Somersault & EpicWin: iPhone Game Reviews

Mon, Aug 30, 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.


It can be difficult to make a fun game out of moving from point A to point B, but Somersault manages that task with such grace. In Somersault, you play as Flip Fullfeather who is out to save his friends from Dr. Proto in order to rebuild his homeworld. To play, you simply draw a line on the screen showing Flip where to flip to. However, flip carries momentum and you’ll have to stop him by drawing lines as he goes.

In their review, Slidetoplay said that it’s “a gorgeous-looking game, and that and the interesting level variety might be enough for many action gamers.” However, “its slow pace could definitely impact your enjoyment” but overall they recommended it.

Rating: 3 out of 4.

Price: $2.99.


Making everyday, ordinary activities into an epic quest is the goal of EpicWin. Playing more like a text adventure than a game with “real” gameplay elements, EpicWin plays more like Mafia Wars and the like than any other genre of game.  Your progress takes its toll on your in-game avatar as well as the map.

In their review of the game, GameZebo said that it “isn’t a game, but instead it’s a way to make your life feel more like one” and that “Finding loot, earning experience, and progressing across a map, these are all simply incentives to help you get through the more mundane chores that are apart of everyday life.”

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Price: $2.99.
