QI's Top 10 iPhone Games for March, 2013

Toplist By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
QI's Top 10 iPhone Games for March, 2013

It's that time of the month again. Yes, it's time for the Quality Index's picks of March's most popular critical games (according to their aggregate sources), but more than that, when the QI list rolls around, you know Appspy's Top 3 isn't too far away at all! I'd say look for that early next week. If i'm wrong, blame Andrew! 1. Ridiculous Fishing - A Tale of Redemption2. Brickout Zero Gravity3. Word Soup4. Cling!5. Super Stickman Golf 26. Nimble Quest7. King Cashing 28. Totems9. The Silent Age10. Block Fortress I'm trying something new this month that might help you out if you look at that list and want to see why these titles made their t…

Let's Play - Injustice: Gods Among Us

This week's Let's Play covers yet another free-to-play title, Injustice: Gods Among Us. How does a figher manage to pull off the 'free to play' model? Check out our overview of the gameplay and what the game has to offer (spoilers: it's a light fighter, but makes for a neat distraction if you're waiting to play its bigger brother).…


Disney releases Mittens on the App Store

Disney releases Mittens on the App Store

If you're on the lookout for a game that mashes together some of the more popular aspects of physics based smartphone and tablet puzzling, then Disney might just have the answer for you in the shape of Mittens. It's a game with a whole heap of mechanics vying for centre stage, from Angry Birds aping levels to scenes that borrow from Cut the Rope. Essentially it's a crash course in casual gaming from the last couple of years. If that sounds like your cup of tea you can grab the game right now from the App Store for 99c for iPhone and iPod or $2.99 for the HD version for your iPad. Alternatively, stick around and check out the trailer below to see some cats and some physics.…


Vendetta Online Releases on iPad April 17th

News By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago

Some MMO fans might be familiar with Vendetta Online. Launched in 2004 (but running since 2002), this space based action online experience is coming to mobile devices, and by mobile, I mean it's being ported to the iPad on April 17th. We don't review too many MMOs here at Appspy because of the time investment needed to give them a fair look, but watching the trailer, it looks like not only an enjoyable experience, but pretty amazing that you'll be able to play it on the comfort of your own tablet.…


Injustice: Gods Among Us available now

News By Harry Slater, 1 year, 3 months ago
Injustice: Gods Among Us available now

Superheroes have been beating each other up since time immemorial, but few of them have chosen to take their epic smackdowns to the App Store. That is, until now, with the release of Injustice: Gods Among Us for iPad and iPhone. If you're after a straight port of the soon to be released console brawler you're going to be disappointed though. Instead this iOS version is a free-to-play card battler that lets you pick a team of three heroes and duke it out for supremacy in the DC universe. There's some cross compatibility, with items you unlock in the mobile game available in the console game, and there's a pretty impressive roster of heroes and villains for you to choose from, including Batm…


The Other Brothers Review

Review Simian Squared Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 3 months ago
The Other Brothers Review

Joe and Jim aren't your typical mechanics - for one they're not averse to the odd spot of vigilantism when the Mafia and FBI start acting a bit 'weird'. Of course you could draw a comparison between this duo and another famous pair, but it's hardly a giant leap of logic when 3D Attack Interactive call their platformer 'The Other Brothers'... however beyond the basic motivation of saving a damsel in distress, the two are nothing alike (as far as platformers go). While Mario and Luigi h…

BADLAND Review

Review Frogmind By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 3 months ago
BADLAND Review

If my arm was twisted and I had to describe BADLAND by Frogmind as quickly as possible, I'd describe it as a darker and even more disturbing take on the Lemmings concept, but with flying Furbies. It's not perfect, but game doesn't exactly jive with conventions as you throw caution to the wind and smash, stab, crush, and slice hundreds of clones in an attempt to reach the all-important exit tube. And you'll do it all with nothing more than a single finger. By tapping or holding, you'l…

[UPDATED] Nimble Quest Review

Review NimbleBit LLC By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
[UPDATED] Nimble Quest Review

When it comes to the freemium model, Nimblebit are one of the better developers at offering unique and interesting game experiences with a no cash up front policy, and thankfully their games aren't too inundated with in-app purchases or wasting your time as a gamer. Their latest effort Nimble Quest takes the foundation of the ever popular mobile experience, Snake, and turns it into a simple roleplaying game, albeit one that is more interested in lining up heroes than leveling one up (a…

