Doodle Find™ Review

Review KLICKTOCK By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Doodle Find™ Review

If you hadn't already noticed, 'Doodle' has been a category located at the top of the App Store game page for a while now and it's simply incredible to think about just how popular a graphical style can get to warrant such a prime location. Doodle Find by KLICKTOCK seems at first like a minor graphical change from their previous title Super Search 60, but a host of fixes and gameplay updates have accompanied their new game, making this an incredible addictive item-search title. Once y…

AFROian Jewels ™ - We Love You Review

Review Toropot Co, LTD. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
AFROian Jewels ™ - We Love You Review

What's more adorable than afro-bedecked aliens that need a hand to get back home? Possibly a lot of things, but AFROian Jewels by Toropot certainly makes a good case for their poor, lost aliens in their three-match Columns-inspired arcade puzzler for the App Store. It's hard not to notice that the developers strongly recommend that players get used to using a two-thumb setup for their game and when you take it for a spin for the first time you'll quickly understand why. AFROian Jewels…

iBomber 2 Review

Review Cobra Mobile Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
iBomber 2 Review

Almost a year ago, iBomber hit the App Store and has remained a popular title that proves that sometimes blowing things up is all you really want to do or need. iBomber 2 by Cobra Mobile builds on the success of the first title with minor changes that might invigorate fans of the series. In each level players are challenged to destroy the list of targets before they're shot out of the sky, making use of their magical, infinite supply of bombs against enemy units. Dropping bombs is as…

Extreme Sheepdog Trials HD Edition iPad Review

Review Green Custard Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Extreme Sheepdog Trials HD Edition iPad Review

Extreme Sheepdog Trials HD Edition is the iPad version of UK based developer Green Custard's take on shepherding for iDevices and 'extreme' couldn't be more appropriate as your sheepdog goes from paddock to spaceship in an effort to keep those sheep under control. There are three major control schemes available, with the drawing controls being the easiest to initially try out. Players can direct their dog with taps or drawing paths and herds can be followed by tapping on groups, while…

Monster Mayhem Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 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…

The Glowing Void Review

Review Assyria Game Studio By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
The Glowing Void Review

The Glowing Void by Assyria Game Studio is an interesting spin on the classic arcade game Qix with players being tasked to fill the screen as much as possible while avoiding deadly bouncing balls. It's a basic premise that's given a great twist by allowing players to also flip their iPhone to change the gravity, potentially trapping the bouncing balls for bigger bonuses. 'Filler' mode requires players to fill up at least 70% of the screen, much like Qix and its variants. Touching and…

Atlantis - Legend of the Mermaids Review

Review Hiray Information By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Atlantis - Legend of the Mermaids Review

Saving mermaids from terrible fish-men from Atlantis sounds like a fairly typical motivation for any action hero to pick up his weapon and sally-forth. But 'Atlantis - Legend of the Mermaids' isn't your typical beat'em-up from developer Hiray Information and while your everyday-joe may be on a heroic quest, his motivations aren't entirely pure and you'll have to wade through fish-guts and other unmentionables on your epic journey. Atlantis uses twin-stick shooter controls to move arou…

Solomon's Keep Review

It's dark, it's dank, it's full of undead hordes and it's going to be your graduating exam. Solomon's Keep by Raptisoft is a twin-stick action RPG that boils down the Diablo style of gameplay in to a fun and highly addictive App for your iPhone.

Tiki Smasher Review

Review JetFable By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 12 months ago
Tiki Smasher Review

It's not hard to stumble around the iTunes store and find a handful of great castle defense games, but it's somewhat harder to find truly unique variations on the genre. Tiki Smasher by JetFable takes physics based castle defense games in a new direction by using a tilt-controlled pinball to smash against enemies, making their game incredibly simple to play and enjoy. Several Tiki totems have enlisted your help to defend them from native tribes and animals who are out to destroy them.…

Freaking Inkies Review

Colorful inky blobs have invaded your library and they're ruining your classics from music tabs to your secret stash of comic books, but what can you do? Freaking Inkies by Atakama Labs lets you fight back against the inky-scourge by shooting down each blob in this unique and extremely addictive title. Inkies uses a combination of tilt controls and buttons placed on the edge of the screen to fire colored blobs at your foes. The tilt controls are amazingly accurate and smooth, rivaled…

Linkin Park 8-Bit Rebellion! Review

Review Artificial Life, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 12 months ago
Linkin Park 8-Bit Rebellion! Review

The lead-up to the release of Linkin Park's new beat'em-up inspired game '8-Bit Rebellion' was certainly an interesting one. Friends who professed their love for the band were immediately excited; friends who professed their hatred were immediately turned off; and there was me, stuck in the middle hoping that developer Artificial Life had created more than just an interactive, branded marketing tool. 8-Bit keeps things ratcheted back with basic movement and attacking controls using to…

Mini Plane Review

Mini Plane Review

As a simple touch-based endless game, you'll dive, climb and dodge incoming planes with ease while rescuing stranded victims and claiming stars for bonus points in Mini Plane by OrangePixel. But it isn't always smooth sailing as you slowly progress through the game's content. By touching the screen your plane is given a boost of power, pulling its nose up and out of your initial nose-dive. As you progress, planes and helicopters will provide aerial obstacles to avoid, while the citysc…

Ozone Review

Ozone Review

Developer Geardome asks their customers, "Can a game be a piece of art?". The debate over this may rage on in tiny pockets of the internet (and in some cases in mainstream media), but truthfully 'Ozone' by Geardome skirts awfully close to art and delivers an experience that's complex and dazzling in its execution. Your orb is pushed around the game's various mazes by touching a direction on the virtual d-pad. This releases a small portion of your remaining gas, which in turn shrinks y…

StarCannon Review

StarCannon Review

Jagex Game Studio, better known for their great selection of free games online have recently released a port of their popular shoot'em-up title 'StarCannon' for the iPhone. Strangely, something seems to have been lost in translation and this title bears very little resemblance to the game's progenitor. Like most recent shoot'em-ups, StarCannon uses a touch and drag system to control the player's ship. Firing is automatic while touching the screen and the ship will automatically steer…

Top Dog: Farmyard Adventures Review

Top Dog: Farmyard Adventures Review

The agricultural system of New Zealand is important to its country, providing most of its major exports to the world. Images such as a shepherd rounding up his sheep with the help of a sheepdog are iconic to NZ's pastoral landscape, so it's little wonder that local developers 'Flightless' have based their latest App Store game around this rural chore. Top Dog: Farmyard Adventures puts you in the place of a shepherd calling out directions to his faithful sheepdog in order to round up t…
