Le Vamp Review

The most striking thing about Le Vamp is its use of a cute Nosferatu-style vampire in an endless runner. At first glance, we had to check to make sure that this wasn’t a sequel to Nosferatu – Run from the Sun; nope, not related at all. (more…)

Rock Bandits – Adventure Time Review

“Adventure Time! Come on, grab your neck! And don’t stop squeezing until there’s no more breath!” Because passing out would ultimately be more fun than trying to slog your way through this game. (more…)

Sonic Dash Review

When it’s time to put the world’s fastest-running hedgehog in a new game that’s exclusive to iOS, what kind of game do you put him in? That’s right, a jumping game! And once you’ve done that to great critical acclaim, you can then put him into an endless runner, apparently. (more…)

Toy Story: Smash It! Review

While Buzz Lightyear, Woody, and the rest of the Toy Story crew are well-known for their fantastic big-screen adventures out in the world beyond the walls of their home, another aspect we catch glimpses of throughout the films are the adventures they have playing together as actual toys. It is this sort of downtime that forms the foundation of Toy Story: Smash It!, a block-physics puzzle game with a hint of Angry Birds or Boom Blox incorporated into it. (more…)

Major Magnet Review

“Magnets… how do they work?” That’s a question you may be left to ask yourself in Major Magnet, one of the latest puzzle platformers to grace the iOS platform. The premise is fairly simple, as the eponymous Major makes his way towards the villain’s lair after losing his cape, which apparently allows him to fly. Lucky for him, he still has his trusty magnet, which he uses to spin and bounce around the game’s six worlds in pursuit of his goal. (more…)

Cordy 2 Review

For some, platformers are the bane of the App Store, as so many fail to make the transition to the touchscreen very well for one reason or another. Even genre stalwarts such as Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man have made for iffy conversions on iOS at times. Fortunately, for the most part, Cordy 2 gets it right. (more…)

Ride ‘Em Rigby – Regular Show Review

Regular Show is a Cartoon Network program about two friends who work at a park as groundskeepers. One is Rigby, a trouble-stirring raccoon, and the other is an arguably more mature blue jay named Mordecai, and they both tend to either slack or goof off (or perhaps both at once). (more…)

NFL Quarterback 13 Review

NFL Quarterback 13 doesn’t require any in-depth knowledge of football to be enjoyed– which is good, because this writer has only a passing familiarity with the sport. However, the game still has some quirky issues that make the experience flawed simply as a game, regardless of the game’s theme. (more…)

Reviews

Ghostbusters Review

The last time we found ourselves carrying an unlicensed nuclear accelerator on our back– in Ghostbusters: Paranormal Blast– the experience wasn’t all that we hoped it would be. Simply put, busting didn’t make us feel good, which naturally made us wary: Would another Ghostbusters title in the App Store so soon after the last be worth checking out? (more…)

Wheel of Fortune Review

Wheel of Fortune has been around for three decades. To mark the occasion, Sony has released a new game to the App Store to allow fans of the show to celebrate by participating from the comfort of their own homes, or while on the go. (more…)

Reviews

Garfield’s Escape Review

Garfield’s Escape is a game that practically writes itself: It takes a plot that would have worked with either the old or the new cartoon shows and wraps it around a running/ jumping game. Throw in some cutscenes and unlockables with authentic original art from Paws, Inc., and there is plenty to appeal here to Garfield fans or even just children. Unfortunately, the game itself just doesn’t come together very well, and players young and old are likely to feel disappointed in spite of the game’s greater potential. (more…)

Skee-Ball 2 Review

Skee-Ball 2 doesn’t do very much, but what it does do, it does very well. The key question behind whether it’s worth a purchase is whether you value what it does. (more…)

Reviews

AR Defender 2 Review

As the title suggests, AR Defender 2 is basically a tower-defense game with a twist: Using the camera of your iDevice, you can bring the action of the game into your surroundings. However, this doesn’t do much to affect the gameplay, and while a neat flourish to set it apart from other games of the genre, the need to print out or create your own AR tag can make the feature a bit of a hassle. (more…)

Reviews

Disney Super Speedway Review

What could be better than taking the classic kart racing formula pioneered by Mario Kart, then adding the various stars of Disney XD’s biggest cartoons? Well, Mario Kart, for one, or Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing. Or just watching the cartoons on Disney XD. While not a bad game, Disney Super Speedway just does not equal the sum of its parts. (more…)

Reviews

Endless Road Review

Why run when you can drive? That seems to be the premise behind Endless Road, and endless runner that plucks you off your feet and instead puts you behind the wheel of a car. You race down a road without end to avoid the oncoming wave of destruction which threatens to suck up everything behind you. (more…)

Reviews

Spooky Xmas Review

Zombies. It had to be zombies. At first glance, Spooky Xmas looks like your run-of-the-mill tower defense game. You actively defend your samurai character’s dojo from an oncoming horde of the undead who are decidedly filled with holiday cheer. As zombie-related titles go, having them dressed in ugly Christmas sweaters and attacking you from reindeer-drawn sleighs is probably one of the highlights of the entire zombies-in-games tropes. (more…)

Reviews

Mensa Academy Review

One of the last things we ever expected to see come from RPG maven Square Enix was a brain-teasing/ training game, yet here we are with the release of Mensa Academy on iOS. And in case you were expecting to have to calculate the trajectory of a dragon’s flame divided by the strength of your Materia to save the world, it’s nothing at all like that– the Square Enix connection pretty much begins and ends with their logo and the release of a quality (though not perfect) product. (more…)

My Little Pony – Friendship is Magic Review

For many years, My Little Pony seemed to serve as one of Hasbro’s ‘other’ brands, behind the boy toylines of Transformers and G.I. Joe, among others. It survived, but it didn’t seem to thrive beyond the fringes of pop-culture consciousness, much less produce characters as memorable as Optimus Prime, Cobra Commander, or even the short-lived Jem. (more…)

Reviews

Wreck-It Ralph Review

Wreck-It Ralph is a movie about a video game character who, among other things, travels across different video games. As such, it only makes sense then that a video game version of Wreck-It Ralph do something similar, and that’s what Disney has delivered. (more…)

Reviews

Nutty Fluffies Review

Do you ever wonder what happens inside an amusement park after everything is closed up for the Winter? Someone at Ubisoft apparently did, and Nutty Fluffies is the answer. (more…)

Reviews

Twist Pilot Review

Twist Pilot is a unique take on puzzle gaming. You take control of a propeller named Phil, who has apparently listened to a little too much of The Byrds, as he is constantly turn, turn, turning. And it is that constant rotation which provides the challenge of navigating the myriad mazes which comprise the game. (more…)
