Reckless Racing 2 Speeding Onto the iPhone Track In December

Reckless Racing 2 Speeding Onto the iPhone Track In December

I have yet to meet a person who dislikes Reckless Racing on iPhone. I have yet to meet a person who dislikes Lionel Messi, either. But that’s neither here, nor there. What IS important, though, is that the sequel to top-down driving sim Reckless Racing (Reckless Getaway is more a spin-off than a sequel, fact fans) will be accelerating onto the App Store pretty darn soon. Polarbit have announced that Reckless Racing 2 should be out in time for Xmas, so start updating your Christmas list forthwith. In this much-anticipated follow-up, Polarbit have tuned up the Reckless Racing engine with longer circuits, a single-player campaign, and improved artwork. While you’re counting dow…

Grab Jetpack Joyride For Free On App Store Facebook Page

Remember when id Software ran that Facebook promotion whereby RAGE HD on iPhone would go free if 100,000 peeps 'Liked' the studio's page? Well, Aussie developers Halfbrick have gone one better. If you should happen to be out social networking this afternoon, why not put that webcam down and pop across to the official App Store page. For there, you will discover riches beyond your wildest dreams. Or more accurately, Halfbrick's phenomenal endless-flying game Jetpack Joyride ready to be downloaded for absolutely zip. The star of Halfbrick's one-touch wonder, Barry Steakfries, by the way, was recently joined by Honest Phil in a major update - presumably, Barry was feeling lonely. Jetpack J…


Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation Review

If I could digress for a moment before stepping in to this review, there are times at which I wonder if parroting what already exists on larger consoles is really the way forward for iOS. While I agree that in many cases we'd otherwise not see games like this on an iDevice, at times it's hard not to feel like being a hyena tearing at the shreds of a carcass. In this way a game can feel disappointing even despite being, relatively speaking, amazing for the platform it's on. With that s…

Retro Shooter Hypership Out of Control Now Hurtling Through Space For Free

News By Anthony Usher, 2 years, 9 months ago
Retro Shooter Hypership Out of Control Now Hurtling Through Space For Free

You can now grab Fun Infused Games's retro-themed space shooter Hypership Out of Control and head into space without having to spend a penny. This is all thanks to a (presumably) limited-time sale that has seen its 99c price tag removed and tossed into a virtual bin. In Hypership Out of Control, you just happen to be the pilot of a constantly accelerating starship, which is suffering from faulty brakes. Your job, then, is to steer your careering craft around asteroids, coloured blocks, space mines, and other deadly hazards. Stay alive, basically. Oh, and rack up those high scores. Apple's social gaming network Game Center is on board with a bunch of leaderboards, which provide both long…


Galactic Phantasy Review

Galactic Phantasy Review

When you first look at a game like Galaxy Pirate Adventure by Sunfish Studio Limited, it's hard not to be misled and think you're in for a Privateer-like experience set in a pirate-infested universe. The first hint is in the game's description as it clearly calls itself a 'full 3D RPG', which is literally exactly what it is. You play as the Prince of Pirates, however you've been cast out in to the 'waters' by your father (the 'King' of Pirates if you're wondering) to adventure and gro…

Miniclip's Year One Library Of Games Racks Up 50 Million Downloads

Flash games specialists Miniclip can safely call their move into mobile gaming a success, with its year one library of iOS titles amassing more than 50 million downloads. Some of these games - which include iStunt 2 - Snowboard, Gravity Guy, and Fragger - even managed to attract one million downloads per day during their hottest period, thanks in no small part to their presence at the top of the US App Store's free releases chart. Sergio Varanda, Miniclip's mobile head, had this to say about Miniclip's maiden year on the mobile scene: We're simply blown away with the success we've achieved in such a short time with our new mobile division. The team we've assembled is world class and will…


Ghost Chicken Review

Review Blue Frog Gaming By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Ghost Chicken Review

You know, it's a good thing that the rooster you control in Ghost Chicken is deceased, otherwise the sound effects associated with the neck stretching might be a little more grotesque. This is a game made to cash in on Halloween around the corner however, so it might not have been too out of place. Regardless, even though you're a ghost chicken, you still have hunger, so it's time to stretch out underground, feasting on all the corn and bugs you can find. The goal of each level is to…

