Master of Alchemy & Madden NFL 11 – iPhone Game Reviews

Sun, Aug 15, 2010

iPhone, Mobile

With so many games being released on the iTunes app store, it’s sometimes hard to keep up with which ones you should or shouldn’t be playing on your iPhone. Thankfully, we have the review round-up to show you the best games available on the app store, complete with summaries and reviews from all around the web.

Master of Alchemy

The object in Master of Alchemy is simple: Use the power of your mind and alchemy to help an object travel from one point to another. The idea is that you can use these different elements to your advantage, such as moving a liquid up a shaft by turning it into gas or by turning a gas into solid in order for it to move down. This added element of being able to transform things makes Master of Alchemy unique.

However, in GameZebo‘s review of the game, they said it was “a competent puzzler, but it doesn’t really break any new ground, and it’s a little too flawed to whole-heartedly earn our recommendation” and that “Turning liquids into gases sounds like a great puzzle game idea on paper, but Master of Alchemy doesn’t do enough to make the experience anything more than run-of-the-mill.”

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Price: 99¢.

Madden NFL 11

While still missing some portions of the console game, Madden on the iPhone works just about as well as anyone could expect. With some varied and multiplayer game modes, this year’s edition is the most full featured portable Madden yet. The only real omission in the iPhone edition is that of Franchise mode (which most console Madden fans have come to adore).

In their review of the game, Slidetoplay said that Madden NFL 11 is “a solid football game that represents the legendary brand well. The key additions to flesh out the overall football experience are amazing and can’t be emphasized enough” and that “Madden NFL 11 is worth buying.”

Rating: 3 out of 4.

Price: $7.99.
