Alive4ever mini: Zombie Party Review

Alive4ever mini: Zombie Party Review

The first few levels of Alive4Ever Mini take place on a beach. We try not to be topical in our reviews here at AppSpy as topical never ages well, and our videos will always be with you long after current events are forgotten. Nevertheless, given the recent attack in Florida, reviewing this zombie game at this point in time is rather fortuitous. Luckily in this more stylized, cartoony edition of the Alive4Ever franchise, we are not dealing with creepy cannibals, just a good smattering o…

Heroes Call Review

Review Defiant Development By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Heroes Call Review

There's nothing inherently wrong with the freemium model in theory. A player can pick up the game for no cost, and if the gameplay is rewarding enough, the hooks will sink in, and the player wont mind shelling out a few dollars to stream-line their experience... or at least the pay walls won't be obtrusive enough to annoy the player away. Sadly Hereos Call by Defiant has not struck upon this balance, offering an intriguing hack and slash Diablo-esque experience, saturated by a choice b…

Mega Run - Redford's Adventure Review

Review Get Set Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Mega Run - Redford's Adventure Review

Eventually there comes a time when a gamer automatically hesitates approaching a free-to-play game on the App Store, if only because they've been burned so many times in the past; be it for poor gameplay; outrageous IAP; or obtrusive advertising. But amongst the ever-increasing pile is the kind of rare game that flips the table and says, "If we make a good game, then they'll pay us." 'Mega Run - Redford's Adventure' by Get Set Games is a classic platformer in a way that few similar ti…

Men in Black 3 Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Men in Black 3 Review

Let it not be said that all 'freemium' titles are bad - sure they have their huge flaws, but time enjoyed is time well spent. With that said, time wasted is time not enjoyed and definitely not well spent and this is where the genre comes in to contention: If you lack the motivation, then what are you playing for? Men in Black 3 slides uncomfortably in to this second problematic kind of thinking, albeit  presenting all the visual polish and flair Gameloft can muster, but it's not e…

Bee Leader Review

Review Flightless By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Bee Leader Review

Being a bee is not as glamorous as one might imagine. Sure there's the honey and flying around everywhere, but surprisingly a small insect has a lot of enemies that try to impede its progress in the hunt for nectar. Luckily bees can work as a team. You just have to find your little buddies first. Bee Leader is a day in the life of a bee. From sunrise to sunset, you buzz around a spherical world trying to collect all the nectar you can to fill up your hive's quota and get the highest s…

Rocket Fox Review

Rocket Fox Review

Sometimes a game can fail to come together, even if most of its individual parts aren't particularly lacking in polish, due to one critical feature failing to deliver. Despite the cute premise, presentation and fun gameplay ideas in Rocket Fox by Namco Bandai, the controls fall horribly short of what the game deserves. As the cute foxy protagonist 'Guy' you must set alight all of the rocket-flowers by bouncing on them. Each flower has a different effect, ranging from bouncing you high…

Run Run Die! Review

Review Voltic By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Run Run Die! Review

Designing a winning platformer for a device that is notorious touchy about its control quirks can make life hard for a developer. Run Run Die! by Voltic Games side-steps this problem by joining other auto-running games like The Impossible Game, tasking players with precise timing challenges that quickly reach maddening levels. The story goes a little something like this: You're a furry little mammal and a meteorite has crash-landed, setting you and your family on fire. To survive and…

Robbery Bob™ Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Robbery Bob™ Review

When being broken out of jail by a mysterious benefactor, I guess it only stands to reason that you'd be indebted to this person, even if he wishes you to perform the tasks that got you sent to the slammer in the first place. Unfortunately as Robbery Bob unfolds, you find this benefactor to be more and more unhinged, sending you into harm's way for increasingly baffling use of your ninja like pilfering skills. This is a game of stealth and steely resolve. Each level consists of a goal…

Acme Planetary Defense Review

Review Taptoon Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Acme Planetary Defense Review

When you stop and think about it for a moment, we humans must be colossal jerks. There's really no other reason that in so many games, TV shows and movies, our homeworld is under attack by a hostile alien force. Oh sure in Acme Planetary Defense, most of your time is spent knocking asteroids out of existence, but we're pretty sure that those asteroids are being lobbed by aliens. Not only cause nuclear missiles accompany them, but sometimes they rock up to pelt us with lasers, or just t…

Pinch Peeps Review

Review Everplay By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Pinch Peeps Review

Simple can often mean better, especially with the iPhone's unique strengths when it comes to control schemes. Pinch Peeps is not what we would call a puzzle game, but more a hand-eye coordination tool for younger gamers, where the goal is to use your thumb and finger to pair up cute and colorful creatures for your place on the high score leaderboards. There are two game modes available; timed, and endless. In timed mode the goal is to create as many pairs as fast as possible to stay t…

Jake Escapes HD Review

Review Just Funny Games S.r.l. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Jake Escapes HD Review

Jake isn't very bright - sure, he's the world's greatest thief, but stealing ultra-secret technology from the Government never ends well. Now he's caught up in the shadowy world of spies, agents and super criminals as they attempt to claim what Jake has stolen, so now he has to escape... up the side of a building. It's a flimsy premise to justify having someone springing their way up the side of a building, but you can take or leave the story as you dive in to the shallow, yet briefly…

Frenzy Pop Review

Review S A Zahir By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Frenzy Pop Review

Frenzy Pop is a lot to drink in. In this review we're going to see what bubbles under the surface and if there's a great platformer here or if the whole thing just fizzes out. Continuing with these puns would definitely be the last straw so let's have a look at this soda themed game. The levels are what one may call snack sized. You need to get to the vending machine at the end as quickly as possible. The speed in which you reach it signifies whether you get a bronze, silver, or gold…

Inotia 4 Review

Review Com2uS USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Inotia 4 Review

As it is, and so shall it always be, given the fullness of time, yet another sequel to a somewhat popular KRPG series makes its way on to the App Store. Inotia 4: Assassin of Berkel by Com2us is the next on the chopping block, and it seemingly fails to learn from the past, instead seeking to exploit its free-to-play status. You are once again in the control of a teenager keen to prove himself (in this case as the 'virtuoso' of the Shadow Tribe) and you're thrown in to a 'whirlwind' st…

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Saving Private Sheep 2 Review

Wolves eat sheep. Everybody knows this, but did you know that a well placed porcupine will cause a wolf to cough that sheep right back up no worse for wear? A sheepish general observed by luck this phenomenon and now armed with this knowledge, a platoon of sheep soldiers, slingshots, and a load of porcupines dedicated to the cause, it's time to wage war on the wolves and rescue as many wooly brethren as possible. In the vein of Angry Birds and the countless other games in the physics…

Escape from Age of Monsters Review

Review Ayopa Games LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Escape from Age of Monsters Review

'Escape from' is Ayopa Games and Massive Joe Studios latest addition to the 'Age of Monsters' franchise - a series that started off with a free Rock, Paper, Scissors game that introduced us to the world. Gizzard has been chosen by gauntlets infused with power enough to destroy the monsters rampaging around the city, but first he'll need to escape with children in-tow. The first thing that stands out about Escape is its presentation - on the latest iOS devices the game looks absolutely…
