Penny Arcade The Game: Gamers vs. Evil Review

Review Playdek, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
Penny Arcade The Game: Gamers vs. Evil Review

When you think 'Penny Arcade', you'll more than likely think about the online comic started by 'Gabe and Tycho'. The brand has almost become an institution that defines gaming for the world - irreverent, opinionated, but always willing to share a fun time with all who seek it. Based on the 2011 deck-building card game of the same name, 'Penny Arcade The Game: Gamers vs. Evil' brings together familiar elements of popular titles like Ascension and Dominion while also adding in a unique…

Anomaly Korea Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
Anomaly Korea Review

Although it's dubbed as the sequel to last year's smash-hit Anomaly Warzone Earth, 'Korea' is more of an expansion as it tacks on a handful of new features, along with a handful of stages to enjoy them in. Don't let that discourage you though - if anything it refreshes the franchise and pairs well with the detailed visual overhaul also included in this release. The name of the game is 'tower defense', but instead of defending yourself from waves of enemies with towers, you're defendin…

Pudding Monsters Review

Review ZeptoLab UK Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
Pudding Monsters Review

After the incredible success of Cut the Rope, developer Zeptolab undoubtedly spent more than a moment wondering just how they'd follow it up. As it turns out, they've branched out in a new direction - albeit one still featuring sugary treats and three-star rated puzzlers - and players will have to flick and stick blobs of pudding together to create the ultimate Pudding Monster. In each stage the player is given a handful of puddings they can flick around the screen. As with similarly…

Ravensword: Shadowlands arrives on the App Store

The follow up to Crescent Moon Games's critically acclaimed action RPG Ravensword: The Fallen King has finally arrived on the App Store, bringing with it a fantasy world of truly epic proportions. Shadowlands takes the template laid down by its predecessor, then pushes everything up a notch. If you're a fan of the Elder Scrolls games, then Ravensword: Shadowlands is going to be right up your fantasy street. There's a massive 3D world for you to explore, which some are saying is the biggest ever realised on an iOS device. Throw in first to third person perspective switching on the fly, a huge quest to try and complete, hundreds of objects to collect, and a deep character advancement system…

App Wrap Up (Midweek Edition, 19th December 2012)

Hey Hey dear readers! Well it's a Wednesday and most of you have probably noticed, we have a new site here at Appspy! It should make it a lot easier to comment, track apps, and most importantly, just look around the site. But we're not here to extoll the virtues of the new site, we're here to have a look at some app trailers, and maybe show you something interesting that you haven't seen before, or something that just might entertain you. Let's start things off!   Asva the Monkey (Osja Studio) While this trailer is annoying for not actually showing off how the game works (due to its love of quick edits), you can kind of see what's going on here. Looks like a puzzle tile game, where…


Monsters, Inc. Run Review

Review Disney By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
Monsters, Inc. Run Review

It was bound to happen - the freight train of Disney Interactive's mash-up of successful iOS franchises with their own properties has run in to a bit of a snag. Where previous titles managed to blend its inspirations up and come out with something new, 'Monsters, Inc. Run' opts to simply balance the freemium auto-runner to create something more akin to what the first title should have been. As such the best moments of this title match those of Mega Run by Get Set Games without much in…

METAL SLUG 1 Review

Review SNK PLAYMORE By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
METAL SLUG 1 Review

There's one thing that has held back previous releases of the METAL SLUG franchise on the iOS platform, and that one thing is simply its 'controls'. The games are, without question, just as amazing as they were in the arcades and the perfect fodder for gamers after a hardcore side-scrolling shooter, but games like this live and die by their controls and sadly SNK PLAYMORE has missed an opportunity to come up with a novel solution. If you've never played METAL SLUG, I thoroughly recomm…

Real Racing 3 delayed until February

If you've been waiting with baited breath for EA's shockingly good looking race simulator Real Racing 3, then you're in for a disappointment. Speaking to Pocket Gamer, EA has confirmed that the console quality racer is going to miss its tentative 2012 release date by two whole months. The game was first revealed back in August at Apple's iPhone 5 press conference, and wowed the crowds there with some of the most impressive mobile graphics that any of the assembled throng of tech journalists had ever seen. In a statement to PG, an EA spokesperson said "our goal for Real Racing 3 is to create an experience that resets the bar for racing games on mobile, and we wanted to take some extra…

Dead Trigger gets violently festive update

What better way to fill your life with Christmas cheer than slaughtering hundreds of highly detailed zombies on your mobile device of choice? Well, that's exactly what Madfinger are offering in the latest free update to Dead Trigger. The new update, which pushes the game to version 1.70, features the obligatory North Pole level, where you take on hordes of the undead, most of whom are wearing Santa hats or reindeer helmets. 'Tis the season, after all. You'll also get to face off against Zanta, a new boss character who, if our word skills are up to scratch, is a big fat zombie version of Father Christmas. Looks like we're all going to end up on the naughty list this year. The update is ava…

Running Ronin - Out December 20th

Yes, it's a samurai game, yes it's a runner, but look at that beautiful art and sound design. Hopefully it controls and plays as nicely as it looks. Have a watch of the trailer to see it in motion. As the title of the article says, look for this one to be hitting the App Store on December 20th.…

iPad Finger Twister

Thanks to the increased size of the iPad, there have plenty of apps that utilize the tablet as a defacto game board, and it's not hard to see a group of friends crowding around it, taking turns in some digital version of their favourite games. Enter Fingstar. While not exclusively a party game, this looks like it would be more fun with at least one other person if not more, as you try and accomplish what the game asks of you in increasingly difficult ways. Have a look at this gameplay trailer to see what I mean. The game is due out sometime around the 18-22 of December.…


Middle Manager of Justice Review

Middle Manager of Justice Review

When someone says their game is for free, there's always going to be a catch - either it's merely a demo for something larger, or there are multiple strings attached in an effort to guide you towards their In-App Purchase store. While the former is something we're used to, the latter is still a sore point for many gamers as developers often strip back their game, holding back gameplay behind artificial walls (often through extended waiting periods).

Fluxx Review

Review Playdek, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
Fluxx Review

To understand Fluxx by Playdek and Looney Labs you have to understand 'madness' itself. If you reach back to the days of your youth, there are undoubtedly examples of play time with friends where 'playing' was all that mattered - rules existed in a basic sense, but they were ever-changing and evolving, almost at random. Fluxx embodies this free-spirited insanity to create a card game that is never the same game each time you play it; in fact it's entirely different from round to round,…
