Kid Tripp Review

Kid Tripp doesn’t bother with a story or bonus content, but that’s not to say that it’s a light, fluffy game. Kid Tripp is a hardcore game for players with nerves of steel. It’s an homage to retro platformers of long-gone consoles, and it’s also a proving ground for all those gamers you know who claim to the best. Kid Tripp will separate the veterans from the rookies.

Riptide GP2 Review

Riptide GP2 doesn’t necessarily feel all that different from other racing games for iOS. The game uses your device’s accelerometer to steer your craft, which means you will tilt your device like a steering wheel to steer. Your brakes are just onscreen buttons, and you have access to a boost to help get you in the lead. (more…)

Kamikaze Pigs Review

The war against the Pigs is upon us, and they have us greatly outnumbered. Don’t worry, though. These pigs are more likely to fly into a wall than do any real damage. In Kamikaze Pigs, your enemy may not be all that bright, but it’s still up to you and your lightning-quick reflexes to take them down like dominoes. (more…)

Reviews

Super Paper Pool Review

An interesting aesthetic can go a long way to make a good game memorable. Super Paper Pool is a solid physics puzzler with a Japanese woodblock-inspired art theme. The result is a game that looks as great as it plays, but this game isn’t a simple time waster. (more…)

Reviews

Eden to Green Review

Eden to Green looks like it has it all. Thanks to Unreal Engine, the game has smooth graphics in a three-dimensional environment. To aid you in your battles against the evil machines, you can grow an army of plants to fight for you. On top of that, the game features a deep gallery of rules and strategies to combat the enemy. What Eden to Green doesn’t feature is moderation, meaning an avalanche of content will nearly bury you from the beginning. (more…)

Cover Orange 2 Review

If you’re asking yourself what you do in a game called “Cover Orange,” rest assured you can take the title quite literally. This sequel is a unique puzzler, very much like the original, in which an evil cloud of acid rain is after some friendly oranges. You must figure out a way to cover the oranges up to protect them. In this new installment, the oranges are now travelling across the globe and throughout time, avoiding the dangerous acid rain in different periods of history. (more…)

Despicable Me: Minion Rush Review

It’s hard to dislike a game when it’s filled with adorable, quirky little yellow creatures who only want a banana and some fun. Despicable Me: Minion Rush invites you in with the colorful characters, who you may or may not know from the movie Despicable Me and its upcoming sequel, but knowing these characters’ filmography isn’t a prerequisite for playing. In fact, the game surprisingly relies on good design instead of familiar characters to keep you playing. (more…)

Avengers Alliance Review

Avengers Alliance is the latest title to make the transition from a Facebook game to iOS. You play as the newest agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., the world’s peacekeeping task force, and one of your duties is to accompany the Avengers on their missions. After a strange meteor shower leaves possibly dangerous items scattered throughout New York City, the heroes and villains are out in full force. (more…)

Reviews

GOL:Legend Review

From the very beginning, GOL:Legend is a mystery. The first question any player might have is the meaning of the title. GOL is certainly an acronym for something, but we never find out what. This only sets the tone for the rest of the game, in which you must try your best to figure out what to do. From there, the uncertainty and mystery grow to frustrating heights. (more…)

Poker Night 2 Review

Fans of nerd culture, look no further. Whether you’re the champ who leaves the table with all the chips or the chump who leaves all the chips on the table, this is the gaming experience for you. Poker Night 2 plays like an all-star poker event. It’s a gathering of five video game, movie, and television celebrities, and you get to play poker with them. Even though this game does not feature multiplayer, you’ll feel like you’re playing with friends.  (more…)

Reviews

Gravity Guy 2 Review

From the title, you might assume that Gravity Guy 2 is about gravity, especially if you’ve played the original Gravity Guy. Instead, this sequel is about lifting floors and creating an escape route for the heroic and titular Gravity Guy. Unfortunately, the hero will never actually escape. This is an endless runner, and your best hope is to collect coins and buy power-ups to make your next run even better than your last. (more…)

Daddy Was a Thief Review

Daddy Was a Thief is designed for those who want to pick up a game and play it immediately. The game fills you in on the story with a quick opening sequence: In a comic book-like series of panels, you come to understand that Daddy was fired from his job. Thinking of his wife and child, he dons a mask and heads to the nearest bank. (more…)

Reviews

Arms Cartel Global Review

Social crime games have been popular for a while now, and Arms Cartel Global is the perfect example of the genre. The game focuses heavily on completing tasks to build up your bank, which lets you buy more weapons and a larger army of thugs. While this seems similar to other games we’ve reviewed, the disappointing part is there isn’t a single thing we haven’t seen before. Not a thing. We didn’t notice a new mechanic or feature. It’s just a different paint job on a recycled game. (more…)

Reviews

Wizard Ops Tactics Review

Wizard Ops Tactics takes the asynchronous multiplayer model established by games like Hero Academy and expands it. It features customizable teams of wizards that battle in eerie magical arenas. Like a game of chess, there are more options here can you would initially think. For some, this game might be the perfect challenge. For others, it might require too much of a time investment. (more…)

Reviews

Draw Something 2 Review

Draw Something 2 attempts to make something more than just a game. Sure, everything you loved about the first Draw Something is still here. There are plenty of fun words to draw with a variety of colors and tools, but you can’t play Draw Something 2 in a vacuum. It’s meant to be played with friends. You can play with friends from your contact list or Facebook, or make new friends through the game’s random match option. Either way, the game is laid out more like a Twitter feed than a game menu. Draw Something 2 is creating its own social hub, centered around art and gaming. (more…)

They Need To Be Fed 2 Review

They Need To Be Fed 2 is a next-generation platformer that tosses aside flat worlds and replaces them with small planetoids and gravity. While we’ve seen this style of game before, They Need To Be Fed 2 improves upon the initial concept by focusing on the gameplay and the level design. This game features seven different worlds, each filled with challenging maps and unique obstacles. (more…)

Reviews

Bookworm Heroes Review

Word puzzles could use more kicking, punching, and eye-gouging. At least, this is the philosophy behind Bookworm Heroes, PopCap’s newest free-to-play game in the Bookworm series. Whereas the original Bookworm focused on a single player experience, Bookworm Heroes is an entirely head-to-head game that pits you against random opponents or Facebook friends in asynchronous gameplay. (more…)

R.I.P. Rally Review

If you’ve ever wanted to mow down a swarm of zombies with a muscle car, now is your chance. In R.I.P. Rally, you pick your car, your weapon, and your arena, and try to last as long as possible before you’re overtaken by the living dead. Each wave contains more and stronger zombies. You face off against the traditional feet-draggers at first, which you can easily roll over, but eventually you face exploding zombies, running zombies, and giant zombies. You’ll die eventually, but your goal is to last longer each round. (more…)

Reviews

Solitaire Blitz Review

Solitaire Blitz isn’t the solitaire you might be familiar with. PopCap’s version of the traditional card game removes some of the rules to create a more frantic and strategic mode of play. It also adds in freemium elements and Facebook integration to keep you playing for that high score. (more…)

Reviews

Rolling Hero Review

Rolling Hero flips the concept of a traditional platformer quite literally. Instead of guiding your character from one end of the level to the other by running and jumping across the environment, you control the environment itself. Although you never move your character directly in Rolling Hero, you tilt the world to roll him in the direction you want to go. (more…)

In the third episode of Who Is The Killer, you play as the quintessential detective, investigating the recent murder of an archeologist who may have been on the trail of a major discovery. Each day, you must question suspects and learn as much as you can. Your goal is to accuse the murderer to prevent any further murders. (more…)
