The Blocks Cometh By Halfbot Review

Review Halfbot By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
The Blocks Cometh By Halfbot Review

Don't mind the déjà-vu, it's not just you - we've been here before... quite literally; though this time The Blocks Cometh has been released by its original creators from Halfbot. However the developers aren't without their sense of humor and what started out as a relatively simple, yet fun Flash game, has bloomed in to a collaborative work that has partnered up several companies in an effort to create something wonderful. Much like The Incident from late last year, you'l…

Stylish Sprint Review

Review playus soft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Stylish Sprint Review

These days, if you're going to make an endless runner you better have a gimmick that will drag people in. Stylish Dash by playus soft seems to take this idea to heart, though building a game almost entirely out of gimmicks might be taking things too far. Tap to jump; tap mid-air to double-jump; tap and hold a third time to fly - by now this sort of control scheme is pretty much ingrained in the iOS gamer's consciousness, but it's great to see the addition of a 'flying' system as this…

Grim Joggers Review

Review 10tons Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Grim Joggers Review

Given the overwhelming amount of endless runners over the last year I thought it would be a long time before I'd be able to recapture the joy of exploring dangerous environments while showing off my precise skills in timing. After loading up Grim Joggers by 10tons I realized how wrong I was as I immediately devoured this game whole. Grim Joggers seems to hit all the right buttons when it comes to eliciting a smile as you begin your perilous journey with a pack of health-obsessed nuts…

Bullistic Review

Bullistic Review

It takes a lot of guts to put your money where your mouth is in an attempt to reinvent the wheel, but Millepede Creative Development have taken up the challenge with their animal-flinging title Bullistic. Players are given a large slingshot; a bunch of bulls; and a target of five various shops, filled to the brim with the finest in pottery goods ('China' if you will). It's not hard to see what this equation is meant to add up to and after flinging a handful of bulls in to the shop, te…

Ninja Sword Review

Ninja Sword Review

HalfBrick Studios have had no shortage of developers willing to jump on the bandwagon of Fruit Ninja, but who can blame these companies when such a simple idea remains consistently addictive well after its initial release. Ninja Sword by Bunz Software Development tries its hand at the formula, adding an accuracy-based twist that adds a bit of a challenge, but fails to capture the essence of what makes this such a fun Arcade gameplay style. Swiping on the screen will slice the boards c…


Clumsy Bob Review

Review Clickgamer.com By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Clumsy Bob Review

Clumsy Bob by Flygames and Clickgamer takes a somewhat odd approach to the 'endless' gameplay style by turning the Doodle Jump gameplay on its side, forcing the titular character Bob to constantly bounce on clouds while collecting bonuses to increase the final score. All you'll need is a steady hand and a bit of spare time as you tilt your iDevice to control the momentum of your cartoonish elephant on his journey. Various enemies must be avoided to prevent being consumed whole and oth…

UltraDeep Review

Review ViquaSoft Co., Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
UltraDeep Review

There's a reason why games that employ the 'endless' mechanic of games tend to be very hard - the longer you play, the more repetitive it feels and challenges provide obstacles worth overcoming. UltraDeep by ViquaSoft loses sight of this balance early on and you'll be reaching depths that are completely ridiculous even without the aid of gimmicky items that can purchased to 'aid' you. Tilting your iDevice will move your stick-figure spelunker back and forth, allowing you to fall off p…

Burn the Rope Review

Review Big Blue Bubble By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Burn the Rope Review

Burn the Rope by Big Blue Bubble fits in to the category of devilish puzzle titles that seems so simple on the surface, but so insanely difficult to master should you decide to go beyond merely passing each level with a bronze. All you have to do is to burn the rope based image as much as possible (hopefully burning it completely), however the major catch comes in trying to keep the flame burning upright while managing multiple burn points thanks to intersecting lines. Thankfully the…

Inspector Gadget's MAD Dash Review

Review XMG Studio Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Inspector Gadget's MAD Dash Review

As a child of the 80s I have long come to terms with the fact that I was raised by my TV to be an unabashed and rabid fan of some bizarre cartoon shows. Inspector Gadget is not the least of these and after years of not hearing the siren that signifies the start of an episode I was transported back in time thanks to 'M.A.D. Dash' by XMG Studio. If the title hasn't given it away, yes this is an 'endless' runner title, though to its credit the game has attempted to extend the value of th…

Review Armor Games Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
:Shift!2: Review

In a continued effort to bring their free Flash based titles to the App Store, Armor Games have recently launched the sequel to their popular screen-flipping puzzle-platformer ':Shift:', adding in a whole lot more content and some surprisingly interesting features that could help to change how the genre is treated in the future. The gameplay hasn't shifted much from the original and players will need to flip their character between the black and white sections of the screen (inverting…

Perfect Cell Review

Review Mobigame By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Perfect Cell Review

Sometimes the idea of classifying a game in to a neat pigeon-hole tends to break down; this isn't a bad thing at all, but when the some of the first thoughts that run through your head are, 'It's like Metroid meets Splinter Cell, but with a blob,' you know you're going to need to earn your paycheck trying describing this one. Perfect Cell by Mobigame is unique in its approach of action/infiltration style gaming and whether you opt to be the perfect killer or the perfect pacifist, you'r…

Run Like Hell! Deluxe Review

Run Like Hell! Deluxe Review

For the sake of clarity, I should point out that we are currently in the year 2010 and while I'm generally willing to 'go with the flow' on game concepts, it's somewhat quaint to see a game featuring a white dude running like hell from a bunch of cannibalistic islanders who have tagged him as their next feast. But, political correctness nonsense aside, the appropriately named 'Run Like Hell!' by Mass Creation uses the setup as solid motivator in their runner title and a great excuse to…

They Need To Be Fed Review

Review YoYo Games Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
They Need To Be Fed Review

By and large, one of the biggest challenges in most platformers is mastering the game's jumping mechanics to navigate an increasingly complex environment. Whether you're timing your jump to land just before making a kill or attempting to reach that elusive power-up, it's a struggle we've all shared. They Need To Be Fed by YoYo Games simplifies things by preventing players from being able to 'fall', but in its place is a gravity system that's just as likely to challenge your timing and…

Red Bull BC One Game Review

Review Digital Chocolate, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Red Bull BC One Game Review

Whether or not you're in to the B-Boy scene, watching professional dancers whipping up a flurry of agile moves is easy to appreciate and Red Bull Championship BC One by Digital Chocolate attempts to bring the best of this dance style to the App Store. However, it might be a bit of a stretch to call BC One an 'authentic dance game' as it's really just a straight rhythm game, but a good one none-the-less. Players need to tap out a tune matching rhythm by using four colored buttons on th…

Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit Review

I know you can't see my face at the moment, but if you could you'd notice the burning hunger in my eyes, the small beads of sweat at the edges of my brow and possibly the gnawing of my lip as I attempt to concentrate while I write. I really want to get back to playing Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit. After a few breaths and a drink of water I've calmed down and I realize that it's a shame the game only features tilt controls, however barring my own stupidity the game never really fa…
