It's difficult to review Malevolent and not find myself making comparisons to Pocket God, one of the top selling entertainment apps for iPhone. The basic premise behind both games is remarkably similar, yet each has taken it in a different direction.
As its name suggests, Malevolent is an app that lets you torment, dismember and incinerate a horde of tiny people. This is done by dropping traps, blocks, explosives, and other items of destruction on or among them. Make no mistake, this one is definitely not for the kids. The people may be tiny, but you can still make out the little bloody pieces flying across the screen.
