Free Zombie Hero - Kill Angry War Ninja Review

Review Fabrication Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months 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, 3 years, 7 months 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, 3 years, 8 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 Digital Chocolate, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 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…

Phoenix Wright Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 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…

FIFA World Cup™ Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 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…

Audi A1 Beat Driver Review

Review VEEMEE By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years 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

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, 1 month 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…

STREET FIGHTER IV Review

Review CAPCOM By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 1 month ago
STREET FIGHTER IV Review

If you're going to make a fighting game for the iphone, you best be sure you get the controls right, especially if multiplayer is involved. Street Fighter IV by Capcom has been released on the touch device and it's amazing how faithful it is to the proper arcade/console version. Control is all touch based, using an on screen joystick and four buttons with the touch controls being very responsive. This reviewer had trouble pulling off special moves when needed, but has always had that…

FINAL FANTASY Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 1 month ago
FINAL FANTASY Review

Final Fantasy brings back a lot of memories. Originally released in 1987, it was one of the first console RPGs to gain popularity due to its battle mechanics, giant explorable world and intriguing story. The game was remade in 2004 for the Nintendo DS, ported to the PSP in 2007, and now that same port is on the iphone in 2010. The world has descended into chaos and a prophecy speaks of the warriors of light that will carry the world crystals and restore them to their former glory. The…

Golden Vault Slots Review

Review Pokie Magic By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Golden Vault Slots Review

Golden Vault Slots is yet another addition to Pokie Magic's collection of slot-machine games available for the App Store. But does the energetic opening music and images of golden vaults promise more than it can give? Like all Pokie Magic games the slot machine is driven by touch controls and sports an automatic play button if you're feeling a bit lazy. The special feature mode of the game requires a nimble hand and mind as you attempt to align locks to open the activated bonus vault.…


Military Madness: Neo Nectaris Review

Review Hudson Entertainment By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 2 months ago
Military Madness: Neo Nectaris Review

For those of you who can't get enough of turn based strategy games, one of the originals has been ressurected for the iphone. Military Madness was first released in 1989 and its sequel has been given a facelift. The story is a basic affair of axis vs allies, but with a futuristic vibe. Control is all touch based. To move a unit, you tap on it, tap where on the grid you want it to go, and then tap again to confirm the move. Attacking is similar as you double tap the enemy you wish to a…
