Today Rushing Ninjas by the guys from Frostware Entertainment, the studio known for The Starchildren and Skycat, rushed into Apple’s App Store for iPhone and iPod Touch. This arcade-like game is the perfect way to test your multitasking skills in ninja style. Rushing Ninjas challenges you to get as many ninjas as possible through the screen without having them chopped into tiny pieces by cool but dangerous creatures like evil dragons. The game has Game Center support for all the leader board and achievement whores among you. Rushing Ninjas can be yours for $0.99.


Idyllic removing gaps between casual and hardcore gamers

Idyllic might sound a bit very idyllic for an iPhone game, even though it sure looks idyllic from the info and first media of the game. The game wants you to put on your jumping shoes to start jumping around in the idyllic world of the game to collect coins that allow you to upgrade. While jumping you need to defeat monsters that are trying to stop you. As you grow stronger, the world starts to evolve, the music idyllically changes and in turn makes the game even more… idyllic. Fatcow Games promises that the game’s concept is fresh and new, and that it should make the boarder that divides casual gamers from hardcore gamers even thinner. The game is due to appear in the App Store on September 22nd for both iOS devices.


Review: Mighty Fin

The creativity behind this game is truly inspirational. Where do people think of such great ideas like this? It’s such a good concept and I wish I had thought of it first… but credit is given where it’s due to Launching Pad Games for an exciting and more importantly FUN game, which is how games on the iPhone should be.

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 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 »
