Bad Piggies - Build'em-up Puzzling Fun

Bad Piggies - Build'em-up Puzzling Fun

We may have already covered the teaser unleashed upon us by Rovio, but one thing we weren't ready to do was put our foot down on how we feel about their brand-new franchise. Thankfully Yahoo obtained an exclusive video peek at the gameplay we can expect out of Bad Piggies... and it looks great. Much like Amazing Alex the game has a creative spin to its physics puzzling. Personally I'm excited to see just how much freedom we're given in creating and conrolling the contraptions made to ferry the pigs. Check out the video for yourself: The game is set for a 27th September launch date - mark it down and keep an eye on our site for our review! [Yahoo - Bad Piggies]…

App Wrap Up (Weekend Edition, 17th September 2012)

It's another Monday and it's time for another App Wrap Up! The column that shows off some iPhone games that have possible potential based solely on their trailers. If anything looks good and you decide to give one of these games a try, please let us know what you think in the comments. And now, on with the show! Lookout - Blizzard (UNNYHOG Entertainment) Get the snowball to the exit, while dodging fire, rockets, and ultimately, explosions! Full of meaty sound effects, as long as the snowball is responsive enough for some death defying manouvers, this looks like a blast.[App Store Link] Tasty Fish (Dime Studios Pty. Ltd.) Hearing the title makes me think of that line from th…


Blood Roofs Review

Review Gamesmold By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Blood Roofs Review

You're beset by hordes of giant demonic monsters and you find a damsel in distress (albeit managing to survive without much trouble): What do you do? You rescue her, of course, and see how far you can run before the nightmares catch up to you. This is Blood Roofs. Much like other auto-runners of late, you'll find yourself diving in to the screen instead of going from side-to-side. The platforming element of the genre classics is retained as you jump between rooftop to rooftop, but in…

Oh Hi! Octopi! Review

Review kode80 LLC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 2 months ago
Oh Hi! Octopi! Review

A great title will only get you so far. I mean I can't be the only one who read Oh hi! Octopi! and thought “this is going to prove to be interesting”. Sadly with baffling controls and stale yet unique mechanics, this game doesn't have a tentacle to stand on, and with eight spare that is certainly a shame. Tapping the screen performs more than one function depending on the situation, and it's here where the trouble starts. When you have your move button double as your attac…

Infinite Warrior Review

Review Empty Flask Games LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Infinite Warrior Review

'Endless' auto-runners are once again in their heyday on the App Store, but those paying attention won't have missed the distinct swerve towards Infinity Blade's swipe'em-up combat. Infinite Warrior by Empty Flask Games takes a bite of inspiration from both, mixed with a dash of rhythm gameplay, to create something that sounds potentially exciting, but in practice falls flat. You, as the eponymous Infinite Warrior, find yourself swiping the screen to match on-screen cues in order to u…

Friday News Wrap-Up 14 September 2012

Friday News Wrap-Up 14 September 2012

Has the month just come to a halt now that the iPhone 5 has been announced? It feels that way to me... or maybe I’m crazy. Either way lets scrape up what news we can for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 14th of September, 2012. Payback 2 - Long-awaited sequel in developmentThose who happen to be long-time iOS gamers may remember the GTA-like title Payback from the dark-old ages of iPhone gaming. Rendered in software mode rather than hardware, it was a testament to the developer’s dedication, especially as it seemed to start out as an Amiga project. Payback 2 takes another swing at the free-exploring GTA formula, albeit with its own twist of allowing the player to custom…


Steel Yourself for the Release of Bank Rush Next Week

Steel Yourself for the Release of Bank Rush Next Week

Yes it's another game where you see how far you can get before a grisly fate, but there's something about the art style and sense of humour evident in the trailer that cracked through our hard exterior here at Appspy. Bank Rush is due out in the app store next week.…


Run and Gun Zombies with Apocolypse Max

Run and Gun Zombies with Apocolypse Max

Due out in the App Store this week, Apocolypse Max: Better dead than undead is a run and gun platformer that visually reminds me a lot of the Metal Slug games (only with more zombies). The music in the trailer is a little much, but you do get a good sense of the platforming action available to you.…


Wonderputt iPad Review

Review Damp Gnat Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Wonderputt iPad Review

What do you get when you combine a funky, vibrant isometric stage with toads, submarines, volcanoes, and Stonehenge? The answer, cryptically, is the world of Wonderputt by Damp Gnat. It's in this world that you'll attempt to slingshot a ball in to a hole, hopefully picking up points along the way, but more importantly hopefully to have fun. Playing the game couldn't be easier as you hold down on the ball and drag away from it, slingshot-style, letting go once you're happy with your ai…

Monkey Slam Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 2 months ago
Monkey Slam Review

If you're a giant monkey, obviously you want to eat fruit... but what are you to do when said fruit is hidden inside of blocks and gems that are oddly hovering over your head all along your island paradise? Throw a smaller monkey up to crack open the blocks and harvest the goodness inside of course! Monkey Slam is a version of Breakout, replacing the ball and paddles with monkeys, changing up the crazy power-ups and adding a dash more visual flair. Now Breakout as fun as it can be is k…

LAD Review

Review keith curtis By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
LAD Review

We see it all the time on the App Store - copycat concepts that is - and while it's not unique to this specific creative industry, it's hard to be as forgiving when the final product isn't even playable. LAD by Black Chair Games takes a swipe at Limbo with its shadowed-platforming motif, but absurd physics make it all but a frustrating mess to play. Your woes will begin with the menu interface and slowly spiral downwards from there. On a positive note the control layout is a simple on…

QI's top 10 iPhone Games for August 2012

It's that time of the month again. Quality Index has released their Top 10 iPhone games for August, and we are here to relay that information to you, our dear readers. Let's see what made the cut... 1.  Blast-A-Way 9.22. Ticket to Ride Europe Pocket 9.23. Mikey Shorts 9.04. Monster Cube 9.05. Keri Racing 8.96.  McPixel 8.97.  Lost Cities 8.88. Café International 8.89. Horn 8.710. Organ Trail: Director's Cut 8.7 It's interesting to see how their list stands up our own top 3. For instance, our editor's pick Horn hit their number nine spot, but our other two picks didn't make the list. It might show a disconnect between mass appeal and niche gaming as Bastion and The Wor…


Top 3 iOS Games for August 2012

Toplist By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Top 3 iOS Games for August 2012

Bastion (Warner Bros. Supergiant Games) $4.99 iPad OnlyIt's almost unfair that the iPad gets all the fun when it comes to Supergiant Games and Warner Bros. release of Bastion for the iOS platform, especially when it manages to feel so 'at home' thanks to its unique control method. Despite the lack of challenge in beating down enemy after enemy in this brawler, you'll keep coming back for more to learn the tale of 'the kid' and the world he inhabits. A real gem for iPad owners to enjoy. The World Ends With You: Solo Remix (SQUARE ENIX) $17.99/$19.99Balk at the price if you will, but aside from finding a copy on the Nintendo DS (which is - arguably - the 'better' release) for signif…
