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…

Scotland Yard Review

Scotland Yard Review

I've made it abundantly clear in the past that I love board games. While video games are obviously a passion of mine, their roots are embedded deeply in the social past-time of gathering around a table and vying for supremacy via cards, dice, tokens or just your mind Scotland Yard is almost 30 years old now and a true classic, but also one that may have left many a child frustrated by its obvious weaknesses as a board game, so how does it shape up as a video game? The game supports b…

The Bluecoats - North vs South Review

Review Microids By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
The Bluecoats - North vs South Review

The original game this remake is based on, 'North & South' was based on the Belgian comic book 'Les Tuniques Bleues', which was a humorous take on the American Civil War. The Bluecoats – North vs South takes the “turn based strategy laden with mini-games” concept, updates the graphics and smooths over the whole experience. With a fresh coat of paint and some tinkering, how does this gaming classic hold up? Well the game starts at the options screen in which you c…

N.O.V.A. 3 - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
N.O.V.A. 3 - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Review

N.O.V.A. 3 (NOVA3) is not above bombast and indeed it kicks things off in an explosive and gorgeous way. What follows is most certainly Gameloft's best entry in the science-fiction FPS series, but an unrelenting series of sequences that seem incomplete or untested drag the game back from the brink of excellence. The setting is a familiar one - Earth (or what remains of it) is under attack and you as the disgruntled, gravel-voiced hero are called back (despite saying you were done help…

THE KING OF FIGHTERS-i 2012. Review

Review SNK PLAYMORE By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
THE KING OF FIGHTERS-i 2012. Review

When The King of Fighters-i first found its way on to the App Store and managed to rival its the Street Fighter titles, it was all I could do to contain my joy. Once again, developers had managed to defy conventions and turn a game that requires insanely precise controls in to something not only playable, but also competitive. The King of Fighters-i 2012 keeps the ball rolling and in much the same way that Volt did for Street Fighter IV. More to the point, those expecting a change-up…

Inotia 4 Review

Review Com2uS USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Inotia 4 Review

As it is, and so shall it always be, given the fullness of time, yet another sequel to a somewhat popular KRPG series makes its way on to the App Store. Inotia 4: Assassin of Berkel by Com2us is the next on the chopping block, and it seemingly fails to learn from the past, instead seeking to exploit its free-to-play status. You are once again in the control of a teenager keen to prove himself (in this case as the 'virtuoso' of the Shadow Tribe) and you're thrown in to a 'whirlwind' st…

MARVEL VS. CAPCOM 2 Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
MARVEL VS. CAPCOM 2 Review

CAPCOM generally doesn't skimp on the details when it comes to its fighting game releases on the App Store. It seems almost counter-intuitive to think a serious fighting game could be successful on a small touch-screen, but Street Fighter IV has shown that it's not only possible, but also a lot of fun. As such it's almost unfortunate for Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 to feel as rushed as it does, suffering from bloated controls on smaller iDevices and visuals that looked muddied thanks to poor…

Sky Gnomes Review

Review Foursaken Media By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Sky Gnomes Review

When one thinks of gnomes the mind often wanders to those creepy all-too-happy garden statues strewn across your neighbor's yard. Who would have thought that they were dare-devils? OK, in fantasy it's long been known that gnomes like to tinker and invent contraptions, but if we are to believe Sky Gnomes by Foursaken Media, their favorite form of entertainment is to build racing machines that allow them to plummet from the sky as fast as gnome-nly possible.Sky Gnomes is an entirely mult…

Nightfall Review

Review Playdek, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
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, 5 months 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, 5 months 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, 6 months 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…

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months 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, 7 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…
