League of Evil Review

Review Ravenous Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
League of Evil Review

League of Evil by Woblyware and Ravenous Games makes me angry. I'm angry because League of Evil is yet more proof that we can have fun platformers on iOS devices, but so few manage to make something as simple as running and jumping genuinely fun to play. After a brief introductory level explaining your controls, you're thrown in to the world of a super agent and his quest to kill evil scientists across the world. Each level places you in to a gauntlet of traps, spikes, turrets and ene…

Dead Space™ Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Dead Space™ Review

Haters will hate, but Electronic Arts have done a lot in my eyes to show just how progressive they've become in the gaming industry and their latest release of Dead Space for iOS devices only helps to solidify this position. With Dead Space 2 dropping on major consoles and PCs this coming week, iDevice users have an opportunity to play the events leading up to the start of the new title and it's no  Sunday picnic. The controls are limited to only one setup, however much like the…

Papa Sangre Review

Review Somethin' Else By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Papa Sangre Review

UPDATE: By popular request we have created a demonstration video of the 3D audio effect on our YouTube channel. You can view it by following the link on the YouTube page for our review or directly at - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9IN0A4GZrE When people ask me, 'Hey, can you recommend something a bit different for my iPhone?' I'll simply tell them to get Papa Sangre, because when it comes to 'unique' it's hard to say that any other App quite matches this one. Almost unlike anything…

Dungeon Defenders: Second Wave Review

Review Trendy Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Dungeon Defenders: Second Wave Review

Editors Note (Nov 9, 2011): Dungeon Defenders holds, dubiously, one of the most hotly contended scores on AppSpy.com if only because I, the reviewer of the game, wanted to love it to bits. At the time Dungeon Defenders was a whirlwind of magical catchphrases that made my inner-gamer tingle with excitement: Unreal Engine graphics, Tower Defense Gameplay, Hero Defense gameplay, Online Co-Op, Persistent and Personalized Character Development. What wasn't to like about this game? Sad…

N.O.V.A. 2 - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
N.O.V.A. 2 - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Review

A year ago the first title in the N.O.V.A. series managed to stun audiences with its incredibly sharp visuals, paired with excellent near-console quality gameplay that may have felt slavish to its inspirations, but still managed to impress regardless of this. The sequel is much the same, though the inclusion of a larger campaign; career-based online multiplay; and smarter AI opponents shows that Gameloft are serious about taking this game to the next level. Those who have played Gamel…

Real Racing 2 Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Real Racing 2 Review

While I could go on about the amazing visuals, the licensed vehicles and the clever career system of Real Racing 2 by Firemint, the thing that stands out the most is the online multiplayer. Pitching in to a race with 15 other players can be exhilarating and outside of the occasional disconnected player it's a frantic environment to test out your skills. The controls for Real Racing 2 are highly customizable, with options varying between tilt and touch based steering; automatic and man…

Super Stickman Golf Review

Review Noodlecake Studios Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Super Stickman Golf Review

UPDATE: A recent update has added more courses and achievements, but more importantly players can now duke it out in a 2-4 player multiplayer mode on local or online networks (matchmaking performed through Game Center). What was already an amazingly addictive title has squeezed out a little extra fun and is worth grabbing more than ever before. First there was Stick Golf and the verdict was good. Now, there's Super Stick Golf and Noodlecake Games don't just deserve a hearty golf-clap,…

Infinity Blade Review

Infinity Blade Review

After teasers that had many of us salivating for months on end, ChAIR Entertainment has finally released their gorgeous and engrossing on-rails RPG title Infinity Blade. You'll take the reigns of a luckless hero who is compelled to return to a cursed tower in order to avenge the death of his father, but once you meet your demise (and you will) the mantle of a hero and crusader will be passed to your successive generations until you can crush the God King once and for all. Over the cou…

Sentinel 3: Homeworld Review

Review Origin8 By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Sentinel 3: Homeworld Review

Sentinel 3: Homeworld by Origin8 is a powerful new entry in to the 'Sentinel' series of tower defense titles and not only does it demonstrate a level of visual polish that's stunning, it shows a cunning amount of gameplay depth as players slowly work their way through a challenging campaign. Homeworld fits in to the classic style of tower defense games, with towers being locked in to fixed positions around the winding paths that the enemy creeps follow. There's a strong focus on minim…

Push Panic Review

Review Appular By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Push Panic Review

At this point, trying to create something that feels new in the three-match style of arcade puzzle gameplay is one heck of a challenge, but Appular seem to have cracked the formula with Push Panic by taking a new direction. Instead of allowing blocks to disappear all by themselves, players will need to match up the tiles by tapping (or 'pushing') them, while preventing the screen from filling up and spilling over. At first the challenge seems almost unworthy of trying, merely awarding…

Wispin Review

Review Grumpyface Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Wispin Review

Wispin by Grumpyface Studios could almost be considered prototypical as far as arcade games go for the iPhone and while there are some minor details to be buffed out, it provides a handy benchmark for games yet to be released. 'But,' I hear you cry, 'WHAT is Wispin?'. Wispin is a cute bird-like creature that has to deal with multi-chromatic blobs, however the only way to defeat them is to match their color before running in to them. Players can control their character either via tilt…

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 Review

Review Warner Bros. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 Review

It's hard not to have been infected with Potter-fever over the last decade and while it's not a universally loved franchise, there is certainly enough fandom to justify the pairing with LEGO's popular game series. Matching the two is a recipe for obsessive compulsive gaming that stretches generations and even if you've played the title on other consoles you're likely to lose just as much time on this release. But first lets address the elephant in the corner, the controls; in particul…

Mushihimesama BUG PANIC Review

Review CAVE CO.,LTD. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Mushihimesama BUG PANIC Review

PLEASE NOTE: Mushihimesama BUG PANIC is currently restricted to 3rd gen or higher iDevices; please ensure that your device is compatible before purchasing this title. Mushihimesama BUG PANIC by CAVE is the third in a series of titles following the adventures of Reco, a princess that has a telepathic link to the bugs of the Shinju Forest. In typical fashion for the developer, the first two titles were vertical shoot'em-ups, however this latest title takes a risk as it departs from the…

Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit Review

I know you can't see my face at the moment, but if you could you'd notice the burning hunger in my eyes, the small beads of sweat at the edges of my brow and possibly the gnawing of my lip as I attempt to concentrate while I write. I really want to get back to playing Need for Speed™ Hot Pursuit. After a few breaths and a drink of water I've calmed down and I realize that it's a shame the game only features tilt controls, however barring my own stupidity the game never really fa…

Baseball Superstars® 2011 Pro Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Baseball Superstars® 2011 Pro Review

Sometimes it can be lonely at the top, but the Baseball Superstars® series from GAMEVIL has earned its position of dominance thanks to its in-depth and detailed baseball gameplay that remains lighthearted despite the intense management required to succeed. Their third outing (BS2011) is no less of a beast in terms of content, but additional refinements to the gameplay show that GAMEVIL aren't interested in resting on their laurels. The controls for BS2011 haven't seen much of a ch…
