Zombies are on the attack! Why? Who knows — it’s just what they do. But you can vaporize them before they takeover the city and turn it in to their smorgasbord.

Mixing strategy and shoot-‘em-up attacks, Dead Stop declares you the protector of the people. The gore factor is low and the art cartoonish, making this one game that’s as appealing to all ages as it is simple to play. (Don’t confuse simple for easy, though. These flesh-eaters put up a fight!)

Is Dead Stop a feast or famine when it comes to being fun? Find out after the break. (more…)

Just going from here to there, especially when here and there are daily destinations, can become more than a little monotonous. The city you live in is no longer somewhere special but just a place you pass through everyday.

Now imagine you’re seeing your town for the first time and trying to navigate your way through it with only the knowledge of your immediate surroundings. A common video game trope, Fog of World is bringing this sort of discovery to the real world. As you travel a map of your neighborhood or city, the fog lifts, and you discover your world all over again. (more…)

EA’s annually-refreshed series of FIFA games are an impressive achievement for the developer. Next to Call of Duty, the year’s FIFA game is one of few products to regularly receive overnight queues and widespread sell outs, at least in the UK. And the success of the series is far from unjust with even the most minimal fans of the sport being able to have a great time in the competitive setting.

Sport games aren’t new for iOS but, to be honest, they aren’t something I’ve opted for in the past. However, when FIFA 13 happened to be a launch-optimised title for the iPhone 5, I decided to give it a go with some impressive results. Let’s take a look! (more…)

Minecraft is one of my favourite games and this love was born out of playing the Pocket Edition, a simpler, mobile version of the incredibly popular PC and Mac game.

Back in December, we took a look at Minecraft Pocket Edition but, since then, the game has received some pretty significant content update, as is the nature of Minecraft. Let’s take a look at the key additions of the game and perhaps adjust our thoughts in light of the slew of updates. (more…)

There are many who enjoy using the phrase “back in the day of gaming” to describe Nintendo’s dominance of video games, from the NES and SNES to the GameBoy. The Japanese corporation did indeed know what it was doing with video games, and it helped start a revolution. Nowadays, the classics like Super Mario and Donkey Kong Country are available on the Wii, Nintendo’s modern-day console, and also in emulators. But since such tools aren’t officially available on the iPhone, alternatives are valuable.

One such game is Soosiz, a 2D platformer developed by Touch Foo. If you’ve never heard of them, you may know of Swordigo, their variant of Zelda. Soosiz came first though, and it delivers its share of fun. Shall we find out how thorough the adventure is? (more…)

There are many racers out there for iOS that all have their own unique mechanics. This, however, is a pretty different one from the bunch. With a top-down view and arcade-style gameplay, this isn’t what you’d expect from a fully-fledged racer.

Mini Motor Racing is a fast-paced frenzy to the finish in small, chubby vehicles that scream cuteness. It has solid visuals, great gameplay and a heck of a load of fun in store. Is it good enough to oppose other similar games like Reckless Getaway? Let’s find out. (more…)

With a name like My Singing Monsters, you know exactly what you’re getting in a game while still having no idea what you’re actually getting into. You’re going to be raising some singing monsters, but what can you expect from a game with such an absurd premise?

What you can expect is constant surprise and hilarity mixed into the familiar mechanics of Farmville type RPGs. But is what My Singing Monsters brings to the table enough to wake up an otherwise stale genre, or will the monster gimmick fall flat? (more…)

If you have an iPhone, had an iPhone, have thought about having an iPhone, known someone who had an iPhone, or even are only vaguely aware of the existence of the iPhone, it’s unlikely that you’ve escaped without some sort of cursory awareness of Angry Birds, the physics-based phenomenon whose popularity has hung around only slightly too long to still be considered a “fad.” Rovio first released Angry Birds in 2009, and has since pushed out all kinds of updates and new chapters, but the premise has more or less always been the same: load a bird into a slingshot, and launch it in an attempt to topple a piggy-inhabited edifice of questionable structural integrity.

Well today, all of that changes. The piggies want the spotlight now, and Rovio has given it to them in a brand new iOS game called Bad Piggies. Bad Piggies is very much set in the same world as Angry Birds, but the game is quite different. Grab a cup of coffee and hit the jump to take a look at this brand new physics-based puzzler. (more…)

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 lot of RPG games boast stunning 3-D graphics and vivid gameplay environments, but Lili sets a new standard. This adventure game features a main character who’s tasked with completing some challenging find-and-retrieve tasks on a very beautiful and mysterious island, one populated with strange beings in possession of a very quirky brand of humor.

In other words, when the game isn’t making you work hard to lock in the next achievement, or making your eyes widen at the sight of detailed characters and lush island scenery, it will have you chuckling to yourself in amusement. Let’s take a look. (more…)

Tower defense games have become all the rage with iPhone users. There are still plenty of old century warrior games, but Kingdom Rush is a truly great example of innovation in this field. For this game you start out building structures to defend your kingdom from incoming attackers.

You’ll need to use strategy and some lucky timing to advance forward into the worlds. Game dynamics are similar to any multiform TD RPG, where you don’t control a single character, but entire groups of your army. The music and graphics also fit amazingly well into the theme of ancient kingdoms. If you love strategy RPG games, this is a title well worthy of the cost. (more…)
