Review Armor Games Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
:Shift!2: Review

In a continued effort to bring their free Flash based titles to the App Store, Armor Games have recently launched the sequel to their popular screen-flipping puzzle-platformer ':Shift:', adding in a whole lot more content and some surprisingly interesting features that could help to change how the genre is treated in the future. The gameplay hasn't shifted much from the original and players will need to flip their character between the black and white sections of the screen (inverting…

Secret of Mana Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Secret of Mana Review

If you haven't had the pleasure of playing Secret of Mana by Square (now Square Enix) on the SNES and you're a fan of RPGs, then I highly recommend grabbing this title. Oh wait... this is the beginning of the review. So er, as I was saying, Secret of Mana, otherwise known as Seiken Densetsu 2 (Holy Sword Legend 2) is one of those bullet-point moments in gaming history that has resulted in the game becoming a cult hit and an influential title thanks to its wholly unique gameplay style.…

N.O.V.A. 2 - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
N.O.V.A. 2 - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Review

A year ago the first title in the N.O.V.A. series managed to stun audiences with its incredibly sharp visuals, paired with excellent near-console quality gameplay that may have felt slavish to its inspirations, but still managed to impress regardless of this. The sequel is much the same, though the inclusion of a larger campaign; career-based online multiplay; and smarter AI opponents shows that Gameloft are serious about taking this game to the next level. Those who have played Gamel…

Super Stickman Golf Review

Review Noodlecake Studios Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Super Stickman Golf Review

UPDATE: A recent update has added more courses and achievements, but more importantly players can now duke it out in a 2-4 player multiplayer mode on local or online networks (matchmaking performed through Game Center). What was already an amazingly addictive title has squeezed out a little extra fun and is worth grabbing more than ever before. First there was Stick Golf and the verdict was good. Now, there's Super Stick Golf and Noodlecake Games don't just deserve a hearty golf-clap,…

Super Blast 2 Review

Review exozet By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Super Blast 2 Review

It hasn't been terribly long since the release of Phantoom Entertainment's 'endless' arcade shmup title 'Super Blast' was released in the App Store, but the sequel has already dropped and Super Blast 2 packs a bunch of new features that out muscle its predecessor. Much like the original title the game is an endless adaption of a shoot'em-up where players face an immediate game over if a single enemy gets past them. However this isn't as hard as it sounds as you're outfitted with some…

Backbreaker 2: Vengeance Review

Review NaturalMotion By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Backbreaker 2: Vengeance Review

Over a year ago, brutal tackles and deft maneuvers punctuated Backbreaker Football from NaturalMotion and after all of this time players can now pick up the sequel to try their hands not only at dodging their enemies in new ways, but to also turn the tables and tackle some runners in the Vengeance mode. More depth has been added to the classic Tackle Alley mode of Backbreaker as players unlock and utilize new maneuvers to either jump or truck opponents instead of merely dodging your w…

Sonic The Hedgehog 4™ Episode I Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Sonic The Hedgehog 4™ Episode I Review

It has been a long time coming, but Sonic The Hedgehog finally feels like it has come back home. My reunion with the blazing blue hedgehog was a tentative one - I won't lie, I was scared I'd be burned like I was with Rush 2 - but once I dove in I was at once relieved and surprised to find that things just felt... right. And this is no mean feat, especially for iDevices without physical inputs - a bane to all platformers trying to recapture the past glory of the 8 and 16 bit era. Howev…

Blue Defense: Second Wave! Review

Blue Defense: Second Wave! Review

Blue Defense: Second Wave! by Cat in a Box Games not only continues the epic saga of Red versus Blue, but it picks up right where the (now) classic Blue Defense left off and has more than a few new tricks up its sleeve. Much like the first title you're playing through a 'defense' scenario, pitting your planet against the incoming alien hordes that would destroy your world. Depending on the chosen control scheme, players can either tilt and rotate their device to move their powerful ca…

Gangstar: Miami Vindication Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years ago
Gangstar: Miami Vindication Review

At long last the next in the Gangstar series has hit the App Store and Gameloft have once again piled in just enough tweaks and flourishes to show that they're not just taking the easy way out when it comes to sequels. Right off the bat I'm glad to say that other than the basic similarities shared by sandbox titles, this one feels right at home on the iPhone and situating the game in a 'modern' Miami setting makes it harder to make the obvious GTA comparisons. As you make your way thr…

Beyond Ynth Review

Beyond Ynth Review

Around this time last year gamers were able to get their hands on a neat, unique puzzler named Ynth and despite it's extremely frustrating style it still showed a lot of potential for improvement. Now 'Beyond Ynth', the spiritual sequel by FDG Entertainment and Krabl, has been released all of that potential seems to have been fully realized. Much like the original your goal is to cross a distance of open space, often full of hazards, by rolling boxes with complex designs around the fi…

Blaze: Fire Puzzle Review

Blaze: Fire Puzzle Review

As unique experiences go, I'd have to say that 'Blaze: Fire Puzzle' definitely sits on a lonely pedestal with a handful of games like Zen Bound as the kind of puzzle title you gravitate towards not for the difficulty, but for the sheer experience of it. And it's not without reason that I invoke Zen Bound as a comparison for this title by developer Handmark as its relaxed style will be immediately familiar to those who have spent some time painting 3D shapes with rope. Your goal is to…

Top Gun 2 Review

Top Gun 2 Review

The first title in the Top Gun series by Paramount Digital Entertainment was a fairly fun arcade shooter in the style of classics like Afterburner and while it had some issues it was certainly worthy of its franchise title. So it falls to the sequel to step up the game, adding new planes, new visuals and slightly tweaked gameplay, but with so many changes how much of the original fun action title is truly left? Top Gun 2 has at least kept the basic Afterburner style of gameplay, with…

Review Naughty Bits By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
iShoot 2 Review

It has been some time since iShoot stormed the App Store and gave people a seriously fun turn-based shooting challenge for their iDevices. With the release of iShoot 2 by Naughty Bits fans of the original might be diving at the opportunity to pick up the sequel, but it might also be worth pausing for a moment as there are a few changes that may not sit well with fans of turn-based shooters. The controls have changed, utilizing two large slide bars near your tank to set the general pow…

Dark Nebula places you in control of an orb traveling through six different environments and 19 levels, tilting your way through dangerous trap filled zones and in a new twist you'll also be able to bring the fight to your enemies with a brand new combat system.

Review Majic Jungle Software By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Chopper 2 Review

Way back in the 'way back when' the Apple II was host to a neat side-scrolling action title called Choplifter. Over two years ago, this genre saw a revival on the App Store thanks to the Chopper series and now, after a long wait, fans of the original can get their hands on this juicy and surprisingly featured sequel for their iDevice of choice. The basic controls are incredibly simple and intuitive to learn, requiring tilt-based movement to direct your helicopter with precision around…
