Mass Effect Infiltrator Receives Mass-ive Update

News By James Nouch, 2 years, 4 months ago
Mass Effect Infiltrator Receives Mass-ive Update

Mass Effect Infiltrator on iPhone has just received a substantial update, which adds a bonus mission and a host of tweaks to the tie-in sci-fi blaster. In Infiltrator's campaign mode, you play as a veteran agent of Cerberus - a shadowy humanity-first organisation which has been trafficking aliens for medical experimentation. In the newly added bonus mission, you take control of one of these captured aliens, and you're naturally pretty keen to escape the facility's medical bay before your body is 'donated' for scientific research. Thankfully, shooting your way out should be a little easier than before, for the new update delivers improved aiming and the option to disable the game's divisiv…

Friday News Wrap-Up 13 April 2012

Another week, another Wrap-Up... except for that last Friday. I was too busy gorging myself on pre-Easter candy and slipping in to a sugar-coma; I assure you, the headache I received was more than enough punishment for not having something prepared. However, lets cut to the chase.This is the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 13th of April, 2012. Spellsword - Glorious arena platformingWhile Muffin Knight may have beaten Super Crate Box to the punch on the iOS platform (and subsequently forged its own path), the base concept of arena-based platform combat is a simple, but addictive one. I'm glad to see more developers trying their hand at this burgeoning genre. Spellsword by Everplay is l…


Monster Takedown Review

Review Gameshrub By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Monster Takedown Review

Monster Takedown is a little confusing. The game starts with you picking from a list of humorous giant monsters. The monster of your choice in then plonked down in the middle of a hysterical metropolis and as the player you need to do all you can to protect the army from taking it down. The thing is you're protecting the monster, not trying to destroy it, and on top of that, it isn't really doing anything. It's just sitting there looking bewildered. Hey, those smoking skyscrapers might…

Infinity Blade II Price Cut For Limited Time Only

News By James Nouch, 2 years, 4 months ago
Infinity Blade II Price Cut For Limited Time Only

Chair's swipe-to-slice blockbuster Infinity Blade II is currently available at the knockdown price of $4.99 (it usually retails for $6.99). Building on the superb foundation laid by Infinity Blade, this sequel boasts an additional three combat styles, a massively expanded world, and a global network of slashers with whom you can team up to defeat titanic enemies. And while Infinity Blade's innovative combat system remains intact in this sequel, it's been refined and tweaked to near perfection. The character levelling and customisation has also been lovingly buffed to a high sheen, and now offers significantly more depth than its predecessor. If you remain unconvinced by that feature list…


Crow Review

Review Sunside Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Crow Review

Despite what your intuition may tell you, simplicity - nay, 'elegance' - is very hard to pull off when designing a game, especially when you're trying to convey a deeper meaning and experience. Crow by Sunside Games strips back the rail shooter and while its individual parts may seem simplistic, getting the full story will require dedication and skill. The titular crow is sent from another plane of existence to act as a vessel of vengeance, eventually getting caught up in the struggle…

Max Payne Mobile Review

Review Rockstar Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Max Payne Mobile Review

Much like when Rockstar released GTA3 for the iOS platform, I feel the best thing I could say for most gamers is that Max Payne Mobile lacks almost nothing of the original PC and console releases. In fact, while later games may have refined the bullet-time shooting mechanics, the game looses almost none of its fun-factor and charm. Poor Max is at the center of a conspiracy that first claims the life of his wife and child and eventually comes to a head years later while working as an u…

In the world of iPhone games, it has come to be known that the true arch enemy of the ninja is indeed fruit. After a couple successful years of slicing through their juicy nemesis with wanton abandon, a massive counter-offensive has been launched and now one poor little eight bit ninja is fleeing for his life trying not to be trampled by gigantic bouncing watermelons and coconuts Trapped in your dojo, you move the ninja left and right using the arrows at the bottom of the screen.

