Review Tag Games Limited By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
Astro Ranch Review

Space farming! Oh no, we're not talking about mining asteroids, or growing some kind of moon cheese, but a farming simulator... in space!

Everything is done by the touch of a finger. Walking, selecting farming implements, buying new seeds, and equipment, and even talking to the locals. When you start off, you don't ha…

When your frog faces the next lily pad, tap the screen to jump, and that's it! Lilys will turn in different directions, and skipping a lily pad on your hop will g…

Colorbind Review

Review Nonverbal By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 9 months ago
Colorbind Review

Puzzle games are one of the most successful genres on the app store. Many of them are unique and well made, and that's good, cause it takes an interesting idea to stand out from the crowd. Colorbind is an interesting idea where you have to fold strips of paper to cover all the dots of the same colour on the screen. Control is taken care by the touch and drag of your finger. You guide the paper along the screen, changing direction to fold it ninety degrees. To undo the paper trail, sim…

Araxium Review

Review Kijomagi Day By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Araxium Review

Araxium is Kijomagi Day's first major game for the App Store and with its colorful style and unique game concept it could have been a major hit. Sadly what could have been a great idea is hampered by incomplete gameplay. The idea is simple, each level requires a specific color pattern to be made with gems that appear in the center of the game's grid. Touching a location will sling the gem into place. All patterns seem to be horizontal and a specific amount of matches is required to co…

Robot Rampage Review

Review Origin8 By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 9 months ago
Robot Rampage Review

Rampage was a lot of fun. Choosing a giant lizard, gorilla, or wolfman and destroying cities for no reason kept gamers playing for a very long time. The basic idea has now been revitalized for the iphone, and instead of a giant animal, you're a giant robot! Yes the point of the game is to see how many city blocks you can destroy before the army ends your reign of carnage. You have a few attacks in your arsenal. Tapping and holding on screen fires your eye laser which will be your main…

Drift Sumi-e Review

Review Objectify LLC By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 9 months ago
Drift Sumi-e Review

Drawrace was an interesting concept. Draw a line with your finger around the track, and then see how fast your car gets to the finish line. Drift Sumi-e takes this mechanic and combines drifting cars with the elegance of Japanese sumi-e brush painting. Control is quite basic. When presented with the track, you draw a line from start to finish, avoiding the red trouble spots of the track. After you're finished, the game will go into race mode as your car drifts through the turns you la…
