ZENONIA® 4 Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
ZENONIA® 4 Review

For those who have followed the Zenonia series from GAMEVIL, the best that could be said of each one is that they have learned from their previous iterations, tweaking and adding tiny features to remain competitive in the KRPG scene. Zenonia 4 represents a shift from this trend as it feels more like a broad summary of the previous titles while taking the game in a new direction by handing out the game for free. With this price-point comes some obvious changes, the largest being the sc…

Wind-up Knight Review

Review Robot Invader By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Wind-up Knight Review

Sometimes a developer can get so caught up in an idea that they'll let slide something as fundamental as ensuring the gameplay remains engaging just to keep a concept on board. Wind-up Knight by Robot Invader could very well have slipped in to this trap thanks to its clockwork protagonist, but not only does the idea make for a charming theme, it also makes for a compelling platformer. Born from the same school of thought that spawned titles like BIT.TRIP RUNNER, the clockwork knight y…

Foodie The Bug Review

Foodie The Bug Review

Foodie plans to travel the world. To make sure his energy levels are up he needs to constantly be snacking on multicolored jelly beans. With plenty of power-ups to boost him along and increase his intake, and an upgrade system to improve his abilities, can you help him reach his goal (which resides at the end of each level)? Upon first glance this looks like another slingshot physics game, but the flinging is only for launch. Once in the air Foodie hovers along with the iPhone being u…

Rockstar Discount Grand Theft Auto Titles On iPhone

Rockstar Discount Grand Theft Auto Titles On iPhone

Rockstar Games, developers of the Grand Theft Auto series, are discounting their iPhone releases as a Christmas gift to gamers. That means you can pick up the open-world classic Grand Theft Auto III, which we awarded a perfect 5/5 in our review last week, for a mere $2.99. While GTA3 was originally released on the PS2, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars was developed especially for portable devices. It, too, picked up 5/5 in our review, and it's currently available for $5.99. Finally, Rockstar's music creation app Beaterator is also available at a reduced price. Co-produced by the rapper Timbaland, this fancy bit of software is available for $1.99. Rockstar fans have until 29th December to…


Venture Towns Review

Review Kairosoft Co.,Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
Venture Towns Review

When playing a Kairosoft game, it's easy to see the influence of the sim games that have come before, especially Will Wright's Simcity. Venture Towns feels very close to Simcity, just with more of a personal focus... and don't get us wrong, this isn't a bad thing at all. Instead of just building a city, you're behind the reins of a mega-conglomerate, creating a community for its employees to work, live, and prosper. Through building vacant lots, shops, amusements, and offices to find…

Trenches II Review

Review Electronic Arts By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
Trenches II Review

It's been almost two years since the original Trenches was released on the iPhone and both fans of the original and of head-to-head castle defense games should be happy with what's on offer here. It's the great war, and taking control of either the British, German, or French forces, it's up your superior intelligence as a battlefield general to make sure your troops gain ground and win the conflict in your favor. If you've played the original you'll be right at home with the gameplay.…

Snoticles Review

Review [adult swim] By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
Snoticles Review

Be honest, unless you're a young boy, you probably aren't going to be enticed by four blobs of snot called the Snoticles. We here at AppSpy don't blame you as we were pretty apprehensive loading up this title, despite it being from Adult Swim and the great track record of quality games they've had this year. Boy were we wrong. While it won't set the world on fire, Snoticles is a solid and fun physics puzzle experience. Zit, Dread, Spark, and Snot are the Snoticles and they're here to…

Dungeon Hunter 3 Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Dungeon Hunter 3 Review

As a life-long gamer, sometimes it's hard to separate expectations of what a game should be from what a game can be. Allow me to clarify: Just because I expect a game to work a certain way, doesn't mean it should or indeed that it's the best way. With that said, despite still having many positive aspects, Dungeon Hunter 3 by Gameloft is a dangerous example of how many could come to see 'gaming'. iOS gamers will remember Dungeon Hunter as one of the premier Dungeon-Crawling Action-RPGs…

LostWinds Review

LostWinds Review

It almost goes without saying, but there's a lot of overlap when it comes to Nintendo's touch and waggle interfaces on the DS and Wii, and Apple's iDevices - essentially anything that focuses primarily on the ability to swipe as a control system is ripe for recreation on touch devices. English developer Frontier Developments introduced themselves on the Wii platform with LostWinds and thanks to its simple, yet clever style of control, iOS gamers can also experience this charming title…

Top-Notch Puzzler Aqueduct Updated With New Levels. Some Free, Some Not.

The Kieffer Bros's puzzler Aqueduct has been updated, adding new level packs to the game. One of these packs is free, while two more are available as in-app purchases. Aqueduct, which we awarded a strong 4/5 in our review last year, has you playing plumber as you work to restore the flow of water to an abstract aqueduct. The first level pack, called the Butterfly Chapter, is aimed at novice players, and is free as part of the update. The Rooster and Snake Chapters, meanwhile, are slightly more advanced, and are available as in-app purchases, priced at 99c each. All three level packs feature Game Center achievements for you to unlock, too. Also available for purchase is the Master Key, wh…


Ice Rage Review

Review Mountain Sheep By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Ice Rage Review

An often ignored aspect of portable gaming is the opportunity to involve other people directly in the game you're playing. This doesn't always go smoothly and 'multiplayer' modes involving 'passing' the device can feel incredibly clunky. As such, the iOS multi-touch feature created an opportunity for more than one person to play a game at the same time and Mountain Sheep's (Bike Baron, Death Rally, Minigore) latest release Ice Rage tries to cash in on this style of play. At its core I…

Time Ducks Review

Review Tough Guy Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
Time Ducks Review

There are two ways to approach a game like Time Ducks by Tough Guy Studios. One is to simply say "it's Frogger, combined with Flight Control after a heavy session of drinking in the Hot Tub Time Machine" and just leave it at that... I'll even pat you on the bottom as you scamper away to your room to enjoy it. The other is to put on a legitimate reviewers hat and wait for the inevitable gaming coma that comes when you finish a round, not quite knowing what happened, but knowing you did…

SilverTree Media’s Dreamy Shooter Sleepy Jack Arrives On iPhone

Sleepy Jack, the latest game from the developers of the acclaimed platformer Cordy, is now available for the iPhone. Previously exclusive to Sony Ericsson's Xperia Play, Sleepy Jack sees you control the eponymous lad in a journey through his toddler subconscious. As you fly through Jack's dreams and battle the twisted inhabitants of his bedroom toy box, you're armed with a toy ray gun to shoot down his nightmares. It's a surreal shooter of sorts, then, and now that it's arrived on the iPhone, there's support for both Game Center and OpenFeint included to handle your achievements. Sleepy Jack is available from the App Store for the discounted price of 99c. It's a limited-time offer, so a…


The Adventures of Tintin™ - The Game Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 7 months ago
The Adventures of Tintin™ - The Game Review

During the hottest of the long summer days at high school, one of the best ways to beat the heat was to score a spot somewhere in the air-conditioned library and while the time away with a humorous novel or more rarely, a graphic novel. New printed editions of Hergé's Tintin series were some of the most prized acquisitions and soon I'll be able to relive the same experience as I beat the seasonal heat while enjoying Tintin in the cinemas. The release of Gameloft's tie-in game,…
