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, 4 years, 3 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, 4 years, 3 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, 4 years, 4 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

Review Zynga Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
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, 4 years, 4 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…


Banzai Rabbit Review

Review Revolutionary Concepts By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 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, 4 years, 4 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…

Doodle Find™ Review

Review KLICKTOCK By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Doodle Find™ Review

If you hadn't already noticed, 'Doodle' has been a category located at the top of the App Store game page for a while now and it's simply incredible to think about just how popular a graphical style can get to warrant such a prime location. Doodle Find by KLICKTOCK seems at first like a minor graphical change from their previous title Super Search 60, but a host of fixes and gameplay updates have accompanied their new game, making this an incredible addictive item-search title. Once y…

Truckers Delight: Episode 1 Review

Review Mobigame By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Truckers Delight: Episode 1 Review

If you haven't run in to the viral sensation of 'Truckers Delight' then it might help to quickly go watch this hilarious animation first (warning very NSFW). Now that you're back or already know about the amusing tale of Jack and his attempts to pursue the Alpha Chick you'll be prepared for the madness of Mobigame's 'Truckers Delight: Episode 1'. Much like the start of the animation, Episode 1 takes place on an American desert highway as Jack chases down the Alpha Chick in an endless…

Zombie Farm Review

Review Playforge Games LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Zombie Farm Review

While it may be a little late to the party, Zombie Farm by Playforge combines two hugely popular concepts in gaming in to one package that's amusing, addictive and surprisingly cute in its execution. Most of your farming duties can be performed through a menu driven system, however a handy "smart" pointer takes most of the need to directly navigate them. Tapping on fresh turf or recently harvested soil will automatically plow the land, while tapping on plowed land brings up the market…

Sorter Review

Review Albert Omoss By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Sorter Review

A game's addictiveness is often hard to truly quantify as what might be addictive at one moment can quickly become boring in the next moment. Sorter by Albert Omoss almost skips this conundrum by making a game based around sorting colored bombs that can put players in to an almost zen-like state as they furiously swipe the screen to the thumping soundtrack. Gameplay is extremely simple: Drag and drop colored bombs to the correct bay before they explode. The iPhone's incredible selecti…

Ninjatown: Trees Of Doom! Review

Ninjatown: Trees Of Doom! Review

It all started with 'Wee Ninja', a tiny character designed by former EGM editor Shawn Smith. Thanks to developer Venan Entertainment the concept quickly blossomed in to 'Ninjatown', a tower-defense game for the Nintendo DS. Venan are no strangers to the iPhone and instead of another tower-defense game, their latest game 'Ninjatown: Trees Of Doom!' switches things up as an endless vertical jumper. Trees Of Doom takes a minimalistic approach to the controls, using a single-finger contro…

Dogs Playing Poker Review

Review Candywriter, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Dogs Playing Poker Review

It's such a simple idea, but Dogs Playing Poker could easily have been a hard one to stomach thanks to C. M. Coolidge's paintings holding a dubious position in pop culture and its assorted ephemera. Thankfully instead of some tacky attempt at cashing in on a pop reference Dogs Playing Poker by Candywriter is probably one of the friendliest and certainly furriest Texas Hold'em games for the iPhone. The tutorial is simply brilliant and gives players a chance to not only learn the game's…
