Wizards War Review

Review malvicio.com By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Wizards War Review

It's not easy for a lot of independent developer to come up with the next big 'it' game for the App Store, but dedication, skill and passion is almost always evident regardless of the final outcome. Wizards War by solo developer Pedro Morales is a neat, simple up-to-four-player board game that pits wizards and their summoned minions against each other in a duel to the death. The first and most important thing to remember is that your wizard is the only thing keeping you, as a player,…

Review Russ Kumro By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Blazing Arc - Magical Shooting Game Review

It's not easy being a solo, independent developer in this wild world full of heavy hitters and merely putting together a coherent product can be a challenge all on its own.

Phoenix Spirit Review

Review Spearhead Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Phoenix Spirit Review

The forest's Mother Tree is ill and mysteriously you're the only spirit that hasn't been affected making it your duty to find the source of the infection and cure it. Part tilt-based flier and part Metroid-style exploration, Phoenix Spirit by Spearhead Entertainment is a unique and beautiful experience for the iPhone. Much like the flying-squirrel your spirit is represented by, you'll have to glide throughout the game to dodge enemies and quickly dispatch the Tree's corruption. By til…

Vertigo Rogue Review

Review Brainphant By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Vertigo Rogue Review

Vertigo Rogue is a mammoth achievement for independent developer Brainphant for two major reasons. Firstly, the game weighs in at an incredibly small 5.4 megabytes; and secondly, much like the Tardis of Doctor Who fame, you'll marvel at just how comprehensively huge this game is. Vertigo Rogue is a top-down shooter in the same vein as the original GTA series and brings a whole lot of explosive fun to your fingertips. The first major obstacle to conquer is the game's controls. Vertigo…

Cheese Collect Review

Review Koh Jing Yu By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 4 months ago
Cheese Collect Review

Cheese Collect by Koh Jing Yu is an arcade puzzle game that pits you (the mouse) against your nemesis (the wily cat) as he moves his remote-control cheese around a minefield of traps. Despite the fairly uninspired name, Cheese Collect manages to be a surprisingly fun - if somewhat flawed - App for the iPhone. The interface is kept fairly simple with each turn allowing you to move your mouse in one of eight directions (up/down, left/right and diagonals). The touch controls here are a b…

StickWars Review

Review John E. Hartzog By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 4 months ago
StickWars Review

It's always good to see independent developers creating games for the iPhone. StickWars is the effort of John E Hartzog and is a tower defense game involving stick figures. You have a wall which you can repair and fortify with more health. Little stick figures with weapons keep sieging this wall, and it's your job to dispose of them. Control works very well. To remove the stick figures, you simply use your finger to flick them up into the air, allowing gravity to take its course on th…
