Bop It! Review

When it comes to reaction games, one comes to mind before any other: Bop It! These toys require you to quickly and correctly perform whatever action you’re told, and they’re fond childhood memories for many. However, one of the physical game’s issues was that it wore out over time. This might be a good reason to own a digital remake for your iPhone, but do the touchscreen controls allow for quick enough response times? (more…)

Infinity Field iPad Review

People often look down on clones for their lack of originality. This is a shame, because sometimes clones are better than the games they’re inspired by. This is the case with Infinity Field, which obviously pulls more than just inspiration from Geometry Wars. However, Infinity Field is a much more entertaining and well-rounded package than Geometry Wars: Touch. (more…)

    Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden and Devil May Cry 4 Refrain may be in the spotlight this week, but that doesn’t mean that indie developers are slumping. Here are some of the smaller games you might have missed this past week. (more…)

      Stylish Dash Review

      We see new run ‘n jump games daily. Games such as Canabalt, Monster Dash, and Hook Worlds stand out from the pack, but for the most part new entries are stale rehashes. Not Stylish Dash. With this game, you can run and jump to your heart’s content, all while being fashionable. (more…)

      Flick Golf! Review

      Flick Golf is more like target practice than it is a leisurely pastime for retired folks and business big-wigs. The focus here isn’t on playing a full round of golf but instead flicking a golf ball as close to the hole as possible with a single flick. This is quite fun until you notice that there’s no difference between the golf courses included in the game. (more…)

      GeoSpin Review

      As Destructoid’s Jim Sterling recently stated in his weekly Jimquisition video feature, ‘Fun is paramount.’ GeoSpin may be full of colorful eye candy and a 3D spin on color/shape matching, it isn’t fun to play for more than five minutes. After that, you risk your hand cramping. (more…)

      Tiki Towers 2 Review

      The following describes our experience with Tiki Towers 2: We created a tower on the ground and a small bridge near the exit. Our monkeys climbed up the initial tower fine, but failed to cross the bridge. So we fixed the bridge, leaving our tower untouched. In test #2, all our monkeys jumped on one bamboo stick, snapping it and causing the entire tower to fall. On test #3, with the tower still untouched, the monkeys ignored it altogether. Simply put, it seems that these monkeys don’t know what they’re doing in Tiki Towers 2. (more…)

      They Need To Be Fed Review

      They Need To Be Fed is actually quite depressing. In the game, you’re essentially moving your little person through treacherous levels just so he (or she) can be eaten by a sludge monster at the end. Yet the stylish graphics and excellent gameplay make you completely forget about the little person’s inevitable fate. The whole idea is twisted but we don’t care and you shouldn’t either. This is a gravity platformer worth gobbling up. (more…)

      Ramps Review

      The best puzzle games on the iPhone are both simplistic and original. Ramps has those bases covered, plus it adds a layer of polish that makes it nearly irresistible. (more…)

      Block Rogue Review

      Sokoban games– games where you push boxes around to clear a path from the beginning of a level to the end– are fun, but rarely does one stand out from the rest. In fact, we can’t recall the last one that wasn’t a collection of puzzles selected through a menu system. Block Rogue is different. Not only does it lack a home base menu, but once you sink your teeth into Block Rogue’s story mode, you’ll be hard-pressed to put the game down. (more…)

      Clumsy Bob Review

      Clumsy Bob is proportionally wrong. In Bob’s world, this elephant can swiftly bounce on clouds, and rats effortlessly swallow him whole. But really, Bob isn’t even all that clumsy. He’s just boring. (more…)

      Evac Review

      Pac-Man and his many clones are commonplace in gaming, so you might be quick to shrug off Evac. Don’t. While you might still be picking up pellets along the way, a large variety of puzzles, enemies and power-ups keep things very interesting as you progress through the levels in Evac. (more…)

      Trouble in Tin Town Review

      Trouble in Tin Town takes Toy Story, separates the toys into factions, and sets them at war against each other for a variety of silly reasons. In fact, it has the same sense of humor found in Pixar’s classic franchise. Although we were hoping for multiplayer and skirmish options, the three campaigns currently available are highly enjoyable.

      MaXplosion Review

      In MaXplosion, you play as a little devil named Max who uses explosions to propel himself through levels instead jumping. This may sound like ‘Splosion Man on Xbox Live Arcade, and that’s because it practically is, only in your pocket. (more…)

        What The Mac App Store Means For iOS Games

        SillyBandz Review

        Every generation has its odd collectable phenomenon, and for kids today, it’s SillyBandz. Kids can’t get enough of these rubber bands crimped and crafted into a variety of shapes. This iPhone game, which is basically Angry Birds with SillyBandz, makes perfect use of the brand and even adds enough depth to broaden its appeal to older gamers. (more…)

        Papa Sangre Review

        “Unique” is a word that often gets thrown around when a game does something different. However, very few games give you a new experience like Papa Sangre. In fact, it drops the entire graphical aspect out of videogames in favor of a purely audio-based experience. While this part of the game is extremely immersive, the gameplay is uninteresting and frustrating. (more…)

        Clue: Secrets & Spies – A Hidden Object Game iPad Review

        After playing (and loving) Clue on the iPhone we were excited for EA to bring us more secrets to uncover from the Clue world. So you can imagine our delight (and then disappointment) with their Clue offering on the iPad. This hidden object game is decent, but it lacks coherent cases or any relation to the Clue franchise.
