Flick Kick Football Review

Football (aka soccer) has been on the world’s mind a lot lately. With all of the upsets and dramatic moments that came with the World Cup, even Americans were crowding bars and cheering. Flick Kick Football cuts it down to a simpler version of the sport– one in which players are cardboard. (more…)

Build-a-Lot 2: Town of the Year Review

While the subtitle ‘Town of the Year’ reminded us of the movie Hot Fuzz, one of the first things we noticed about Build-a-Lot 2 was a complete lack of a diabolical Neighborhood Watch Association, which was a little disappointing. (more…)

Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Review

When the word “dinosaur” is spoken, what often comes to mind? Turok, Jurassic Park, or even Dinopark Tycoon for us. Dinosaurs seem to be portrayed as either cute and friendly or ferocious and deadly, and more often than not their portrayals err on the side of ridiculous. Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter– a port from an old PC game– takes a surprisingly more multifaceted approach, but it’s marred by various flaws. (more…)

RollOut Review

Remember Monsters, Inc., the movie where monsters of all shapes and sizes became the friends of little kids everywhere? Well, the protagonist in Roll Out looks like he belongs there, with his plethora of legs, mouth full of fangs, and persistent ability to roll around without care. And on top of that, his name is Wabba. (more…)

Pirate’s Treasure Review

Pirates have enjoyed a cultural resurgence over the past years, right alongside zombies and vampires. We aren’t sure what it is about the traditionally bad-tempered pillagers that is attractive, but we’re hooked right along with the new romanticized version of the mates. Especially with Johnny Depp and Keira Knightley setting the bar. Pirate’s Treasure is a new dual-stick shooter from Chillingo, in which you take the role of a pirate and set off to pillage and plunder. (more…)

FIFA World Cup 2010 Review

Special events like the Olympics and the World Cup draw in a lot of different types of attention from across the world, from waves of tourism to press coverage and themed games. FIFA World Cup is one of those themed games, which unfortunately feels a bit more like it’s just cashing in than standing on its own. (more…)

Tumbledrop Review

Finding a game with the abundance of character that Tumbledrop supplies is a rare thing. Its animation and cheerful demeanor remind us of Rolando or even Katamari, but most impressive is its unique combination of physics, logic, and adorable shapes. (more…)

Assassin’s Creed II Multiplayer Review

Assassin’s Creed II, on consoles, is a sequel that changed the focus of the assassin’s dreamland from a medieval Middle East to Renaissance Italy, putting you in the role of Ezio, running throughout soaring cities like Rome and Florence. The iPhone already saw a platformer version last month, and now Ubisoft has released a multiplayer game with a suspenseful concept. However, it lacks anything close to the stunning graphics of the console version. (more…)

Artist Colony Review

If you never used the rosebud (infinite money) cheat in The Sims, you might have done what Artist Colony has you do: control a group of simulated characters struggling to get by in life. In this case, instead of encouraging your Sims to go out and get mundane jobs to earn money, you control a group of struggling artists primarily dependent on the whims of rich old men who occasionally visit and make offers on your artists’ masterpieces. (more…)

Reviews

Age of Tribes Review

The App Store has been a great platform for new, innovative games, but it’s also a place for old games to find new life. Age of Tribes is similar to the old classic Lemmings, replacing the lemmings with mindless tribespeople who have a disposition toward walking that cannot be overcome, even by fear of death. (more…)

Bejeweled 2 Review

The word “Bejeweled” is probably as recognizable among gamers as the words “Coca-Cola” are around the world. Bejeweled is one of the best Match-3 games ever made, and it has taken the casual gaming crowd by storm ever since its inception, to the point where few mobile game libraries can be found without the presence of Bejeweled.

Cheap Shot: Hangman RSS

People keep up on news in a variety of ways. Some get hooked on the 24-hour news channels and become junkies for Anderson Cooper’s charm. Others turn to parody news shows like the Daily Show or Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me. Hangman RSS gives you yet another way to keep up on news: guessing. Each round of the game is focused on one or two missing words in a headline that you must fill in. (more…)

2012 Zombies Vs. Aliens Review

New releases on the App Store often mirror the hot topics of culture, as we all know quite well. Occasionally, developers come up with the idea of just tossing all of these hot topics together into a singular menagerie, which is exactly what happens with 2012 Zombies vs. Aliens. (more…)

Isaac Newton’s Gravity Review

It’s a commonly known fact that Isaac Newton invented gravity. We’re not sure what life was like before then, but we’re sure it was a bit more unpredictable, and it probably explains things like the Leaning Tower of Pisa, or dinosaurs with tiny arms ruling the world. (more…)

Reviews

Parcel Panic – Post Car Racer 3D Review

You can often judge the success of a game by how many imitations it inspires. By that measure, Crazy Taxi is clearly a success, with Simpsons Road Rage, the taxi minigame in Grand Theft Auto 3, and now Parcel Panic using it as inspiration. In this game, the only twist is that instead of people, you transport boxes, and instead of cities, you drive around one quiet town. (more…)

Reviews

Trenches Review

World War I may be a rather unusual setting for a war game, since attention is most often given over to its bigger, more devastating brother, but Trenches takes this idea and uses it to introduce a combination of path-drawing and tower defense. In fact, the game provides a tower offense type of gameplay, with the towers being soldiers and the offense being the goal of reaching the other side. (more…)

Reviews

Undercroft Review

It is rare on the App Store that we find a worthwhile, extensive role-playing game that keeps us almost too addicted to write a review for it. Zenonia and The Quest come to mind here, and rightfully so, because they both are among the best RPGs currently available on the iPhone. But while Zenonia appealed to a wide audience, Undercroft faces the same issues as The Quest in its limited appeal, for several reasons. (more…)

Reviews

Cocoto Kart Online Review

The iDevice was practically made for racing games with its nifty accelerometer, which gives the sense of driving as we tilt it left and right, more than occasionally causing some shifty glances to come our way in public. But we never really care, because we’re usually enjoying ourselves. Well, you may find yourself cursing when trying to tilt your kart in Cocoto Kart, but luckily its online features will keep you playing happily. (more…)

Real Soccer 2010 Review

It has come to our attention that Gameloft has been busy making clones of successful franchises, from Gangstar to Dungeon Hunter. However, the word “clone” usually has negative connotations, and Gameloft’s games don’t usually deserve it, as is best evidenced by their ability to win STP’s Game of the Month twice in a row. Well, Real Soccer is another great game, even if it is almost identical to FIFA 10. (more…)

FIFA 10 Review

Soccer fans come in many types. Some just know about the major international teams, others know about their own local teams, and still others have knowledge of all the leagues and teams, even down to specific players. FIFA 10 is a game that caters to that last type of fan, as it offers over 570 teams. Luckily, it still appeals to those who don’t know much about the teams but do love the game. Those people just have to use some guesswork when it comes to team choices (favorite logo anyone?). (more…)

Family Guy: Uncensored Review

Family Guy is one of the funniest shows on television, and its sarcastic, sick, and well-timed humor has kept us laughing since its debut. Sadly, there’s not much to laugh about in the new game, which left us sorely disappointed. It seems to us that this is another attempt by people with access to a successful name to cash in on it. Don’t get us wrong– it does offer entertainment, and it has some of the great humor of Family Guy, but it hardly delivers enough content for the current price. (more…)
