Crab War offers gamers a cool new challenge that goes beyond just winning a battle.

In this fun game by AppXplore Sdn Bhd you must also successfully evolve your crab army in order to take revenge on a hoard of evil reptiles.

Designed to let players really take control of their armies, Crab War is a tantalizing twist on a common concept in app gaming.

Features:

As suggested by the app’s name, Crab War is a game featuring a battle of crabs. Specifically, your role in this app is to raise up an army of crustaceans to fight back against their evil reptilian conquerors.

Your control of your crab army is very much within your hands, as it is up to you to choose what line of crab warriors they might evolve into. Successful battles lead to collection of rewards as you advance through the game.

However, my main complaint about Crab War would have to be some lag time I experienced with the app, both during loading of the app and actual gameplay itself.

While this lag didn’t have any serious consequences on my chances of successful gameplay, it did really limit my excitement about the app. The lag was significant enough to tempt me to just not play the game at times, and this problem could definitely negatively affect the appeal of Crab War.

Crab War boasts of having great graphics for a game of its type, and I’d have to say that I agree.

The color scheme of the app is bright and cheery, a fun twist to the battling theme throughout the game.

Characters of evolving crab lines are decently detailed, and it’s obvious that the app’s designers were intentional in making sure that each crab was unique in its appearance.

I also appreciated the impressive number of crab evolution options you could direct each crab line through.

In-app layout could definitely use some improvement, however, as I felt that the layout was not intuitive. Because of this, getting used to finding your way around the app takes more time than ideal

Value:

Crab War is a free app, with optional in-app purchases. These purchases are not necessary for finding success in the app, but they do probably help speed up your progress through the game.

Overall, Crab War is a different kind of game that’s fun, has a well written storyline, solid graphics and well worth checking out.

While the occasional in-app lag can be a turn-off, we expect the developers to quickly address this and those who stick through with Crab War will benefit from its fun storyline and gameplay.

Think Quick and Act Fast in Caldera

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Caldera is a simple yet challenging game that is easy to pick up, difficult to master, and impossible to put down.

Requiring rapid hand-eye coordination, this app will keep you challenged to think quickly.

Features:

With bright colors and easy controls, Caldera, from Hellstorm Studios, is a game that will appeal to many players.

The object of the game is to clear the screen of different colored paddles. This is done by matching the color of the paddles with the color of the incoming color-changing ball. The player controls the rotation of the paddles while the ball bounces from north to south.

It sounds easy, but after the first few levels, the game demands quick thinking and timing. For some, Caldera definitely will have a feeling of being a sort of “throwback” game, reminiscent of PONG.

I particularly appreciated the simplicity of Caldera. It doesn’t require a long time to complete a level; if you mess up, you’re able to jump right back in.

This is great for those times when you have a little break and want to do something to keep you occupied and entertained. As players progress through the levels, the game gets pretty challenging.

Caldera iPhone Game

Caldera iPhone Game

The game requires quick thinking and taps to control the “wheel” of paddles. It could possibly be frustrating for some, but rewarding to others.

I found myself struggling, since you can’t know when exactly a ball might change colors.  

Instead, the game requires you to make the taps in a short period of time. Still, this fast-thinking adds to the appeal of Caldera, particularly for players who appreciate good time-challenged games.

Appearance and Layout:

Similar to Caldera’s actual gameplay, the game features a simple, yet fun style.

The game incorporates bright colors that contrasts the black and white paddles and ball, lending to an overall pleasing aesthetic.

Since the actual core gameplay of Caldera is simple, there isn’t much needed in terms of appearance and layout. Navigation through the game’s menus is easy, just like the controls for the game itself.

The actual gameplay is its main feature, and the rest is icing on the cake.

Value:

Caldera is free to download with occasional advertisements and a $0.99 IAP to eliminate them. Overall Caldera is a very well crafted game that will offer up hours of entertainment.

Booty Bay Limited brings Mech Rush to the ever expanding lineup of endless runner games.

Mech Rush is well designed, tremendously fun and challenging game that really sets itself apart from average endless runners with very cool personalization features throughout.

Features:

The features of this app could pretty much be guessed just based on its name alone. Mech Rush is a mech-based free runner app that sets players free to create their own characters.

Each decision you make can alter the way your Mech conquers in-app obstacles; this makes it possible to switch up the skill sets of your character really easily to allow for maximal personalization.

In-game levels are all different, with impressive graphics throughout the different worlds you have to run/battle through.

Thankfully the controls on Mech Rush are easy to use and really make sense, particularly if you’re used to other similar endless runner games.

Bosses of each world keep this game interesting, with each one being an entirely different challenge to conquer.  Mech Rush loads and operates smoothly on compatible iOS devices; I didn’t have any problem with lag when playing this app.

