Noble Nutlings Review

By Rob Rich on January 10th, 2013
Is Noble Nutlings really the next Angry Birds? That's a matter of opinion. However, it *is* a fun casual game.

Frog on Ice Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Rob Rich on December 5th, 2012
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: RIBBIT
Adjusting to Frog on Ice's somewhat unorthodox control scheme (and rather unfriendly progress saving) takes some effort, but it still manages to entertain.

Lazy Raiders Review

Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: TILT TO LOUNGE
If all archaeologists simply waited for the discoveries to come to them our museums would be awfully empty. Thankfully the idea works much better as an iOS game.

Slice the Ice Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Rob Rich on October 28th, 2012
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: KINDA SQUIRRELY
Adorable arctic vermin and loads of glacier cutting don't entirely make up for 80% of the content hiding behind a pay wall and a surprisingly awful framerate.

Get Ready to Start Bumpin’ Uglies

Posted by Rob Rich on June 19th, 2012
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Ham in the Fridge, those responsible for the well received if a bit disturbing 5 Minutes to Kill (Yourself), have been up to something. They’ve been lurking in the shadows, left to their own devices, doing something altogether unseemly. They’ve been Bumpin’ Uglies. I’ve recently had the chance to talk a bit with Brett Hummel (Creative Director) and Drew Pearson (Director, Business Development) about their odd little creation and have come away from the discussion feeling more than a little excited. Not that kind of excited.

Bumpin’ Uglies isn’t quite the depiction of debauchery that many would expect given the (awesome) title. Uglies are, in fact, these small lima bean-looking critters who are about as smart as a sack of dirt and can only get around by way of being flung. Players have to guide their ugly through a given level (32 total at the moment), gathering shinys and coins along the way, until they manage to collide with the ugly waiting at the other end. Hence the bumping. This creates a temporary whirlwind of activity, followed by the production of a number of “bumplings” possessing traits from both parent uglies. And some recessive genes, naturally. Coins gathered throughout each level can be used to unlock new level packs (3 available at launch with more to follow), more ugly parts for further customization, and special boosts (4 types available at launch) that can be used to make getting around a bit easier.

Bumpin’ Uglies is slated to release later this summer for free. If it sounds like a game worth playing (and it should), head on over to the Kickstarter page to lend a financial hand. Come on, you know you want to.

Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: NOT MUCH FUN
It sports a cool look and a nifty idea, but this game really needs to dial down the cheapness. Like a lot.
