iBlast Moki 2 Review

Review Godzilab By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
iBlast Moki 2 Review

Despite my time at AppSpy, I can't claim to have 'played them all' (the games that is) and as such when a sequel like iBlast Moki 2 from Godzilab drops out of the blue it's hard to know if you're looking at an improvement or just an update. Thankfully it's not hard to use the 'way-back-when' machine to make a comparison and suffice to say if you enjoyed the first title, you're going to have a literal blast with the new one. What makes iBlast Moki 2 so much fun is the way in which play…

RALLY-X RUMBLE Review

Review NamcoBandai Games Inc. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
RALLY-X RUMBLE Review

(The App Store is currently not allowing downloads of this App - a video will be made as soon as it's available again.) The original Rally-X was an interesting concept. Let a rally car loose in a maze, where it has to collect all the flags to proceed, while avoiding the evil rally cars chasing it. Now seeming that Namco Bandai are remaking all their arcade classics for the iPhone platform, we have Rally-X Rumble. It's the same game under some new graphical flair, with an emphasis on a…


Dice Soccer! Review

Review LambdaMu Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 8 months ago
Dice Soccer! Review

It's finally happened! The pairing you were waiting for. The fast paced action of soccer combined with the slow methodical tension of a dice roll. I guess both games require luck but while an odd pairing, Dice Soccer is a pretty addictive title. You are the manager of a soccer team. Starting in a training camp you have to win or draw matches to earn enough stars to move up the ranks and compete in the big leagues. You have three lines of players. Three forwards, three defense, and a g…

Silent Ops Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Silent Ops Review

Thanks to movies, TV shows and video games there's a glamorous view of being a spy (even if it does mean enduring a bit of torture now and then). The fantasy plays on the idea of being fiercely independent and self-sufficient - surviving against the odds even when they're stacked heavily against you. Ubisoft are no stranger to the cloak and dagger world of espionage and Gameloft has in turn brought Splinter Cell to the App Store, but it's clear there was more creative gas left in the t…

Shake Spears! Review

Review Shpaga Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Shake Spears! Review

There are a few options available to you when trying to put together a game based on jousting - there's the obvious fantasy approach (much like Joust!) where the rules are understandable, but clearly unrealistic; there's the RPG approach where variables and random chance help to determine the victor; or there's simply ramming two men and their horses together to see what happens. Shake Spears! by Alawar Entertainment and Wake Up Studios takes the last approach, albeit with a touch of m…

MapleStory Cygnus Knights Edition Review

Review NEXON MOBILE By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 8 months ago
MapleStory Cygnus Knights Edition Review

For those of you unfamiliar with Maple Story, it's a free to play Korean MMO that's been around for the latter half of the 2000s.  Cygnus Knights is the 2nd release of a single player version of the franchise for mobile devices, allowing play with two characters through a world full of endlessly respawing monsters. You can play either as Mikhail the Soul Knight or Oz the Flame Wizard, essentially giving you a play choice between melee combat or magic (although it takes a bit of p…

Z The Game Review

Review Kavcom Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Z The Game Review

If you grew up in the 90s and didn't know about games like Chaos Engine or Speedball, I'd say you're poorer for the lack of experience, but then again even fewer people I know seem to remember (at least seriously remember) playing Z by The Bitmap Brothers. While not a seminal release in the RTS genre, it took a different approach by focusing on the minutiae of controlling units while forming tactical strategies to outplay your AI (or real life) opponents. Kavcom Limited have brought th…

9mm Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
9mm Review

While many people are able to back a knight-in-shining-armor hero in most games, the anti-hero or at least a hero with 'dirty hands' makes for a nice change of pace. Sure it's nothing new and games have long since taken to putting you in the shoes of villains and criminals, but at least it's a far cry from the usual cute-sy or noble characters to be expected on the App Store. 9mm by Gameloft shifts gears down to this gritter plateau, placing you in the shoes of John "Loose" Kannon, a c…

Kard Combat ™ Review

Review Hothead Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Kard Combat ™ Review

Editor Note (Nov 9, 2011): One of the major weaknesses of Kard Combat when it was released was its lack of customization - something further exascerbated by only having a handful of mages to play with, limiting the overall amount of unique cards to try out. Instead of adding in deck manipulation, Hothead Games has opted to add more mages (albeit at a cost) while also adding in local hotseat (a boon for friends who don't own iDevices). We still feel the lack of customization makes…

Swords and Soldiers Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Swords and Soldiers Review

It has been a long, though maybe not so strange ride for Swords & Soldiers by Ronimo Games and now, two years after its initial release on the Nintendo Wii, Chillingo and Two Tribes have brought this real-time strategy, castle defender on to the App Store. Like so many similar castle defenders, your job is to crush the opponent by amassing resources in order to purchase units that will automatically wander away from your keep and towards the enemy. Learning how to balance your ava…

Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer Review

Review Playdek By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer Review

On the one hand, the recent influx (if you can call it that) of Collectable Card Games (CCGs) and their related game-types is a boon to fans of card based gaming and those after something to play and pass around with friends. On the other hand (and this is more of a personal note) playing these sorts of games can become a bit of an obsession. Who better than tournament champions from Magic The Gathering to understand my woe and to help design Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer by Pl…

THE KING OF FIGHTERS-i- Review

Review SNK PLAYMORE By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
THE KING OF FIGHTERS-i- Review

As much as I love fighting games, there’s one series above all others that has consistently and continually remained out of my reach - The King of Fighters (KOF) series. It’s a shameful burden to bear, but while I watch people enjoy the heck out of this classic fighter I’m often reduced to relying on my button-mashing-fu. As such I’m glad I’ve got my hands on The King of Fighters-i by SNK Playmore - not because I can button mash, but because I’m gett…

STREET FIGHTER IV VOLT Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
STREET FIGHTER IV VOLT Review

As I consider CAPCOM’s latest Street Fighter title for iOS I can’t help but drag my eyes across the room to the two arcade sticks I have for playing the console version with my friends. While there’s a lot of fun to be had in mastering characters offline, the real magic happens when two people go head-to-head and although last year’s iOS version provided local multiplayer, players can now take their fight to a global level with STREET FIGHTER IV Volt. In additi…

Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing Review

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it" - Trite as the adage may be, kart-racers found their balance of fun, skill and challenge some time ago, so it's no wonder recent releases have had more than a few things in common. Despite this the iOS has been sorely lacking in strong contenders for the genre, that is until now. Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing packs in everything you'd expect to see in a kart-racer while managing to make the clashing worlds work in its favor. It's hard to imagine h…

Ducati Challenge Review

Review Digital Tales By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Ducati Challenge Review

Motorcycle racers have come and gone with varying amounts of success on the App Store, but when most people have constant contact with four-wheeled vehicles it's not easy to convince them that two-wheels can feel just as natural in a virtual environment. Ducati Challenge by Digital Tales strides ahead of those that have come before, packing smooth controls and a realistic feel that players can ease in to as they master earlier stages of the game. Unfortunately there are no alternative…
