Braveheart Review

Review Gaijin Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Braveheart Review

As knights go, Richard - the hero of Gaijin Entertainment's latest title, Braveheart - is sort of a quirky character. After practically assaulting the daughter of his liege he is sent out to obtain the Holy Grail from the clutches of a Dragon, however instead of smashing his way through foes he'll spin, spin, spin his way to victory instead. Players have a choice of either controlling Richard purely through gesture controls or a combination of virtual stick/button and gesture controls…

PipeRush Review

PipeRush Review

The townsfolk in Pippa's hometown are counting on her to fix their pipes and in PipeRush you'll help her to speed through the process of not only connecting every house but also making sure the pipes water tight. Right from the get-go you'll notice that PipeRush is, for all intents and purposes, a puzzle variant of games like Pipe Mania. Pipes will be generated randomly, filling up your conveyor belt and you'll need to drag the pieces in to place to ensure that everything is connected…

Ultrablast Review

Review RetroFlux By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Ultrablast Review

After the recent epilepsy-inducing madness of Dodonpachi Resurrection it's great to step things back a little in the shoot'em-up genre by slipping in to Ultrablast by RetroFlux. While it may not feature over the top bullet hell style gameplay, its storyline and dynamic game mechanics make this a different beast to approach. Players can choose between three basic movement controls either using touch, virtual stick or tilting to maneuver around the screen. Firing is automatic, however p…

Hero of Sparta II Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Hero of Sparta II Review

No, it's not just you. I've got an overwhelming sense that I've been here before too, but if it has to be said Hero of Sparta II (HoS2) by Gameloft has kept it's standards high and in this latest installment in the saga of Argos you'll go head to head against, well, just about everything that moves. However before you get to chopping the obligatory horde of undead and mythical creatures, you'll have to brace yourself for some mighty fine examples of how voice acting shouldn't be done.…

Mice Heist Review

Review Trickshot Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Mice Heist Review

Roll with me on this one... For some reason you've decided that it'd be a top idea to drop your cheese in to a giant pile in front of a series of conspicuous mice-holes, only to find out that they're a nest of anthropomorphic critters out to steal your cheese. Well in Mice Heist it's just another day as usual, but at least you get to tap them to send them on their way, with the occasional disco-dancing cat also dropping by to scare them off. Once you've chosen a difficulty level, the…

Red Star Review

Review XS Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Red Star Review

The Red Star, for those who follow comics, is a series set in an alternate-universe post-World War II Russia that mixes technology and magic together. A game for the PS2 was developed and released in 2007 and after XS Games' recent adaption of the title to the PSP, iPhone users are now also able to experience this intricate beat'em up on the go. A few concessions had to be made to ensure that Red Star was playable in the same way for the iPhone and the first thing most players will no…

THE A-TEAM Review

Review GameHouse By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
THE A-TEAM Review

There are certain expectations you can leave behind when tackling a product that comes out of the A-Team franchise, generally a strong storyline or realistic action are amongst these. So with that said, The A-Team by GameHouse has reduced its action title to the basics, with explosions, guns and so many bad-guys (tm) to kill that you'll wonder why they haven't been branded as war criminals... oh wait. To keep the game fast paced, a lot of the action is pulled out of your hands, giving…

Babylonian Twins HD Premium iPad Review

Review AppBarbecue Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Babylonian Twins HD Premium iPad Review

Almost everyone has a friend they know that owned an Amiga during the 90's and I just happened to be 'that guy' for all of my friends. I'd extoll the virtues of its amazing graphics and the unique games that blossomed from classic developers like Bullfrog, System 3 or Team 17, but they'd look at me funny and go back to their SNES or text-based adventure games on the PC. Babylonian Twins comes from three developers who started developing a game for the Amiga in the early 90's and after…

X2 Snowboarding Review

Review Exient IP Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 months ago
X2 Snowboarding Review

Trick-based racing games have always come in and out of vogue and the popularity genre leaders like the Tony Hawk series are a great way of checking how strong the genre is doing. X2 Games has released X2 Snowboarding despite the currently luke-warm state of trick-racing, but is its gameplay good enough to go against the odds? X2 combines several control methods, some of which can be changed to your preference, for great control over your snowboarder of choice. Accelerometer controls…

Pocket Farm Review

Pocket Farm Review

Pocket Farm by Egerter Software is part strategy, part time management, part arcade puzzle and all around not quite the best effort for a company that has prided itself on several "firsts" for the iPhone. Few of the game aspects hold up on their own and despite the combination of them, the game feels fairly flat. fter selecting your choice of farmer, you can start your new farm simply by selecting an available square and using the all-purpose "action" button to purchase new items, wor…
