Bike Baron Review

Review Mountain Sheep By Andrew Nesvadba, 6 years, 7 months ago
Bike Baron Review

Bike Baron by Qwiboo and Mountain Sheep is not the first to strap a happy-go-lucky stunt driver in to a vehicle and point them towards a lethal combination of ramps and explosives, nor will it be the last. What it lacks in original concept it makes up for with sheer polished gameplay and design, going so far as to also include the iOS community in the process of level creation. If you're looking for a storyline, you're sorely out of luck as the Bike Baron is simply a daredevil without…

Roll in the Hole Review

Review EA Chillingo By Dave Flodine, 6 years, 7 months ago
Roll in the Hole Review

When you start playing a game titled Roll in the Hole, you expect two things. Rolling, and a hole to roll into. You'll be happy to know that this game delivers on both those fronts. You play Popo the fat Panda. A mean Gorilla has stolen all your ice cream and you must chase him down the only way you can, by rolling into oblivion. You would think that a game based around rolling would revolve around tilt controls, but funnily enough, Roll in the Hole uses the touch screen. The screen i…

Commander Pixman Review

Review One Minute Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 6 years, 7 months ago
Commander Pixman Review

As someone who had to slog his way through the 80s and 90s and the gaming obsession with platformers, coming across one of these genre classics these days is met with trepidation. I say this because we have a rich history of what does and doesn't work, including other less tangible aspects like how the should 'feel'. Commander Pixman gets the first part right as it smooshes Super Meat Boy with the visual stylings of the free game Star Guard, but something about this game by One Minute…

Monster Island Review

Review Miniclip.com By Dave Flodine, 6 years, 7 months ago
Monster Island Review

One has to wonder when the gameplay concept of flinging a creature across an oddly shaped level in order to destroy other creatures who are minding their own business becomes stale. It doesn't look like that scenario is upon us anytime soon however since Monster Island calls on the inspiration of Miniclip's earlier title Fragger to deliver a fun physics based flinger. So it seems that there are some monsters enjoying the monster-y good life on their monster island. Then some monster t…

Where's My Water? Review

Review Disney By Andrew Nesvadba, 6 years, 8 months ago
Where's My Water? Review

All it takes is one game to really shine to make my week feel great and it's even better when it comes from a game you least expected the feeling to come from. As much as the 'cute creature physics puzzler' formula has been exploited on the App Store, Creature Feep and Disney's latest title Where's My Water? is just too charming and too fun to ignore. Those familiar with Doodle Lab101 by FunTribe will be right at home as the basic gameplay revolves around shifting a liquid (water in t…

Puddle Puzzles Review

Review ChaosTrend Ltd By Dave Flodine, 6 years, 9 months ago
Puddle Puzzles Review

The cute purple blobby thing-a-ma-jig named Puddles finds herself in a series of lab experiments. What they are trying to test is beyond me but the point is that as the player you need to guide Puddles through a series of rooms, eating gems, floating on water, avoiding spikes, and reaching the portal. The game has two methods of leading Puddles to safety. On land, rotating the iPhone will roll Puddles in that direction or make her fall to a new surface. Rotating also changes the water…

Sprinkle: Water splashing fire fighting fun! Review

Review Mediocre AB By Dave Flodine, 6 years, 9 months ago
Sprinkle: Water splashing fire fighting fun! Review

There have been a few games in the App Store that have had players putting out fires with hoses, but none of them have seemed to pull it off with such finesse as the developers of Sprinkle have. It seems that Earth tourists are constantly crashing into the straw huts on Titan, one of Saturn's moons. Rather than let the inhabitants have their homes destroyed, it's up to you to man the water cannon and put out the fires, wasting as little water as possible. The hose is manned by three c…

Treemaker Review

Review Mikrotie Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 6 years, 9 months ago
Treemaker Review

