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…

Men in Black 3 Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
Men in Black 3 Review

Let it not be said that all 'freemium' titles are bad - sure they have their huge flaws, but time enjoyed is time well spent. With that said, time wasted is time not enjoyed and definitely not well spent and this is where the genre comes in to contention: If you lack the motivation, then what are you playing for? Men in Black 3 slides uncomfortably in to this second problematic kind of thinking, albeit  presenting all the visual polish and flair Gameloft can muster, but it's not e…

Penny Time Review

Penny Time Review

Licensed games, whether they be for a movie, TV show, book, or a brand always make gamers raise their eyebrows with caution. It's not the idea of marketing tie-ins, but more that in about ninety five percent of cases, these games are absolutely terrible. Isn't it funny then that when a brand spends the time and effort to make a truly engaging game, the idea of the brand tie-in seems almost quaint? That's exactly what we have here with Penny Skateboards, and their game Penny Time. Anyo…

FastBall 3 Review

Review Klik! Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 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…

N.O.V.A. 3 - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
N.O.V.A. 3 - Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance Review

N.O.V.A. 3 (NOVA3) is not above bombast and indeed it kicks things off in an explosive and gorgeous way. What follows is most certainly Gameloft's best entry in the science-fiction FPS series, but an unrelenting series of sequences that seem incomplete or untested drag the game back from the brink of excellence. The setting is a familiar one - Earth (or what remains of it) is under attack and you as the disgruntled, gravel-voiced hero are called back (despite saying you were done help…

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 Review

Review Warner Bros. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 Review

It may have taken some time, but the LEGO Harry Potter series finally comes to a close on the iOS platform with the release of Years 5-7. The first release managed to do a neat job of packaging the hand-held version for a touch interface, but it seems to struggle at times with the somewhat more complex sequel, bringing things down a notch. Most notably, Years 5-7 covers the rather action-packed period of the Harry Potter novels, which means plenty of wave-wanding and spell-slinging. M…

Gunman Clive Review

Review Bertil Horberg By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 12 months ago
Gunman Clive Review

When one thinks of run and gun platforming set in the wild west, one might think of the fantastic arcade title Sunset Riders. Now western games are rare in themselves but there is a market for them, and with western platformers being ever rarer, it's nice to see a game like Gunman Clive emerge. The girl has been captured by the villain and it's up to Clive to rescue her while enacting some old western justice on all who stand in his way, be they outlaw, predator or waterfowl. One of t…

Coign of Vantage Review

Review bobblebrook By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 12 months ago
Coign of Vantage Review

For those of you not in the know, a voxel is essentially a pixel in the third dimension, so instead of images made up of single colored squares, you know have images made up of single colored cubes. Coign of Vantage has strewn these voxels around and through the power or rotation, it's your job as the player to find the correct vantage point and put the image back together. There are two game modes; normal, and 'ten on time'. In normal mode you start with forty five seconds on the clo…

Shark Dash Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 12 months ago
Shark Dash Review

After first learning about Shark Dash, one thought pinged around my mind, 'I wonder who developed this game for Chillingo/Clickgamer'... after a double-take I realized I was dealing with a Gameloft title and my world promptly fell on its head. All of this may sound melodramatic, but gamers have long come to terms with the App Store's cliches, though if Shark Dash proves anything it's that Gameloft has the chops to produce fresh and addictive games. You should know the basic formula by…

DevilDark: The Fallen Kingdom Review

DevilDark: The Fallen Kingdom Review

Despite their brutishly simple style, Action-RPGs remain steadfastly appealing; being able to dispatch hordes of enemies and then sifting through the chunky remains for useful items seems to push all the right kind of buttons for many gamers. DevilDark: The Fallen Kingdom by Triniti Interactive attempts to cash in on this simplicity, but it pulls its punch a little too much, making for a less than compelling title. While there are no specific classes, players can find themselves beati…

Rinth Island Review

Rinth Island Review

When discussing a puzzle game, there's something we often forget to mention - almost a caveat of sorts. While some people happily avoid the genre entirely, those that do enjoy the odd brain-twister can be fickle and no matter the praise a game receives, it will forever remain unappealing to them. Rinth Island by Buzz Monkey and Chillingo is not immune from such fickleness, but while it's possible to find some aspects of the game unappealing, it provides such a huge amount of varied con…

Fibble Review

Fibble Review

Crytek, better known for developing 3D game engines that push computers to their limits, have finally dipped their toes in to the casual gaming scene with Fibble. I say casual because it has all the hallmarks of a relaxing puzzle title, from it's excessively 'cute' presentation; simple drag and tap control scheme; and relatively limited amount of content... however it's anything but a simple game. You play as Fibble - a rubbery, bouncy alien attempting to find his crew and repair his…

Fireball SE Review

Fireball SE Review

Back when everyone and their best friend were playing Geometry Wars, I found the 'Pacifism' mode of Retro Evolved 2 to be my absolute favorite. All of the over-the-top twitch-based shooting was shelved to make way for skillful piloting as you balanced along the fine line of risk vs. reward. Fireball SE by Luke Schneider takes a crack at the same formula, albeit with some fresh twists that will have you risking more than you can handle. Players can choose between either a fixed or floa…

Madcoaster Review

Madcoaster Review

One of the first games AppSpy ever reviewed was 3D Rollercoaster Rush, and to be honest, upon opening up Mad Coaster, there was some expectations that it would be similar (as it had some fun albeit not long-lasting gameplay). Mad Coaster is not even close however, taking the concept of riding a rollercoaster and plopping it in the endless runner genre, complete with coin collecting, and objectives to complete. All you need to know to play this is that you tap the screen to jump over c…

MASS EFFECT™ INFILTRATOR Review

Review Electronic Arts By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month ago
MASS EFFECT™ INFILTRATOR Review

If there's one thing that's likely to get gamers riled up, it's a tie-in product. When you have a successful franchise, you need only slap a name on to a product with a marked-up price and wallow in the profits. Given that the third title in the Mass Effect series has just hit it's no surprise to see EA and Bioware giving the green-light to an iOS title, but IronMonkey Studios have gone above and beyond to make Mass Effect Infiltrator a game worthy of play all on its own. Somewhere al…
