Fantasy Conflict Review

Review Gaijin Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Fantasy Conflict Review

When Gainjin Entertainment first approached the well-established Galcon Labs style of RTS-come-castle-defense gameplay, they managed to create something sharp in its execution. With its semi-realistic theme, Modern Conflict required fast reflexes and a fast mind to survive its brutal challenges. The studio is back with something slightly less realistic in Fantasy Conflict, and while there's a distinct feeling of deja vu, a lot of effort has gone in to establishing deeper mechanics for…

Review BitMonster, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Lili™ Review

If you’re one of the handful of people who If you’re one of the handful of people who missed out on hearing about Lili by BitMonster, then you’re in for a treat. There was absolutely no question of how beautiful this game was going to be as it not only sports the Unreal Engine, but those who made it are ex-Epic and quite familiar with how to use it. However, what really counts isn’t the presentation, but how it interacts with the gameplay - and on this score the…

Qwak HD iPad Review

Review Mr Qwak Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Qwak HD iPad Review

When we first saw Qwak on the iOS platform it was restricted to the tiny screens of the iPhones and iPods of the world. The lightning-sharp responsiveness of the controls helped to bring the Amiga classic back to life, but with so much going on, screen-space was definitely a concern... until now. Qwak HD makes the best of the iPad, making it a snap to keep track of the busy platforming action while also adding a two-player mode in to the proceedings. This last feature is pulled off fl…

Wizorb Review

Review Tribute Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Wizorb Review

For some it may seem strange to think that brick-breakers were once all the rage, much like physics-flingers like Angry Birds or cutesy puzzlers like Cut the Rope. Wizorb not only pays tribute to this strange era of ball-bouncing, brick-breaking action, but seeks to marry it with action elements, giving you a reason to want to break on through to the other side (as it were). You play as the rather strangely specialized wizard named 'Cyrus' who can transform in to a ball and paddle. Af…

MARVEL VS. CAPCOM 2 Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
MARVEL VS. CAPCOM 2 Review

CAPCOM generally doesn't skimp on the details when it comes to its fighting game releases on the App Store. It seems almost counter-intuitive to think a serious fighting game could be successful on a small touch-screen, but Street Fighter IV has shown that it's not only possible, but also a lot of fun. As such it's almost unfortunate for Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 to feel as rushed as it does, suffering from bloated controls on smaller iDevices and visuals that looked muddied thanks to poor…

Grand Theft Auto 3 Review

Grand Theft Auto 3 Review

Editor's Note: For the sake of transparency, yes, I live in Australia and as such the version of the game played was the 'Australian Edition'. As such no hookers were hurt during the making of this review. Except that one time I decided to use the side-walk as a freeway, but then again who hasn't done that? *police siren* *door cracking in background* I'm sorry officers! I was in a rush, please believe me! Slipping back in to Grand Theft Auto 3 for the first time in almost a decade wa…

Jelly Defense Review

Review Infinite Dreams Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Jelly Defense Review

It seems odd that despite having other games under their belt, the one thing that stands out in my mind from Infinite Dreams is 'Let's Create! Pottery'. It's strange because Pottery is less of a game and more of a toy with some objectives, but more importantly because their Jelly series of mini-games has finally culminated in the recent release of Jelly Defense on the App Store. What's immediately striking about Jelly Defense is the simple, yet perfectly zany aesthetic that uses littl…

Pocket RPG iPhone Edition Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
Pocket RPG iPhone Edition Review

While there are those who wish for nothing more than a juicy RPG that compels them to spend hours mastering skills or defeating labyrinthine dungeons, the iPhone and iPod Touch are arguably not well suited for such epic tales. This hasn't stopped developers from making or fans from loving attempts at bringing classic RPG features to the App Store, but when a developer like Crescent Moon Games thinks outside the box to try something new I have to admit I get a little excited. Pocket RP…

Blobster Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Blobster Review

In Blobster you control 'Blobster' who is trying to save Blobtopia from pollution at the hands of the Big & Powerful Corporation run by the evil Blobzilla. Blobster must collect Blobules - the fuel that keeps Blobtopia running - if he hopes to ever bring Blobzilla and the B&P Corporation down... and if I ever have to say Blob again, it'll be too soon. Blobster is split up into four worlds, each with ten regular levels and a few bonus levels opened by high scores. Each stage co…

QuBIT Review

QuBIT Review

As much as reviewers like to espouse the virtues of video games and (with their critics hat on) even point out why something works, there are games that come by now and then that seem to almost defy deeper analysis. QuBIT by Secret Sauce is, quite simply, a fun game to play and despite only having one mode of play it's an easy game to keep coming back to. The basic premise of QuBIT is to collect as much 'Obscurium' from the planet surface as possible, unfortunately you have a limited…

World of Goo Review

Review 2D BOY By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
World of Goo Review

NOTE: While our site is still indicating the initial discount price of $0.99, the App has returned to its full price of $2.99 as of 15th April 2011. There are few games as easy to recommend for your desktop PC as World of Goo by 2D BOY; while there are similar titles that could be considered more challenging, the charming story and presentation of this game goes a long way to absorb and lock players in. Its eventual release on the iPad was a boon for the iOS device and a great way to…

Zombies : The Last Stand Review

Review Chris Egerter By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Zombies : The Last Stand Review

What's most surprising about trying Zombies : The Last Stand (ZTLS) is that despite its heavy requirements the game just looks and feels so bland. Sure, running around and killing zombies may not have the same exciting flair it used to, but it shouldn't feel like such a chore. ZTLS is set in a first-person perspective and the controls are what you'd expect, with a virtual stick to move on the left, swiping to aim and a fire button in the right corner. Weapons can also be swapped via a…


Dodonpachi Resurrection Review

Review CAVE CO.,LTD. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Dodonpachi Resurrection Review

NOTE: This game requires 3rd gen or higher devices (3GS, iPad, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 32/64gb) - CAVE recommends you try the LITE version when available to confirm compatability if you are unsure. As developer CAVE puts it in their description of Dodonpachi Resurrection, this shoot'em-up (shmup) is bullet heaven. But one man's heaven can be another man's hell so perhaps I should point out that this isn't going to appeal to everyone because 'manic' doesn't quite come close to how inte…

2K Sports NHL 2K11 Review

Review 2K By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
2K Sports NHL 2K11 Review

NOTE: Not currently compatible with 1st Gen iPhone, iPhone 3G or original iPod Touch devices. It has been a while since we've had a chance to dive in to an ice hockey title and it's great to see 2K Sports release of  NHL 2K11 up on the App Store. Ice hockey titles haven't done spectacularly on iDevices to date and it's interesting to see 2K Sports keeping the gameplay in the arcade-style with a basic virtual stick and three button setup for pass, shoot and sprint. What makes thi…

Review WEBER Mobile Games By Drew , 4 years, 4 months ago
Junglestew Review

Whack-a-mole style games have a tendancy to be a bit boring on the App Store, if only because they're an 'easy' idea for those out to make their first title. However, Junglestew by WEBER Mobile Games doesn't mess about and you'll have to be on your A-game to accurately punch out each 'Livingstone' as they attempt to escape the cannibal's stew. What's really surprising about Junglestew is the addition of 21 challenge modes that will test your accuracy and skill for each of the game's a…
