Cut the Rope 2 Review

Review ZeptoLab UK Limited By James Gilmour, 9 months, 2 weeks ago
Cut the Rope 2 Review

It's taken Om Nom four games to escape the confines of his various cardboard prisons, but Cut the Rope 2 finally sees him out in the wild, and making new friends. These extra characters and their unique abilities help to define Cut the Rope 2 as more ambitious puzzler with a slightly broader scope. However, the additional gameplay permutations - and new in-app purchase system - also run the risk of diluting the simple but potent formula which made the original game so compelling. The…

Jet Car Stunts 2 Review

Review True Axis By James Gilmour, 9 months, 2 weeks ago
Jet Car Stunts 2 Review

While there's no shortage of racers on the App Store, there aren't many which can claim to be as downright brutal as Jet Car Stunts 2. Like its 2009 predecessor, it's a game about precision. In fact, almost every other aspect of Jet Car Stunts 2 seems to have been streamlined to force players to zero-in on the game's unapologetically raw racing core. The visuals are clean, crisp, and simple, serving only to give you a strip of virtual tarmac to aim for. There is no background music, j…

Gravity Blocks - The Last Rotation Review

Review Max Gittel By Dave Flodine, 10 months ago
Gravity Blocks - The Last Rotation Review

Meet the Gravity Blocks. There's the mint tea-obsessed Henry. There's Dr Zoidblock, who is working on a zombie vaccine. Blockman loves to recycle, while Blox gets a kick out of removing pesky wormholes. Each block appears in his own set of levels in Gravity Blocks: The Last Rotation, a block-puzzler which requires you to guide your square heroes to a goal by playing around with gravity. Usually you'll find yourself directing the lead block towards a dot on the screen. Other blocks als…


Walking Dead: The Game - Season 2 Review

Review Telltale Inc By James Gilmour, 10 months, 1 week ago
Walking Dead: The Game - Season 2 Review

The first episode of The Walking Dead: Season 2 pulls no punches. If you hoped there would be any light at the end of season one's dark and mouldering tunnel, then this short, sharp establishing act will brutally bash those hopes to death with a bloody rock. After former protagonist Lee's unfortunate exit from the series, his once ward Clementine has become something of a lone wolf. In this new episode, you control Clementine directly, helping her face everything from imminent starvat…

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Review

Review Rockstar Games By James Gilmour, 10 months, 1 week ago
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Review

With both Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City already available on the App Store, it was only a matter of time before Rockstar's first journey to San Andreas got the touchscreen treatment. Completing the PS2-era trilogy, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was the biggest and most ambitious sandbox Rockstar had ever created. This '90s flavoured tale of street gangs and turf warfare was an enormous game, both in terms of geography and scope. It offered players the chance to…

Luxuria Superbia Review

Review Tale of Tales By Dave Flodine, 10 months, 2 weeks ago
Luxuria Superbia Review

More and more, games designers are attmepting to include 'mature' content in their word. Usually, this translates into violence, swearing, and the inclusion of scantily-clad, impossibly proportioned women. However, that kind of mature content is often delivered in a fairly adolescent way. When playing Luxuria Superbia we felt that we were playing a truly adult game, one that might even make you feel a little uncomfortable. Luxuria Superbia is a game of touch and sensation. Patience p…

Galaxy Run Review

Review Spiel Studios By Dave Flodine, 10 months, 2 weeks ago
Galaxy Run Review

We should all know how the App Store works by now. A new game comes out, gains a lot of traction, and all of a sudden the store's virtual landscape is overrun with imitators. Considering how enjoyable last year's Run Roo Run was, it's surprising that the recently released Galaxy Run is one of only a few games we've seen approach its one-tap single screen platforming antics. It's up to the player to guide a stranded astronaut home via small doses of precision platforming. Each collecti…

The Wolf Among Us Review

Review Telltale Inc By James Gilmour, 10 months, 2 weeks ago
The Wolf Among Us Review

