• Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage Review

    Developed by indie studio Nitrome, Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage is an impressive touchpad puzzler vetted by Rovio in its first step towards becoming a mobile publisher. Much like Rovio’s own celebrated top-seller, Angry Birds, Icebreaker is built upon simple mechanics that continue to expand in fun and challenging ways. It can get tricky at times, but Nitrome’s debut is undoubtedly one of the best iOS games to release this year. Unlike most puzzlers, Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage tells a narrative, albeit a fairly superficial one. Set in a vibrantly colored Norse kingdom, players assume the role of an eager apprentice looking to become a fully-fledged icebreaker. However, what seems like…

  • Happy Hotel Review

    Happy Hotel is the second iOS game from Stockpile Studio, the same developer behind Cloud Castle. It is a free simulation game available on the App store since April 19, 2013. Seemingly being a similar business sim as Cloud Castle, Happy Hotel does not inherit the same refreshing style. On the contrary, it nostalgically carries the attributes found in some of the earliest browser-based social simulation games, as in genre, gameplay and graphics. The gameplay aims at being wholly casual and unchallenging. The hotel will be running on its own, and visitors who go to the hotel will pay you automatically. You just need to tap on the pop-up coin…

  • GolfStar Review

    GolfStar is a 3D sports game developed by Com2uS behind Tiny Farm and Derby Days. Based on physics, it involves players in a realistic yet enjoyable golfing experience unseen before. The beauty of 3D graphics doesn’t show noticeably beyond the customizable protagonists. Aside from the rotating perspectives and the detailed fountains and other surrounding stuff, few things could suggest that 3D visuals are involved. That was partially due to the large size of the courses in question and simple designs of the interface. In this game, players follow the quests, challenge NPCs, obtain experience and level up to unlock more functions, including 10-player matches and other PVP modes. Those matches…

  • Fish Out of Water! Review

    Fish Out of Water! is a causal ocean-themed throwing game from Halfbrick, a creative team behind classic games like Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride. Featuring amazingly beautiful graphics, dulcet background music as well as simple and fun gameplay, the game has the capability to draw in gamers of all ages and create another big splash with the interesting array of cute maritime creatures. Just as earthbound human beings have long delved into the scheme of nature to realizing the dreams of soaring high into the sky (even flying through universe) and diving underwater thousands leagues deep, fishes (and also other sea creatures) cherish a romantic dream too. They are wishing…

  • Eden to Green Review

    Eden to Green, created by iNiS and published by Zynga, is a new tower defense game for iOS and Android. Unlike many other games of its kind, this game asks you not only to defend but also to expand. The battles take place between plants and machines in the world of Eden. Your top priority is to defeat the machines and restore green in the barren lands occupied by them. When the whole land is revitalized, and a world of flourish plants and flowers comes into being, you will be crowned as the ultimate champion. This game provides two separate lands: the west Eden and the east Eden. The former…
