Hands on with Ruben is Sleepy, the game where TV powers your nightmares, and your nightmares are filled with dumb cats

Hands on with Ruben is Sleepy, the game where TV powers your nightmares, and your nightmares are filled with dumb cats

Ruben is Sleepy has something in common with bullet-hell shmup Ikaruga: it has a polarity shifting mechanic which forces you to switch the coloured charge of the hero to stay alive. However, as Ikaruga doesn't have you tumbling ever downwards through a nightmarish world of TV sets sporting pictures of cats, or sunsets, or whatever else you fevered brain cooks up, that's where the similarities end. What the hell am I talking about? Check out the video above to find out.…

Hands-on with Galcon 2, the planet swarming strategy sequel where triangles conquer the universe

Galcon was a smart and sexy little strategy game. The simple premise (conquer all the planets onscreen before your opponent ) and intuitive tap-to-attack controls made it a perfect fit for short bursts of touchscreen gaming. The sequel, Galcon 2, is set to hit the App Store later tonight. There have a been a few changes, both to the multiplayer aspect and the payment model. Do these tweaks improve the experience? Check out the video above to learn more.…

Cooking Fever's latest update is a bit fishy, Android version coming Q1 2015

The first time you have sushi, almost without fail, you look like this. But then, after you've tasted its umami deliciousness, you inevitably wind up looking like this. Nordcurrent has just added some fish, rice, and nori delights to Cooking Fever, but this time there's a twist. The new update is a bit different to previous ones (such as the English Breakfast update) as it changes up the gameplay to better represent the creative process behind throwing together a bit of Maki. You need to select the right ingredients, roll said ingredients together, and ensure the finished product is stored correctly, before serving them to hungry customers. If you're an Android gamer then you'll also be…

Tiny Realms coming to Android early 2015, big updates for iOS players before Christmas

TinyMob has dropped us a line to say that if you happen to be an Android gamer you'll very soon have access to what I sincerely believe is one of the best strategy games of the year. Tiny Realms will come to Android devices "in the New Year", and you only need to see just how much coverage we've given it so far to know that you should be very excited about this fact if you happen to game with Google gubbins. We've also been told that those with the iOS version will receive "major new content" before 2014 is through. If you're waiting for the Android version (or you haven't yet downloaded the game for your iPhone or iPad), here's the brand new trailer for the Battlegrounds mode to get you…

Ambition announces surprising download figures for its English language dating games, plus MOE Can Change is now available in 3 new countries

Brilliantly bizarre dating sim Animal Boyfriend struck a chord with me earlier this year, and it seems to have struck a chord with some of you too. In conjunction with developer Ambition's other western release - MOE Can Change - its English language titles have now been downloaded an impressive 200,000 times. At the same time as we received news of this download milestone, Ambition also revealed to us that MOE Can Change has now been released in three new countries: Thailand, Vietnam, and Singapore. So if you're in those territories and fancy teaching a lady robot how to love, fill your boots. And really, who doesn't? Here's the trailer... ... and here's how you can download MOE Can C…

Top 4 iOS games coming to Android this week

The Gods are favouring us this week, Android fans, as a lot of hit iOS titles are making the difficult trek over to Android in time for Christmas. Still no news of an Oceanhorn port, though - for shame! We've got a bit handsy with a few of these titles in the past, so you'll most likely be hearing the well-toned voices and reasoned critical opinions of the AppSpy team instead of some trailer acting all official-like.  1. Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft Hearthstone has bossed the App Store in terms of card-based battling, though it has got a serious competitor in Magic: The Gathering. Shame we've had to wait so long - around eight months in fact - but better l…

Console and PC RPG Lords of the Fallen to be released on mobile in 2015

We're not exactly sure how CI Games is planning on cramming this ultra-gorgeous RPG onto your iOS and Android devices next year, but that's exactly what the studio has announced. Lords of the Fallen was a launch title for Xbox One and PS4, and looked impressive even by those standards. Still, who are we to complain? Another epic RPG on the App Store or Google Play definitely wouldn't hurt.…

Top 5 Temple Run alternatives on Android

Temple Run is still the undisputed champion of auto-runners no matter what mobile platform you're on. Unfortunately, due to its success, a lot of awesome alternatives get completely looked over - especially on Android, where the market is flooded with cheap and tacky alternatives. Not to worry, AppSpies - we're here to help. We've played a whole bunch of them and seperated the wheat from the chaff to bring you this epic list of Temple Run alternatives on Android.  1. Run Forrest Run Who doesn't want to play an auto-runner based on Forrest Gump? This one is more like a cartoon version, with colourful graphics, larger than life versions of the characters, and events that just…

Yes, it's a game with running and zombies in it. We know, okay.We don't make the damn things, we just cover them. Stop looking at us like that. Look, it exists, and there's nothing we can do about it now. Best we all just watch the video above, and then move on with our lives. …

Hands-on with Yellow House, the point-and-click adventure which lets you put rats on the heads of old men

I'm not sure how to describe Yellow House. In the simplest terms, it's a point-and-click adventure about memory - specifically, one man's ability to recall his past In practical terms, it's a game about dragging men off the ceiling, turning mutant rats into house cats, and transforming a hotel patron into a hat stand. You'd best watch the video above. It'll make things much clearer.…

Now you can flip your bike over in abject frustration with friends in Trials Frontier's PvP update

Mobiles are an entirely social tool. You're constantly receiving calls, texts, messenger messages, and a whole host of other irritating pop-ups that cover your beautiful wallpaper. So why, then, don't more mobile games contain PvP so we can play against our friends? Well, Ubisoft have got the message and have updated the, quite frankly, awesome Trials Frontier with a new PvP mode that allows you to do just that. Check out the trailer below for a look at the new mode in action.…

6 wince-inducing crotch busting shots from Gingerbread Stickman Shooting Showdown

There's a dedicated community of gamers playing Gingerbread Stickman Shooting Showdown looking to perfect their aim with a bow and arrow. Most of them are trying to shoot the little gingerbread man on the top of the stickman's head, but some of them aren't. Some of them are trying to shoot the stickman in the crotch, attempting (no doubt) to ellicit the most painful yelp they possibly can, and then capturing the moment for eternity and publishing it on Everyplay. Each to their own, here are the six best... Blam, right in the jewels. Ouch. Owowowowowowowowow. Oh my goodness. These are starting to make me feel a bit ill now. That's really gonna smart in the morning. Found…


Hands-on with Polyform, the game which lets you grope a Rubiks cube in space

Hands-on with Polyform, the game which lets you grope a Rubiks cube in space

Okay, so that title may not be entirely accurate. Polyform is a game about cubes - specifically, a cluster of multi-coloured cubes floating in the cosmos. It's your job to add similarly coloured cubes to this weightless congregation of angles, and vapourise segments of the structure block by block. So yeah, it's a colour-matching puzzler. However, the 3D twist turns it into something a little different, and kinda cool. Check out the video above to see what I mean.…
