Crimson Gem Saga Review

Crimson Gem Saga Review

In a move I would love to see followed by other major RPG developers, Atlus' JRPG title 'Crimson Gem Saga' has found its way on to the App Store and fans of the genre will dive right in and feel at home with its simple, classic style.  Converting a title to the iPhone isn't always a smooth process and sometimes that controls are likely to suffer in the transition and Crimson Gem Saga is no different in this regard. Sticking with the 'fixed' control is heartily recommended and pla…

Chopper 2 Review

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…

Whacksy Taxi Review

Review Mindstorm Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Whacksy Taxi Review

Whacksy Taxi by Mindstorm Studios is a bogglingly fun title for one simple reason: Who'd have thought that Outrun could become MORE of an Arcade game? In this endless-style racer you'll dodge, jump and fly over traffic on your whirlwind tour of the US, just try not to blow up while nudging cars from the rear. Your Taxi has free reign of three lanes on its high-speed rampage, with various cars, SUVs and trucks blocking your way. Tapping the controls on either side of the screen will ju…

Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 (US) Review

Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 (US) Review

The Pro Evolution Soccer series has garnered a lot of respect from some fans of the sport thanks mostly to its weighty and realistic feeling players that smoothly maneuver their way across the pitch with practiced skill. PES 2010 is Konami's first release of their popular franchise on the iPhone and fans can expect the same attention to detail present in its bigger console brothers. There are three control schemes to choose from, with a classic stick and two-button configuration commo…

HECTOR: Badge of Carnage Ep1 Review

Review Straandlooper By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
HECTOR: Badge of Carnage Ep1 Review

It's time to dim the lights down low in the old brain-box because 'HECTOR: Badge of Carnage Episode 1' by Straandlooper starts in the gutter and only gets lower. That isn't to say that being gross or immature can't be funny, but comparing this straight adventure game to the Leisure Suit series will give you a good indicator of where we're at. Set in the grimy, crime center of Britain, Detective Inspector Hector is like watching a young Joe Don Baker reprising his role as Mitchell for…

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Iron Man 2 Review

With Iron Man 2's promotional material reaching almost fever pitch in the lead up to the International release of the film, Gameloft have taken the opportunity to release their game early for those outside the US, providing a unique opportunity to check out this movie tie-in. The game is a fairly standard 3D action-brawler, mixing ranged and melee attacks for combo effects as you unlock them. An analogue stick is used for movement, with different combinations of tapping buttons and th…

Just about everyone has tried Skee-Ball growing up or on holidays visiting the local arcade, or even during a county show.

Ric Rococo: International Art Thief Review

Review Honeyslug Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 1 month ago
Ric Rococo: International Art Thief Review

Ric Rococo: International Art Thief isn't just a fun stealth, puzzle platformer, it's stylish; and why shouldn't it when it features some of the world's greatest artwork. This is developer Honeyslug's first entry on to the iPhone and it's a steal on the app store. Your objective is to claim as much of the artwork as possible by passing it to your sexy partner in crime through windows in a limited space of time. The controls have been minimized, with the major controls requiring you to…
