Aqua Moto Racing 2 Review

Review Dohi Sweden By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 10 months ago
Aqua Moto Racing 2 Review

Resolution Interactive are no stranger to racing titles, but Aqua Moto Racing 2 has upped the ante and fans of jet-ski racers need look no further than this excellent example of fun, adrenaline pumping aquatic mayhem. 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…

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…

Wild West 3D Rollercoaster Rush Review

Review RockYou, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 11 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…

Review PressOK Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 11 months ago
Finger Physics: Thumb Wars Review

Review GLITCHERS LTD By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 11 months ago
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. Players can take control of their crew through various means, tilting their device to sail back and forth or touching the screen to unleash your ghostly powers. Dragging your fing…

Magnetic Shaving Derby Review

Review Brandon Williamson By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 11 months ago
Magnetic Shaving Derby Review

After checking out the screenshots for Magnetic Shaving Derby (MSD) you'd be forgiven for steering clear, opting not to jump in to what clearly looks like a crazy title. Nyarlu Labs have succeeded in distilling iconic and random concepts in to a title that's easy to play and fun to experience. Players can choose between touch or tilt controls for their magnet, however thanks to the way the physics simulation works neither one is truly superior to the other. Dragging your magnet around…

Gravity Block Review

Review Playsteria By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 11 months ago
Gravity Block Review

Gravity Block by Playsteria is nominally a physics based puzzler, but leaving it there would be doing the game a disservice. Much like Labyrinth-clones, players must transport an inanimate block to the exit through a maze of conveyor belts, traps, disappearing walls and warps, but instead of analogue tilt controls all you can do is change the direction of gravity. The screen is split in to quadrants, allowing you to quickly tap and redirect the direction your cube can fall in. A small…

iFlexis Review

Review Thumbstar Games Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 11 months ago
iFlexis Review

Wrapping your head around iFlexis by Thumbstar Games is a little hard, but if you were to combine Tetris with bouncy physics and a three-match game you'd at least be in the right vicinity. At first glance, the comparison to Tetris is immediately apparent, with familiarly shaped block configurations of various colors descending in to place at the bottom of the screen. However, once the objects are touched they come to life with a bouncy rubbery feel that can be swung around your finger…

Shadow Candy: SUGAR RUSH! Review

Review POWapp By Andrew Nesvadba, 8 years ago
Shadow Candy: SUGAR RUSH! Review

**UPDATE** The new 'Skilled' mode definitely adds a much needed sense of challenge; while the improvements in jumping and movement may only be tiny, however the game is feels easier to control. These changes have definitely brought this game back in line and even thought it's still a generic platformer, it's a change for the better and a huge boon to fans of Shadow Candy. Based on the ongoing comic series 'Shadow Candy' available in the App Store, 'SUGAR RUSH!' is a generic platfor…

Flick Football Review

Review Neon Play By Andrew Nesvadba, 8 years ago
Flick Football Review

Flick Football by Neon Play joins other simple endless flick-based physics games with its soccer-based free kick style. Much like its paper-throwing, pigskin kicking and coin-bouncing compatriots there's an art to successfully scoring each goal, but while serious players can duke it out for the high-scores, casual gamers can easily while-away free seconds of their day to occasionally score big and earn bragging rights on Facebook. Basic flicks will kick the ball in the direction you i…

iQuarters Review

It's a common pub past-time, but flicking quarters has finally found a home on your iPhone, keeping your fingers, change and tables safe from damage. iQuarters by Incredible Technologies is a simple physics simulator that will suit anyone who likes to play casually or competitively. Much like Paper Toss, iQuarters uses a simple flick system to determine the power and direction of your shot. Tapping the angle button in the corner allows you to fine tune the average distance of each sho…

Mr Onions Review

Mr Onions Review

Mr Onions is out for a bike ride and needs to get back home with all of his groceries intact, but someone keeps putting all these obstacles in his way! In this interesting physics puzzle platformer by Stuart Atkinson you'll have to help Mr Onion by maintaining your speed and balance to safely jump rivers or even the occasionally stalled vehicle. The tilt controls can be quite sensitive, so some practice is required to come to grips with the game's physics. Notably, in order to gain sp…

William Tale Review

William Tale Review

William Tale (not to be confused with the William Tell tale) is an archery style game from Nebula Soft where you'll find yourself shooting apples off a very patient friend (wait a moment); shooting apples out of a tree (Oh?); and defend your corn from pigs and birds invading your farm (see, definitely not William Tell!). Like so many archery-style games, the controls leave a lot to be desired and minor shifts in your finger resulting in an erroneous shot. Touching the screen initiates…
