AVP: Evolution Review

You don’t have to be a fan of the Alien or Predator series of movies to play AVP: Evolution. You might pick up on some story elements here or there if you were a fan, but there’s nothing so earth-shattering that your playing experience will change if you aren’t. To play AVP: Evolution, you just have to be a fan of the Alien and the Predator. You just need to think they’re cool and that controlling one or both of these creatures would be cool. (more…)

Krashlander Review

In Krashlander, alien robots have invaded Earth. For some reason, your best method of attack is to ski across dangerous terrain and body-slam into these invaders. Your main weapon here is speed, and you will need to learn to maneuver, jump, and maintain balance in order to reach your targets. Otherwise, physics will take over, and you’ll only tumble off a cliff. (more…)

Ski Jumping Pro Review

Anyone who has watched a winter Olympics will know the sport of ski jumping. Simply put, the skier races down a slope with a jump at the end, and the skier must execute a perfect jump and land at the bottom. In real life, the skier must overcome obstacles of wind and gravity, maintain his focus and posture, and land gracefully with style. In Ski Jumping Pro, you simply tap on the screen a couple times.

Mercenary Ops Review

It was once said that good artists copy, but great artists steal. If that’s the case, then the developers of Mercenary Ops are certainly good, not great, artists. If a game plays or looks great, that’s only one part of the equation. There is definite value in originality, story, and design. Mercenary Ops may be that litmus test for gamers. Those who want a game with excitement and action will enjoy it, while those looking for something new will find Mercenary Ops to be something else entirely. (more…)

Dingle Dangle Review

Dingle Dangle has two things going for it. First, the game has easy-to-use controls and an easy-to-grasp concept, which makes this a carefree, casual game for all players. Second, this game pushes the cuteness factor. The Dingles are adorable little creatures that will warm your heart, even after you’ve completed the game. (more…)

CraftedBattle Review

In case you may have missed it, there’s this little game called Minecraft floating around out there that people seem to like. As with all things popular, look-alikes were soon to follow. We’ve already seen a few Minecraft clones that work pretty well, while others are clearly just cashing in on the style. CraftedBattle isn’t exactly a clone, since it brings something new to the table. It’s actually a mashup of Minecraft-style world building and some first-person shooter action. (more…)

SWARM! iPad Review

You have to give SWARM! credit for being daring. This game dares to be unoriginal in this new age of pioneering digital content. It also dares to have graphics that make Nintendo 64 games look cutting edge. (more…)

Reviews

Battle of the Bulge iPad Review

Strategy games certainly aren’t for everybody. They can be challenging to learn, difficult to play well, and lengthy to complete. Battle of the Bulge, for iPad, is all of these and more. This is not a game for the casual player or those only slightly interested in strategy games. This is a serious game for serious and historically-minded gamers. Battle of the Bulge sticks slavishly to its historical background, for better or for worse. (more…)

Mutant Fridge Mayhem – Gumball Review

Mutant Fridge Mayhem has a pretty simple concept. Expired jelly has turned all the food in the fridge rancid, mutating it from harmless into monstrous. To combat these expired fruits and veggies, three kids team up to bring order back to the refrigerator. This game takes place in the Gumball universe, featuring characters from the Cartoon Network show. While fans will enjoy seeing Gumball, Darwin, and Anais fighting villainous foodstuffs, gamers unfamiliar with Gumball’s colorful cast will likely find the game equally entertaining. (more…)

Monsters, Inc. Run Review

Monsters, Inc. Run, like the majority of Pixar-related entertainment, is a nice surprise. Movie-related games don’t have the best track record, particularly when they come out around the same time as an upcoming theatrical release. Monsters, Inc. Run, on the other hand, is a game that does not appear to have been rushed. It’s not a commercial masquerading as a game. It’s actually a clever, gorgeous platformer that rekindles our love for the world of Monsters, Inc. (more…)

Minigore 2: Zombies Review

Minigore 2: Zombies doesn’t bother with cinematic sequences or heavily plotted story. This is a game full of guns, swords, and explosions. There’s nothing overly complicated about this title, because all you need to know is which button makes you run and which button makes you shoot. Before we get into the details, let’s make one thing clear: this game is a blast. It’s a twin-stick shooter with simple controls and a lot of content to keep you playing. (more…)

