Sky Force 2014 Review

Review Infinite Dreams Inc. By Alex Beech, 3 months, 3 weeks ago
Sky Force 2014 Review

The original Sky Force came out on mobile devices in 2004. It was a great looking mobile game for its day, and fantastic shooter to boot. Now, a decade later, Sky Force 2014 is looking to do the same again with the benefit of modern tech. Sky Force 2014 retains the tight shmup combat and  vertically scrolling levels of the original. As before, you must attack approaching targets, while trying to avoid the halestorm of bullets the game throws at you. A responsive one-to-one contr…

Free-to-play shmup Sky Force 2014 has just flown onto the App Store

Free-to-play shmup Sky Force 2014 has just flown onto the App Store

Sky Force was an impressive-looking mobile shump back in the Java days of 2004. Now, ten years later, Infinite Dreams has bought it back as free-to-play shooter Sky Force 2014. A lot has changed in a decade, most notably in the visual department. While the original looked good for its time, this new instalment is stunning. The 3D graphics models bring notable depth to the smooth top-down combat. This is made all the more impressive thanks to the beautiful explosion and lighting effects that fill every screen. The one-to-one touch controls have you dragging your little ship around the screen constantly shooting its cannons. However, in an interesting twist to this tried and tested system…


Fantastically frantic dodge’em-up Tilt to Live 2: Redonkulous is currently free on the App Store

Fantastically frantic dodge’em-up Tilt to Live 2: Redonkulous is currently free on the App Store

We adore developer One Man Left’s tilt based dodge’em-up Tilt to Live 2: Redonkulous. This makes us very happy to report that the game is currently free on the App Store. Tilt to Live 2: Redonkulous is to the twin-stick shooter genre what dodgems are to bumper cars. But, while shifting the action from hitting everything in sight to avoiding it may ruin the fairground attraction, in the palm of your hand it becomes something very special indeed. The responsive tilt based gameplay has you manipulating your device to weave through all manner of dangers in tight arenas. Constantly spawning enemies keep you under pressure as the screen quickly begins to fill with death. Coll…

Review Radiangames By Alex Beech, 4 months, 2 weeks ago
JoyJoy Review

There is nothing new about JoyJoy’s premise. At heart it is a classic twin stick shooter formed from the same mold as Smash TV and Geometry Wars. What developer Radiangames has attemted to bring to this tried and tested formula is an attractive visual style, and versatile weapons system. You must guide your ship around an arena populated by ever increasing waves of enemies. Collecting them from fallen foes, you can hold a total of six ammunition types. These include spread…

Warhammer 40,000: Carnage Review

Within the 40K universe, Space Marines are walking tanks. If you are being invaded by hundreds of Orks, all you need is one of the Emperor’s finest to hold back the storm.

Armed with only a bolt pistol and a combat knife you set out to find Captain Tychaeus, a space marine champion that has falle…

If you have ever played a shmup then AngerForce - Strikers will hold few surprises.

AngerForce you offers three characters to choose from, each with their own special attacks. Which you select will be dependent on your play style, with characters like the robot offering powerful laser attacks that do huge d…

Modern Combat 5 to feature shorter missions and anarchy

The newly titled Modern Combat: Blackout, the fifth instalment in Gameloft’s popular military shooter, plans to take you from Venice to Tokyo in its single player campaign. This time out, the team has focused on shorter missions for the new game's single player mode to deliver a more varied experience. They claim this has allowed them to create more intense stages that deliver more moment-to-moment gameplay than in previous instalments.

Try and survive Hopeless: Space Shooter on the App Store now

Upopa has just fired the latest installment of its arcade Hopeless series, Hopeless: Space Shooter, onto the App Store,. Hopeless: Space Shooter has a lot in common Hopeless: The Dark Cave. You take control of armed glowing blobs and try to stay alive as monsters attack. The difference here is that rather than being attacked in the dark of a cave, the blobs must try and survive the emptiness of space. You must tap the attacking aliens as they approach the blobs. The dark levels have attackers popping in from nowhere. Some take two shots, so you'll have to pay attention to what is attacking, as well as where they are coming from. It isn't all mindless trigger twitching, however, as th…

TriBlaster Review

Review Bulkypix By Alex Beech, 6 months, 1 week ago
TriBlaster Review

If you've ever seen the 1981 arcade game Tempest in action, then TriBlaster’s influences will be immediately apparent. The new tube shooter utilises the same visual style and gameplay mechanics as the Atari classic, but it does so with enough flair to make it feel fresh. TriBlaster's early stages look like you are standing at the blocks of a neon-soaked 100m race track. As you progress though the levels, the shape of these stages begins to warp and twist to awesome effect,…

Star Horizon Review

Review Tabasco Interactive By Alex Beech, 6 months, 1 week ago
Star Horizon Review

There is something oddly retro about Star Horizon. It harkens back to a past era of arcade gaming - a fast-paced on-the-rails action shooter revamped for 2014. For whatever reason, it seems everyone in the universe wants to kill John, the hero of the tale, and his friendly AI, Ellie. Frozen in space after a battle between Rebels and the Federation, he is a man out of time, swept along by events he doesn't understand. You are able to make choices for John throughout the story which cha…
