Candy Boy Review

Review Colorbox By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 4 months ago
Candy Boy Review

Candy Boy is what would happen if Dr. Mario had been a platformer instead of a puzzle game. Casper finds that his beloved Candy Land has been infested by horrific candy hungry worms. It's now up to him to use the power of sugary treats to send these parasites to oblivion. Each level consists of worms of different colors nestled amongst candy of different colors. Armed with a small supply of candy himself, Casper needs to place the blocks so that three or more of the same color matches…

Cado Review

Review ClearCut Games By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 4 months ago
Cado Review

Sometimes it's nice to sit back and enjoy a simple game that just feels good to play. Cado by Clearcut games have taken the sketchbook motif that was insanely popular amongst iPhone games a couple years ago and have used it to make a well handled physics action game. Cado, a black ball needs to get to the portal in each stage. The way he travels there is through rotating the level left or right, causing him to roll around the various obstacles into safety. There is also a star to coll…

RALLY-X RUMBLE Review

Review BANDAI NAMCO Games Inc. By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 4 months ago
RALLY-X RUMBLE Review

(The App Store is currently not allowing downloads of this App - a video will be made as soon as it's available again.) The original Rally-X was an interesting concept. Let a rally car loose in a maze, where it has to collect all the flags to proceed, while avoiding the evil rally cars chasing it. Now seeming that Namco Bandai are remaking all their arcade classics for the iPhone platform, we have Rally-X Rumble. It's the same game under some new graphical flair, with an emphasis on a…


Julius Styles - The International Review

Review Lapland Studio Ltd By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 4 months ago
Julius Styles - The International Review

One might be forgiven for thinking that upon starting up Julius Styles, that they're playing a licensed game for an off-the-radar Wesley Snipes movie. Well it turns out that this happens to be an adventure game that features Mr. Snipes voicing the main character in short introductory cut-scenes before each playable chapter. Julius Styles works for The Assembly, a covert group of elite members who undertake missions of hacking, blackmail, and assassination in order to guide and change t…

Defender of the Crown Review

Review Manomio LLC By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 4 months ago
Defender of the Crown Review

Most gamers who discovered their love of the medium during the 80s probably remember Defender of the Crown. Released on the Amiga in 1986, what we have here on the iphone is a complete port of that title (and not a port of any of the many other ports the game had). After the assassination of the king, you return to England and find yourself amassing an army to occupy lands, reunite the country, and defend against Norman factions vying to take over. So the game is turn-based and presen…

Squirmee REDUX Review

Review Coding Design, LLC By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 4 months ago
Squirmee REDUX Review

Squirmee is enjoying time with his sister, when out of nowhere, a gigantic tree shoots out of the ground and traps her on its highest branch. This is the story of Squirmee and the Puzzling Tree, and sets the stage for a fast paced, original puzzle game, with plenty of frustration to spare. Each level has Squirmee traveling along a predetermined path on a platform. The goal is to reach the end as quickly as possible, with the three stars available each level tied to the time of complet…

NyxQuest Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 4 months ago
NyxQuest Review

It's hard to believe NyxQuest is a port of a Wiiware game released in 2009. Not due to its presentation or anything along those lines, but rather that upon playing the game, you'd swear it was created with a touch interface in mind. Most people should know the story of Icarus. Given wings held together by wax, he flew too close to the sun, the wax melted, and as a result he plummeted to Earth. On one of his flights he discovers the goddess Nyx and the two fall in love. The world below…

Siege Hero Review

Review Armor Games Inc By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 4 months ago
Siege Hero Review

There's no denying the success of Angry Birds, and obviously other developers are going to try their hand at the style of gameplay that was popularized by that game, but what about the developer that inspired Angry Birds? Armor Games, creators of Crush the Castle are back with a whole new perspective on the physics destruction genre with Siege Hero. Siege Hero approaches things from a first person perspective. There are still enemies held up in rickety dwellings made of wood, stone, a…

Review Neggi Studio By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 4 months ago

Mega Mall Story Review

Review Kairosoft Co.,Ltd By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 4 months ago
Mega Mall Story Review

I hope you have plenty of time to lose because developer Kairosoft is back with another sim game to eat up the hours. In Mega Mall Story, your goal is to take the small building you've been given and turn it into a 5-star ranked mall within the span of fifteen years. Sound like an arduous task? Perhaps, but with the help of your faithful secretary and some wise investment, a great mall is certainly within reach. For as complex a game as Mega Mall Story is, it sports a mostly intuitive…

Space is Key Review

Review ChrisJeff Games By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 4 months ago
Space is Key Review

What is the mark of a good game? Has a game that finishes leaving you wanting more a sign of quality, or is that a sign that the developer hasn't taken their concept far enough? Space is Key by ChrisJeff games has us at Appspy thinking about this, and we'll tell you why soon enough. In Space is Key you are a moving block. You either move to the left or the right depending on the level, but the goal is the same; reach the star on the other side, and don't die. Blocking your pathway are…

Ninja Fishing Review

Review Gamenauts By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 4 months ago
Ninja Fishing Review

Sit back,  relax, and let the fattest ninja since Chris Farley aid you in the unique art of Ninja Fishing. It's a simple addictive title that consists of four phases. First is navigating your fishing line as far down as it will go, avoiding all the fish by tilting your iPhone. Then either when you've reached the bottom or accidentally snagged a fish, your line comes up again, and now it's time to grab up to twenty five of the largest, juiciest pieces of sea life the waters near M…

Dice Soccer! Review

Review LambdaMu Games By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 4 months ago
Dice Soccer! Review

It's finally happened! The pairing you were waiting for. The fast paced action of soccer combined with the slow methodical tension of a dice roll. I guess both games require luck but while an odd pairing, Dice Soccer is a pretty addictive title. You are the manager of a soccer team. Starting in a training camp you have to win or draw matches to earn enough stars to move up the ranks and compete in the big leagues. You have three lines of players. Three forwards, three defense, and a g…

Pirate Gunner HD Review

Review Black Pearl Games Limited By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 4 months ago
Pirate Gunner HD Review

Avast me hearties! It's another pirate themed game on the iPhone! Fear not you lovers of swashbuckling and buried treasure for this isn't just a simple attempt to cash in on the pirate craze (though I imagine that's what the developers had in mind), this is actually a really well made puzzle action game. Like the title suggests, you are a pirate gunner, manning the cannons on Captain Red Beard's ship. As you come across other pirate vessels, the navy, and even giant octopuses, it's up…

Gesundheit! Review

Gesundheit! Review

The motivation for your character in Gesundheit is told through one of the most amusing little pieces of intro animation I’ve watched in a while. As the runt of a litter of pigs, your allergies ostracize you from the rest of the group... that is until your village is attacked by monsters. Now it's up to you to use the power of snot to get rid of the monsters, and save everyone. The goal of each level is to capture the monsters. This is accomplished by leading them into traps whe…
