AppSpy's video wrap-up - The Walking Dead, Cut the Rope 2, Ridge Racer Slipstream

We know that you're a busy person. You probably shouldn't even be reading this article, what with all the jobs / tasks / children / tax returns / online RPGs competing for your love, time, and attention. We also understand that you may not have the inclination to click through pages and pages of links looking for the AppSpy videos that matter to you. So, to save you the hassle of browser tab management, we've put all the best AppSpy video previews and reviews of the week in a single place. This place, to be precise. Here is this week's AppSpy video wrap-up: Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas review Rating: 4/5 We said: "Though the controls are never going to match those of the console ver…


App Wrap Up (Week Ending 17th May, 2013) - iPad Edition

App Wrap Up (Week Ending 17th May, 2013) - iPad Edition

Hey hey readers! It's Friday, and that means it's time for another App Wrap Up! I don't have too many iPhone selections for you this week, so I thought i'd dip into the well, and once again focus this article on iPad releases. As always, I will show you a bunch of trailers, comment on them, and if you like what you see, you can follow the link and grab the game for yourselves. Let's get started!   Gigabattle (Mego Ltda.) All the cats of Earth have been abducted to create a giant hairball super weapon. Odd to say the least. This looks like sort of a reverse shmup mixed with a bit of real time strategy. Unique and odd enough to warrant a look i'd wager.[App Store Link]   Monst…

App Wrap Up (Week Ending 10th May, 2013)

Hey hey readers, and welcome to your favourite feature on the site, the App Wrap Up! As always we got a selection of games that might have gone under the radar, but look like they might have something interesting to offer based solely on their trailers. Let us take a look, and see if anything takes any of your fancies!   The Seed (Little Bit Games Inc.) While this looks like a low-fi flash game, the gameplay is quite interesting as single screen puzzle games go. Plant seeds to get the plant to sprout, while everything is obeying the laws of gravity. The music is quite serene as well.[App Store Link]   Dragonconquer (ILLUSU INC.) It's Qix with shooting mechanics. And…

App Wrap Up (Week ending 3rd May, 2013)

Hey hey readers, and welcome to the App Wrap Up! You may have noticed that our video content is ramping up again with James lending his formidable skills to the task of our video reviews. If you haven't, stop by our YouTube channel and cheer him on! As always though, we have a collection of iOS games you may have missed or not known about that look like they have something interesting to offer based on their trailers. Let's have a look at what I have for you this week!   Alien Kerfuffle (Kerplect) Now the gameplay doesn't kick in till 1:30 on this trailer, but that first minute and a half had me slightly bemused by these claymation monstrosities (yes it's 3D, but they have that loo…

App Wrap Up (Week Ending 26th April, 2013)

Hey hey readers, and welcome to another installment of your favourite feature on the site, the App Wrap Up! It's been a week of transition as we say goodbye to Andrew and welcome on James to fill his place. The video content has been missed, but you will always have good ol' Dave here with his written content (which for the most part, was the backbone of our video content anyway)! Oh, and it's also my birthday, so yes, I am indeed taking time out of this day of celebration to let you know about some games that may have fallen under the radar based on their trailers. We don't have too many this week, so let's get started!   Fill Spector (WOW Inc.) So aside from the game being enjoye…

App Wrap Up (Week Ending 19th April, 2013)

Hey hey dear readers, and welcome to the App Wrap Up; your one stop shop for unique iOS game trailers. You'll have to excuse me if i'm a little erratic today. I completed Bioshock Infinite this morning, so my mind is still mulling over what transpired there. Still, here I am with a few trailers of games that might have fallen under the radar for your enjoyment. Let us take a look!   Tower Zoo (MiniWorldGames) Obviously for a younger audience, this competitive match-3 game has charming presentation, and looks like a lot of fun to play, especially against another person.[App Store Link]   First Person Tennis (Michele Laurello) I imagine there's likely a reason that we…

App Wrap Up (Week Ending 12th April, 2013)

Hey hey readers, and welcome to another installment of the App Wrap Up! We're back to iPhone-centric trailers this week, although I do have another iPad only update in the works (plus some other specific installments)... but that's for the future. The present is now! Let's look at some trailers for games that may have passed under the radar and comment on them!   Sorted! (Mighty Kingdom Pty Ltd) A game about sorting objects into their own shaped holes. Simplistic? Yes, but with the arcade timer, and presentation, I think this might be more difficult and addictive than some might give it credit for.[App Store Link]   Strip Music Box (Illkill.) Yes it's another rhythm game.…

