Solipskier & Tetra Defense: iPhone Game Reviews

Sat, Aug 14, 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.


Think of skiing on steroids and you have a small glimpse of Solipskier on iPhone. The objective is to draw a slope for your skier to glide on, losing or gaining speed according to the angle the slope is drawn. If you stop drawing the needed slope, your skier will likely fall into the black, unknown abyss. Will you gain massive air or sink into the unknown?

In their review for the game, Slidetoplay said it was innovative with its concept that “both combines Canabalt and Line Rider.” Overall, they “couldn’t put the game down in our time with it, and can easily recommend it if you’re looking for a new casual game.”

Rating: 3 out of 4.

Price: $2.99.

Tetra Defense – Attack of the Tentacle

Much like Tetra3D in the past, the same basic goal in Tetra Defense is to form lines of blocks, but instead of being able to freeform rotate the blocks in a 3D fashion, you now only have the option to place blocks on the outer edge of the tower. Bogey, your adversary, sits atop the tower and throws these blocks at you that you must then form lines in order to defeat him with.

GameZebo reviewed this title and said it “lacks pace and urgency” and that most of their complaints they had with the original Tetra3D were unfortunately not addressed in this updated game.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

Price: 99¢.
