Hands-on with The Detail, the mature crime adventure where every choice counts

We've got our hands on an early build of The Detail, a dark and gritty adventure game that'll be hitting mobiles and tablets soon. Life as a detective solving murder cases is pretty grim, as you'd imagine, but The Detail explores a number of subjects other titles dare to even touch upon. Here's how we got on with The Detail.…

Hands-on with DogBiscuit: The Quest for Crayons, where children's drawings build the universe of a ridiculously adorable cartoon dog

While DogBiscuit: The Quest for Crayons is absolutely a game aimed squarely at children, that doesn't mean grown ups won't be able to appreciate its finer qualities. Take the eponymous hero, for a start. DogBiscuit is cute, expressive, and exceptionally well-animated. Then there are his mates, also named after tasty treats, the genius use of your kid's drawings to create the landscape, and the pleasantly paced story beats.…

Hands-on with Calvino Noir, the dark and filmic 1930s heist adventure

While Pocket Gamer Connects was generally a light-hearted affair, there was one game that really brought a strong sense of moody darkness to the whole shebang: Calvino Noir. Our pals at Pocket Gamer have written about Calvino Noir before, but this is the first chance us here at AppSpy has had to grab direct footage for you to see this thing in motion. And it was worth the wait, because as you'll see from the video, Calvino Noir is absolutely gorgeous, in its own smoky, sinister, brooding sort of way.…

Hands-on with Mirrored, the entirely creepy first person adventure

Feature By Peter Willington, 7 months, 2 weeks ago
Hands-on with Mirrored, the entirely creepy first person adventure

Mirrored is a cross between The Room, Myst, and an episode of The X-Files. It's got all those typical adventure game elements you'd expect from a game like Myst, the intrigue and “escape the room” feel of The Room, plus the ominous atmosphere of the adventures of Mulder and Scully. But Mirrored is more than the sum of its parts, as I show you in this quick look at a very early build of the game.…

Secret Files Tunguska Review

Review Deep Silver By Alex Beech, 10 months, 1 week ago
Secret Files Tunguska Review

There is a simple question to ask yourself before playing Secret Files Tunguska: if you wanted to eavesdrop on a conversation, would your first instinct be to sellotape a mobile phone to your target's cat? If the answer is yes, then Tunguska's puzzles will be second nature. However, if this confluence of events seems unreasonable, and trial-and-error seems like a chore, then this may not the point-and-click adventure for you. Fortunately, the touchscreen conversion of the o…

Powerpuff Girls: Defenders of Townsville Review

Review Cartoon Network By Alex Beech, 11 months ago
Powerpuff Girls: Defenders of Townsville Review

From the moment Powerpuff Girls: Defenders of Townsville starts it shows a clear love of its source material. The first choice the game has you make is between two different visual and audio treatments for the girls: one that matches the original series, and one for their new CGI interpretation. While this has no impact on gameplay, it shows a respect for the fans, letting them enjoy their favorite version of the heroes. The action begins when the evil monkey Mojo Jojo lures the…
