Ninja Fishing Review

Review Gamenauts By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 3 months ago
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, 3 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

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. Puz…

Top 3 iOS Games of July 2011

Toplist By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
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…

Hector: Badge of Carnage Episode 2 Sleuthing Onto App Store This Autumn

Calling all detectives, this is an APB. Be on the lookout for the second episode in the Hector: Badge of Carnage detective series. It's lurking somewhere in the iPhone universe. Developers Straandlooper have reported that it is now locked down for an autumn release and is inbound on your position. So, you'll want to apprehend Episode 2 as soon as possible then. We hear it goes by the name Senseless Acts of Justice, and if you're playing this straight, it's going to be on your most-wanted list (I am so sorry about this) right up until release. What's that? Some of you sorry officers don't know what Hector: Badge of Carnage is? Alright, here's the skinny. Hector's a two-dimensional advent…


Pirate Gunner HD Review

Review Black Pearl Games Limited By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 3 months ago
Pirate Gunner HD Review

Avast me hearties! It's another pirate themed game on the iPhone! Fear not you lovers of swashbuckling and buried treasure for this isn't just a simple attempt to cash in on the pirate craze (though I imagine that's what the developers had in mind), this is actually a really well made puzzle action game. Like the title suggests, you are a pirate gunner, manning the cannons on Captain Red Beard's ship. As you come across other pirate vessels, the navy, and even giant octopuses, it's up…

Dice Soccer! Review

Review LambdaMu Games By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 3 months ago
Dice Soccer! Review

It's finally happened! The pairing you were waiting for. The fast paced action of soccer combined with the slow methodical tension of a dice roll. I guess both games require luck but while an odd pairing, Dice Soccer is a pretty addictive title. You are the manager of a soccer team. Starting in a training camp you have to win or draw matches to earn enough stars to move up the ranks and compete in the big leagues. You have three lines of players. Three forwards, three defense, and a g…

SHIFT 2 Unleashed Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
SHIFT 2 Unleashed Review

Sometimes, just sometimes it hurts a little when you get excited about a sequel only to realize you've bought the same game you've bought a dozen times before only with a handful of additions and a rearranged interface. It's nothing new and the concept of 'yearly sequels' has long since entered in to gaming culture as a sort of in-joke, with SHIFT 2 Unleashed adding itself to the pile of games that fail to excite. In the Need for Speed series, SHIFT represents a sort of middle-ground…

Jack of All Tribes Deluxe Review

Review G5 Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
Jack of All Tribes Deluxe Review

Trying to untangle the weaved mess that is the birth and growth of certain sub-genres of games can be a daunting task, especially when popular casual titles take to mixing RTS, Strategy and Puzzle elements (along with a dash of luck) in order to create their addicting gameplay. Things get even more complicated when you begin to ponder a game like Jack of All Tribes by G5 Entertainment and Divo Games as it could easily be considered a casual RTS in the style of games like The Settlers,…

Gesundheit! Review

Gesundheit! Review

The motivation for your character in Gesundheit is told through one of the most amusing little pieces of intro animation I’ve watched in a while. As the runt of a litter of pigs, your allergies ostracize you from the rest of the group... that is until your village is attacked by monsters. Now it's up to you to use the power of snot to get rid of the monsters, and save everyone. The goal of each level is to capture the monsters. This is accomplished by leading them into traps whe…

Review BIG BAD BRUSH inc. By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 3 months ago
Big Sticky Review

Big Sticky tells a very familiar video game tale. Your princess has been kidnapped, and it's your job to get her back (plus all the other princesses that have been kidnapped as well). As Sticky the purple Frog Prince, you travel through treacherous worlds level by level, collecting roses, reaching the exit, and doing it all with the power of your incredible tongue. This game is all about the swinging mechanics. You tap a surface to shoot your tongue out at it. Upon hitting it, Sticky…

Silent Ops Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 3 months ago
Silent Ops Review

Thanks to movies, TV shows and video games there's a glamorous view of being a spy (even if it does mean enduring a bit of torture now and then). The fantasy plays on the idea of being fiercely independent and self-sufficient - surviving against the odds even when they're stacked heavily against you. Ubisoft are no stranger to the cloak and dagger world of espionage and Gameloft has in turn brought Splinter Cell to the App Store, but it's clear there was more creative gas left in the t…

Horrid Henry Movie Tie-In Catapults Onto iPhone

Horrid Henry Movie Tie-In Catapults Onto iPhone

Some of you may know Horrid Henry through his almost never-ending series of books, movies, and inspirational lectures. I know him through the worst DS game of all time: Horrid Henry's Horrid Adventure. I have played this game. It is Superman 64 bad. Now, the same developers have come out with an iPhone game. Yayyyy! Comprising three separate mini-games, Horrid Henry's Horrid App takes its cue from the recent live-action film. There's an Angry Birds-style catapulting section, where you soak Moody Margaret with a water balloon; a dressing up game; and a standard obstacle-dodging platformer. This latest addition to the Horrid Henry canon is out now for $2.99. It can't be any worse than the…
