Incredipede Review

Review Sarah Northway By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Incredipede Review

When attempting to up the ante over the course of their games, most developers create more complex and testing enviroments for their characters to overcome. The devs behind Incredipede have gone the other way, choosing to adjust the shape and abilities of its lead character to provide new challenges. Quozzle is an incredipede, a creature that has the ability to grow and change its limbs. She starts each level with a different arrangement of appendages. You'll usually find yourself sta…

Gentlemen...Ricochet! Review

Review Bïtse Games By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Gentlemen...Ricochet! Review

Air hockey, mini-golf, snooker: These are games for the common man. A true gentleman requires something more discerning for his sophisticated palette. That is where Gentlemen...Ricochet! comes in. Not only does it allow you to mingle with the upper crust in the town of Smallbridge, but also acquire a handsome sum of tokens, and even a monocle if you're lucky. The gameplay of Gentlemen... Ricochet! is simple. You must flick your token to the end zone, using objects in the environm…

Help Me Fly Review

Review Funtomic (2008) LTD By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Help Me Fly Review

Every now and then you play one of these iOS puzzle games where everything just fits into place. Funnily enough, Help Me Fly is a game about connecting puzzle pieces so that everything fits into place. The aim to use building blocks to help the grounded pilot of a toy plane to connect his aircraft to a battery so he can jump start his plane. Each level features a different selection of blocks arranged upon a grid. Using these pieces, you create a power link between pilot and battery,…

Shadow Vamp Review

Review Gamesmold By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Shadow Vamp Review

When the trailer was released for Shadow Vamp, we at AppSpy were quite excited. The concept of rotating an island to cast shadows from buildings in order to help a vampire get back to his crypt was not only new and novel, but also looked like a lot of fun. Well now that we've gotten our hands on the game, we can tell you that while the core concept is still delightful, sadly its execution leaves something to be desired. To move your sun-shy vampire around you use the analogue stick o…

Strata Review

Review Graveck By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Strata Review

Strata is a ribbon-based puzzle game that requires a large amount of forethought. Though we often rally behind puzzle games which give our fingers something to do while our brains dissect the problem, you might be surprised to learn that we took to Strata in a big way. It's a game about laying coloured ribbons on grid filled with coloured tiles. Criss-crossing two ribbons over a tile activates the colour beneath. The catch is that the tile will only light up if the ribbon layed on top…

Where's My Water? 2 Review

Review Disney By James Gilmour, 1 year, 10 months ago
Where's My Water? 2 Review

Where's My Water? 2 is a difficult game to play. Not because the earth-filled maps are especially tough to negotiate. Or because the physics are broken or unpredictable. No, Where's My Water? 2 is a difficult game to play because it doesn't want to be played. At least, not in the manner you or I might be accustomed to. Things start off promisingly. The water-funnelling gameplay of the original title makes a strong return, along with the revival of shower-loving protagonist Swamp…

Gleamer Review

Review Emmet Morris By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Gleamer Review

Gleamer is a platformer which combines simple shapes, basic controls, and a pulsing electronica soundtrack. The goal is to collect all five stars as quickly as possible, allowing you to move on another of the game's 50 stages. It all sounds rather standard doesn't it? However, it's amazing how one little mechanic can make all the difference. Your cube moves automatically, and reverses direction when it hits the outer edge of the level. Every time it does this you gain speed. The stag…

Bombcats Special Edition Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Bombcats Special Edition Review

Chillingo has been experimenting with freemium games in recent months. One of these experiments was Bombcats, a game which combined the physics flinging fun of exploding kitties with a freemium gem system. We didn't get around to reviewing the original release, but with Bombcats Special Edition sidelining the gem currency and adding more content, we thought we'd take second look. So there are these trapped kittens. To free them, you chuck an exploding cat (because cats explode now) in…

Fling Theory Review

Review Coding Jar Studios By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Fling Theory Review

In Fling Theory, you follow a particle through a journey of attraction, repulsion, destruction, and everything in-between. It's a physics flinger in the truest sense of the word. Each stage involves guiding your partcle through series of mazes and pipes, collecting the three stars and plenty of coins along the way. By changing the charge of your particle (yellow for positive, red for negative) you alter the way charged particles in the environment affect your path through the maze. By…

Joining Hands 2 Review

Review 10tons Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Joining Hands 2 Review

A meteor has crashed in the whispering woods. The denizens of the forest, the Peablins, go to investigate. The investigation might take a while though. It seems the only way these cute little creatures can advance is to hold hands until everyone is happy. It might seem a bit of a weird strategy, but this is for Joining Hands 2, it's just another day in the office. Each Peablin has a different number of hands. The grabby blobs must be arranged on the game board so that no hand is left…

Link The Slug Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Link The Slug Review

The slugs in Link the Slug are the result of an experiment gone horribly wrong. And, as science is blame for these colourful abominations, it's science's job to clean up the mess. To do this, you need to use the power of electricity. Tap two slugs of the same colour and a bolt of electricity will zap between them, eradicating the slugs from existence. Each stage is complete when all slugs have been zapped from the screen. The trick is to clear the screen in such a way that your electr…

The Impossible Line Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
The Impossible Line Review

The Impossible Line features a concept that we've seen before on iOS. The aim of the game is to draw a line from point to point, avoiding all the hazards in-between. The catch is that once you start drawing said line, the obstacles disappear, leaving you to rely on your memory. For this incarnation of the concept, a radar has been added, as well as a few power-ups. But as is the case with many free to play games these days, The Impossible Line is rendered almost impossible to enj…

Miseria Review

Review RatJar Games By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Miseria Review

Would you believe us if we told you that Miseria, a creepy, black and white anrachnid-infested puzzler, is a love story? You see, not only is the hideous spider beast that inhabits the lower screen threatening your small furry life, but it's also made off with your missus. To get her back, you must tap the sides of the screen to rotate the world, and use gravity to reach the swirling spiral of freedom. Along the way you must avoid toppling out of the maze and into the maw of the scree…

rymdkapsel Review

Review webbfarbror AB By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
rymdkapsel Review

Part real time strategy, part tower defence, part exploration - rymdkapsel is certainly a unique proposition. It's one of those games where your initial playthrough is all about familiarising yourself with the mechanics so that you can start again and tackle the game proper. In fact, you'll have to take numerous runs at rymdkapsel's tough cycle until you manage to discover the secrets of the monoliths, and survive all the attack waves. Like any real time strategy title, rymdkapsel's c…

Tiny Thief Review

Review Rovio Stars Ltd. By James Gilmour, 1 year, 12 months ago
Tiny Thief Review

In the often humourless, frequently bullet-riddled world of gaming, a little charm goes a long way. Tiny Thief, the genre-straddling adventure puzzle mash-up from 5 Ants Games has enough charm to rescue an entire battalion of macho, grey cover shooters from their gravel-voiced funk, and still have a bit left over to make a funnel web spider look cute. As the title suggests, you take control of a pint-sized pickpocket whom you must guide to an exit without being spotted. To do this, yo…
