World War Z Review

World War Z Review

World War Z is a conflicted game. On the one hand, its developer has tried to revamp the first-person shooter genre by creating a new control system tailor-made for touchscreen devices. But, while the controls may be progressive, the gameplay all too frequently lapses into uninspired - and frankly quite tedious - shoot and collect missions. It's not all bad news, though. In fact, World War Z's drab, grey surface betrays stabs or real colour and excitement. The game is probably at is s…

Warhammer Quest iPad Review

Review Rodeo Games By James Gilmour, 10 months, 2 weeks ago
Warhammer Quest iPad Review

If you can remember the days when games were played on tables, not tablets, then you might recall Game Workshop’s Warhammer Quest. Now, Rodeo Games has brought the dice and cardboard RPG into the digital realm, attempting to encapsulate the treasure-seeking, goblin mashing thrills of the boardgame in an iPhone and iPad app. The good news for all of us is that they’ve made a pretty good job of it. The first thing you’ll need is familiarise yourself with your character…

Little Luca Review

Review Glowingpine Studios HB By Dave Flodine, 10 months, 2 weeks ago
Little Luca Review

Little Luca has received comparisons to Bumpy Road. This is largely because it's a game that put the player in control of the environment, rather than the protagonist. However, while Bumpy Road was an endless runner, Little Luca is a three star physics puzzler with a retro, pixel art aesthetic. Luca is a ball that is trying to replace all the stars in the sky. The goal of each level is to collect the three stars, while trying to reach the black hole that will transport you to the next…

Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD Review

Review CAPCOM By Dave Flodine, 10 months, 2 weeks ago
Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD Review

It's been over two years since Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney was released on the App Store, and fans have been eagerly awaiting the next two chapters in this trilogy ever since. Well the good news is that And Justice For All and Trails and Tribulations have arrived as part of the Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD. The bad news is that while the graphics have been sharpened up, there are a few niggling issues that do bring the whole experience down a little. The games ar…

Star Wars®: Knights of the Old Republic™ iPad Review

Review Aspyr Media, Inc. By James Gilmour, 10 months, 2 weeks ago
Star Wars®: Knights of the Old Republic™ iPad Review

In some circles, BioWare's Knights of the Old Republic is considered the finest Star Wars game ever devised. Released back in 2003, it successfully captured not only the action-adventure sensibilities of the source movies, but also the epic scope of the Star Wars universe. Not content to let the classic slide further into the past, developer Aspyr has ported the full game onto the iPad. Bar a few control tweaks, this iOS release is a near perfect recreation of the original Knights of…

Chuck the Muck Review

Review Kiz Studios By Dave Flodine, 11 months, 1 week ago
Chuck the Muck Review

Chuck yourself before you muck yourself! Sorry about that, but with a game title like Chuck the Muck it can be difficult not to make jokes. The title is also sort of misleading. Yes the game does indeed contain a muck, and as it is a physics flinger, there is certainly a high level of chucking, but the muck must be fed crystals (three in each level to be precise), and so the critter you control is the one being chucked around these single screen puzzles. The muck just looks on, and giv…


Dig! Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Dave Flodine, 11 months, 1 week ago
Dig! Review

What recourse does a failed archaeologist have when the museum funding him is hurting for business? Well as a last ditch effort (get it?), he might try and set up a dig site in his backyard, excavating the wonders of the Earth to be put on display, and the further he digs, the more valuable treasures he hopes to find. Dig is an arcade game where your shovel must excavate seventy five percent of the plot of land you have, hopefully discovering the five treasures hidden there before mov…


FREEQ Review

Review Psychic Bunny By Dave Flodine, 11 months, 2 weeks ago
FREEQ Review

Radio drama is making a comeback. Before television, people used to listen to serialised programming on their wireless, tuning into tales of mystery, intrigue, drama, and action. Games like Freeq show that the medium is still as engaging as ever, but perhaps that's also due to the interactivity. See, not only content with telling you a story of apocalypse and time travel, Freeq has you making choices to influence the outcome of this future that has yet to be written. Freeqing is a tec…


Dark Avenger Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 11 months, 3 weeks ago
Dark Avenger Review

In the last few years, the ARPG has exploded in popularity. For most of the 2000s, gamers were either playing Diablo II or one of the few games made to emulate it. This explosion in popularity even has the progenitor Diablo finding itself ill equipped to make a huge splash in the new market. It's of no surprise then that plenty of developers have tried to bring this style of game to IOS. These entires have met with various levels of success, and now Gamevil is throwing their hat into t…

Sorcery! Review

Review inkle By Dave Flodine, 11 months, 3 weeks ago
Sorcery! Review

Gamebooks have been on the App Store before. We've reviewed Gamebooks here at Appspy before. The problem with them has always had nothing to do with their digital representation (actually, the change to digital has made the experience more pleasant in a lot of ways), but more in that they are more book than game, and the game part is frankly underwhelming, leading to a lot of dead ends, and reliance on luck to get you through the fights. Well with the release of Sorcery!, Steve Jackson…

LEGO Batman: DC Super Heroes Review

Review Warner Bros. By Dave Flodine, 11 months, 3 weeks ago
LEGO Batman: DC Super Heroes Review

Let this review begin by saying this is a near perfect port of Lego Batman 2: DC Superheroes that was released last year on every other platform imaginable. That it finally came to iOS is no real surprise. If you enjoy the Lego games and haven't given this one a go, then you probably don't need to bother with the rest of this review. Everyone else, let's continue on. The first Lego Batman was a favourite of the series, but mainly focused on the caped crusader and his rogues gallery of…


Garden of Fear Review

Garden of Fear Review

Garden of Fear has a warning on its iTunes page. It cautions people who are scared easily from playing this game. Full disclosure, Dave cannot handle scary games. He's fine with horror films, but there's something about controlling the character involved in a horror scenario instead of just watching it that makes things all too real. For this reason, he tends to stay away from horror titles, and either as a cruel joke or just by providence, is given this game to review. You wake up in…


Ark of Sinners Advance Review

Ark of Sinners Advance Review

Those who travel in the RPG circles may be familiar with the Anima: Beyond Fantasy game system, but for those who aren't it's set in a strange hybrid fantasy world that has both futuristic and medieval elements to it. The latest release from Bulkypix is set within this dark and Gothic universe, and while Ark of Sinners has high aspirations in its Metroid/vania like gameplay, it falls desperately short of the mark. Most of the blame can be directed towards the game's flabby controls -…

Lumber Jacked Review

Lumber Jacked Review

That sense of deja vu you're feeling isn't surprising - we've seen this kind of skill-based platformer before, complete with its star-rating system based off completing the stage; collecting its bonus item; and crossing the finish line before a preset limit. Lumber Jacked is, in many ways (including its controls) very much the same game, but there is at least a twist. For one, it's decidedly harder to complete the three-star requirements as you need to complete all three requirements…

Dream Chaser Review

Dream Chaser Review

With so many endless runners, it relieves us game reviewers when we see a new idea brought to the table, as small a change as it may be. What can stand to infuriate us more than just an average entry into this genre is if the change ends being to the detriment of the whole experience. That's where we find ourselves with Dream Chaser, an endless runner that while having an endless mode also includes a story mode, where the mechanics and intricacies of the game are spread out alongside a…
