Review Radiangames By Alex Beech, 3 months, 1 week ago
JoyJoy Review

There is nothing new about JoyJoy’s premise. At heart it is a classic twin stick shooter formed from the same mold as Smash TV and Geometry Wars. What developer Radiangames has attemted to bring to this tried and tested formula is an attractive visual style, and versatile weapons system. You must guide your ship around an arena populated by ever increasing waves of enemies. Collecting them from fallen foes, you can hold a total of six ammunition types. These include spread…

Darkside™ Review

Review Clockwork Pixels By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Darkside™ Review

First and foremost when discussing Darkside by Clockwork Pixels, one has to commend the game for being a free title that's more akin to a demo than an opportunity to nickel and dime its players through in-app purchases. Downloading this twin-stick shooter will give you the arcade mode with limitless play, and for the price of ninety nine cents, you unlock the full game which includes two additional modes, and the use of screen clearing smart bombs. Whether you wish to spend the money o…

Inferno+ Review

Review Radiangames By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 2 months ago
Inferno+ Review

Especially in the last five years, the twin-stick shooter genre has taken off. First with the success of Geometry Wars and then by the explosion of the games here on the iPhone. The problem arises in that so many of the games get the basic formula right that it gets hard to stand out from the crowd. There seems to be a check-list in place. Beautiful lighting and particle effects? Check. Great balance of weapons and monsters for high score play? Check. Tight and responsive controls? I'm…

Beat Hazard Ultra Review

Review Cold Beam Games Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Beat Hazard Ultra Review

Games that revolve their play and mechanics around music are something special. What's even more special are those games that allow you to use your own music library as not only this ensures you have levels based around music you enjoy listening to, but it creates almost limitless content. Beat Hazard has been around on Steam for a while, turning any song in your library into an adrenaline pumping twin stick shooter. Now for a lot of people the visual assault of this game made it unpla…

Super Cyclone Review

Review Miniclip.com By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Super Cyclone Review

Oops, we seem to have stumbled upon another twin stick shooter. Luckily for us, not only is Super Cyclone well made, but as you would hope of every addition to the genre, it adds a couple neat little things to the standard 'fly around and blast stuff' gameplay. First off, the controls are nice and responsive. The ship has a tight turn to it, but this never leaves you without an evasive escape opportunity when the enemy ships come. The goal of each level is to defend the stargate from…

Infinity Field Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Infinity Field Review

Ever since the success of Geometry Wars, the twin stick shooter has become a staple of the iPhone's game library. Many games have tried to capture the same feeling of fun and visual excitement, and even Geometry Wars itself got released with a great reception. Infinity Field is Chillingo's entry into this genre and they've pretty much hit the ball  out of the park. The first thing you'll notice when you load up either one of the many game modes or the campaign is how tight the co…

Garters & Ghouls Review

Review NAMCO BANDAI Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Garters & Ghouls Review

The steampunk fantasy genre has always been a fascinating concept with its cast-iron constructions, gear driven gadgets and just a touch of the occult to make it all work. With this in mind Namco have released Garters & Ghouls (GnG), a twin stick shooter that features a zombie-killing undead babe. GnG may play like a twin-stick shooter, but it feels like an action RPG as you grind your way between areas collecting power-ups and cash to upgrade your character. The controls are stan…

Review InMotion Software, LLC By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Catacombs Review

Ever since Guantlet, dungeon crawlers have been a simple, and fun game genre.

Daisy Mae's Alien Buffet Review

Daisy Mae's Alien Buffet Review

Twin stick shooters are becoming a popular genre in the appstore, but it takes something special to stand out from the crowd. IUGO have thrown out Daisy Mae's Alien Buffet onto the iphone, which is a solid entry into the genre with a grindhouse feel, fun weapons, and rapidly increating difficulty. The standard twin stick controls are only the default for Daisy Mae. Two other controls schemes are available, one replacing the shooting stick with a button, and for those looking for an ea…

Guerrilla Bob Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 6 months ago
Guerrilla Bob Review

Guerrilla Bob is a fast paced twin stick shooter than sets up players for the same level of explosions and brainless carnage you’d expect from a Michael Bay film. Players take control of wise-cracking, moustache toting badass Guerrilla Bob as he makes his way on a long strewn trail of revenge, through countless enemy soldiers and empty machine gun shells. Players use the two on screen joysticks to control Bob’s movement and direction of fire, much like Minigore. In each le…

Minigore Review

Minigore Review

Minigore is a very well polished twin stick shooter for the iPhone. You play as John Gore who is trapped in a forest. From out of the bushes appear hostile little black furry critters, and it's your job to fend them off for as long as you can. At the bottom of the screen are two sticks. The left stick moves John around while the right fires his gun in any direction you point it. The controls aren't as accurate as they probably should be but they do their job. As you mow down the critt…
