Mobile Game Review: Colorblind

Bringing a unique spin on the platformer genre, Colorblind features a little eye with legs that must run and jump its way through a dangerous world. In a bid to go and save its friend from an evil ominous cloud, our protagonist must find colours to go and traverse the treacherous journey ahead of it. But how does the game stand up on an already bloated market? Let’s have a look and see what eye think of it…

… Wait, what..?

Mobile Game Review: Infinitode

Tower Defense is a genre that blends strategy, fast-paced gameplay and general clicking around. I’ve always enjoyed a good tower defense title, which is actually pretty hard to come by. I mean, there are games like the Bloons series, but I’ve always wanted a good strategy on my phone. Lo and behold, I end up finding Infinitode, which I read a lot of good things about. It’s only fitting therefore that I got around to trying the Android based tower defense title. Would I be knocking out towers like nobodies business, or would I be falling to the hordes of enemies I was to encounter?

Mobile Game Review: Scribblenauts Remix

The highly acclaimed Scribblenauts is a unique puzzle-sandbox, which allows you to type in anything you want and get that item (within reason). Of course, this was a match made in heaven for smartphones! Released on iPhone in 2011 and Android in 2013, Scribblenauts Remix takes the format of the original Scribblenauts and condenses it down to a simpler play. But does this condensed version contain mundane gameplay, or is it a hidden gem in the Apple and Google stores?

Mobile Game Review – Magic: the Gathering Puzzle Quest

Typically speaking, I’m not a massive fan of these games which mismash two games together. When you get a game as deeply enriched in story and trading card gameplay, then you just stick the gameplay of a match-three puzzle game, it doesn’t sound particularly deep or interesting. However, Magic: the Gathering Puzzle Quest looks to bring about a much more interesting mix of the card game we’ve all grown to love, with simple, easy gameplay. If you’re looking for a game that brings two genres together, then this may be the one for you – So stick with us as we check out this Puzzle Quest.

Mobile Game Review: Knightmare Tower

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?

Mobile Game Review – Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius

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?

Mobile Game Review: Pac-Man

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.

Mobile Game Review: Brain It On!

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?

Video Game Review: Roller Coaster Tycoon Classic

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..!