I often wonder where all the ninja-rope swinging titles that had once captured the mobile gaming consciousness not so long ago disappeared to and then Treemaker by Mikrotie comes along to remind me. Rope swinging lives and dies upon the player's ability to predict where they're going at all times, giving them a level of finesse and control that borders on almost prescient in games like Hook Champ. Instead of predictability, Treemaker makes its swinging mechanic the largest 'challenge'…

Contre Jour Review

Review Maksym Hryniv By Andrew Nesvadba, 6 years, 9 months ago
Contre Jour Review

Mayhap we'll never see the end of this trend of cute-sy characters combined with puzzle gameplay dominating the store, but one thing's for sure, Chillingo has a vested interest in keeping the motif rolling along. While Contre Jour by Mokus may not be as traditionally cartoonish and colorful as recent titles, it fits the template nicely with its scowling, yet playful main character (who happens to be a giant eyeball) as you manipulate his world to get him to each exit. If you've played…

iBlast Moki 2 Review

Review Godzilab By Andrew Nesvadba, 6 years, 9 months ago
iBlast Moki 2 Review

Despite my time at AppSpy, I can't claim to have 'played them all' (the games that is) and as such when a sequel like iBlast Moki 2 from Godzilab drops out of the blue it's hard to know if you're looking at an improvement or just an update. Thankfully it's not hard to use the 'way-back-when' machine to make a comparison and suffice to say if you enjoyed the first title, you're going to have a literal blast with the new one. What makes iBlast Moki 2 so much fun is the way in which play…

Cado Review

Review ClearCut Games By Dave Flodine, 6 years, 9 months ago
Cado Review

Sometimes it's nice to sit back and enjoy a simple game that just feels good to play. Cado by Clearcut games have taken the sketchbook motif that was insanely popular amongst iPhone games a couple years ago and have used it to make a well handled physics action game. Cado, a black ball needs to get to the portal in each stage. The way he travels there is through rotating the level left or right, causing him to roll around the various obstacles into safety. There is also a star to coll…

Siege Hero Review

Review Armor Games Inc By Dave Flodine, 6 years, 9 months ago
Siege Hero Review

There's no denying the success of Angry Birds, and obviously other developers are going to try their hand at the style of gameplay that was popularized by that game, but what about the developer that inspired Angry Birds? Armor Games, creators of Crush the Castle are back with a whole new perspective on the physics destruction genre with Siege Hero. Siege Hero approaches things from a first person perspective. There are still enemies held up in rickety dwellings made of wood, stone, a…

Big Sticky Review

Review BIG BAD BRUSH inc. By Dave Flodine, 6 years, 9 months ago
Big Sticky Review

Big Sticky tells a very familiar video game tale. Your princess has been kidnapped, and it's your job to get her back (plus all the other princesses that have been kidnapped as well). As Sticky the purple Frog Prince, you travel through treacherous worlds level by level, collecting roses, reaching the exit, and doing it all with the power of your incredible tongue. This game is all about the swinging mechanics. You tap a surface to shoot your tongue out at it. Upon hitting it, Sticky…

Torture Bunny Review

Review Clickgamer.com By Dave Flodine, 6 years, 10 months ago
Torture Bunny Review

This review begins with a disclaimer. If a game where you use various instruments to torture a helpless rabbit for a high score sounds awful to you, you may want to stop right here. For those of you interested or amused by this concept, Torture Bunny by Clickgamer may satisfy those dark urges within. Torture Bunny is a ragdoll physics game with a hint of strategy thrown in. There is a bunny in a cage hanging high above the ground. When you press go, he is released, and plummets to his…

Reckless Getaway Review

Review Pixelbite By Andrew Nesvadba, 6 years, 10 months ago
Reckless Getaway Review

While I can't speak for everyone, there's nothing quite like a great car chase scene in a film. Aside from the child-like glee that comes from watching the action and destruction inherent in these scenes, there's another exciting level of knowing you're watching man and machine working in a perfect ballet for the camera. Reckless Getaway by Polarbit and Pixelbite (the developers behind Reckless Racing) have put aside any sense of reality in an attempt to create a madcap, slapstick poin…
