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…)

Parachute Panic Review

Parachute Panic will quickly endear itself to casual and hardcore gamers alike with its quirky sense of humor, unique art style and straightforward gameplay. However, a few holes in its parachute made our interest drop just a bit too quickly.

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…)

Polyhedra Review

The basic concept of Polyhedra is incredibly simple: Hold a finger to the screen to create a shape. The longer you hold it, the larger the shape will grow. Fill at least 66% of the screen with shapes, and you complete the stage. The wrinkle, and it’s only a slight one, is that your shape can be popped if an enemy encounters it while it grows. (more…)

Gangstar: West Coast Hustle Review

You wanna get in on the hustle? OK ese, here’s what you wanna do. Head to this place called the App Store; Gameloft is only asking $6.99 for their latest crime epic, Gangstar. It’s a steal, homie! After that? You’ll get the rest when you boot up the game. Comprende? (more…)

Mini Golf Wacky Worlds Review

Mini Golf Wacky Worlds offers up some incredibly creative courses, colorful graphics and plenty of items to unlock. While it doesn’t quite nail a hole-in-one, this crazy golf experience is definitely hitting under par (for those unfamiliar with golf, that’s a good thing). (more…)

Reviews

Dungeonslayer Review

Inspired by the classic Diablo titles on the PC, Dungeonslayer gives you mobs of enemies to hack to pieces and burn to a crisp. If it did a better job of grabbing your attention early on, this could be a pretty engrossing experience, but the bland artwork and confusing mission objectives make it hard to love. (more…)

Reviews

Cheap Shot: Deep Space Rescue

Like any great sci-fi narrative, the story in Deep Space Rescue really made us ask some tough questions. For example, if all the enemies are clones of the woman we are supposed to save, who kidnapped her and created the clones in the first place? And how will we know which is which? (more…)

NFL 2010 Review

NFL 2010 is a good first effort at a football game on the iPhone. All the teams and players are there, and it looks and sounds as good as you can expect. Despite these feats, it never quite feels like you have full control of what’s happening on the field. (more…)

    Buyer’s Guide: Adventure and Platformer

    Doesn’t navigating the App Store seem like an adventure sometimes, digging through Top 100 charts and recently released lists trying to find something good? How many “lite” editions have you downloaded lately?

    Sure, hunting for gems in the rough can be fun, but we’d like to suggest some better ways to spend your time. How about playing fun new games instead of hunting for them? We know a thing or two about adventure, RPG and platformer titles on the App Store, so take a look at our list of gems and you’ll only need to pick the one that’s right for you. (more…)

    Power Pros Touch Review

    Even though it has limbless characters and fake teams, you might still expect Power Pros Touch to deliver a solid game of baseball. Imagine our surprise when we found batting to be more of a home run derby affair than an actual baseball game, rendering this title pretty dull. (more…)

      Isotope Review

      Isotope takes the simple premise of a twin stick shooter–one virtual joystick on the left of the screen moves the ship, and another on the right fires in the direction pressed–and handles like a dream. These are some of the best virtual controls we’ve used on the touchscreen. (more…)
