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.

Review: Reversi Reloaded

Ahhh, Reversi; it’s such a simple concept, yet has become so popular. And with Reversi Reloaded, you can now play this classic game on the move with your iPhone or iPad. Before I installed the game, my first concern for it was space – the iPhone does not have a lot to offer in terms of screen space, and when I started my first Reversi game, the squares were indeed quite small. Despite this, however, I had absolutely no trouble selecting the correct boxes… so kudos to Mobivention for making this typical board game work with the iPhone’s limiting factors.

Review: Bunny Shooter

Bunny Shooter, free iPhone game, Angry Birds

Maybe it’s just me, but attacking cute, fluffy, pink rabbits on Bunny Shooter isn’t quite as gratifying as annihilating those patronising pigs on Angry Birds. It just makes me feel bad. They’re bunnies! But once I got past my self-righteous moral concerns and actually started popping some caps, one thing became very clear….

It was an hour later and I hadn’t mowed the lawn, I hadn’t emptied the dishwasher and I hadn’t fed the cats. I looked at the clock and thought, ‘5 more minutes and then I’ll do it’. Naturally I was still sitting there after a further half an hour, murdering adorable bunny rabbits. Occasionally I’d receive texts, but I didn’t have time to reply. Not now. I was busy.

Review: MECAPIX

iPhone shooter games, Massive Finger, MECAPIXMecapix, from Robotalism Games, is an innovative and highly entertaining mash-up of genres. Take some Tetris-like puzzle pieces, add some shooter action, the likes of Galaga, and throw in the pattern recognition found in something like Donkey Kong, and you can begin to envision what to expect in Mecapix. The game is obviously a loving homage to the classics of the 80s; however, like many of those favorites, the difficulty of Mecapix can be unforgiving for those not willing to give it their maximum attention.

Mecapix is a simple concept at its core. Various arrangements of blocks (called Mecas) fall from the top of the screen. The player must draw his or her own block figures (PIXes) at the bottom of the screen to send upwards and combat the falling arrangements. For each block that gets past your defenses, you lose a life. Lose too many lives, and it’s game over. Simple, yes, but Mecapix intensifies the complexity as you progress through the levels.

Review: Angel Bounce

Angle Bounce, iPhone game, Scylla Games

The afterlife has been thrown into disarray with demons and angels scattered about the universe. It is your job, in Angel Bounce, to restore the powers that be to their rightful afterlife locations. Angels and demons both fall from the sky and you, acting as a cloud, choose to bounce the angels back to heaven and allow the demons to fall to the depths of hell. The story line is interesting; basically there has been a cosmic upset and angels and demons have been bounced around. They need to get back to their rightful homes and it is your job to get them there.

Angel Bounce is a pretty basic and easy to navigate game. It has all been seen before and the mechanism is nothing special. You navigate the cloud across the screen to bounce the angels back to heaven, much like many other app store games. The only catch is you must avoid the demons that are also falling from the sky. When you bounce the demons back into heaven they are considered “saved” and will lower your overall score. If you happen to let an angel fall into hell they are considered “condemned” and it also lowers your score. Read the rest of this entry »

Fast and Furious

Fast and Furious, iPhone, iPhone game reviews, iPhone games, iPod TouchRacing games and the iPhone is a match made in heaven. The in-built tilt technology lends itself perfectly to manoeuvring the car as it mimics a steering wheel. Unlike many other racing games the developers of Fast and Furious really seemed to have nailed the interface between the game controls and the iPhone’s accelerometer. There is no ridiculous over steer or need to tilt your iPhone too far in one direction to make the car budge an inch. Sensitivity is often a problem with racing games but Fast and Furious has been perfectly calibrated to provide players with a game that feels realistic but with an element of control in place.
