Want To Test Games? The Game Bakers Needs You

Want To Test Games? The Game Bakers Needs You

That's right, The Game Bakers are getting more than their fair share of French speaking testers for their upcoming title 'Combo Crew' (which is no surprise as they are also French), but they need a bit more of a balance so they're seeking English speaking testers as well. Getting on board couldn't be easier - just check out their beta page and apply directly via email. If the concept images and this snippet of teaser footage doesn't have you running to try it out early, I don't know what will! [Combo Crew Beta Testers Needed] [Combo Crew FB Page]…


Injustice: Gods Among Us Review

Review Warner Bros. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 4 months ago
Injustice: Gods Among Us Review

I have to admit, I like the idea of a company taking the time to whet the appetite of their fans by providing a portable version of a title they're yet to release. We saw it back at the release of Mass Effect 3, and now we're seeing it again with Injustice: Gods Among Us from Warner Bros. Of course any expectations of such a title being brought over in full, or at least as a complete brawler (albeit with a lowered roster ala Street Fighter's iOS releases) have been completely shot dow…

Animales de la Muerte returns as Zoombies

By Harry Slater, 1 year, 4 months ago
Animales de la Muerte returns as Zoombies

Animales de la Muerte started life as a top down shooter destined for Wiiware, but things don't always go the way people plan. Developed by the maker of Wii sci-fi blaster The Conduit, High Voltage, the game was cancelled due to Nintendo's file size restrictions and apparently disappeared without trace. Now though it's back, minus the top down shooting and with a new name - Zoombies: Animales de la Muerte - some touch screen friendly controls thrown in, and making its way to the App Store. The theme is still the same though; zombies animals have overrun a zoo and you need to stop them from taking over the world. Whereas in the original game you were running around with a machine gun, now y…


Duke Nukem 2 Review

Duke Nukem 2 Review

Every now and then you have to give the marketing department of a company their dues. When Interceptor Entertainment decided to bring the PC classic Duke Nukem 2 to the iOS platform, they opted to keep changes to a minimum, and as such their 'Key Features' list amusing entries such as 'insane VGA graphics' and '256 eye popping colors'. However, as amusing as it is, without some sort of attempt to meet modern gamers half way, this old-school side-scrolling shooter/platformer is only rea…

Brain Twirler set to uh... Twirl your Brain?

Brain Twirler set to uh... Twirl your Brain?

This interesting looking puzzle game is set for release on the 11th of April. It is one of those really no frills experiences, as the screenshot and upcoming trailer will show you, but the gameplay looks engaging enough to forgive that, at least where puzzle games are concerned. Though it does bring up an interesting point. If your core gameplay is engaging enough, there's no excuse for lackluster presentation. I mean this doesn't even have music (at least in the trailer). While gameplay is arguably the most important aspect of a videogame, presentation is important too. It doesn't have to be spectacular, but at least make an effort.…


Master of Alchemy - Vengeance Front Review

Master of Alchemy - Vengeance Front Review

Isn't it interesting what sort of ideas can be turned into tropes in a specific genre? By now everyone has played some version of that puzzle mechanic where you guide the path of a laser with angled mirrors. Likewise, most of you have probably played the game where you have to guide the droplets into a vat through the use of angled barriers. Master of Alchemy: Vengeance Front is a new version of that, complete with steampunky contraptions and reverse gravity. Each level starts with a…

Robi: Cosmic Savior Review

Review GramGames By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 4 months ago
Robi: Cosmic Savior Review

In a lot of these planetary defense games, there's a real sense of scope and responsibility. You're responsible for the continued existence of a planet beset either by aliens or asteroids (or alien controlled asteroids). Robi: Cosmic Saviour takes a more relaxed approach... in theory. His size plus the layout of the planet makes you think that this little robot lives peacefully out on some small moon, but his home is constantly under siege by space monsters. This is where the peaceful…

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

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)…

QI's Top 10 iPhone Games for March, 2013

It's that time of the month again. Yes, it's time for the Quality Index's picks of March's most popular critical games (according to their aggregate sources), but more than that, when the QI list rolls around, you know Appspy's Top 3 isn't too far away at all! I'd say look for that early next week. If i'm wrong, blame Andrew! 1. Ridiculous Fishing - A Tale of Redemption2. Brickout Zero Gravity3. Word Soup4. Cling!5. Super Stickman Golf 26. Nimble Quest7. King Cashing 28. Totems9. The Silent Age10. Block Fortress I'm trying something new this month that might help you out if you look at that list and want to see why these titles made their t…

This week's Let's Play covers yet another free-to-play title, Injustice: Gods Among Us. How does a figher manage to pull off the 'free to play' model? Check out our overview of the gameplay and what the game has to offer (spoilers: it's a light fighter, but makes for a neat distraction if you're waiting to play its bigger brother).…


Disney releases Mittens on the App Store

Disney releases Mittens on the App Store

If you're on the lookout for a game that mashes together some of the more popular aspects of physics based smartphone and tablet puzzling, then Disney might just have the answer for you in the shape of Mittens. It's a game with a whole heap of mechanics vying for centre stage, from Angry Birds aping levels to scenes that borrow from Cut the Rope. Essentially it's a crash course in casual gaming from the last couple of years. If that sounds like your cup of tea you can grab the game right now from the App Store for 99c for iPhone and iPod or $2.99 for the HD version for your iPad. Alternatively, stick around and check out the trailer below to see some cats and some physics.…


Vendetta Online Releases on iPad April 17th

News By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 4 months ago

Some MMO fans might be familiar with Vendetta Online. Launched in 2004 (but running since 2002), this space based action online experience is coming to mobile devices, and by mobile, I mean it's being ported to the iPad on April 17th. We don't review too many MMOs here at Appspy because of the time investment needed to give them a fair look, but watching the trailer, it looks like not only an enjoyable experience, but pretty amazing that you'll be able to play it on the comfort of your own tablet.…

Injustice: Gods Among Us available now

Superheroes have been beating each other up since time immemorial, but few of them have chosen to take their epic smackdowns to the App Store. That is, until now, with the release of Injustice: Gods Among Us for iPad and iPhone. If you're after a straight port of the soon to be released console brawler you're going to be disappointed though. Instead this iOS version is a free-to-play card battler that lets you pick a team of three heroes and duke it out for supremacy in the DC universe. There's some cross compatibility, with items you unlock in the mobile game available in the console game, and there's a pretty impressive roster of heroes and villains for you to choose from, including Batm…


The Other Brothers Review

Review Simian Squared Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 4 months ago
The Other Brothers Review

Joe and Jim aren't your typical mechanics - for one they're not averse to the odd spot of vigilantism when the Mafia and FBI start acting a bit 'weird'. Of course you could draw a comparison between this duo and another famous pair, but it's hardly a giant leap of logic when 3D Attack Interactive call their platformer 'The Other Brothers'... however beyond the basic motivation of saving a damsel in distress, the two are nothing alike (as far as platformers go). While Mario and Luigi h…

BADLAND Review

Review Frogmind By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 4 months ago
BADLAND Review

If my arm was twisted and I had to describe BADLAND by Frogmind as quickly as possible, I'd describe it as a darker and even more disturbing take on the Lemmings concept, but with flying Furbies. It's not perfect, but game doesn't exactly jive with conventions as you throw caution to the wind and smash, stab, crush, and slice hundreds of clones in an attempt to reach the all-important exit tube. And you'll do it all with nothing more than a single finger. By tapping or holding, you'l…
