Pocket League Story Review

Review Kairosoft Co.,Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Pocket League Story Review

Here we are again - a new month rolls by and iOS gamers have themselves a new Kairosoft game to obssess over. This time around the management game specialist has taken aim at the world of sports, following up on their excellent racer Grand Prix Story with a football based title, Pocket League Story. Those interested in the world of football will immediately point out that such a title is neither new, nor exactly lacking in variety, with fans being able to play games that either focus…

Ice Rage Review

Review Mountain Sheep By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Ice Rage Review

An often ignored aspect of portable gaming is the opportunity to involve other people directly in the game you're playing. This doesn't always go smoothly and 'multiplayer' modes involving 'passing' the device can feel incredibly clunky. As such, the iOS multi-touch feature created an opportunity for more than one person to play a game at the same time and Mountain Sheep's (Bike Baron, Death Rally, Minigore) latest release Ice Rage tries to cash in on this style of play. At its core I…

NFL Flick Quarterback Review

Review Full Fat By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
NFL Flick Quarterback Review

It has only been three months or so since Full Fat made their last appearance on the App Store and once again the developer has expanded the 'Flick' series to include all 32 official teams in their new title, NFL Flick Quarterback. While the idea was first introduced in Flick Golf Extreme!, Flick QB requires players to judge their flicks to not only accurately reach their goal, but also to predict where the receiver is running to in order to score bonuses. To make things even harder t…

RPM: Gymkhana Racing Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 8 months ago
RPM: Gymkhana Racing Review

When it comes to sports and racing games, players usually fall into two camps. Do you prefer a simulation game style, or an arcade one? RPM falls in the latter category as it is focused primarily on drifting, and accomplishing many varied and strange tasks while drifting. The game is controlled from an overhead 3rd person view. Hitting the accelerator will propel your car forward but since the slightest shift in turn will begin the drifting that is at the center of the game, you need…

Flick Home Run ! Review

Review infinity pocket By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Flick Home Run ! Review

Sometimes you want nothing more than an excuse to waste time and fill the dull moments in the day with something more interesting than what's happening around you. This could be called antisocial behavior, but sometimes you don't want to try to make friends with the smelly shirtless guy riding the bus with you. Insert Flick Home Run! by infinity pocket; an arcade-style home run title that proves to be addictive mostly thanks to its satisfyingly simple, but visceral controls. All you n…

Zen Warrior Review

Review Ignacio Bononi By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 8 months ago
Zen Warrior Review

Players tend to expect a lot from fighting games. An eclectic cast of characters with interesting move-sets, good balance in pairings, and a variety of interesting locations to spar in. Zen Warrior gets the last one right but falls a little short in other respects. You play as Kuma, a karate fighter looking to discover himself and further the study of his art. In stage after stage you take on different fighters in a 'best out of three matches' scenario before moving onto the next. The…

Worms Crazy Golf Review

Review Team17 Software Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Worms Crazy Golf Review

Worms has made an appearance on the iPhone a couple times now with varying success, but we here at AppSpy have to admit this title caught us off guard. Worms...golf? Who thought of this and now that the idea has flourished into a full blown release, can such an odd concept even work? Let's find out. Funnily enough the game plays very similarly to a classic round of Worms. You can select a pre-built worm or make one from the ground up, choosing clubs, voices and even hats (which is fas…

Slam Dunk King Review

Review PikPok By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Slam Dunk King Review

As freemium games become more and more popular as a monetary system for apps, the focus of a review no longer rests on whether or not a game is worth a player's money, but more along the lines of is it fun enough to pay to unlock additional content, and are there others ways to progress in game. Slam Dunk King is a high score arcade game based on swiping controls. It's more than a little reminiscent of Fruit Ninja in how a simple idea can be both a joy to play and addictive. The game…

NBA 2K12 for iPhone Review

Review 2K Sports By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
NBA 2K12 for iPhone Review

Barring the relatively recent addition of NBA JAM to iOS' roster of games, Basketball has been somewhat poorly represented on the App Store. Given that its only real competition is purely arcade-fodder, NBA 2K12 for iPhone by Take-Two and 2K Games doesn't need to do much to stand out and impress, but it has none-the-less managed to be more than a cash-in on this void. As to be expected players can jump in and control any one of the 30 NBA teams on offer with their current roster and s…

NFL Rivals Review

Review NaturalMotion By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
NFL Rivals Review

Are you ready for some football? At least the most exciting part? That would be the tackles and touchdowns by the way. Yes it seems that Natural Motion has acquired the rights to the NFL license and have re-skinned their Backbreaker franchise to take advantage of not only the real teams, but the rivalries and match-ups of the upcoming season. If you're played any of the Backbreaker games, you should be familiar with the controls. Tilting the iPhone moves your player either left, right…

Grand Prix Story Review

Review Kairosoft Co.,Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Grand Prix Story Review

It seems we can barely finish a Kairosoft game these days before another hits the shelves in order to suck up the loose change from our collective wallets. To be fair to the developer, Grand Prix Story did see its way on to the Android platform as an exclusive earlier in the year. It's hard to feel cynical and claim the game as a simple cash grab, because when it comes down to it the game is just as great as you'd expect it to be. It's no surprise to find out that Grand Prix Story is…

MADDEN NFL 12 by EA SPORTS™ Review

Review Electronic Arts By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
MADDEN NFL 12 by EA SPORTS™ Review

Let's get this out of the way first. If you're a NFL fan and are looking to play some Gridiron on your iPhone, Madden 12 has enough content and solid gameplay to make it a worthwhile purchase. For everyone else, let's delve a little deeper. The game is played with a combination of touch mechanics and an on screen joystick and buttons. Whether on offensive or defense, you can select a play from your team's book (with every team having their own unique plays), or you can use the touch s…

Let's Golf! 3 Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Let's Golf! 3 Review

The Let's Golf series from Gameloft has come to represent the casual, fun side of golfing - giving players some sense of realism paired with cute avatars, fantastic and unreal locations, and plenty of unlockables to make competitive play against friends all the more exciting. The third and latest iteration of the title doesn't change its basic tune all that much, pairing all the same elements together, but with one major twist - it's now a Freemium title. This seriously changes the fu…