Turtle Slide™ Review

Review Voony Games GmbH By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Turtle Slide™ Review

Style versus substance. As reviewers and gamers, substance usually wins the battle. No matter how beautiful the graphics or amazing the sound, a shallow gameplay experience will wear out its welcome quickly. That's not to say these experiences are altogether bad, it's just you need to know what you're getting yourself into. Turtle Slide is an endless runner, or an endless slider as would be the case in this instance. As a turtle on an ice world, you need to jump, collect coins, and do…

Crazy Escape Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Crazy Escape Review

Wolves like to eat sheep. From folk tales to Warner Bros. Cartoons, this has been popularized through western culture. One thing that has been omitted from these tales however is the Penguins that drive up in jeeps to rescue the sheep from their lupine oppressors. That is the basis of Crazy Escape. You control these jeep driving penguins. Can you rescue the sheep, capture all three stars and do so while using as little petrol as possible? It can certainly be a challenge. Gameplay is a…

Bike Baron Review

Review Mountain Sheep By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Bike Baron Review

Bike Baron by Qwiboo and Mountain Sheep is not the first to strap a happy-go-lucky stunt driver in to a vehicle and point them towards a lethal combination of ramps and explosives, nor will it be the last. What it lacks in original concept it makes up for with sheer polished gameplay and design, going so far as to also include the iOS community in the process of level creation. If you're looking for a storyline, you're sorely out of luck as the Bike Baron is simply a daredevil without…

Robo5 Review

Robo5 Review

Robo wakes up in an unknown lab not knowing who he is or why he's there. He sets his plans on escape. How this is accomplished is climbing towers of blocks to reach an exit, all the while refreshing your battery. Moving crates and hanging on the edge of them for dear life is exhausting work after all. Yup, what we have here is a good old fashioned box puzzle game that is a little reminiscent of the console game Catherine. Tapping on a block will move Robo to it. Dragging your finger w…

Disney's Where's My Water? Receives Fresh Chapter With 20 New Levels

Disney's Where's My Water? Receives Fresh Chapter With 20 New Levels

'Where's my wallet?' 'Where's my car?' 'Where's my mobile?' These are all questions you'll probably ask yourself at least once a week. If you're lucky. 'Where's My Water?', meanwhile, is an issue that's only just arisen in my household. The reason? It's more addictive than jellybeans. Disney's iPhone physics-puzzler Where's My Water stars Swampy the Alligator, an eccentric reptile with a hygiene obsession and a set of faulty bath pipes. To help Swampy bathe in peace, comfort, and unpolluted water, you'll have to guide 'his' aqua through 100 levels filled with algae, triggers, and traps. Make that 120, actually. That's because the creators of Where's My Water? have issued the next chapte…


Worms Crazy Golf Review

Review Team17 Software Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Worms Crazy Golf Review

Worms has made an appearance on the iPhone a couple times now with varying success, but we here at AppSpy have to admit this title caught us off guard. Worms...golf? Who thought of this and now that the idea has flourished into a full blown release, can such an odd concept even work? Let's find out. Funnily enough the game plays very similarly to a classic round of Worms. You can select a pre-built worm or make one from the ground up, choosing clubs, voices and even hats (which is fas…

Hands-On Preview of Russian Dancing Men by SmashMouth Games

SmashMouth Games gives us a chance to check out their upcoming rhythm title based on the Weebl's-Stuff universe. Russian Dancing Men is scheduled for release on Thursday, 27th October, 2011. Transcript:Saying 'I like the videos at Weebl's-Stuff' is like saying 'I like funny things on the Internet' - it's hard not to have come across one or two of the cartoons with their catchy songs built around abstract humor. To be honest I hadn't even considered the idea of such a site ending up with an iOS title, but SmashMouth Games has not only turned the animations of Weebl in to a game, they've done it in an ingenious way. If you haven't heard of songs like Badgers, Magic…
