Trouserheart Review

Review 10tons Ltd By James Gilmour, 11 months, 3 weeks ago
Trouserheart Review

Is a hero still a hero when you can see his underpants? Man of Steel director Zack Snyder says no. Luckily for the star of affable top-down hack-and-slash game Trouserheart, developer 10tons believes that heroism can't be killed by visible underwear. In fact, in Trouserheart, the revealing of our protagonist's boxers is the catalyst for level-upon-level of action and adventure. Having had his pantaloons nabbed by a cheeky klepto goblin, Trouserheart's kingly star decides to set off on…

The Cave Review

Review SEGA By Dave Flodine, 11 months, 3 weeks ago
The Cave Review

The Cave is a funny game about horrible people. You take control of three out of a possible seven playable characters who enter the cave in search of what they desire most. The Cave itself is the game's main character, providing narration and offering insights to the adventurers as they descend further down, and engage in morally questionable actions in search of their goal. At its core it's an adventure game by way of puzzle-platformer. The ultimate question, of course, is how this P…

Lost Echo Review

Review KickBack By Dave Flodine, 11 months, 3 weeks ago
Lost Echo Review

Imagine if you will that an encounter with your partner at an ice cream shop could lead you to question the very fabric of reality. Sound unlikely? Well, that's what happens to Greg, the protagonist of Lost Echo. A casual meeting and a flash of white light later, and suddenly he is the only person who can remember his girlfriend. That's just the start of the mystery, of course. We'll refrain from discussing further as the plot is one of the main things the game has going for it. The i…

Buddy & Me Review

Review Sunbreak Games By Dave Flodine, 11 months, 4 weeks ago
Buddy & Me Review

Some people make the case that if a game world is inviting and spectacular enough, other deficiencies can be overlooked. Now, that's not to say that the gameplay of Buddy & Me is all bad, but it's probably fair to say the its visuals are its strongest feature. You play as a young boy whose dreams take place a magical realm full of lush forests, serene lakes, and picturesque backdrops of mountains and clouds. The world has a ethereal quality, and some of the vistas as the forest gi…

Shadow Vamp Review

Review Gamesmold By Dave Flodine, 1 year ago
Shadow Vamp Review

When the trailer was released for Shadow Vamp, we at AppSpy were quite excited. The concept of rotating an island to cast shadows from buildings in order to help a vampire get back to his crypt was not only new and novel, but also looked like a lot of fun. Well now that we've gotten our hands on the game, we can tell you that while the core concept is still delightful, sadly its execution leaves something to be desired. To move your sun-shy vampire around you use the analogue stick o…

Dead Effect Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 1 year ago
Dead Effect Review

Out in the cold depths of space, the hibernation pods open on the ESS Meridian. Groggy and confused, you make your way out to find that the ship is under attack from a virus that has turned the crew in flesh eating monsters. Having brought the communication systems online, you receive guidance from an eccentric doctor as you explore the vessel, and try to find out what the hell has happened. We're not the only ones getting a System Shock 2 vibe here right? Dead Effect is a pretty sta…

Infinity Blade III Review

Infinity Blade III Review

So here we are again. Infinity Blade has returned for what may be its final episode of slashtastic god-battering action. The world is bigger, the weapons are more plentiful, and the RPG elements have been applied with a little more vigour. There's even a more traditional linear structure, which funnels your warriors through specific stages and locations in a set order. But, while the beast may have grown and visited an armoury, its beating heard remains unchanged. Infinity Blade III i…

Call of Duty®: Strike Team Review

Call of Duty®: Strike Team Review

When is a first-person shooter not a first-person shooter? When it's also a tactical third-person RTS. In an apparent effort to give iOS gamers a Call of Duty game which harnesses the full potential of the touchscreen interface, UK developer The Blast Furnace has tried to capture the best of both worlds: a fully-fledged Call of Duty FPS which also let players command their squad from a drone's-eye view. The result is a Call of Duty: Strike Team, a game which tugs you in two different…

Abyss Attack Review

Abyss Attack Review

Abyss Attack is an endless-runner in the garb of a shmup. Here are your instructions: shoot everything, play till you die, use the currency to upgrade your craft, and try to overcome the temptation to spend real money on upgrades. To control your underwater craft, you simply drag your finger around the screen. You fire automatically, while picking up  packages will change your weapon. These packages usually contain equippable power-ups like blades and bombs. Each stage ends with…

Terraria Review

Terraria Review

Terraria has been a popular PC title since 2011, only making its way to consoles and iOS this year. Its brand of expansive exploration combined with creation and crafting abilities have has earned it the label "the 2D Minecraft”. As it's already well-established as an enjoyable craft-'em-up, our main concern was whether the game had made the leap to the App Store in one piece. The answer: mostly. You start by customising your character's features and inhabiting one of three rand…

Kid Tripp Review

Review Michael Burns By James Gilmour, 1 year, 1 month ago
Kid Tripp Review

Freddie Mercury once sang that, "Pain is so close to pleasure". Though we suspect he wasn't singing about tough-as-nails pixel-art auto-runners like Kid Tripp, he might as well have been. Like the 8-bit platformers of old, Kid Tripp is designed to test your both your memory and your reflexes to breaking point, in the hope of delivering the ultimate gaming reward: the thrill of a victory snatched from the jaws of defeat. And, for the most part, Kid Tripp fulfils its brutal ambitions.…

Tiny Thief Review

Review Rovio Stars Ltd. By James Gilmour, 1 year, 2 months ago
Tiny Thief Review

In the often humourless, frequently bullet-riddled world of gaming, a little charm goes a long way. Tiny Thief, the genre-straddling adventure puzzle mash-up from 5 Ants Games has enough charm to rescue an entire battalion of macho, grey cover shooters from their gravel-voiced funk, and still have a bit left over to make a funnel web spider look cute. As the title suggests, you take control of a pint-sized pickpocket whom you must guide to an exit without being spotted. To do this, yo…

Prince of Persia® The Shadow and the Flame Review

Review Ubisoft By James Gilmour, 1 year, 2 months ago
Prince of Persia® The Shadow and the Flame Review

Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame certainly looks the part. The ancient dungeons and booby-trapped palaces from the 1993 original have been handsomely fleshed out with an extra dimension for this iOS remake. Our gymnastic hero has apparently been hanging out with the Forgotten Sands-era prince, and has learned a few of the youngster’s acrobatic moves, including a natty backflip. He also engages in swordplay, which echoes the wait-and-parry system found in the Ubisoft&rsq…

Sky Tourist Review

Review Full Phoenix By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 2 months ago
Sky Tourist Review

When the day to day grind gets a bit too much, a vacation the perfect way to unwind and put all our worries in perspective. As we adults often lack the innocent imagination of children, most of us wouldn't consider taking a trip outside our own galaxy. Well, that's exactly what Sky Tourist's protagonist Petey did, and it's your job to keep the little tyke safe. Petey travels through through distant planets in a unique way: he is suspended on a rope by two rockets located on either sid…

Pacific Rim Review

Pacific Rim Review

Pacific Rim is a silly, but enjoyable summer blockbuster that involves giant robots punching giant monsters. Obviously, a movie tie-in game was inevitable, and the core concept of Jaegers vs Kaiju is perfect video game fodder. The developer of Pacific Rim on iOS decided to emulate the gameplay of Infinity Blade, which again is a really great fit for the combat-heavy subject matter. It's just a pity the execution failed live up to its potential. If you're familiar with Infinity Bl…
