Gemini Rue Review

Review Wadjet Eye Games LLC By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 4 months ago
Gemini Rue Review

A few years ago Gemini Rue was released on PC to a lot of critical praise. A cyberpunk science fiction tale about a police officer named Azreal trying to locate his brother who is being held at some sort of deep space memory wiping and retraining facility, you play as both characters as the narrative unfolds towards a stunning climax that earns this title the mantle of one the most interesting adventure games to be released in years. Now it's on iOS! The trick with this review is not t…

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

Wrapup By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 4 months ago
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.…


Cut The Rope dabbles with time travel

Cut The Rope dabbles with time travel

It's been a couple of years since Zeptolabs released a proper sequel to Cut The Rope, the physics based twine snipper that introduced the world to Om Nom, a candy obsessed froggy alien thing with an appetite for sugar that only you can sate. Well, there's a new adventure for Om Nom on the way and it looks like it's going to involve jumping through different periods in time thanks to a fantastical machine. We don't have a lot to go on so far, save for some images from the Facebook profile of Burger King, who are running a promotion to tie in with the game, of Om Nom in pirate get up and wearing a viking helmet. We've also got a story trailer, which we've embedded below, that shows Om Nom fo…


Top 3 iOS Games for March 2013

Toplist By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 4 months ago
Top 3 iOS Games for March 2013

The year is finally on a roll and March saw a solid block of releases that finally made me have to pick and choose carefully. As always the judgment call on these is personal, so let us know what had you excited in the month of March. This is AppSpy's Top 3 iOS Games for March, 2013. Unmechanical (Teotl Studios) $2.99 Univ. While some have complained about the controls, I only found they added an endearing quality to the nameless robot your control. He's just a little bit clumsy thanks to his haphazard construction - that's my story and I'm sticking to it. That said, for a game with such a limited control scheme it manages to throw a whole lot of interesting puzzles at the player, makin…

Rayman Jungle Run updates with 20 new levels

Rayman Jungle Run was one of my top 5 games of 2012, and i'm still trying to perfect every level whenever I have a few minutes to spare. Luckily I can take a break from that endeavour as an update has arrived with twenty brand new levels to play through. Even better, they've added a new gameplay element in boss persuits! Have a look at the trailer. Well, I know what I'm going to spend some of my afternoon on. If you haven't given the game a try yet, now's as good a time as any![App Store Link]…


A Remake of Prince of Persia 2 Headed to iOS

A Remake of Prince of Persia 2 Headed to iOS

The original remake of Prince of Persia was a personal favourite of mine as a downloadable title on consoles. I felt it streamlined the original gameplay while adding a lot of visual flair, especially in the prince's animations. Now Ubisoft have decided to tackle the 1993 sequel, The Shadow and the Flame as well. Here's a teaser trailer. The first level of that game, where you're hopping rooftops, trying to escape the guards has solidified in my memory to this day. Here's hoping this remake adds the same level of excitement and intrigue as the original had in its set pieces. It also looks like they might have changed the way combat works, but we'll have to wait till the game is…


Mr. Runner 2

Mr. Runner 2

In the trailer for this upcoming sequel, it boasts that Mr. Runner was the number one free game on the App Store (we assume if true, that's at the time of release). Even though we missed out reviewing the original, the sequel is looking... well interesting might be the right word. Have a look at the trailer. I mean as a runner it looks pretty generic mechanically, but there's just enough flair in the presentation to make one pause and give it a shot. We'll know more when it releases on te 24th of April.…


Mighty Dungeons Review

Review Josh Presseisen By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 4 months ago
Mighty Dungeons Review

[Editor's Note: The developer has said they're interested in fleshing out the combat by adding in 'hit zones' (head, arms, torso, etc.) with each one affecting the monster in different ways. By making this an option players can switch on for their character, there's the potential for at least some level of depth as you weigh up the pros and cons of hitting a weak-spot and potentially missing.] We're not going to begrudge the Android platform and its initially exclusive titles - not wh…

NES-Retku brings the pixel madness to iOS

NES-Retku brings the pixel madness to iOS

If you like your iOS brawlers tinged with a pixel tinted, retro madness, then NES-Retku from independent Finnish developer Panic Art Studios is probably going to be right up your slightly mental alley. Starring Finnish video game celebrity Retku, the game is about critics who are dragged into an 8-bit beat 'em up when they play a suspicious video game cartridge. Cue lots of punching, running, and coin collecting as you try to figure out what's going on. With plenty of pixelated violence to keep you entertained, and a story that's guaranteed to be more ridiculous than it sounds, fans of old skool brawlers are going to be in combo bashing heaven when the game is released on April 18th. If t…


Dungeon Hunter 4 [First Impressions] Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 4 months ago
Dungeon Hunter 4 [First Impressions] Review

[Editor's Note: Although we've had two days with Dungeon Hunter 4, the nature of the freemium gameplay makes it hard to give a full assessment (thanks in part to the multiplayer proving difficult to test). It should also be noted we made a $5 gem pack purchase; we will highlight how this has affected our time with the game.] There are moments when I regret my final decision after reviewing a game - Dungeon Hunter 3 has haunted me to this day and managed to get a free pass based on its…

Bobbing Review

Review Little Bobby By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 4 months ago
Bobbing Review

Even after this many years, the platformer astounds me with the ability of creative game designers using simple jump mechanics to create new and appealing experiences. Now that's a big of false advertising when it comes to Bobbing. Yes it does use platformer mechanics to create a unique and engaging experience, but as you walk around the circular designs of this world, it is not jumping that will be taking up your time, but switching gravity. The goal of each stage is to reach the end…

Slayin Review

Review FDG Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 4 months ago
Slayin Review

If there's one constant about a lot of iPhone gameplay, it's taking an established genre or game type, and streamlining it as much as possible, to create ultimate accessibility, as well as perhaps a gateway into the genre at hand. Due to the obsession over the last few years of adding RPG leveling mechanics to everything, your average iOS gamer should be quite familiar with the adrenaline rush that accompanies leveling up a character and becoming more powerful. Slayin' tries to take th…

Dungeon Hunter 4 hits the App Store

Dungeon Hunter 4 hits the App Store

The last instalment of the Dungeon Hunter franchise, Dungeon Hunter 3, split fans of the series. Some loved it, others found the new freemium model cloying and unpleasant. Well, Dungeon Hunter 4 is here now, and it's still a free to play title. There is promise, however. Gameloft is offering an epic storyline and plenty of areas to smash, slash, and steal your way through. There are four classes of brawler to choose from, each of which is upgradeable and customisable. If that's not enough for you there's also co-op arenas where you and a friend can battle it out against hordes of demonic scum, and a PvP mode that lets you show how much better your axe is than everyone else's. The game wil…

Gun Commando: Old School FPS Coming to iOS this Month

A game that not only evokes memories of the early days of FPS through its presentation and movement, but has a bit of interesting mechanic in that better weapons are tied to chaining kills on enemies together. Have a look at the trailer for the original Vita release. If the touch controls work well, those looking for a fast paced FPS throwback should enjoy Gun Commando. We'll let you know when a release date is announced aside from just 'sometime in April'.…

Sort of a faster paced Galcon or Tentacle Wars, Cosmic Conquest has an interesting visual style and simple touch interface that looks like we might have another winner when it comes to iOS real time strategy titles. Have a look at the trailer and see what we mean. You'll have to wait a little while, it's not releasing till the 25th of April. We'll let you know more then.…
