Sparkle Unleashed Review

A great match-3 shooter combines responsive game mechanics with a visually interesting field of play. Titles like Zuma’s Revenge and Luxor have raised the bar, but Sparkle Unleashed, the third in the Sparkle series by 10tons, just doesn’t measure up.  (more…)

MovieCat 2 Review

Round, squishy felines have been taking up couch space worldwide for decades with their humans, viewing films of all sorts through narrowed, indifferent eyes. MovieCat 2, the follow-up to a popular movie trivia game, puts these Netflix companions front and center in endearing and humorous ways.  (more…)

Fashion Star Designer Review

Fashion design, like mobile gaming, is a multi-billion dollar a year industry. Fashion Star Designer, the sequel to Fashion Star Boutique, does an excellent job of melding these seemingly unrelated interests. In Fashion Star Designer, you can start your own line of fashion and design clothes for a variety of petite fashionistas.  (more…)

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2: Foodimal Frenzy Review

Freemium games have become a multimillion-dollar business, partly by draining lots of money from a small group of people. After the release of freemium movie tie-ins Hotel Transylvania Dash and The Mortal Instruments, Playfirst has moved further into the genre with Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2: Foodimal Frenzy. Cloudy 2 takes advantage of the freemium model by draining money from anyone who wants to play it for more than five minutes at a time.

NCIS: The Game from the TV Show for iPad Review

Of all the hour-long crime dramas on TV right now, NCIS is one of the most action-packed. That should make for a great game, right? Unfortunately, devotees of the television show NCIS will likely be disappointed by the prime-time drama’s foray into the App Store. (more…)

Master of Alchemy Review

Alchemy is more than just turning lead into gold. The ‘science’ of alchemy is instead focused on transformation in all forms. Traditionally, alchemists not only looked for ways of creating material wealth, but of achieving enlightenment and substances that could impart eternal life and other special abilities. Master of Alchemy for the iPhone stays true to that spirit of questing and transformation. (more…)

Flipstones Review

If Tetris and Bejeweled were to meet in a bar and fall in love, what would their babies look like? We like to think they’d be something like Flipstones, a great new puzzle game from PressOk Entertainment. (more…)

We Farm for iPad Review

Backwoods enthusiasts are in luck! Thanks to We Farm, anyone with an iDevice and a little time can now live the life of a virtual redneck. That’s right, that ramshackle house with the uneven roof and tires on the front lawn can now be yours. Piles of buckets are extra, though. (more…)

FarmVille by Zynga Review

Penguins, starfruit trees, and cupcake bushes, along with other more conventional crops and draft animals, can all be found in the hugely popular online Flash game FarmVille. Zynga’s first app for the iPhone brings you most of the FarmVille experience, though it has some trouble competing with the web version. (more…)

Chuzzle Review

Match-3 games are everywhere on the iPhone, letting you move around gems, runes, and now technicolor tribbles. Popcap Games, the company behind the insanely popular Match-3 title Bejeweled, has repeated their success by bringing a perfect port of their oddball PC and online title Chuzzle to the iPhone.

Against the Fire Review

It can be a lot of fun to set your enemies on fire in videogames. Zombies burn nicely, as do vampires and some aliens. In most of the games we’ve played, fire is a weapon, not an opponent. (more…)

Cheap Shot: Lion Pride

Every woman knows it’s not easy to bring home the bacon. But in the game Lion Pride, if you put your mind to it, you can catch that warthog. You are a lioness, an apex predator whose only job is to kill. All you have are your teeth, your claws, and above all, the element of surprise. (more…)

Battle Bears Review

There’s more than one way to kill a teddy bear. At least there is in Battle Bears, a clever shooter from SkyVu Pictures.

You play as Oliver, a foul-mouthed brown teddy bear who has just made off with a wagon full of gold and mystical treasures. You’re being chased by a horde of fluffy pink teddy bears whose sole goal is to hug you to death. ‘Hug me’ they call, over and over again, in a high-pitched voice. (more…)

Cheap Shot: Mr.AahH!

How can you scream when you have no mouth? Where is that background voice coming from, if not him? And what’s with the techno? All excellent questions, for which there are no answers. (more…)

Dragon Portals Review

If you lived in a world where colorful dragons flew through the sky, happy, harmless and beautiful, why would you want to wreck that? Sure, freedom sounds nice, but think about it. Wouldn’t you rather have them hanging around Earth? Or would you help them escape this existence and go somewhere else? Maybe somewhere a bit more dragony? (more…)

Reviews

Art Thief Review

There are many games on the market that can teach people about things like science, language and art, though few use burglary to do so. Art Thief is one of the few titles that encourages learning through the commission of felonies. (more…)

Reviews

Snood Review

Who can resist a game filled with disembodied cartoon heads? Certainly not us. This is part of the reason we like Snood, EA’s latest Match-3 title, so very much. (more…)

4 Elements – Puzzledom Review

When people talk about the end of the world, they focus on things like robots, aliens and global warfare. When it comes to Armageddon, sentient beings (usually mankind) are the prime suspects. 4 Elements – Puzzledom, a Match-3 puzzler from RealArcade and Playrix Entertainment, has a different idea.

Pinball Fantasies Review

We don’t want to date ourselves, but here at Slide to Play many of us fondly remember playing computer games on our Commodore home computers. What began as text based adventures in our dads’ studies turned into well designed, colorful computer games like Pinball Fantasies for the Commodore Amiga. (more…)

Attack of the Dust Bunnies Review

So you want a game that lets you blow off some steam, maybe by giving you an interesting landscape and filling it with things to shoot. Would you rather be shooting fantastical beings from space in epic interstellar battles, mowing down members of rival gangs, or bombing dust bunnies with generic Pine Sol? (more…)
