MapleStory Cygnus Knights Edition Review

Review NEXON MOBILE By Dave Flodine, 3 years ago
MapleStory Cygnus Knights Edition Review

For those of you unfamiliar with Maple Story, it's a free to play Korean MMO that's been around for the latter half of the 2000s.  Cygnus Knights is the 2nd release of a single player version of the franchise for mobile devices, allowing play with two characters through a world full of endlessly respawing monsters. You can play either as Mikhail the Soul Knight or Oz the Flame Wizard, essentially giving you a play choice between melee combat or magic (although it takes a bit of p…

FINAL FANTASY III Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
FINAL FANTASY III Review

Many outside of Japan know Final Fantasy III (FF3) in its original incarnation on the SNES, though as history would have it this was in fact the 6th installment. Numbering conventions aside, FF3 saw its official debut outside of Japan in 2006 after being released in full 3D for the Nintendo DS and a port of the original NES game on the Nintendo Wii in 2009. Square Enix, ever ready to remain hip with the times has brought the 3D incarnation to the App Store, along with the usual bevvy o…

Bomberman Dojo Review

Review Hudson Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Bomberman Dojo Review

Although many Bomberman games by Hudson have a strong single-player focus, the multiplayer aspect has always felt like its true strength. Strangely, Bomberman Dojo is a purely single-player experience, though instead of simply playing against AI opponents or basic monsters you'll be pitting your skills against 50 puzzling stages in order to prove you're the best Bomberman around. For those not yet initiated, Bomberman pits you against enemies placed in a maze-like screen that's litter…

Earth Defense Force Review

Review DotEmu By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Earth Defense Force Review

Earth Defense Force is yet another collaboration between DotEmu and JALECO in their attempt to resurrect classic arcade titles for a modern generation. In this classic side-scrolling shoot'em-up you'll travel through six different stages, slowly powering up your ship before the final confrontation and unlocking additional features. This really is classic SHMUP gaming, though it's hard to say 'at its best' as there are a few quirks that make it hard to truly enjoy. Most importantly pla…

Gobliiins Review

Review Bulkypix By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Gobliiins Review

Gobliiins is arguably best referred to as the kind of title that causes some fan-boys to glaze over with rose-tinted memories of glee, but playing it again without the aid of nostalgic hindsight can be cruel on these memories. While the fourth installment of this series was released last year, it's odd that Bulkypix would choose to port it over to the App Store given its somewhat 'eclectic' appeal. In this adventure you'll take control over three goblins, each with their own unique sk…

ChuChu Rocket! Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
ChuChu Rocket! Review

If you never had a chance to play ChuChu Rocket! the first time around on the Dreamcast, then you're in for a treat as SEGA have ported this title over for the App Store. This classic puzzle title of 'cat and mouse' antics takes a somewhat surreal twist as you attempt to help the mice (Chu-Chus) to escape the clutches of the hungry cats (Kapu-Kapu). Both the mice and the cats will run endlessly around in loops, turning to their right every time they hit a surface and you'll need to di…

BUBBLE BOBBLE DOUBLE Review

Review TAITO Corporation By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
BUBBLE BOBBLE DOUBLE Review

When TAITO decided to update their franchise for the App Store I had mixed feelings; I had the usual fan-boy hope that it's not 'ruined' and the inner-child optimism that they 'get it right'. And now that I've been playing Bubble Bobble Double, I have to say it's only a notch or two off being perfect. It loses these points right out of the gate for the lackluster virtual stick controls for the 'classic' mode - a direct port of the arcade release - however the addition of an AI control…

Swords and Sandals Review

Review 3RDsense By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Swords and Sandals Review

Sword and Sandals by 3RDsense continues the tradition of bringing free flash titles over to the App Store, but instead of merely cashing in with a direct port this version has been given some serious upgrades and tweaks over the free one. In this title you'll battle against vast amounts of gladiators, one at a time, until you rest easy as the ultimate champion. For those familiar with the series, the App Store version is an adaption of the second title that has been tweaked with a few…

rRootage Online HD Review

Review fraglab.at By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
rRootage Online HD Review

Permit me a moment to geek out a little as it's no surprise that I enjoy the occasional shoot'em-up (shmup) and when someone mentions Kenta Cho I get a little thrill shiver down my spine. rRootage Online is a port by fraglab.at of this incredible title for iDevices, but viewers beware, this is not for the feint of heart. The basic controls are extremely simple, with your ship being controlled by touching and dragging your finger on screen and tapping with another finger to activate yo…

Ecco the Dolphin Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years ago
Ecco the Dolphin Review

Once again, SEGA has dragged one of their premium titles from the 90's kicking and screaming on to the App Store and the lucky pick this time is Ecco the Dolphin. This loveable aquatic mammal has been left behind to discover why his pod was sucked up in to the sky and he'll travel around the globe and time to get to the bottom of things. SEGA's Genesis emulator for the App Store is put in to overdrive to get Ecco blasting his way through the seas and the controls are surprisingly good…

Karate Champ Review

Review CROOKS & CROOKS, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Karate Champ Review

It's hard not to recognize Karate Champ in one way or another, especially as it heralded the beginning of a new genre of games by being one of the first side-on fighters for the arcade. Revolutionary Concepts has brought a full adaption of the classic arcade title to the iPhone for players to once again re-live the glory days of a fighter that required true skill to master. In keeping with the original arcade title, players are given two virtual arcade sticks at the bottom of a portra…

StarCannon Review

Review Jagex Games Studio By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
StarCannon Review

Jagex Game Studio, better known for their great selection of free games online have recently released a port of their popular shoot'em-up title 'StarCannon' for the iPhone. Strangely, something seems to have been lost in translation and this title bears very little resemblance to the game's progenitor. Like most recent shoot'em-ups, StarCannon uses a touch and drag system to control the player's ship. Firing is automatic while touching the screen and the ship will automatically steer…

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Review

With Sonic the Hedgehog being on every electronic device that's in some way wired to the internet (and possibly on some varieties of toasters), it was only a matter of time before the sequel made its debut. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was a landmark title for the Genesis (or Mega Drive for those of you outside the US) that is still one of the consoles highest selling games. Much like the port of Sonic the Hedgehog for the iPhone the controls are simplified with a virtual d-pad for movement a…

The Saboteur™ Review

Review Hands-On Mobile By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
The Saboteur™ Review

The Saboteur, released by EA for major consoles was received with mild interest. Set in 1940's occupied France, you play Sean Devlin on his quest for revenge against the Nazis. Hands-On Mobile has just released an iPhone version of the game, but just like its bigger brother on the 360 and PS3 it's a great game that just manages to miss the mark in every way. Sean is controlled from an angled top-down 2D perspective as he runs around causing general amounts of mayhem and destruction. A…

Dawn of Discovery - Harbor Review

Review Ubisoft By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
Dawn of Discovery - Harbor Review

Dawn of Discovery is the latest installment in the Anno series, a game that focuses on resource management with a touch of real time strategy. This iphone port takes one element of the PC release and creates a very addictive time manangement game through thirty six missions. As the harbour master, it is your duty to manage traders to make your daily quota and expand your business. Everything is controlled by touching and dragging. Traders queue up to enter your harbour, and you choose…
