Ambi-On Planning for a late September Release

News By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago

Studio 'Winning Blimp' have released a trailer for their upcoming game Ambi-On. You should take a look! A continuous scrolling Breakout with rock music and paddles on both sides? Looks like it could be a blast. We'll know more as the game comes closer to its eventual release date.…


Fly by Night this Thursday

Fly by Night this Thursday

No, this isn't a re-release of a 1970s rock album (joke!), but rather a fun looking little flyer called Night Flight debuting in the App Store this week. Here's the trailer. The regular version of the game will be $0.99 and the HD version will be $1.99. The lighting is impressive and the flying looks like it may be quite loose, which can be fun and challenging with the right design. I'll guess we'll know upon release won't we.…


Frutorious' Felt Fun Hitting the App Store Late Next Month

Frutorious' Felt Fun Hitting the App Store Late Next Month

Finding a unique and catching art style when designing your game is certainly a challenge. When Kirby's Epic Yarn came out a couple years ago, its use of felt and yarn was refreshing and whimsical and reminded some of us of the claymation games of the 16-bit era. Frutorious combines felt and clay in what looks to be a high score jumping game with plenty of charisma. Have a look at the trailer... No definitive release date has been set, but the developers are anticipating late September. We'll let you know when it happens.…


Heroes' Call Undergoes an Update

Heroes' Call Undergoes an Update

Some of you may remember our review of Heroes' Call. In summary it's a decent enough hack and slash RPG that was dragged down by designing its systems around the worst aspects of the freemium model. Since then based on reviews and user feedback, the dev team has been working to fix some of these issues, and we're happy to advertise that their first update has hit the app store. Here are the changes... * The in-app purchase currency of gems has been removed entirely (and any gems held by players have now been turned into gold). * The shadow assassin class has become playable for all. * Hard Mode characters available. * Replaying missions warrants more gold and better gear. * Story miss…

Gallivanting Granny Unveiling this Thursday

You never want to let your Grandmother go unsupervised while wearing roller skates. Who knows what mayhem will result. Just look at this trailer for Granny Smith being released this Thursday for instance! Ah well, as long as she's having a good time? Am i right?…


Surfing Never Looked so Cruisy

Surfing Never Looked so Cruisy

Phantom surfboard aside, in the next couple weeks Infinite Surf will be released for $0.99. The presentation is what is most striking, with the great surf music combined with the picturesque waves (that never move as you travel up and down them). Have a look at the trailer to see what i mean. It certainly looks less complicated and safer than grabbing a board and hitting the waves yourself (though perhaps not as fun or rewarding).…


Big Square Enix Port Released over the Weekend

Big Square Enix Port Released over the Weekend

The rumours of the release were leaked late last week, but we wanted to wait for confimation, and now we have it. Square Enix are porting a version of The World Ends With You to iOS devices. It's titled Solo remix, and is available for iPhone 4 and iPad 2 users. It will set you back about $18 - $20 depending on version and region. The original DS version is one of my favourite RPGs of the last 10 years so it's nice to see a mobile port. I wonder how they designed around the single screen of the iPhone and iPad, as it was the duel screen combat that made the game so unique and memorable. We'll find out when our review of this title goes up sometime this week![The World Ends With Y…


Friday News Wrap-Up 24 August 2012

Friday News Wrap-Up 24 August 2012

I won't jump the gun just yet, but the Pick of the Week is a dead give away this week, so there's no need to skip all the way there straight away. Instead, sit back and relax and listen to the news of the week that was in AppSpy's Friday News-Wrap Up for the 24th of August, 2012. Warhammer Quest - By Rodeo Games, out next SpringI had to have a cold shower after finding out about this ditty. Board games have been doing very well on the App Store, if only because they provide minimal changes from the real thing and are often much cheaper to invest in. Warhammer Quest from Games Workshop is an absolute classic, but it also mimics a gameplay style we all know and may even love - turn-…


Infinite Warrior Out in the App Store September 6th

Infinite Warrior Out in the App Store September 6th

In the film world, one way to pitch an idea is by combining two existing movies and mushing them together. This way of looking at new properties is useful when it comes to games as well, and the best way to describe Infinite Warrior is mixing the endless runner genre with Infinity Blade. Have a look at the trailer. The game is out at the start of next month.[Empty Flask Games]…

Grabbity Hopping out in Early September

September is shaping up to have some interesting releases and heavy hitters. What else do you expect as we're moving into the 4th quarter? Grabbity caught our eye by being a platformer based entirely around tilt. Have a look at the trailer and see what we mean. This looks like it'll be a lot of fun, and it's got great presentation to boot. It will be out September 6th.…

Bag It! Updates With A New Game Mode And 3D!

We at AppSpy are never afraid to wear our love of a game on our sleeves and Hidden Variable's 'Bag It!' is no exception, receiving high praise not only from us, but from most major reviewers . After a recent successful promotion, the developers have updated the game with a brand new mode called 'Seedy's Booty' featuring all new gameplay, power-ups and best of all... 3D! That's right, no longer are the items in the shopping bag confined to the rigours of a 2D plane as they explode out of the screen as you make matches. Check out the gameplay footage here: As part of the update we have three codes to give away - keep an eye on our Twitter feed as we drop the codes one by one ov…

Friday News Wrap-Up 17 August 2012

Man... where has the year gone? We're already two thirds of the way through 2012; the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini is on the horizon; and we haven't even seen the biggest releases hit yet. I may just be falling in to the cycle of hype, but I can't wait to see what the rest of the year has in store for us. For now lets cover the news of the last week or so in the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 17th of August, 2012. Real Boxing - Unreal graphicsPolish developer Vivid Games may be better known for titles like Shoot to Kill or (my personal favorite) the re-release of Speedball 2 for the iOS platform. The prolific studio isn't slowing down its pace one iota and is joining the Unreal Engine trai…

Explore the Universe with Solar Walk 2.0

We don't often cover educational apps here at Appspy, and that's a shame because all who work here are believers in the power of teaching through interactivity. It's nice once and a while to find such an app that approaches its subject in an accessible, entertaining and informative way. Solar Walk has just recieved its 2.0 update and looks like a fantastic and affordable app to interest and educate on the subject of astronomy. Take a look at this trailer highlighting some of the features. [iPhone link][iPad link]…

Space Inflaters: Popping into the App Store this Thursday

Wow, it looks like Digdug has launched himself into space and is serving up his horrific sense of inflatable justice on some Space Invaders. Watch the trailer to see what i mean. This is a free app with in-app purchases. It looks like it could be a fun shmup, especially with having to pop enemies after shooting them to gain score. Try it out for yourselves after Thursday and let us know what you think!…
