Castle Frenzy

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

A 3D Defend the Castle clone, with interesting special weapons like a Hydra, a Freeze Ray, and Fireball. Like other games in the genre, you primarily pick up an attacker with your finger and swipe him off the screen, but you can also slam them against the castle wall or hit them with a special weapon. There are various in-game challenges that are displayed before each level, which is a nice addition.

Flashback

Appropriately titled, this classic game is back and they had me at “Hello” on this one, due to the nostalgia factor. The same is true for many people, as this was a sleeper hit on the Amiga and Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Unfortunately, the controls on this version blow. I can’t even move were I want to. C’mon, peoples, this is a Game Design 101-level fail. I was so excited to see this released and so disappointed in its implementation.

Equilibrio

Tilt the iPhone, jump over stuff, delete. The balls don’t spin, the physics lack subtlety, and the graphics are not great. Maybe I’m being too harsh, because forum-goers tend to like it, but I sure don’t.
