STREET FIGHTER IV Review

Review CAPCOM By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months 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, 6 months 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 616 Digital LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 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, 7 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…

This new port has been vastly improved from the original but maintains the key elements that made it a cult classic.

It Review

Review Coeus Systems Inc. By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 11 months ago
It Review

It is a quick reaction game that requires players to quickly perform touch actions using the games screen. The longer your streak is, the higher your score will be. Players are required to perform each action as the description pops onto screen. For example if ‘Tap It’ comes up players will need to tap the screen with one finger. While the actions are simple, most of the time, players will need to repeat an action until you move onto the next action as the touch recognitio…

Galcon Labs Review

Review Hassey Enterprises, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 11 months ago
Galcon Labs Review

Real-time Risk type games have become a bit of a hot design choice of late, but most end up feeling like a rehash of all the others while maybe only bringing one new mechanic to the table. Galcon Labs by galcon.com unashamedly keeps the basic gameplay in tact and instead brings multiple game modes to trump others in the genre. You control your virtual armies through touch controls that are easy to master. You can select or deselect planets you control and then assign them a target to…

LUMINES™ - Touch Fusion Review

Review Q ENTERTAINMENT Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 12 months ago
LUMINES™ - Touch Fusion Review

From its humble and somewhat exciting beginnings on the PSP, Lumines has now found a home on the iPhone. Interestingly, although major publisher Gameloft are producing ports of this rhythm-puzzle game to other mobile devices, the original developer Q Entertainment has taken charge of the iPhone port. Gameplay is similar to a Tetris-style block-matching game with points being scored after a bar sweeps across the screen at a specific rhythm clearing away matching blocks. Combos are scor…

Solitaire Siege Review

Review BadBumble By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 1 month ago
Solitaire Siege Review

Solitaire games are practically married to mobile phones. It's a partnership that makes sense as they're just digital versions of games almost everyone learns to play in one form or another. Solitaire Siege is BadBumble's take on Pyramid for the iPhone, adding new gameplay elements to keep the game interesting while also bundling the classic game and an arcade game as a bonus. As a simple card game, you only need to tap the cards on screen. This would be hard to mess up, but sometimes…

TETRIS® Review

Review Electronic Arts By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 2 months ago
TETRIS® Review

Is there a gamer alive who hasn't played Tetris? It's been ported to every system imaginable, and now with touch controls, EA have brought it to the iPhone. The goal is the same as always. One of seven shaped blocks will fall. You need to rotate and place them so that a line is created, and then erased. The more lines erased, the faster the game gets. If the blocks reach the top, game over. At first glance, the touch controls seemed like a bad idea. Wouldn't tilting the iPhone be bett…
