EDGE Extended Review

Review Mobigame By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
EDGE Extended Review

The lead up to the release of EDGE Extended by Mobigame has been an interesting one frought with some legal battles that, while amusing in some ways, has been frustrating to witness as an external observer (let alone as a company caught up in it). Thankfully the sequel to the original EDGE title has been worth the wait and fans of the original have more than a few surprises in store for them. Much as the name suggests, EDGE Extended bolsters the original gameplay with some new power-u…

SPY mouse Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
SPY mouse Review

Sometimes it's easy to forget that Firemint, the developers of the Real Racing series for iOS have another game they're rather famous for - a little line-drawing App called Flight Control. While racing has its fans, Flight Control made perfect use of the touch-screen interface to create a fun game based around the pressures of multitasking. So what if Firemint decided to boil the concept down in to something a bit more bite-sized? What if you were rewarded for your puzzle solving skil…

Spy Mouse Sneaks Onto the New Zealand App Store

Spy Mouse Sneaks Onto the New Zealand App Store

Over in New Zealand, lucky iPhone punters already have the opportunity to download Spy Mouse, Firemint's line-drawing puzzler that we had our beady eyes on last month. No worries, though, for the rest of the world will be able to join in the cheese-grabbing, cat-avoiding fun later tonight. Once the game touches down in your neck of the woods, you'll find 72 stages (spread across six different game worlds), loads of achievements, and a host of secret levels. Spy Mouse retails for 99c, but if you fancy grabbing it for free, you can enter Firemint's ongoing competition here. Or if you happen to be a regular patron of Starbucks in the US, Spy Mouse will be offered as part of the iTunes 'Pick…


Rogue Sky Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Rogue Sky Review

I'm not sure how I feel about controlling evil-looking anthropomorphic hot-air baloons as they pummel their way back home, but then again at least it's a side-step from the usual cute-sy content you see on the App Store. Rogue Sky by Pebble Bug Studios and Chillingo tests your ability to not only navigate maze-like environments, but also your ability to destroy your opponents in the most efficient ways possible to score it large at the end of the level. You're only given two controls…

iBlast Moki 2 Review

Review Godzilab By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
iBlast Moki 2 Review

Despite my time at AppSpy, I can't claim to have 'played them all' (the games that is) and as such when a sequel like iBlast Moki 2 from Godzilab drops out of the blue it's hard to know if you're looking at an improvement or just an update. Thankfully it's not hard to use the 'way-back-when' machine to make a comparison and suffice to say if you enjoyed the first title, you're going to have a literal blast with the new one. What makes iBlast Moki 2 so much fun is the way in which play…

Solve The Mystery In New iPhone Puzzler 1112 episode 03

Solve The Mystery In New iPhone Puzzler 1112 episode 03

The mysterious adventures of Louis Everett in Agharta Studio's 1112 puzzle series on iPhone continue today, as the third instalment is released on iPhone. Expect to learn more about the causes of your bizarre headaches and strange dreams during your and Louis's reintroduction to the town of Jalonsville. This latest chapter in Louis's ongoing narrative will apparently be longer than the first two put together, so hopefully it should answer any questions you might have had. Hopefully. The second episode in this gripping tale earned 5 stars from AppSpy on review, so the quality of the storytelling is beyond dispute. Find out if 1112 episode 03 can match its predecessor's superb script now…


Candy Boy Review

Review Colorbox By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
Candy Boy Review

Candy Boy is what would happen if Dr. Mario had been a platformer instead of a puzzle game. Casper finds that his beloved Candy Land has been infested by horrific candy hungry worms. It's now up to him to use the power of sugary treats to send these parasites to oblivion. Each level consists of worms of different colors nestled amongst candy of different colors. Armed with a small supply of candy himself, Casper needs to place the blocks so that three or more of the same color matches…

DEO Review

Review eVeek, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
DEO Review

Indie games often get an unfair reputation of being able to 'get away' with providing less content, gameplay, diminished visuals or audio simply because they're not a major studio. This leads to fans and critics talking about the 'experience' as being worthwhile as opposed to every other basic feature of the game being worthwhile and as such the word has been tarnished as it's now synonymous with being a videogame hipster.What does this have to do with DEO by Strapped to a Meteor? Well…

Cubes vs. Spheres Review

Review ShockPanda Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Cubes vs. Spheres Review

War is hell and there are times when decisions need to be made that may be questionable, but this is about survival; survival against the evil Cube hordes. So yes, it may not be entirely 'fair' to exploit their attraction to 'pink' cubes, but dammit soldier, when they're breathing down your neck you won't have time to complain! Cubes vs. Spheres by ShockPanda Games is ostensibly another first-person turret based shooter - albeit with flick controls - and you'd be forgiven for wonderin…

Ride Some Crazy Waves With Eddie The Pig on iPhone

Ride Some Crazy Waves With Eddie The Pig on iPhone

Kelly Slater, Duke Kahanamoku, Johnny Utah: all legendary figures in the surfing world. To that Hall of Fame, we shall soon be adding Eddie, Eddie the Pig. I'm convinced. Eddie's the star of DnD Studios's ePig Surf, a casual, tilt-based, 99c adventure in which you steer the surfing swine over the thrashing waves. Being an amiable little grunter, Eddie has acquired a huge number of aquatic friends on his boarding travels over the summer. Unfortunately for our favourite squealer, any physical contact from the local dolphins, turtles, and octopi will result in a wipeout. Oh, and should Eddie bump into an inconveniently placed island or whirlpool, that's Game Over, too. One thing Eddie wil…


Grand Prix Story To Be Next Kairosoft iPhone Management Sim

Grand Prix Story To Be Next Kairosoft iPhone Management Sim

Since my last post on time-management sim specialists Kairosoft, the Japanese studio have published not one, but two more forms of legalised iPhone crack. Aside from being insanely addictive and, therefore, life-destroying (in the nicest possible way), Kairosoft's Mega Mall Story andPocket Academy share another common characteristic: 4 stars from AppSpy. Whether the next iPhone episode in the company's 'Story' saga can go one better is, of course, merely hypothetical at the moment. Oh, what was that? Speak up. You don't know what the next iPhone episode off the Kairosoft conveyer belt is going to be? Let's put 'em out of their misery then, Andrew. According to K…

Cado Review

Review ClearCut Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 8 months ago
Cado Review

Sometimes it's nice to sit back and enjoy a simple game that just feels good to play. Cado by Clearcut games have taken the sketchbook motif that was insanely popular amongst iPhone games a couple years ago and have used it to make a well handled physics action game. Cado, a black ball needs to get to the portal in each stage. The way he travels there is through rotating the level left or right, causing him to roll around the various obstacles into safety. There is also a star to coll…

RALLY-X RUMBLE Review

Review NamcoBandai Games Inc. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 8 months ago
RALLY-X RUMBLE Review

(The App Store is currently not allowing downloads of this App - a video will be made as soon as it's available again.) The original Rally-X was an interesting concept. Let a rally car loose in a maze, where it has to collect all the flags to proceed, while avoiding the evil rally cars chasing it. Now seeming that Namco Bandai are remaking all their arcade classics for the iPhone platform, we have Rally-X Rumble. It's the same game under some new graphical flair, with an emphasis on a…
