This is a weird title. For one, I would not have thought that fish collecting would be a genre in mobile games. But it seems like the amazing success of Ridiculous Fishing is already starting to spawn a school of like-minded titles. Chillingo's Zombie Fish Tank would seem to be one of those games, only with, you know.. zombies. This wacky game is full of arcade-like action and plenty of aquatic critters to add to your growing collection.
Stickman Tennis is far from ambitious, and keeping it simple is not such a bad thing for such a cut-and-dry sport. Except for the silhouetted players on the court, nothing really grabs your attention as anything special, but this title isn't about all the fancy trimmings. Keeping it simple was the right move. And for gamers who love watching or even playing tennis, the real draw to this game is the action.
I love a good arcade game and the iOS is the perfect platform for me to slake my thirst for fast-paced action. Post-apocalyptia is the perfect setting for a pulpy shoot ‘em up, but the scenery and setting is all too familiar. From 80’s movies to Fallout 3, the deserted wasteland is almost more familiar than your local neighborhood. But a new iOS game aims to add a new twist to the usual. Fire and Forget: The Final Assault is a fast-paced arcade-style shooter that looks like a mashup of Mad Max and Need for Speed. Will this game be a final assault on your boredom or will it quickly be forgotten? Let’s have a look.
Farming game enthusiasts who need an alternative to The Simpsons: Tapped Out should give Epic, a title based on the 3D animated feature of the same name, a shot. The goal is to build a mini kingdom in the middle of a forest and aid a group of warriors named the Leafmen in their battle against the environmentally-unfriendly Boggans. If you hold a connection with Mother Nature or just love the color, this free-to-download title is worth a peek.
I can be honest and tell you that I was not particularly all that excited about reviewing a game that featured three of the most played-out trends in gaming today: retro graphics, endless runners, and zombies. But Dead Ahead proves that proper execution can make all the difference. With everything presented in a tidy package, Dead Ahead manages to make old ideas seem fresh again, which is not a small feat considering the amount of rotting flesh and gore I had to deal with.
Call of Mini: Dino Hunter is an absolute breath of fresh air and an adventure that may compel you to stay glued to your iOS device for hours. Visually enticing, this adventure could have been a one-dimensional shooter and survive on its beauty alone. With inspired gameplay and a richly-detailed world to boot, this dinosaur tale isn't headed for extinction anytime soon.
Oh lord! Not another block-breaker game that thinks it can come along and be a success by piggybacking on a concept that has been around since the Atari. How many thousands of these are floating about the aether within Apple’s servers? Too many. They’re all just a rehash of the same thing you know, with slightly different graphics and music. That’s it. Oh wait, you say that Hyper Breaker Turbo lives up to its ridiculous name and is one of the best block-breaking games to come around in a long time? The hell it is! That’s what they all promise. Let’s check it out any way just in case. No rock unturned and all of that.
Hey mountain bikers, I've got an app you need to get: Downhill Supreme! Hey casual gaming enthusiasts, I've got an app you need to get: see previous! Downhill Supreme manages to both be an app for hardcore mountain bikers and a nice little title for casual gamers that are just looking for a fun challenge.
Combo Crew brings fast-paced brawling to the iOS platform, taking minor inspiration from classic beat 'em ups like Final Fight and Streets of Rage. The question is, however, whether this punch-throwing, rough-and-tumble fighting game is Godlike, or total scrub tier?
I love a good oddball game. The kind of title that really makes you sit up and take notice. Something that pushes you off the ledge of boredom and into the land of “hunh, that looks interesting.” There are a few games in the App Store that give you such a nudge, but even so, it is rare to find something with quality and character. Could 1968 be one of these fabled games to reinvigorate your love of iOS gaming? Possibly. Let's see, shall we?
