Update To Physics-Based Puzzler daWindci Floats Onto App Store

For the second time in three months, one of the great masters of the High Renaissance Leonardo da Vinci is about to receive a mention on these pages. They - whoever they may be - don't call AppSpy the 'most culturally enlightened iPhone site on the planet' for nothing, you know. With a clear nod to the esteemed Italian polymath, developers Reality Twist have designed a masterfully meditative physics-based puzzler for Apple's mobile by the name of daWindci. In essence, you must pilot a hot air balloon via the iPhone's multi-touch display through 45 separate levels, searching for valuable items and circumventing electric fields along your expeditions. Those already seduced by the combinati…

Review Updates: Kard Combat, Flip Riders, Muffin Knight and Dungeon Defenders

One of the wonderful things about the App Store is that it provides an opportunity for developers to refine their games as time goes on, often to the point of a game hardly resembling what was released in the first place. As such we've had a look at the following titles and we've given them the nudge they deserve as they remain relevant thanks to listening to their respective communities. (Some of the reviews are taking their sweet time to update correctly - they have been edited, please be patient!) Kard Combat (Hothead Games) One of the major weaknesses of Kard Combat when it was released was its lack of customization - something further exascerbated by only having a handful of mages to…

Super Stickman Golf may have been put off its game slightly by a trademark troll earlier in the year, yet it remains a phenomenally enjoyable iPhone experience. This inventive trajectory-based puzzler from Noodlecake pitched up on AppSpy's green a little under a year ago and received full marks from Andrew on review. The effortlessly simple control method complements the cleverly designed levels rather nicely, while the online multiplayer mode is a genuine treat.
