Letris 3: Word puzzle game Review

Review Ivanovich Games By Dave Flodine, 7 months, 3 weeks ago
Letris 3: Word puzzle game Review

App Store success stories can often come from the place you least expect. The Letris series is one such success, and it's a game franchise we haven't really had our eye on. The premise is simple: it's Tetris with letters - essentially a more single-minded version of Puzzlejuice. You create words through tapping letters, and try not to let your stack reach the top of the screen. Letris 3 is the latest in a series so popular that's it's apparently spawned its own game show, so we though…

Fling Theory Review

Review Coding Jar Studios By Dave Flodine, 10 months, 3 weeks ago
Fling Theory Review

In Fling Theory, you follow a particle through a journey of attraction, repulsion, destruction, and everything in-between. It's a physics flinger in the truest sense of the word. Each stage involves guiding your partcle through series of mazes and pipes, collecting the three stars and plenty of coins along the way. By changing the charge of your particle (yellow for positive, red for negative) you alter the way charged particles in the environment affect your path through the maze. By…

Pettson's Inventions Review

Review Filimundus AB By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Pettson's Inventions Review

Pettson and Findus are the stars of a series of successful children's books written and illustrated by Swedish author Sven Nordqvist. Pettson is a strange old farmer and Findus is his cat who walks on two legs and wears green-striped pants. In Pettson's Inventions, Findus wants to be able to fly, but they don't have the necessary parts to launch the frisky feline into the wild blue yonder, so Pettson asks the player if they will help find the parts by crafting other inventions to solve…

PrismaPix Review

Review Kris Pixton By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
PrismaPix Review

There's a reason why we at AppSpy recently reviewed Kris Pixton's latest release in the Pathpix series - it was to act as a refresher or reminder of the developer's particular puzzling style. Ultimately it acts as a perfect introduction to an entirely new (relatively speaking) puzzling experience in the form of PrismaPix, and while it may feature the same core goals of PathPix, the gameplay itself is fresh and utterly engrossing. Mixing elements of games such as Minesweeper, Fill-a-Pi…

PathPix Joy Review

Review Kris Pixton By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
PathPix Joy Review

Pathpix Joy is the fourth game in the Pathpix series. What is Pathpix you ask? Well we could tell you to go check out our reviews of the original, but we're going to be nice and tell you here. Pathpix is a favorite amongst puzzle games here at AppSpy. Andrew has made his way through the multiple offerings while all these years later, I'm still playing the original. It's elegant, doesn't require too much straining of your brainy lobes, and upon completion of a level, offers not only the…

Typing Maniac Review

Review MetroGames By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Typing Maniac Review

If you haven't had a crack at Typing Maniac on Facebook, I heartily recommend giving it a go - while you may not be the best hardcore gamer around, you might just be able to out-type your friends to a first place victory. However Typing Maniac for iOS devices by MetroGames is a slightly different thing altogether - where the browser version makes great use of keyboard skills, translating the game to depend on your texting skills isn't quite as smooth. This is mostly thanks to the vert…

Reiner Knizia's Yoku-Gami Review

Review Meritum Soft d.o.o. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Reiner Knizia's Yoku-Gami Review

With plenty of board games already under his belt, Reiner Knizia has turned his hand at producing a simpler puzzle game for the App Store. Yoku-Gami is the result of this collaboration with developer Meritum Soft and you'll need to put your math-hats on to make headway in this puzzler. Whether you choose the Endless, Arcade or Level mode, the basic gameplay remains the same. Players are presented with a 6x6 grid filled with numbers and to clear them off the board you'll need to select…

Numb3rs™ - The Game Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Numb3rs™ - The Game Review

Is it just me or are TV shows scrambling to make games now? CBS Interactive along with Chillingo have released 'Numb3rs™ - The Game' and in a refreshing turn for the better this who-dun-it show isn't being paired with an adventure game. Nope, instead of searching for hidden objects and pressing witnesses you'll take part in the fantasy mathematics of Numb3rs by solving numerical puzzles. Charlie has developed yet another algorithm to locate the suspect in question, but as a budd…

So Long, Oregon! Review

Review Blinkbat Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
So Long, Oregon! Review

'So Long, Oregon!' by Blinkbat Games pokes fun at the classic edutainment title Oregan Trail and honestly, why shouldn't it? The distant echo of words like 'dysentery' still litter the cultural landscape and it was high time a game like this came along to bring closure to this painful chapter in the lives of many gamers. Almost everything about this title reaches for parody, from the old-school VGA/EGA style graphics to the inclusion of 'realistic' physics that are almost guaranteed t…

Green Jump Review

Review Baboonix LTD By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
Green Jump Review

Much like the boldness displayed by the creators of Veggie Samurai, Baboonix have developed a rather blatant Doodle Jump clone in Green Jump - the first official game for Greenpeace on the App Store. But it's not entirely without merit as Green Jump keeps things simple and most importantly, fun. Players need only to tilt their device to help slide their green crusader around as he jumps off clouds to escape the rising smog. As you climb in to the stratosphere you can collect letters t…

Simon Graham and the Extraordinary Timepiece, Book I Review

Review The App House By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Simon Graham and the Extraordinary Timepiece, Book I Review

'Simon Graham and the Extraordinary Timepiece, Book I' (deep breath) by The App House is an interesting experiment in trying to recapture what made the Professor Layton series on Nintendo's handhelds so popular. With its turn of the century 'period' style and dozens of interesting puzzles the game certainly steps in the right direction, but will players dive in to the world of Simon Graham long enough to wait for 'Book II'? Most of the game's puzzles are touch-driven, allowing players…

Chromixa Review

Review Wet Nose Design Ltd By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 4 months ago
Chromixa Review

Chromixa began life as an art installation based on creator Simon Watson's fascination with light. A handful of development time later and we have a light based puzzle game for the iphone. The goal is to create shapes of a solid colour out of overlaying smaller pieces of different colours, much like a jigsaw. Control is all touch and drag. Upon touching a piece, it can be dragged anywhere on screen or the large wheel can be used to rotate it. If you ever get confused about which colou…

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire 2010 Review

Review Beeline Interactive, Inc. By Kelly Mitchell, 4 years, 6 months ago
Who Wants To Be A Millionaire 2010 Review

Based on the popular television show and board game, Who Wants to be a Millionaire offers players a chance in the hot seat to test their knowledge against a database of almost 1000 questions with new questions being added regularly. The gameplay contains the same classic elements as the television show. Players must successfully answer 15 multiple choice questions in a row to win the game and there are three lifelines there to help you; 50/50, phone a friend and ask the audience. The…

Brain Challenge 2: Think Again! Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 10 months ago
Brain Challenge 2: Think Again! Review

After a quirky little game on the Nintendo DS challenged people to train their brains, a slew of games from developers tried to cash in on this "mini-game" craze. Brain Challenge 2: Think Again! (BC2) by Gameloft is yet another in the brain training genre, but thankfully it's also probably one of the best currently available. The mini-games are controlled by touching to confirm your selection from a range of possible answers. The buttons can be fairly small on some of the games, so la…