Nightfall Review

Review Playdek, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Nightfall Review

As much as I profess a love for board games, I must admit my preoccupation with video games keeps me out of the loop (as it were) when it comes to upcoming or popular titles. Nightfall, an aggressive deck-building card game from Alderac Entertainment Group, has gathered a strong following since its release last year - so it's no surprise to see Playdek, the iOS developer who brought out releases for Food Fight and Ascension, pushing this title out the door as well. Those familiar with…

Max Payne Hits the App Store At Midnight Tonight

Max Payne Hits the App Store At Midnight Tonight

Remedy Entertainment's third-person shooter Max Payne is out now on the New Zealand App Store, and will be slow mo diving its way into other territories at midnight tonight. Launched in 2001 to critical acclaim, the console version of Max Payne cast you as an undercover cop with a silly name and a murdered family. And when Max's best friend and DEA colleague is killed, things go from bad to worse. Payne is the prime suspect for his friend's murder and his mob cover is blown, leaving Max to fight a war on two fronts. Fortunately for us, that war is jolly good fun. Max Payne on iPhone has you spraying slow motion bullets at all manner of nasty men, while Max's moody internal monologue prop…


Top 3 iPhone Games for March 2012

Toplist By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Top 3 iPhone Games for March 2012

I'm honestly a little surprised that I didn't receive more death-threats for not having a Top List up for March by now, but I can only assume people were satiated by the immense amounts of candy they're likely to have recently consumed. In any case, the delay was necessary to catch up to all the releases that came out at the month's end, so now we have a definitive list of titles to choose from. What's my personal pick of the month? You'll just have to wait and see...This is AppSpy.com's Top 3 iPhone Games for March, 2012. Swordigo (Touch Foo / Ville Mäkynen) $1.99 Univ.Swordigo was a bit of a dark-horse, promising little more than a simple Action-RPG platformer, but deliveri…


PathPix Joy Review

PathPix Joy Review

Pathpix Joy is the fourth game in the Pathpix series. What is Pathpix you ask? Well we could tell you to go check out our reviews of the original, but we're going to be nice and tell you here. Pathpix is a favorite amongst puzzle games here at AppSpy. Andrew has made his way through the multiple offerings while all these years later, I'm still playing the original. It's elegant, doesn't require too much straining of your brainy lobes, and upon completion of a level, offers not only the…

Saturday Morning RPG Review

Review Joystick Labs, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Saturday Morning RPG Review

It's easy to feel conflicted about Saturday Morning RPG by Joystick Labs and Mighty Rabbit Studios - in particular, it wears its inspirations on its sleeve and proudly waves a joyous flag in support of all things classically cartoonish from the 80s. While you don't need a first-hand crash-course in pop-culture to enjoy its offerings, without them it's that much harder to ignore its flaws. However, lets start out with the good: the first chapter is entirely free to play - you're at no…

Epic Astro Story Review

Review Kairosoft Co.,Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Epic Astro Story Review

Over time, that spark; that special something; that novelty, if you will, of a Kairosoft 'sim' game started to wear off, even despite refinement of the genre from its rough beginnings on the iOS with Game Dev Story. Seeing the same elements again and again brought an ugly sense of deja vu, but Epic Astro Story breaks the cycle, daring to re-purpose ideas we've seen before to create something novel once again. At first the player is greeted, almost like an old friend, to the familiar l…

Sir Benfro’s Brilliant Balloon Review

Review Explore and Create Limited By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Sir Benfro’s Brilliant Balloon Review

If the art style of Sir Benfro's Brilliant Balloon were to have any comparison, it would probably be to children's books like 'Where the Wild Things Are' that visually painted an alien world of both wonder and a little foreboding. Sir Benfro is off to explore new places and chart the exotic creatures that inhabit them, and it's up to the player to guide him through his journey safely. Sir Benfro travels by way of firefly filled balloon. Their lights propel him along, but every so ofte…
