Realore, the developers behind the Roads to Rome series has released a trailer for its fortch coming steampunk train racer, Jet Trains. The game is all about leading your jet powered train along a series of treacherous tracks, jumping out of the way of obstacles and defeating your rivals.

Heroes of Order & Chaos delayed for Android

Heroes of Order & Chaos delayed for Android

We weren't that enamoured with Gameloft's MOBA Heroes of Order & Chaos. It had some nice ideas, but they got a bit lost under connectivity issues, which just isn't good enough for an online only game. However, Android gamers haven't even had a chance to find out about the stability issues, because despite Gameloft promising a simultaneous release, the game is still conspicuous in its absence from the Google Play Store. This is because Gameloft is tinkering with some server issues they've discovered with the Android version. So hopefully Android players should have a far more stable experience when it does release than iOS players have been suffering. So if you're waiting with baited b…

Take Minecraft into the real world

If you've ever slaved over an impressive creation in Minecraft, then you know how satisfying it is to stand back and marvel at your work. Well, imagine if everyone else in the world could do that as well. Thanks to Minecraft Reality, that's now a very real possible. The iOS app lets you upload your creations to the real world, leaving them there for others to find using their iPhone or iPad cameras. It's a clever application of AR technology, and as you can see in the video below, it lets you change the world in some pretty cool, innovative ways. Minecraft Reality is available from the App Store right now for $1.99, and if you still need to be swayed, check out the video of the app in act…

Galaxy On Fire 2 free on the App Store

It's fair to say that none of us are ever going to feel the real thrill of a dogfight in space, cursed as we are to be born in a time where spaceships spend most of their time on the ground and are rarely equipped with lasers. Luckily, right now the really rather brilliant Galaxy on Fire 2 is available from the App Store for free, meaning we can live out our space fighting dreams without the danger of being sucked out in an endless vacuum. We awarded the game 5/5 when we reviewed it, and updates since then have only added to our admiration of the space faring saga. It's full of action, intrigue, and there's enough content to keep you playing for hours. It's only the standard version of…

Bladeslinger slices onto the App Store

Kerosene Games and Lumo Arcade have unleashed their Unreal powered third person action adventure Bladeslinger onto the App Store.

You play as William Glaston, who's sword to save his home town of Hammer's Peak from the fell beasts that have overrun the once peaceful settlement.

Yingpei Games releases more details about Mercenary Ops

Yingpei Games, formerly known as Epic China, has release some more details about their upcoming Unreal powered FPS Mercenary Ops. The game, which looks to borrow more than a little from Resident Evil 4, offers 8 single player levels and 3 giant boss fights to blast your way through using innovative single finger controls. As you can see from the screenshots, Mercenary Ops is certainly looking impressive, and promises plenty of unholy beasts for you to blast into pieces. The game should be out sometime in the next month, meaning we might get to kill some zombies while enjoying Christmas dinner. If you want to know more, head over to the game's Facebook page for some more screenshots and…


Blade Lords brings F2P slashing to iOS

Blade Lords brings F2P slashing to iOS

Soul Calibur style free to play slasher Blade Lords has gone into beta in Canada and Singapore, which usually means that a worldwide iOS release isn't too far behind. The game, which is set in feudal Japan, is all about proving you're the greatest swordsman in the world, and taking on all comers with your trusty blade to prove it. The game uses the Unreal Engine to power its 3D on a 2D plane battles, and features a simple play style that should appeal to newcomers, while offering enough depth for fighting fans to really get their teeth into. Right now it looks like Blade Lords is iPad only, but that might change once it's given a full release. If your interest has been piqued, check out…

Dragon Slayer coming soon to iOS

Glu Mobile has released a trailer for its upcoming cross between Monster Hunter and Infinity Blade for iOS and Android devices, Dragon Slayer. The game sees you playing a battle wizard who takes on a series of increasingly enormous flying lizards in daring one on one battles. Cue lots of magic spells and probably quite a lot of getting eaten too. Scheduled for release this week sometime, the game will be available on iOS and Android devices for the princely sum of nothing at all. We've embedded the trailer below so you can get an idea as to the size of the opponents you're going to be facing when the games hits the App Store and the Google Play Store in the not too distant future.…

