[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

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…

First look at Moebius

News By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 3 months ago
First look at Moebius

Moebius is the latest game by adventure game luminary Jane Jensen. For those of you unfamiliar with her work, she is most famous for the Gabriel Knight series. Last year her kickstarter campaign for a new game was funded, and this trailer based on an alpha build of the game was released to her kickstarter backers, who will be providing feedback. Already it looks quite intriguing as a story, if not a little flat and sparse in the animation department. The backgrounds are very eye catching however. Plans are to show the game off at this year's E3. No word on when they're looking to release but I would imagine sometime this year, perhaps in quarter four. As this is being released on iPad alo…


Have a Blast... with Dragons!

Have a Blast... with Dragons!

Coming out this Thursday in the App Store in Dragon Blast. A pretty simple physics puzzler in the vein of games like Angry Birds. While it does look rather derivitive, the longer I watched the trailer, the more I found a certain charm in the level design that I think could be enjoyable. Have a look at the trailer for yourselves and see what I mean.…

Gameloft's Iron Man 3 - Releasing April 25th

Gameloft's Iron Man 3 - Releasing April 25th

It's easy to say we're liking the look of Gameloft's current titles. Old habits may die hard for a company like this, but we're willing to give praise where due - most recently with their release of Order & Chaos: Duels. Now we find ourselves in a similar situation with their upcoming movie tie-in for Iron Man 3; it's looking gorgeous and could potentially be very addictive if the combat is anything to go by. Instead of a rough-shod 3D brawler, players take the role of Tony Stark as he speeds along, shooting down enemies in his path in an After Burner-like target and fire system. Obviously we won't know more until closer to the release date of April 25th, but for now you can check out…

App Wrap Up (Week ending 29th March, 2013)

Hey Hey Appspy readers, and welcome to another installment of the App Wrap Up, your favourite regular feature on our site! Last week's picking were sparse indeed but don't fret, this week I have a bunch of trailers to more than make up for it! As always, these games are based solely on their trailers, and if you like what you see, well that's why we add the link to the App Store. Let's get started!   AHOGE CHANBARA (MMXIII M2 Co., Ltd.) This is one of the more interesting takes on an Infinity Blade-esque dodge and attack game i've seen. The anime characters attacking with their hair have a certain charm to them that lends some possible enjoyment to this title.[App Store Link]…

Magicka iPad Review

Review Paradox Interactive By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 3 months ago
Magicka iPad Review

If you haven't had a chance to play one of the incredible Magicka titles from Paradox Interactive, this is a special kind of treat. It would have been too much to expect the game to have been brought over without any changes - it was a game very much reliant on its keyboard and mouse control setup - and so with the help of Ludosity, Magicka has been reborn as a 2D side-scrolling brawler. "SACRILIGE!" I hear you cry out, but your cries are in vain - the game you know has been kept in t…

Dungeon Hearts iPad Review

Review Devolver Digital By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 3 months ago
Dungeon Hearts iPad Review

For a long while the three-match arcade puzzle mechanic concept slept in the back of the gaming consciousness, occasionally finding a sort of yawning, eye-squinting revival by being jammed in as an alternative to button mashing. Dungeon Hearts by Cube Roots and Devolver Digital could have easily slipped in to the same, rote (and boring) routine as those that have come before, but instead they offer an immediate and highly challenging experience. In a way you can think of Dungeon Heart…
