Awaken the dragon in huge Infinity Blade III update on December 19th

Chair has just released details of next Infinity Blade III update, which will be coming to iPhone and iPad on December 19th. Titled Ausar Rising, the update will let you step back into the past by adding the castle from the first Infinity Blade game as a playable area. According the developer, you'll also gain access to over 60 previously unseen items, and be able to natter to other warriors via an in-game chat system. Finally, two new modes will be added to the menu: Survival Arena, and Deathless Quests. Oh, and you'll get to fight another dragon. So that's good. You'll won't be able to download the Ausar Rising update until December 19th, so we suggest you work on your dragon slayin…


The Room Two iPad Review

The Room Two iPad Review

There were few games released last year so perfectly tailored to touchscreen as The Room. Like the mysterious wooden box at the heart of the experience, the game was beautiful, intricate, tactile, and full of secrets. With The Room Two, Fireproof Games has opened the door, both literally and metaphorically, to another dimension of gameplay. Instead of making you focus your sleuthing skills on a single puzzle box, The Room Two has you flitting between numerous contraptions at once. And…

 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas | Hands-On

I won't waste your time with too much intro blurb. We all know why we're here. Rockstar has just released Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for iPhone and iPad. When the original game appeared on the PlayStation 2 back in 2004, it was the largest and most ambitious GTA experience ever commited to disc. Now, the folks at Rockstar have given their first Los Santos adventure a lick of paint, added some snazzy new shadows and reflections, and let it loose on the App Store. Here is a 10 minute video of me playing Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas: We will have a review for you shortly. If you can't wait for the AppSpy verdict, you can download Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for £4.99 / $…


Angry Birds celebrates its 4th birthday

Angry Birds celebrates its 4th birthday

Man, has it been four years already? To think that what has become one of the hottest games on the App Store was released around the same time as Appspy's launch (It was December 2009, but the actual date is kind of vague). Anyway, in celebration of its aviary powerhouse, Rovio is adding fifteen new levels to the original game. Sure to the dedicated fan, it won't take you long to plough through them, but it's the thought that counts. Happy Birthday Angry Birds!  (For a treat, go and have a look at our review. It's back when I provided the video voiceover, and it was penned by a young upstart named Andrew) :)…

Luxuria Superbia Review

Review Tale of Tales By Dave Flodine, 4 months ago
Luxuria Superbia Review

More and more, games designers are attmepting to include 'mature' content in their word. Usually, this translates into violence, swearing, and the inclusion of scantily-clad, impossibly proportioned women. However, that kind of mature content is often delivered in a fairly adolescent way. When playing Luxuria Superbia we felt that we were playing a truly adult game, one that might even make you feel a little uncomfortable. Luxuria Superbia is a game of touch and sensation. Patience p…

Trials Frontier | Hands-On

Trials Frontier | Hands-On

Though we've seen a few Trials-esque games make their way onto iOS - Motoheroz and Joe Danger leap immediately to mind - we haven't been able to play Redlynx's original motorbike stunt-racer on our mobiles.  Until now. As of today, Trials Frontier, the first official mobile instalment of the Trials franchise, is available to download from the Canadian App Store. It should be noted that this is a soft launch version of Trials Frontier, and does not necessarily represent the quality of the finished product. Still, these restricted releases generally give us a good idea of what to expect from the global release. With that caveat out of the way, we invite you to check out our Trials Fro…

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas out on iPhone and iPad tonight

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is hitting the UK and US App Stores tonight. Rockstar's ultra-ambitious first visit to San Andreas was the biggest GTA game ever to be released when it was released on the PS2 back in 2004.  The gangstar epic follows the story of CJ, a streetwise kid who returns to Los Santos following the death of his mother. Naturally, as this is a GTA game, it isn't long before the grieving process ends and the bullets start flying. The iOS version, which will run on both iPhone and iPad, has been smoothed and improved for those unforgiving retina displays. Enhancements include remastered HD graphics, better lighting, and real time shadows and reflections. You'll a…

