When towers reach dizzying heights, there is only one type of hero with the thrust to be able to reach the top. With the princesses of the land all captured and cooped up in one tower, separated by easily breakable wooden ceilings, one knight, equipped with sword, armour and a comically oversized cannon looks to save them all. Will our knight break through the ceiling in the Knightmare Tower?
With the release of Noctis on Tekken 7 this past Tuesday, I felt it was only appropriate to check out another Final Fantasy product. Whilst I could review any game within the franchise, including the incredible Final Fantasy Tactics series, I felt that I’d pick on something relatively new. Weighing in at a whopping 1.5gb on my phone, Final Fantasy Brave Exvius is one of the latest attempts at storming Android and iOS by Square Enix. How does Brave Exvius stand up to other mobile titles, how ad-heavy is it and more importantly, what do you actually do on it?
Everyone knows how Pac-Man plays and what Pac-Man is, but I saw that there was an official Bandai Namco app available for Pac-Man. So, naturally, I had to download it as I’m a huge fan of Pac-Man and all to do with the yellow gobbler. But, like everything in this day and age, there had to be something new the game brought along. There had to be something that separated this version of the classic maze-game and the original, so if you’ve eyed up this app, check it out in today’s review.
Physics puzzle games were at one point all of the rage – And they weren’t the only puzzles to be such an important part of the genre. ‘Drawing’ puzzles were another massive part of pushing puzzles onto mobile. We had games like Cut The Rope and Scribblenauts. Recently, I found a new puzzle which fits the bill of a drawing physics game, called Brain It On! and thought I’d give the title a try. After all, I love a good puzzle and the game was free, so this could only be good, right?
I remember being a child, wanting to go to Thorpe Park and ended up going to a different theme park called Thorpe Park, due to. Instead of ending up in Surrey, we found ourselves in a place called Cleethorpe. From that day, I vowed to create the greatest theme parks in the world – But I was a bit too young, so I played Roller Coaster Tycoon! Now, with the power of smartphones, Roller Coaster Tycoon is on our phones and tables – And no, this isn’t some dumbed down wannabe either..!

What happens when you are playing a shooter? Typically, you go around, killing enemies, upgrading your weapons and armour and away you go. Okay, so far so good.
What happens when you are playing an RPG? You gather experience to upgrade your character, slowly getting more and more absurdly powerful to defeat even more absurdly powerful foes. Great.
So then what happens when you play a game that needs you to upgrade everything, including the interface? Uhh… Welcome to Upgrade The Game 2!
Ever felt that heroes weren’t active enough? That they were all a little too sluggish; a little too slow to the action? Wouldn’t it just be better if you could fling a champion at a situation and let them do all of the hard work? Well then, this very specific scenario has finally got a solution, as we check out the mobile game for Android and iOS, Hyper Heroes. Is it any good, or is it a little too charged with sugar?
Clicker games kicked off when an innoculous little game called Cookie Clicker hit the internet, to which we all had a good laugh. There were earlier clicker games, the technical genre name called incremental, but most people will cite Cookie Clicker as the first. But since then, the genre has gotten a lot more variety. One of the most popular and well-rounded clicker game is AdVenture Capitalist, which was created on the Browser Game website, Kongregate. It’s been on mobile as well as Steam for a while now, so what can this clicker game offer for us and is it actually any good?
