Super Crate Box Review

Review Vlambeer By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Super Crate Box Review

Too often gamers bring down the mighty wrath of the collective community down upon a game for being a 'clone'. While sometimes justified (especially if artistic theft is involved), more often than not gamers are simply witnessing the natural progression of any new idea to mass production and eventual refinement in to a genre. Super Crate Box by Vlambeer and Halfbot is arguably the progenitor of its particular flavor and style of arcade action-platforming, but with competitors already m…

Foodie The Bug Review

Foodie The Bug Review

Foodie plans to travel the world. To make sure his energy levels are up he needs to constantly be snacking on multicolored jelly beans. With plenty of power-ups to boost him along and increase his intake, and an upgrade system to improve his abilities, can you help him reach his goal (which resides at the end of each level)? Upon first glance this looks like another slingshot physics game, but the flinging is only for launch. Once in the air Foodie hovers along with the iPhone being u…

Snoticles Review

Review [adult swim] By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 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…

Tongue Tied! Review

Review Mojo Bones Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Tongue Tied! Review

Animal lovers beware: Tongue Tied! by Mojo Bones is so insanely, heartwarmingly, saccharin coatedly loveable that you may want to buy it on impulse... don't. Without the incredibly affectionate characters of Mick and Ralph (the tongue-tied doggy-duo), you might just throw your iDevice at a wall, so stay a while and listen before making that final decision. Each of the game's 50 currently available levels is a physics playground with the lovable dogs acting as your tool for point scori…

Mini Motor Racing Review

Review The Binary Mill By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 months ago
Mini Motor Racing Review

Sometimes, despite everything screaming at you saying it's wrong, a game can manage to remain compelling. This is how Mini Motor Racing feels and despite The Binary Mill's best efforts the game is realistically far from perfect... and yet the next level loads up much like the last and the numbers keep going up and up and up. The first thing that grabs you about the racer is its cute aesthetic, with its miniaturized world populated with chubbily proportioned vehicles ranging from Sport…

Zen Pinball Review

Review ZEN Studios Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 10 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…

Saving Yello Review

Review dreamfab By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Saving Yello Review

It must be hard to think of intriguing scenarios to justify the stretching physics puzzle gameplay that has become so popular in the last year or so. Yello is sitting in his bowl (he's a fish by the way) when a sinister hand removes him from his home. The rest of the the game is returning to your fishbowl via some rather incredible jumps, all the while grabbing points for raining down destruction on all the toys and structures that stand in your way. To make Yello jump, simply pull ba…

Bag It! Review

Review Hidden Variable Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Bag It! Review

I consider my time spent in retail as a sort of front-loaded penance for the rest of my life - anyone who has had to grind away time dealing with humanity on a piecemeal basis will appreciate how it either makes or breaks you, turning you in to a social wizard or a raving lunatic ready to set people on fire. These days self-checkout machines are passing the frustration back to the customer as they attempt to quickly scan and safely pack away their groceries before being yelled at from…

Corpse Granny Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Corpse Granny Review

Most grannies already have one foot in the grave. One has to wonder if becoming a zombie starts to reverse the aging process. If anything, it might make them more agile in death than they were in life. It's not just grannies that have risen from the grave in this game however. The undead are spreading like a plague, and with a set of well placed fireballs, you can help put them back to rest. Essentially the game is cut the rope. Each level will have zombies to exterminate and fireball…

Gangstar Rio: City of Saints Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months ago
Gangstar Rio: City of Saints Review

It hardly bears pointing out that the Gangstar series from Gameloft has taken its inspiration from Rockstar's GTA series, but where previous incarnations of Gangstar were happy to simply ape older generations of GTA, the latest version takes a swing at something entirely new. Unfortunately it's a swing and a miss as no matter how you look at it, Gangstar Rio: City of Saints fails to excite and inspire the same sort of sandbox fun it attempts to emulate. The problems are evident early…

Bring Me Down Review

Review Hany Malek By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 11 months ago
Bring Me Down Review

You know those physics puzzle games where you have to remove blocks to safely drop a character on the ground below without having him roll off the edge? Bring me Down is one of those games... in 3d! Does the extra dimension help or hinder? Let us find out. Each level starts with this monster trapped in a spherical cage. By tapping on the blocks he's resting on, they disappear, and then physics happens. The goal is to get the monster to the ground below (along with the two bananas as w…

Bike Baron Review

Bike Baron Review

Bike Baron by Qwiboo and Mountain Sheep is not the first to strap a happy-go-lucky stunt driver in to a vehicle and point them towards a lethal combination of ramps and explosives, nor will it be the last. What it lacks in original concept it makes up for with sheer polished gameplay and design, going so far as to also include the iOS community in the process of level creation. If you're looking for a storyline, you're sorely out of luck as the Bike Baron is simply a daredevil without…

Roll in the Hole Review

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…

Commander Pixman Review

Commander Pixman Review

As someone who had to slog his way through the 80s and 90s and the gaming obsession with platformers, coming across one of these genre classics these days is met with trepidation. I say this because we have a rich history of what does and doesn't work, including other less tangible aspects like how the should 'feel'. Commander Pixman gets the first part right as it smooshes Super Meat Boy with the visual stylings of the free game Star Guard, but something about this game by One Minute…

Monster Island Review

Review Miniclip.com By Dave Flodine, 3 years ago
Monster Island Review

One has to wonder when the gameplay concept of flinging a creature across an oddly shaped level in order to destroy other creatures who are minding their own business becomes stale. It doesn't look like that scenario is upon us anytime soon however since Monster Island calls on the inspiration of Miniclip's earlier title Fragger to deliver a fun physics based flinger. So it seems that there are some monsters enjoying the monster-y good life on their monster island. Then some monster t…
