‘BioShock’ for iOS game review

by 76 comments

BioShock needs very little introduction. If you have been playing video games for the past decade or so, you would have heard about it far too many times by now and most probably played it back when it released on the PC and consoles in 2007.

The full game has now been ported over to iOS and is available on both, the iPhone and the iPad. There has been a reasonable amount of hype surrounding the iOS version, considering how popular the PC and console versions were, so let’s see how good the port is. Read more »

Valiant Hearts: The Great War is a 2D action/puzzle game that originally debuted on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and the PC, and has now made its way to iOS.

Valiant Hearts takes place during World War I, and you play as four characters and try to get a soldier back to his wife and child. The game is known for its art style and storytelling.

Alone is the new side scrolling endless ‘running’ game from developer Laser Dog, the people who brought us the simple yet excellent PUK.

As with PUK, the developers have kept things simple with Alone, with a single finger control for controlling your spacecraft through falling debris and rocks. Let’s take a closer look. Read more »

‘Swing Copters’ for iOS and Android game review

by 109 comments

After all the drama that followed the launch and success of Flappy Bird, one would have assumed the developer would never make another game. Yet here we are, with what is called Swing Copters.

Swing Copters is yet another masocore game from the evil mind of Dong Nguyen. Except this time it’s supposedly even more difficult. Because that’s what was lacking last time. More difficulty. Anyway, let’s see what this one feels like (other than painful). Read more »

‘The Inner World’ for iOS and Android game review

by 36 comments

The Inner World is another one of those popular indie games that was released for the PC and then eventually trickled down to the mobile platform. The game released on iOS late last year but the developers recently ported the game over to Android as well.

The Inner World is a point and click 2D game, along the lines of Machinarium. But although the gameplay might seem familiar, the game has its own story to tell. So let us take a look at the insides of The Inner World. Read more »

‘Modern Combat 5: Blackout’ for iOS, Android and Windows Phone game review

by 35 comments

Modern Combat 5: Blackout is the latest installment in Gameloft’s series of first person action games. The games have traditionally been based on warfare and very close in nature and style to the Call of Duty series of games on the PC and consoles.

The Modern Combat series has taken it up a notch with every installment, with improved visuals, more explosive action and expanded gameplay options every time. Last year’s Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour won several accolades and is heralded as one of the best games on the mobile platform. Let’s see what Gameloft has in store for us this year. Read more »

The Wolf Among Us has been a hugely successful game for developer Telltale Games. Makers of the famous Walking Dead series, TWAU followed a similar gameplay pattern but with a completely different story and characters.

We reviewed the first episode when it released on iOS in December last year. Now that all five episodes are out, we decided to take a look at all of them together. Read more »

Angry Birds Seasons ‘South HAMerica’ update review

by 32 comments

South HAMerica is the latest update to Rovio’s Angry Birds Seasons game, which is updated every now and then for a festival or season specific level pack. The South HAMerica update is odd, in that it doesn’t directly relate to any season or festival, and other than some vague reference to the football matches being held in Brazil isn’t as topical as the previous updates.

As usual, you get a pack of couple dozen levels. We haven’t played the regular Angry Birds in a while so we decided to give this a try. Read more »

‘Godfire: Rise of Prometheus’ for iOS game review

by 39 comments

Godfire: Rise of Prometheus is a third person hack and slash action game. Based in roughly the same period from where every Greek God game comes from, Godfire features some fancy effects and all your favorite Greek mythical creatures that you’ve seen umpteen times before.

I decided to give it a try to see if it is something original or just another God of War rip-off. Read more »

‘Angry Birds Epic’ for iOS, Android and Windows Phone game review

by 8 comments

There is no doubt that Angry Birds is to Rovio what Mario is to Nintendo and Sonic is to SEGA. The company has tried to dabble with other IPs in the past but hasn’t had the same level of success so it keeps going back to the Angry Birds well.

After countless Angry Birds games based on the same original formula, Rovio has tried to diversify it a bit recently, starting with Angry Birds Go, which was a kart racing game (*cough* Mario Kart *cough* Sonic & SEGA All-Star Racing *cough*). The latest game in the Angry Birds series is Angry Birds Epic, which like Angry Birds Go has very little to do with the original games and is actually an RPG. Read more »

by 15 comments

Thomas Was Alone is a popular indie game title that was first released on Steam back in 2012. The game went on to win many awards, including the BAFTA Games Award, and was praised for its gameplay, narration and the superb soundtrack.

After being released on the PS3 and the PSVita last year, Thomas Was Alone was released on iPad this month. This is the first time the game is being released on a full touchscreen device and as such, features brand new controls for the new platform. We decided to take it for a spin and see how Thomas’ story plays out on the iPad. Read more »
