Chop Chop Caveman Review

Review Gamerizon By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Chop Chop Caveman Review

Developer Gamerizon isn't above trying out new ideas, or more specifically, attempting to pair classic and simple games with clever and intuitive controls designed almost exclusively with iDevices in mind. So, it's great to see Gamerizon returning to 2D platforming once again with Chop Chop Caveman and instead of flipping out in a non-stop brawl like in Chop Chop Ninja, you'll need to defeat and consume various animals while solving relatively simple physics puzzles in the process. Ho…

Pee Monkey Plant Bloom Review

Review Happylatte By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Pee Monkey Plant Bloom Review

There's just no getting around it... things are going to be said and I'm in the unfortunate position of having to say them, but it's hard not to feel a little bit weird when you start talking about Pee Monkey Plant Bloom by happylatte. I mean, the name says it all really; you'll need to pee on plants with a monkey to help the garden to grow. The gameplay itself is not unlike that of games like Angry Birds and players have a limited amount of... 'shots'... to make the plants bloom. Dra…

Review blacksmith games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Animeals Review

In Floop by blacksmith games, food has suddenly become sentient and somewhat suicidal as it attempts to fling itself in to the waiting maw of an animal that clearly understands the dynamics of this eater/eaten relationship. Players are given control over an acorn/block of cheese/banana that can be flung around the screen by dragging back on the piece of food to give it a trajectory. Each of the game's 50 levels features a variety of objects that can get in your way, however without a…

Red Devil Review

Review Xu Tianshui By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Red Devil Review

Sometimes you're only after something simple to while away your spare time and Red Devil by hare might just be the puzzle platformer for you if you need a quick time-killer. Armed with little more than directional buttons and a jump key, you'll need to solve 20 currently available levels in order to complete the game. Everything including your character is subjected to forces that can result in being pushed and pulled around the screen and if you're not careful the simple act of a mov…

Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit Review

I know you can't see my face at the moment, but if you could you'd notice the burning hunger in my eyes, the small beads of sweat at the edges of my brow and possibly the gnawing of my lip as I attempt to concentrate while I write. I really want to get back to playing Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit. After a few breaths and a drink of water I've calmed down and I realize that it's a shame the game only features tilt controls, however barring my own stupidity the game never really fa…

Chrominance Review

Review Andrea Mazzini By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Chrominance Review

Chrominance by Andrea Mazzini and EFlat Games challenges players to mix their skills at timing and combining colors to score it large in this strange physics based arcade title. Orbs of paint will make their way on to the screen at regular intervals, but should they collide with another orb they'll combine and splatter over the background. To score you'll need to make sure this combination lands on the correctly colored background by swiping them around the screen and if you're playin…

Doodle Lab101 Review

Review FunTribe By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Doodle Lab101 Review

The 'doodle' in Doodle Lab101 is a bit of a misnomer (at least in App Store terms) and instead of a game that features grid-paper backgrounds with sketch-art sprites you actually get to doodle to solve its whacky physics-based puzzles. It's easy to be overwhelmed by the help text for Doodle Lab101, but all of its concepts are slowly introduced over the 70 currently available levels to make sure you're not completely out of your depth. Your main goal is to deposit specific elements in…

Fragger Review

Review Miniclip.com By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Fragger Review

By popular demand (and because I can't believe AppSpy hasn't reviewed it already), I've finally delved the depths of Fragger by Miniclip and all we can say is that it's better to be late to the party then to never arrive. Fragger takes its own spin on the physics puzzler by challenging players to use their grenades in clever ways to bypass the defenses of their enemies. It's almost scary just how quickly I managed to slip in to and feel comfortable with the game's throwing controls. A…

Toyshop Adventures Review

Review Glu Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Toyshop Adventures Review

With the amount of physics based platformers on the App Store it seemed all but inevitable for a game to appear based on Little Big Planet. Toyshop Adventures by Glu is a freemium title where you'll explore various toy themed areas in order to reclaim the shop owner's lost marbles, making use of power-ups purchased with these marbles (or with your own cash) to reach the many hidden niches in each level. Toyshop Adventures doesn't mess around with the controls and players can move thei…

Angry Birds Seasons Review

Review Rovio Entertainment Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Angry Birds Seasons Review

It's hard to argue against the popularity of a game like Angry Birds and with 195 levels to master it's a heck of a great purchase. However it seems odd that the Halloween special edition has been released separately and for the same price as the original you get less content with no real change to the formula. If you're already addicted to Angry Birds then you'll hardly need an introduction to the physics-based gameplay, however if you're one of the few iDevice owners that still hasn…

Attraxxion Review

Review Runaway Creations, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Attraxxion Review

Physics based puzzles have become a fairly standard title on the App Store and trying to stand out isn't always easy, especially when some top selling titles have held the limelight for so long. Attraxxion by Runaway Creations takes a decidedly different direction with its puzzle gameplay and instead of flinging objects past or around planets or trying to smash down a building, you're tasked with creating planetary objects to fill your quota. That's right, you're a robot that has been…

Red Ball Of Goo Review

Review Utopian Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Red Ball Of Goo Review

Developer Utopian Games, better known for their recent physics puzzler 'Bumps' challenged themselves to a 24 hour development marathon. Over this period they went from concept to final product and the three plucky developers ended up with 'Red Balls Of Goo', a physics based platformer that is by no means a simple challenge to conquer. In each of the game's 30 currently available levels, you need to collect the lazy pink orbs scattered around various platforms before making your way to…

Fumes Stunt Racer Review

Review Sector3 Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Fumes Stunt Racer Review

I was never a huge fan of Stunt Car Racer (SCR) - yes, yes, 'blasphemy' I know - but I was having too much fun butting my head against games like Impossible Mission to master a title as subtly complex as SCR. Fumes Stunt Racer (FSR) by Sector3 Games is a spiritual revival of the seminal racing simulator and for once I'm glad I'm not dealing with rose-tinted glasses. FSR is not a title that forgives people for just jumping in and blasting away; no, players will need to come to grips, f…

Waves: Survivor Review

Review Renown Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Waves: Survivor Review

Poor Johnny Calm is trying to make his way back to civilization after being stranded, but unfortunately he's being pursued by Jaws: The Revenge (I'm sure someone will get that lame reference) and he'll need to scoot his way across the ocean as fast as possible to survive. You'll make your way across the rolling waves by using the game's simple touch buttons to move left or right, jump and attack. The constant pressure of the pursuing shark makes the game feel almost like an endless ru…

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Billabong Surf Trip Review

For some, the sun, the beach and surfing are practically a way of life; something I'm quite acquainted with living a mere handful of blocks from the home of the international clothing company 'Billabong'. Billabong Surf Trip by Chillingo tries to realistically capture the thrill and challenge of riding a wave while performing tricks to score points as you make your way on a world-wide tour of some of the best beaches you could visit. To do this you'll need to master Surf Trip's rather…
