The 10th of May is Carmageddon Day

Everyone's favourite over the top violent racing game is celebrating its release on the 10th of May. How is it celebrating you ask? By having 24 hours as a free app. That's right, if you don't own Carmageddon on iOS, on the 10th of May it will be free. How can you pass up such an offer? Well, if you're still on the fence about the game, check out our review from last year, and that should be enough to lean you in either direction. What other game has a 'cunning stunt bonus'?…

Augmented Reality Jenga

JengAR got release today on the App Store. Are you a fan of toppling tower board game Jenga? Do you own an iPad*? Do you find augmented reality interesting? If you answered "yes" to all those questions, JengAR might interest you. Have a look at the trailer! *The game is available for iPhone as well, but it looks to be much more interesting with the added screen space the iPad provides. And that name is just fun to say. Jengar! [App Store Link]…

Future Building in 2020: My Country - Available Now on the Appstore

Just hitting the App Store yesterday is 2020: My Country, a Simcity-esque game where you need to look after the denizens of the future, protecting them from hazards such as meteor showers and dinosaur. As a bonus, all the character faces are kind of unsettling and creepy looking, at least in my opinion. Have a look at the trailer, and if you like what you see, pick it up on the App Store.

Bastion on sale on the App Store

If you haven't played Supergiant Games's breathtakingly good looking RPG Bastion yet then you're running out of excuses because for a limited time it's available on the App Store for the ridiculously cheap price of 99c. In our 5/5 review we described the game as “a wonderful adaption of an outstanding action title and one that feels at home on the App Store thanks to its control modifications”, heaping praise on its stunning visuals and clever controls. There's hours of game to sink your teeth into here, with ten upgradeable weapons to master, and more than forty gorgeous hand drawn environments for you to explore. So if you're after a challenging adventure that'll keep you pla…

'Dig!' will be dug this Thursday

Published by Crescent Moon Games and developed Tasty Poison Games, Dig! looks to mix the classic gameplay of Qix with zombies and monsters. You are a man with a shovel, and it is your duty to uncover the treasures underground while staying away from all the marauding nasties. Have a look at the trailer! The game launches at $2.99 and will appear this Thursday, May 9th.…


Trailer for Dracula 4: The Shadow of the Dragon

Trailer for Dracula 4: The Shadow of the Dragon

Fans of cheesy adventure games on their iOS devices will be happy to hear that a teaser trailer has dropped for Dracula 4, the latest installment in the Dracula series by Microids. We reviewed the first game a long long time ago (back when I was still creating the video content), and I imagine that the pros and cons of that game are mostly relevant for this newest release. One thing is certain... we travel to Budapest! The game is set to come out sometime during the summer this year (that's summer for the northern hemisphere, so within the next couple of months)!…


Lego Star Wars The Yoda Chronicles now on the App Store

Lego Star Wars The Yoda Chronicles now on the App Store

Like a green lightsaber unexpectedly flaring to life, Lego Star Wars The Yoda Chronicles has just appeared on the App Store. It seems the folks at Lego (or, more specifically, developer 4T2 Multimedia) wanted to surprise us with their latest entry in the long-running Lego franchise. And, as Yoda might say, very surprised, we were. At its core, this is a Lego game through and through. This means extensive platforming sections, puzzles, and a healthy dose of combat. Naturally, you can play as everyone's favourite green Jedi Master, calling on his force powers and lightsaber skills when required. Alternatively, if you've been bewitched by the power of the Dark Side, then you can assume the…

Impossible Road? I'll Take that Challenge!

