Cavorite 2 Review

Review Cascadia Games LLC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
Cavorite 2 Review

I bet you thought that after the first Cavorite, Dr. Cavor escaped from the moon with his anti-gravity formula and made his way back home safe and sound. Not when there's a sequel to make! Running out of fuel, the good doctor makes an emergency lunar landing and goes to work in the moon's caverns to find enough gems to finally get off this tide-controlling rock for good. If you've played the first game, you should know what you're in for. Each level is a small puzzle that is based aro…

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
TwinGo! Review

Sometimes two people are inseparable. You've seen it in real life when your friends fall in love and suddenly your friend becomes merged with their partner creating some strange sort of amorphous twin. As a videogame mechanic however it can be quite creative and provide a nice base for plenty of perplexing puzzle gameplay. This is what Twingo has to offer. It's you goal to use the power of swiping to guide Fuyu and Natsu to their respective colored pads at the end of each level. The c…

Fairway Solitaire by Big Fish Review

Review Big Fish Games, Inc By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
Fairway Solitaire by Big Fish Review

When starting up a game called Fairway Solitaire, the name suggests a lot. “OK”, you think. “Somehow they've combined solitaire with golf. This should be interesting”. Then you're hit with a cheerfully animated introduction about the age old war between golf and gophers before being thrown into a puzzle game with not only intriguing mechanics, but plenty of personality. Not every course in this game (and there are many on offer) is eighteen holes, but the basic…

Review Green Pixel By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 8 months ago
BlockHopper Review

Puzzle platformers take many shapes but it's nice to see one that advocates creating your own pathways. The goal is out of reach, and for some reason our little protagonist Bit needs to find his way there. What is one to do? Luckily the omnipotent player has the ability to travel into block mode, pop down some platformers ripe for the jumping to allow Bit to travel on his merry way. OK, so the player isn't completely omnipotent. Each level you have a handful of blocks of different var…

Star Wars Pit Droids Review

Review LucasArts By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 8 months ago
Star Wars Pit Droids Review

To coincide with the re-release of The Phantom Menace in 3d, it's obvious that Lucasfilm would release some game tie-ins. You know, usually average action adventure or racing games that reflect sequences or the plot of the movie. Your usual fare. To that end, it was rather surprising and encouraging to play Star Wars Pit Droids. Not only is it a rather decent licensed game, it's also a pretty simple puzzle game whose difficulty rises nicely until you're pulling your hair out wondering…

Vanessa Saint-Pierre Delacroix Review

Review Replay Games, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Vanessa Saint-Pierre Delacroix Review

Vanessa Saint-Pierre Delacroix and her nightmare. Man that's a mouthful isn't it? Still, a title like that certainly breeds curiosity. While the game itself may not be what one expects from the title, the tone certainly is. In a very well told intro we learn that Vanessa is a brainy puzzle loving young girl who feels ostracized from her peers at the schoolyard. One day a strange puzzle box that she acquired from her father's antiquities shop breaks and sucks the entire town inside it.…

Let Me Out Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Let Me Out Review

Show me the way to go home. I'm tired and I want to go to bed. I was trapped inside a book about an hour ago and it's doing things to my head. Is it a good or bad thing when your game's premise can be surmised by changing a few words in a drinking song? An unlucky little book dragon has been sucked into the pages of the tome it was reading and now through the use of cannons and strategically placed beams of wood, the golden pages need to be collected to send it home. Each level has t…

W.E.L.D.E.R. Review

Review Ayopa Games LLC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
W.E.L.D.E.R. Review

Being a welder of words admittedly sounds rather poncy. However, there's no better explanation for the task set upon you in... 'W.E.L.D.E.R.'. Luckily swapping tiles to create words is a lot of fun, and thanks to some interesting little gameplay additions, a rather unique experience among word and puzzle games is to be had. The core of the game is a mix of Bejeweled and Scrabble. Tiles can be swapped horizontally, vertically, and diagonally to create words of four letters or more. The…

Saving Yello Review

Review dreamfab By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Saving Yello Review

It must be hard to think of intriguing scenarios to justify the stretching physics puzzle gameplay that has become so popular in the last year or so. Yello is sitting in his bowl (he's a fish by the way) when a sinister hand removes him from his home. The rest of the the game is returning to your fishbowl via some rather incredible jumps, all the while grabbing points for raining down destruction on all the toys and structures that stand in your way. To make Yello jump, simply pull ba…

Bag It! Review

Review Hidden Variable Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Bag It! Review

I consider my time spent in retail as a sort of front-loaded penance for the rest of my life - anyone who has had to grind away time dealing with humanity on a piecemeal basis will appreciate how it either makes or breaks you, turning you in to a social wizard or a raving lunatic ready to set people on fire. These days self-checkout machines are passing the frustration back to the customer as they attempt to quickly scan and safely pack away their groceries before being yelled at from…

Bring Me Down Review

Review Hany Malek By Dave Flodine, 3 years ago
Bring Me Down Review

You know those physics puzzle games where you have to remove blocks to safely drop a character on the ground below without having him roll off the edge? Bring me Down is one of those games... in 3d! Does the extra dimension help or hinder? Let us find out. Each level starts with this monster trapped in a spherical cage. By tapping on the blocks he's resting on, they disappear, and then physics happens. The goal is to get the monster to the ground below (along with the two bananas as w…

Robo5 Review

Robo5 Review

Robo wakes up in an unknown lab not knowing who he is or why he's there. He sets his plans on escape. How this is accomplished is climbing towers of blocks to reach an exit, all the while refreshing your battery. Moving crates and hanging on the edge of them for dear life is exhausting work after all. Yup, what we have here is a good old fashioned box puzzle game that is a little reminiscent of the console game Catherine. Tapping on a block will move Robo to it. Dragging your finger w…

Mr.Fang Review

Mr.Fang Review

Mr. Fang is a puzzle game that will keep your fingers tapping the screen as you combo up four blocks of the same color. Classic mode has you completing objectives to fill up your bar before time runs out, puzzle mode has you clearing the screen, and time attack mode has you vying for rankings on a world leaderboard. But is it fun? The concept behind Mr. Fang is to create a giant square out of four blocks of the same color. Once this square is created, you can tap on it to get a huge p…

Roll in the Hole Review

Roll in the Hole Review

When you start playing a game titled Roll in the Hole, you expect two things. Rolling, and a hole to roll into. You'll be happy to know that this game delivers on both those fronts. You play Popo the fat Panda. A mean Gorilla has stolen all your ice cream and you must chase him down the only way you can, by rolling into oblivion. You would think that a game based around rolling would revolve around tilt controls, but funnily enough, Roll in the Hole uses the touch screen. The screen i…

Squishys Revenge Review

Squishys Revenge Review

It seems unfeasible that a sliding tile puzzle game featuring a cute little blob named Squishy has a anti-corporate bent to it, but the evidence seems to be right there on the screen. Oh sure the story tells you that the evil Dr. Spudget has stolen all the Squishberries and it's up to Squishy to take revenge... but you do this by setting skyscrapers aflame, many of which seem to be alive. You monster! Each level gives you so many turns before Squishy moves. You need to flick tiles wit…
