Terra Noctis Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Terra Noctis Review

In the world of nightmares, where the most vile and horrific apparitions that our imaginations can concoct reside, you play the role of... Allen. Hey, not every nightmare can be terrifying, and that's exactly what Allen's problem is. His teacher is fed up with him for not being at all scary, and so while looking through the library, Allen finds a book that says anyone who eats the heart of this creature deep in the forest will become utterly terrifying. We've got ourselves a quest here…

Bloons 2 Review

Review Ninja Kiwi By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
Bloons 2 Review

Everyone remember Bloons? No, not the popular tower defense game, the other one. You know, the monkey who uses darts to pop a series of balloons for no discernible reason? Well, it's been over two years and that game has finally gotten a sequel. For those of you who have been waiting for more primate popping pandemonium, let us tell you what the sequel has in store. Players of the original should feel quite at home, and new players should realize that the first title had such shortcom…

Kairosoft’s Pocket League Story Brings Zany Soccer Management To iPhone

Kairosoft have brought yet another one of their ultra-addictive management titles to the iPhone, with Pocket League Story available to download now from the App Store. Pocket League Story has you managing a soccer team as you pass, shoot, and tackle your way to the top of the league. So, you're in charge of recruiting and training players for your squad, as well as deciding tactics when matchday rolls around. Kairosoft's past form on the iPhone is excellent - we here at App Spy awarded Venture Towns 4/5, while Hot Springs Story managed to snag a coveted 5/5. Pocket League Story is available to download now, and if you dribble your way to the App Store, it can be yours for $2.99.…


Top 10 iPhone Games Of 2011

Toplist By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Top 10 iPhone Games Of 2011

For those that know me personally, 'top lists' are a topic I find to be profoundly difficult to participate in as there's always a point at which you're splitting hairs just for the sake of ranking one thing above or below another. Keeping this in mind, AppSpy.com's Top 10 iOS Games for 2011 has not been numbered for the simple reason that a game's position ultimately means so very little when you consider how many games it had to overcome to reach that spot. Hold on to your pitchforks though as Dave, Richard and I have selected our personal favorites of the year, so at least three games will be going home with the knowledge that they managed to crack the cold-hard shell of these r…


Top 3 iOS Games for December 2011

Toplist By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Top 3 iOS Games for December 2011

Before we get to the big lists of the year we need to follow protocol and make sure we acknowledge the best games of December 2011. With this in mind, December had some surprisingly hefty releases, though not all of them turned out to be as exciting as we had hoped. None the less as always there's some spark of hope given the amount of releases each month, so lets get stuck in. 3. Sonic CD - SEGA $2.99 For many, including myself, the opportunity to play Sonic CD on its original console was a rare one (or at least rarer than most) and while future consoles had versions of the game, it was never quite the same. Thankfully clever-cookie Christian Whitehead spent the time rebuilding…

Icebreaker Hockey Is Free To Download For A Limited Time

Icebreaker Hockey Is Free To Download For A Limited Time

NaturalMotion Games's arcade ice hockey title Icebreaker Hockey is currently free to download for a limited time. The recipient of a mighty fine 4/5 from this very site, Icebreaker Hockey has you deking and spinning your way past fierce opposition players, before lining up a power shot to beat the goaltender. On the other hand, you may mess up somewhere along the way and get brutally barged into a Plexiglass wall for your troubles. It's a game of heroic victories and hilariously exaggerated defeats, then, as you work your way through the increasingly stiff opposition provided in Challenge mode. There's no word on how long this promotion is set to last, so hockey fans will want to get the…


RAVENMARK: Scourge of Estellion Review

Review Witching Hour Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
RAVENMARK: Scourge of Estellion Review

At the risk of sounding like a cliched reviewer, Ravenmark by Witching Hour Studios is best explained as a combination of titles we've seen before. Taking a dash of Fire Emblem, a smidgen of Advance Wars and a whole smattering of touches from other turn-based strategy titles, its style of gameplay is at once familiar, but still quite unique. Set in a fantasy world, each level of the comprehensive campaign pits you against AI in typical situations (defend a location; destroy enemies; e…

