Siegecraft Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Siegecraft Review

For the sake of posterity and for those who arrive at this review well after it goes online, Siegecraft by Blowfish Studios and Crescent Moon Games arrived during an eventful week resulting in it almost floundering. This isn't because it was ignored, but rather because it was released just before iOS 5 and the iPhone 4S, both of which being the optimal requirements for playing this game. Performance patches have helped to smooth things out for fourth gen iDevices, but it's clear this…

HighFlyer DeathDefyer (i4) Review

Review Game Mechanic Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
HighFlyer DeathDefyer (i4) Review

Barring those who have a dreaded fear of heights I'm sure a lot of people dream of being able to fly. The idea of being able to take off and own the sky can be so overwhelming that people jump off high points just to experience the sensation of freedom it brings, no matter how brief. HighFlyer DeathDefyer by Game Mechanic Studios is all about an explorer living in a world thrown high in to the sky; where free-falling means you can make a living claiming remnants of Earth's past. After…

Do Do EGG! Review

Review PONOS By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Do Do EGG! Review

Do Do Egg is a game of increments. First you learn how the game works, then you learn how to extend combos, then you learn how to chain together half the board, then you win. This is a take on the very popular match-3 genre but instead of swapping around gems in groups of three or more, you're drawing lines between two eggs of the same color that have two other eggs in the middle. As long as this holds true, you can continue your line until you've clocked in a mammoth combo, and you ne…

Tiny Heroes Review

Review Simutronics Corp By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Tiny Heroes Review

Tower defense games are a dime a dozen these days. With that being the case it's often hard to be excited about yet another addition to the genre. Tiny Heroes is not the first TD game to switch the dynamic around, putting you in the shoes of the villains and having you defeat incoming heroes, but it presents itself with enough solid gameplay and charm to have a fighting chance. Each level begins with a new dungeon resting between the waves of heroes and your treasure room. Before the…

AeroDrift Review

Review Alan Marghitola By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
AeroDrift Review

Time-trial racers can range from the most mundane or vehicular simulators to the most insane of concepts such as flipping gravity. jAggy Race by SevenOnly mashes the two ends of the spectrum, ending up with something that feels more like an arcade racer injected with some seriously whacky psychotropics and despite the handful of levels available you're unlikely to master this game any time soon. This is, simply put, because the game is not above changing the rules mid-race, often seve…

GoatUp Review

Review Llamasoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
GoatUp Review

There exist in this world a whole host of games that you either 'get' or you 'don't. Often they border on artistic works, poking fun at or otherwise playing around with the conventions of gaming for its own agenda, but ultimately some sort of personal understanding or connection is needed to forgive the quirks these sorts of games create. In the grand scheme of Llamasoft's past work, GoatUp is perhaps the least challenging title to approach and that's saying a lot when you're playing…

Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack! Review

Review Devolver Digital By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack! Review

You have to admire a developer that can create a character so fearsome that it only takes a distant whisper of its tireless scream to send a shudder down your spine. Which, according to Croteam themselves, is kinda weird considering the Beheaded Kamikaze of Serious Sam fame has no head to scream with. Thankfully in the iOS outing of Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack! by Devolver Digital you get to control a Kamikaze instead of being its intended victim, just don't get too excited because yo…

Race illegal: High Speed 3D Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Race illegal: High Speed 3D Review

At times I wonder if the Arcade Racer has lost some of its charm, more specifically I wonder if the need to simplify the controls for iOS users has resulted in a genre that has managed to mute an already toned-down sport too far. Race illegal: High Speed 3D by Apetrus and Chillingo tries every trick in the book to wow the player in to continuing to play, but the end result is something that lacks the energy it tries to portray. Sparks, blurs, revving engines, flames and whining turbos…

Frogger Decades Review

Frogger Decades Review

Updates of a classic arcade game can be a tricky balancing act. You're trying to entice fans of the original so the gameplay needs to be very similar, yet to bring in new fans, it has to be different enough to warrant a look. Frogger Decades comes very close to this balance but ultimately falls a bit short. The game is based around the jumping mechanic which is handled by swiping on the right side of the screen. Want to jump in a certain direction, just swipe there and Frogger will ho…

DrawRace 2 Review

Review Ubisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
DrawRace 2 Review

The last time we saw RedLynx on the App Store was after their release of 1000 Heroz, an ambitious time-trial style platformer with daily unlockables (amounting to a crazy amount of levels if you happen to jump on board right now). Drawrace 2 marks the return of RedLynx's signature line-drawing title under the banner of Chillingo with just about every aspect of the game receiving a turbo-boost injection of shiny features. Just like some finely tweaked race-car, the basic engine of simp…

Treemaker Review

Review Mikrotie Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Treemaker Review

I often wonder where all the ninja-rope swinging titles that had once captured the mobile gaming consciousness not so long ago disappeared to and then Treemaker by Mikrotie comes along to remind me. Rope swinging lives and dies upon the player's ability to predict where they're going at all times, giving them a level of finesse and control that borders on almost prescient in games like Hook Champ. Instead of predictability, Treemaker makes its swinging mechanic the largest 'challenge'…

Let's Golf! 3 Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Let's Golf! 3 Review

The Let's Golf series from Gameloft has come to represent the casual, fun side of golfing - giving players some sense of realism paired with cute avatars, fantastic and unreal locations, and plenty of unlockables to make competitive play against friends all the more exciting. The third and latest iteration of the title doesn't change its basic tune all that much, pairing all the same elements together, but with one major twist - it's now a Freemium title. This seriously changes the fu…

Temple Run Review

Review Imangi Studios, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Temple Run Review

Imangi Studios isn't the kind of company to mess around with a name, what with games and apps like Word Squares, PhotoMarkr, Max Adventure and Harbor Master being almost exactly what you'd think them to be. So when they named this game Temple Run, it was almost guaranteed to be about some sort of Hollywood archeologist running away from natives. Like several endless runners of-late, Temple Run takes a shot at mastering the 3D perspective, opting in this case to have players run in to…

NyxQuest Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 8 months ago
NyxQuest Review

It's hard to believe NyxQuest is a port of a Wiiware game released in 2009. Not due to its presentation or anything along those lines, but rather that upon playing the game, you'd swear it was created with a touch interface in mind. Most people should know the story of Icarus. Given wings held together by wax, he flew too close to the sun, the wax melted, and as a result he plummeted to Earth. On one of his flights he discovers the goddess Nyx and the two fall in love. The world below…

Pigs in Trees Review

Review PAN Vision AB By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Pigs in Trees Review

I'm not sure what it is that made the war between birds and pigs escalate to such intense levels, but apparently the swine and avian forces are at it again. Pigs in Trees places you in control of a flying pig (get it?) in an attempt to destroy the waves of birds attempting to destroy his home tree (maybe it's a large cache of Unobtanium?). Each map is set in a top-down perspective with the player drawing a path on screen for the pig to follow. Ending a path on a bird will initiate an…
