FIFA SOCCER 13 by EA SPORTS Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 6 months ago
FIFA SOCCER 13 by EA SPORTS Review

The waves keep crashing against the beach; the sun keeps rising; and the moon’s orbit slowly decays to an eventual stop; such are the many natural things we can can count on to happen every day, including Electronic Arts’ inevitable update to the FIFA franchise. If you detect a slightly sour bitterness on the palette, don’t worry, it’s just a sore point borne of the cyclical nature of the game industry. There is, however, a benefit to this kind of repet…

You owe me a new Acorn

You owe me a new Acorn

Squeak squeaker squeak squeaken. Yeah sorry, when i see a game that features a squirrel called Squeaky, that quote instantly springs to mind. Squeaky at the Fair has to use the rotation of giant wheels to escape a giant wheel himself. It looks like the gameplay of Knights of the Round Cable, with a focus on side scrolling progression rather than score quotas. Have a look at the trailer. The game releases this Thursday…

The Last Express arriving on the App Store on the 27th

If you're a fan of point and click adventures, then Thursday is a day to mark in your diary, because it sees the release of The Last Express, a forgotten classic of the genre created by Prince of Persia's Jordan Mechner. Set on the Orient Express in 1914, the game is a mix of mystery, suspense, action, and romance, all presented in a unique and gorgeous cartoon style. Heavily praised on its original release, the game didn't quite grab the mainstream's attention, but many die hard point and clickers consider it the finest example of the genre ever created. This iOS version is a faithful port by the team at DotEmu, whose previous smartphone and tablet credits include R-Type and Another Worl…


Cosmic Bump Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 6 months ago
Cosmic Bump Review

We do get some odd aliens that crash land on our planet. In Cosmic Bump, these cute little critters need to collect fuel cells to get back into space, and their collection method is a strange one. One might even say inefficient. First they launch themselves into the air where they've set up all manner of pinball-esque contraptions to throw their bodies around until they've reached quota. Failure doesn't only mean being stranded, it also results in a sickening splat upon the hard paveme…

Space Holiday Review

Review Powerful Robot By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 6 months ago
Space Holiday Review

Everyone deserves a holiday, and hey, if the holiday is in space and you're in no danger of explosive decompression, all the better! Space Holiday is a simple little puzzle game in which you have to chart a course around the level's stars excluding all those nasty asteroids that might impede your travel as a portal opens off to a new constellation. The crux of this puzzle experience is in connecting all the stars via a line, with no asteroids being in the middle of the shape that's cr…

Augmented Bug Zapper

Well bug shooter may be more appropriate. We don't usually review Augmented Reality Games here at Appspy. Mostly because they're very annoying to record, but also because aside from the initial gimmick of playng your game in the real world, the positive play expereince doesn't last very long. Nevertheless, sometimes we like to show off what's happening in that space. Here's the trailer for Bugs Mayhem. Seeing the game is free, why not give it a try and see if blasting bugs in real locations appeals to you.[App Store Link - iPhone][App Store Link - iPad]…


Modern Combat 4 announced at TGS

Modern Combat 4 announced at TGS

A video has leaked online that shows off the first trailer for the inevitable fourth enty in Gameloft's soldiering FPS series, Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour. And it's fair to say that the prolific developer ise still finding inspiration from another series of games with a similar name. While the trailer doesn't show much actual gameplay, it does reveal that the game is going to be released in the Autumn. So that's anytime from now until November really. If the previous entires into the series are anything to go by, you can expect a single player campaign featuring lots of running and shooting, and a pretty solid multiplayer mode to boot. We gave the last game in the series, Modern…


Amp, Watts & Circuit Review

Review Jamo Games By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 6 months ago
Amp, Watts & Circuit Review

Sometimes, even robots need a vacation. In Amp, Watts & Circuit, you control the titular characters trying to escape their jobs, in the hopes of some well deserved rest and recuperation. Each level has you in a small isometric area full of buttons and traps, and a starting and finishing tile for each of the three characters. Tapping on the character's portrait will switch to them, and then tapping on the screen will move them in that direction, and if there's no spikes or pits on…

Earn to Die Review

Review Not Doppler By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 6 months ago
Earn to Die Review

Flightless birds and spaceward-bound rodents may make for cute and heartfelt inspirations for repeatedly launching them towards their ultimate goal, but there has always been an element missing from the experience - a sense of skill. Earn to Die by Toffee Games and Not Doppler fleshes out the short, but uniquely fun Flash game title, pitting you against the ever-ready threat of zombies, but for once your progress will also be bound to your skills as a driver. In games of this sort the…

App Wrap Up (Week Ending 21st September 2012)

Wrapup By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 7 months ago
App Wrap Up (Week Ending 21st September 2012)

Hey Hey everyone. It's the end of the week and i have another App Wrap Up for you. As always, here are some games that you might like to play based on their trailers. If you do purchase one and give it a try, why not tell us what your thoughts of it are in the comments? Well, let's get started! Blue Libra (Orator Games) A real time space strategy game. I wonder if it plays like Galcon, or if it's more about squads and strategic placement. Regardless, it looks like a fun romp for strategy fans.[App Store Link] iTapPirate ( Inter Illusion) Part of this looks like a first person action game, the other part is reminiscent of Lethal Enforcers. Oh, and it features pirates, so tha…


Rail Rush Review

Review Miniclip.com By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 7 months ago
Rail Rush Review

There's something inherently enjoyable about mine cart rides in videogames. From Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom to Donkey Kong Country, they remain a memorable part of those titles. Wait, did I say enjoyable? I must have meant hair-tearingly frustrating. Well luckily Rail Rush isn't that psychotic. I mean it eventually becomes that way the longer you play for, but being in the same vain as Temple Run, this sort of exponential difficulty is expected. The formula here is pretty st…

LookOut - Blizzard Review

Review The App Company By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 7 months ago
LookOut - Blizzard Review

No one ever thinks about the plight of the poor snowball. Created to be hurled, rolled, exploded and forgotten. Even its dreams of growing and becoming something more can be stopped by the callous whims of the elements. In this tale of snowball survival the stakes are a lot higher, with literal elemental forces of fire, water, and earth among others, shooting cross screen to turn our balled protagonist into nothing more than a hail of white powder. In design Lookout-Blizzard plays a l…

iMpulse is the world's smallest wireless controller for mobile devices

iMpulse is the world's smallest wireless controller for mobile devices

Some KickStarter projects make you sit up and take notice, and the iMpulse certainly fits into that category. It's a key ring that doubles up as a wireless controller for your iOS or Android device. More than that, it lets you control your media, take photos without touching your phone or tablet, and if you install a special app, it'll even make a sound when you're trying to find your keys. You can use it either way round, so if you're a wierdo who uses controllers backwars you're well catered for, and you can even sync two to the same device, opening up a whole swarm of multiplayer possibilities. The device connects through bluetooth, so battery life shouldn't be too much of a problem,…
