Zombie Wonderland 2: Outta Time! Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 8 months ago
Zombie Wonderland 2: Outta Time! Review

It seems the never ending thirst of the app store for zombie games rivals that of the undead's thirst for all things fleshy and brainy. In Zombie Wonderland 2, Chuck has found a way to rid his home of this slow shuffling menace once and for all, but to do so, he has to acquire some components for the good doctor at the museum. The small hitch being that most of these components are somewhere in time. Yup, zombies and time travel. Players of the original Zombie Wonderland will feel rig…

Street Wrestler Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Street Wrestler Review

Well this is awkward - after failing to excite on the XBLA, Lucha Fury by Punchers Impact promptly disappeared from the gaming consciousness and now, a little over six months later, Chillingo and Candybox Studios have snuck the game on to the App Store under the rather generic name of Street Wrestler. Unfortunately, despite taking the time to spruce up certain aspects of the game, much of what made the original so unpalatable as a side-scrolling beat'em-up has survived the trip, making…

Stretched Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Stretched Review

Stretched could have one of the simplest and easiest to understand premises seen in video gaming. Yes, even simpler than 'a gorilla has stolen my girlfriend'. You play a depressed ball. He's so close to reaching the bubbles of happiness, but he needs some assistance to go the distance. Through eighty four stages it's up to the player to shake the blues away. Each level plays a little like a mix of angry birds and cut the rope. The ball is moved by stretching back, lining up the trajec…

Let Me Out Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Let Me Out Review

Show me the way to go home. I'm tired and I want to go to bed. I was trapped inside a book about an hour ago and it's doing things to my head. Is it a good or bad thing when your game's premise can be surmised by changing a few words in a drinking song? An unlucky little book dragon has been sucked into the pages of the tome it was reading and now through the use of cannons and strategically placed beams of wood, the golden pages need to be collected to send it home. Each level has t…

Shaun the Sheep - Home Sheep Home 2 Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Shaun the Sheep - Home Sheep Home 2 Review

While perhaps it's too soon to call something like Shaun the Sheep a childhood classic, the character who first saw an appearance during the Wallace & Gromit short 'A Close Shave' has become one of Aardman Animation's staples. Shaun's first appearance on iOS devices along with Shirley and Timmy was decent, but the current sequel to Home Sheep Home has learned from past mistakes, making it a seriously fun and cute puzzler. Much like the original, Home Sheep Home 2 is set in the wor…

Superman Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 9 months ago
Superman Review

GASP! What's this? A Superman game that isn't an abysmal failure of form and function? We here at Appspy are as surprised as you are! Let's face it, the man of steel has not had good representation in the videogame arena over the years. It's a shame too, as with a character who possesses such power and speed, there could be some great gameplay possibilities. While not delivering the answer to the prayers of those looking for the Superman equivalent of an Arkham Asylum, DC Comics have c…

Extraction: Project Outbreak Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Extraction: Project Outbreak Review

One thing that never fails to amaze me about having so many developers trying their hand at breaking in to the iOS market is seeing the creativity that comes from adversity. One of the defining features of the platform is its touch screen, but it can be as much a curse as a boon. Twin-stick shooters have reached an almost amicable middle-ground of 'it works, but isn't perfect' situation, but developer ShortRound have broken out of the box with their latest work for publisher Chillingo…

Poker Pals Review

Poker has taken the world by storm for quite a few years or so and there are plenty excellent poker titles available for your iPhone.

Yes, this is a turn based poker game played on a board. You play your hand, and then your opponent can use the hand you placed to create their own hand. Once the board starts filling, points can be…

Roll in the Hole Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Roll in the Hole Review

When you start playing a game titled Roll in the Hole, you expect two things. Rolling, and a hole to roll into. You'll be happy to know that this game delivers on both those fronts. You play Popo the fat Panda. A mean Gorilla has stolen all your ice cream and you must chase him down the only way you can, by rolling into oblivion. You would think that a game based around rolling would revolve around tilt controls, but funnily enough, Roll in the Hole uses the touch screen. The screen i…

Pixel Ranger Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Pixel Ranger Review

If there's one thing that the 1978 release of Space Invaders lacked it was the human connection. We never saw these invading aliens affecting the life of the average working joe, and that's where Pixel Ranger excels, in giving us the anguish of one lone ranger, as he loses his horse, his wife, and yes, even his sheep to the heartless menace of an alien invading force. Hyperbole aside, Pixel Ranger is a fun little arcade game in the same ballpark as Space Invaders. Alien ships hover ac…

Welcome to the wide world of flick sports! Do you have the intestinal fortitude to conquer the rankings of eight sports and become the flick champion? No?

Cowboy Guns Review

Cowboy Guns Review

Cowboy Guns by C2 Estudio and Chillingo is for all intents and purposes yet another attempt at trying to spin gold out of straw; insert one popular genre (Twin-stick Shooter), add a dash of a popular theme (Wild West) and see what happens. See now, that's the cynic in me talking - in reality what happened was far more interesting. Instead of the usual bland and lifeless endless gameplay, Cowboy Guns focuses heavily on a level-by-level action adventure story. It's an old tale - one of…

Fruit Roll Review

Fruit Roll Review

One thing about playing a lot of games is that you're always looking for new experiences. For instance, we here at AppSpy have never controlled a double jumping, shape shifting piece of fruit as it constantly rolls down a hill, collecting stars and obliterating random wildlife. Did the experience live up to the novelty of that previous sentence? Let's find out. Fruit Roll is a game of highscores. As you roll along you boost your score collecting stars and rolling into enemies. There i…

Race illegal: High Speed 3D Review

Race illegal: High Speed 3D Review

At times I wonder if the Arcade Racer has lost some of its charm, more specifically I wonder if the need to simplify the controls for iOS users has resulted in a genre that has managed to mute an already toned-down sport too far. Race illegal: High Speed 3D by Apetrus and Chillingo tries every trick in the book to wow the player in to continuing to play, but the end result is something that lacks the energy it tries to portray. Sparks, blurs, revving engines, flames and whining turbos…

Swing the Bat Review

Swing the Bat Review

When the call came in to review Swing the Bat, we here at AppSpy were expecting some sort of arcade based home run baseball game, but what we got instead was a nocturnal creature with fangs and a hookshot. Why is a bat swinging around from cave ceiling to bamboo stalk instead of flying? Well its because he hasn't eaten enough fruit to gather enough strength to flap his wings yet. Stay with me here. Swing the Bat bears some resemblance to Tiny Wings, but more in game structure. The lev…
