SimCity™ Deluxe Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
SimCity™ Deluxe Review

If you're wondering where SimCity on the App Store went, well here it is again with a fresh coat of paint as SimCity Deluxe. Perhaps that's being unfair though as where SimCity felt absolutely tragic to play, SimCity Deluxe corrects and improves the game to near pristine levels and is certainly a welcome update from Electronic Arts. If you're unfamiliar with the SimCity series, your single aim is to create a successful city, managing its development and tweaking things to ensure your…

Pool Bar - Online Hustle Review

Review Future Games of London By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Pool Bar - Online Hustle Review

Sometimes it's nice to keep things simple and elegant; no strings attached, just a game you can casually chip away at while passing the time. Pool Bar HD by Future Games of London is just that, a simple no frills Pool simulator. But don't be fooled, they haven't skimped on the details that count and by all means this is a truly gorgeous game to play. Once you've selected from the available 9 Ball, US 8 Ball and UK 8 Ball variants you're placed behind a cue and can slowly but surely ch…

RISK Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
RISK Review

Well here it is. The real thing. After an official partnering between Hasbro and Electronic Arts we now have the first legitimate 'RISK' title for the App Store, but was it really worth the wait when so many competitors already roaming the same territory? It's a natural question to ask, especially considering there have been variations on the 'world domination' board-game gameplay since the iPhone was released. Gameplay follows the strict basic rulings of the board game and players ca…

Zen Bound® 2 Universal Review

Review Secret Exit Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Zen Bound® 2 Universal Review

We've walked down this path before; there's a quiet sense of guilt in taking pleasure over tying up inanimate objects with rope. Zen Bound 2 by Secret Exit builds upon their already excellent title by pushing iDevices to their visual limits while adding more content and modes to enjoy. The key to mastering Zen Bound is simplicity in itself, with smooth and intuitive gestures allowing players to twist each object in the ultimate goal of painting it from a neutral wooden state. Swiping…

Magnetic Shaving Derby Review

Review Nyarlu Labs By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Magnetic Shaving Derby Review

After checking out the screenshots for Magnetic Shaving Derby (MSD) you'd be forgiven for steering clear, opting not to jump in to what clearly looks like a crazy title. Nyarlu Labs have succeeded in distilling iconic and random concepts in to a title that's easy to play and fun to experience. Players can choose between touch or tilt controls for their magnet, however thanks to the way the physics simulation works neither one is truly superior to the other. Dragging your magnet around…

Mummy Panic Review

Review Christopher Sisk By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Mummy Panic Review

Chu-Chu Rocket lives again as Christopher Sisk and his latest release Mummy Panic revive this crazy puzzle gameplay for the App Store. Your job is to rescue the hapless mummies as they amble around the screen, guiding them towards the safety of a conveniently placed crate. The mummies and their nemesis the 'Explorers' will automatically move their way around the levels, turning to the right each time they hit a hard surface. Pitfalls, traps, switches and other objects will need to be…

Train Conductor 2: USA Review

Review The Voxel Agents By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
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…

Super Laser: The Alien Fighter Review

Super Laser: The Alien Fighter Review

EpicForce, the developers behind 'Super Laser: The Alien Fighter' compare their new shoot'em-up to the classic days of Arcade titles that would have punters popping quarters in, one after the other, just to master them. It shouldn't come as a surprise, but this is hardly hyperbole considering that this comes from the same team that developed 'iFighter', a real high water mark for SHMUPs on the AppStore. Players can take their pick of three basic control styles, maneuvering their ships…

Aqueduct Review

Review Kieffer Bros. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Aqueduct Review

If there's anything that the Kieffer Bros. excel at, it's the polished design work that goes in to their games. Aqueduct, their latest puzzle title, shows no less polish and combined with their 'Pipe Mania'-come-sliding-puzzle gameplay it's easy to get addicted. Each puzzle requires players to link up each faucet with the drains on the level without leaking water. Each tile can be moved within the confines of an open floor-space, while sliding tiles, teleporters, switches and conveyor…

1942: FIRST STRIKE Review

1942: FIRST STRIKE Review

Before titles like Street Fighter or Mega Man dominated the market for Capcom, 1942 was tearing up the Arcades and carried on as a popular series of shoot'em-ups. Recently the series had a revival on the XBox Live Arcade as a 3D amalgamation of the previous titles and now fans of the series can play a retro-remix of this title on their iDevices with '1942: FIRST STRIKE'. Players can switch between tilt-to-move or touch-and-swipe controls for maneuvering one of three available planes.…

Guitar Hero Review

Guitar Hero Review

It seems that when it rains at Activision, you can expect triple-A titles to pour on to the App Store. The (in)famous Guitar Hero franchise has landed on the iPhone and has almost literally blown the opposition out of the water with years of rhythm game design being packed in to this dense little App. Gamers will get a chance to play the guitar and bass in this title, giving you more bang for your buck as you attempt to master each instrument and unlock new instruments and outfits to…

The Package Review

Review Rock Pocket AS By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
The Package Review

It has been a while since I've tried my hand at a serious physics puzzle app, so it was great to get my hands on Rock Pocket's latest release, The Package. Your objective is to ensure that a single box makes its way to a small platform on each level, but the added challenge of dealing with interference from mechanisms in the level and attempting to collect all the bonuses makes this a treat to enjoy. Each level can be explored by dragging your finger around the screen, while pinching…

Connext Review

Review Josh Nadelberg By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Connext Review

If you owned a personal computer in the early 90s you might just remember a good old classic like Pipe Mania (also known as Pipe Dreams). This puzzler required players to lay down a path of pipes to reach a goal, sometimes with hilariously convoluted results. Connext by Josh Nadelberg is a game with roots in Pipe Mania and is just as addictive as ever. Players are given a large hexagonal grid to lay out the tiles randomly assigned to them. The field can be dragged around or zoomed in…

Review Polarbit By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
ToonWarz Review

FPS' on the iphone can be problomatic. No matter how well they're made, a bad control scheme can be a death sentence. That's kind of Toonwarz in a nutshell. Either playing through the single player campaign or the multiplayer, your enjoyment of this title depends on whether or not you can come to grips with the controls. There are two schemes available. Both technically use twin control sticks, it's just the default scheme hides the look stick and adds the shoot and jump button around…

Review Origin8 By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
AirBear Review

'How far can you get?' games are quite popular. You can load them up, try and beat your high score and be on your merry way. Airbear by Origin8 Technolgies tries to combine the reach the stars gameplay of games like Doodle Jump, with trampolines. If you're playing through the Homeward Bound mode, there are also puzzle pieces in each area to collect that will unlock the bear's propeller hat. Control takes some time to get used to, and even then it can be frustrating. Trampolines are cr…
