Wraithborne Review

Wraithborne Review

There's something about story doled out through voice-over and still images that makes one not want to pay attention. Wraithborne is a 3D beat em up along the lines of God of War, and really, unlike that game, the exposition about your quests and actions presented here does not aid the gameplay, and it certainly does not add any context, drama, or sense of purpose. Walk around, smash monsters, upgrade your spells to use magic to smash monsters; that's the name of the game here. The ba…

Wow. They're Still Making Bloons TD

Wow. They're Still Making Bloons TD

I know. I'm as shocked as you are. Bloons TD was one of the first Tower Defence games we reviewed at Appspy back in the day, and Bloons TD 5 is released this week. It still looks like the same game, so for TD fans, and people who like monkeys popping balloons, give the trailer a look and perhaps you'll be jumping back on the Bloons Bandwagon.…


Guardian: Tego's Fate

Guardian: Tego's Fate

Perhaps it's the remembrance of Echo the Dolphin on the SEGA Megadrive, perhaps it's the peaceful music and washed out art, but for some reason, Guardian: Tego's Fate struck a chord with me while watching the trailer. Perhaps you will have a similar reaction. The game is slated for release on November 20th, and more information can be found at the website.[Tego's Fate Website]…

Magic Orbz on the Horizon

Slated for release sometime before the end of November, Magic Orbz is an Arkanoid style brick breaker that swaps out bricks for lush 3D environments. It certainly looks like a nice change of pace with-in the genre. Here's the trailer!…


Get Jacked... for Gears!

Get Jacked... for Gears!

Cause the name of the game is Gear Jack. Get it? Anyways, releasing sometime late this week or early next week, this platformer looks like a blast, with flipping, rolling, and plenty of slow downs and wall-jumping. Have a look at the trailer to see what I mean.…


Kings can Fly?

Kings can Fly?

Kings can Fly almost has the same intials as KFC, but the game is not about fried chicken. No, it's about a bored king taking to the skies in a new puzzle game that releases on November 22nd. I could explain how it works, but trailers are oh so much better for that. Take a look.…


The Walking Dead finale hits iOS the same day as console and PC

The Walking Dead finale hits iOS the same day as console and PC

November the 21st is the date for your diary if you're a fan of TellTale's harrowing point and click adventure series, as that's when the final episode, No Time Left will be released world wide. Where iOS device owners have had to wait patiently for the other installments while their console playin brethren ooh, aah, and scream in the next room, that's not going to happen this time, with the game hitting the App Store the same day as Steam, XBLA, and PSN. Interesting, the game is being dubbed as a season finale, which certainly suggests we can expect more pointing and clicking near zombies from TellTale in the not too distant future. It's only a few days since Episode 4 made its way ont…


Storm the Train Review

Storm the Train Review

Upon first loading up Storm the Train, you can be forgiven thinking you're about to play an action or stealth based game centered around robbing trains. Instead we find ourselves with a Monster Dash type run and gun as you hop from one train to the next, collecting new weapons and loads of coins as you blast away the undead, robot hordes, and even ninjas. And just like Monster Dash, the controls are a simple affair of on-screen directional buttons, a jump button, and of course a shoot…

Danny Trejo and Steve Wozniak team up to fight injustice

Danny Trejo and Steve Wozniak team up to fight injustice

It's hard to think of a stranger team up than Danny Trejo - heavily tattoed reformed killer turned action movie actor - and Steve Wozniak - cuddly co-founder of Apple and occasional dancer with the stars. But that's exactly what tablet gamers are going to get in the not too distant future. A promotional tie-in for Trejo's next movie Vengenace called Danny Trejo's Vengeance: Woz With A Coz. Slated for a thanksgiving release, which could legitimately be anytime in the next week or so, we don't know anything about the game other that what we can gleam from its poster, which you can see above. Expect shooting, stabbing, and plenty of cartoon violence when the game hits tablets - which we pr…


Coin Army Review

Coin Army Review

Have you ever played one of those coin tossing games at an arcade (I know arcades aren't exactly common any more unless you live in Asia, but stick with me here)? Coin Army takes the concept of chucking coins forthwith, and trades out the opportunity to win cash and prizes with the success of a war effort... all wrapped up in a freemium package. Mmm, tasty. With the flick of a finger, you send coins out into battle. Think of them as thin, round, and shiny soldiers. Hitting tanks, comm…

Saturday Morning RPG episode 3 arrives

Saturday Morning RPG episode 3 arrives

The third episode of the classic eighties cartoon inspired turn based RPG has hit the App Store, and it promises to be the largest update to the entertaining game so far. Episode 3 appears to focus heavily on robots, which isn't too much of a surprise when you consider its subtitle, To Bot or Not To Bot. There are extra boss encounters, and a new hoverboard that you can unlock to speed up travel times between locations in the game. Throw in some gameplay tweaks and you're left with a decent package. We've embedded a trailer for the episode below so you can get an idea of what you're going to be up against, and the new episode should be available to anyone who's purchased the game as a fre…


Heads Up! Hot Dogs Review

Review [adult swim] By Dave Flodine, 2 years ago
Heads Up! Hot Dogs Review

So what if I told you that on the App Store there was a game, that you can play on your Apple phone or tablet device that consisted of balancing hot dogs onto the heads of complete strangers out in the street? No, your ears did not deceive you, nor did your heart, for what I speak of is true! Heads Up! Hot Dogs is the one and only hot dog balancing arcade experience possibly in the whole of video game existence, and with such a concept, is it any surprise to hear that the publishers at…

Fist of Awesome turns to Kickstarter

Fist of Awesome turns to Kickstarter

Nicoll Hunt, developer of the rather special Hard Lines, has turned to Kickstarter for a final push to get his next game, Fist of Awesome, finished off. The game sees you taking the role of Tim Burr, a Lumberjack who finds his house burned down and his family vanished. Cue time travel, side-scrolling, and an awful lot of bear punching. There's also a chiptune soundtrack provided by Echolevel. With a classic beat 'em up feel, a unique look, and plenty of character, Fist of Awesome certainly has the goods to stand out from the crowd in the App Store. And Hunt has a pedigree too, having worked for a number of AAA developers before finding success on his own with Hard Lines. You can check out…
