Fumes Stunt Racer Review

Review Sector3 Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Fumes Stunt Racer Review

I was never a huge fan of Stunt Car Racer (SCR) - yes, yes, 'blasphemy' I know - but I was having too much fun butting my head against games like Impossible Mission to master a title as subtly complex as SCR. Fumes Stunt Racer (FSR) by Sector3 Games is a spiritual revival of the seminal racing simulator and for once I'm glad I'm not dealing with rose-tinted glasses. FSR is not a title that forgives people for just jumping in and blasting away; no, players will need to come to grips, f…

Blue Defense: Second Wave! Review

Review Cat in a Box Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Blue Defense: Second Wave! Review

Blue Defense: Second Wave! by Cat in a Box Games not only continues the epic saga of Red versus Blue, but it picks up right where the (now) classic Blue Defense left off and has more than a few new tricks up its sleeve. Much like the first title you're playing through a 'defense' scenario, pitting your planet against the incoming alien hordes that would destroy your world. Depending on the chosen control scheme, players can either tilt and rotate their device to move their powerful ca…

Mr. Bill Review

Review Beeline Interactive, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Mr. Bill Review

Oh no! I can't believe that I never heard of this popular Saturday Night Sketch until recently and now my woeful lack of familiarity of 70-80's late-night sketch show trivia has let me down. Never mind, I'm sure I'll pick things up as I go as Mr.Bill from Capcom puts this pop culture creation in to his very own game. And in typical fashion things aren't looking so good for Mr.Bill and his family as they try to deal with the poor job climate by taking up Sluggo's offer of working at a…

Pocket Frogs Review

Review NimbleBit LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Pocket Frogs Review

As entries in to the 'freemium' model of games go, Pocket Frogs by NimbleBit has a unique charm of its own. Instead of a farm or a castle to play with, you'll need to breed and take care of your collection of frogs, sharing and cataloging each of the 10,000+ frogs while maintaining multiple habitats to keep them all happy. OK you don't have to collect EVERY frog, but once you've started your journey in to breeding these beautiful creatures you'll start checking your way off the game…

Burger Queen Review

Review Crecat Soft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Burger Queen Review

I'm sure there's no way that 'Burger Queen' is trying to reference anything other than the fact that the daughter of a man who owns a large fast-food chain is now taking control of the company, a 'queen of the burgers' if you will. Yeah, I'm sure that's what Crecat Soft meant. If the App Store icon didn't give it away, this is a management style game of the fast-food variety and you'll need to ensure that all of your customers are served in a timely manner to make ridiculous amounts o…

Zombies Ate My Baby Review

Review Eccentricity By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Zombies Ate My Baby Review

I'll be perfectly honest, it was the name of this game that drew me to it - a morbid curiosity compelled me. Thankfully 'Zombies Ate My Baby' is nothing like I imagined and in fact this action title from Eccentricity was a surprisingly exciting game to jump in to. You'll have to protect your protagonist, Cheyenne, as she tries to prevent the latest in a line of men in her life from dying as they seem to be prone to being eaten by Zombies. For most levels this involves tilting your cur…

shibuya Review

Review Nevercenter Ltd. Co. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 12 months ago
shibuya Review

Some games are downright devious in their attempts to keep players addicted to their games and Nevercenter, the creators of 'shibuya', have crafted their arcade puzzler with these cunning traps in mind.  The basic gameplay is amazingly unique and can take some time to wrap your head around and this is the first trap the sinks its claws in to you. Players need to line up two or more of the same colors to clear them off the board, however colors are given in a random order and can…

Hot Plates Review

Review Big Mouse Media By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 12 months ago
Hot Plates Review

UPDATE: First I must apologize for posting this review early in error, however most of the content still stands with a couple minor exceptions. The latest patch adds a new micro-game mode for periods where you only have a short time to play. It's a neat addition that solves the problem of the main game taking too long to reach a challenging level of play, but some difficulty selection would still be neat. Thanks to these changes and more (including minor achievements for prog…

Mirror's Edge™ Review

Mirror's Edge™ Review

Oh how I've waited for this day to arrive! It has certainly been a long time coming for the iPhone version of EA's free-running title Mirror's Edge to make its appearance, but the wait has certainly been worthwhile. For those not fortunate enough to own an iPad this will be a wholly unique experience to enjoy, with a light and easy to master control system that mirrors the original game's intent to instill a true sense of 'flow' in movement. Faith is manipulated by basic swipes, gestu…

Dodonpachi Resurrection Review

Dodonpachi Resurrection Review

NOTE: This game requires 3rd gen or higher devices (3GS, iPad, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 32/64gb) - CAVE recommends you try the LITE version when available to confirm compatability if you are unsure. As developer CAVE puts it in their description of Dodonpachi Resurrection, this shoot'em-up (shmup) is bullet heaven. But one man's heaven can be another man's hell so perhaps I should point out that this isn't going to appeal to everyone because 'manic' doesn't quite come close to how inte…

Cave Run Review

Cave Run Review

It's deja vu time again and Cave Run by Ravenous Games brings another horizontal platform runner to the ever increasing party of titles. In order to score big you'll need to help your treasure-hunter to collect coins as he attempts to escape the crumbling depths of the cave he's stuck in. And much like others there's no real surprises with the controls, with a simple tap allowing you to jump higher depending on how long you hold down. This does become somewhat critical to keep an eye…

Dead Runner Review

Dead Runner Review

I can't really put my finger on it, but Dead Runner by Distinctive Developments gets my spine tingling and it's hard to work out why it's so effective. Dead Runner's gameplay is (sorry to say it), dead simple. In both of the game's two available modes all you have to do is tilt and avoid solid obstacles blocking your way. In doing this you end up traveling through an endless forest of gnarled trees as you sprint away from the darkness behind you and in to the light beyond. Simple gam…

Super Mega Worm Review

Super Mega Worm Review

My initial impressions while playing Super Mega Worm from Deceased Pixel consisted of saying to myself, 'Oh wow, they totally made Tremors in to a video game!'. For those of you familiar with the classic horror-esque film, this will make a lot of sense, but for those not initiated just be prepared to make a big mess while eating your way through the entirety of humanity. What do I mean by this? Well you get to control a giant worm that is destined to cleanse the world of the human pla…

Donut Ninja - Tappi Bear Review

Donut Ninja - Tappi Bear Review

Donut Ninja is the third in a current series of four available games by Taplay in the 'Tappi Bear' series of mini-games and I thought I'd give you the low-down on at least one of these titles as they're an interesting experience to say the least. All of the games in this series keep things extremely simple, requiring only one to two taps to play and in Donut Ninja it's your job to feed the incoming waves of attacking ninja bears with donuts before they attack. The game essentially fee…

Monster Dash Review

Monster Dash Review

Vampires, Demons and Mummies, oh my! ... oh and Zombies. I guess that didn't work so well, but that's ok because unlike my silly intro Halfbrick studios have made the combination work in their latest outing on the App Store, 'Monster Dash'. The new game is ostensibly another horizontal runner and it's only slightly disappointing after the success of Fruit Ninja to see the studio playing it so safe. With that said, this runner isn't quite your average fare, with various monsters provid…
