Contre Jour Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Contre Jour Review

Mayhap we'll never see the end of this trend of cute-sy characters combined with puzzle gameplay dominating the store, but one thing's for sure, Chillingo has a vested interest in keeping the motif rolling along. While Contre Jour by Mokus may not be as traditionally cartoonish and colorful as recent titles, it fits the template nicely with its scowling, yet playful main character (who happens to be a giant eyeball) as you manipulate his world to get him to each exit. If you've played…

Modern Combat 2 On Sale, Modern Combat 3 Inbound

Modern Combat 2 On Sale, Modern Combat 3 Inbound

Do you recall Jigsaw - sorry, me - inviting you to play a fun and exciting game last Wednesday? Yes, you do: it was called "Guess Gameloft's next FPS on iPhone", and the only clue supplied was a military-based piece of artwork. See, you do remember. As it transpires, the French studio weren't actually teasing a forthcoming first- or third-person shooter with their 'Join the resistance' tagline, 99c dog tag, and upturned round of bullets. No, instead, those little Gameloft teases were referring to an existing title: Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus. So, after all of that speculation and hype, Gameloft and I are delighted to inform you that their 5-star modern-day blast-'em-up has been redu…

Gobble Up Action-Platformer Muffin Knight On 1st September

Gobble Up Action-Platformer Muffin Knight On 1st September

What do Angry Mob Games's four-star twin-stick shooter Guerrilla Bob and their upcoming iPhone platformer Muffin Knight have in common, please? Pace. Lots of it. In fact, to describe the wise-cracking antics of the aforementioned Bob as anything less than 'frantic' would be to lie. (Plus, 'frantic antics' has a nice ring to it.) Muffin Knight, in all fairness, doesn't feature quite as much bullet-hell blasting as Guerrilla Bob, but more than compensates in other areas. For starters, the story of a young boy transformed into a knight by an aggrieved cake-baking fairy is, well, unique. The gameplay twist in which the accursed whippersnapper changes into a different creature every time he…

Edge Extended Now Available In All Good Apple Stores

Mobigame promised that their semi-sequel Edge Extended would be heading to iPhone "this summer". And with only six days to spare, that promise was upheld. If you never got around to playing the original Edge puzzle game, let me explain... From an isometric perspective, your mission is to drag an oddly characterful cube around a series of levels to the exit, taking extreme care not to fall of the paths. In Edge Extended, there are 44 levels, in fact, complemented by 23 perfectly pitched minimalist tunes and a few new gameplay mechanics. Those in possession of an iPhone 4 will appreciate that the French developers have included Retina display support in this cube-shifting experience. Tho…

Review Mobigame By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
EDGE Extended Review

The lead up to the release of EDGE Extended by Mobigame has been an interesting one frought with some legal battles that, while amusing in some ways, has been frustrating to witness as an external observer (let alone as a company caught up in it). Thankfully the sequel to the original EDGE title has been worth the wait and fans of the original have more than a few surprises in store for them. Much as the name suggests, EDGE Extended bolsters the original gameplay with some new power-u…

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
SPY mouse Review

Sometimes it's easy to forget that Firemint, the developers of the Real Racing series for iOS have another game they're rather famous for - a little line-drawing App called Flight Control. While racing has its fans, Flight Control made perfect use of the touch-screen interface to create a fun game based around the pressures of multitasking. So what if Firemint decided to boil the concept down in to something a bit more bite-sized? What if you were rewarded for your puzzle solving skil…

Spy Mouse Sneaks Onto the New Zealand App Store

Spy Mouse Sneaks Onto the New Zealand App Store

Over in New Zealand, lucky iPhone punters already have the opportunity to download Spy Mouse, Firemint's line-drawing puzzler that we had our beady eyes on last month. No worries, though, for the rest of the world will be able to join in the cheese-grabbing, cat-avoiding fun later tonight. Once the game touches down in your neck of the woods, you'll find 72 stages (spread across six different game worlds), loads of achievements, and a host of secret levels. Spy Mouse retails for 99c, but if you fancy grabbing it for free, you can enter Firemint's ongoing competition here. Or if you happen to be a regular patron of Starbucks in the US, Spy Mouse will be offered as part of the iTunes 'Pick…


