Everybody Hates NASA: Pro Review

Review Inert Soap By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Everybody Hates NASA: Pro Review

Sometimes you have to wonder if you get what you deserve when you make a wish and it's eventually answered. I often wish for developers to try their hands at something whacky and out of the ordinary, if only to give me something interesting to review. Everybody Hates NASA by Inert Soap could certainly be defined as 'whacky' and 'out of the ordinary' and while it's not a perfect game, the way in which it seems to be able to mash seemingly disparate elements together is impressive. At i…

Creatures & Castles Review

Review hiive By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Creatures & Castles Review

Do you fancy yourself to have a steady hand and god-like skills of timing? If so you might just be one of the few people Creatures & Castles by hiive intends to target as you plunge in to the labyrinthine depths of this puzzle title.The premise is a simple one that's easy to get behind as you're presented with room after room of maze-like designs that need to be explored to collect a treasure before exiting the level. The catch is that you can only move on a path that you have draw…

Sonic Spinball Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Sonic Spinball Review

Sonic the Hedgehog had an odd period in his career where he was placed in all sorts of strange predicaments and situations that have (in retrospect) been considered fairly questionable. Though strangely enough, the idea of Sonic in a pinball game wasn't much of a stretch and in 1993 gamers were given Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball (or Sonic Spinball as it's now known on the App Store) by SEGA. While regular pinball titles were often content with simple physics engines and skill-shots to…

Zombie Trailer Park Review

Review Ninja Kiwi By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Zombie Trailer Park Review

Zombie Trailer Park by Ninja Kiwi is (for those who haven't come across it before) another free Flash title that has made the jump to the App Store. Interestingly, the game has been converted with almost no changes (barring the interface) and to compensate for this the price tag is a surprisingly reasonable '$0'. The game itself is a fairly typical castle defense setup, with cash being earned over time and units being purchased to run blindly in to their opposition until you've pushed…

Farts VS Zombies Review

Review Mutant By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Farts VS Zombies Review

I'll be perfectly honest here and say that I had no idea what to expect when I jumped in to Farts VS Zombies by Mutant Games. Was it meant to be ironic? Was it simply a cash-in on keywords? In short I asked myself, 'How self-aware is this game?' and the answer was fairly clear. It knows exactly what it's doing and I'm not sure that manages to make the experience any better. You'll have to take control of Colonel John Farter (resident Chuck Norris look-alike) as he creates multicolored…

Trouble in Tin Town Review

Review From the Future, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Trouble in Tin Town Review

With so much variety available on the App Store, it's odd that more turn-based strategies haven't cropped up. Developer Jovian Minds has clearly seen an opportunity in the lack of strategic titles and has paired their game with a retinue of witty wind-up toys that are just itching to jump in to a fight. Though perhaps calling it 'strategy' is stretching things a little bit as the game often boils down to punching ranged units with your melee units and shooting melee units with your ra…

Pocket HalfPipe Review

Review NaffRobot By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Pocket HalfPipe Review

It may not be the next 'Angry Birds', but Pocket HalfPipe by NaffRobot is the kind of casual title that balances on a fine edge of skill and simplicity, resulting in a game that's immediately addictive even without the need for overly-complicated gameplay or multiple levels. There are three competitive modes along with a fourth free-skating mode to play in and the goal is to simply beat the score that has been set, unlocking a new item of clothing, skateboard or even a special move to…

DeathFall Review

Review Riverman Media LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
DeathFall Review

If you haven't heard the term 'ear worm' before, let me explain: Have you ever had a moment when you realize you have a small loop of a song stuck in your head and it's almost impossible to get your brain to skip over it? That's an 'ear worm'. DeathFall by Jurgis Games is the gaming equivalent of an 'ear worm' and while there could be something grand beyond the walls of this game, you feel like you're stuck in some never ending loop that never attempts to break free. The journey you t…

The Blocks Cometh Review

UPDATE: It has come to our attention that this game may have been produced without the consent of Halfbot (developers of the original free Flash game of the same name). Until this is resolved, please support the original developers by holding off on your purchase of this title and feel free to check out the original at: http://www.halfbot.com/?page_id=279 Finding that next great addictive Arcade title isn't always an easy task, but searching for games that boil down other games to the…

Block Rogue Review

Review Buzz Monkey Software By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Block Rogue Review

Block Rogue by Buzz Monkey Software isn't your typical Sokoban-style puzzler, but not because you play the game in some unique way. You'll find yourself hitting switches, pushing blocks and rolling boulders much like any similar puzzler, but for your little character there's a clear motivation for attempting to complete all 325 levels. That's right, 325 levels - and we're not talking easy levels either; you'll have to avoid the usual set of problems that will force you to slap the und…

Top 10 iOS Games of 2010 - AppSpy Edition

Toplist By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Top 10 iOS Games of 2010 - AppSpy Edition

Hi everyone! With the holiday period having come to a close we've finally made some time to let our readers know what we consider to be the best releases of 2010. As with almost any 'top list' it should be taken with a grain of salt, but to clarify things further this is more of a personal expression of what rocked my world and what I believe is important in terms of the growth of the iPhone as a serious handheld gaming device. SPOILER NOTE: I've placed a text transcript of the audio below the video. If you'd prefer not to spoil things, don't scroll down too far ;) 2010 was, for iOS device users, a crazy year packed with highlights that ranged from incredible highs to disturbing…


Space Hedgehogs vs. Space Cacti Review

Review Sad Cat Software By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Space Hedgehogs vs. Space Cacti Review

Attempting to improve on the elegant simplicity of Galcon Labs' real-time Risk style gameplay is no easy task, but titles like Civilizations Wars and Modern Conflict have certainly held their ground. Space Hedgehogs vs. Space Cacti by Sad Cat Software adds a 4X (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate) like features to the mix, and while it's not Master of Orion, you'll still need to outwit and outplay your opponents while balancing your resources for research. Forces can be deployed to…

Mad Skills Motocross Review

Review Turborilla By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Mad Skills Motocross Review

If you never had a chance to play the classic motocross racer 'Excitebike' back in the day then you may have missed out on a genuinely (and I'm sorry to say it) exciting racer that challenged players with its semi-realistic style that rewarded players that carefully managed their bikes instead of simply smashing the accelerator. Mad Skills Motocross by Turborilla feels like a serious revival of this classic racer, pitting players against AI opponents while using minimalistic controls t…

Garage Inc. Review

Sure you may have powdered a few noses, treated a few people to spas and served them tasty food in the past, but have you pulled up your sleeves to repair some vintage vehicles? Garage Inc. by Breakthrough Entertainment is a management style title with a classic twist and you'll have to work heard to break out of your debt with the local mobsters. After taking a loan from his cousin, Angelo Marito opens up a garage in Chicago and shortly thereafter is told about where that money came…

Twisted Fates Review

Review Lewis Pugh By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Twisted Fates Review

Every now and then a game crops up that serves as a reminder of how powerful it can be to break up a game in to short, challenging chunks. Those who have played games like N+ or Super Meat Boy will know what I'm talking about and while Twisted Fates by Leuvsion isn't as polished or as challenging as other titles, its unique style of platforming is served well by the bite-sized levels. One thing that fails to escape notice is the cartoonish Manga-inspired visuals featuring well-endowed…
