Someone else should have done it - AppSpy's Sunday Service

Someone else should have done it - AppSpy's Sunday Service

It's Sunday, and that can only mean one thing! I've got a hangover. But that's fine, because I wrote this post on Friday, so it's not going to affect my ability to type up words good. Wheeeeeee! Here's what happened this week. The Big Stories 1. We went hands-on with Sorcery 3 from gamebook legends Inkle. We liked it. You might like it too, so go watch it. 2. We also got our grubby mitts on Operation Dracula. Don't worry, you don't have to say fangs. 3. You want more!?! Fine, we rubbed sweaty men up against one another in non-sexy combat in WWE 2K. 4. And after that, or, more chronologically accurately, before that, we shot a T-Rex in the face in Lara Croft: Relic Run. 5. More!?! MORE!…

11 Pako: Car Chase Simulator feats that defy duplication

Pako: Car Chase Simulator is the epitome of what I look for in a mobile game: colorful and clean visuals, simple controls, an uncluttered interface, and immediately satisfying gameplay. But what really differentiates this one from the rest is its key driving mechanic: the strategic use of drifting to maneuver past cars and environmental hazards alike. It’s hard to accurately explain Pako’s vehicular glory with words alone, so I’ve chosen a series of videos that showcase the title’s drift-based action. If you’ve a fancy to supplement the videos on this list, feel free to do so in the comments. Put on your paranoia hats, everyone - it’s a symbol for the ri…

12 stupefying shots from Super Stickman Golf 2 in honor of the upcoming sequel

Last month at GDC 2015, our friends at PocketGamer took a first look at the upcoming Super Stickman Golf 3, which is being developed by iOS stalwart Noodlecake Studios. New features include updated 2.5D graphics, wind (it’ll be a breeze to handle!), and a fully-featured level editor that’ll even let you tweak gravity. That’s a weighty addition for sure. To remind you of the strengths of the Stickman Golf series, here’s a taste of what the fantastic second installment has to offer. And remember, if you’ve hit a hole-in-one that’s second to none, post a link in the comments. Pure golfing skill. And probably also many retries. Which one is cooler, this…

7 Top Gear: Race the Stig runs that reach Jeremy Clarkson levels of insanity

Ah, good old J.C. One minute he’s waxing eloquent about motoring, and in the next he's punching producers, telling off political heavyweights, and making racially insensitive jokes. It's almost as if he tries to attract attention through controversy... Anyway, Race the Stig is a fun little endless runner in the same vein as Subway Surfers, and features a selection of iconic vehicles from the show. To give you an idea of how it plays, I’ve chosen 7 replays, and then, for a bit of spice, paired them with equally crazy things Clarkson might do some day. Enjoy! 1. Jeremy Clarkson refuses to say “bless you” after a sneeze 2. Jeremy Clarkson rants against the Welsh langu…
