We often find ourselves going back to fond childhood memories of the games we played back in the “good old days”, when the quality of the game play itself on the PC was far more important than flashy graphics. Dogfighting games were always addictive and came in a multitude of varieties, but all had one thing in common: game play which while quite simple, required incredible skill and finesse. And don’t even get me started on the glorious feeling of pounding your friends to dust in hot-seat multi player (yeah, that was the only way you COULD play multi player in those days). Well, MrFungFung has brought the same good ol’ fun to the iPhone!
If you’ve read my review of Modern Combat: Sandstorm, then you know how much I praised the game. With gorgeous graphics, good solid controls, and an enjoyable but short storyline, Modern Combat: Sandstorm provides for an excellent FPS experience on the iDevice.
However, my only gripe with the near-perfect game was the lack of online multiplayer. Well folks, after nearly 3 months of waiting, Gameloft has finally pulled through! Local and online multiplayer has been added in this new and one heck of an update. 3 maps are currently offered, which support up to 4 players in solo or team matches. Performance on my 3GS has been surprisingly good, with minimal lag experienced. Needless to say, this is one heck of an update. One of the best FPSes on the iDevice just got better. Modern Combat: Sandstorm is highly recommended if you still haven’t picked up a copy yet. Go Go Go!

Update: There have been widespread reports of players encountering the dreaded UPNP error when attempting to connect to a network. Personally, I was able to “fix” this by turning Airplane mode on on my iPhone. If this doesn’t work for you, try enabling/disabling your bluetooth as well. Hopefully, Gameloft will have this sorted out shortly.
As the developer quoted in the App Store description of the game, Super Juicy is what happened when Tetris and Bubble Wrap had a baby. It is as satisfying as Bubble Wrap – in Technicolor, to boot – with the varied and imaginative styling of Tetris. It should be on the list of the best iPhone/iPod Touch games ever but right now, it’s not getting the buzz that it deserves.

The game looks really nice and with the $0 price tag (for a very VERY limited time) it’s a crime not to get it! What are you waiting for?!
P.S. More screens after the gap.

When the first Ravensword: The Fallen King screenshots and trailers appeared on the net, I thought: “This is it!

Namco is a major league player when it comes to console games. And they have just released a new dual-stick survival shooter with a twist – you control a newly no-longer-dead hot chick named Marie Dupois in her epic fight with the Thrum in a desperate attempt to rescue her still-alive husband. And did I mention she’s gorgeous?
Hero Defense is a game very similar to Townrs Defender, which I had previously reviewed for TMA. There are some differences that make this game unique in its own way, but ultimately the biggest thing that separates it from Townrs is the difficulty level. Hero Defense is hard – really hard. If that’s the kind of game you’re looking for, you’ve come to the right place – and I’m ready to tell you all about it.
