Haunted memories of Biohazard keep my lips sealed regarding a person problem: I am scared to death of zombies. I’ve had dreams, waking shocks of terror, and have even run from my wife who loves to mimic the walking dead. Thanks to Tecmo’s Zombie Recycling Inc. : Moldy Green (ZRIMG), however, such overboard reactions are a thing of the past. ZRIMG is a fun and deathly cute game which pits you against the clock and obstacles to finish a gruesome task. Feel free to discuss this review of Zombie Recycling in our forums.
I’ve had a really hard time giving I Dig It: Expeditions a fair shake because I just can’t get into it. The game has traces of Boulderdash and Lode Runner, but really isn’t comparable to either. In fact, I’m not really sure how to classify the game. What I do know is that the pace is a bit slow for me, and I spent way too much time doing nothing more than going back and forth between the surface and the last place I dug. There just wasn’t enough here to capture my attention for any appreciable length of time.
To be sure, Jailbreaking is illegal. No, not the sort we talk about here – the other type – you know, that sort which has you busting out of lead-laced walls, jumping buzz saws, stealing smokes, and riffraffing around – that sort is illegal. Jailbreaker by Triniti Interactive Limited is just a violent flash-turned-iPhone game. But, the conspiracist in me tends to think of it as a message – Jailbreaking is dangerous – you might lose your neck to a buzz saw. We will see.
Piccies and more after the gap:
Penguins seem to be a real hot property in the App Store – there are lots of games featuring those cute critters. The game in question here is called PenguFlip. The aim of the game is to get your penguin to fly as high as possible before crash-landing to earth. There, sadly, your penguin friend smashes through ice and makes a reappearance as a ghost. Unfortunate, but true.
Street Fighter is the the biggest 2D fighter of them all will make a 4th-version debut on the iDevice. The time: unknown. The price: unknown. Its effectiveness on the platform: in question. The above information is informatively. Capcom are rumoured to debut the whirling fister/feeter in March complete with arcade-like controls, art direction, and a large roster consisting of the franchise’s favourite characters and some new additions.

A while back I reviewed Underground, a great side scrolling game by Chillingo which brings back the fun of the side-scrolling genre. I hadn’t really seen anything worth looking at lately until chatter about developer Origin8′s new title Robot Rampage started filling my ears. I have been a fan of their games for quite some time and had high hopes for this one. Read on to see if the app is a worthy rampage, or worthless rubbish.
Aliens are coming and the only one who can stop is you! Using your trusty World War 2 airplane upgraded with salvaged tech it’s time to take down the baddies! And may the spirit of Rock and Roll guide you in the struggle against the invaders in Roswell Fighter.
FastFinger 2 is a game that really does test how fast you can finger your screen (yes we are serious ladies and gents). While it is indeed a very basic iPhone/iPod Touch app, it can still be quite addictive. With such features as OpenFeint leader board integration and high score system, you can finally find out who has the best and fastest fingers between you and your friends (and for all the gents out there, perhaps this app can even help you impress the gals, though we make no promises).
I never had the opportunity to play the game Portal, but from everything I read I’d imagine that the developer of V is for Vortex was somewhat inspired by that critically acclaimed game. I’m not going to give V the benefit of being coined a “2D Portal”, however. The problem it is that while the concept is sound, the execution is way too basic. As the game stands right now, it feels more like an early version than a final product, at least as far as content is concerned. V really needs to be expanded on and toughened up before it’s ready for prime time.
The Horrible Vikings in Review – Loot, pillage, plunder, hold the babe for ransom and free the kitties!
I think the only people who’ve not heard of Yetisports and more specifically the little flash game that started it all: Pingu Throw are the poor sods who’ve lived under a rock for the past 6 years. The original made its debut back in 2004 and paralyzed whole companies. I admit to having spent a fair bit of time on it myself. The Horrible Vikings is a similar game which features the same basic mechanics. But this time, things are taken to a whole new level.
