The Sandstorm Strikes Back!- MC:S Multiplayer Update Is Upon Us!

modern-combat-sandstorm-preview1If 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.

Super Juicy in Review – Bubble, Bubble, Toil and More Bubble!

Review-games-Super-Juicy-1

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.

Hero Defense in Review – Good Luck, You’re Gonna Need It.

Hero Defense 1

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.

Earthworm Jim out and inching its way to App Store Stardom

AR-Games-ERJ-01

Earthworm Jim, for those dying to relive their 16-year old days — or more likely in the case of a majority of iPhone gamers, for those who want to sniff out the platformers their parents played — is out and causing a stir among former Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, ABC, and U2 fans who, while proclaiming nearly unilateral praise for the app, divulge too much personal information. Gameloft’s labours have beefed up the heroic platformer, allowing the discount-greedy iPhone generation to enjoy the game that refocused the platform genre on gameplay and antics. General fanfare is positive with the current 1.0 build gobbling up a disproportionate number of enthused 5 star one-liner reviews at the App Store. My current favourite among them is this: “Brings me back to 1994 before all my dreams were crushed by the real world. Graphics are pimp.”

If that doesn’t scream BUY ME!, I don’t know what will.
