 Race Though Space in a New Sci Fi Endless Runner: Glidefire

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Glidefire is a semi-endless running game for iPhone and iPad. Developed by Wonderwood Games LLC, this particular game has a great idea behind it, but performance issues might frustrate players.

Glidefire is yet another game that aims to join the genre of endless running games on iOS. While it features a decent background story, it’s easy to forget about the “goal” of the game and focus solely on completing stages and missions.

The idea behind Glidefire is to pioneer your glider ship around, over, under, and through obstacles in order to safely reach the end of the stage.

Each ship has different features and weapons, and it takes awhile to get used to the feel and mechanics of the game. The first thing I noticed about Glidefire is that the graphics are VERY sharp and crisp, but my iPhone felt like it was burning up after only a few minutes of gameplay.

It’s great to have fantastic graphics, but when your device is working to the brink of exhaustion just to run it, there are definitely performance issues. However, this may be an instance of software running ahead of hardware and we’d love to see how this slick game performs on the upcoming iOS devices.

As you play Glidefire, you’ll earn crystals and energy, which can be spent on an assortment of items such as new gliders and even new characters.

Overall, this game definitely has potential, but it’s tough to get the hang of it and difficult to follow along with the background story.

Glidefire has a few neat features, but nothing incredibly astounding. The game does allow players to have a fair amount of control over their glider thanks to upgrades, but that’s about it. There are missions that players can embark on in order to earn even more rewards, but they’re available only after all stages have been completed.

Glidefire also features dynamic playability, meaning there are new challenges to complete on a regular basis. This is something I really like about the game. Add to it the ability to compete against your friends and this game gives players reasons to keep coming back even if they’ve cleared every stage.

This sort of material helps to keep Glidefire fresh.

Glidefire is a very slick game with lots of replay value and tons of potential.

It’s available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. There’s an in-game store for players to purchase items with real money, though it’s nice to see that the game isn’t really a “pay to win” game.

Overall, Glidefire is one of those games with a few flaws but lots to build on. For example, while the graphics are fantastic, I can’t imagine the game being played on anything lower than an iPhone 5s seeing as it turned my iPhone 5 into an expensive hot potato.

On the other hand, it’s a free game that challenges players and will keep you occupied even if you have no interest in the background story. Ultimately, the choice is up to you.

Reviewed by Luke Patrick

When it comes to games for the iPhone, we can hardly get enough arcade titles under our thumbs. We absolutely adore any title that has us competing with others (or ourselves) for a high score, especially if it comes with a unique premise, and buckets of charm. 

Thankfully, Jumpy Jester, from Gregory Parton, delivers on all fronts!

Jumpy Jester is fresh off the press, and, with its flashy colors, high-flying fun, and endless challenges, we guarantee it won’t disappoint.

And for our full review, you need only slide down below the break.

The idea behind Jumpy Jester is simple, so much so that it takes mere seconds to someone how to play it.

You’ll be directing a small clown on the screen. When you see an emery approaching on the sort of conveyer belt at the bottom, tap the screen to jump. And that’s it! 

There are no other tricky mechanics involved, no real challenges other than this one. And in a way, that’s really quite refreshing. It takes us back to a time when games like Pong were king, with only a single button press and a whole lot of hope. 

In this way, you’ll be combating your way from low-score to high-score. The longer you can stay in the action without hitting one of the oncoming baddies the better. It’s tough at first, and it only gets harder. Occasionally, the game will throw you a bone or two in the form of a power up or extra life. But for the most part, you’ll be relying an awful lot on your sharp reflexes.

Here’s the kicker, though: A lot of what Jumpy Jester has to offer isn’t so much about reflex as much as it is pattern creation. The game’s enemies are delivered on a mostly consistent, patterned basis. To avoid them, just tap at the right time, and then keep tapping on queue.

This is great at first, and other great games have certainly done this, but after a while it isn’t quite as exciting as a more random approach.

The controls, though simple, also feel a little soggy. They aren’t as snappy as we might like, making this approach to gameplay feel slightly slower.

All in all, though, it’s still a challenge, and one you can return to quickly and often.

