Nesen Probe

By |2011-07-10T23:04:50-05:00August 12, 2010|iPhone Reviews|

If there was an award at iPhone Gamer Blog for weirdest game ever, Nesen Probe, would win. That being said, weird doesn’t necessarily mean good. In this game, you take on the role of a flying spaceship nose (oh you expected something not quite that weird?) that goes around trying to suck in flying circles of green and purple (and a health kit from time to time). The real danger lays in accidentally sucking up one of the encroaching gray circles which take away points and life...

Soccer Rally

By |2011-07-10T23:04:55-05:00August 12, 2010|iPhone Reviews|

It’s not that Soccer Rally is bad, just that it’s not very special. I mean, basically what it boils down to is a pong-type game clone with you controlling a goalie instead of a bar. Instead of a pong ball, you have a soccer ball. There are a few things I’ll discuss below that make it as bit more interesting than old school pong but all in all, and I won’t beat around the bush – you probably won’t like this game very much...

Rocket Boy 2D

By |2011-07-10T23:05:02-05:00August 12, 2010|iPhone Reviews|

2D platformer’s have made a comeback on the iPhone and iPod Touch platform in recent years. That is in part due to the iPhone's lack of physical buttons and small screen size. That being said, I don't see it as a negative. Especially when they are made as well as Rocketboy 2D. This game, created by indie dev, PowPowGames, really came out of nowhere and once again proves that an indie developer with a few resources and a talented team can make a really solid game...

Madden NFL 11

By |2011-07-10T23:05:07-05:00August 11, 2010|iPhone Reviews|

Perhaps no series in game history has done as much two step forward, one step back taking as the Madden football series that is released every year for nearly every system. Madden NFL 11 makes the second Madden series appearance on the iPhone and I extremely pleased to say that it does not take any steps back; instead is drives itself forward for a first down. A blend of updated graphics, dynamic ai, and realistic game play really make this a must buy for those mobile football gaming fans. It also puts to shame Gameloft’s latest attempt at a rival mobile franchise, NFL 2011...

NFL 2011

By |2011-07-10T23:05:14-05:00August 9, 2010|iPhone Reviews|

Gameloft's newest effort, NFL 2011, falls fall short of my expectations when it comes to progressing from the game's first iteration. That being said, can it stand on its own as a good football game in its own right despite its lack of progress since its inaugural version in 2009? Unfortunately no. This game fails as both an upgrade and a football game in quite a few ways, many of which are fixable...

Army of Mice

By |2011-07-10T23:05:20-05:00August 9, 2010|iPhone Reviews|

Grab your sword, hammer, and ray gun, because it’s time to defend the planet from an evil horde of samurai mice! Somewhat similar to Whac-a-mole, Army of Mice arms you with an assortment of weapons and power-ups to smash the enemy mice into oblivion, while they attempt to slice and dice you with throwing stars, swords, and just about anything else you can imagine. Multiple game modes and nearly 120 levels are just the tip of the iceberg on the latest title from On Concept Ltd...

Helsing’s Fire

By |2011-07-10T23:05:24-05:00August 5, 2010|iPhone Reviews|

Enter the bleak, dismal world of The Shadow Blight with Professor Helsing and his loyal assistant Raffton, and prepare to face the demonic minions of Dracula. Armed with torches and explosive tonics, the team navigates their way deeper into the darkness, while the puzzles becoming increasingly quick and addictive. Combining unique level design and an interesting, yet somewhat corny storyline, Helsing’s Fire will have you battling rats, skeletons, and vampire bats for hours on end...

SimCity Deluxe

By |2011-07-10T23:05:35-05:00August 2, 2010|iPhone Reviews|

SimCity Deluxe offers a bunch of additions over its predecessor that brings this version much closer Simcity 4 on the PC or Mac. The graphics, along with the functionality, have been upgraded and really add to the longevity of the gameplay. If you never played the first version of SimCity on the iPhone and iPod Touch, you missed out on a pretty good game. That being said, this version is really a whole lot better. Still, it will likely be a tough decision for some of you that purchased the first edition. While obvious improvements have been made across the board, it's still just SimCity...
