It’s Game Week here at iPhone.AppStorm, and all this week we’re going to have tons of reviews, giveaways and other good stuff, all centered around the gaming world!

A little over a year ago, Shaun Inman introduced Flip to the iOS screen. Intergalactic war was drawing to a close, and Flip was the last rocket to roll off of the assembly line. Unfortunately, the ship became trapped in a star’s gravity field, and Flip had to escape before both he and the ship were swallowed by the star.

Flip managed to escape as the ship spiraled into oblivion, but the resulting stellar shockwave leaves little time for celebration. Shaun Inman’s Flip’s Escape reunites players with the star of The Last Rocket and his computer companion as he flees the impending wave, avoiding speeding astroids and collecting their orbital power ups. But does the second chapter of Flip’s adventure hold the same thrills and charm as the first, or is it a cosmic dud? Let’s find out. (more…)

If you’re looking for a racing game that stands out from the crowd and is highly addicting, Slingshot Racing could be the perfect fit. With a style that harkens back to the days when arcade games were popular, but also reminiscent of the Angry Birds series, Slingshot Racing will leave you wanting more.

So, does this game have the potential to be as popular as Cut the Rope or Temple Run? Read on to decide if you’ll be sleeping at the wheel or racing to the finish line! (more…)

The zookeeper concept has long been a staple of puzzle games, and it can be found not just on iOS, but on multiple consoles, as well. The addition of Zookeeper Battle to the family of games brings new interactivity not usually found in puzzles, as you play the same puzzle, but against opponents from all over the world.

How does this new Zookeeper game stand up against its predecessors? Is it different enough to set itself apart, or is Zookeeper Battle the same old match-three with a new gimmick? We’ll take a look at the gameplay and the battle system and see if it’s worth the download. (more…)

There are games of many sorts available on the iPhone. Some go by names as outlandish as The Impossible Game, which is designed to be simply unbeatable. Others, however, tend to have more official titles, such as N.O.V.A. This sort of game is just Gameloft’s iOS iteration of Halo though, and there’s not much more to it than that.

Amazing graphics aside, iOS developer myp” decided to go minimal with his game. It’s fully universal and has been optimized for the Retina iPad — though there are elements that have a little pixelation, like the start screen. This game is not like anything you’ve ever seen before, and while originality is generally something I seek in what I’d deem a good game, The Simple Game still has its share of assets that make it an entertaining puzzle. I’ll take a more in-depth look at it after the break though, so why don’t you join me? (more…)

The iPhone is no stranger to remakes of popular games from the ’80s. Some turn out to be lazy cash-ins, barely updated or reworked for touch controls and a small but high-resolution screen, while others seem to pull out all the stops in a bid to draw players both new and old. Robots and Pencils’ update to the 1984 hit Spy vs Spy thankfully falls into the latter camp, but it’s not without its quirks or shortcomings. Let’s take a look at them after the jump.  (more…)

Social network games have become extremely popular in part due to their simplicity. For the same reason, however, some fans grow bored after a period of infatuation.

Keri Racing, named for the ability to race fantastical feathered “keris,” plans to turn that trend on its head by providing plenty of variety in exchange for long-term loyalty. If you’re nostalgic for the good old days when your favorite SNG wasn’t just a grind, Keri Racing might just be the cure you’re looking for. (more…)

The people at Adult Swim aren’t right in the head. Sure, their nighttime lineup for Cartoon Network is pretty sweet, but the games they make for the iOS platform are just nutty. Should I be surprised to discover that Amateur Surgeon 2 makes me feel a bit uncomfortable?

Yes, it’s a lot of fun to play, and sure, it’s quick and fast paced. But at what cost? Will you come out of the game having lost a little bit of your decency and maybe even your sanity? Join me as I see how deep down the rabbit hole we can go. (more…)

When I heard that EPOCH. was made using the UnrealEngine, the same engine used to create the high-resolution graphics of the award winning Infinity Blade apps, I was excited to give it a try. While I’ve always enjoyed shooter games and great graphics, my one concern was that the game might have an underdeveloped storyline. Some games can still be fun with a weak storyline if the gameplay is captivating enough, so my question was, what approach did the developers of EPOCH. choose to take?

Playing as a robot soldier in a post-apocalyptic world, this game fits in with so many doomsday games that are popular right now. So, was it all explosions and stunning details but lacking in depth? Read on to find out. (more…)

It’s hard to improve on the slingshot style of games already out for iOS. Angry Birds and others like it already have that niche pretty well locked up. To get attention, a game will have to bring something more than cute critter flinging action to your fingertips. If the game boasts an engaging story, that’s even better.

Catapult King tries to hit all the slingshot buttons, while creating a fun medieval storyline and a small cast of entertaining characters. With fun, fresh gameplay and a new take on the physics puzzler, Catapult King is trying to take the slingshot game formula to new heights. But does it knock down the competition or miss the mark? (more…)

Zynga. Say the name, and some people turn up their nose in disgust. These are the people who brought us FarmVille and CityVille, right? Who wants anything to do with them?

Well, you might change your mind once you check out Horn. Built using the Unreal Engine, the game is part Infinity Blade, part The Legend of Zelda and tells a pretty interesting story. But is it worth your hard earned cash? Let’s go on an adventure and find out. (more…)
