Cute games are ten a penny on the App Store, and Monster Capture is just one such game. The problem with all the cute, stylised games is they all tend to blur into one after a while, so lets hope that Monster Capture manages to make itself stand out from the pack. In truth, Monster […]

Now, this one came out of nowhere. After being teased at Gamescom ’11, nothing has been heard from EA regarding this game, but then here it is, and is a lot different from the Gamescom build. For a start, it is no longer a wave based shooter, but is now an online only team deathmatch […]

Freemium games are always difficult to rate, because you get more out of them the more that you spend on them. Your experience of them is likely to be hindered greatly if you spend less money on them. When reviewing such apps, I work on the basis that they should still be fun if no […]

There is nothing wrong with simplicity in games. We have reviewed many mobile games here at The Smartphone App Review, and we have applauded those games that offer simple yet innovative gameplay that manages to create depth through the pure joy of being played. Unfortunately, Sheep Impact for Android is not a joy to play, meaning […]

There’s a new app buzzing around the market lately, and it’s rumored to be a Siri competitor. An artificial intelligence app for everyday information. Could it be true? Could I have a Siri sister that might complete my iPhone 4 without upgrading to 4S? Well, yes and no. Meet Evi. A search engine like app […]

The original Reckless Racing was a good racing game in the Super Off Road tradition that, while supremely playable and good looking, was lacking a bit of focus and had an odd selection of game modes. Reckless Racing 2 aims to change all that, and the good news is that it has done this and […]

Our video reviews are a regular feature where I take a look at a game or app for the iPhone, Android or iPad and review it on video for you. The beauty of the video reviews are that they allow you to see a game or app running, and being used as it would be […]

I have a confession to make before we go into the full review of Soul Calibur for iPhone; that I am a massive fan of the series with huge expectations for this new iPhone release. To get across my slavering hunger for Soul Calibur to you, I should tell you that this is the first […]

Jazz: Trump’s Journey casually and nonchalantly shows you its quality from the first second you enter the main menu. The main character, a beautifully drawn Jazz musician tips his hat to you and adjusts his bow tie, and you get instant control over him, while you are still in the main menu. You move him […]
