Slam Dunk King Review

Review PikPok By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 1 month 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 BANDAI NAMCO Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 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, 3 years, 2 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, 3 years, 2 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, 3 years, 2 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, 3 years, 2 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, 3 years, 2 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, 3 years, 2 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, 3 years, 2 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…

NOM 5 Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 2 months ago
NOM 5 Review

Nom wants to find himself a girlfriend. To do so, he's on a quest to meet the Spaceking and acquire the truth of life along the way. At least that's what we think is going on. The story itself reads like it was written through an online translator and doesn't have much to do with the gameplay. Funnily enough this could a point in the favor of Nom's odd charm. When the first level loads up, you get the feeling this is going to be another endless runner with a multi-purpose tap control…

Jetpack Joyride Review

Review Halfbrick Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Jetpack Joyride Review

There were two particularly interesting results that came of Brisbane-based developer Halfbrick studios release of Monster Dash (a fun, but basic endless runner) last year. Firstly it was the introduction of Barry Steakfries - a rebel without a cause and all-around monster slaying badass. Secondly, a temporary power-up allowed you to soar through the sky on the wings of a gatling-gun jetpack - if that doesn't evoke a Tim the "Toolman" Taylor style series of grunts, I don't know what wi…

SPY mouse Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
SPY mouse Review

Sometimes it's easy to forget that Firemint, the developers of the Real Racing series for iOS have another game they're rather famous for - a little line-drawing App called Flight Control. While racing has its fans, Flight Control made perfect use of the touch-screen interface to create a fun game based around the pressures of multitasking. So what if Firemint decided to boil the concept down in to something a bit more bite-sized? What if you were rewarded for your puzzle solving skil…

Review Colorbox By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 3 months ago
Candy Boy Review

Candy Boy is what would happen if Dr. Mario had been a platformer instead of a puzzle game. Casper finds that his beloved Candy Land has been infested by horrific candy hungry worms. It's now up to him to use the power of sugary treats to send these parasites to oblivion. Each level consists of worms of different colors nestled amongst candy of different colors. Armed with a small supply of candy himself, Casper needs to place the blocks so that three or more of the same color matches…

Let's Golf! 3 Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
Let's Golf! 3 Review

The Let's Golf series from Gameloft has come to represent the casual, fun side of golfing - giving players some sense of realism paired with cute avatars, fantastic and unreal locations, and plenty of unlockables to make competitive play against friends all the more exciting. The third and latest iteration of the title doesn't change its basic tune all that much, pairing all the same elements together, but with one major twist - it's now a Freemium title. This seriously changes the fu…

Squirmee REDUX Review

Review Coding Design, LLC By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 3 months ago
Squirmee REDUX Review

Squirmee is enjoying time with his sister, when out of nowhere, a gigantic tree shoots out of the ground and traps her on its highest branch. This is the story of Squirmee and the Puzzling Tree, and sets the stage for a fast paced, original puzzle game, with plenty of frustration to spare. Each level has Squirmee traveling along a predetermined path on a platform. The goal is to reach the end as quickly as possible, with the three stars available each level tied to the time of complet…
