Squids Wild West Review

Review The Game Bakers By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Squids Wild West Review

The Game Bakers are crafty developers - while you could consider Squids Wild West a sequel of sorts, it acts more like an expansion to the first title, albeit jam-packed with content, new characters, mechanics and... well OK, it's a sequel, just without the usual tacked-on number. Carrying on from the end of Squids, Steev, Vahime, Sammo and the rest of the crew end up at Seawood and are trying to find more heroes in the quest to stop the black-ooze slowly infesting and changing the cr…

The Journey Down to Mobile Devices

The Journey Down to Mobile Devices

The Journey Down is a point and click adventure game that looks to have taken visual inspiration from Grim Fandango. The game is available now for PC, Mac, and Linux... but the reason we're mentioning it here is that developers SkyGoblin are porting it for iOS devices sometime soon. Have a look at the trailer here: As a fan of adventure games, this looks like a lot of fun. For those of you who don't want to wait, the game can be purchased from their website.

Centipede®: Origins Review

Review Atari By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Centipede®: Origins Review

Centipede: Origins by Atari celebrates the classic Arcade shooter's 20th anniversary of its release on home consoles. As to be expected, the war between Gnomes and Bugs is now modernized thanks to the inclusion of purchasable power-ups and weapons, but better still, players can now engage their enemies in all-new locations complete with new gameplay features to keep you on your toes. For those not familiar with the original, you play as a gnome, firing your puny arrows against the inc…

Asphalt 7: Heat Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Asphalt 7: Heat Review

It seems to be taking many small incremental changes, but the Asphalt series by Gameloft is slowly approaching something akin to the coin-swallowing racers that still dominate modern arcades. Gorgeous in its presentation, utterly unrealistic in its racing, but still challenging thanks to fierce AI opponents, Asphalt 7: Heat keeps things simple, but nails the mindless fun inherent in the genre. Each of the 15 eye-popping stages feature a range of hidden, and not so hidden short-cuts th…

Punch Quest Lets you Punch Things

Punch Quest Lets you Punch Things

Well one would expect as much from a game called Punch Quest. Being released sometime in the fall (or Spring for you southern hemisphere people, which i happen to be a part of), you punch things in a dungeon, and there's apparently an egg that turns you into a gnome, who then has to fight bees. It looks and sounds engaging from the trailer. Have a look for yourselves. It looks to have bit of score attack going on as well, what with the multiplier for punching things. It's also rocking the 8-bit presentation. We'll be keeping an eye on this one as information develops.…


Knights of the Round Cable unleashes website.

Knights of the Round Cable unleashes website.

Long time Appspy readers/watches as well as my friends should know how much i love wordplay. What a way to start off the week then with information on Chillingo and Focus Home Interactive's new game, Knights of the Round Cable. First shown off at E3, they've just released a trailer and their new website. It looks to combine a fun cartoon art style with a rope swinging mechanic that many games on the app store have used to good effect. Slated for a July release, this has the polish that we've come to expect from a publisher like Chillingo. Now we just have to see if the game itself is engaging.

Puzzle-Rocket Review

Review pixelZapp By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Puzzle-Rocket Review

Those poor sight seeing aliens. They're out and about in the universe enjoying themselves when they're hit upon by a meteor storm. It's time for damage control. Help guide the aliens to their rescue ships with the use of paddles that deflect, bounce, drip, and contain all manner of other strange properties as you navigate around the meteor fields. One of the most amusing things about Puzzle Rocket is also one of the most horrifying if you stop to think about it. The goal of each stage…

Astronot Review

Review Wade McGillis By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Astronot Review

One of the things that make the best games of the Metroid series such a joy to play after all these years isn't just the large map ripe for exploration, but also the sense of loneliness and danger the player feels when traversing a hostile, alien world. You are the lone survivor of your ship after it has crashed on an uncharted planet. Can you stay alive long enough to possibly make it off it? Astronot uses a traditional on-screen button control scheme. There's a left and right button…

New Water Physics Puzzler Making a Splash on July 5th

Another physics based puzzle game starring a cute animal? You betcha! The App Store has no shortage of these, but hey, as long as they play well (and most of them do), it's all good. Here's the trailer... Rolling up the ramps looks especially fun. The developers are taking some extra time to polish up everything (which is always a good sign), so look for this to release on July 5th.…


Mad Acorn Review

Review APD Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Mad Acorn Review

[Mad Acorn was featured as the Mini-review for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 22nd of June, 2012] Despite my personal belief that Mad Acorn by APD deserves a much larger review, I can't begin to express just how unexpectedly perfect this title ended up feeling upon first playing it, so it's probably best I keep things short. The game, which is ostensibly a rhythm title, is the first in the developer's new TapTap Comix project, providing interactive artistic collaborations. Combining…

Friday News Wrap-Up 22 June 2012

Friday News Wrap-Up 22 June 2012

It's Friday; this is Andrew for AppSpy.com; and you can guess the rest - this is the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 22nd of June, 2012. On the Rainslick Precipice of Darkness 3 - 'Soon'I don't even know how we could have failed to report this sooner, especially when Zeboyd Games, the masterminds behind Cthulu Saves the World are behind the development of the third installment of Penny Arcade's On The Rainslick Precipice of Darkness series. Somehow we forgot to mention that not only is the third title making its way to iOS and Android devices, but is expected to be released 'soon' after the game's initial release on the 25th of July. By 'soon' we mean it could be another year of devel…


Blindside - an Audio Only Adventure

Blindside - an Audio Only Adventure

Recording games that utilize the gyros in Apple's devices can be difficult enough (it's for this reason we've not reviewed any alternate or augmented reality games), but if a game comes out that does something interesting enough with a unique control scheme, it deserves a shoutout, and Blindside definitely falls under this category. Now Blindside has already been out for a little while but it's due to the recent update that we here at Appspy caught wind of it. What we're dealing with here is an audio only adventure game. How would such a thing work? Well let the developers' game introduction video explain it. Retailing for $2.99 in the appstore, this promises to offer a very imme…


Zombie Quest - Mastermind the hexes! Review

Review Pavel Tarabrin By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 6 months ago
Zombie Quest - Mastermind the hexes! Review

We've seen a lot of games involving zombies in our tenure as reviewers, and most of them are pretty much the same. After all, the zombie is a great opponent in an action game. They're slow, there's a lot of them, and most importantly, they're not human. It's been a while since there's been a unique take on zombies in the app store, but Zombie Quest – Mastermind the Hexes most definitely fits that description. More a monster game than a zombie game, but what we have here is a stra…

The Ominous Countdown of Industry Veterans

Johannes Vuorinen & Juhana Myllys are two industry professionals who have decided to go indie and form Frogmind Games. Both were employed by Redlynx with Johannes being the in-game editor programmer for Trails: Evolution and Juhana the lead artist of Motoheroz. There is a countdown timer on their new website, and when it reaches zero on July 2nd, they will unveil their first project. The only hint they've given on it is that if you like the atmosphere of games like LIMBO and Machinarium, you'll love what they're creating. Ominous indeed! We'll let you know more on July 2nd.

Fish Heroes Review

Review Craneballs s.r.o. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Fish Heroes Review

In Fish Heroes, the fish of the world are being captured and canned en masse by the shark Mafia and it's up to a crack team of heroes to literally topple their organization. What? Did you expect anything more rational from a game modeled from the likes of Angry Birds? The physics-based flinger has been once again thrown in to the third dimension, though unlike the recent Catapult King, players are given far more control over the direction and angle of their shot as the entire level ca…
