Just for Kicks, Urban Kick Academy Proves a Pleasant Little Game

When the developers at 1BigApp contacted us about Urban Kick Academy, they claimed to have had trouble getting site reviews of their debut app for iPhone and iPod touch.
Luckily, we’re pretty much game for anything around here and though I initially groaned at this endeavor thinking it would be some kind of martial arts meets street fighting fan fare, I ultimately ended up chuckling at my preconception.

Buy Buka on the App Store

Buka, It’s Great!

Hexage’s Buka is great, just like "All your base belong to us" was once great. Too great for me, though, but that's just great.
Buka is a glowing blue planet she-thing that you must maneuver past Mr.

Jumping Panda's Comparison to Super Mario Bros. is a Stretch

Jumping Panda - I can’t speak for my colleagues, but as a review writer I often come across applications or products that fall into a sort of gray area — it might be something with possible but unmet potential or hidden value that’s difficult to gauge. 

Buy Super Marble Roll on the App Store

Super Marble Roll is a Gleaming Orb of Good Times of Your iOS Device

Super Marble Roll, from iScape Games Ltd., is the typical flop, plop, drop and roll platform app. Think of it like Labyrinth, developed by Carl Loodberg of Codify AB, that AppCraver reviewed back in December or Mobigame’s Edge, which we reviewed in January.

Quick Turn: Can You Catch a Falling Star With Just Your iPhone and Good Reflexes?

1, 2, 3, Get Ready - Robot Fight!

Remember the red and blue boxing robot toys that used to be so popular? Robot Fight! by Sean Rogers is a simplistic app for iPhone and iPod touch that pretty much emulates that boxing toy.

Buy Stunt Car Racing 99 Tracks FREE on the App Store

Stunt Car Racing Goes Off-Road Scrolling

Stunt Car Racing 99 Tracks FREE is indeed free, so it will seem uncharitable of me to advise you to save your money but that’s what I’m about to do, unfortunately.
Stunt Car Racing 99 Tracks FREE, from the usually reliable Digital Chocolate, is an ordinary side-to-side scroller.

Buy Need For Cheese on the App Store

Do You Feel the Need? The Need For Cheese?

Limburger, cheddar, Monterey Jack...whatever types of fermented dairy products Nicolinux, the developers of Need For Cheese had in mind, they have released their crazy little pick-up-and-play game in the App Store.

Buy TOP GUN on the App Store

Top Gun Scores in Flight School and War

Top Gun has everything going for it: It's just been released by Paramount, a game publisher with a good rep. Iron Man, another shooter-on-rails earned good reviews when Paramount released it in December 2008.

Buy Trivial Pursuit on the App Store

Get Smart with Trivial Pursuit

Trivial Pursuit - I have always felt lucky if I won at any trivia game.  Since my friends and I are not big trivia buffs, it feels like we could play Trivial Pursuit for hours until one of us finally wins.
