Zombie Quest - Mastermind the hexes! Review

Review Pavel Tarabrin By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Zombie Quest - Mastermind the hexes! Review

We've seen a lot of games involving zombies in our tenure as reviewers, and most of them are pretty much the same. After all, the zombie is a great opponent in an action game. They're slow, there's a lot of them, and most importantly, they're not human. It's been a while since there's been a unique take on zombies in the app store, but Zombie Quest – Mastermind the Hexes most definitely fits that description. More a monster game than a zombie game, but what we have here is a stra…

Pocket Planes Review

Review NimbleBit LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Pocket Planes Review

There's something already naturally addictive about simulation titles no matter the level of complexity involved in them. From the largest cities to the lowliest of farms - if it requires efficient development, people will find themselves coming back for more. The freemium model has exploited this human weakness, but not all games are created equal and NimbleBit are back on the scene with their latest title, Pocket Planes. Initially, players are handed the reins of a small, but well e…

Zombie Ace Review

Review Hothead Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Zombie Ace Review

Zombie Ace ticks almost all the right boxes for releasing an instant hit: It's free, it has zombies, and it's packs single-touch controls for the ultimate in accessibility. Hothead Games have crafted their latest release to a fine point for piercing the market, but all of these buzzwords will fall apart if the gameplay doesn't hold up to scratch. As with so many other zombie-related games, the undead, brain-chomping misanthropes are out to infect the populous, but instead of slowly sh…

Zombie Tsunami Review

Review Mobigame By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Zombie Tsunami Review

We've talked a lot before about that if you're going to copy the formula of a successful game, you'd best have a firm grasp on what actually makes that game work. That way you have a solid foundation to build on, and hopefully you change enough to make the game your own. Zombie Carnival has high aspirations, trying to replicate the endless runner fun of Jetpack Joyride, and you might be happy to find out that they succeed, wringing some enjoyment out of the market over-saturation of zo…

Project 83113 Review

Review NCSOFT By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Project 83113 Review

While we most often associate the 'bullet-hell' moniker with shoot'em-ups, platformers have had more than their share of crazy screen-exploding weapons being discharged at the player. When a main character has four arms and nearly infinite ammunition, you can bet things are about to get crazy and Project 83113 by Fabrication Games and NCsoft manages to deliver. You play as 'Belle', the great hope of the 'organics' in their fight against the 'machines'. Simply put, your job is to blow…

Score! Classic Goals Review

Review First Touch By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Score! Classic Goals Review

Even those of you who aren't fans of the closest thing to a world sport we have in football (or soccer as it is also known), should be able to admit the most exciting part of the game is the goals. Now of course this is partly due to them being such a rarity, but it's also due to the combination of skill, strategy, and just the right dash of luck for everything to come together and wow the crowds. Score! Classic Goals is a football game that focuses on recreating the most famous goals…

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, 6 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, 6 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, 6 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, 6 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…

Wingsuit Stickman Review

Review Djinnworks GmbH By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Wingsuit Stickman Review

What is so inherently entertaining about ragdoll stickmen? Whether it be in choreographed martial arts animations or the plethora of iPhone games involving them, watching these abstract representations of ourselves flail around unceremoniously is always worth a chuckle. In Wingsuit Stickman, our lined protagonist takes flight, and it's up to the player to guide them around oh so many dangerous obstacles, to plummet right into the finish bag. Control of the stickman is handled via tilt…

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, 7 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, 7 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…
