Billabong Surf Trip Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Billabong Surf Trip Review

For some, the sun, the beach and surfing are practically a way of life; something I'm quite acquainted with living a mere handful of blocks from the home of the international clothing company 'Billabong'. Billabong Surf Trip by Chillingo tries to realistically capture the thrill and challenge of riding a wave while performing tricks to score points as you make your way on a world-wide tour of some of the best beaches you could visit. To do this you'll need to master Surf Trip's rather…

Cut the Rope Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Cut the Rope Review

Gah! I seem to be experiencing a cute overload lately - my manliness (NB: may not actually be manly) is experiencing some withdrawals. Aww to heck with it... Om Nom is just too darn cute to get angry at and I blame Chillingo's latest game Cut the Rope for introducing his fierce cuddliness to me. Om Nom the candy-eating monster is hungry and you need to feed him, but while you're at it you may as well collect the stars littering each level as well. The basic gameplay is that of a physi…

Be2 - Escape from Pingland Review

Review Kismik By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Be2 - Escape from Pingland Review

Be2 is a pixel and he's sick of being battered back and forth like a ball on a court for the rest of his electronic life. In 'Be2 - Escape from Pongland' by Kismik, you'll need to manipulate the acceleration of this pixel to navigate him through dastardly mazes and games he was never intended to be in as he quests for freedom from the video game world. In order to get Be2 around these various environments you'll need to impart added momentum to his movement as he constantly glides or…

GravBot Review

Review Team Phobic By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
GravBot Review

In GravBot by Team Phobic, the story behind how an emoticon-displaying tv with wheels can manipulate its personal field of gravity and why he's collecting batteries is left up in the air. But honestly, who cares when you're having this much fun trying to help this cute balancing box to get his job done? As you'd expect from the title, your little robot can manipulate gravity to make his way around each of the game's maze-like structures, filled with lasers, deadly robots and traps rea…

Monster Falls Review

Review Ticking Box Studio By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Monster Falls Review

UPDATE: A minor update for Monster Falls was released almost simultaneously with our review that has directly addressed some of our concerns. In particular, the physics remain somewhat floaty, but your monster is ever so slightly more responsive on accelerating left and right, making life much easier. Also, some casual players may have been left repeating levels more than they'd like to progress, but this has also been fixed and the difficulty scaling feels just right as players will n…

Oh! My Gun! HD - Kill, hit to go level up! Review

Review Mobile Force By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Oh! My Gun! HD - Kill, hit to go level up! Review

I'm a little bit worried to admit that I enjoy 'Oh! My Gun! - Kill, hit ladies to go level up!' by Mobile Force. It's not an excellent or seriously entertaining physics based puzzle title and the basic theme borders on disturbing, but the simple fun recklessness of its gameplay kept me hooked far longer than I'd care to admit. Your objective is to clear out each level of all the women that are standing around in precarious locations next to bombs, heavy objects and spiked wheels by sh…

Hardcore Dirt Bike Review

Review XLab Technologies By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Hardcore Dirt Bike Review

Hardcore Dirt Bike by XLab Technologies is, as you might have already guessed at this point, a dirt bike racing game from the creators of MonsterTruck Rally. Much like the first game you can control your bike by steering your iDevice left and right while accelerating and braking by touching the right and left hand sides respectively. Should you gain enough air you can also tap a small button on the left side to trigger a 'trick', earning additional credits on top of those you get by c…

Rocketeer Review

Rocketeer Review

Rocketeer by Wired Developments is, depending on how you look at it, either the most frustrating physics puzzler you could get your hands on or a great few hours of distraction. Rocketeer does an admirable job of trying to appeal to a casual gaming audience while still leaving itself open to the hardcore crowd, but a few wires have been crossed in the process, making it hard to completely engage with this puzzle title. Your goal is to get just one rocketeer in to the wormhole of each…

Milk My Unicorn Review

Review Splashworks.com Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
Milk My Unicorn Review

Today we're keeping things short and sweet here at AppSpy and what a better game for keeping things on the move than Milk My Unicorn by Splashworks. When you get right down to it, Milk My Unicorn is just another 'Simon Says' title and players are given the opportunity to demonstrate their recall skills by pulling the teats of various animals (fictitious or otherwise) while doing so. Once you've conquered a specific animal you'll unlock a 'free play' mode to milk them at your own leisu…


No, Human Review

Review vol-2 By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 3 months ago
No, Human Review

'No, Human' by vol-2 has been getting a lot of attention lately and not without good reason as it's just more fun than it seems to have any right to be. Despite being extremely quick to finish the game's charm lies in the quick-fire gameplay that is punctuated now and then by moments that make you laugh, keeping you invested in what happens right through to the end. No, Human is a basic physics puzzler where you need to fling 'fireballs' in order to rid the universe of humans who have…

MotoGP 2010 Review

Review iwin, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
MotoGP 2010 Review

Let's not beat around the bush - if you have a major license like MotoGP then there's going to be some minimum expectations for quality. MotoGP 2010 by I-play is, at best, an amusing title to try, but certainly not a racing title worthy of an official license. What is given as 'accessible' controls turns out to be a horrible facsimile of similar racing titles that sport a basic tilt-to-turn and two buttons to brake/accelerate and boost. Acceleration is handled automatically, however t…


Bumps Review

Review Utopian Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Bumps Review

In Bumps by Utopian Games you'll need to free your fellow orbs after being abducted by an alien race looking for a tasty meal. You'll need to bounce or 'bump' your way to freedom in the 54 currently available levels, making use of a simple, but extremely clever physics system that rewards careful timing and positioning to unlock your friends from their delicious fate. For most of the puzzles all you have to do is drag the available small orbs around the screen before hitting the 'go'…

So Long, Oregon! Review

Review Blinkbat Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
So Long, Oregon! Review

'So Long, Oregon!' by Blinkbat Games pokes fun at the classic edutainment title Oregan Trail and honestly, why shouldn't it? The distant echo of words like 'dysentery' still litter the cultural landscape and it was high time a game like this came along to bring closure to this painful chapter in the lives of many gamers. Almost everything about this title reaches for parody, from the old-school VGA/EGA style graphics to the inclusion of 'realistic' physics that are almost guaranteed t…

Solipskier Review

Review Mikengreg By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
Solipskier Review

It's not uncommon to see the occasional popular Flash title making its way on to the App Store, but it's somewhat rare to find a game that seems like it was always destined for the App Store. Solipskier by Mikengreg has you rocking out as you jump, flip and ski along at super-sonic speed in this horizontal 'runner' and instead of taking direct control you'll need to draw the landscape to keep him safe while hitting as many gates as possible to score it large. The line drawing is incre…

The Incident Review

Review Big Bucket Software By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 4 months ago
The Incident Review

Curiosity is a powerful tool and when leveraged in the right way it can drag players in to a game and keep them sucked in until they're well and truly hooked. The world is falling apart at the seams in 'The Incident' by Big Bucket Software and your poor unfortunate character will need to dodge, push and climb his way out of the ever increasing pile of trash to find out why this is happening. In each of the game's levels you'll need to dodge junk flung down in to the screen, allowing i…
