iMpulse Controller for Smart Phones

News By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
iMpulse Controller for Smart Phones

In a lot of our reviews, you would have heard us bemoan the lack of responsive controls, especially on games that are ports from console or PC where you have a keyboard or controller to deal with. With that in mind, it's always neat to see a company create a controller to interface with smart phones, and the iMpulse is such a device. Touted as small and wireless, this controller fits on your keyring, has USB connection as well as long battery life. Since it's supposed to go on your keychain, your phone can help you find your keys if you misplace them. While sounding good in theory, developers need to make their games compatible with the device, and its tiny frame might prove uncomfortable…


Preview of Gets to the Exit

Preview of Gets to the Exit

[edit] The game is now available in the App Store. [Link] Developers Roll7 are proud to announce their upcoming title Gets to the End. While the name itself may be self explanatory, it's a game that takes its cue from Lemmings, except instead of controlling the tribesmen, you control the environment. It looks quite amusing, and we'll keep you updated on when it's slated to hit the app store. In the meantime, here's the trailer...…


Captain Antarctica Review

Review FDG Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Captain Antarctica Review

Taking the name at face-value, I had no idea what to expect from FDG Entertainment's latest acquisition, Captain Antarctica. A shield-slinging polar bear did flash across my mind momentarily, but the reality was just as amusing and if you'll forgive me for saying so, incredibly cute too. There are villainous foes to defeat in the depths of the sea and it's your job as an avenging penguin to strap on a rocket, eat as many fish as you can to power it up and turn yourself in to a living…

Review POSSIBLE GAMES Kft. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
TheEndApp Review

If you're going to jump on a bandwagon, you may as well go large or go home. The End by Goroid certainly goes above and beyond, keeping in-tact the basic free-running fun of games like Temple Run while pairing it with a light story and unlockable power-ups that are tied to your skill, not just your patience in slowly accumulating cash. As a survivor of the end-days of humanity, your primary job is one of setting up a camp in order to survive. Duct tape has become a valuable resource,…

The Ruins Guild out on iOS soon

Already out on Android, and coming to iOS, The Runes Guild is a hack and slash game from Potugese developer, WorkEffective. Here's the launch trailer. It looks kind of generic fantasy with some camera oddities, but the if the gameplay and loot gathering is solid, this could be a great addition to the iOS library. We shall see.…

Ski Safari's First Update

For those of you who have uncovered all that Ski Safari has to offer, their first update has hit on the app store. It features a new slope called Howling Hills that is home to a new animal to collect; the wolf!

Time to return to the slopes! [Ski Safarai iTunes - Ski Safari Review]…


The Amazing Spider-Man Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
The Amazing Spider-Man Review

Let us reflect for a moment and remember just how great the licensed Spider-Man games have been for the iOS - it's not hard, there has previously only been one, Spider-Man: Total Mayhem. Despite lacking free-roaming it made up for this with tightly controlled combat with multiple fighting 'combos' to master and a cheesy, but near pitch-perfect storyline for the webslinger to follow. Following up on this effort is The Amazing Spider-Man, a movie tie-in that attempts to pair Gameloft's…

Where's My Perry? Review

Review Disney By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Where's My Perry? Review

If I said I watched Phineas and Ferb regularly and was a fan of their antics, I'd be a terrible liar. In fact, at best it could be said that I knew the show existed; that it was produced by Disney; and it has a platypus in it. Where's My Perry? revolves around said mammalian secret-agent as he finds himself stuck in the complex tube-system used to deposit him at his secret headquarters. It's up to you to power-up the shut down system to get him back in action. Before we go any further…

The Act Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
The Act Review

Most everyone has played Dragon's Lair by now, or is at least familiar with it. If not, go YouTube a clip. It's OK, we'll be here when you get back. Now you might ask yourself how a game with so little actual gameplay became such a phenomenon. Well partly because at the time of release, people had never seen anything like it before, but even today there's something enticing about having control over what appears to be an animated feature. The Act has taken the same approach, plonking t…

Unstoppable Fist Review

Review Ragtag Studio LLC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Unstoppable Fist Review

When one looks back at the 80s, there's usually a pretty even split between those with fond memories, and those who involuntary shudder at the mere mention of the decade's name. Unstoppable Fist kind of walks this fine line, both paying tribute to, and satirizing the excesses of the 80s action movie, all wrapped up in addictive score attack gameplay. While first you may be bombarded with the catchy chiptune soundtrack and bombastic pixel art, the game has you picking a difficulty befo…

New Column: App Wrap Up (Weekend Edition)

New Column: App Wrap Up (Weekend Edition)

Appspy has reviews. We have the Friday news wrap up, and we have the top games of each month. Aside from that we're always thinking about new columns because we are fans of both columns and consistancy. Well we're rolling out a new idea today. We constantly recieve plenty of submissions from developers asking us to review their apps that have just been released, or to create buzz about an upcoming game. Many of these submissions contain games that look like they might be interesting, and our audience might like to hear about, but not every one of these becomes a review (mainly due to time constraints). From now on we're going to highlight the submissions we recieve that look interesting. So…


Max Astro: Stranded Beyond the Stars Review

Review Execution Unit Ltd. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Max Astro: Stranded Beyond the Stars Review

Max Astro: Stranded Beyond the Stars tells you everything you need to know about the game's story right in its title. Your name is Max Astro, pudgy space adventurer, and you have been stranded beyond the stars. To get back home you must traverse alien landscapes while odd block critters fall from above. These critters are the key to not only creating stepping stones to overcome large block towers, but they can destroy large towers blocking your path. Each screen of a level is its own…

Review BEAUTIFUN GAMES SL By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Nihilumbra Review

Much speculation has been made over just why 'Indie' games manage to remain compelling despite their often formulaic design, but it's their simplicity of concept and focus on execution that keep me coming back for more. Nihilumbra by BEAUTIFUN GAMES is the sort of title you'd foist on to your friends under the guise of wanting to share the emotional roller-coaster ride, but the real thrill doesn't begin until you've completed the game. You play as Born, a creature spawned of the Void,…

DEAD TRIGGER Review

Review MADFINGER Games, a.s. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
DEAD TRIGGER Review

Zombies, guns, first-person perspective. It's a formula that's hard to mess up and MADFINGER Games certainly doesn't drop the ball with DEAD TRIGGER, a rote, level-by-level approach to shooting the undead with increasingly powerful weaponry. There is a story buried in here too, though you'd be forgiven for considering it mostly irrelevant as text boxes flood your screen after every story mission, only to unlock more story and side-missions to earn more cash and experience for bigger a…
