Butters from South Park is getting his very own pinball game, courtesy of Zen Studios

South Park: Super-Sweet Pinball, and South Park: Butters' Very Own Pinball Game are new South Park-themed tables coming to Zen Pinball shortly. South Park: Super-Sweet Pinball follows the pinball exploits of Cartman, Kenny, Stan and Kyle, and references various episodes of the TV series along the way. But the real news here is that literally everyone's favourite cartoon character - Butters Stotch - will also be receiving a table of his very own, appropriately titled South Park: Butters' Very Own Pinball Game. South Park Pinball will be released this week on iOS and Android (plus PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PS Vita, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC and Mac), and costs $3.99 / £2.49 as a st…

Final Fantasy VI Symphonic Poem is 20 minutes of orchestral awesome

"The music of Nobuo Uematsu remains as powerful and as moving today as it did when we first heard it 20 years ago" - that's what producer Thomas Böcker said of the Final Fantasy composer's oeuvre, and I think you'd be hard pushed to disagree. So you should definitely spend part of today watching the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra cracking through 20 minutes of Final Fantasy VI's score, as part of its anniversary celebrations. To do so, all you need to do is click this link right here, and you'll be transported to the RSPO's official website. Have patience though: the video's worth watching, but the site itself is antiquated, taking approximately 1 billion years to load anythin…

PBR: Raging Bulls is the official bull riding game of the Professional Bull Riders organization, out soon on your iOS device

TIL: that there's an organization that presides over bull riding, and it's called PBR, and it has an arcade-oriented game coming out on iOS in which you ride a variety of absurd types of bull. It's called PBR: Raging Bulls, and the trailer shows off some of its different bull types, including robot bulls that teleport, dragon bulls that fly through the air, British pilot bulls with handsome moustaches, and so on. Here's the trailer, it looks ace.…

WinterForts: Exiled Kingdom is out now on Android and iOS, brings a new twist on strategy management

It seems like every week we see a new game like Clash of Clans come along, and while WinterForts: Exiled Kingdom may use that formula as its base, it's also a little bit different, a little bit special. The main change, and it's an important one, is that there's more strategy to defence construction, with the option to setup your fortress in such a way that forces enemies down routes that will likely spell their demise.

The launch trailer for Skater sees Andrew Reynolds talk you through an infamous Hollywood skate spot

Skater is Frosch Media's play for the title of "best simulation skateboarding game", and though we haven't played it enough yet to confirm if that's the case, it's certainly super authentic: the game replicates real world skate parks and spots - such as the Carlsbad Gap and Woodward Plaza - and features big name skate brands too. The launch trailer is equally in tune with skating culture, with pro skater Andrew Reynolds explaining the history of the 12 and 16 step at Hollywood High, a spot featured in Skater. Skater is out now on iPhone and iPod Touch, it'll cost you $4.99 / £2.99. [App Store link]…

I want you to look at how beautifully elegant Find the Line is

That gentle piano soundtrack. The easy going control scheme. Those simple but striking visuals. Seriously, Find the Line looks elegant as all heck. The game's out this week on the App Store, and I for one can't wait to see more of it.…

Sleep Attack TD trailer will leave you spinning

The big twist in Sleep Attack TD is that, in addition to placing down towers to defend your location, you can also quite literally twist the battlegrounds to work in your favour. So if powerful enemies are approaching from one angle, but your towers that will deal with them most effectively are in another location, you can simply spin the world around and bring the baddies to the area they'll be weakest in. Neat, eh? Sleep Attack TD will be available October 23rd on the App Store, and will be priced $2.99 / £1.99. Here's the trailer to keep you going until then.…

Add 'bracelet that can play Tetris' to your list of novel gaming wearables

Yep, you read that right, a very clever person with an eye for fashion tech has created a bracelet that runs a full-on version of Tetris. It's not exactly the most handsome looking bit of jewellery, and the potential for other games on bracelets is perhaps a little limited, but nevertheless this is a very cool achievement in engineering.…

Darkness Reborn intro film shows new gameplay footage of the MORPG, Android Closed Beta registration now open

As you'll see in the trailer below, you'll be tackling not one mighty boss in Darkness Reborn, but two: a double-headed dragon called Belphegor, and a fallen knight named Damien. Darkness Reborn appears to be taken a story-driven approach for its MORPG action, featuring flashy combat, dynamic camera angles, and special effects aplenty. What's potentially even more interesting, though, is that the game features multiplayer co-op dungeoneering, six player boss raids, and three on three PvP - all of which is completely synchronous. If you have an Android device, live in the United States or Canada, and feel like playing the game before anyone else, you can sign up for the Closed Beta here. T…

Skylanders Trap Team prank video is directed by Jackass creator, voiced by Adam Carolla, actually quite funny

Here's the deal: Skylanders Trap Team is out soon, and it's awesome. You can watch our review here and gawp at its high definition full console experience loveliness. The game is primarily aimed at kids, and kids are easily tricked by grown-ups - grown-ups like Jeff Tremaine (the co-creator of Jackass) and comedian Adam Carolla. So the pair of them embedded themselves in a toy shop to prank a bunch of kids. What unfolds is a bit brilliant.…

Check out this footage of Chop Block's endless minimalist platforming

Vital Zigns' latest - Chop Block - is a hardcore platformer, and if you're a regular AppSpy viewer then you'll know I'm a sucker for a hardcore platformer. I'm immediately reminded of Super Meat Boy when watching the newly-released trailer for Chop Block: the minimalist art style, the need for precision, the spinning blades, and so on. Instead of Meat Boy, you'll be playing as Woodman, and it's your job to guide him away from dangers for as long as possible, until you're inevitably chipped. Chop Block is a free-to-play game and will be available on iOS and Android from October 9th.…
