Penny Arcade 4 skipping iOS and Android release

Penny Arcade 4 skipping iOS and Android release

If you were a fan of playing Penny Arcade's On The Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3 on the go, then we've got some bad news for you. Unfortunately, due to poor sales, the 4th part of the story isn't going to be appearing on iOS or Android devices. Speaking on Twitter, Robert Boyd, one half of Zeboyd Games, the developers behind the series, revealed that "Our mobile games & ports haven't done so well so the new PA RPG will only be on PC & XBLIG. Apologies to fans of iOS/Mac/Android." Then followed it up by saying "We'd love to put our games on every platform available but we're a two-man operation and want to be able to keep making new games." It's a shame, because while the last…


Stratosphere - Competitive iPad Tower Defense

News By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 7 months ago

It may be the multiplayer component, it may be the minimalist look of the game... chances are it's the great pun for their title that got me interested. Using the larger play area of the iPad, players try to keep their opponent's armies at bay. As a TD game, it doesn't look like it does much new, but the local multiplayer aspect more than makes it worth a view of the trailer. It releases this Thursday.…


Table Top Racing out this Thursday

Table Top Racing out this Thursday

Watching this trailer, I get flashbacks to my youth and possibly too much time spent with Micro Machines 2: Turbo by Codemasters. Table Top Racing seems to capture a similar feel, but imbues it with a lot of the tropes of more modern kart racers. Not too surprising seeing that the designer was apparently one of the co-creators of the original Wipeout. Have a look at the trailer for yourselves, and if you like what you see, Thursday is not too far away at all.…


Glu releases Gun Bros 2 trailer

Glu releases Gun Bros 2 trailer

It's been more than two years since the first Gun Bros came out, which is a lifetime in the smartphone and tablet gaming world. Let's put it this way, when Gun Bros came out, Infinity Blade was still a month away and people were being charmed by how shiny their first generation iPad looked. Gun Bros 2 has actually been around for a couple of months now, albeit in beta form and only available from the Canadian App Store, but a trailer released by Glu today suggests that a global release isn't too far away. There's no gameplay footage to speak of, but according to the Canadian App Store you can expect vehicle rampages, plenty of guns, exotic locations, and plenty of evil scum bags to riddle…


Gameloft releases new Blitz Brigade trailer

Gameloft releases new Blitz Brigade trailer

There aren't that many multiplayer shooters for your iOS device, and those that there are often have a few problems that keep them from being as enjoyable as they should be. It looks like Gameloft is trying to fix that with Blitz Brigade. The game owes more than a little to Battlefield Heroes and Team Fortress 2, although if you're going to borrow ideas from cartoon style multiplayer blasters, you may as well choose two of the best. Set during an alternate World War 2, the game is all about picking a class and doing as much damage as you can to the opposing team. The classes you can play as all look pretty standard, from the muscular, heavy weapon toting brute to the lithe, sneaky sniper,…

Year Walk might come out in February

"Have you ever been lost in the forest, and you realise that you are walking in circles? That is a scary and confusing feeling. We have tried to capture that feeling in this game."  Year Walk by Simogo, the developer behind Beat Sneak Bandit, has been on our most wanted list ever since it was first announced. With its creepy, atmospheric trailers and mysterious teases, we could spend hours speculating about the game. Thankfully it looks like we're not going to have to do that for much longer, because over on the development blog, Simogo has suggested that the game could be out as soon as next month. Year Walk is still wrapped in a veil of secrecy though, with little information about…


Temple Run 2 jogs briskly onto Android

Temple Run 2 jogs briskly onto Android

Just over a week after iOS gamers got to grab the idol for the second time, players with Android devices can now try and outrun a vengeful monkey king in Imangi's Temple Run 2. You can check out our review of the iOS version by clicking here. Temple Run 2 doesn't add much to the 3D endless running template laid down by its predecessor, but it remains an entertaining sprint along a crumbly temple wall all the same, and even throws in hillocks, bends, zip wires, and mine carts to keep you on your toes. If you're looking for some fast, fun, twitchy running on your Android device, you could do a lot worse than heading over to the Google Play Store and grabbing this litle gem for free. Or maybe…


