Expansion packs for Galaxy on Fire 2 now half price

The expansion packs for gorgeous space-based shooter Galaxy on Fire 2 are now available for half price. If you're unfamiliar with the free-to-play blaster, Galaxy on Fire 2 puts you in control of a fighter vessel, and asks you to zip around the universe zapping enemies and trading goods with other space-faring types. The first update, entitled Valkyrie, expanded the Galaxy on Fire universe further, adding new missions, plus a host of extra weaponry, characters, and ships. After Valkyrie came the Supernova update. This expansion let you do battle in the radioactive glow of a recently exploded star. It also featured new missions and gear, including a shield capable of dealing with gamma r…

Season 2 of The Walking Dead to be unveiled tomorrow

Having already received plaudits for the first episode of The Wolf Among Us, Telltale is about to lift the mortuary sheet from a soon-to-be reanimated corpse. Yep, you guessed it: The second series of The Walking Dead: The Game is about to be revealed.  The news, which broke when Telltale posted a teaser image on its Facebook page, will likely excite fans of the multi-award-winning first season. We at AppSpy have been on tenterhooks since July's satisfying DLC stopgap episode The Walking Dead: 400 Days, and can't wait to see what morally compromising situations the developer has cooked up for us this time. Given the tone of the teaser image - which features Clementine's blood…


Hazel Dazzle iPad Review

Review Wake Studios By James Gilmour, 8 months, 4 weeks ago
Hazel Dazzle iPad Review

Hazel is a budding archaeologist who is trying to stop an evil doctor from using the ruins of an ancient race for his own nefarious purposes. The game she inhabits, Hazel Dazzle, is an action adventure that borrows from the spinning, spherical levels of Super Mario Galaxy, and combines them with more traditional dungeon-crawling sections. Unfortunately, though this marriage of gameplay styles can work, Hazel Dazzle is a shallow experience which is afflicted by some irritating tech…

Infinity Danger Review

Review Milkstone Studios SL By James Gilmour, 8 months, 4 weeks ago
Infinity Danger Review

When you first pick up Infinity Danger, you might find yourself wondering where the rest of the game went. Imagine a bullet-hell shooter in which all the levels have been stripped away. So, instead of fighting waves of enemies to get to an end boss, you engage in one timed boss battle after another. Now imagine you're fighting same boss every time, chipping away at layer upon layer of modular evolution to reveal the heart of the ship, and blast it smithereens once more. After your fi…

Tilt To Live 2 looks pretty redonkulous

Tilt To Live 2 looks pretty redonkulous

We heard the rumours that One Man Left Studios was working on a sequel to their critically acclaimed dot avoider Tilt To Live. With the release of this trailer, these rumours have been confirmed! One of the strengths of the original game was to show how resposive and nuanced tilt controls could be on the iPhone, and judging from the trailer, everything that made the original such a joy to play has been expanded. Have a look for yourselves! The plan is for the game to be released sometime in November but there is no confirmation of that at this current time. We'll let you know as soon as we do, because this is something I'm personally looking forward to taking for a test drive as…


Cosmoplan is a different kind of physics puzzler

Cosmoplan is a different kind of physics puzzler

For instance, it takes place in space! Seriously though, the idea of using different sections of a rocket to blast off in different directions looks to be pretty engaging. The trailer has a bit of story, but if you stick around till the end, you'll see the complexity of later stages revealing itself (with orbits and black holes), and it looks pretty mind-bending in its amazingness. Cosmoplan: A Space Puzzle is available now on the App Store for the price of $0.99. [App Store Link]…


Autumn Dynasty: Warlords invading the App Store next month

Autumn Dynasty: Warlords invading the App Store next month

Handsome real-time strategy game Autumn Dynasty is getting an iOS follow-up in November. Titled Autumn Dynasty: Warlords, this sequel will move beyond the battlefield, allowing players to erect cities upon conquered lands, and grow their empires and armies through resource management and wise leadership. According to details released by developer Touch Dimension, the central campaign (which allegedly contains 60-hours-worth of missions) can be completed in a number of ways, giving you the power to groom warlords, and pick and choose your battles. These decision aren't arbitrary, either, with apparently insignificant choices capable of creating a chain reaction which could cause your empir…


