Spice Bandits Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Spice Bandits Review

In one of the more funny introductions to a game we've encountered in a while, Spice Bandits introduces the Spice Bandits, a galactic brand of pirates who plunder entire worlds in search of their precious addictive habit. Now they've set their sites on Earth. Most games would have you fight back the invading forces, but not this one. Do you have what it takes to help the pirates beat back Earth's defense force all in the name of spice? If so, please continue with the review. Once the…

Little Acorns Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Little Acorns Review

Little Acorns has a simple premise. Your family of squirrels has returned from an outing to discover that your acorn stash has been pinched by thieving raccoons! Knowing that one should never let a raccoon get away with this sort of thing, and as the head of your squirrely household, you must traverse across the years and seasons to re-obtain what is rightfully yours. This is what one might call a bite-sized platformer. Each level only takes a couple minutes to complete and is its own…

J-Werewolf: EP1 Review

Review Daniel Novais By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
J-Werewolf: EP1 Review

Female ninja Eileen is just minding her business jumping from rooftop to rooftop when a crowd gathers around a spaceship that has just descended. A enigmatic T-rex named Trex pops out and enlists Eileen to help him regain control of his flying saucer. From there it's a side scrolling trek through the ship, defeating enemies, exploring different zones, defeating bosses, and upgrading your abilities. Think a Metroid game with a more lighthearted feel. Eileen is controlled by on-screen b…

Friday News Wrap-Up 17 February 2012

New servers for AppSpy's website, great game releases that have made my jaw drop and some amazing pieces of news - this week has certainly come up Milhouse for this reviewer. What could have this grizzled old-soul so excited? Well lets jump right in to the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 17th of February, 2012. NERF Lazer Tag With iOS FeaturesIn my household there exist four people. All four of us have NERF weapons of varying sizes - you could claim some were merely for self defense, but honestly, sneaking up and launching a secret barrage of foamy-dart death is just too hilarious to pass up. So when NERF decided to move to the Lazer Tag arena, I got a little excited... better still b…


Tim Schafer Confirms Plans For iOS Version Of Double Fine Adventure

Tim Schafer Confirms Plans For iOS Version Of Double Fine Adventure

Tim Schafer, the man behind classic point-and-click adventures such as Day of the Tentacle and Grim Fandango, took to crowdfunding website Kickstarter last week in a bid to raise $400,000 to make a brand-new adventure game. Schafer explained that publishers were unlikely to ever back such a project, and so asked fans to fund its development instead. At the time of writing, fans have pledged more than $1,850,000 on the project's Kickstarter page. The game's budget has increased quite suddenly, then, and Schafer's team at independent studio Double Fine have been looking at how best to use all that extra cash. In a video emailed to the project's backers (posted below), Schafer confirmed pla…


League of Evil 2 Review

Review Ravenous Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
League of Evil 2 Review

When League of Evil first hit the App Store, it proved (once again) that platformers don't have to feel clunky and imprecise thanks to poor controls. The snappy and responsive system of double-jumps, wall-sliding and wall-bouncing allowed for complex level designs that tested the players skill, making every star earned feel like a badge of honor. League of Evil 2 doesn't so much as push that boundary any further as it refines an already amazing title in to something with better visual…

Beat Sneak Bandit Review

Review Simogo By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Beat Sneak Bandit Review

Simogo are quickly establishing themselves as the quirky, but undoubtedly rock-solid sort of developer you can trust to bring quality gaming to the App Store. Beat Sneak Bandit is the latest release from the Swedish developers and is easily their greatest triumph as it elegantly blends addictive gameplay with audio/visual elements to create a jaw-dropping puzzle experience. All the clocks in the world have been stolen, but the Beat Sneak Bandit has a good idea where they've all been t…

News By James Nouch, 2 years, 5 months ago
League of Evil 2 Brings Another Dose Of Scientist Punching To iPhone

League of Evil 2 has hit the App Store today, launching at the discounted price of 99c. Boasting 103 levels of tight platforming action, this much-anticipated sequel has you bounding through 2D environments with a vital mission. To punch scientists in the face. Evil scientists, mind. With stars awarded based on how quickly you complete each level, three-star obsessives will have to use every acrobatic trick in the book to ace the stages, including double-jumping, flipping, and wall-jumping. This follow-up to Ravenous Games's 5/5 platformer League of Evil does away with the pixel-art visuals of its predecessor, opting instead for hand-drawn animations by indie studio Bulletproof Outlaws.…


Monster Wars Review

Review Liv Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Monster Wars Review

Fans of Liv Games' previous head-to-head castle defense amalgamation Legendary Wars, should be happy about the release of Monster Wars. Less a sequel, and more a companion piece, in this title you take control of the monsters that have been slayed en masse in not only games of this genre but pretty much every fantasy game out there. It's time for revenge! While the majority of the gameplay is your standard castle vs castle game, there is more to think about than which low cost monster…

Gorilla Gondola Review

Review Electric Pixel Factory Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Gorilla Gondola Review

If the SNES Classic Donkey Kong Country has taught us anything, it's that an ape will go to any length for bananas. Even travel by hazardous ski lift apparently. In Gorilla Gondola you are enabling this Gorilla's banana habit as you travel through exotic locations, trying your hardest not to have his gondola smash on the rocks. How would he travel without it? The first thing you'll notice upon loading up Gorilla Gondola is the catchy beat pumping out over the menu screen. The second t…

Blot Review

Review Majestic Software By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Blot Review

A lot of the time it can be hard to be a fair when you see so many instances of the same game. The trick then becomes to look for the innovative or failing that, what the title has to offer in terms of fun. Blot is essentially Jetpack Joyride taking place on a student's school notebook full of sketches. It is this setting however that provides the angle for which reviewing yet another Jetpack Joyride clone can be tackled. You control a blot of ink weaving its way through the hazards o…

100 Trials Review

Review Fusion Reactions By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
100 Trials Review

Interestingly, despite a brief burst of popularity some time ago, Rogue-like dungeon crawlers have all but moved away from the spotlight, being increasingly dominated by turn-based and strategic RPGs. 100 Trials by Fusion Reactions extends the original 100 Rogues' 'Challenge Mode' in to full-fledged game, piggybacking on the recent trend of turn-based titles and adding its own spin on things. For those familiar with the original title, not a lot has changed - in fact you'd be forgiven…

Zombie : The Rescue Review

Review GOGN Entertainment By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Zombie : The Rescue Review

Did anyone ever play the Commandos series? It was good at creating a lot of tense moments when you had to pick the right time to slip between guard patrols so as not to be noticed. Firemint brought that sense of timing and tension to the iPhone with Spy Mouse and now GOGN entertainment have added zombies to the mix with Zombie : The Rescue. Yep, it's the zombie apocalypse... again. There are hostages that need rescuing from the bloody brain biters but getting them to safety isn't the…

One Epic Game Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
One Epic Game Review

Hyperbole isn't usually something that we take videogames to task for. I mean there can be some backlash on failed promises and over-hyping of a game (just ask Peter Molyneux), but generally when a game describes itself as epic we all just kind of smile politely and carry on with whatever we're doing. This is how we felt when approaching One Epic Game. Attempting to throw many of the app store's overused gaming conventions in a blender to leave them open to satire, you play a hero who…
