Swap Heroes 2 aims to improve pretty much every aspect of the original on February 18th

Swap Heroes may have the most self-explanatory title of all time. You control a party of four heroes - three at the front, one at the back. The one at the back can be swapped with any of those in the front during your turn in combat. Doing so will unleash the swapped character's special ranged or melee attack on the enemies in front of him. Plenty of new stuff has been added such as a quest system, character upgrades, and an endless mode where you fight until you die - just like in the original. Swap Heroes 2 is set to launch on the App Store on February 18th. Check out the official trailer below.…

How to play Bayonetta on your iPhone (sort of)

Yes, you read that correctly, AppSpies - you can now play Bayonetta on your iPhone. However, before your hopes get raised and then brought crashing down to earth in a spiral of hatred and death threats, this isn't the full Bayonetta experience that you'd get on your chosen console. Take a deep breath. This is the browser version of Bayonetta - which is still Bayonetta, just not THAT Bayonetta. You see? Check out the video below where James shows you how to get it running on your phone and a little taste as to how the game plays. Enjoy!…

Check out Vainglory's newest hero and technological powerhouse, Ardan

Ardan is the latest hero to be added to the Vainglory roster and he looks set to offer something a little different for veterans of the visually stunning MOBA. He's all about the technology, is Ardan, with a metal backpack and armour attached to a massive robotic arm that puts even Arnold Schwarzenegger's to shame. Ardan can take a few blows, with most of his abilities based around negating damage for himself and his companions. He also utilises his own energy system known as 'vengeance' which is empty when he begins a fight but both attacking and using abilities smartly recharges it for use. Check out the video below for an in-depth look at Vainglory's latest hero then follow t…

Fahrenheit Remastered is out now on iOS and an Android version is in the works

There has been a fair bit of hype surrounding Fahrenheit this week due to it kind of just re-appearing out of nowhere. The folks responsible for porting Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Aspyr Media, have once again used their expertise to bring an aging game to the world of touch. The iOS version is out right now and an Android version is expected to arrive later this year.

The first episode of Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect is out now on iOS

Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect quite liberally draws its inspirations from the Telltale adventure games. There's cel-shading, an episodic release schedule, and a plot taken from a popular film or TV series. Still, I guess it was inevitable that a developer would try and mimic the excellent framework laid down by Telltale. The launch trailer below gives you a look at the game in motion and the link below will take you right to the App Store page. [App Store link]…

Combo Queen is a charmingly-retro rhythm action RPG out now on iOS, out soon on Android

Combo Queen isn't just about comboing a variety of different enemies - even though it totally is about that - it's also about comboing loads of different genres as well. It's part auto-runner, part rhythm-action, and part action-RPG, and it's all wrapped up in beautiful, irresistible pixel art. Just look at that pixel art! You play as Queen, a duel axe-wielding warrior who's on an unstoppable murderous rampage. Combat is handled by well-timed taps for both attacking and blocking and you can upgrade your weapons which adds a nice RPG element to the game. Get mesmerised by the retro tunes in the trailer below and, if you like what you see, head on over to the App Store via the lin…

Trivia app Reveal 2 comes to iOS and Android on January 31st

Trivia app Reveal 2 comes to iOS and Android on January 31st

Everyone loves a bit of trivia from time to time, and I reckon the reason why is that it's always nice to a) feel smart, and b) boast about being smart. Being one of those people who knows a heck of a lot about a very small number of subjects, on the rare occasions my knowledge of, say, 90s West Coast punk rock acts becomes useful, you're damn right I'm going to shove it in other people's faces. Reveal 2 is a game that'll give you exactly that opportunity. It's free to download and comes with a bunch of different packs on a variety of different subjects to get you started on the road to lording it over your mates. The game's out this coming Saturday the 31st of January on iOS and Android.…

Is David Cage's Fahrenheit coming to iOS and Android?

Those old enough to have been a gamer during the PS2 and Xbox era may well remember David Cage's bizarre action-adventure game, Fahrenheit. Released back in 2005 by Quantic Dream, a recent Amazon listing has suggested that Fahrenheit might be coming to mobile this year. I'll leave it up to AppSpy's video wizard James to give you a lot more information in the video below.…

Exiles is Crescent Moon Games' mobile answer to Red Faction and is out this week on iOS

Formerly an Android exclusive, Exiles is making the iOS plunge this week - Thursday 29th to be precise. As our headline suggests, Exiles is essentially a mobile Red Faction with heavy RPG elements. It's been developed by Crescent Moon Games, responsible for Ravensword: Shadowlands and Aralon Sword and Shadow, so you could say that that team is well versed in bringing RPGs to mobile. Check out the trailer below for a look at Exiles in all its, quite frankly gorgeous, sci-fi action glory.…

The 8 best Western RPGs for people who don't like Western RPGs

The 8 best Western RPGs for people who don't like Western RPGs

For as long as I can remember, my favourite genre has been the RPG. At best you get a rich novel-length plot full of interesting characters, an action or tactical combat system, and a gorgeous fantasy world to explore at your leisure. The best part - you get to create a custom version of yourself and live out a full fantasy life within a videogame. Isn't that what games are for? It turns out that a few people don't actually like RPGs. Though puzzled at first, I eventually came to the conclusion that these sorts have three main RPG turn-offs: the length, complicated statistical systems, and a too much to see and do mentality. With these key reasons in mind I browsed the App Store RPG offer…

Moneygrabber is a one-tap iOS game about consumerism at its finest

Moneygrabber is a one-tap iOS game about consumerism at its finest

When you first see the trailer for Moneygrabber, you'd be forgiven for thinking it's merely a simulation of 21st century living. We're all trying to make as much money as possible and then show off said earnings with lots of shiny stuff. On a less cynical note, as a game Moneygrabber looks set to be another seriously addictive one-tap success. You tap to reach out and collect money as it descends down the screen, occasionally doing the same for power-ups. Once you've collected enough money, you can buy status symbols like watches, sunglasses, or even a car. They're all named after their real life counterparts but with the sillyness meter turned up to eleven - everyone wants a…

FastFishing favours speed over relaxation, is available for free on iOS from January 22nd

Fishing is relaxing, I hear. You cast your rod into picturesque waters, open a can of lager, and fall asleep until you feel a light tugging on the line. That's how fishing works, right? Though it may be rather therapeutic in real life, that doesn't sound particularly interesting for a game. That's probably what lead to Strange Flavour's decision to call its brand new iOS fishing game FastFishing. It plays almost exactly like regular fishing except it's much faster and each level is timed. There are 22 levels to cast your reel into and six different areas, ranging from stormy ocean waters to sunny idyllic islands. You can also unlock a variety of new equipment that can be used…
