Ninja Ponk Review

Ninja Ponk Review

Ever wonder how ninjas train? Apparently it all has to do with jumping between platforms. What the documentaries fail to mention is the all too important job of the paddler. You see, the crevice is too large for even the most athletic of ninjas to overcome, therefore they need a paddle of varying lengths. This is where you as the player come in. Help train as many ninjas as possible in the time limit by ferrying them to the other side, all the while avoiding the bombs and arrows dedica…

SpinTrip Review

Review ablemagic By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
SpinTrip Review

Most platformers are content with assigning players a handful of 'powers', be it through tokens they earn that give them temporary special abilities or by using button combinations to add a level of skill to the gameplay. SpinTrip takes a slightly different approach, breaking down the gameplay in to moving left/right and jumping while only being able to activate one power at a time; the catch is, you need to 'find' the power in question first. It's an intriguing idea and where most ga…

Bring Me Down Review

Review Hany Malek By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 9 months ago
Bring Me Down Review

You know those physics puzzle games where you have to remove blocks to safely drop a character on the ground below without having him roll off the edge? Bring me Down is one of those games... in 3d! Does the extra dimension help or hinder? Let us find out. Each level starts with this monster trapped in a spherical cage. By tapping on the blocks he's resting on, they disappear, and then physics happens. The goal is to get the monster to the ground below (along with the two bananas as w…

Wonton 51 Review

Review Quarter Circle Punch By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Wonton 51 Review

The popularity of abstract shooters and endless titles was eventually bound to result in a developer marrying the two, with games like Phoenix by Firi Games capturing the spirit of a bullet hell shoot'em-up while still having the hook of hitting 'replay' over and over. Wonton 51 by Quarter Circle Punch takes another stab at the formula, opting for a self-aware style that adds some humor in to the mix. As with any self-respecting game invoking the early days of the arcade (as this retr…

Bring Me Sandwiches!! Review

It seems Adult Swim are on a rampage at the moment and their collection of high-quality games for the iOS platform has once again expanded with the release of Grumpyface Studio's title Bring Me Sandwiches!!.

So now, with the help of the Secret Service, you'll collect everything you can possibly fit on to a slice of bread to satiate the alien's hunger.…

Ghost Chicken Review

Review Blue Frog Gaming By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 9 months ago
Ghost Chicken Review

You know, it's a good thing that the rooster you control in Ghost Chicken is deceased, otherwise the sound effects associated with the neck stretching might be a little more grotesque. This is a game made to cash in on Halloween around the corner however, so it might not have been too out of place. Regardless, even though you're a ghost chicken, you still have hunger, so it's time to stretch out underground, feasting on all the corn and bugs you can find. The goal of each level is to…

Turtle Slide™ Review

Review Voony Games GmbH By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 9 months ago
Turtle Slide™ Review

Style versus substance. As reviewers and gamers, substance usually wins the battle. No matter how beautiful the graphics or amazing the sound, a shallow gameplay experience will wear out its welcome quickly. That's not to say these experiences are altogether bad, it's just you need to know what you're getting yourself into. Turtle Slide is an endless runner, or an endless slider as would be the case in this instance. As a turtle on an ice world, you need to jump, collect coins, and do…

Whale Trail Review

Review ustwo™ By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 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, 3 years, 9 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 (…

Super Cyclone Review

Review Miniclip.com By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 9 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, 3 years, 9 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, 3 years, 9 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

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

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, 10 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…
