Trials Frontier

Trials Frontier

Trials Frontier is an amazingly addictive and fun game though it can be extremely frustrating! One of the most completely developed mobiles games you may ever own. I first experienced a Trials game in the Xbox 360 Arcade version of Trials Evolution. The instant appeal of this game is its incredible simplicity in mechanics, but

Say The Same Thing

Say The Same Thing

The 50 billionth app on the iOS app store is actually a decent game, and the great thing is it’s also on Android. Designed to get you on the same wave length as the person you’re playing, ‘Say The Same Thing’ is a game about words. To begin you pick a word, any word it

Hitman GO

Hitman GO

Mobile apps are all the rage and the latest Hitman game is looking to cash in on that trend. Hitman GO is really fun and quite challenging, especially if you try to three star every level, my biggest concern is the price tag. At $4.49 it is expensive as far as iOS apps go and the fact that it is singular platform makes me think that Square Enix haven’t put as much behind this game as they probably should have.

Flappy Bird

Flappy Bird

This game is the perfect example of how simple gameplay, mechanics, sounds and graphics can make a great game. With 5 million downloads on Android in just 3 days from release this game has exploded in popularity. There is something so infuriatingly addictive about these types of games you know that the only issue is

Samurai Siege

Samurai Siege

Samurai siege is one of those games where I knew straight away that I was going to get hooked. I’m not huge into these games where you have to build up a village or farm or town ,etc. and upgrade things and spend materials. Because  the aim is to build a little army to go

Mobile Zap Bluetooth Controller

Mobile Zap Bluetooth Controller

I have talked about the issues with on-screen controls in smartphone games before, mostly they are a huge pain. If only there was a small, great looking ,well working controller that could connect up to my phone. Oh wait now there is! Mobile Zap have released a bluetooth controller that has all these features. It

Ninja Cats Vs Samurai Dogs

Ninja Cats Vs Samurai Dogs

Mobile strategy has never been so good and completely immersive.

Ninja Cats Vs Samurai Dogs is an iOS only mobile game by developer heavy weights Eutechnyx. First impressions of the name may lead you down the path of a silly bash around game but let me tell you it is the exact opposite. This game is a tower defence style played over five lanes (similar feel to Plants versus Zombies). When first beginning the game, you may feel overwhelmed but with the help of numerous tutorials you are able to learn the ropes quite quickly and consequently settle into the game.

Compared to other gaming apps on the Apple App Store, this game is rather extensive and will definitely keep you busy for hours on end. Recently I have found myself downloading apps and growing tired of them within a day due to its easy gameplay or simple repetitive game mechanics. Ninja Cats vs Samurai Dogs is the opposite as it has been fleshed out enough that I will be playing for weeks (even months) to come.

Review: Bike Race

Review: Bike Race

Top free games

Bike Race is free, simple and addictive. A triple threat of positives if you ask me.

The controls are simple to learn. Touch the left hand of the screen to brake and the right to accelerate. You need to tilt to screen to maneuver your bike to land wheels down, if you land head first for example, game over. Learning to appropriately lean your device to land jumps and land flips, is the real skill in the game.So in a nut shell, keep the bike up right and complete the map as quick as you can. The game mechanistic are simple, yet effective. The connect is basic enough, some of the puzzles can create a rewarding challenge.

You are given a ranking from 1 to 3 stars, depending on your time. Unlocking these stars will eventually unlock more exciting maps. There are currently 96 maps to unlock within the application. Not to mention 12 exciting worlds and 13 awesomely designed bikes to race with.

Fieldrunners 2

Fieldrunners 2

Developer:      Subatomic Studios  
Platform:         iOS and Steam  
Release:         July 19 2012  

 

Fieldrunners 2 is the much anticipated sequel to the original Fieldrunners tower defense game on iOS. Fieldrunners received high praise which makes it no surprise to learn that Fieldrunners 2 is very similar with a few cool changes. 

Fieldrunners 2 follows the same form as the previous game with “humans” either running, driving tanks or flying planes to the exit. I say humans with inverted commas due to the reason of anyone that can get shot by a machine gun tower, singed by a flamethrower or electrocuted by a Tesla tower obviously has some super human qualities. Your job however, is to somehow prevent them from reaching their destination. You can do this by either building different towers to halt their progress or use “items” which are a special addition that you can use to assist you in defeating the field runners. 

Rise of the Blobs

Rise of the Blobs

Being mellow has never been so harsh, pardon the pun.

Developer: Robot Invader
Platforms: iOS, Android
Release: January 2013

 

This game will test your dexterity, mental agility and your grip on sanity. As the name suggests the game is all about rising blobs. You play as a marshmallow seeking out refuge on a perfectly cylindrical pillar, as you can probably guess the blobs then rise in order to eat you. The only way to stop then munching on your gooey centre is to pelt them with  fruit to quench their insatiable hunger. The game is fun, but each round can go horribly wrong really quickly as Mal the marshmallow gets a little ‘fruit’ trigger happy.

A game that forces a keen eye, requiring you to look in multiple places at once, lightening quick reflexes and a good brain to out puzzle the dungeon.

Simpsons – Tapped Out

Simpsons – Tapped Out

Developers: EA Mobile  
 Platforms: iOS  
 Release Date: 29th Feb 2012  

 

 

 

 The Simpsons – Tapped Out is the latest Simpsons game taking the world by storm. It is available on iOS and with its huge success, Tapped Out has reached number #1 on the app store. Tapped out is a building game where you create the Simpsons “world”. Obviously the game has reached such success as we all know and love the characters that we are controlling.

Tapped out has taken the approach of releasing this game for free but have incorporated micro-transactions for people to spend money to speed up the game or get advantages to the game that people would not normally have the option of doing. Micro-transactions are becoming extremely popular with apps on the app store and a flood of money is being made by these style of games. Although I have never spent money on a micro-transaction I feel that if I was to, The Simpsons – Tapped Out would be where I would lose that micro-transaction virginity. Whether or I am drunk or not when it happens is a whole different story.
