Dice Jockey Review

Review Visionaries 777 By Dave Flodine, 12 months ago
Dice Jockey Review

Whether you play Monopoly, the craps table at your local casino, or a game of Warhammer, we're sure you're all familiar with dice - those little cubes of luck and chance. Dice Jockey takes a little bit of a different tack, demanding you learn the layout of a six-sided die, and use this knowledge to align and match face values to create combos and complete levels. Dragging a die with your finger will roll it along the game grid. The aim is to line up a series of dice so that they all d…

Fighting Fantasy: House of Hell Review

Review Tin Man Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 8 months ago
Fighting Fantasy: House of Hell Review

I was never a Fighting Fantasy sort of person - I was, in fact, more of a Choose Your Own Adventure kid - but regardless, the same is true of all of them. You'd play along for a few rounds and some kids would take far more seriously than others, but inevitably you'd give up and 'bookmark' your way to the seemingly impossible ending (possibly ignoring dice rolls in the process). House of Hell is the second of Tin Man Games' adaptions of the Fighting Fantasy series by Steve Jackson and…

Judge Dredd: Countdown Sector 106 Review

Review Tin Man Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 2 months ago
Judge Dredd: Countdown Sector 106 Review

We've reviewed a couple gamebooks here at AppSpy before. For those unfamiliar with the genre, think of it as a cross between a 'Choose Your Own Adventure' book and an RPG. In fact that's exactly what the Fighting Fantasy series was, having you make choices as you read, but also gaining stats and having to roll dice to get passed tricky situations or to win combat. Tin Man Games have been quite prolific in resurrecting this format digitally for the iPhone and iPad, with most tales being…

Gamebook Adventures 7: Temple of the Spider God Review

Review Tin Man Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Gamebook Adventures 7: Temple of the Spider God Review

Most of us who grew up in the 1980s remember the 'Choose your own Adventure' books, but how many remember the 'Fighting Fantasy' series? It was a style of choose your own adventure that involved using dice to roll up a character with stats, and then during the game, dice rolls were required for skill checks and combat. Success or failure would change the outcome of the story, and the outcome more often than not was death. Temple of the Spider God is a tale that takes this style of gam…

Janryumon PLUS (Mahjong) Review

Review NCSOFT By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Janryumon PLUS (Mahjong) Review

Janryumon by NCSoft is simultaneously the most amazing and the most frustrating game I've played on an iOS device and this includes games I've either praised like a gibbering fan-boy or scalded for mistakes that go beyond basic flaws. This is because Janryumon is a client to play Reach Mahjong online against other players around the world, but more importantly the gameplay behind Mahjong is so rich - is so complex - that unless you are practiced in the game already, you WILL fail and f…

Dice Soccer! Review

Review LambdaMu Games By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 2 months ago
Dice Soccer! Review

It's finally happened! The pairing you were waiting for. The fast paced action of soccer combined with the slow methodical tension of a dice roll. I guess both games require luck but while an odd pairing, Dice Soccer is a pretty addictive title. You are the manager of a soccer team. Starting in a training camp you have to win or draw matches to earn enough stars to move up the ranks and compete in the big leagues. You have three lines of players. Three forwards, three defense, and a g…

YAHTZEE™ Adventures Review

Review Electronic Arts By Kym Holmes, 4 years, 8 months ago
YAHTZEE™ Adventures Review

If you are or were a fan of Hasbro's scoring die game Yahtzee, then EA's iPhone port of Yahtzee Adventures offers a great new way to play an old favourite. The main adventure mode has you playing against various NPCs around the world to hone your Yahtzee skills and try to beat them all. The controls are well thought out allowing you to shake the iphone to roll the die or simply click the cup to roll them. You then click the die you wish to hold after each roll until you choose your be…

Struck: Strategy + Luck Review

Review Art Whirled By Kelly Mitchell, 4 years, 9 months ago
Struck: Strategy + Luck Review

Looking for a puzzle game that offers something different to traditional board games? As the name suggests, Struck is a puzzle game in which players must rely on their own strategy and luck in order to win. The basic goal is for players to occupy all four of their opponent's goal squares whist blocking them from capturing your own. To roll the dice players must shake their iPhone and then tap the screen to move their pieces along the board. The number of moves a player can make each t…

Str8ts 6x6 Review

Review Syndicated Puzzles By Damian Chiappara, 5 years, 1 month ago
Str8ts 6x6 Review

Str8ts 6x6 is a self proclaimed Sudoku rival that follows similar rules but varies it up a bit. To simplify the game’s involved rules and instructions, the game is a much larger scale version of Sudoku, where players will have to place numbers in a 6x6 grid, rather than a 3x3 grid. Each number can only be used once in each column and row, and players must fill in all spaces on the game board to complete the level. To place numbers, players tap on a square and then tap on the num…

PGA Golo Golf Dice Review

Review Pick Up And Play By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 2 months ago
PGA Golo Golf Dice Review

PGA Golo Golf Dice is the iPhone's portal to PGA.com's online version of the table-top dice game of the same name. For a game that relies on something as simple as rolling dice it's a remarkably complex game of luck and strategy. There's little to the controls with the dice being shaken each round or rolled out at the touch of a button. The interface serves more as a method of tracking your progress, so there's little room for complexity here. Despite only being a game played with di…
