Foodies Review

Review Nano Titans Co. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 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, 2 years, 11 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…

Snuggle Truck Review

Review Owlchemy Labs By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Snuggle Truck Review

Snuggle Truck by Owlchemy Labs is the kind of game you want to hold up as a golden standard of why games need their gameplay to stand on their own merit before finalizing the particulars of the presentation. What started out as a tongue-in-cheek title about border-running has transformed in to a fluffy animal smuggling title, but in either case the game is outrageously fun, amusing to play and supremely difficult to put down. Ultimately your aim is to get your truck and any animals th…

Gears Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Gears Review

From classics such as Marble Madness to modern titans like Super Monkey Ball, rolling a ball around a perilous maze isn't likely to leave us any time soon, especially when Labyrinth-style games fit so well with the iDevice's tilt-based control system. Gears by Crescent Moon Games combines visual excellence with some devious level designs, however it's the lack of emphasis on the tilt-controls that makes this a truly enjoyable gaming experience. While players can turn on tilt-controls,…

Fast Five the Movie: Official Game Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 12 months ago
Fast Five the Movie: Official Game Review

Recently The Onion did a small skit about the latest car-porn film Fast & Furious 5, taking the usual pot-shot at the action extravaganza by claiming the script was written by a small child obsessed with explosions. However no one truly expects to see an action film like this for high-art; it's all about the mindless over-the-top antics, scantily clad women and tight-shirt wearing men as they defy physics for 90 minutes. So it's no surprise that Fast Five by Gameloft is an unashame…

daWindci Review

daWindci Review

While sailing through the air in a hot-air balloon may be a relaxing experience for most, daWindci by Reality Twist adds a bit more action to the proceedings as you attempt to break time records while solving puzzles, collecting items and avoiding hazards that are ready to pop your high-flying ride. Players have no direct control over their balloon and instead they'll need to use indirect physics based controls to ambulate around the stage they're on. In particular, swiping the screen…

AlexPanda HD Review

Review Lakoo By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years ago
AlexPanda HD Review

Don't be fooled by its cute exterior - AlexPanda by Lakoo is the video game equivalent of a weapon designed for the soul-purpose of getting you to whip out your wallet. Should you take the plunge in to this cute, vibrantly presented arcade challenge, you'll need to take on the task of rescuing AlexPanda by dragging him through numerous hazards to the safe location on each level. Things start out easily enough as your panda is manipulated by touching and dragging him around the screen.…

Drag Tag Smash Review

Review SmashMouth Games Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Drag Tag Smash Review

Incorporating some sort of interaction between your gameplay and the music that sits in the background is an effective, if somewhat complicated way to engage players in what's happening in the game. Drag Tag Smash by SmashMouth Games combines interactive audio with a strange twist on the Breakout formula, but its ridiculous point scoring and driving beats aren't always enough to keep you coming back for more. The game's name isn't simply for show and players will need to drag their pa…

The Flood: Salvation Review

The Flood: Salvation Review

I'm not alone in my dread of drowning - I can happily swim and I have no fear of water in general, but the idea of being stuck underwater just chills me to the core. Thankfully 'The Flood: Salvation' by CouldGears is about saving someone from drowning, but the idea of leaving a person at the mercy of someone's logical puzzle solving skills feels like a strange twist on a Saw movie like trap. Putting my own issues aside, the gameplay is incredibly clever and where most physics-based pu…

Wharr: The Colossus Age Review

Review Forge 11 By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Wharr: The Colossus Age Review

Translating genres that have existed for a long time outside of the realm of touch-based gaming has had its problems, but ultimately it's a forgivable thing because established ideas had to be reconsidered. However, the endless-jumping genre has been with us for a very long time and with so many tried, true and tested gameplay features it seems odd to dramatically mess around with these conventions without adding anything new. Wharr: The Colossus Age by Gaetano Leonardi and Forge 11 i…


Arriving - Gravity Puzzle Game Review

Review chlova By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Arriving - Gravity Puzzle Game Review

'Arriving - Gravity Puzzle Game' by chlova is (you guessed it) a physics based puzzler and a hard one to enjoy as well. Despite the relatively intuitive controls and occasionally clever physics interactions, getting the game to execute even the simplest of actions can be a frustrating trial. To pass each level you'll need to collect all the glowing crystals by bumping and controlling a spherical egg. A baseline score slowly ticks down in value, providing a timer of sorts, while object…

Float Review

Review Elevate Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Float Review

Elevate Entertainment and Crawl Space Games describe their new game in an elegant way that's easy to sympathize with: If you've ever wasted a couple minutes batting a balloon around a room or up in to the air then you'll know what you're in for with Float. The basic concept in each of the available modes is to prevent your balloons from popping in the spikes below by tapping on them and causing them to fling up towards the top of the screen. Varied shapes react differently to your tou…

Sticky Review

Review Clickgamer.com By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Sticky Review

Take two crazy scientists; add one abandoned lab; a dash of megalomaniacal hubris; and a whole lot of good intentions and you end up with Sticky, an orange blob who's sole existence seems to be in generating the goo he's made of. As results go, it's not exactly the infinite well of energy I'm sure they were after, but when another experiment goes wrong it's up to the blob to keep the messy black-goop under control. In each level you'll need to guide Sticky around the screen, bouncing…

Hungry Shark - Part 3 Review

Review Future Games of London By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Hungry Shark - Part 3 Review

Future Games of London have placed Hungry Shark back up for a third spin on the App Store and for those already familiar with this vicious free-roaming title you now have a chance to take on an evil genius in his secret lair. Where the first release had its moments of fun, it was ultimately fairly short and limited in its scope. Part 3 goes a long way to resolve this problem by providing a much larger area to play with and challenging obstacles to overcome in order to get there. Cont…

Extreme_Formula Review

Review GOGN Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Extreme_Formula Review

Slick graphics, speedy racing and a futuristic theme are all well and good, but when it comes down to it a player needs to be able to feel like they're in control of their car when playing a racing title. It seems like a fairly obvious point, but Extreme Formula by GOGN Entertainment falls short of the mark and new players are bound to scratch their head as they try to work out what they're doing wrong. This is, in part, thanks to an interface that is cumbersome by design and the init…
