Amazing Alex Review

Review Rovio Entertainment Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Amazing Alex Review

If you're not already aware of it, this isn't the first time we've seen Amazing Alex on the App Store. Those who owned an iPad around mid last year should be aware of Casey's Contraptions (CC) by Snappy Touch and Mystery Coconut - its Rube Goldberg inspired physics gameplay wasn't new, but it was seriously addictive. The game was subsequently bought out by Rovio, of Angry Birds fame, touched up, and now we have Amazing Alex for the iPhone and iPad. In this iteration you play as Alex,…

Captain Antarctica Review

Review FDG Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Captain Antarctica Review

Taking the name at face-value, I had no idea what to expect from FDG Entertainment's latest acquisition, Captain Antarctica. A shield-slinging polar bear did flash across my mind momentarily, but the reality was just as amusing and if you'll forgive me for saying so, incredibly cute too. There are villainous foes to defeat in the depths of the sea and it's your job as an avenging penguin to strap on a rocket, eat as many fish as you can to power it up and turn yourself in to a living…

Where's My Perry? Review

Review Disney By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Where's My Perry? Review

If I said I watched Phineas and Ferb regularly and was a fan of their antics, I'd be a terrible liar. In fact, at best it could be said that I knew the show existed; that it was produced by Disney; and it has a platypus in it. Where's My Perry? revolves around said mammalian secret-agent as he finds himself stuck in the complex tube-system used to deposit him at his secret headquarters. It's up to you to power-up the shut down system to get him back in action. Before we go any further…

Unstoppable Fist Review

Review Ragtag Studio LLC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Unstoppable Fist Review

When one looks back at the 80s, there's usually a pretty even split between those with fond memories, and those who involuntary shudder at the mere mention of the decade's name. Unstoppable Fist kind of walks this fine line, both paying tribute to, and satirizing the excesses of the 80s action movie, all wrapped up in addictive score attack gameplay. While first you may be bombarded with the catchy chiptune soundtrack and bombastic pixel art, the game has you picking a difficulty befo…

Floralia Review

Review Kensho By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Floralia Review

It can't be just coincidence that the majority of fireworks resemble blooming flowers. After all there's the same breadth of color and the unfurling from a central bud. The only real addition aside from the dizzying heights that fireworks reach are the explosions that start off this reaction. Well it seems that Kensho development thought the same thing when designing their high score game Floralia, a game of flowery fireworks and the combos they create. There are really two parts to h…

Pocket Planes Review

Review NimbleBit LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Pocket Planes Review

There's something already naturally addictive about simulation titles no matter the level of complexity involved in them. From the largest cities to the lowliest of farms - if it requires efficient development, people will find themselves coming back for more. The freemium model has exploited this human weakness, but not all games are created equal and NimbleBit are back on the scene with their latest title, Pocket Planes. Initially, players are handed the reins of a small, but well e…

Temple Run: Brave Review

Review Disney By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Temple Run: Brave Review

When we first reviewed Temple Run by Imangi, we never imagined it would end up exploding in popularity as it did later that year - the delay between release to almost ubiquity was considerable, but it goes to show that a simple, but well executed concept can eventually make its mark. Now the game has been twisted to fit the often infamous task of being a movie tie-in, featuring Merida from Disney Pixar's latest 3D film, Brave. For those familiar with the original game, very little ha…

Dungeon Village Review

Review Kairosoft Co.,Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Dungeon Village Review

Kairosoft have had a knack not only for creating the most addictive sim games in the app store, but for pumping them out with such frequency, that it's a bit dizzying. Unfortunately this means that a lot of their offerings have become rather stale, taking their established formula and plonking it down in a new scenario, with only minimal tweaks to how the game works. Last month Epic Astro Story revitalized their formula, and now Dungeon Village starts the process of refining their new…

Shoot The Zombirds Review

Review Infinite Dreams Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Shoot The Zombirds Review

From creating pottery, to knocking down cans and stopping waves of red and blue jelly monsters, Infinite Dreams easily lives up to their name as they approach a wide variety of games and styles of play from casual to hardcore. Shoot The Zombirds acts as the nightmarish sequel to last year's Shoot The Birds and while much of the basic gameplay is in tact, small tweaks keep the game fresh and place an emphasis on careful, precise shots. In particular, Pumpkin Boy packs far fewer arrows…

Score! Classic Goals Review

Review First Touch By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Score! Classic Goals Review

Even those of you who aren't fans of the closest thing to a world sport we have in football (or soccer as it is also known), should be able to admit the most exciting part of the game is the goals. Now of course this is partly due to them being such a rarity, but it's also due to the combination of skill, strategy, and just the right dash of luck for everything to come together and wow the crowds. Score! Classic Goals is a football game that focuses on recreating the most famous goals…

Little Things® Forever Review

Review KLICKTOCK By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Little Things® Forever Review

Some may remember KLICKTOCK for their recent and delightfully addictive time-waster 'ZONR', but those who own an iPad may remember them nest for something else entirely, 'Little Things'. Now after almost two years the sequel has finally arrived and adds polishes an already fun concept, albeit without adding to the game's basic formula. 'Blasphemy!' I hear you cry, but spare a thought for the iPhone gamer who has only been able to watch while iPad owners have enjoyed one of the best ey…

Reiner Knizia's City of Secrets Pipes Review

Review Aidem Media By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Reiner Knizia's City of Secrets Pipes Review

Reiner Knizia's City of Secrets Pipes is certainly an odd title for a game. The setting falls along the same lines. Moles, an engineer on a royal flying vessel unwittingly crashes the majestic airship and now through his engineering prowess has to remodel all the pipes to fix his mistake. Pipes plays like a new spin on the classic Pipe Dream formula, only without the fear of the ever-present encroaching goo hurrying you along. No, each level here is part puzzle, part high…

Pastry Panic Review

Review Kevin Drew By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Pastry Panic Review

[Pastry Panic was featured as the Mini-Review for the Friday Wrap-Up on the 25th of May, 2012.] Short, sweet and addictive - these are all words you could use to describe various kinds of pastries. These adjectives are similarly applicable to Underground Pixel's cute time-waster Pastry Panic. Featuring two gameplay modes, 'Mad Dash' and 'Toungue Tied', your main objective is to eat and thereby prevent various metal objects from passing across the screen on conveyor belts. In the first…

Airport Scanner Review

Review Kedlin Company By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Airport Scanner Review

Airport security get a bad rap. With the cost of airfare, and the stress of airports, the last thing people want is to wait in a long queue to have their belongings man-handled and their privacy violated. Still, there are those who wish to sneak dangerous things passed the x-ray sensors, and now through the fun of your iPhone and Airport Scanner, you can catch these hooligans out and bring them to justice. Security has to be balanced with efficiency however. For each plane of passenge…

Tiny Plane™ Review

Review Mathieu Roy By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Tiny Plane™ Review

Somewhere along the way games of the 'endless' variety started the lose their way, opting to focus on short, repetitive runs that often feature missions to offset the lack of actual gameplay and, at times, luck required to advance. Tiny Plane by PowPowGames and Chillingo harkens back to a simpler time when endless games played fair by quickly adjusting its challenge to the individual player. Whether you're collecting fruit or coins, in Tiny Plane your objective is to not run out of fu…
