Reviews from All About Symbian

There are times when what you want in a game is a bundle of massive plot lines, ongoing game play, full screen videos, voice actors and the complexity of the Space Shuttle. But, conversely, there are also times where you just want to start something, get straight to the game, play for a few minutes and then switch back to real life. Biniax gives you the latter.

PMGA Minigolf

Wed, 21 Sep 2005 13:17:00 +0100

There's a big potential problem with PMGA Minigolf but I'm not going to tell you about it right away. See if you can guess as you read along. From Synergenix, rightly famed for their super-slick Symbian OS games, comes this Java-based minigolf simulation, presented in 'glorious' isometric 3D. Continue reading the full review at AAS...

Rally PRO Contest

Thu, 01 Sep 2005 10:50:00 +0100

Why oh why does the use of the word 'Rally' in a mobile game title usually indicate that it's not going to be very good? I've seen several examples over the years (V-Rally on Psion was by far the worst) and this is just as disappointing. Continue reading the full review at AAS...

Golf PRO Contest

Wed, 31 Aug 2005 18:16:00 +0100

The beauty and serenity of a golf course is always a humbling thing for someone who can appreciate nature (even when it is crafted) and the game of golf, much like those stunning courses can be a peaceful and relaxing thing. Whether you're playing an import copy of Wicked 18 on the Mega Drive, the latest PSP Hot Shots Golf game or a simple S60 game, when golf is done right it can be a wonderful thing. I'm happy to report that the Synergenix-published Golf PRO Contest is one of those wonderful things. Continue reading the full review at AAS...

The defining characteristic of a smartphone, of course, is that it's (potentially) always online, with applications able to make full use of the wider Internet. In some cases, this means automatic updating, in others it means up to date financial or weather information. In QBubbleMP's case, it means being able to play against other people in real time, whether they're in Reading or Rio, in London or Los Angeles. The game works on all Symbian UIQ smartphones, letting you play what appears to be a pretty standard game of 'fire bubbles and try and match the colours' either in single (boring!) or multi-player mode.

Joe's Treasure Quest

Thu, 25 Aug 2005 11:36:00 +0100

Yes, this is another fairly high-scoring game, but don't get worried that I'm overrating these titles - I'm simply trying to bring you notice of the best games before the summer is completely gone. Rest assured that some of the turkeys will get named and shamed in due course! Continue reading the full review at AAS...

Balloon Headed Boy

Wed, 24 Aug 2005 15:12:00 +0100

There’s a lot to be said for the cutesy cartoon platform genre. Most of the time the words "cheap rip-off from somewhere else" are those words, but sometimes (just sometimes, mind you) you can use "a really nice game". Luckily for Morpheme, I can say the latter about their Java Midlet "Balloon Headed Boy." Continue reading the full review at AAS...

Yes, yes, I know hardened gamers will be saying it's just another Breakout/Arkanoid clone, but Meteor deserves to be given a second look however jaded you feel the genre has become. Why? Because it's almost perfect. Continue reading the full review at AAS...

Bowling Master

Thu, 11 Aug 2005 19:12:00 +0100

Are you the sort of person who likes sport in order to compete with yourself? In other words, to continually hone your own skills, upping your scores bit by bit? Or do you prefer playing against other human (or computer) players, going for real world competetive realism? If the latter, then Bowling Master isn't for you.

Checkers Challenge

Fri, 05 Aug 2005 17:30:00 +0100

OK, so it's games week here on AllAboutSymbian. Checkers Challenge (and the other dozen or so titles available from the authors 'for your Symbian') was a new title to me. Absolutist are basically a games software house using a proprietary multi-platform engine to port their games between Windows, Palm, Symbian, etc. Nothing wrong with that, but an alarm bell in my head started chiming ever so quietly.

SuDoKu Professional

Wed, 03 Aug 2005 19:32:00 +0100

Ah, SuDoKu. How it has captured the minds of everyone in Britain and further afield. It’s a simple concept. Take a 9 by 9 grid, split that into 9 areas (each 3 by 3) and write in the numbers 1 through 9, ensuring that… Continue reading the full review at AAS...

Cuppa Joe's

Mon, 25 Jul 2005 21:17:00 +0100

Played Lemonade Tycoon? Bored of it but wanting more of that lovely management simulation fun. Well, it appears that Neohand has just exactly what you're after with their recently released Cuppa Joe's. This AppForge powered game, while not as pretty as JAMDAT's Lemonade Tycoon in the eye candy department, takes the foundational concepts of that game's genre and grows them tenfold into a much larger, more complex simulation.

Super Miners

Tue, 05 Jul 2005 18:21:00 +0100

Now this looks pretty good from the screenshots, and I was half expecting a huge run-around platform game with shades of Mario. So, much as I love the Repton/Boulderdash style of gaming, my first thought was that Super Miners was not what I was expecting. Continue reading the full review at AAS...

Here we go, it’s another falling blocks game. Let me let you into a little secret here, readers. If you’ve ever wondered what the hardest application in the Symbian world (actually in any computer world) is to review, it’s a game that’s "not quite unlike Tetris". Because to put it simply, Tetris is the one. Many come close (and we’ve reviewed one or two on All About Symbian in the past). Continue reading the full review at AAS...

Hover Zone

Fri, 10 Jun 2005 17:05:00 +0100

It's the year 2097 and the Earth is in a bad way...For some reason, every game seems to have a back story these days, with pretty cut scenes to match. Hover Zone, set well in the future, is no exception, although what you really need to know is that it's a hover-board racing game with occasional physical violence towards your opponents. It's a very competent effort, too, running on just about every single Series 60 device out there. Continue reading the full review at AAS...
