VS. Racing 2 Review

Review Northcube AB By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
VS. Racing 2 Review

While other top-down racers are content to keep pushing the visual boundaries of the iOS platform, VS. Racing 2 sticks with the tried-and-true 2D sprite system (albeit with some 3D elements adding depth), and even more surprisingly, controls that require - at most - two fingers. The overall effect is that of the game feeling very tightly designed - it efficiently throws you amongst a variety of AI opponents on winding and twisting tracks where you vie for pole-position to earn as much…

King's Bounty: Legions iPad Review

Review NIVAL, INC. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
King's Bounty: Legions iPad Review

While it's hard to complain about the price of freemium games, the content is often questionable and reliant on gating players towards its paid-for features, arguably by devious means. There are many exceptions to many rules and King's Bounty: Legions is just such a game. Either playable on the PC through Facebook or via iOS on your iPad, it's a scaled down version of the popular turn-based tactical title that retains the combat and trades resource management for crafting and 'energy'.…

Chimpact Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 8 months ago
Chimpact Review

OK. We all know that monkeys love bananas. Did you also know they apparently share our trait for greed when it comes to diamonds? The higher you go in the treetops, the more of these shiny gems are ripe for the taking. That's Chimpact in a nut shell... or should we say banana skin? There are canopies in the canopy the can be flung with your finger to slingshot the simian through each level. Each stage has a linear path with a couple hidden areas ripe with bananas or gems. If you follo…

PITFALL!™ Review

PITFALL!™ Review

For something like a 30th Anniversary you'd think Pitfall would be given a much larger 'hurrah' - the game has gone through differing types of 'remakes' over the years, but now the game has been reduce to an auto-runner. Don't get me wrong, it's a perfect match and ultimately works in Pitfall's favor, but with so many competitors it ran the risk of slipping under the radar. I guess that's the power of a name like Pitfall for a company like Activision - you just can't help but bring at…

BLAZING STAR Review

Review SNK PLAYMORE By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 8 months ago
BLAZING STAR Review

There are many game systems that while having a decent collection of titles, just never gained widespread market appeal and withered because of this. Luckily thanks to downloadable services, re-releases, remakes, and the App Store, a lot of the best games of these systems can be played by a whole new generation of fans. One such example is the Neo Geo Home System, and the subject of the current review, Blazing Star. Released in 1998, what we have here is a classic side-scrolling shoot…

Spy vs Spy Review

Spy vs Spy Review

Spy vs Spy is the kind of retro game that was always bound to have a sequel on the iOS platform in one form or another. First Star Software's 1984 classic formula has already been aped on the App Store, but thanks to Robots and Pencils, the original game in all its glory (as well as all new levels) are now available for the iPhone and iPad alike. You, as well as your rival spy, have entered an embassy and your goal is to escape with all of the items in the level, hindering or temporar…

Moops Review

Review Moops Games Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 9 months ago
Moops Review

Now I certainly can't be the only one who upon hearing this game's name thought back to a certain Seinfeld episode involving a boy in a bubble and a game of Trivial Pursuit. Funnily enough, it has nothing to do with that whatsoever. No, it seems the town of Moopville is under siege by pesky critters, and in a last ditch effort to rid themselves of this menace, have hired Flunk and Dunk, two exterminators to make sure the job gets done. What follows is an interesting blend of action adv…

The Dark Knight Rises Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
The Dark Knight Rises Review

If you haven't seen the latest in Nolan's series of Batman films, then be assured that we'll steer away from any spoilers here in the review. While Gameloft's tie-in game only tangentially follows the film narrative, it attempts to hit the main beats and as such it's a bit of a minefield for those yet to visit the cinema. The second concern we'll address is more or less the elephant in the room - the recent release of The Amazing Spider-Man gave us more than enough reason to be worrie…

METAL SLUG 3 Review

Review SNK PLAYMORE By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
METAL SLUG 3 Review

[Editor Update: It seems the iCade support is not 'official' - that is to say, without modifications, physical controls are not yet available for METAL SLUG 3. Hopefully this can be added in a later update.] If there's one game most responsible for causing me to waste my time at an arcade, it's probably NFL Blitz, but in a close runner-up is the METAL SLUG series in all of its incarnations. No matter which version or where I see it, I'll pump credits in to it. There have been many pre…

Tiny Wings HD Review

Review Andreas Illiger By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
Tiny Wings HD Review

With so many auto-runners and endless titles attempting to pack in bigger environments, faster gameplay and deadlier enemies, the appearance of Tiny Wings by Andreas Illiger wasn't just a breath of fresh air, it was a complete game-changer. All of a sudden gamers had objectives to complete with tangible rewards and challenging achievements to attempt - the fact that you were playing as a bird with tiny wings that's unable to fly properly was the cute icing on the cake. Now almost a ye…

Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition Review

We've all seen the tabletop retro arcade machines at a hipster-ish coffee shop, or maybe at a family friendly restaurant, and honestly, who hasn't been tempted to put in a few coins to relive (or just try out) a few classics? Eventually the rose-tinted glasses aren't enough and you realize why we've moved on - it's nice to pay a visit to the forefathers of modern gaming, but you wouldn't want to stay there. Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition attempts to gussy-up the original classic and pa…

Bank Job Review

Review Screwtape Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
Bank Job Review

Aussie developer Screwtape Studios aren't exactly new to the iOS scene, but you'd be forgiven for thinking they'd been around for much longer considering the quality of Bank Job's presentation. While it may be a relatively basic endless auto-runner, there's an undeniable charm to Paulie Barbosa's thieving antics. Your job is that of scarpering off with as much loot as possible, while avoiding the many traps (and bombs) that line the corridors of the bank you're inside. The controls co…

DEAD TRIGGER Review

Review MADFINGER Games, a.s. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
DEAD TRIGGER Review

Zombies, guns, first-person perspective. It's a formula that's hard to mess up and MADFINGER Games certainly doesn't drop the ball with DEAD TRIGGER, a rote, level-by-level approach to shooting the undead with increasingly powerful weaponry. There is a story buried in here too, though you'd be forgiven for considering it mostly irrelevant as text boxes flood your screen after every story mission, only to unlock more story and side-missions to earn more cash and experience for bigger a…

Catapult King Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
Catapult King Review

[This title was featured as the Mini-Review for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 15th of June, 2012] In our time we've seen a lot of box-smashing, enemy crushing, physics-flingers come and go - some have succeeded, at least temporarily, while many others fall under the weight of trying to be another Angry Birds. Catapult King by Wicked Witch takes the gameplay to the third dimension, something that's relatively rare as it is, but also manages to pair it with incredibly fine-tuned contr…

Temple Run: Brave Review

Review Disney By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
Temple Run: Brave Review

When we first reviewed Temple Run by Imangi, we never imagined it would end up exploding in popularity as it did later that year - the delay between release to almost ubiquity was considerable, but it goes to show that a simple, but well executed concept can eventually make its mark. Now the game has been twisted to fit the often infamous task of being a movie tie-in, featuring Merida from Disney Pixar's latest 3D film, Brave. For those familiar with the original game, very little ha…
