Crazy Cars Returns!

News By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 6 months ago
Crazy Cars Returns!

The original Crazy Cars was released in 1987 for the Amiga that received average reviews. To remind you of what we're dealing with, here's some gameplay footage. Now Anuman Interactive is recharging the franchise with the release of Crazy Cars: Hit the Road (not to be confused with the Sam and Max game with the similar title). Here's a trailer. Slated for release on October 15th, this looks like a nice update and could be worth a look, but there is already a large arcade racer market on the iOS so we'll have to wait and see how it holds up.…


Amazing Runner Review

Review Freyr Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 6 months ago
Amazing Runner Review

It seems every man and his dog is throwing their hat in to the 'Temple Run' arena of game-a-likes, and Freyr Games are no exception with their Unreal Engine powered title Amazing Runner. Once you hit start you'll be placed on a futuristic track lined with golden gems that must be collected while avoiding obvious hazards such as the occasional 'robot' placed in your path or game-ending pits that open up before you. As with its inspirational title, tilting will move you back and forth…

Rovio launches Bad Piggies at the App Store

Rovio launches Bad Piggies at the App Store

If you've ever worried that maybe the green, egg stealing pigs in Angry Birds never get a chance to tell their side of the story, then fret no more, because Bad Piggies finally lets you set the record straight. The latest game set in the Angry Birds universe, Bad Piggies lets you build contraptions in order to save the poor defenceless piggies from the attentions of the annoyed avians. The game is still all about physics, but this time you're building rather than destroying, attempting to ferry your worried looking pigs to safety on a ramshackle vehicle of your own creation. You can pick up Bad Piggies from the App Store for just $0.99, and while it might not be the most original of tit…


God of Blades Review

Review White Whale Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 6 months ago
God of Blades Review

Fans of classic sci-fi fantasy or 70s synth/prog-rock may need to brace themselves for the likes of White Whale Games' God of Blades. With writing that invokes shades of HP Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard, and artwork that feels like a nightmare trip through Frank Frazetta's mind, there's not an inch of this game that isn't dripping with a strangely appealing other-worldly sheen. These connections are strengthened even further thanks to each of the game's four chapters having its own '…

Relaxing Lanterns

Haven't you ever just wanted to lounge back and relax by connecting floating lanterns together? If so, the soon to be released game Lanterns by Sydney-based developer Big Time is ready to release as soon as possible (they're just waiting for Apple's final confirmation). Have a look at the trailer and see what you think. There's definitely a zen-like vibe going on - equal parts of Bejewelled and Fruit Ninja definitely shine through and we'll be covering it once the game is available.…

DEMONS' SCORE Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 6 months ago
DEMONS' SCORE Review

When you bring together notable composers responsible for the stunning soundtracks of games like Final Fantasy 11, Nier, and Secret of Mana, you’d like to think their work is showcased appropriately. I’m not entirely sold on the ‘appropriate’ part when it comes to the magic-transforming-teenager-and-skimpy-clothes department of Demons’ Soul by Square Enix, but the rhythm-based gameplay is perhaps the best way to showcase its music. You play as Ser…

God of Blades hitting the App Store today

If you long for a time when rock albums were adorned with blade wielding heroes and video games were much simpler fare, then God of Blades is going to be perfect for you. The game hits the App Store today, bringing with it plenty of hacking and slashing action, and a unique look that sets it apart from the rest of the side scrolling genre. There are new swords to collect and plenty of enemies to slay in an immersive single player campaign that's all about reclaiming your memories and saving your world from oblivion. God of Blades should be turning up in the App Store anytime now, and its blend of storytelling adventure and violent sword play make it well worth checking out.…


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

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, 7 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

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

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…
