Araxium Review

Review Kijomagi Day By Andrew Nesvadba, 8 years, 2 months 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, 8 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 Lazy 8 Studios By Luke Bartley, 8 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…

Review Thruster By Luke Bartley, 8 years, 2 months ago
Doodle Bomb Review

Doodle Bomb is a physics puzzle game where you must progress through 50 levels, throwing bombs at switches to open the door to the next level. 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 Alexander Williams By Damian Chiappara, 8 years, 2 months ago
Arctopia: A Puzzle Game (Chapters 1-14) Review

Arctopia is a chilled out puzzle game that puts players in control of a small penguin as he must extinguish a number of small fires in each level. To do so, you’ll need to move around large ice cubes, create new cubes and manipulate other obstacles. Players control the penguin’s movement by using the onscreen arrows and can create ice cubes by tapping on the snowflake icon. Ice can only be created on a downward diagonal angle and you cannot directly put out flames adding a…

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.

TileStorm Review

Review Massive Hadron Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 8 years, 3 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, 8 years, 3 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, 8 years, 3 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…

Zwirn Review

Review luridmorn By Luke Bartley, 8 years, 3 months ago
Zwirn Review

Zwirn is an interesting game to say the least. Though first impressions are somewhat similar to Zen Bound, they are unfortunately only skin deep. Zwirn (German for twine) is a quirky puzzle game where players manipulate a piece of string from its starting point, and thread it around the level so it touches all black dots simultaneously by the time you reach the end. The first four levels are supposed to act as a tutorial, unfortunately they are not of much help. Rather than give you w…

Sticking with simplicity in mind, the game uses standard swiping gestures to move pieces around the board with pinching gestures to zoom both in and out. The m…
