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

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

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…


Forever Drive Review

Forever Drive Review

Who doesn't love a nice drive? Perhaps driving forever would be a bit much, but with enough skill, that does indeed seem to be a possibility with this community content created racer. You start out in a generic car with a generic paint job and a generic license plate. At generic level one. As you play the game and gain points, you gain experience, and as you level up, new cars, paint modes, license plates, and build features are unlocked. These goodies can also be purchased in store (…

Review The Game Bakers By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Squids Review

One of the PR quotes on the app store page likens Squids by The Game Bakers to a melding of Angry Birds and Final Fantasy Tactics. It's right in the sense that you're using your finger to fling cute animals at their enemies under the guise of a tactical RPG system, but for those looking for the depth of a Final Fantasy Tactics, you're probably going to be disappointed. That's not to sell the game short however, as its novel approach and the way it eases into game concepts will please b…

Gem Keeper™ Review

While MMOs aren't their only bread and butter, NCsoft are certainly well known for their PC presence and when their attention swings around to the iOS it's hard not to take notice. Gem Keeper is their first swing at gaming on iDevices and much as you'd expect from a company with this much clout, it's a visually spectacular game to behold, but instead of an expected RPG they've gone for the safe bet of a tower defense game. Thankfully Gem Keeper isn't entirely lost in the melange of ti…

Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation Shooting Onto iPhone On 27th October

No smoke and mirrors this time, guys. (And no deranged clown puppet inviting you to play some kind of guessing game, either.) Gameloft have confirmed via Twitter that the next iteration of their first-person shooter series Modern Combat will explode onto iPhone on 27th October. In Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation, you and up to 11 of your frag-happy buddies can release all of your pent-up frustration across six maps and six game modes in an all-new campaign. Now, bearing in mind that both of Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation's predecessors received top marks from AppSpy, we're expecting great things from this upcoming sequel. We can't, unfortunately, tell you how much Modern Combat 3: Fallen…