Tear through the streets in Blur Overdrive on November 1st

Tear through the streets in Blur Overdrive on November 1st

For those who enjoy racing games with fewer gear-tuning options and more high-voltage taser attacks, 2010's console-based racer Blur was a bit of a godsend.  Unfortunately, despite positive reviews, the hyper-real street racer didn't sell half as well as it should have. Soon after it launched, the developer responsible, Bizarre Creations, closed its doors for good, apparently killing any prospect of a Blur sequel. Well, it turns out there still developers who think the Blur license deserves another shot at pole position. And, thanks to Appcrowd and Marmalade Play, Blur Overdrive will come burning onto the App Store on November 1st. As this is a mobile game, there have been a few ch…

Echo Prime Review

Having touched a nerve last year with its turn-based strategy hit Hero Academy, Robot Entertainment has returned to the iOS battleground with a new game in tow. Obviously keen to try their hand at a combat system with more immediacy than Hero Academy's asynchronous duels, the team has knocked up a a sci-fi-flavoured action-RPG. Here, the combat is real time, and your enemies' feet aren't rooted to tiles on the floor. You take control of a space-marine type who has been charged with ba…

Grab Knights of the Old Republic for half price now

Grab Knights of the Old Republic for half price now

In the pantheon of Star Wars games, BioWare's Knights of the Old Republic will go down in history as one of the greatest.  It's one of the reasons we were so chuffed when the epic space opera set in that galaxy far, far away jumped onto the App Store earlier this year.  If you were put off by the game's £6.99 / $9.99 price tag, however, then you patience has been rewarded, young padawan. As of this very moment, Knights of the Old Republic is available for half-price. Apart from the new touchscreen-friendly control scheme (which is surprisingly decent) we found the iOS version of KOTOR a near perfect recreation of a truly landmark RPG. Don't believe us? Then we suggest y…


Dice Jockey Review

Dice Jockey Review

Whether you play Monopoly, the craps table at your local casino, or a game of Warhammer, we're sure you're all familiar with dice - those little cubes of luck and chance. Dice Jockey takes a little bit of a different tack, demanding you learn the layout of a six-sided die, and use this knowledge to align and match face values to create combos and complete levels. Dragging a die with your finger will roll it along the game grid. The aim is to line up a series of dice so that they all d…

Paint it Back Review

Paint it Back Review

Anyone whose spent any time on a Nintendo system should be familiar with Picross, the puzzle game which involves creating pixelated pictures by filling in squares on a grid. To help you solve these puzzles, numbers are attached to the end of every row and column. These numbers tell you how many squares must be filled, and how many should be left blank. The trick is to work out which squares you need to paint to complete the picture without putting a foot wrong along the way. It's a si…

A sequel to New Star Soccer possibly in the works

This is probably more from James' wheelhouse as Football is a much bigger deal in the UK where he resides, rather than Australia where I reside. For instance, I was actually unaware of New Star Soccer or its popularity (it won the BAFTA award for best sports game of the year), but in a recent studio profile from our sister site Pocketgamer.biz, developer Simon Read talks about his team's desire to create a full sequel that will span all console and handheld devices (including mobile of course). This is exciting news for fans of the game. If any of you wish to educate me on why you enjoy New Star Soccer so much, please do so in the comments!…

Brainsquare is set to test your grey matter

The premise of Brainsquare seems simple enough - swipe coloured tiles around until they all line up with their corresponding pegs. Watching it in action though makes my brain squeal in terror. The trailer might instill similar reactions in you. Watch at your own risk! The game is from Sompom Creative Studio, a young indie studio based in Cambodia. Those with a penchant to test their mental wits will likely delight at the challenge held within Brainsquare. For the rest of us... well, the game is free, so why not give it a try? You might enjoy what it has to offer. [App Store Link]…
