March of Heroes Will Be Gameloft’s First Unreal Engine Game

March of Heroes Will Be Gameloft’s First Unreal Engine Game

Perpetual copycats (though we won't hold that against them) Gameloft have finally given us a nugget regarding their much-anticipated Unreal Engine-based outing. The name of the game March of Heroes was announced by the Paris-headquartered studio via Twitter...and that is pretty much that, I'm afraid. We can expect more details, however, from the fast-approaching E3 conference in Los Angeles, but until then it’s up to us to interpret the title ourselves. We reckon it’ll either be a WW2-based shooter in the vein of Medal of Honour or Call of Duty, or it’ll be a superhero inspired walking simulator. I wonder which one to plump for...…


Konami's Classic X-Men Sneaks Its Way Onto iOS

Konami's Classic X-Men Sneaks Its Way Onto iOS

What's this coming in at a sneaky angle to iPhone and iPad? Why, it's Konami's 1992 arcade side-scroller X-Men. Even though Konami is presumably too preoccupied with E3 to publicise its release, we've decided to do their job for them today. Players of the original cabinet classic will know they're in for a treat, and those that don't should assume they soon will be. Utilising an on-screen joystick and button combo, X-Men invites you to take charge of mutant goodies Cyclops, Colossus, Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler, or Dazzler. As you can imagine, the aim is to bring down Magneto's naughty little scheme by blasting, teleporting, and, errr, punching your way through hordes of unwitting paw…

New Month, New Season, Top Games - Have Your Say

Depending on where you happen to be located, June means Winter or Summer - in either case there's one constant... top games of the month! Whether you're finishing up exams, grafting away at your job or taking a break from it all, handheld gaming can be a great way to blast through a few spare moments to perk up the day. I get the privilege on an almost daily basis, but how about you? What games have caught your interest over the last month? Is it something new? Something old? Have you strayed from the App Store path or did you struggle to connect to anything during May? While I work on AppSpy's Top 3 for May, have your say in the comments! Title image courtesy of L.

Retro Games Unleash Velocispider On iOS Population

Retro Games Unleash Velocispider On iOS Population

In Retro Dreamer's Velocispider (its non-spritual successor to the fabulous match-three puzzler Linkoidz) you play a half-spider, half-velociraptor, err, thing. Yes, i know. Strangely, though, whatever skills you might presume this kind of mutant would possess are academic, since our hybrid hero elects to protect its eggs from a group of alien invaders with an armoury of shoulder-mounted laser guns. Control of your mutated creature is tilt-based, with firing automatic whenever you have a foe in your sights. Power-ups rain down from defeated enemies in the shape of faster fire, double fire, three-way fire, while Game Center support is included for when you go postal on the invading popula…

Speedball 2 Evolution Free For One Day

As part of the FreeAppADay initiative, Bitmap Bros.'s iOS remake of their brutal classic Speedball 2 Evolution is free for one day only. That is, today! The FreeAppADay app lets users wish for any popular paid app to become free for 24 hours. So, if futuristic, extreme, team-based sports are your thing, thank your lucky FreeAppADay stars and get downloading. A few months ago on review, we commented that 'despite having 20 years under its belt, Speedball 2 Evolution still feels as fun as it ever did.' Andrew thus saw fit to throw Speedball 2 Evolution a 4 (out of 5) rating...and that was when we were paying for the privilege.…

Tackle A Pop-Infused Zombie Apocalypse In Save Toshi 2

If only some otherworldly demonic force would burst through the earth's crust and drag some of the tepid, lifeless, manufactured popstar pap away from our screens, newspapers, and lives... Perhaps thoughts like this were going through the team at Nitako's collective minds as they sat down to discuss the plotline of their latest outing - and sequel to Save Toshi - Popstar Physics. Demons have kidnapped cutesy anime popstar Toshi, and without her devil-slaying dance powers to protect the world, a zombie apocalypse has ensued. Popstar Physics unsurprisingly serves up more of the same Save Toshi-style action: you're tasked with shooting balls around to destroy zombie clones of the unfortunate…


NaturalMotion's Icebreaker Slashes Onto iPhone On 2nd June

NaturalMotion's Icebreaker Slashes Onto iPhone On 2nd June

The release of Icebreaker, NaturalMotion's explosive new ice hockey sim, has been, wait for it...put on ice until next week. NaturalMotion's previous title Backbreaker Football cut away all of the fluff associated with gridiron to focus purely on the art of tackling. In doing so, Backbreaker Football picked up a 5/5 from AppSpy and sold 3 million copies. NaturalMotion will be looking to emulate that success with Icebreaker, where the overriding principle remains roughly the same: race from one end of the rink to the other, evade several opponents, and blast the puck into the unwitting goal. You can spin and dodge along the icy gauntlet, with more advanced techniques for scoring becoming…

