Hip Hop All Star Review

Review iwin, Inc. By Kelly Mitchell, 4 years, 8 months ago
Hip Hop All Star Review

Slap down the beat, turn up the music and scratch your way to DJ-Stardom with Hip Hop All Star. Starting off as an amateur DJ, the player must scratch and cut their way through each level battling other rival DJs on the way to fulfil their hopes of becoming the next DJ superstar. The controls are very suitable for this style of game. Players must tap their finger on the correct notes as the record spins and hold their finger down on the screen for long notes. Although this sounds like…

DaVinci's Secret Machines Review

Review Aboveground Systems LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
DaVinci's Secret Machines Review

Davinci's Secret Machines by Aboveground Systems is another take on the physics sim puzzle set of games already in abundance on the App Store. It's a fairly simple offering for the genre, but one that still challenges players to think laterally to solve the myriad of puzzles on offer. Puzzles in physics simulators tend to be challenging thanks to the way complex machines end up becoming chaotic and prone to wild results from tiny changes. Davinci's Secrets is no big improvement here a…

Arachnadoodle Review

Review Connect2Media By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 8 months ago
Arachnadoodle Review

Arachnadoodle is a quirky puzzle game that allows players the chance to live out any life long dreams to be an arachnid. You play as a goofy little spider who must build a web using the small pins in each level as a frame in order to catch the oncoming waves of flies. You must complete your web by using all of the pins or else you risk losing your lunch and ending the game. Players jump around madly to spin their web by tapping and dragging out a direction they want the spider to jump…

GHOSTS'N GOBLINS GOLD KNIGHTS Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
GHOSTS'N GOBLINS GOLD KNIGHTS Review

It's fairly common for older "classic" games to get a port on the iPhone, whether it be as an emulated copy, a stylized clone, or a complete overhaul. Ghosts'n Goblins Gold Knights by CAPCOM attempts to bring the classic arcade game to the iPhone while mashing modern styles together. Once you're in the game you'll find yourself presented with the familiar platform controls of a virtual d-pad on the left and attack/jump buttons on the right. They do take up a considerable amount of scr…

Players must still uncover more hidden fossils, treasures and other goodies, without destroying their dig vehicle or running out of fuel. Players drill into the earth by using the on screen joystick and like the original, players can drill in any direction but upwards. However, players will need to drill deep in…

Chuzzle Review

Review PopCap By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Chuzzle Review

Would you dare to accept the challenge to end the explosively short lives of furballs in the never ending quest to use their eyes for magical elixirs? Chuzzle by PopCap Games is the latest PC-to-iPhone convert of one of their more colorful and fast paced match-three style games and begs the question "Just what are Chuzzles anyway?". Combos are made by dragging rows or columns around in order to align the colored furballs for their explosive final acts. This can be further complicated…

Red Conquest! (Episodes 1 & 2!) Review

Review Cat in a Box Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 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, 8 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, 8 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…
