Crazy Bomber Review

Crazy Bomber Review

Calm down everybody. This game has nothing to do with terrorists. Well unless you believe the Bomberman franchise has connections to terrorism. I mean, bombs have plenty of other uses than blowing stuff up... right? Anyways, pick your cute little monster and help them blow up all the nasties that inhabit each stage. This is what Crazy Bomber is all about. The allusions to Bomberman stated previously are very apt. You move via a d-pad and pressing the bomb button will drop a bomb, that…

Tank Riders Review

Review Polarbit By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Tank Riders Review

Tank Riders gives the impression of a game from a by-gone era. Some of you will remember such strategic action games like Herzog Zwei and Return Fire, which really were more action than strategy. Whether it's clearing the level of enemies or simply getting to the exit, Tank Riders has the same vibe as you tread around the landscape and blast the holy balls out of the opposition. The tank is controlled by an arcade stick at the bottom left of the screen. It turns invisible when not pre…

NFL Flick Quarterback Review

Review Full Fat By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
NFL Flick Quarterback Review

It has only been three months or so since Full Fat made their last appearance on the App Store and once again the developer has expanded the 'Flick' series to include all 32 official teams in their new title, NFL Flick Quarterback. While the idea was first introduced in Flick Golf Extreme!, Flick QB requires players to judge their flicks to not only accurately reach their goal, but also to predict where the receiver is running to in order to score bonuses. To make things even harder t…

Zen Pinball Review

Review ZEN Studios Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Zen Pinball Review

I'm seriously having flashbacks here - as a child of the 80s and a self-admitted video game nerd, the local video arcades were a veritable haven for me. While pinball games were never my forte, there was a distinct magical allure that came from the newer generation of fancy and complex titles that tried to capture the essence of a franchise, typified by the introduction of Midway's classic Addams Family pinball table. These memories are distinct and powerful, which is why I was surpris…

W.E.L.D.E.R. Review

Review Ayopa Games LLC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
W.E.L.D.E.R. Review

Being a welder of words admittedly sounds rather poncy. However, there's no better explanation for the task set upon you in... 'W.E.L.D.E.R.'. Luckily swapping tiles to create words is a lot of fun, and thanks to some interesting little gameplay additions, a rather unique experience among word and puzzle games is to be had. The core of the game is a mix of Bejeweled and Scrabble. Tiles can be swapped horizontally, vertically, and diagonally to create words of four letters or more. The…

Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies Review

Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies Review

For those yet to try out Call of Duty's interestingly themed co-op addition to their main series, the 'Zombies' titles represent a fun and frantic distraction from an otherwise serious first person shooter. Its initial conversion to the iOS platform was far from well received and its 'sequel' was appreciated even less, but is the third time a charm for Activision's Black Ops Zombies? The game tasks you with the seemingly impossible challenge of defending a map from its unholy attacker…

Infinity Blade II Review

Infinity Blade II Review

Not only did the original Infinity Blade introduce players to a new and cunningly effective combat system for touchscreen-based devices, it pushed the boundaries of what was possible on the iOS platform both visually and conceptually. Its iterative style of gameplay was (for some) simply repetitive, but more than anything else it has opened the doors up to a great story concept, something not lost at all in Chair Entertainment's sequel, Infinity Blade II. While those who played the or…

Tiny Token Empires Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Tiny Token Empires Review

The politics of the ancient world are always good fodder for gaming, mainly due to the main solution to the problems of two nations in that day was to go to war with each other. Tiny Token Empires makes light of these global conflicts in a turn based strategy game that meshes risk, puzzle quest, and the base building of the real time strategy genre. There are two main screens a player will become familiar with over the course of the game. There is the combat screen, and the over-world…

Rocket Riot™ Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Rocket Riot™ Review

Pure unadulterated pixelated mayhem. This is what the general state of play in Rocket Riot represents. The pirate Blockbeard has stolen everyone's legs, so you need the use of a rocket just to get around. This premise sets the stage for level upon level of shooting fun as enemies gang up on you, sports games are played, and the environment blows up in consistent gooey chunks. Unfortunately this fun is hampered somewhat by the controls. A context sensitive arcade stick will appear wher…

Bullet Time HD Review

Review Kiloo By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Bullet Time HD Review

Free games tend to fall in to one of two categories if you excuse the usual subset of 'trial' games from the mix: They're either incredibly polished and ready to bite down on your wallet at every opportunity they gets, or they're a cheap attempt at harvesting ad revenue with simple and overplayed clones. Now that I've made my overly simplistic generalization for the day I can only point a finger in disgust at Bullet Time HD for one major reason: It has contributed to ruining gamer's e…

Poker Pals Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
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…

Minecraft – Pocket Edition Review

Review Mojang By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Minecraft – Pocket Edition Review

Like so many others I have spent my time with and enjoyed playing Minecraft on my PC. While there are debates about whether it is a 'game' in the strictest of terms, there's no denying the sense of satisfaction that comes from setting a goal and working your way towards it. However, Minecraft - Pocket Edition... ... well there's no other way to say it other than "it's simply the free java browser version for your iOS device of choice," and this alone wouldn't be so bad, but it's also…

Mad Rush Review

Review Krivorukoff LLP By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Mad Rush Review

Noop always wanted to be a galactic racer like his father, and now that the evil Mr. Storm is trying to attack Earth, he has a chance to make his dream come true... by farting! It turns out that the propulsion system of galactic racing is of a more organic variety. Mar Rush has you versing a number of racing opponents. To move on, you need to win all three race types; diehard, slalom, and nitro. All are variations on the same idea. When the flag turns green, press the fart button whic…

Janryumon PLUS (Mahjong) Review

Review NCSOFT By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Janryumon PLUS (Mahjong) Review

Janryumon by NCSoft is simultaneously the most amazing and the most frustrating game I've played on an iOS device and this includes games I've either praised like a gibbering fan-boy or scalded for mistakes that go beyond basic flaws. This is because Janryumon is a client to play Reach Mahjong online against other players around the world, but more importantly the gameplay behind Mahjong is so rich - is so complex - that unless you are practiced in the game already, you WILL fail and f…

Riptide GP Review

Review Vector Unit By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Riptide GP Review

Full disclosure aside, we here at AppSpy are big fans of the Waverace series on the Nintendo 64 and Gamecube. Will that bias affect our review of the iPhone's latest jet-ski racer, Riptide GP? Well if it's well made there's nothing to worry about. Let us continue. The first thing you'll notice upon loading up a race is the game looks incredibly slick. The water is beautiful and everything is nice and crisp. The game automatically accelerates (although you can turn that off if you wish…
