Solitaire Siege Review

Review BadBumble By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years ago
Solitaire Siege Review

Solitaire games are practically married to mobile phones. It's a partnership that makes sense as they're just digital versions of games almost everyone learns to play in one form or another.

As a simple card game, you only need to tap the cards on screen. This would be hard to mess up, but sometimes…

LUXOR Review

LUXOR Review

They say that imitation is flattery, but when it comes to arcade marble-poppers LUXOR by MumboJumbo may not be an original concept, but this port to the iPhone is immediately fun and challenging; so what more could you ask for? There are three major schemes for controlling the marble-shooter, but sadly the two optional methods seem to exist more as a side-note, with neither one being practical for use. Your shooter can be smoothly dragged around the bottom of the screen, with vertical…

Timeloop Review

Timeloop Review

Each room is navigated by your hapless robot called Nik by touching where he needs to go. This would sound ea…
