Funkyball Worlds Review

Review Handmark, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Funkyball Worlds Review

Sometimes it's frustrating to find that a new App that strives to be more than just a simple mechanic palmed off as the entire game itself. Funkyball Worlds by Handmark is a stand-out from the most other physics-based platformers thanks to its charming elegance that makes it easy to pick up and play, but hard to put down. The trick to Funkyball is all in the friction. Levels consist of a series of platforms that need to be navigated while avoiding traps as you charge your way to the g…

iBumpy Galaxy Review

Review Ivanovich By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
iBumpy Galaxy Review

iBumpy Galaxy by Ivanovich is a puzzle platformer that's not exactly easy get excited about. As a free game it's hard to complain about the basic gameplay, but when you're asked to pony up the cash for the remaining levels any issues you have with the gameplay start to look like serious flaws. To be fair to iBumpy, it's a very basic concept - collect as many objects in each level as you can and reach the exit. The faster you do this with the maximum amount of items, the better your fi…

Review Polarbit By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
Raging Thunder 2 Review

There are plenty of racing sims on the appstore, but sometimes you just feel like an arcade experience. Raging Thunder 2 has you driving as fast as possible, smashing into things and vying for first place. Earn enough cash and you can purchase new cars, and upgrade them for faster driving, and more intense smashing. Like most iphone racers, acceleration is handled automatically and turning is tilt based. There is a button for braking and one for boosting (and you'll definitely be hold…

Rayman 2: The Great Escape Review

Review Gameloft By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
Rayman 2: The Great Escape Review

Back when every developer and their dog was making 3D platformers, one of the standouts was the Rayman series by Ubisoft, with its ghost limbed protagonist and colourful world. The sequel made its way into 3D and has now been ported to the iphone. The Glade of Dreams has been taken over by robot pirates from outer space! They have imprisoned most of the locals. Rayman must collect the thousand Lums and reunite four magical masks to awaken the world spirit to get rid of the pirates. Co…

Ragdoll Blaster 2 Review

Review Backflip Studios By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 8 months ago
Ragdoll Blaster 2 Review

Ragdoll Blaster was a really fun game by Backflip Studios. Trying to shoot ragdolls out of cannons into a target in as few shots as possible made for some clever level design and addictive gameplay. Well, the sequel is upon us, and the goal is the same. The question is have they expanded upon the idea enough to warrant an entirely new game? Control is just like the first. Touch the screen to shoot the cannon. The power of the shot is determined by how close or far away from the cannon…

Farm Frenzy 2 Review

Farm Frenzy 2 Review

Farm Frenzy 2 is the much anticipated and definitely needed sequel to the farm management and strategy series from Alawar Entertainment. Much like the original, it's still a frantic game that requires precise management at higher levels, but new refinements to the artwork and interface make this a much more polished product. Each level presents the player with a specific challenge to complete that requires careful management of your resources to succeed. All of the controls are touch…

Garters & Ghouls Review

Garters & Ghouls Review

The steampunk fantasy genre has always been a fascinating concept with its cast-iron constructions, gear driven gadgets and just a touch of the occult to make it all work. With this in mind Namco have released Garters & Ghouls (GnG), a twin stick shooter that features a zombie-killing undead babe. GnG may play like a twin-stick shooter, but it feels like an action RPG as you grind your way between areas collecting power-ups and cash to upgrade your character. The controls are stan…

Monkey Flight Review

Review Donut Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Monkey Flight Review

Banana fueled jet propelling farts, trampoline elephants and palm tree catapults... all this and more could be yours to enjoy if you try Monkey Flight by Donut Games. Ok, ok, perhaps it's not quite so compelling when you say it that way, but flinging a monkey is far more fun than it sounds. Monkey Flight is a high-scoring catapult game in the same vein as games like Crazy Penguin Catapult and scores you on the amount of fruit you pick up while bouncing around the screen. There are sev…

Arodius - A Dual-Stick Shooter with Plentiful Power-Ups Review

Review Mobile Force By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Arodius - A Dual-Stick Shooter with Plentiful Power-Ups Review

Sure, you could draw a parallel between the name Arodius and classic arcade shooter Gradius, but you'd be leading yourself astray. Despite some similarities to arcade shooters this latest release from Mobile Force is a great twin-stick shooter that's just begging to be your favorite. There are no strange controls to be had with Arodius as it sticks to the usual left-stick to move and right-stick to fire controls. A special weapon button appears at the bottom of the screen once you've…
