Tiki Smasher Review

Review JetFable By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Tiki Smasher Review

It's not hard to stumble around the iTunes store and find a handful of great castle defense games, but it's somewhat harder to find truly unique variations on the genre. Tiki Smasher by JetFable takes physics based castle defense games in a new direction by using a tilt-controlled pinball to smash against enemies, making their game incredibly simple to play and enjoy. Several Tiki totems have enlisted your help to defend them from native tribes and animals who are out to destroy them.…

Review OOO Gameprom By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Pinball HD iPad Review

Previously available as a series of collectable games with various tables for your iPhone, The Pinball HD brings OOO Gameprom's style of pinball to the iPad as a complete package. Getting started couldn't be easier with the plunger being controlled by a simple touch and drag to launch your ball. The table's flippers are activated by touching either side of the game screen, providing a basic and responsive way to control the game. There's no tutorial available to teach you how to play…

Review RedLynx Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Monster Trucks Nitro 2 Review

Yeeehaw! I lurves me some Monster Trucks! But in all seriousness, who doesn't get a little bit excited by these oversized vehicular behemoths and their destructive powers? Maybe you've never thought about it, but Monster Trucks Nitro 2 by RedLynx will make a believer of you as you flip, boost and smash your way to first place in this side-scrolling tilt racer.

Monster Crush - Demolition Review

Review 628 Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Monster Crush - Demolition Review

We've all seen physics simulators used in a slew of games, but few have gone quite so far as Monster Crush by 628 Games. Demolishing buildings and crushing enemies might make this sound like another game like Angry Birds, but for the first time buildings and material are given an almost complete set of destructible properties that you'll need to take full advantage of. As the title suggests the main aim of the game is to crush the bad guys, in this case a race of aliens. To pull this…

Paper Bridge Review

Review Clever Hamster Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Paper Bridge Review

Paper Bridge by Clever Hamster Games brings bridge building games back to its roots, using simple physics and simple mechanics to give gamers a chance to relax their lateral thinking brain and give some air to their literal thinking brain. I'm fairly sure I just made those last two things up, but where games like Tiki Towers may require you to think outside the box, Paper Bridge lets you stick to basic engineering principles to get the job done. Only three tools are given to draw your…

Bounce On 2: Drallo's Demise Review

Review Team Phobic By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Bounce On 2: Drallo's Demise Review

Barring the excellent return to form of Sonic Rush, SEGA have had troubles recapturing what made Sonic the Hedgehog such a great platformer. It's hard to shake the feeling that Team Phobic have cracked an element of what made Sonic so good and have distilled it in to their latest game Bounce On 2: Drallo's Demise. There are two basic movement controls with the default being tilt based, but for those who are more comfortable with virtual pads buttons are also available. The level of co…

Flick Bowling 2 Review

Review Freeverse, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Flick Bowling 2 Review

If Doc Brown from Back To The Future had a crazy German half-brother, he'd be Baron Von Schtopwatch, the mad professor who hassles Jim and Jen at their local bowling alley. Stay with me on this one because it gets weirder. Your goal is to return to the modern day while challenging figures from history after Von Schtopwatch sends you back to ancient Egypt. Storyline aside, Flick Bowling 2 by Freeverse is a strange beast to handle. The "true to life" physics as the developers put it mak…

Blast Off Review

Review Halfbrick Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Blast Off Review

Physics is your friend. That is to say, forces related to physics like gravity are a small comfort for those of us terrestrially bound. For those flying around tiny clusters of super-dense planetoids, black holes and white holes while rescuing the occasional astronaut, physics can be a royal pain in the rear-end. Blast Off by Halfbrick Studios is a physics based puzzle game that combines action elements to provide a devilish challenge. Blast Off uses a single-touch system, propelling…

ZombieSmash Review

Review Zynga Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
ZombieSmash Review

Sure, you could keep throwing knights and goblins and other creepy crawlies in to pits of fire or feed them to your pet dragon, but why do that when you could be enjoying ZombieSmash! by German developer Gamedoctors? With all the charm of games like Plants vs. Zombies and physics inspired mayhem straight out of Home Alone, it's a game that keeps on giving well after you're done with the campaign. In a bid to separate itself from other flick-based castle defense games, ZombieSmash! sho…

Ice Bullet Review

Review David Fernandez Vara By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 7 months ago
Ice Bullet Review

If there's one thing certain about the Olympics (summer or winter), is that there will be many videogames made to capatilize on the events. Bobsleigh is one such event that seems like a good idea for a videogame and a great idea for an iphone game, especially using tilt controls. Ice Bullet sets out to deliver a Bobsleigh experience on the iphone, but does it replicate the speed and danger of its real life counterpart? Control is tilt based, with leaning forward used for braking aroun…


Funkyball Worlds Review

Review Handmark, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Funkyball Worlds Review

Sometimes it's frustrating to find that a new App that strives to be more than just a simple mechanic palmed off as the entire game itself. Funkyball Worlds by Handmark is a stand-out from the most other physics-based platformers thanks to its charming elegance that makes it easy to pick up and play, but hard to put down. The trick to Funkyball is all in the friction. Levels consist of a series of platforms that need to be navigated while avoiding traps as you charge your way to the g…

Chalkboard Stunts Review

Review Manta Research By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
Chalkboard Stunts Review

In the Alpine Crawler World review, the term physics racer was used. This seems an apt title as any to describe Chalkboard Stunts. Your tiny car has to drive over a landscape of chalk ramps and jumps to get to the raceflag as quickly as possible. Your car is controlled by two arrow buttons on the sides of the screen. One accelerates left, the other right. The buttons above it are for turning your car in air to land correctly, or righting it when you've flipped. At any time, the screen…

Alpine Crawler World Review

Review Dimension Technics By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
Alpine Crawler World Review

It's hard to put Alpine Crawler World (ACW) into a genre. It's part racer, and part physics sim. Like its predecessor, and Moto X Mayhem, you have to finish the race in as short a time as possible, but the terrain, and the bounciness of your vehicle make that a lot harder than it sounds. Control is quite clever. On the left and right of the screen, there are accelerator and brake pedals. You tap them and then drag down to put your foot on them to drive or stop. Any slams to your car w…

Ragdoll Blaster 2 Review

Review Backflip Studios By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
Ragdoll Blaster 2 Review

Ragdoll Blaster was a really fun game by Backflip Studios. Trying to shoot ragdolls out of cannons into a target in as few shots as possible made for some clever level design and addictive gameplay. Well, the sequel is upon us, and the goal is the same. The question is have they expanded upon the idea enough to warrant an entirely new game? Control is just like the first. Touch the screen to shoot the cannon. The power of the shot is determined by how close or far away from the cannon…
