Elemental Rage Review

Platformer and adventure gamers just got a new game for their library. Elemental Rage is a well polished adventure game that has taken inspiration from the metroidvania genre. It still strikes its own path instead of cloning any one game, and it succeeds in almost every aspect. (more…)

KillingZone Defense Review

Plants Vs. Zombies has seen a great deal of success, and found its way onto multiple gaming devices. It makes sense, then, that other games would mirror its format. KillingZone Defense is one of those games, but its slow pace and sub-par dialogue make it a far cry from PvZ. (more…)

Reload Review

Gamers who have been to shooting ranges or enjoy carnival games will find Reload a familiar experience. On the other hand, the closest some of us have come to a shooting range is in the slingshot range in Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Reload closes the gap, giving players an enjoyable and somewhat authentic experience on a variety of ranges. (more…)

Neuroshima Hex Puzzle Review

Last year, the board game Neuroshima Hex made its way onto the App Store, with deep strategy and a steep difficulty curve. It is now joined by Neuroshima Hex Puzzle, a game that draws on all of the same mechanics, but provides gameplay through a series of puzzles instead of open battles. (more…)

Double Dragon Review

Many classic arcade games have found a new home on the iOS devices, though few have made the transition as smoothly as Double Dragon. This 1987 side-scrolling action game has known many iterations on many different consoles, and it has now been remade for the iDevice. Thankfully, it’s no Sega-style remake either. (more…)

Egg vs. Chicken Review

If you’ve ever spent time around anyone with philosophical inclinations, your conversations have probably strayed to the chicken and egg quandary at some point. Well, Egg vs. Chicken turns the whole problem on its head, by personifying both eggs and chickens, and pitting them against each other. (more…)

Reviews

Romance of Rome Review

When you think of hidden object games, you might think of classics like Where’s Waldo? or recent casual games like Amazon: Hidden Expedition. Romance of Rome takes a familiar concept one step further, making the experience more multifaceted. (more…)

Reviews

The Flood: Salvation Review

It is always amusing when the lead character in a game is entirely helpless, and if it weren’t for you, the all-powerful player, they would die many a gruesome death. Of course, there are also games like Pocket God, where your character dies gruesome deaths because of you. But that’s a different story. (more…)

Reviews

Carnivores: Ice Age Review

For some of us in the icy grips of winter, the release of Carnivores: Ice Age seems appropriate. This iOS remake of a PC game follows in the footsteps of Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter, with all new settings and beasts. (more…)

Reviews

Pocket Pandemic Review

First of all, this is not the Pandemic Flash game on Kongregate (and other sites) that many people know and love. Nor is it affiliated with it in anything but name. Pocket Pandemic is a game where you spread a disease by throwing your virus across a map, and if that doesn’t sound exciting, that’s because it isn’t. (more…)

Reviews

Road Blaster Review

Revolutionary Concepts has done it again. After their excellent port of the Japanese laserdisc game Cobra Command, they have come out with a port of Road Blaster. This one is a fast-paced driving game from 1985, wherein you play the role of a driver who lost his wife to a cruel gang (which owns fleets of vehicles), and now seeks vengeance at any cost. (more…)

Riven: The Sequel to Myst Review

Any fan of adventure games knows about Myst, and the series it inspired. Its sequel, Riven, is now live on the app store, and it does not disappoint. The game’s beautiful graphics, mysterious puzzles, and soothing ambiance will quickly pull you into its immersive world, and you won’t regret it. (more…)

Reviews

Queen’s Crown Review

Once you enter the wonderful world of RPGs, there are many different styles from which to choose, from personalized games with self-designed characters to specific stories told by pre-designed roles. Queen’s Crown opts for the latter of these options, and puts you into the role of a princess who communicates in emoticons and likes to take her fate into her own hands. (more…)

Reviews

Space Wolves Review

Whenever a great game comes along and sees wild success, the clones inevitably appear to try to snatch some of that success for themselves. These games pay tribute to the original, and often introduce their own spin to the style to give them individual merit. Space Wolves is a clone of the wildly successful Angry Birds, but it really doesn’t live up to the standard that Angry Birds set. (more…)

Reviews

Lord of the Rings: Middle-earth Defense Review

It’s been a few years since The Lord of the Rings swept into movie theaters and through the Academy Awards, wooing fantasy fans everywhere and inspiring a new interest in the classic Tolkien trilogy. Now Glu has released a game to keep that fervor alive with a tower defense spin on the most epic of quests. (more…)

Reviews

Revolt Review

The story of human struggle for survival is classic, especially when there are incredible odds stacked against a sole survivor. Revolt takes place in a post-2012 world– 2012 being the year in which the sun blacked out and society collapsed into chaos. (more…)

Reviews

Wackylands Boss Review

In all of our gaming careers, there inevitably comes a time when we face frustration at an incredibly powerful foe, often with a bit of begrudging awe. Well, now you can put the awe aside and become an enormous, bloodthirsty– and occasionally adorable– boss in Chillingo’s latest game from FairPlay Labs. (more…)

Ballywoo – The Game Sensation of 1932 Review

Before the days of Pinball Wizard and The Who, there was an even earlier version of pinball, called Ballyhoo, that saw the light of day in the 1930s. It was an evolution of bagatelles, which are a few hundred years old, and even lacked the flippers we know so well today. And like so many other retro games, Ballyhoo now has a home on the App Store in the form of Ballywoo – The Game Sensation of 1932. (more…)

Neuroshima Hex Review

Neuroshima Hex is one of those ports that isn’t from another console, but from a real, acclaimed board game. It is based in a post-apocalyptic world filled with an original cast of factions. You can choose to play as or fight against machines, mutants, humans, or gangers, each with their own spin on the range of units available. (more…)

    Retro Educational Games We’d Like To See Ported to the iPhone

    Do you remember when educational PC games ruled the day, and companies like The Learning Company and Knowledge Adventure were big names in the hearts of children? Some of us grew up during those days, when computer labs at school were full of victorious cries from virtual covered wagons and eager minds trying in vain to track down the female criminal who had a penchant for red clothing. (more…)

    Chop Chop Soccer Review

    It’s always heartening when the App Store gets a franchise of its very own, and Chop Chop is quickly becoming one of those franchises. The bite-sized characters debuted in Chop Chop Ninja, and now Gamerizon has taken their style and tossed it into a variety of sports, the latest of which is Chop Chop Soccer. (more…)