Glass Balance Pro Review

There’s something to be said for simplicity. In a world of gaming where buttons have their own buttons and a tutorial can be a five hour ordeal, simplicity can be a breath of fresh air. Glass Balance Pro certainly does have simplicity. Its controls are nothing more than a simple tap and swipe, and the basics are easy to grasp. While it may not be the game that changes the world of iOS gaming, it certainly could be a nice breather between RPGs and first-person shooters. (more…)

Reviews

Gear Jack Review

Let’s set the record straight from the beginning. If Gear Jack were a ski slope, it would be a black diamond. The casual player might give it a try, but he might end up with a few broken bones despite his optimism. It takes skill, experience, and wisdom to tackle a challenge like Gear Jack without throwing a device or two against the wall in frustration. (more…)

Reviews

Knights of Pen & Paper Review

Knights of Pen & Paper doesn’t pretend that a fantastical world of knights, wizards, and dragons might actually exist. Instead, this game chooses to center on a group of role-players that believe such a world does exist. This tongue-in-cheek iOS game approaches the fantasy game from the other side of the coin, which is the world of Dungeons & Dragons and pen-and-paper adventures. (more…)

Reviews

Monster Warlord Review

Imagine a game that takes place in a world full of cute and interesting monsters. These are monsters you can collect and train for good and evil, or combine into super monsters. With these super powerful monsters, you can challenge other monster collectors and gain gold for your victories. Monster Warlord resembles such a game, except that all of the epic battles are replaced with text and menu systems. Sounds epic, right? (more…)

Reviews

SpinCraft Review

Apparently, even outer space has the “30 minutes or it’s free” rule for pizza delivery. At least, that’s the loose premise of SpinCraft, Bulkypix’s new 3D platformer. You play as Pyp, a down-on-his-luck pizza deliveryman who isn’t too good at his job. From the opening cut scene, we learn that Pyp tends to get sidetracked while delivering pizza, and that is definitely the truth. Your boss sends you off with one pizza to deliver, which will prove whether or not Pyp deserves to keep his space pizza delivery job, and that’s where it all starts. (more…)

King Oddball Ends the World Review

King Oddball may be one of the most unique characters in the pantheon of App Store gaming. He’s a king. He’s a moon, maybe. He wants to end the world by swinging rocks with his tongue at tanks, helicopters, and soldiers. However, the King isn’t the only highlight of this game. King Oddball is a great-looking title with tough physics puzzles, as well as a bit of humor. (more…)

Reviews

Electric Tentacle Review

Electric Tentacle defies description. It’s a game about a floating panda and his other animal friends who are on a constant journey through a wild landscape made up of abstract enclosures that try to trap you. The panda and his friends are on the run from nanobots, purple machines with mouths and sharp teeth. It’s a dark world, but it’s also full of stars. Behind it all, there is the crackling glow of electricity, which gives you the power to do anything. (more…)

Drift Mania Championship 2 Review

With all the racing games available in the App Store, it’s becoming more and more difficult to tell them apart. There are some great titles out there, and then there are the rest. Unfortunately, Drift Mania Championship 2 falls in the ‘rest’ category. It’s a racing game that looks nice, but the actual racing is severely lacking. There is a clear emphasis on drifting in this game, but it can’t make up for a lackluster game. (more…)

Reviews

God of Blades Review

God of Blades is more than just a game about swords. It’s a psychedelic experience reminiscent of dogeared, fantasy paperback novels from the ’70s. The graphics and color scheme are distinct from many games available today, and the same can be said for the gameplay. This isn’t your typical hack-and-slash game. God of Blades plays more like a dance or rhythm title, where you need to swing or parry at exactly the right moment. (more…)

Reviews

JAM: Jets Aliens Missiles Review

You have to appreciate honesty. JAM is everything the title says it is: jets, aliens, and missiles. Unfortunately, it doesn’t offer much more. Sure, jets, aliens, and missiles are awesome, but so are unique level designs, fun weapons, and challenging enemies. (more…)
