The World Ends with You: Solo Remix for iPad iPad Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 7 months ago
The World Ends with You: Solo Remix for iPad iPad Review

You know a game has a grip on you when you say something like, "I'd have bought a Nintendo DS just to play it". The World Ends With You (TWEWY) was just such a game for me, and knowing that I'd get to play it again on the iOS platform immediately dredged up a host of happy memories spent lazily enjoying its Beat'em-up RPG-like gameplay. The reason I'm gushing from the outset is to establish a base-level of 'rose-tinted glasses' for our readers/viewers and perhaps to soften the blow of…

Sunshine Review

Review Morbidware By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 7 months ago
Sunshine Review

The battle between the forces of light and dark has been a long time favorite to base a game around, but until Sunshine, never did it seem to be taken so literally. The black holes are threatening to consume the universe into nothingness by taking over all the suns, and as a lowly photon, it's your job to stop them. How does a photon go up against a black hole? Well they don't, but by planet hopping and collecting stars, you can make the universe a safer place. Just beware, this task i…

Horn™ Review

Horn™ Review

When Phosphor Games came out with The Dark Meadow they proved one thing in particular - they know how to craft a world from the ground up. Their latest release Horn comes to us care of casual gaming giant 'Zynga', but its a far cry from the time-sink cash grabs of the past, teleporting players to a world that melds adventuring classics like Zelda and Fable with the visual appeal of Team Ico's best, and ties it all together with Infinity Blade's slashing RPG-lite gameplay. In short, it'…

The Infinity Project 2 Review

Review Crazy Robot LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 8 months ago
The Infinity Project 2 Review

Infinity Project 2 by Crazy Robot Games is an ambitious title - it's clear from even the briefest of time spent in their first-person shooter that it's the culmination of a huge body of effort from a small developer. Let it not be said that the depth of content on offer is unappreciated, however, it's hard not to feel a little disappointed with the way it's presented. You continue your quest from the previous title, fighting against the Talon who have used a time-space portal to invad…

Fieldrunners 2 Review

Review Subatomic Studios, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
Fieldrunners 2 Review

When Fieldrunners by Subatomic Studios first launched, AppSpy wasn't even up and running. However, it was one of the very first to be reviewed and with good reason - Fieldrunners came to define the tower defense genre for touch devices, combining an open-layout system and grueling challenges that required players to design their mazes carefully to survive as long as possible. Almost four years in the making, the sequel finally hits, but with plenty of regular updates to the original a…

Tiny Wings HD Review

Review Andreas Illiger By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
Tiny Wings HD Review

With so many auto-runners and endless titles attempting to pack in bigger environments, faster gameplay and deadlier enemies, the appearance of Tiny Wings by Andreas Illiger wasn't just a breath of fresh air, it was a complete game-changer. All of a sudden gamers had objectives to complete with tangible rewards and challenging achievements to attempt - the fact that you were playing as a bird with tiny wings that's unable to fly properly was the cute icing on the cake. Now almost a ye…

Bridge The Gap 2 Review

Review ashley jackson By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 9 months ago
Bridge The Gap 2 Review

If Bridge the Gap 2 has taught me anything, it's that pirates are capable of only the most rudimentary physical abilities. If you want them to not fall down chasms to their untimely demise, they need the invisible hand of a pirate engineer to place wooden poles, barrels and boxes down so they can not only get to their precious flag, but collect any gold coins along the way. Pirates do love their booty after all. Each level gives you a set number of resources to use, and a limited sele…

Babel Rising 3D Review

Review Ubisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
Babel Rising 3D Review

Consider this reviewer slightly impressed, if only because a relatively unknown, but otherwise unique and fun title has not only received a sequel, but a considerably significant one under a major publisher. Babel Rising 3D by Ubisoft and Mando Productions places you in the morbidly entertaining position of a vengeful god, punishing the humans who would, in their vanity, seek to reach heaven through their blasphemous tower - it's dark, it's funny, and you will fail. Constantly. That l…

Extreme Skater Review

Review Miniclip.com By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Extreme Skater Review

I guess there comes a point in any skateboarder's life when all the skate parks, half pipes, ramps, and grind rails just don't shine with the challenge of excitement that once was. One lucky skater was in the forest when a crystallized meteor crashed, not only giving him super powers, but converting the landscape into the extreme skate park of his dreams. Welcome to Extreme Skater. Each level is an obstacle course that ends with your skater reaching a chunk of crystal. The game starts…

Virtua Tennis Challenge Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
Virtua Tennis Challenge Review

Unlike so many who fondly remember Virtua Tennis from its heyday on the Dreamcast, I recall many a shiny dollar being pumped in to the machine at the local Arcade (or if I was lucky, a bunch of free plays during a lock-in night). Combining both the complexity of athletic Tennis and the simplicity of Arcade controls, it was a smash hit. Now on the iOS it has a chance to ensnare even more people, but as you'd expect it's not an entirely smooth ride. Despite the minimum fourth-gen iDevic…

Golf Squared Review

Review Dynamo Games By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Golf Squared Review

There are two types of golf games on the iPhone, and it's not as simple as breaking them up into simulation and arcade virtual golf experiences. Most golf games are in 3D, and colorful characters and crazy power-ups aside, they represent a somewhat accurate portrayal of playing the sport. Another type of game has arisen on mobile devices however, and Golf Squared is the latest of these 2D side-scrolling golf experiences, which eschew the finer details of the game for odd level design a…

Defender Chronicles II: Heroes of Athelia Review

Review Gimka Entertainment, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Defender Chronicles II: Heroes of Athelia Review

The first Defender Chronicles was rated quite highly by us here at AppSpy, and with good reason. When Tower Defense games were all the rage on the iPhone, it approached the genre with its own spin on things, which included vertical combat, designated build areas, upgradable heroes, and a whole host of additional game modes. This meant fans had enough content to keep them happy for a very long time. Years later now, the sequel is upon us. With a fresh coat of paint and more hero customi…

LostWinds2: Winter of the Melodias Review

When last we met Toku and the wind-spirit Enril, the evil spirit Balasar was defeated and all was well in Mistralis. It was a short, but intriguing journey filled with exploration and a handful of puzzles, and now with more evil threatening the lands, it's up to Toku and Enril to once again save the world. Ultimately LostWinds felt all too short, almost a teaser of what is possible when platforming meets gesture controls. The sequel takes things even further, implementing fixes from t…

Review Dark Realm Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Pandemic 2.5 Review

It's a strange thing, but some may know the meme, but not the game that was responsible for creating it - I am of course referring to Pandemic II by Dark Realm Studios. Even if you were half way around the world, Madagascar closed its borders if it heard you had a runny nose. The developer is back, this time in iOS form, to bring its infamous infection simulator to the masses, adding in a few tweaks to make it a worthwhile purchase for returning fans. Your task is simple - infect and…

THE KING OF FIGHTERS-i 2012. Review

Review SNK PLAYMORE By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
THE KING OF FIGHTERS-i 2012. Review

When The King of Fighters-i first found its way on to the App Store and managed to rival its the Street Fighter titles, it was all I could do to contain my joy. Once again, developers had managed to defy conventions and turn a game that requires insanely precise controls in to something not only playable, but also competitive. The King of Fighters-i 2012 keeps the ball rolling and in much the same way that Volt did for Street Fighter IV. More to the point, those expecting a change-up…
