The Infinity Project 2 Review

The Infinity Project 2 Review

Infinity Project 2 by Crazy Robot Games is an ambitious title - it's clear from even the briefest of time spent in their first-person shooter that it's the culmination of a huge body of effort from a small developer. Let it not be said that the depth of content on offer is unappreciated, however, it's hard not to feel a little disappointed with the way it's presented. You continue your quest from the previous title, fighting against the Talon who have used a time-space portal to invad…

Alien Breed Review

Alien Breed Review

Sure, Alien Breed by Team17 may have been a bare-faced attempt at re-imagining the Aliens franchise as a top-down shooter, but if you never had a chance to experience the classic on an Amiga, you haven't lived. That last statement may be hyperbolic (just a tad), but players were subjected to claustrophobic corridors, quick-moving aliens that continued to appear seemingly out of nowhere and (best of all) had to deal with severely limited resources. The sense of fear and tension was ahea…

Tentacle Wars Review

Tentacle Wars Review

Tentacle Wars isn't just content about giving us a fresh take on the real time strategy genre by taking place at the microscopic level, battling against invading cells. No, you also happen to be waging this war inside the body of an alien organism that takes its inspiration from the fever dreams of H.R. Giger. Based on the popular flash game, this mobile version brings a back and forth game of cellular conquest straight to your iPhone and iPad, where positioning and reinforcement are k…

Mad Cows Review

Review Everplay By Dave Flodine, 2 years ago
Mad Cows Review

So we've had Angry Birds, now we have Mad Cows. What's next? Perturbed Kangaroos? Confused Marmosets? Well let's stop giving designers ideas and delve into a pretty blatant Angry Birds clone. Oh yes there are some differences, including the addition of a multiplayer component, but this is the type of game you've seen and played many times before. You have six animals to choose from. Each have their own levels, and each have a special ability. It's interesting because instead of having…

Spy vs Spy Review

Spy vs Spy Review

Spy vs Spy is the kind of retro game that was always bound to have a sequel on the iOS platform in one form or another. First Star Software's 1984 classic formula has already been aped on the App Store, but thanks to Robots and Pencils, the original game in all its glory (as well as all new levels) are now available for the iPhone and iPad alike. You, as well as your rival spy, have entered an embassy and your goal is to escape with all of the items in the level, hindering or temporar…

Free 2 Die Review

Review Everplay By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Free 2 Die Review

At what point does homage become a rip off? Fans of the multiplayer zombie shooter Left 4 Dead might see more than a few resemblances in Everplay Interactive's Left2Die, from the name itself, to the ideas behind the special zombies. Aside from that though it plays a lot more like Alive 4 Ever, yet in copying the design of that game, has failed to latch on to what makes a fun twin-stick shooter zombie survival experience (hmm, that might just be another genre name in the making here).…

Outwitters Review

Review One Man Left By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Outwitters Review

It's been a while since we've seen a release from One Man Left Studios. Years ago they released the fantastic Tilt to Live, and aside from updating that game with new modes and features, nothing else has surfaced... until now that is. Outwitters is a turn based strategy game that pits you against the rest of the internet in either 1v1 or 2v2 match-ups. You can play league games which pit you against players of the same skill level as you rank up; you can play against random opponents;…

Tiny Wings HD Review

Review Andreas Illiger By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Tiny Wings HD Review

With so many auto-runners and endless titles attempting to pack in bigger environments, faster gameplay and deadlier enemies, the appearance of Tiny Wings by Andreas Illiger wasn't just a breath of fresh air, it was a complete game-changer. All of a sudden gamers had objectives to complete with tangible rewards and challenging achievements to attempt - the fact that you were playing as a bird with tiny wings that's unable to fly properly was the cute icing on the cake. Now almost a ye…

Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition Review

Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition Review

We've all seen the tabletop retro arcade machines at a hipster-ish coffee shop, or maybe at a family friendly restaurant, and honestly, who hasn't been tempted to put in a few coins to relive (or just try out) a few classics? Eventually the rose-tinted glasses aren't enough and you realize why we've moved on - it's nice to pay a visit to the forefathers of modern gaming, but you wouldn't want to stay there. Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition attempts to gussy-up the original classic and pa…

Magic 2013 iPad Review

Review Wizards of the Coast By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Magic 2013 iPad Review

I feel I would have to officially hand in my 'nerd card' if I ever lost the urge to want to play a casual game of Magic: The Gathering with my friends. Sure, some people are going to invest themselves more in the collectable card game than others, but all it takes is a pre-made deck and players looking to have fun and you'll find that the evening gleefully melts away. Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 by Stainless Games is the first installment of Wizards of the Coast's popular CCG to m…

Asphalt 7: Heat Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Asphalt 7: Heat Review

It seems to be taking many small incremental changes, but the Asphalt series by Gameloft is slowly approaching something akin to the coin-swallowing racers that still dominate modern arcades. Gorgeous in its presentation, utterly unrealistic in its racing, but still challenging thanks to fierce AI opponents, Asphalt 7: Heat keeps things simple, but nails the mindless fun inherent in the genre. Each of the 15 eye-popping stages feature a range of hidden, and not so hidden short-cuts th…

Zombie Quest - Mastermind the hexes! Review

Review Pavel Tarabrin By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 2 months ago
Zombie Quest - Mastermind the hexes! Review

We've seen a lot of games involving zombies in our tenure as reviewers, and most of them are pretty much the same. After all, the zombie is a great opponent in an action game. They're slow, there's a lot of them, and most importantly, they're not human. It's been a while since there's been a unique take on zombies in the app store, but Zombie Quest – Mastermind the Hexes most definitely fits that description. More a monster game than a zombie game, but what we have here is a stra…

Virtua Tennis Challenge Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Virtua Tennis Challenge Review

Unlike so many who fondly remember Virtua Tennis from its heyday on the Dreamcast, I recall many a shiny dollar being pumped in to the machine at the local Arcade (or if I was lucky, a bunch of free plays during a lock-in night). Combining both the complexity of athletic Tennis and the simplicity of Arcade controls, it was a smash hit. Now on the iOS it has a chance to ensnare even more people, but as you'd expect it's not an entirely smooth ride. Despite the minimum fourth-gen iDevic…

Tiny Plane™ Review

Review Mathieu Roy By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Tiny Plane™ Review

Somewhere along the way games of the 'endless' variety started the lose their way, opting to focus on short, repetitive runs that often feature missions to offset the lack of actual gameplay and, at times, luck required to advance. Tiny Plane by PowPowGames and Chillingo harkens back to a simpler time when endless games played fair by quickly adjusting its challenge to the individual player. Whether you're collecting fruit or coins, in Tiny Plane your objective is to not run out of fu…

Slingshot Racing Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Slingshot Racing Review

Touchscreens offer a unique opportunity for a developer to think outside the box to come up with something unique and interesting, but those that stray too far away may find themselves addressing a niche audience. Snowbolt Interactive and Crescent Moon Games strike a happy balance between innovation and reimagination by creating an elegant top-down racer that requires little more than a tap to play. Each track is made of ice and your 'racer' is more akin to a sled. As such it has no m…
