Perfection calmly making its way to the App Store

Sometimes you don't want to play an angry game about murdering people or aliens, sometimes you just want to cut up shapes until they look like other shapes. And that's precisely what Perfection allows you to do. From the developer of Sling It!, the game is a pleasingly simple experience that sees you drawing lines through different irregular shapes to make another irregular shapes. It boasts that it has infinite variations of puzzles too, which is quite a lot of puzzles. With lots of soothing, endlessly forgiving gameplay to engage with, and a system that means you never have to go back to a puzzle once you've completed it, there's plenty here for the casual gamer to get their teeth into,…


Frozen Synapse headed to iPad

Frozen Synapse headed to iPad

Frozen Synapse is one of the more innovative turn based strategy titles to come along in recent years. It's a good example of the player dictating their own level of involvement. You have a collection of units that you can assign a string of iterative orders to, and you can test out how these orders will play before confirming. Even more down the rabbit hole, you can assign the visable enemy units orders based on how you think they might react to your movements, or what your foe might be doing on their turn. The level of involvement is insane, is wrapped up in a really cool aesthetic. It will be available on iPad on May 16th. It will be interesting to see if the game loses anything in its t…

Ninja Striker - Striking Ninja Action?

It's a pixel platformer with ninjas on the iPhone. Most would be saying to themselves, "Ho hum, like we haven't seen that a thousand times before". I dunno, have a look at the trailer. The numbers that pop out of enemies are kind of amusing, and if the travelling around is as fluid as it looks, this could be a fun time. The game is due out on May 2nd.…

For those who like Skipping Stones

Skim it! releases on the 2nd of May. It's the same type of game as Paper Toss or Bottle Cap Blitz in that you're using a simple action to gain a high score. As one who never quite got the hang of skipping stones as a child, it intrigues me alone on that factor. Have a look at the trailer.…


Dark Avenger gets a dark trailer

Dark Avenger gets a dark trailer

Do you want to be a dark avenger? Do you even know what a dark avenger is? Well, by the looks of the first trailer for Gamevil and Boolean Games's upcoming iOS game, it involves a massive amount of murder, flashing numbers, and picking stuff up. The game appears to be a pretty standard dungeon crawling hack and slasher with expansive character customisation options, lots of loot to find, and screen-fulls of enemies to reduce to quivering wrecks with your sword swinging antics. We don't have any word yet on when the game's coming out, but we wouldn't be surprised to see it landing on the App Store in the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, check out the trailer we've embedded for your pe…

Rift Hunter

Rift Hunter boasts the combination of classic beat 'em ups like Golden Axe and Final Fight with MMO style community mechanics. If you watch the trailer, you'll also see that it has solid visual presence, a rocking soundtracks, and lots of numbers as you attack your foes (if that kind of this excites you). With multiple classes (each with their own skill tree), and plenty of level content, this could be a fun brawler as long as the controls hold up. Have a look at the trailer. The game is due out some time in May and will be released with a free price tag.…


Puzzle games go off without a Hitch

Puzzle games go off without a Hitch

Ok, so that one was stretching a little. Hitch is a really interesting puzzle game that kind of plays like a large scale rubix cube creating pathways. Have a look at the trailer to see what i mean. As of now, the game is only available on Android, but the developer has assured me he's working on an iOS version that should be released in May, so keep on the lookout!…

Appspy Transition Updated!

Hey hey all! Well a work week has passed since I wrote about Appspy getting all shook up like Elvis. For those of you who were missing the video content, first... shame on you for not making do with my amazing reviews! Now that I've got all the jokes out of my system, let me fill you in on what's going on. Andrew has taken a new position at a new company. We wish him the best, and will miss the work he put into helping make Appspy much bigger than it was when I was editor. In the past week, our parent company Steel Media has found us a new video creator in James, who will be commencing new video content as of next week. I'd like you all to make him feel welcome. So that's pretty much it. I…

If you like superheroes, building things, smashing things, and large winged rodents, then you're in for a treat today, because Lego Batman: DC Superheroes has made its way onto the App Store, bringing with it all of those things and more.

Fancy slaughtering some zombie mutants?

House of the Dead: Overkill took the lightgun franchise into some brilliant new territory, infusing it with a 70's exploitation vibe and a lot more blood and gore. It's big, silly, and now there's a new version on iOS. Called The Lost Reels, the game features the original cast of the Wii hit, and throws them into three stages of gory b-movie style violence. Shoot mutants, collect cash, and upgrade your weapons to become the best zombie slaughterer on the planet. If you like your shooters grim and blood splattered, but not afraid to have a cheeky wink to the camera, then House of the Dead: Overkill The Lost Reels is likely to be right up your alley. Throw in a survival mode and three differ…

Haunted Hollow creeps onto the App Store

There might be quite a buzz around the iPad version of XCOM, but Fireaxis is easing itself into the iOS game gradually and first on their list is the tactical spook story Haunted Hollow, which is available right now on the App Store. It's a game about marshalling your minions into effective fighting groups, storming towns to capture the townsfolk, and generally being as frightening as you can. There are Fireaxis's strategy finger prints all over the game – base building, different units, resource gathering – but it's all presented in a twee cartoon style. You'll mainly be fighting against friends and enemies in the multiplayer mode, but there's a solid single player campaign he…
