Dave says goodbye to Appspy

News By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Dave says goodbye to Appspy

Well this is my last day as editor of Appspy.com I've had a fantastic time helping to launch this site. From developing the video reviews, to the review process itself, it's been a fulfilling experience. It's now time for me to move on and hand the reins over to the new editor, Andrew Nesvadba who will be ensuring that Appspy continues to grow, and becomes bigger and better. I'd like to thank everyone on the Appspy team for all their contributions to what I feel is quickly becoming one of the best iphone news and review sites on the web. I'd also like to thank all the fans from the website and our youtube channel for their interest and support. Finally a note to developers. I may not be r…


Devil Invasion Review

Review TOUCHMINE CO.LTD By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Devil Invasion Review

By now we've not only seen a slew of Bejeweled style games on the iphone, we've also seen games use Bejeweled as a mechanic for other types of gameplay. Devil Invasion is one of these games. Wrapping gem matching up in a castle defense coating, makes for a very interesting play. At the start of each level you can assign three skills to your character (which can be bought and upgraded). These spells require mana which is collected by playing the match three game during the level. This…

Cosmo Kid: Bounce the Galaxy! Review

Review Pear Computer, LLP By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Cosmo Kid: Bounce the Galaxy! Review

Bounce bounce bounce! Cosmo Kid wants to see the stars and visit far off worlds. With the help of his elastic band and the mysterious but friendly Kukkaja flower people, he might just make it on his journey. The elastic used to bounce Cosmo into the heavens is drawn on screen with your finger. It can be drawn in a straight line or a curve, which affects the speed and direction of Cosmo depending on how he hit it. The higher you fly, the more Kukkaja you meet. Some are obstacles, but o…

My Brute Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
My Brute Review

My Brute is a combat and levellng game in the same genre as games like Mafia Wars. You create a character and academy, and then fight other real opponents around the world to level up, and achieve new techniques and weapons. Like Mafia Wars, you only have a certain number of fights you can engage in each day, but can purchase the ability to play more via ingame DLC. The game is pretty much on auto pilot. The fights themselves are taken care of via the computer and all you can do is wa…

Electric Box Review

Review Candystand.com By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Electric Box Review

Games like 'The Incredible Machine' were great fun as you got to use a bunch of simple objects to manipulate your way to a goal. Electric Box is quite similar, only the goal is to transfer the flow of electricity from the on switch to the target using different kinds of energy conductors and transferal devices. Control is all touch and drag. The puzzles are layed out on a grid, and all the objects (from steam machines to magnets to lasers) can be placed anywhere, tapped on for a descr…

Artilect Pro Review

Review Yuri Brigance By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Artilect Pro Review

Artilect by Atomic Cactus is a puzzle game in which you take turns against a human or AI controlled opponent, trying to change the colour of orbs to reach your opponent's goal. It's also very difficult as the AI is brutal even on the early stages. What then is it, that makes this game so hard to put down? Control is all touch based. Each level consists of green orbs between the two goals, with the game starting in the middle. Upon touching a green orb, you change it to your colour, dr…

Cubetrix 3D Review

Review Mobicle Co.,Ltd. By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Cubetrix 3D Review

Did you ever play a match three gem game and think, "I want these colours to be in cubes that i can push from the outside?" No? Well too bad cause that's what Cubetrix 3D is. Those tricky cubes need to be pushed to form lines of three of the same colour which will then explode, sending the rest careening together, hopefully leading to more explosions. Ok, so maybe the tone is a little melodramatic, but that's the basic idea. There are three buttons on screen. Two are used to move the…

Sailboat Championship PRO Review

Review Infinite Dreams Inc. By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Sailboat Championship PRO Review

Do you fancy yourself nautically minded? Do you watch the America's Cup every year? If so, i assume you're a fan of sailing, and if that is the case, you should probably check out Sailboat Championship Pro, a game where you must control your yacht around a course in order to achieve the fastest lap times possible. There are multiple levels of control from manning the sails, to steering, but you can have the computer handle the sails while you concentrate on catching the wind. These co…

Caligo Chaser Review

Review Com2uS USA, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Caligo Chaser Review

Caligo Chaser by Com2us is fairly standard action RPG fare. There are people in town who give you quests, areas to destory monsters by chaining attacks, and a customization system for skills and weapons. This is not old and boring however because this game has draped everything in visual flare and streamlined mechanics. After acing your exams, you become a private knight to pay off your school debt and work to keep the city of Emporion safe. Control is handled via a virtual d-pad with…

iEscaper!2 -Escape from the Castle of Doom- Review

Review CELLNAVI By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
iEscaper!2 -Escape from the Castle of Doom- Review

The escape the room game become popular on the PC as a host of simple flash games emerged trapping the player in an area with some fiendish puzzles and pixel hunting. The genre made an excellent leap to the iphone platform last year with iEscaper - Escape from the Ninja's Lair, and now the sequel is upon us, titled iEscaper 2 - Escape from the Castle of the Doom. As a ninja, you make your way into the Castle of Doom to obtain the Crystal of Dragon, though finding said crystal and getti…

Dawn of Discovery - Harbor Review

Review Ubisoft By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Dawn of Discovery - Harbor Review

Dawn of Discovery is the latest installment in the Anno series, a game that focuses on resource management with a touch of real time strategy. This iphone port takes one element of the PC release and creates a very addictive time manangement game through thirty six missions. As the harbour master, it is your duty to manage traders to make your daily quota and expand your business. Everything is controlled by touching and dragging. Traders queue up to enter your harbour, and you choose…

Ice Bullet Review

Review David Fernandez Vara By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Ice Bullet Review

If there's one thing certain about the Olympics (summer or winter), is that there will be many videogames made to capatilize on the events. Bobsleigh is one such event that seems like a good idea for a videogame and a great idea for an iphone game, especially using tilt controls. Ice Bullet sets out to deliver a Bobsleigh experience on the iphone, but does it replicate the speed and danger of its real life counterpart? Control is tilt based, with leaning forward used for braking aroun…


Chromixa Review

Review Wet Nose Design Ltd By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Chromixa Review

Chromixa began life as an art installation based on creator Simon Watson's fascination with light. A handful of development time later and we have a light based puzzle game for the iphone. The goal is to create shapes of a solid colour out of overlaying smaller pieces of different colours, much like a jigsaw. Control is all touch and drag. Upon touching a piece, it can be dragged anywhere on screen or the large wheel can be used to rotate it. If you ever get confused about which colou…

Mega Man® II Review

Review Beeline Interactive, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Mega Man® II Review

This is a difficult review to write. Mega Man II is this reviewer's favourite videogame of all time. This 1988 release on the NES has been ported to the iphone with a whole new streamlined experience. Dr. Wily is at again, and it's up to Megaman to stop his nefarious schemes. This iphone port comes with a few options that affect controls and gameplay. The game can be played in portrait or landscape view. Portrait makes the touch joystick and buttons harder to use while landscape featu…

Guardian Knight Review

Review Lineholic By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Guardian Knight Review

Guardian Knight describes itself as a tower defense game, but this doesn't really define the gameplay. Sure, there are monsters that spawn trying to attack the princess you have sworn to protect, and you gain exp to upgrade your abilities, but that's where the comparions end. It's more of an action RPG, with the princess spending each level travelling from point A to B, while you attack everything in your sight to keep her safe. Control is touch and drag based. Movement and attacking…
