Pixel Fighters Review

Review Kyle Newsome By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Pixel Fighters Review

Occasionally, despite all evidence in front of me that says I shouldn't like something, I find myself beating my head against a brick wall trying to find the one thing that makes all of the time spent playing the game worthwhile. Pixel Fighters by BitWit Solutions is, potentially, a fantastic tactical title and manages to merge JRPG-like combat and tropes with more traditional tactical action-point based mechanics. It's an odd fit, but one that really does work, making it all the more…

Hero Academy Review

Review Robot Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Hero Academy Review

If you've spent any time gaming on the PC or even major consoles it's hard not to have come across Orcs Must Die, Robot Entertainment's third-person take on tower defense gameplay. Now iOS gamers can experience a taste of the developer's whimsical sense of fun thanks to their free-to-download tactical title, Hero Academy. Part card game, part turn-based strategy, players pit themselves against opponents from around the world in asynchronous matches. As such you can take part in multip…

Dungeon Hunter 3 Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Dungeon Hunter 3 Review

As a life-long gamer, sometimes it's hard to separate expectations of what a game should be from what a game can be. Allow me to clarify: Just because I expect a game to work a certain way, doesn't mean it should or indeed that it's the best way. With that said, despite still having many positive aspects, Dungeon Hunter 3 by Gameloft is a dangerous example of how many could come to see 'gaming'. iOS gamers will remember Dungeon Hunter as one of the premier Dungeon-Crawling Action-RPGs…

LostWinds Review

LostWinds Review

It almost goes without saying, but there's a lot of overlap when it comes to Nintendo's touch and waggle interfaces on the DS and Wii, and Apple's iDevices - essentially anything that focuses primarily on the ability to swipe as a control system is ripe for recreation on touch devices. English developer Frontier Developments introduced themselves on the Wii platform with LostWinds and thanks to its simple, yet clever style of control, iOS gamers can also experience this charming title…

The Adventures of Tintin™ - The Game Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
The Adventures of Tintin™ - The Game Review

During the hottest of the long summer days at high school, one of the best ways to beat the heat was to score a spot somewhere in the air-conditioned library and while the time away with a humorous novel or more rarely, a graphic novel. New printed editions of Hergé's Tintin series were some of the most prized acquisitions and soon I'll be able to relive the same experience as I beat the seasonal heat while enjoying Tintin in the cinemas. The release of Gameloft's tie-in game,…

Grand Theft Auto 3 Review

Review Rockstar Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Grand Theft Auto 3 Review

Editor's Note: For the sake of transparency, yes, I live in Australia and as such the version of the game played was the 'Australian Edition'. As such no hookers were hurt during the making of this review. Except that one time I decided to use the side-walk as a freeway, but then again who hasn't done that? *police siren* *door cracking in background* I'm sorry officers! I was in a rush, please believe me! Slipping back in to Grand Theft Auto 3 for the first time in almost a decade wa…

Six-Guns Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Six-Guns Review

At times its hard to know whether or not a game is meant to be taken seriously, or if it's just an elaborate piece of satire meant to be enjoyed sardonically. Six-Guns by Gameloft treads a fine-line where the developer's usual penchant for emulation is almost completely derailed by its experimental 'freemium' model of gameplay, making it perhaps the best offering in this classification while simultaneously providing very little in the way of meaningful gameplay. Freemium games have co…

Raccoon Rising Review

Review Romper Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
Raccoon Rising Review

A game is definitely more than the sum of its parts, yet especially in reviews, we tend to evaluate certain areas separately. For instance in Raccoon Rising, a reviewer might be completely blown away by the detailed art and clever use of 3d in the visuals, but totally be put off by the mechanics of the game itself. With your home being attacked by robots, it's time to put those ninja raccoon powers to use. The gameplay revolves around vertical climbing. Tapping the screen will send yo…

Batman Arkham City Lockdown Review

Review Warner Bros. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Batman Arkham City Lockdown Review

For many gamers, Batman Arkham City has long since been put to bed, even if you spent the time to complete all the optional and downloadable content. So it comes as a surprise to see Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios dropping a mini-prequel to their console title this late in the proceedings, but fans like myself aren't going to look down on what is essentially a late gift (or is that an early Christmas present?). Unfortunately the timing of the game isn't terribly opportune as its…

NFL Flick Quarterback Review

Review Full Fat By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
NFL Flick Quarterback Review

It has only been three months or so since Full Fat made their last appearance on the App Store and once again the developer has expanded the 'Flick' series to include all 32 official teams in their new title, NFL Flick Quarterback. While the idea was first introduced in Flick Golf Extreme!, Flick QB requires players to judge their flicks to not only accurately reach their goal, but also to predict where the receiver is running to in order to score bonuses. To make things even harder t…

The Bard's Tale Review

Review inXile Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
The Bard's Tale Review

There's a song and a dance to be made about the release of inXile Entertainment's classic title The Bard's Tale, but then we'd have to talk about puns and that's Dave's forte, not mine. So, over seven years since its release on home consoles and eventually the PC, we iOS gamers get a chance to check out this 3D Action-RPG title. Weighing in at around 1.7 GB installed on your iDevice, you'd hope that the game was uncut, and thankfully (or is that regrettably) it is. What this means for…

Bullet Time HD Review

Review Kiloo By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Bullet Time HD Review

Free games tend to fall in to one of two categories if you excuse the usual subset of 'trial' games from the mix: They're either incredibly polished and ready to bite down on your wallet at every opportunity they gets, or they're a cheap attempt at harvesting ad revenue with simple and overplayed clones. Now that I've made my overly simplistic generalization for the day I can only point a finger in disgust at Bullet Time HD for one major reason: It has contributed to ruining gamer's e…

Blueprint 3D Review

Review FDG Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Blueprint 3D Review

Solving a jigsaw puzzle is a pastime that has survived for generations and may well continue to see its appeal in to the future as fans of the simple time-waster test their observation skills to match and piece together beautiful images one jagged piece at a time. Blueprint 3D by FDG Mobile Games pushes the limits of the concept by taking imagery and blowing it up in to dozens, if not hundreds of fragments ballooned out in to a 3D space and it's up to you to reassemble it in mere secon…

Princess Punt Review

Princess Punt Review

What if a developer was to take angry birds, and fashion an RPG system around the addictive, flinging gameplay? What is the RPG system incorporated included shades of unique classes such as fighters, lancers, archers, and wizards, that all had their unique methods of attack? What if each level had multiple difficulty settings that unlocked more interesting loot and experience, and what if these special items recovered could be leveled up and mastered for more damage? Sounding good? Wel…

Wizardry Labyrinth of Lost Souls Review

Review ACQUIRE Corp. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Wizardry Labyrinth of Lost Souls Review

I'm prepared to be lynched by the mob, but first hear me out: While I was never a personal fan of the first-person RPG while growing up (even despite some amazing examples of the genre on the Commodore Amiga, I get what makes them so appealing - I love the challenge of overcoming my ignorance and mastering an otherwise puzzling system of gameplay. Unfortunately for Wizardry Labyrinth of Lost Souls this is 2011 and we have better ways to remove 'hand holding' without making a player fee…
