    1-bit Ninja Review

    1-bit Ninja

    It is odd how a game can emulate a classic so unashamedly and completely, and yet fail to achieve anywhere near the same level of quality as its inspiration. Many games are influenced by Super Mario World, but 1-bit Ninja has its eyes... more

    Contre Jour Review

    Contre Jour

    Contre Jour manages to successfully ape some of the App Store's most popular mechanics, but it doesn't really know what it wants to do with them. Contre Jour is like an greatest hits collection of popular iOS games, all... more

    Paper Monsters Review

    Paper Monsters

    A charming little game lacking the creativity its presentation suggests is going to be present. Fun while it lasts, but a little too safe to be considered one of the genre's best on iOS. It doesn't take much for a new iOS game to gain a nice bit of hype. Paper... more

    Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 Review

    Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1

    Sonic 4 does a fantastic job of recreating the retro Sonic experience that defined many a childhood, but ironically this could be considered its biggest shortcoming. The title screen sets the precedent. Sonic poses behind a familiar looking... more

    Mos Speedrun Review

    Mos Speedrun

    Probably the closest thing the App Store has to Super Meat Boy, which is high praise indeed. Mos Speedrun taps into a very pure vein of gaming: completing 2D levels as... more

    Toki Tori Review

    Toki Tori

    The touchscreen control mechanic might not sit so well with old school fans, but for newcomers with a patient disposition, Toki Tori is a real treat from the App store. At first glance Toki Tori looks like a less green, egg-shaped version of... more

    KAMI RETRO Review

    KAMI RETRO

    With more than 60 stages to complete, Kami Retro will take some time to beat. This is a quirky little title which stands out in a market swamped with clones. Think of Lemmings crossed with indie WiiWare game LostWinds and you've got... more

    Tiny Wings Review

    Tiny Wings

    Tiny Wings' high position in the App Store charts is quite simply because it's one of the best games released this year. While Nintendo President Satoru Iwata attempted to devalue the mobile gaming... more

    Ms. Splosion Man Review

    Ms. Splosion Man

    Tobe & Friends: Hookshot Escape Review

    Tobe & Friends: Hookshot Escape

    It's an endless runner with all the addiction of a Doodle Jump, but it has a sharp, decidedly retro twist that makes it more than just a fluffy, throwaway time-waster. The hookshot - the mythical do-all superweapon from Zelda - is not the only... more
