Digital Chocolate and Sumea have tried to give the Breakout/Arkanoid genre a new look for the 2000s, but have they succeeded? Ovi Gaming presents a review, video and screenshots of Brick Breaker Revolution, an arcade game which seems to borrow slightly from Nokia's classic Mile High Pinball. Is it as good? Read the review to find out.
California Gold Rush is an arcade/puzzle game where you have to collect gold, gems and other treasure underground, and occasionally perform other missions such as rescuing trapped miners. Ovi Gaming has reviewed the game, and also done a gameplay video and a large number of screenshots. The game is published by Digital Chocolate and developed by Sumea.
Another in Progressive Media's Sheep Mania series, Puzzle Islands sees you guiding a sheep to safety while avoiding cliff edges and nasty creatures. As usual Ovi Gaming has done a review, gameplay video and screenshots. You might also like to check out another game in the same franchise, the sheep racing simulator Sheep Mania Barnyard Dash.
The rather disturbingly-named Whack A Friend gets an Ovi Gaming review, gameplay video and screenshots. It's basically the same as whack-a-mole but you can use your own photos for the moles, allowing you to whack a friend or indeed an enemy too...
Travel Genius is a geography trivia game which features lots of questions and a map-based interface. Ovi Gaming has taken a closer look, and here's our review along with a gameplay video. This game was developed by Russian mobile veterans HeroCraft.
Continuing today's run of good games, Bubble Popper Deluxe earns itself a very good score in Ovi Gaming's review, and of course we've included an extended gameplay video and plenty of screenshots so you can judge for yourself.
It seems that, like buses, you wait ages for some award-quality games and then several come along at once. Winning the second Recommended award of the day, BlockGO is a top-notch puzzler with pretty graphics and 99 increasingly difficult levels. Ovi Gaming presents a review, gameplay video and some screenshots, and there's a free demo of the game on Ovi Store under the name BlockGO Lite.
We reviewed Tower Bloxx Deluxe a few days ago and were a bit disappointed, but the original Tower Bloxx does not disappoint. It's a gem of a game and wins Ovi Gaming's "Recommended" award, so take a look at our review, gameplay video and screenshots straight away...
Way back in 1981 it was the first sequel to Pac-Man, but how does it play in 2009? Ovi Gaming presents its review, gameplay video and screenshots of Ms. Pac-Man for Ovi Store. (And incidentally, it was Marcus Brigstoke who did the joke about munching pills and listening to repetitive music...)
Yacht II is a poker dice game with rules similar to the popular title Yahtzee, and Ovi Gaming has been taking a look at it with our usual review, gameplay video and screenshots. It can take a while to work out what you're supposed to do as there are no instructions, but it's fun once you do get your bearings.