Blue Toad Murder Files coming to iOS

News By Harry Slater, 1 year, 3 months ago
Blue Toad Murder Files coming to iOS

It's hard to pin point exactly where the point and click revival happened, but some might suggest that Blue Toad Murder Files had a lot to do with it. Originally a PSN exclusive, the murder mystery game is now heading to iOS. Slated for release on April 11th, the game is an episodic adventure that sees you and up to three friends trying to solve a murder mystery in the sleepy village of Little Riddle. This new version has been, according to Relentless Software, built from scratch for mobile devices. There'll be four mysteries for you to unravel, all presented in a charming cartoon way. Expect a mixture of Miss Marple style sleuthing and a lot of jokes too. We've no word yet on price, but…


Dream Tim Review

Review Faizan Kasbati By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
Dream Tim Review

Not to be overly judgmental of the protagonist of Dream Tim, but if you're dreaming of putting yourself in an endless runner, regardless of the reasons or the reward at the end of the unlockable chapters, you might need to get yourself some professional help. Yes, Dream Tim is the latest in the endless runner genre, but it decides to take a bold stance, and do away with the normal run and jump gameplay, replacing it with a swiping mechanic to destroy monsters and grab coins. If it actu…

Sorted! Review

Review Mighty Kingdom By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 3 months ago
Sorted! Review

Sorted! by Mighty Kingdom finds itself falling in to that niche category of time-wasters that can best be described as 'micro games'. If you've ever played a WarioWare game you'll know what I'm talking about - you're presented with a rapid-fire series of screens where you have to figure out and succeed at the 'game' placed before you in a matter of seconds. However, unlike WarioWare, Sorted! sticks to one game, and while it does vary things up, the game feels limited and lacks a hook t…

[UPDATE] Order & Chaos Duels - Trading Card Game Review

Review Gameloft By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
[UPDATE] Order & Chaos Duels - Trading Card Game Review

[Editor's Note: After further gameplay testing we've noted several points in the campaign where the AI is provided with what can only be described as severly imbalanced abilities and decks. These will act as roadblocks preventing progression, though the exact placing of said roadblocks will depend on your character and their deck/abilities. Sadly it comes down to luck as to whether you'll draw better than your opponent in these cases and it would be good to see the pogression evened ou…

Ms. Splosion Man Review

Review Microsoft Corporation By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 3 months ago
Ms. Splosion Man Review

More and more these days we're seeing console and PC titles making their way to the App Store. However the most successful of these shape their title to fit the mold of the iOS platform, be it through unique controls to suit the touch-screen or a complete rework of its gameplay. Ms. Splosion Man takes the easier route of keeping things mostly unchanged, and while it does hurt the game in some ways, the manic platformer from Twisted Pixel Games remains a treat to play. If you took a bu…

Battle Dungeon returns as Battle Dungeon: Risen

News By Harry Slater, 1 year, 3 months ago
Battle Dungeon returns as Battle Dungeon: Risen

If you've any interest in the fantasy role playing genre you might remember a game by the name of Battle Dungeon that released at the end of last year. It was a turn based adventure that let you test your strategy and cunning against AI foes or online friends. Unfortunately so many people pirated the game that the developer, Hunted Cow Studios, couldn't keep up the servers for people who'd legitimately bought the game and it had to be pulled from the App Store. Well, now it's back with a new name, Battle Dungeon: Risen, and a focus on single player gaming rather than the asynchronous online battling that the original game offered. So you're still getting a turn-based, strategy RPG, you jus…


Runaway: A Twist of Fate - Part 1 Review

Review Numeric Pipeline By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 3 months ago
Runaway: A Twist of Fate - Part 1 Review

Despite the Adventure genre going through a hay-day of sorts, there were many problems with the basic gameplay - notably, it was almost assumed that players understood the genre's many tropes. Supposedly, after what was called the 'Grandma Test', Telltale games revised how they approached teaching the player how to play their games and this has flowed through to each of their titles since then. Runaway: A Twist of Fate is the third in a series from Pendulo Studios, and unfortunately it…
