Skipping Stone Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Skipping Stone Review

Despite already having a few titles dedicated to the 'Skipping Stone' series, it seems that iOS gamers are only now being introduced to this classic game from GAMEVIL's archives. Given its Java past it's no surprise to see this endless arcade title keeping things simple, but trying to keep an anthropomorphic stone in the air isn't an easy task. Originally, players had to traverse around the world, encountering various creatures in an attempt to find the stone's lost love. While the st…

Tiny Wings Review

Review Andreas Illiger By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Tiny Wings Review

UPDATE: It seems I must have been having internet issues, but leaderboards do exist for Openfeint for this title, however Game Center is not yet implemented, though is on its way. Elegance in gameplay is a hard concept to nail down, but sometimes minimalism in gameplay can have more of an impact than any flashy button-mashing action title could ever dream to accomplish. With little more than a single tap to control a near-flightless bird, Tiny Wings by Andreas Illiger evokes instants…

JellyCar 3 Review

Review Disney By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
JellyCar 3 Review

The JellyCar series has finally spawned a new sequel and unlike 2009's deviation in style, this release by Walaber and Disney has returned to the whacky time-trial racing in the (now) free original title. With little more than your moxxy, a world made out of jellow and a few power-ups, you'll need to take on a variety of levels in an attempt to complete them in the fastest time possible. Tapping the sides of the screen will accelerate or brake in the direction indicated, while tipping…

Sentinel 3: Homeworld Review

Review Origin8 By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Sentinel 3: Homeworld Review

Sentinel 3: Homeworld by Origin8 is a powerful new entry in to the 'Sentinel' series of tower defense titles and not only does it demonstrate a level of visual polish that's stunning, it shows a cunning amount of gameplay depth as players slowly work their way through a challenging campaign. Homeworld fits in to the classic style of tower defense games, with towers being locked in to fixed positions around the winding paths that the enemy creeps follow. There's a strong focus on minim…

Portaball Review

Review Bartosz Ciechanowski By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Portaball Review

There's no doubt that I've probably missed other attempts at re-conceptualizing Valve's seminal FPS puzzler Portal in to a top down puzzler, but Portaball by Bartosz Ciechanowski is one of the first I've come across and as mind-benders go it doesn't hold back on the challenge. You'll be slowly introduced to new objects over 50 currently available levels that will change the behavior of a frictionless ball as it bounces around the puzzle environment. Certain specific walls can have one…

Dark Nebula - Episode Two Review

Dark Nebula - Episode Two Review

'Dark Nebula - Episode 2' by 1337 Game Design is the latest in the Dark Nebula series to grace the App Store and fans of the original can expect bigger and better things from this self-proclaimed Labyrinth 'on steroids'. Dark Nebula places you in control of an orb traveling through six different environments and 19 levels, tilting your way through dangerous trap filled zones and in a new twist you'll also be able to bring the fight to your enemies with a brand new combat system. The t…

Sailor Dog Review

Sailor Dog Review

If you told me to try playing a game about a dog bouncing on the back of a swan in an origami-styled theme I'd have looked at you funny, then said 'yes', if only out of sheer curiosity. In Sailor Dog by Andreas Johansson you'll be bouncing around the ocean collecting balloon suspended bones while dodging catfish and other creatures out to sink your adventure. The basic gameplay is not unlike a vertical endless jumper, with your dog bouncing off the swan's head and anything else he can…

Fastar! Review

Review Cat in a Box Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Fastar! Review

If you're a fan of RPGs and especially action RPGs then there's no more to say about Fastar! than to go and check it out now. For everyone else that still needs convincing, Fastar! by Cat in a Box Games is a side-scrolling genre parody of RPG and action titles and from the very moment you start playing you're in for a treat. Like so many RPGs you're placed in control of an anonymous slayer-of-things with a suitably oversized weapon in tow on a quest to go as far right as possible. The…

Drift Mania Championship Gold Review

Review Ratrod Studio Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Drift Mania Championship Gold Review

I honestly don't get the attraction to drift racing, which is odd considering its popularity with many of my friends and indeed around the world. However, after spending time with Drift Mania Championship by Ratrod Studio I came close to understanding and if nothing else it's an impressive title at a bargain price that most racing fans should find hard to ignore. Drifting, as the game points out, is the sport of being in control of being out of control. The interface is amazingly eleg…

iFlexis Review

Review Thumbstar Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
iFlexis Review

Wrapping your head around iFlexis by Thumbstar Games is a little hard, but if you were to combine Tetris with bouncy physics and a three-match game you'd at least be in the right vicinity. At first glance, the comparison to Tetris is immediately apparent, with familiarly shaped block configurations of various colors descending in to place at the bottom of the screen. However, once the objects are touched they come to life with a bouncy rubbery feel that can be swung around your finger…

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.…

Oddy Smog's Misadventure Review

Review Medusa By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Oddy Smog's Misadventure Review

Poor Oddy Smog; he's no longer willing to be a part of the 'system' and now he's trying to escape the 'Smog that Engulfs Everything'. Oddy Smog's Misadventure is a charming endless vertical platformer by Medusa that tugs at your heart while challenging you to navigate the endless gear-strewen corridors of his vertical prison. Players can hold on to various rotating gears as they climb by touching anywhere on the right side of the screen, while tapping the left side allows Oddy Smog to…

Juggle! Review

Review Denki By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Juggle! Review

It's been shown time and again, but sometimes the simplest of ideas can be the most powerful. Juggle! by Denki has stripped back the old brick-and-paddle gameplay (think Arcanoid) to it's basic level, bouncing objects - often many at a time - off a tiny moveable paddle. Juggle! is played in a vertical orientation, with a relatively small paddle that quickly moves across the bottom of the screen at the lightest touch. At first this feels excessive and awkward, but additional balls cont…

Promini Review

Review Eltima Software By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Promini Review

What you see is almost exactly what you get when you look at Promini by Eltima Software. In gameplay and style this is yet another take on the Lumines gameplay, however its few added twists might just enough to soften even jaded gamers in to giving this title a try. There are no virtual sticks or buttons in sight for Promini, which means you'll be relying on the good old swipe and tap combinations to quickly navigate your puzzle piece in to place. Matched blocks of 2x2 or greater will…

2XL TROPHYLITE Rally Review

Review 2XL Games, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
2XL TROPHYLITE Rally Review

2XL Games are no stranger to the odd sports racing title on the App Store and are well known for their visual quality and smooth controls. So it almost goes without saying that if you're a fan of their previous titles, 2XL TROPHYLITE Rally might already tickle your fancy. There are three major control schemes to choose from, with left and right variants for two of these and coupled with 2XL's steering assist you'll be clocking times like a professional in no time. The tilt-based optio…
