Allied Star Police
If you are not familiar with the Allied Star Police then you are not familiar with the story of Owain Weinert. This brave child was paired up with PopCap through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and the company helped turn his game concept into a full iOS title. Looking at the production values alone it would be impossible to determine that this was the brainchild of a 9 year old. It looks and plays amazingly well, proving that you don't have to be a industry veteran to have a great concept for a game.
Let's face it, dual stick shooters are nothing truly revolutionary to the iOS. On the other hand, not that many of these games feature anything that would bear any resemblance to online multiplayer. This is exactly what Deadlock: Online provides, all for the tremendously steep price-tag of absolutely nothing. As players become more successful they will get the chance to change and upgrade their gear, furthering the incentive to return, match after match. Give it a look if you can avoid getting addicted.
The age of the hack and slash game has long since came and went, but that doesn't mean that there are at least a few of us that long for the good old fashion action that only repetitive mouse clicks could provide. Tapping into the same vein as repetitive combat games like Gun Bros, this time you are armed with a broadsword that emphasizes close quarters combat. As you might expect, the title also features a wide variety of character customization, so that players can indulge their inner control freak.
The urge to climb forever higher would seem to be an interesting construct in gaming. The problem is that it could prove to be rather limiting for variety. At least this is what I felt until I check out SuperRope and had my impressions turned on their ear. Though the concept is simple, the execution is far more difficult that one might think. Give it a look, it will keep you climbing for hours.
Originally a full priced iOS release, ZombieSmash has been recently reduced in price to absolutely nothing. Melding together the genres of castle defense and the undead seem like a fairly unlikely combination, but it actually seems to work rather well. If our review is any indication, you will have four stars worth of mindless entertainment.
