Pirate Gunner HD Review

Review Black Pearl Games Limited By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 8 months ago
Pirate Gunner HD Review

Avast me hearties! It's another pirate themed game on the iPhone! Fear not you lovers of swashbuckling and buried treasure for this isn't just a simple attempt to cash in on the pirate craze (though I imagine that's what the developers had in mind), this is actually a really well made puzzle action game. Like the title suggests, you are a pirate gunner, manning the cannons on Captain Red Beard's ship. As you come across other pirate vessels, the navy, and even giant octopuses, it's up…

Qvoid Review

Review Gavina Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Qvoid Review

Some of best puzzle games base themselves around a simple concept that, when restricted in subtle ways, presents a whole new challenge to test your reasoning and logic. Qvoid by Gavina Games is one of these types of puzzles and while the idea of rolling a cube around and matching colors may seem easy enough, something as small as a 3x3 grid can turn in to a serious mind-bender. On each of the 96 currently available stages your aim is to smoosh all the colored squares on the level toge…

Async Corp. Review

Review Powerhead Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Async Corp. Review

Puzzle games can fall into the trap of slapping a new coat of paint on an old concept and trying to pass it off as something new. What they should be doing is taking that concept, creating a unique world around it and then giving the player choice as to what type of puzzle game with these mechanics they wish to play. This is what Async Corp achieves. You are a new employee at Async Corp and your job is to make packets. How are packets made you ask? By swapping colored tiles from two s…

Continuity 2: The Continuation Review

Review Ragtime Games LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Continuity 2: The Continuation Review

I'll freely admit that Continuity 2: The Continuation by Ragtime Games hit me from a blind-side. While I'd like to think I can keep up with all the latest news, I missed out on the original game despite it winning awards at the Independent Games Festival and IndieCade. What I'm trying to say is, 'mea culpa' - at least I get to play the sequel to this dastardly puzzle title. On the surface of it the game looks much like a puzzle platformer - collect items, get the key, reach the exit.…

World of Goo Review

Review 2D BOY By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years ago
World of Goo Review

NOTE: While our site is still indicating the initial discount price of $0.99, the App has returned to its full price of $2.99 as of 15th April 2011. There are few games as easy to recommend for your desktop PC as World of Goo by 2D BOY; while there are similar titles that could be considered more challenging, the charming story and presentation of this game goes a long way to absorb and lock players in. Its eventual release on the iPad was a boon for the iOS device and a great way to…

Captain Puzzle Review

Review Spearhead Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Captain Puzzle Review

The timing of the release of Captain Puzzle by Spearhead Entertainment couldn't be more unfortunate, but sometimes fate can be a cruel mistress and you have to play with the hand you're dealt. Thankfully, while Captain Puzzle features gameplay not unlike Bust-A-Move, the puzzle-based focus makes for a more demanding title. As Captain Puzzle, you need to match three or more colored orbs together by throwing (and occasionally bouncing) randomly assigned orbs around the screen. Initially…

Reiner Knizia's Yoku-Gami Review

Review Meritum Soft d.o.o. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Reiner Knizia's Yoku-Gami Review

With plenty of board games already under his belt, Reiner Knizia has turned his hand at producing a simpler puzzle game for the App Store. Yoku-Gami is the result of this collaboration with developer Meritum Soft and you'll need to put your math-hats on to make headway in this puzzler. Whether you choose the Endless, Arcade or Level mode, the basic gameplay remains the same. Players are presented with a 6x6 grid filled with numbers and to clear them off the board you'll need to select…

Clock Blocks Review

Review Reddyset LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Clock Blocks Review

In a lot of puzzle games you're put up against a timer, attempting to either stay ahead of the curve or reach a solution before the time runs out. In Clock Blocks by 80d Games you have nothing but timers to contend with and once the game starts you're always just a few seconds away from needing to restart the challenge. Each 'puzzle' consists of a series of clock faces of multiple sizes, speeds and directions that need to be used as cannons to propel a ball around the screen. Once the…

Super Stickman Golf Review

Review Noodlecake Studios Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
Super Stickman Golf Review

UPDATE: A recent update has added more courses and achievements, but more importantly players can now duke it out in a 2-4 player multiplayer mode on local or online networks (matchmaking performed through Game Center). What was already an amazingly addictive title has squeezed out a little extra fun and is worth grabbing more than ever before. First there was Stick Golf and the verdict was good. Now, there's Super Stick Golf and Noodlecake Games don't just deserve a hearty golf-clap,…

Slideshot 2 Review

Review mschomerus By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Slideshot 2 Review

Slideshot 2 by mschomerus is a puzzle title that is simple in theory, but incredibly challenging in practice. Then again, maybe that's what's so appealing about this dastardly puzzler. Each level presents players with a handful of tubes that can be slid around the screen either only up and down or left and right. The aim is to create a sequence of tubes that will allow a ball to travel in and out of the screen while passing through every one. This results in one of two problems for th…

Collision Courses Review

Collision Courses Review

Collision Courses by TriggerFinger Entertainment is the kind of puzzle game you'd play absentmindedly in your spare time. At first I must say I wasn't terribly excited by the simple style of this title, but for those sick of titles that expect you to have a genius level of logic and reaction times, this is the title for you. In each of the game's 40 currently available levels it's your task to make sure that every rocket on screen ends up colliding with each other. At first this isn't…

Fragmental 3D - Build Lines with Falling Blocks! Review

Review Aesthetic Interactive By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Fragmental 3D - Build Lines with Falling Blocks! Review

Recently we reviewed a couple 3D Tetris titles with Tetra3D leading the charge for a fun revival of this classic twist on an old-school arcade puzzle game. Given these releases it would be unfair to forget to review Fragmental 3D by Aesthetic Interactive, especially when this title made its debut earlier, making the comparison between these games quite interesting to say the least. Fragmental 3D differs in its approach by using default controls that are quite unique, requiring players…

Review Streaming Colour Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
LandFormer Review

Elegant, thought provoking playground-style puzzle games really get my brain to light up like a Christmas Tree and not since Path Pix have I felt so excited about a game like LandFormer by Streaming Colour Studios. In this puzzler, players will need to use a limited set of tools to raise and lower the landscape in a 5x5 grid to return the world back to a pristine flat plain. There are several restrictions that help to limit the complexity with only six tools in total, each with their…

RollOut Review

Review Bulkypix By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
RollOut Review

For most puzzle platformers you'll be put in control of a character that's subject to the whims of a cruel environment that can push, block and direct you towards various traps. In Rollout by Bulkypix you get to reverse the roles, taking control of the environment to bounce, speed up and slow down an adorable ball of fluff called Wabba as he makes his way to each exit. Once Wabba warps in to each level he'll curl up and start rolling until you've completed the level, leaving you to sh…
