Review: Treasure Reef by Invisible Unit

image

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

Review: Finger Raider by Nemo Games

image

As I’ve grown to have less time for playing games, I’ve come to appreciate the simpler things in entertainment.  For example, I’m just as content playing a quick dungeon crawler like Sword Of Fargoal now as I was playing a sprawling RPG like Might & Magic when I was in high school.  However, despite the fact that I’ve seen on many occasions where simple can be fun, simple doesn’t always mean fun.  Sadly, Finger Runner is the perfect example of this.  I think the concept is sound, but the execution is frustrating more than anything.

Monster Trouble Review

image

Monster Trouble is 3D Tower Defense fun, and make no mistake, this game will suck you into endless hours of grinding gameplay. If you like TD games already, and looking for one with a medieval theme, high-quality rendering and effects, and a bit of campy humor, then this is definitely your game.



Review: Dog Pile by ArtWitz Design / JoshOClock

image

I had never even heard of Pachinko until Peggle arrived on the iPhone, and now it seems like there are several different variants of the game on the App Store, most of them trying to disguise the fact that they are actually a Pachinko variant.  One of the latest such variants is Dog Pile, an interesting combination of Pachinko and Match 3, of all things.  Interestingly enough, it is probably one of my favorite versions so far.  Of course it doesn’t hurt that I’m a huge fan of match 3 games, and it’s also a bonus that the dogs are so cute!
