Tough-As-Leather 2D Platformer Meganoid Updated With New Levels

Tough-As-Leather 2D Platformer Meganoid Updated With New Levels

The humble iPhone is undoubtedly home to some of the hardest titles around, including bullet-hell shooter Dodonpachi Resurrection and retro gem League of Evil. Meganoid is another to add to that ever-growing list of tough nuts to crack. OrangePixel's game is a 2D platformer reminiscent of the aforementioned League of Evil in both its old skool aesthetic and its hair-tearing, fist-eating difficulty curve. Now, the sadists among you can leap and die over 90 stages in the game's moderately difficult Hero mode, or test your stress glands over 80 levels in the rage-inducing Sarge mode. There’s also the option to plunge to your doom backwards through the first 50 levels of the game via t…

Touch Detective Review

Review BeeworksGames By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Touch Detective Review

The App Store is in many ways a second chance at life for some games that otherwise missed their mark the first time around or feel they have enough legs to penetrate the market again. Touch Detective (also known as Mystery Detective) by BeeWorks came out in most regions for the Nintendo DS in 2006 and attempted to showcase a point-and-click adventure style game for the system. While not critically acclaimed it was still a fun game and now iOS users can give this quirky game a go for t…

Mega Mall Story Review

Review Kairosoft Co.,Ltd By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 2 months ago
Mega Mall Story Review

I hope you have plenty of time to lose because developer Kairosoft is back with another sim game to eat up the hours. In Mega Mall Story, your goal is to take the small building you've been given and turn it into a 5-star ranked mall within the span of fifteen years. Sound like an arduous task? Perhaps, but with the help of your faithful secretary and some wise investment, a great mall is certainly within reach. For as complex a game as Mega Mall Story is, it sports a mostly intuitive…

Freemium Strategy Title Kard Combat Gets New Mages, Modes In Update

Canadian developer Hothead Games may be causing something of a stir on the App Store with its baby-punting Kickin Momma game, but that doesn’t mean its freemium strategy game Kard Combat has been forgotten. Kard Combat has just received an update, giving players four new mages (Demon, Chaos, Deception, and Arcane) to choose from and a pair of new game modes - Challenge and Timed. The graphics have also been tarted up slightly in this 4/5 AppSpy rated game, while the obligatory bug fixes have been made. Though the game itself is free to play, there is a full unlock option, which will set you back $9.99. Fancy a hand?…


Space is Key Review

Review ChrisJeff Games By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 2 months ago
Space is Key Review

What is the mark of a good game? Has a game that finishes leaving you wanting more a sign of quality, or is that a sign that the developer hasn't taken their concept far enough? Space is Key by ChrisJeff games has us at Appspy thinking about this, and we'll tell you why soon enough. In Space is Key you are a moving block. You either move to the left or the right depending on the level, but the goal is the same; reach the star on the other side, and don't die. Blocking your pathway are…

FINAL FANTASY TACTICS: THE WAR OF THE LIONS Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
FINAL FANTASY TACTICS: THE WAR OF THE LIONS Review

Although many consumers may not realize it, the existence of Final Fantasy Tactics on the App Store brings a whole host of interesting and complex questions related mostly to what we as gamers expect of our time with iOS devices. Premium AAA titles aren't in a huge supply, partially due to the market still finding its feet with regards to what does and doesn't work and how much to charge (or how to split up the charges), so when a game like Tactics is released it grabs everyone's atten…

100,000 Likes On Facebook = RAGE HD Free For A Week

And there we were thinking that French publisher Gameloft is the only studio that relishes giving something back to its loyal fandom. How wrong we could be. Over on id Software's RAGE Facebook page, the creators of pioneering first-person shooters Doom and Quake have teamed up with RAGE HD's developer on iPhone Bethesda to run a fascinating promotion. Once this particular page has been 'Liked' 100,000 times on Zuckerberg's social network, RAGE HD will be made available for free for one week. At the time of going to press, 48,031 folks have officially declared themselves interested in this freebie deal - thus, there's still some way to go before we pass the RAGE HD threshold.

Ninja Fishing Review

Sit back,  relax, and let the fattest ninja since Chris Farley aid you in the unique art of Ninja Fishing. It's a simple addictive title that consists of four phases. First is navigating your fishing line as far down as it will go, avoiding all the fish by tilting your iPhone. Then either when you've reached the bottom or accidentally snagged a fish, your line comes up again, and now it's time to grab up to twenty five of the largest, juiciest pieces of sea life the waters near M…

Tap Along To 50 Songs From Fox TV's Glee on iPhone

She's just a small town girl, living in a lonely world; She took the midnight train... Just one of the tens of tens of classic pop anthems the cast of Fox TV phenomenon Glee has reinterpreted / mutilated over the past two seasons. And now, iPhone gamers get the chance to tap along in time to their heart's content to these 'Gleeful' reinterpretations / mutilations of Lady Gaga's and Journey's hits. Tap Tap Glee is Tapulous's newest rhythm-action game for Apple's mobile marvel, following in the relatively recent footsteps of Honolulu balladeer Bruno Mars's tie-in. Tap Tap Glee's soundtrack comprises 50 tracks - all, natch, taken from the series - though only five of these cover versions ar…


Cut the Rope: Experiments Review

Review ZeptoLab UK Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Cut the Rope: Experiments Review

Although technically the third outing for Cut the Rope on the App Store, Experiments is the first solo release for ZeptoLab giving it a very similar parallel to the release of Angry Birds Seasons by Rovio last year. However, instead of simply adding a thematic spin on things, Experiments adds to the world by not only introducing players to a new character (The Professor), but also by switching up the puzzles with timing-based challenges to test your skills with new and old contraptions…

Get Puzzle Agent and Its Sequel For iPhone On the Cheap

Telltale Games’s well-regarded Puzzle Agent adventure series has been slashed in price on iPhone until 11th August, with the most recent of the two games also spruced up via an update. The first Puzzle Agent wasn’t half bad at all, earning itself a 4 out of 5 badge here on AppSpy In the sequel, players retake the reins of detective Nelson Tethers, pointing, clicking, and sleuthing their way around the village of Scoggins. Whilst the game has received the obligatory tweaks and refinements in this latest update, it has also been made compatible with the iPhone 3G, meaning those too tight / poor to own an current-gen Apple mobile can also get in on the puzzle-solving action.

Top 3 iOS Games of July 2011

A transcript has been included after the video - THAR BE SPOILERS DOWN THAR! (but also links for those after a quick look at each review!) July has brought us some interesting games to look at, though despite having some hotly anticipated releases, it has been quite hard to dig through and find the titles that truly shine. This has been made harder still thanks to the return of Dave Flodine as a reviewer, but only because I had to play each game again to bring the list down to its final order. Not that I'm complaining, mind you, especially when we're talking about the Top 3 iPhone Games for July 2011. 3. Gesundheit! (Konami) Being set within a charming, children's book inspired…
