Bix Review

Review Padadaz By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 10 months ago
Bix Review

Bix by Padadaz is a great new arcade game that fuses the classic gameplay from Taito's Qix with more modern gameplay adaptions from Jezzball and KBounce. For those who don't know these iconic games, Bix is an arcade game that has you racing to claim screen's space without being hit by balls bouncing around the increasingly smaller play area. Your "tracer" is controlled by simple directional swipes to indicate which direction it should draw a line and subsequently create a box. Lives a…

Cell War Review

Review TipCat Mobile By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 10 months ago
Cell War Review

Cell War is a horizontal shooter much like R-Type and other arcade shooter games. Your goal is to pilot the nano machine and stop the spread of infectious diseases and viruses that could wipe out mankind. But fear not, the nano machine can be upgraded with powerful collectibles that will give those nasty germs a run for their money - or whatever germs exchange for goods and services. Players control the nano machine by tilting their iPhone to move, tapping on enemies to launch a power…

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…

Review Handplant Studios By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 10 months ago
SpongeDude Review

SpongeDude is a physics based puzzle game where players take control of SpongeDude, a green cube who has been exiled to earth for falling asleep while on guard duty of the moon. It’s now up to you to get him off this bizarre planet and back home, but this is easier said than done. Seeing as how SpongeDude does not have any limbs, he cannot move or walk on his own accord.

The Impossible Quiz! Review

Review inXile Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 10 months ago
The Impossible Quiz! Review

Games that aim to annoy are an odd breed. The Impossible Quiz by inXile Entertainment dances on the line of frustration and entertainment with care and when you accept the challenge you do so knowing it won't be fair. Playing the game involves being taunted with touch-to-respond answers that require thoughts so bendy they'd only look straight in a carnival fun house mirror maze. There's not as much of a dependance on "what am I thinking" logic puzzles and more of a dependance on "gues…

U-Boot Plus Review

Review Bootant LLC By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 10 months ago
U-Boot Plus Review

uBoot is an arcade game that throws players in the deep end, literally. You’re in control of a small submarine and must travel the briny depths of the ocean all while avoiding various mines, strange sea creatures and other submarines. You must go as far as possible in order to max out your highscore and progress onto the next level. The controls differ based on which of the three difficulties you play on.

Rope Raider Review

Review 10tons Ltd By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 10 months ago
Rope Raider Review

For those of you who love Rope’N’Fly, then you’re in luck because there’s a new high flying, rope swinger in town. Rope Raider puts player in control of a rather heavy looking super hero as he swings around from building to building trying to get as far as possible without falling to the ground. Players tap on a building to throw out a grappling hook and begin their Tarzan style swing and they tap again to release it. You’ll need to keep this going in ord…

OMG Pirates! Review

Review Mika Mobile, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 10 months ago
OMG Pirates! Review

From the developer that brought you mass zombie slaughter in Zombieville USA comes the next beat'em up action adventure from Mika Mobile, OMG Pirates. Slaughtering pirates en masse couldn't be more fun, but that doesn't mean it'll be easy. The controls are a simple affair, which not only gives Pirates an old school feel, but makes the game easier to deal with on the iPhone. You move your nimble ninja with a virtual analogue stick and jump, counter, combo and flip out with the aid of t…

Ladybug Dreams Review

Review Killer Robots By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 10 months ago
Ladybug Dreams Review

Some of the best games in the 90s on consoles were generally fairly simple arcade-style games, opting to challenge players to learn a game on their terms and mastering it (at least until you put down the controller in frustration). Ladybug Dreams by Killer Robots brings back the style of design that forces you to wrangle with the game before it gets fun. Your ladybug (named Chu) is placed in a Pac-man-esque set of mazes and is forced to collect all the aphids lying around. Controlling…

Review Clickgamer.com By Kelly Mitchell, 4 years, 10 months ago
Aztec Quest Review

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…

Galaxy Control Review

Review TopLineSoft Systems By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 10 months ago
Galaxy Control Review

Flight Control had you landing planes safely, DrawRace had you competing for first place and now Galaxy Control by TopLineSoft Systems follows the line-drawing arcade style to slowly drift spacecraft to their home planets. Drawing lines from each spacecraft to their home planet is no easy task as you attempt to avoid other planets, other crafts and the occasional drifting asteroid. This is further complicated by the fact that multiple spacecrafts will appear at the same time leading t…
