Aerox Review

Review Synoptical Studios Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Aerox Review

If you've got a steady hand, a bucket-load of patience and a penchant for impossible physics based platforming, then Aerox by Synoptical Studios is the game for you. For everyone else, it's an interesting tilt-controlled platformer that boasts intuitive controls and clever physics that challenge your skills while providing a feast for the eyes. The tilt controls automatically zero based on how you're holding your device at the time the level starts, which is perfect when you're prepar…

TRON Review

Review Disney By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
TRON Review

TRON Legacy is still half a year away, so it's somewhat odd to get our hands on the movie tie-in game App this early. Sure, there's a marketing angle to be worked here, but I'm not about to look a gift horse in the mouth. TRON for the App Store is an action title where you control a tank from one of three different factions and compete for dominance over the internet. The tank is controlled much like a twin-stick shooter, with two analogue sticks representing the move and shoot functi…

Castaway Jelly Review

Review Colorplay Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Castaway Jelly Review

It's not often you get a chance to navigate coral mazes as a jellyfish and Colorplay Games have decided to fill this niche hole with 'Castaway Jelly'. In this simple game you must navigate various ocean hazards in order to rescue your friends and ultimately make your way home. Over the course of 30 levels you'll need to avoid natural hazards including sharp coral, balloon fish and on several occasions even apparently harmless bubbles. The game boasts the use of intuitive controls, but…

Magnetic Shaving Derby Review

Review Nyarlu Labs By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Magnetic Shaving Derby Review

After checking out the screenshots for Magnetic Shaving Derby (MSD) you'd be forgiven for steering clear, opting not to jump in to what clearly looks like a crazy title. Nyarlu Labs have succeeded in distilling iconic and random concepts in to a title that's easy to play and fun to experience. Players can choose between touch or tilt controls for their magnet, however thanks to the way the physics simulation works neither one is truly superior to the other. Dragging your magnet around…

Death Knight Review

Death Knight Review

Triniti Interactive's latest release, Death Knight jumps on the beat'em up bandwagon with its own spin on the genre. Bad guys invade, your character takes up the call, bad guys get their heads smashed in - it's nothing unique, but at least there's no kidnapped princess/mayor/girlfriend to bother rescuing. On your epic 77 level journey you'll take the reigns of a nameless knight as he wields an assortment of weaponry to dispatch the 'forces of EVIL'. There's only one control scheme to…

StarDunk - Online Basketball in Space Review

Review Godzilab By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
StarDunk - Online Basketball in Space Review

If basketball, online gaming and the 'flick' genre of minigames were put in a blender, you'd still only just start to approach the kind of game StarDunk by Godzilab is like. Players can choose between left or right handed orientation, placing the ball and hoop at opposite sides of the screen depending on your choice. To aim, all you have to do is place your finger down and drag around the screen to set your throw strength and angle. An indicator helps to align your shot and while this…

The Gravedigger Review

The Gravedigger Review

Its been said before on AppSpy, but nailing that true real-time strategy (RTS) feel doesn't seem to be easy for portable devices. The Gravedigger by Behold Studios takes yet another approach to the genre pitting Humans and Zombies against each other in a charmingly simplistic new game. After selecting your allegiance with either the 'Gravedigger' or the 'Priest' you're launched in to a short 8 mission set of tutorial missions that slowly teach you how to control and maintain your armi…

Whacksy Taxi Review

Review Mindstorm Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Whacksy Taxi Review

Whacksy Taxi by Mindstorm Studios is a bogglingly fun title for one simple reason: Who'd have thought that Outrun could become MORE of an Arcade game? In this endless-style racer you'll dodge, jump and fly over traffic on your whirlwind tour of the US, just try not to blow up while nudging cars from the rear. Your Taxi has free reign of three lanes on its high-speed rampage, with various cars, SUVs and trucks blocking your way. Tapping the controls on either side of the screen will ju…

LandFormer Review

Review Streaming Colour Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
LandFormer Review

Elegant, thought provoking playground-style puzzle games really get my brain to light up like a Christmas Tree and not since Path Pix have I felt so excited about a game like LandFormer by Streaming Colour Studios. In this puzzler, players will need to use a limited set of tools to raise and lower the landscape in a 5x5 grid to return the world back to a pristine flat plain. There are several restrictions that help to limit the complexity with only six tools in total, each with their…

Juggle! Review

Review Denki By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Juggle! Review

It's been shown time and again, but sometimes the simplest of ideas can be the most powerful. Juggle! by Denki has stripped back the old brick-and-paddle gameplay (think Arcanoid) to it's basic level, bouncing objects - often many at a time - off a tiny moveable paddle. Juggle! is played in a vertical orientation, with a relatively small paddle that quickly moves across the bottom of the screen at the lightest touch. At first this feels excessive and awkward, but additional balls cont…

FarmVille by Zynga Review

No matter how you feel about Farmville, whether you're sick of it clogging up your Facebook account or if you're a helpless thrall to its addictive gameplay, you have to admire just how much Zynga understands social gaming. Now that Farmville is available for iDevices, you can stay connected almost wherever you are and strangely enough it may even help to ease the stress of staying updated. A smart-touch system is used to help perform most basic actions like harvesting, planting and p…

Jumbo Snake™ Review

Review Nano Digital Helsinki Oy By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Jumbo Snake™ Review

Snake. If you own a mobile phone it's a fair bet you've played Snake. It's almost synonymous with the devices after being packed with Nokia phones and most other devices in various iterations. Jumbo Snake by Boost Mobile offers gamers their take on the simple object-eating-and-growing reptile gameplay by elegantly presenting a very vanilla version. There are no d-pads, virtual sticks or buttons to worry about, just simple swipes. Flicking your finger will determine the direction you h…

Review Revolutionary Concepts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Banzai Rabbit Review

Revolutionary Concepts are on a roll and after their release of Karate Champ for the App Store they've struck while the iron is hot and have dropped their latest original title 'Banzai Rabbit'. Those following the development of this game may remember it as Frogman, but either way we've got a hopping super-hero helping citizens from being mutated by your nemesis. When it comes right down to it, Banzai Rabbit is a modern adaption of Frogger, with several control schemes and variations…

Superblox : Power Unleashed! Review

Review Casual Friday Games LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Superblox : Power Unleashed! Review

A lot of games that use the iPhone's accelerometer almost sell it short, providing rudimentary controls that feel clunky. Games like Tilt To Live have proven that tilting can in fact be incredibly precise and Superblox by Casual Friday Games has combined speedy, accurate movement controls with a three-match style scoring system to create a game that's frantic and addictive. The controls are calibrated at the beginning of each game and the sensitivity can be controlled from the options…
