International Athletics Review

International Athletics LogoFans of Olympic-style gameplay will find a lot to like in International Athletics. This game features more than ten track and field events to master, familiar controls that are well-adapted to the iPhone/iPod Touch platform and a fully 3D cinematic presentation.

International Athletics offers Quick Play, Tournament and Decathlon modes, allowing for short or lengthy play sessions depending on your situation and features multiple difficulty levels so that players of all skill levels can reach for gold in this port of a 2008 PSP and DS game. Read More…

Battle Shock Review

Battle Shock LogoBy incorporating real-time strategy and tower defense conventions, Battle Shock rises above other castle defense games on the iPhone/iPod Touch platform. This flick-based title features 100 waves of increasingly tough enemies to thwart, multiple upgrades and an attractive presentation; all for less than the price of a candy bar.

The concept of Battle Shock sees players assuming the role of a young wizard whose mentor has recently passed away. Your castle’s enemies are using the opportunity to attack and it is up to you to defend it and save the townsfolk by unleashing powerful plasma balls, placing archers and managing your castle’s repairs.

Exorcist Review

Exorcist LogoA unique premise and gameplay mechanic help to set Exorcist apart from the crowded puzzle genre on the iPhone/iPod Touch platform. This title utilizes both the touch and accelerometer capabilities of the iPhone/iPod Touch quite well and features worldwide online rankings. Exorcist is limited to only one game mode, though because of this it becomes a great short-session game.

Exorcist falls directly into the category of game that is easy to pick up and difficult to master. There is really only one goal to achieve and one mechanic to grasp, but doing so requires quick reflexes, some strong hand-eye coordination and a bit of brain muscle.  I have never played a game that uses a mechanic quite like Exorcist, but I will do my best to explain it.

Trixel Review

Trixel LogoThe iPhone/iPod Touch platform certainly has no shortage of high-quality, original puzzle games and Trixel is no exception. This title is challenging without feeling frustrating, features a simple yet charming presentation and has loads of content to work through.

Trixel is a logic-based tile-matching game that tasks players with recreating patterns by sliding and flipping coloured tiles across the game board. The game starts out simply enough, but soon escalates into a highly refined challenge that will keep puzzle fans scratching their heads for hours. Read More…
