Whale Trail Review

Review ustwo™ By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Whale Trail Review

While I'd love to think I'm not the bitter old-soul that my friends sometimes consider me to be, I can't help but feel a bit sympathetic as I load up a game like Whale Trail by ustwo and grin like the Cheshire Cat for what seems like hours and think 'Oh... this is what smiling feels like?'. OK, OK, I'm not THAT grumpy, but the point remains that there's something positive to be said for a game that had me babbling like an incoherently excited 3 year old within minutes of having loaded…

Forever Drive Review

Review supermono limited By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Forever Drive Review

Who doesn't love a nice drive? Perhaps driving forever would be a bit much, but with enough skill, that does indeed seem to be a possibility with this community content created racer. You start out in a generic car with a generic paint job and a generic license plate. At generic level one. As you play the game and gain points, you gain experience, and as you level up, new cars, paint modes, license plates, and build features are unlocked. These goodies can also be purchased in store (…

Warm Gun Review

Review Emotional Robots By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Warm Gun Review

I can almost hear my own Mom scalding me in my own memories as I play Warm Gun by Emotional Robots. Though scarily it's not actually her voice, but my own saying 'Just because you can, doesn't mean you should'. It's a worrying moment, but the point still remains - it's true that the iPhone is slowly claiming territory once thought of as exclusive to dedicated handheld or even home consoles, but a bland and featureless FPS deathmatch game does nothing to move iOS forward in this directi…

Super Cyclone Review

Review Miniclip.com By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Super Cyclone Review

Oops, we seem to have stumbled upon another twin stick shooter. Luckily for us, not only is Super Cyclone well made, but as you would hope of every addition to the genre, it adds a couple neat little things to the standard 'fly around and blast stuff' gameplay. First off, the controls are nice and responsive. The ship has a tight turn to it, but this never leaves you without an evasive escape opportunity when the enemy ships come. The goal of each level is to defend the stargate from…

Squishys Revenge Review

Review Toy Studio LLC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Squishys Revenge Review

It seems unfeasible that a sliding tile puzzle game featuring a cute little blob named Squishy has a anti-corporate bent to it, but the evidence seems to be right there on the screen. Oh sure the story tells you that the evil Dr. Spudget has stolen all the Squishberries and it's up to Squishy to take revenge... but you do this by setting skyscrapers aflame, many of which seem to be alive. You monster! Each level gives you so many turns before Squishy moves. You need to flick tiles wit…

Boss Battles Review

Review Backflip Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Boss Battles Review

There was a period where I couldn't go a week without a shooter of some variety to gush about or strip down; while trends like this are to be expected, it sorely tested my interest in the genre. What makes it odd is the distinct void that I hadn't anticipated from having not played a shooter in a long time and the idea of Boss Battle's free abstract boss-fighting gameplay was like an oasis in a vast, dry desert. One should caveat the whole 'free' thing before moving on though; for tho…

Slam Dunk King Review

Review PikPok By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Slam Dunk King Review

As freemium games become more and more popular as a monetary system for apps, the focus of a review no longer rests on whether or not a game is worth a player's money, but more along the lines of is it fun enough to pay to unlock additional content, and are there others ways to progress in game. Slam Dunk King is a high score arcade game based on swiping controls. It's more than a little reminiscent of Fruit Ninja in how a simple idea can be both a joy to play and addictive. The game…

KATAMARI Amore Review

Review NamcoBandai Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
KATAMARI Amore Review

Games within the KATAMARI series by Namco Bandai very rarely need an introduction as the setup is quite usually always the same: The King of All Cosmos has his eyes set upon collecting various interesting and wonderful objects from planet Earth and the poor 5cm tall Prince must roll it up in his 'Katamari' to satisfy the King's desire. What makes Amore so exciting is that it's not the first Katamari game to hit the App Store, so expectations are high when you consider how much more raw…

Idyllic! Review

Review FatCow Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Idyllic! Review

For a while after first playing Idyllic, we here at AppSpy were a little confused. Yes the visuals of this bizarre alien landscape combined with the amazing music indeed painted an idyllic picture, but then there was the gameplay. Every time the character we controlled touched one of the islands, the island itself would burst from gloomy blues into earthy greens and browns, but the trees would be destroyed, leaving only leaf-less husks. Was our character bringing life back to this alie…

Tiny Heroes Review

Review Simutronics Corp By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
Tiny Heroes Review

Tower defense games are a dime a dozen these days. With that being the case it's often hard to be excited about yet another addition to the genre. Tiny Heroes is not the first TD game to switch the dynamic around, putting you in the shoes of the villains and having you defeat incoming heroes, but it presents itself with enough solid gameplay and charm to have a fighting chance. Each level begins with a new dungeon resting between the waves of heroes and your treasure room. Before the…

Globulos Mania Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
Globulos Mania Review

How far can you stretch a premise? Oh wait, we've already used that opening line here at AppSpy and it was for a game reviewed quite recently too. A shame cause Globulos Mania is all about the stretching. If turn based stretching is your thing, you'll find all you want and more right here. Let's explore further. Globulos Mania is a series of mini games, all of which can either be played against the computer or online against other players. The rules of the game are varied, but the mec…

Hero's Way Review

Review Lakoo By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Hero's Way Review

There exists a place at which too much control is removed from the hands of the player and while the specific point may vary for each individual, turning an Action-RPG in to what feels like an automated Sim seems to cross the line. Hero's Way by Lakoo is, at the very least, a novel idea and one that may appeal to those sick of mashing buttons, but having RPG characters that do everything for you feels immensely lazy. Aside from the selection of equipment; the distribution of character…

Tune Rider Review

Review H2indie LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Tune Rider Review

Like many people, music forms a large part of my life; something my eclectic collection of music ranging from 80s New Wave to modern Gangster Rap can attest to. As such I love it when a game lets me turn my music in to something visceral (such as in AudioSurf), which is why I had to give Tune Rider by H2indie a try. There aren't any real grandiose promises made by the developer outside of being able to ride along with your music. This honesty has in retrospect worked in the game's fav…

ArkanoArena for iPhone Review

Review Sketch Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
ArkanoArena for iPhone Review

So somewhere in the pockets of time and space there's a tournament held that is only for the strongest competitors to survive. It is overseen by a mysterious man named Arkano, and the competition itself... is Arkanoid. This is definitely one of the more ludicrous setups for a brick breaker but fans of the genre will see that this is indeed a solid entry. For those who've played any brick breaker on the iPhone, the controls should be familiar. The paddle (called the Stinger in this gam…

To-Fu 2 Review

Review HotGen Ltd. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
To-Fu 2 Review

How far can you stretch a premise? That was a joke. You see in To-fu 2, you play a block of tofu who stretches to ping his way onto walls in search of the ever elusive kitty fortune cookie. For those who played the original game, not too much has changed. You use your finger to stretch the tofu in the direction you want him to fly, and he'll stick to the corresponding piece of wood. Obviously spikes will kill him, but there's metal which he will ricochet off, glass he'll slide down, a…
