Spy vs Spy Review

Review Robots and Pencils Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Spy vs Spy Review

Spy vs Spy is the kind of retro game that was always bound to have a sequel on the iOS platform in one form or another. First Star Software's 1984 classic formula has already been aped on the App Store, but thanks to Robots and Pencils, the original game in all its glory (as well as all new levels) are now available for the iPhone and iPad alike. You, as well as your rival spy, have entered an embassy and your goal is to escape with all of the items in the level, hindering or temporar…

Moops Review

Review Moops Games Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Moops Review

Now I certainly can't be the only one who upon hearing this game's name thought back to a certain Seinfeld episode involving a boy in a bubble and a game of Trivial Pursuit. Funnily enough, it has nothing to do with that whatsoever. No, it seems the town of Moopville is under siege by pesky critters, and in a last ditch effort to rid themselves of this menace, have hired Flunk and Dunk, two exterminators to make sure the job gets done. What follows is an interesting blend of action adv…

Follow The Rabbit Review

Follow The Rabbit Review

Chilean developer GaMaGa have been kicking around since 2009, creating quirky games for browsers and more recently for mobile devices. Teaming up with Armor Games, the studio has re-purposed their old title 'Kermix' for touch screens and the end result is a game that is infuriatingly challenging, but oh so rewarding when you solve its puzzles. Instead of rolling a cube around the screen one block at a time, players now take control of a strange block-like monster that is chasing down…

Traffic Panic London Review

Review Neon Play By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Traffic Panic London Review

Not having traveled yet to England, I do have to wonder how bad the traffic really is. I mean someone has gone and made a game where you control traffic light switches to create order and shuffle through as many cars as possible unharmed, but if a crash does happen, well then there's as much mayhem as your little tapping fingers and heart could ever desire. It's very rare that a game comes along where its lose state is inherently more enjoyable than the game itself, but that's exactly…

Puzzle birds Review

Review Smart Studio By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Puzzle birds Review

In the wake of the success of a game like Angry Birds, there will be two camps of imitators when it comes to game releases. One camp will take the game mechanics and add their own twist on it, and followers of the app store knows that when a game hits it big, we see plenty of these for years to come. The second camp takes the presentation or general theme of a game and uses the similarity to its advantage. That's what Puzzle Birds does. It calls you over and says, “Psst, hey budd…

App Wrap up (Weekend Edition, 23rd July 2012)

Wrapup By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
App Wrap up (Weekend Edition, 23rd July 2012)

Time for another App Wrap Up segment. What better way to start off the week than with checking some games that may or may not have some merit to them. As usual, we have not played these titles, but somthing about them struck us as potentially interesting so now we relay this information to you. If you do have a play of any of these, tell us what you think in the comments! Traintiles (Mobiteos) Kind of like Pipe Dream with train tracks. Not only do you have to guide the trains to the exit by manipulating the tracks, but you have to stop them ramming into each other as well. Also it's lucky that fast forward button is in the corner as once the puzzle is solved, the last thing a player…


Billy the Painter Review

Review Lipasto Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Billy the Painter Review

Painting must have been a lot different in the 20s and 30s. If Billy the Painter has taught me anything, it's that painting is as easy as splotting down a dab of color, and watching it expand until the area you were painting has been covered completely. Of course a game element has to be introduced, so if the paint touches the edges and blends with the areas already painted, a life is lost. What? You're telling me that paint doesn't work that way? Ah well, it still makes for a simple a…

Sly Fox Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Sly Fox Review

Before we jump in to the review I'll let you in on a trade-secret of the reviewers at AppSpy. If a game we play generally defies conventional genres, we know we're going to have a good time reviewing the game. These unique ideas are generally applauded, whether or not they manage to succeed, and so, while Sly Fox by Black Fox Studios has some serious teething problems, it was worth the play just to see something different. Catching chickens to nom on isn't an easy thing for a fox, esp…

Abstract Racer 'Just Rush' Available July 23rd

Abstract Racer 'Just Rush' Available July 23rd

When first watching the trailer for Just Rush, it looks kitchy with its penguin on the menu screen. Then it looks shoddy as the globe is spinning through the different seasons. Once the actual gameplay starts though... well it grabbed my attention. It comes off as Sonic the Hedgehog in an abstract cel shaded visual style, using both tilting the iPhone and touching the screen to control. Have a look for yourselves. The game is due out on Monday, July 23rd.…


The Dark Knight Rises Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
The Dark Knight Rises Review

If you haven't seen the latest in Nolan's series of Batman films, then be assured that we'll steer away from any spoilers here in the review. While Gameloft's tie-in game only tangentially follows the film narrative, it attempts to hit the main beats and as such it's a bit of a minefield for those yet to visit the cinema. The second concern we'll address is more or less the elephant in the room - the recent release of The Amazing Spider-Man gave us more than enough reason to be worrie…

Fieldrunners 2 Review

Review Subatomic Studios, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Fieldrunners 2 Review

When Fieldrunners by Subatomic Studios first launched, AppSpy wasn't even up and running. However, it was one of the very first to be reviewed and with good reason - Fieldrunners came to define the tower defense genre for touch devices, combining an open-layout system and grueling challenges that required players to design their mazes carefully to survive as long as possible. Almost four years in the making, the sequel finally hits, but with plenty of regular updates to the original a…

Super Knights Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Super Knights Review

Frequenters of our site may have come to recognize my proclivity for puns. With that being said, based on name alone Knights of the Round Cable sounded like a game to look forward to playing. Three hundred and sixty degree swinging in order to collect gems and fling around stages like a knighted pinball? What's not to love? Will the relationship even last past the engagement? Let's stop with the horrid metaphors and find out! The game starts with your knight falling from the sky befor…

Dance Fever Review

Review Digital Kickers By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Dance Fever Review

Rhythm games have always been at a disadvantage on the iPhone. While home consoles allow a player to live out their rock and roll fantasies with Rock Band, or dance up a storm with DDR, the swipe and tap inputs of the mobile device just can't compete with these unique control methods. That's not to say rhythm games haven't been enjoyable on the iPhone (or other handheld devices), it's just that you really need to design a simple and elegant system to allow the player to interact with t…

Astronaut Spacewalk Review

Review Jorge Hernandez By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Astronaut Spacewalk Review

While fascination with space has waned in the popular consciousness for a while, who can say they've never fantasized about being an astronaut? Being able to either jump around on the moon, or simply to spacewalk amongst the stars, with our big blue planet orbiting within your vision. Astronaut Spacewalk fulfills this fantasy by immersing you visually and aurally in the suit of an astronaut as you use your propulsion system to move along satellites and space stations. It's an im…