Shadowgun Deadzone explodes onto iOS devices

Madfinger's multiplayer only follow up to their Gears of War style third person shooter has landed on iOS and Android devices, and it's looking mighty fine. The game, which is free to play, sees you blasting it out against friends and foes in a series of arenas, using guns with names like Big Boy, Mace, and S**tStorm to slay your opponents. Deadzone is free to play, and you can spend cash on lumps of gold that'll help you get the better weapons quicker. With ten playable characters, two multiplayer modes, and up to twelve players online at once, the game is set to bring console style multiplayer mayhem to smaller screens. The game is available from the App Store and the Google Play Stor…

The Walking Dead finale hits iOS the same day as console and PC

November the 21st is the date for your diary if you're a fan of TellTale's harrowing point and click adventure series, as that's when the final episode, No Time Left will be released world wide. Where iOS device owners have had to wait patiently for the other installments while their console playin brethren ooh, aah, and scream in the next room, that's not going to happen this time, with the game hitting the App Store the same day as Steam, XBLA, and PSN. Interesting, the game is being dubbed as a season finale, which certainly suggests we can expect more pointing and clicking near zombies from TellTale in the not too distant future. It's only a few days since Episode 4 made its way ont…

Danny Trejo and Steve Wozniak team up to fight injustice

It's hard to think of a stranger team up than Danny Trejo - heavily tattoed reformed killer turned action movie actor - and Steve Wozniak - cuddly co-founder of Apple and occasional dancer with the stars. But that's exactly what tablet gamers are going to get in the not too distant future. A promotional tie-in for Trejo's next movie Vengenace called Danny Trejo's Vengeance: Woz With A Coz. Slated for a thanksgiving release, which could legitimately be anytime in the next week or so, we don't know anything about the game other that what we can gleam from its poster, which you can see above. Expect shooting, stabbing, and plenty of cartoon violence when the game hits tablets - which we pr…

Saturday Morning RPG episode 3 arrives

The third episode of the classic eighties cartoon inspired turn based RPG has hit the App Store, and it promises to be the largest update to the entertaining game so far. Episode 3 appears to focus heavily on robots, which isn't too much of a surprise when you consider its subtitle, To Bot or Not To Bot. There are extra boss encounters, and a new hoverboard that you can unlock to speed up travel times between locations in the game. Throw in some gameplay tweaks and you're left with a decent package. We've embedded a trailer for the episode below so you can get an idea of what you're going to be up against, and the new episode should be available to anyone who's purchased the game as a fre…

Fist of Awesome turns to Kickstarter

Nicoll Hunt, developer of the rather special Hard Lines, has turned to Kickstarter for a final push to get his next game, Fist of Awesome, finished off. The game sees you taking the role of Tim Burr, a Lumberjack who finds his house burned down and his family vanished. Cue time travel, side-scrolling, and an awful lot of bear punching. There's also a chiptune soundtrack provided by Echolevel. With a classic beat 'em up feel, a unique look, and plenty of character, Fist of Awesome certainly has the goods to stand out from the crowd in the App Store. And Hunt has a pedigree too, having worked for a number of AAA developers before finding success on his own with Hard Lines. You can check out…

Episode 4 of The Walking Dead creeps onto iOS

The penultimate episode of TellTale's point and click adventure based around the award winning comic series has finally shuffled onto iOS devices. The game follows apocalypse survivor Lee ands a ragtag band of other humans as they make their way through zombie infested territory, heading for Atlantic City. If you've already bought the full game on the App Store for $14.99, the new episode should be available for download right now. If you're paying as you go for the zombie adventure, it'll set you back $4.99. We gave the first episode of the game a 4 when we reviewed it earlier in the year, praising its tension and the way your conversations really had an affect on the world.…
