Anomaly Warzone Earth IPhone Review (by Darrell Diaz)
Love this game! Played the Mac App Store Version and couldn’t wait for the iOS versions to arrive. Bought as soon as the iPhone and iPad versions were available. Just finished level 4 on the iPhone, will try on the iPad later tonight. I wish it were a universal app, but since its priced so affordably, I’m not complaining. I’d love to see more games from this developer. Well worth the wait!
     
Excellent App (by Richard Rodriguez)

AWESOME… Flick Soccer is Deadball tweaked with Flick Golf… Did I say AWESOME?! ;)
     
Outkicked Flick Kick (by Djflippy)
Flick Kick Football is one of my all-time favorite casual games and I believe the guys at Full Fat Games may have surpassed that high watermark set by PikPok with their new title, Flick Soccer!

First and foremost, they’ve added a fair number of skill-based techniques that really allow you to finesse your shots. They have included their signature aftertouch move, carried over from their golf titles, and it really gives you that extra edge over the goalkeeper. Who, by the way, is not made of cardboard, but is fully animated and fairly competent. Their are additional targets moving around simultaneously with the scoring target that potentially increase your score or provide additional shots. The game is just packed with little touches that put it over the top and make it even more addictive.

The gameplay is great and so are the graphics. Multiple animated players block your strike path in a huge number of configurations, making each shot unique. The pitch, the players, the stadium, and the goal all look fabulous. Again, little touches like the glowing crossbar in the crossbar mode and the smoothly gliding multiplier targets really sell this.

Most of the modes you would expect are there, save multiplayer, and it just seems like I could play this game for months without tiring of it…and I probably will. Cheers to Full Fat crew for their efforts. Another corker, here.

Great game (by Pickledrelic)
Personally I’m not a fan of using the tilt-to-move functionality.

That aside, the game is polished and fun… well worth the price.

Always happy to support Kairosoft! (by I010011010)
This is one of the few app devs that hasn’t gone crooked by attaching AIP to everything. They design and balance their games to be fun instead of finding ways to bleed more cash from players. And their games are consistently entertaining.
     
Kairosoft is the best of the best (by Dan Bubish)
Once again, Kairosoft doesn’t disappoint. It’s worth the wait Kairosoft fans. This game is clearly some of their best work. I highly recommend ALL their games.

Finally, but not without flaws (by Xantarnet)
Finally a action rpg with high res art, not just zoomed way out, or blurry (inotia 3). Also the UI is fairly minimal(unlike across age). Having 4 character story lines allows for replays even with the same world map.

Now with all that said there are some flaws. 4 way movement is a major problem, I did not like Across Age’s 8 way movement, but it at least allowed for diagonal movement. This movement scheme does not. The skill tree for the berserker class is nearly non-existent and (as far as I know) no clear reference for the in game achievements that also grant stat changes. I would have preferred the ability to distribute. Attributes after each level, which the game seems to take care of for you.

All in all it is a pretty good game, does it beat other games in it’s field? Sort of, it’s UI is nice. Quite better than some others. It is honestly retina/iPad resolution(unlike inotia 3). The art style is …. Well it is on par with other Korean mobile RPGs. As I have not completed it yet, I cannot know for sure. But, I have a suspicion that the game really is 4 intros and 2 real story lines. With the outside chance that the real evil is a universal bad guy = 1 true boss.

So at it’s release price, grab it. But beware of some control issues and a crash issue with auction house items in the mail box o iPad 2 ios 4.3.4
     
Brilliant (by Malodorus)
Well done! Animations are seamlessly fluid, well thought out storyline, gorgeous environments, and I love the hidden missions which can be very rewarding. I must say the only thing that isn’t fantastic is the music, it doesn’t feel as engaging as the rest of the game, but nonetheless an altogether great title.

I’m pretty disappointed… (by Zombie Panda Monium)
A great game thats ruined by being freemium, I’d way rather pay a set price and be able to play whenever I want!
     
Free… ummm.. not really!!! :-( (by JimiMoMo)
While you can click on FREE, and sure it’ll download (eventually), but you’ll soon realize this game is anything but free. The tactics taken by Gameloft to entice you with a free game, but only to discover it would cost you WAY MORE than say a flat rate of $6.99 for the entire game.
Gameplay is great for holes #1 and #2, but after that you either need to pay to continue or wait until your health replenishes.
Show me an unlock for the entire game (for a reasonable price … $5 bucks maybe), and I’ll bite, otherwise IAP’s for $25 to $50 (actually there’s a $64.99 IAP) – considered their BEST DEAL! Best deal for who? C’mon Gameloft, smarten up, this new tactic is just a way to extract more $$ out of customers….. WAY MORE. UNINSTALLED, AND DELETED!
