Last Defense of our Time Review

Last Defense of our Time Review

By Oliver Stockley | Reviews

Last Defense of our Time (£1.49/$1.99) by Beauty of the Fall Productions is an odd mixture of the good, the bad and the somewhat ugly. If it was edible, I’d definitely chew on it – the question is how long I’d enjoy the taste for. Yes, this is a chewing gum game: fresh breathed at first, but the taste grows tired. But like chewing gum, the app is also surprisingly [&hellip

SuperRope Review

SuperRope Review

By Oliver Stockley | Reviews

SuperRope (free!) by Craneballs Studios involves ropes, pigs, pianos and helicopter hats. And if none of that appeals, it also includes octopi, aliens and a sausage who bites his lip with concentration as he climbs through space. If nothing else, the game should at least contain something for everyone. You’re tasked with ascending ropes by hopping between them as you encounter obstacles, which can either lurk in the environment, on [&hellip

Pick a Piggy Review

Pick a Piggy Review

By Oliver Stockley | Reviews

Pick a Piggy (69p/99 cents) by Dynamic Pixels is more polished than any of my shoes have ever been, but that isn’t all that’s needed to really make a game shine. Thankfully, the app comes with enough substance to make its style worthwhile. The game is all about navigating a rotund little piggy called Pong through a maze-like house by flinging her with your finger. Each level requires that you [&hellip

Amazing Breaker – BEST APPS

By Oliver Stockley | Best Apps

Amazing Breaker (69p/99 cents) by Dekovir Review Extract: “Amazing Breaker is outstanding, there’s no doubting it. Even if you don’t read the rest of this review, I’ll tell you right now: you should buy this game. No, you need to buy this game. The concept of the app is immediately accessible. You’re required to smash ice sculptures by flinging bombs at them. You have four different bomb types to play [&hellip

Lane Splitter Review

Lane Splitter Review

By Oliver Stockley | Reviews

Lane Splitter (69p/99 cents) by fractiv surprised me. I thought it would be rubbish, though I can’t place why. Maybe it was the name; Lane Splitter sounds like an action game, where you bloodily slice monsters in half with nothing but your very sharp fingernails. I was let down on that front – it’s about dodging cars. Or perhaps it was the app icon – some idiot in a suit [&hellip

The Blocks Cometh Review

The Blocks Cometh Review

By Oliver Stockley | Reviews

The Blocks Cometh (69p/99 cents) by Halfbot is an endless vertical platformer with a twist. In the words of chicken little, “the sky is falling!” – or at least, blocks are falling from the sky. You need to jump on top of them as they land, so that you don’t get squashed, pancake-style. As you ascend, they fall more quickly, forcing you to continue desperately jumping higher and higher – [&hellip

Doodle Fit - BEST APPS

Doodle Fit – BEST APPS

By Oliver Stockley | Best Apps

Doodle Fit (59p/99 cents) by Gamelion Studios Review Extract: Doodle Fit by Gamelion Studios embodies perfectly the frustration and satisfaction that I feel when packing bags for a holiday. Whenever I’m going away, I pile up my clothes, books, toothbrush and more on my bed, but they never fit in the damn bag. I spend hours trying to slot items together until I can eventually force the bag zip closed. [&hellip

Tiny Wings – BEST APPS

By Oliver Stockley | Best Apps

Tiny Wings (59p/99 cents) by Andreas Illiger Review Extract: “Tiny Wings is one my favourite iPhone apps. For a start, it’s about a bird – and everyone loves birds, even when they’re angry. The bird in question here is young and innocent; he’s yet to discover the world. Wide-eyed, he looks out from his nest and sees beautiful rolling hills, but he can’t explore them. And why? He can’t fly [&hellip
