Sid Meier's Ace Patrol iPad Review

Review 2K By Dave Flodine, 10 years, 8 months ago
Sid Meier's Ace Patrol iPad Review

Sid Meier's Ace Patrol is the latest experiment from the acclaimed creator of the Civilization franchise. It's a game that echoes of the combat changes made to the series in Civilization V. Thrown into World War I, you take to the skies as a flying ace. It's up to you to master your aircraft: changing altitude, rolling, banking, and blasting your enemies until they burst into flames. However, these dogfights play out not in real time, but as a turn based experience on a hexagonal grid.…

Stay Alight HD iPad Review

Review Wyse Games LTD By Dave Flodine, 10 years, 8 months ago
Stay Alight HD iPad Review

Remember the years immediately after Angry Birds was released? You know: when almost every other game was a physics-flinger? We guess it's been a while since then, as playing a game like Stay Alight - which takes the mechanics that Angry Birds popularised and wraps them up in creepy yet beautiful world - is almost a novelty. The question is, can excellent presentation make up for all-too familiar gameplay? Stay Alight comes with an environmental message. Pollution is the source of thi…

Pinball Rocks HD iPad Review

Review Sony Music Entertainment By James Gilmour, 10 years, 8 months ago
Pinball Rocks HD iPad Review

Pinball Rocks HD is an odd franchise. On the surface, it's a free-to-play pinball title, featuring a selection of purchasable rock 'n roll-themed tables. However, browse through the song selection menu, and you discover the trappings of a music game, one which is keen for you to shell out cash for extra tunes. In actual fact, the expandable soundtrack is just that: a soundtrack. The only way music impacts gameplay is thematically. While the basic free-to-play table is dressed in gener…

Review GameClub By Dave Flodine, 10 years, 9 months ago
Frozen Synapse iPad Review

What is a gamer ideally looking for when they're in the market for a strategy game? Are they looking for a lengthy campaign complete with engaging narrative?

Strategy & Tactics: World War II iPad Review

Strategy & Tactics: World War II iPad Review

Gamers who typically enjoy strategy titles invariably also enjoy the challenge that comes from seeing a mountain-sized burden of knowledge and conquering it to become masters of their virtual domain. Strategy & Tactics: World War II was once tied to the Hearts of Iron franchise - a series some strategy fans should recognize - and while the mobile title reduces the complexity significantly, it's no less opaque in its mechanics. In other words, be prepared to fail, and fail often as…

Grow Dammit! iPad Review

Review Poio AS By Andrew Nesvadba, 10 years, 11 months ago
Grow Dammit! iPad Review

Editor's Note: We apologize for any confusion - Grow Dammit! has been given a rating of 3/5 on our system (3.4 actual) and did not intend for a '0/5' to be showing. Once again, the title is very competent and we can only hope it gets the attention it deserves! I find it surprising that despite there being almost a three year period since Helsing's Fire was released on the App Store, few (if any) developers have tried to replicate its light and shadow puzzle mechanics. Penumbear manage…

Wonderputt iPad Review

Review GameClub By Andrew Nesvadba, 11 years, 5 months ago
Wonderputt iPad Review

What do you get when you combine a funky, vibrant isometric stage with toads, submarines, volcanoes, and Stonehenge? The answer, cryptically, is the world of Wonderputt by Damp Gnat. It's in this world that you'll attempt to slingshot a ball in to a hole, hopefully picking up points along the way, but more importantly hopefully to have fun. Playing the game couldn't be easier as you hold down on the ball and drag away from it, slingshot-style, letting go once you're happy with your ai…

King's Bounty: Legions iPad Review

Review NIVAL, INC. By Andrew Nesvadba, 11 years, 6 months ago
King's Bounty: Legions iPad Review

While it's hard to complain about the price of freemium games, the content is often questionable and reliant on gating players towards its paid-for features, arguably by devious means. There are many exceptions to many rules and King's Bounty: Legions is just such a game. Either playable on the PC through Facebook or via iOS on your iPad, it's a scaled down version of the popular turn-based tactical title that retains the combat and trades resource management for crafting and 'energy'.…

Magic 2013 iPad Review

Review Wizards of the Coast By Andrew Nesvadba, 11 years, 7 months ago
Magic 2013 iPad Review

I feel I would have to officially hand in my 'nerd card' if I ever lost the urge to want to play a casual game of Magic: The Gathering with my friends. Sure, some people are going to invest themselves more in the collectable card game than others, but all it takes is a pre-made deck and players looking to have fun and you'll find that the evening gleefully melts away. Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 by Stainless Games is the first installment of Wizards of the Coast's popular CCG to m…

Aurora Feint 3 iPad Review

Review Openfeint Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 13 years, 10 months ago
Aurora Feint 3 iPad Review

If your idea of fun involves trudging around and getting involved in random match-3 based puzzles, then you might find Aurora Feint 3 to be right up your alley. That is - of course - only if that's all you're interested in. As a continuation of their popular series and Danielle Cassley and Jason Citron's first release for the iPad, Aurora Feint 3's beauty only goes skin deep. Much like the previous titles, battling opponents is performed using their unique match-3 system. Tiles can be…
