NFL Flick Quarterback Review

Review Full Fat By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
NFL Flick Quarterback Review

It has only been three months or so since Full Fat made their last appearance on the App Store and once again the developer has expanded the 'Flick' series to include all 32 official teams in their new title, NFL Flick Quarterback. While the idea was first introduced in Flick Golf Extreme!, Flick QB requires players to judge their flicks to not only accurately reach their goal, but also to predict where the receiver is running to in order to score bonuses. To make things even harder t…

Über-Popular Facebook Shooter UberStrike Being Ported To iOS In 2012

CEO of Cmune Ludovic Bodin announced today at the Social Gaming and Virtual Goods World conference that Unity3D shooter UberStrike, previously only playable on Facebook, will be arriving on iOS in the near future. With its 1 million+ players gladly indulging in the simple thrill of charging around a tropical island and gibbing enemies like it’s 1995, UberStrike has become one of the most popular free-to-play games on The Social Network. Already ported to the Mac App Store with chart-topping results, Bodin believes it’s time for the FPS to make its mobile debut. An iPad version of the game has already been spotted in Cmune’s official forums, so it’s clear iOS develo…


Zen Pinball Review

Review ZEN Studios Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Zen Pinball Review

I'm seriously having flashbacks here - as a child of the 80s and a self-admitted video game nerd, the local video arcades were a veritable haven for me. While pinball games were never my forte, there was a distinct magical allure that came from the newer generation of fancy and complex titles that tried to capture the essence of a franchise, typified by the introduction of Midway's classic Addams Family pinball table. These memories are distinct and powerful, which is why I was surpris…

Major Mayhem Review

Review [adult swim] By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 8 months ago
Major Mayhem Review

Ninjas are attacking and they've taken your girlfriend somehow. That's the premise of Adult Swim's latest foray into mobile gaming. As Major Mayhem, you need to travel deep into the heart of enemy territory and slaughter hundreds of ninjas mercilessly to make the world safer... and for booty. The game has sort of a Time Crisis / Operation Wolf vibe to it. You run from cover to cover and you pop out to mow down ninjas. Your gun is fired by tapping the screen where you want to shoot, an…

The Bard's Tale Review

Review inXile Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
The Bard's Tale Review

There's a song and a dance to be made about the release of inXile Entertainment's classic title The Bard's Tale, but then we'd have to talk about puns and that's Dave's forte, not mine. So, over seven years since its release on home consoles and eventually the PC, we iOS gamers get a chance to check out this 3D Action-RPG title. Weighing in at around 1.7 GB installed on your iDevice, you'd hope that the game was uncut, and thankfully (or is that regrettably) it is. What this means for…

W.E.L.D.E.R. Review

Review Ayopa Games LLC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 8 months ago
W.E.L.D.E.R. Review

Being a welder of words admittedly sounds rather poncy. However, there's no better explanation for the task set upon you in... 'W.E.L.D.E.R.'. Luckily swapping tiles to create words is a lot of fun, and thanks to some interesting little gameplay additions, a rather unique experience among word and puzzle games is to be had. The core of the game is a mix of Bejeweled and Scrabble. Tiles can be swapped horizontally, vertically, and diagonally to create words of four letters or more. The…

To-Fu: The Trials of Chi Is Now Free, But It's Covered In Adverts

To-Fu: The Trials of Chi Is Now Free, But It's Covered In Adverts

To-Fu: The Trials of Chi has received an update which makes the game free to download. Unfortunately, that's not all the update delivers. In version 1.10.0 of To-Fu: The Trials of Chi, you will now encounter some of those intrusive in-app advertisements - even those punters who had shelled out hard cash for the game. Nevertheless, it's a good deal for newcomers, as the game and all of its in-app purchases are now free of charge. In addition, To-Fu: The Trials of Chi's developers HotGen have introduced five brand-new trials for you to play through. Tasking you with bouncing your bandana-clad bean curd through increasingly spiky levels, To-Fu: The Trials of Chi was awarded a very respectab…


Don't Run With a Plasma Sword Review

Review XperimentalZ Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Don't Run With a Plasma Sword Review

By now you're either a fan or a hater of the endless side-scrolling platformers that inevitably crop up each week on the App Store. While some innovate in varying degrees, there's a limit to how often one can take on the same challenge over and over with little motivation. Don't Run With a Plasma Sword by XperimentalZ Games doesn't try to revolutionize the genre, but instead it tries to address the base concerns of the genre with mixed success. Of note, simply jumping in to an endless…

Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies Review

Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies Review

For those yet to try out Call of Duty's interestingly themed co-op addition to their main series, the 'Zombies' titles represent a fun and frantic distraction from an otherwise serious first person shooter. Its initial conversion to the iOS platform was far from well received and its 'sequel' was appreciated even less, but is the third time a charm for Activision's Black Ops Zombies? The game tasks you with the seemingly impossible challenge of defending a map from its unholy attacker…

Space Tripper Review

Review True Axis By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Space Tripper Review

The shoot em up is a pretty standard genre in video gaming nowadays. Indeed it takes something special to get noticed. Is Space Tripper worth noticing? Let us find out. Your ship is controlled by tilting. Weapon fire is automatic, and tapping the screen on the left and the right side will accomplish different things. The left side will change your weapon from a single fire option to a triple spray. The spray covers more area but is weaker. Both can be upgraded by picking up power upgr…

Square Enix’s Chaos Rings Omega Updated With New Level Cap, New Weapons

Square Enix’s Chaos Rings Omega Updated With New Level Cap, New Weapons

Square Enix have just rolled out another update to their iPhone RPG Chaos Rings Omega, increasing the level cap, adding new weapons, and introducing a new boss to get trounced by. After a similar update for this 5/5 AppSpy favourite in June, the game's level cap has now reached a mighty 150, meaning newcomers will be battling for quite some time before maxing out their stats. Old hands can face off against fierce level 150+ foes in the hope of looting a shiny new weapon from their defeated bodies. There's also a new hidden boss to face off against - if you can find him. Two new Piu-Piu collections and new dungeon treasure chests round out the update, which is available to download now.…


Box Cat Review

Review Rusty Moyher By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Box Cat Review

Upon first play, Box Cat seems a little bit of a revenge tale. Cats have been the bane of the night-time motorist for a long while, and sadly many are accidentally hit. Box Cat is here to turn the tables by smashing into as many cars as possible, causing chain reactions resulting in pileups, and making trucks explode. Each level starts on a city street. As Box Cat (or any of his unlockable cat cousins) you move back and forth, slamming into cars and sending them spinning out of contro…

Infinity Blade II Review

Infinity Blade II Review

Not only did the original Infinity Blade introduce players to a new and cunningly effective combat system for touchscreen-based devices, it pushed the boundaries of what was possible on the iOS platform both visually and conceptually. Its iterative style of gameplay was (for some) simply repetitive, but more than anything else it has opened the doors up to a great story concept, something not lost at all in Chair Entertainment's sequel, Infinity Blade II. While those who played the or…

Top 3 iOS Games for November 2011

Transcript: Despite November's reputation as a major release month for the wider sphere of gaming, iOS gamers have had somewhat slimmer pickings when it comes to high quality titles.

This is where AppSpy's list of the Top 3 iPhone games for November excels as all the games offer bite-sized gameplay and fun while still taking the time to offer something better than your average arcade…
