Superfrog HD Review

Review Team17 Digital Limited By Alex Beech, 8 years, 7 months ago
Superfrog HD Review

Some things - including old and beloved games - are often better left in the past. It isn't that these games were rubbish when they were originally made, rather gaming’s constantly evolving nature leaves many games feeling like relics. Team 17’s Superfrog HD is a perfect example of this. The problems span issues with both the original 1993 Amiga release of Superfrog, and this new HD remake. Take the controls. Not one of the three interface options provide a decent re…

Digital edition of classic board game Talisman receives multiplayer update

Based on Games Workshops's Talisman board game, Talisman Prologue HD came to the App Store nearly a year ago. Now, it has finally received its long promised multiplayer update, allowing you to quest with friends locally or online.

With 10 different characters choose from, each with their own strengths and alignments, playing with friends ensures almost endless ways for the game's 50 scenarios to unfold.

Tiny Thief gets magical new Bewitched chapter in latest update

Cutesy point-and-click adventure game Tiny Thief has just received an update which gives you access to a brand new chapter. Titled Bewitched, Tiny Thief's new level sees the King kidnapped by the Wicked Witch. Taking control of the pint-sized pilferer, it is your task to rescue him from her evil clutches. You can only fight fire with fire, however, so this episode has the little tea-leaf turning to the dark arts in order to fight off the witch’s spells. We really enjoyed Tiny Thief’s mix of platform and adventure elements. Its charming art style and clever puzzles earned it a strong recommendation, despite its relatively ease and brevity of the six original adventur…

Collect 1,000 coins in the Angry Birds Star Wars II Galactic Giveaway

Angry Birds Star Wars II has just received the new Galactic Giveaway update, scattering 1,000 coins of in-game currency throughout the game.

The inclusion of a collectable currency actually solves one of the few complaints we had about Angry Birds Star Wars II, when we reviewed it last year, by easing its reliance on in-app purchases.
