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

Review supermono limited By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
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

Review NCSOFT By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
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…

Professor Layton's Son Solving Crimes On iPhone In Near Future

What's going on 'ere then?! Just days after Warner Bros's DS sleeper hit Scribblenauts transferred over to iPhone, a port of another famous Nintendo DS property is announced for Apple's mobile platform. According to TechCrunch, Nintendo's exclusivity agreement for Level-5's Professor Layton franchise has expired, meaning the latter are free to produce an iPhone version of their acclaimed puzzle-adventure series. Level-5 themselves revealed plans for the upcoming iPhone title Layton Brothers: Mystery Room in a press release on 15th October: ...this title will put a new spin on the Professor Layton universe with crime-scene mystery style gameplay starring the intuitive son of Hershel Layto…


FLIP RIDERS Review

Review POWapp By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
FLIP RIDERS Review

Editor Note (Nov 9, 2011): For some, Flip Riders was everything they wanted in a time-trial, hardcore moto-x style stunt game, but for us at AppSpy it presented a lot of frustrations that managed to pile upon themselves, resulting in a less than stellar first outing. However, in what is certainly a praiseworthy effort of retooling, Agimat has updated their game to not only separate the weaklings from the heroes (thanks to a new difficulty selection), the levels themselves have al…

Review Crescent Moon Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Siegecraft Review

For the sake of posterity and for those who arrive at this review well after it goes online, Siegecraft by Blowfish Studios and Crescent Moon Games arrived during an eventful week resulting in it almost floundering. This isn't because it was ignored, but rather because it was released just before iOS 5 and the iPhone 4S, both of which being the optimal requirements for playing this game. Performance patches have helped to smooth things out for fourth gen iDevices, but it's clear this…

Freemium Version Of 5-Star Virtual City Hits iPhone On 20th October

I think it's fair to say that living in a big city can be hazardous to one's health. If the noxious smog that envelops your bustling metropolis doesn't get you, then the OBnoxious white van drivers screeching around every blind corner probably will. But what if you could become chief city planner for a month and make sweeping changes to your municipality's transport and enterprise infrastructure at the drop of a hat? With G5 Entertainment's Virtual City Playground installed on your iPhone, that's precisely what you can do. This freemium city-building simulation goes live on the App Store this Thursday (20th October), and contains 10 exclusive landmarks, 68 unique decorations, and 87 ques…


Roll in the Hole Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Roll in the Hole Review

When you start playing a game titled Roll in the Hole, you expect two things. Rolling, and a hole to roll into. You'll be happy to know that this game delivers on both those fronts. You play Popo the fat Panda. A mean Gorilla has stolen all your ice cream and you must chase him down the only way you can, by rolling into oblivion. You would think that a game based around rolling would revolve around tilt controls, but funnily enough, Roll in the Hole uses the touch screen. The screen i…

RunDaLine - featuring the most athletic skunk on earth Review

Why would a skunk need to run away from anything? If anything, cartoons have taught us that everyone runs away from skunks, especially cats who walk under wet paint. Ah well, in Rundaline, you control the running skunk Pancho. He needs to make it to the finish line, collecting all the coins he can, while avoiding all the obstacles that will stop him in his tracks. Now in most runners you tap the screen to jump. Rundaline is a little different. In this game, you control the terrain its…

Addictive Word Puzzler Quarrel Deluxe Reduced To 99c

(Apologies to all non-football fans and non-UK-based television viewers for the following important announcement.) When the news broke that Sky Soccer Saturday anchor Jeff Stelling had resigned from Channel 4 words and numbers quiz show Countdown, this particular writer was devastated. How would I recover? How could I continue? Pretty easily, as it happens, for I've become clinically addicted to Indiagames's Quarrel Deluxe almost overnight, and I no longer hum the Countdown theme tune in my sleep. I think. The reason my girlfriend has to surgically remove my fingers at 10pm from the iPhone touchscreen and the lure of Quarrel Deluxe? It combines two of my favourite things in the world (o…


Battle Group Review

Review Bane Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Battle Group Review

I'd like to think that we've all seen Missile Command before; its iconic gameplay revolving around spitting out explosive charges to consume incoming projectiles has even been the subject of TV shows like Chuck. More to the point, remakes have never been in short supply, but few attempt to truly innovate like Battle Group by Bane Games. Much like the game that inspired it, you'll initially tap the screen to launch explosive charges that slowly move away from your ship to defend it fro…

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
ADVENA Review

It has been a while since I've said anything like this, but if you missed out on the days of going to the local arcade and throwing a few coins down on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with a few friends, then you missed out on something really special. Beat'em-ups are usually cathartic in their own right, but the addition of three other players turns it in to an almost unfair brawl where you begrudgingly assist each other, if only to beat the boss and play the next level. ADVENA by Gamev…
