Light in the Dark iOS review

I’m still literally (not literally) drowning in review codes, but when the PR hounds come a-barking, I deliver delicious meaty review-based goodness. A bit like Pedigree Chum for PR people (I have no idea what I’m talking about).

Next up under the review microscope is Dreamgate Studios’ Light in the Dark (£1.49 @ App Store, £1.49 @ Google Play), a puzzle game that tasks you with the blocking and the bending and the bouncing of light beams. More below.

Fotonica iOS review

Fotonica iOS review

A report from my Higher Physics teacher once declared: “Lewis persistently appears disinterested and is easily distracted, but consistently completes work to an incredibly high standard.” Story of my life.

Physics, protons, photons, Fotonica on the App Store. See what I did there? And that’s the first two paragraphs wrapped up in a neat little package.

Duke Dashington iOS review

Short and sweet is a phrase that’s, well, never been used to describe yours truly. I’m more of a tall and tart kinda guy.

Jussi Simpanen’s Duke Dashington (Gentleman and scholar) definitely falls into the former category, however. It’s a bite-size gem currently going for £1.49 at the App Store, and while it doesn’t last long, it’s absolutely deserving of your attention.

Dodo Master iOS review

Dodo Master iOS review

Ever seen a dodo with a teapot on its head jump on top of a giant spider, causing it to explode in a burst of orange light? Me neither. Until last night, that is.

Dodo Master comes from the mind of Semir Saleh (and Semir only, he jokes modestly in his email), and it might just be one of the best platformers the App Store has seen to date.

ALONE iOS review

ALONE iOS review

Ironically, the last game I reviewed was The Nightmare Cooperative, and in the rambling introduction I spoke of the positives of enduring negative experiences with others, whether you’re crawling through a dungeon or chasing a killer shark.

Here we're reluctantly embracing solitude and firing up the CAPS LOCK as we fly through space… ALONE.

The Nightmare Cooperative iOS review

If there’s one thing that makes a nightmarish situation more tolerable, it’s sharing the misery with others. Example: Chief Brody ended up having a great old time with Hooper and Quint in Jaws, to the extent that they almost forgot about the killer shark. Y’know, until it came back and ate Quint. Lovely.

Lucky Frame’s The Nightmare Cooperative subscribes to that notion, too, tasking you with controlling a band of adventurers as they face certain dungeon-based death.

Epic Eric iOS review

Epic Eric iOS review

I’ve heard feminists complain (yes, complain; shock horror!) that there aren’t enough female protagonists in video games, though a boob-rocking friend points out that men are – as determined by Father Nature himself – physically stronger; there’s no misogynist conspiracy, merely a natural order to things.

With Epic Eric, 232 Studios looks to appease the bra burners with the option to play as a femme bot, Epic Erica, a lady who’s every bit as capable as her penis-based counterpart.

Foodie Yama iOS review

Foodie Yama iOS review

Random lesson of the day: Yama, in Japanese, means mountain, so when people say “Mount Fujiyama”, they’re actually saying “Mount Fuji mountain”. Either “Mount Fuji” or “Fujiyama” gets the job done.

And so to Foodie Yama, an App Store title that challenges you to eat a mountain of food. Er, that’s the on-screen “you”, as opposed to you, you big meat sack.

WWE SuperCard iOS review

WWE SuperCard iOS review

I touched on wrestling many moons ago in He Is Pile Driver, and here we return to the World’s Greatest Art Form (drama! Comedy! Music! Athleticism!) in WWE Super Card (free @ App Store, free @ Google Play).

2K revealed this week that the app was downloaded a whopping 1.5 million times in its first week, so I looked out my tightest spandex, oiled myself up and challenged WWE SuperCard to a no holds barred grappling session.

The Walking Dead Pinball iOS review

Hey guy. If you’re looking for an opinion on The Walking Dead Pinball, you’ve come to the right place. See, at the time of writing, I’m number two in the world. THE WORLD *flexes finger muscles*.

Following hot on the heels of Doctor Strange and Deadpool’s outings, Zen Pinball brings Telltale’s The Walking Dead to the table (pun intended). The Walking Dead? Good. Pinball? Good. Put them together?
