Hunters 2 Review

Review Rodeo Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Hunters 2 Review

Rodeo Games first impressed us here at AppSpy when they released their clean and simple strategic turn-based shooter 'Hunters: Episode One' last year. Its weakness, though, was a lack of depth, choosing instead to generate near-infinite amounts of content to make up for this. Their newly released sequel has gone a step further, opting to provide players with more opportunities to customize their gun-toting crew and more importantly, packaging in a storyline to keep you motivated. It's…

Angry Birds Space Review

Review Rovio Entertainment Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Angry Birds Space Review

If any game on the App Store deserves a true sequel, it's Angry Birds. Rovio Mobile's classic hit still shapes the way in which developers approach making games for iOS device owners and while some of that success is owed to marketing, it's hard to argue against the game's approachable and addictive design. Now, after many half-steps, Angry Birds Space is the first title in the series to move the game forward, giving fans of the series something they can truly sink their teeth in to.…

Super Stickman Golf Goes Free For A Limited Time Only

News By James Nouch, 2 years, 8 months ago
Super Stickman Golf Goes Free For A Limited Time Only

Noodlecake's arcade golfing game Super Stickman Golf is currently available from the App Store free of charge. Boasting 261 holes to play through, a range of crazy power-ups to exploit, and full support for Game Center leaderboards, this is one of the more content-rich App Store freebies we've seen recently. As if you needed further incentive to help yourself to a free game, we can also tell you that Super Stickman Golf is something of an AppSpy favourite, earning itself a 5/5 in our review. This is strictly a limited-time offer, though, so you'll want to hot-foot it over to the App Store now, before they 'drive' the price back up. Ahem.…


Madcoaster Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 8 months ago
Madcoaster Review

One of the first games AppSpy ever reviewed was 3D Rollercoaster Rush, and to be honest, upon opening up Mad Coaster, there was some expectations that it would be similar (as it had some fun albeit not long-lasting gameplay). Mad Coaster is not even close however, taking the concept of riding a rollercoaster and plopping it in the endless runner genre, complete with coin collecting, and objectives to complete. All you need to know to play this is that you tap the screen to jump over c…

Friday News Wrap-Up 23 March 2012

It's that time of the week again and we here at AppSpy are busy busy busy trying to delve in to the pile of games that were recently released, so lets not keep everyone waiting and jump straight in to the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 23rd of March, 2012. Bethesda Softworks Hiring for iOSWe can dump this news in to the rumor pile, but Zenimax, the parent company for Skyrim developer Bethesda has posted a job opportunity for someone with experience in the iOS development field. Considering the company has had rumors regarding an iOS product that dates way back to 2009 and their only real outing has been the official Skyrim map pack, it's hard to know if this is something to take seri…


Hunger Games: Girl on Fire Review

Review Lions Gate Films Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Hunger Games: Girl on Fire Review

[This mini-review was featured in our Friday News Wrap-Up for the 23rd of March, 2012] As mentioned when we originally announced the Hunger Games game for iOS, I have to admit my complete ignorance of the teen novel and its recent movie adaption. Still, a fun game is a fun game and when so many well-known game developers come together to collaborate the end result is bound to be polished if nothing else. Quite simply, the game is an endless runner featuring Katniss as she explores the…

Angry Birds Space Is Out Now On iPhone

News By James Nouch, 2 years, 8 months ago
Angry Birds Space Is Out Now On iPhone

Angry Birds Space, Rovio's first proper follow-up to the App Store phenomenon that is Angry Birds, is out now. The iPhone version is currently priced at 99c. Retaining the bird-flinging gameplay of its predecessors, Angry Birds Space transplants the action to a new setting: outer space. This allows for plenty of new gameplay mechanics, including slow motion, low gravity, and light speed destruction. There are 60 levels of pig-bashing action to work your way through, and - as is the norm with the Angry Birds franchise - regular free content updates are promised. If you're still not convinced, then you won't have long to wait until the publication of the definitive AppSpy review. Just watc…

Review Interwave Studios B.V. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
rComplex Review

