Okay, I told you my “series” on infinite runners wouldn’t be coming out 5 days in a row. In fact, this is part two and I think I’ve published 2 or 3 other reviews in between. At any rate, this time around I’m taking a look at The Last Driver from Chillingo. Apparently you are the last driver in a post-apocalyptic world filled with zombies, UFOs and dinosaurs. Thankfully you have an upgradable vehicle that jumps and has weapons attached to it, so theoretically you’ll be okay. In practice, though, that isn’t so much the case. Still, it can be quite entertaining for those few moments you stay alive between menu screens.
Back in the day HeroCraft was one of my favorite PocketPC / Palm game developers, so I’m happy to see that they are becoming active in the iOS market. While they still haven’t ported one of my favorite games over to the platform yet they have definitely selected some interesting titles to release for the device, and Gibbets 2 is no exception. This archery game has you freeing the poor sods that would otherwise be the victims of the hangman’s noose (yeah, apparently that same guy that likes to torture innocents because other people can’t guess words quickly enough). You’ll have to skillfully wield a bow and arrow across more than fifty levels to help set the hanging men free.
Epic Hearts is a hot new RPG drop in the iTunes App Store from the talented dev team that gave us Secret of Chateau de Moreau. Secret of Chateau de Moreau is an exceptional adventure mystery game, while Epic Hearts is an action RPG, but it does have one thing in common with its predecessor. It’s impressive.
If I had to speculate about what kind of twisted game the little girl from Finding Nemo might dream up to play with her fish, this would probably be it. If you have any objections to animal cruelty, even if it’s only electronic, you might not appreciate this game. Along the way poor Yello will get spiked, frozen, torched and all around beaten up, even though ultimately you’re “kindly” returning him to his bowl. The rest of you that can deal with that should actually get a kick out of this game. “Stretch and launch” physics games have become a dime a dozen on the App Store, but ones like Saving Yello still manage to make the genre fun.
This is arguably one of my all-time favorite games, and one that I play literally every (I do not exaggerate) chance I get. If you like combat shooters, you have to get this game, load it up on your devices (all of them), and immerse yourself in the magical combat bliss that is Trigger Fist!! You will not get bored, and you will not want to stop playing. Every sacred goat you snare and protect with your life; every hard-won upgrade and unlock; every perfectly laid ambush you and your team execute will keep you coming back again and again! Do yourself a big favor, and get it NOW, just updated for latest iPhone and iPod touch versions, for ONLY 99 cents... for a limited time I'm sure.
Monster Tower is a fun new game which does a great job combining the strategy requirements of tower defense with a ‘angry birds’ style set up where you have to defeat numerous different boards within each level. You’ll be able to play this game for many hours because of the constantly increasing difficulty and dozens of different upgrades and purchases to be made during the game.
Time for my game reviews of some of the latest and best newcomers to the App Store! We have a whole slew of new games with more on the way, so let’s take a minute to recap what we have so far. These are a few of my favorites of the new crop of games that have popped up in the App Store! This week's reviews include the smash-hit Apocalypse Max as well as new endless runners, Zaxxon Escape and Amazing Runner.
I have a problem, and it’s called infinite runners for my iOS device. I don’t recall which one I first latched on to, but especially since the dawn of the Temple Run style game I’ve gotten hooked on so many I could probably fill a couple home pages up with them. To that end I’ve decided to take a week long look at the latest offerings in this genre. Now that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll get reviews for a week straight, but rather my next five entries will be related to this addictive style of game play. The first entry in my series is Super Penguins, the premiere offering from newcomers Supersolid Ltd. I have to say they’re off to a pretty good start.
($5.00) is the fantastic new game from the veteran video game designers at BitMonster
. While it may be their first collective foray into the world of iOS games under their current indie business incarnation, each one of the six senior developers has impressive experience and credentials which uniquely prepare them to spearhead this new game development company. Lili is a new release as well as Apple Editor’s Choice and it is nothing short of a masterful creation! In fact, I would go so far as to say Lili may be a contender for Best RPG of the year.
Gibbits 2 is an innovative arcade puzzle game where you have to help someone who is hanging from a hangman’s rope. While this may sound quite simple and straight forward, it is actually a bit more complex than that. To free the hanging man you need to carefully aim your bow and arrow to cut the rope. Of course, you have to be extra careful not to accidently hit the man causing him further injury, and if you take too long he will die from suffocation.