At the end of the day, though, Jumpy Jester cannot be beat for the value. It’s still an engaging arcade title, and though it isn’t totally hiccup free, it’s a far cry from most.

Take it from us: If you’re looking for an addictive new title to add to your iPhone’s repertoire, you could do a lot worse than Jumpy Jester.

Top New and Updated Free iPad Games by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

It’s no secret that smartphones and tablets are really game consoles. The fact that you can do other things with them is merely coincidental.

In that vein we’d like to point you to some of our favorites that imbue the following key characteristics; they have to be released or updated withing the last 30 days, they are free to download, they do not have exorbitant IAPs – nothing over $9.99, they make good use of the iPad increased real estate, and, of course, they are fun to play!

 Top New Free iPad GamesSo here are 7 standouts in no particular order.

 

The Tower – In this fun puzzle app from Ketchapp you’ll be required to concentrate and you’ll need quick reflexes. You are tasked with building the tallest tower in the world. While playing against your friends or strangers you’ll be tapping the screen to carefully place ever-smaller blocks atop one another so they balance and let you keep going higher.

But watch out! As you go higher the pieces you’re balancing keep getting smaller so to properly place them, as you’d expect, the game gets harder and harder.

 

Frozen Free Fall – Disney’s match-3 game derived from its hit movie, Frozen, features great graphics and, of course, your favorite Frozen characters to make it even more fun to play. Your game-playing adventure will take you through the Kingdom of Arendelle with Anna, Elsa and others. Without opting for any IAPs you get hundreds of puzzles to work on and can unlock additional characters as you do.

This game is a terrific addition to your game rotation and will surely be a favorite of all the Disney fans in your family.

 

Swing Copters – If you’re jonesing for a Flappy Bird clone that you can spend some time with, try this one. It has pretty good gameplay on the iPad and will keep you entertained. The difficulty level is a bit more than we’d like but if you stay with it you can definitely improve and get some decent runs out of it.

 Top New Free iPad Games

We would like to see a simpler mode to start with, which would help those who, maybe because they’ve been living under a rock, have not already learned how to play these types of games.

The swinging obstacles add to the appeal of the game and make it worth a download.

 

Cheating Tom – Can you get through school simply by cheating? Not the greatest message for kids but definitely a fun game to play. With over 100 levels of assorted challenges, from copying answers from your fellow students to outsmarting teachers, this game will keep you on your toes and entertained.

Reactions from the other characters in the game add to the fun as you collect powerups and do your best to cheat your way to straight A’s.

 

Subway Surfers – Truth be told this is probably one of the most addictive games some of us have ever played, and played, and played. It has terrific replay value and through the use of special challenges, daily and weekly specials, and long running challenges that might take days or even weeks to complete, you just keep coming back for more.

We really like this one (can you tell?) and hope that other developers take a cue from how they are able to start out pretty easy but then build up the difficulty without ever becoming impossible.

 Top New Free iPad Games

Tower Boxing – This retro-styled game is just a ton of fun. What makes it so much fun? We don’t know about you but the most fun we’ve every had was when we were intentionally breaking something.

And breaking something big is better than breaking something small.

So what can be more fun than knocking down a skyscraper! Seriously, you need to download this free game and start punching. You won’t regret it.

 

Piano Tiles (Don’t Tap The White Tile) – For those of you who like a game that requires concentration and focus, Piano Tiles is sure to scratch your itch. You’ll need to complete the game to get a high score so stay with it. You’ll also improve as you go and learn to stay in the zone.

One aspect of this game that we appreciate is that the audio tracks feature classical pieces such as Fur Elise and Ode to Joy. They should probably open this up to other genres or even your own playlist, but we’re not complaining.

Reviewed by Philip Chan

Sudoku In Space is a unique game developed by Napland Games, LLC that provides hours of puzzles with a unique gameplay experience. Currently offered for free through the iTunes Store, Sudoku In Space is sure to please Sudoku enthusiasts of all ages.

