Sonic Dash Review

What is Sonic Dash? Sonic Dash is a running game that follows the same basic principle as older games like Temple Run, in the sense that there are 3 lanes you run along, and you move side to side to both avoid obstacles and collect rings. The main difference is obviously the Sonic aesthetic, which is also probably its biggest selling point. If you really like Sonic as a character, or enjoy the style of his games, then Sonic Dash is probably the best running game for you to get. Read Full Review

Sonic Dash App Review

What is Sonic Dash? To be frank, Sonic Dash isn’t really much different any of the Sonic games that have been released in the past few years. It’s all about going fast on scenic routes that have obstacles and enemies, collecting rings as you try to reach the end. By swiping left and right you can move side to side, or you can jump over or slide under obstacles depending on what kind they are. If all else fails, you can use your attack to smack enemies out of your way. It’s pretty much just a standard Sonic the Hedgehog game, but for mobile devices. Read Full Review

Jelly Shift App Review

What is Jelly Shift? The premise of this game is a simple one; you control a block of jelly as it slides along a straight path, but there are several obstacles along the way. You have to shape the jelly properly to fit through each obstacle before you hit it. All you have to do is make it through all the obstacles until you get to the end of the stage. Naturally, as you reach further levels, the difficulty will increase, providing a greater challenge. Read Full Review

Aquapark.io App Review

At its core, Aquapark.io is a fairly straightforward racing game. The only difference is, instead of cars on a track, you control a person on a waterslide, racing down the waterpark staple as you try to beat many other competitors on the same slide. Essentially, that’s all there is to the game. It has most of what you would expect in a racing game; various ‘tracks’ and obstacles, as well as fun little additions like speed boosters. Unlike most traditional racing games, you can bump your competitors off of the slide if the opportunity arises, helping you on your way to victory. You can also jump off of a higher point on the waterslide and land on a lower part of it, taking a shortcut to the bottom. Read Full Review

Flip Water Bottle Review

What is Flip Water Bottle? As you may have surmised from the title of the game, this app is all about flipping bottles. In particular, you flip bottles onto an endless ladder of platforms, so in reality it is just a platform jumping game, but with a half empty water bottle as the medium. That said, it is quite the simple game, since it has very limited modes and things to do in general. You flip bottles onto platforms, forever until you miss. That’s all there is to the entire game.

Smashy Road: Wanted Review

What is Smashy Road: Wanted? Smashy Road is essentially a driving survival game. In a very Grand Theft Auto kind of way, you are wanted, and the longer you evade the one’s chasing you, the more dangerous the pursuers will become. At first it’ll be the police, but eventually it’ll move onto SWAT and even the Army. You drive one of 90 different vehicles, each with their own characteristics and handling, to smash the enemy and evade them as best you can. Its an endless survival game, so you drive until you are defeated and you get a high score. Read Full Review

American Block Sniper Survival App Review

What is American Block Sniper Survival? This is a pixel block game, like Minecraft, but you use a sniper rifle to fight off waves of enemies and survive as long as you can. You could say it’s pretty much the graphics and mechanics of Minecraft but with guns. That said, the game is mostly just you running around shooting blocky bad guys and vehicles with a rifle.

Rocket Sky! App Review

What is Rocket Sky!? As you probably surmised, this game revolves primarily around rockets, but the objective of the game is to launch those rockets as high into the sky as possible. As you get higher and higher, you’ll be able to unlock more and more upgrades for your rocket, which will in turn allow it to reach even greater heights. Ultimately, that’s all this game really consists of; repeating that same loop of gameplay over and over again for as long as it satisfies you. Read Full Review
