Review: Samurai Tale by SteamPack

image

Samurai Tale is a simple combat game, and it had the potential to be rather interesting, especially if you’re looking for something with fighting that doesn’t have the complexities of a Street Fighter type game.  Unfortunately, there are enough little things wrong with it that the game becomes somewhat mediocre as a whole, and given the number of quality games available on the App Store, that’s not a good thing.  I would love to see some more work put into this to help it rise above its current level, because I’m one of those that really likes a casual fighter from time to time.

Ollie Punk, police car jumping, edgy skate game launches on iTunes App Store

New York, NY—May 12th, 2011—In a dystopian police state where skaters are jailed,
one lone punk ollies his way to freedom. Ollie Punk is a new multitouch game for iOS
and Android devices where players control a rebellious skater that must leap over a
seemingly endless stream of oncoming police vehicles at increasingly insane speeds.
At a time when the mobile game landscape is dominated by colorful and cartoony titles
like Angry Birds, Tiny Wings and Air Penguin app developers Kaza Razat and Khalid
Mills are hoping consumers have an appetite for games with slightly edgier themes.
Ollie Punk features distressed, urban inspired graphics, bass thumping music tracks and
an unforgiving style of gameplay. "As players progress deeper into the game the vehicles

Home Sheep Home, Based on the Popular Aardman Characters, Arrives at the iOS App Store

May 10, 2011 - Shaun the Sheep and his fellow flock members Shirley and Timmy have arrived at the iOS App Store in Home Sheep Home, a recreation of the BAFTA-nominated game developed by Aardman Digital for Shaun the Sheep, which has been played over 80 million times. Home Sheep Home challenges players to safely navigate Shaun, Shirley and Timmy through precarious situations of increasing difficulty as they try to find their way back to the barn.

Each sheep's unique abilities come in handy for specific tasks, requiring players to quickly switch between them to overcome obstacles. For example, Shirley is the largest and strongest of the sheep, while Timmy is the smallest and lightest. Shaun's size falls between that of his two pals, making him the perfect all-purpose sheep.


Review: Treasure Reef by Invisible Unit

There’s something about an underwater setting that promotes peace and tranquility – unless, of course, you’re a fish with a vengeance and can blow killer bubbles.  In Treasure Reef you play Herby, a fish trying to find the legendary treasure of Reef Island.  Unfortunately there are these nasty creatures called Creeps that will do whatever they can to make sure you don’t get that treasure.  You have 28 levels to prove them wrong and find out what the legend is.



Chillingham Manor iPhone App Review

image

Playing games on my iOS devices is always very entertaining, but if it is something that can make me think hen it is really exciting. One such game is Chillingham Manor by Synqua Games- Chillingham Manor is a well-designed puzzle game that is easy to play while on the go.

This game far exceeded my expectations on the first look. After seeing the screenshots and icons I thought the game might come under the action category involving zombies and ghosts. But after exploring the game I discovered it was actually a puzzle game with a fancy design and interface. There are zombies, ghosts, bats and much more on the screens makes the game feel haunted, but the game play is still just a puzzle game.

Review: Pinch 2 HD...This Is The Game You Have Been Waiting For

image

A few months ago, I received an offer to check out a sneak preview of a new game, Pinch HD.   Well, to be fair, it was not an entirely new game, but an iPhone game being rewritten for the iPad.  Right off the bat, I was impressed.  The game was an original and intriguing, but lacked a bit of polish.  As such, I was excited to see the finished product, which turned out to suffer from interminable delays.  I emailed with the developers, but they had little information, about when the game would actually find its way to the App Store.  Fast forward about two months, and the game has finally arrived in the iTunes App
