Hungry Shark - Part 3 Review

Review Future Games of London By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 3 months ago
Hungry Shark - Part 3 Review

Future Games of London have placed Hungry Shark back up for a third spin on the App Store and for those already familiar with this vicious free-roaming title you now have a chance to take on an evil genius in his secret lair. Where the first release had its moments of fun, it was ultimately fairly short and limited in its scope. Part 3 goes a long way to resolve this problem by providing a much larger area to play with and challenging obstacles to overcome in order to get there. Cont…

Extreme_Formula Review

Review GOGN Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 3 months ago
Extreme_Formula Review

Slick graphics, speedy racing and a futuristic theme are all well and good, but when it comes down to it a player needs to be able to feel like they're in control of their car when playing a racing title. It seems like a fairly obvious point, but Extreme Formula by GOGN Entertainment falls short of the mark and new players are bound to scratch their head as they try to work out what they're doing wrong. This is, in part, thanks to an interface that is cumbersome by design and the init…

Tiki Totems 2 Review

Review Rafal Staszewski By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 3 months ago
Tiki Totems 2 Review

Physics puzzlers are hardly in short supply on the App Store and trying to jostle for a front-seat in that crowd takes a special game that out-shines its opponents in some key way. Tiki Totems 2 by spokko doesn't just try to stand out by having a lot of levels, or several unique gameplay modes, or clever puzzle designs, OR a level editor to share levels with friends; no, instead it combines all of these in order to explode to the front of the pack. The basic gameplay will be familiar…

Miss Claire Garden Review

Review Chris Neveu By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 3 months ago
Miss Claire Garden Review

Miss Claire Garden by Chris Neveu is a story of two games - one game that should be forgotten and another that manages to be fairly engaging. The twist is that they're both the same game and a single update in the gameplay makes all the difference between something that is unplayable versus something that is enjoyable. In this Yoshi's Island-inspired platformer, you'll play the role of Claire Garden as she seeks to help the local wildlife and expand her business in square fruits and v…

Tiki Towers 2 Review

Review GameHouse By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 3 months ago
Tiki Towers 2 Review

While gamers await the coming of World of Goo for the remaining iOS devices it's worth exploring the alternatives as you might just find something interesting enough to hold you over. Tiki Towers 2 is the sequel to the original monkey-filled physics puzzler and the madness starts all over again as you attempt to safely wrangle these furry beasts towards each level's goal. Each level provides an initial set of hook points on which bamboo and other various structures can be built. While…

Sonic Spinball Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 4 months ago
Sonic Spinball Review

Sonic the Hedgehog had an odd period in his career where he was placed in all sorts of strange predicaments and situations that have (in retrospect) been considered fairly questionable. Though strangely enough, the idea of Sonic in a pinball game wasn't much of a stretch and in 1993 gamers were given Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball (or Sonic Spinball as it's now known on the App Store) by SEGA. While regular pinball titles were often content with simple physics engines and skill-shots to…

DeathFall Review

Review Riverman Media LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 4 months ago
DeathFall Review

If you haven't heard the term 'ear worm' before, let me explain: Have you ever had a moment when you realize you have a small loop of a song stuck in your head and it's almost impossible to get your brain to skip over it? That's an 'ear worm'. DeathFall by Jurgis Games is the gaming equivalent of an 'ear worm' and while there could be something grand beyond the walls of this game, you feel like you're stuck in some never ending loop that never attempts to break free. The journey you t…

Mad Skills Motocross Review

Review Turborilla By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 4 months ago
Mad Skills Motocross Review

If you never had a chance to play the classic motocross racer 'Excitebike' back in the day then you may have missed out on a genuinely (and I'm sorry to say it) exciting racer that challenged players with its semi-realistic style that rewarded players that carefully managed their bikes instead of simply smashing the accelerator. Mad Skills Motocross by Turborilla feels like a serious revival of this classic racer, pitting players against AI opponents while using minimalistic controls t…

Twisted Fates Review

Review Lewis Pugh By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 4 months ago
Twisted Fates Review

Every now and then a game crops up that serves as a reminder of how powerful it can be to break up a game in to short, challenging chunks. Those who have played games like N+ or Super Meat Boy will know what I'm talking about and while Twisted Fates by Leuvsion isn't as polished or as challenging as other titles, its unique style of platforming is served well by the bite-sized levels. One thing that fails to escape notice is the cartoonish Manga-inspired visuals featuring well-endowed…

Pirates vs. Ninjas vs. Zombies vs. Pandas Review

Review PAN Vision AB By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 4 months ago
Pirates vs. Ninjas vs. Zombies vs. Pandas Review

Yes... I know what you're thinking. Don't say it - just don't. I get it OK? I mean we've been over this dozens of times before and I honestly don't think it's ever going to end, so we don't need to continually go on about it for every game. I mean... Pandas? How are they going to compete against Pirates and Ninjas and Zombies... am I right? But in all seriousness, Pirates vs. Ninjas vs. Zombies vs. Pandas (PvNvZvP) is what it is - a physics based puzzler involving things being shot at…

Asphalt 6: Adrenaline Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 4 months ago
Asphalt 6: Adrenaline Review

This really must be a happy holidays for the racing fans out there given the quality of the recent releases out on the App Store and Gameloft, never one to be left behind, has also brought out Asphalt 6, the third installment of their racing series for iDevices. By now the series has started to gain some legs of its own, slowly spreading its wings as it steps out from shadow of titles like Need for Speed and Burnout. However it seems there was a bit of a misstep and Asphalt 6 has cros…

Uber Racer 3D - Sandstorm Review

Review Mad Processor By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 5 months ago
Uber Racer 3D - Sandstorm Review

Resources are depleted, oil's the most valuable thing on earth, currency useless, racers compete for oil - blah blah blah; I appreciate the effort on the story for Uber Racer 3D - Sandstorm by Mad Processor, but when an arcade racer is this rock solid all I need to know is where the accelerator is and why I'm not already flipping cars in to a ravine. Much like any good Arcade Racer, you won't need to fuss around with gears or nonsense concepts like 'physics don't work that way' and on…

Red Nova Review

Red Nova Review

It's surprisingly rare to find a title on the App Store that seriously considers the limitations of using a small touch screen, but Red Nova by Colin Walsh is amongst that rare breed and after a short while you'll be taking on alien hordes like the hero you're meant to be. The controls of your prototype fighter take some getting used to, especially if you've played one too many twin-stick shooters, and instead of simply zipping around and firing in all directions you'll have to conten…

Cover Orange Review

Review FDG Mobile Games GbR By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 5 months ago
Cover Orange Review

Cover Orange by FDG Entertainment has already had a lot of success thanks to its exposure as a free physics puzzler on Flash gaming sites. While iPad gamers managed to get the first taste of this game on the App Store, iPhone and iTouch users can now get their hands on this compelling puzzle title. Your aim is (as the title implies) to cover the oranges and protect them from being damaged by deadly projectiles being flung by a passing cloud. Initially this is a fairly simple task as y…

Jenga Review

Review NaturalMotion By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 5 months ago
Jenga Review

I just have to ask this... I mean, how bored was the person who came up with Jenga? Don't get me wrong, I've had some fun times with friends playing the game, but at what point did someone craft 54 wooden blocks, stack them up and say 'Yup, that's a game!'? At any rate, you can dispense with the messy, noisy and tedious creation of the Jenga tower thanks to NaturalMotion's modern 3D update to this party-game favorite. One of the tricks of Jenga is knowing just which block to go for an…
