Musical Platformer Jazz: Trump's Journey On Sale For A Limited Time

Musical platformer Jazz: Trump's Journey has seen its price discounted for the first time since its January release. It's currently available to download for 99c, down from its usual price of $2.99. In this game, you are cast as Trump, a talented trumpeter pursuing music and love in early 20th-century New Orleans. The character and the injustices he faces are based loosely on the life of Louis Armstrong. This side-scrolling platformer has you jumping around its 2D levels with brass in hand, ready to use the power of Trump's music to solve environmental puzzles within each level. Jazz: Trump's Journey won us over with its evocative visuals, its jazz-smooth animations, and its refined platf…


Gunman Clive Review

Review Bertil Horberg By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Gunman Clive Review

When one thinks of run and gun platforming set in the wild west, one might think of the fantastic arcade title Sunset Riders. Now western games are rare in themselves but there is a market for them, and with western platformers being ever rarer, it's nice to see a game like Gunman Clive emerge. The girl has been captured by the villain and it's up to Clive to rescue her while enacting some old western justice on all who stand in his way, be they outlaw, predator or waterfowl. One of t…

Friday News Wrap-Up 20 April 2012

Right now I'm existing in a state that's roughly equivalent to being a small child awaiting Christmas day - my weekend is all planned and I'm off to nerd it up and chat with personal heroes such Richard Horvitz and Will Wheaton. But before I head off we have the small matter of this week's Wrap-Up.So lets get crackin' on the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 20th of April, 2012. The Bluecoats - North & South - May 10thNostalgia can be almost criminal in its ability to gloss over the past and make you believe you loved something despite its flaws, but one thing is for sure, North & South was a game that got me hooked on strategy titles. Aside from the occasional battle and side-s…


Shaun the Sheep - Fleece Lightning Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Shaun the Sheep - Fleece Lightning Review

[This title was the Mini-review for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 20th of April, 2012] Shaun is back once again, but this time he doesn't have is fellow wooly-friends in-tow. In fact he's going solo, sprinting at top speed to out-run the pigs to win the 'Fleece Lightning' competition. Each of the game's 80 levels will only take a few seconds to complete, but getting to the end isn't easy thanks to a host of hazards, not to mention the pigs themselves. Thankfully the controls are mor…

Coign of Vantage Review

Review bobblebrook By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Coign of Vantage Review

For those of you not in the know, a voxel is essentially a pixel in the third dimension, so instead of images made up of single colored squares, you know have images made up of single colored cubes. Coign of Vantage has strewn these voxels around and through the power or rotation, it's your job as the player to find the correct vantage point and put the image back together. There are two game modes; normal, and 'ten on time'. In normal mode you start with forty five seconds on the clo…

Sega Bring Their Acclaimed RTS Franchise Total War To the iPhone

Sega Bring Their Acclaimed RTS Franchise Total War To the iPhone

Sega's acclaimed real-time strategy franchise Total War has finally marched its way onto iPhone, with Total War Battles: Shogun allowing you to sample the series's trademark historical warfare for an outlay of $6.99. Built specifically for the iPhone, Total War Battles: Shogun offers accessible, short-form conflicts that don't skimp on strategic depth. The battles may be short, mind, but the war is long - Total War Battles: Shogun's campaign lasts over ten hours. Naturally, the entire Total War interface has been redesigned for touchscreens, which means that managing your armies should be a cinch. But, none of us will know for certain, of course, until our definitive AppSpy review is fil…


Total War Battles Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Total War Battles Review

The Creative Assembly's Total War series has never really conformed to conventions, skirting around and mashing together elements of turn-based and real-time strategy titles, real-time tactics, and even RPGs. The end result is a deeply engrossing series where every decision you make can have a dramatic impact on the storyline and your progress. As such it's no real surprise to see the latest release for the iOS platform following in the footsteps of its PC-based kin. It won't take lon…

Shark Dash Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Shark Dash Review

After first learning about Shark Dash, one thought pinged around my mind, 'I wonder who developed this game for Chillingo/Clickgamer'... after a double-take I realized I was dealing with a Gameloft title and my world promptly fell on its head. All of this may sound melodramatic, but gamers have long come to terms with the App Store's cliches, though if Shark Dash proves anything it's that Gameloft has the chops to produce fresh and addictive games. You should know the basic formula by…

Paper Monsters Is Free For A Limited Time

Charming 2.5D platformer Paper Monsters is currently available free of charge from the App Store for the first time since its January release. Mixing 2D side-scrolling and 3D environments allows the developers of Paper Monsters to play with perspective across the game's 16 expansive levels, which see you warping between the background and foreground in search of collectible goodies. As you guide your cardboard character through the four distinct game worlds, you'll explore the oceans, take to the skies, battle gigantic bosses, and probably unlock a couple of Game Center achievements along the way, too. We enjoyed Paper Monsters's quirky aesthetic and cheerful atmosphere, awarding it a sol…


PrismaPix Review

Review Kris Pixton By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
PrismaPix Review

There's a reason why we at AppSpy recently reviewed Kris Pixton's latest release in the Pathpix series - it was to act as a refresher or reminder of the developer's particular puzzling style. Ultimately it acts as a perfect introduction to an entirely new (relatively speaking) puzzling experience in the form of PrismaPix, and while it may feature the same core goals of PathPix, the gameplay itself is fresh and utterly engrossing. Mixing elements of games such as Minesweeper, Fill-a-Pi…

Burnout™ CRASH! Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Burnout™ CRASH! Review

Mayhem and destruction - these two factors have continually kept the Burnout series addictive and appealing to play, no matter its iteration. Burnout Crash! by Criterion Games and EA Mobile is no exception, though its reliance on random success can wear thin if you're after something that requires more skill. Don't let that thought get you down though. Learning to control your vehicle (in so much as you can) to create the biggest chain reactions can be immensely rewarding - not the le…

DevilDark: The Fallen Kingdom Review

DevilDark: The Fallen Kingdom Review

Despite their brutishly simple style, Action-RPGs remain steadfastly appealing; being able to dispatch hordes of enemies and then sifting through the chunky remains for useful items seems to push all the right kind of buttons for many gamers. DevilDark: The Fallen Kingdom by Triniti Interactive attempts to cash in on this simplicity, but it pulls its punch a little too much, making for a less than compelling title. While there are no specific classes, players can find themselves beati…

Sky Gnomes Review

Review Foursaken Media By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Sky Gnomes Review

When one thinks of gnomes the mind often wanders to those creepy all-too-happy garden statues strewn across your neighbor's yard. Who would have thought that they were dare-devils? OK, in fantasy it's long been known that gnomes like to tinker and invent contraptions, but if we are to believe Sky Gnomes by Foursaken Media, their favorite form of entertainment is to build racing machines that allow them to plummet from the sky as fast as gnome-nly possible.Sky Gnomes is an entirely mult…
