Commodore 64 Review

Review Manomio LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Commodore 64 Review

For many people, the Commodore 64 (C64) is remembered with equal part nostalgia and frustration. It found its primary market in the UK, but even despite the video game crash of 1983 it still had a home in North America. If you're one of the few people lucky enough to have experienced the superior gameplay the system had at the time Commodore 64 by Manomio might just be for you. Much like Manomio's port of Flashback, this app is a licensed emulator of the C64. The menu system is easy t…

Cross Fingers Review

Review Mobigame By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Cross Fingers Review

Cross Fingers by Mobigames is about as polished as a puzzle game can get on the iPhone with a slick presentation and stunningly simple gameplay that will eat up all of your spare time. The challenge of Cross Fingers is a basic one with players invited to shift blocks of varying size and shape to fill the voids on the screen. Much like tangram puzzles, these voids can be comprised of extremely odd shapes and will require some logic to piece together the final composition. However, this…

Skies of Glory Review

Review MindJolt By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Skies of Glory Review

There's a kind of magic that comes from developers that use the free-to-download but pay-to-play model correctly and Skies of Glory by SGN will have you handing out cash almost willingly. As the name implies it's a flight simulator with arcade style dog-fighting. The game's set in World War II and takes players on a world-wide tour as you progress through the missions. Your accelerometer controls the basic tilt and lift of your plane, while touches and drags allow you to manipulate yo…

Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X Review

There's a danger in porting games from the current generation of consoles to hand-held devices simply because they tend to never capture what made the game so special in the first place. Tom Clancy's HAWX has been brought to the App Store by Gameloft and shatters any doubts about providing an authentic experience on your iPhone. HAWX is a dog-fighting flight simulator that errs more towards arcade gameplay than it does realism. The game's set in a semi-fictional modern technological w…

Need for Speed Shift Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Need for Speed Shift Review

It's hard to put some prejudices behind and while racing games are generally fun, they also lack a lot of energy and feel like they're entirely interchangeable. Thankfully the cure to this lethargy is simple as Need for Speed Shift isn't just fast and furious, it's so good you'll be smiling in 60 seconds. One of the first solid features of the game revolves around your chosen difficulty settings. Depending on your selection features like auto-braking, steering assist, auto transmissio…

Glyder 2 Review

Ever wanted to glide through the air, dipping and ducking between canyons in a mystical dream world?

Tilt forward to launch into the air, picking up speed by nose diving, then raise altitude by tilting back, and tilt left and right to turn. Two gau…

BoboBua (FULL Version) Review

Review TripodGames By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
BoboBua (FULL Version) Review

If you were a meatball who just watched your beloved (another meatball) be consumed in front of your eyes, what would you do? Why you'd launch yourself into the gullet of the person who ate them, bringing along your best friend who's a noodle and go on a quest to battle food through a digestive tract in order to save her. At least that's how the story goes for BoboBua by Tripod Games. The gameplay has been self dubbed as an attempt at a purely casual, relaxing and rewarding experience…

Bear Paw Review

Review Neil Balharrie By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Bear Paw Review

If there's one word to describe Bear Paw by Neil Balharrie, it's "elegant". Simplicity is the key to this orbit physics simulator and with its basic controls and basic gameplay Bear Paw is more about enjoying the experience than beating it. Like other orbit simulators, the goal is to stay alive for a set period of time. Each level is played the same way with players setting up their ship with a touch and giving it a trajectory and power with a slide of the finger. After this control i…

Inotia 2: A Wanderer of Luone Review

Review Com2uS Corp. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Inotia 2: A Wanderer of Luone Review

Inotia: A Wanderer of Luone is the sequel to Com2uS' self proclaimed first touch action RPG on the App Store. It has a lot to live up to, with the first being a fairly basic hack'n'slash that ultimately felt like a game for fans of the genre. In this new adventure a lot more effort has gone into not only the story, but also the gameplay itself, now boasting five classes and the ability to party with two other members. You can choose between using a virtual d-pad or touch screen contro…

Ski Champ Review

Review Eric Farraro By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 10 months ago
Ski Champ Review

Freestyle skiing, slalom and abominable snow monsters. These evoke powerful memories for some from a game that was either impossible or so much fun that you were able to restart the entire mountain as it wrapped around at the end. Ski Champ is an updated SkiFree for the App Store by Lazy Peon Games and gives the game a genuinely well earned retouching. Cruising down the mountain slopes at high speeds is a snap as players control their skier by sliding their finger across the bottom of…

Tilteroids Review

Review JackCraft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 10 months ago
Tilteroids Review

You'd be forgiven for thinking that Tilteroids by JackCraft isn't the most original name for a game that involves TILTing the iPhone to shoot asteROIDS, but when a game does both of these things so well it's hard to call it anything else. As you'd expect tilting performs the main duty of controlling your craft around the screen maneuvering your ship and at the same time aiming your weapon. Tilting to the sides smoothly rotates your shots left and right while moving side-to-side; tilti…

Whether you're pitching or hitting, a virtual d-pad makes it easy to select where you're going to throw or hit…

Guardian Soul Review

Review SK planet By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 10 months ago
Guardian Soul Review

Guardian Soul by Nate Games is easily one of the strongest competitors against other Eastern RPGs on the iPhone and almost directly competes against leading games like Zenonia. Guardian Soul is an Eastern take on the Action RPG genre and adds "collecting" to the mix as you discover new "guardians" to transform in to and defeat your enemies. In order to accommodate the normal interface and its virtual buttons the menus and game in general are scaled down immensely and will require some…

Sway Review

Review Illusion Labs By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 10 months ago
Sway Review

It has to be said, but the main character in Sway by Illusion Labs looks like something directly out of a nightmare. However, this smiling reptilian will lazily swing her way through each level of this physics sim in an attempt to rescue her friends. As you'd imagine, swinging is the main mechanic here and the controls are quite simple in their design. The left and right halves of the screen control the left and right arms of your chosen character (of which there are up to 10 to unloc…
