Turn your phone into a skateboard with Gyro Skate, out now on iOS and Android

Turn your phone into a skateboard with Gyro Skate, out now on iOS and Android

When I was but a wee lad, myself and the other kids would play with finger skateboards. These were miniature versions of actual skateboards that you - you guessed it - used your fingers to ride around with. Nowadays, the kids are using their phones for pretty much everything, so it makes sense for an app to be released to turn your mobile into a skateboard, right? Right?! It turns out Gyro Skate is actually a pretty cool app. You choose a trick based on a few different difficulties, then the app will show you a video of how exactly to flip or spin your phone to do the trick. You then have a go yourself, with the app using the gyroscope in your phone (just make sure yours has one) to…

Taichi Panda is an iOS action RPG featuring a massive panda, and it's out later this month

You know that feeling you get when you see something and instantly realise that it's been missing from your life? Well, apparently an overweight Tai Chi master panda beating up hordes of other bipedal animals in a beautiful Asian setting has been missing from mine. Taichi Panda is the game that gave me this realisation. It's an iOS action RPG due out later this month and it features two other playable characters: a barely dressed female treasure hunter named Lauren Catcher and an overly muscular fella named Lulandore. The panda Tai Chi master's name? Pan Da... but why don't we all ignore that terrible pun and check out the action-filled trailer below?…

Drive yourself crazy in the colourful and atmospheric buggy racer Stunt Rush, out now on Google Play

Stunt Rush is an arcade stunt racer in which you drive, jump, spin, and twist your way around a psychedellically coloured world of tagliatelle roads and blocky obstacles. It looks like what (I can only imagine) playing Mario Kart on hallucinogenic drugs would be like. It's certainly one of the best looking mobile racers we've seen, and is an Android exclusive right now which is a real rarity. I think it's fair to say that this is one of the more creative stunt racing games we've recently covered but don't take our word for it, check out the trailer below. [Google Play link]…

Stop everything! You need to watch the karaoke trailer for Office Chair Zombie Attack

In Office Chair Zombie Attack you tilt and twist your device around to line up the crosshairs of your gun and blow zombies to smithereens. The game's presented in a cartoonish 3D, there are lots of enemies and weapons, and leaderboards to compare your shooting skills with your mates. Sounds fun! But the developer - A Small Game - really caught our eye with its 90s karaoke-themed trailer for the title. It's brilliant and silly and you have to watch it right now. Office Chair Zombie Attack comes to iPhone and iPad on the 25th of December.…

The maker of Enemy Territory: Quake Wars and Brink unveils Tempo, a brand new game on iOS

If the official trailer from Splash Damage is anything to go by, Tempo looks set to be the Michael Bay movie that iOS gamers didn't realise they needed. From the minds behind Enemy Territory: Quake Wars and Brink, this sneak peek starts strong with some suited chump asking for a ridiculous one trillion pounds, or else he'll blow up the entirety of London. Cue cover based shooting, reflex-driven martial arts, and all the explosions a Mr. Bay uber fan might need. Tempo will come to iOS in January. We'll keep you updated when we hear more.…

Cooking Fever's latest update is a bit fishy, Android version coming Q1 2015

The first time you have sushi, almost without fail, you look like this. But then, after you've tasted its umami deliciousness, you inevitably wind up looking like this. Nordcurrent has just added some fish, rice, and nori delights to Cooking Fever, but this time there's a twist. The new update is a bit different to previous ones (such as the English Breakfast update) as it changes up the gameplay to better represent the creative process behind throwing together a bit of Maki. You need to select the right ingredients, roll said ingredients together, and ensure the finished product is stored correctly, before serving them to hungry customers. If you're an Android gamer then you'll also be…

Tiny Realms coming to Android early 2015, big updates for iOS players before Christmas

If you're waiting for the Android version (or you haven't yet downloaded the game for your iPhone or iPad), here's the brand new trailer for the Battlegrounds mode to get you…
