This Friday’s contest is so good it hurts! Attack our ‘Tweet’ button and throw a few Facebook ‘Likes’ in iFanzine’s direction (a combo of both works best) all this week and you could walk away with some truly excellent prizes, including Street Fighter IV Volt, Mighty Fin and Happy Jumper. See what I did there?...

Boost 2 Review

And next up, a golden oldie from two years back makes its second outing on iOS after some retooling. "Boost 2" is chock-full of flying colors, but does that help it pass the ultimate test of good tunnel game design?...

Pivotal Punishment Review

We're starting to get tunnel vision here at iFanzine, what with the tunnel-running genre growing larger by the week. Today we have two back-to-back tunnel game reviews in store, not to mention the world's first application of the "Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Minigame Test for Tunnel Games!" First to undergo this special trial by fire is Silver Fox Media's iOS debut, "Pivotal Punishment!"...

Cado Hands-on Preview

If I'm honest, I've got a love-hate relationship with games like Cado. Now, I do love a good physics-based puzzler because generally they're perfectly suited to pick-up-and-play or on-the-go gaming. But I also sort of hate these addictive little blighters as they unfailingly begin devouring every second of free time I've got. And then some!...

Minicons Review

Inception IQ steps up to the plate with a game that puts a real "spin" (pun absolutely intended) on the typical matching game formula. But if it doesn't go hand-in-hand with depth, can innovation alone be enough to out-maneuver most other genre offerings?...

FatCow Games Interview

This time we go digital barnstorming with FatCow Games, the folks behind the upcoming iOS platformer "Idyllic." This bovine-produced work is shaping up to be a real beauty, that's for sure!...

Cavorite Review

Cascadia Games has gone back in time and returned with a classic! Whether you're a casual puzzle fan or an old school platformer enthusiast, "Cavorite"'s mix of clever logic puzzles and action adventure should strongly appeal....

BackStab Review

There aren't all that many games which are able to offer a stand-up console gaming experience on the iOS platform. While titles such as EA's Dead Space and Firemint's Real Racing 2 have helped bridge this gap, when it comes to consistently delivering heavy-hitting, single player experiences, Gameloft are without a doubt the reigning kings......

Wisp: Eira’s Tale Review

Anyone hoping for a good schooling in Nordic folklore is going to be seriously disappointed with "Wisp: Eira's Tale," as there's precious little 'tale' to be found within. If you came here looking for an impeccably designed casual adventure/action puzzle game, however, you're in a lot of luck!...

Evil Dead Review

In Evil Dead by Trigger Apps, you play as Ash, the wise-cracking, axe-wielding hero taking on an ancient evil. Does the latest game to ride the Bruce Campbell cult vehicle live up to its license or is this just one more page in the book of the dead? Steel yourself and press ahead, dear readers…if you dare!...
