Nightfall Review

Nightfall Review

As much as I profess a love for board games, I must admit my preoccupation with video games keeps me out of the loop (as it were) when it comes to upcoming or popular titles. Nightfall, an aggressive deck-building card game from Alderac Entertainment Group, has gathered a strong following since its release last year - so it's no surprise to see Playdek, the iOS developer who brought out releases for Food Fight and Ascension, pushing this title out the door as well. Those familiar with…

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.…

SpellTower Review

Review Zach Gage By Dave Flodine, 2 years ago
SpellTower Review

Your average word game never fails to impress on some level as word formation is such a simple yet addictive puzzle for our brains to solve. What sets some above others is not only the format of finding words, but the elegance of word creation itself, and this is where Spelltower by Zach Gage shines. Words are created by swiping through letters. Not just vertically and horizontally however, but diagonally as well. And it's not to say it's like a word find either. You can start your wo…

MotoHeroz Review

Review Ubisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years ago
MotoHeroz Review

Much like CAVE and their predictable, but almost always excellent bullet-hell shooters, RedLynx can be counted upon to add to their collection of time-trial titles. Fresh off the heels of their update to the Draw Race series, MotoHeroz is a side-on time-trial racer, but it's not entirely new for the company as it repackages a stripped down version of the Nintendo Wii title of the same name for the iOS platform. 'Stripped down' has such a nasty sound to it though and all you're likely…

Kids vs Goblins Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Kids vs Goblins Review

A recent commenter on our videos pointed out that often a game falls under the category of evolution and not revolution - put another more personal context, while new and unique games are praise-worthy, there's no reason why a game can't take something we know and build upon it. Kids vs Goblins by Stolen Couch Games and Crescent Moon Games does just this, giving the Battleheart formula a story-driven tweaking. This isn't the first time the publisher has pushed something like this thro…

Spice Bandits Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Spice Bandits Review

In one of the more funny introductions to a game we've encountered in a while, Spice Bandits introduces the Spice Bandits, a galactic brand of pirates who plunder entire worlds in search of their precious addictive habit. Now they've set their sites on Earth. Most games would have you fight back the invading forces, but not this one. Do you have what it takes to help the pirates beat back Earth's defense force all in the name of spice? If so, please continue with the review. Once the…

Reckless Racing 2 Review

Review Polarbit By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Reckless Racing 2 Review

Strangely it doesn’t feel as though much time has passed since Pixelbite first introduced iOS gamers to their Reckless Racing franchise, though this may be in-part thanks to a mid-year release of Reckless Getaway reminding players of what the developer can pull off. Reckless Racing 2 doesn’t disappoint as it blasts on to the App Store, showing just how top-down racing should look, feel and play on hand-held touchscreen devices. From the outset the game feels rough and toug…

Desert Zombie Last Stand Review

Review Eighth Wonder Studios By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 2 months ago
Desert Zombie Last Stand Review

If there's one thing that is a constant in zombie games is that they don't have guns, and they don't shoot back. I mean the whole point of the explosion of zombie related video-gaming is that it's a way to satisfy a desire for wonton violence against something that looks human, but isn't. The fact that they hobble around and are ripe for the deadly end of a variety of firearms just adds to the appeal... so what happens when that changes? Desert Zombie Last Stand is kind of like the me…

SOULCALIBUR Review

Review NamcoBandai Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
SOULCALIBUR Review

It seems as though it was only a matter of time before someone would eventually remind Namco Bandai that they're sitting on a gold-mine. Thanks to iOS releases of Street Fighter and King of Fighters, SoulCalibur has been provided with an opportunity to show off its 3D fighting gameplay on a hand-held platform. While the usual genre concerns with regards to virtual controls remain ever-present, SoulCalibur is still a fantastically fun romp for fans of the series. However before we cont…

Woody Woodpecker Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 2 months ago
Woody Woodpecker Review

When loading up Woody Woodpecker initially, it turned out to be not what we were expecting. First it looked like it might be a cartoon themed platformer. Then the character selection screen comes up and it looks like a kart racer. Turns out that's not exactly right either. Basically this game is what would happen if you took Tiny Wings and turned it into a racing game, with each character from the Woody Woodpecker show vying for first position when they cross the finish line. An invent…

Pixel Fighters Review

Review Kyle Newsome By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Pixel Fighters Review

Occasionally, despite all evidence in front of me that says I shouldn't like something, I find myself beating my head against a brick wall trying to find the one thing that makes all of the time spent playing the game worthwhile. Pixel Fighters by BitWit Solutions is, potentially, a fantastic tactical title and manages to merge JRPG-like combat and tropes with more traditional tactical action-point based mechanics. It's an odd fit, but one that really does work, making it all the more…

Street Wrestler Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Street Wrestler Review

Well this is awkward - after failing to excite on the XBLA, Lucha Fury by Punchers Impact promptly disappeared from the gaming consciousness and now, a little over six months later, Chillingo and Candybox Studios have snuck the game on to the App Store under the rather generic name of Street Wrestler. Unfortunately, despite taking the time to spruce up certain aspects of the game, much of what made the original so unpalatable as a side-scrolling beat'em-up has survived the trip, making…

Lunar Racer Review

Review Noodlecake Studios Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Lunar Racer Review

When Noodlecake Studios first told us that their next project was like a mash-up between Tiny Wings and Mario Kart, I have to say I was equally worried and excited about it. Excited because it's a genius little concept and worried because there's a fine line that must be tread by all 'Kart' games to remain fun no matter where you end up at the finish line. While Lunar Racer manages to pull off the basic concept with ease, a combination of control and content woes brings the game short…

ZENONIA® 4 Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
ZENONIA® 4 Review

For those who have followed the Zenonia series from GAMEVIL, the best that could be said of each one is that they have learned from their previous iterations, tweaking and adding tiny features to remain competitive in the KRPG scene. Zenonia 4 represents a shift from this trend as it feels more like a broad summary of the previous titles while taking the game in a new direction by handing out the game for free. With this price-point comes some obvious changes, the largest being the sc…

Ice Rage Review

Review Mountain Sheep By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Ice Rage Review

An often ignored aspect of portable gaming is the opportunity to involve other people directly in the game you're playing. This doesn't always go smoothly and 'multiplayer' modes involving 'passing' the device can feel incredibly clunky. As such, the iOS multi-touch feature created an opportunity for more than one person to play a game at the same time and Mountain Sheep's (Bike Baron, Death Rally, Minigore) latest release Ice Rage tries to cash in on this style of play. At its core I…
