LostWinds2: Winter of the Melodias Review

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 Klik! Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
FastBall 3 Review

[This title was the featured Mini-Review for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 11th of May, 2012] The Impossible Game is responsible for opening gamers eyes to the beauty and simplicity of jumping in platformers. Endless runners do much the same, but they can't be as unfair in their design. FastBall by Klik! Games sticks with small levels packed with jumping challenges that eventually require insane feats of precise timing to complete. Unfortunately the third in the series has dropped t…

Inotia 4 Review

Review Com2uS USA, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Inotia 4 Review

As it is, and so shall it always be, given the fullness of time, yet another sequel to a somewhat popular KRPG series makes its way on to the App Store. Inotia 4: Assassin of Berkel by Com2us is the next on the chopping block, and it seemingly fails to learn from the past, instead seeking to exploit its free-to-play status. You are once again in the control of a teenager keen to prove himself (in this case as the 'virtuoso' of the Shadow Tribe) and you're thrown in to a 'whirlwind' st…

Saving Private Sheep 2 Review

Review Bulkypix By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 2 months ago
Saving Private Sheep 2 Review

Wolves eat sheep. Everybody knows this, but did you know that a well placed porcupine will cause a wolf to cough that sheep right back up no worse for wear? A sheepish general observed by luck this phenomenon and now armed with this knowledge, a platoon of sheep soldiers, slingshots, and a load of porcupines dedicated to the cause, it's time to wage war on the wolves and rescue as many wooly brethren as possible. In the vein of Angry Birds and the countless other games in the physics…

Bug Princess 2 Review

Review CAVE CO.,LTD. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
Bug Princess 2 Review

There are shooters and then there are bullet-hell games. Yes, we've said it before, but CAVE's long-running obsession with placing players against impossible odds is well known to iOS gamers now, but even amongst fans there's a game that remains utterly daunting. Bug Princess 2, the 2006 Arcade sequel to the classic original, takes no prisoners thanks to its ridiculously scaling up modes of difficulty. By almost all other accounts, Bug Princess 2 is easy to pick up thanks to its famil…

Hunters 2 Review

Review Rodeo Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Hunters 2 Review

Rodeo Games first impressed us here at AppSpy when they released their clean and simple strategic turn-based shooter 'Hunters: Episode One' last year. Its weakness, though, was a lack of depth, choosing instead to generate near-infinite amounts of content to make up for this. Their newly released sequel has gone a step further, opting to provide players with more opportunities to customize their gun-toting crew and more importantly, packaging in a storyline to keep you motivated. It's…

Angry Birds Space Review

Review Rovio Entertainment Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Angry Birds Space Review

If any game on the App Store deserves a true sequel, it's Angry Birds. Rovio Mobile's classic hit still shapes the way in which developers approach making games for iOS device owners and while some of that success is owed to marketing, it's hard to argue against the game's approachable and addictive design. Now, after many half-steps, Angry Birds Space is the first title in the series to move the game forward, giving fans of the series something they can truly sink their teeth in to.…

Zuma's Revenge! Review

Review PopCap By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Zuma's Revenge! Review

The original Zuma was one of the titles that cemented Popcap's reputation for developing games that were simple, fun, and addictive. Since the release, many games have copied Zuma's formula, and while many of them have been quite good, there's nothing like the genuine article, and that leads us to the 2009 sequel Zuma's Revenge making its way onto the app store. A lone frog washes up on a desert island plagued by vengeful tiki spirits. Luckily the frog is able to burp up and shoot col…

CHAOS RINGS II Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
CHAOS RINGS II Review

When people ask about 'Triple-A' titles for the iOS platform, SQUARE ENIX and Media.Vision's 'Chaos Rings' series invariably works its way in to the conversation. In some ways it's an unfair example and not to diminish the importance of the first title, but it doesn't hold up compared to similar titles in the genre across other platforms. Omega, the sequel, acted more as an extension of the story of the world the characters inhabited, switching up the central focus and giving a strong…

Cavorite 2 Review

Review Cascadia Games LLC By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
Cavorite 2 Review

I bet you thought that after the first Cavorite, Dr. Cavor escaped from the moon with his anti-gravity formula and made his way back home safe and sound. Not when there's a sequel to make! Running out of fuel, the good doctor makes an emergency lunar landing and goes to work in the moon's caverns to find enough gems to finally get off this tide-controlling rock for good. If you've played the first game, you should know what you're in for. Each level is a small puzzle that is based aro…

iBomber Defense Pacific Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 4 months ago
iBomber Defense Pacific Review

And the tower defense games just keep on coming! It's hard to be completely cynical about gross over-saturation of a genre when a developer does such a good job of creating an entry into said genre. Not only that but this is a sequel to iBomber Defense which was a pretty solid tower defense title to begin with. As the name suggests, battle now is primarily on the Pacific rim, and while that gives a lot of opportunity for battleships to attack beach-heads or enemies to float upstream, t…

League of Evil 2 Review

Review Ravenous Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
League of Evil 2 Review

When League of Evil first hit the App Store, it proved (once again) that platformers don't have to feel clunky and imprecise thanks to poor controls. The snappy and responsive system of double-jumps, wall-sliding and wall-bouncing allowed for complex level designs that tested the players skill, making every star earned feel like a badge of honor. League of Evil 2 doesn't so much as push that boundary any further as it refines an already amazing title in to something with better visual…

Review CAVE CO.,LTD. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
DoDonPachi Blissful Death Review

While DoDonpachi Blissful Death (or Dai Ou Jou) was the fourth title in the DonPachi series, it was also considered the first true sequel to DoDonPachi. For those on iOS devices, it's CAVE's second release of the series for the platform, and for those following the story of the series this makes it an interesting release as it puts you in control of the very ships and dolls that went on to become your enemies in 'Resurrection'. The tangled, weaving storyline of the DonPachi series is…

Review Polarbit By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Reckless Racing 2 Review

Strangely it doesn’t feel as though much time has passed since Pixelbite first introduced iOS gamers to their Reckless Racing franchise, though this may be in-part thanks to a mid-year release of Reckless Getaway reminding players of what the developer can pull off. Reckless Racing 2 doesn’t disappoint as it blasts on to the App Store, showing just how top-down racing should look, feel and play on hand-held touchscreen devices. From the outset the game feels rough and toug…

Bloons 2 Review

Everyone remember Bloons? No, not the popular tower defense game, the other one. You know, the monkey who uses darts to pop a series of balloons for no discernible reason? Well, it's been over two years and that game has finally gotten a sequel. For those of you who have been waiting for more primate popping pandemonium, let us tell you what the sequel has in store. Players of the original should feel quite at home, and new players should realize that the first title had such shortcom…
