Wild West Pinball

Wild West Pinball, iPhone game reviews, iPhone games, iPhone, iPod TouchPinball games in any setting are great fun, so playing Wild West Pinball for the iPhone is always going to provide you with hours of entertainment. Rather unsurprisingly the aim of the game is to get as many points as you can by nudging nodes, bouncing bonuses and generally pelting your ball to within an inch of its life. You get three balls to get the best score possible and the game makes excellent use of the iPhone’s touch screen technology. To launch your ball you simply pull back the coil and release and this sets the game in motion. Read the rest of this entry »


Toobz

Toobz, iPhone, iPhone games, iPhone games reviewToobz pits you and your spanner against the clock as you race to construct an elaborate maze to channel the impeding rush of water about to spoil your lawn. The mechanics of the game are based on the popular Tetris game, which means you have to find the right shaped pipe to connect to another and create a continuous chain of blocks. Unfortunately, the exact type of pipe you need doesn’t just appear and you often have to wade through numerous other shapes until you get the right fitting pipe and when you’re racing against the clock this really puts the pressure on.

Done Drinking

Done Drinking, iPhone, iPhone games, iPhone game review, Review All of the rock none of the roll would be an apt description of Done Drinking. The aim of the game is simple, make the character walk in a straight line. An easy enough task you would assume but once you factor in that your worse for wear friend has hand one too many beers the task takes on a whole new meaning. I’m sure in the past many of you have taken the long a winding round home after a night out on the town and you’ll know that it feels like you need a degree in geometry to keep a moving in a straight line.

Done Drinking, iPhone, iPhone games, iPhone game review, Review

The game is perfectly designed for the iPhone as it utilizes two of its most unique features, namely the touch screen and the in-built accelerometer. To keep your swaying friend on his feet you can either tap either side of the screen to force him in that direction or tilt your iPhone in the direction you wish to move him. Once you’ve mastered the controls your task is to getting the rocking party animal as far as you can in three attempts. The cartoon graphics brilliantly encapsulate what this game is all about: fun. The random hiccups, encouraging “oi” sounds as you prod your man to keep him vertical and the merry grin on his face create an entertaining atmosphere. More importantly, the game is easy to play and frustratingly addictive.

Done Drinking, iPhone, iPhone games, iPhone game review, Review

Done Drinking is a perfect game for the iPhone because it not only makes good use of its groundbreaking technology but it’s a game that requires little effort and can fill those boring moments in the day. Indeed, this game truly is one for the road as you can swagger and sway while on the move. If the only downside is that you miss all the fun of drinking the fun you’ll have playing the game will certainly make up for it. Plus you won’t feel any of the nasty effects of a hangover in the morning.


Copter

Copter, iPhone game review, iPhone games, iPhone, iPod TouchWe love our iPhones, no doubt about it and that’s why I want to issue a note of caution when downloading Copter. Originally developed an internet game played by bored office workers and students this simple game has taken on cult status. If I were to review this game purely on its aesthetics the description would be something that closely resembled a crash landing with a pile of pejoratives falling onto the page. Fortunately, spectacular graphics aren’t what this game is about and what it lacks in style it certainly makes up for in pure gaming fun. Your mission is to pilot a miniature helicopter through what looks like the set of a dodgy 80’s video game and get the furthest distance possible. Read the rest of this entry »

Paper Toss

Paper Toss, iPhone game review, iPhone, iPhone games, Review, A bin, a fan and some waste paper; what could be simpler? Paper Toss encapsulates a whole generation of development and technology. Do I mean that this game is one of most sophisticated of its era? No; far from it. What I do mean though is that Paper Toss has taken a simple game people used to play in their bedrooms or office and turned it into a digital hit. With health and safety laws, an increase in paperless activity in office and general annoyance of those around you, it has become difficult to indulge in a friendly game of waste paper basketball.

Hero of Sparta

Hero of Sparta, Gameloft, iPhone game review, iPhone, iPod TouchHero of Sparta might not be able to emulate the Hollywood blockbuster 300 but by my reckoning it isn’t too far off (hence the 299). Hero of Sparta is like a cross between Streets of Rage and Tomb Raider. Your job is guide a Spartan hero through a 3D world of mythical beasts and demons, all of which have been sent to slice you into tiny pieces. The intermittent movie sequences and 3D world give the game its Tomb Raider feel and the developers have produced a world that well constructed with many realistic features. The flowing water and flags blowing in the breeze are a testament to the attention to detail and work that have gone into the graphics. Read the rest of this entry »
