Pyro Jump Review

Review Pinpin Team By Alex Beech, 1 year, 2 months ago
Pyro Jump Review

It's hard not to be instantly attracted to Pyro Jump's premise. The story of a small flame that has fallen in love with an origami princess is an unusual romantic tale, one that can only end in tragedy. But, while Pinpin Team's pinpoint-platformer is endearing, it struggles to live up to its promise. You control all of Pyro Jump's action with a single tap. Touching the screen launches the little flame into the air, propelling him outwards from his current position. Holding the screen…

Atomic Fusion: Particle Collider Review

Review Bytesized Studios Inc., By Alex Beech, 1 year, 2 months ago
Atomic Fusion: Particle Collider Review

There are few games that try to utilise the periodic table as a gameplay mechanic. Bytesized Studios has done just this, howeve,r with Atomic Fusion: Particle Collider, a collect-'em-up that mixes elements from Ikaruga, Osmos, and basic chemistry. Starting as tiny a hydrogen molecule, your aim is to build the little element up from Helium to Lithium, right the way  to Ununoctium, the largest theoretical element. To do this, you must gather positive and negative energy charge…

Mega Jump 2 Review

Review Get Set Games By Alex Beech, 1 year, 3 months 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, 1 year, 3 months 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…

Walking Dead: The Game - Season 2 Review

Review Telltale Inc By James Gilmour, 1 year, 4 months 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…

Galaxy Run Review

Review Spiel Studios By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 4 months 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, 1 year, 4 months 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…

Letris 3: Word puzzle game Review

Review Ivanovich Games By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 4 months 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, 1 year, 5 months 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…

Don't Shoot Yourself! Review

Review Ayopa Games LLC By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Don't Shoot Yourself! Review

“Don't shoot yourself!” Once just sensible piece of advice, this statement is now the title of an iOS game. This game has a simple premise: survive long enough to shoot 100 bullets. How hard can that be? As you might expect, it's tougher than it sounds. You take control of a small arrow which finds itself trapped inside a number of oddly-shaped prisons. Normally this solitude would be good for such activities as introspection and self-discovery. But the arrow has a problem…

Hot Mess Review

Review Nicholas Ralabate By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Hot Mess Review

Hot Mess caused a bit of controversy when it was banned from the App Store not once but twice. You see, Hot Mess is a game about burning passion. More specifically, it's a game about locating burning passion, and then dousing those white hot with flames with a jet of cold water. You take control of a fire-fighting robot, who has been sent into a hotel to save the residents from a series of blazes. After an unexpected electric shock, the robot's targeting systems go haywire, causing hi…

Pocket Titans Review

Review Kumotion Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months 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, 1 year, 5 months 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, 1 year, 5 months 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…
