Top Dog: Farmyard Adventures Review

Review Flightless By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
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…

Fruit Ninja Review

Review Halfbrick Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Fruit Ninja Review

UPDATE: The constant support and updates from Halfbrick for Fruit Ninja has been nothing short of spectacular and over time this title has grown from a fun time waster to something you can share with friends either by sniping high scores or by challenging them directly online with a multiplayer mode. Furthermore the addition of an 'Arcade' mode pits players against the clock with powerful power-ups that will test their slicing skills. Fruit Ninja just gets better and better over time a…

Icarus-X Review

Review The Quadsphere By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Icarus-X Review

What could be more exhilarating than rocketing along at super-sonic speeds while blasting away enemies? Icarus-X doesn't think much else is needed with its challenging vertical shoot'em-up gameplay that can border on the impossible for some. Two standard SHMUP control schemes are available for players to use. The default 'Direct' scheme moves your ship to the top of your finger and follows it as you swipe around the screen, while the alternative 'Relative' scheme moves the ship relati…

Azkend HD iPad Review

Review 10tons Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Azkend HD iPad Review

Azkend HD brings 10tons' beautiful puzzler to the iPad along with even more stunning visual upgrades. As with most iPad 'remakes' there's not a lot of difference between the iPhone original and its 'bigger' iPad version, but small gameplay tweaks gives Azkend another breath of fresh-air that might sway those yet to be convinced. Azkend is essentially another match-3 game with a twist. Instead of swapping tiles, players must manipulate the board by drawing paths along the hexagonal gri…

Connext Review

Review Josh Nadelberg By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Connext Review

If you owned a personal computer in the early 90s you might just remember a good old classic like Pipe Mania (also known as Pipe Dreams). This puzzler required players to lay down a path of pipes to reach a goal, sometimes with hilariously convoluted results. Connext by Josh Nadelberg is a game with roots in Pipe Mania and is just as addictive as ever. Players are given a large hexagonal grid to lay out the tiles randomly assigned to them. The field can be dragged around or zoomed in…

Review DFC Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Crash Course Review

Inspired by games like Super Stardust HD on the PS3, Crash Course by DFC Games is a frantic twin-stick shooter that'll blow you away with its detailed special effects and fast-paced gameplay. Like most twin-stick games, the left stick controls your movement while the right stick fires your weapons. Various buttons on the interface allow you to trigger super-bombs, change weapons or activate a boost mode that provides temporary invincibility for plowing your way out of traps. The game…

MATH SOLDIERS Review

Review Racjin Co.,Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
MATH SOLDIERS Review

MATH SOLDIERS is the latest release by Japanese developers Racjin for the App Store. While there's little to do with 'math' there's a whole lot of 'soldiers' and it's your job to match up the sliding tiles to counter-attack monsters invading your cartoon kingdom. In order to attack and defend your castle, tiles need to be matched in to groups of four. Sliding tiles across the screen is performed with a basic swipe and large tiles can move independently of the smaller tiles, making com…

StickMan Rocks Review

Review InMotion Software, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
StickMan Rocks Review

I'm not a fan of rock-climbing, but is it normal for wildlife to go completely berserk and attempt to make your life a living nightmare as you make your way to the summit? StickMan Rocks by InMotion Software will put you off the idea of taking up the hobby of rock-climbing, but at least you'll have a fun endless vertical climbing game to play. As you make your ascent to the wild blue yonder, various beasties will attempt to befoul, poison, pummel or even maim you. Tilting allows you t…

Dark Void Zero Review

Dark Void Zero Review

Claimed to be a 20 year old 'lost' title from Capcom's back catalog, Dark Void Zero is a lovingly created 8-bit tie-in for the recent release of Dark Void on major consoles. From its artwork to the controls and tinny soundtrack, Dark Void Zero is full of what made platformers such strong titles 'back in the day'. In keeping with the NES-style theme, Zero uses a virtual d-pad to move and two buttons for jumping and firing. These controls work well to provide 'revolutionary' 8-way firin…

Flight Control HD iPad Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Flight Control HD iPad Review

If you've not played Flight Control by Firemint, then you might be missing out on a neat product that helped to define how line-drawing management games should feel. Thanks to the larger screen of the iPad, mastering this management game couldn't be easier and there's even a few new features to keep things interesting. For those not familiar with the gameplay, Flight Control throws you in the place of a air-traffic controller with several landing strips to manage. As aircraft enter th…

Chrome-8 Review

Chrome-8 Review

Chrome-8 by Far East Asia Development is a pure puzzle experience. This isn't the kind of game that appeals to many people, but anyone who has enjoyed games like PathPix will enjoy the simple challenge that Chrome-8 provides. Each puzzle represents a web of links used to shift the colored orbs on screen. Your goal is to align the colors in such a way that no two colors are linked. This sounds murderously difficult, but two game modes (and a total of 300 puzzles) are available to warm…

Paper Bridge Review

Review Clever Hamster Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Paper Bridge Review

Paper Bridge by Clever Hamster Games brings bridge building games back to its roots, using simple physics and simple mechanics to give gamers a chance to relax their lateral thinking brain and give some air to their literal thinking brain. I'm fairly sure I just made those last two things up, but where games like Tiki Towers may require you to think outside the box, Paper Bridge lets you stick to basic engineering principles to get the job done. Only three tools are given to draw your…

Babeorella Review

Review doublesix By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Babeorella Review

Babeorella by doublesix knows its audience and much like Daisy Mae of the Alien Buffet, she's a spicy heroine that's not afraid to put her body on the line. Jane Fonda references aside, Babeorella is an endless action brawler that tries hard to keep your attention in almost any way possible. Movement is controlled by an analogue stick while attacks are grouped in to three buttons for variety. Two buttons are used for light and heavy attacks, with three variations available to each dep…

Likwid Review

Review FunMobility By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Likwid Review

Fans of music based games and abstract puzzle solving will probably look at Likwid by FunMobility and say, 'Oh yeah, I've played that game before'. But instead of pointing fingers over who did what first, lets just admit that there's something about this particle-stream gameplay that's positively fascinating to play with. Instead of pretending to play an instrument with taps or swipes, players need to activate cogs by passing particles of the correct color over them. This is done by m…
