Electric City: The Revolt Review

Electric City is a new animated web series by Tom Hanks and hosted online by Yahoo! that tells the tale of a city in a post-apocalyptic world in which energy– that is to say, electricity– is a valuable resource, as is information. And, as is often the case in dystopian futures, these are things the ruling government seek to control with an iron fist. (more…)

Fix-It Felix, Jr. Review

Wreck-It Ralph is an upcoming Disney movie that follows a “classic” arcade video game villain who is tired of always being the bad guy (“Just because you are bad guy does not mean you are bad… guy!”). Visitors to the official Wreck-It Ralph website have been able to discover and play the “original” or “vintage” arcade game from which he came, Fix-It Felix Jr. (which we figure might be a sequel to Fix-It Felix, but that remains a mystery for now).

Knights of the Round Cable Review

Do you remember that scene in Jim Carrey’s 1996 black comedy, The Cable Guy, where they go to Medieval Times? That was the first thought that popped into our heads when we saw the name ‘Knights of the Round Cable,’ but thankfully, this is nothing like that (despite how much fun debating the historical accuracy of Pepsi might be). (more…)

Reviews

Captain Antarctica Review

Captain Antarctica is the story of a penguin whose wife and kids are kidnapped, leading to his joining forces with a crazy inventor to don a rocket-powered jetpack to allow him to dive deep into the lowest regions of the ocean in order to rescue them. It’s a tale of heroism few can match, but more importantly, it has penguins! Everyone loves penguins, right? We know we sure do! (more…)

Reviews

NecroDefense Review

‘NecroDefense’ sounds a little like a misnomer. In this tower defense game from KONGZHONG Mammoth, you defend structures throughout the land from wave after wave (after wave, after wave) of orcs, who look more like a goblin race than anything dead. However, the game’s story says they come from the gates of Hell, so perhaps they’re dead orcs? (more…)

Pinball Maniacs Review

While video games are still relatively young as a form of entertainment, pinball goes back centuries, with the earliest concepts dating back to the 1700s. The game persists to this day, though its traditional form has become a bit more scarce with the death of arcades. All the while, video game developers are carrying on the tradition by creating their own versions. (more…)

Where’s My Perry? Review

Perry: He’s a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action; he’s a furry little flatfoot who’ll never flinch from a fray. He’s got more than just mad skill; he’s got a beaver tail and a bill. And the women swoon whenever they hear him say… *platypus chatter*. (more…)

Reviews

RayStorm Review

RayStorm, sequel to RayForce, is a shoot-‘˜em-up by Taito that’s been ported to the iPhone from the arcade and PlayStation. It actually has a mildly intricate plot, one certainly more involved than, say, Space Invaders or Galaga, but not in a way that you need to know anything more than to shoot at everything on the screen. (more…)

Reviews

Cuboid Review

Cuboid is a 3D block puzzle game with a rather simple premise: Atop a floating platform comprised of panels, you must deliver a two-panel wide block (the titular ‘Cuboid’) to a hole at the opposite end of the platform, dropping it through to complete the course. (more…)

Bop It Smash Review

‘Bop it… twist it… pull it… flick it…’

If you grew up watching television in the 90’s, then the above commands may be familiar to you from the toy commercials that would frequently air on Fox Kids, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and so on. And if that is the case, then you might think you have an idea of what to expect from Bop It! Smash, a new iPhone game from Chillingo and Hasbro. (more…)

Reviews

Catapult King Review

Slingshot-based physics puzzlers on the iPhone are plentiful, if anything: Angry Birds and Crush the Castle reign among many other derivatives, including licensed fare such as WWE Superstar Slingshot. Each have their own unique quirks, but they all typically amount to using a catapult, slingshot, or other projectile-hurling device to launch ordnance into large structures to crush those who dwell within.

Plague Inc. Review

Plague Inc. is a realistic strategic simulation of what happens if you introduce a new disease into the world, with your goal being not to stop its spreading, but to aid it. Your goal: the complete eradication of all life (well, human life, at least) on Earth. (more…)

Reviews

Webbies Review

Ah, spiders… nothing but trouble, for the most part. If they aren’t selling their marriage to the devil to reboot their lives, they’re turning into stealth helicopters and hunting you down in the woods. Or, in the case of Webbies, they’re helping out a grumpy old wizard who lives in the forest by entangling all of the woodland critters’ food into enchanted webs. (more…)

Reviews

Virtua Tennis Challenge Review

Sega originally created the Virtua franchise as an attempt to make more realistic games through the use of 3D modeling, thus resulting in characters that seemed to move and act more like they would in real life. This led to a number of ‘Virtua’ series, including Virtua Fighter, Virtua Racing, Virtua Cop, Virtua Striker, Virtua On, and Virtua Tennis. (more…)

Reviews

Subway Surfers Review

Subway Surfers is an interesting new game for the iPhone, one which follows the trend of taking the popular ‘run forever’ style of gameplay and offers it in 3D. (more…)

The Bluecoats – North Vs South Review

The Bluecoats – North vs South is a remake of a 1990 strategy video game which depicts the events of the Civil War in a rather light manner. However, those expecting to gain any sort of insight on things such as the economy, politics, or the issue of slavery from the time should probably consider looking elsewhere. (more…)

DreamWorks Dragons: TapDragonDrop Review

When one sees that there is a new iPhone game based on the DreamWorks film How to Train Your Dragon and the upcoming cartoon series Dragons: The Series, there are perhaps certain expectations which come with that: fast action, dynamic aerial maneuvers, and perhaps even a bit of shooting with the creatures’ famed elemental breath. And in the title that has just been released, TapDragonDrop, we get… sheep herding? (more…)

Reviews

Brainsss Review

Oh, look… another zombie game. Yippee. But wait; unlike most other games about slicing, dicing, shooting, blasting, blowing up, beheading, and otherwise turning these hordes of mindless flesh-eaters into ground dead meat, Brainsss actually turns the tables and encourages you to help the zombies sate their hunger by putting you in control of them. So, that’s a refreshing twist that helps set the game apart from others following the craze… at least, for the time being. (more…)

Bounty Bots Review

Bounty Bots is a game that combines our past with our future by inserting robots into the Wild– er, “Welded” West. It’s a good, and even proven concept (see: Tin Star for Super NES), but does it manage to come together here? (more…)

Reviews

Saving Private Sheep 2 Review

One of these days, the market for slingshot/puzzle/physics games is going to reach complete and total saturation, and even the angriest of birds won’t be able to turn any heads. Until that day comes, we will continue to see derivatives such as Saving Private Sheep 2, but as long as they continue to offer some unique takes on the idea as this one does, then maybe– just maybe– things will be all right for a little bit longer. (more…)

Illusia 2 Review

Illusia 2 is, as the title implies, the sequel to the 2010 action-RPG title Illusia from Gamevil. And, as is the case with many sequels, your desire to play this one may largely hinge on just how hungry for more the first one left you. (more…)
