When the first Ravensword: The Fallen King screenshots and trailers appeared on the net, I thought: “This is it! This is the Holy Grail!” And as the time came closer and closer to the release date, with all of the publicity around the game, my interest really peaked. Just a little over 2 weeks ago I finally got my hands on the press build of this genre-bending game.

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.
Zenonia is widely accepted as one of the most successful RPGs on the AppStore and, as any successful game, it is bound to have followers. Well, Digital Chocolate, one of the better developers on the market, has recently released their view on the concept – Fantasy Warrior: A Tale of Good And Evil.
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.
I hope everyone knows that fairy tales, much like faeries, are not sacred. If you are a Peter Pan fan, you know that Tinkerbell is mischievous and intensely jealous. So, when the faery gets into the tale, things go amiss. Incidentally, Red Rage is full of faery – at least as it applies to tossing our image of the sweet, yet bewildered little hero to the wolves. Red Rage is a violent and creatively-simple personal rendition of the classic, yet ridiculous tale, Little Red Riding Hood, but remade for fans of Inkvaders and Zombieville USA. This shy-of-a-dollar game comes from the contrite half of CDE-Humble Gaming, the makers of the excellent time-manager, Anna Montana.
***UPDATE*** Humble are addressing many of the issues which are pointed out in this review and look to submit 1.1 by Friday in hopes of a refresh. I will post updated impressions in this review when I receive the updated version.
Put your 300 pennies away this weekend and spend it on something that will make you look pretty. Tag Games’ hit, Car Jack Streets (CJS) will be free the entire weekend, starting … on the weekend. While the weekend has various connotations depending on your station in life; that is to say, for university students, weekends start after Thursday’s Pub Night is over, and for office workers in Seoul, the weekend is that space between 3am and 6am on Sunday mornings. For the rest of us, let’s just hope that Tag Games are not Korean.
Take a look at TMA’s exhaustive CJS review and then go for it – no harm in downloading a free app! But if you cannot wait, by all means, whip back out your 300 coppers and have at it a bit early.
There’s something immediately visually appealing about Samurai: Way of the Warrior. Yes it’s got a bit of a cartoonish look, cell shaded and very reminiscent of the recent Zelda game for the Nintendo DS – but at the same time, it’s a bloody and violent game, far more visceral than you’d get from big N. What kind of game does this all add up to? Read on to find out.
Stealth game. To some, those two words mean a world of suspense, where every move contributes to your destiny. Will you get caught, or will you persevere? To others, those words mean slow, boring action, coupled with endless trial and error. Fortunately, I fall into the first group, so when Silent Swords hit the App Store, I was all over it like Oprah on a cupcake*.
