Adventure Isle Review

Adventure Isle Review

After wading through endless murky corridors, dank ichor-strewn buildings and dark forests while eliminating zombie hordes in the Alive 4-ever series by Meridian I was caught off-guard by their latest release, Treasure Jones. As a treasure-hunter with your faithful side-kick dog you'll need to venture through 35 stages to earn cash and collect hidden artifacts from around the world and this is no easy task when you seem to attract the ire of just about every animal you come across. Ea…

Revolt Review

Revolt Review

It has been hard to avoid the somewhat excited word-of-mouth lead up to the release of Revolt by Kristopher Peterson and Jaap Kreijkamp and now that I have it in my hands it's not hard to see how it garnered all of this attention. In Revolt you get to play as 'Guy', a talented engineer and former slave for the mechanical forces that have claimed Earth (yup, it's that old chestnut) and it's up to you to storm the fortress and take down the robot over-mind. The controls will be familiar…

Tapic Review

Review Zentertain Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Tapic Review

Freemium style titles can be a risky investment, either consuming your time utterly or requiring more money than a regular game to be worthwhile. Tapic by Zentertain is an interesting mix of paid and freemium and for fans of rhythm games it's an investment that may just be worth your time. And the reason for this is a simple one as you can finally play a tap-rhythm game with your own music library. Much like advanced rhythm games like Audiosurf, Tapic doesn't come with a preset or pur…

Hungry Helga Review

Review Grid Monsters By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Hungry Helga Review

Hungry Helga is hungry, REALLY hungry and should you get on her bad side you're liable to find you, your ship and your crew sinking to the bottom of the ocean if you face her terrible wrath. Thankfully if you can keep Helga satiated she'll use her divine powers to make your job easier, but between gulls, sharks, icebergs and clever fish your work is not going to be simple. Players can tap the screen up to three times in a row to launch explosive charges in to the water, stunning the f…

Contact Us form fixed!

Contact Us form fixed!

It recently came to our attention that the 'Contact Us' form for AppSpy.com was no longer functioning correctly and as a result many forms sent have been piling up in to that big ethereal trash folder in the sky. First of all we'd like to apologize to any developers or PR companies who tried to get in contact and received no reply - please feel free to resend your requests and if you would like to include the date of your original submission we'll try to take that in to consideration. Secondly, and lastly if you are a developer or with a PR company you can also contact me directly at andrewn@appspy.com, thereby cutting out the middle-man as it were. We hope that we were able to…


Beast Boxing 3D - Monster Fighting Action! Review

Review Goodhustle Studios, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Beast Boxing 3D - Monster Fighting Action! Review

Where games like Super KO Boxing went for a classic Punch-Out! style for their arcade boxing gameplay, Beast Boxing 3D by Goodhustle Studios tries to up the ante by sticking with touch controls and a 3D design that's clever and gorgeous to watch in action. Jumping in to Beast Boxing couldn't be more intuitive and players have access to three basic punch types thanks to tapping and swiping the screen. Quick jabs only require a tap, but hooks and uppercuts are triggered by swiping acros…

Riddim Ribbon Review

Review Tapulous, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Riddim Ribbon Review

If you're a fan of rhythm games then it's hard not to have come across Tapulous and their Tap Tap Revenge series. However, the company has since decided to spread its wings and attempt something new and now players can try their side-project Riddim Ribbon without needing to listen to The Black Eyed Peas. Much like Tapulous' other basic packs this is a free title packaged with a few songs and access to a store with song packs to add to your collection. In this title you'll be presented…

Boondock Saints Mobile Game Review

Review Boondock Saints, LLC. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Boondock Saints Mobile Game Review

Boondock Saints Mobile Game isn't so much a movie-to-game title as it is a game associated with a film. That's my subtle way of trying to cover my eyes and ears and hope that this game was some sort of mistake. If you haven't given yourself over to the magic that is The Boondock Saints, then I wholly recommend you go and watch the film now. For those of you that stayed you're going to have a slightly less pleasant experience. This title is ostensibly a twin-stick shooter, though the s…


Worms 2: Armageddon Review

Review Team17 Software Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Worms 2: Armageddon Review

Finally! Worms 2: Armageddon Holy Grenades to shove in your face by Team17 has slipped on to the App Store and much of what made the original title irksome to enjoy has been fixed, leaving you with the juicy, classic worm on worm action you've come to expect of the franchise. The controls haven't seen much in the way of changes, though for the most part the ability to aim and get around the level was never too hard. Touching each side of the screen will wiggle you in that direction, b…

WackyLands Boss Review

WackyLands Boss by Fair Play Labs and Chillingo gives you the chance to find out just what motivates an evil monster as you mow your way across the countryside, flinging heroes left and right to get that perfect view f…

Zombies : The Last Stand Review

Review Chris Egerter By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Zombies : The Last Stand Review

What's most surprising about trying Zombies : The Last Stand (ZTLS) is that despite its heavy requirements the game just looks and feels so bland. Sure, running around and killing zombies may not have the same exciting flair it used to, but it shouldn't feel like such a chore. ZTLS is set in a first-person perspective and the controls are what you'd expect, with a virtual stick to move on the left, swiping to aim and a fire button in the right corner. Weapons can also be swapped via a…


ChuChu Rocket! Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
ChuChu Rocket! Review

If you never had a chance to play ChuChu Rocket! the first time around on the Dreamcast, then you're in for a treat as SEGA have ported this title over for the App Store. This classic puzzle title of 'cat and mouse' antics takes a somewhat surreal twist as you attempt to help the mice (Chu-Chus) to escape the clutches of the hungry cats (Kapu-Kapu). Both the mice and the cats will run endlessly around in loops, turning to their right every time they hit a surface and you'll need to di…

Age of Zombies™ Review

Review Halfbrick Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
Age of Zombies™ Review

Monster Dash was only the start of the adventures of Barry Steakfries and now devotees of his monster-stomping ways can blast through time and space in Halfbrick Studio's latest release, Age of Zombies. At first glance, the game couldn't seem more conventional as you blast away at zombies with a pistol loaded with infinite ammo and maneuver your barely shaven hero around the screen with twin-stick controls. But then the little details start to shine through and what should be just ano…
