Predators Review

The general rule of thumb is that any game based around a movie is likely to rushed, sloppy affair designed solely to cash in on celluloid success and turn a quick buck. For this reason, I approached Chillingo's iPhone adaptation of Predators with extreme caution. Happily, it shatters convention, and offers up a heady mix of brutally violent action, gorgeous visuals, and pitch-perfect controls.

Death Cop Mechanical Unit Review

If video games are to believed, our future is gonna be pretty grim. And Blue Shadow Games' App Store debut, Death Cop, which boasts cyber-genetic creatures knocking seven bells out of each other in the dust of decimated cities and against the charming backdrop of post-apocalyptic wastelands, does nothing to dispel the myth.

Zombie Flick Review

From the off, Full Fat's latest title addresses a niggling little improbability that has long irked me about most every game set amid a zombie apocalypse - namely, the heroic survivor's easy access to a stockpile of knives, guns, and grenades. Far more realistically, when a horde of flesh-eaters accost Zombie Flick's main protagonist - think a Saturday Night Fever era John Travolta - he must fend them off with anything he can lay his mitts on.

Eggs In Space Looks Ace!

Boasting an intriguing art style, toe-tapping tunes and a wacky premise, The Lonely Bee Games' soon to be released iPhone game Eggs In Space is shaping up nicely. From the press release: HELP!!! The Eggs are invading and the peaceful people of Spoonville have sent you up into the cosmos to defend them in this unique tap'n'crack action game.

Mirror’s Edge Review

Labelling any game a "white-knuckle thrill ride" might seem more than a little glib, but when it comes to EA Mobile's pulse quickening platformer Mirror's Edge, trust me, it's an enthusiastic commendation never more apt.

Creatures The First Blood Review

Playus Soft's Creatures - The First Blood does exactly what it says on the tin. No more, and no less. A space set dual-stick shooter packed with thrills but minus the frills, this is 100% focused on delivering an intense hit of last-as-long-as-you-can action and Openfeint fuelled high-score hunting.
