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

News By James Nouch, 2 years, 9 months ago
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, 9 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

Toplist By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
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. Then again, if you happen to have a decent PC or any of the major consoles you're bound to be catching up on what's on offer there instead of gaming on your iOS device of choice, but that doesn't mean there aren't some spare moments in the day that could be filled up with something more entertaining. 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…


Superman Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Superman Review

GASP! What's this? A Superman game that isn't an abysmal failure of form and function? We here at Appspy are as surprised as you are! Let's face it, the man of steel has not had good representation in the videogame arena over the years. It's a shame too, as with a character who possesses such power and speed, there could be some great gameplay possibilities. While not delivering the answer to the prayers of those looking for the Superman equivalent of an Arkham Asylum, DC Comics have c…

These Robotic Hearts of Mine Review

Review Alan Hazelden By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
These Robotic Hearts of Mine Review

When someone says to me "I've just played an Indie game." I must admit my brain almost immediately engages in to its all-too-commonly used 'snark' mode and I wonder what pixel-art coated, chip-tune blaring, low-resolution, and philosophical narrative they could be talking about. Truth be told, while many gamers may make fun of these 'experience' driven titles, they approach gaming as a media in a way that can result in a far deeper sense of satisfaction than simply breaking bricks with…

RPM: Gymkhana Racing Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
RPM: Gymkhana Racing Review

When it comes to sports and racing games, players usually fall into two camps. Do you prefer a simulation game style, or an arcade one? RPM falls in the latter category as it is focused primarily on drifting, and accomplishing many varied and strange tasks while drifting. The game is controlled from an overhead 3rd person view. Hitting the accelerator will propel your car forward but since the slightest shift in turn will begin the drifting that is at the center of the game, you need…

Sequel To Gibbets, the Life-Saving Puzzle Game For Flash, Is Coming To iOS

News By James Nouch, 2 years, 9 months ago
Sequel To Gibbets, the Life-Saving Puzzle Game For Flash, Is Coming To iOS

HeroCraft, the Russian publishers responsible for the popular Flash puzzler Gibbets, have announced that a sequel is in the works, and it's coming to iOS. Playing as an altruistic marksman in the original Gibbets game, you cut condemned men down from the gallows, using only your trusty bow. With a limited number of arrows and multiple convicts to save, each level requires careful thought as well as careful accuracy. Word from Russia, then, is that Gibbets 2 is in development, and that it will be landing on the iPhone sometime in the second quarter of next year. When it does eventually touch down on iOS, it'll boast 30 new levels of slightly morbid puzzling action. There's no word yet on…


Act of Fury: Kraine’s Revenge Review

Review Forge Reply By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Act of Fury: Kraine’s Revenge Review

In most bullet hell style shoot'em-ups you'd likely find yourself needing to analyze and memorize complex patterns as enemies and bosses spew forth orbs of death like a deadly fireworks display. Act of Fury: Kraine's Revenge by Forge Reply manages to forgo the usual slew of bullets, but is no less of a 'hell' as your character is similarly lacking in ranged firepower, because he IS the firepower. Kraine is been imbued with super-powers allowing him to generate a powerful and destructi…

Snoopy’s Street Fair Review

Snoopy’s Street Fair Review

I have to confess that I've somewhat wilfully ignored much of what is on TV for the last decade, that is to say, I own a TV, but much of what I watch is thanks to DVDs or the snippets I inevitably see now and then. As such I've lost touch on a pivotal annual classic that is the inevitable re-run of the Peanuts shows and movies. I go in to this review with the assumption that you have grown up with or know about this cartoon world to some degree. Beeline Interactive arguably succeeded…
