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 »


Lemonade Tycoon

Lemonade Tycoon, iPhone, iPhone game review, iPhone games, Review, Make some lemonade. Follow in the footsteps of Gates, Branson and Trump by building up a lemonade empire from the humble surroundings of your front yard. The developers EA Games have put together a solid game which combines strategy, business acumen and a bit of luck. The aim of the game is manage all areas of your lemonade business from the recipe to the marketing, equipment and location of your lemonade stand.

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 »


Mark of Mafia

originalMark of Mafia has taken the iPhone community by storm since its inception. The interactive strategy game plunges you into the depths of the underworld and it’s your job to build up a family that can rise to the top of the criminal fraternity. At the start of the game you must decide where your family’s interests lie: capitalist (money hungry), psychopaths (obsessed with carrying out criminal activity) or executioners (trigger happy nutters). From here it is up to you how you shape your family and what goals you want to achieve. Because this type of game relies on the interaction between players across the world there are no set targets to achieve and no specific objective in site. Players are free to set their own agendas, some will want to buy as many of the varied businesses as possible, while others may just want to run riot amongst the other players by compiling an arsenal that would rival the American Army.
