Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 3D Review

Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 3D Review

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.

WORMS Review

Review Team17 Software Ltd By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 9 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

Review NAMCO BANDAI Games By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 9 months ago
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

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.

Need For Speed™ Undercover Review

Need For Speed has earned a reputation as one of those franchises that will either having players squealing in delight at the high octane gameplay or cringing at the thought of another repetitive sequel.

Sonic the Hedgehog Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 9 months ago
Sonic the Hedgehog Review

Just about every mobile device has had an incarnation of this popular classic console game and there's no reason that SEGA shouldn't have brought it to the iPhone too. Iconic in its design and gameplay, the iPhone version of Sonic the Hedgehog 1 plays just as flawlessly as the Mega Drive version it's taken from. A digital d-pad is used to run, spin and jump Sonic around each of the levels and the response has to be played to be believed. A major flaw for almost every mobile port has b…
