Shantae: Risky's Revenge Review

Shantae: Risky's Revenge Review

Shantae is a half genie. She finds herself on a quest to travel all over Sequin Land to stop the evil pirate wench Risky Boots, who has stolen a magic lamp capable of terrible power. Predictability aside, what we have here is an old school platformer as you travel left or right from screen to screen, collecting items, defeating enemies, and engaging in boss encounters. Platformer fans should feel right at home. The game uses an on screen joystick and buttons. Shantae can move left or…

Princess Punt Review

What if a developer was to take angry birds, and fashion an RPG system around the addictive, flinging gameplay? What is the RPG system incorporated included shades of unique classes such as fighters, lancers, archers, and wizards, that all had their unique methods of attack? What if each level had multiple difficulty settings that unlocked more interesting loot and experience, and what if these special items recovered could be leveled up and mastered for more damage? Sounding good? Wel…

Crazy Escape Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Crazy Escape Review

Wolves like to eat sheep. From folk tales to Warner Bros. Cartoons, this has been popularized through western culture. One thing that has been omitted from these tales however is the Penguins that drive up in jeeps to rescue the sheep from their lupine oppressors. That is the basis of Crazy Escape. You control these jeep driving penguins. Can you rescue the sheep, capture all three stars and do so while using as little petrol as possible? It can certainly be a challenge. Gameplay is a…

Roll in the Hole Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Roll in the Hole Review

When you start playing a game titled Roll in the Hole, you expect two things. Rolling, and a hole to roll into. You'll be happy to know that this game delivers on both those fronts. You play Popo the fat Panda. A mean Gorilla has stolen all your ice cream and you must chase him down the only way you can, by rolling into oblivion. You would think that a game based around rolling would revolve around tilt controls, but funnily enough, Roll in the Hole uses the touch screen. The screen i…

RunDaLine - featuring the most athletic skunk on earth Review

Why would a skunk need to run away from anything? If anything, cartoons have taught us that everyone runs away from skunks, especially cats who walk under wet paint. Ah well, in Rundaline, you control the running skunk Pancho. He needs to make it to the finish line, collecting all the coins he can, while avoiding all the obstacles that will stop him in his tracks. Now in most runners you tap the screen to jump. Rundaline is a little different. In this game, you control the terrain its…

HighFlyer DeathDefyer (i4) Review

Barring those who have a dreaded fear of heights I'm sure a lot of people dream of being able to fly.

HighFlyer DeathDefyer by Game Mechanic Studios is all about an explorer living in a world thrown high in to the sky; where free-falling means you can make a living claiming remnants of Earth's past.

Slam Dunk King Review

Review PikPok By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Slam Dunk King Review

As freemium games become more and more popular as a monetary system for apps, the focus of a review no longer rests on whether or not a game is worth a player's money, but more along the lines of is it fun enough to pay to unlock additional content, and are there others ways to progress in game. Slam Dunk King is a high score arcade game based on swiping controls. It's more than a little reminiscent of Fruit Ninja in how a simple idea can be both a joy to play and addictive. The game…

Tiny Heroes Review

Review Simutronics Corp By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Tiny Heroes Review

Tower defense games are a dime a dozen these days. With that being the case it's often hard to be excited about yet another addition to the genre. Tiny Heroes is not the first TD game to switch the dynamic around, putting you in the shoes of the villains and having you defeat incoming heroes, but it presents itself with enough solid gameplay and charm to have a fighting chance. Each level begins with a new dungeon resting between the waves of heroes and your treasure room. Before the…

Monsters Ate My Condo Review

Review [adult swim] By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Monsters Ate My Condo Review

How does Adult Swim do it? The last thing a reviewer expects is for the late night comedy viewing block of a dedicated cartoon cable channel to constantly hit it out of the park with such original and amusing iPhone game releases. Monsters ate my Condo continues this trend with being an all out assault on the senses hiding a pretty solid tower stacking puzzle game underneath. The game operates around a condo and monsters. Two monsters out of four surround a condo that has floors const…

Puddle Puzzles Review

Review ChaosTrend Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Puddle Puzzles Review

The cute purple blobby thing-a-ma-jig named Puddles finds herself in a series of lab experiments. What they are trying to test is beyond me but the point is that as the player you need to guide Puddles through a series of rooms, eating gems, floating on water, avoiding spikes, and reaching the portal. The game has two methods of leading Puddles to safety. On land, rotating the iPhone will roll Puddles in that direction or make her fall to a new surface. Rotating also changes the water…

SPY mouse Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 12 months ago
SPY mouse Review

Sometimes it's easy to forget that Firemint, the developers of the Real Racing series for iOS have another game they're rather famous for - a little line-drawing App called Flight Control. While racing has its fans, Flight Control made perfect use of the touch-screen interface to create a fun game based around the pressures of multitasking. So what if Firemint decided to boil the concept down in to something a bit more bite-sized? What if you were rewarded for your puzzle solving skil…

House of Mice Review

Review Delusion Studio Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
House of Mice Review

Have you ever wondered what M.A.D. Cat from Inspector Gadget does in his spare time? Other than being petted by Dr. Claw that is. It seems he gets up to trouble with the local mice who have come to the conclusion that they can defeat their feline foe by rolling up and exploding like miniature bombs. In House of Mice by Delusion Studio you'll need to direct these furry packages of doom towards the smug cat that taunts them from afar. Ok, so it's not actually M.A.D. Cat, but more of a c…

To-Fu: The Trials of Chi Review

Review HotGen Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
To-Fu: The Trials of Chi Review

Part physics platformer, part puzzle, all tofu - To-Fu: The Trials of Chi by HotGen is only as hard as you want it to be, making this the perfect distraction for almost any gamer. Your basic goal is simple - make your way to the fortune cookie by throwing yourself around the level while sticking, sliding and bouncing off the various surfaces around you. This, however, short-changes you of the challenge of flinging To-Fu around the level, avoiding traps while collecting 'chi' or attemp…
