Arcane Empires Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Kabam's latest free-to-play is every bit as fantastic as their last one, but that's kind of the problem.

Gyro13 – Steam Copter Arcade HD Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Gyro13 slaps a fresh coat of paint (and pumps up the difficulty) to a very old classic.

I’m as agreeable to the concept of breaking blocks with a ball bounced off of a paddle as the next person, but unless it’s a “classic” or does something “different” I’m generally not going to get excited about it. That said, I think it’s safe to assume that ArkanoArena is “different” enough to pique my interest. In fact, it’s a bit more than piqued at this point.

On a basic level, it’s the same as any other paddle and brick kind of game: bounce a ball around, destroy the blocks, don’t let the ball get past the paddle. It’s the finer details that really set ArkanoArena apart. Details like using a steampunk vehicle situated on rails rather than a floating paddle and upgradable weapons and equipment. I’ll admit, it’s technically not “new” because iPad users have been able to enjoy this title for some time now, but it’s new to those of us who don’t own the Apple tablet. Regardless, it looks like something worth checking out.

ArkanoArena is available for both iPhones and iPod Touches, with 3GS and up (or equivalent) hardware, right now for $1.99. Arkanoid lovers: check this one out.

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
A weird-looking but enjoyable twin-stick shooter that's a little too repetitive to be great.

Cavorite Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
While it may look like an action-platformer at first glance, Cavorite has more to do with block-pushing (and floating) puzzles than shooting. Thankfully it's a lot of fun so that's okay.

iDroidsMania

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
iDroidsMania is a decent platformer, but the botched control scheme and overall lag make it more of a chore than a game. Skip it!