Features: star Play Sudoku In Space for a New Twist on an Old Classicstar Play Sudoku In Space for a New Twist on an Old Classicstar Play Sudoku In Space for a New Twist on an Old Classicstar Play Sudoku In Space for a New Twist on an Old Classicstar Play Sudoku In Space for a New Twist on an Old Classic

At its core, Sudoku In Space is a lot alike any other Sudoku game in the App Store. What’s special about this game, however, is the option to play the game with colors instead of numbers.

This new twist in gameplay can even be a challenge for experienced Sudoku players. Another great feature of Sudoku In Space is the included tutorial to help learn the basics of the game.

The “beginner” levels even start out as a 2×2 grid for those new to Sudoku in order to help them hone their skills. After those initial 10 levels, the other 450 levels are the standard 3×3 layout with different degrees of difficulty.

With a total of 460 levels, Sudoku In Space offers a good amount of content to keep you busy. The game also includes a rating system, so there’s motivation to retry levels faster and with fewer mistakes.

Sudoku In Space is one of those quirky games that has its own personality. It does well in bringing character to the blandness of basic Sudoku.

However, with so many popular games featuring a more streamlined and minimalistic design, Sudoku In Space takes a step in the other direction.

Even on the larger iPhone 5S screen, the game’s layout and sizing of the buttons/ icons are a little crowded and small, making for a more cluttered playing experience.

Overall, Sudoku In Space looks like a computer game made in the late 90s, but without any of the nostalgia.

In terms of value, Sudoku In Space is a refreshing game that isn’t built around in-app purchases. Instead, its value is built around the actual features and content of the game.

Although there are advertisements within the game, they’ve been integrated very well. For those that wish to remove the ads, it is only a one time purchase of $0.99 cents.

Sudoku In Space is packed with a lot of content, and it’s all for free. As a whole, I highly recommend this game to anyone looking for a fun and challenging Sudoku experience.

 Pro.Calendar Helps You Keep Everything under Control

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

We’ve reviewed quite a few agenda apps here at The iPhone App Review, most have good intentions but poor execution. What I mean by this is many apps try to do too much and pack in too many features, often resulting in a clunky and cluttered interface that’s frustrating to use.

Pro.Calendar is a fantastic tool for users who need to keep track of many things from day to day. Developed by LightArrow Inc., this handy iOS app is much cleaner and more organized than other apps of its kind.

Concept and Functionality: star Pro.Calendar Helps You Keep Everything under Controlstar Pro.Calendar Helps You Keep Everything under Controlstar Pro.Calendar Helps You Keep Everything under Controlstar Pro.Calendar Helps You Keep Everything under Controlstar Pro.Calendar Helps You Keep Everything under Control

I’ll admit that I initially felt like Pro.Calendar would follow the same trend, but I was very pleasantly surprised to see that it’s a very sharp app that’s clean and easy to navigate.

If you want to get the most out of Pro.Calendar, you’ll have to give it permission to access your iDevice’s calendars, contacts, reminders, and location. This is purely for organizational purposes, and refusing access to this information will only impact performance slightly.

Once you optionally import existing information such as appointments and reminders, Pro.Calendar readily shows its strengths by displaying your tasks and appointments in a format that’s very easy to read and digest. You can view your schedule in agenda format, as well as daily, weekly, monthly, and even yearly.

Pro.Calendar goes far beyond a calendar and reminder tool. You can log important information such as health and fitness statistics, incorporate checklists and to dos, manage projects, travel information, and so much more. It’s truly an all-in-one app that covers everything.

In terms of overall thoughts about Pro.Calendar, the app itself is incredible. Pretty much anything you can think of is able to be tracked, logged, scheduled, and noted. It can easily replace a handful of other apps you use, which is even nicer.

Pro.Calendar includes far too many features to list, but there are a few which are worth highlighting. First, the app allows you to keep track of a “hot list”, which can be your favorite items to keep track of with ease. This is great for things you don’t want to have buried in your agenda.

Also, Pro.Calendar supports device-to-device sync so users can keep data on multiple iOS devices the same by using a free Dropbox or Box account.

The number of features it includes and the fantastic layout make Pro.Calendar my personal choice when it comes to a comprehensive agenda app.
