Desert Zombie Last Stand Review

Review Eighth Wonder Studios By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 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 BANDAI NAMCO Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 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, 7 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, 7 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, 7 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, 7 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, 8 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, 8 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…

Crazy Bomber Review

Crazy Bomber Review

Calm down everybody. This game has nothing to do with terrorists. Well unless you believe the Bomberman franchise has connections to terrorism. I mean, bombs have plenty of other uses than blowing stuff up... right? Anyways, pick your cute little monster and help them blow up all the nasties that inhabit each stage. This is what Crazy Bomber is all about. The allusions to Bomberman stated previously are very apt. You move via a d-pad and pressing the bomb button will drop a bomb, that…

Tank Riders Review

Review Polarbit By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 8 months ago
Tank Riders Review

Tank Riders gives the impression of a game from a by-gone era. Some of you will remember such strategic action games like Herzog Zwei and Return Fire, which really were more action than strategy. Whether it's clearing the level of enemies or simply getting to the exit, Tank Riders has the same vibe as you tread around the landscape and blast the holy balls out of the opposition. The tank is controlled by an arcade stick at the bottom left of the screen. It turns invisible when not pre…

NFL Flick Quarterback Review

Review Full Fat By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
NFL Flick Quarterback Review

It has only been three months or so since Full Fat made their last appearance on the App Store and once again the developer has expanded the 'Flick' series to include all 32 official teams in their new title, NFL Flick Quarterback. While the idea was first introduced in Flick Golf Extreme!, Flick QB requires players to judge their flicks to not only accurately reach their goal, but also to predict where the receiver is running to in order to score bonuses. To make things even harder t…

Zen Pinball Review

Review ZEN Studios Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Zen Pinball Review

I'm seriously having flashbacks here - as a child of the 80s and a self-admitted video game nerd, the local video arcades were a veritable haven for me. While pinball games were never my forte, there was a distinct magical allure that came from the newer generation of fancy and complex titles that tried to capture the essence of a franchise, typified by the introduction of Midway's classic Addams Family pinball table. These memories are distinct and powerful, which is why I was surpris…

W.E.L.D.E.R. Review

Review Ayopa Games LLC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
W.E.L.D.E.R. Review

Being a welder of words admittedly sounds rather poncy. However, there's no better explanation for the task set upon you in... 'W.E.L.D.E.R.'. Luckily swapping tiles to create words is a lot of fun, and thanks to some interesting little gameplay additions, a rather unique experience among word and puzzle games is to be had. The core of the game is a mix of Bejeweled and Scrabble. Tiles can be swapped horizontally, vertically, and diagonally to create words of four letters or more. The…

Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies Review

Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies Review

For those yet to try out Call of Duty's interestingly themed co-op addition to their main series, the 'Zombies' titles represent a fun and frantic distraction from an otherwise serious first person shooter. Its initial conversion to the iOS platform was far from well received and its 'sequel' was appreciated even less, but is the third time a charm for Activision's Black Ops Zombies? The game tasks you with the seemingly impossible challenge of defending a map from its unholy attacker…

Infinity Blade II Review

Infinity Blade II Review

Not only did the original Infinity Blade introduce players to a new and cunningly effective combat system for touchscreen-based devices, it pushed the boundaries of what was possible on the iOS platform both visually and conceptually. Its iterative style of gameplay was (for some) simply repetitive, but more than anything else it has opened the doors up to a great story concept, something not lost at all in Chair Entertainment's sequel, Infinity Blade II. While those who played the or…
