Wraithborne Review

Review Alpha Dog Games By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 8 months ago
Wraithborne Review

There's something about story doled out through voice-over and still images that makes one not want to pay attention. Wraithborne is a 3D beat em up along the lines of God of War, and really, unlike that game, the exposition about your quests and actions presented here does not aid the gameplay, and it certainly does not add any context, drama, or sense of purpose. Walk around, smash monsters, upgrade your spells to use magic to smash monsters; that's the name of the game here. The ba…

Bucketz Review

Review PICNICHIPPO By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Bucketz Review

Sometimes you just have to admire the level of dedication given to certain aspects of a game. Often it's the attention to detail in the programming, wowing the player with intriguing answers to the question of “hmm, I wonder if I can do this”. In Bucketz however, the dedication is in the level of commitment to the personalities of the characters in game. Not only are they are an amusing lot of sentient buckets with distinct characteristics, but every single level contains i…

My Little Hero Review

Review NCSOFT By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
My Little Hero Review

I freely admit that as a child I had a stuffed toy that I brought to bed and while I knew he couldn't talk or interact with me, I liked to pretend he could at least understand me. The idea of loosing him would have been horrible, probably more so if it was the fabled Boogeyman that did it, so its no surprise to see the diminutive hero of My Little Hero braving the wilds to get him back. The game is simple to pick up and play, sporting a basic virtual stick and button setup to move aro…

Hank Hazard Review

Review Red Rocket Games, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Hank Hazard Review

It's hard to complain about 'yet another cute physics puzzler' when you're talking about a release from Chillingo, the publisher who is almost entirely responsible for the popularity of the concept. As such it's almost no surprise to note that Hank Hazard by Red Rocket Games fits this bill almost exclusively, however behind its cute exterior and 3-star item collection beats a fantastic little title that shares more with classics like Finger Physics than it does with Cut The Rope or Ang…

Bug Princess Review

Review CAVE CO.,LTD. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Bug Princess Review

Each release from CAVE on the iOS platform has been like a little treat, at least for those cashed up enough to own them thanks to their generally heavy hardware requirements and initial cost. This aside, their shoot'em-ups have been almost second to none on the App Store thanks to their slick visuals, frustrating (yet fair) difficulty, and incredibly varied mechanics. Their latest release, Bug Princess, takes us back in to the world of Mushihimesama, bringing back to life the game tha…

CHRONO TRIGGER Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
CHRONO TRIGGER Review

As time goes on the list of games considered 'all time favorites' for an individual gamer shuffles and changes - this is as much thanks to newer games as it is due to maturing as a gamer and reconsidering games from the past that may have once been ignored. Personally there are some titles that are seemingly intractable and amongst this list is the classic Super Nintendo RPG, Chrono Trigger. For those not directly familiar with the series, the game starts out much like any classic JRP…

Dark Meadow Review

Dark Meadow Review

Infinity Blade did something clever when it originally came out - and no I don't mean the graphics or oddly enough the gameplay itself, but rather the way in which it embraced the all too common trope of an amnesiac hero and spun it in to gold. While Dark Meadow by Phosphor Games Studio attempts to capture the engaging spirit of this new breed of RPG, it stumbles in key points, making it hard to truly fall in love with it. The main character is a mystery - essentially without identity…

Cado Review

Review ClearCut Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Cado Review

Sometimes it's nice to sit back and enjoy a simple game that just feels good to play. Cado by Clearcut games have taken the sketchbook motif that was insanely popular amongst iPhone games a couple years ago and have used it to make a well handled physics action game. Cado, a black ball needs to get to the portal in each stage. The way he travels there is through rotating the level left or right, causing him to roll around the various obstacles into safety. There is also a star to coll…

Mr. Falling Review

Review OF-Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Mr. Falling Review

After playing a games like .AaAaAA!!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity. on my PC, I've been fascinated by games that decide to play around with that sense of vertigo and speed. Mr. Falling by UwinGame is the 3D antithesis to games like Doodle Jump and you'll have to prove your skill at surviving a deadly fall for as long as possible with one of three available cats. Each cat represents a different difficulty level, adding more speed and hazards to avoid on your trip down, however th…

Mushihimesama BUG PANIC Review

Review CAVE CO.,LTD. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Mushihimesama BUG PANIC Review

PLEASE NOTE: Mushihimesama BUG PANIC is currently restricted to 3rd gen or higher iDevices; please ensure that your device is compatible before purchasing this title. Mushihimesama BUG PANIC by CAVE is the third in a series of titles following the adventures of Reco, a princess that has a telepathic link to the bugs of the Shinju Forest. In typical fashion for the developer, the first two titles were vertical shoot'em-ups, however this latest title takes a risk as it departs from the…

HellJump 2: New Adventures Review

Review SoftGames By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
HellJump 2: New Adventures Review

HellJump 2: New Adventures by SoftGames baffles me a little bit. While it's easy enough to merely say it's just another vertical jumping title, it wouldn't be taking in to account the rather beautiful visuals that have gone in to the game. But regardless of this, HellJump 2 shows no meaningful gameplay improvements over the original and that is what confuses me. For those not yet familiar with vertical jumping titles, all you need to do is keep bouncing your character as high as possi…

Pizza Boy Review

Review ACNE Play By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Pizza Boy Review

When faced with a new platformer for the App Store it's easy to become frustrated by the lack of attention to detail in the platforming controls. Pizza Boy by ACNE Play is that rare gem where the controls are so familiar and so smooth that it doesn't matter if it's a generic platformer, because it feels like coming home to a classic. Now I'm not talking about the physical act of controlling your character, but the feel of your character reacting to button presses as they jump, bounce…

Zombie Flick Review

Review Full Fat By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Zombie Flick Review

I harp on and on about how overused the zombie idea is, but it's only ever a matter of time before someone comes along and makes me remember why it's such a great concept. Flick Zombie by Full Fat places you in control of a poor survivor with nothing but a pile of junk to defend himself with against an increasingly aggressive horde of zombies. Players need only to flick the screen to throw dozens of truly weird and wonderful items at the horde in order to brutalize them with blunt for…

Monster Dash Review

Review Halfbrick Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Monster Dash Review

Vampires, Demons and Mummies, oh my! ... oh and Zombies. I guess that didn't work so well, but that's ok because unlike my silly intro Halfbrick studios have made the combination work in their latest outing on the App Store, 'Monster Dash'. The new game is ostensibly another horizontal runner and it's only slightly disappointing after the success of Fruit Ninja to see the studio playing it so safe. With that said, this runner isn't quite your average fare, with various monsters provid…

Vampire Saga: Pandora's Box Review

Review Alawar Entertainment, Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Vampire Saga: Pandora's Box Review

Vampire Saga: Pandora's Box by Alawar Entertainment is another attempt to fuse adventure elements with a basic hidden object puzzle system and while it may not have found the magic formula, it's interesting storyline will keep casual game fans busy until the end. It's great to see developers playing with the hidden object game (HOG) formula, however for those interested this title is of the 'clutter' variety, with each of the object-finding scenes being littered with objects. Thankful…
