The Answer

Hey there loyal Appspy readers! Another week, another round of great comments from our community. I realise that the question was a little tricky, but you all rose to the challenge. Let’s see what you had to say. Infinity Blade was brought up for its uniquely touch screen only controls while masquerading in the production value of a console or handheld title. Bastion was mentioned for taking a game from another system and adapting it superbly for iOS. Star Wars: Falcon Gunner shows off the immersive possibilities of an augmented reality game, and the use of tilting for racing games such as Real Racing 2 show off how fine tuned the accelerometer can be. When pondering the question, a…


Good news everyone! Baldur's Gate is back

Good news everyone! Baldur's Gate is back

Back in June, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition was removed from the App Store. The reason was contractual issues with the game's publisher, Atari. They've obviously reached a solution because the game is once again available for purchase. Not only that, but Beamdog have continued work on a massive patch for the game as well as the enhanced edition of Baldur's Gate 2. Check out our review. If you enjoy classic PC RPGs on the comfort of your iPad, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition will certainly scratch that itch. [App Store Link]…


Miseria Review

Review RatJar Games By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 2 months ago
Miseria Review

Would you believe us if we told you that Miseria, a creepy, black and white anrachnid-infested puzzler, is a love story? You see, not only is the hideous spider beast that inhabits the lower screen threatening your small furry life, but it's also made off with your missus. To get her back, you must tap the sides of the screen to rotate the world, and use gravity to reach the swirling spiral of freedom. Along the way you must avoid toppling out of the maze and into the maw of the scree…

Flashout 2 teaser trailer revealed

Flashout 2 teaser trailer revealed

Slated for Quarter 4, this sequel to Flashout 3D looks like it's picking up exactly where the first game left off. Obviously taking a few cues from the Wipeout franchise, this futuristic iOS racer will feature improved visuals, a lengthy career mode, better handling, and multiplayer. Take a look for yourselves. Let's just hope that there's a choice of soundtrack. If the trailer is any indication, it is not going to appeal to everyone's taste.…

Continue the Cognition saga on August 15th

When the first episode of Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller released on iOS in March, we gave it a decent review, enjoying the dark tone of the story, and the interesting psychic angle. The series has been moving along steadily on PC, but finally episode two is about to be released on iOS. If you enjoyed your time with episode 1, or like the look of the game from the trailer below, be watching the App Store tomorrow. It will be selling for $3.99…


Defense Technica Review

Review Com2uS USA, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 2 months ago
Defense Technica Review

Defense Technica is a tower defence game which harks backs to early entries in the genre. While many modern TD games send enemies stomping towards you along pre-determined paths, Defense Technica makes you use your own towers to steer and funnel your enemies where you want them. This old-skool formula is married with a card system that acts as a replacement for tower upgrades. Though these cards - which are bought via IAPs - are supposed to be an optional feature, the game does a very…

rymdkapsel Review

Review webbfarbror AB By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 2 months ago
rymdkapsel Review

Part real time strategy, part tower defence, part exploration - rymdkapsel is certainly a unique proposition. It's one of those games where your initial playthrough is all about familiarising yourself with the mechanics so that you can start again and tackle the game proper. In fact, you'll have to take numerous runs at rymdkapsel's tough cycle until you manage to discover the secrets of the monoliths, and survive all the attack waves. Like any real time strategy title, rymdkapsel's c…

The Question

Hello there loyal Appspy readers! It’s another Monday so it’s time for our third question (yes, I am going to constantly counting these from week to week). Now we’ve talked about favourite games, and we’ve talked about the exciting strengths of the iOS platform, so for this week’s question I thought we’d sort of combine the two... What game makes the best use of the iPhone’s unique control scheme, and why? Whether it’s touch, tilt, camera, or microphone, there have been plenty of games that have offered unique ways to play that aren’t available on other systems. Your choice may be because of originality, uniqueness, or just the amount…


Pivvot Review

Review Fixpoint Productions Ltd. By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 2 months ago
Pivvot Review

Pivvot is described by its creators as a game of “strategic avoidance”. Though guiding your small orb around obstacles relies on your ability to dodge effectively, the game is more about quick reflexes and adaptability than strategy. There are two game modes available from the outset: Voyage, and Endless. Voyage is a finite experience in which must weave your way through a series of obstacles. Tapping the sides of the screen rotates your orb clockwise and counter-clockwise…

Cut the Rope: Time Travel gets Disco Era update Om Nom is taking yet another step back in time this week, courtesy of Cut the Rope: Time Travel's Disco Era Update. In addition to meeting Om Nom's groovy ancestor, you have to wrap your perm around the new disco ball mechanic, which requires you to use the shiny spheres to keep the spotlight away from those all important candies. It's free to download, so fill your cuban-heeled boots. Pirate Legends TD sails onto the App Store next week We love a bit of tower defence here on AppSpy, It's one of those genres that feels like it's been designed exclusively for the App Store.

The Answer

Hey there loyal Appspy readers! For our second edition of ‘The Question’, I asked you what excited you so much about the iPhone platform. The majority of the responses mentioned not only the portability of the platform (as everyone takes their phone with them no matter where they go), but the accessibility of games as well. With dozens of titles released each week, it’s true that players are never at want for gaming content. Of course it is difficult to separate the good from the bad when there is such a consistent slew of releases, but that’s why Appspy is here, to help steer you right! Now for my answer. What excites me most about the iOS platform more than anythi…

Kid Tripp Review

Review Michael Burns By James Gilmour, 1 year, 2 months ago
Kid Tripp Review

Freddie Mercury once sang that, "Pain is so close to pleasure". Though we suspect he wasn't singing about tough-as-nails pixel-art auto-runners like Kid Tripp, he might as well have been. Like the 8-bit platformers of old, Kid Tripp is designed to test your both your memory and your reflexes to breaking point, in the hope of delivering the ultimate gaming reward: the thrill of a victory snatched from the jaws of defeat. And, for the most part, Kid Tripp fulfils its brutal ambitions.…
