Trump Tycoon Review

Donald Trump is used to being in charge. As such, you never really expect to be in the position of critiquing “the boss” himself, yet that’s where we found ourselves when Trump Tycoon made its way to the App Store. As much as we’d love to turn the tables and really put The Donald in his place, we’ve got to give credit where it’s due, because Trump Tycoon is a fun little diversion that brings no shame to his empire.

Cheap Shot: Blockoban

Trying to complete a difficult level of Blockoban can be about as pleasing to the cranium as getting bashed by a bag of bricks. That’s not to say the game is unfair, it just requires brainpower, and ours feel like mush from playing too many zombie games. Luckily, this puzzler is paced just right, easing you in with 100 free levels that will likely get you hooked. (more…)

Battleship Review

Battleship, as most people remember, is a pretty simple board game. You call out a location on the enemy’s grid, and if they have a ship in that area you mark the spot and wait for them to try to do the same. This classic back-and-forth has been faithfully brought to the iPhone, and while that’s not what we would consider an impressive feat, it’s still a lot of fun. (more…)

Fallen EP-1 Review

Fallen shows great potential as a survival horror series on the iPhone, but Episode 1 raises more questions than it answers, and the short experience doesn’t quite leave you desperate for more. (more…)

Mr. Mahjong Touch Review

A combination of four Mr. Mahjong games all rolled into one, you’ll get plenty of tile layouts for your money here, and the option to double that amount via in-app purchases is a nice touch. Just don’t expect anything more than some solid mahjong. (more…)

Cheap Shot: Aves

Aves is a strange little game that fails to capitalize on its clever use of directional sounds. You’ll hear the haunting cries of a birdlike creature, and although you’re stationary, you’ll be able to tilt the screen up, down, and to the sides to try to locate the animal. (more…)

Super KO Boxing 2 Review

The first thing you’ll notice about Super KO Boxing 2 is that it has character. And characters! 12 of them, to be precise, although a few are just variations on the same character (Gip the farmer and Bigger Gip the Viking being examples). Although they’re pretty stereotypical, each character is animated in great detail, and bobbing and weaving as you slug away is quite satisfying. (more…)

Above and Beyond Air Combat Review

You can always tell when something looks good, but you never know how it’s going to handle until you actually get it home. Luckily, that’s not a problem with Above and Beyond Air Combat, and you can tell a lot of work has gone into making sure the flight controls back up those glitzy screenshots. (more…)

geoDefense Swarm Review

geoDefense Swarm is an open-space, maze-based followup to the original geoDefense, a hardcore tower defense game that sparked a “love it or hate it” relationship. If you enjoyed that game, you’ll love this one, and if you didn’t, well, Swarm won’t do anything to change your mind. (more…)

Hunting Unlimited 2010 Review

If you just went by the stat sheet, Hunting Unlimited 2010 would be a sure shot, right between the eyes. With hunting available in all 50 states, there should be plenty of variety to keep you blasting away for ages. In reality though, this shooter is a bit limited. (more…)
