Guitar Rock Tour 2 Review

Review Gameloft By Damian Chiappara, 5 years, 4 months ago
Guitar Rock Tour 2 Review

In the tradition of console music/rhythm games, Guitar Rock Tour 2 puts you up on stage playing a number of classic Rock and Roll tracks. With 16 tracks available and the option to play drums, as well as guitar, there's plenty of musical content to keep you rocking on your iPhone. The controls are the usual rhythm game style, where notes fall from the top screen and you hit them in time to the music, but now players tap their fingers on the screen to hit the notes. At times you might…

Lifeboat Review

Review Fuel Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 4 months ago
Lifeboat Review

If someone asked you to balance a dinner plate on your hand; then placed a bunch of marbles that have their own individual take on the concept of gravity on the plate; then they asked you to kindly manage to balance the plate in just the right way to cause them to fall in to pockets on the side of the plate; you'd have a fair idea of what to expect with Lifeboat by Fuel Games. As the captain of the boat it's your duty to roll the ship's deck around to assist your oddly rotund set of p…

Chewie Chu Review

Review Ludigames By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 4 months ago
Chewie Chu Review

Chewie Chu, published by Ludigames, is a well presented and interesting action puzzle platformer that challenges players with timed levels and physics based solutions - but there's no escaping the fact that it is also a very frustrating game to play. Your aim is to unlock the exit by moving your worm via slingshot from wherever he's currently anchored into switches, edible bugs etc. A lot of time and patience needs to be given to learning the controls (despite being fairly easy to pic…

Bejeweled 2 + Blitz Review

Review PopCap By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 5 months ago
Bejeweled 2 + Blitz Review

Bejeweled is known as one of the most addictive games on the Internet. Bejewled 2 is pretty much the same game with a couple new gameplay modes, and it's been ported to the iPhone. In each level there is a screen full of gems. By swapping the placement of two gems, you create chains of three or more of the same type, which disappear, give you points, and cause new gems to fall into the game field. Control is simple. Want to swap two gems? Simply use your finger to swap their placement…

ROLANDO 2: Quest for the Golden Orchid Review

Rolando 2 picks up where the first game left off. Your Rolandos have sailed back from their adventures and accidentally brought a strange sickness back with them. They must now find the Golden Orchid to cure the sickness. The gameplay itself relies on rolling through levels, solving puzzles and other physics based challenges in order to get closer to finding the Golden Orchid. The game controls are simple, you tilt the screen to roll and flick up in order to jump. There are times duri…

Review Tapulous, Inc. By Damian Chiappara, 5 years, 5 months ago
Tap Tap Coldplay 1.1 - 13 Tracks Review

Tap Tap Revenge – Coldplay is a title that’s pretty much self explanatory; the music and rhythm gameplay of Tap Tap revenge mixed with a soundtrack of Coldplay songs. The gameplay has players tapping the buttons to the beat of the song in order to get the highest score possible. Like all music rhythm games, players tap the different buttons when the corresponding note drops from the top of the screen. Players must also shake the iPhone in different directions when arrows d…

X-Plane Extreme Review

Review Laminar Research By Beau Burtenshaw, 5 years, 5 months ago
X-Plane Extreme Review

The X-Plane series for iPhone has always offered a top quality flying experience. Like its predecessors, X-Plane Extreme delivers once again however this time with long awaited addition of combat aircraft. As with other X-Plane titles, X-Plane Extreme takes full advantage of the iPhones built in accelerometers for its flight controls. As you would expect, tiliting the iPhone up and down controls pitch and yaw while tilting left and right control steering. This scheme works perfectly a…

Wolfenstein RPG Review

Review Electronic Arts By Damian Chiappara, 5 years, 5 months ago
Wolfenstein RPG Review

Wolfenstein RPG is a title that seems pretty self explanatory. The game is based on the well known first person shooter series Wolfenstein but employs the use of RPG elements, such as turn based combat and earning experience points. And before you cringe at the sound of the mix of genres, they actually work quite well together. The majority of the game functions the same as a regular FPS game, moving using the D-pad and collecting items by tapping on the screen. But the combat is turn…

Mind Games 2 Review

Review Player X By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 5 months ago
Mind Games 2 Review

The brain training genre of games have often felt like a hodge-podge collection of mini games that combine puzzles and arcade elements, scoring you for the sake of progress. In other words, they were less about training and more about the challenge. Mind Games 2 may be a fairly simple offering compared to other brain training games, but this one feels like the real deal; your brain will feel the burn. Most games use a simple touch to select answers from the plethora of game modes, tho…
