Jet Set Radio grinds onto the App Store

Of all the Dreamcast era classics that Sega produced - and believe me, there are many - Jet Set Radio stands out as jewel in the crown. Its mix of breakneck speed, gorgeous cel-shaded graphics, pumping soundtrack, and sub cultural cool made it one of the finest games of its generation. And now it's back on iOS. For just $4.99 you can carry a faithful recreation of the rollerblading phenomenon around with you in your pocket, sating whatever street art lusts you get in a legal and incredibly fun manner. Jet Set Radio is available from the App Store now, and it's compatible with anything from the 3GS up. You should go download it now, or maybe wait for our review. Your call.…

Heroes of Order & Chaos delayed for Android

Heroes of Order & Chaos delayed for Android

We weren't that enamoured with Gameloft's MOBA Heroes of Order & Chaos. It had some nice ideas, but they got a bit lost under connectivity issues, which just isn't good enough for an online only game. However, Android gamers haven't even had a chance to find out about the stability issues, because despite Gameloft promising a simultaneous release, the game is still conspicuous in its absence from the Google Play Store. This is because Gameloft is tinkering with some server issues they've discovered with the Android version. So hopefully Android players should have a far more stable experience when it does release than iOS players have been suffering. So if you're waiting with baited b…

Take Minecraft into the real world

If you've ever slaved over an impressive creation in Minecraft, then you know how satisfying it is to stand back and marvel at your work.

Galaxy On Fire 2 free on the App Store

It's fair to say that none of us are ever going to feel the real thrill of a dogfight in space, cursed as we are to be born in a time where spaceships spend most of their time on the ground and are rarely equipped with lasers. Luckily, right now the really rather brilliant Galaxy on Fire 2 is available from the App Store for free, meaning we can live out our space fighting dreams without the danger of being sucked out in an endless vacuum. We awarded the game 5/5 when we reviewed it, and updates since then have only added to our admiration of the space faring saga. It's full of action, intrigue, and there's enough content to keep you playing for hours. It's only the standard version of…

Unknown Orbit Spiraling in Early December

Releasing on December 4th for the price of $0.99, Unknown Orbit strikes me as a relaxing take on a three dimensional Tiny Wings.

Yingpei Games releases more details about Mercenary Ops

Yingpei Games, formerly known as Epic China, has release some more details about their upcoming Unreal powered FPS Mercenary Ops. The game, which looks to borrow more than a little from Resident Evil 4, offers 8 single player levels and 3 giant boss fights to blast your way through using innovative single finger controls. As you can see from the screenshots, Mercenary Ops is certainly looking impressive, and promises plenty of unholy beasts for you to blast into pieces. The game should be out sometime in the next month, meaning we might get to kill some zombies while enjoying Christmas dinner.

Soul Calibur style free to play slasher Blade Lords has gone into beta in Canada and Singapore, which usually means that a worldwide iOS release isn't too far behind.
