Bow Mobile Interview

The kind folks over at AppsJP served as our go-between for an interview with Bow Mobile CEO Ryosuke Jinno. Find out a little more background on the iOS release of Double Dragon, and Bow Mobile's future plans for the game, inside!...

Zoombie Digger Review

Well, it beggars belief, but App Store newcomers Crazy Bit take two of iOS' most hackneyed genres - the zombie game (groan) and 2D Tower Defense (double-groan) respectively - schmoosh 'em together, and, against all odds, still trot out one of the most addictive, visually unique and fantastically entertaining titles I've had the pleasure of playing all month. ...

Vector Conflict: The Siege Review

DigYourOwnGrave released this one as an online game awhile back, but Littlegrey Media has come along to show us that it truly belongs on iOS. It's on sale for a buck through the rest of the month, so fans of First Person Shooters and Castle Defense games alike are advised to look into it sooner rather than later!...

The Drill Plus Review

Weird. That's the word that springs to mind when playing Spotcat Studio's newest game, The Drill Plus, a top-down shooter that swaps the usual spaceship versus extraterrestrial cannon fodder schtick for a scrawny superhero who wields a humongous drill and does battle with, wait for it, levitating unicorns, Frankenstein's monsters, ghosts and even a bizarre blue-bearded deity!...

InterStellar Force Review

A passion project for indie developer David Molnar, who evidently spent a good chunk of the 80's (and his allowance, no doubt) at the local arcade blasting through an array of side scrolling shoot-em-ups, Interstellar Force is an action-packed and frenetically paced trip down memory lane that pays direct homage to genre greats such as Defender and R-Type....

Super Ball Escape Review

With a gritty, tech-noir-ish tone and aesthetic, fully-fledged storyline told via sumptuous hand-drawn cutscenes and plenty of pulse-pounding stealth-based action, Playlithium's thrilling new game, Super Ball Escape, turns the rolling-ball genre's tendency towards the cute and colorful on its head. Think Metal Gear meets Super Monkey Ball......

First Look: Car Jack Streets 2

As hinted at by Tag Games' Paul Farley earlier this year, the long-awaited (and oft-postponed) sequel to Car Jack Streets looks set to take this old school Grand Theft Auto-esque series in a very different direction. An altogether cuter one, would you believe?! Now, naturally, rubber gets burned, police sirens blare and bullets fly in the newly unveiled teaser trailer......

LastStandStan Review

Much like the engine of a machine that's been left idle to rust and fall into disrepair, Greenbean Games' iOS debut, LastStandStan, requires a little gentle coaxing and patience on the player's part before it eventually splutters to life. But, once you get past the initial few slow-paced levels, this cutesified sci-fi shoot 'em up notches the action up a gear, delivering an enjoyable blend of intergalactic firefights and on-the-fly strategizing....

Bug Heroes Giveaway: 10 Codes up Grabs!

"It’s got everything an iOS gamer could ask for...without a doubt, Bug Heroes is the year’s first must-have release," is how we excitedly summed up Foursaken Media's smash-hit sophomore effort, shortly before honoring this genre-defying gem with our highest accolade, a fantastic 5 stars out of 5! Now, courtesy of the kind folks at Foursaken, iFanzine have 10 copies of this great game to give away to our readers!...

Liv Games Interview

The interview goodness continues! This time we digitally chatted with Orian Livnat, one of the many talented minds behind Liv Games' genre-defying hit, Legendary Wars. Without a doubt, the story behind this game development studio has to be one of the most heartwarming - and dare we say, "legendary"? - to spring out of the economic recession....

Grim Joggers Review

It's likely that at the brainstorming session for this game, some clever clogs piped up with the undeniably inspired suggestion, "Hey, guys, why don't we fuse Canabalt with Lemmings? That could be kind of cool" Well, 10tons Ltd did. And the result, Grim Joggers, is not only very cool, but also represents a novel new twist on the endless running schtick that's guaranteed keep you glued to your iDevice for many a merry hour, repeatedly trying to beat your best score and grinning from ear to ear at the game's warped brand of sardonic ultra-violence....

Devil May Cry 4 refrain In-Depth Review

Dante joins Nero as a playable character thanks to the latest update, but here's a sad irony: those who are in a position to care most will enjoy Devil May Cry 4 refrain the least. This is the kind of port every series fan fears – stripped down to basic essentials, a truly fragmented experience compared to the console version. Be that as it may, it's clear that Capcom put a laser focus on implementing excellent controls and retaining as much gameplay depth as possible, making this a solid purchase for any Action game fan who can put aside the mere fact of its status as a port....
