Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake Review

Review Cartoon Network By Alex Beech, 4 months, 3 weeks ago
Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake Review

It was great being a kid. We could talk to our dog in the street without people thinking were crazy, and on our birthday we could eat cake for breakfast without feeling guilty. Its this sense of wonder and delight that Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake instantly awakens - except, as the name suggests, there will be no cake because monsters have stolen it. Taking control of a young boy named Niko, you follow your trusty dachshund Bazooka in search of your missing cake. The innocent story s…

Frantic twitch puzzler Hyper Square is on the App Store now

Hyper Square, a frantic twitch based puzzle game from Team Signal, is out now on the App Store. The gameplay revolves around swiping squares into portals to make them disappear. While the basics may seem easy, however, Team Signal adds increasingly more complex layers of mechanics, requiring you to resize and rotate tiles against the clock before flinging them into the requisite portal. Hyper Square’s vibrant aesthetic keeps the gameplay visually interesting and exciting, while also managing to increase its sense of urgency with its pulsing lines and colours. Despite this it remains quite minimal, ensuring that even at its most fraught you are able to follow what is going on.…


Hitman GO Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Alex Beech, 7 months, 1 week ago
Hitman GO Review

Hitman GO is not the game fans of the series might expect. Rather than take the form of a standard third-person action game, Hitman GO plays out like a strategic board game. You begin by selecting a contract. Each of these mission play out on their own uniquely styled board. The settings range from a country club setting to more industrial locations, each with their own tile sets and enemy types. The goal is to guide Agent 47’s through the grid-based play area to his…

See Gentle Ben trash a museum in new trailer for Halfbrick puzzler Bears vs. Art

Halfbrick's has released a gameplay trailer for its new puzzle game Bears. vs Art. which has been soft-launched in Canada and Australia The new trailer shows protagonist Rory making his way around an art museum, rolling through expensive exhibits and generally trashing the place. The aim is to turn every painting and statue from a priceless work art to a pile of worthless junk while avoiding detection by museum security, snooty guests and thieves. As Rory's natural habitat was destroyed by the new gallery, his vendetta against art is justified. This helps to make his destructive quest feel more like a fight for freedom than vandalism. Those of you who live in Canada and Aus…

Puzzle platformer Eets Munchies will have you nibbling at your iPad

Waking up in the morning always leaves us a little confused and peckish. This is exactly the feeling Klei Entertainment new iPad puzzle game Eets Munchies manages to provoke. The simple goal of Eets Munchies is to guide a ravenous creature towards a delicious cake. Rather than taking direct control of the beastie, however, each puzzle has you leading the little guy around the screen by laying items along his path, and clearing away any obstacles. There are dozens of items on offer to help you reach the goal. These include chillies to make the hungry chap angry, boards to form bridges, and even mushrooms that make you walk on the ceiling – all of which fit perfectly with t…


Lost Yeti Review

Review Gionathan Pesaresi By Alex Beech, 9 months, 2 weeks ago
Lost Yeti Review

Guiding a forlorn yeti home seems like it should be a relaxing and uplifting experience. Instead, what Gionathan Pesaresi's Lost Yeti treats you to is some of the most demanding and frustrating puzzles we have played. Our furry hero is out in the cold and determined to get home. Even when he has nowhere to go, he just keeps on walking, only turning when he reaches a dead end. To help him on his way you need to slide a variety of blocks along horizontal and vertical lines, thereby chan…

Superb puzzle sequel The Room Two is finally coming to iPhone this Thursday

Superb puzzle sequel The Room Two is finally coming to iPhone this Thursday

Fireproof Games's puzzle hit The Room Two arrived on the iPad a little over a month ago. However, starting this Thursday, iPhone owners will also be able to unlock the game's mechanical mysteries, when the iPhone version of The Room Two appears on the App Store. Like its predecessor, The Room Two bowled us over when it came to the iPad last December, thanks to its atmospheric visuals, creepy audio, and diverse puzzles. However, while the eerie sequel retains the weathered, spooky environments that were a trademark of the original game, the game's puzzle-box based conundrums operate on a notably grander scale. How grand, you ask? Check out the glowing video review below for the a…


Shardlands Review

Review Breach Entertainment Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Shardlands Review

A lot of games start you out with either a splash page of introductory context or a movie to set up the scene. Shardlands throws you right into the thick of it straight away. Your character Dawn wakes up in a strange alien world. Where is she? How did she get there? These are pertinent questions, but surprisingly not all that pressing. This game is of a slower pace, where exploration and evasion are the order of the day. The big questions can wait. And to explore this foreign landscap…

Trauma Ted Review

Review Lonely Pin PocketGames By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Trauma Ted Review

We've all played oh so many games like Trauma Ted. The quick, easy to play bursts of puzzle-y goodness, the simple yet endearing art and music, the level menu strewn with numbered tiles for all the options available. It seems that aside from some revolutionary gameplay ideas, the only thing that can make a game like this interesting after so many others is the premise. Well how about helping an injured cat with a migraine feed his painkiller addiction level by level, utilizing wrap aro…

Girls Like Robots Review

Review [adult swim] By Dave Flodine, 2 years ago
Girls Like Robots Review

Girls like Robots, published by Adult Swim is the most charming and entertaining seating arrangement simulator on the App Store. Now before you all run away out of boredom, let's clarify that. Yes the core mechanic of the game is to find the optimal seating arrangement between a collection of colorful characters that either love or loathe each other, but it's through the characters themselves, and how the game keeps unrolling new situations that makes this a puzzle game that's certainl…

Jumpster™ Review

Review G5 Entertainment By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Jumpster™ Review

If there's one thing Jumpster has going for it, it's that for most of the levels, eye-absorbing would be a very apt description. The planet Okadia is definitely full of eye candy, but sadly this is not going to help Jumpster acquire all the fuel cells needed to power his ship off this lush and lavish planet. The core of the experience here is a physics puzzler that is designed around the freemium model. A catapulting drag of the finger will cause Jumpster to jump along the arc provide…

Save The Puppies PREMIUM Review

Review HandyGames By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Save The Puppies PREMIUM Review

Sometimes you just have to solve your own problems. If a dogcatcher is going to capture all the puppies in your area, instead of trying to deal with the issue on human terms, you should just  rescue the puppies yourself (as they have been dropped all over town in their cages). How might a lowly sausage dog complete such an undertaking? By eating sausages to grow to a sufficient enough length to solve puzzles of course! Save the Puppies uses an on-screen d-pad on the bottom left o…
