Future Building in 2020: My Country - Available Now on the Appstore

Future Building in 2020: My Country - Available Now on the Appstore

Just hitting the App Store yesterday is 2020: My Country, a Simcity-esque game where you need to look after the denizens of the future, protecting them from hazards such as meteor showers and dinosaur. As a bonus, all the character faces are kind of unsettling and creepy looking, at least in my opinion. Have a look at the trailer, and if you like what you see, pick it up on the App Store.

Bastion on sale on the App Store

If you haven't played Supergiant Games's breathtakingly good looking RPG Bastion yet then you're running out of excuses because for a limited time it's available on the App Store for the ridiculously cheap price of 99c. In our 5/5 review we described the game as “a wonderful adaption of an outstanding action title and one that feels at home on the App Store thanks to its control modifications”, heaping praise on its stunning visuals and clever controls. There's hours of game to sink your teeth into here, with ten upgradeable weapons to master, and more than forty gorgeous hand drawn environments for you to explore. So if you're after a challenging adventure that'll keep you pla…

Paper Titans Review

Review Blitz Games Studios Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Paper Titans Review

It's rare, but every now and then a visual style for a game comes along that makes us say, “Huh, I wonder why no one has thought of that before”. Kirby's Epic Yarn is a good example, with its arts and crafts look that gave that game not only a unique visual vibe, but affected the mechanics as well. Paper Titans is one of these games, basing its entire visual style on the world of papercraft, and it pulls it off magnificently. Still, this is a game we're talking about, and i…

Duke Nukem II - Interview with Interceptor Entertainment

Duke Nukem II - Interview with Interceptor Entertainment

Before leaving, Andrew had conducted an interview with Interceptor Entertainment over their recent release of Duke Nukem II on the App Store (our review can be found here). What follows are a few short answers to questions about porting the PC classic, and the future projects of the dev team. Enjoy!   Q1: What appealed about Duke Nukem II so much that you just had to bring it to the iOS platform? A: Duke Nukem II was a great game for its time, and a lot of us grew up with the classic DOS platformers. We felt that the iOS market and mobile market in general had to be re-introduced to these classic dos games that helped shape the game industry as it is today, and Duke nu…

Trailer for Dracula 4: The Shadow of the Dragon

Fans of cheesy adventure games on their iOS devices will be happy to hear that a teaser trailer has dropped for Dracula 4, the latest installment in the Dracula series by Microids. We reviewed the first game a long long time ago (back when I was still creating the video content), and I imagine that the pros and cons of that game are mostly relevant for this newest release. One thing is certain... we travel to Budapest! The game is set to come out sometime during the summer this year (that's summer for the northern hemisphere, so within the next couple of months)!…

App Wrap Up (Week ending 3rd May, 2013)

Hey hey readers, and welcome to the App Wrap Up! You may have noticed that our video content is ramping up again with James lending his formidable skills to the task of our video reviews. If you haven't, stop by our YouTube channel and cheer him on! As always though, we have a collection of iOS games you may have missed or not known about that look like they have something interesting to offer based on their trailers. Let's have a look at what I have for you this week!   Alien Kerfuffle (Kerplect) Now the gameplay doesn't kick in till 1:30 on this trailer, but that first minute and a half had me slightly bemused by these claymation monstrosities (yes it's 3D, but they have that loo…


Lego Star Wars The Yoda Chronicles now on the App Store

Lego Star Wars The Yoda Chronicles now on the App Store

Like a green lightsaber unexpectedly flaring to life, Lego Star Wars The Yoda Chronicles has just appeared on the App Store. It seems the folks at Lego (or, more specifically, developer 4T2 Multimedia) wanted to surprise us with their latest entry in the long-running Lego franchise. And, as Yoda might say, very surprised, we were. At its core, this is a Lego game through and through. This means extensive platforming sections, puzzles, and a healthy dose of combat. Naturally, you can play as everyone's favourite green Jedi Master, calling on his force powers and lightsaber skills when required. Alternatively, if you've been bewitched by the power of the Dark Side, then you can assume the…


Dark Avenger Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Dark Avenger Review

In the last few years, the ARPG has exploded in popularity. For most of the 2000s, gamers were either playing Diablo II or one of the few games made to emulate it. This explosion in popularity even has the progenitor Diablo finding itself ill equipped to make a huge splash in the new market. It's of no surprise then that plenty of developers have tried to bring this style of game to IOS. These entires have met with various levels of success, and now Gamevil is throwing their hat into t…

Sorcery! Review

Review inkle By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Sorcery! Review

Gamebooks have been on the App Store before. We've reviewed Gamebooks here at Appspy before. The problem with them has always had nothing to do with their digital representation (actually, the change to digital has made the experience more pleasant in a lot of ways), but more in that they are more book than game, and the game part is frankly underwhelming, leading to a lot of dead ends, and reliance on luck to get you through the fights. Well with the release of Sorcery!, Steve Jackson…

Impossible Road? I'll Take that Challenge!

Impossible Road? I'll Take that Challenge!

Coming May 9th is Impossible Road. How long can you last on this path of bends, curves, and bumps, designed to throw you off? These kinds of minimalist arcade games are a favourite of mine (for example, Boost 3D), so as long as the controls are tight, I anticipate the release. Have a look at the trailer in the meantime!…

Mosaique Ingrains itself into the App Store Next Week

I used the word 'ingrains' because Mosaique is a game about sand. Get it? These low key puzzle experiences keep popping up on the App Store, and seeing they encourage brainpower plus relaxation, are a welcome addition. Have a look at the trailer and you'll see that Mosaique certainly falls under this category. We're assuming that the game is pronounced the same as 'mosaic', but we're just going off intuition for that one.…

Play feudal RTS Autumn Dynasty for free with new 'lite' app

A 'lite' version of Touch Dimension's arty RTS Autumn Dynasty is now available for free on the App Store. The developer's quirky take on the strategy genre first made waves back in 2009 when it reached the finals of the IGF China Student competition.
