Acme Planetary Defense Review

Review Taptoon Games By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Acme Planetary Defense Review

When you stop and think about it for a moment, we humans must be colossal jerks. There's really no other reason that in so many games, TV shows and movies, our homeworld is under attack by a hostile alien force. Oh sure in Acme Planetary Defense, most of your time is spent knocking asteroids out of existence, but we're pretty sure that those asteroids are being lobbed by aliens. Not only cause nuclear missiles accompany them, but sometimes they rock up to pelt us with lasers, or just t…

Saving Private Sheep 2 Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Saving Private Sheep 2 Review

Wolves eat sheep. Everybody knows this, but did you know that a well placed porcupine will cause a wolf to cough that sheep right back up no worse for wear? A sheepish general observed by luck this phenomenon and now armed with this knowledge, a platoon of sheep soldiers, slingshots, and a load of porcupines dedicated to the cause, it's time to wage war on the wolves and rescue as many wooly brethren as possible. In the vein of Angry Birds and the countless other games in the physics…

Wacoon Jump! - Super Land Platformer Review

Review Yannick Berthier By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Wacoon Jump! - Super Land Platformer Review

The heyday of the platformer was the 16-bit era of the early 90s. At this time many games tried to emulate the success of those on top of the genre, but few really came close to understanding what made the Marios and Sonics work so well. Lately on the iPhone we've seen a small resurgence of the 2d platformer, and Wawa Land is the latest entry. What we have here is a game that has a lot of great ideas wrapped in good presentation. Why are these good ideas you ask? Well because most of t…

Escape from Age of Monsters Review

Review Ayopa Games LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Escape from Age of Monsters Review

'Escape from' is Ayopa Games and Massive Joe Studios latest addition to the 'Age of Monsters' franchise - a series that started off with a free Rock, Paper, Scissors game that introduced us to the world. Gizzard has been chosen by gauntlets infused with power enough to destroy the monsters rampaging around the city, but first he'll need to escape with children in-tow. The first thing that stands out about Escape is its presentation - on the latest iOS devices the game looks absolutely…

Hambo Review

Review Miniclip.com By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Hambo Review

Those familiar with Miniclip's earlier titles will be right at home with their latest cartoony puzzler, Hambo. In a way it's an extension of games like Fragger, tasking you with pulling off complicated shots by exploiting simplified physics, but this time the task is a little more personal than a grenade. Not by much though - instead of lobbing an explosive over a wall, you're more often tasked with shooting a bullet directly at your piggy enemies. Velocity isn't necessarily important…

TwinGo! Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
TwinGo! Review

Sometimes two people are inseparable. You've seen it in real life when your friends fall in love and suddenly your friend becomes merged with their partner creating some strange sort of amorphous twin. As a videogame mechanic however it can be quite creative and provide a nice base for plenty of perplexing puzzle gameplay. This is what Twingo has to offer. It's you goal to use the power of swiping to guide Fuyu and Natsu to their respective colored pads at the end of each level. The c…

Monster Flip Review

Review PikPok By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
Monster Flip Review

[Monster Flip is the Mini-Review for the Friday Wrap-Up for the 9th of March, 2012] When it comes to presentation, developer PikPok doesn't mess about - 'vibrant', 'colorful' and 'exciting' are generally always applicable to their work, with some efforts (such as their work on Monsters Ate My Condo) taking things to a whole new extreme level. Despite its clean appearance, Monster Flip is no less energetic, especially once you get in to the roll of things and kick off a huge combo, com…

Monster Wars Review

Review Liv Games By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 2 months ago
Monster Wars Review

Fans of Liv Games' previous head-to-head castle defense amalgamation Legendary Wars, should be happy about the release of Monster Wars. Less a sequel, and more a companion piece, in this title you take control of the monsters that have been slayed en masse in not only games of this genre but pretty much every fantasy game out there. It's time for revenge! While the majority of the gameplay is your standard castle vs castle game, there is more to think about than which low cost monster…

JAZZ: Trump's journey Review

Review Bulkypix By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
JAZZ: Trump's journey Review

For some, Jazz music is nothing but a cacophony of sound that thinks it's somehow clever for all of its solo jams and dueling instruments... to others it's a divine form of music filled with rich unique textures and a bold sense of life that's always changing. JAZZ: Trump's journey by EggBall Games and Bulkypix embodies the second viewpoint by creating a platformer rich in appearance, bold in its musical aesthetic and always ready to throw a new challenge in your path. You control Tru…

Woody Woodpecker Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Woody Woodpecker Review

When loading up Woody Woodpecker initially, it turned out to be not what we were expecting. First it looked like it might be a cartoon themed platformer. Then the character selection screen comes up and it looks like a kart racer. Turns out that's not exactly right either. Basically this game is what would happen if you took Tiny Wings and turned it into a racing game, with each character from the Woody Woodpecker show vying for first position when they cross the finish line. An invent…

Snoticles Review

Review [adult swim] By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 3 months ago
Snoticles Review

Be honest, unless you're a young boy, you probably aren't going to be enticed by four blobs of snot called the Snoticles. We here at AppSpy don't blame you as we were pretty apprehensive loading up this title, despite it being from Adult Swim and the great track record of quality games they've had this year. Boy were we wrong. While it won't set the world on fire, Snoticles is a solid and fun physics puzzle experience. Zit, Dread, Spark, and Snot are the Snoticles and they're here to…

Major Mayhem Review

Review [adult swim] By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Major Mayhem Review

Ninjas are attacking and they've taken your girlfriend somehow. That's the premise of Adult Swim's latest foray into mobile gaming. As Major Mayhem, you need to travel deep into the heart of enemy territory and slaughter hundreds of ninjas mercilessly to make the world safer... and for booty. The game has sort of a Time Crisis / Operation Wolf vibe to it. You run from cover to cover and you pop out to mow down ninjas. Your gun is fired by tapping the screen where you want to shoot, an…

Snoopy’s Street Fair Review

Snoopy’s Street Fair Review

I have to confess that I've somewhat wilfully ignored much of what is on TV for the last decade, that is to say, I own a TV, but much of what I watch is thanks to DVDs or the snippets I inevitably see now and then. As such I've lost touch on a pivotal annual classic that is the inevitable re-run of the Peanuts shows and movies. I go in to this review with the assumption that you have grown up with or know about this cartoon world to some degree. Beeline Interactive arguably succeeded…

Shantae: Risky's Revenge Review

Shantae: Risky's Revenge Review

Shantae is a half genie. She finds herself on a quest to travel all over Sequin Land to stop the evil pirate wench Risky Boots, who has stolen a magic lamp capable of terrible power. Predictability aside, what we have here is an old school platformer as you travel left or right from screen to screen, collecting items, defeating enemies, and engaging in boss encounters. Platformer fans should feel right at home. The game uses an on screen joystick and buttons. Shantae can move left or…

Princess Punt Review

Princess Punt Review

What if a developer was to take angry birds, and fashion an RPG system around the addictive, flinging gameplay? What is the RPG system incorporated included shades of unique classes such as fighters, lancers, archers, and wizards, that all had their unique methods of attack? What if each level had multiple difficulty settings that unlocked more interesting loot and experience, and what if these special items recovered could be leveled up and mastered for more damage? Sounding good? Wel…