Appearance and Layout:

Mech Rush iPhone App Review

Mech Rush, like many other games in its genre, doesn’t have to focus on graphics and appearance as the main contributor to its appeal.

However, the makers of Mech Rush definitely put a good deal of attention into the graphics of their game; Mech Rush’s characters and levels all have details in them that are way above par for free apps of its type.

The screen for setting your particular Mech options seems a little bit crowded, but this can be expected when considering the number of different ways that Mech Rush allows you to vary your character design.

Navigation through Mech Rush is easy as well, and for anyone who is already familiar with endless runner concepts, Mech Rush won’t be hard to get the hang of at all.

Value:

Mech Rush is a free app. It has got great graphics for a free runner game, and the controls work well for the style of the game.

Mech Rush is definitely a challenging game, but the level of difficulty is far from impossible.

While it’s hard to recommend Mech Rush over a lot of the other free runner apps on the market today, it is fair to say that this app can certainly hold its own.

In fact, for fans of Mechs, Mech Rush just might be the ideal free runner game.

Swipe Away with Elemelons

Elemelons is a diverting game that challenges your fast thinking and swiping skills. Offered for free, Elemelons by Andrea Probst features a quirky storyline and simple to understand gameplay.

Features:

Elemelons challenges players who “think they’re good at swiping” to think quickly. In this unique game of color matching fun, games start out with stationary “melons” that need to be swiped to match their correct color wall.

The game quickly speeds up to include moving melons and redirecting these melons to their correctly colored sides gets pretty challenging. Even more moving pieces are added the further into the game you get.

In-app instructions guide you in basic gameplay, and they teach you how to use some of the special power-ups offered in the app. High scores are kept as well.

Overall, the concept of Elemelons was well translated into this fun, fast-paced game. I did experience some lag with swiping melons on occasion, which was a bit frustrating particularly since quick actions are necessary to succeed in Elemelons.

Appearance and Layout:

Matching colors is the main concept in this game and because of that, there is not much need for detailed graphics. Still, the creators of Elemelons made effort to make the characters detailed enough to add a certain charm to the game.

Instructions are provided for first time players, making it very easy to understand the goal of this game. The homepage is simple as well leading to effortless in-app navigation. 

While the graphics of Elemelons are somewhat elementary, they are still fun, quirky and match well with the overall feeling of the game.

Value:

As mentioned previously, Elemelons is a free app. In-app purchases for additional lives can be made if desired, but I felt that the difficulty of Elemelons was not so great as to tempt me to make such purchases.

The graphics are quirky and simple, and gameplay in Elemelons is very easy to get the hang of. The issue with occasional in-game lag, however, is definitely a setback for the value of this app; there’s nothing more frustrating than a lagging game preventing you from achieving high scores. If this issue is corrected in a later app update, players of Elemelons would find little to complain about.

RunNoahRun Is a Promising Retro Side-Scroller for iOS

iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

RunNoahRun is a retro side-scrolling game for iPhone and iPad has potential and seems like a more controlled version of Flappy Bird.

Developed by Bereket Tewelde, this fairly new game is off to a decent start but it needs a bit of work.

Concept and Gameplay:

If you’ve read other reviews of mine here on The iPhone App Review, you’ll know I’m a stickler for tutorials, whether they’re interactive or just helpful text bubbles when you first start a game.

Tutorials make it easy for new players to pick up a game and play it without getting frustrated. Unfortunately RunNoahRun doesn’t include a tutorial, but the four buttons on the screen control your characters vertical and horizontal movement.

I truly love retro 8-bit games, but RunNoahRun was a bit of a disappointment. The menu looks squished and distorted on my 6S Plus, and actual gameplay is very choppy.

Noah stutters across the landscape, which is frustrating. Character motion definitely needs to be smoothed out in order to make the gameplay experience better.

There are four stages to unlock, but it’s unclear how to do so. I couldn’t find anything in RunNoahRun that shows your score. You don’t earn points during gameplay, but you do get three lives before the game is over. Lack of score and direction on how to unlock additional stages is irritating to say the least.

Features:

Unfortunately RunNoahRun is pretty bare on features. It doesn’t include Game Center integration so you can’t earn achievements or compete on leaderboards. I definitely think the game would benefit from powerups at the very least so players have something to actually work towards.

As I mentioned before, RunNoahRun doesn’t even keep track of your score, which is something that’s generally included in a game. Hopefully an update will include score tracking functionality so players are motivated to keep playing the game.

Value:

RunNoahRun is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. The game is supported by ads at the bottom of the screen, but they don’t seem to appear during gameplay.

Overall, RunNoahRun certainly has potential when it comes to being a retro side-scroller. The basics are there, but vital features such as scores and smoother gameplay are missing. Once these issues are addressed, this will be a great iOS game to enjoy.
