Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six®: Shadow Vanguard Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six®: Shadow Vanguard Review

Having already shown their deft skills at producing great First Person Shooters on iOS devices, Gameloft have taken up the reins for the Rainbow Six franchise with the release of Shadow Vanguard. The focus on tactical awareness is much sharper than in previous titles like Modern Combat 2 and players will need to command a squad in order to carry out their missions with ghost-like silence. Gone are the days of intense pre-mission setups requiring long tedious memorization of tactical m…

iStunt 2 - Snowboard Review

Review Miniclip.com By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
iStunt 2 - Snowboard Review

Although Winter may be coming to an end, there's no reason to pack in your hopes for enjoying the snow slopes with a bit of snowboarding action thanks to iStunt 2 by Miniclip. Although I should point out that anyone trying to perform the stunts in this game in real life should probably be committed, but hey... what's to stop someone from accidentally inventing a gravity reversing machine in the process. While the early levels of the 42 currently available set a fairly relaxed and mayb…

Hockey Nations 2011 Pro Review

Review Distinctive Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Hockey Nations 2011 Pro Review

Finding a decent Ice Hockey title isn't always easy and while the 2K series certainly has its charms it's not always the most complete in its representation of the sport. Hockey Nations 2011 Pro by Distinctive Developments attempts to pack in a whole lot of features while still looking and feeling great, but a few rough edges keep it from really leading the pack. For those not already embedded in the sport, attempting to fathom how to approach the game can be challenging as there's no…

Space Bunnies Review

Review ShockPanda Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Space Bunnies Review

Bunnies are by their very nature an extremely cute species - sure we could get in to how we as humans are conditioned to various forms of 'cuteness', but damn it I just like bunnies, leave me alone! Space Bunnies follows the adventures of a race of alien bunnies who for reasons unknown are green and look like Gir in his dog-suit from Invader Zim, but I digress... they need to find a new home and you'll need to fly their ship of cuddles and rainbows across the universe in search of a st…

Super Ball Escape Review

Review Thomas Meyer By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Super Ball Escape Review

Super Ball Escape by Playlithium may look like a fairly prototypical Labyrinth-inspired tilt-based game and you'd be right, well at least for the first few minutes of the game, but it doesn't take long before you're morphing and trying to trick your way past defenses to escape the crazy maze you're stuck in. But first things first - at what point in the future did humanity decide to design their buildings out of corridors and thin platforms that drop off in to a near-bottomless void?…

Trigonon Review

Review Just Funny Games S.r.l. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Trigonon Review

Trigonon by Just Funny Games goes to a lot of effort to introduce players to the concept of pinballs being 'thoughts' that need to be captured by exploiting memories (positive and negative) and other metaphorical objects, but ultimately this puzzler will test your skills at quickly analyzing levels and creating barriers capture all the balls as fast as possible. Tapping on the level will generate a barrier (as long as you have enough energy to do so) and can subsequently be spun aroun…

Volcano Escape Review

Review Bravo By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Volcano Escape Review

I'd love to have been a fly on the wall when Volcano Escape was first discussed as the combination of traditional platforming with twin-stick controls is extremely unique and potentially difficult to pull off. However, true to the literal translation of their company name, Bravo Game Studios has taken up the challenge and now you have the chance to control one of six different characters as they try to escape their fate as a char-grilled sacrifice. Moving around the screen is certainl…

Float Review

Review Elevate Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Float Review

Elevate Entertainment and Crawl Space Games describe their new game in an elegant way that's easy to sympathize with: If you've ever wasted a couple minutes batting a balloon around a room or up in to the air then you'll know what you're in for with Float. The basic concept in each of the available modes is to prevent your balloons from popping in the spikes below by tapping on them and causing them to fling up towards the top of the screen. Varied shapes react differently to your tou…

Puckerz! Review

Review Groundbreaking Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Puckerz! Review

Being a dedicated gamer can be tiring, not in the sense that it's physically demanding, but sometimes the long bouts of concentration can be draining. This is where casual games tend to fill the gap, providing a fun, mindless way to enjoy your spare time without the same demands that other titles expect of you. Puckerz! by Groundbreaking Games is like a breath of fresh air, providing gameplay that requires nothing more than your willingness to keep smashing shiny objects in an attempt…

Tasty Planet Review

Review Dingo Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Tasty Planet Review

Tasty Planet by Dingo Games is an adaption of the game of the same name from its desktop PC release. Based in part on the same gameplay concept as Katamari Damacy, you must consume objects that are smaller than you until you grow large enough to consume everything in sight. Life in Tasty Planet starts off in a petri dish, cleaning up dirt as intended, however it's clear that the inventor of this gray-goo didn't design limitations on what could be consumed and it soon escalates out of…

Captain Puzzle Review

Review Spearhead Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Captain Puzzle Review

The timing of the release of Captain Puzzle by Spearhead Entertainment couldn't be more unfortunate, but sometimes fate can be a cruel mistress and you have to play with the hand you're dealt. Thankfully, while Captain Puzzle features gameplay not unlike Bust-A-Move, the puzzle-based focus makes for a more demanding title. As Captain Puzzle, you need to match three or more colored orbs together by throwing (and occasionally bouncing) randomly assigned orbs around the screen. Initially…

Reiner Knizia's Yoku-Gami Review

Review Meritum Soft d.o.o. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Reiner Knizia's Yoku-Gami Review

With plenty of board games already under his belt, Reiner Knizia has turned his hand at producing a simpler puzzle game for the App Store. Yoku-Gami is the result of this collaboration with developer Meritum Soft and you'll need to put your math-hats on to make headway in this puzzler. Whether you choose the Endless, Arcade or Level mode, the basic gameplay remains the same. Players are presented with a 6x6 grid filled with numbers and to clear them off the board you'll need to select…

Fruit Frenzy Review

Review White Bat Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Fruit Frenzy Review

Is it just me, or has it been a while since three-match games have been on your personal radar? Apart from the occasional game throwing it in as an additional gameplay feature it seems to have lost a lot of steam. Fruit Frenzy by White Bat Games doesn't seek to reignite the old gem-fueled flames, opting instead to take a puzzle-oriented approach to the gameplay that's as fresh as the fruit you use to make matches. Instead of swapping icons directly, players need to manage shift the fr…

Etolis: Arena Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Etolis: Arena Review

With an arcade puzzle title already under their belt, developer Facet Studios has turned their hands towards something a little more action oriented with their Chillingo released title, Etolis: Arena. In what is now a fairly familiar situation for iOS gamers, you'll be pitted against waves of enemies that need to be mowed down in succession in order to survive this twin-stick genre death trap. There's not much in the way of control customization and players will need to stick to the s…

League of Evil Review

Review Ravenous Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
League of Evil Review

League of Evil by Woblyware and Ravenous Games makes me angry. I'm angry because League of Evil is yet more proof that we can have fun platformers on iOS devices, but so few manage to make something as simple as running and jumping genuinely fun to play. After a brief introductory level explaining your controls, you're thrown in to the world of a super agent and his quest to kill evil scientists across the world. Each level places you in to a gauntlet of traps, spikes, turrets and ene…
