Turtle Slide™ Review

Review Voony Games GmbH By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 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, 10 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, 10 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, 10 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…


Whale Trail Review

Review ustwo™ By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Whale Trail Review

While I'd love to think I'm not the bitter old-soul that my friends sometimes consider me to be, I can't help but feel a bit sympathetic as I load up a game like Whale Trail by ustwo and grin like the Cheshire Cat for what seems like hours and think 'Oh... this is what smiling feels like?'. OK, OK, I'm not THAT grumpy, but the point remains that there's something positive to be said for a game that had me babbling like an incoherently excited 3 year old within minutes of having loaded…

iBomber Defense Developers Cobra Mobile Get Nominated For A Scottish BAFTA

Dundee-based developers Cobra Mobile have been nominated for a Scottish BAFTA 2011 Award, thanks to their popular tower defence hit iBomber Defense. First released for iOS - and subsequently ported to the Mac App Store - iBomber Defense earned a 4/5 at review. On the subject of the BAFTA recognition, Mark Ettle, Cobra Mobile's MD, said: iBomber Defense has been a massive critical and financial success for Cobra Mobile. The game has also become a gateway product and opened up all new hardware and software distribution platforms for the company to explore. It's always an honour to get an award nomination for any product you've created and a BAFTA nomination is one of the best. iBomber Def…

Gameloft Confirm Order & Chaos Online Accounts Have Been Hacked

Here's your AppSpy public service announcement for the week. In conversation with our sister site Pocket Gamer, French studio Gameloft have admitted that a number of Order & Chaos Online players have had their accounts hacked. Without wishing to sound too alarmist, no one knows for certain how the Gameloft Live servers have been breached and quite how many gamers have been caught up in this security breach. Order & Chaos Online, by the way, is Gameloft's iPhone homage to ultra-popular real-time MMORPGs like World of Warcraft. And as anyone who has ever played - or witnessed somebody in their close family play - one of these utterly absorbing and compelling adventure romps will te…


Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots Review

Review Halfbrick Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots Review

On almost any other day of the week I'd be happy to sympathize with the swathes of gamers who rally against movie tie-in titles, but every now and then a developer manages to make it work for them. Then again, it should be no surprise that Puss in Boots works with Fruit Ninja (he is a swordsman after all), but the real magic of Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots is in its new mode, 'Bandito'. Of course those who just want to slice fruit can get their fill in the classic mode dubbed 'Desperado…

Mage Gauntlet Review

Review Rocketcat Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Mage Gauntlet Review

When you've built up a reputation for being one of the best at creating a certain kind of game, it would seem like madness to completely throw it out the window and start on something entirely new. So, when rumors surfaced of Rocketcat Games starting work on an Action-RPG it was almost hard to believe. Despite their previous history of ninja-rope swinging time-trial games, Mage Gauntlet made its debut on the App Store. The game is, first and foremost, very self-aware of its nature and…

Mr.Fang Review

Mr.Fang Review

Mr. Fang is a puzzle game that will keep your fingers tapping the screen as you combo up four blocks of the same color. Classic mode has you completing objectives to fill up your bar before time runs out, puzzle mode has you clearing the screen, and time attack mode has you vying for rankings on a world leaderboard. But is it fun? The concept behind Mr. Fang is to create a giant square out of four blocks of the same color. Once this square is created, you can tap on it to get a huge p…

DNA Interactive Bringing Popular BBC Series Merlin To iPhone In Early 2012

DNA Interactive Bringing Popular BBC Series Merlin To iPhone In Early 2012

Despite the fact that games based on movies and TV shows are generally distinctly average, publisher DNA Interactive is bringing a spin-off of BBC series Merlin to the iPhone. Merlin, the Game - as it's cleverly named - will be an episodic point-and-click adventure that thrusts you into the role of the young wizard himself. You'll be embarking on a quest to aid both Arthur and Guinever, but what that quest entails is yet to be revealed. What we do know, however, is that you'll be doing a spot of puzzle solving and having a right good old chinwag. This, of course, isn't the first iPhone game to be adapted from a popular BBC IP, with Doctor Who: The Mazes of Time and Torchwood: Web of Lies…
