Tap Tip Block’em Review

Meet Nick. Nick is getting married in three weeks, and he is stressed out. But it’s not because the wedding planner canceled the flowers or because his tux is too tight. Nick is freaking out because every night his house is attacked by aliens. (more…)

Velocirapture Review

The end is no longer nigh! In fact, it happened about 65 million years ago, when the Dino-God destroyed the bustling society of Dinoworld. Velocirapture lets you relive those dark times. It lets you save the worthy. Best of all, it lets you smite. (more…)

Dead City Plus Review

There’s good news and bad news for the sole survivor of the zombie apocalypse. On the one hand, you’re constantly pursued by ravening undead. On the other, you don’t have to share your ammunition. (more…)

Life Quest Review

Ah, life after high school. Your first real job, that cheap apartment, saving for a big-screen TV, and getting ready to build a mansion so you can show up your supposed friends at your high school reunion– in just five months! Isn’t that what life is all about? It is in Life Quest, a passable time management game that claims to be a ‘quirky simulation.’ Quirky? Definitely. Simulation? Maybe not. (more…)

Bouncy Monster Review

Have you ever bounced a ping pong ball? Do it a few times and you know how the ball will bounce, but it’s still challenging to whack it with a paddle. Ping pong balls move at just the right speed to be entertaining, and it’s no coincidence that the monster in Bouncy Monster moves a lot like a ping pong ball. (more…)

TinyLegends – Crazy Knight Review

Sometimes the first five minutes of a game are the best. That’s the case with TinyLegends – Crazy Knight, which gets off to a cute start but quickly sinks into boring repetition. (more…)

Autumn Dynasty for iPad Review

Some game genres are hard to adapt for touch devices, but Autumn Dynasty is a powerful argument for playing real-time strategy games on a tablet. The simple interface and short list of units are the foundation of an accessible and challenging game. (more…)

Defender Chronicles II: Heroes of Athelia Review

When the original Defender Chronicles was released in 2009, it was a well-done tower defense game with a few twists: you could customize characters as if you were playing an RPG, and enemies advanced up and down levels from a side-view perspective. Defender Chronicles II gives you more characters, more options, and more monsters to fight. Like most sequels, however, it’s more of the same. (more…)

Scotland Yard Review

Hidden movement is a rarity in physical board games, mostly because it’s inconvenient for players to keep track of their location and record their moves. That’s too bad, because as Battleship and other games proved long ago, hunting a hidden opponent is lots of fun. Fortunately, computers do hidden movement well, and that’s given a new lease on life to games like Ravensburger’s Scotland Yard. (more…)

This Could Hurt Review

Platform games are all about following a path while avoiding horrible doom along the way, and This Could Hurt delivers all the doom any player could ask for. If you love dodging buzzsaws, flame jets, and bottomless pits, you’ve come to the right game. (more…)

Punch Hero Review

Nintendo set the standard for casual boxing games back in 1984 with Punch-Out!! — a game that’s still beloved for its simple controls and zany characters. Gamevil’s Punch Hero is cut from the same canvas, but it adds a few twists of its own. (more…)

Reviews

Scarface Review

Licensed games demand competence, not originality. In theory, the license is bringing in an audience that may be unfamiliar with video games, so there’s no shame in playing it safe. That’s the approach Scarface takes, offering a competent Mafia Wars-style crime game that doesn’t have much to offer to gamers. (more…)

Reviews

Nightfall Review

Ever since Dracula met the Wolf Man, vampires and werewolves have had issues. Vampires hold werewolves to be savage and uncouth, while werewolves say vampires are pretentious Eurotrash. Their rivalry is good for gamers, though, and has led to this entertaining card game about supernatural killing machines determined to rip each other apart. (more…)

Amoebattle Review

When you’re a microscopic creature, the world is a big place. There should be room for everybody, right? Shouldn’t peace and harmony prevail? Think again. (more…)

Reviews

On the Wind Review

On the surface, On the Wind sounds like it’s a remake of the critically acclaimed PS3 game Flower. However, these two titles offer an example of how two sets of rules can send the same premise in wildly different directions. (more…)

Tyler Smith is a loser. After quitting his supermarket job in a fit of pique, he finds he can’t get work anywhere else. With no prospects and the rent overdue, his only choice is to pick up the hunting rifle stashed in the corner and embark on a new career as a professional assassin. (more…)

Nightclub Mayhem iPad Review

Last year, 99Games unleashed Prison Mayhem, the grim and gritty Shawshank Redemption of the traditionally fluffy time management genre. Nightclub Mayhem is the follow-up, but don’t expect blood on the dance floor. This game hews closely to a formula of inoffensive gameplay, cute characters and customers who can’t find their mocktails without help. (more…)

You’re the Chicken Mogul! Review

Somewhere out there, a mighty business consultant strides across the land. Brilliant, ruthless, and handsome, he’s the only man who can save the struggling Cock-a-Doodle chicken restaurants. You don’t play as that guy. You play as his inexperienced nephew Danny. But when brilliant Uncle Richie needs someone to impersonate him while he’s recovering from a car crash, you’re it. (more…)

Coco Loco Review

Hot chocolate and marshmallows are so delicious that it’s hard to believe there aren’t more games about them. Fortunately, Chillingo has addressed this embarrassing void with Coco Loco, a cute physics puzzler that makes good use of fluid dynamics. (more…)