Coming May 9th is Impossible Road. How long can you last on this path of bends, curves, and bumps, designed to throw you off? These kinds of minimalist arcade games are a favourite of mine (for example, Boost 3D), so as long as the controls are tight, I anticipate the release. Have a look at the trailer in the meantime!…


Mosaique Ingrains itself into the App Store Next Week

Mosaique Ingrains itself into the App Store Next Week

I used the word 'ingrains' because Mosaique is a game about sand. Get it? These low key puzzle experiences keep popping up on the App Store, and seeing they encourage brainpower plus relaxation, are a welcome addition. Have a look at the trailer and you'll see that Mosaique certainly falls under this category. We're assuming that the game is pronounced the same as 'mosaic', but we're just going off intuition for that one.…

Play feudal RTS Autumn Dynasty for free with new 'lite' app

A 'lite' version of Touch Dimension's arty RTS Autumn Dynasty is now available for free on the App Store. The developer's quirky take on the strategy genre first made waves back in 2009 when it reached the finals of the IGF China Student competition. Thanks to the game's unique combination of classic large-scale battles, gorgeous Okami-esque visuals, and unusual brush-based interface, it proceed to capture the attention of iOS strategy fans everywhere. Now, you can try out the opening two stages of Autumn Dynasty without spending a penny, simply by downloading the Autumn Dynasty Lite app. In addition to conquering these single-player levels, you'll also get to try out the game's Bluetoot…

Muck Chuck in 'Chuck the Muck' - Coming May 9th

From the dev team behind Critter Escape comes Chuck the Muck, a physics puzzle game arriving on iOS next week. It's funny that since everyone has been making endless runners, the physics puzzle popularity that Angry Birds ushered in has died down, but they're still being made, and especially when they look to create their own spin on things as you'll see in this trailer, are most welcome. And with a title like that, your interest has to at least just a little bit piqued.…


Is this the end for Peter Molyneux's Curiosity?

Is this the end for Peter Molyneux's Curiosity?

After several months and millions of tapped cubelets, it looks like Peter Molyneux's enigmatic experimental app 'Curiosity - what's inside the cube' may be preparing to reveal its big secret. You see, the Curiosity dev has just posted a video stating that there are only 50 layers of tiles remaining on the cube's surface. Clear these layers, and the cube will finally give up its mysterious (and allegedly "life-changingly amazing") contents to the player who plants the final tap. There's been much speculation surrounding the right-angled monolith and its concealed prize. Some, like AppSpy's own Harry Slater, have been speculating exhaustively since day one. Now, the answer is almost within…

Steve Jackson's Sorcery! out at midnight tonight

Inkle's digital reworking of Steve Jackson's Sorcery!, the classic Fighting Fantasy saga from the '80s, is due to hit the App Store at midnight tonight. If you've never encountered Jackson's work before, he is known for producing several popular RPG gamebooks. These interactive adventures required you to make destiny-altering decisions on a page-by-page basis, asking you to turn to a different page to discover each outcome. For this updated version of the Sorcery! gamebook, developer Inkle has taken full advantage of the modern tech at hand. As a result, this first chapter - subtitled The Shamuntanti Hills - features never-before-seen 3D maps, plus all new sword-duelling and spell-casting…

Star Wars pinball gets a price cut

If you like Star Wars and pinball, but you haven't bought Star Wars pinball from the App Store yet, then now's a pretty good time. That's because its price has been slashed to celebrate Star Wars day, which is May the 4th. Obviously. The game will now set you back just 99c, which is pretty cheap for a digital recreation of pinball covered in pictures of your favourite characters from the Star Wars films. Even if you don't like Star Wars, it's still a pretty good deal. You can also grab individual Star Wars themed tables as IAPs from Zen Pinball for just 99c. If it's Star Wars themed and somehow involves pinball you can bet it's probably cheap. You can grab the app for your iPhone or iPad…

Eclipse out on the App Store

Earlier in the year, I wrote up a news piece about Big Daddy Creations bringing the space sim board game Eclipse to iOS. Well for you hardcore board game junkies, it's been released on the iPad. Now the price tag is a bit hefty at almost eight dollars, but for how in depth the game looks, you'll definitely get your money's worth (and it's still a much cheaper alternative than buying the boxed copy). Have a look at the launch trailer, and follow the app store link below if you are so inclined. [App Store Link]…
