Nightfall Review

Review Playdek, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Nightfall Review

As much as I profess a love for board games, I must admit my preoccupation with video games keeps me out of the loop (as it were) when it comes to upcoming or popular titles. Nightfall, an aggressive deck-building card game from Alderac Entertainment Group, has gathered a strong following since its release last year - so it's no surprise to see Playdek, the iOS developer who brought out releases for Food Fight and Ascension, pushing this title out the door as well. Those familiar with…

Time Ducks Review

Review Tough Guy Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Time Ducks Review

There are two ways to approach a game like Time Ducks by Tough Guy Studios. One is to simply say "it's Frogger, combined with Flight Control after a heavy session of drinking in the Hot Tub Time Machine" and just leave it at that... I'll even pat you on the bottom as you scamper away to your room to enjoy it. The other is to put on a legitimate reviewers hat and wait for the inevitable gaming coma that comes when you finish a round, not quite knowing what happened, but knowing you did…

Cado Review

Cado Review

Sometimes it's nice to sit back and enjoy a simple game that just feels good to play. Cado by Clearcut games have taken the sketchbook motif that was insanely popular amongst iPhone games a couple years ago and have used it to make a well handled physics action game. Cado, a black ball needs to get to the portal in each stage. The way he travels there is through rotating the level left or right, causing him to roll around the various obstacles into safety. There is also a star to coll…

Legendary Wars Review

Review Liv Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Legendary Wars Review

Do you happen to have a friend that you hold dear that also happens to have an incredibly annoying personal trait? It could be something as simple as the way they laugh or even a bad habit, but regardless of it you still call them a friend. Legendary Wars by Liv Games is the gaming equivalent of that sort of friend; it's surprisingly refreshing and well considered as far as castle defense games go, but it has one heck of an annoying trait that may make it hard to wholly enjoy. Case in…

DOOM II RPG Review

Review id Software By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
DOOM II RPG Review

Role-playing games (RPGs) have had a long and interesting history, stemming from text based adventures that later became action orientated, turn-based dungeon crawlers. These complex games were often too complex for a broader audience to enjoy, but as gamers grew so too did the RPG. id Software's latest game on the App Store is Doom II RPG and proves that there's still some teeth to the old dungeon crawler. In keeping with id's experimentation with simpler interfaces for touch devices…

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…

MADDEN NFL 10 by EA SPORTS Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 11 months ago
MADDEN NFL 10 by EA SPORTS Review

Lately, Electronic Arts have been the kind of company to take a bit of a risk by trying new publishing schemes that had been considered taboo by other major companies. Madden NFL 10 isn't just a watered down port of their football franchise, it's a full featured video game that almost defies belief in its depth. Plays are selected through the usual setup of slide and tap menus, but the plays themselves are something to behold. Once the ball is snapped, the player can quickly switch be…

Civilization Revolution Review

Review 2K By Dave Flodine, 5 years ago
Civilization Revolution Review

Sid Meirs' Civilization series is one of the most addictive strategic video games in history. A bold statement, but its tech trees, exploration, and 'one more turn' style of gameplay has kept this reviewer glued to his screen since the early 90s. In this port of the most recent game in the series, we see how this style of gameplay transfers to the iPhone. You start the game by choosing a world leader and beginning your civilization around 3000 BC. As you build your armies, cities, and…

PGA Golo Golf Dice Review

PGA Golo Golf Dice Review

PGA Golo Golf Dice is the iPhone's portal to PGA.com's online version of the table-top dice game of the same name. For a game that relies on something as simple as rolling dice it's a remarkably complex game of luck and strategy. There's little to the controls with the dice being shaken each round or rolled out at the touch of a button. The interface serves more as a method of tracking your progress, so there's little room for complexity here. Despite only being a game played with di…
