Mega Jump 2 Review

Review Get Set Games By Alex Beech, 6 months, 1 week ago
Mega Jump 2 Review

Game development is all about making tweaks. A change here, an improvement there, and pretty soon a bare-bones idea is transformed into a stunning game. Thus, having already built a solid foundation with vertical platformer Mega Jump, you'd hope that Get Set Games could perfect is monster-centric take on the genre with the sequel. Mega Jump 2's tilt-based action is as responsive as ever, with you directing tiny hero Redford back-and-forth across the screen with subtle hand moveme…

Jet Car Stunts 2 Review

Review True Axis By James Gilmour, 6 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…

Cabela’s Big Game Hunter Review

Cabela’s Big Game Hunter Review

If you've ever tried one of those pro buck hunter games in the arcade, you know how surprisingly enjoyable hunting games can be. They lure us gamers in with the promise of points and the thrill of the chase. And, let's be honest, it can be quite novel to be shooting something other than humans for a change. Cabela's Big Game Hunter is a hunting sim from Cabela and Activision which provides a wide variety of locales, a host of wild game to shoot, and a decent arsenal of weaponry with w…


Letris 3: Word puzzle game Review

Review Ivanovich Games By Dave Flodine, 7 months, 2 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…

Strand Review

Review Beachfront Media LLC By Dave Flodine, 7 months, 4 weeks ago
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…

Pocket Titans Review

Review Kumotion Ltd By Dave Flodine, 8 months, 2 weeks ago
Pocket Titans Review

Pocket Titans is a turn based strategy title that's easy for anyone to pick up and play, and utilizes a unique control system. In most turn based strategy games, you use movement and action points to put your character in the most advantageous position possible, allowing you attack your enemy while avoiding repercussions. This priciple still applies to Pocket Titans, but instead of moving players, you move the landscape. Each stage takes place on a five by five square grid. Each row…

Naught 2 Review

Review Blue Shadow Games S.L. By James Gilmour, 8 months, 2 weeks ago
Naught 2 Review

Naught was one of the better silhouette platformer-puzzlers to appear on the App Store in 2011. In it, you took control of a bipedal cat, whom you had to slide around cavernous levels by tilting your iPhone or iPad. It was tricky, but once you get a handle on the angles it was a pretty good time. Now, the spelunking feline has returned in a new game featuring spruced up animations, faster levels, and some seriously testing bosses. Most of these changes make Naught 2 a prettier, more e…

Soccer Moves Review

Review Fuzzy Logic (Pty) Ltd By Dave Flodine, 8 months, 2 weeks ago
Soccer Moves Review

Soccer Moves' turn-based soccer gameplay presents a profound metaphysical question. Sure, the goal is to move, pass, and score a goal by outwitting your opposition. However, your teammates are exact replicas of one another, raising a deeper question about the various roles we assume and shift between in the games we play. We're just kidding - it's about balls and that. Instead of employing the grids used in most turn based strategy titles, Soccer Moves uses a radial system to co…

Thor: The Dark World - The Official Game Review

Review Gameloft By James Gilmour, 8 months, 2 weeks ago
Thor: The Dark World - The Official Game Review

Thor is one of the more straightforward superheroes in Marvel's expansive catalogue. Son of Odin, the allfather and ruler of of Asgard, Thor has no alter-ego or mysterious origin story. He's a god, who comes from a realm of gods, and who likes to hit things with a big hammer. However, Gameloft's free-to-play brawler Thor: The Dark World - The Official Game is anything but straightforward. In this messy top-down smash-'em-up, our hero's combat prowess is sidelined in favour of man…

Mega Dead Pixel Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 8 months, 3 weeks ago
Mega Dead Pixel Review

So there's this happy little pixel falling through space. If it paints enough shapes or collects enough pixels, it will one day become the mega pixel, a wondrous being of liberation and. It's a fun existance while it last, but the ending of our story is always the same: the pixel crumbles back to its original form, and eventually is snuffed out of existence. A moment of silence, please. Mega Dead Pixel is an endless runner - or an endless faller, if you prefer. You move a descending p…

Mimpi Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Dave Flodine, 8 months, 3 weeks ago
Mimpi Review

Mimpi is a game for anyone who has ever wondered what's going on inside their dog's mind when its asleep. The answer, according to this arty puzzle platformer, is that man's best friend is exploring bizarre abstract environments, manipulating clouds, and chatting with Chihuahua headed mermaids. You control Mimpi using the arrows on screen. The movement and jump animations are a little stiff, but luckily, precision platforming is not what the majority of the game is about. Instead, th…

Fright Heights Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By James Gilmour, 8 months, 3 weeks ago
Fright Heights Review

Games which revolve around hotel management usually involve trying to fill up your holiday inn by attracting as many guests as possible. Chillingo's spooky scare-'em-up Fright Heights, on the other hand, is all about scaring guests away. It's essentially a block puzzler in which you arrange guests and ghosts throughout the hotel to clear out floors and empty the building. Each floor has a fear rating which must be hit in order wipe it from the screen. To cajole your guests into paroxi…

ARC Squadron: Redux Review

Review Psyonix By Dave Flodine, 9 months ago
ARC Squadron: Redux Review

Last year, developer Psyonix released Arc Squadron, a well-reviewed space shooter with great controls and a load of content. Now almost a year later, the dev has restructured the game, introduced a few balancing tweaks, and made the whole experience free-to-play. This is Arc Squadron: Redux. As your ship (and the galaxy) is under attack by the mysterious and violent Guardians, humanity needs all the help it can get. You take control of a lowly janitor who finds himself in the cockpit…

DEAD TRIGGER 2 Review

DEAD TRIGGER 2 Review

In a world filled with derivative grey zombie shooters, how do you make yours stand out from the shambling crowd. In the case of Madfinger's 2012 hit Dead Trigger, the answer was simple: make it look fantastic. However, though it was definitely one of the prettiest games on the App Store, it was let down by repetitive gameplay, dull enemies, and freemium grind fatigue. With Dead Trigger 2, Madfinger has attempted to inject some variety into the series, adding new zombie types, more va…

Batman: Arkham Origins Review

Review Warner Bros. By James Gilmour, 9 months 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…
