Superfrog HD Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Superfrog HD does justice to its Amiga-based ancestor, but the game's virtual controls make it a slippery little critter.

Alien Breed Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
This survival horror, top-down shooter may have been the best of its breed back in the day, but does it keep up with today's spawn?

I’ve got quite a soft spot for the home computers of old. Systems like the Commodore 64 and Commodore Amiga offered some pretty cool games at the time and certainly paved the way to the games industry that we know and love now.

So, it’s nice to see games from that era being converted to iOS, even more so when it’s done by the original developer. That’s exactly what’s happened with Squigs, a puzzle game from 1993 that bears quite a resemblance to Columns and Tetris.

Essentially, it’s a Match Three title in which players must match up the colorful Squigs in order to clear them and progress ever further. Multiple levels exist with the ability to unlock nine Squigs in all.

It’s a gametype we’ve all seen before but as is often the way, it’s entertaining stuff that’s bound to be rather addictive.

Squigs is out now priced at $0.99.

Qwak Review

Qwak Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Qwak is a frantic puzzle-platformer and a real blast to play. It might be an old game, but this duckling is sprightly and spry.

It’s the age-old developer story. Guy makes game, guy sells rights to game licenses game, guy gets game back again and remakes it for the iPhone. Okay, we’ve never heard that story either but it is the story behind retro game Qwak that’s heading to an iPhone near you.

This cute, old school adventure game was originally made for the BBC (that’s a computer not a UK TV network) 22 years ago and was then re-launched on the Amiga by Team 17, the guys who made Worms, in 1993. Qwak has lain dormant for several years until its original creator, Jamie Woodhouse, decide to bring it back to life via the iPhone. Learning the iPhone SDK as he went, Jamie has now completed the iPhone version, which he hopes will be available on the App Store very soon.

Check out the video below and you’ll see how this labor of love could quickly become the next addictive iPhone smash.

Qwak … coming soon to your iPhone from Jamie Woodhouse on Vimeo.

Update: Jamie has contacted us to point out that Qwak was licensed to Team 17, not sold.
