CrossRoads Review

Review FABULAPPS By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
CrossRoads Review

Sure... Navigating planes to various landing strips is easy enough, especially when you have all of that free space to move around in. So perhaps you're after something a bit more taxing on your braincells, perhaps with a few hazards mixed in, because you're just that hardcore. CrossRoads eschews this flying around nonsense and keeps you stuck to the terra firma as you navigate vehicles of all kinds to their destination. To be fair, regardless of whether you're in the air or on the gr…

Monster Mayhem Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Monster Mayhem Review

Zombies are the least of your problems as the Gate Keeper of a graveyard. In Monster Mayhem by Chillingo you'll face the creatures of the night and their imposingly huge bosses while dispensing round after round of ammunition to stop them from breaking out of your graveyard. As a weapon-based castle-defense game you're given a broad selection of guns, explosives and even a melee weapon to fend off everything from blobs of slime to Asian hopping zombies. But this is no easy feat to pul…

Propaganda Lander Review

Review SMASHWORX, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Propaganda Lander Review

Propaganda Lander is a bold first title for developer SMASHWORKX on the iPhone with its mix of arcade-style Lander gameplay and amusing, tongue-in-cheek storyline. You'll follow the story of an alien that's mistreated at the hands of the ego-maniacal 'Rickster' and forced to suck up native inhabitants of each planet you visit to fleece them for all their cash. Propaganda Lander's controls are smooth and easy to understand, but will take some adjustment to feel completely comfort…

The Glowing Void Review

Review Assyria Game Studio By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
The Glowing Void Review

The Glowing Void by Assyria Game Studio is an interesting spin on the classic arcade game Qix with players being tasked to fill the screen as much as possible while avoiding deadly bouncing balls. It's a basic premise that's given a great twist by allowing players to also flip their iPhone to change the gravity, potentially trapping the bouncing balls for bigger bonuses. 'Filler' mode requires players to fill up at least 70% of the screen, much like Qix and its variants. Touching and…

Sudoku 3D Review

Sudoku 3D Review

It was only a matter of time, but Sudoku has finally hit the third-dimension. 3-Duko by Gold Brothers Entertainment doesn't attempt to reinvent the wheel by creating yet another plain Sudoku game for the App Store, but rather they've created an amazingly addictive variant that places the game's nine grids on to a cube that you can spin and solve. In a traditional game of Sudoku, players must fill a grid using logic to ensure that the numbers one through nine aren't repeated in each sq…

Fruit Ninja Review

Review Halfbrick Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Fruit Ninja Review

UPDATE: The constant support and updates from Halfbrick for Fruit Ninja has been nothing short of spectacular and over time this title has grown from a fun time waster to something you can share with friends either by sniping high scores or by challenging them directly online with a multiplayer mode. Furthermore the addition of an 'Arcade' mode pits players against the clock with powerful power-ups that will test their slicing skills. Fruit Ninja just gets better and better over time a…

Connext Review

Review Josh Nadelberg By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Connext Review

If you owned a personal computer in the early 90s you might just remember a good old classic like Pipe Mania (also known as Pipe Dreams). This puzzler required players to lay down a path of pipes to reach a goal, sometimes with hilariously convoluted results. Connext by Josh Nadelberg is a game with roots in Pipe Mania and is just as addictive as ever. Players are given a large hexagonal grid to lay out the tiles randomly assigned to them. The field can be dragged around or zoomed in…

Flight Control HD iPad Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Flight Control HD iPad Review

If you've not played Flight Control by Firemint, then you might be missing out on a neat product that helped to define how line-drawing management games should feel. Thanks to the larger screen of the iPad, mastering this management game couldn't be easier and there's even a few new features to keep things interesting. For those not familiar with the gameplay, Flight Control throws you in the place of a air-traffic controller with several landing strips to manage. As aircraft enter th…

Stickbound FREE! Review

Review Gamenauts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Stickbound FREE! Review

Stickbound by Gamenauts is a tough nut to crack. Using a completely unique style of horizontal endless gameplay based on pole-vaulting your way across surreal landscapes, it's simultaneously one of the most frustrating, yet positively addictive games to play. All that you require to make your way forward is your wits and well timed taps. By tapping on the screen you extend a pole from your character to the ground, pushing yourself further away. Careful timing can spring you high up or…

Monster Crush - Demolition Review

Review 628 Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
Monster Crush - Demolition Review

We've all seen physics simulators used in a slew of games, but few have gone quite so far as Monster Crush by 628 Games. Demolishing buildings and crushing enemies might make this sound like another game like Angry Birds, but for the first time buildings and material are given an almost complete set of destructible properties that you'll need to take full advantage of. As the title suggests the main aim of the game is to crush the bad guys, in this case a race of aliens. To pull this…

ABOVE Review

Review Axolot By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 6 months ago
ABOVE Review

Simplicity in game design can work. It's stating the obvious, but it's worth remembering when some games stack on feature after feature to make a basic idea look better. ABOVE by Axolot is another take on the endless vertical gameplay that combines simple gameplay with amazing artwork for a game that's sublime to enjoy. On your endless quest to the stars the only control you require is a simple tap and hold to jump. The longer you hold, the higher you jump. The uncomplicated scheme re…

Chop Chop Runner Review

Review Gamerizon By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 7 months ago
Chop Chop Runner Review

Chop Chop Runner is the latest in the Chop Chop series from Gamerizon and has a lot to live up to after their first release, Ninja. Once again the defining aspect of this series seems to be great single-touch controls that keep gameplay fast while intuitively allowing players to carve up the screen in typical ninja-fashion. If you've played popular running games like Canabalt then you'll be able to jump straight in. Gameplay is quick and addictive - a true hallmark of the genre - once…

Artilect Pro Review

Review Yuri Brigance By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 7 months ago
Artilect Pro Review

Artilect by Atomic Cactus is a puzzle game in which you take turns against a human or AI controlled opponent, trying to change the colour of orbs to reach your opponent's goal. It's also very difficult as the AI is brutal even on the early stages. What then is it, that makes this game so hard to put down? Control is all touch based. Each level consists of green orbs between the two goals, with the game starting in the middle. Upon touching a green orb, you change it to your colour, dr…
