Tasty Planet Review

Review Dingo Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Tasty Planet Review

Tasty Planet by Dingo Games is an adaption of the game of the same name from its desktop PC release. Based in part on the same gameplay concept as Katamari Damacy, you must consume objects that are smaller than you until you grow large enough to consume everything in sight. Life in Tasty Planet starts off in a petri dish, cleaning up dirt as intended, however it's clear that the inventor of this gray-goo didn't design limitations on what could be consumed and it soon escalates out of…

Reiner Knizia's Yoku-Gami Review

Review Meritum Soft d.o.o. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Reiner Knizia's Yoku-Gami Review

With plenty of board games already under his belt, Reiner Knizia has turned his hand at producing a simpler puzzle game for the App Store. Yoku-Gami is the result of this collaboration with developer Meritum Soft and you'll need to put your math-hats on to make headway in this puzzler. Whether you choose the Endless, Arcade or Level mode, the basic gameplay remains the same. Players are presented with a 6x6 grid filled with numbers and to clear them off the board you'll need to select…

Battleheart Review

Review Mika Mobile, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Battleheart Review

Mika Mobile have seemingly made it a habit to explore simple ideas while polishing them in a way that's ideal for mobile gamers. Their latest title Battleheart is certainly no exception and players will have the chance to manage four heroes as they battle foes in real-time combat, earning treasures and powerful skills as they continue on their quest. Swiping and tapping forms the main system of control for your adventurers. Each one can be selected individually and either moved or giv…

Surveillant Review

Review Recluse Industries By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Surveillant Review

One of the joys of the many daily releases of games on the App Store is stumbling upon unexpected titles that are refreshing, original and curiously addictive. Surveillant by Recluse Industries combines the simple challenge of exploring maze-like arenas while avoiding detection from the ever-vigilant surveillance camera and its deadly laser to create a challenge that requires quick thinking and responses to survive each level. Initially the game takes things fairly easy, providing a v…

Miss Claire Garden Review

Review Chris Neveu By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Miss Claire Garden Review

Miss Claire Garden by Chris Neveu is a story of two games - one game that should be forgotten and another that manages to be fairly engaging. The twist is that they're both the same game and a single update in the gameplay makes all the difference between something that is unplayable versus something that is enjoyable. In this Yoshi's Island-inspired platformer, you'll play the role of Claire Garden as she seeks to help the local wildlife and expand her business in square fruits and v…

Cave Bowling Review

Review Donut Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Cave Bowling Review

After a while it's almost comforting to play a game by Donut Games, if only because you know almost exactly what you're getting in to before you even load the game. After loading up Cave Bowling I'm greeted by the same menus, the same options and the same 3-star system common to just about every one of their games, but once you get in to the game it's clear to see that Donut Games are learning some new tricks. Cave Bowling is all about smashing a ball across the screen after setting a…

Football Manager Handheld™ 2011 (US and Japan) Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 12 months ago
Football Manager Handheld™ 2011 (US and Japan) Review

There have been very few games I have actively sought not to play, but I'm almost loathe to admit that Football Manager by SEGA is one of them. I should perhaps caveat that this isn't because I dislike these intensely statistic based games; no, I just know how badly enthralled I am by them - once you're down the rabbit hole you can kiss just about everything else you had on your schedule goodbye. 'Handheld(TM) 2011' is the latest installment in the franchise and the second release for…

Zoo Rescue Review

Zoo Rescue Review

If you thought Tap Tap Revenge creator Tapulous was limited to only creating rhythm games then you'd be sorely mistaken as their latest release 'Zoo Rescue' couldn't be further from the rhythm style of tap titles. Zoo Rescue is a physics based action title where you need to fly your helicopter through cavernous deeps to rescue animals from their disastrous attempt to run away. Tapping the screen will provide your helicopter with some lift and tilting will angle your direction appropri…

SPLATTERHOUSE Review

SPLATTERHOUSE Review

Back in the day when Arcades weren't just a collection of networked racing titles, light gun shooters or ticket machines, I had a bit of a crush for SPLATTERHOUSE. I don't mean to say I loved the game, but at the time I loved what it represented: the gritty, gory side of gaming. And now  Namco Networks America have resurrected this classic and incredibly difficult beat'em-up. Though to be fair this difficulty comes from the controls instead of the game itself, though three diffic…

RAGE HD Review

Review id Software By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
RAGE HD Review

PLEASE NOTE: The 'HD' version is optimized for fourth generation devices (iPhone 4 / iTouch 4) and the iPad, however the iPhone 3GS is also supported. Older iDevices should grab RAGE, which is a separate App with the same gameplay and toned down visuals. Gamers still have a while to wait till they get their hands on id Software's upcoming post-apocalyptic title 'Rage', however gamers after a taste of this mutant-filled madness can get started right now by picking up the App Store titl…

SKIP SD Review

Review Life-Giving By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
SKIP SD Review

SKIP SD by Life-Giving studios places you behind the controls of an elite fighter in the Special 'Kaizen' Infiltration Platoon (SKIP for short) as you attempt to complete your mission in the post-World War 3 Earth of 2087. Or so I've had to garner from the App Store description as the game unceremoniously flings you in to a tunnel with little more than the title of the area you're in. This may be a small oversight, but it's something of a running theme with SKIP SD as you're left wond…


Red Ball Of Goo Review

Review Utopian Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Red Ball Of Goo Review

Developer Utopian Games, better known for their recent physics puzzler 'Bumps' challenged themselves to a 24 hour development marathon. Over this period they went from concept to final product and the three plucky developers ended up with 'Red Balls Of Goo', a physics based platformer that is by no means a simple challenge to conquer. In each of the game's 30 currently available levels, you need to collect the lazy pink orbs scattered around various platforms before making your way to…

Blind World Review

Review Dmitriy Kuzmenko By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Blind World Review

In the interest of full disclosure I will point out that Blind World by Dmitriy Kuzmenko was not reviewed on release as its crashing issues made it an impossible game to fairly review. However after a recent patch the game was finally made playable and this beautifully designed puzzler has been given a chance to shine. In each level of Blind World your objective is to carefully and with purposefully explore the world around you in order to reach a preset 'point' value for your actions…

UFO on Tape Review

Review Revolutionary Concepts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
UFO on Tape Review

For such a simple concept, UFO on Tape by Revolutionary Concepts is perhaps one of the most immediately engaging games I've had the pleasure of trying in some time. After spotting a UFO you'll need to keep your camera steady as you keep the alien ship in focus and on screen before running out of power. This sounds easy enough, but much like the alien crafts of folklore this UFO is fast, slippery and always seems to manage to shift itself in to angles that hide its presence from your l…

Dead Runner Review

Review Distinctive Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Dead Runner Review

I can't really put my finger on it, but Dead Runner by Distinctive Developments gets my spine tingling and it's hard to work out why it's so effective. Dead Runner's gameplay is (sorry to say it), dead simple. In both of the game's two available modes all you have to do is tilt and avoid solid obstacles blocking your way. In doing this you end up traveling through an endless forest of gnarled trees as you sprint away from the darkness behind you and in to the light beyond. Simple gam…
