Kumo Lumo Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
Kumo Lumo Review

The humble cloud is not often considered a harbinger of war or an avatar of suffering, but in the land of Kumo Lumo you play the almost perpetually smiling angel of death. Wait? No one else got that vibe? You mean it's just a cutesy light-action title with lots of grinding? No matter how you play it, Chillingo and Blitz Games' latest certainly has an interesting concept. The basic gameplay goes a little like this: The world below Kumo can be scrolled along with a swipe. Kumo himself c…

Let's Golf! 3 Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years ago
Let's Golf! 3 Review

The Let's Golf series from Gameloft has come to represent the casual, fun side of golfing - giving players some sense of realism paired with cute avatars, fantastic and unreal locations, and plenty of unlockables to make competitive play against friends all the more exciting. The third and latest iteration of the title doesn't change its basic tune all that much, pairing all the same elements together, but with one major twist - it's now a Freemium title. This seriously changes the fu…

Groove Coaster Review

Review TAITO Corporation By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Groove Coaster Review

The release of Space Invaders Infinity Gene by TAITO was a pleasant surprise a couple years ago, thanks mostly to its focus on 'evolution' - that is to say, the way in which the game modified based on how you played and the decisions made within the game itself. Much like Infinity Gene was a refreshing shift from the usual shoot'em-ups, Groove Coaster is a refreshing shift from the usual rhythm games. With that said, it's far from unfamiliar. The usual concept of tapping away to an el…

James Cameron's Avatar Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
James Cameron's Avatar Review

It's not surprising that a developer like Gameloft were brought in to bring to life James Cameron's Avatar for the iPhone. For a film that's already critically acclaimed, it was really only a matter of time for game tie-ins to appear. Gameloft takes care to approach this as something worth playing first and it shows in every aspect of the game itself. Avatar is an action platformer that practically smashes others in the genre. You take control through the use of virtual analogue stick…

Brain Challenge 2: Think Again! Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 11 months ago
Brain Challenge 2: Think Again! Review

After a quirky little game on the Nintendo DS challenged people to train their brains, a slew of games from developers tried to cash in on this "mini-game" craze. Brain Challenge 2: Think Again! (BC2) by Gameloft is yet another in the brain training genre, but thankfully it's also probably one of the best currently available. The mini-games are controlled by touching to confirm your selection from a range of possible answers. The buttons can be fairly small on some of the games, so la…
