Infinite Warrior Review

Review Empty Flask Games LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Infinite Warrior Review

'Endless' auto-runners are once again in their heyday on the App Store, but those paying attention won't have missed the distinct swerve towards Infinity Blade's swipe'em-up combat. Infinite Warrior by Empty Flask Games takes a bite of inspiration from both, mixed with a dash of rhythm gameplay, to create something that sounds potentially exciting, but in practice falls flat. You, as the eponymous Infinite Warrior, find yourself swiping the screen to match on-screen cues in order to u…

Friday News Wrap-Up 14 September 2012

Friday News Wrap-Up 14 September 2012

Has the month just come to a halt now that the iPhone 5 has been announced? It feels that way to me... or maybe I’m crazy. Either way lets scrape up what news we can for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 14th of September, 2012. Payback 2 - Long-awaited sequel in developmentThose who happen to be long-time iOS gamers may remember the GTA-like title Payback from the dark-old ages of iPhone gaming. Rendered in software mode rather than hardware, it was a testament to the developer’s dedication, especially as it seemed to start out as an Amiga project. Payback 2 takes another swing at the free-exploring GTA formula, albeit with its own twist of allowing the player to custom…


Steel Yourself for the Release of Bank Rush Next Week

Steel Yourself for the Release of Bank Rush Next Week

Yes it's another game where you see how far you can get before a grisly fate, but there's something about the art style and sense of humour evident in the trailer that cracked through our hard exterior here at Appspy. Bank Rush is due out in the app store next week.…


Run and Gun Zombies with Apocolypse Max

Run and Gun Zombies with Apocolypse Max

Due out in the App Store this week, Apocolypse Max: Better dead than undead is a run and gun platformer that visually reminds me a lot of the Metal Slug games (only with more zombies). The music in the trailer is a little much, but you do get a good sense of the platforming action available to you.…


Wonderputt iPad Review

Review Damp Gnat Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Wonderputt iPad Review

What do you get when you combine a funky, vibrant isometric stage with toads, submarines, volcanoes, and Stonehenge? The answer, cryptically, is the world of Wonderputt by Damp Gnat. It's in this world that you'll attempt to slingshot a ball in to a hole, hopefully picking up points along the way, but more importantly hopefully to have fun. Playing the game couldn't be easier as you hold down on the ball and drag away from it, slingshot-style, letting go once you're happy with your ai…

Monkey Slam Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Monkey Slam Review

If you're a giant monkey, obviously you want to eat fruit... but what are you to do when said fruit is hidden inside of blocks and gems that are oddly hovering over your head all along your island paradise? Throw a smaller monkey up to crack open the blocks and harvest the goodness inside of course! Monkey Slam is a version of Breakout, replacing the ball and paddles with monkeys, changing up the crazy power-ups and adding a dash more visual flair. Now Breakout as fun as it can be is k…

LAD Review

Review keith curtis By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
LAD Review

We see it all the time on the App Store - copycat concepts that is - and while it's not unique to this specific creative industry, it's hard to be as forgiving when the final product isn't even playable. LAD by Black Chair Games takes a swipe at Limbo with its shadowed-platforming motif, but absurd physics make it all but a frustrating mess to play. Your woes will begin with the menu interface and slowly spiral downwards from there. On a positive note the control layout is a simple on…

QI's top 10 iPhone Games for August 2012

It's that time of the month again. Quality Index has released their Top 10 iPhone games for August, and we are here to relay that information to you, our dear readers. Let's see what made the cut... 1.  Blast-A-Way 9.22. Ticket to Ride Europe Pocket 9.23. Mikey Shorts 9.04. Monster Cube 9.05. Keri Racing 8.96.  McPixel 8.97.  Lost Cities 8.88. Café International 8.89. Horn 8.710. Organ Trail: Director's Cut 8.7 It's interesting to see how their list stands up our own top 3. For instance, our editor's pick Horn hit their number nine spot, but our other two picks didn't make the list. It might show a disconnect between mass appeal and niche gaming as Bastion and The Wor…


Top 3 iOS Games for August 2012

Toplist By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Top 3 iOS Games for August 2012

Bastion (Warner Bros. Supergiant Games) $4.99 iPad OnlyIt's almost unfair that the iPad gets all the fun when it comes to Supergiant Games and Warner Bros. release of Bastion for the iOS platform, especially when it manages to feel so 'at home' thanks to its unique control method. Despite the lack of challenge in beating down enemy after enemy in this brawler, you'll keep coming back for more to learn the tale of 'the kid' and the world he inhabits. A real gem for iPad owners to enjoy. The World Ends With You: Solo Remix (SQUARE ENIX) $17.99/$19.99Balk at the price if you will, but aside from finding a copy on the Nintendo DS (which is - arguably - the 'better' release) for signif…

iPhone 5 'Leaked' Advert (Rumor)

We're just shy of Apple's full announcement of the iPhone 5 and it seems a leak has sprung... not that we're calling this video legitimate, but it walks the walk, so we're not complaining! The fingerprint scanner has me kind of excited, so it's fingers-crossed that we see this hit the final version.…


Super Hexagon Review

Review Terry Cavanagh By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Super Hexagon Review

Sometimes the simplest titles can be the hardest to review. When there's depth, it can take a large paragraph or two to explain the mechanics at play, but on the opposite end, you may be clambering for anything to fill space. If it hasn't been given away yet, Super Hexagon by Terry Cavanagh of VVVVVV fame is a very simple game. One shouldn't take that as reason to overlook this title however, for we have a word for when simplicity meets quality, and that word is elegance. At the menu…

HUEBRIX Review

HUEBRIX Review

Upon loading up Huebrix, I was instantly reminded of one of the great underrated puzzle games of the App Store, Pathpix. In both games you have to drag a color over a predetermined number of squares on a grid to fill in the entirety of the level. While in Pathpix, this presented you with a completed image and a clever quote, Huebrix rewards you by having your color trails turn into sentient worm creatures that slither off the screen, escaping your perception. Of course that's not the o…

The Last Driver Review

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

It seems that at the same time the world is beset by zombie apocalypse, alien invasion, and nuclear annihilation (which was obviously triggered to combat the first two horrors). Despite all this, there are still survivors, and some of them have cars. You might be the only one with a working car however. The game is called The Last Driver after all. Fans of flash games will recognize the design here, as it's quite popular. Play the game, die rather quickly, use your coins to upgrade yo…

Dragon Island Blue Review

Review NTT Resonant Inc. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Dragon Island Blue Review

With dragons thought to be an extinct species, and you just happening to find a dragon egg next to your village, a grand adventure begins. When first loading up Dragon Island Blue, it wasn't set in stone what type of game we were expecting to play, but what unfurled is a mix between an old school JRPG and a mix between Pokemon and Monster Hunter. The game begins with you choosing what element of dragon you've found out of the four elements of water, fire, air, and earth. From here you…
