More info on Forma8

Having recieved a press release from Mixed Bag studios, we're happy to give you more information on Forma8. Here's the background of the story: "In a distant future, on an alien planet, a small exploration probe called forma.8 has a mission to accomplish: he needs to find something before it's too late. Your mission is vague, the planet is big, you got parted away from your companion by an accidental event, and you just know you have to delve deeper and deeper below the planet surface.  But not everything is like it seems. Ancient civilisations, great perils and dystopian visions await you..." Boasting an intuitive control scheme that plays to the strengths of the platform, th…

E3 Trailer for upcoming physics puzzler, Jumpster

G5 and Vogat are showing off their new physics puzzle game Jumpster this week with a brand new trailer. Take a look for yourself: While it looks to use the same physics flinging formula that so many games have adopted in the wake of the success of Angry Birds, the video showcases not only a vibrant alien world, but interesting mechanics like portals and UFOs. The game is slated for release in July so keep on the lookout for our review.…


First Look: Forma8

First Look: Forma8

This is truly a first look. More information on this mobile adventure game should drop this week at E3 (and we have contacted the developer for additional info), but for now all we have are all the screenshots available over at their site. What strikes me is the evocative alien landscapes, that are quite reminiscent of Another World. If this game is drawing their main inspiration from that cinematic platforming classic, we should also expect a clean user interface, situational controls, and a load of atmosphere. We'll present you with more on this title as details are revealed to us. [Forma.8 Website - Forma.8 Facebook]…


KOTOMON Review

Review Monstars Inc. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
KOTOMON Review

Now you may be asking yourself, “What is a Kotomon”? No, it's not a Pokemon that's wearing a jacket, although that would be a good guess. All you need to know is that whatever it is, it contains cute monsters and plays like Katamari Damacy mixed up with some sort of pinball shooter. Each level has a number of monsters that need to be herded towards the gated goal. To help them along, you can pick them up, and tap the screen to fling them out onto the world like a lifeless…

Score! Classic Goals Review

Review First Touch By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Score! Classic Goals Review

Even those of you who aren't fans of the closest thing to a world sport we have in football (or soccer as it is also known), should be able to admit the most exciting part of the game is the goals. Now of course this is partly due to them being such a rarity, but it's also due to the combination of skill, strategy, and just the right dash of luck for everything to come together and wow the crowds. Score! Classic Goals is a football game that focuses on recreating the most famous goals…

Alive4ever mini: Zombie Party Review

Alive4ever mini: Zombie Party Review

The first few levels of Alive4Ever Mini take place on a beach. We try not to be topical in our reviews here at AppSpy as topical never ages well, and our videos will always be with you long after current events are forgotten. Nevertheless, given the recent attack in Florida, reviewing this zombie game at this point in time is rather fortuitous. Luckily in this more stylized, cartoony edition of the Alive4Ever franchise, we are not dealing with creepy cannibals, just a good smattering o…

Madfinger Games announce 'Dead Trigger' - a new first person zombie shooter

Madfinger games, developer of the third person shooter Shadowgun, which gained a favorable review from us here at Appspy, is proud to announce their new first person zombie shooter, 'Dead Trigger'. Here's the official E3 trailer: Promising a high end graphics and physics engine, evolving enemy AI, a host of weapons and traps, and country-based leaderboards, this is looking like a quality handheld shooter experience. No release date has been scheduled as of yet, but we will keep you updated as information comes out.…


Pocket God Episode 45 - Dance Dance Execution

Pocket God Episode 45 - Dance Dance Execution

Who would have thought that all these years later, Pocket God would still be getting amusing and entertaining updates? For those of you that wanted more dancing with your pygmys, the latest update includes a Dance Dance Revolution mini-game. Failure leads to death by disco ball so you'd best have your finger rhythm down pat (unless you wish to suck up some helium and hear sound clips from the infamous David after Dentist youtube video). The latest episode of the Pocket God youtube series will show off not only the new game, but the new in-app purchases of sweet dance moves and theme song by Parry Gripp.…


Heroes Call Review

Review Defiant Development By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Heroes Call Review

There's nothing inherently wrong with the freemium model in theory. A player can pick up the game for no cost, and if the gameplay is rewarding enough, the hooks will sink in, and the player wont mind shelling out a few dollars to stream-line their experience... or at least the pay walls won't be obtrusive enough to annoy the player away. Sadly Hereos Call by Defiant has not struck upon this balance, offering an intriguing hack and slash Diablo-esque experience, saturated by a choice b…

Extreme Skater Review

Review Miniclip.com By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Extreme Skater Review

I guess there comes a point in any skateboarder's life when all the skate parks, half pipes, ramps, and grind rails just don't shine with the challenge of excitement that once was. One lucky skater was in the forest when a crystallized meteor crashed, not only giving him super powers, but converting the landscape into the extreme skate park of his dreams. Welcome to Extreme Skater. Each level is an obstacle course that ends with your skater reaching a chunk of crystal. The game starts…

Golf Squared Review

Review Dynamo Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Golf Squared Review

There are two types of golf games on the iPhone, and it's not as simple as breaking them up into simulation and arcade virtual golf experiences. Most golf games are in 3D, and colorful characters and crazy power-ups aside, they represent a somewhat accurate portrayal of playing the sport. Another type of game has arisen on mobile devices however, and Golf Squared is the latest of these 2D side-scrolling golf experiences, which eschew the finer details of the game for odd level design a…

Defender Chronicles II: Heroes of Athelia Review

Review Gimka Entertainment, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Defender Chronicles II: Heroes of Athelia Review

The first Defender Chronicles was rated quite highly by us here at AppSpy, and with good reason. When Tower Defense games were all the rage on the iPhone, it approached the genre with its own spin on things, which included vertical combat, designated build areas, upgradable heroes, and a whole host of additional game modes. This meant fans had enough content to keep them happy for a very long time. Years later now, the sequel is upon us. With a fresh coat of paint and more hero customi…

Bee Leader Review

Review Flightless By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Bee Leader Review

Being a bee is not as glamorous as one might imagine. Sure there's the honey and flying around everywhere, but surprisingly a small insect has a lot of enemies that try to impede its progress in the hunt for nectar. Luckily bees can work as a team. You just have to find your little buddies first. Bee Leader is a day in the life of a bee. From sunrise to sunset, you buzz around a spherical world trying to collect all the nectar you can to fill up your hive's quota and get the highest s…

Wingsuit Stickman Review

Review Robert Szeleney By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Wingsuit Stickman Review

What is so inherently entertaining about ragdoll stickmen? Whether it be in choreographed martial arts animations or the plethora of iPhone games involving them, watching these abstract representations of ourselves flail around unceremoniously is always worth a chuckle. In Wingsuit Stickman, our lined protagonist takes flight, and it's up to the player to guide them around oh so many dangerous obstacles, to plummet right into the finish bag. Control of the stickman is handled via tilt…

Reiner Knizia's City of Secrets Pipes Review

Review Aidem Media By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Reiner Knizia's City of Secrets Pipes Review

Reiner Knizia's City of Secrets Pipes is certainly an odd title for a game. The setting falls along the same lines. Moles, an engineer on a royal flying vessel unwittingly crashes the majestic airship and now through his engineering prowess has to remodel all the pipes to fix his mistake. Pipes plays like a new spin on the classic Pipe Dream formula, only without the fear of the ever-present encroaching goo hurrying you along. No, each level here is part puzzle, part high…
