My Army Review

My Army Review

We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender etcetera, etcetera. When Winston Churchill gave that rousing speech to the House of Commons in 1940, he would probably have no clue that his words would be used to introduce the review for a fun little iPhone game titled My Army. Does it have any relevance outside the game starting on an Omaha-esque beachhead? Not s…

Hero Academy Review

Review Robot Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Hero Academy Review

If you've spent any time gaming on the PC or even major consoles it's hard not to have come across Orcs Must Die, Robot Entertainment's third-person take on tower defense gameplay. Now iOS gamers can experience a taste of the developer's whimsical sense of fun thanks to their free-to-download tactical title, Hero Academy. Part card game, part turn-based strategy, players pit themselves against opponents from around the world in asynchronous matches. As such you can take part in multip…

Jack of All Tribes Deluxe Review

Review G5 Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 12 months ago
Jack of All Tribes Deluxe Review

Trying to untangle the weaved mess that is the birth and growth of certain sub-genres of games can be a daunting task, especially when popular casual titles take to mixing RTS, Strategy and Puzzle elements (along with a dash of luck) in order to create their addicting gameplay. Things get even more complicated when you begin to ponder a game like Jack of All Tribes by G5 Entertainment and Divo Games as it could easily be considered a casual RTS in the style of games like The Settlers,…

Tiny Tower Review

Review NimbleBit LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Tiny Tower Review

If we were to think of all the freemium farming/city creation titles as a sort of time-restricted version of Sim City, then Tiny Tower by NimbleBit is a scaled down and time-restricted version of Sim Tower. Some may balk at the comparison to what is considered a classic, but if anyone is going to pull this off it's the company that brought us Pocket Frogs. Tiny Tower places you in the middle of a vicious cycle of trying to attract 'Bitizens' to live in your tower in order to employ th…

Demolition Dash Free Review

Review dreamfab By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Demolition Dash Free Review

Sometimes it's easy to pre-judge and potentially dismiss a game just because it doesn't 'look good', but there's an evil flip-side to this kind of thinking that results in 'style over substance'. Demolition Dash by dreamfab is a visually impressive title that packages the basic gameplay of an endless platformer with visual flair, but it all feels skin deep. Now and then gamers get the opportunity to wreak havoc in a city ala Godzilla, but in Demolition Dash things are scaled back - a…

Tiger Woods PGA TOUR® 12 Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
Tiger Woods PGA TOUR® 12 Review

With the usual smattering of casual golfing titles often taking the forefront on the App Store, it's nice to see a serious golf simulation title now and then and Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 12 certainly goes out of its way to please in this regard. Featuring smooth, realistic graphics; a tight control system with a few neat changes; and gameplay modes that vary from the ultra-casual to completely serious, it's almost the complete package for fans of golfing titles. Those familiar with recent…

Falling Fred Review

Review Dedalord S.R.L. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Falling Fred Review

Fred... well Fred is a bit of a dingus; I mean honestly... who keeps jumping down a blade and spike filled corridor expecting something different? Fred, that's who. You can try to keep this thick-skulled cretin alive for as long as possible in Falling Fred by Dedalord, however you're ultimately destined to fail, so why not tear off a few limbs while you're at it? Falling Fred is definitely not for the feint of heart as blood is prone to spray around regularly, but if you're doing your…

Typing Maniac Review

Review MetroGames By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Typing Maniac Review

If you haven't had a crack at Typing Maniac on Facebook, I heartily recommend giving it a go - while you may not be the best hardcore gamer around, you might just be able to out-type your friends to a first place victory. However Typing Maniac for iOS devices by MetroGames is a slightly different thing altogether - where the browser version makes great use of keyboard skills, translating the game to depend on your texting skills isn't quite as smooth. This is mostly thanks to the vert…

Buddy Rush ® Review

Review Company 100 Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Buddy Rush ® Review

Freemium titles, or more specifically, games that implement some form of play restriction can get a bad rap, especially if the game harshly limits the time you can play as an incentive to spend money. Adding a social twist via Facebook only seeks to reinforce the habit (and knock the competitive aspect up a notch) and it's easy to feel a bit skeptical about new similar titles, especially if you've been burned in the past. Buddy Rush by Company 100 takes this free game model and attach…

Mahjongg Dimensions Review

Review Backflip Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Mahjongg Dimensions Review

Mahjong, or more specifically 'Mahjong solitaire' has been a computer game staple for a long time now though it has remained relatively unchanged throughout its history, developing a few minor variations involving the pattern that's used. Some may already be familiar with Mahjongg Dimensions (sic) and its attempt at breaking out of the usual '2D' layout thanks to Facebook, but Backflip Studios has brought the game to the App Store, giving you a chance to play this classic game with a t…

Smurfs' Village Review

Smurfs' Village Review

I guess it was only a matter of time before someone realized that the Smurfs lived in a village, 'And hey! What a great idea it'd be if you could manage that little town?!'. So, lo and behold, Capcom have created the official Smurfs' Village and all your usual Farmville-ish obsessions can now be dedicated to defending the Smurfs from their ever present nemesis, Gargamel. Much like other freemium farm/town management style titles, you'll need to earn levels through experience earned fr…

Tap Master I Review

Review Revoc Technologies, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 12 months ago
Tap Master I Review

When a developer from Revoc Technologies contacted us about Tap Master I, he was adamant that this game, as simple as it may seem, was extremely addictive. Skeptical as I was of the usual PR pitch, he wasn't kidding; there's something bizarrely addictive about trying to out-do yourself and others at even simple tasks. Tap Master I packs five different 'tap' themed games that are quick and easy to play, but getting that top score isn't easy. It's hard to call these games, but thanks to…

Train Conductor 2: USA Review

It's been almost six months, but The Voxel Agents have already released the sequel to their incredibly popular action-puzzle title Train Conductor and it's taken the locomotive madness from the Outback and straight to the heartland of the USA. A lot of streamlining of the gameplay has occurred since the last release, with only five locations to explore. To offset this downsizing each area now features an entirely unique gameplay style to explore, with the first two introducing players…

Green Jump Review

Review Baboonix LTD By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Green Jump Review

Much like the boldness displayed by the creators of Veggie Samurai, Baboonix have developed a rather blatant Doodle Jump clone in Green Jump - the first official game for Greenpeace on the App Store. But it's not entirely without merit as Green Jump keeps things simple and most importantly, fun. Players need only to tilt their device to help slide their green crusader around as he jumps off clouds to escape the rising smog. As you climb in to the stratosphere you can collect letters t…

FarmVille by Zynga Review

No matter how you feel about Farmville, whether you're sick of it clogging up your Facebook account or if you're a helpless thrall to its addictive gameplay, you have to admire just how much Zynga understands social gaming. Now that Farmville is available for iDevices, you can stay connected almost wherever you are and strangely enough it may even help to ease the stress of staying updated. A smart-touch system is used to help perform most basic actions like harvesting, planting and p…
