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, […]

We have reviewed a series of games that really don’t look like much, yet turn out to be absolute little gems full of gameplay and innovation. We are pleased to say that you can add Heartbreak, available for Android through the Google Play app […]

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. Most games like this on mobile are actually very limited affairs, but Rising Empires is anything but limited. […]

There are literally hundreds of racing games on iOS, from just about every genre of racing that you could possibly think of, yet all of them are hindered by a common obstacle: the controls. Touch screen racing was always going to be tricky, especially for the more precise games that require perfect input, but Racing […]

It always amazes me, how developers are constantly pushing the envelope in regards to what the iPad can do. It is easy to forget that many people initially dismissed the tablet as ‘just a giant iPod’, yet many of those same people can be found using their essential iPads to run their entire business. Well, […]

Imagine Space Invaders but high-tech and this is what this game is like. The gameplay is so simple; all you have to do is tilt your device left and right to shoot the enemies with the Aquator. The Aquator shoots on its own so you don’t have to worry about tapping the screen. There is […]

MonsterUp Adventures is the latest in a long line of Doodle Jump clones to hit Android, which would usually be a bad thing; after all, how many clones do we really need? However, MonsterUp Adventures manages to add enough style and substance to make this a compelling alternative to the many other games like this […]
