Batman: Arkham Origins Review

Review Warner Bros. By James Gilmour, 5 months, 3 weeks ago
Batman: Arkham Origins Review

The Batman found in NetherRealm's latest iOS brawler Batman: Arkham Origins is not the Batman with which you might be familiar. Sure, he's got his flying fists of vengeance, and a utility belt packed with batarangs and gadgets. And yes, he dishes out violent justice to a neverending procession of Gotham's most sociopathic. However, this Batman has limits - limits placed upon him by Arkham Origin's freemium structure. Unlike the driven, relentless crime fighter depicted in DC's comics…

Type:Rider Review

Review Bulkypix By James Gilmour, 6 months ago
Type:Rider Review

Type:Rider is a difficult game to classify. If you boil it down to its bare bones, it's a stunt racer in the mould or Trials or Motoheroz. However, instead of a bike, you're controlling a colon. In fact, the entire game is constructed from letters and punctuation, with each level a kind of alphabet assault course. What pushes Type:Rider beyond the stunt racer classification is its physics-based contraptions and historical info-bursts. You see, as you work your way through the stages,…

Steampunk Tower Review

Steampunk Tower Review

Most tower defence games get their title from the numerous weapon towers which players must erect to protect themselves. In the case of Steampunk Tower, the developers have gone one step further, and put a bloody great tower in the middle of the screen to act as a support structure for your weapon towers. It's a bit like Inception, only with towers. Anyhow, this being a steampunk game, you must use a mixture of 1930s-era tech to fend off wave after wave of moisture-powered monstrositi…

Gunner Z Review

Gunner Z Review

You might be surprised to learn that the nastiest thing about BitMonster's zombie shooter Gunner Z isn't the zombies. Having apparently poured all of their warmth and creativity into last year's charming RPG adventure Lili, the ex-Epic staffers decided to muddy up the App Store waters with yet another undead-themed blaster. However, in their quest for the mighty dollar, the team has concocted a freemium framework which does its level best to impede your progress and hamper your enjoym…

HOOKBALL Review

Review Miguel Ramos By Dave Flodine, 6 months ago
HOOKBALL Review

We finally know the reason behind the destruction of the Mayan civilisation: They were playing Hookball. What is Hookball, you ask? Well, it's a game where too much is going on at once, and death is literally only seconds away. Despite the insanity of the sport, it's quite an addictive experience, but one which requires a large amount of dedication to master. The Mayan calendar in the middle of the stage acts as the game timer. Through the collection of gears, you add time to the cloc…

Trouserheart Review

Review 10tons Ltd By James Gilmour, 6 months 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…

Duet Game Review

Review Kumobius By James Gilmour, 6 months, 1 week ago
Duet Game Review

Things have been getting terribly twisty in the world of iOS gaming lately. Duet, the twitch-based game of rotation and avoidance, is the latest in the recent spat of lo-fi spinathons. Like Pivvot and Super Hexagon before it, Duet takes a simple concept, dresses it up in basic block colours, and then begins to mercilessly test your reflexes without giving a second thought to your sanity or self worth. You take charge of two coloured orbs which are linked by a circle. It's your job to…

The Cave Review

Review SEGA By Dave Flodine, 6 months, 1 week 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…

Buddy & Me Review

Review Sunbreak Games By Dave Flodine, 6 months, 1 week 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…

T.E.C 3001 Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 6 months, 2 weeks ago
T.E.C 3001 Review

No one can accuse T.E.C. 3001 of being ugly. As your robot runs through a virtual reality world collecting batteries for the benefit of humanity, the two-tone colour pallettes can't help but bring to mind nostalgic memories of '80s video games and Tron. Pretty visuals aside, though, you'd be forgiven for thinking that this is another run of the mill endless runner. In fact, though it does have endless mode, the heart of the game is its varied campaign challenges. There's your standar…

Drop That Candy Review

Review Greenfly Studios Ltd. By Dave Flodine, 6 months, 2 weeks ago
Drop That Candy Review

Drop That Candy introduces us to an adorable little creature named Gizmo, and encourages us to give him diabetes by indulging his never-ending appetite for sweets. Each stage presents a colourful concoction of candy that can be transferred to Gizmo's bowl via taps. If two or more pieces of the same colour are touching, they will disappear when tapped. Three stars will be awarded if you can rid the store of candy in the least number of taps, through clever manipulation of gravity and t…

Orborun Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 6 months, 2 weeks ago
Orborun Review

If I was describe Orborun using one of those 'it's x meets y' comparisons, I'd say Orborun is Super Monkey Ball meets Tron. By that I mean that you guide a spinning ball though a futuristic neon blue environment, not that you control a banana-crazed Jeff Bridges. In fact, your rotund robotic pal is trying to reach the end of each stage by rolling along tubular platforms, trying to collect as many points as possible without falling into the abyss below. Each stage starts with a choice…

Gentlemen...Ricochet! Review

Review Bïtse Games By Dave Flodine, 6 months, 3 weeks ago
Gentlemen...Ricochet! Review

Air hockey, mini-golf, snooker: These are games for the common man. A true gentleman requires something more discerning for his sophisticated palette. That is where Gentlemen...Ricochet! comes in. Not only does it allow you to mingle with the upper crust in the town of Smallbridge, but also acquire a handsome sum of tokens, and even a monocle if you're lucky. The gameplay of Gentlemen... Ricochet! is simple. You must flick your token to the end zone, using objects in the environm…

Shadow Vamp Review

Review Gamesmold By Dave Flodine, 6 months, 3 weeks 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, 6 months, 3 weeks 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…
