Puddle Puzzles Review

Review ChaosTrend Ltd By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 1 month 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, 3 years, 1 month 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, 3 years, 1 month 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 Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month 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, 3 years, 1 month 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, 3 years, 1 month 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, 3 years, 1 month 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, 3 years, 1 month 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, 3 years, 2 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 Polarbit By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 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…

Burn The City Review

Review Josh Brown By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 2 months ago
Burn The City Review

It's probably unfair to keep comparing these physics destruction games to Angry Birds, but while playing Burn the City, how can you not? In an interesting spin on things, you take control of a giant fire breathing lizard. When I say control, he just sits there as you command which trajectory to shoot fire at in order to destroy all the buildings on screen. The name of the game is maximizing your score. Upon your fireball hitting a highrise, structural weakpoints become available. Hitt…

Magnetic Baby Review

Review Bravery By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Magnetic Baby Review

Sometimes I feel making a comparison is like ripping off a medical adhesive strip - you know it's going to hurt, but sometimes it's needed. So yes, Magnetic Baby by Bravery Plus has many similarities to Super Mario Galaxy, but - and this is the important part - beyond this the challenging physics based puzzle platformer feels like an entirely different beast. For starters, the somewhat bizarre landscape presents a unique obstacle in more ways than one. Ultimately your aim is to collec…

Mooniacs Review

Mooniacs Review

When transporting Jujubees, it’s probably best not to tie the crate to your rocket with a rope. At least, this is what I have gathered from the introduction to Mooniacs by Bad Juju Games and Namco Networks. So, as it would happen, in order to collect the precious cargo you’ll have to combine the capabilities of each Mooniac by bouncing them around the screen in a precise manner. With that said, ‘precise’ isn’t easy to gauge. Players only have one try to c…

FishMoto Review

Review Overpowered Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
FishMoto Review

Call me crazy, but I get this overwhelming nostalgic urge for playing Earthworm Jim when playing FishMoto by Overpowered Games. I put it down to the main character feeling like it belongs in world designed by David Perry - seriously look at it... it's a 'cat faced' fish in a sealed fishbowl, atop a vehicle with springs for legs.  But I digress. FishMoto falls in to the same category of skill based racers as iStunt, challenging you to collect all the available 'fish' in a level be…

Drop The Chicken Review

Review AppInTheBox By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
Drop The Chicken Review

Although a balanced diet for a chicken can be quite varied, it's hard for me to imagine the dirt-scratching birds chomping down on a meal of flies. In reality it's not that strange at all, but the problem most chickens face is catching them in the first place. Drop The Chicken by Sharp Creative Agency proposes a somewhat novel, Rube Goldberg inspired solution to help some chickens in supplementing their diet. The basic setup will be familiar to anyone who has been paying attention to…
