SpinTrip Review

Review ablemagic By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years ago
SpinTrip Review

Most platformers are content with assigning players a handful of 'powers', be it through tokens they earn that give them temporary special abilities or by using button combinations to add a level of skill to the gameplay. SpinTrip takes a slightly different approach, breaking down the gameplay in to moving left/right and jumping while only being able to activate one power at a time; the catch is, you need to 'find' the power in question first. It's an intriguing idea and where most ga…

Chicken Coup Remix Review

Chicken Coup Remix Review

Feeling cooped up? Outfoxed? Tired of reviews full of stupid puns pertaining to the game at hand? Well we can't help you out with that last one but Chicken coop Remix by Punch Puppy Studios may just entertain you enough to chase away all the frustration. Then again, it might exacerbate it. There are two chicken coops and two different colored chickens, white and yellow. The white chickens need to be herded into the white coop, and the yellow chickens into their coop. It's self explana…

Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Modern Combat 3: Fallen Nation Review

If I could digress for a moment before stepping in to this review, there are times at which I wonder if parroting what already exists on larger consoles is really the way forward for iOS. While I agree that in many cases we'd otherwise not see games like this on an iDevice, at times it's hard not to feel like being a hyena tearing at the shreds of a carcass. In this way a game can feel disappointing even despite being, relatively speaking, amazing for the platform it's on. With that s…

Galactic Phantasy Review

Galactic Phantasy Review

When you first look at a game like Galaxy Pirate Adventure by Sunfish Studio Limited, it's hard not to be misled and think you're in for a Privateer-like experience set in a pirate-infested universe. The first hint is in the game's description as it clearly calls itself a 'full 3D RPG', which is literally exactly what it is. You play as the Prince of Pirates, however you've been cast out in to the 'waters' by your father (the 'King' of Pirates if you're wondering) to adventure and gro…

Whale Trail Review

Review ustwo™ By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Whale Trail Review

While I'd love to think I'm not the bitter old-soul that my friends sometimes consider me to be, I can't help but feel a bit sympathetic as I load up a game like Whale Trail by ustwo and grin like the Cheshire Cat for what seems like hours and think 'Oh... this is what smiling feels like?'. OK, OK, I'm not THAT grumpy, but the point remains that there's something positive to be said for a game that had me babbling like an incoherently excited 3 year old within minutes of having loaded…

FLIP RIDERS Review

Review POWapp By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
FLIP RIDERS Review

Editor Note (Nov 9, 2011): For some, Flip Riders was everything they wanted in a time-trial, hardcore moto-x style stunt game, but for us at AppSpy it presented a lot of frustrations that managed to pile upon themselves, resulting in a less than stellar first outing. However, in what is certainly a praiseworthy effort of retooling, Agimat has updated their game to not only separate the weaklings from the heroes (thanks to a new difficulty selection), the levels themselves have al…

Siegecraft Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Siegecraft Review

For the sake of posterity and for those who arrive at this review well after it goes online, Siegecraft by Blowfish Studios and Crescent Moon Games arrived during an eventful week resulting in it almost floundering. This isn't because it was ignored, but rather because it was released just before iOS 5 and the iPhone 4S, both of which being the optimal requirements for playing this game. Performance patches have helped to smooth things out for fourth gen iDevices, but it's clear this…

HighFlyer DeathDefyer (i4) Review

Review Game Mechanic Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
HighFlyer DeathDefyer (i4) Review

Barring those who have a dreaded fear of heights I'm sure a lot of people dream of being able to fly. The idea of being able to take off and own the sky can be so overwhelming that people jump off high points just to experience the sensation of freedom it brings, no matter how brief. HighFlyer DeathDefyer by Game Mechanic Studios is all about an explorer living in a world thrown high in to the sky; where free-falling means you can make a living claiming remnants of Earth's past. After…

Do Do EGG! Review

Review PONOS By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 2 months ago
Do Do EGG! Review

Do Do Egg is a game of increments. First you learn how the game works, then you learn how to extend combos, then you learn how to chain together half the board, then you win. This is a take on the very popular match-3 genre but instead of swapping around gems in groups of three or more, you're drawing lines between two eggs of the same color that have two other eggs in the middle. As long as this holds true, you can continue your line until you've clocked in a mammoth combo, and you ne…

Tiny Heroes Review

Review Simutronics Corp By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 2 months ago
Tiny Heroes Review

Tower defense games are a dime a dozen these days. With that being the case it's often hard to be excited about yet another addition to the genre. Tiny Heroes is not the first TD game to switch the dynamic around, putting you in the shoes of the villains and having you defeat incoming heroes, but it presents itself with enough solid gameplay and charm to have a fighting chance. Each level begins with a new dungeon resting between the waves of heroes and your treasure room. Before the…

AeroDrift Review

Review Alan Marghitola By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
AeroDrift Review

Time-trial racers can range from the most mundane or vehicular simulators to the most insane of concepts such as flipping gravity. jAggy Race by SevenOnly mashes the two ends of the spectrum, ending up with something that feels more like an arcade racer injected with some seriously whacky psychotropics and despite the handful of levels available you're unlikely to master this game any time soon. This is, simply put, because the game is not above changing the rules mid-race, often seve…

GoatUp Review

Review Llamasoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
GoatUp Review

There exist in this world a whole host of games that you either 'get' or you 'don't. Often they border on artistic works, poking fun at or otherwise playing around with the conventions of gaming for its own agenda, but ultimately some sort of personal understanding or connection is needed to forgive the quirks these sorts of games create. In the grand scheme of Llamasoft's past work, GoatUp is perhaps the least challenging title to approach and that's saying a lot when you're playing…

Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack! Review

Review Devolver Digital By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack! Review

You have to admire a developer that can create a character so fearsome that it only takes a distant whisper of its tireless scream to send a shudder down your spine. Which, according to Croteam themselves, is kinda weird considering the Beheaded Kamikaze of Serious Sam fame has no head to scream with. Thankfully in the iOS outing of Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack! by Devolver Digital you get to control a Kamikaze instead of being its intended victim, just don't get too excited because yo…

Race illegal: High Speed 3D Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Race illegal: High Speed 3D Review

At times I wonder if the Arcade Racer has lost some of its charm, more specifically I wonder if the need to simplify the controls for iOS users has resulted in a genre that has managed to mute an already toned-down sport too far. Race illegal: High Speed 3D by Apetrus and Chillingo tries every trick in the book to wow the player in to continuing to play, but the end result is something that lacks the energy it tries to portray. Sparks, blurs, revving engines, flames and whining turbos…

Frogger Decades Review

Frogger Decades Review

Updates of a classic arcade game can be a tricky balancing act. You're trying to entice fans of the original so the gameplay needs to be very similar, yet to bring in new fans, it has to be different enough to warrant a look. Frogger Decades comes very close to this balance but ultimately falls a bit short. The game is based around the jumping mechanic which is handled by swiping on the right side of the screen. Want to jump in a certain direction, just swipe there and Frogger will ho…
