Robocalypse: Mobile Mayhem Review

Games with a good sense of humor are, as a rule, inherently more fun to play. The makers of Robocalypse seem to understand this concept very well, because they’ve put humor in nearly every aspect of the game. It came as little surprise when we learn that the writers once wrote for Spongebob Squarepants. (more…)

Super Water Bomber Review

Super Water Bomber has a protagonist that many young nerds dream of: A masked kid armed with water balloons, targeting only bullies. A playground hero, in a sense, but with a range of protection much wider than the playground, which you’ll realize as you travel through parks and suburbs to take down bully-rings and more. Sadly, being protected by this hero is probably much more fun than playing as him, which is a disappointing and often frustrating experience. (more…)

Cannons Review

Pirates are a rough lot, constantly searching for treasure, hunting one another, and getting scurvy. However, they’ve enjoyed a cultural resurgence for some time now, and many games have adopted them as their theme. Cannons is one of these games, and though its simple name doesn’t say much about its content, it holds a great deal of puzzling for the crafty pirate at heart. (more…)

Ravensword: The Fallen King Preview

When it comes to role-playing games on any gaming consoles, a few heroic figures stand strong and usually gain a mention. Games like Oblivion and Mass Effect are enjoyed on the next-gen consoles, but so far we’ve lacked an expansive role-playing game on the iDevice besides The Quest, which still left us wanting more. Well, very soon we’ll have a potential contender for top RPG on the App Store, called Ravensword: The Fallen King. (more…)

Tower Attack Review

Finally! Ever since tower defense appeared in its thousandth installment, we’ve been wondering when someone would switch the roles of the players, putting us in the shoes of the beings trying to make it past those towers and their unlimited ammo. This game, named simply Tower Attack, gives us this clever twist on the tower defense genre. (more…)

Match 3D Flick Puzzle Review

3D space is often a difficult concept to master in a game, and it usually has varying degrees of success. Match 3D has the 3D concept at its core, throwing you at what looks like a giant Rubik’s Cube, composed of smaller cubes with different colors and patterns. You can flick, spin, and shake your way through the sides of the cube. If it sounds disorienting already, that’s because it is. (more…)

Cheap Shot: Liberty Boom

America, or rather, ‘˜merica, is a place where we all love baseball, hot dogs, and fireworks, regardless of our individual tastes for those things. We especially love the fireworks, no matter how much asthma they cause or air they pollute, because they are a sign of our freedom! Well, this game epitomizes this nationalistic fervor with its name alone, and it offers a combination of many things Americans love. (more…)

Reviews

Luxor Review

Matching three like-colored objects is a popular category for iDevice games these days, whether the games are ported or brand new. Luxor, a port of a PC game, is a recent addition to this pool, though it arrives with heavy competition in its field and not enough features to put it above the rest. (more…)

Cheap Shot: Gold Keeper

Have you ever worked really hard, and then just as you thought everything was finished, someone came along and ruined it? Dragons and demons live that every day, but we rarely see their side of things in fairy tales, and we rarely see the holier-than-thou peasants getting put in their place. Well, Gold Keeper gives you the other side of the story by putting you in the hooves of a demon who is protecting his gold in the middle of some dark, homey dungeon. (more…)

Reviews

Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor Review

Spiders are one of those things that most of us can’t live with and can’t live without. They do indeed help with the pest control, but they’re gross and many of us are afraid of them. Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor takes those fears head-on and puts you in control of a little spider, snatching up bugs. (more…)

Reviews

Cheap Shot: Aura

Strategy enthusiasts have many ways to satisfy their strategic cravings, from bare bones to the most elaborate. Think KDice Trainer and Mecho Wars. Aura falls somewhere in between those as a game with great strategic flair, but it’s a tad lacking in its presentation. (more…)

Cheap Shot: Cartoon Wars

Kids and the artistically challenged have something in common: stick figures. Cartoon Wars depicts them fighting color cartoon enemies, who have apparently enslaved them. Besides the possible cultural undertones of old technology and culture vs. new, the game is very lighthearted, but disappointing. (more…)

Reviews

Cheap Shot: Proto

2012 is coming up, which is the end of the Mayan calendar, and in many people’s minds the end of the world. Fear of how it will happen is growing, with the most popular theories involving zombies, but aliens are just as possible. Proto predicts (or just imagines) aliens invading in 2081, wanting one thing alone: sourdough bread. The ugly aliens drop down just outside of San Francisco (a little too close to home for some of us at Slide to Play), and while we could get our bakers working, it’s pretty clear that it is OUR sourdough bread, and like our freedom we shall not give it willingly. (more…)

Reviews

Crazy Monkey Spin Review

Whenever anyone is referred to with the preposition The before their name, there’s usually trouble afoot. Okay, The Cheat is an obvious exception, but what about The Overseer? Or The Caretaker? The latter is the villain in Crazy Monkey Spin, and your quest as Momo the monkey is to save all of the animals in the zoo from this crazed robotic zookeeper. (more…)

Reviews

Drop7 Review

Some puzzle fads are so powerful that they go totally rampant, taking the globe by storm. Sudoku is one culprit, spreading from its Japanese homeland across the world. Drop7 could very well be another, even though it makes its home on the iDevice instead of pencil and paper. (more…)

Reviews

Touch KO Review

Most people who don’t have experience with boxing think of Mike Tyson, either with regard to the ear biting or his appearance in The Hangover. Others think of more classic examples like Rocky, and his eighteen movies (play theme song in head now). Touch KO offers a more modern and perhaps realistic take on the sport, with a few drawbacks. (more…)

Reviews

Crazy Choppers Review

Anyone who has been into an arcade has probably seen some version of a chopper shooting game. A great deal of those people have played it. And most of those have become addicted to it, at least for a time, until their three initials are posted on the screen. Well, Crazy Choppers is a new game in this classic genre, made especially for the iDevice. (more…)

Reviews

Iris Story Review

The story of an empire/city/town in danger from evil outside forces which can only be saved by you, a novice/commoner/loner who improves drastically through quests and saves the kingdom, is not uncommon. How the quests are structured and the way the gameplay functions is a different story in itself, though, and that is what usually makes or breaks role-playing games with typical plots. Iris Story offers a basic plot and gameplay which isn’t exactly diverse, making it another disappointing RPG. (more…)

Reviews

Streets of Rage Review

There was a time when games were simpler, both in graphics and gameplay, though they weren’t limited in regards to the joy they gave us and the loyalty we gave in return. Well, even though games have become much more complex, loyalty for the classics lingers, waiting to be either tastefully or painfully revived. However complex things get, there will always be the desire to recover lost treasures. They may need some shining up, though, and Sega has apparently lost its polish. (more…)

Reviews

Earth vs. Moon Review

The far side of the moon is something that used to be kept a deep, dark secret from the world. Part of it never faces us, and this mystery has inspired imaginative things like the title to Gary Larson’s comic, The Far Side. That is, until NASA ‘˜proved’ that the other side of the moon looked just like the one we know. Well, that must have been faked just like the moon landing, because there is apparently an advanced civilization biding their time until 2012, when they will attack, and the developers of Earth vs. Moon know exactly how to prepare us for that– by simulating it. (more…)

Cheap Shot: Super Yum Yum Retro

In Super Yum Yum Retro, you play the role of Leon the Chameleon, guiding him in his quest to recover his children, who he lost in no small part due to his terrible parenting. Super Yum Yum Retro is an iDevice adaptation of Leon’s second adventure, in which the same plot occurs, so it doesn’t really provide any more history or answers about him (for example, why does Leon have custody of these kids?). (more…)
