Drop The Chicken Review

Review AppInTheBox By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 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…

1000 Heroz Review

Review RedLynx Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
1000 Heroz Review

RedLynx likes a good racer, though it seems they have an allergic reaction to vanilla racers, preventing them from making a bland title that most people would recognize. Some would consider it risky to flirt with these sorts unique ideas, but they're not slowing down and their current front-runner is 1000 Heroz. Every day you'll get to compete with people around the world with a new 'hero' and a new level, but you only get 24 hours to make your mark before starting anew. The game itse…

Chop Chop Slicer Review

Review Gamerizon By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Chop Chop Slicer Review

The Chop Chop series of titles from Gamerizon has expanded once again with 'Slicer' following hot on the heels of their other recent release 'Rocket'. Chop Chop Slicer continues the adventures of the space-faring traveler of 'Rocket' as he crash-lands on an alien planet and must defend himself by slicing incoming enemies as quickly as possible. The arcade swiping gameplay is a fun mix between Fruit Ninja and Slice It! and players must react quickly to incoming enemies, slicing accurat…

Max Damage Review

Review Digital Goldfish Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Max Damage Review

Max likes to blow things up. Some would say this makes him a social time-bomb, but then again others would gladly place a cannon in his hands to see what happens. Max Damage by Digital Goldfish sets aside the worrying idea that people have left a weapon along with their expensive goods in the vicinity of such a disturbed child and goes with the flow. Instead of having specific objects that need to be destroyed (say like pigs), you need to aim for the most amount of destruction, target…

Feed Me Oil Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Feed Me Oil Review

There's something distinctly disturbing about Feed Me Oil by Chillingo and HolyWaterGames - while the amazing fluid mechanics could be considered uncanny, the unnerving variety of creatures you end up 'feeding' are almost the stuff of nightmares. Though feed them you will as you obsess over engineering the perfect machines for transporting oil from the pipe and in to the monster's mouth(s). The immediate impression you get on loading up the game is one of a re-imagined World of Goo, b…

House of Mice Review

Review Delusion Studio Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
House of Mice Review

Have you ever wondered what M.A.D. Cat from Inspector Gadget does in his spare time? Other than being petted by Dr. Claw that is. It seems he gets up to trouble with the local mice who have come to the conclusion that they can defeat their feline foe by rolling up and exploding like miniature bombs. In House of Mice by Delusion Studio you'll need to direct these furry packages of doom towards the smug cat that taunts them from afar. Ok, so it's not actually M.A.D. Cat, but more of a c…

To-Fu: The Trials of Chi Review

Review HotGen Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
To-Fu: The Trials of Chi Review

Part physics platformer, part puzzle, all tofu - To-Fu: The Trials of Chi by HotGen is only as hard as you want it to be, making this the perfect distraction for almost any gamer. Your basic goal is simple - make your way to the fortune cookie by throwing yourself around the level while sticking, sliding and bouncing off the various surfaces around you. This, however, short-changes you of the challenge of flinging To-Fu around the level, avoiding traps while collecting 'chi' or attemp…

Touchgrind BMX Review

Review Illusion Labs By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Touchgrind BMX Review

Touchgrind BMX by Illusion Labs is the sort of game that builds fans; not just the regular kind that love the game, but the kind that's willing to give a game a shot because it's made by 'that' company. BMX has come a long way since the 2008 finger-flipping skateboard game from the early days of the App Store and anyone who has spent time enjoying games like Tony Hawk's Pro Skater are likely to lose themselves for days on this high-scoring title. After watching three brief in-game tut…

Storm in a Teacup Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Storm in a Teacup Review

Although we've seen attempts at it before, Storm in a Teacup by Chillingo and Cobra Mobile is perhaps the first game to truly capture the feel of Little Big Planet on the App Store in a meaningful way. Whether this was the game's intention or not, this little platformer takes you through a variety of worlds while testing your skill at mastering its quirky physics and mini-games you'd not ordinarily expect from this sort of title. At first the game presents itself as a fairly standard…

Bug Chucker Review

Review Cyan Worlds By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Bug Chucker Review

While it's no real defense, being original can be difficult, so sometimes it's best to embrace what you are and simply come up with something interesting. Bug Chucker by Cyan Worlds may take its inspirations from App Store classics, but the overall result is something far more intricate and complex, making it a difficult game to compare. Many players will be familiar with the basic setup as you fling objects with a cannon in an attempt to blow up enemies on the screen. Instead of Eart…

Nano Panda Review

Review Unit9 By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Nano Panda Review

Don't be fooled by this game's cute exterior - the panda's may be cute and the panicked reactions of the evil atoms may be amusing, but Nano Panda by Unit9 isn't for the easily frustrated. While the idea of destroying atoms with cute pandas may sound like a recipe for heart-break, you'll soon wish you could fire a thousand pandas in to a thousand atoms just to get some satisfaction. It sounds like I'm raging out on the game, but let me be perfectly clear - the game is insanely addictiv…

Catch The Candy Review

Review Bulkypix By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Catch The Candy Review

So... you've got some candy and you've got a rope (of sorts), but in Catch the Candy by Bulkypix and FedoIT there's no cutting required. In fact the squishy little blue/purple fuzzball you control is like Spiderman if Spiderman lived in a quaint forest and used his powers to eat candy. The analogy, aside from odd, is actually apt as each of the 53 currently available levels are completed by flinging a sticky limb out from the little monster in order to grab on to objects and swing aro…

Air Force vs Luftwaffe Review

Review Bitmen Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Air Force vs Luftwaffe Review

Although we've been here before, side-scrolling dogfighting sims aren't exactly floating around in a huge supply and while games like MiniSquadron ruled the roost in the past, Air Force vs Luftwaffe by Bitmen Studios tries to help the genre grow-up. Injecting a bit of realism in to the proceedings helps immensely as each plane smoothly tumbles and turns its way around the screen, responding to the tilt and touch controls crisply. Acceleration is also affected by gravity, causing plane…

Foodies Review

Review Nano Titans Co. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Foodies Review

Maybe I'm a jaded old-soul, but there are few moments where I catch myself actually smiling, let alone laughing out loud at blatantly silly things. Yet, loading up Foodies by Nano Titans and being introduced to the game's main character did just this, coloring the game with a tinge of glee and amusement. Foodies takes advantage of the platform it's on by providing controls and a style of gameplay that's unique to a touch-screen, adding a novelty factor that is delightful all by itself…

Jump Out!™ Review

Review Avallon Alliance Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Jump Out!™ Review

Some may lead and others may follow, but in either case when it comes to video games the winner is always the consumer. While Jump Out! by Avallon Alliance has shades of Cut The Rope slathered all over it, I really can't bring myself to be upset – honestly, who can remain upset looking at those insanely adorable bugs. Players will find themselves traversing through 60 currently available levels over two environments, flinging bugs from the safety of their rotating bottle-caps an…
