Review: Mana Chronicles for iPhone

Mana Chronicles is an Action Adventure RPG for the iPhone, it’s a game that has been very popular in China and has been translated for the U.S. There is a very definite Anime influence to the graphics which is a good thing. The soundtrack is good too!


The troops of Inferno are invading and it is up to you to stop them. The game progresses across 3 distinct areas in the game. They are: Villages, The Magic Forest and the Inferno itself.

You will have Super Abilities such as ice, fire or lightening attacks. Make sure to use them, they help! You will level up via loot, and fighting experience.

There are multiple game modes such as Mission Mode. You will need to complete this to unlock bonus game modes. Do not overlook items to collect during gameplay either.

Overall Score: This gets 4 out of 5!


It’s a well crafted Action Adventure RPG.

It does help to play some levels over again to gain more experience and Level Up.


The blank screen that appear during level transitions could be shorter. Sometimes your character can go off the the right edge of the screen.

Review: 7 Balls for iPhone

7 Balls for iPhone is a game that resembles pinball and pachinko.


The object is to maneuver a ball from the top to a slot that moves from left to right along the bottom edge.

Maneuvering the Ball can be tricky and requires some finesse. Being able to adjust the accelerometer’s sensitivity would be most helpful. Successfully get 7 Balls into the moving slot to Win.

Download iPad version for $1.99

Overall Score: This gets 2.5 out of 5.


It has a retro feel and the music soundtrack is good!


Gameplay could be improved by controlling the accelerometer’s sensitivity.

Review: PinGoal for iPhone

What do you get when you combine Pinball and Soccer? The result is PinGoal for iPhone.


Like Pinball, You use your flippers for offense and defense and Like Soccer, you try to score points by getting the ball/marble through your opponent’s Goal. There are many bumpers/pins that make that harder to do.

There is a multiplayer mode where both players play the game on the same iPhone at the same time. This can get a bit intense given the screen size. It works but it might work better on an iPad with it’s larger screen.

If you enjoy games with a retro feel, you might want to give PinGoal a try.

Sunlight Games, developer of Funny Scoreboard, brings us 2 Sports Themed Soundboards.

Soundboards, for the uninitiated, are collections of sounds from, or related to, a specific sport or game.

Handball and Soccer Soundboards for iPhone are soundboards that include audience sounds, referee whistles and the like.

Both have similar sound sets so it’s really a matter of which one you prefer.

The samples sound good, especially the whistles. You get audience screams, drum banging, etc.
