Halfbrick's newest collaboration Band Stars soft launches in Australia, and Canada

Halfbrick's newest collaboration Band Stars soft launches in Australia, and Canada

Halfbrick have teamed up with developer Six Foot Kid to release Band Stars. The game is out now in Australia and Canada, and will be a free release in the rest of the world later on in the year. Take a look at the debut trailer. From the trailer, Band Stars looks to be more sim game than rhythm game, picking band members, a genre, and mixing the song in the studio in order to top the charts with that number one hit. You can train your members, undertake band challenges, and even decorate your own studio. Seeing the game is out in my native country, I'll be grabbing it today, and you should see a soft launch review or impressions piece soon.…


Giant Boulder of Death Review

Review [adult swim] By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 1 month ago
Giant Boulder of Death Review

You might ask, “What motivation for destruction could a giant boulder possibly have to go on a gravity-powered killing spree?" That's a fair question, one that Adult Swim's Giant Boulder of Death attempts to answer. You see, a pompous general has turned your loved one into a statue of himself. So, in a fit of rage, our rocky hero decide to roll down a hill crushing everything in his path. The game follows the endless-runner formula of play, upgrade, and then play some more.…

Strata Review

Review Graveck By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 1 month ago
Strata Review

Strata is a ribbon-based puzzle game that requires a large amount of forethought. Though we often rally behind puzzle games which give our fingers something to do while our brains dissect the problem, you might be surprised to learn that we took to Strata in a big way. It's a game about laying coloured ribbons on grid filled with coloured tiles. Criss-crossing two ribbons over a tile activates the colour beneath. The catch is that the tile will only light up if the ribbon layed on top…

The Question

The Question

Hello there loyal Appspy readers! It’s another Monday and it is of course time for another question. Last week there was a new iPhone announcement, and along with it came a plethora of game trailers for upcoming releases (with Infinity Blade III being revealed at the keynote speech itself). With such franchises as Trials, Rayman, and Assassin’s Creed on their way to iOS (and no doubt more announcements to come), my question for you is a simple one this week. Which game slated for release before the end of the year are you most excited for? Let us know in the comments, and i’ll let you know my pick at the end of the week. With luck, there might be even more developments b…

The Answer

Hey there loyal Appspy readers! Thank you once again for your responses. Special shout outs to Jastootie and Taekon for their detailed answers. It seems that when it comes to this week’s question, most people go all in or nothing, either having a completionist’s attitude to obtaining all the stars, or not caring about anything but forward progression. My approach can be summed up as optimism slowly declining into apathy. For most of these games, my goals start out noble. “Of course I’ll grab every star, that’s part of the gameplay, and the challenge”. For the first batch of levels, this usually suffices as the game hasn’t become difficult yet, and…


Angry Birds Star Wars II Official Trailer

Angry Birds Star Wars II Official Trailer

Earlier in the year we reported on the upcoming Angry Birds Star Wars II. Well it looks like it's due out next week on the 19th, and Rovio have a new trailer to show off. It highlights some of the jedi powers which look really fun to play with, as well as joining the pork side and unleashing sith powers as the piggies. Have a look for yourselves! I've been off the Angry Birds bandwagon since the original release, but this is looking to pull me back in. We'll know whether that rings true or not next week!…


Where's My Water? 2 Review

Review Disney By James Gilmour, 1 year, 1 month ago
Where's My Water? 2 Review

Where's My Water? 2 is a difficult game to play. Not because the earth-filled maps are especially tough to negotiate. Or because the physics are broken or unpredictable. No, Where's My Water? 2 is a difficult game to play because it doesn't want to be played. At least, not in the manner you or I might be accustomed to. Things start off promisingly. The water-funnelling gameplay of the original title makes a strong return, along with the revival of shower-loving protagonist Swamp…

News Wrap-Up | 13th September 2013

Apple officially revealed the shiny new iPhone 5S and the colourful iPhone 5C to the world this week, marking the beginning of another week of news reports showing cold Apple fans camping on a dirty street with a faraway look in their eyes. However, it was the game Apple used to show off its swanky new A7 processor which had us pitching tents of our own. You'd best start flexing your swiping finger, because Infinity Blade III is due out next week. The newest instalment in Chair's wildly successful action RPG franchise, Infinity Blade III offers two new playable characters whom you will guide through no less than eight new game worlds. And, with each of these worlds containing more square…


Gleamer Review

Review Emmet Morris By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 1 month ago
Gleamer Review

Gleamer is a platformer which combines simple shapes, basic controls, and a pulsing electronica soundtrack. The goal is to collect all five stars as quickly as possible, allowing you to move on another of the game's 50 stages. It all sounds rather standard doesn't it? However, it's amazing how one little mechanic can make all the difference. Your cube moves automatically, and reverses direction when it hits the outer edge of the level. Every time it does this you gain speed. The stag…

Where's My Water? 2: How many levels can you play?

Where's My Water? 2: How many levels can you play?

As you probably already know, Where's My Water? 2 is now available on the App Store. This time out, Disney has decided to make the water-based puzzler a free-to-play experience. This means you can download and play the game without having to spend a penny. However, to stop you blowing through it all in one go, the developer has included an energy system which locks you out of the game when the bar is empty. We thought we'd find out how many levels of Where's My Water? 2 you can play before your energy runs out. Check out the video below for the results. Note: We started with a full energy bar. Repeating a level after failing also drains energy. Energy can be replenished by crossing ba…

Free-to-play sequel Where's My Water? 2 out now

Disney has just released the first proper sequel to its insanely popular alligator cleaning sim Where's My Water? It's called Where's My Water? 2, and you can download it free from the App Store right now. As with the first game, you have to use your finger to dig a path through the earth in order to channel water into Swampy's pipes and out of his shower head.  This time, however, each of the levels (of which there are over 100) has a series of additional challenges to tackle. These include finding and capturing a Mystery Duck, or trying to complete the level upside-down. Swampy is also joined by his old pals Cranky and Allie. Allie needs steam to power her pipe organ, while…

Star Wars Force Collection | Hands-On

Hey, you there! Yes, you! Do you like popular sci-fi movie franchise Star Wars? How about collectible card game Rage of Bahamut? If you answered 'yes' to those two questions then we may have the card game you're looking for. It's called Star Wars Force Collection, and it's Konami's lightsaber-filled take on the collectible card game genre. If you have any experience with these types of game, you know that they are pretty open-ended, making them a bit tricky to review. So instead of rushing to judgement, I decided it would be better to show you 10 minutes of the game in action, and let you decide for yourself. Enjoy, and may the force be etc.…


Bombcats Special Edition Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 1 month ago
Bombcats Special Edition Review

Chillingo has been experimenting with freemium games in recent months. One of these experiments was Bombcats, a game which combined the physics flinging fun of exploding kitties with a freemium gem system. We didn't get around to reviewing the original release, but with Bombcats Special Edition sidelining the gem currency and adding more content, we thought we'd take second look. So there are these trapped kittens. To free them, you chuck an exploding cat (because cats explode now) in…

Fling Theory Review

Review Coding Jar Studios By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 1 month ago
Fling Theory Review

In Fling Theory, you follow a particle through a journey of attraction, repulsion, destruction, and everything in-between. It's a physics flinger in the truest sense of the word. Each stage involves guiding your partcle through series of mazes and pipes, collecting the three stars and plenty of coins along the way. By changing the charge of your particle (yellow for positive, red for negative) you alter the way charged particles in the environment affect your path through the maze. By…
