Mega Man® II Review

Review Beeline Interactive, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 4 months ago
Mega Man® II Review

This is a difficult review to write. Mega Man II is this reviewer's favourite videogame of all time. This 1988 release on the NES has been ported to the iphone with a whole new streamlined experience. Dr. Wily is at again, and it's up to Megaman to stop his nefarious schemes. This iphone port comes with a few options that affect controls and gameplay. The game can be played in portrait or landscape view. Portrait makes the touch joystick and buttons harder to use while landscape featu…

Star Wars The Force Unleashed Review

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (TFU) is THQ's port of the Triple-A title of the same name for major consoles from 2008. TFU was originally released at the same period as the console game and had a lot to live up to compared to its technologically advanced big brothers.

FINAL FANTASY II Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
FINAL FANTASY II Review

Along with Final Fantasy, Square also put up the sequel Final Fantasy II on the appstore. Like the first, this is a port of the Dawn of Souls remake for the GBA and PSP. The original game was released on the Famicom in 1988 and never made its way over to US shores. Instead of picking classes this time around, you play as three war orphans who are almost killed by the forces of the empire of Palamecia. Control like the first game is mostly touch based, with movement handled by a virtua…

FINAL FANTASY Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
FINAL FANTASY Review

Final Fantasy brings back a lot of memories. Originally released in 1987, it was one of the first console RPGs to gain popularity due to its battle mechanics, giant explorable world and intriguing story. The game was remade in 2004 for the Nintendo DS, ported to the PSP in 2007, and now that same port is on the iphone in 2010. The world has descended into chaos and a prophecy speaks of the warriors of light that will carry the world crystals and restore them to their former glory. The…

YAHTZEE™ Adventures Review

If you are or were a fan of Hasbro's scoring die game Yahtzee, then EA's iPhone port of Yahtzee Adventures offers a great new way to play an old favourite.

The controls are well thought out allowing you to shake the iphone to roll the die or simply click the cup to roll them. You then click the die you wish to hold after each roll until you choose your be…

Rise of the Triad: Dark War Review

Review Mobila Interactive, LLC By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
Rise of the Triad: Dark War Review

Originally developed by Apogee software in 1995, Rise of the Triad is a FPS boiled down to its elements. Get to the exit of each level while collecting as many points and inflicting as much damage upon your enemies as possible with a multitude of fun weapons and powerups. Does this iphone port capture the fun of the original however? Mobila have ported the game with a huge selection of control options, but none seem to be optimal. After testing all four main ones, this reviewer found…

Review PopCap By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
Plants vs. Zombies Review

Popcap is known for some very popular addictive titles and has had some great success in porting these to the iphone. Now, just short of a year of its PC release, the cutesy tower defense game Plants vs. Zombies is now available on this mobile device. There is a pack of zombies roaming the neighbourhood and as a local homeowner, you must use the power of your garden (and the help of Crazy Dave) to repel the undead horde. Control is fantastic.

Commodore 64 Review

Review Manomio LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Commodore 64 Review

For many people, the Commodore 64 (C64) is remembered with equal part nostalgia and frustration. It found its primary market in the UK, but even despite the video game crash of 1983 it still had a home in North America. If you're one of the few people lucky enough to have experienced the superior gameplay the system had at the time Commodore 64 by Manomio might just be for you. Much like Manomio's port of Flashback, this app is a licensed emulator of the C64. The menu system is easy t…
