Smash Hit Review

Review Mediocre AB By Alex Beech, 7 months, 2 weeks ago
Smash Hit Review

If we had to invent a genre label for Smash Hit, we'd have to go with endless-shatterer. It's a fitting title for a game which involves flying unendingly forward through a world of glass, using marbles to shatter any obstacles in your path. This is harder than it sounds, however. Colliding with any object in the world sees you dropping ten of your marbles. Once they are all gone, it's game over. Thus selective and judicious hurling is what is required to successfully navigate fr…

God of Light Review

Review Playmous By Alex Beech, 7 months, 3 weeks ago
God of Light Review

In some ways Playmous's new game, God of Light, reminds us of the album art for Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon - it focuses on a beam of light, and it has a sweet soundtrack. Taking control of a glowing ball called Shiny, you have to bounce a ray of light off various reflective flowers to reach the Source of Life. Things aren't quite that straightforward, however. You see, you begin all of God of Light's mazes in darkness.  Tapping on Shiny allows you to easily rotate the si…

Sky Hero™ Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Sky Hero™ Review

Your fortress is under attack, a message needs to be relayed to headquarters. What is a brave soldier to do? Why it is his prerogative, nay his duty, to leap from the tower and free fall to victory, avoiding enemy bombardment on the way down. Sky Hero puts you in the floppy pants of such a soldier. Your plummet is closely being followed by a menacing fire beast as well as his minions, which consist of barrels, cannons, and hacksaw carrying birdies. Tilting is the name of the game as y…

Freeze! Review

Review Andreas von Lepel By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Freeze! Review

There haven't been too many, but there's something enjoyable about games that stick you in small curved level, and ask you to use the iPhone's tilt controls and the power of physics to get the character you control to safety. Freeze is the latest of these, and it comes to us wrapped in a 50s monster movie shell. It certainly adds an amount of mood and character to the game, but the big question is of course, how does it play? The answer to that questions is. “adequately”.…

Pong®World Review

Review Atari By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
Pong®World Review

There's a small backstory to Pong World by Atari and zGames. To celebrate the game's 40h anniversary, Atari sought out Indie developers to update the classic arcade game, and the end result is a fantastic concept that gives the game a shufflepuck-like spin by giving the player direct control over the action. However a great idea can only take you so far when it's smothered by a relentless freemium model of almost endless monotonous gameplay, and design decisions that hamper the gamepl…

3volution - A Primordial Soup Challenge Review

Review ZAKI By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
3volution - A Primordial Soup Challenge Review

Why is the E in evolution turned around into a 3 for the sake of this title? Well because the whole concept of primordial evolution is apparently aided by three helpers named Nunstuck, Git, and Slotermeyer. 3Volution has you evolving through life forms in what amounts to sort of a high speed soccer game, complete with power-ups and obstacles creating an experience that can be unfair and over before you know it, but set up so that you instantly press retry to give the whole affair anoth…

Trauma Ted Review

Review Lonely Pin PocketGames By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Trauma Ted Review

We've all played oh so many games like Trauma Ted. The quick, easy to play bursts of puzzle-y goodness, the simple yet endearing art and music, the level menu strewn with numbered tiles for all the options available. It seems that aside from some revolutionary gameplay ideas, the only thing that can make a game like this interesting after so many others is the premise. Well how about helping an injured cat with a migraine feed his painkiller addiction level by level, utilizing wrap aro…

Nutty Fluffies Rollercoaster Review

Review Ubisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Nutty Fluffies Rollercoaster Review

There's something about the iOS platform and roller-coasters that just seems to 'work'. Be it tilting to keep passengers inside or flicking to avoid animals on a rampage, there's an almost innate reaction to the peril suffered by those locked on the rails that makes you want to save them. RedLynx goes one further and packs their coasters with cute stuffed animals, though it's hard to say whether the squeaking passengers help or hinder in this regard. Still, this isn't the company's fi…

Lotsa Blocks Review

Review Backabit By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Lotsa Blocks Review

The physics block stacking game is an established mobile genre. Even more than that, giving the blocks (or whatever you happen to be balancing) personalities isn't anything new either. None of this is a problem if you can deliver the content in an interesting and entertaining way. Does Lotsa Blocks accomplish this? Let's find out. The goal in adventure mode is to stack blocks on the teetering balance beam to reach the finish line placed somewhere above. Before dragging the blocks from…

MONOPOLY Millionaire Review

Review Electronic Arts By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 12 months ago
MONOPOLY Millionaire Review

There's a lot to be said for the mobile versions of Monopoly that EA have released over the years. In my experience, no game is responsible for causing more arguments amongst friends (maybe Mario Kart), so it's nice to be able to enjoy such a well designed take on capitalism playing against computer controlled opponents. For those of you who don't have a problem playing with friends, there's always that option too, and plenty of tweaks to create the type of game you want to play. So t…

Super Falling Fred Review

Super Falling Fred Review

Dedalord is back again, this time with a free-to-play update to Falling Fred. The 'super' isn't without its merit either as players get to combine a whole host of new power-ups to survive all-new deadly depths. Oh, and Fred isn't alone this time - he gets to share his pain with a range of new characters too. All you need to do to score it large is to avoid hazards in the vertical shaft Fred and company are falling down - it sounds easy, and thanks to the auto-calibrated tilt controls…

Carmageddon Review

Carmageddon Review

When you have cars, a race-track and checkpoints, your first assumption is generally that the game you're playing is a racer. If we were to forget about Carmageddon's colorful history, you'd likely approach the game like any other, but you'd be playing it wrong. See, it's not that you can't race to the finish line, but rather that it's not the most profitable, be it for your in-game piggy bank or for your more intangible emotional piggy bank. Some days you just want to tear something a…

Re-Volt Classic Review

Re-Volt Classic Review

Not everything is better the second time around - sure we can point to the many 'Karting' titles of the 90s, including greats like the Micro Machines series, but it's 2012 and you'd hope the formula would have changed by now. Re-Volt was, for its time, a fun and frantic 3D racer with a toy's-eye-view of the world, but with little changed since its release the title feels like it hasn't fared well over time. After picking from the initial set of unlocked vehicles the player is able to…
