Expand it! Review

Review FDG Entertainment By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Expand it! Review

Expand It is a real eye-opener. Apparently not only were there dinosaurs that resembled what we today call rudimentary shapes, but one of the favorite past-times of these prehistoric abominations was to absorb rainbow streams to obtain a euphoric state of being. It wasn't the ice age, volcanoes, or a meteor that defeated the dinosaurs, it was simply hallucinogens. The goal of each level is pretty simple. At least one of the dinosaurs has to stay in the warm glow of the rainbow sparkle…

Temple Run: Brave Review

Review Disney By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Temple Run: Brave Review

When we first reviewed Temple Run by Imangi, we never imagined it would end up exploding in popularity as it did later that year - the delay between release to almost ubiquity was considerable, but it goes to show that a simple, but well executed concept can eventually make its mark. Now the game has been twisted to fit the often infamous task of being a movie tie-in, featuring Merida from Disney Pixar's latest 3D film, Brave. For those familiar with the original game, very little ha…

Babel Rising 3D Review

Review Ubisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Babel Rising 3D Review

Consider this reviewer slightly impressed, if only because a relatively unknown, but otherwise unique and fun title has not only received a sequel, but a considerably significant one under a major publisher. Babel Rising 3D by Ubisoft and Mando Productions places you in the morbidly entertaining position of a vengeful god, punishing the humans who would, in their vanity, seek to reach heaven through their blasphemous tower - it's dark, it's funny, and you will fail. Constantly. That l…

Nyan Cat added to Techno Kitten Adventure

Nyan Cat added to Techno Kitten Adventure

Techno Kitten Adventure is a game we missed reviewing upon release here at Appspy. Most likely since the reasoning behind which free titles we review is constantly evolving (and hey, if we don't review it, the game is free. You can see for yourself if it's any good). For fans of this game and also those who love the internet meme of Nyan Cat, 21st Street Games is releasing a Nyan Cat pack in the next week for a $0.99 in-app purchase. It includes a whole new song, and three unlockable Nyan Cats. Here's the trailer, and i'm going to stop saying Nyan Cat now. [Techno Kitten Adventure iTunes Link]…


Bluff Wars - Looking For Backers

Bluff Wars - Looking For Backers

I'm always on the lookout for creative new games and while it's great to get my hands on an artsy Indie title or an action-packed AAA title, sometimes I like to kick back and relax with something a bit more casual - maybe on the silly side too. That's why Bluff Wars by FangTooth Games sounds so incredibly appealing - not only are you pitting yourself against your friends, you get to be more than a little bit silly too. Gameplay is meant to work like this: You and your friends start up a game and everyone is given the same question. Everyone comes up with their best fake answer to the question and once everyone has submitted a reply the game then sends these responses to everyone else, alon…

Swipe for iPad (and soon for iPhone) Now Available

Sometimes we at AppSpy get so caught up in the video game world that we forget there are many other amazing ways to use the beastly smart-devices at our disposal, including interactive news Apps... like Swipe. My tactless segway aside, Swipe is a new digital publication aimed squarely at iDevice users, covering not only game reviews, but must-have Apps, cool accessories for your iPhone or iPad, and interviews with industry professionals. Actually, the video speaks for itself: Best of all, AppSpy has contributed content to the publication, so grabbing the magazine is a great way to support us! For those with an iPad, you can grab a free copy of the first issue here. If you only o…


Update for Worms 2: Armageddon

News By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Update for Worms 2: Armageddon

One of the most requested additions to Worms 2: Armageddon has been asynchronous play, or the ability to enjoy more than one game of Worms at the same time (like a Draw Something or Words with Friends). Well the latest update adds this into the mix! Now you can play against your friends (or use the game center auto-match option) to be able to play up to sixteen simultaneous games. Perfect for those who can't get enough squirmy, wormy action. Our review of the the original release of the game can be found [here].…


Bridge Constructor Review

Bridge Constructor Review

When approaching a genre that is already quite niche and well represented by a few shining titles, it behooves a new entry to bring something new to the table. Bridge Constructor by Headup Games makes its mark by challenging players to make bridges that occasionally feel less than intuitive despite the generally realistic physics applied to them. The first major challenge you'll have to overcome is in the actual construction of the bridges themselves, with anchor points being the only…

Min: A Space Adventure arriving June 18th

Min: A Space Adventure arriving June 18th

Cwerki Studios is about to release their debut game, Min: A Space Adventure on June 18th, and we here at Appspy would like to tell you a little about it beforehand. You are tasked with travelling to the centre of planets to extract energy from their cores. It's a game of exploration and upgrades. Have a look at the launch trailer. The gameplay starts at about 0:34. As you can see the visuals and music have had a lot of polish put into them, and hopefully exploring these planets is as fun as it looks. With an emphasis on unlocking planets, upgrading, and time trails for leaderboards, the fact that this game will be free on release is a little worrying (as we've seen the freemium s…


Zombie Ace Review

Review Hothead Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Zombie Ace Review

Zombie Ace ticks almost all the right boxes for releasing an instant hit: It's free, it has zombies, and it's packs single-touch controls for the ultimate in accessibility. Hothead Games have crafted their latest release to a fine point for piercing the market, but all of these buzzwords will fall apart if the gameplay doesn't hold up to scratch. As with so many other zombie-related games, the undead, brain-chomping misanthropes are out to infect the populous, but instead of slowly sh…

Dungeon Village Review

Review Kairosoft Co.,Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Dungeon Village Review

Kairosoft have had a knack not only for creating the most addictive sim games in the app store, but for pumping them out with such frequency, that it's a bit dizzying. Unfortunately this means that a lot of their offerings have become rather stale, taking their established formula and plonking it down in a new scenario, with only minimal tweaks to how the game works. Last month Epic Astro Story revitalized their formula, and now Dungeon Village starts the process of refining their new…

Hands On Preview For Squids Wild West

Hands On Preview For Squids Wild West

It has been a while since we've had a Hands On Preview, but The Game Bakers have been kind enough to set us up with a preview version of the game and we couldn't help ourselves. As mentioned previously in our News Wrap-Up, Wild West puts the adventuring heroes of the first Squids game in to a psuedo-Western environment, complete with all new characters based around this theme. Two of these characters, Calamary Jane and Cleef are featured in the Preview, and while they may be 'Shooters' just like Clint, the base stats are significantly different, with Cleef even featuring a signature 'double shot' to make up for his significantly weaker attacks. Thanks to the new 'compare' option,…


Pettson's Inventions Review

Pettson's Inventions Review

Pettson and Findus are the stars of a series of successful children's books written and illustrated by Swedish author Sven Nordqvist. Pettson is a strange old farmer and Findus is his cat who walks on two legs and wears green-striped pants. In Pettson's Inventions, Findus wants to be able to fly, but they don't have the necessary parts to launch the frisky feline into the wild blue yonder, so Pettson asks the player if they will help find the parts by crafting other inventions to solve…
