Compression Review

Compression Review

Have you ever played a game of Dr. Mario and felt like the walls are closing in? That must have been the consensus over at Little White Bear studios when they made Compression. Blocks of certain colours drop, and you need to line up three in a row to destroy all the hollow blocks in the level. Every three block drops however one of the walls will close in, giving you less room to work with. Control is very basic. Drag the blocks to move them across the screen, and tap to flip them. As…

Colorbind Review

Review Nonverbal By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 1 month ago
Colorbind Review

Puzzle games are one of the most successful genres on the app store. Many of them are unique and well made, and that's good, cause it takes an interesting idea to stand out from the crowd. Colorbind is an interesting idea where you have to fold strips of paper to cover all the dots of the same colour on the screen. Control is taken care by the touch and drag of your finger. You guide the paper along the screen, changing direction to fold it ninety degrees. To undo the paper trail, sim…

Tiki Towers Review

Review GameHouse By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 1 month ago
Tiki Towers Review

Physics based games are popular to some and frustrating to others. The bridge builder has been a sub genre that exemplifies this. In Tiki Towers you have a limited amount of bamboo to build a structure that will withstand the amount of force swinging monkeys will put on it as they make their way to the exit, grabbing bananas along the way. Control is pretty decent. You click or drag from a build point to create bamboo structures. Once satisfied, click the action button and see how it…

Araxium Review

Review Kijomagi Day By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Araxium Review

Araxium is Kijomagi Day's first major game for the App Store and with its colorful style and unique game concept it could have been a major hit. Sadly what could have been a great idea is hampered by incomplete gameplay. The idea is simple, each level requires a specific color pattern to be made with gems that appear in the center of the game's grid. Touching a location will sling the gem into place. All patterns seem to be horizontal and a specific amount of matches is required to co…

Trundle Review

Review mobile bros., LLC By Kym Holmes, 4 years, 2 months ago
Trundle Review

Trundle is a puzzle based game whereby you roll and jump a blue glowing ball through obstacles to continue to the next screen. Similar in essence to games like Rolando, Trundle has a unique visual quality and addictiveness that makes it stand out. The controls are simple enough in that you tilt the screen to roll the ball and tap the screen to jump. Working out the best timing for jumps to use the appropriate inertia can take time, but it all adds to the challenge of the game. There i…

Cogs Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Luke Bartley, 4 years, 2 months ago
Cogs Review

Cogs is tile sliding puzzle game in which players must link tiles containing cogs or steam pipes in order to make a connection to the end. This simple premise can be quite an entertaining way to waste a lot of time. Chilingo have added complexity to this familiar style of puzzle by using 3D shapes in certain levels, making the player line up multiple facets of the cube to solve it. Gameplay is very simple to get the hang of. Players simply tap the tile they want to move into the empty…

This is made more difficult as the game progresses, requiring the player to think ahead before tossing a bomb. You throw bombs by tapping on the screen where you want the bomb to go. Tapping further from your character throws the bombs harder while you tap closer to lob them more gently. Tilting the iPhone can add some roll to your bomb after i…

Review NAMCO BANDAI Games By Kym Holmes, 4 years, 2 months ago
Isaac Newton's Gravity Review

Isaac Newton’s Gravity is the latest physics based puzzle game offering from Namco. The goal of the game is to set up objects within a level so that when you push play, gravity takes its course causing one of the objects to push a red button completing the level. A great deal of effort has gone into the controls, giving the player the ability to rotate the objects and place them in a very intricate fashion. This however, causes some frustration as each piece must be intricately…

TileStorm Review

Review Massive Hadron By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
TileStorm Review

Lets be honest, sometimes it's not hard to understand why people shy away from games that call themselves "puzzles", because ultimately few people enjoy the idea of being frustrated working out solutions. TileStorm by Massive Hadron walks a thin line between fun and frustration with its tile-sliding puzzles that you'll either love or loathe. Manipulating puzzles couldn't be easier and play much like a regular tile-sliding puzzle. The trick here is to maneuver the pieces to form a path…

geoSpark - WARNING: Highly Addictive! Review

From the culminated efforts of two fantastic developers, GeoSpark is a highly addictive pick-up-and-play game where players must shoot their way to survival by destroying all the geometrical “sparks” whilst trying to achieve the highest score possible. The game can be approached in two ways. You can either take the easier and subsequently longer approach and tap and destroy each of the sparks for 10 points, or if you're feeling more adventurous you can tap on a spark and d…

Cross Fingers Review

Review Mobigame By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Cross Fingers Review

Cross Fingers by Mobigames is about as polished as a puzzle game can get on the iPhone with a slick presentation and stunningly simple gameplay that will eat up all of your spare time. The challenge of Cross Fingers is a basic one with players invited to shift blocks of varying size and shape to fill the voids on the screen. Much like tangram puzzles, these voids can be comprised of extremely odd shapes and will require some logic to piece together the final composition. However, this…

mondrian Review

Review Fuzzi Tail Software LLC By Luke Bartley, 4 years, 2 months ago
mondrian Review

Anybody familiar with the Dutch artist Piet Mondrian and his Neo-Plasticism artform may have an inkling to what this game is about. What is doubtful is that they expected to have the ghost of the man himself accompany the player on a quest to retrieve his paintings from all over the world. Mondrian is a block puzzler where the player must move coloured blocks around the level in order to recreate some of the paintings by Mondrian. Even though you are doing the dead man a favour, he is…
