Flick Bowling 2 Review

Review Freeverse, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Flick Bowling 2 Review

If Doc Brown from Back To The Future had a crazy German half-brother, he'd be Baron Von Schtopwatch, the mad professor who hassles Jim and Jen at their local bowling alley. Stay with me on this one because it gets weirder. Your goal is to return to the modern day while challenging figures from history after Von Schtopwatch sends you back to ancient Egypt. Storyline aside, Flick Bowling 2 by Freeverse is a strange beast to handle. The "true to life" physics as the developers put it mak…

iJumpman Review

Review Andi McClure By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
iJumpman Review

In this day and age with our new fangled technologies and high processing power game systems, sometimes its nice to go back to basics. What's even nicer is if you go back to platforming and put a new spin on things. In iJumpman you control a man straight out of the Atari 2600 as he strives to jump over obstacles and find the exit. The most important aspect of a platformer to get right are the controls, and this is where iJumpman fails. There are two schemes, a touch scheme and buttons…

Devil Invasion Review

Review TOUCHMINE CO.LTD By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
Devil Invasion Review

By now we've not only seen a slew of Bejeweled style games on the iphone, we've also seen games use Bejeweled as a mechanic for other types of gameplay. Devil Invasion is one of these games. Wrapping gem matching up in a castle defense coating, makes for a very interesting play. At the start of each level you can assign three skills to your character (which can be bought and upgraded). These spells require mana which is collected by playing the match three game during the level. This…

Cosmo Kid: Bounce the Galaxy! Review

Review Pear Computer, LLP By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
Cosmo Kid: Bounce the Galaxy! Review

Bounce bounce bounce! Cosmo Kid wants to see the stars and visit far off worlds. With the help of his elastic band and the mysterious but friendly Kukkaja flower people, he might just make it on his journey. The elastic used to bounce Cosmo into the heavens is drawn on screen with your finger. It can be drawn in a straight line or a curve, which affects the speed and direction of Cosmo depending on how he hit it. The higher you fly, the more Kukkaja you meet. Some are obstacles, but o…

Electric Box Review

Review Candystand.com By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
Electric Box Review

Games like 'The Incredible Machine' were great fun as you got to use a bunch of simple objects to manipulate your way to a goal. Electric Box is quite similar, only the goal is to transfer the flow of electricity from the on switch to the target using different kinds of energy conductors and transferal devices. Control is all touch and drag. The puzzles are layed out on a grid, and all the objects (from steam machines to magnets to lasers) can be placed anywhere, tapped on for a descr…

Artilect Pro Review

Review Yuri Brigance By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
Artilect Pro Review

Artilect by Atomic Cactus is a puzzle game in which you take turns against a human or AI controlled opponent, trying to change the colour of orbs to reach your opponent's goal. It's also very difficult as the AI is brutal even on the early stages. What then is it, that makes this game so hard to put down? Control is all touch based. Each level consists of green orbs between the two goals, with the game starting in the middle. Upon touching a green orb, you change it to your colour, dr…

Cubetrix 3D Review

Review Mobicle Co.,Ltd. By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
Cubetrix 3D Review

Did you ever play a match three gem game and think, "I want these colours to be in cubes that i can push from the outside?" No? Well too bad cause that's what Cubetrix 3D is. Those tricky cubes need to be pushed to form lines of three of the same colour which will then explode, sending the rest careening together, hopefully leading to more explosions. Ok, so maybe the tone is a little melodramatic, but that's the basic idea. There are three buttons on screen. Two are used to move the…

Sailboat Championship PRO Review

Review Infinite Dreams Inc. By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
Sailboat Championship PRO Review

Do you fancy yourself nautically minded? Do you watch the America's Cup every year? If so, i assume you're a fan of sailing, and if that is the case, you should probably check out Sailboat Championship Pro, a game where you must control your yacht around a course in order to achieve the fastest lap times possible. There are multiple levels of control from manning the sails, to steering, but you can have the computer handle the sails while you concentrate on catching the wind. These co…

Review Ubisoft By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
Dawn of Discovery - Harbor Review

Dawn of Discovery is the latest installment in the Anno series, a game that focuses on resource management with a touch of real time strategy. This iphone port takes one element of the PC release and creates a very addictive time manangement game through thirty six missions. As the harbour master, it is your duty to manage traders to make your daily quota and expand your business. Everything is controlled by touching and dragging. Traders queue up to enter your harbour, and you choose…

WireWay Review

WireWay Review

Parachute Ninja delighted fans with its flicking off springs gameplay, but before the adventures of that stealthy ball, there was Wire Way. You play as Wiley, a cute little creature who is springing through levels to collect stars full of the precious energy Elan. When Wiley is attached to a spring, pulling back will prime him for take off. A guide will show your arc and an indicator of your distance, but it's not foolproof. The goal is to reach the UFO at the end of each level, but t…

Jungle Style Pinball Review

Review OOO Gameprom By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
Jungle Style Pinball Review

From the company that brought you The Deep Pinball, and Wild West Pinball, comes another pinball game. Jungle Style Pinball takes players to an ancient jungle ruin that is frought with peril, but you might just escape with some treasure as you uncover the many secrets within. Like Gameprom's previous pinball games, control of the flippers is acheived by tapping either the left or right side of the screen. You pull back the launcher to initially launch the ball, and you can shake the i…

Raging Thunder 2 Review

Review Polarbit By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 9 months ago
Raging Thunder 2 Review

There are plenty of racing sims on the appstore, but sometimes you just feel like an arcade experience. Raging Thunder 2 has you driving as fast as possible, smashing into things and vying for first place. Earn enough cash and you can purchase new cars, and upgrade them for faster driving, and more intense smashing. Like most iphone racers, acceleration is handled automatically and turning is tilt based. There is a button for braking and one for boosting (and you'll definitely be hold…

Chalkboard Stunts Review

Review Manta Research By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 9 months ago
Chalkboard Stunts Review

In the Alpine Crawler World review, the term physics racer was used. This seems an apt title as any to describe Chalkboard Stunts. Your tiny car has to drive over a landscape of chalk ramps and jumps to get to the raceflag as quickly as possible. Your car is controlled by two arrow buttons on the sides of the screen. One accelerates left, the other right. The buttons above it are for turning your car in air to land correctly, or righting it when you've flipped. At any time, the screen…

Alpine Crawler World Review

Review Dimension Technics By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 9 months ago
Alpine Crawler World Review

It's hard to put Alpine Crawler World (ACW) into a genre. It's part racer, and part physics sim. Like its predecessor, and Moto X Mayhem, you have to finish the race in as short a time as possible, but the terrain, and the bounciness of your vehicle make that a lot harder than it sounds. Control is quite clever. On the left and right of the screen, there are accelerator and brake pedals. You tap them and then drag down to put your foot on them to drive or stop. Any slams to your car w…

Space Box Review

Review Tom Graczyk By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 9 months ago
Space Box Review

What images are conjured up when you hear the name Space box? If you thought of a cardboard box with eyes jumping from platform to platform in the cold depths of space, you are correct. The goal of the game is to get the box to the final platform of each level, preferably in the least moves possible. If there are numbers left on the move counter when you finish the level, you gain extra lives. To move the box, tap it, and drag your finger to set the direction and force of the box's ju…
