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…)

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…)

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…)
