Thieving Daddies?

Thieving Daddies?

Yes! Daddy was a Thief is the latest game by Rebel Twins, makers of Crumble Zone. With a fun setup and keeping the same crunchy sound effects their previous title was known for, this looks like a fun spin on the time waster / endless runner genre. Have a look at the trailer! The game is due out on the 9th of May.…

Appspy Transition Updated!

Hey hey all! Well a work week has passed since I wrote about Appspy getting all shook up like Elvis. For those of you who were missing the video content, first... shame on you for not making do with my amazing reviews! Now that I've got all the jokes out of my system, let me fill you in on what's going on. Andrew has taken a new position at a new company. We wish him the best, and will miss the work he put into helping make Appspy much bigger than it was when I was editor. In the past week, our parent company Steel Media has found us a new video creator in James, who will be commencing new video content as of next week. I'd like you all to make him feel welcome. So that's pretty much it. I…

Lego Batman: DC Superheroes swings onto the App Store

If you like superheroes, building things, smashing things, and large winged rodents, then you're in for a treat today, because Lego Batman: DC Superheroes has made its way onto the App Store, bringing with it all of those things and more. There are two control methods that let you throw Batman and company around the game, with a newly designed scheme for touch screen devices and the more traditional floating joystick both vying to be the one you poke the most. With more than 80 characters to unlock, special abilities to master, and a huge story driven single player campaign to explore, there's enough content here to keep you playing for a good long while. The game is available from the Ap…


Robot Unicorn Attack 2 Review

Review [adult swim] By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
Robot Unicorn Attack 2 Review

It's been a couple years since Adult Swim graced us with Robot Unicorn Attack, a fantastical romp with a unicorn through a fairy tale world, complete with the biggest earworm of a soundtrack to ever grace iOS gaming. Seriously, “Always, I want to be with you”... it's in your head now, isn't it? So what do the creators have in store for a sequel. Well the usual mantra for sequels is more of the same, but bigger and better, and while that is certainly the case here, they've l…

Monster Meltdown Review

Review Ambient Studios By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
Monster Meltdown Review

For some reason, Yuri is a janitor in a lab that either houses monsters, creates monsters, or creates, and then houses monsters. Through a mishap, the monsters are let out. Now obviously Yuri is in trouble. Not only for his life (as he now has monsters running around), but his bosses are not going to be happy when they find out what he's done. So Yuri does what any of us would do; he puts on his teleporting hazard suit and goes to round up all the rampant monstrosities. Monster Meltdo…

Fancy slaughtering some zombie mutants?

Fancy slaughtering some zombie mutants?

House of the Dead: Overkill took the lightgun franchise into some brilliant new territory, infusing it with a 70's exploitation vibe and a lot more blood and gore. It's big, silly, and now there's a new version on iOS. Called The Lost Reels, the game features the original cast of the Wii hit, and throws them into three stages of gory b-movie style violence. Shoot mutants, collect cash, and upgrade your weapons to become the best zombie slaughterer on the planet. If you like your shooters grim and blood splattered, but not afraid to have a cheeky wink to the camera, then House of the Dead: Overkill The Lost Reels is likely to be right up your alley. Throw in a survival mode and three differ…


Solitaire Blitz Review

Review PopCap By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
Solitaire Blitz Review

It's been a while since we've seen something from Popcap Games. Once having a reputation for casual yet fiercely addictive titles, many of which received praise from the mainstream gaming media, the company's output has been kind of sparse and quiet these last few years. Well it seems they're still with us having released Solitaire Blitz, a spin on the Windows gaming classic that emphasises social play and leaderboards. Yes, solitaire as a social game. The irony wasn't lost on us eithe…


Garden of Fear Review

Review smuttlewerk interactive By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
Garden of Fear Review

Garden of Fear has a warning on its iTunes page. It cautions people who are scared easily from playing this game. Full disclosure, Dave cannot handle scary games. He's fine with horror films, but there's something about controlling the character involved in a horror scenario instead of just watching it that makes things all too real. For this reason, he tends to stay away from horror titles, and either as a cruel joke or just by providence, is given this game to review. You wake up in…


Haunted Hollow creeps onto the App Store

Haunted Hollow creeps onto the App Store

There might be quite a buzz around the iPad version of XCOM, but Fireaxis is easing itself into the iOS game gradually and first on their list is the tactical spook story Haunted Hollow, which is available right now on the App Store. It's a game about marshalling your minions into effective fighting groups, storming towns to capture the townsfolk, and generally being as frightening as you can. There are Fireaxis's strategy finger prints all over the game – base building, different units, resource gathering – but it's all presented in a twee cartoon style. You'll mainly be fighting against friends and enemies in the multiplayer mode, but there's a solid single player campaign he…


R.I.P. Rally Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
R.I.P. Rally Review

RIP Rally is an arena combat game where you drive around a rally car with a turret mounted machine gun, ploughing down and shooting waves of zombies, trying to survive for as long as possible while completing missions, collecting coins, and refilling your health and ammo reserves. If that already sounds like a good time, you don't need the rest of this review, but for those of you unconvinced or on the fence, let's explore this freemium title. Essentially the game plays like a twin-st…

HEAVY - sword Review

  Heavy Sword is a very classic soft of platformer. As the unlikely hero Pike, you must combat evil hordes in order to rescue the captured princess Lucinda. To aid you as you traipse through level after level is a trusty sword, as well as the ability to bash power-up blocks with your head, and the ability to stomp on top of all your foes. Yes, this game borrows many ideas from the platforming greats. Does this make it a copycat game or does it use these elements to create somethi…

Hiversaires is a cryptic point and click adventure

Hiversaires is a cryptic point and click adventure

Back in the old days you didn't have maps in your games, you had to make them yourself, drawing out the turns and encounters you came across as you explored whatever labyrinth the developer had made for you. And that sense of discovery is something that Hiversaires is aiming for. Created by Devine Lu Linvega, the game takes place in a shadowy futuristic world, presents you with no text, and leaves you alone to explore, experience, and puzzle your way through its stark grey corridors with taps and swipes. This isn't your standard iOS fare, as you might imagine, and it's not going to spark much interest in the casual crowd, but for those who long to be the cartographers on their own expediti…


Cut the Rope: Time Travel Review

Cut the Rope: Time Travel Review

Cut the Rope is a game that can be mentioned alongside such iOS runaway luminaries as Angry Birds, Temple Run, and Doodle Jump. It's one of those titles that blended simple gameplay mechanics, short levels, a cute character, and a ton of content to create a nexus point of addictive laden success. ZeptoLabs followed up their smash hit with Cut the Rope: Experiments which added a new character in the professor, as well as introducing fun new mechanics like the suction cup. Now in Cut the…

Appspy Transition

Heya loyal readers. Andrew will probably either add to this article or make his own, but Appspy will be going through a bit of a transition, and whether it's temporary or permenant remains to be seen. You may have noticed that the site has been quiet since about Thursday, and the latest review to just go up has no video to accompany it. Well I will still be updating the site with new written reviews, and any news I can find, but the video content will be absent for the foreseeable future. For those of you just here for our excellent video reviews, we understand, and hopefully they can resume sooner than later. To those that stick around and continue to support us, we give our thanks.
