Tiny Wings HD Review

Review Andreas Illiger By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 1 month 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…

Pinball Maniacs: Cartoon Pinball Adventure Review

Review Massive Finger By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
Pinball Maniacs: Cartoon Pinball Adventure Review

Pinball Maniacs is a pinball game where getting a high score really isn't that important. Let that sink in for a minute. Yes there still is a high score recorded when play has ended, but you're not playing for points. You're playing for coins and rubies. You expect some of the design to shift when a game is freemium, but to shift pinball away from high scores? Well it's a bold move if nothing else. Let's explore further. You start with one table, the other being unlocked by rubies, wi…

Project 83113 Review

Review NCSOFT By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Project 83113 Review

While we most often associate the 'bullet-hell' moniker with shoot'em-ups, platformers have had more than their share of crazy screen-exploding weapons being discharged at the player. When a main character has four arms and nearly infinite ammunition, you can bet things are about to get crazy and Project 83113 by Fabrication Games and NCsoft manages to deliver. You play as 'Belle', the great hope of the 'organics' in their fight against the 'machines'. Simply put, your job is to blow…

Review KLICKTOCK By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Little Things® Forever Review

Some may remember KLICKTOCK for their recent and delightfully addictive time-waster 'ZONR', but those who own an iPad may remember them nest for something else entirely, 'Little Things'. Now after almost two years the sequel has finally arrived and adds polishes an already fun concept, albeit without adding to the game's basic formula. 'Blasphemy!' I hear you cry, but spare a thought for the iPhone gamer who has only been able to watch while iPad owners have enjoyed one of the best ey…

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…

Burger Cat Review

Review Ravenous Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
Burger Cat Review

Releasing any new title after the insanely successful League of Evil games was always going to be a difficult thing for Ravenous Games to pull off. Some would find their solution in refining what has come before, but in an act of almost complete defiance of the platforming titles that have come before, Burger Cat demands more from your brain than your reactions. At its core, the game feels much like a traditional puzzle-platformer, removing the player's direct control of Burger Cat an…

PrismaPix Review

Review Kris Pixton By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 4 months ago
PrismaPix Review

There's a reason why we at AppSpy recently reviewed Kris Pixton's latest release in the Pathpix series - it was to act as a refresher or reminder of the developer's particular puzzling style. Ultimately it acts as a perfect introduction to an entirely new (relatively speaking) puzzling experience in the form of PrismaPix, and while it may feature the same core goals of PathPix, the gameplay itself is fresh and utterly engrossing. Mixing elements of games such as Minesweeper, Fill-a-Pi…

Review Interwave Studios B.V. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
rComplex Review

The App Store isn't hurting for variety in its gameplay. While some gamers bemoan the inevitable slew of titles that ride the coat-tails of a successful franchise, the upshot is a refinement of the gameplay in to something resembling a genre. As such there are often minimum expectations for such games, especially when so many have tried and failed already, making large missteps hard to forgive. rComplex by Interwave Studios has sadly fallen in to this situation and while its unbelieva…

Final Freeway 2R Review

Review NEWTYPE K.K. By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Final Freeway 2R Review

Weren't racing games at the arcades awesome back in the day? They usually had this giant car cabinet that you sat in. There was a steering wheel, and pedals. Sometimes even a gearbox! Sure the physics and the graphics have gotten a lot better over the years, and you can buy these elaborate peripherals for home use, but the experience is more than a little diluted. Still, we appreciate a throwback to simpler times and that's exactly what Final Freeway 2R offers. Let's get the compariso…

Prince of Persia® Classic Review

Review Ubisoft By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Prince of Persia® Classic Review

The original Prince of Persia by Jordan Mechner was a gaming classic, with its fluid animation, exotic setting and adventurous gameplay. The game was remade for the XBLA a few years ago, updating the graphics, adding more animations, and new modes along with achievements. That version was amazing and now has been ported to the iPhone. Can the touch screen deliver as wonderful an experience as a controller however? The answer sadly is no. Part of what made the original and the remake g…

Review Secret Base Pte Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 5 months ago
Tobe & Friends Hookshot Escape Review

The name 'Tobe & Friends Hookshot Escape' may ring some bells for those of you who frequent the XBLA or Steam platforms looking for new and interesting Indie titles. For a while now, Secret Base, the developers behind the Tobe series have been placing the titular Tobe in to a series of varied platforming titles, ranging from a basic explore and conquer to an endless runner. Their latest title for the iOS adapts a game already available on their website and mixes things up by adding…

My Army Review

My Army Review

We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender etcetera, etcetera. When Winston Churchill gave that rousing speech to the House of Commons in 1940, he would probably have no clue that his words would be used to introduce the review for a fun little iPhone game titled My Army. Does it have any relevance outside the game starting on an Omaha-esque beachhead? Not s…

Retro Racing Review

Review Mr Qwak Limited By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Retro Racing Review

It's not often that a game's title says just about everything you could hope to want to convey about a game before even loading it up. Aside from the basic top-down racing gameplay that should be familiar to just about every gamer, Amiga owners might recognize the influences from Nitro by Psygnosis - this is no mistake as the developer behind that title, Jamie Woodhouse, is also the grand designer for Retro Racing. Players are given nothing more than the ability to veer left and right…

Raid Leader Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 6 months ago
Raid Leader Review

I'm not ashamed to admit that I have dedicated a large portion of my life to World of Warcraft by Blizzard - it's not in my life right now (though I expect I'll enjoy their upcoming expansion briefly), but at one time I was a raid leader for a high level guild. This isn't boasting, but rather a way of saying that when Raid Leader by Red Zebra and Crescent Moon Games dropped on the App Store, I had a lot of experience to draw on... and let me tell you, it helped a lot. You see, much li…

Kaptain Brawe: A Brawe New World (Full) Review

Review G5 Entertainment By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 7 months ago
Kaptain Brawe: A Brawe New World (Full) Review

Kaptain Brawe is a cop. A space cop! They do things differently in space, like spell captain with a K. Imagine taking control of Zap Brannigan, only instead of being a complete incompetent with a side kick that despises you, you have the added bonus of having some modicum of intelligence, but that's only because of the player actually doing the legwork in solving the puzzles. As adventure games go, this is what we would call a throwback to the adventures of the early 1990s. Well OK, i…
