Spooky Spirits: Puzzle Drop!! Review

Review Innogiant Ltd. By Kelly Mitchell, 4 years, 4 months ago
Spooky Spirits: Puzzle Drop!! Review

Spooky Spirits is a falling-block game with a difference, it has ghosts in it!  The game follows Becky and Tim, two spirit wardens who accidentally fell asleep whilst on the job and let the Spookies escape! Its now up to you to help the wardens capture the Spookies back by matching up the falling coloured blocks. Players can select blocks by swiping their finger left or right on the screen and can move them by swiping upward and drop them by swiping downward. Although this seems…

Red Conquest! (Episodes 1 & 2!) Review

Review Cat in a Box Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Red Conquest! (Episodes 1 & 2!) Review

Cat in a Box Games is the other name for iPhone game creator John Kooistra and Red Conquest! is the latest installment in a series of games involving the continuing war of Red and Blue. Where previous installments covered arcade shooters from different angles, Red Conquest is a pure real time strategy (RTS) and a treat to play. There's a fairly steep learning curve for most casual players in most RTSs and the somewhat complex set of controls for Red Conquest keep that curve relatively…

Castle Frenzy Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Castle Frenzy Review

Castle Frenzy by Gameloft combines some of the best features of the castle defense genre (while borrowing heavily from rival developer Chillingo) and brings the game to the third dimension. If you've played Knights Onrush before you'll feel more than a sense of déjà vu, but the gameplay is still a blast to enjoy as you deal with new enemies and master new attack techniques. This is a touch and flick type of defense game and enemy selection is surprisingly accurate, which…

GROUND EFFECT Review

Review Glenn Corpes By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 4 months ago
GROUND EFFECT Review

Ground Effect is an F-Zero or WipEout style hover-ship racing game where players traverse a series of varied tracks in high speed racing action. You’ll need to navigate each track, fly through each checkpoint and use your turbo effectively to come out as the winner and progress onto the next race. There are two control schemes for players to use; a tilting scheme and a control stick scheme. Sadly neither one of these options is as responsive or smooth as you’d like them to…

Review Okay Games By Kelly Mitchell, 4 years, 4 months ago
Zoo Olympic Review

Players get ready, get set and go for gold in this exciting and sickly cute mini-game adventure that is Zoo Olympics! The controls for this game are easy but challenging as some of the mini games require much faster reflexes than others. The controls for all the mini games are touch based, however some of the mini games are assisted by the use of a mini game pad which is displayed at the bottom of the screen whereas some of the others require the player to tap on certain areas repetit…

Coast Defense - Reloaded Review

Review GAMEHUNTER By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Coast Defense - Reloaded Review

It's easy to automatically get into a bad mood when faced with "yet another" castle defense style game, but it's nice to be surprised once in a while by a developer. Coast Defense by Elene Kim manages to breathe some life in to a genre that has suffered for its clones, which automatically makes this a game worth checking out. Coast Defense uses a combination of tilting to pan the screen, dragging a reticule to aim your shots on incoming troops and a trigger in the bottom corner. The r…
