ISUD : Bullet Hell Action !!! Review

Review Suwitcha Sugthana By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
ISUD : Bullet Hell Action !!! Review

Recently an adaption of Kenta Cho's 'rRootage' was released on the App Store and it seems surprising that developer Pencil Logic would choose to release their title ISUD (It Shoots, You Dodge) so soon after. Much like rRootage, ISUD is an abstract shooter, focusing on the gameplay of dodging waves of bullet patterns while destroying enemies that change after each death. The controls are certainly simple enough and players can move their pixel-sized ship around the screen by swiping th…

Pocket Frogs Review

Review NimbleBit LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Pocket Frogs Review

As entries in to the 'freemium' model of games go, Pocket Frogs by NimbleBit has a unique charm of its own. Instead of a farm or a castle to play with, you'll need to breed and take care of your collection of frogs, sharing and cataloging each of the 10,000+ frogs while maintaining multiple habitats to keep them all happy. OK you don't have to collect EVERY frog, but once you've started your journey in to breeding these beautiful creatures you'll start checking your way off the game…

TIME CRISIS 2ND STRIKE Review

Review NAMCO BANDAI Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
TIME CRISIS 2ND STRIKE Review

Terrorists and evil-doers around the world are at large, planning their secret evil plans to do evil things, but thankfully the world has Giorgio Bruno on its side and his one-man cavalcade of destruction will put all the wrongs right again. This is Time Crisis 2nd Strike. The first game from Namco Networks hit the App Store over a year ago and while it wasn't the prettiest of games it still managed to work well for iDevices at the time. Since then the game has undergone a few superfi…

The Sims 3 Ambitions Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
The Sims 3 Ambitions Review

See, this is why I don't play The Sims; I should know by now Electronic Arts have tuned their addictive gameplay to an almost demonic level and try as I might it's hard to know when to put your iPhone down. At least a low-battery notice helps somewhat! As an adaption of the second expansion pack from The Sims 3 this title is all about developing the career and life choices of one particular Sim. After choosing between some fairly standard clothing and appearance options you can start…

Slideshot 2 Review

Review mschomerus By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Slideshot 2 Review

Slideshot 2 by mschomerus is a puzzle title that is simple in theory, but incredibly challenging in practice. Then again, maybe that's what's so appealing about this dastardly puzzler. Each level presents players with a handful of tubes that can be slid around the screen either only up and down or left and right. The aim is to create a sequence of tubes that will allow a ball to travel in and out of the screen while passing through every one. This results in one of two problems for th…

Guggle Review

Review Faraway Frontiers, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Guggle Review

Guggle is a bubble and you need to help him collect magical orbs in order to save the kingdom from doom. This puzzle maze title from Faraway Frontiers may not feature a compelling story, but it pulls no punches what-so-ever when it comes to the gameplay. This isn't a game for the feint of heart as you'll need to flip and turn your iDevice a full 360 degrees to move Guggle around the screen. Guggle will constantly move up (or down depending on your settings) and rotating changes this d…

HellJump 2: New Adventures Review

Review SoftGames By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
HellJump 2: New Adventures Review

HellJump 2: New Adventures by SoftGames baffles me a little bit. While it's easy enough to merely say it's just another vertical jumping title, it wouldn't be taking in to account the rather beautiful visuals that have gone in to the game. But regardless of this, HellJump 2 shows no meaningful gameplay improvements over the original and that is what confuses me. For those not yet familiar with vertical jumping titles, all you need to do is keep bouncing your character as high as possi…

Burger Queen Review

Review Crecat Soft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Burger Queen Review

I'm sure there's no way that 'Burger Queen' is trying to reference anything other than the fact that the daughter of a man who owns a large fast-food chain is now taking control of the company, a 'queen of the burgers' if you will. Yeah, I'm sure that's what Crecat Soft meant. If the App Store icon didn't give it away, this is a management style game of the fast-food variety and you'll need to ensure that all of your customers are served in a timely manner to make ridiculous amounts o…

Ravaged by War Review

Review Lambda Creative LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Ravaged by War Review

I'm partial to the odd tower defense (TD) title now and then and even though I've been playing them since I discovered them in Warcraft 3 it's a genre I can safely return to as it's a fairly safe bet as games go. Ravaged By War has thrown its lot in with the big boys on the App Store and despite its interesting theme the game does little to add to this already flooded genre. But this isn't usually a bad thing, because if other TD fans are like me they'll dip their toes in now and then…

Ace Chopper Rescue Review

Review MystoneGame Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Ace Chopper Rescue Review

If you're going to make a Choplifter-style game it's going to take more than a decent artistic direction and sadly Ace Chopper Rescue by MystoneGame didn't get much further than that. In order to go about your business of rescuing people from a ravaged war zone you'll need to get used to the game's one and only control scheme, tilting to maneuver your helicopter up, down and around the level, while buttons provide you with a retractable ladder and a gun. The ladder is used to pick up…


Milk My Unicorn Review

Review Splashworks.com Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Milk My Unicorn Review

Today we're keeping things short and sweet here at AppSpy and what a better game for keeping things on the move than Milk My Unicorn by Splashworks. When you get right down to it, Milk My Unicorn is just another 'Simon Says' title and players are given the opportunity to demonstrate their recall skills by pulling the teats of various animals (fictitious or otherwise) while doing so. Once you've conquered a specific animal you'll unlock a 'free play' mode to milk them at your own leisu…


War of the Gods Review

Review EASY Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
War of the Gods Review

War of the Titans by EASY is a turn-based strategy that tries to play with the formula, removing a lot of control from the player in order to streamline the experience and while this is commendable, the result is something that feels too loose to really call 'strategic'. There are only two controllable mechanics in the game itself, with players being able to move their units forward and should they have enough cash, hiring enemies to bulk up their forces. The ability to 'buy' enemies…