App Wrap Up (Week Ending 5th April, 2013) - iPad Edition

Heya and hola dear readers. Over my time writing these App Wrap Ups, I have collected trailers for alternate versions of the article. Primarily it's focus is on iPhone games, but there are a host of iPad only games as well that get overlooked, and seeing as I have no iPhone trailers to work with this week, I thought I'd dig out out some of these links. Now especially for this first iPad segment, the trailers I'm about to show you are from last year, and some date back to at least mid 2012. This shouldn't matter because an interesting game is an interesting game, but I just thought I'd let you know. Ok then, let's look at some trailers for iPad only titles!   Octacube (Eyal revivo)…

App Wrap Up (Week ending 29th March, 2013)

Hey Hey Appspy readers, and welcome to another installment of the App Wrap Up, your favourite regular feature on our site! Last week's picking were sparse indeed but don't fret, this week I have a bunch of trailers to more than make up for it! As always, these games are based solely on their trailers, and if you like what you see, well that's why we add the link to the App Store. Let's get started!   AHOGE CHANBARA (MMXIII M2 Co., Ltd.) This is one of the more interesting takes on an Infinity Blade-esque dodge and attack game i've seen. The anime characters attacking with their hair have a certain charm to them that lends some possible enjoyment to this title.[App Store Link]…

App Wrap Up (Week Ending 22nd March, 2013)

Hey hey readers! It's Dave here with another installment of everyone's favourite trailer showcase, the App Wrap Up (just imagine an entire audience yelling those last three words)! I only have literally a couple of games to show off the trailers to today. I guess there wasn't much out there that we haven't already covered. Let that be an invitation to email more submissions to us. You may get your game featured. So let's have a look at these two trailers. Who knows, you may find a new favourite. Let's begin!   Bobbing (LittleBobby) A platformer in a rotating circle with polarity mechanics. Fans of the site should know how much I adore a good platformer, and this looks like it could…

App Wrap Up (Week ending 15th March, 2013)

Hey hey readers, and welcome to your favourite regular feature on Appspy, the App Wrap Up! We got a bunch of new trailers for you of games you might have missed but look like they have something interesting to offer. Without further ado, let us begin!   Sling it! (Greg Lobanov) Not only does this game have a delightful collection of sound effects, but it's a novel use of the flinging mechanic. As long as it's easy to switch between moving around the screen and slingshotting the enemies, this could be a lot of fun.[App Store Link]   oOo (mELTINGsKYsTUDIOS) The trailer really doesn't give you a good idea of what the gameplay entails, but it looks relaxing, and I like how it…

App Wrap Up (Week Ending 8th March, 2013)

Hey hey loyal readers, and welcome to another edition of the App Wrap Up. We got a good selection of interesting game trailers to look at this week that show off games that might have something interesting to offer. Interest! Let's get started!   Tricky Shot (Dream Apps Lab.) A game based around Soccer trick shots... but instead of fancy footwork, you're kicking the ball out to hit objects in the world for points. Could be fun based on the ridiculous the game might ask of you.[App Store Link]   Sky Climb (PICxPIC) A very simplistic high score game that despite its sparse presentation looks quite enjoyable, mainly due to the simple vine switching mechanic, and the responsi…

App Wrap Up (Week Ending 1st March, 2013)

Hey hey gentle readers (I don't know why you're gentle, it just sounded like a nice thing to say)! Welcome once again to the App Wrap Up. It's gonna be a short one this week, but I do have three game trailers to take a look at. They seem to have something interesting to offer so who knows, you might find a new favourite. Let's take a look!   Flutter: Butterfly Sanctuary (Runawayplay - NHNZ) This one almost got put in another pile. I'm saving up interesting looking education games to eventually write an App Wrap Up for parents and their children, but there was something about Flutter that made me think adults might find it interesting as well. It looks to have a 'collect-em-all…

App Wrap Up (Week Ending, 22nd February, 2013)

Hey hey readers! It's the end of the week and we here at Appspy have another App Wrap Up ready to read. Now that the year is starting to kick into gear the releases are speeding up somewhat, but plenty of games fall through the cracks and are over looked for one reason or another. As always we have some trailers of such games, and are showcasing them here based on something interesting that they might have to offer. Without further ado, let's get started!   Super Grid Run (Refresh Creations ltd) A very pure style of endless runner. It kind of throws back to early entries in the 3d genre like Boost 3D. I hope that the control method is responsive as the onslaught of obstac…

App Wrap Up (Week Ending 15th February, 2013)

Hey hey readers and welcome to another installment of the App Wrap Up! Let's end this week in gaming by looking at some games that might have fallen under the radar. Based on their trailers, I think they may have something interesting to offer, so I present them to you along with links to the App Store in case anyone wants to make a purchase. Without futher ado, let us begin.   Tic Stac Toe (Accomplice Productions, LLC) Yes game wise, this is a low fidelity Connect 4, but it's the different sized grids combined with the varied backgrounds that could make this take on a simple game a little more complex and enjoyable.[App Store Link]   Bipolar (Mike Colussi) Draw a si…
