Forever Drive Gets Updated With Ability To Earn Credits, Track Editing, And More

Have you ever been out on a great drive and wanted it to last forever? Supermono's Forever Drive allows you to drive until your heart's content, by stitching thousands of user-created courses together into one continuous trail. Supermono has recently updated the freemium racer and introduced some new features, starting with the ability to earn free credits for "racing lots of tracks". You'll even be gifted them in small numbers from time to time. Furthermore, the way you create your own tracks has been tweaked, meaning you can now produce up to five courses without spending a single penny. And if you just fancy a spot of modifying, you can go back and alter your creations until your fing…


Cosmic Cab Review

Review Sybo Games ApS By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Cosmic Cab Review

Being a cab driver has its share of nightmares, but as bad as a city or high population area might be, it pales in comparison to the intergalactic cab circuit. And that's exactly where you make your living in Cosmic Cab. Can you get you passengers where they're going as fast as possible, while supplementing your income along the way by collecting all the precious anti-matter? Whoever designed the roads in Cosmic Cab is definitely certifiable. Multi-lane freeways in a tube break away i…

More Order & Chaos Online Accounts Have Been Hacked

More Order & Chaos Online Accounts Have Been Hacked

You thought you could breathe a huge Order & Chaos Online sigh of relief, didn't you? Unfortunately not. After reporting on the first Gameloft Live security breach a few weeks ago, which involved hackers gaining access to Order & Chaos Online players' accounts, we told you we'd keep you updated on events relating to the French studio's iPhone MMORPG. And so we are. In spite of Gameloft's best attempts at plugging the Order & Chaos Online security holes, a raft of gamers - some of whom were affected in October, some of whom were not - have had their accounts hacked over the weekend. If that wasn't enough bad news for the Order & Chaos Online masses, reports are surfacing…


Oh! Edo Towns Review

Review Kairosoft Co.,Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Oh! Edo Towns Review

I guess this was sort of inevitable - no I don't mean Kairosoft releasing a new game, but rather a game from Kairosoft that touches (if only tangentially) on actual city management games like Sim City. Any real similarity between the classic Sim game and Oh! Edo Towns is only minor, so what does the latest game from the Japanese powerhouse developer have to offer? If you've delved in to their previous games of Hot Springs Story and High School Story you'll get a good sense of deja vu…

Wizardry Labyrinth of Lost Souls Review

Review ACQUIRE Corp. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Wizardry Labyrinth of Lost Souls Review

I'm prepared to be lynched by the mob, but first hear me out: While I was never a personal fan of the first-person RPG while growing up (even despite some amazing examples of the genre on the Commodore Amiga, I get what makes them so appealing - I love the challenge of overcoming my ignorance and mastering an otherwise puzzling system of gameplay. Unfortunately for Wizardry Labyrinth of Lost Souls this is 2011 and we have better ways to remove 'hand holding' without making a player fee…

Super Stickman Golf Goes Free For 24 Hours On iPhone

Super Stickman Golf Goes Free For 24 Hours On iPhone

Super Stickman Golf may have been put off its game slightly by a trademark troll earlier in the year, yet it remains a phenomenally enjoyable iPhone experience. This inventive trajectory-based puzzler from Noodlecake pitched up on AppSpy's green a little under a year ago and received full marks from Andrew on review. The effortlessly simple control method complements the cleverly designed levels rather nicely, while the online multiplayer mode is a genuine treat. So long as you have three mates who own the game, of course. Whether you're a Billy No-Mates of Mr Popular, mind, news that Super Stickman Golf is going free for a day should be music to your ears. 261 holes and Retina display…


Riptide GP Review

Review Vector Unit By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Riptide GP Review

Full disclosure aside, we here at AppSpy are big fans of the Waverace series on the Nintendo 64 and Gamecube. Will that bias affect our review of the iPhone's latest jet-ski racer, Riptide GP? Well if it's well made there's nothing to worry about. Let us continue. The first thing you'll notice upon loading up a race is the game looks incredibly slick. The water is beautiful and everything is nice and crisp. The game automatically accelerates (although you can turn that off if you wish…

Q&A With Massive Joe Studios

To promote the recent release of Age of Monsters - Rock Paper Scissors by Massive Joe Studios, one of the creative minds behind the project, Jeff Matsuda, recently jumped on social site Reddit to perform an AMA ('Ask Me Anything'). Not only was it a huge success from the viewpoint of Matsuda's fans as they got to request some amazing artwork, it provided a unique way to get the word out there about their iOS title. Not to miss a beat, AppSpy has managed to grab hold of Mike Su and Jeff Matsuda from Massive Joe Studios to ask them a few questions. Introductions Massive Joe is founded by Mike Su and Jeff Matsuda. Mike (me, speaking in third person) was previously VP of Games and VP of Produ…


Ninja Ponk Review

Ninja Ponk Review

Ever wonder how ninjas train? Apparently it all has to do with jumping between platforms. What the documentaries fail to mention is the all too important job of the paddler. You see, the crevice is too large for even the most athletic of ninjas to overcome, therefore they need a paddle of varying lengths. This is where you as the player come in. Help train as many ninjas as possible in the time limit by ferrying them to the other side, all the while avoiding the bombs and arrows dedica…

Monochrome Puzzler Contre Jour Gets Updated With 20 New Levels

Monochrome Puzzler Contre Jour Gets Updated With 20 New Levels

The term Contre Jour relates to a specific photography practice in which snapshots are taken with a light source behind the subject. Unsurprisingly, Chillingo's environmental puzzler also focusses on light, tasking you with navigating several monochromatic landscapes in search of its warm glow. Playing as a black blob named Petit, you must utilise tentacles, portals, slingshots, and a variety of other means to reach your goal, as you morph the landscape around your globule. Chillingo have added an all-new chapter - Moonlight - to their popular App Store puzzler, which introduces 20 new levels to explore. These supplement the 60 levels that have been present since the game's launch. Contr…


SpinTrip Review

Review ablemagic By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
SpinTrip Review

Most platformers are content with assigning players a handful of 'powers', be it through tokens they earn that give them temporary special abilities or by using button combinations to add a level of skill to the gameplay. SpinTrip takes a slightly different approach, breaking down the gameplay in to moving left/right and jumping while only being able to activate one power at a time; the catch is, you need to 'find' the power in question first. It's an intriguing idea and where most ga…

Review Alawar Entertainment, Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Zombie Samurai Review

Jumping in to Zombie Samurai by Eye Interactive and Alawar Entertainment almost immediately took me back - not to some distant childhood memory of gaming, but rather to the beginning of my iOS gaming when castle defense titles roamed the landscape like large lumbering behemoths that you couldn't escape. Sure, we see shadows of this rarefied beast now and then in other titles, but this game brings back the genre lock, stock and barrel, perhaps as a reminder of why we've moved on. The p…

Review Mika Mobile, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Zombieville USA 2 Review

For those who have been iOS gaming for a while now, Zombieville USA is somewhat of a classic icon of the platform - while it wasn't terribly complicated, trying to survive as long as possible while having limited resources made for a fun distraction, if not actually compelling gameplay for some. Times have changed though and what was refreshing compared to the limited amount of titles available back then isn't quite so fresh any more, so how does Mika Mobile's sequel, Zombieville USA 2…
