Shark Dash Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Shark Dash Review

After first learning about Shark Dash, one thought pinged around my mind, 'I wonder who developed this game for Chillingo/Clickgamer'... after a double-take I realized I was dealing with a Gameloft title and my world promptly fell on its head. All of this may sound melodramatic, but gamers have long come to terms with the App Store's cliches, though if Shark Dash proves anything it's that Gameloft has the chops to produce fresh and addictive games. You should know the basic formula by…

MotoHeroz Review

Review Ubisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
MotoHeroz Review

Much like CAVE and their predictable, but almost always excellent bullet-hell shooters, RedLynx can be counted upon to add to their collection of time-trial titles. Fresh off the heels of their update to the Draw Race series, MotoHeroz is a side-on time-trial racer, but it's not entirely new for the company as it repackages a stripped down version of the Nintendo Wii title of the same name for the iOS platform. 'Stripped down' has such a nasty sound to it though and all you're likely…

Bubble Jets Review

Review Social Agogo By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Bubble Jets Review

[This is review is featured in the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 16th of March, 2012 as its Mini-Review of the week] It's quite possible that as a child you were subjected to the evil frustration that was the water-jet puzzle. While they came in a whole range of styles, their most important feature was a complex maze of blockades that prevented you from successfully floating whatever it was inside the water in to its goal. After several maddening afternoons I must have sworn them off co…

Final Freeway 2R Review

Review NEWTYPE K.K. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Final Freeway 2R Review

Weren't racing games at the arcades awesome back in the day? They usually had this giant car cabinet that you sat in. There was a steering wheel, and pedals. Sometimes even a gearbox! Sure the physics and the graphics have gotten a lot better over the years, and you can buy these elaborate peripherals for home use, but the experience is more than a little diluted. Still, we appreciate a throwback to simpler times and that's exactly what Final Freeway 2R offers. Let's get the compariso…

Coco Loco™ Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Coco Loco™ Review

Coco Loco is not what you would call a mellow game. Instead it's what you might call a mallow game. Some of your gooey marshmallow cohorts have been taken prisoner by the primitive chocolate guardians, and what follows is an adventure over many candied lands to rescue them and deliver a unique brand of delicious vengeance. This is a physics flinger as popularized by the now infamous Angry Birds, but before you switch off your interest, you should hear what Coco Loco has to offer, as i…

Munch Time Review

Review Gamistry By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Munch Time Review

I hate to sound like a broken record, but if I'm going to talk about Munch Time from Gamistry, I'm also going to have to talk about it being a 'cute, 3-star, physics-based puzzler'. I say this as though it's a mark against Gamistry, the developer behind this title, but it's not - what it is, is an indicator of just how hard the game needs to work to pull ahead of a fiercely contended pack of games seeking to jostle for first place. Munch Time revolves around the super-cute chameleon u…

Diggin' Dogs Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Diggin' Dogs Review

In a world ruled by cute dogs, three adventurers will dig their way through hazardous caverns in order to retrieve the lost pirate-dog treasure, along with a few bones - because, you know, they might get hungry too! Diggin' Dogs by Soap Creative and Chillingo is a hard game to pin down despite bearing a striking similarity to similar treasure hunting titles of the past. You see, the dogs you control (as well as the environment itself) is subject to the physical influences of your iDev…

Ragdoll Blaster 3 Review

Review Backflip Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Ragdoll Blaster 3 Review

If you can't beat'em, join'em - it seems to be a rallying cry for many titles of late and so it's no surprise to see Ragdoll Blaster 3, the latest release in Backflip Studios' flagship games, joining the 'cute and cuddly' revolution. We won't blame them though because the upside is the addition of four new 'ragdolls', each with their own unique skills to add to the game's already fun physics gameplay. One thing the shift from a stylized design to a friendlier 'cute' motif has changed…

Sploosh Review

Review Spooky Moon Studio Limited By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Sploosh Review

Sometimes it's nice to leave the adrenaline pumping, high speed, obstacle avoiding, death defying games for a while and play something with a slower pace. What's more relaxing than the ambient sounds of running water? And what if you had control over that water, tilting your iPhone around to pour it into the seeds of flowers and roots of trees to rehydrate the land? Well that's where Sploosh comes in. It seems sometimes cacti get a little too greedy and suck up all the water, sending f…

Hank Hazard Review

Review Red Rocket Games, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Hank Hazard Review

It's hard to complain about 'yet another cute physics puzzler' when you're talking about a release from Chillingo, the publisher who is almost entirely responsible for the popularity of the concept. As such it's almost no surprise to note that Hank Hazard by Red Rocket Games fits this bill almost exclusively, however behind its cute exterior and 3-star item collection beats a fantastic little title that shares more with classics like Finger Physics than it does with Cut The Rope or Ang…

Vanessa Saint-Pierre Delacroix Review

Review Replay Games, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Vanessa Saint-Pierre Delacroix Review

Vanessa Saint-Pierre Delacroix and her nightmare. Man that's a mouthful isn't it? Still, a title like that certainly breeds curiosity. While the game itself may not be what one expects from the title, the tone certainly is. In a very well told intro we learn that Vanessa is a brainy puzzle loving young girl who feels ostracized from her peers at the schoolyard. One day a strange puzzle box that she acquired from her father's antiquities shop breaks and sucks the entire town inside it.…

Toy Shot™ Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Toy Shot™ Review

Sometimes all you need for a good game idea is to take an existing game type and add something new to it. Toy Shot takes the flinging physics fun found in such games as Angry Birds and Crush the Castle, wraps it up it up in LEGO blocks and gives you the most unique aiming system we've seen in one of these games yet. Does it make it stand out from the pack however? The aiming system is a bulls-eye, and when you drag your finger out from it, you create a circle with a line. This stays p…

Greedy Penguins™ Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Greedy Penguins™ Review

I'm not the first person to point it out, but when did penguins become such a regular theme on the App Store? In any case, Greedy Penguins by Shamrock Games and Chillingo seemingly painted itself in to a corner by choosing to jump in to the 'cute, 3-star physics puzzler' arena and decided to go the whole-hog. Don't mistake this for another Cut the Rope though - while similar concepts are in play, timing your drops to get the right fish to the right penguin isn't as easy as you'd think.…

Smash Cops Review

Review Hutch Games Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Smash Cops Review

There's just something about someone surviving horrible car-crash that seems to draw in a crowd, be it at a sporting event, in a movie or more excitingly in a reality TV show with cops chasing criminals. Smash Cops by Hutch Games taps in to this mental space, placing you behind the wheel of a cop chasing down criminals (amongst other tasks), bullying them off the road to make your arrest. Despite the game's lusciously realistic presentation, not an ounce of reality exists within the g…

Super Crate Box Review

Review Vlambeer By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Super Crate Box Review

Too often gamers bring down the mighty wrath of the collective community down upon a game for being a 'clone'. While sometimes justified (especially if artistic theft is involved), more often than not gamers are simply witnessing the natural progression of any new idea to mass production and eventual refinement in to a genre. Super Crate Box by Vlambeer and Halfbot is arguably the progenitor of its particular flavor and style of arcade action-platforming, but with competitors already m…
