Card Wars – Adventure Time Review

Card Wars is “kinda stupid” and “for nerds who do not know how life is outside of the nerd universe”– at least, to hear Jake and Finn tell it. But in reality, it– or at least, this video game adaptation of the game featured in the Adventure Time episode of the same name– is kind of awesome, and not as super-complicated as to require two hours to explain. (more…)

Dungeon Keeper Review

A wise man once said “It feels so good to be so bad.” Actually, that was said by perennial ’80s cartoon villain Shredder, and he wasn’t really very wise at all. Still, the man had a point. (more…)

Rhythm Thief & the Paris Caper Review

You might have heard of Rhythm Thief by way of Rhythm Thief and The Emperor’s Treasure for the Nintendo 3DS. If you have, and were in fact a fan of that game, then you might be disappointed to learn that despite having a different title, this is not a sequel to that game. (more…)

Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar Review

The Ultima series is practically legendary among video games, introducing the world to the Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game when World of Warcraft was but a faint glimmer in Blizzard’s eye, with the original game in the franchise dating all the way back to 1981. Now, for the first time ever, Electronic Arts and Mythic Entertainment have brought Richard “Lord British” Garriott’s world of fantasy to iOS– and for free, no less! (more…)

Perfection Review

Perfection is a puzzle game that can be easily summed up as simple, but not simply summed up as easy. The idea is that you are given a randomly-generated mass, and an overlaying shape that you’re meant to “carve” that mass into, as closely as you can and with as few turns as possible. It sounds simple, but the visual overlay of your objective is not placed 1:1 with where the finished carving would be. As a result, a bit of guesswork and estimation is required in order to achieve “perfection,” or at the very least “success.” (more…)

Diner Dash Rush Review

The iOS hit Diner Dash is back, only this time, you’re dealing with the lunch rush. Rather than coming off as a special edition of the original, a la Street Fighter II Turbo, Diner Dash Rush leans a little closer to being a sequel. (more…)

Reviews

Gloomy Hollow Review

Gloomy Hollow is a dungeon crawler-style action role playing game, similar in some respects to titles like Diablo III. It features a visual style, theme, and aesthetic that would probably appeal to fans of Nightmare Before Christmas and Beetlejuice without aping either one. (more…)

SpongeBob Moves In Review

♪ Ohhhh… Who has a city builder that’s on iOS?
SpongeBob SquarePants!
That’s boring and slow and fun as dead fish?
SpongeBob SquarePants! ♪

And so it goes. (more…)

World War Z Review

As you might guess from the title, World War Z is based on the movie of the same name. At this point, however, we’ve yet to see the movie for ourselves, so we can’t really tell you how well it captures the experience depicted on the silver screen. That said, the game is a sort-of-but-not-really first person shooter, as you’ll be seeing everything through the eyes of our protagonist, for better and for worse. If you get motion-sick easily, this game may not be for you. (more…)

Zombie Fish Tank Review

Ah, poor fish– this one in particular. At first, the hero of Zombie Fish Tank gets to be with his love before she’s unceremoniously taken from him. Then he’s captured, experimented upon, and eventually brought back to life as a zombie. And after all that? He winds up in this game. (more…)

Hyper Breaker Turbo Review

Breakout is one of the all-time greats in gaming: It’s simple to get into, and it provides a nice mix of skill and chance, allowing virtually anyone to clear its boards, yet remain engaging and challenging. Hyper Breaker Turbo is a game that takes the basic foundation set by Breakout and attempts to evolve it, though whether this version works or not is up for debate. (more…)

Fangz Review

Fangz has a lot going for it. It’s a side-scrolling beat-‘em-up/shoot-‘em-up starring a man of Peter Griffin-esque proportions and wit who runs around a ruined neighborhood, smashing and shooting vampires of all shapes and sizes. (more…)

Can Knockdown 3 Review

There are numerous games that can be played on both the iPad and smaller iDevices, but they tend to lose something in the transition. We strongly suspect that Can Knockdown 3 is one of those games. (more…)

Reviews

Angry Birds Friends Review

In the greater scope of the gaming world, Angry Birds is looked at– sometimes disdainfully– as being a very “casual” experience. Despite its inviting title, however, Angry Birds Friends is anything but casual; only the best need apply here. (more…)

Reviews

Transformers Legends Review

Transformers Legends is unlike anything we’ve ever played before. From what we can tell, there doesn’t seem to be any particular rhyme or reason to why the card battles work the way they do. You’ll win and lose without having any good idea as to just why–and yet it manages to be fun enough that you might not even care. (more…)

Iron Man 3 – The Official Game Review

I’m Iron Man. You’re Iron Man. We’re all Iron Man in this game, which takes its namesake– and truth be told, we’re not sure how much else, so no intentional spoilers here– from the new summer action movie that hits theatres this Friday and is already being screened in Europe. (more…)

Lumber Jacked Review

Joe the Lumberjack has had his lumber jacked by a bunch of beaver bandits led by a big boss named Bustin. It’s now up to Joe to bash his way to Bustin and bust him but good. (more…)

Reviews

Mighty Dungeons Review

When it comes to the likes of table-top role playing games, players often fall into one of two camps. The first often tends to savor every aspect of it: the ability to explore and interact with the various facets of the world, to act out their character’s every carefully-measured nuance, and choose the most appropriate course of action for each situation. Others just like to watch the world burn, so long as they achieve their goals. (more…)

Nitro Review

“Nitro” seems like a fitting name for the latest game to come from Z2Live– it’s not especially imaginative, but fairly solid. The game puts you behind the wheel of your choice of three vehicles that look as though they were fashioned after penny racers, smart cars, or something in-between. It has a style that is slightly cute without being cutesy. Once you get some practice and initial upgrading done, it’s off to the races. (more…)

Garfield’s Trivia Party Review

“Oh no… Odie spilled coffee on the newspaper again. Can you figure out what’s missing from the comic strips?” Cynics and Garfield critics will no doubt be filling in their own punchlines for that question, which sets up the premise of the game: With part of each strip obscured by coffee, you have to correctly choose one of four answers to score coins. (more…)

Reviews

Nimble Quest Review

Snake is a video game nearly as old as the pastime itself. The objective is simple: Control the eponymous snake as it moves around the playing field, grabbing numbers to increase your length while taking care not to run into the walls or your ever-growing tail, lest you come to a Tron-styled end.
