Someone else should have done it - AppSpy's Sunday Service

Feature By Harry Slater, 3 months, 2 weeks ago
Someone else should have done it - AppSpy's Sunday Service

It's Sunday, and that can only mean one thing! I've got a hangover. But that's fine, because I wrote this post on Friday, so it's not going to affect my ability to type up words good. Wheeeeeee! Here's what happened this week. The Big Stories 1. We went hands-on with Sorcery 3 from gamebook legends Inkle. We liked it. You might like it too, so go watch it. 2. We also got our grubby mitts on Operation Dracula. Don't worry, you don't have to say fangs. 3. You want more!?! Fine, we rubbed sweaty men up against one another in non-sexy combat in WWE 2K. 4. And after that, or, more chronologically accurately, before that, we shot a T-Rex in the face in Lara Croft: Relic Run. 5. More!?! MORE!…

Implosion - Never Lose Hope iPad Review

Implosion - Never Lose Hope sees you stomping through a ravaged earth slicing up monsters in a super-powered mech suit. What's better than that? According to Harry from Pocket Gamer, not much at all.…

Tiny Dangerous Dungeons iPad Review

Review Jussi Simpanen By Harry Slater, 3 months, 4 weeks ago
Tiny Dangerous Dungeons iPad Review

Tiny Dangerous Dungeons is a retro-looking platformer with a mean streak and a serious sense of charm. But is that enough to make you download it. Harry from Pocket Gamer puts on his old-school shoes and slips into the past to find out.…

Jump'N'Shoot Attack iPad Review

Harry from Pocket Gamer straps on a jet pack and shoots some angry mutants in this retro-tastic two-touch blast from the past. But are rose tinted spectacles enough to get him through? Yeah, probably.…

Adventures of Poco Eco - Lost Sounds iPad Review

Review POSSIBLE GAMES Kft. By Harry Slater, 4 months, 1 week ago
Adventures of Poco Eco - Lost Sounds iPad Review

Poco Eco is one of those games that's not really that much of a game. It's stunning and chirpy, and features a mesmerising soundtrack. But is that enough to really recommend it? Harry from Pocket Gamer thinks so, and James agrees, mainly because he's reading Harry's review.…

Stormblades iPad Review

Review Kiloo By Harry Slater, 4 months, 1 week ago
Stormblades iPad Review

Stormblades takes the Infinity Blade template, shakes it up a bit, adds some sort of auto-running sections, and wraps everything up in a free to play model. But is that enough? In this video James uses his voice to tell you that Harry from Pocket Gamer thinks it just about is.…

Review ZORG By Harry Slater, 5 months, 1 week ago
AG Drive iPad Review

AG Drive is the latest in a long line of swooshy swoopy futuristic racers to hit the App Store, but can it succeed where so many others have failed. Yes, says Harry from Pocket Gamer. Yes it can.…

GAROU: MARK OF THE WOLVES iPad Review

Review SNK PLAYMORE By Harry Slater, 5 months, 1 week ago
GAROU: MARK OF THE WOLVES iPad Review

Can a classic 2D pugilism sim really work on a touchscreen device? Can you pull off a dragon punch input when there's nothing telling your finger when to stop? Is it really possible to punch a 2D sprite so hard its head falls off? Harry from Pocket Gamer strives to answer these questions and more in this video review of legendary SNK brawler Garou: Mark of the Wolves.…

Tempo™ iPad Review

Review WARCHEST LIMITED By Harry Slater, 5 months, 3 weeks ago
Tempo™ iPad Review

Tempo is a shooter with a twist. The twist is that it's not really a shooter. I mean, shooting happens. There's definitely shooting involved, but rather than pulling the trigger you're tapping along to various quick time events in order to get rid of the bad guys. Does it actually work? Yes, yes it does, and in the video above Pocket Gamer's Harry Slater will explain why.…

Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect iPad Review

Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect iPad Review

The Sons of Anarchy TV show might have come to a miserable end, but Orpheus Interactive has released Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect, a grim and gritty adventure game set in the same universe. There are bikes, there are swear words, and there are cringe-worthy speeches about honour and loyalty. But is it actually any cop? Pocket Gamer's Harry Slater reckons not. Have a gander at the video above to find out why.…

Angry Birds film on the way in 2016

Angry Birds the Movie is on the way. Yeah, you read that right. A feature length, animated movie starring everyone's favourite mute avians is set to hit cinemas in 2016, after Sony bought the rights to Rovio's bird flinging mobile games. According to Gamespot, Iron Man producer David Maisel is attached to the film as executive producer, and John Cohen, whose credits include Despicable Me, is on board as a producer. Sony Pictures CEO Michael Lynton had the following to say about the deal: "We're thrilled to be distributing this film and we hope this is just the beginning of what will be a long relationship with Rovio as we look for ways to work on future projects together." So it looks li…

Pudding Monsters is free! Free pudding for all!

Pudding Monsters is free! Free pudding for all!

Zeptolab's puzzling monster mash up Pudding Monsters is currently free on the App Store, which means there's never been a better time to grab the game of squishy beasts, gooey trails, and delicious desserts. The follow up to Cut The Rope might not have gained as many accolades as its erstwhile predecessor, but it's still an entertaining and engaging little puzzler featuring some of the most adorable beasts the mobile gaming world has ever seen. When we reviewed it at the end of last year we gave it full marks, citing its perfectly paced puzzles and gorgeous graphics as reasons for falling in love with its squelchy, slidey premise. If you've never played the game we suggest you go and grab…

Redline Rush races on to the App Store

Redline Rush races on to the App Store

Redline Rush is an endless racer that mixes the cops vs robbers aesthetic of Need for Speed, then drops in the gold coin accoutrements of Temple Run. And it's going to be available from the App Store pretty damn soon. With 16 different super powered sports cars to choose from and three tracks to race along there's a decent chunk of content to keep you entertained, and the price tag of 99c isn't too steep either. A simple control system makes the game a doddle to pick up, but there's a decent challenge here for fans of fast paced arcade racers. The game is from the developers of Offroad Legends, which got a 4/5 when we reviewed it last year, so there's some racing pedigree behind the decen…

Trigger City brings old skool violence to the App Store

Trigger City brings old skool violence to the App Store

Punching people in the face is a terrible pastime, frowned upon by all. Unless you do it in a video game that is, in which case you'll probably be heralded as a hero by a bunch of digital people. That's certainly the case in Trigger City, a game which takes its cues from the past and wears its retro credentials proudly on its rolled up sleeves. Out on the App Store now, the game sees you taking to the streets of the titular city to dish out steaming hot bowls of violent justice. With simple controls, plenty of combos and special moves to master, and 16 levels of side scrolling scrapping to work your way through there's a lot to like about Trigger City. Throw in some motorbike levels and…
