Twisted Fates Review

Review Lewis Pugh By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Twisted Fates Review

Every now and then a game crops up that serves as a reminder of how powerful it can be to break up a game in to short, challenging chunks. Those who have played games like N+ or Super Meat Boy will know what I'm talking about and while Twisted Fates by Leuvsion isn't as polished or as challenging as other titles, its unique style of platforming is served well by the bite-sized levels. One thing that fails to escape notice is the cartoonish Manga-inspired visuals featuring well-endowed…

Lyst Review

Review Steel Games, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Lyst Review

While the sheer number of Apps released each day can result in a lot of chaff that only serves to clog up your iDevice, it also presents a unique chance to sift through and find those rare tasty grains that you never expected. Lyst by Steel Games is an arcade puzzler with a unique chemical-based twist that will challenge your dexterity and your ability exploit combination opportunities. There are four basic elements that can be combined, resulting in various effects based on the items…

Burn the Rope Review

Review Big Blue Bubble By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 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…

Invaders World Tour 3 Review

Review Appular By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Invaders World Tour 3 Review

Invaders World Tour 3 by Appular and MeYuMe is yet another dive in to the nostalgia pool of ideas, however this Space Invaders inspired title is packed with modern updates and players can dive in to a quick game to relive the classic days of gaming without giving up the mod-cons we've come to expect in Arcade titles. The basic setup will be familiar to old school gamers, with players being given three shields to hide behind and a ship that can be moved back and forth on the bottom of…

A Moon For The Sky Review

Review Bulkypix By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
A Moon For The Sky Review

A Moon For The Sky by Bulkypix and Egg Ball follows in the wake of previous titles from the publisher like Pix'n Love Rush as a simple, yet amazingly refreshing arcade title that seems far more addictive than it has any right to be. I don't mean the last statement to be an insult as this basic game oozes enough charm to make coming back for more almost reflexive and when all you're doing is bouncing a moon on a trampoline it's hard to pinpoint why you keep hitting 'continue'. The 'moo…

Puzzle Quest 2 Review

Puzzle Quest 2 Review

By now, just about every electronic device capable of doing so has been infected with a three-match game of one kind or another and it's not hard to understand why, because simply put 'it sells'. Puzzle Quest 2 by Infinite Interactive and published by Namco on the App Store takes the already insanely addictive formula of three-match and RPG mechanics from Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords and packages it in a new way that remains just as potent as ever. After selecting one of fo…

Super Stickman Golf Review

Review Noodlecake Studios Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Super Stickman Golf Review

UPDATE: A recent update has added more courses and achievements, but more importantly players can now duke it out in a 2-4 player multiplayer mode on local or online networks (matchmaking performed through Game Center). What was already an amazingly addictive title has squeezed out a little extra fun and is worth grabbing more than ever before. First there was Stick Golf and the verdict was good. Now, there's Super Stick Golf and Noodlecake Games don't just deserve a hearty golf-clap,…

Star Shipping Inc. HD Review

Review Corbomite Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Star Shipping Inc. HD Review

It's always great to see a developer with a sense of humor, especially when it's focused on such a niche area like sci-fi fandom. Star Shipping Inc. focuses on the space-trading common to games like Privateer and Freelancer and shakes it up with a random element to speed things up and to add a challenge to ferrying goods across the universe. The game is entirely menu driven and easy to navigate, with most major actions being available in the center of the screen and additional slides…

Front Runner Review

Review Tactile Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Front Runner Review

From Wario-ware inspired micro-games to addictive Tamagotchi-esque creature simulators, Tactile Entertainment definitely has a pedigree of attempting unique and involving titles. Their latest game 'Front Runner' is no exception and where flashy bullet-hell bonanzas are the norm, this title goes for something a little more off the beaten track.   Players take control of the Front Runner in an attempt to dispense a bit of payback against annoying space 'villains' that seem more…

Mr. Falling Review

Review OF-Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Mr. Falling Review

After playing a games like .AaAaAA!!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity. on my PC, I've been fascinated by games that decide to play around with that sense of vertigo and speed. Mr. Falling by UwinGame is the 3D antithesis to games like Doodle Jump and you'll have to prove your skill at surviving a deadly fall for as long as possible with one of three available cats. Each cat represents a different difficulty level, adding more speed and hazards to avoid on your trip down, however th…

Silverfish Review

Review Chaotic Box By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Silverfish Review

Silverfish by Chaotic Box looks like a twin-stick shooter and feels like a twin-stick shooter, so you'd be forgiven for dismissing it as just another twin-stick shooter... But it's not. With merely one finger you'll dispense destruction and chaos while attempting to either scavenge for morsels of food, bide your time to become the predator and not the prey or to simply attempt to survive against the odds. Instead of mucking around with virtual d-pads, analogue sticks or tilt controls,…

Epic War 3 - War of Heroes Review

Review Artlogicgames By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Epic War 3 - War of Heroes Review

Epic War 3 - War of Heroes by Artlogicgames represented a wild divergence from their previous Flash games in the series, leaving behind a clunky castle defense system that has seen too many clones already. Instead of micro-managing your income, clicking wildly at icons and throwing the occasional spell, Epic War 3 tries to add a bit of strategy while leaving the tedious chore of spawning creatures to the computer. The game's focus is turned away from mere defensive pushes and players…

Stenches: A Zombie Tale of Trenches Review

Review Thunder Game Works By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Stenches: A Zombie Tale of Trenches Review

Over time, Trenches by Thunder Game Works has added features, game modes and even multiplayer to round out its simple, yet addictive trench-warfare gameplay. Stenches: A Zombie Tale of Trenches extends the popular Zombie Horde mode from the original in to its own package and you'll have to face new enemies and make use of a new system to survive the horror. The basic gameplay from Trenches remains the same, with players deploying units on to the field and directing them to various tre…

Doodle Lab101 Review

Review FunTribe By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Doodle Lab101 Review

The 'doodle' in Doodle Lab101 is a bit of a misnomer (at least in App Store terms) and instead of a game that features grid-paper backgrounds with sketch-art sprites you actually get to doodle to solve its whacky physics-based puzzles. It's easy to be overwhelmed by the help text for Doodle Lab101, but all of its concepts are slowly introduced over the 70 currently available levels to make sure you're not completely out of your depth. Your main goal is to deposit specific elements in…

Sushi Boy Review

Review Wefiends, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Sushi Boy Review

Sushi Boy by wefiends is perhaps one of the best examples of how casual games can turn a simple idea in to something just short of an instant classic. As Sushi Boy your task is to catch all the sushi as it drops from the sky, however once you've mastered the basics you'll be able to unlock companions, outfits and new locations to enhance your gameplay. Players can choose between touch or tilt controls to shift around the screen and tilting quickly or double-tapping will perform a quic…
