Review Alternative Shift By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
.Ascend Review

Ascend by Alternative Shift is an interesting, minimalistic title that challenges players to fly their way around the screen while avoiding the ever-persistent threat from fairies that don't enjoy being blown around. After spending a brief moment wrestling with the game's control scheme it became almost second nature to swipe and generate a small breeze to move around. An indicator provides you with the location of the next closest objective in your area, however as you collect more '…

Death Worm makes it to the AppStore.

News By Callum Webster, 3 years, 9 months ago
Death Worm makes it to the AppStore.

I had a lot of fun playing Super Mega Worm on my iPhone, so was quite happy to see the indie game Death Worm make its way to the platform. It's pretty much a polished version of SMW but with longer gameplay and some additional features. Surely worth checking out. Here's the YouTube preview: Features: - 45 levels on 3 different locations- 1 bonus mini-game- 30 enemy types- 3 worm types- Retina display support!- Game Center Leaderboards and Achievements! Get Death Worm for $0.99 on the AppStore!…


Zombigotchi Review

Review finkbom By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Zombigotchi Review

Tamagotchi was easily one of the first things I willingly tried to forget about the 90s, but it was hard to escape the madness of these egg-shaped fiends. However fate clearly has other plans for me as I now face Zombigotchi by finkbom and I've taken solace in the fact that the idea of having a pet zombie isn't exactly so bad. At first there's not a lot in the way of actual gameplay for Zombigotchi, or rather the act of stabbing buttons or stroking your zombie is really only a toy des…

CAPCOM ARCADE Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
CAPCOM ARCADE Review

If you spent any time at an arcade in the 80s or 90s or you have immense personal luck of having a classic arcade remaining open in your area, then you should already be familiar with the lineup of CAPCOM ARACDE as it sports a classic quartet of titles that are likely to have devoured your spare change in the past. Players can choose from four basic titles, opting to spend their in-game tokens on Street Fighter 2, Ghouls 'N Ghosts, 1942 or Commando. Three free tokens are handed out ev…

Doodle Lab101 Review

Review FunTribe By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Doodle Lab101 Review

The 'doodle' in Doodle Lab101 is a bit of a misnomer (at least in App Store terms) and instead of a game that features grid-paper backgrounds with sketch-art sprites you actually get to doodle to solve its whacky physics-based puzzles. It's easy to be overwhelmed by the help text for Doodle Lab101, but all of its concepts are slowly introduced over the 70 currently available levels to make sure you're not completely out of your depth. Your main goal is to deposit specific elements in…

Baseball Superstars® 2011 Pro Review

Review GAMEVIL USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Baseball Superstars® 2011 Pro Review

Sometimes it can be lonely at the top, but the Baseball Superstars® series from GAMEVIL has earned its position of dominance thanks to its in-depth and detailed baseball gameplay that remains lighthearted despite the intense management required to succeed. Their third outing (BS2011) is no less of a beast in terms of content, but additional refinements to the gameplay show that GAMEVIL aren't interested in resting on their laurels. The controls for BS2011 haven't seen much of a ch…

iSlash Review

Review Duello By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
iSlash Review

You've ninja'd fruit, you've samurai'd vegetables and more than likely you've cut some rope, but in iSlash by Duello Games you'll need to slash, chop and shave shapes down to impossible sizes to meet the game's exacting requirements. Well not entirely impossible, but when you reach the later stages you'll be thankful that the game provides an immediate outlet for stress - it's sort of like a bizarre two-fer-one deal. In each of the game's already blooming set of levels you'll need to…

Deep Deep Dungeon Review

Review iQubi Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Deep Deep Dungeon Review

Rogue-like's are a strange breed of RPGs that have managed to survive the test of time, thanks in part due to modern adaptions that gave rise to the loot-focused action-RPG genre. While Deep Deep Dungeon by iQubi may not have the same depth as a true rogue-like, nor even that of an action-RPG, it still manages to get its hooks in with the promise of new treasures and larger numbers. Each floor presents players with a randomized maze of paths interspersed with enemies and treasure. Bat…

Fragger Review

Review Miniclip.com By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Fragger Review

By popular demand (and because I can't believe AppSpy hasn't reviewed it already), I've finally delved the depths of Fragger by Miniclip and all we can say is that it's better to be late to the party then to never arrive. Fragger takes its own spin on the physics puzzler by challenging players to use their grenades in clever ways to bypass the defenses of their enemies. It's almost scary just how quickly I managed to slip in to and feel comfortable with the game's throwing controls. A…

LawnMowerKids Review

Review Dohi Sweden By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
LawnMowerKids Review

Outside of a few exceptions it has been hard to find a lot of line-drawing titles to be impressive thanks in part to their similarity. LawnMowerKids is one of these exceptions and instead of shuffling vehicles around to various stations you'll need to manage three kids as they take on the task of keeping the neighborhood tidy, one lawn at a time. Each of the kids feature unique traits that will help you to mow the lawns more efficiently, with Nancy mowing the largest area at the slowe…

Portaball Review

Review Bartosz Ciechanowski By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Portaball Review

There's no doubt that I've probably missed other attempts at re-conceptualizing Valve's seminal FPS puzzler Portal in to a top down puzzler, but Portaball by Bartosz Ciechanowski is one of the first I've come across and as mind-benders go it doesn't hold back on the challenge. You'll be slowly introduced to new objects over 50 currently available levels that will change the behavior of a frictionless ball as it bounces around the puzzle environment. Certain specific walls can have one…
