Tiny Token Empires Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 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 Codeglue By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 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, 11 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, 11 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. Words With Friends took Scrabble and made it into a very popular online game. Aspyr Media has decided to combine the two and this is how we have Poker Pals. 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, 11 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, 11 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, 11 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, 11 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…

Zombieville USA 2 Review

Review Mika Mobile, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Zombieville USA 2 Review

For those who have been iOS gaming for a while now, Zombieville USA is somewhat of a classic icon of the platform - while it wasn't terribly complicated, trying to survive as long as possible while having limited resources made for a fun distraction, if not actually compelling gameplay for some. Times have changed though and what was refreshing compared to the limited amount of titles available back then isn't quite so fresh any more, so how does Mika Mobile's sequel, Zombieville USA 2…

Russian Dancing Men Review

Review SmashMouth Games Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 12 months ago
Russian Dancing Men Review

In 1999 Japanese developer and musician Masay Matsuura, along with his company NanaOn-Sha, released Vib-Ribbon upon the world. While not garnering nearly the same attention as previous releases PaRappa the Rapper and UmJammer Lammy, it carved a niche for itself thanks to its unique approach to rhythm gaming - giving players obstacles timed to music to navigate via a semi-intuitive control scheme. Its lukewarm reception was followed up with relative silence in the rhythm game sphere as…

Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 12 months ago
Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation Review

If I could digress for a moment before stepping in to this review, there are times at which I wonder if parroting what already exists on larger consoles is really the way forward for iOS. While I agree that in many cases we'd otherwise not see games like this on an iDevice, at times it's hard not to feel like being a hyena tearing at the shreds of a carcass. In this way a game can feel disappointing even despite being, relatively speaking, amazing for the platform it's on. With that s…

Worms Crazy Golf Review

Worms Crazy Golf Review

Worms has made an appearance on the iPhone a couple times now with varying success, but we here at AppSpy have to admit this title caught us off guard. Worms...golf? Who thought of this and now that the idea has flourished into a full blown release, can such an odd concept even work? Let's find out. Funnily enough the game plays very similarly to a classic round of Worms. You can select a pre-built worm or make one from the ground up, choosing clubs, voices and even hats (which is fas…

ADVENA Review

ADVENA Review

It has been a while since I've said anything like this, but if you missed out on the days of going to the local arcade and throwing a few coins down on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with a few friends, then you missed out on something really special. Beat'em-ups are usually cathartic in their own right, but the addition of three other players turns it in to an almost unfair brawl where you begrudgingly assist each other, if only to beat the boss and play the next level. ADVENA by Gamev…

Danger Alliance: Battles Review

Danger Alliance: Battles Review

It's not as though we haven't seen developers attempt to bring tactical turn-based titles to the App Store before, though they've generally made a critical mistake or two preventing the often overlooked genre from seeing a sort of revival. Danger Alliance: Battles by TOME Studios keeps things simple, but if you think this means the combat is any less intense for its simplicity you'd be wrong. At the beginning of each match you are able to select a squad from a mix of six unique classe…

Warm Gun Review

Warm Gun Review

I can almost hear my own Mom scalding me in my own memories as I play Warm Gun by Emotional Robots. Though scarily it's not actually her voice, but my own saying 'Just because you can, doesn't mean you should'. It's a worrying moment, but the point still remains - it's true that the iPhone is slowly claiming territory once thought of as exclusive to dedicated handheld or even home consoles, but a bland and featureless FPS deathmatch game does nothing to move iOS forward in this directi…
