Another World - 20th Anniversary Review

Review DotEmu By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Another World - 20th Anniversary Review

In a recent News Wrap-Up I confessed that I had never played Eric Chahi's classic title Another World and I've always felt a twinge of regret on that score. Thankfully the 20th Anniversary release of the title from Bulkypix and retro-game specialists DotEmu has helped me to correct this oversight, but does this 20 year old game stand the test of time? You play the role of Lester, a research scientist who finds himself transported Out of This World and you'll need to face off against t…

iChallenger-Return Review

Review D&D Dream Corp. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
iChallenger-Return Review

I return to you a changed man after spending time within the world of iChallenger-Return by D&D Dream Corp. I am but a broken individual, shattered and twisted upon the jagged rocks of iChallenger's brutal battlefield. Moments of joy punctuate an otherwise chilling memory of dying over and over, but I will remain strong for you, our viewers. Should you take up the challenge for yourself you'll first need to overcome the Trial of the Control Scheme. Swiping up and down on the left…

Hero's Way Review

Review Lakoo By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Hero's Way Review

There exists a place at which too much control is removed from the hands of the player and while the specific point may vary for each individual, turning an Action-RPG in to what feels like an automated Sim seems to cross the line. Hero's Way by Lakoo is, at the very least, a novel idea and one that may appeal to those sick of mashing buttons, but having RPG characters that do everything for you feels immensely lazy. Aside from the selection of equipment; the distribution of character…

Monsters Ate My Condo Review

Review [adult swim] By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Monsters Ate My Condo Review

How does Adult Swim do it? The last thing a reviewer expects is for the late night comedy viewing block of a dedicated cartoon cable channel to constantly hit it out of the park with such original and amusing iPhone game releases. Monsters ate my Condo continues this trend with being an all out assault on the senses hiding a pretty solid tower stacking puzzle game underneath. The game operates around a condo and monsters. Two monsters out of four surround a condo that has floors const…

Tune Rider Review

Review H2indie LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 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, 11 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, 11 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, 11 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 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…
