Games are pretty popular topics for reviews here at iPhone.AppStorm, and when Apple decides to spotlight one in the App Store, we take notice. That’s why I jumped on the chance to review Dead Ahead, a zombie runner made by the same people who brought us Cut the Rope and Robbery Bob.
Although Dead Ahead is fun, easy to learn and fits most of my standards for an iPhone game, it does have one big problem. Something that looms over most apps nowadays, but this time with a new twist — one that’s just as insidious as the zombies that roam the game’s universe. Do you dare go forward to find out? (more…)
Charlie Brown and his friends in the Peanuts comic strip and cartoons deal with some depressing stuff, such as loneliness, a lack of adult presence and a failure to kick footballs. But the gang sure has some fun in Snoopy Coaster. The endless runner is molded after Mad Coaster, another favorite produced by Chillingo, but naturally, Snoopy Coaster adds that Peanuts flair by putting Snoopy in the driver’s seat of the runaway train, with Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy and Peppermint Patty filling the rows behind him.
But is this adaptation enough to define its place among the many endless runners and coaster games? Find out after the jump. (more…)
Forget Grand Theft Auto, there is a new robbery game out on the block. While this game does not have all of the action that GTA has, it does not mean it is any less thrilling.
Robbery Bob puts a new twist on previous burglary games. In this review, you will learn why this comically strategic game put this criminal as the most wanted on the App Store charts.
My parents used to own a border collie, a breed famous for their sheep herding abilities. I remember once watching the dog try to herd my sister into a corner — successfully. Scamp, that dog’s name, was the first thing I thought of when I found Sticky Sheep.
The concept is similar to what Scamp was bred to do. You’re a dog, and you have to herd sheep into these target zones. But it’s not just as simple as running and going. No, this game has a very Angry Birds-esque mechanic to the whole thing, which makes it a lot of fun to play. Don’t believe me? Let me herd you towards that more button. (more…)
Chillingo’s Contre Jour is a perfect game for chilling out, as its seller’s name suggests. This wonderfully weird title takes players on a soothing little trip through a world that’s clearly on the flipside. Contre Jour is a French term, mostly used in film and photography, that means “against daylight.” The twilight world of Contre Jour’s odd little hero fits its name perfectly.
Of course, there’s more to the story. Just click on to find out.
Among people who like playing games, I think that there are a few types. There are those who play massive, epic three-dimensional games with dedicated consoles, and then there are the rest of us who become casually addicted to gems like Rolando, Topple 2, Doodle Jump, and my new favorite, Cut the Rope, by Chillingo in conjunction with ZeptoLab.
As you have probably guessed, this review is going to be about Cut the Rope. Keep reading after the fold to see what I think of this truly charming App Store phenomenon.