So, you've created one of the most critically-acclaimed comic book adaptations in the history of videogames. Where do you go from there? Well, in Telltale's case, the answer is straight back into the comic store to find inspiration in another fantastical tale of desperation, death, and moral ambiguity. The Wolf Among Us puts you in the gumshoes of Bigby Wolf, the cigarette smoking, ill-shaven sheriff of Fabletown. While he looks and speaks like a classic film noir protagonist - a gruf…

Burn the Rope 3D Review

Review Big Blue Bubble By Dave Flodine, 10 months, 3 weeks ago
Burn the Rope 3D Review

It's time for the one sentence review: Burn the Rope 3D is Burn the Rope in the third dimension. You're all most likely familiar with the gameplay of either Burn the Rope. You are presented with an image composed of rope, often of varying colour. Touching any spot on the rope and it will start burning. The flame will only stay alight if it travelling either horizontally or vertically, with vertical lengths burning much faster. The goal is to burn as much of the rope as possible.…

Icycle: On Thin Ice Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 10 months, 3 weeks ago
Icycle: On Thin Ice Review

As iOS gamers, we've been exposed to some weird scenarios over the years. Narky birds with porky vendettas; hungry green monsters which subsist entirely on dangling sugar lozenges – to us, these things are just another day in the App Store. Icycle: On Thin Ice is game about a naked man named Dennis, who finds himself riding a tricycle through ever-shifting landscapes. Originally we thought the game might be showing us a dream or nightmare scenario. Then Dennis gets hit by a fish…

Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse Review

Review Disney By James Gilmour, 10 months, 4 weeks ago
Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse Review

Trying recapture past glories is a dangerous pursuit. Just because something worked for an audience 20 years ago, doesn't mean it's going to play to modern tastes. However, that hasn't stopped Disney from taking another run its beloved platformer Castle of Illusion. Originally released on consoles, Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse draws inspiration from the 2D Mega Drive classic. Instead of a direct remake, however, this digital download is an all-new experience, featuring fre…

Strand Review

Strand Review

Long-time fans of AppSpy should know of our love for puzzle games. Still, when a developer takes a simple idea such as connecting together numbers and circles by lines, then realises it with the level of style evident in Strand, it's difficult not to take note. Each board in the game features a group of circles. These circles are identified by a number, which identifies how many connections need to be attached to it. To create a strand and make a connection, you drag your finger from…

Baby Lava Bounce Review

Review Jared Bailey By Dave Flodine, 11 months ago
Baby Lava Bounce Review

As gamers, we have certain expectations about he ways our virtual worlds behave. For instance, anyone who's played a platformer - especially one starring a plumber or hedgehog - will know that lava is bad. Baby Lava Bounce has come to change our conceptions. Instead of dealing firey death to all in its path, perhaps lava just wants to be loved. Problem is, rather than red hot hugs and kisses, these lava blocks can only express their affection through wanton destruction. Each lava has…

EPOCH.2 Review

EPOCH.2 Review

Epoch. was Uppercut Games' answer to the question "how do you get a third-person cover shooter to work on a touchscreen?" The solution the team hit upon was to ditch floating joysticks altogether, and use an entirely gesture-based system to let you spring in and out of cover, target enemies, and launch special attacks. The sequel, Epoch.2, is very much a retread of the first game. It's got a bigger campaign, more weapon and upgrade options, and some new robotic enemies and bosses to t…

Joe Dever's Lone Wolf Review

Review Bulkypix By James Gilmour, 11 months, 1 week ago
Joe Dever's Lone Wolf Review

Gamebooks may be a niche market, but it is amazing how many people have fond memories of them. Relying on people's nostalgia for the '80s has worked for many gamebook publishers, and now Joe Dever, author of the infamous Lone Wolf series has thrown his hat into the fray with a new four part saga. With the release of Steve Jackson's excellent Sorcery! earlier this year, however, Lone Wolf has its work cut out for it. It's an interesting take on the genre, but one which creates as many p…
