Review: Crazy John by Trinity Games

image

I know there are a lot of people that believe Trinity Games is basically in the business of making cheap knock-offs of other developers’ games.  The truth is that their games do tend to be derivative of other games on the App Store, and often aren’t nearly as good.  You can rest assured, however, that such is not the case with Crazy John, which is why I’m bothering to review it in the first place.  Some will argue that it is merely a Minigore clone, or possibly even a rip off of Age Of Zombies.  The reality is, however, that the game offers more features than the first couple of iterations of Minigore (I honestly haven’t played it lately), and I find it more enjoyable than Age Of Zombies.  If you’ve not been convinced in the past that Trinity Games could take a concept and make it their own, Crazy John might just be the product to persuade you.

It’s a sad but true statement – if a dual stick shooter has you controlling some sort of character toting a gun, it will probably be compared to iDracula or Minigore.  The reality is that these two games set the bar incredibly high for this style of game play, so it stands to reason the question would be “how does game X compare to the top of the heap?”  Well, in the case of Demon Hunter, one of the newest entries in this ever expanding club, the answer is that it kind of falls short.  It’s not bad,, but it’s not great either.  And I’m a bit perplexed but the lack of demons in a demon hunting game.



Review: Guerrilla Bob by Chillingo

There’s a new man in town where dual stick shooters are concerned, and he’s certainly one tough hombre.  Is he king of the hill, however?  I’m not quite sure.  There’s certainly a lot to love about Guerrilla Bob, but it doesn’t really bring much new to the genre.  Still, you can’t hardly go wrong with a dual stick shooter, and Bob is definitely among the best.  Besides, how can you resist someone that sabotages the army just so he can personally destroy his former best friend?  You got nothing on Bob, A-Team…
