QI's top iPhone Games for February 2013

Another month has passed us by... the shortest month. February certainly had its interesting share of releases so it's time to check out what our sister site the Quality Index had to say about the top rated games.   1. Word Up Dog2. Year Walk3. Rock Blocker4. Stardust Hero5. Cordy 26. Spunk and Moxie7. Pixel People8. Feast or Famine9. Puzzle Restorer10. Syder Arcade HD   It's interesting to see that Year Walk didn't top the charts. It's also not hard to see why Cordy 2, Pixel People, and Puzzle Restorer made the list. I haven't had a look at the makings of Appspy's Top 3 yet, but I imagine you will see at least one of…


Fearless Wheels

Fearless Wheels

Fearless Wheels arrives March 12th. It's a motorcross game that reminds me more than a little of Excitebike, and that is definitely a good thing. It looks to play with speed as well as positioning on obstacles, and has some nice visuals to go along with it. Have a look at the trailer. We'll certainly be keeping an eye on this one.…

Sonic Dash dashing onto iOS

It's fair to say that Sonic's modern adventures haven't been up to the same standards as his classic escapades. Well, Sega are looking to change that with Sonic Dash, a new endless runner featuring everyone's favourite anthropomorphic hedgehog. The game is being developed by Hardlight Studios, the team behind Sonic Jump which is one of the better recent games to bear the blue speedster's moniker. We gave it a 4 in our review which you can read by clicking here. Details are a little thin on the ground at the moment. We know it'll be an endless runner, we know at least some of it's going to be set in the Seaside Hill Zone, and we know that you'll be playing as Sonic. There's some mention of…

Flee from angels in Shadow Escaper

If you like your endless runners dressed up in a slick anime jacket with the pedigree of a triple-A console developer behind them, then Shadow Escaper is going to tick all of your boxes. Developed by cyber2connect, the company behind the recent Xbox 360 and PS3 action adventure game Asura's Wrath, Shadow Escaper is an endless runner in the third person, Temple Run vein, that sees your super cute Anime character sprinting down a never-ending track. You're being chased by angels who want to drag you back to a prison you've managed to escape from. The twist is all the energy you collect during the day can be turned against your pursuers at night, shifting the balance of power. With simple co…


Super Stickman Golf 2 Trailer Released

Super Stickman Golf 2 Trailer Released

Everyone's favourite visually simplistic puzzle golf game has a sequel coming out this month. It looks to deliver more of the same action fans are used to, and I must say that the asynchronous multiplayer function, to have everyone playing the same level flying around as you're considering your shot makes for a mayhem induced time... in a good way. Look for our review when this one finally hits (as I know Andrew loved the original).…

Danmaku Unlimited 2 out now

Fans of weaving a small spaceship through a hail of bullets rejoice! Danmaku Unlimited 2 has exploded onto the App Store, bringing with it enough neon hued bullet hell mayhem to keep you entertained for hours. The game casts you as a single spaceship battling against thousands. Luckily you've got a series of ridiculously powerful weapons at your disposal, and the bad guys always blast out bullets with small enough gaps between them for you to dodge through. There are two different modes to play through, and five stages, each with four difficulty settings. It's a tough old game, that's for sure, but it's also gorgeous, and addictive in that old fashioned arcade way that people love so much.…

Dream Tim

No, that's not a typo, it's the name of a new runner game coming out to the App Store on March 6th. This one boasts story progression through mission completion, interesting power-ups in the form of potions, and a swipe mechanic to destroy enemies as you're running along. Take a look at the trailer.…


Cognition: Episode One hits the App Store

Cognition: Episode One hits the App Store

The iPad is slowly becoming a second home for the point and click adventure, a point hammered home with the release of Phoenix Online Studios's Cognition: Episode One. The game casts you as Erica Reed, an FBI agent who has the power of post-cognition. She can pick up objects and see what happened to them in their past. Now she's on the trail of four killers, and one of them knows about her power. Cue lots of object finding, mysterious puzzle solving, and some gorgeous looking graphics. If you're a fan of the adventure genre, then you're likely to find a whole lot here to get your pointing and clicking teeth into. Put together by something of an adventure game dream team, Cognition: Episod…


