Bug Heroes In-Depth Review

Bug Heroes was already excellent when it took the App Store by storm last week, but Foursaken Media's first "bug" fix update has brought it to the level of pure gaming bliss. It doesn't really matter which genre you're most fond of; Bug Heroes has something for everyone, whether it be a creative premise, furious onscreen action, high score competition, or deep player character customization....

Aralon: Sword and Shadow HD In-depth Review

Aralon: Sword and Shadow most likely needs no introduction to any serious iOS gamer given the staggering level of pre-release hype and anticipation. If you know nothing of this title; welcome back from your stay in that deep dark cave, here's what you missed......

Infinity Blade In-Depth Review

What is it called when stellar graphics meet beautiful hardware and are infused with sleek mechanics and just a pinch of the surreal? An epic game would be the general answer. My answer - Infinity Blade. Announced at the Apple keynote, "Project Sword", captured our imaginations, not just with game-play or graphics, although it did just that, but especially with what was under the hood......

Galaxy on Fire 2 In-Depth Review

You know how everyone's been clamoring for a sci-fi RPG lately? Fish Labs has an answer for that. While there's nary a hit point to be found in Galaxy on Fire 2, its superbly delivered story and characterization, incredible depth, and overall genre-defying appeal should fit the bill for anyone interested in seeing what happens when roleplaying and adventure are mixed with a little 3D space action. ...

ILLUSIA Trailer Released!

Shining Core Review

At first plagued by a game-crashing bug and unreviewable, Shining Core has benefited from an update that makes it run smoothly on third and fourth generation iDevices at least. Second generation iDevice users will still want to be cautious about picking this one up, and it's a shame because this Match 3/RPG genre mashup from ZLE Game, Inc., turned out to be surprisingly compelling....

Zenonia Retroview

"Retroviews" are becoming all the rage on reviews sites nowadays, and while the iPhone is still a young platform, it feels like there's already a decade's worth of titles for gamers to choose from. Therefore we thought it would be neat to take a look back at Zenonia, the 2009 Gamevil release that put the Action RPG indelibly on the iOS map. Does it still have what it takes to compete in today's RPG-crowded Appstore?...

Yslandia Out Now!

Following its smash-hit performance in France and a thorough beta testing stint in Canada, Yslandia, BulkyPix and Moving Player's ambitious stab at bringing a fully-featured MMORPG to iPhone, is at last available. Sean Koch, iFanzine's go to guy for anything and everything RPG-related, recently spent some hands-on time with (or should that be in?) Yslandia, and declared the game to be "close to perfection..."...

Seed 2: Vortex of War Review

Seed 2's interface could stand some improvement and it's chock full of the ubiquitous fetch quests that are quickly wearing out their welcome in iPhone RPGs, but if you can get past its flaws you'll find a very deep and fulfilling action RPG thanks to an engaging character development system and excellent overall polish....

Rimelands: Hammer of Thor Review

Don't go into this collaboration from Dicework and Crescent Moon expecting an intense story, but they've hit the ball out of the park in every other way that matters to RPG fans. Whether you're more into the Western RPG's quest-based adventuring, the JRPG's structured turn-based battle systems, or getting your noggin tested in tough contests of strategy, Rimelands has you covered....

First Look: Zombies: City of the Dead

Like Laurel and Hardy, spaghetti and meatballs, or Mario and Luigi, the world is full of things that go well together. Zombie games and iPhone are another such match made in heaven. Or should that be hell?. Anyhow, here's another title which will pit the player against hordes of undead worth keeping a watchful eye on......
