Hot Springs Story Review

Review Kairosoft Co.,Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Hot Springs Story Review

Spare me a moment and consider one of the few, but very real concerns of reviewing video games. Last year I had to fortune (or is that misfortune?) of spending a lot of time with Game Dev Story (GDS) by Kairosoft, but it's addictive gameplay almost ruined a week's worth of scheduled work. Now I'm playing their follow-up, Hot Springs Story (HSS) and much like the virtual game developers of their previous title, these very real developers have not simply leveled up, they've found the rea…

6th Planet Review

Review Monkube Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
6th Planet Review

It takes a lot of confidence to revive a classic type of gameplay like 'Lander' with the intent of creating a compelling video game, but Monkube have managed to pull it off, though I suspect the incredible artistic talent backing the project certainly helped. '6th Planet' follows the journey of a space-module confined monkey bound for Saturn as he attempts to avoid dangerous hazards while conserving enough fuel to make it to each subsequent base. You're only given two controls to mane…

Tiny Wings Review

Review Andreas Illiger By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Tiny Wings Review

UPDATE: It seems I must have been having internet issues, but leaderboards do exist for Openfeint for this title, however Game Center is not yet implemented, though is on its way. Elegance in gameplay is a hard concept to nail down, but sometimes minimalism in gameplay can have more of an impact than any flashy button-mashing action title could ever dream to accomplish. With little more than a single tap to control a near-flightless bird, Tiny Wings by Andreas Illiger evokes instants…

Starfront: Collision™ FREE Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Starfront: Collision™ FREE Review

Please Note: Due to Gameloft's new release system, the title is only free as a 'demo' with an in-app purchase unlocking the rest of the content. This does require an internet connection of some kind for your device, however given that this requires 3rd Gen or higher iOS device, this should be available in one form or another. The current release price is US$6.99 - please adjust accordingly for your region and be aware that sales/updates could affect this pricing regularly. As a genre,…

JellyCar 3 Review

Review Disney By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
JellyCar 3 Review

The JellyCar series has finally spawned a new sequel and unlike 2009's deviation in style, this release by Walaber and Disney has returned to the whacky time-trial racing in the (now) free original title. With little more than your moxxy, a world made out of jellow and a few power-ups, you'll need to take on a variety of levels in an attempt to complete them in the fastest time possible. Tapping the sides of the screen will accelerate or brake in the direction indicated, while tipping…

NBA JAM by EA SPORTS™ Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
NBA JAM by EA SPORTS™ Review

There's only one thing holding me back from starting off the review by declaring NBA JAM by EA Sports an instant must-buy - there's no co-operative or multiplayer modes of any sort available. For a game that so lovingly recreates one of the Arcade and home console's most exciting basketball-related titles, it seems almost unforgivable that I can't share the fun with a friend or slam a firey ball of doom in the face of a random online player. Coming to grips with the controls of NBA JA…

League of Evil Review

Review Ravenous Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 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, 6 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, 6 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, 7 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, 7 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, 7 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, 7 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

Sentinel 3: Homeworld Review

Review Origin8 By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 8 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…
