To Dream of Dragons

News By Dave Flodine, 2 years ago
To Dream of Dragons

Roger Dean's Dragon Dream will be released on Sunday the 18th of November. Roger Dean is best know for album covers from such bands as Yes, and Asia, as well as designing the logo for UK based Videogame company Psygnosis. Now it seems he turns his talents towards videogame design, and at least on a presentation level, this game looks simply gorgeous. Let us hope it plays as well as it looks. Here's the trailer.…


Wow. They're Still Making Bloons TD

Wow. They're Still Making Bloons TD

I know. I'm as shocked as you are. Bloons TD was one of the first Tower Defence games we reviewed at Appspy back in the day, and Bloons TD 5 is released this week. It still looks like the same game, so for TD fans, and people who like monkeys popping balloons, give the trailer a look and perhaps you'll be jumping back on the Bloons Bandwagon.…


Guardian: Tego's Fate

News By Dave Flodine, 2 years ago
Guardian: Tego's Fate

Perhaps it's the remembrance of Echo the Dolphin on the SEGA Megadrive, perhaps it's the peaceful music and washed out art, but for some reason, Guardian: Tego's Fate struck a chord with me while watching the trailer. Perhaps you will have a similar reaction. The game is slated for release on November 20th, and more information can be found at the website.[Tego's Fate Website]…


Magic Orbz on the Horizon

Magic Orbz on the Horizon

Slated for release sometime before the end of November, Magic Orbz is an Arkanoid style brick breaker that swaps out bricks for lush 3D environments. It certainly looks like a nice change of pace with-in the genre. Here's the trailer!…


Get Jacked... for Gears!

Get Jacked... for Gears!

Cause the name of the game is Gear Jack. Get it? Anyways, releasing sometime late this week or early next week, this platformer looks like a blast, with flipping, rolling, and plenty of slow downs and wall-jumping. Have a look at the trailer to see what I mean.…


Kings can Fly?

News By Dave Flodine, 2 years ago
Kings can Fly?

Kings can Fly almost has the same intials as KFC, but the game is not about fried chicken. No, it's about a bored king taking to the skies in a new puzzle game that releases on November 22nd. I could explain how it works, but trailers are oh so much better for that. Take a look.…


Storm the Train Review

Storm the Train Review

Upon first loading up Storm the Train, you can be forgiven thinking you're about to play an action or stealth based game centered around robbing trains. Instead we find ourselves with a Monster Dash type run and gun as you hop from one train to the next, collecting new weapons and loads of coins as you blast away the undead, robot hordes, and even ninjas. And just like Monster Dash, the controls are a simple affair of on-screen directional buttons, a jump button, and of course a shoot…

Coin Army Review

Coin Army Review

Have you ever played one of those coin tossing games at an arcade (I know arcades aren't exactly common any more unless you live in Asia, but stick with me here)? Coin Army takes the concept of chucking coins forthwith, and trades out the opportunity to win cash and prizes with the success of a war effort... all wrapped up in a freemium package. Mmm, tasty. With the flick of a finger, you send coins out into battle. Think of them as thin, round, and shiny soldiers. Hitting tanks, comm…

Heads Up! Hot Dogs Review

Review [adult swim] By Dave Flodine, 2 years ago
Heads Up! Hot Dogs Review

So what if I told you that on the App Store there was a game, that you can play on your Apple phone or tablet device that consisted of balancing hot dogs onto the heads of complete strangers out in the street? No, your ears did not deceive you, nor did your heart, for what I speak of is true! Heads Up! Hot Dogs is the one and only hot dog balancing arcade experience possibly in the whole of video game existence, and with such a concept, is it any surprise to hear that the publishers at…

SpinCraft Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 2 years ago
SpinCraft Review

Pyp has one more chance to be a successful galactic pizza boy, otherwise he's out of a job and out of luck. Grab your spinny pizza delivery spin thingy, and get ready for some 3D platforming and gem collection. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you... Spincraft. Now is the game worthy of such a grand introduction? Is any game really? Not by a long shot! This doesn't mean that Spincraft is a bad game though. Unpolished may be a better turn of phrase. Each level has you picking up thre…

Knights of Pen & Paper Review

Knights of Pen & Paper Review

Knights of Pen & Paper is funnily enough two games in one. On one hand, you have a pretty old school, turn based, D&D inspired, grind heavy, dungeon crawling RPG. On the other, the presentation takes one step back, and puts you in control of the players at the table, playing the old school, turn based, D&D inspired, grind heavy, dungeon crawling RPG. It's an approach that does a lot to lend a certain amount of charm to the retro style pixel graphics and music, but it might…

iBomber Attack Review

iBomber Attack Review

The previous iBomber game was a rather standard Tower Defence affair. Not wanting to rest on their laurels it seems, developers Cobra Mobile have switched genres to deliver a top down tank driving, enemy shooting, and vehicle exploding experience. The question is how long is driving around war-torn maps destroying everything in sight enjoyable, and the answer to that question really rests on the player. Let's explore further. Each mission has a series of primary and secondary objectiv…

App Wrap Up (Tuesday Edition, 6th November 2012)

Hey Hey Appspy readers! It's Dave here with another installment of the App Wrap Up! Tuesday the 6th is sure a big day. Oh yes there's that important election going on over in the United States of America (whereever that is), but over here in Australia, not only is it the Melborne cup horse race, but the lotto is up to one hundred million dollars tonight. Guess who didn't buy a ticket? This guy. As always we want to stress that we're just posting the trailers of games that look interesting that we don't have time to review, and all our impressions are based on these trailers. If you have played these games, or decide to based on what you see here, please let us know in the comments. Let's ge…

Untitled Space Game

Untitled Space Game

Now the game in question isn't coming out till early 2013, but at their website (link at the bottom of this article), they have a submission system to name their game. Not a bad way to generate some buzz if you ask me. What you need to know you can find in the trailer. It's a twin stick shooter where you control a.... thing, and the level design looks like it might present some intriguing and intense scenarios. [Untitled Game Website]…
