Bounty Hunt is a free-to-play gunslinging duel in the wild west

Bounty Hunt is a free-to-play gunslinging duel in the wild west

Games set in the wild west are almost always a bit naff, with a few exceptions, most notably Sunset Riders and Red Dead Redemption. I'm yet to play Bounty Hunt, but the trailer looks really promising. It's a duelling game with a "flick fire" mechanic, Wi-Fi multiplayer, some cool weather effects, character customisation, and the ability to get new weapons as well as upgrading the ones you already have. Here's that trailer I mentioned earlier. Bounty Hunt is out now on iOS and Android, and it's free-to-play. [App Store link][Google Play link]…

Hands-on with Javelin Masters 2, in which I throw a mighty 94.52 metres

In this video I get a score that's almost good enough to break into the top 100 of my country. That's pretty good I reckon, certainly far better than any real life attempts at getting into athletics I've tried. Javelin Masters 2 is out now, it's free, it's a bit moreish, and I'm loving it at the moment. So AppSpy community, go grab it and see if you can beat my score.…

Twisty Hollow is full of spinning wheels, kooky characters, and bacon

Arkadium's latest puzzle game is Twisty Hollow, and I'm loving the papercraft look to it. In addition to the maple syrup sweet visual style, there's also 50 levels of spinning a wheel to solve puzzles, thereby satisfying the demands of the local populace and a tyrannical mayor. These demands include gathering up bacon. Twisty Hollow is out on October 30th as a paid game for iOS and Android. Here's the announcement trailer.…


Drift'n'Drive trailer reveals 4 person local multiplayer, 60fps play, and thumping soundtrack, has me shaking with anticipation

Drift'n'Drive trailer reveals 4 person local multiplayer, 60fps play, and thumping soundtrack, has me shaking with anticipation

I love nothing more than a good arcade racing game, and it looks like Drift'n'Drive is shaping up to be a very good arcade racing game. It's a top-down racer where you fight through a pack of cars, avoid obstacles on the track, and use speed boosts to win championships. Gameplay mods and randomly generated tracks should keep things fresh, there are upgrades to be made to vehicles, there's single screen multiplayer for up to 4 people, it's a silky smooth 60 frames per second, and EDM artist Tommy Baynen (who's been featured on Armin van Buuren's ASOT, as well as contributing music to AG Drive) provides the soundtrack. I'm hyped, here's the trailer.…

Hands-on with Puzzle to the Center of the Earth, where Spelunky and Bejeweled combine

What do you get when you cross a rogue-like with a match-3? You get Puzzle to the Center of the Earth, that's what. Playing like a combination of Candy Crush Saga, SteamWorld Dig, and Mr. Driller, it's a heady mix of spelunking and puzzle matching. Here's my preview of the game, let me know what you make of it in the comments.…

Hands-on with Plunder Pirates: Halloween Update, the spooky update for the premier piratical strategy management game

I've been playing Plunder Pirates since July, and even did the review for Pocket Gamer. Though I don't think I'd ever get bored at looking at crystal clear blue oceans, swaying palm trees, and pirate antics, there's a scary new update for Halloween. Here's a look at some of what's new (as well as a very thinly disguised attempt to show off how cool my island is).…

Hands-on with Walking War Robots, where World of Tanks meets MechWarrior

If that headline made you do a double-take, then prepare thyself: Walking War Robots is currently the closest thing to a modern MechWarrior action game for your mobile. The engine powering the game is impressive, even if some of the UI elements are a bit old hat, and the feeling of being part of a squad taking on another team is palpable. This one could break big, so educate yourself now.…


Hands-on with Base Busters, the explosive reverse tower defence game

Hands-on with Base Busters, the explosive reverse tower defence game

Actually, now that I think about it, to call just call Base Busters a “reverse tower defence game” is a slight disservice, as there are actually two modes of play on offer. The first is reverse TD: taking on an enemy stronghold through wit, cunning, and powerful vehicles. The second is traditional TD: setting up a base that you feel will give you the best possible chance of withstanding an attack. It's a cool concept, and I talk more about it in our Base Busters hands-on, so have a watch and see for yourself.…

Hands-on with Sleep Attack TD, the tower defence game with a twist

The big difference between Sleep Attack TD and other tower defence games is that you can rotate the battlefield to work in your favour, and this one change makes for a refreshing gameplay experience in a genre that's now a little old in the tooth. It's cute too, with a frankly adorable cartoon look. Check it out in my sneak peek below.…

Way back in May we went hands-on with Retry, and found an astonishingly challenging arcade game with a very appealing retro aesthetic, great music, and tight controls. The global release of Retry has just landed on iOS and Android, you can try its own brand of teeth-gnashingly tough flight action for free right now. Want it? Get it using the links below.