The App Store isn't hurting for variety in its gameplay. While some gamers bemoan the inevitable slew of titles that ride the coat-tails of a successful franchise, the upshot is a refinement of the gameplay in to something resembling a genre. As such there are often minimum expectations for such games, especially when so many have tried and failed already, making large missteps hard to forgive. rComplex by Interwave Studios has sadly fallen in to this situation and while its unbelieva…

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP On Sale For One Day Only

News By James Nouch, 2 years, 8 months ago
Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP On Sale For One Day Only

The award-winning pixel-art adventure game Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is currently available for just $1.99 (Universal app) or 99c (iPhone), in a one-day sale to mark yesterday's vernal equinox. It's one of the more unusual reasons given for an App Store discount we've seen on AppSpy, but we'd encourage you to take advantage, nonetheless. After all, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP won the 2010 Independent Games Foundation (IGF) Mobile award for Achievement in Art. Much more importantly, we loved it, too - our 'award' was a glowing 5/5 review. The game itself is hard to discuss without spoiling its elegant storyline, but it casts players as a warrior monk exploring a be…


Draw Something Review

Review OMGPOP By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Draw Something Review

I bring this message to you in the brief moments of time I now have spare to me. It is abundantly clear to me now that downloading, installing and playing Draw Something with my friends was a huge mistake - I need to work, but I can't... I'm stuck trying to work out how best to depict the word 'Morning' in a clever new way. OMGPOP - you have single-handedly ruined the productivity of smartphone owners around the world. For those who haven't jumped on board the increasingly popular cr…

Azkend 2 - The World Beneath Review

Review 10tons Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 8 months ago
Azkend 2 - The World Beneath Review

Traveling on a boat from Liverpool, England to New York, you find yourself swept up in a maelstrom and awaken beneath the waves, embarking on an adventure full of wondrous locations untouched and unseen by any explorer before. To back up this intriguing tale with gameplay, Azkend 2 takes the popular match three formula, adds its own unique spin, and throws in some easy hidden object diversion for good measure. The match three game is based around fixing or acquiring lost or broken obj…

MotoHeroz Review

Review Ubisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
MotoHeroz Review

Much like CAVE and their predictable, but almost always excellent bullet-hell shooters, RedLynx can be counted upon to add to their collection of time-trial titles. Fresh off the heels of their update to the Draw Race series, MotoHeroz is a side-on time-trial racer, but it's not entirely new for the company as it repackages a stripped down version of the Nintendo Wii title of the same name for the iOS platform. 'Stripped down' has such a nasty sound to it though and all you're likely…

World of Warcraft Could Soon Be Ported To the iPhone

World of Warcraft Could Soon Be Ported To the iPhone

World of Warcraft (WoW) may yet appear on the iPhone, for the chaps at Blizzard are actively considering ways of bringing their MMO baby to mobiles. That's according to senior World of Warcraft producer John Lagrave, who discussed Blizzard's plans with Eurogamer last week. We won't do it until we think it's decent. But it's interesting and the world is evolving towards that little handheld device [...] It would be foolish for any game developer to not be looking at that. But bringing the expansive World of Warcraft experience to the iPhone would be no easy task, of course, as Lagrave points out. It's hard! This is hard! Here's your platform, you've got to put an interface, what do you do…


Flight Control Rocket Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Flight Control Rocket Review

Despite its oddly phrased name, it's hard not to think of Firemint's classic line-drawing title when you hear about their latest game, Flight Control Rocket. This is clearly no mistake as the game is best described as Flight Control with rockets, but the change of venue and theme has opened up new possibilities for greater levels of challenge. Initially, this variety is the game's greatest selling point. Players are initially introduced to a basic form of the line-drawing gameplay. Po…

Review Simple Machine, LLC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 8 months ago
Circadia Review

When Circadia loads up and you find yourself staring at the title screen waiting for something to happen, tap on the colored dot. That small interaction is all you need to know for this minimalistic puzzler. OK, well it's not everything you need to know, but let's call it at least two thirds. Tapping a colored dot will send out a ripple of color and sound. When that ripple hits the white dot, the next stage unveils itself. That's just the beginning however. Soon enough two colored dot…
