Exodus Review

Review Tip Tap Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Exodus Review

It's hard not to make the comparison between Exodus by Tip Tap Games and other line drawing management games like Flight Control, but you'd be selling this game short if you thought it was just a simple draw-and-forget title. You'll need to manage various ships as they drop off their payload of colonists to various space-stations around the universe and you'll need keen timing to make use of the limited docking space and avoid environmental hazards out to ruin your day. Once a ship is…

RollOut Review

Review Bulkypix By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
RollOut Review

For most puzzle platformers you'll be put in control of a character that's subject to the whims of a cruel environment that can push, block and direct you towards various traps. In Rollout by Bulkypix you get to reverse the roles, taking control of the environment to bounce, speed up and slow down an adorable ball of fluff called Wabba as he makes his way to each exit. Once Wabba warps in to each level he'll curl up and start rolling until you've completed the level, leaving you to sh…

Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 2 Review

Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 2 Review

Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 2 by Activision and developers Polarbit has improved on what was already a decent, if out-dated Mario Kart style racer, making it a great, fun arcade experience for your iPhone. Players have the option of choosing between tilt or virtual steering controls via the menu and both work fantastically, providing smooth control for each kart. Those after more finesse might prefer the virtual controls, but the tilt controls do make the game far more entertaining to…

Spectre 3D Review

Spectre 3D Review

It's no surprise for some old-school gamers, but Spectre for Macintosh computers in the early 90s is noteable for being one of the first multiplayer network games available. Brilliant Bytes Software have resurrected the original and VR versions of Spectre for the iPhone generation and with a few modern touches it's still a perfect way to blast away your spare time. When played in classic Spectre mode, players are given a virtual stick to move forward, backwards and to turn left or rig…

100 Rogues Review

Review Fusion Reactions By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
100 Rogues Review

100 Rogues has been a year and a half in the making, but developers Dinofarm Games have finally reached the finish line with their Rogue-like dungeon crawler for the App Store. This is a game of wit and survival and certainly shouldn't be taken lightly by those after a true RPG challenge. The controls are intuitive and respond to basic screen touches to move or attack depending on what you highlight. Skill trees are available to each class and provide access to abilities that wi…

Monster Trucks Nitro 2 Review

Yeeehaw! I lurves me some Monster Trucks! But in all seriousness, who doesn't get a little bit excited by these oversized vehicular behemoths and their destructive powers? Maybe you've never thought about it, but Monster Trucks Nitro 2 by RedLynx will make a believer of you as you flip, boost and smash your way to first place in this side-scrolling tilt racer. Once you've signed yourself up to a race you're slapped straight down in to a side-on view of your beastly ride. Acceleration…

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.

Artilect Pro Review

Review Yuri Brigance By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 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…

Sailboat Championship PRO Review

Review Infinite Dreams Inc. By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 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…

Ice Bullet Review

Review David Fernandez Vara By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Ice Bullet Review

If there's one thing certain about the Olympics (summer or winter), is that there will be many videogames made to capatilize on the events. Bobsleigh is one such event that seems like a good idea for a videogame and a great idea for an iphone game, especially using tilt controls. Ice Bullet sets out to deliver a Bobsleigh experience on the iphone, but does it replicate the speed and danger of its real life counterpart? Control is tilt based, with leaning forward used for braking aroun…


Chromixa Review

Review Wet Nose Design Ltd By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Chromixa Review

Chromixa began life as an art installation based on creator Simon Watson's fascination with light. A handful of development time later and we have a light based puzzle game for the iphone. The goal is to create shapes of a solid colour out of overlaying smaller pieces of different colours, much like a jigsaw. Control is all touch and drag. Upon touching a piece, it can be dragged anywhere on screen or the large wheel can be used to rotate it. If you ever get confused about which colou…

Fox Vs Duck Review

Review supermono limited By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago

A hungry fox is circling your pond and you need to escape before the fish swimming around starts to get hungry. How many ducks can you save within the time limit? Control is entirely tilt based. Each new duck appears in the middle of the pond and the calibration is then reset. The controls work but there are sensitivity issues. As the game progres…

Chalkboard Stunts Review

Review Manta Research By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 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…

Spirit Review

Review Marco Mazzoli By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Spirit Review

The Geometry Wars look has been popular for many games. With its neon glows and burts of light, it's very visually pleasing. Spirit is a game that utilizes this visual style to put you in the shoes of a ghost wrangler. Yes, a ghost who wrangles, oh, and who doesn't wear shoes. You control this ghost with your finger, moving him elegantly around the screen. The sensitivity might be a problem for some people, but it is adjustable in the options, and the movement is very fluid regardless…

Shopping Cart Hero Review

Review MonkeyWantBanana By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Shopping Cart Hero Review

Fresh from its popular digs on the internet, Shopping Cart Hero (SCH) is based off Monkey Want Banana's second Flash-based game. With groupies in tow and a sombrero firmly wedged on your scalp SCH is a catapult style game with a twist. On top of the basic upgrading to launch faster, higher and further, SCH quickly adds a trick-based scoring system that really defines the gameplay. As you roll down your launch ramp you're provided with two checkpoints to boost your speed, affecting the…
