If you have read any of my previous reviews dealing with matching games, you know that I usually don't care for them. In fact, Match 3 and 4 games are the bane of my existence. That's why it’s so surprising when a game like Flipstones comes around. Though there is a great deal of matching to do, the unique way you do it makes it a great deal of fun. Unfortunately, this game is not without its problems...

The Gravedigger

By |2011-07-10T23:05:45-05:00July 28, 2010|iPhone Reviews|

Townsfolk versus Zombies. Mild mannered people pitted against the rotting carrion of the undead. Grab the nearest torch or club and prepare to smash the enemy while defending the leader of your group in this latest mobile title from Behold Studios. The Gravedigger allows players to choose their team and enter the trenches of a local town to wage war in a real time strategy format. Although not without a couple hiccups, this is a decent breakthrough into the genre which actually dares to venture past the landlocked tower defense setup...

Quoridor

Alright, so who spent some time at one point or another playing the Quoridor board game? For the uninitiated, Quoridor was a popular game throughout the 90s, winning a number of awards during its prime, which was translated into the 2000s through an online format. Simiula took on the challenge of porting this onto the iPod for puzzle and board game enthusiasts, in an attempt to capture the fun and excitement generated by the innovative original. While the entertaining concept is still there, an overall rigid feel which spreads from graphics to controls takes away from what should be pretty simple enjoyment...

Marbles. It’s fun for the whole family, enjoyable for nearly everyone, and simple enough to wrap your head around the concept in about 30 seconds. Enter Marble Mixer, a multiplayer title with three separate games jammed into one app to keep you shooting marbles all over the place like you don’t even own that high definition flat screen TV or overpriced Macbook Pro. Okay, well you’re playing it on an iPhone so let’s not get quite so carried away...

Freaking Inkies HD

By |2011-07-10T23:30:09-05:00July 26, 2010|iPad Reviews|

Freaking Inkies is probably the most colorfully fun, shooter-based iPad game I have ever played. The back story is that you have a library of books and these Inkies, those freaking Inkies, are trying to ruin and write all over the pages. To protect your books you have to eliminate those Inkies by shooting them with a color ball that matches their color, yellow for yellow, red for red and so on...

Ping Ping

Ping Ping is kind of like bar room shuffleboard. Have you ever played it? The idea is that you slide several puck-like objects across a long piece of wood trying to land it in your competitor’s area. The difference in Ping Ping is that instead of trying to land it in a certain area of the board, you are trying to knock your opponent’s pucks off the board entirely. That would all be fine and good if it wasn't for one thing - it's incredibly boring to play the computer...

Let’s Golf 2

By |2011-07-10T23:06:09-05:00July 23, 2010|iPhone Reviews|

Let's Golf 2 may be a Hot Shots Golf clone but who cares? It’s awesome. From the crystal clear graphics to the perfect golf course settings, this game is a sure bet to hold even the amateur video game golfer’s attention. The graphics in particular look absolutely outstanding on my iPhone 4 and better yet, show no noticeable slowdown despite the higher quality...
