Super early footage of Lynn and the Spirits of Inao shows off the Studio Ghibli-esque presentation and Metroidvania gameplay

French outfit Bloomylight Studio has announced Lynn and the Spirits of Inao, a game which they're hoping will be a perfect combination of Princess Mononoke and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Now that is a very tall order. But from the alpha footage we've seen (which you can see below), it appears the team is on the right track. A gorgeous anime-influenced aesthetic, lots of fast action, puzzle and exploration elements, and that soundtrack... oh man... that soundtrack is giving me goosebumps already. The team is planning to release the game around October of 2015 on both iOS and Android (and PC, Mac, and Wii U). AppSpy's going to keep tabs on Lynn and the Spirits of Inao, we suggest…

Catch zombies and turn them into food for humans in Zombie Catchers, out this week

Two Men and a Dog's first game has been in development for 12 months, and we've been eager to play more ever since we discovered it at PG Connects. Now it's finally ready for public consumption: Zombie Catchers is hitting iOS this week. The game will be released on October 30th and stars a menacing alien chap running around trying to capture zombies, then turning those zombies into fast food for human beings to consume. I'm betting that Zombie Catchers is going to be a bit of a hit, so take a look at the gameplay trailer now to see what's in-store.…

This brutal GIF of a Space Wolf Scout shooting a Chaos Marine and shattering his skull is all sorts of awesome

As Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf approaches launch, Herocraft has popped us over a GIF, and I just had to share it with you. It's a Space Wolf Scout with a Sniper Rifle, taking aim and firing at one of the legion of Chaos. And it is absolutely devastating. PS. You grabbed your code for a free Booster already, right?…

Chain Breaker is an auto-runner / platformer / puzzler hybrid, and this is what it looks like

Chain Breaker is from indie developer Lemonauts. It's a game all about running through levels, and cutting chains and smashing platforms to create safe paths through said levels.

The game's out now for iPhone and iPad, it's 99c / 69p, you can find it on the link below. [App Store link]…

'Tea and the Tub' video from Supercell shows Boom Beach's massive new Task Forces update, reveals Lt. Hammerman love of bubbles

Even evil dictators need some "me time" every once in a while, and Lt. Hammerman is no exception. The 'Tea and the Tub' trailer that Supercell's just popped out is evidence of this. But it's not all about the relaxation: this video also explains all about the huge new update that finally adds clan support to Boom Beach. I was a big fan of Boom Beach, but I lost interest after the updates seemed to dry up. However, with this new content, which is out now as a free update, I'm very tempted to return...…

Bounty Hunt is a free-to-play gunslinging duel in the wild west

Games set in the wild west are almost always a bit naff, with a few exceptions, most notably Sunset Riders and Red Dead Redemption. I'm yet to play Bounty Hunt, but the trailer looks really promising. It's a duelling game with a "flick fire" mechanic, Wi-Fi multiplayer, some cool weather effects, character customisation, and the ability to get new weapons as well as upgrading the ones you already have. Here's that trailer I mentioned earlier. Bounty Hunt is out now on iOS and Android, and it's free-to-play. [App Store link][Google Play link]…

Twisty Hollow is full of spinning wheels, kooky characters, and bacon

Arkadium's latest puzzle game is Twisty Hollow, and I'm loving the papercraft look to it. In addition to the maple syrup sweet visual style, there's also 50 levels of spinning a wheel to solve puzzles, thereby satisfying the demands of the local populace and a tyrannical mayor. These demands include gathering up bacon. Twisty Hollow is out on October 30th as a paid game for iOS and Android. Here's the announcement trailer.…

Drift'n'Drive trailer reveals 4 person local multiplayer, 60fps play, and thumping soundtrack, has me shaking with anticipation

I love nothing more than a good arcade racing game, and it looks like Drift'n'Drive is shaping up to be a very good arcade racing game. It's a top-down racer where you fight through a pack of cars, avoid obstacles on the track, and use speed boosts to win championships. Gameplay mods and randomly generated tracks should keep things fresh, there are upgrades to be made to vehicles, there's single screen multiplayer for up to 4 people, it's a silky smooth 60 frames per second, and EDM artist Tommy Baynen (who's been featured on Armin van Buuren's ASOT, as well as contributing music to AG Drive) provides the soundtrack. I'm hyped, here's the trailer.…
