Tiptop Review

Review On5 By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Tiptop Review

In what could be the first of a series of games from developer On5, 'Tiptop: the last march.' is a Lemmings-inspired game that's married with pop-culture to create a challenging and (at times) tongue-in-cheek experience that's hard to put down. In order to assist your heroes lines can be drawn on to the level, providing a path for them to walk on or as barriers against enemies. Much like other line-drawing games, you're given a limited amount of 'ink' to use with drawn lines only stay…

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Review

With Sonic the Hedgehog being on every electronic device that's in some way wired to the internet (and possibly on some varieties of toasters), it was only a matter of time before the sequel made its debut. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was a landmark title for the Genesis (or Mega Drive for those of you outside the US) that is still one of the consoles highest selling games. Much like the port of Sonic the Hedgehog for the iPhone the controls are simplified with a virtual d-pad for movement a…

R.O.S.M ( Revenge of the Summon Monsters ) Review

Review Varshia By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
R.O.S.M ( Revenge of the Summon Monsters ) Review

At first glance, Revenge of the Summon Monsters (ROSM) looks like another typical castle-defense game. Monsters walk in, while you upgrade your defenses to prevent them from destroying your castle. However, ROSM combines the classic castle-defense mechanics with regular tower-defense style monster pathing to come up with something that's new while being familiar to fans of each genre. Summoned monsters of the realm have decided to rise up against those who have enslaved them and being…

Review RedLynx Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Monster Trucks Nitro 2 Review

Yeeehaw! I lurves me some Monster Trucks! But in all seriousness, who doesn't get a little bit excited by these oversized vehicular behemoths and their destructive powers? Maybe you've never thought about it, but Monster Trucks Nitro 2 by RedLynx will make a believer of you as you flip, boost and smash your way to first place in this side-scrolling tilt racer. Once you've signed yourself up to a race you're slapped straight down in to a side-on view of your beastly ride. Acceleration…

Warpgate Review

Review Freeverse, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Warpgate Review

Warpgate by Freeverse has already had some time to warm up with its HD release on the iPad earlier this month, but how does it hold up for the iPhone? Following in the footsteps of games like Freelancer, Warpgate is a space trading and combat simulation that's perfectly suited for iDevices. What makes the genre so appealing is its blend of open-world mechanics with quest based objectives to convey an underlying storyline. Being action oriented, combat often represents the most complex…

Star Wars: Cantina Review

Review THQ Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Star Wars: Cantina Review

I guess it was really only a matter of time before the App Store was graced with a Star Wars themed management game. You play as Nia Adea in THQ Wireless' latest game Star Wars: Cantina and being the friendly happy-go-lucky lass that you are, you plunge headlong in to the world of managing a cantina to help your friend. Cantina keeps things simple and only requires tapping to perform actions. To counter this simplicity the game quickly throws you in the deep end, serving up more rowdy…

ESPGALUDA II Review

Review CAVE CO.,LTD. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
ESPGALUDA II Review

ESPGALUDA II by Cave is the real deal when it comes to 'bullet hell' shooters and despite being five years in the making for this adaption, nothing is lost from the 2005 Arcade original. This is the sort of game that makes regular shooters look like a stroll in the park and despite its fierce looks, this is a game that can be enjoyed by gamers of all levels. ESPGALUDA II opts for several control levels with left and right hand variants to give players a fighting chance to learn the ga…

Bounce On 2: Drallo's Demise Review

Review Team Phobic By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Bounce On 2: Drallo's Demise Review

Barring the excellent return to form of Sonic Rush, SEGA have had troubles recapturing what made Sonic the Hedgehog such a great platformer. It's hard to shake the feeling that Team Phobic have cracked an element of what made Sonic so good and have distilled it in to their latest game Bounce On 2: Drallo's Demise. There are two basic movement controls with the default being tilt based, but for those who are more comfortable with virtual pads buttons are also available. The level of co…

The Saboteur™ Review

Review Hands-On Mobile By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
The Saboteur™ Review

The Saboteur, released by EA for major consoles was received with mild interest. Set in 1940's occupied France, you play Sean Devlin on his quest for revenge against the Nazis. Hands-On Mobile has just released an iPhone version of the game, but just like its bigger brother on the 360 and PS3 it's a great game that just manages to miss the mark in every way. Sean is controlled from an angled top-down 2D perspective as he runs around causing general amounts of mayhem and destruction. A…

ZENONIA® 2 Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
ZENONIA® 2 Review

There's really not much to say about Gamevil's latest release of Zenonia 2. If you were a fan of Zenonia or of Action RPGs in any way, then this sequel is immediately worth grabbing thanks to a plethora of tiny upgrades that have made a great RPG even better. For those that still need convincing, read on. Much like the first in the series, gameplay revolves around an Action RPG style that's easy to pick up and play. The virtual pad moves your character, while a large action button per…

Flick Bowling 2 Review

Review Freeverse, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Flick Bowling 2 Review

If Doc Brown from Back To The Future had a crazy German half-brother, he'd be Baron Von Schtopwatch, the mad professor who hassles Jim and Jen at their local bowling alley. Stay with me on this one because it gets weirder. Your goal is to return to the modern day while challenging figures from history after Von Schtopwatch sends you back to ancient Egypt. Storyline aside, Flick Bowling 2 by Freeverse is a strange beast to handle. The "true to life" physics as the developers put it mak…

Castle Fantasy Review

Review Croquis Co., Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Castle Fantasy Review

Castle Fantasy by Croquis is a great new release for action-platformers on the App Store. While its controls still leave a lot to be desired, almost everything else is polished and kept simple making this a perfect addition to any hardcore gamer's collection. As with most standard side-scrollers the controls make use of virtual buttons to move side-to-side, jump, attack or shoot. Quirks such as only being about to double-jump while jumping up can throw off experienced platformer fans,…

The escape the room game become popular on the PC as a host of simple flash games emerged trapping the player in an area with some fiendish puzzles and pixel hunting. The genre made an excellent leap to the iphone platform last year with iEscaper - Escape from the Ninja's Lair, and now the sequel is upon us, titled iEscaper 2 - Escape from the Castle of the Doom.

Project "Thor" Review

Review Jury Shortki By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Project "Thor" Review

Project Thor by Jury Shortki is a bit of an odd-ball when it comes to classification. Strictly speaking it's another castle-defense game, but replace castle with planet and defense with Arkanoid. If nothing else, Project Thor demands attention for being so genuinely unique. It's hard to describe the gameplay, but it goes a little something like this: While defending a new planet for humanity, you control a giant shield that reflects incoming attacks while building a large temporary "o…