Stunning Tower Defence Game Sentinel 3: Homeworld Gets Update

Origin8's visually striking tower defence game Sentinel 3: Homeworld has been given new DLC, an update, and a celebratory 80% price slash. Yipppee!! The fresh downloadable content includes 15 new campaign levels across 15 new maps, with the first two of each free for those of us lucky enough to already own this 5-star game. New weapons such as the Vortex and Turret Energizer Sentinel are available after the update, alongside the Energy Syphon, which satisfyingly converts kills into ship energy. Toss in six new challenge modes and that price cut to 99c is starting to look like a real bargain. Don't dally, though: the sale is only on until 30th May, so space cadets should get their boots…

Demolition Dash On App Store Now For 99c

Anyone with a interest in destroying everything in sight will be pleased to read that Demolition Dash is now available on iPhone. The anti-hero of Chimera Entertainment's is Zilla, a little tyke who must run, jump, and pummel through eight cities and 24 stages to complete his rampaging mission. Demolition Dash looks like it could be a helluva lot of fun, with Game Center achievements boosting its replayability and additional game modes promised by the developers in future updates. Release some of that pent-up anger and frustration via Demolition Dash at the introductory price of 99c. You'll feel so much better for it!…

Prose With Bros Now With Added Banter

iOS insult-'em-up Prose with Bros has just received an update including a new word pack, tweaked sentence creation, and some bug fixes. Previously, stringing together random words to make ridiculously convoluted sentences and then having them rated for awesomeness over 24 hours had been a stop / start experience, with bugs rife throughout. No more. The developers Evil Laugh Games have bestowed upon us 300 more words (on top of the 1100 aready available) with which players can banter their way into nonsensical sentence creation infamy. Besides that, the buggy word-dragging feature has been oiled up a bit, preventing words getting stuck on screen. Hopefully, wordsmiths won't find as m…

iOS Slayer Vampire Rush On Sale At 99c

The wind whispers his name, villages hum with the trail of his wake, and vampires from American high schools to Transylvania tremble at the very thought of... Greg. Rubbishy - or possibly ironic - name aside, the protagonist of Chillingo's tactical Dracula destroyer Vampire Rush on iOS is back and on sale at 99c for a limited time. In essence, it's a mixture of upgrade-based tactical defence and up-close-and-bloody button-smashing, halting wave after wave of horrific fang barons from escaping into the overworld. If that combination makes you thirsty for blood and downloads, you can quench yourself by purchasing Vampire Rush from the App Store yesterday.…

Evil Dead Shooter Decomposing Its Way Onto iOS

Fans of Sam Raimi's Evil Dead movie trilogy can ogle some shiny new images from the soon-to-be-arriving movie spin-off iOS game. Players can take on the role of Ashley J. "Ash" Williams, as he mutilates his way through hordes of Deadites, rescues his friends, and takes down bosses. All this with his trademark boomsticks, axes, and chainsaws in tow. As you can see in the screenshots, the game has a distinctly chibi style with super deformed characters sporting massive cartoon noggins as they dish out mass zomicide. Early reports indicate that while the game follows the same storyline as the movies, there are other plotlines involved to keep things interesting. You'll be able to play throu…

Max Damage Is Jenga With A Gun

Sometimes, games don't have to be about saving the world, collecting trophies, or even managing a football team. Sometimes, we all like to settle back with a hand cannon and watch things burn. In Max Damage, Dundee-based developer Digital Goldfish is going to give us another excuse to cause wanton destruction all over our iOS systems. With an array of cannons on offer such as lasers, machine guns and TNT launchers players will have to cause, well, Maximum Damage, through various colourful cartoon block filled stages. Similar to other physics-based puzzlers like Angry Birds and Fragger players can rate themselves via a three star ranking system through 50 levels of playful block genocide.…

Two Extra Levels Bolster Siege Hero's Battlement

Not two weeks after its release, Armor Games's physics-based puzzler Siege Hero has only gone and got itself an update. But what could possibly have been updated so soon? Well, for one thing, the difficulty curve has been smoothened somewhat - good news for noobs. For two things, a couple of extra levels have been included in Treasure Map mode. If you're a bit greedy and that's still not enough for you, then consider this... Scores for the Treasure Map now contribute to the overall Fortress Age tally. A Total Score leaderboard, therefore, has been introduced by Armor Games for you to gauge how much of a destructive menace you truly are. Siego Hero is available at a special introductory…

First Touch Soccer Updated To Universal Build

While the identity of the Premier League footballer purported to have shared relations with E-lister Imogen Thomas remains a mystery to all*, there's no secret whatsoever to First Touch Soccer's success. Exient's franchise reboot stepped onto the iPhone turf barely a week ago, and impressed Andrew from kick-off to the final whistle, netting a fabulous 5 out of 5 rating. But like any good management team, Exient haven’t rested on their laurels during the post-season, for they've already refreshed their First Touch Soccer squad via an update. The biggest addition to the First Touch Soccer team is unquestionably the universal build feature, meaning that iPad players can enjoy an experi…
