Forget-Me-Not Review

Review GameClub By Andrew Nesvadba, 13 years ago
Forget-Me-Not Review

Some may remember Nyarlu Labs for their somewhat bizarre, but incredibly fun and unique title Magnetic Shaving Derby. I'll give you a moment to let all of the memories to flood back as you remember a disheveled pixel-art face and other various random objects. All good? Forget-Me-Not is the latest from the developer and while the game may look a lot less bizarre, the combination of Pac Man and Rogue-like elements makes for an experience that's hard to put down. Players must control the…

The Blocks Cometh By Halfbot Review

The Blocks Cometh By Halfbot Review

Don't mind the déjà-vu, it's not just you - we've been here before... quite literally; though this time The Blocks Cometh has been released by its original creators from Halfbot. However the developers aren't without their sense of humor and what started out as a relatively simple, yet fun Flash game, has bloomed in to a collaborative work that has partnered up several companies in an effort to create something wonderful. Much like The Incident from late last year, you'l…

Grimm Review

Review GameClub By Andrew Nesvadba, 13 years, 3 months ago
Grimm Review

Grimm by ROBOX Studios is a quirky platformer that places style before gameplay, wrapping itself up in a cloak of macabre black and white Victorian-inspired etchings that are offset by the amusing premise of needing to control a carriage to return a lost baby back to its uncaring parents. The setting is quite bizarre, but charming at the same time and not unlike an abstract children's novel. This is further reinforced by the poetic musings between each level that act as story-bridge b…

Hook Worlds Review

Review GameClub By Andrew Nesvadba, 13 years, 4 months ago
Hook Worlds Review

Rocketcat Games has gained no small amount of fame thanks to introducing gamers to the adventures of the Hook brothers (Jake and Jakob) and quite a few of their friends, however for some the appeal was eventually lost once the brutal later stages of Hook Champ and Super Quick Hook were unlocked. Hook Worlds is the next and possibly final hook-racer (at least for now), however instead of grinding your way through increasingly complex levels, players can dive in to one of up to four uniq…

Aralon: Sword and Shadow HD Review

Review GameClub By Andrew Nesvadba, 13 years, 4 months ago
Aralon: Sword and Shadow HD Review

There are few times I feel I could safely say this at the beginning of a review, but if you're a fan of Western RPGs (in particular titles in the vein of Elder Scrolls), then you really should take the time to pick up Aralon: Sword and Shadow HD by Crescent Moon Games and Galoobeth Games. But, I digress and submit that while there are frayed edges to this comprehensive RPG, the scope and depth of this game goes so far beyond the regular pick up and play titles that it's a small wonder…

Gravity Hook HD Review

Review GameClub By Andrew Nesvadba, 13 years, 8 months ago
Gravity Hook HD Review

Gravity Hook HD by Semi Secret Software is not for the feint of heart. One thing Semi Secret seems to excel at is managing to make a simple concept work perfectly as an addictive title, but unlike Canabalt, you're going to have to work hard for your highscore in this remake of their classic 8-bit Flash original. Your goal is simply to make your way up as high as possible and you achieve this by throwing out hooked claws to gain purchase on various orbs in an attempt to maintain your m…

Chopper 2 Review

Chopper 2 Review

Way back in the 'way back when' the Apple II was host to a neat side-scrolling action title called Choplifter. Over two years ago, this genre saw a revival on the App Store thanks to the Chopper series and now, after a long wait, fans of the original can get their hands on this juicy and surprisingly featured sequel for their iDevice of choice. The basic controls are incredibly simple and intuitive to learn, requiring tilt-based movement to direct your helicopter with precision around…

Plunderland Review

Robbing the high-seas and fighting your way through blockades all in the name of booty is the pirate's dream. You'll have more than your share of both as you plunge in to Plunderland by Johnny Two Shoes and more to boot; set sail for madcap fun as you follow your ghastly ghost captain in to the deadly deeps. Players can take control of their crew through various means, tilting their device to sail back and forth or touching the screen to unleash your ghostly powers. Dragging your fing…

Super QuickHook Review

Review GameClub By Andrew Nesvadba, 13 years, 10 months ago
Super QuickHook Review

Fans of Rocketcat Games will hardly need an introduction to 'Super QuickHook', the true sequel to their immensely popular dungeon-swinging platform title 'Hook Champ', however many small gameplay changes have resulted in this new title feeling more streamlined and remains as utterly addictive as the first title. The basic controls have been left relatively untouched, with players using taps to aim and fire whip-like hooks to speedily swing through the various environments. Rocket Boot…

Cubed Rally Racer Review

Cubed Rally Racer Review

While this may be the second time I've invoked 'RC Pro-Am' in a single week, it's hard to escape the immediate comparison to this classic title and nocanwin's latest release Cubed Rally Racer. Players are put in control of a rally racer and will need to complete randomly generated sprints to unlock even more objects to be used in successive tracks. Control is kept simple and your rally racer can be turned left or right with the use of two large buttons, with acceleration handled by a…

Hook Champ Review

Review GameClub By Damian Chiappara, 14 years, 3 months ago
Hook Champ Review

Hook Champ is one of the latest rope swinging action games to hit the marketplace but this time, you're swinging through dark deep caves in search of lost treasure. You play as Jake T. Hooker, a modern day Indiana Jones as he goes deep into cursed tombs and catacombs in order to retrieve idols and escape as fast as possible. Players run along each level by tapping and holding their finger on the lower half of the screen and they launch their grappling hook by doing the same on the top…

Sway Review

Review GameClub By Andrew Nesvadba, 14 years, 3 months ago
Sway Review

It has to be said, but the main character in Sway by Illusion Labs looks like something directly out of a nightmare. However, this smiling reptilian will lazily swing her way through each level of this physics sim in an attempt to rescue her friends. As you'd imagine, swinging is the main mechanic here and the controls are quite simple in their design. The left and right halves of the screen control the left and right arms of your chosen character (of which there are up to 10 to unloc…
