The Answer

The Answer

Hey there loyal Appspy readers! Thank you once again for your responses. Special shout outs to Jastootie and Taekon for their detailed answers. It seems that when it comes to this week’s question, most people go all in or nothing, either having a completionist’s attitude to obtaining all the stars, or not caring about anything but forward progression. My approach can be summed up as optimism slowly declining into apathy. For most of these games, my goals start out noble. “Of course I’ll grab every star, that’s part of the gameplay, and the challenge”. For the first batch of levels, this usually suffices as the game hasn’t become difficult yet, and…


Angry Birds Star Wars II Official Trailer

Angry Birds Star Wars II Official Trailer

Earlier in the year we reported on the upcoming Angry Birds Star Wars II. Well it looks like it's due out next week on the 19th, and Rovio have a new trailer to show off. It highlights some of the jedi powers which look really fun to play with, as well as joining the pork side and unleashing sith powers as the piggies. Have a look for yourselves! I've been off the Angry Birds bandwagon since the original release, but this is looking to pull me back in. We'll know whether that rings true or not next week!…


Where's My Water? 2 Review

Review Disney By James Gilmour, 1 year, 3 months ago
Where's My Water? 2 Review

Where's My Water? 2 is a difficult game to play. Not because the earth-filled maps are especially tough to negotiate. Or because the physics are broken or unpredictable. No, Where's My Water? 2 is a difficult game to play because it doesn't want to be played. At least, not in the manner you or I might be accustomed to. Things start off promisingly. The water-funnelling gameplay of the original title makes a strong return, along with the revival of shower-loving protagonist Swamp…

News Wrap-Up | 13th September 2013

Apple officially revealed the shiny new iPhone 5S and the colourful iPhone 5C to the world this week, marking the beginning of another week of news reports showing cold Apple fans camping on a dirty street with a faraway look in their eyes. However, it was the game Apple used to show off its swanky new A7 processor which had us pitching tents of our own. You'd best start flexing your swiping finger, because Infinity Blade III is due out next week. The newest instalment in Chair's wildly successful action RPG franchise, Infinity Blade III offers two new playable characters whom you will guide through no less than eight new game worlds. And, with each of these worlds containing more square…


Gleamer Review

Review Emmet Morris By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
Gleamer Review

Gleamer is a platformer which combines simple shapes, basic controls, and a pulsing electronica soundtrack. The goal is to collect all five stars as quickly as possible, allowing you to move on another of the game's 50 stages. It all sounds rather standard doesn't it? However, it's amazing how one little mechanic can make all the difference. Your cube moves automatically, and reverses direction when it hits the outer edge of the level. Every time it does this you gain speed. The stag…

Where's My Water? 2: How many levels can you play?

Where's My Water? 2: How many levels can you play?

As you probably already know, Where's My Water? 2 is now available on the App Store. This time out, Disney has decided to make the water-based puzzler a free-to-play experience. This means you can download and play the game without having to spend a penny. However, to stop you blowing through it all in one go, the developer has included an energy system which locks you out of the game when the bar is empty. We thought we'd find out how many levels of Where's My Water? 2 you can play before your energy runs out. Check out the video below for the results. Note: We started with a full energy bar. Repeating a level after failing also drains energy. Energy can be replenished by crossing ba…


Free-to-play sequel Where's My Water? 2 out now

Free-to-play sequel Where's My Water? 2 out now

Disney has just released the first proper sequel to its insanely popular alligator cleaning sim Where's My Water? It's called Where's My Water? 2, and you can download it free from the App Store right now. As with the first game, you have to use your finger to dig a path through the earth in order to channel water into Swampy's pipes and out of his shower head.  This time, however, each of the levels (of which there are over 100) has a series of additional challenges to tackle. These include finding and capturing a Mystery Duck, or trying to complete the level upside-down. Swampy is also joined by his old pals Cranky and Allie. Allie needs steam to power her pipe organ, while…


Star Wars Force Collection | Hands-On

Star Wars Force Collection | Hands-On

Hey, you there! Yes, you! Do you like popular sci-fi movie franchise Star Wars? How about collectible card game Rage of Bahamut? If you answered 'yes' to those two questions then we may have the card game you're looking for. It's called Star Wars Force Collection, and it's Konami's lightsaber-filled take on the collectible card game genre. If you have any experience with these types of game, you know that they are pretty open-ended, making them a bit tricky to review. So instead of rushing to judgement, I decided it would be better to show you 10 minutes of the game in action, and let you decide for yourself. Enjoy, and may the force be etc.…


Bombcats Special Edition Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
Bombcats Special Edition Review

Chillingo has been experimenting with freemium games in recent months. One of these experiments was Bombcats, a game which combined the physics flinging fun of exploding kitties with a freemium gem system. We didn't get around to reviewing the original release, but with Bombcats Special Edition sidelining the gem currency and adding more content, we thought we'd take second look. So there are these trapped kittens. To free them, you chuck an exploding cat (because cats explode now) in…

Fling Theory Review

Review Coding Jar Studios By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
Fling Theory Review

In Fling Theory, you follow a particle through a journey of attraction, repulsion, destruction, and everything in-between. It's a physics flinger in the truest sense of the word. Each stage involves guiding your partcle through series of mazes and pipes, collecting the three stars and plenty of coins along the way. By changing the charge of your particle (yellow for positive, red for negative) you alter the way charged particles in the environment affect your path through the maze. By…

2K Drive | Hands-On

As you may already know, 2K released its very own answer to EA's Real Racing franchise at the tail end of last week. It's called 2K Drive, and it's a freemium game with a premium price tag. Actually, that not strictly true. You see, reports suggest that it was designed to be a free-to-play experience, but was transformed into a premium release at some point during production. It still has all the currencies and stuff, only you don't have pay money for them anymore.  Well, you can. But you don't have to. We don't think. Anyway, as it's a big-old game that'll take a little time to properly assess. However, in the meantime, here's a hands-on video to tide you over till the review…

Rayman Fiesta Run coming to iOS this autumn

Ubisoft has just released the first trailer for the follow-up to its glorious iOS auto-runner Rayman Jungle Run. It's called Rayman Fiesta Run, and it looks dead spicy.  Early reports suggest that developer PastaGames has stuck pretty close to the winning formula it used for last year's App Store hit. You must guide Rayman through a series of exquisitely drawn, but very hazardous environments. As the running is handled automatically, the key to success is choosing when to jump, and when to batter enemies with your gloved, detatchable fists. Though we're clearly on familiar ground with this sequel, you should expect to encounter a few new features. For example, consumable power-up…

Ubisoft reveals debut trailer for Trials Frontier

Trials developer RedLynx has just released the first full trailer for upcoming iOS stunt racer Trials Frontier.  Concocted as a loose tie-in to its yet-to-be-released console sibling Trials Fusion, this free-to-play racer takes place in an even more distant future, and features even more stylised visuals. Though the decision to make free-to-play variations of premium properties usually raises a few hackles, RedLynx chief Tero Virtala believes it's the best way to get people playing. "We want a lot of players to play this game," Virtala told Eurogamer, "and more people are likely to give Trials a try if it doesn't cost them to test it out." Judging by the trailer (below) the game wil…
