Ridiculous Fishing - A Tale of Redemption Review

Review Vlambeer By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Ridiculous Fishing - A Tale of Redemption Review

Ridiculous Fishing is kind of the iOS gaming equivalent of a super group. It's created by Super Crate Box's Vlambeer, Unify and Bit Pilot's Zach Gage, and Greg Wohlwend of Hundreds fame. Quite a team for a simple little game about fishing, but then Ridiculous Fishing isn't really about fishing, it's about redemption. If that premise sounds a little ridiculous to you, I think that's the point. We've played this type of 2D fishing game before. You cast your line with a tap, and then it…

App Wrap Up (Week ending 15th March, 2013)

Hey hey readers, and welcome to your favourite regular feature on Appspy, the App Wrap Up! We got a bunch of new trailers for you of games you might have missed but look like they have something interesting to offer. Without further ado, let us begin!   Sling it! (Greg Lobanov) Not only does this game have a delightful collection of sound effects, but it's a novel use of the flinging mechanic. As long as it's easy to switch between moving around the screen and slingshotting the enemies, this could be a lot of fun.[App Store Link]   oOo (mELTINGsKYsTUDIOS) The trailer really doesn't give you a good idea of what the gameplay entails, but it looks relaxing, and I like how it…

Keep rolling, rolling, rolling, rolling

Keep rolling, rolling, rolling, rolling

There have been a few games that look to take up the mantle of Marble Madness / Super Monkey Ball esque gameplay. With the tilt functionality on the iPhone, you think there'd be a lot more. Ah well, Mazement is releasing on April 4th and has you rolling around, navigating labyrinths, and freeing your brethren. Have a look at the trailer.…

Towelfight 2: The Monocle of Destiny Review

Towelfight 2: The Monocle of Destiny Review

There you are, spending a quiet day with your monocle and your pug, when suddenly a temporal rift opens up, whisking you away to a world where one God is planning on using you to overthrow his rival and thus take control of the land once again. In exchange for your help, he'll send you back home. Towel Fight 2: The Monocle of Destiny doesn't take itself too seriously, which you'd expect of a game where your primary attack is using your enchanted monocle to hurl animals to their doom.…

Sushi Mushi Review

Review Aspyr Media, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Sushi Mushi Review

Some game names are just fun to say, whether you put on a silly accent or not. Sushi Mushi is such a game. Of course a fun name doesn't necessarily translate into a fun to play game, but that's of course why we have this review. So what is Sushi Mushi? It's a match-3 game that works on two levels, where you roll as much sushi as possible to feed your gluttonous yet cute little monster, who rises through the ranks of sushi roller until you get to the prestigious black belt. Oh, and it's…

Badlands gets a release date

News By Harry Slater, 2 years, 1 month ago
Badlands gets a release date

Frogmind Games's gorgeous looking physics based sort-of-a-platformer Badlands has been given a release date and a brand new gameplay trailer. You can check out the trailer at the end of the story, and as for the release date you can expect the game at the start of next month. April the 4th to be precise, which just misses the projected release date we had of “March”, but only by four days, so we guess we can forgive Frogmind. Especially if Badlands plays half as good as it looks. Described by the dev as a side-scrolling action adventure, the game sees you leading a blob through a variety of traps and hazards. Multiplayer modes are included, which look like frantic races through…

Dice game set to get you in a Tizzy

Dice game set to get you in a Tizzy

Cause the game is called TiZ. It looks to be a match-3 game that has the random element of dice rolls thrown in. With multiplayer as well, this could be an intereting play. Have a look at the trailer. The game drops tomorrow on the 15th.…

PWN: Combat Hacking slices onto the App Store

News By Harry Slater, 2 years, 1 month ago
PWN: Combat Hacking slices onto the App Store

PWN: Combat Hacking is a strategy game with a difference. Rather than battling it out over digitally realised terrain with little tanks and soldiers, you're fighting against firewalls and other security in an attempt to break into a secure server. Your weapons here are viruses and trojans, and the nodes you're trying to capture are actual nodes rather than places on a battlefield where terrifying monsters spawn. The whole game looks gorgeous, with a stylish cyberpunk aesthetic that should at the very least keep your eyes interested for a while. “I’ve always loved those ludicrously fake hacking scenes that you see in movies, and it seemed like the perfect premise for a video gam…

Super Stickman Golf 2 Review

Review Noodlecake Studios Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Super Stickman Golf 2 Review

When we first encountered Super Stickman Golf by Noodlecake Studios it was hard to keep our joy contained. At its core the game was a by-the-numbers 2D golfing title, however the clever addition of power-ups that required skill to obtain, and added even more depth and gameplay options once obtained made it a solid gold title. Super Stickman Golf 2 has a huge legacy to live up to, and while the core once again remains the same, it's the small details that continue to keep the series run…

Outland Games Review

Review Uber Entertainment, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Outland Games Review

Outland Games is a continuation of the world set up in Uber Entertainment's team based competitive multiplayer frag fest Monday Night Combat. I guess winning that particular game nets you a one way ticket to the outlands as a reward. It's not freedom per say, but another chance at freedom, this time in the form of an endless runner (so no, freedom is an impossibility). How does it stack up in this oversaturated genre? Let's find out. Your character is equipped with a double jump and a…

Unstoppabot launch trailer

Unstoppabot launch trailer

SeeThrough Studios has released a launch trailer for their endless runner-puzzle game mash up Unstoppabot, which hit the App Store earlier in the week. The game mixes logic puzzles with an ever-running robot to create something a bit unique. As you can see in the video we've embedded below the game has a neat looking cartoon style, as well as a wicked sense of humour running throughout. Hoepfully it'll make a pleasant change from some of the more po-faced endless runners we've been confronted with recently. Unstoppabot is available now from the App Store for nothing at all and you can grab it by clicking here. Or if you'd prefer, stick around and watch the trailer below to get an idea of w…

Vector Review

Vector Review

Parkour - also known as 'free running' - has enjoyed a sort of cultural high over the last decade. This is especially true in the gaming sphere as the idea of smooth, flowing movement makes for great platforming. Vector by Nekki is not the first to come to this conclusion, but its sharp visuals and incredibly easy to master controls allows the game to explore the kinds of challenges other platformers would shy from. The basic formula is much as you've seen in any other side-scrolling…

Fury of the Gods Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Fury of the Gods Review

Smashing small, angry humans in to a fine red paste (or an even finer black powder) with the powers of a god is something we've had fun with before in games like Babel Rising. So it only makes sense that Spectral Games would seek to exploit the mythos rich Greek pantheon for their take on the almost literal 'tower defense' genre in Fury of the Gods. You're given control of one of three different gods (Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades) and tasked with protecting their temple from the angry hu…

Melodive Review

Review johan gjestland By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Melodive Review

As the medium matures, discussions about what constitutes a game or not are getting more prominent, as the traditional tropes of win states, lose states, and game mechanics get overshadowed or left behind by narrative and audio/visual experiences. This new balancing of how some games are put together, and what they elicit from their players will continue as more and more games like Melodive are released. There is a high score game hidden in what this title offers, but the mechanics and…

Astro Shark HD Review

Review Unit9 By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Astro Shark HD Review

Astro Shark is the unlikely love story between a shark that looks like a killer whale, and a dog. Hold on, it doesn't stop being weird there. So one day the dog is kidnapped and then the kidnappers escape with it in a rocket. Not one to let this slide, the shark engages its hydro thrusters and rockets off into the cosmos after it. Apparently whale sharks can breathe in space. So on the surface this game seems like another orbital flinger where you use the momentum of traveling around p…
