Nano Panda Review

Review Unit9 By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Nano Panda Review

Don't be fooled by this game's cute exterior - the panda's may be cute and the panicked reactions of the evil atoms may be amusing, but Nano Panda by Unit9 isn't for the easily frustrated. While the idea of destroying atoms with cute pandas may sound like a recipe for heart-break, you'll soon wish you could fire a thousand pandas in to a thousand atoms just to get some satisfaction. It sounds like I'm raging out on the game, but let me be perfectly clear - the game is insanely addictiv…

Inspector Gadget's MAD Dash Review

Review XMG Studio Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Inspector Gadget's MAD Dash Review

As a child of the 80s I have long come to terms with the fact that I was raised by my TV to be an unabashed and rabid fan of some bizarre cartoon shows. Inspector Gadget is not the least of these and after years of not hearing the siren that signifies the start of an episode I was transported back in time thanks to 'M.A.D. Dash' by XMG Studio. If the title hasn't given it away, yes this is an 'endless' runner title, though to its credit the game has attempted to extend the value of th…

LawnMowerKids Review

Review Dohi Sweden By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 12 months ago
LawnMowerKids Review

Outside of a few exceptions it has been hard to find a lot of line-drawing titles to be impressive thanks in part to their similarity. LawnMowerKids is one of these exceptions and instead of shuffling vehicles around to various stations you'll need to manage three kids as they take on the task of keeping the neighborhood tidy, one lawn at a time. Each of the kids feature unique traits that will help you to mow the lawns more efficiently, with Nancy mowing the largest area at the slowe…

Cartoon Wars 2: Heroes Review

Review BLUE GNC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years ago
Cartoon Wars 2: Heroes Review

When you look back at BLUE GNC's previous Cartoon Wars and Cartoon Wars-Gunner titles, 'Cartoon Wars 2: Heroes' seems like the obvious next step. While the combination of beat'em-up and castle defense gameplay elements don't mesh terribly well, it's an interesting way to try and break up the monotony inherent in these sorts of games. Both the defense and beat'em-up sections will take some time to get used to and you'll need to prepare yourself for some fairly humiliating losses in ord…

Bull Running Review

Bull Running Review

To be honest, I'm surprised this hasn't been done before - although to be fair it probably has (feel free to point it out!) - but the Spanish festivity of the Running of the Bulls has practically screamed for an endless runner game based on the tradition. Bull Running by Twin Games fills this tiny hole and you'll run for your life as you're pursued by a raging bull while avoiding the many hazards left out in the street. Like a lot of runners all you have to do is tap to jump, but in t…

Cut the Rope Review

Cut the Rope Review

Gah! I seem to be experiencing a cute overload lately - my manliness (NB: may not actually be manly) is experiencing some withdrawals. Aww to heck with it... Om Nom is just too darn cute to get angry at and I blame Chillingo's latest game Cut the Rope for introducing his fierce cuddliness to me. Om Nom the candy-eating monster is hungry and you need to feed him, but while you're at it you may as well collect the stars littering each level as well. The basic gameplay is that of a physi…

Mr. Bill Review

Mr. Bill Review

Oh no! I can't believe that I never heard of this popular Saturday Night Sketch until recently and now my woeful lack of familiarity of 70-80's late-night sketch show trivia has let me down. Never mind, I'm sure I'll pick things up as I go as Mr.Bill from Capcom puts this pop culture creation in to his very own game. And in typical fashion things aren't looking so good for Mr.Bill and his family as they try to deal with the poor job climate by taking up Sluggo's offer of working at a…

MovieCat! - Movie Trivia Game Review

Review OtherWise Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
MovieCat! - Movie Trivia Game Review

It's not often that we delve in to a quiz-based game and it's not that they're not fun, it's just that they tend to be fairly lazy in their approach. MovieCat! by OtherWise Games shows that quiz games don't require an insane amount of knowledge on a particular subject to be fun and by using a pub video-quiz style with some clever categories it manages to remain fresh and exciting each time you play. Unfortunately the game is currently single-player only, but your aim is to get as far…

Axe in Face Review

Review Blue Carrot Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Axe in Face Review

In Blue Carrot Games' first title for the App Store, 'Axe in Face - Defense of the Daffodils', you'll play the role of a viking who's very VERY protective of his daffodils. To crush his daffodils is to invoke his wrath and you don't want to mess with a viking that can throw a flaming axe while calling on the power of the gods. In each of the game's 32 currently available levels you'll need to protect your field while burning, freezing, shocking or lopping off heads from other invading…

Fire Dragon Review

Review Joybean By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Fire Dragon Review

Fire Dragon by Joybean is an unfortunate arcade title where you must collect as much fruit as possible before various monsters or blocks of ice bludgeon you to death. It's a simple title and its controls match the simple theme with tilt controls to slide your dragon back and forth along his wooden platform and touching the screen to fire a burst of flame straight up. Various groups of fruit will drop from the sky and must be blasted to release them from their icy prison. If you're luc…


Ultrablast Review

Review RetroFlux By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Ultrablast Review

After the recent epilepsy-inducing madness of Dodonpachi Resurrection it's great to step things back a little in the shoot'em-up genre by slipping in to Ultrablast by RetroFlux. While it may not feature over the top bullet hell style gameplay, its storyline and dynamic game mechanics make this a different beast to approach. Players can choose between three basic movement controls either using touch, virtual stick or tilting to maneuver around the screen. Firing is automatic, however p…

Knight's Rush Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Knight's Rush Review

'Knight's Rush' is Chillingo's newest game and an attempt to dive in to the side-scrolling beat'em-up world for their Knight's Onrush franchise. While it's easy to compare the basic idea to something like Castle Crashers on the XBLA, Knight's Rush is decidedly a single-player experience and a unique one at that. As you begin each new world in the campaign mode you'll be stripped of your levels and must start anew, beating down enemies in the form of flesh and blood creatures and the o…

Dogfight 1951 Review

Review Treehouse Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Dogfight 1951 Review

For a long time, developers just couldn't get enough of the World War 1 and 2 eras, but now that many of them have decided to explore the modern era it's almost refreshing to jump back to something more 'classic'. '1951 - World War One' by Treehouse is based in an alternate history setting, with the first World Wars never occurring and after a technological collapse the world has gone to war in the early 50's. Gameplay couldn't be simpler as you start a career as one of three currentl…

Mice Heist Review

Review Trickshot Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Mice Heist Review

Roll with me on this one... For some reason you've decided that it'd be a top idea to drop your cheese in to a giant pile in front of a series of conspicuous mice-holes, only to find out that they're a nest of anthropomorphic critters out to steal your cheese. Well in Mice Heist it's just another day as usual, but at least you get to tap them to send them on their way, with the occasional disco-dancing cat also dropping by to scare them off. Once you've chosen a difficulty level, the…

Monster Mayhem Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Monster Mayhem Review

Zombies are the least of your problems as the Gate Keeper of a graveyard. In Monster Mayhem by Chillingo you'll face the creatures of the night and their imposingly huge bosses while dispensing round after round of ammunition to stop them from breaking out of your graveyard. As a weapon-based castle-defense game you're given a broad selection of guns, explosives and even a melee weapon to fend off everything from blobs of slime to Asian hopping zombies. But this is no easy feat to pul…
