Yet another console game adapted for mobile enjoyment comes our way from the great people over at XS Games. Originally a release on Playstation 2 and PSP, Red Star drops players into a futuristic, super technological world to wage war with the all powerful and evil United Republics of the Red Star (URRS). Prepare to choose from a selection of characters and strap in for some side scrolling, 3D mayhem, complete with super moves, melee attacks, and heavy firepower...

Super Streaker Pro

By |2011-07-10T23:07:45-05:00July 2, 2010|iPhone Reviews|

It’s rare that a title bursts into our lives which is so outrageously offensive that it just might be unbelievably entertaining. The World Cup is in full swing, and as the international community celebrates their unifying pastime, many developers are creating intricate, imaginative soccer games in an attempt to capitalize on the epic event. What does Nemoid Studios do? They piece together a completely insane game featuring a deranged, naked fan whose ultimate goal is to slaughter players and security guards with an arsenal of wild weapon choices...

Rocket Racing League

By |2011-07-10T23:08:34-05:00June 23, 2010|iPhone Reviews|

Inspired by the real life group of mobile racing enthusiasts, Rocket Racing League straps players into a virtual unmanned racing unit for a wild series of twists, turns, and breakneck speeds. A departure from the futuristic and wartime dog fighting titles, this is built around more traditional racing modes such as arcade, drag, and laps. With gorgeous 3D backdrops and a pulsating soundtrack, Rocket Racing League is tough to beat for the next best high powered issue in speedy competition...

Phoenix Spirit

By |2011-07-10T23:09:22-05:00June 18, 2010|iPhone Reviews|

Filled with detailed exploration, secret powers, a host of assorted enemies and maze-like puzzles, Phoenix Spirit is the latest adventure release from Spearhead Entertainment. Utilizing an interesting tilt-based control system, players embark on a journey to save the Mother Tree from losing its life force and perishing, much to the dismay of our flying squirrel hero. Designed in a similar style to classics such as Metroid or Castlevania, Phoenix Spirit is decent, but falls short of the games it attempts to emulate...

Who remembers the Super Nintendo and arcade classic, F-Zero? This is what immediately bubbled up from my childhood memories as soon as I started playing Phaze, which expands upon the futuristic racing title with fast paced action along curvy tracks while snatching power ups and battling against rivals to capture first place. Fire missiles, drop bombs, and hit boosts to reach blistering speeds capable of making your eyes tear...

Jump O’Clock

By |2011-07-10T23:10:38-05:00June 2, 2010|iPhone Reviews|

Low priced, seeming endless randomized game content, multiple challenge modes, and a bouncing hero by the name of Leo all for $0.99? That’s just some of what you can expect from Jump O’Clock. With his magnetic boots and super jumping ability, Leo climbs the endless clock tower while avoiding fire, blades, steam, and other obstacles. An entertaining and possibly addictive title, Glu Mobile ratchets up the value with their latest game...
