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

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 #…

Multiplayer Mode Strikes Infinity Blade On 19th May

Hackers 'n' slashers of this world: put down your weapons and gather round... Multiplayer mode is about to be unsheathed in Infinity Blade!! Yes, it’s true, it’s true (screenshots below are proof, if you don’t believe me). ChAIR Entertainment’s – ahem - epic tale of revenge, bloodlines, heroism, and God Kings will receive its hugely anticipated update tomorrow (19th May). Alongside the multiplayer Arena mode, which consists of best-of-seven clashes between a fearless knight and a bloody great monster, Infinity Blade’s latest refresh includes a new Survivor mode. Somewhat inevitably given its title, this single player fare challenges you to last as long as you humanly can in a…


Polarbit Take Another Crack At Kart Racing

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.…

DeathSpank Team Launch Full Scale Assault On iOS

Hothead Games is a famed indie console game developer and publisher based in Vancouver, Canada. You may know them from such titles as DeathSpank, Precipice of Darkness, and Swarm. What may be news to you, though, is that aforementioned studio is branching out...sorry, is BRANCHED out. First off, this acclaimed console team launched Bunny the Zombie Slayer onto the App Store, a castle defence title starring a resolute and - dare I say it – rampant rabbit. Second off, Hothead Games has blasted the colourful, retro space shooter Chromanoids onto iPhone and iPad, featuring power-ups, waves and waves of enemy, and romance. Yes, romance. That’s not all from the Spanky boys: a multiplayer…

TNA Wrestling Impact! Hitting iPhone Ring On 19th May

Vince McMahon’s legendary WWE promotion stepped into the App Store squared circle with its Angry Birds-alike Superstar Slingshot a month or so ago. Long-time rival federation TNA (or Total Nonstop Action to the non-believers), meanwhile, debuted on iPhone in front of a sizeable crowd in 2009 with its RPG / sports hybrid title. And Dixie Carter’s boys are looking to bring it once again, as Namco Bandai’s TNA Wrestling Impact! is scheduled for one fall on 19th May. Many of your favourite TNA grapplers will be in action, including Kurt Angle, RVD, and AJ Styles, while it’ll also be possible to create your own wrestler and fashion a few nifty finishing moves for him to pull off. I wi…

Cartographers and N.O.V.A. 2 fans alike will be pleased to know that Gameloft have thrown us a lovely new downloadable map pack to scour, as well as a handful of bug fixes.

15 Extra Levels In Jump Out! Update

Avallon Alliance’s Cut the Rope-inspired Jump Out! only leapt onto the App Store on 22nd April, yet the developers have already rolled out two updates. The major refresh, otherwise known as v. 1.5, brings some rather dull improvements – namely performance enhancements – and some rather exciting goodies to this beguiling physics-based puzzler. And given one of Andrew’s few criticisms about Jump Out! was its longevity, the inclusion of 15 brand stonking new levels should atone for that shortcoming to a degree. Retina display support for compatible iHandsets has also been added in the latest revision, making those awfully darling bugs pop and zing across the screen. Whilst Avallon A…

Green Farm Ploughs Onto iPhone and iPad

FarmVille thief (just kidding, Zynga) Green Farm has moseyed its way on down to the iPhone and iPad all the way from Zuckerberg Alley. The good news for existing Green Farm ranchers is that you'll have no need to bellow 'GET OFF MY LAND!' into the digital darkness, like some mad, binary lunatic. This is almost entirely - in fact, entirely - because you can just log back into your pre-existing Facebook farm and carry on trowling there. If you are so inclined, you can purchase seeds, animals, and buildings to pimp your farm, or go green with organic plants and other imaginary renewable energy sources. Why not visit a friend's farm and play some mini-games, too, eh? Gameloft have promised…

Duke Nukem Forever Heading To iPhone?

A lot has changed in Britain since 1997. The Labour Party swept to victory only to be ousted by a coalition government. Prince William met a fetching young lady at Uni and proceeded to marry her. London submitted a bid for the Olympic Games...and won. Oddly. One underlying constant throughout this period, though, is the appearance (or rather non-appearance) of first-person shooter Duke Nukem Forever. This mythical beast should – and one emphasises the word ‘should’ here – finally hit store shelves on 10th June 10 under the stewardship of Gearbox Software. You may justifiably ask, “Why is he mentioning all this?” Simples. A Touch Arcade forum goer has donned his detective ha…

Capcom Make Beeline For Glo Flo On iPhone

If you can work out exactly what's going on in Flo Glo from the screenshot below, then you can probably already see The Matrix and have no desire to play games. If you can't, however, and have a bit of a penchant for puzzle games, then you'll be interested to know that Capcom's new mobile arm Beeline Interactive have released their first game. Flo Glo asks you to reunite glow worm pals without their bumping into worms of other colours (presumably because they don't know each other that well and it would be properly awkward). Sound easy? Well, there are 60 levels, several game modes, and an online leaderboard, so it's not. Nerrrr! UK and US iOS users with a spare $1.99 can buy Flo Glo…