Rogue Sky Review

Rogue Sky Review

I'm not sure how I feel about controlling evil-looking anthropomorphic hot-air baloons as they pummel their way back home, but then again at least it's a side-step from the usual cute-sy content you see on the App Store. Rogue Sky by Pebble Bug Studios and Chillingo tests your ability to not only navigate maze-like environments, but also your ability to destroy your opponents in the most efficient ways possible to score it large at the end of the level. You're only given two controls…

Review Godzilab By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
iBlast Moki 2 Review

Despite my time at AppSpy, I can't claim to have 'played them all' (the games that is) and as such when a sequel like iBlast Moki 2 from Godzilab drops out of the blue it's hard to know if you're looking at an improvement or just an update. Thankfully it's not hard to use the 'way-back-when' machine to make a comparison and suffice to say if you enjoyed the first title, you're going to have a literal blast with the new one. What makes iBlast Moki 2 so much fun is the way in which play…

Solve The Mystery In New iPhone Puzzler 1112 episode 03

The mysterious adventures of Louis Everett in Agharta Studio's 1112 puzzle series on iPhone continue today, as the third instalment is released on iPhone. Expect to learn more about the causes of your bizarre headaches and strange dreams during your and Louis's reintroduction to the town of Jalonsville. This latest chapter in Louis's ongoing narrative will apparently be longer than the first two put together, so hopefully it should answer any questions you might have had. Hopefully. The second episode in this gripping tale earned 5 stars from AppSpy on review, so the quality of the storytelling is beyond dispute. Find out if 1112 episode 03 can match its predecessor's superb script now…

Review Colorbox By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 3 months ago
Candy Boy Review

Candy Boy is what would happen if Dr. Mario had been a platformer instead of a puzzle game. Casper finds that his beloved Candy Land has been infested by horrific candy hungry worms. It's now up to him to use the power of sugary treats to send these parasites to oblivion. Each level consists of worms of different colors nestled amongst candy of different colors. Armed with a small supply of candy himself, Casper needs to place the blocks so that three or more of the same color matches…

DEO Review

Review eVeek, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
DEO Review

Indie games often get an unfair reputation of being able to 'get away' with providing less content, gameplay, diminished visuals or audio simply because they're not a major studio. This leads to fans and critics talking about the 'experience' as being worthwhile as opposed to every other basic feature of the game being worthwhile and as such the word has been tarnished as it's now synonymous with being a videogame hipster.What does this have to do with DEO by Strapped to a Meteor? Well…

Cubes vs. Spheres Review

War is hell and there are times when decisions need to be made that may be questionable, but this is about survival; survival against the evil Cube hordes. So yes, it may not be entirely 'fair' to exploit their attraction to 'pink' cubes, but dammit soldier, when they're breathing down your neck you won't have time to complain! Cubes vs. Spheres by ShockPanda Games is ostensibly another first-person turret based shooter - albeit with flick controls - and you'd be forgiven for wonderin…

Ride Some Crazy Waves With Eddie The Pig on iPhone

Kelly Slater, Duke Kahanamoku, Johnny Utah: all legendary figures in the surfing world. To that Hall of Fame, we shall soon be adding Eddie, Eddie the Pig. I'm convinced. Eddie's the star of DnD Studios's ePig Surf, a casual, tilt-based, 99c adventure in which you steer the surfing swine over the thrashing waves. Being an amiable little grunter, Eddie has acquired a huge number of aquatic friends on his boarding travels over the summer. Unfortunately for our favourite squealer, any physical contact from the local dolphins, turtles, and octopi will result in a wipeout. Oh, and should Eddie bump into an inconveniently placed island or whirlpool, that's Game Over, too. One thing Eddie wil…
