Monster Hunter Freedom Friday fan video makes us do a little weepy

Monster Hunter Freedom Friday fan video makes us do a little weepy

Our dear Twitch stream regular Curtneedsaride, also known as Curtis Shideler, joined us for our regular Monster Hunter Freedom Unite last Friday and popped the above video in the chat room towards the end of our session. Collecting moments and sound bites from our glorious past broadcasts, it brought tears to the eyes of everyone in the AppSpy office. Very much appreciated Curt - should you ever need that ride we'll be happy to pick you up on the AppSpy bus (er... if it's ever in your neck of the woods). Remember to join us over on Twitch every Friday at 5pm BST / 9am PDT for Monster Hunter Freedom Friday! *mouth horn noises*  …


We're streaming Modern Combat 5: Blackout live on Twitch (5pm UK | 9am Pacific | 12 noon Eastern)

We're streaming Modern Combat 5: Blackout live on Twitch (5pm UK | 9am Pacific | 12 noon Eastern)

Only a couple of days left till Modern Combat 5: Blackout hits the App Store! As such, we're continuing Modern Combat week on our Twitch channel today, streaming an hour or more of Modern Combat 5: Blackout! In case you missed it, we had a Modern Combat retrospective yesterday. We found that as time has gone on, each iteration of the Modern Combat series has been tighter, more graphically oustanding, and even more explosive than the game before it. This bodes very well indeed for the latest entry in the series. The wonderful chaps and chapettes over at Gameloft have given us five fabulous (large size) Modern Combat 5 hoodies to give away to folks in the UK & Ireland. While one c…

We're live again today for Monster Hunter Freedom Friday! We've already had two sessions with Monster Hunter Freedom Unite for iOS, and we're far from done yet. Peter is not about today, so Harry and myself, Danny, will be joining James to bash some giant monsters in with pointy sticks and so forth. Can you tell I haven't played much? Yipe. If you're a newcomer to the series, or a veteran keen to see what this updated port has to offer, why not pop over to our Twitch stream a little later today to see what all the fuss is about?

Alphabeats is dropping rhythm-based word puzzles on the App Store now

Alphabeats is dropping rhythm-based word puzzles on the App Store now

Alphabeats is new music-inspired word-puzzler from Red Dragon, and is now available on iPhone and iPad. Alphabeats mixes Scrabble with Guitar Hero, asking you to create words from letters that appear in time to music. To create a word you must drag your collection of letters around the bottom of the screen, trying to collect the next letter in sequence while avoiding unwanted ones. With the audio playing a key role, it makes sense that developer Red Dragon has searched for the right music to suit the game. They seem to have had a clear vision in what they wanted, with the soundtrack supplied by a number of electro / chiptune artists including Big Giant Circles, ABXY, and Disasterpeace.…

UMAI! Review

Review Konstantin Kopka By Alex Beech, 3 months, 3 weeks ago
UMAI! Review

Like a good plate of sashimi, Umai! understands that less is more. This sushi-munching puzzler has you controlling a monster's tongue as it tries to eat its way through a conveyer belt of fishy treats. You begin by selecting one of five peckish creatures. Each has a unique pixel art design that sits somewhere on a spectrum between distressing and wonderful. Once you've chosen, you are instantly surrounded by twelve plates of sushi. You control your hungry beast's frog-like tongue wit…

Environmental physics puzzler Biosis is currently free on the App Store

Environmental physics puzzler Biosis is currently free on the App Store

Kostyantyn Salanda’s organic physics-puzzler Biosis is currently free on the App Store. Dragging a glowing blob through Biosis's puzzles quickly becomes a greater challenge than you would expect. Your tiny globular ward is pretty useless and relies on you to activate a variety of creatures and plants in each stage to push and pull it towards its goal. A slow starting pace gives you plenty of time to come to grips with the game’s world manipulation mechanics. Give it a little time, though, and you will find yourself firing your blob like a cannonball across the map in order to grapple it with a vine before swinging it safely into an exit. Exploring the lush hab…


Fluid SE Review

Review Radiangames By Alex Beech, 4 months ago
Fluid SE Review

Fluid SE has you constantly on the brink of anger. It sets you the simple goal of collecting a handful of glowing orbs from around its stylish dark arenas but adds time pressures to create a tantalising challenge. A responsive virtual stick ensures there are no surprises to Fluid's controls while you guide your creature around the levels. Where the complexity lies, however, is in the exactness of these controls, with the tiniest movement of your finger changing your avatar’s cou…

It's the middle of the week - you know what that means. No, not a general feeling of ennui and exhaustion! It means it's time for our weekly installment of Eye on the App Store over on our Twitch channel. As per usual, we'll be looking at the latest releases of the week. Some out at midnight tonight, some already out, and one that's returning to the App Store. A veritable mix on all accounts!

Just in case our video review of Battleheart Legacy last week wasn't enough to help you decide on picking up Battleheart Legacy, we'll be playing it as part of our regular Twitch broadcasting. Our Alex called the game an "attractive, fully-featured action-RPG with elegant controls, let down only by its slightly laborious combat system." If you have already bought it, fret not - we still need you to come along and point our James in the right direction! Give us your best hints, tips, and techniques so that we can storm through the session for our onlookers. The stream starts over on our Twitch channel at 5pm UK / 9am Pacific / 12 noon Eastern, but we'll have a short little natter with…

Genre Busters: Console Calamities - live on Twitch (5pm UK | 9am Pacific | 12 noon Eastern)

Over here at AppSpy we like to start the week just like all the other whippersnappers our age. Lists, and plenty of 'em! And boy, do we have a list show on our Twitch channel for you today. Genre Busters: Console Calamities will be exploring the grimey underbelly of misled publishers and developers who sold their soul for a quick buck - trashy titles with the names of beloved console properties emblazoned across them. Whether they're riddled with IAP jiggery-pokery, flawed controls, and / or just downright dreadful intrusive ads, we're going to name and shame them. We want to know which you've been most disgusted by. If you have played any of these games, there's a good chance you will ne…
