Half-Inch Heist Review

Review Mutant Labs Ltd. By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Half-Inch Heist Review

There aren't really too many games in which you get to pull off a heist. Oh sure there's a bank robbery in Grand Theft Auto 4, and there are games like The Getaway that pay homage to those types of movies, but the act of planning an elaborate thieving of some priceless artifact or gem is not really seen. Despite its name, Half-inch Heist really isn't the type of game to provide this experience. No, what we have here is more a quick reflexes arcade experience wrapped up in an eight bit…

Tumblewords Review

Review Minicore Studios LLC By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Tumblewords Review

We don't review too many word games here at AppSpy, at least not lately. This hasn't been for lack of releases either. It's just that after you've played one or two word creation games and then notice that the majority of releases are doing pretty much the same thing, it's hard not to be pessimistic and ignore a lot of what comes out (we should probably be doing that to the endless runner genre, but that's a topic for another time). Now Tumblewords does not reinvent the wheel. You have…

Alien Breed creeps onto Android

Alien Breed creeps onto Android

If you're the sort of Android owning gamer who goes misty eyed for the long forgotten days of the Amiga 500, then it's shaping up to be a pretty good week for you with the release of Team 17's xenomorph blasting classic Alien Breed onto the Google Play Store. The game borrows heavily from a slightly more famous series of films with the word Alien in their title, and casts you as a lone space marine trapped on a crashing space ship with nothing but a horde of slavering monsters to keep you company. Rather than coming out of the walls, these extra terrestrial slaughter machines tend to come out of the floors, and you'll need your wits about you if you plan on surviving through the 22 levels…

Appspy Ch..ch..changes

Hey hey folks! Just a quick update on two changes that have hit the site today. Firstly, if you scroll down, you may see on the right hand side of the screen that the most recent five comments on articles are on display.

Ragdoll Boxing Flopping onto iPad

Start your week off with a bit of amusement and watch this gameplay trailer of the upcoming multiplayer iPad game, Ragdoll Boxing. It releases February 21st and it kind of reminds looks like what would happen if a boxing game were made as a sequel to QWOP. Plus what other boxing game has you able to play as a gorilla?…


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

Wrapup By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
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…


Tapforss Review

Tapforss Review

There was a time when developers considered themselves almost in opposition of the player. It's a dynamic that creates an immediate level of conflict, but the hostility of a developer trying to 'screw you over' wore thin for some and for many others was entirely unwelcome. Tapforss is almost a return to this concept, albeit wrapped up in a cleanly presented time-trial title that manages to remain foreboding despite is colorful palette. As the name would suggest, Tapforss by Like A Cro…

Puzzle Restorer Review

Review Gavina Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 5 months ago
Puzzle Restorer Review

I've never been shy about telling people about one of my favorite iOS series', PathPix. It's something I enjoy on a purely personal level as it not only feels rewarding thanks to the images you create, but there's a zen-like flow to the puzzling. Puzzle Restorer by Gavina Games falls in the same category of pixel-filling, area-painting puzzlers, but with a fresh twist... you already know what you need to make. Players are handed a grid that they can swipe and create paths on - by star…

Rock Runners Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 5 months ago
Rock Runners Review

Where Rayman Jungle Run didn't hold back the punches even despite the utterly brain-dead single-touch controls it uses, Rock Runners by Recoil Games and Chillingo gives players a 'Get out of Jail' card in just about every pitfall and hazard it throws at you. However, where in other games this would remove the challenge and thus impetus for completing a level, Rock Runners retains a sense of flow and keeps throwing hazards at you. In a way, the safety net it provides for the player is…

Metal Slug Wars hits Canada

News By Harry Slater, 1 year, 5 months ago
Metal Slug Wars hits Canada

If you've ever thought that the Metal Slug series of games was too focused on non-stop violence, platforming fun, and slapstick comedy, then you're in luck, because SNK apparently agrees with you. And to right that wrong, they've released Metal Slug Wars on the Canadian App Store. Rather than sticking to the tried and tested Metal Slug formula, the game is a massively multiplayer RTS that sees you storming the defences of the evil General Morden in order to try and put an end to his evil and nefarious insurrection. You'll get to build bases, train your troops and generally do all the fun things that an RTS lets you get along with. Who wants to take on giant bosses single handedly in battle…

Worm Run out on iOS Next Week

Procedurally generated endless runner with swipe controls in which you are a space janitor named Zeke Tallahassee who is being pursued by a ravenous giant space worm. Well my interest is piqued. Worm Run is being released on the 21st of February and will cost $0.99. Have a look at the trailer. It looks innovative and odd enough to be worth a play. Keep a look out for this one next week!…


Roar Rampage Review

Review FDG Entertainment By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Roar Rampage Review

There are a lot of early gaming memories associated with the game Rampage. Taking the form of a gigantic mutant ape, lizard, or wolf, your goal was to wreck havoc by punching buildings and eating citizens all over the United States. In Roar Rampage, the goal is to wreck havoc by punching buildings with a giant lizard, but that's where the similarities end. This dino needs all the help it can get as you whip its giant noodle arm adorned with boxing glove at city structures, as well as u…
