Ion Racer Review

Review MindJolt By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Ion Racer Review

Perhaps it's an unfair expectation, but upon hearing the title, we expected a sub-atomic racer where electrons and protons sped past each other, the winners gaining atomic and molecular supremacy. What we have is a free to play Wipeout-esque hover racer that plays out like an endless runner on an extended track to nowhere. With some manipulation of time and plenty of upgrades, lets see how this handles as a game. Control is standard iPhone racer fare. Tilting turns you left and right…

On The Wind Review

Review Don't Step On The Cracks By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
On The Wind Review

As summer nods off into winter, the trees lose their leaves in autumn. This is a cycle of nature, but sometimes adhering to the natural order doesn't make for a good videogame, so On the Wind mixes things up a little bit. In this spin on the endless runner genre you need to take a group of leaves through as many seasonal changes as you can, controlling the omnipotent wind that will either carry these tree remnants through the challenges they face, or leave them to bloom into flowers up…

Find the Princess – Top Free Maze Game Review

Find the Princess – Top Free Maze Game Review

Mazes are interesting. As a child, Dave couldn't get enough of mazes, plowing through books and books of more and more complex and intricate maze-y challenges. When videogames started taking his spare time however, the mazes presented did not illicit the same reaction of fun and wonder. Instead there was only tedium and frustration (the basement of 'The 7th Guest being one such annoying memory). Perhaps the difference between mazes on paper and mazes in videogames is one of perception.…

Review Interwave Studios B.V. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
rComplex Review

The App Store isn't hurting for variety in its gameplay. While some gamers bemoan the inevitable slew of titles that ride the coat-tails of a successful franchise, the upshot is a refinement of the gameplay in to something resembling a genre. As such there are often minimum expectations for such games, especially when so many have tried and failed already, making large missteps hard to forgive. rComplex by Interwave Studios has sadly fallen in to this situation and while its unbelieva…

AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! (Force = Mass x Acceleration) Review

Review Dejobaan Games, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! (Force = Mass x Acceleration) Review

Elegance is a word you have to use when you describe a game like 'Aaaa!!! F=ma' by Dejobaan Games and Owlchemy Labs, if only because it takes such a compact and simple concept (falling) and turns it in to something so utterly addictive that you will wonder how you managed to do without playing the game any sooner. Those who have played the original PC and Mac version 'A Reckless Disregard for Gravity' may wonder if the word 'elegant' is entirely appropriate given the game's somewhat ra…

Blot Review

Review Majestic Software By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 8 months ago
Blot Review

A lot of the time it can be hard to be a fair when you see so many instances of the same game. The trick then becomes to look for the innovative or failing that, what the title has to offer in terms of fun. Blot is essentially Jetpack Joyride taking place on a student's school notebook full of sketches. It is this setting however that provides the angle for which reviewing yet another Jetpack Joyride clone can be tackled. You control a blot of ink weaving its way through the hazards o…

Run Roo Run Review

Review 5TH Cell By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Run Roo Run Review

Run Roo Run by 5TH Cell Media is almost daunting to approach at first - with 420 levels initially available you'd be wondering how on Earth you'd manage to complete it all. Thankfully each level only takes a few seconds to complete, though in fairness the first 300 levels are really just the teaser to real challenge of this one-touch platforming game. This cute and vibrant cartoonish title is split in to 20 chapters and follows the journey of a kangaroo out to save its kidnapped joey.…

Super Crate Box Review

Review Vlambeer By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Super Crate Box Review

Too often gamers bring down the mighty wrath of the collective community down upon a game for being a 'clone'. While sometimes justified (especially if artistic theft is involved), more often than not gamers are simply witnessing the natural progression of any new idea to mass production and eventual refinement in to a genre. Super Crate Box by Vlambeer and Halfbot is arguably the progenitor of its particular flavor and style of arcade action-platforming, but with competitors already m…

Blueprint 3D Review

Review FDG Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Blueprint 3D Review

Solving a jigsaw puzzle is a pastime that has survived for generations and may well continue to see its appeal in to the future as fans of the simple time-waster test their observation skills to match and piece together beautiful images one jagged piece at a time. Blueprint 3D by FDG Mobile Games pushes the limits of the concept by taking imagery and blowing it up in to dozens, if not hundreds of fragments ballooned out in to a 3D space and it's up to you to reassemble it in mere secon…

EPOCH. Review

Review Uppercut Games Pty Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
EPOCH. Review

When small indie game studios boast about their prior professional experience it's generally a PR move to inspire confidence in what they're presenting. What really counts is the final product and in the case of Uppercut Games and their release of EPOCH., the experience and polish that comes from their years in the industry really shows in almost every aspect of the game. You play as an AI controlled robot (think slightly less horrifying than a Terminator, but no less deadly) with a m…

Turtle Slide™ Review

Turtle Slide™ Review

Style versus substance. As reviewers and gamers, substance usually wins the battle. No matter how beautiful the graphics or amazing the sound, a shallow gameplay experience will wear out its welcome quickly. That's not to say these experiences are altogether bad, it's just you need to know what you're getting yourself into. Turtle Slide is an endless runner, or an endless slider as would be the case in this instance. As a turtle on an ice world, you need to jump, collect coins, and do…

Bike Baron Review

Bike Baron Review

Bike Baron by Qwiboo and Mountain Sheep is not the first to strap a happy-go-lucky stunt driver in to a vehicle and point them towards a lethal combination of ramps and explosives, nor will it be the last. What it lacks in original concept it makes up for with sheer polished gameplay and design, going so far as to also include the iOS community in the process of level creation. If you're looking for a storyline, you're sorely out of luck as the Bike Baron is simply a daredevil without…

KATAMARI Amore Review

KATAMARI Amore Review

Games within the KATAMARI series by Namco Bandai very rarely need an introduction as the setup is quite usually always the same: The King of All Cosmos has his eyes set upon collecting various interesting and wonderful objects from planet Earth and the poor 5cm tall Prince must roll it up in his 'Katamari' to satisfy the King's desire. What makes Amore so exciting is that it's not the first Katamari game to hit the App Store, so expectations are high when you consider how much more raw…
