Air Force vs Luftwaffe Review

Review Bitmen Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Air Force vs Luftwaffe Review

Although we've been here before, side-scrolling dogfighting sims aren't exactly floating around in a huge supply and while games like MiniSquadron ruled the roost in the past, Air Force vs Luftwaffe by Bitmen Studios tries to help the genre grow-up. Injecting a bit of realism in to the proceedings helps immensely as each plane smoothly tumbles and turns its way around the screen, responding to the tilt and touch controls crisply. Acceleration is also affected by gravity, causing plane…

Destructopus: Total Rampage! Review

Review GlitchSoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Destructopus: Total Rampage! Review

There's something about giant monsters and explosive weaponry that just feels right - maybe it's just the whole Horror B-Movie aspect of it all, but I think everyone's inclined to imagine thrashing about causing wanton destruction now and then. Destructopus by GlitchSoft tries to put a positive spin on the actions of the giant be-tentacled behemoth wreaking havoc across the countryside as you attempt to crush the humans who would exploit the endangered species of the planet. It may be…

Laser Dolphin Review

Review Dingo Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Laser Dolphin Review

If Ecco the Dolphin was stripped of its Adventure/Metroidvania style of gameplay and was given an Action overhaul you'd probably end up with something a little like Laser Dolphin by Dingo Games. Much like their first App Store release (Tasty Planet), Laser Dolphin isn't much to look at - the designs are functional instead of aesthetically pleasing, but don't make the mistake of thinking this means the gameplay is lacking. No, flipping out across the level as an agile dolphin while tap…

Foodies Review

Review Nano Titans Co. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Foodies Review

Maybe I'm a jaded old-soul, but there are few moments where I catch myself actually smiling, let alone laughing out loud at blatantly silly things. Yet, loading up Foodies by Nano Titans and being introduced to the game's main character did just this, coloring the game with a tinge of glee and amusement. Foodies takes advantage of the platform it's on by providing controls and a style of gameplay that's unique to a touch-screen, adding a novelty factor that is delightful all by itself…

Jump Out!™ Review

Review Avallon Alliance Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Jump Out!™ Review

Some may lead and others may follow, but in either case when it comes to video games the winner is always the consumer. While Jump Out! by Avallon Alliance has shades of Cut The Rope slathered all over it, I really can't bring myself to be upset – honestly, who can remain upset looking at those insanely adorable bugs. Players will find themselves traversing through 60 currently available levels over two environments, flinging bugs from the safety of their rotating bottle-caps an…

Who’s That Flying?! Review

Who’s That Flying?! Review

Perhaps I'm a glutton for punishment or maybe there's something bizarrely attractive about its simple, clean presentation, but Who's That Flying?! by Mediatonic and Beeline Interactive is proving harder to put down than I first expected. Considering its difficulty level you'd naturally assume that time would only dull the experience, giving you more reasons to not load it up, but with each attempt you'll manage to claw your way to victory as Earth's super-powered defender. Being a sup…

Gears Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Gears Review

From classics such as Marble Madness to modern titans like Super Monkey Ball, rolling a ball around a perilous maze isn't likely to leave us any time soon, especially when Labyrinth-style games fit so well with the iDevice's tilt-based control system. Gears by Crescent Moon Games combines visual excellence with some devious level designs, however it's the lack of emphasis on the tilt-controls that makes this a truly enjoyable gaming experience. While players can turn on tilt-controls,…

Fast Five the Movie: Official Game Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Fast Five the Movie: Official Game Review

Recently The Onion did a small skit about the latest car-porn film Fast & Furious 5, taking the usual pot-shot at the action extravaganza by claiming the script was written by a small child obsessed with explosions. However no one truly expects to see an action film like this for high-art; it's all about the mindless over-the-top antics, scantily clad women and tight-shirt wearing men as they defy physics for 90 minutes. So it's no surprise that Fast Five by Gameloft is an unashame…

Robot Wants Kitty Review

Review Raptisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Robot Wants Kitty Review

Some may know Raptisoft by their somewhat darker 'Solomon' series of Action-RPG titles, but Robot Wants Kitty developed with Hamumu Software explores a somewhat softer side as you follow the adventures of a single-minded robot on a quest to upgrade, destroy and hug. For those up with their gaming parlance the game fits within the Metroidvania style of games. For those who want to believe they're not so embedded in gaming culture, this simply means you'll find yourself controlling the…

Death Rally Review

Death Rally Review

While gamers are likely to recognize and associate Remedy Entertainment with titles like Max Payne and Alan Wake, those who were lucky enough to be a PC gamer in the 90's might remember the original Death Rally and its top-down Death Race 2000 inspired mayhem. While not as fully featured as some racers, the arcade-style classic has been reborn on the App Store and players can get back to what's truly important in a race - blowing people up. However, before you can start causing some r…

iStunt 2 - Snowboard Review

Review Miniclip.com By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
iStunt 2 - Snowboard Review

Although Winter may be coming to an end, there's no reason to pack in your hopes for enjoying the snow slopes with a bit of snowboarding action thanks to iStunt 2 by Miniclip. Although I should point out that anyone trying to perform the stunts in this game in real life should probably be committed, but hey... what's to stop someone from accidentally inventing a gravity reversing machine in the process. While the early levels of the 42 currently available set a fairly relaxed and mayb…

Pig Rockets Review

Review Camigo Media LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Pig Rockets Review

What does rocket fuel, Tetris, bacon and the castle defense genre have in common? More times than not I'd say they don't really have anything in common, but if you're playing Pig Rockets by Camigo Media you'd be surprised at just how relevant they all are. Wave after wave of rocket-controlled piggies are attempting to blow up your house, barn, dog-house, mansion (and so on) and you'll need to put your Tetris skills to work in order to create barriers that will crush their advance.

Collision Effect Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Collision Effect Review

I'm not sure why the orbs in Collision Effect by Chillingo and Vishindo needed to be named anything at all, but if you were wondering, they're called Zybbles. Zybbles need to collide with one another, but they can only collide with Zybbles of the same color, so you'll need impeccable timing and keen spacial recognition skills to either beat your high-score or to solve the puzzle you're currently on. I think I'll just call them orbs from now on yeah? Much of what makes Collision Effec…

Sky Combat Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Sky Combat Review

With so many shoot'em-ups (SHMUP) taking the fantasy/over-the-top bullet-hell approach of late, it's great to see a title like Sky Combat from Alien Worm and Chillingo pulling things back to a slightly more realistic level. That isn't to say Sky Combat is strictly about realism, but it treads a delicate balance that forces players to react quickly and efficiently without needing to worry about memorizing various bullet patterns. Over the course of the short campaign you'll not only co…

JellyCar 3 Review

Review Disney By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 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…
