Chop Chop Ninja Free for Today!

Gamerizon's 2D platformer Chop Chop Ninja is free in the AppStore today as apart of the Free App a Day promotion. Platformers have had a rough time on the iphone.

The emporer's daughter has been cursed, and it is up to you to find the ingredients needed to save her! Read the Full Review! Watch our video review: Get the Game on iTunes!…

iJumpman Review

Review Andi McClure By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
iJumpman Review

In this day and age with our new fangled technologies and high processing power game systems, sometimes its nice to go back to basics. What's even nicer is if you go back to platforming and put a new spin on things. In iJumpman you control a man straight out of the Atari 2600 as he strives to jump over obstacles and find the exit. The most important aspect of a platformer to get right are the controls, and this is where iJumpman fails. There are two schemes, a touch scheme and buttons…

Dave says goodbye to Appspy

Well this is my last day as editor of Appspy.com I've had a fantastic time helping to launch this site. From developing the video reviews, to the review process itself, it's been a fulfilling experience. It's now time for me to move on and hand the reins over to the new editor, Andrew Nesvadba who will be ensuring that Appspy continues to grow, and becomes bigger and better. I'd like to thank everyone on the Appspy team for all their contributions to what I feel is quickly becoming one of the best iphone news and review sites on the web. I'd also like to thank all the fans from the website and our youtube channel for their interest and support. Finally a note to developers. I may not be r…

Fast and Furious: Adrenaline set for April Release

It has been confirmed that Fast and Furious: Adrenaline will be released on the AppStore sometime in April. Although some characters from the last game pop up, this new addition is promising to be completely different from the first instalment.

There will be four locations, five modes (Road Race, Time Trial, Cop Chase, Boss Battle and Drag Race), 12 tracks and a choice between 35 cars.…


Devil Invasion Review

Review TOUCHMINE CO.LTD By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
Devil Invasion Review

By now we've not only seen a slew of Bejeweled style games on the iphone, we've also seen games use Bejeweled as a mechanic for other types of gameplay. Devil Invasion is one of these games. Wrapping gem matching up in a castle defense coating, makes for a very interesting play. At the start of each level you can assign three skills to your character (which can be bought and upgraded). These spells require mana which is collected by playing the match three game during the level. This…

Dinosaur Slayer Review

Review D&D Dream Corp. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Dinosaur Slayer Review

Dinosaur Slayer by Project Soul wants nothing more than to crush you. Players will find this game quite literally hit-or-miss. Bow-defense fans will get a great new challenge while new players to the genre will find the controls much more forgiving to learn. For most levels there's not a lot out of the ordinary from a standard bow-defense game. Each 'stage' consists of wave after wave of enemies, each with their own quirk to defend against. Arrows are fired by touching the screen to s…

My Brute Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
My Brute Review

My Brute is a combat and levellng game in the same genre as games like Mafia Wars. You create a character and academy, and then fight other real opponents around the world to level up, and achieve new techniques and weapons. Like Mafia Wars, you only have a certain number of fights you can engage in each day, but can purchase the ability to play more via ingame DLC. The game is pretty much on auto pilot. The fights themselves are taken care of via the computer and all you can do is wa…

Electric Box Review

Electric Box Review

Games like 'The Incredible Machine' were great fun as you got to use a bunch of simple objects to manipulate your way to a goal. Electric Box is quite similar, only the goal is to transfer the flow of electricity from the on switch to the target using different kinds of energy conductors and transferal devices. Control is all touch and drag. The puzzles are layed out on a grid, and all the objects (from steam machines to magnets to lasers) can be placed anywhere, tapped on for a descr…
