Tumiki Fighters Review

Tumiki Fighters Review

Kenta Cho is a sort of buzzword name in the shoot'em up world of developers and has been well received for his inspirational and quirky design ideas. Tumiki Fighters on the iPhone is a port of his Katamari inspired shooter and while successful on other platforms it loses its charm here. At the heart of any good shooter is the agility of your fighter and this version of Tumiki Fighers is amazingly hard to control. The fighter is controlled by accelerometer tilting, which can be calibra…

BOGGLE Review

BOGGLE Review

Boggle is a port of the well known, word based board game for the iPhone. The gameplay is still the same; players are given a 4x4 square full of jumbled letters and they have to make as many words using those letters. Players are given a time limit and score based on the length of the word. You construct words by tapping on the letters in sequence and submit them by tapping the final letter again. The words must be 3 or more letters and only adjacent letters can be selected for each w…

Alive 4-ever Review

Alive 4-ever Review

You'd be forgiven if you read the title Alive 4-Ever (A4E), saw the App icon and thought, "Did someone port Left 4 Dead (L4D) to the iPhone?". It's hard to fault Meridian for jumping on to a hot game design concept like L4D and while there are many comparisons to be made, A4E is just about as perfect as it gets for action fans on the iPhone. The dual analogue controls are extremely responsive, which will save your behind as zombies quickly crowd around you. Other interactive elements…

LUXOR Review

Review MumboJumbo By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 1 month ago
LUXOR Review

They say that imitation is flattery, but when it comes to arcade marble-poppers LUXOR by MumboJumbo may not be an original concept, but this port to the iPhone is immediately fun and challenging; so what more could you ask for? There are three major schemes for controlling the marble-shooter, but sadly the two optional methods seem to exist more as a side-note, with neither one being practical for use. Your shooter can be smoothly dragged around the bottom of the screen, with vertical…

Civilization Revolution Review

Review 2K By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 1 month ago
Civilization Revolution Review

Sid Meirs' Civilization series is one of the most addictive strategic video games in history. A bold statement, but its tech trees, exploration, and 'one more turn' style of gameplay has kept this reviewer glued to his screen since the early 90s. In this port of the most recent game in the series, we see how this style of gameplay transfers to the iPhone. You start the game by choosing a world leader and beginning your civilization around 3000 BC. As you build your armies, cities, and…

Duke Nukem 3D Review

Review MachineWorks Northwest By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 1 month ago
Duke Nukem 3D Review

Duke Nukem 3D, arguably one of the finest first person shooters ever made. Now a port of the game comes to the iPhone with a unique control scheme to compensate for the lack of a mouse and keyboard. The question though is does it deliver the experience we all remember and love. The game offers two control schemes and both have their problems. The analog setup features two control sticks down the bottom of the screen (one to move, one to shoot), while the digital setup breaks the stick…

PGA Golo Golf Dice Review

Review Pick Up And Play By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 1 month ago
PGA Golo Golf Dice Review

PGA Golo Golf Dice is the iPhone's portal to PGA.com's online version of the table-top dice game of the same name. For a game that relies on something as simple as rolling dice it's a remarkably complex game of luck and strategy. There's little to the controls with the dice being shaken each round or rolled out at the touch of a button. The interface serves more as a method of tracking your progress, so there's little room for complexity here. Despite only being a game played with di…

Resident Evil 4: PLATINUM Review

Review CAPCOM By Luke Bartley, 5 years, 1 month ago
Resident Evil 4: PLATINUM Review

The Resident Evil series has respected history in video games, and now the fourth iteration has made its way to the iPhone. This port has tried to stay faithful to the looks and gameplay of its console counterpart, and mostly it is successful. Playing the part of Leon Kennedy, you have been asked to investigate the kidnapping of the President's daughter, however there is a lot more at play than it would seem. The controls have been condensed to be fit on the iPhone's screen. Movement…

Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 3D Review

Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 3D Review

Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 3D is a new port of the console kart racing game released for the iPhone.  The gameplay is the same, players choose a character, race through various tracks against computer opponents, launching attacks and taking shortcuts in order to secure the win. The racing itself is made a lot easier due to the fact that the karts automatically accelerate without any input from players, leaving you free to concentrate on the race and your opponents. Players must s…

WORMS Review

Review Team17 Software Ltd By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 2 months ago
WORMS Review

Worms has been around since the mid nineties. In that time it's spawned numerous sequels and been ported to every platform imaginable. Now it's on the iPhone. The goal is the same as its always been. Use your team of amusing little worms and their ridiculous arsenal of weaponry to take out the other amusing teams of worms. So how does the formula fare here? The controls are numerous, and there are almost too many to remember. Walking, jumping and aiming seems simple enough, but any we…

PAC-MAN Review

PAC-MAN Review

Pac-Man is a game that needs no introduction. One of, if not the most recognised arcade titles of all time has made its way onto the iPhone. This port is the same as the classic arcade versions and your goal is still to eat the dots, collect fruit and avoid the ghosts to max out your highscore. You can control Pac-Man in three ways. By swiping your finger in the direction you want him to move, using a d-pad at the bottom of the screen or by leaning and tilting the iPhone to direct him…

Pipe Mania Review

Review Virtual Programming Ltd By Myles McKinnon, 5 years, 2 months ago
Pipe Mania Review

Pipe Mania is yet another rendition of the popular game Pipe Dreams. The player has different sections of pipe to choose from and must use them to contain the water as it travels from point A to point B. The longer the pipe the more points you will earn. The controls system for this game work well. You tap to place a section of pipe and tap to destroy it if you happen to make a mistake, but doing so will deduct from your overall score. The creators of this game have ensured that the c…
