Project 83113 Review

Review NCSOFT By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Project 83113 Review

While we most often associate the 'bullet-hell' moniker with shoot'em-ups, platformers have had more than their share of crazy screen-exploding weapons being discharged at the player. When a main character has four arms and nearly infinite ammunition, you can bet things are about to get crazy and Project 83113 by Fabrication Games and NCsoft manages to deliver. You play as 'Belle', the great hope of the 'organics' in their fight against the 'machines'. Simply put, your job is to blow…

Review Stolen Couch Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Ichi Review

Often a physics puzzler can be too fiddly with its positioning and line drawing isn't always precise depending on how large your fingers are, but tapping, now there's a control that works without fail. 'ichi' by Stolen Couch Games follows the golden rule of puzzlers - keep it simple, make it challenging. With only a single tap you can change the layout of each of the puzzle-room's elements, either rotating blocks; phasing them in and out of existence; or even creating temporary barrie…

More info on Forma8

Having recieved a press release from Mixed Bag studios, we're happy to give you more information on Forma8. Here's the background of the story: "In a distant future, on an alien planet, a small exploration probe called forma.8 has a mission to accomplish: he needs to find something before it's too late. Your mission is vague, the planet is big, you got parted away from your companion by an accidental event, and you just know you have to delve deeper and deeper below the planet surface.  But not everything is like it seems. Ancient civilisations, great perils and dystopian visions await you..." Boasting an intuitive control scheme that plays to the strengths of the platform, th…

E3 Trailer for upcoming physics puzzler, Jumpster

G5 and Vogat are showing off their new physics puzzle game Jumpster this week with a brand new trailer. Take a look for yourself: While it looks to use the same physics flinging formula that so many games have adopted in the wake of the success of Angry Birds, the video showcases not only a vibrant alien world, but interesting mechanics like portals and UFOs. The game is slated for release in July so keep on the lookout for our review.…


Rock(s) Rider Review

Review ECA-Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Rock(s) Rider Review

From time-trial racers to skill-based Trials HD-esque games, the App Store has surprisingly seen it all and in a number of guises. Rock(s) Rider by ECA-Games attempts to consolidate it all in to one title and the end result is a mixed one that doesn't live up to the same expectations of the inspirational games it wears its sleeves. This is no more evident than in the game's artistic presentation, mixing stylish and slick menus, and gorgeous industrial environments with signs that make…

Shoot The Zombirds Review

Review Infinite Dreams Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Shoot The Zombirds Review

From creating pottery, to knocking down cans and stopping waves of red and blue jelly monsters, Infinite Dreams easily lives up to their name as they approach a wide variety of games and styles of play from casual to hardcore. Shoot The Zombirds acts as the nightmarish sequel to last year's Shoot The Birds and while much of the basic gameplay is in tact, small tweaks keep the game fresh and place an emphasis on careful, precise shots. In particular, Pumpkin Boy packs far fewer arrows…

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

As we usher in the new month it's only fair we say farewell to the month that was by awarding the best of the best with our personal recommendation. In a surprising last-second dash, May has turned out quite a few excellent titles, so lets see what has made the cut for 'AppSpy.com's Top iPhone Games for May, 2012'. Little Things Forever (KlickTock) $0.99 Univ.Reprising their clip-art I-Spy-esque title for the iPad from a couple years ago, KlickTock's Little Things Forever is an excellent example of elegance in gaming. From its clean, clear visual style, to it's wonderfully complex hand-designed collages and near endless randomized gameplay, there's little reason not to have this g…


First Look: Forma8

First Look: Forma8

This is truly a first look. More information on this mobile adventure game should drop this week at E3 (and we have contacted the developer for additional info), but for now all we have are all the screenshots available over at their site. What strikes me is the evocative alien landscapes, that are quite reminiscent of Another World. If this game is drawing their main inspiration from that cinematic platforming classic, we should also expect a clean user interface, situational controls, and a load of atmosphere. We'll present you with more on this title as details are revealed to us. [Forma.8 Website - Forma.8 Facebook]…


KOTOMON Review

Review Monstars Inc. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
KOTOMON Review

Now you may be asking yourself, “What is a Kotomon”? No, it's not a Pokemon that's wearing a jacket, although that would be a good guess. All you need to know is that whatever it is, it contains cute monsters and plays like Katamari Damacy mixed up with some sort of pinball shooter. Each level has a number of monsters that need to be herded towards the gated goal. To help them along, you can pick them up, and tap the screen to fling them out onto the world like a lifeless…

Score! Classic Goals Review

Review First Touch By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Score! Classic Goals Review

Even those of you who aren't fans of the closest thing to a world sport we have in football (or soccer as it is also known), should be able to admit the most exciting part of the game is the goals. Now of course this is partly due to them being such a rarity, but it's also due to the combination of skill, strategy, and just the right dash of luck for everything to come together and wow the crowds. Score! Classic Goals is a football game that focuses on recreating the most famous goals…

Alive4ever mini: Zombie Party Review

Alive4ever mini: Zombie Party Review

The first few levels of Alive4Ever Mini take place on a beach. We try not to be topical in our reviews here at AppSpy as topical never ages well, and our videos will always be with you long after current events are forgotten. Nevertheless, given the recent attack in Florida, reviewing this zombie game at this point in time is rather fortuitous. Luckily in this more stylized, cartoony edition of the Alive4Ever franchise, we are not dealing with creepy cannibals, just a good smattering o…

Pocket God Episode 45 - Dance Dance Execution

Who would have thought that all these years later, Pocket God would still be getting amusing and entertaining updates? For those of you that wanted more dancing with your pygmys, the latest update includes a Dance Dance Revolution mini-game. Failure leads to death by disco ball so you'd best have your finger rhythm down pat (unless you wish to suck up some helium and hear sound clips from the infamous David after Dentist youtube video). The latest episode of the Pocket God youtube series will show off not only the new game, but the new in-app purchases of sweet dance moves and theme song by Parry Gripp.…


Heroes Call Review

Review Defiant Development By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Heroes Call Review

There's nothing inherently wrong with the freemium model in theory. A player can pick up the game for no cost, and if the gameplay is rewarding enough, the hooks will sink in, and the player wont mind shelling out a few dollars to stream-line their experience... or at least the pay walls won't be obtrusive enough to annoy the player away. Sadly Hereos Call by Defiant has not struck upon this balance, offering an intriguing hack and slash Diablo-esque experience, saturated by a choice b…
