Ponk & NCIS: iPhone Game Reviews

Fri, Sep 10, 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.

Ponk

A bit of a departure from the traditional match-3 formula, Ponk allows you to choose where your blocks drop, allowing you to score amazing combos that you’ve probably never seen before in a game like this. With a variety of modes that all challenge you in different ways, Ponk looks to bring a new light to the cliche match 3 genre on the iPhone.

In their review, AppSpy said about Ponk: “There’s not a lot more for players to dig in to and despite the alternative modes it all eventually starts to feel the same. This isn’t a bad thing by any means and Ponk is still a fabulously entertaining three-match variant, albeit another for the ever increasing pile.”

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Price: Free

NCIS

Being a hidden-object, mini-game title, this iPhone version of the TV show manages to stay true to its roots. Just like the TV show, the NCIS video game takes place over five episodes, and focuses on a single crime during that time. Personalities from the show manage to give the game a slight touch of humor when appropriate.

In their review, GameZebo said it’s “about exactly what you would expect from a licensed game on a mobile phone. It’s quick, easy, and simple” but that it would be hard to recommend to those who aren’t fans of the CBS show.

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Price: $4.99.
