Review Sirvo LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Puzzlejuice Review

If you haven't reached a comfortable state of equilibrium with common arcade titles that feature gameplay elements such as color-matching, word-finding or block tessellating, then I can only assume you're a very VERY recent convert to the world of gaming. Don't worry, you'll join the fold soon enough and if you're interested in getting there even faster you can play Puzzlejuice because it combines all three. The best part is it caters to those with only a few seconds spare; those who…

Hero Academy Review

Review Robot Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Hero Academy Review

If you've spent any time gaming on the PC or even major consoles it's hard not to have come across Orcs Must Die, Robot Entertainment's third-person take on tower defense gameplay. Now iOS gamers can experience a taste of the developer's whimsical sense of fun thanks to their free-to-download tactical title, Hero Academy. Part card game, part turn-based strategy, players pit themselves against opponents from around the world in asynchronous matches. As such you can take part in multip…

Lunar Racer Review

Review Noodlecake Studios Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
Lunar Racer Review

When Noodlecake Studios first told us that their next project was like a mash-up between Tiny Wings and Mario Kart, I have to say I was equally worried and excited about it. Excited because it's a genius little concept and worried because there's a fine line that must be tread by all 'Kart' games to remain fun no matter where you end up at the finish line. While Lunar Racer manages to pull off the basic concept with ease, a combination of control and content woes brings the game short…

MEGA MAN X Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 8 months ago
MEGA MAN X Review

It seems that Capcom isn't able to catch a break when it comes to the reviewers assigned to their Mega Man franchise titles on the App Store - while Mega Man 2 is Dave's favorite from the series (at least on its original console), Mega Man X was (and still is) my personal favorite. With this in mind the iOS release of the title was more than welcome and still a blast to play through, but like so many of the developers releases on the App Store it suffers for its disregard of the platfo…

Time Ducks Review

Review Tough Guy Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Time Ducks Review

There are two ways to approach a game like Time Ducks by Tough Guy Studios. One is to simply say "it's Frogger, combined with Flight Control after a heavy session of drinking in the Hot Tub Time Machine" and just leave it at that... I'll even pat you on the bottom as you scamper away to your room to enjoy it. The other is to put on a legitimate reviewers hat and wait for the inevitable gaming coma that comes when you finish a round, not quite knowing what happened, but knowing you did…

Zen Pinball Review

Review ZEN Studios Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 9 months ago
Zen Pinball Review

I'm seriously having flashbacks here - as a child of the 80s and a self-admitted video game nerd, the local video arcades were a veritable haven for me. While pinball games were never my forte, there was a distinct magical allure that came from the newer generation of fancy and complex titles that tried to capture the essence of a franchise, typified by the introduction of Midway's classic Addams Family pinball table. These memories are distinct and powerful, which is why I was surpris…

Chicken Coup Remix Review

Review Puppy Punch Productions By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 10 months ago
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…

Whale Trail Review

Review ustwo™ By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 11 months 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…

Tiny Heroes Review

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…

Fruit Roll Review

Fruit Roll Review

One thing about playing a lot of games is that you're always looking for new experiences. For instance, we here at AppSpy have never controlled a double jumping, shape shifting piece of fruit as it constantly rolls down a hill, collecting stars and obliterating random wildlife. Did the experience live up to the novelty of that previous sentence? Let's find out. Fruit Roll is a game of highscores. As you roll along you boost your score collecting stars and rolling into enemies. There i…

Cave Mice Review

Review Appicus By Dave Flodine, 3 years ago
Cave Mice Review

For those of you who have played the NES game Battletoads, remember level 2, when you were endlessly descending down that tunnel, trying your hardest to avoid objects, destroy enemies, and not  bell whack your friend? Well Cave Mice is a little like that, minus the punching enemies and turning into bells. OK, so it's nothing like that, but the core idea is the same. As a family of mice who have had their cheese pile fall deep into the Earth, it's up to Theseus Tilsit to lower hims…

Temple Run Review

Review Imangi Studios, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 1 month ago
Temple Run Review

Imangi Studios isn't the kind of company to mess around with a name, what with games and apps like Word Squares, PhotoMarkr, Max Adventure and Harbor Master being almost exactly what you'd think them to be. So when they named this game Temple Run, it was almost guaranteed to be about some sort of Hollywood archeologist running away from natives. Like several endless runners of-late, Temple Run takes a shot at mastering the 3D perspective, opting in this case to have players run in to…

The Greedy Sponge Review

Review Ivica Aracic By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
The Greedy Sponge Review

Much like any sane and reasonable human being, I fear the creatures of the ocean. This is perhaps in part due to my overwhelming dread of some Cthulu-esque monstrosity being enraged by our incursion on their gigantic domain, but also because sea-creatures are largely creepy. The Greedy Sponge by Ivica Aracic and Sponge Forge feeds directly in this well of dread by forcing you to help an endlessly hungry sponge to consume a host of replicating organisms. If you haven't guessed it, the…

THE KING OF FIGHTERS-i- Review

Review SNK PLAYMORE By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
THE KING OF FIGHTERS-i- Review

As much as I love fighting games, there’s one series above all others that has consistently and continually remained out of my reach - The King of Fighters (KOF) series. It’s a shameful burden to bear, but while I watch people enjoy the heck out of this classic fighter I’m often reduced to relying on my button-mashing-fu. As such I’m glad I’ve got my hands on The King of Fighters-i by SNK Playmore - not because I can button mash, but because I’m gett…

Ionocraft Racing Review

Review PAN Vision AB By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 2 months ago
Ionocraft Racing Review

What has no wheels, is powered by steam and goes really really fast? Actually I'm probably certain there's a legitimate answer to this, but the answer I'm looking for is an Ionocraft. In this time-trial racer from PAN Vision you'll race against the clock (and yourself) in an attempt to outfit and customize your vehicle to your liking. One shouldn't underestimate the importance of customization either as the placement of things like thrusters, stabilizers and steering jets can greatly…
