Aeropack Review

Aerpack Title ScreenIn this challenging puzzle platformer players embody a scientist exploring the Moon and collecting gems while attempting to avoid aliens and obstacles. Bogged down by a series of problems including cumbersome controls and glitchy animations, Aeropack has promise, but leaves much to be desired.

Aeropack is made up of 30 levels, which are unlocked as you complete them. To move your character, you’ll shift your left thumb to the left or right on a the directional dial, or down to slide along ladders. Pressing a red button with your right thumb will fire your Aeropack or make you climb ladders. Unfortunately, twitchy and awkward controls make it hard to manoeuvre. You will also find your thumb easily slipping off the dial. Read More...

Nurikabe Vault Review

Nurikabe Vault LogoNurikabe Vault is one of the best executed independent iPhone/iPod Touch titles that Game Forward has come across in some time. Containing 500 hand-made puzzles and a highly polished presentation, the game was single-handedly developed by Rogers George.

Nurikabe is a Japanese number-based puzzle game created by Nikoli Corp., the inventors of Sudoku. It can best be described as a mixture of Go and Minesweeper, in which players are presented with a board containing various numbers.

Rope Raider Review

Rope Raider LogoAddictive high score-based gameplay and seamlessly integrated leaderboards compliment a polished presentation and make Rope Raider a perfect choice for a short gaming session on the go. This deceptively simple and accessible physics-based platformer can be played with one finger.

Rope Raider has you assume the role of a portly, yet agile bandit who resembles Peter Griffin more than he does Lara Croft. The game sends you swinging across a night time cityscape using a grappling hook  that is fired by simply tapping on a building. You have to tap the screen of your iPhone/iPod Touch again to send your character flying, hopefully within grasp of the next building. Read More…
