Stoopid Sandwich Review

Review NoodlFroot By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Stoopid Sandwich Review

UPDATE: A recent update has added Game Center support, giving Stoopid Sandwich a bit more shelf-life as you compete against others around the world for high scores and as such this eliminates one of the concerns highlighted below. Stoopid Sandwich by London-based developers NoodlFroot started out as more of a prototype for another concept they're working on, but after having so much fun with something this simple they decided to share it with the world. And I have to say I'm glad they…

Vikings Can Fly! Review

Review Forge 11 By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Vikings Can Fly! Review

We've seen flightless birds from the Antarctic and New Zealand struggle against their natures in an attempt to soar, but what reward do they get outside of the ability to fly? Sure it's what they wanted, but Bjorn from Vikings Can Fly doesn't just want to fly, he wants to fly to capture the heart of a beautiful Valkyrie. Initially there's a lot of similarities between Forge 11's title and those that have come before it, however once you've pushed through the initial stages things star…

BATTLEFIELD: BAD COMPANY™ 2 Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
BATTLEFIELD: BAD COMPANY™ 2 Review

With the quality of first-person shooters on the App Store reaching higher levels with each iteration, it's getting harder to justify playing the half-finished attempts hoping to cash in on the new wave. BATTLEFIELD: BAD COMPANY™ 2 by EA is by no means a weak franchise, but with the series being dominated by its strong multiplayer features it's a shame to see that this title has seemingly been released before its time. Thankfully the single-player campaign holds up much of this…

HellGore Review

Review Rapid Turtle Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
HellGore Review

When your soul has been taken by 'Evil' and you're stuck in a medieval representation of Hell, I'd imagine I'd probably go on a killing rampage as well. iRequiem by Rapid Turtle Games appeals to those after fast action-oriented gameplay with a scoop-and-a-half of disturbing visuals and gore to keep up appearances and to ensure that anyone watching over your shoulder immediately places you in the 'don't give sharp objects' corner of their minds. There are 55 currently available levels…

Super Mega Worm Vs Santa Review

Review Deceased Pixel LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Super Mega Worm Vs Santa Review

If you haven't already taken the opportunity to decimate a horde of rednecks Tremors-style in Super Mega Worm by Deceased Pixel already, fear not, because now you can trash the North Pole's festive forces in the seasonal release of Super Mega Worm Vs Santa. In what essentially amounts to a Christmas-themed reskin of the original title, players can pick up where they left off in the original monster-worm title by gliding through the earth and the air to munch on elves, penguins, ginger…

Dungeon Defenders: Second Wave Review

Review Trendy Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Dungeon Defenders: Second Wave Review

Editors Note (Nov 9, 2011): Dungeon Defenders holds, dubiously, one of the most hotly contended scores on AppSpy.com if only because I, the reviewer of the game, wanted to love it to bits. At the time Dungeon Defenders was a whirlwind of magical catchphrases that made my inner-gamer tingle with excitement: Unreal Engine graphics, Tower Defense Gameplay, Hero Defense gameplay, Online Co-Op, Persistent and Personalized Character Development. What wasn't to like about this game? Sad…

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light Review

In what was decidedly an odd new direction for the Lara Croft series, Guardian of Light by SQUARE ENIX didn't exactly wow audiences on the PC/PS3/360, but it definitely turned some heads with its twin-stick inspired gameplay and co-op features. Not to be outdone, the App Store version was recently released and while it's not as pretty as its console cousins it still feels at home on the touch-based platform. Lara Croft has gone and disturbed an ancient evil once again (though in her d…

Review NTT Resonant Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Berzerk Ball  Review

Everybody needs an outlet for stress at some point or another and even if you're a relatively stress-free individual, I'm sure there's a dark corner of your mind that wouldn't mind seeing something nasty happen to those that frustrate you. Berzerk Ball by NTT Resonant and Berzerk Studio provides a near perfect method of stress relief by giving you the chance to punt Comeau the annoying geek across the Heavy Metal inspired wastelands of Berzerk Land to watching him spin, bounce, explode…

Skycat and the starchildren Review

Review Frostware AB By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Skycat and the starchildren Review

If you haven't experienced an endless runner of some variety by now, then I'd be quite surprised as you almost can't fall over for the lack of one attempt or another at the gameplay mechanic. 'Skycat and the starchildren' by Frostware takes the idea and instead of one large endless level you'll play through a series of pint-sized time-trials to test your skills with the game's controls and to rescue Skycat's hapless friend, Fatcat. Holding down the jump button for an extended period w…

Avenging Spirit Review

Review DotEmu By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Avenging Spirit Review

Avenging Spirit, otherwise known as Phantasm in Japan, was perhaps one of the most curious concepts to come out of 1991 (and this is the same year players played as a robotic cod; helped lemmings to escape traps; and fought criminal overlords from Shadaloo on the streets). In what is to be the first in a series of team-ups between DotEmu and JALECO, you'll be able to possess the criminals who killed you and kidnapped your girlfriend in an attempt to learn the secrets of the spirit real…

Shadow Guardian Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Shadow Guardian Review

There's an adage that goes along the lines of 'show, don't tell' and while it's applied more often to films, it's still quite relevant to video games. Gameloft clearly had this in mind when developing Shadow Guardian, but with so many points of exposition or at least explanation left up in the air, players are left with no choice but to roll with the punches. Initially players are placed in the roll of Jason Call, our so-deemed hero for the story, in a series of flashbacks to explain…

Hook Worlds Review

Review Rocketcat Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Hook Worlds Review

Rocketcat Games has gained no small amount of fame thanks to introducing gamers to the adventures of the Hook brothers (Jake and Jakob) and quite a few of their friends, however for some the appeal was eventually lost once the brutal later stages of Hook Champ and Super Quick Hook were unlocked. Hook Worlds is the next and possibly final hook-racer (at least for now), however instead of grinding your way through increasingly complex levels, players can dive in to one of up to four uniq…

N.O.V.A. 2 - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
N.O.V.A. 2 - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Review

A year ago the first title in the N.O.V.A. series managed to stun audiences with its incredibly sharp visuals, paired with excellent near-console quality gameplay that may have felt slavish to its inspirations, but still managed to impress regardless of this. The sequel is much the same, though the inclusion of a larger campaign; career-based online multiplay; and smarter AI opponents shows that Gameloft are serious about taking this game to the next level. Those who have played Gamel…

Aralon: Sword and Shadow HD Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Aralon: Sword and Shadow HD Review

There are few times I feel I could safely say this at the beginning of a review, but if you're a fan of Western RPGs (in particular titles in the vein of Elder Scrolls), then you really should take the time to pick up Aralon: Sword and Shadow HD by Crescent Moon Games and Galoobeth Games. But, I digress and submit that while there are frayed edges to this comprehensive RPG, the scope and depth of this game goes so far beyond the regular pick up and play titles that it's a small wonder…

Real Racing 2 Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Real Racing 2 Review

While I could go on about the amazing visuals, the licensed vehicles and the clever career system of Real Racing 2 by Firemint, the thing that stands out the most is the online multiplayer. Pitching in to a race with 15 other players can be exhilarating and outside of the occasional disconnected player it's a frantic environment to test out your skills. The controls for Real Racing 2 are highly customizable, with options varying between tilt and touch based steering; automatic and man…
