Fling Theory Review

Review Coding Jar Studios By Dave Flodine, 6 years, 2 months ago
Fling Theory Review

In Fling Theory, you follow a particle through a journey of attraction, repulsion, destruction, and everything in-between. It's a physics flinger in the truest sense of the word. Each stage involves guiding your partcle through series of mazes and pipes, collecting the three stars and plenty of coins along the way. By changing the charge of your particle (yellow for positive, red for negative) you alter the way charged particles in the environment affect your path through the maze. By…

PrismaPix Review

Review Kris Pixton By Andrew Nesvadba, 7 years, 7 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…

Typing Maniac Review

Review MetroGames By Andrew Nesvadba, 8 years, 9 months ago
Typing Maniac Review

If you haven't had a crack at Typing Maniac on Facebook, I heartily recommend giving it a go - while you may not be the best hardcore gamer around, you might just be able to out-type your friends to a first place victory. However Typing Maniac for iOS devices by MetroGames is a slightly different thing altogether - where the browser version makes great use of keyboard skills, translating the game to depend on your texting skills isn't quite as smooth. This is mostly thanks to the vert…

Numb3rs™ - The Game Review

Review EA Chillingo By Andrew Nesvadba, 9 years, 1 month ago
Numb3rs™ - The Game Review

Is it just me or are TV shows scrambling to make games now? CBS Interactive along with Chillingo have released 'Numb3rs™ - The Game' and in a refreshing turn for the better this who-dun-it show isn't being paired with an adventure game. Nope, instead of searching for hidden objects and pressing witnesses you'll take part in the fantasy mathematics of Numb3rs by solving numerical puzzles. Charlie has developed yet another algorithm to locate the suspect in question, but as a budd…

Green Jump Review

Review Scanovate LTD By Andrew Nesvadba, 9 years, 5 months ago
Green Jump Review

Much like the boldness displayed by the creators of Veggie Samurai, Baboonix have developed a rather blatant Doodle Jump clone in Green Jump - the first official game for Greenpeace on the App Store. But it's not entirely without merit as Green Jump keeps things simple and most importantly, fun. Players need only to tilt their device to help slide their green crusader around as he jumps off clouds to escape the rising smog. As you climb in to the stratosphere you can collect letters t…

Simon Graham and the Extraordinary Timepiece, Book I Review

Review The App House By Andrew Nesvadba, 9 years, 7 months ago
Simon Graham and the Extraordinary Timepiece, Book I Review

'Simon Graham and the Extraordinary Timepiece, Book I' (deep breath) by The App House is an interesting experiment in trying to recapture what made the Professor Layton series on Nintendo's handhelds so popular. With its turn of the century 'period' style and dozens of interesting puzzles the game certainly steps in the right direction, but will players dive in to the world of Simon Graham long enough to wait for 'Book II'? Most of the game's puzzles are touch-driven, allowing players…

Chromixa Review

Review Wet Nose Design Ltd By Dave Flodine, 9 years, 8 months ago
Chromixa Review

Chromixa began life as an art installation based on creator Simon Watson's fascination with light. A handful of development time later and we have a light based puzzle game for the iphone. The goal is to create shapes of a solid colour out of overlaying smaller pieces of different colours, much like a jigsaw. Control is all touch and drag. Upon touching a piece, it can be dragged anywhere on screen or the large wheel can be used to rotate it. If you ever get confused about which colou…

Brain Challenge 2: Think Again! Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 10 years, 2 months ago
Brain Challenge 2: Think Again! Review

After a quirky little game on the Nintendo DS challenged people to train their brains, a slew of games from developers tried to cash in on this "mini-game" craze. Brain Challenge 2: Think Again! (BC2) by Gameloft is yet another in the brain training genre, but thankfully it's also probably one of the best currently available. The mini-games are controlled by touching to confirm your selection from a range of possible answers. The buttons can be fairly small on some of the games, so la…

Numbers to 1 - Brain Puzzle Review

Numbers to 1 - Brain Puzzle Review

Numbers to 1 is a puzzle logic game for the iPhone where players must move different tiles around until they all equal one. Also, the bottom right hand corner square must always be empty. Your goal is to progress through each puzzle and dimension to complete them all. To solve the puzzles, you will have to move number across other tiles into a gap by tapping them. As they cross the gap it will subtract the number it jumps over. For example if a three block jumps over a two block, it w…

Mind Games 2 Review

Review Player X By Andrew Nesvadba, 10 years, 5 months ago
Mind Games 2 Review

The brain training genre of games have often felt like a hodge-podge collection of mini games that combine puzzles and arcade elements, scoring you for the sake of progress. In other words, they were less about training and more about the challenge. Mind Games 2 may be a fairly simple offering compared to other brain training games, but this one feels like the real deal; your brain will feel the burn. Most games use a simple touch to select answers from the plethora of game modes, tho…

Textropolis Review

Textropolis is a word based game where the player must travel to various cities, finding as many four letter or more words they can using letters in the city name (Eg. Amsterdam– star, master etc).
