Voodoo Dice Review

Review Ubisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Voodoo Dice Review

It felt like only a matter of time until Voodoo Dice by Ubisoft hit the App Store, with its simple controls and unique puzzle gameplay that seems perfect for games on the go. And honestly, who doesn't see a title like Voodoo Dice and not be somewhat intrigued? However, score one for the marketing division as Voodoo Dice doesn't involve chance or luck (as Dice would imply) and the Voodoo theme is just that, a visual theme. Oh well, at least the gameplay sucks you in yeah? Ostensibly, t…

Pro Zombie Soccer Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Pro Zombie Soccer Review

The development and release of Pro Zombie Soccer is almost a perfect storm of ideas, combining the still (amazingly) strong zombie market with the increasingly prominent football (soccer) crowd. It sounds like a marketing wet-dream, but it's hard to fault Chillingo's latest release as it begs you to sit down and finish this immensely fun and amusing title without a single break. You'll need to get your reflexes and rebound skills tuned up in order to crush the almost unstoppable wave…

Fruit Ninja Review

Review Halfbrick Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Fruit Ninja Review

UPDATE: The constant support and updates from Halfbrick for Fruit Ninja has been nothing short of spectacular and over time this title has grown from a fun time waster to something you can share with friends either by sniping high scores or by challenging them directly online with a multiplayer mode. Furthermore the addition of an 'Arcade' mode pits players against the clock with powerful power-ups that will test their slicing skills. Fruit Ninja just gets better and better over time a…

Review RockYou, Inc. By Kym Holmes, 4 years, 6 months ago
3D Mini Golf Challenge Review

If you're into mini golf, 3D Mini Golf is on par to be a hit. The game takes you through various themed courses providing challenges you must meet in order to advance. The game is controlled by moving your finger in the direction you wish to swing and sliding down from the ball to set your hit power.

Space Station: Frontier Review

Review Origin8 By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 7 months ago
Space Station: Frontier Review

The tower defense genre has been one of the more popular of the app store, patrly due to the simplicity of its touch controls.

Boom It Up! Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 8 months ago
Boom It Up! Review

Boom It Up! is a quick reflex arcade game where players must launch a cannon ball as high into the air as possible, much like the barrel shooting mini-games from the Donkey Kong Country series on the Super Nintendo. Obscure references aside, players must launch their cannon ball from one platform to another and blast as high as possible with the limited amount of balls. Players shoot their cannon balls by tapping on the screen and must time their shots correctly or risk crashing to th…

Snow Moto Racing Review

Review Dohi Sweden By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
Snow Moto Racing Review

Snow Moto Racing is the self proclaimed first snowmobile racing game available on the App Store by Resolution Interactive, but can this bite-sized racer compete against its bigger brothers? The controls are mostly tilt-based, using touches for performing stunts and other minor actions. Turning feels really nice though it may take a bit of initial adjustment to get used to what feels like two-levels of sensitivity while turning. Snow isn't the most common terrain for a racing game to s…

Review MADFINGER Games, a.s. By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 8 months ago
BloodyXmas Review

From the title alone, it’s safe to say that Bloody Xmas is not your usual happy Christmas game; unless of course you’re a serial killer. Either way, Bloody Xmas puts players in control of a badass reinvention of Santa as he must defend his workshop from thieving little creatures. So it’s up to you to dismember and cleave your way through the incoming waves of enemies so they don’t steal all of your presents. Santa is controlled by tapping and holding on the scr…

OMG Pirates! Review

Review Mika Mobile, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
OMG Pirates! Review

From the developer that brought you mass zombie slaughter in Zombieville USA comes the next beat'em up action adventure from Mika Mobile, OMG Pirates. Slaughtering pirates en masse couldn't be more fun, but that doesn't mean it'll be easy. The controls are a simple affair, which not only gives Pirates an old school feel, but makes the game easier to deal with on the iPhone. You move your nimble ninja with a virtual analogue stick and jump, counter, combo and flip out with the aid of t…

Alien Outpost Review

Review NewIsland Interactive By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 10 months ago
Alien Outpost Review

Alien Outpost is a new defense game from NewIsland Interactive and their first app for the iphone. They've certainly chosen a hard genre to break in to and the only thing that really separates it from the pack is the method of dispatching enemies, but despite this it still remains a fun game to pick up and blast through. Now that defense games have really started to branch out, it's hard to define Alien Outpost as being generic, but the controls are fairly standard to those familiar t…

Swingaling Review

Swinglaling is a Rope’n’Fly clone replacing the stick figure character with a small monkey like creature. Your goal is to swing as far as possible using low hanging tree branches to grab onto. The further you go, the higher your score will be and the more obstacles will appear to try and throw you off. You swing off each new branch by tapping on them to keep going. Players are recommended to swing a bit slower in order to keep going as far as possible as you may swing out…
