Space Balls Review

Review Sauce Digital Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Space Balls Review

Space Balls by Sauce Digital is a new physics puzzle title where you'll have to bounce balls around space in order to capture your foes the 'Cuboids' before they escape with your sacred Ultramegasphere. Despite the lack of creativity in the title, Space Balls is a seriously challenging and unique experience that plays much like a whacky version of trick-shot snooker. Players are given the ability to select between a variety of different orbs, each with their own unique properties, to…

Osmos Review

Review Hemisphere Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Osmos Review

Osmos by Hemisphere Games isn't your typical physics based game and after a brief stint on the iPad, iPhone owners can also check out this simple and absorbing title. In the Blobiverse, Newton's laws are king and you'll need to exploit your ability to fire bits of yourself in order to absorb smaller life-forms until you're the largest around. Osmos is an elegantly simple title to get in to, with 27 missions to introduce new players to each of the game's different modes and concepts. B…

Yogo The Turtle Review

Yogo The Turtle by digiTalented is a vertical climber with a bit of a twist and instead of an endless vertical corridor to conquer, you'll explore stage after stage of fixed challenges in an attempt to save your village. In order to make your way up the series of stages, you'll need to fling Yogo between spinning orbs and trampolines, tilting your device to correct your trajectory and survive attacks from various creatures in your way.

Review Free Lunch Design AB By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Dark Nebula - Episode Two Review

'Dark Nebula - Episode 2' by 1337 Game Design is the latest in the Dark Nebula series to grace the App Store and fans of the original can expect bigger and better things from this self-proclaimed Labyrinth 'on steroids'. Dark Nebula places you in control of an orb traveling through six different environments and 19 levels, tilting your way through dangerous trap filled zones and in a new twist you'll also be able to bring the fight to your enemies with a brand new combat system.

Master of Alchemy Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Master of Alchemy Review

Fans of physics based puzzlers are in for a treat as Master of Alchemy by DarkWave Studios and Chillingo has made the jump from the iPad to the iPhone, bringing its own unique brand of particle based physics and complex puzzles for you to solve on the run. I've often had a lot of bad luck with the controls to these sorts of games and Master of Alchemy is no exception, with the menus and placement of objects being too slow and cumbersome to accurately place objects and gain high scores…

Finger Balance Review

Finger Balance Review

Finger Balance by Coconut Island is one of those rare games where you can't help but wonder why it took so long to come about. Should you take the plunge you'll find yourself holding a board with your fingers, balancing a ball that can roll freely while attempting to navigate it through complex and even moving mazes. The controls are simplicity itself, with two buttons that, when held down, activate a board that will change size and angle depending on where you shift your two fingers.…

Graveyard Shift Review

Review PunBros Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Graveyard Shift Review

The dead have risen again and you're short of cash, so it's off to the graveyard to work the overnight shift and knock those skeletons back in to their restful slumber. Graveyard Shift by PunBros is a physics based puzzle title in the style of games like Tumbledrop and Saving Private Sheep, but in this game you'll need to figure out each level's Rube Goldberg-esque solutions to put the undead back where they belong. In each level, various blocks are balanced in a precarious setup and…

Gravity Hook HD Review

Gravity Hook HD Review

Gravity Hook HD by Semi Secret Software is not for the feint of heart. One thing Semi Secret seems to excel at is managing to make a simple concept work perfectly as an addictive title, but unlike Canabalt, you're going to have to work hard for your highscore in this remake of their classic 8-bit Flash original. Your goal is simply to make your way up as high as possible and you achieve this by throwing out hooked claws to gain purchase on various orbs in an attempt to maintain your m…

Farm Break Review

Review Mindstorm Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Farm Break Review

Three wiley sheep are fed up with their lot on the farm and have a brilliant idea, "Why not steal the farmer's stash of cash and make like bandits?". It's a hair-brain scheme that gets Sally, Knukkles and Big Jim locked up, but they're not having a bar of it and you'll have to help them escape in Farm Break by Sheep Factory and Mindstorm Studios. In a way, Farm Break is another take on the Lost Vikings style of puzzle platforming, giving you individual control over three sheep that ea…

Drift Mania Championship Gold Review

Review Ratrod Studio Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Drift Mania Championship Gold Review

I honestly don't get the attraction to drift racing, which is odd considering its popularity with many of my friends and indeed around the world. However, after spending time with Drift Mania Championship by Ratrod Studio I came close to understanding and if nothing else it's an impressive title at a bargain price that most racing fans should find hard to ignore. Drifting, as the game points out, is the sport of being in control of being out of control. The interface is amazingly eleg…

Players can choose from four basic control options, maneuvering their jet-ski via touch or tilt and selecting between auto and manual acceleration. No matter which option you stick with, the feel of racing your jet-ski is amazing, with weighty physics that slip and drag…

Review Synoptical Studios Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Aerox Review

If you've got a steady hand, a bucket-load of patience and a penchant for impossible physics based platforming, then Aerox by Synoptical Studios is the game for you. For everyone else, it's an interesting tilt-controlled platformer that boasts intuitive controls and clever physics that challenge your skills while providing a feast for the eyes. The tilt controls automatically zero based on how you're holding your device at the time the level starts, which is perfect when you're prepar…

Review RockYou, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Wild West 3D Rollercoaster Rush Review

Digital Chocolate have had a good run with the 3D Rollercoaster Rush series, adding a few different themes and other basic changes along the way. 'Wild West' is the latest in the series, but instead of the fast-paced thrills of its previous incarnations, this title has taken a completely different direction. The game no longer relies on tilt control alone and now allows players to control the forward/backward movement as well as the tilt via touch controls. Players are still in the bu…

Plunderland Review

Robbing the high-seas and fighting your way through blockades all in the name of booty is the pirate's dream. You'll have more than your share of both as you plunge in to Plunderland by Johnny Two Shoes and more to boot; set sail for madcap fun as you follow your ghastly ghost captain in to the deadly deeps.
