Code Giveaway - Puzzle Retreat

Today you're all in luck! The fine lads over at The Voxel Agents have graced us with five codes for Puzzle Retreat to give away.

Instead, I'll be posting all five codes over the next 24 hours - first come, first served. Do try to be kind enough to say if you've activated the code - I'll endeavour to strike-out the posts once they're gone. Best of luck and while you wait, check out our review!…

The Room leads iOS Bafta nominations

After the prestigious movie awards over the weekend, it's now the turn of the games industry in the UK to reward the movers and shakers of the last twelve months, and there's more than a few iOS games in the mix for the big prizes. Chief amongst them is The Room, which is up for four awards - Artistic Achievement, Best British Game, Best Debut Game, and Best Mobile and Handheld game.

Elsewhere, Terry Cavanagh's hectic and highly addictive Super Hexagon is up for Best British Game, and Simogo's e…

Ron Gilbert Opens For PAX Australia 2013

Ron Gilbert Opens For PAX Australia 2013

While I was already excited by the prospect of seeing The Protomen, MC Frontalot, and the RoosterTeeth crew (again) at PAX Australia, this latest tit-bit has taken me over the edge. Gamers may know Ron Gilbert for his work on Monkey Island, DeathSpank, and more recently pairing up with Tim Schafer in discussing the 'Double Fine Adventure' on Kickstarter. I'd be putting it lightly if I said his work has been extremely formative for me, and perhaps many other gamers headed to the giant gaming event, so you can expect me to be there front and centre. We'll be covering the event live from Melbourne so you don't miss out on any juicy iOS news we can score. Want to head to PAX Australia 2013? T…


App Wrap Up (Weekend Edition, 11th February, 2013)

Wrapup By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 6 months ago
App Wrap Up (Weekend Edition, 11th February, 2013)

Hey hey readers! It's time for yet another edition of your favourite regular feature on the site, the App Wrap Up! As always we're going to take a look at some trailers of released games that may have fallen under the radar. These games were chosen as while they may not have wide spread appeal, there is something about them that looks interesting. Let's get started!   Food Run HD (Pixels on Toast) I dunno, there's just something about not only leading a parade of running food items through a level that amuses me, but the levels themselves look well designed with a nice sense of flow. Might be worth checking out for platformer fans.[App Store Link]   Diibs Odyssey (Boxed Pig)…


Dungelot Review

Dungelot Review

The rogue-like is a very niche and hardcore game genre. Simply, they are dungeon crawling RPGs that follow the design of the game Rogue, released in 1980. They often share a map overview perspective, rely on random levels, usually have a form of permanent death, and are notoriously difficult and unforgiving. Dungelot is an attempt to introduce a more casual player to the genre through a simple tap interface and streamlining the exploration and leveling mechanics. Is this attempt at acc…

Momonga Pinball Adventures Review

Review Paladin Studios By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 6 months ago
Momonga Pinball Adventures Review

Momonga Pinball Adventures is the story of a tribe of Japanese flying squirrels that are captured by a clan of owls, and thus our hero Momo is mentored by a Panda to go and save them, later running into a Mole on the journey. This is going to be one of those games isn't it. The core gameplay is pinball, as you use paddles to fling Momo against targets and through passageways all the way to the end of each individual level. There's something fascinating about taking the mechanics of a h…

Fishlabs unveils Galaxy On Fire - Alliances

Fishlabs unveils Galaxy On Fire - Alliances

So far the Galaxy on Fire games have been about flying around space, shooting anything that moves, but Fishlabs, the German developer behind the hugely succesful franchise, has decided to do something a little different for the next entry. Step forward Galaxy on Fire - Alliances, a free to play massively multiplayer RTS that sees you taking control of one of three different species - the Terrans, Vossk and Nivelians - and using your tactical nous, diplomacy skills, and resource management knowledge to take over a hitherto unexplored part of the cosmos. “Never before in the eight years of our existence have we worked on a title with a team as big as the Alliances team,“ s…


Top 3 iOS Games for January 2013

Toplist By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 6 months ago
Top 3 iOS Games for January 2013

I hate playing the catch-up game, but with this extended dry spell of a release period, I guess there's no harm in clearing our backlogs. In the least it's made for a far more comprehensive list to choose from for January, so lets find out who topped the charts in AppSpy.com's Top 3 iOS Games for January, 2013. Table Top Racing (Playrise Edge) $2.99 Univ. Look, I may be the only one who played Table Top Racing and put it down without losing an iota of excitement from the hype, but even without my personal bias the game is a solid entry in to the 'Kart' genre. The key to its success is its simplicity; there's no bloat to weigh it down, so you can jump in, enjoy a race or two, and jump out…

New trailer for Blitz Brigade

New trailer for Blitz Brigade

Two bits of news have just been released for Gameloft's upcoming multiplayer FPS, Blitz Brigade. First, there's a new gameplay trailer, which you can check out at the bottom of the article. Second, the game has been soft released in France. For those who don't know what that means, essentially the game has been given a small scale release in a single territory to test how it works and make sure it's robust enough for a global release. It also means, thanks to some Google Translate magic, we've been able to dig up some more info about the game. It looks like there are going to be five classes to choose from - soldier, gunner, doctor, sniper, and stealth agent (we expect that'll become secre…

Friday News Wrap-Up 8 February 2013

It seems we're still in a bit of a dry period when it comes to game releases, and also news, so today's Wrap-Up is a bit shorter than usual. I guess there's nothing for it then but to jump straight to it... this is AppSpy.com's Friday News Wrap-Up for the 8th of February, 2013. Star Wars Pinball - Releasing as Standalone and IAP for Zen Pinball With all the recent news and nerdy rumblings about the production of Star Wars VII, VIII, and IX (as well as the spin-off films rumored to center around Boba Fett and Han Solo), it was only a matter of time before the franchise turned its hands to videogames once again. This time around we'll be able to get our hands on a Star Wars themed pinball…


METAL SLUG 2 Review

Review SNK PLAYMORE By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 6 months ago
METAL SLUG 2 Review

If you've followed our reviews for any length of time you'll know that our experience with the METAL SLUG series on the iOS platform has been... well not so great. Nostalgia manages to keep the game afloat, but emulation can only do so much to recreate the responsive controls and smooth visuals of the Arcade classic. METAL SLUG 2 doesn't do much to address the problems of previous releases, but it does have one thing in its favor... it was a much simpler game. As such players can take…

After Burner Climax Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 6 months ago
After Burner Climax Review

I'll readily admit that I have next to no idea what I'm doing when I play After Burner. In just about every instance I've simply done the best I can and never sweated the details. After Burner Climax was designed to punish such 'casual' mindsets - it was, after all, an Arcade title - but the iOS release has a leniency to it that actually makes the chaos more of an amusing distraction than a brutal smokescreen for the unrelenting enemy. Whether you jump in with the touch or tilt based…
