone and like so many other successful games it has risen to prominence thanks to the liberal use of "creative license" and a fairly generic style of gameplay. The copy-cat nature of so many games on the iPhone is usually best represented by the lack of experimentation in the controls where the expectation is "if you've learned how to play game X then you'll hav…

Meteor Blitz Review

Meteor Blitz Review

It's nice to see a successful iPhone game at least nod to its predecessors. Alley Labs is bold enough to produce a clone of the successful Stardust series for the iPhone and even acknowledge this on their app store page, but it's undeniable that they've made Meteor Blitz a great game for the iPhone. Blitz is an evolution the classic Asteroid arcade game using dual virtual-analogue sticks to control your movement and direction of firing. The aim is to clear the screen of as many enemie…
