Phonympics in Review – Glutton for Punishment

review-games-phonmypics-img_0049

Prior to my review of Ping Pong, for several months, I have been playing another game off and on. Phonympics is hardly the fruity sounding app, but let me tell you, it redefines fruity gameplay. I am ready to say that Ajit did not do their homework when they decided to sell this game. Phonymics could have taken more cues from the excellent Track and Field for the famicom of years back or more contemporary hints from Dance Dance Revolution. Alas, Phonmypics is just Tap Tap, without the revolution.

Manage Your Football Club in Review – Set Piece, Shoot and Score!

review-games-myfc-titlescreen

Football has fierce competition both off and on the pitch. Manage Your Football Club is part fantasy football simulator, part resource manager and part hooligan. You can get your hands dirty in any of the English football leagues from League two all the way to the top with the Premier league. If you don’t have time to read 15 pages of praise, then leave this review with the following: Manage Your Football Club is a triumph of immense proportions. It is thick with strategy, depth of play and excellent game mechanics. I am Grabbing it before I even start my proper review.

Before I get too far, I will have to apologise. Sports Director Ltd. have created a deep game – too deep to be properly covered in one review unless I were to write a full book. To explain every feature and even shallowly discuss strategies would careen this website off the server!

Anytime Pool in Review – Brunswick in my Pocket

review-games-anytimepool-pic1 Brunswick, according to their website is, “the most trusted name in pool tables and game room furniture since 1845″. They are a long standing name in billiards. Another company that has a similar reputation (although not quite as extensive) is EA. The two companies converge (I hope it is a Brunswick) on the iDevice platform in the shape of Anytime Pool. It has all the polish that you would expect from the company, but does it deliver on other gaming elements to form a truly great pool game? Continue reading…

Tiger Woods PGA Tour in Review – A Finger Stroke from Greatness

tigerwoods1

Growing up, I was considered to be a child prodigy at golf. Over the course of a single summer I trained my skills on a daily basis, preparing for a competition that if won would result in a future for me resembling the life Tiger Woods himself now lives. It was that day, I made history. In 18 holes, I scored 18 holes in one. I knew my future was set. There was nothing that was going to stop me. It was only after my completion of this magnificent feat that my parents informed me that both my ball and all of the 18 holes had magnets in them and that everyone at the local Golf n’ Stuff miniature park scored 18 holes in one every time. It was then I decided if I couldn’t be a professional golfer, I would review video games about golf. So now a week later, I am here to tell you about Tiger Woods PGA Tour from Electronic Arts. Is it possible to bring a beloved console game to your iDevice and not have it be a shell of its former self? Read on to find out.

Bass Fishing Mania in Review- Fishing Smack down

bassfishingmania1Bass Fishing Mania is another Fishing Sim from Player One Sports, which gave me a good indication this would be good for Fishing fans! I don’t fish in real life, 1993 was the last time I really went fishing with my then father-in-law and I only caught tiny little fish. He told my sister and I to throw the little guys back in the water. I wanted to catch bigger fish without the stinky smell and little did I know years later I could relive the fishing experience via technology.
