Battle otherworldly beasts in atmospheric action-platformer Feist

Battle otherworldly beasts in atmospheric action-platformer Feist

Feist probably might remind you of Limbo at a glance, with its shadowed aesthetic and woodland environments, but that's where the similarities end. Rather than puzzles, Feist is all about intense brawls with relentless creatures. You're a small fuzzy being, captured by a larger species but able to escape into the hostile wilderness. At every turn, new threats lurk - vicious stinging insects, towering mole-like beasts, swarming spiders - and the only things between you and death are your agility and quick reflexes. As you leap around charging monsters, branches and pine cones become your desperately improvised weapons, giving you just enough breathing room to outmanuever and decide your ne…

Sling Ming is a swinging sci-fi story-driven puzzler headed to iOS and Android

Exploring an alien planet looks to be a charmingly fun affair in the upcoming Sling Ming, an "on-rails" adventure following a brave traveler through the mysterious environments of another world by way of oxygen pipelines. Each of the game's fifty-plus stage is a gauntlet of enemies, hazards, and puzzle elements navigated by dragging nodes to alter your path, as your titular hero swings along the pipes; timing your movement between nodes with the arc of her swing is as important as where you place nodes, letting you collect coins or dodge projectiles with your back-and-forth motions. As the narrative moves from the sunny exteriors to the deadly caverns and alien ruins within, Sling Ming in…

Quirky javelin-flinging action game Lichtspeer is now available on the App Store

A single javelin may not seem like enough to hold back an army of towering giants, sharply-dressed zombies, and glasses-wearing walruses, but that javelin probably isn’t the Lichtspeer. Armed with the powerful laser spear, this new iOS arcade-action game pits you against waves of weird foes and much more. Across this odd sci-fi fantasy landscape and over 60 stages, you fight at the behest of the Licht gods, talking aim with your titular weapon against varied encroaching monsters. With familiar slingshot controls, your graceful throws pierce eyes and heads and other weak points, requiring precision and timing to defeat deadlier enemies and looming bosses. A single enemy reaching you…

Hands-on with Kritika: Chaos Unleashed, the action RPG starring the angriest man ever

We've covered Kritika: Chaos Unleashed quite closely here at AppSpy, ensuring you fine folks got word of the pre-registration event for exclusive items, and news that the game is available right now for iOS and Android devices. The coverage continues today with our hands-on video, and let me tell you, I have not been disappointed with what I've played thus far. Combat in Kritika: Chaos Unleashed is fast and plentiful, occurring in confined arenas with plenty of enemies ready to be cut down. Boss battles with larger creatures require a little more tactical thinking as you work out their attack patterns. When you're not knocking baddies for six, you're upgrading your weaponry and armour to b…