Freemium kart racer Angry Birds Go! now available from App Stores everywhere

The lights are green and the race is on - Rovio's new kart racer Angry Birds Go! is now available from App Stores worldwide. Instead of lobbing birds at pigs as we've all been programmed to do, anyone who download Angry Birds Go! will find themselves hurtling around a race track in a hastily battered-together go-kart.  Essentially a freemium take on the Mario Kart formula with added feathers, the game lets you upgrade your ride, race as both birds and pigs, and use special powers to give you the edge on the tarmac. Also, if you happen to have any of those Telepods from the Angry Birds Star Wars games, you can scan them into the game. Ever wanted to see Obi-wan race a pig in a…

Santa goes all Tomb Raider in festive Temple Run 2 update

Nothing says Christmas like a grubby archaeologist legging it down a narrow pathway with a priceless artifact stuffed into their belt pouch. Okay, that was a lie. There's nothing remotely Christmassy about Temple Run 2. Which is presumably why Imangi have been forced to artificially inject some festive cheer into its endless-runner sequel via the game's latest update. Now, provided you've downloaded the update, you will be able to jog merrily towards a sense of seasonal goodwill by taking control of Father Christmas himself. Quite what Santa's doing running away from a giant skull-faced monster we're not sure. But he's there nonetheless. Because it's Christmas. The update also lets you…

TinyCo and Fox are bringing The Griffins to iOS in new Family Guy game

Fox and TinyCo have revealed that they are working on a free-to-play mobile game based on Family Guy. According to Fox, the interactive version of Seth MacFarlane's hit animated sitcom will be coming to the App Store in 2014, and will allow players to explore the city of Quahog. Though the official character roster has yet to be announced, we do know that the city will be full of familiar faces from the TV series. The game will also feature a new story developed specifically for the project. Speaking to Polygon, TinyCo's Andrew Green revealed that resource management elements will play a part in the Family Guy game. However, he insists that the team is dialled-in on the game's narrative…

Oceanhorn developers '99 percent sure' there will be a sequel

Cornfox & Bros., the developer behind Zelda-like RPG Oceanhorn, is planning on expanding the game's universe, most likely via an iOS sequel. Though it's been less than a month since Oceanhorn appeared on the App Store, the game's creators are already looking to the future. And the future, it seems, contains more Oceanhorn. Speaking to sister site PocketGamer.biz, Cornfox & Bros. member Antti Viljamaa revealed that in addition to considering porting the game to other platforms, the team is planning new content which may allow Oceanhorn to break free from its traditional RPG mold. "Quite possibly, the future versions or sequels will give us room to experiment a little bi…

Galaxy Run Review

We should all know how the App Store works by now. A new game comes out, gains a lot of traction, and all of a sudden the store's virtual landscape is overrun with imitators. Considering how enjoyable last year's Run Roo Run was, it's surprising that the recently released Galaxy Run is one of only a few games we've seen approach its one-tap single screen platforming antics. It's up to the player to guide a stranded astronaut home via small doses of precision platforming. Each collecti…

Sometimes we wonder whether some games are named just to make videogame reviewers sound a bit silly. Continue?9876543210 is an iOS game about a videogame character who is living in digital purgatory, trying to cope the inevitability of his eventual deletion. Remember that cartoon series Reboot where the citizens of the computer town were sucked into videogames? And remember how if anyone was killed in a game, they disappeared to who knows where?

Mini Golf Mundo caters to your 3D mini golf needs

While 2D and 3D mini golf games are nothing new, there's just something about Mini Golf Mundo that caught my attention. Perhaps it's the texture of the holes, reminiscent of a certain Green Hill Zone, perhaps it's the use of bounce pads and teleporters, or perhaps it's the tranquil music alongside the abrupt interruption of the narrator each time you sink a hole. Check out the trailer and perhaps you'll understand what I mean... The game is available now in the App Store for $1.99 (AU). Play on the four courses alone, or with up to three friends. Since it's golf, it's only appropriate we have the links below. [App Store Link]…
