Touchgrind BMX Review

Review Illusion Labs By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Touchgrind BMX Review

Touchgrind BMX by Illusion Labs is the sort of game that builds fans; not just the regular kind that love the game, but the kind that's willing to give a game a shot because it's made by 'that' company. BMX has come a long way since the 2008 finger-flipping skateboard game from the early days of the App Store and anyone who has spent time enjoying games like Tony Hawk's Pro Skater are likely to lose themselves for days on this high-scoring title. After watching three brief in-game tut…

Prince Penny Review

Review Lionbird By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Prince Penny Review

How can a King remain a King if his kingdom is entirely destitute? Easy! Just wait for flying lion-bird's to poop out coins all over your kingdom and collect the gold for insant profit. This does assume you're living in the world of Prince Penny by developer Lionbird, but it scores points for originality if nothing else. One of the upsides of having so many endless titles cluttering up the App Store is the chance for something fun and bizarre to make its way to the top of the pack, gi…

Bumpy Road Review

Review Simogo AB By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Bumpy Road Review

Developer Simogo is no stranger to creating addictive high-score titles, having already captured people's attention with the charming Kosmo Spin and their latest release Bumpy Road shows no signs of letting up on this trend. A unique control system isn't the only thing that makes this game worth picking up as players are treated to a rich world of sights and sounds with story breadcrumbs to keep you coming back for more. At its core, Bumpy Road is another endless platformer, but playe…

Army of Darkness Defense Review

Review Backflip Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Army of Darkness Defense Review

Army of Darkness was, even in my early years, a cult-classic and with such a following it's hard not to step on some toes when approaching the franchise for a video game conversion. Instead of trying to create something grandiose and overly-complex, Backflip Studios sticks to what it does best - that is to say, a game that's focused with a limited scope while still being enjoyable enough to keep coming back for more. There are no surprises for guessing what kind of game Army of Darkne…

Jump Out!™ Review

Review Avallon Alliance Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Jump Out!™ Review

Some may lead and others may follow, but in either case when it comes to video games the winner is always the consumer. While Jump Out! by Avallon Alliance has shades of Cut The Rope slathered all over it, I really can't bring myself to be upset – honestly, who can remain upset looking at those insanely adorable bugs. Players will find themselves traversing through 60 currently available levels over two environments, flinging bugs from the safety of their rotating bottle-caps an…

Frisbee® Forever Review

Review Kiloo By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Frisbee® Forever Review

I'm almost disappointed that Frisbee Forever by Kiloo Games didn't come out sooner, what with Tron: Legacy being released last year, especially considering the original film managed to turn something as casual as flipping a disc between buddies in to a deadly sport. At any rate, this title is more about timing and skilled maneuvering of your Frisbee to collect stars as you dodge and weave your way through bright and colorful courses around a fantasy world. Players can choose between t…

Who’s That Flying?! Review

Who’s That Flying?! Review

Perhaps I'm a glutton for punishment or maybe there's something bizarrely attractive about its simple, clean presentation, but Who's That Flying?! by Mediatonic and Beeline Interactive is proving harder to put down than I first expected. Considering its difficulty level you'd naturally assume that time would only dull the experience, giving you more reasons to not load it up, but with each attempt you'll manage to claw your way to victory as Earth's super-powered defender. Being a sup…

Snuggle Truck Review

Review Owlchemy Labs By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Snuggle Truck Review

Snuggle Truck by Owlchemy Labs is the kind of game you want to hold up as a golden standard of why games need their gameplay to stand on their own merit before finalizing the particulars of the presentation. What started out as a tongue-in-cheek title about border-running has transformed in to a fluffy animal smuggling title, but in either case the game is outrageously fun, amusing to play and supremely difficult to put down. Ultimately your aim is to get your truck and any animals th…

Gears Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Gears Review

From classics such as Marble Madness to modern titans like Super Monkey Ball, rolling a ball around a perilous maze isn't likely to leave us any time soon, especially when Labyrinth-style games fit so well with the iDevice's tilt-based control system. Gears by Crescent Moon Games combines visual excellence with some devious level designs, however it's the lack of emphasis on the tilt-controls that makes this a truly enjoyable gaming experience. While players can turn on tilt-controls,…

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP Micro Review

Review Capybara Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP Micro Review

Video games (and especially those on the App Store) often boil down to fun interactive distractions that serve up entertainment in a novel fashion. Some are far better at creating an absorbing experience; some focus on technical skills and teamwork; others seek to bend the interactive medium in to something far more touching. Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP Micro is the collaborative work of Superbrothers, Capybara Games and songwriter Jim Guthrie and the end result is a relaxin…

Air Penguin Review

Imagine you're a penguin collecting food for your friend's and family when, 'WHAMO!', a wild Global Warming appears and uses Sunny Day to melt your home in to tiny chunks of ice. Annoying as that may be, everyone you know is now stranded on the quickly forming islands of ice and it's up to you in Air Penguin by GAMEVIL to rescue them. The ultimate aim of each chapter may be to rescue an individual penguin, however on each stage your goal is simply to survive your trip to each flag. Yo…

World of Goo Review

Review 2D BOY By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
World of Goo Review

NOTE: While our site is still indicating the initial discount price of $0.99, the App has returned to its full price of $2.99 as of 15th April 2011. There are few games as easy to recommend for your desktop PC as World of Goo by 2D BOY; while there are similar titles that could be considered more challenging, the charming story and presentation of this game goes a long way to absorb and lock players in. Its eventual release on the iPad was a boon for the iOS device and a great way to…

Woozzle Review

Review Lukas Korba By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Woozzle Review

I've said it before and I'll say it again, but if you missed out on owning an Amiga you missed out on a prime slice of gaming history and some incredible titles. One such game that crossed the computer's path was Logical by Rainbow Arts (of Turrican fame) and while it suffered for its association with other abstract puzzle titles of the time it has seen a revival in the form of Woozzle by Mugeaters. The core gameplay is fairly simple as you only have to fill up a series of rotating pl…

Tiger Woods PGA TOUR® 12 Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Tiger Woods PGA TOUR® 12 Review

With the usual smattering of casual golfing titles often taking the forefront on the App Store, it's nice to see a serious golf simulation title now and then and Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 12 certainly goes out of its way to please in this regard. Featuring smooth, realistic graphics; a tight control system with a few neat changes; and gameplay modes that vary from the ultra-casual to completely serious, it's almost the complete package for fans of golfing titles. Those familiar with recent…

FINAL FANTASY III Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
FINAL FANTASY III Review

Many outside of Japan know Final Fantasy III (FF3) in its original incarnation on the SNES, though as history would have it this was in fact the 6th installment. Numbering conventions aside, FF3 saw its official debut outside of Japan in 2006 after being released in full 3D for the Nintendo DS and a port of the original NES game on the Nintendo Wii in 2009. Square Enix, ever ready to remain hip with the times has brought the 3D incarnation to the App Store, along with the usual bevvy o…
