Toplist By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 12 months ago
Top 3 iOS Games for November 2011

Transcript: Despite November's reputation as a major release month for the wider sphere of gaming, iOS gamers have had somewhat slimmer pickings when it comes to high quality titles. Then again, if you happen to have a decent PC or any of the major consoles you're bound to be catching up on what's on offer there instead of gaming on your iOS device of choice, but that doesn't mean there aren't some spare moments in the day that could be filled up with something more entertaining. This is where AppSpy's list of the Top 3 iPhone games for November excels as all the games offer bite-sized gameplay and fun while still taking the time to offer something better than your average arcade…


Superman Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 12 months ago
Superman Review

GASP! What's this? A Superman game that isn't an abysmal failure of form and function? We here at Appspy are as surprised as you are! Let's face it, the man of steel has not had good representation in the videogame arena over the years. It's a shame too, as with a character who possesses such power and speed, there could be some great gameplay possibilities. While not delivering the answer to the prayers of those looking for the Superman equivalent of an Arkham Asylum, DC Comics have c…

These Robotic Hearts of Mine Review

Review Alan Hazelden By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 12 months ago
These Robotic Hearts of Mine Review

When someone says to me "I've just played an Indie game." I must admit my brain almost immediately engages in to its all-too-commonly used 'snark' mode and I wonder what pixel-art coated, chip-tune blaring, low-resolution, and philosophical narrative they could be talking about. Truth be told, while many gamers may make fun of these 'experience' driven titles, they approach gaming as a media in a way that can result in a far deeper sense of satisfaction than simply breaking bricks with…

RPM: Gymkhana Racing Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 12 months ago
RPM: Gymkhana Racing Review

When it comes to sports and racing games, players usually fall into two camps. Do you prefer a simulation game style, or an arcade one? RPM falls in the latter category as it is focused primarily on drifting, and accomplishing many varied and strange tasks while drifting. The game is controlled from an overhead 3rd person view. Hitting the accelerator will propel your car forward but since the slightest shift in turn will begin the drifting that is at the center of the game, you need…

Sequel To Gibbets, the Life-Saving Puzzle Game For Flash, Is Coming To iOS

News By James Nouch, 2 years, 12 months ago
Sequel To Gibbets, the Life-Saving Puzzle Game For Flash, Is Coming To iOS

HeroCraft, the Russian publishers responsible for the popular Flash puzzler Gibbets, have announced that a sequel is in the works, and it's coming to iOS. Playing as an altruistic marksman in the original Gibbets game, you cut condemned men down from the gallows, using only your trusty bow. With a limited number of arrows and multiple convicts to save, each level requires careful thought as well as careful accuracy. Word from Russia, then, is that Gibbets 2 is in development, and that it will be landing on the iPhone sometime in the second quarter of next year. When it does eventually touch down on iOS, it'll boast 30 new levels of slightly morbid puzzling action. There's no word yet on…


Act of Fury: Kraine’s Revenge Review

Review Forge Reply By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 12 months ago
Act of Fury: Kraine’s Revenge Review

In most bullet hell style shoot'em-ups you'd likely find yourself needing to analyze and memorize complex patterns as enemies and bosses spew forth orbs of death like a deadly fireworks display. Act of Fury: Kraine's Revenge by Forge Reply manages to forgo the usual slew of bullets, but is no less of a 'hell' as your character is similarly lacking in ranged firepower, because he IS the firepower. Kraine is been imbued with super-powers allowing him to generate a powerful and destructi…

Snoopy’s Street Fair Review

Snoopy’s Street Fair Review

I have to confess that I've somewhat wilfully ignored much of what is on TV for the last decade, that is to say, I own a TV, but much of what I watch is thanks to DVDs or the snippets I inevitably see now and then. As such I've lost touch on a pivotal annual classic that is the inevitable re-run of the Peanuts shows and movies. I go in to this review with the assumption that you have grown up with or know about this cartoon world to some degree. Beeline Interactive arguably succeeded…

DaWindci Soundtrack Giveaway!

DaWindci Soundtrack Giveaway!

We mentioned on last week's Wrap-Up that we'd have a special competition over the weekend and well... here it is *cough* I guess 'over the weekend' has gained a rather liberal meaning at this point ;) Recently we posted about the updates to Reality Twist's fun physics title DaWindci, but more importantly our original review highlighted just how relaxing and absorbing the soundtrack is. Of course you could jump on to Bandcamp and listen to it one piece at a time, but we can do even better than that. Thanks to Reality Twist we have 10 codes to give away for a free copy of the entire soundtrack. For those following us on Twitter we'll have a message up shortly that you can retweet or if you'r…


Tiny Token Empires Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 3 years ago
Tiny Token Empires Review

The politics of the ancient world are always good fodder for gaming, mainly due to the main solution to the problems of two nations in that day was to go to war with each other. Tiny Token Empires makes light of these global conflicts in a turn based strategy game that meshes risk, puzzle quest, and the base building of the real time strategy genre. There are two main screens a player will become familiar with over the course of the game. There is the combat screen, and the over-world…

Rocket Riot™ Review

Review Codeglue By Dave Flodine, 3 years ago
Rocket Riot™ Review

Pure unadulterated pixelated mayhem. This is what the general state of play in Rocket Riot represents. The pirate Blockbeard has stolen everyone's legs, so you need the use of a rocket just to get around. This premise sets the stage for level upon level of shooting fun as enemies gang up on you, sports games are played, and the environment blows up in consistent gooey chunks. Unfortunately this fun is hampered somewhat by the controls. A context sensitive arcade stick will appear wher…

Sea Stars Review

Sea Stars Review

If you were to believe a certain catchy Disney song from the early 90s, you would think that things are much better under the sea. After a few minutes playing Sea Stars, you'd definitely be giving the argument some thought. There's something about the colors, the gliding mechanics and the collectables and upgrades that make this game just a joy to play. Control as well as the style of game is similar to Tiny Wings. Pressing down on the screen gives you weight, plunging you to the bott…

Manny Pacquiao: Pound for Pound Review

Manny Pacquiao: Pound for Pound Review

Manny Pacquaio is an international boxing superstar, with some naming him the best in the world. It would only make sense then that he should appear in video games, but Pound for Pound is indeed an odd use of him. Taking the guise of an action based revenge film, this game has the titular Manny battling henchmen and street fighters in order to rescue his childhood friend who has been kidnapped. Upon starting, the game throws you right into the action. Each fight has a similar strategy…

Saving Yello Review

Review dreamfab By Dave Flodine, 3 years ago
Saving Yello Review

It must be hard to think of intriguing scenarios to justify the stretching physics puzzle gameplay that has become so popular in the last year or so. Yello is sitting in his bowl (he's a fish by the way) when a sinister hand removes him from his home. The rest of the the game is returning to your fishbowl via some rather incredible jumps, all the while grabbing points for raining down destruction on all the toys and structures that stand in your way. To make Yello jump, simply pull ba…

Kairosoft's Hot Springs Story and Pocket Academy Now $1.99

If you're a frequent user of the App Store, you'll have noticed that it only takes a sniff of a special occasion for iPhone publishers to start slashing prices. With Thanksgiving quickly approaching in the US, Japanese developers Kairosoft have decided to offer both Hot Springs Story and Pocket Academy at the discounted price of $1.99. The latter of these titles tasks you with taking over a floundering school and turning it around by constructing new classrooms, forming extracurricular clubs, and attracting eager students to your revamped institute. Hot Springs Story, on the other hand, charges you with creating a relaxing spa, where teachers can come and unwind after a long day teach…
