The Answer

Feature By Dave Flodine, 11 months, 1 week ago
The Answer

Hey there loyal Appspy readers! The Answer is a little late this week, but you all know that I wouldn’t leave you hanging... so here we are. Once again our community gave me a lot to think about in terms of what constitutes value for an iOS game, and why. We had readers who won’t move passed the $0.99 mark because of the screen size and nature of most iOS games, and on the other end we had those willing to pay $20 if they got a deep, satisfying console-esque experience for the price. Most hovered in-between, preferring to pay as little as possible but willing to go higher if the experience was worthy of it in their eyes. Like our readers, I prefer the $0.99 price point, but I t…

Shadow Vamp's future looks bright

It's fantastic when the concept of a game alone is enough to get you excited. Within a few seconds of watching the trailer below for Shadow Vamp, and understanding how the world is rotated to provide cover for your UV challenged protagonist. Playing with light and shadow in this way alongside such a clever narrative context hopefully provides plenty of joy when the game is eventually released. Have a watch for yourselves. The game is apparently coming very soon so we'll be sure to keep an eye out for you.…


Anima - a unique multiplayer experience

Anima - a unique multiplayer experience

Anima is due out on the App Store later this month, and aside from the interesting polygonal isometric style, the gameplay is worth mention. This little action game is actually a multiplayer experience in which two halves of the same person are competing to see who can collect the most energy in two minutes. With powerups and enemies in your path, it looks to provide quite the enjoyable experience. Have a watch of some of the beta footage. The game will cost $2.99.…

The Question

The Question

Hello there loyal Appspy readers! It’s another Monday and it’s time for another question. This one has been brewing in my head for a while... When it comes to pricing, the App Store is certainly its own beast. Pricing and value are completely independent of any other gaming platform, with the normal price point of a game to be expected to be only a couple of dollars. With the glut of free to play and $0.99 games, there are those who won’t even pay that, and while it sounds ridiculous, you can somewhat see their justification for such a stance. Then you have companies like Square Enix, and Gameloft (before it moved into the free to play sphere). They have constantly been p…

Warhammer 40k: Space Wolf Announced

Due to the success of Warhammer Quest, Games Workshop have sought out another studio (this time Herocraft) to create a game based on the popular 40k franchise. Space Wolf takes tactical strategy and combines it with a collectable card game as you upgrade your team, and build your decks over a campaign with branching story paths. The game is slated for release sometime next year. It'll be interesting to see how the collectible card aspect influences the 3d tactical gameplay and vice versa. We'll let you know information as it's released.…

The Answer

Hey there loyal Appspy readers! Another week, another round of great comments from our community. I realise that the question was a little tricky, but you all rose to the challenge. Let’s see what you had to say. Infinity Blade was brought up for its uniquely touch screen only controls while masquerading in the production value of a console or handheld title. Bastion was mentioned for taking a game from another system and adapting it superbly for iOS. Star Wars: Falcon Gunner shows off the immersive possibilities of an augmented reality game, and the use of tilting for racing games such as Real Racing 2 show off how fine tuned the accelerometer can be. When pondering the question, a…

Good news everyone! Baldur's Gate is back

Back in June, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition was removed from the App Store. The reason was contractual issues with the game's publisher, Atari. They've obviously reached a solution because the game is once again available for purchase. Not only that, but Beamdog have continued work on a massive patch for the game as well as the enhanced edition of Baldur's Gate 2. Check out our review. If you enjoy classic PC RPGs on the comfort of your iPad, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition will certainly scratch that itch. [App Store Link]…

Miseria Review

Would you believe us if we told you that Miseria, a creepy, black and white anrachnid-infested puzzler, is a love story? You see, not only is the hideous spider beast that inhabits the lower screen threatening your small furry life, but it's also made off with your missus. To get her back, you must tap the sides of the screen to rotate the world, and use gravity to reach the swirling spiral of freedom. Along the way you must avoid toppling out of the maze and into the maw of the scree…

Flashout 2 teaser trailer revealed

Slated for Quarter 4, this sequel to Flashout 3D looks like it's picking up exactly where the first game left off. Obviously taking a few cues from the Wipeout franchise, this futuristic iOS racer will feature improved visuals, a lengthy career mode, better handling, and multiplayer. Take a look for yourselves. Let's just hope that there's a choice of soundtrack. If the trailer is any indication, it is not going to appeal to everyone's taste.…
