I like these kinds of games on mobile, as they feel right for the platform. Choice based, with a menu driven interface and plenty of options with a smattering of humour. Homeless: Life Simulator allows you to take a homeless person away from the trash cans and into the business sector, turning a tramp into […]

A decent weather wallpaper app on Android? You wouldn’t have thought it would be so much to ask, but so many apps make the same mistakes time and time again when it comes to creating a weather wallpaper. They are almost always completely over the top in their design, causing far too much of a […]

Thief Lupin 2 is a cunning little game. I didn’t even realise I was addicted to it until this review began to run late. Just one more run, just a bit more treasure, just unlock one more item…that’s how it goes. A mix of simple design with mildly complex extra elements, Thief Lupin 2 can, […]

The most open of all the mobile operating systems, Android offers up a whole lot of potential for managing your phone that other systems simply can’t compete with. There are many apps that offer the ability to manage and access your phone remotely, negating the need for a USB cable to do things like transfer […]

Now, I know this is going to come across as really shallow and make me sound like one of those graphics-loving console gamers, but MailWise really is an absolutely gorgeous looking email app. You can tell that the developer has meticulously crafted every screen, as from the compose screen to the account set up assistant, […]

Guess The Word, or Tidy Up as it is otherwise known, available for Android through the Google Play Store, is an addictive and moreish treat that deserves a lot of attention as an interesting puzzle word game with added social elements and a real feeling of progression. The game stars Terry the penguin, who appears […]

simple ball iphone

I have to be honest, I wasn’t expecting much from Simple Ball. It looks almost too simple for its own good, and I thought it would be just a poorer cousin of many other similar games that I have covered here at The Smartphone App Review. Well, as it turns out, I was completely wrong, […]

Rising Empires, available for Android through the Google Play Store and the Amazon Appstore, is an incredibly in-depth turn based strategy title that feels like it was born on a SNES, which is very much a compliment.
