    A great game to bust out at the pub. [Oct 2012, p.95]

    For all its charm and cleverness, Party Wave falls on the wrong side of the line between originality and accessibility. There's promise and style to be found here, but not nearly enough entertainment.

    You may not want to catch this wave, as you're likely to wipe out.

    A very fun and refreshing game, and a great start for Hironobu Sakaguchi on mobile platforms. The control is good and the gameplay mechanics are great, but it lacks some more depth and options. We also miss a multiplayer mode.

    We hope that Sakaguchi was distracted while Mistwalker was deveolping Party Wave: it would be the only reason to justify such an uninspired and shallow game.

    The creator of Final Fantasy creates… a not very good smartphone mini-game, with annoying controls and all the longevity of a terminally ill butterfly.

    A painfully simple pair of ideas that are executed poorly and endlessly recycled.

    If taken in quick bursts, Party Wave can be pretty fun, but once you've seen the first four or five levels, there aren't going to be many surprises to keep you going.

    With Party Wave, you're in for a good time. Its accessible yet deep gameplay will challenge you more than the vast majority of iOS titles, without being frustrating.

    While your time with Party Wave will certainly be enjoyable, it's likely to be rather short-lived.

    Not much to say- Wellmeant skill game meets the incognizant controls of a touchscreen. You can't feel too bad donating a couple bucks to Mistwalker, in any case. Full Review »
