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.

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

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…


Hot To-Fu To Be Poured On iPhone At End Of May

Hot To-Fu To Be Poured On iPhone At End Of May

Editors Note: Originally posted by Michael McNally - technical issues required it to be reposted. Sorry for the confusion! London-based games tinkerers HotGen have announced that their action-puzzler To-Fu: The Trials of Chi will boing onto the App store before the month is out. The game's putty-like protagonist, To-Fu, is pinged from platform to platform by your finger across 100 levels, all in the name of collecting orbs. And at heart, To-Fu's an affable chap: cuddly, at a stretch. (Boom boom.) This cuddliness is in stark contrast to the game's levels, which have more buzzsaws and spike-shaped hazards than the Saw boxset. Have a spy at the To-Fu: The Trials of Chi snaps below to give…

Pix'n Love Rush Updated With Extra Mode

Pix'n Love Rush had us purring with nostalgic delight back in July 2010, thanks to its retro feel and banquet of available achievements. Well, Pastagames and Bulkypix's pretty platformer leaps back into our consciousness with a welcome update. In the newly released version 3.0, you can tackle a so-called hardcore mode called 'Rainbow Rush', which tests your survival skills to the limit. Hopefully, this additional gameplay mode will entertain us long into 2011, yet even if it doesn't quite manage that, who cares: It's free! And we all know what the best things in life are, don't we. (Stop that sniggering at the front.)…


Monster Hunter Dynamic Hunting Prowls The iPhone

Monster Hunter Dynamic Hunting Prowls The iPhone

Japanese publication Andriasang has revealed that Capcom's PSP hit Monster Hunter Dynamic Hunting will be battling onto iPhones in June. In this ultra-popular franchise, you engage in one-on-one fights with monsters from the series, evading and attacking by using a variety of sweaty-fingered moves. As expected, you move by sliding a digit in that direction. In addition, you have the ability to change items with the bottom-right icon, whereafter you can return to mashing the screen like some sugar-fuelled maniac. There'll be no need to envy the Japanese on this occasion, either. Capcom have revealed that Monster Hunter Dynamic Hunter will be a worldwide release. Check out the screenies b…

Simigo Set Bumpy Road's Wheels In Motion

Swedish two-man indie team Simogo made their debut on iPhone with the beautifully drawn arcader Kosmo Spin just before Christmas. Brilliantly for us – and indeed you - it’s only taken Simon and Magnus five months to follow that AppSpy 4* game up. Bumpy Road is described by its creators as a ‘love story on four wheels’, with the romantic leads played by an elderly couple in a vintage motor. By tapping on the touchscreen, you ‘bump’ the side-scrolling senior citizens over platforms, collecting bits and bobs along the voyage. Game Center leaderboards and achievements are integrated into Bumpy Road, while Retina display support delivers an extra visual sparkle to owners of an iPh…

Playflo's Tap the Frog Lands Top Mobile Award

Ukraine upstart Playfo is jumping for joy this week as it has won two awards for its iOS prod-a-thon Tap the Frog. This colourful test of finger speed bagged the much coveted 'Best mobile game' at Flash GAMM 2011 in Moscow and swooped in, as frogs naturally do, for the 'Mobile of the day' award at FWA (Favourite Website Awards). Playfo's supreme commander Vitaliy Onishenko gushed: This is a great success of our game!...We decided to celebrate recognition and allow more people to enjoy our game - so we reduced price to $0.00 in App Store for few days! Clearly eager to air a sneaky pun, developer Mentals's lead producer Sergey Romanyuk added: Our froggy game hopped really fast into Top #…

Hackers 'n' slashers of this world: put down your weapons and gather round... Multiplayer mode is about to be unsheathed in Infinity Blade!!

Polarbit Take Another Crack At Kart Racing

'Cracking Sands' isn't an Englishman complimenting a beach, or anything like that at all, actually. Rather, it's the codename for Swedish studio Polarbit's new iOS kart racer. Polarbit do love their racing games, having already entertained us with Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart and more serious sims such as Raging Thunder 2. With a noticeably top-down perspective and the winning formula of cartoon characters, power-ups, and power slides, Cracking Sands looks to be gearing up for action very nicely. You'll get further details when we do, so sit tight. In the meantime, feast your eyes on the screenies below. Enjoy.…
