Rollercoaster Creation Due Before the end of the Year

The success of the Rollercoaster Tycoon franchise on PC shows that people love the idea of building their own rollercoasters. Now Frontier Developments, the minds behind the Lost Winds games are releasing Coaster Crazy sometime before the end of the year. Here's the trailer. It looks like it could be a lot of fun. We'll let you know when we get a definite release date.…

Capcom unleashes Street Fighter X Tekken onto the App Store

Capcom has finally released the iOS version of their console smash hit, Street Fighter X Tekken. It brings with it Retina support, and a robust online mode that fighter fans are going to love. Built from the ground up as a touch screen experience, the game features a roster of ten legendary characters from the Street Fighter and Tekken series, and lets you take part in furious two on two tag team battles. We've embedded a slightly mental Japanese launch trailer below so you can get a decent idea of what the game's all about, but we'd suggest you pick it up sharpish, as the game's on sale for just $2.99/£1.99 for a limited time only.…

Play the first level of Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land for free

Play the first level of Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land for free

If you're interested in Red Wasp Design's ghoulish RTS Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land, which sees you battling against nightmarish forces in an alternate World War 1, you can now grab a free trial of the tutorial and the first level for nothing at all. Since we reviewed the game at the start of the year, there've been a few tweaks to the gameplay, and plenty of new content packs that add even more gloopy violence to the tale of soldiers and investigators attempting to uncover an evil conspiracy at the heart of the Great War. More interestingly, if you're still not convinced after playing the first level, you can pay a little extra to buy the next one, and have a bash through that while…


Sword Of Fargoal 2 - Kickstarter Underway

Sword Of Fargoal 2 - Kickstarter Underway

Sword of Fargoal is not only a retro-classic, but a hit on the App Store thanks to a lovely make-over that appealed to nostalgic retro-gamers and newcomers alike. Jeff McCloud is keen to capitolize on the game's success by taking the concept even further by packing in 'more' than ever before: "...more spells. More monsters. More traps. Better graphics. More music. Animation. New characters types. New quests. A new dungeon-generation system, and much more." To ensure the game is as jam-packed full of features as possible, Fargoal has taken to Kickstarter to fund the remaining '20%' that hopes to add more animations, music, procedural map generation, 'action cards' to re-watch moments fro…


Verticus - From The Mind Of Stan Lee

Verticus - From The Mind Of Stan Lee

I'm not saying the Stan Lee is an automatic 'win' when it comes to new concepts, but it's hard to fault the man who has fought so passionately for the nerdy pasttime of reading comics. Verticus places players in control of a 'jump suit' falling towards the center of the Earth and dispatching 'Obliterators' on the way down. In a way the game comes off as a third-person rail-shooter and frankly the more of those we can get on to the App Store the better, especially when it looks this good. Controlled Chaos Media have teased the gameplay via their YouTube Channel - see if it whets your whistle. Those keen to try out the game for themselves will have to wait, but not for too long as…


Bad Piggies - Build'em-up Puzzling Fun

Bad Piggies - Build'em-up Puzzling Fun

We may have already covered the teaser unleashed upon us by Rovio, but one thing we weren't ready to do was put our foot down on how we feel about their brand-new franchise. Thankfully Yahoo obtained an exclusive video peek at the gameplay we can expect out of Bad Piggies... and it looks great. Much like Amazing Alex the game has a creative spin to its physics puzzling. Personally I'm excited to see just how much freedom we're given in creating and conrolling the contraptions made to ferry the pigs. Check out the video for yourself: The game is set for a 27th September launch date - mark it down and keep an eye on our site for our review! [Yahoo - Bad Piggies]…


Friday News Wrap-Up 14 September 2012

Friday News Wrap-Up 14 September 2012

Has the month just come to a halt now that the iPhone 5 has been announced? It feels that way to me... or maybe I’m crazy. Either way lets scrape up what news we can for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 14th of September, 2012. Payback 2 - Long-awaited sequel in developmentThose who happen to be long-time iOS gamers may remember the GTA-like title Payback from the dark-old ages of iPhone gaming. Rendered in software mode rather than hardware, it was a testament to the developer’s dedication, especially as it seemed to start out as an Amiga project. Payback 2 takes another swing at the free-exploring GTA formula, albeit with its own twist of allowing the player to custom…

Steel Yourself for the Release of Bank Rush Next Week

Yes it's another game where you see how far you can get before a grisly fate, but there's something about the art style and sense of humour evident in the trailer that cracked through our hard exterior here at Appspy. Bank Rush is due out in the app store next week.…

Run and Gun Zombies with Apocolypse Max

Due out in the App Store this week, Apocolypse Max: Better dead than undead is a run and gun platformer that visually reminds me a lot of the Metal Slug games (only with more zombies). The music in the trailer is a little much, but you do get a good sense of the platforming action available to you.…

QI's top 10 iPhone Games for August 2012

It's that time of the month again. Quality Index has released their Top 10 iPhone games for August, and we are here to relay that information to you, our dear readers. Let's see what made the cut... 1.  Blast-A-Way 9.22. Ticket to Ride Europe Pocket 9.23. Mikey Shorts 9.04. Monster Cube 9.05. Keri Racing 8.96.  McPixel 8.97.  Lost Cities 8.88. Café International 8.89. Horn 8.710. Organ Trail: Director's Cut 8.7 It's interesting to see how their list stands up our own top 3. For instance, our editor's pick Horn hit their number nine spot, but our other two picks didn't make the list. It might show a disconnect between mass appeal and niche gaming as Bastion and The Wor…

iPhone 5 'Leaked' Advert (Rumor)

We're just shy of Apple's full announcement of the iPhone 5 and it seems a leak has sprung... not that we're calling this video legitimate, but it walks the walk, so we're not complaining! The fingerprint scanner has me kind of excited, so it's fingers-crossed that we see this hit the final version.…

You'll get a chance to find out for yourself later this week when it's released.…