MEGA MAN X Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
MEGA MAN X Review

It seems that Capcom isn't able to catch a break when it comes to the reviewers assigned to their Mega Man franchise titles on the App Store - while Mega Man 2 is Dave's favorite from the series (at least on its original console), Mega Man X was (and still is) my personal favorite. With this in mind the iOS release of the title was more than welcome and still a blast to play through, but like so many of the developers releases on the App Store it suffers for its disregard of the platfo…

Wind-up Knight Walkthrough Chapter 1 Levels 1-6

Wind-up Knight Walkthrough Chapter 1 Levels 1-6

One thing we're always considering here at AppSpy is what we can do to add to our list of regular features, hopefully entertaining or informing our viewers in some way. Considering the amount of time spent playing and recording the games we review, it only made sense to add a Walkthrough video to our repertoir; as such we've started with the recent Wind-up Knight and hope to slowly add more games over time. Apologies for those looking for a Wrap-Up this week - we'll be back up to speed after the New Year and you can look forward to plenty of regular features (Games of the Month and Games of the Year) once I'm back in the office. Have fun, party safe and enjoy the following video if you're…


ZENONIA® 4 Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
ZENONIA® 4 Review

For those who have followed the Zenonia series from GAMEVIL, the best that could be said of each one is that they have learned from their previous iterations, tweaking and adding tiny features to remain competitive in the KRPG scene. Zenonia 4 represents a shift from this trend as it feels more like a broad summary of the previous titles while taking the game in a new direction by handing out the game for free. With this price-point comes some obvious changes, the largest being the sc…

Wind-up Knight Review

Review Robot Invader By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Wind-up Knight Review

Sometimes a developer can get so caught up in an idea that they'll let slide something as fundamental as ensuring the gameplay remains engaging just to keep a concept on board. Wind-up Knight by Robot Invader could very well have slipped in to this trap thanks to its clockwork protagonist, but not only does the idea make for a charming theme, it also makes for a compelling platformer. Born from the same school of thought that spawned titles like BIT.TRIP RUNNER, the clockwork knight y…

Foodie The Bug Review

Foodie The Bug Review

Foodie plans to travel the world. To make sure his energy levels are up he needs to constantly be snacking on multicolored jelly beans. With plenty of power-ups to boost him along and increase his intake, and an upgrade system to improve his abilities, can you help him reach his goal (which resides at the end of each level)? Upon first glance this looks like another slingshot physics game, but the flinging is only for launch. Once in the air Foodie hovers along with the iPhone being u…

Rockstar Discount Grand Theft Auto Titles On iPhone

Rockstar Discount Grand Theft Auto Titles On iPhone

Rockstar Games, developers of the Grand Theft Auto series, are discounting their iPhone releases as a Christmas gift to gamers. That means you can pick up the open-world classic Grand Theft Auto III, which we awarded a perfect 5/5 in our review last week, for a mere $2.99. While GTA3 was originally released on the PS2, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars was developed especially for portable devices. It, too, picked up 5/5 in our review, and it's currently available for $5.99. Finally, Rockstar's music creation app Beaterator is also available at a reduced price. Co-produced by the rapper Timbaland, this fancy bit of software is available for $1.99. Rockstar fans have until 29th December to…


Venture Towns Review

Review Kairosoft Co.,Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Venture Towns Review

When playing a Kairosoft game, it's easy to see the influence of the sim games that have come before, especially Will Wright's Simcity. Venture Towns feels very close to Simcity, just with more of a personal focus... and don't get us wrong, this isn't a bad thing at all. Instead of just building a city, you're behind the reins of a mega-conglomerate, creating a community for its employees to work, live, and prosper. Through building vacant lots, shops, amusements, and offices to find…
