Whacksy Taxi Review

Review Mindstorm Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 10 years, 5 months ago
Whacksy Taxi Review

Whacksy Taxi by Mindstorm Studios is a bogglingly fun title for one simple reason: Who'd have thought that Outrun could become MORE of an Arcade game? In this endless-style racer you'll dodge, jump and fly over traffic on your whirlwind tour of the US, just try not to blow up while nudging cars from the rear. Your Taxi has free reign of three lanes on its high-speed rampage, with various cars, SUVs and trucks blocking your way. Tapping the controls on either side of the screen will ju…

Shadow Candy: SUGAR RUSH! Review

Review POWapp By Andrew Nesvadba, 10 years, 5 months ago
Shadow Candy: SUGAR RUSH! Review

**UPDATE** The new 'Skilled' mode definitely adds a much needed sense of challenge; while the improvements in jumping and movement may only be tiny, however the game is feels easier to control. These changes have definitely brought this game back in line and even thought it's still a generic platformer, it's a change for the better and a huge boon to fans of Shadow Candy. Based on the ongoing comic series 'Shadow Candy' available in the App Store, 'SUGAR RUSH!' is a generic platfor…

Flick Football Review

Review Neon Play By Andrew Nesvadba, 10 years, 5 months ago
Flick Football Review

Flick Football by Neon Play joins other simple endless flick-based physics games with its soccer-based free kick style. Much like its paper-throwing, pigskin kicking and coin-bouncing compatriots there's an art to successfully scoring each goal, but while serious players can duke it out for the high-scores, casual gamers can easily while-away free seconds of their day to occasionally score big and earn bragging rights on Facebook. Basic flicks will kick the ball in the direction you i…

Tap Tap Ninja Review

Review Square Dimension By Andrew Nesvadba, 10 years, 6 months ago
Tap Tap Ninja Review

In the world of Tap Tap Ninja by Square Dimension you'll find yourself sprinting and jumping from platform to platform while avoiding dangerous traps, enemies and environments in order to traverse as far as possible. With two variations of the endless-runner available in this title you could consider it two games for the price of one, but is it worth pulling you away from the many other runner titles available? The gameplay uses a familiar setup, with your character charging across th…

Mr Onions Review

Review Stuart Atkinson By Andrew Nesvadba, 10 years, 6 months ago
Mr Onions Review

Mr Onions is out for a bike ride and needs to get back home with all of his groceries intact, but someone keeps putting all these obstacles in his way! In this interesting physics puzzle platformer by Stuart Atkinson you'll have to help Mr Onion by maintaining your speed and balance to safely jump rivers or even the occasionally stalled vehicle. The tilt controls can be quite sensitive, so some practice is required to come to grips with the game's physics. Notably, in order to gain sp…

RottenCity Review

Review 3Dpaper Co.,Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 10 years, 6 months ago
RottenCity Review

**UPDATE** After a recent patch, RottenCity was given an option to enable D-Pad controls for the game. Movement, aiming and firing feels much smoother and makes it much easier to enjoy the game as you're no longer fighting against your own character. Definitely worth trying if you're after a challenging survival experience. RottenCity by 3Dpaper could easily be an absorbing action-RPG that could devastate your available free time if it wasn't for the game's tragic flaws. Combining a r…

William Tale Review

Review Nebula Soft Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 10 years, 6 months ago
William Tale Review

William Tale (not to be confused with the William Tell tale) is an archery style game from Nebula Soft where you'll find yourself shooting apples off a very patient friend (wait a moment); shooting apples out of a tree (Oh?); and defend your corn from pigs and birds invading your farm (see, definitely not William Tell!). Like so many archery-style games, the controls leave a lot to be desired and minor shifts in your finger resulting in an erroneous shot. Touching the screen initiates…

Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 2 Review

Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 2 Review

Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 2 by Activision and developers Polarbit has improved on what was already a decent, if out-dated Mario Kart style racer, making it a great, fun arcade experience for your iPhone. Players have the option of choosing between tilt or virtual steering controls via the menu and both work fantastically, providing smooth control for each kart. Those after more finesse might prefer the virtual controls, but the tilt controls do make the game far more entertaining to…

Zombie Shock combines elements of castle defense games with an action-oriented control system to create an intensely addictive and challenging experience that almost anyone can enjoy. This particular combination of gameplay elements does present a few problems when it comes to the controls, allowing players to freely roam the s…

Bio Army Review

Review DigiRabi By Andrew Nesvadba, 10 years, 6 months ago
Bio Army Review

Bio-monsters are invading, so it's time to crack out the troops to defend your base. Bio Army by DigiRabi forgoes being weighed down by a well crafted storyline and gets straight in to the action for this fairly standard tower defense title. Various military units acting as 'towers', buildings and traps can by dragged on to the game's fixed grid placements while upgrades are performed by selecting structures to bring up a detailed menu. Each level has various obstacles that prevent pl…

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 10 years, 6 months ago
Phoenix Wright Review

Phoenix Wright for your iPhone? Heck yeah! In keeping up with adapting games for the App Store, CAPCOM have released their iconic adventure series to the iPhone, utilizing a modified version of the Nintendo DS release. Much like the DS version, the game is touch driven through menus though some changes have occurred to make better use of the iPhone's limited screen space. Instead of simple select menus, most require you to hold your finger down to open up and scroll to the various opt…

Pillowfight Girls Review

Review iwin, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 10 years, 6 months ago
Pillowfight Girls Review

In a world where girls must fight each other using pillows as their weapons, you must enter the Pillowfight Championship to prove your superior fighting skills. I couldn't even begin to make something like that up, but the premise doesn't really have to make much sense when Pillowfight Girls by I-play is just a simple excuse to show off a bit of T'N'A on your iDevice. The controls are about as simple as fighting games can get, using a d-pad to move and change your basic attack. A bloc…

Review Pavel Tarabrin By Andrew Nesvadba, 10 years, 6 months ago
Tesla Wars Review

In Tesla Wars by Pavel Tarabrin your aim is to defend your giant Tesla-coil as you zap, explode or slice and dice the incoming stick-figure army. Simple 2D graphics are combined with beautiful special effects and fast-paced gameplay to make this castle-defender an exciting and compelling game to master. Your main weapon for the game is the titular Tesla-coil that can unload a painful dose of electricity, Red Alert style, at your enemies by directly touching them. Enemies can be left h…
