Purple Cape Launching Soon

News By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 1 month ago
Purple Cape Launching Soon

Josh Presseisen of Crescent Moon Games has let drop on his Twitter feed that Purple Cape by Last Moon Games will be launching in 'a few days'. We might take that as a release this Thursday the 28th, but until we have something more official, check out the trailer to this intriguing platformer. While I may have reservations about Platformers with 'physics' like the one demonstrated in the video (that is to say, Little Big Planet-esque), I can't help but be intrigued by the variety of power-ups, stage designs, and the way previously encountered obstacles are given novel twists. Consider us on the job when it comes to reviewing Purple Cape after it drops on the App Store!…

FAA's Free App of the Day: Impossible Pixel

We're working together with the team at Free App Alliance to highlight a great free app for you to check out everyday. Today's release is one we've just had a quick play of and while comaprisons are being made to League of Evil, I'd go so far as to say Impossible Pixel ramps up to quickly become almost Super Meat Boy-like in its brutality... and that's a good thing! "Impossible Pixel is a tough League of Evil-style platformer that features 90-odd bite-sized levels, all of which are filled with dangerous pits, spinning saws, and plenty of other terrifying hazards. Your aim, then, is to avoid all of these obstacles and successfully make it to the end of each stage in as fast a time as y…


Ultima Forever Teaser Trailer

Ultima Forever Teaser Trailer

I am torn on this one. The Ultima franchise is responsible for so much in the Western RPG genre, and captivated the imaginations of innumerable gamers growing up in the 80s and 90s. Sadly like most franchises, a couple less than stellar entries made the continuation of the series less profitable and it quietly left in the night (if you don't count the MMO which pretty much was the blueprint for that genre as well). Well now slated for a Quarter Two release this year is Ultima Forever. Here's a teaser trailer. On one hand, Mythic is a studio with a great track record, and the game has a classic Western RPG look to it. On the other hand, EA's business practises have been less than stel…

Gravity Duck Defying Physics this week

Ravenous Games, best known for the League of Evil series has a reputation for delivering precise platforming experiences to the iPhone. This week they're releasing Gravity Duck, whose main control method to get around each level is to change gravity to fly through hazards. It looks like an extension of the gameplay present in VVVVVV. Have a look at the trailer! I'll be looking forward to this one, and as long as it controls smoothly, i foresee having a lot of fun with the title.…

A Game for Fans of Star Wars and Pinball

Star Wars Pinball Boba Fett is hitting the App Store this week. Those who want to relive the key movie moments of Boba Fett while juggling multi-ball and shooting up ramps, this game will be right up your alley. The trailer makes it look a little cinematic in places, but that might just mean more amusement as you're chasing that high score. Have a look for yourselves.…


Bipolar Review

Review Mike Colussi By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 1 month ago
Bipolar Review

Now now, before anyone gets into an uproar, this is not a puzzle game based around the medical disorder. It's more like... well, do you know those chess puzzles in the newspaper that have a pre-set amount of pieces and you have to figure out how to checkmate in a certain number of moves? This is like that with the board game Othello... only not really. Each horizontal row needs to be the same color, and to make that happen, you draw a line across tiles with your finger so that when you…

These are the risks that come with the territory however. Worm Run is an endless runner based around a swiping mechanic, leading Zeke through all manner of twisting cavern full on nooks and crevices.

Speed Kills hits the App Store running

Speed Kills hits the App Store running

Speed Kills is a top down racer, powered by the Unreal Engine, that harks back to the glory days of Micro Machines and Skid Marks with its violent, action packed, hard cornering gameplay. And you can grab it right now from the App Store for nothing at all. The game features more than 100 races spread across 50 unique tracks, and fully upgradeable vehicles that can look like sleek futuristic rocket ships or post-apocalyptic death trucks. Throw in some weapons and you've got a recipe for destruction. It certainly looks the part, and there's a pumping industrial rock soundtrack to make your ears bleed too. Getting the right balance of arcade handling and decent controls can be difficult on to…


DIE HARD Review

DIE HARD Review

Editor's Note: I should have picked up on the incorrect movie title; apologies! Freemium design around the in-app purchase model can be excused. Freemium design around the in-app purchase model of a premium title is pretty abominable, but OK. Freemium design around the in-app purchase model of a premium title that is a movie licensed game, well that's reaching new heights of unbelievability. That's what we have here with Die Hard however. Don't be confused though, it's not based on th…

Towel Fight 2: The Monocle of Destiny

Towel Fight 2: The Monocle of Destiny

The first thought I had watching the trailer of Towelfight 2 is that the game designers definitely took their inspiration from The Binding of Isaac. This is certainly not a bad thing at all as long as the control allow for fluid movement around these crazy game levels. The whole game has a nice 'we don't take ourselves that seriously' tone, and when the game is released on February 26th, it could prove to be quite enjoyable.…

App Wrap Up (Week Ending, 22nd February, 2013)

Hey hey readers! It's the end of the week and we here at Appspy have another App Wrap Up ready to read. Now that the year is starting to kick into gear the releases are speeding up somewhat, but plenty of games fall through the cracks and are over looked for one reason or another. As always we have some trailers of such games, and are showcasing them here based on something interesting that they might have to offer. Without further ado, let's get started!   Super Grid Run (Refresh Creations ltd) A very pure style of endless runner. It kind of throws back to early entries in the 3d genre like Boost 3D. I hope that the control method is responsive as the onslaught of obstac…

Red Rusher is... er... Rushing into the App Store on Feb 25th

While the majority of the trailer I'm about to embed sets up the story of Red Rusher, it was the brief gameplay glimpses at the end that intrigued me, with its monochrome colour pallete and 'swiping to slash' attacks. Have a look for yourself. Have a look out for this one dropping in the App Store early next week.…

Rock Slide due for iOS Sometime in March

Rock Slide just came out on Android devices, but is slated for an iOS release this March. Now a quick look at it might cause most of you to be dismissive of its simplistic visuals, but have a look at the trailer, and the puzzle gameplay underneath. I think puzzle fans will find some entertainment when this one finally gets released.…

Avadon 2: The Corruption coming later this year

If you like your RPGs old skool, your view points isometric, and your epic adventures quest based, then you're probably going to get pretty excited at the prospect of the recently revealed Avadon 2: The Corruption. The second in Spiderweb Software's deep, heavy going RPG series, this new adventure, which is the middle chunk of a proposed trilogy, is set to pick up where its predecessor left off, adding new intrigues and story lines for you to get your teeth into. This isn't RPGing for the faint of heart or the action orientated though, much like its predecessor the game is set to offer deep character advancement, plenty of lore, and hours upon hours of quests, side quests, and diversions f…
