Frogger: Hyper Arcade Edition Review

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, 2 years, 4 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, 2 years, 4 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, 2 years, 5 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, 2 years, 5 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…

Babel Rising 3D Review

Review Ubisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Babel Rising 3D Review

Consider this reviewer slightly impressed, if only because a relatively unknown, but otherwise unique and fun title has not only received a sequel, but a considerably significant one under a major publisher. Babel Rising 3D by Ubisoft and Mando Productions places you in the morbidly entertaining position of a vengeful god, punishing the humans who would, in their vanity, seek to reach heaven through their blasphemous tower - it's dark, it's funny, and you will fail. Constantly. That l…

Virtua Tennis Challenge Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Virtua Tennis Challenge Review

Unlike so many who fondly remember Virtua Tennis from its heyday on the Dreamcast, I recall many a shiny dollar being pumped in to the machine at the local Arcade (or if I was lucky, a bunch of free plays during a lock-in night). Combining both the complexity of athletic Tennis and the simplicity of Arcade controls, it was a smash hit. Now on the iOS it has a chance to ensnare even more people, but as you'd expect it's not an entirely smooth ride. Despite the minimum fourth-gen iDevic…

Men in Black 3 Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Men in Black 3 Review

Let it not be said that all 'freemium' titles are bad - sure they have their huge flaws, but time enjoyed is time well spent. With that said, time wasted is time not enjoyed and definitely not well spent and this is where the genre comes in to contention: If you lack the motivation, then what are you playing for? Men in Black 3 slides uncomfortably in to this second problematic kind of thinking, albeit  presenting all the visual polish and flair Gameloft can muster, but it's not e…

Penny Time Review

Penny Time Review

Licensed games, whether they be for a movie, TV show, book, or a brand always make gamers raise their eyebrows with caution. It's not the idea of marketing tie-ins, but more that in about ninety five percent of cases, these games are absolutely terrible. Isn't it funny then that when a brand spends the time and effort to make a truly engaging game, the idea of the brand tie-in seems almost quaint? That's exactly what we have here with Penny Skateboards, and their game Penny Time. Anyo…

FastBall 3 Review

Review Klik! Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
FastBall 3 Review

[This title was the featured Mini-Review for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 11th of May, 2012] The Impossible Game is responsible for opening gamers eyes to the beauty and simplicity of jumping in platformers. Endless runners do much the same, but they can't be as unfair in their design. FastBall by Klik! Games sticks with small levels packed with jumping challenges that eventually require insane feats of precise timing to complete. Unfortunately the third in the series has dropped t…

N.O.V.A. 3 - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
N.O.V.A. 3 - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Review

N.O.V.A. 3 (NOVA3) is not above bombast and indeed it kicks things off in an explosive and gorgeous way. What follows is most certainly Gameloft's best entry in the science-fiction FPS series, but an unrelenting series of sequences that seem incomplete or untested drag the game back from the brink of excellence. The setting is a familiar one - Earth (or what remains of it) is under attack and you as the disgruntled, gravel-voiced hero are called back (despite saying you were done help…

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 Review

Review Warner Bros. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 Review

It may have taken some time, but the LEGO Harry Potter series finally comes to a close on the iOS platform with the release of Years 5-7. The first release managed to do a neat job of packaging the hand-held version for a touch interface, but it seems to struggle at times with the somewhat more complex sequel, bringing things down a notch. Most notably, Years 5-7 covers the rather action-packed period of the Harry Potter novels, which means plenty of wave-wanding and spell-slinging. M…

Gunman Clive Review

Review Bertil Horberg By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
Gunman Clive Review

When one thinks of run and gun platforming set in the wild west, one might think of the fantastic arcade title Sunset Riders. Now western games are rare in themselves but there is a market for them, and with western platformers being ever rarer, it's nice to see a game like Gunman Clive emerge. The girl has been captured by the villain and it's up to Clive to rescue her while enacting some old western justice on all who stand in his way, be they outlaw, predator or waterfowl. One of t…

Coign of Vantage Review

Review bobblebrook By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
Coign of Vantage Review

For those of you not in the know, a voxel is essentially a pixel in the third dimension, so instead of images made up of single colored squares, you know have images made up of single colored cubes. Coign of Vantage has strewn these voxels around and through the power or rotation, it's your job as the player to find the correct vantage point and put the image back together. There are two game modes; normal, and 'ten on time'. In normal mode you start with forty five seconds on the clo…

Shark Dash Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Shark Dash Review

After first learning about Shark Dash, one thought pinged around my mind, 'I wonder who developed this game for Chillingo/Clickgamer'... after a double-take I realized I was dealing with a Gameloft title and my world promptly fell on its head. All of this may sound melodramatic, but gamers have long come to terms with the App Store's cliches, though if Shark Dash proves anything it's that Gameloft has the chops to produce fresh and addictive games. You should know the basic formula by…
