Beast Boxing 3D - Monster Fighting Action! Review

Review Goodhustle Studios, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Beast Boxing 3D - Monster Fighting Action! Review

Where games like Super KO Boxing went for a classic Punch-Out! style for their arcade boxing gameplay, Beast Boxing 3D by Goodhustle Studios tries to up the ante by sticking with touch controls and a 3D design that's clever and gorgeous to watch in action. Jumping in to Beast Boxing couldn't be more intuitive and players have access to three basic punch types thanks to tapping and swiping the screen. Quick jabs only require a tap, but hooks and uppercuts are triggered by swiping acros…

ChuChu Rocket! Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 12 months ago
ChuChu Rocket! Review

If you never had a chance to play ChuChu Rocket! the first time around on the Dreamcast, then you're in for a treat as SEGA have ported this title over for the App Store. This classic puzzle title of 'cat and mouse' antics takes a somewhat surreal twist as you attempt to help the mice (Chu-Chus) to escape the clutches of the hungry cats (Kapu-Kapu). Both the mice and the cats will run endlessly around in loops, turning to their right every time they hit a surface and you'll need to di…

BIT.TRIP BEAT Review

BIT.TRIP BEAT Review

If we consider Pong to be the equivalent of a popular child actor of its time - seen everywhere, but not quite fulfilling its potential - then BIT.TRIP BEAT is that child actor's attempt to reinvent itself during the heady early 90's period, full of synth beats and slatherings of neon to hide its aging concept. That may sound harsh, but BIT.TRIP BEAT by Namco is a hard title to enjoy despite its basic gaming roots of hitting pixels back with a paddle you can move up and down the scree…

BUBBLE BOBBLE DOUBLE Review

BUBBLE BOBBLE DOUBLE Review

When TAITO decided to update their franchise for the App Store I had mixed feelings; I had the usual fan-boy hope that it's not 'ruined' and the inner-child optimism that they 'get it right'. And now that I've been playing Bubble Bobble Double, I have to say it's only a notch or two off being perfect. It loses these points right out of the gate for the lackluster virtual stick controls for the 'classic' mode - a direct port of the arcade release - however the addition of an AI control…

Free Zombie Hero - Kill Angry War Ninja Review

Review Fabrication Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Free Zombie Hero - Kill Angry War Ninja Review

Swedish developers Fabrication Games had a burning question that they had to answer for themselves, 'What do you get if you make a game using all of the App Store's most searched for phrases?'. The answer came in the release of 'Free Zombie Hero - Kill Angry War Ninja' and to be fair, if that doesn't score some interest right off the bat, then I'd be surprised. In Zombie Hero you have to avenge the deaths (or is that re-deaths?) of your zombie family at the hands of a horde of ninjas…

Real Golf 2011 Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Real Golf 2011 Review

After the recent release of Let's Golf 2 from Gameloft I'd have thought there would be a bit more of a cool-off between golfing titles, however here I am with Real Golf 2011 in my hands and I must say I'm not complaining one bit; it's a real killer title. Real Golf 2011 is, for lack of a better word for it, the 'adult' equivalent of the Let's Golf franchise. Gone are the whacky environments and cartoonish characters; in go the beautiful country club vistas and real life golfers. You'l…

Chopper 2 Review

Review Majic Jungle Software By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Chopper 2 Review

Way back in the 'way back when' the Apple II was host to a neat side-scrolling action title called Choplifter. Over two years ago, this genre saw a revival on the App Store thanks to the Chopper series and now, after a long wait, fans of the original can get their hands on this juicy and surprisingly featured sequel for their iDevice of choice. The basic controls are incredibly simple and intuitive to learn, requiring tilt-based movement to direct your helicopter with precision around…

Wild West 3D Rollercoaster Rush Review

Review RockYou, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 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…

Developer 'The Binary Mill' aren't kidding when they say they're out to redefine bullet-hell shooters for the App Store with their latest release 'Assault Squadron'. It won't take long till all of your continues melt away, but that won't stop shmup fans from diving right back in. Assault Squadron gives players several options for controlling their fighters, allowing you to choose between two touch options, a virtual stick and even tilt based movement. The tilt-precision is responsive,…

Phoenix Wright Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Phoenix Wright Review

Phoenix Wright for your iPhone? Heck yeah! In keeping up with adapting games for the App Store, CAPCOM have released their iconic adventure series to the iPhone, utilizing a modified version of the Nintendo DS release. Much like the DS version, the game is touch driven through menus though some changes have occurred to make better use of the iPhone's limited screen space. Instead of simple select menus, most require you to hold your finger down to open up and scroll to the various opt…

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
FIFA World Cup™ Review

It's that time of the season again and FIFA World Cup has finally made its debut on the App Store thanks to Electronic Arts. With so many successful high-quality football titles to their name it goes without saying that this high-quality standard has been passed down to the iPhone, making this a solid game for any football enthusiast to enjoy. Players are controlled with a basic analogue stick and virtual button setup that's easy to get used to. Movement is smooth and fine control of…

Review VEEMEE By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Audi A1 Beat Driver Review

Audi A1 Beat Driver by VEEMEE may feel like an excessive attempt at marketing, but instead of the usual 'racer' that most people would expect they've decided to opt for a music rhythm game. 'A rhythm game?' I hear you ask? Why yes, VEEMEE has paired great new rock tracks with gameplay taken from the popular indie PC game 'Audiosurf' and throws Audi branding in to the mix to come up with a cocktail that's surprisingly palatable. Similar to most rhythm games, 'beats' appear in multiple…

Vampire Origins RELOADED Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Vampire Origins RELOADED Review

Chillingo's latest action game is an interesting experiment in controls for the action genre. Vampire Origins takes classic Resident Evil style gameplay and twists it with comic-book inspired storytelling producing a unique blend of dark influences. But lets get things clear, we're not talking about sparkly vampires here - no, these are the Nosferatu-inspired horde of undead and assorted baddies. A basic analogue and touch-to-fire controls form the basic controls for movement, but for…

Mega Man® II Review

Review Beeline Interactive, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 7 months ago
Mega Man® II Review

This is a difficult review to write. Mega Man II is this reviewer's favourite videogame of all time. This 1988 release on the NES has been ported to the iphone with a whole new streamlined experience. Dr. Wily is at again, and it's up to Megaman to stop his nefarious schemes. This iphone port comes with a few options that affect controls and gameplay. The game can be played in portrait or landscape view. Portrait makes the touch joystick and buttons harder to use while landscape featu…
