Tune Rider Review

Review H2indie LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Tune Rider Review

Like many people, music forms a large part of my life; something my eclectic collection of music ranging from 80s New Wave to modern Gangster Rap can attest to. As such I love it when a game lets me turn my music in to something visceral (such as in AudioSurf), which is why I had to give Tune Rider by H2indie a try. There aren't any real grandiose promises made by the developer outside of being able to ride along with your music. This honesty has in retrospect worked in the game's fav…

Cowboy Guns Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Cowboy Guns Review

Cowboy Guns by C2 Estudio and Chillingo is for all intents and purposes yet another attempt at trying to spin gold out of straw; insert one popular genre (Twin-stick Shooter), add a dash of a popular theme (Wild West) and see what happens. See now, that's the cynic in me talking - in reality what happened was far more interesting. Instead of the usual bland and lifeless endless gameplay, Cowboy Guns focuses heavily on a level-by-level action adventure story. It's an old tale - one of…

Relive Past Glories In Street Fighter II: The Collection On iPhone

Relive Past Glories In Street Fighter II: The Collection On iPhone

Jeeez, those animated Street Fighters just can't stay out of the news, innit. After Capcom karate kicked Street Fighter IV: Volt's price down to $4.99 last Friday and welcomed a pair of new combatants into the fray, Ryu and Ken are muscling in on the App Store market again. For many in the early '90s, Street Fighter II was the only reason they'd brave their local murky, fetid arcades. For many more, Street Fighter II lit the blue touch paper under the beat-'em-genre, taking them out of the shadows and into the mainstream for the first time. None of that necessarily matters any more, for you don't even have to leave the comfort of your bed to engage in a spot of 1-on-1 brawling, Street Fi…


Fruit Roll Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Fruit Roll Review

One thing about playing a lot of games is that you're always looking for new experiences. For instance, we here at AppSpy have never controlled a double jumping, shape shifting piece of fruit as it constantly rolls down a hill, collecting stars and obliterating random wildlife. Did the experience live up to the novelty of that previous sentence? Let's find out. Fruit Roll is a game of highscores. As you roll along you boost your score collecting stars and rolling into enemies. There i…

Tiny Invaders Review

Review Supergonk Ltd. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Tiny Invaders Review

Here's a scary thought. Imagine that the bacteria in your body was actually an invasion force of aliens looking to infect humanity one human at a time. Now imagine that you're actively helping them carry out their plans. That's the premise behind Tiny Invaders. It's like that animated sequence from the TV series of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, except a small dog is nowhere in sight. You infect each human from the ground up, which takes fifteen bite sized levels. In each level the…

Capcom Brawler Street Fighter IV: Volt Gets Two New Battlers and A Price Cut

Capcom Brawler Street Fighter IV: Volt Gets Two New Battlers and A Price Cut

Capcom have simultaneously dropped the price and upped the roster of its 5/5 App Store brawler Steet Fighter IV: Volt. The two newest burly bruisers to step into Capcom's deadly arena are film star Fei Long and martial artist Yun, taking the total number of playable characters up to an impressive 22. The Japanese studio has also made a bunch of improvements to the game's multiplayer modes, starting with a new Friend Request button. Tweaks to make sure there are no disruptions during wi-fi play and a new 'GoodFight' post-match praise option have also been added. More good news: you can now pick-up Street Fighter IV: Volt at a reduced price, albeit for a limited time. Punch your way throug…


AeroDrift Review

Review Alan Marghitola By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
AeroDrift Review

Time-trial racers can range from the most mundane or vehicular simulators to the most insane of concepts such as flipping gravity. jAggy Race by SevenOnly mashes the two ends of the spectrum, ending up with something that feels more like an arcade racer injected with some seriously whacky psychotropics and despite the handful of levels available you're unlikely to master this game any time soon. This is, simply put, because the game is not above changing the rules mid-race, often seve…

Run Fox Run Review

Review Icewire By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Run Fox Run Review

It's that kind of week isn't it? One moment you're wondering where all the endless titles have disappeared to and the next your swimming up to your neck in them. Thankfully, Run Fox Run by Icewire tries to distinguish itself by focusing on the gameplay instead of high-scores and while it's still a simple title it makes for a fun experience while it lasts. The story itself is mostly implied as a fox is startled by and eventually attracted to a strange warp-portal that sends the red fo…

GoatUp Review

Review Llamasoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
GoatUp Review

There exist in this world a whole host of games that you either 'get' or you 'don't. Often they border on artistic works, poking fun at or otherwise playing around with the conventions of gaming for its own agenda, but ultimately some sort of personal understanding or connection is needed to forgive the quirks these sorts of games create. In the grand scheme of Llamasoft's past work, GoatUp is perhaps the least challenging title to approach and that's saying a lot when you're playing…

Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack! Review

Review Devolver Digital By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack! Review

You have to admire a developer that can create a character so fearsome that it only takes a distant whisper of its tireless scream to send a shudder down your spine. Which, according to Croteam themselves, is kinda weird considering the Beheaded Kamikaze of Serious Sam fame has no head to scream with. Thankfully in the iOS outing of Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack! by Devolver Digital you get to control a Kamikaze instead of being its intended victim, just don't get too excited because yo…

Gameloft's Fast-Paced Street Racer Asphalt 6: Adrenaline Drops Down A Few Gears To Free

Gameloft's Fast-Paced Street Racer Asphalt 6: Adrenaline Drops Down A Few Gears To Free

Gameloft have slashed the price of its high-octane racer Asphalt 6: Adrenaline from $4.99 to completely free. The latest entry in the French publisher's street-racing franchise packs over 42 cars and bikes, which can be driven through the game's 11 racing leagues and 55 events. If you prefer destroying your friends to computer-controlled opponents, you can battle up to five of your buddies in both online and local multiplayer modes. And, when you've successfully beaten all available opposition, you can even take some time out, visit your garage, and explore your collection of high-powered beasts using your device's gyroscope. We gave the game a rather impressive 4/5 at review, so what th…


Halbrick's Jetpack Joyride Gets Updated With New Vehicles and Playable Character

Halbrick's Jetpack Joyride Gets Updated With New Vehicles and Playable Character

Australian developer Halfbrick's rather excellent Jetpack Joyride has been updated with some wacky new extras, as well as some almost mandatory bug fixes and tweaks. The foul-mouthed Barry Steakfries can now pilot two brand-new vehicles, including the ironically named Mr. Cuddles (a giant robot dragon), and the fruit jetpack. The latter is a nod to Halfbrick's smash hit slice-'em-up Fruit Ninja, and sprays the ground with fruit and juice as you speed past hazards. Barry is also joined by new character Honest Phil: an 'awesome Australian dude' based on Halfbrick's real-life CMO Phil Larsen. You can grab this 5/5 title from the App Store right now for just 99c.…


Flapcraft Review

Review Pixelmator Team By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Flapcraft Review

Here we are again, back on the high bluffs of a mountain, crazy contraption in hand and a death-wish in the heart as we push our viking in to the blue-yonder in an effort to fly further than ever before. No, we're not reviewing Vikings Can Fly! again, but rather we're taking the screws to Flapcraft by Pixelmator Team. Flapcraft follows the basic formula found in many 'flying' games, with the protagonist earning points that go towards the occasional upgrade that affects the speed, flig…