Black Shark HD - Helicopter Simulation

Black Shark HD - Helicopter Simulation

Simulation games are for a certain type of player. Now I'm the first to admit I am not that player, but I can understand the appeal of getting to realistically fly a commercial or military grade aircraft in the safety of your own home. Black Shark HD puts the player in the cockpit of a Russian Ka-50 Attack Helicopter and allows free-flight mode as well as combat missions. The developer has some experience creating simulation games with his previous release, Apache 3D Sim. Here's the trailer. Sadly if you like the look of what you see here, you'll have to wait. The game doesn't release until February 27th. It's something to look forward to at least.…


Redneck Revenge coming soon to iOS

Redneck Revenge coming soon to iOS

Are you sick of killing zombies on your iOS device yet? If not, Bulkypix has a new game coming out soon that's going to try and sate that violent, undead mulching lust once and for all. And throw some rednecks into the mix as well. Redneck Revenge: A Zombie Roadtrip is a cartoon adventure starring a bar owning redneck called Red who suddenly finds himself inundated by flesh hungry creatures of the night. There are 30 levels to shoot through, and plenty of zombies to turn into piles of guts. We've embedded a teaser trailer below, so you can get an idea of what to expect from the game when it hits the App Store in the not too distant future. In the meantime, you should probably get in some p…


Namco Bandai bringing Tekken card battler to iOS and the real world

Namco Bandai bringing Tekken card battler to iOS and the real world

Where Capcom has been brave and bold in bringing its fighting franchises to mobile devices, Namco has been a little less forthcoming, with a port of Dreamcast classic Soul Calibur being their only real foray into the world of pocket gaming. Well, all that is set to change with the release of Tekken Card Tournament, although if you were looking for the high octane thrills and spills of an intricately woven 3D combat system transposed perfectly onto your iPhone or iPad, you're probably going to be a bit disappointed. Instead you're getting a deck building, free to play card battler set in the Tekken universe. Rather than tapping out punches and kicks, you'll throw down digital cards in ord…

Mushroom Wars Heading to iPad this Week

Already a massive hit on the Playstation Network, Mushroom Wars, originally released on that platform in 2009 is heading for the iPad this week. It looks to bring accessible real time strategy to the tablet platform through a cute vaneer and gameplay featuring hundreds of little units that overwhelm the opposition. Here's a trailer. The game is released on January 24th.…

Super Hexagon arrives on Android

It's fair to say that we loved Super Hexagon. If you don't believe us, why not go read our review of Terry Kavanagh's mind warping, reaction testing abstraction of the platform game. When you've done that, come back here and we'll tell you the good news. Sorted? Good. Well, the news is good if you own an Android device, because Super Hexagon is now available from the Google Play Store. If that's enough to convince you to stop reading and go download, you can do that by clicking here. If you need a little more persuading, how about the fact that the Android version is currently on sale at a discount of 66%, which means you can pick it up for less than a dollar.  You'll need an Android…

Roar Rampage

Ok, see that image alongside this article? That alone sparked my interest in this game that will be released on the App Store February 7th. The start of the video is a bit ho-hum and made me think, "Oh, a Rampage clone?", but then this concept is taken and twisted into its own thing. Have a watch of the trailer and tell me that doesn't at least look fun for a play or two. I mean tell me you wouldn't want to grab an ICBM and whack a building to destruction with it... yeah, that's what I thought.…

Magic Pixel Games announces Stick To It

Magic Pixel Games has released an announcement trailer for their upcoming iOS puzzle platformer Stick To It, and it looks like it's going to be an intriguing mix of one finger gameplay and cartoon visuals. The team behind the game is made up of Boom Blox developers, which gives Stick To It a little more pedigree than your average iOS puzzler. There'll be 80 levels to work your way through, with more to come after launch in free updates. You'll be able to grab the game for nothing when it comes out, but only for the first 72 hours, after which it'll go back up to its full price of $1.99. Interestingly, Magic Pixel Games has also stated that the game will be free from microtransactions, whic…