The Other Brothers

The Other Brothers

The Other Brothers is a platformer that was embroiled in a bit of legal trouble last year, and it missed its 2012 release date. Well it looks like the project is alive and well, and is slated for a March release. Visually, it uses a similar art style to Superbrothers Sword & Sworcery EP, and looks to provide some unique platforming experience. Have a look at the trailer.…

Gemini Rue due out for iOS this Spring

I only discovered developer Wadjet Eye Games last year, and through 2012, i played through Gemini Rue and their Blackwell series (and I have plans to play Resonance soon). They make fantastic adventure games, and now Gemini Rue is being ported to iOS. Here's the original trailer of the game. Gemini Rue is a fantastic sci-fi tale set in a hostile and corrupt galaxy. Adventure game fans should really enjoy this one, and we'll let you know when it's released.…


Gemini Rue coming to iOS devices

Gemini Rue coming to iOS devices

If you like your point and click adventures gritty, old skool, and set in the reasonably distant but still recognisable future, then Wadjet Eye Games has a special treat in store for you in the shape of Joshua Nuernberger's Gemini Rue. First released in 2011 on PC, the game is set to make its way to the App Store in the next couple of months, bringing with it a graphical adventure that owes its style to the few years in the late eighties and early nineties when pointing and clicking was king. There's scant information on the iOS release just yet, with Wadjet Eye only saying that the game will have a UI that fits more comfortably onto touch screen devices. Which is good, because we didn't w…

Power Tower mixes Poker with Match 3

The trailer of this game asks if you've ever dreamed of mixing poker with a match-3 game. There has to be someone out there who has right? Well they're going to be really happy with the release of Poker Tower this Thursday on the App Store. Not only is it an interesting idea, trying to match poker hands in this fashion, but the low-fi graphics make it look like it's either on the original GameBoy or one of those portable LCD single game systems. Have a look at the trailer.…

Journey to Hell gets a release date and a trailer

The game formerly known as Project Holy Shield, Journey to Hell, has received a new trailer ahead of its imminent launch. And we have to say it's looking like a pretty interesting, gory, third person shooter. You play as one of two members of Project Holy Shield, Gabriel and Rachel, and it's up to you to kill as many terrifying demons as you can. You'll have plenty of weapons to choose, from twin pistols to flame throwers and machine guns. There are 7 levels to fight your way through, and a dynamic “real time render” audio engine to scare the pants off you. The game looks as grim and gritty as you'd expect, and is set to hit the App Store on the 7th of March, or a week on Thurs…


Purple Cape Launching Soon

Purple Cape Launching Soon

Josh Presseisen of Crescent Moon Games has let drop on his Twitter feed that Purple Cape by Last Moon Games will be launching in 'a few days'. We might take that as a release this Thursday the 28th, but until we have something more official, check out the trailer to this intriguing platformer. While I may have reservations about Platformers with 'physics' like the one demonstrated in the video (that is to say, Little Big Planet-esque), I can't help but be intrigued by the variety of power-ups, stage designs, and the way previously encountered obstacles are given novel twists. Consider us on the job when it comes to reviewing Purple Cape after it drops on the App Store!…


Ultima Forever Teaser Trailer

Ultima Forever Teaser Trailer

I am torn on this one. The Ultima franchise is responsible for so much in the Western RPG genre, and captivated the imaginations of innumerable gamers growing up in the 80s and 90s. Sadly like most franchises, a couple less than stellar entries made the continuation of the series less profitable and it quietly left in the night (if you don't count the MMO which pretty much was the blueprint for that genre as well). Well now slated for a Quarter Two release this year is Ultima Forever. Here's a teaser trailer. On one hand, Mythic is a studio with a great track record, and the game has a classic Western RPG look to it. On the other hand, EA's business practises have been less than stel…
