Tiki Towers Review

Review GameHouse By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
Tiki Towers Review

Physics based games are popular to some and frustrating to others. The bridge builder has been a sub genre that exemplifies this. In Tiki Towers you have a limited amount of bamboo to build a structure that will withstand the amount of force swinging monkeys will put on it as they make their way to the exit, grabbing bananas along the way. Control is pretty decent. You click or drag from a build point to create bamboo structures. Once satisfied, click the action button and see how it…

Stair Dismount Universal Review

Review Secret Exit Ltd. By Kym Holmes, 4 years, 5 months ago
Stair Dismount Universal Review

Pushing someone down a flight of stairs is dangerous and not recommended. In the case of Stair Dismount, it's not only acceptable, it's your objective. The more bones you break and injuries you cause, the more points you score. Of course it's only a dummy, so don't try this at home. The controls are fairly straight forward: position an arrow on the dummy as your "push zone" and then click the large button when the meter reaches the strength you want to use. This will send your ragdoll…

Eveningstar Review

Review Divine Robot Ltd By Kym Holmes, 4 years, 5 months ago
Eveningstar Review

Eveningstar is a forward scrolling shoot em up with a slightly different focus on the way you destroy enemies. The goal, as with most shoot em ups, is to fly to the end of the level killing enemies along the way to eventually take down the boss. The difference that Eveningstar uses to separate it from any other space shoot em ups is that you have an energy ball floating around the ship that acts as your primary weapon. To control the ship, you simply move your finger around the screen…

Review NAMCO BANDAI Games By Kym Holmes, 4 years, 6 months ago
Isaac Newton's Gravity Review

Tumbledrop Review

Review Starfruit Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Tumbledrop Review

Tumbledrop by Starfruit Games is a beguiling and challenging physics puzzler with a cutesy style that borders on excessive. The magic of this App comes from not only attempting to solve puzzles normally, but also how it rewards repeat players. Each level involves solving an intricate puzzle by getting the "pink star" to land on the available safe zone(s). However the challenge comes from attempting to do so while the star starts in a precariously balanced position. Tapping blocks will…

Zwirn Review

Review luridmorn By Luke Bartley, 4 years, 6 months ago
Zwirn Review

Zwirn is an interesting game to say the least. Though first impressions are somewhat similar to Zen Bound, they are unfortunately only skin deep. Zwirn (German for twine) is a quirky puzzle game where players manipulate a piece of string from its starting point, and thread it around the level so it touches all black dots simultaneously by the time you reach the end. The first four levels are supposed to act as a tutorial, unfortunately they are not of much help. Rather than give you w…


Bear Paw Review

Review Neil Balharrie By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Bear Paw Review

If there's one word to describe Bear Paw by Neil Balharrie, it's "elegant". Simplicity is the key to this orbit physics simulator and with its basic controls and basic gameplay Bear Paw is more about enjoying the experience than beating it. Like other orbit simulators, the goal is to stay alive for a set period of time. Each level is played the same way with players setting up their ship with a touch and giving it a trajectory and power with a slide of the finger. After this control i…
