VANQUISH: The Oath of Brothers Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
VANQUISH: The Oath of Brothers Review

The Action-RPG is a genre that can take a lot of beating. It's a flexible genre that lets you put as much or as little of each genre into the mix and still "get away with it". Vanquish: The Oath of Brothers is the latest Action-RPG from Gamevil and tries something new with a more "on rails" experience. Vanquish sports the usual virtual analogue stick and buttons that you'd expect, but the game is not as simple as it seems. Combat is fairly standard, with the usual combination of attac…

Plants vs. Zombies Review

Review PopCap By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 7 months ago
Plants vs. Zombies Review

Popcap is known for some very popular addictive titles and has had some great success in porting these to the iphone. Now, just short of a year of its PC release, the cutesy tower defense game Plants vs. Zombies is now available on this mobile device. There is a pack of zombies roaming the neighbourhood and as a local homeowner, you must use the power of your garden (and the help of Crazy Dave) to repel the undead horde. Control is fantastic. Every action is a touch away, and even whe…

DOOM II RPG Review

Review id Software By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
DOOM II RPG Review

Role-playing games (RPGs) have had a long and interesting history, stemming from text based adventures that later became action orientated, turn-based dungeon crawlers. These complex games were often too complex for a broader audience to enjoy, but as gamers grew so too did the RPG. id Software's latest game on the App Store is Doom II RPG and proves that there's still some teeth to the old dungeon crawler. In keeping with id's experimentation with simpler interfaces for touch devices…

Daisy Mae's Alien Buffet Review

Daisy Mae's Alien Buffet Review

Twin stick shooters are becoming a popular genre in the appstore, but it takes something special to stand out from the crowd. IUGO have thrown out Daisy Mae's Alien Buffet onto the iphone, which is a solid entry into the genre with a grindhouse feel, fun weapons, and rapidly increating difficulty. The standard twin stick controls are only the default for Daisy Mae. Two other controls schemes are available, one replacing the shooting stick with a button, and for those looking for an ea…

Star*Burst Review

Star*Burst Review

Star*Burst is a new match-three game from the excessively named developer Super Happy Fun Fun. This is truly a unique take on the genre combining time-management games with gem matching for some frantic and sometimes frustrating fun. Gems are passed down a multi-row conveyor belt that need to be caught with your paddle and then tossed up one at a time to form matching groups. Bonuses are awarded for more complex patterns and gems can be tossed back onto the conveyor belt if needed. Pe…

Battle for Cydonia Review

Review Brisk Mobile Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Battle for Cydonia Review

2360: Battle for Cydonia by Brisk Mobile is the one of the latest mech shooters available for the App Store. With gameplay that combines real time strategy and action rpgs it's a frantically paced game, though this may not be as exciting as it sounds. With a top down RTS-inspired view point and interface, your mech uses a simple set of commands to lock on and eliminate enemies. The controls are intuitive and perfect for touch devices, which is a god-send for dealing with the hordes of…

Warheads Review

Review Pangea Software, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Warheads Review

One of the great things about the App Store is seeing how classic arcade games are revived and reinterpreted for a new audience.  Warheads is the latest release from Pangea Software and attempts to update the seminal arcade game Missile Command. Jumping into the game couldn't be easier and requires a quick tap and a quick wit to survive each successive wave sent to wipe you out. The basic screen layout is the same as the original, with three missile lanchers set amongst objects y…

Ghosts'n Zombies Review

Review TipCat Mobile By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago

So it's no surprise that some may avoid Ghosts'n Zombies by Tipcat Mobile expecting another platformer, but those who do avoid it will be missing out on a fun and challenging action shooter that's perfect for gaming on the go.

Parachute Ninja Review

Out of all the deadly things in a ninja's arsenal, one thing has always been missing. Parachutes! That is about to change with Parachute Ninja.

Along the way your last surviving uncle Master Yo shows you the art of being a ninja.

Flaboo! Review

Review Fluttermind By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Flaboo! Review

Every now and then a game comes along that just hits all of your buttons and sucks you right in. Flaboo! by Fluttermind is a new endless gameplay style game that is cute, addictive and most worryingly of all a danger to any amount of spare time you have. Initially Flaboo can be compared to games like Doodle Jump and requires you to bounce your fat chick higher and higher up a series of clouds. Here's where the similarities end as the game combines complex gameplay to keep you constant…

Spore™ Creatures Review

Review Electronic Arts By Luke Bartley, 4 years, 7 months ago
Spore™ Creatures Review

Spore. The mere mention of this series instantly brings thoughts of crazy looking critters eating smaller, equally crazy looking critters. This version has hit the appstore, but has failed to evolve into something very interesting. The game has you doing familiar tasks of devouring things smaller than you to increase your DNA pool, allowing you to add more body parts and become a more complex organism. There are a number of other species to interact with. Either attack creatures to wip…

Tumbledrop Review

Review Starfruit Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Tumbledrop Review

Tumbledrop by Starfruit Games is a beguiling and challenging physics puzzler with a cutesy style that borders on excessive. The magic of this App comes from not only attempting to solve puzzles normally, but also how it rewards repeat players. Each level involves solving an intricate puzzle by getting the "pink star" to land on the available safe zone(s). However the challenge comes from attempting to do so while the star starts in a precariously balanced position. Tapping blocks will…

TileStorm Review

Review Massive Hadron By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
TileStorm Review

Lets be honest, sometimes it's not hard to understand why people shy away from games that call themselves "puzzles", because ultimately few people enjoy the idea of being frustrated working out solutions. TileStorm by Massive Hadron walks a thin line between fun and frustration with its tile-sliding puzzles that you'll either love or loathe. Manipulating puzzles couldn't be easier and play much like a regular tile-sliding puzzle. The trick here is to maneuver the pieces to form a path…
