Blue Defense: Second Wave! Review

Review Cat in a Box Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
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, 3 years, 6 months 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…

GEON™ Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
GEON™ Review

After its release on the iPad it was only a matter of time until GEON by Strawdog Studios made its way on to the iPhone as well. Published by Chillingo, this hyper-speed Pac Man style puzzle platformer is certainly flashy in its appearance, but instead of bringing the full experience from major consoles this pint-sized game trims back the fat to try and make it more appealing for on-the-go gamers. It's probably best to forget the game's tilt controls as this game demands far too much…

Fire Dragon Review

Review Joybean By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Fire Dragon Review

Fire Dragon by Joybean is an unfortunate arcade title where you must collect as much fruit as possible before various monsters or blocks of ice bludgeon you to death. It's a simple title and its controls match the simple theme with tilt controls to slide your dragon back and forth along his wooden platform and touching the screen to fire a burst of flame straight up. Various groups of fruit will drop from the sky and must be blasted to release them from their icy prison. If you're luc…


Angry Bunny: Ninja Revenge Review

Review Ran Zhang By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Angry Bunny: Ninja Revenge Review

It's unfortunate to see another game developer taking the short-track for their latest release, but 'Angry Bunny: Ninja Revenge' by Ran Zhang takes the well established Doodle Jump style of vertical endless gameplay and tacks on a few variations in order to give it a unique flavor. This isn't entirely successful though as jumping can feel somewhat erratic, with your ninja bunny vaulting past several platforms in one moment and just barely scraping by to the next level in the next. How…


Kaboom's Paratrooper Review

Review Kaboom Industries LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Kaboom's Paratrooper Review

Kaboom's Paratrooper is a stunningly simple new title from Kaboom Apps where you'll have successfully land as many paratroopers as possible while avoiding hazards on the way down. It's a simple idea, but Kaboom's elegant style makes this an easy game to jump in to and enjoy. After pushing your way through the initial tutorial levels, you'll gain full control over the fate of your paratroopers. Tapping planes as they zoom past will release one paratrooper per tap which will need to be…

Drift Mania Championship Gold Review

Review Ratrod Studio Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Drift Mania Championship Gold Review

I honestly don't get the attraction to drift racing, which is odd considering its popularity with many of my friends and indeed around the world. However, after spending time with Drift Mania Championship by Ratrod Studio I came close to understanding and if nothing else it's an impressive title at a bargain price that most racing fans should find hard to ignore. Drifting, as the game points out, is the sport of being in control of being out of control. The interface is amazingly eleg…

Ecco the Dolphin Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Ecco the Dolphin Review

Once again, SEGA has dragged one of their premium titles from the 90's kicking and screaming on to the App Store and the lucky pick this time is Ecco the Dolphin. This loveable aquatic mammal has been left behind to discover why his pod was sucked up in to the sky and he'll travel around the globe and time to get to the bottom of things. SEGA's Genesis emulator for the App Store is put in to overdrive to get Ecco blasting his way through the seas and the controls are surprisingly good…

Aerox Review

Review Synoptical Studios Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Aerox Review

If you've got a steady hand, a bucket-load of patience and a penchant for impossible physics based platforming, then Aerox by Synoptical Studios is the game for you. For everyone else, it's an interesting tilt-controlled platformer that boasts intuitive controls and clever physics that challenge your skills while providing a feast for the eyes. The tilt controls automatically zero based on how you're holding your device at the time the level starts, which is perfect when you're prepar…

Gorillaz - Escape to Plastic Beach Review

Review Matmi By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Gorillaz - Escape to Plastic Beach Review

Ever since the turn of the century Gorillaz has gone from a funky project by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett and has turned in to a multimedia juggernaut that threatens to consume us all (this may or may not be entirely out of proportion to reality). 'Gorillaz - Escape to Plastic Beach' by Matmi is the latest in media tie-ins for the band and you'll get to take control of the deranged Murdoc as he attempts to reign in the band and defend their island home. Murdoc takes flight in a cust…

Wild West 3D Rollercoaster Rush Review

Review Digital Chocolate, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Wild West 3D Rollercoaster Rush Review

Digital Chocolate have had a good run with the 3D Rollercoaster Rush series, adding a few different themes and other basic changes along the way. 'Wild West' is the latest in the series, but instead of the fast-paced thrills of its previous incarnations, this title has taken a completely different direction. The game no longer relies on tilt control alone and now allows players to control the forward/backward movement as well as the tilt via touch controls. Players are still in the bu…

Magnetic Shaving Derby Review

Review Nyarlu Labs By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Magnetic Shaving Derby Review

After checking out the screenshots for Magnetic Shaving Derby (MSD) you'd be forgiven for steering clear, opting not to jump in to what clearly looks like a crazy title. Nyarlu Labs have succeeded in distilling iconic and random concepts in to a title that's easy to play and fun to experience. Players can choose between touch or tilt controls for their magnet, however thanks to the way the physics simulation works neither one is truly superior to the other. Dragging your magnet around…

Gravity Block Review

Review Playsteria By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Gravity Block Review

Gravity Block by Playsteria is nominally a physics based puzzler, but leaving it there would be doing the game a disservice. Much like Labyrinth-clones, players must transport an inanimate block to the exit through a maze of conveyor belts, traps, disappearing walls and warps, but instead of analogue tilt controls all you can do is change the direction of gravity. The screen is split in to quadrants, allowing you to quickly tap and redirect the direction your cube can fall in. A small…

Super Laser: The Alien Fighter Review

Super Laser: The Alien Fighter Review

EpicForce, the developers behind 'Super Laser: The Alien Fighter' compare their new shoot'em-up to the classic days of Arcade titles that would have punters popping quarters in, one after the other, just to master them. It shouldn't come as a surprise, but this is hardly hyperbole considering that this comes from the same team that developed 'iFighter', a real high water mark for SHMUPs on the AppStore. Players can take their pick of three basic control styles, maneuvering their ships…

Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 (US) Review

Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 (US) Review

The Pro Evolution Soccer series has garnered a lot of respect from some fans of the sport thanks mostly to its weighty and realistic feeling players that smoothly maneuver their way across the pitch with practiced skill. PES 2010 is Konami's first release of their popular franchise on the iPhone and fans can expect the same attention to detail present in its bigger console brothers. There are three control schemes to choose from, with a classic stick and two-button configuration commo…
