Sonic Spinball Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 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, 3 years, 6 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, 3 years, 6 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, 3 years, 6 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, 3 years, 6 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, 3 years, 7 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, 3 years, 7 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 Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 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, 3 years, 7 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…

Review Spaces of Play By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Spirits Review

The iPad version of Spirits by Spaces of Play was released not long ago, however now iPhone and iTouch device users can try their hand at this ethereal Lemmings-inspired puzzler. As you make your way through the 40 currently available levels you'll need to rescue a set amount of leaf spirits before moving on to the next challenge. The game's intuitive controls make this a relatively simple matter as you only need to tap a spirit then select a particular function you wish to perform an…

Review PressOK Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Feed Al: A Finger Physics Odyssey Review

While I may love puzzle titles, one problem that seems to plague them is that they end. It may sound trite, but when you're really absorbed in a puzzle it can be a disappointment to know that you have nothing left to do. Feed Al: A Finger Physics Odyssey by PressOK Entertainment attempts to pair their popular Finger Physics franchise with an 'endless' puzzle system that evolves to not only challenge your lateral-thinking skills, but to give you a near unique challenge on every playthro…

The basics of Dino Rush will be familiar to genre fans and while…

Zoo Rescue Review

Review Tapulous, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Zoo Rescue Review

If you thought Tap Tap Revenge creator Tapulous was limited to only creating rhythm games then you'd be sorely mistaken as their latest release 'Zoo Rescue' couldn't be further from the rhythm style of tap titles. Zoo Rescue is a physics based action title where you need to fly your helicopter through cavernous deeps to rescue animals from their disastrous attempt to run away. Tapping the screen will provide your helicopter with some lift and tilting will angle your direction appropri…
