OXCGN’s Fruit Ninja Kinect Review
Flailing ‘about’ has never been so fun
©2011 Gav Ross
From finger swiping to arm flailing, Halfbrick Studios’ Fruit Ninja has undergone a fitting evolution that no other game originally developed for
iOS can boast.
Having the honoured distinction of being the first Kinect-enabled Xbox Live Arcade title, Fruit Ninja Kinect has more pressure to deliver the goods than most downloadable titles.
Can slashing randomised produce with your arms be as fun as kicking back with an iPhone and just making your index finger tired?
Actually, it’s not just as fun, it’s even better.
For a truely fruitie, fun-filled time . . .

OXCGN’s Dead Space iPhone 4 Review
Strategic dismemberment in the palm of your hand!
©2011 Arthur Kotsopoulos
It’s rare gems like Dead Space on the iPhone 4 that really amaze and spark great interest in someone like myself.
When a title that is so graphically visceral on its console counter parts can offer almost the same level of detail and immersion on a mobile device, it’s pretty impressive.
Okay, so I lied: it doesn’t offer the ‘exact gaming experience’ as its console counterparts, but for a game on a mobile device that is mainly used to call, message and browse the internet, it certainly is a looker.
Developed by Iron Monkey Studios, Dead Space on the iPhone 4 is not only graphically impressive with its lighting, character models, and environment, but is also fluid and easy with its innovative control scheme.
Time to start slashing necromorphs . . .

OXCGN’s iPhone 4 NBA Jam Review
We brought the peanut butter &… EA definitely brought the JAM!

It’s been a long time coming but NBA Jam for your iPhone is finally here!
Now I know I’m only 20 years old but I have had the privilege of experiencing NBA Jam Tournament edition on a good old fashioned arcade machine courtesy of my TAFE here in North Sydney.
I can safely say that many hours both during and outside of class time were spent in the gaming dungeon slamming away the competition.
When I heard that NBA Jam was being released for consoles with updated graphics and using the current roster of NBA athletes, I was very excited.
And better yet now that it’s been released for the iPhone 4, anytime and anywhere I can sit down and get my boomshakala happening while negotiating the urban sprawl we call Sydney on the various modes of public transport.
Lots of hoops and slamming fun . . .

The Jungle: New Handheld On The Way?
Can Panasonic manage a new handheld – or?
by : XboxOZ360

Well it seems Panasonic want to get into the handheld gaming act, and could be producing an online unit that will amongst other things, allow great MMO activity through its new website, Jungle.com.
While it has yet to be ‘officially’ announced, the pics and video of “The Jungle” could mean yet another handheld is heading our way, but can the market take it, or want it, and better still, could Panasonic pull it off, especially after their past blunder with the 3DO many years ago.
Sure, times have changed, but to produce a handheld that has both a decent keyboard, touch-screen and online gaming would require a significant amount of investment, and that means a higher than normal retail price. What could be the reason behind it . . .
