FIST OF AWESOME gets a new trailer

Retro styled woodland creature brawler Fist of Awesome has received a new trailer that shows off the sort of bear punching action you can expect when the game arrives on the App Store in May. The game, which has been developed by Nicol Hunt, whose previous employers include Codemasters and Realtime Worlds, had a successful Kickstarter funding push last year, and is set to see the light of day in a couple of months. Thanks to the Kickstarter cash - the game earned over £11,000, more than double what was asked for - Hunt has been able to bring in more help to get the game finished, which is good news for anyone who's longing for an iPad or iPhone game where knocking out bears and deer…

Endgame: Syria Finally Approved for App Store... kind of

After three submission on the App Store, and being released already both on Android and PC, Endgame: Syria is finally available on iOS devices. The catch? They just had to remove all references to the country of Syria and the conflicting forces there-in.  Developer Tomas Rawlings of 'Game the News' explains the situation in this quote: "We've come to the end of three rejections and one appeal and the only way we've been able to get Endgame:Syria out on iOS was to remove all references to the real world and sadly that changes it from a 'newsgame' into just a 'game'. We've released this game version so at least players with Apple devices can get a feel for what we originally intend…

Double Fine Adventure gets a name

The experiment formerly known as Double Fine Adventure finally has a name and a synopsis. No longer do the millions of dollars Double Fine raised through KickStarter belong to an unnamed project, instead they're being used to fund the development of Broken Age. The game is set to tell the story of a young girl who's been chosen by her village as a sacrifice to a terrible monster, and a young boy who lives a solitary existence on a spaceship. Their paths entangle and entwine and, as you'd expect, adventure ensues. If you didn't put some money into the KickStarter campaign, you've still got a chance to become a backer of the game. Throwing cash at Double Fine seems to be the done thing nowad…

Yes, This Is XCOM: Enemy Unknown For iOS

This caught us completely by surprise, but then again with PAX East currently pumping out some great news for the gaming world in general, we probably should have guessed something of this magnitude was in the works. Firaxis have officially announced an adaption of XCOM: Enemy Unknown for the iOS platform, and while the graphical fidelity may be toned down, the gameplay is completely intact. Actually, 2K have released a titbit covering the details so hit the video for more info. Consider us ready and waiting for XCOM... I'll be playing on Iron Man mode... because I'm just too manly for the regular mode!…


PPSSPP - PSP Emulation for Jailbroken Phones

PPSSPP - PSP Emulation for Jailbroken Phones

We don't normally engage in discussions about jailbreaking iOS devices, but every now and then you can see the appeal in going down that somewhat gray pathway. One such benefit includes being able to reduce the amount of portable devices you take out with you by emulating them on your iPhone or iPad. The clever boffins over at PPSSPP are making large strides in emulating the PSP, with recent developments getting the JIT (Just In Time) rendering working (somewhat) stably, meaning you can play with near perfect framerates. Check it out in action: For those interested, the iOS version of PPSSPP is currently available via Cydia, so if you're already Jailbroken and want to take the plunge,…


Roadhouse brings Warhammer 40K to iOS

Roadhouse brings Warhammer 40K to iOS

If you're the sort who likes to spend a good chunk of your time rolling dice and having pretend wars with your friends then this bit of business-y news is probably going to be quite interesting for you. Roadhouse Interactive has announced that it's secured a deal with Games Workshop to produce a smartphone and tablet game set in the Warhammer 40K universe. It's not going to be the grand strategy title you might expect though. Instead it'll be a side-scrolling action adventure that casts you as a lone Space Marine battling against a never-ending horde of Orks. Sounds to us like a twist on the endless runner with some massive weapons and splashes of gore thrown in. Think the recent He-man g…

New Breach and Clear screens

Some new screen shots have emerged for Breach and Clear, the iOS and Android game currently being developed by Mighty Rabbit Studios, the people behind the pretty impressive Saturday Morning RPG series, with some help from former Infinity Ward man Robert Bowling. As you can see we've embedded a couple of images in the story and, to be honest, they look pretty bland. It's a top down, tactical shooter with a reasonably impressive level of detail but an awful lot of brown and dull green thrown in too. Of course, the game will probably look much more interesting when it's moving, but right now colour me underwhelmed. There's no set release date for Breach and Clear, but you can expect it…

Dropchord Teaser Trailer

So Doublefine, the makers of games such as Psychonauts and Brutal Legend have an iOS game on the way. It's called Dropchord. All we know about it is that it's a rhythm game, and a teaser trailer was just released. And here it is! The trailer just confuses me further honestly, but Doublefine do have a good track record for unique games so we'll have to wait and see when more information is released.…

FFV heading to the App Store

It looks like Square Enix is continuing its retro assault on tablet and smartphone gaming with the news that Final Fantasy V is set for release on iOS devices. The news was broken over at Japanese site FF Reunion, which showed scans from a Japanese gaming mag featuring an advert for the game. The iOS release is set to be based on the GBA version of FFV, and will feature updated 2D graphics. First release in 1992 for the SNES, the game tells the story of a group of adventurers who are trying to stop a demon from being released from a sealed realm. There's some amnesia, turn based battling, and silly names thrown in for good measure too. Plus you can customise your characters thanks to an in…

Ryan Seacrest announces Draw Something 2

Zynga and OMGPop have announced that Draw Something 2, the sequel to the smash hit game everyone stopped playing about a year ago, will be released in the not too distant future. And for some reason they announced it via Ryan Seacrest. Seacrest took to twitter to post a picture he'd created using the new app, and shortly afterwards OMGPop CEO Dan Porter replied to that tweet, thanking Seacrest and confirming that the new game is on the way. So far there are no details save what was included in those brief missives. Although according to Porter Draw Something 2 will feature new ways to “draw and connect”. Maybe you can use your elbows to doodle this time. The original Draw Some…

Exclusive Screenshots of ScooterBoy from Modka Games

Industry veteran Chris Blackbourn has branched out from his star-studded career of working with major developers and has teamed up with artist Christian Bravery to form the Indie studio Modka Games. First off the block is an endless runner style title called 'ScooterBoy' where the player needs to swipe to go faster. So far the game is looking pretty sharp and with any luck we'll pick up some more footage of the game after they've demonstrated the game at GDC. For now check out some exclusive screenshots and a teaser demonstrating some of the artwork in motion via background parallaxing. Via Modka Games and Modka Games Facebook Page…


Mighty Dungeons iOS Port

Mighty Dungeons iOS Port

When viewing the trailer of Mighty Dungeons, it starts off looking like a generic iOS RPG, the kind we've seen a hundred times before... but then as you start to watch the gameplay, nostalgia struck me. The way the map is laid out, and the way you travel through it reminds me of days spent playing the board game Hero Quest. This alone makes the game worth a play for me, and it should scratch that dungeon crawler itch for other RPG fans as well. The Android version is currently out, and the iOS version should be released soon, but no definitive date as of yet.…

Chopper Mike Releasing this Thursday

Former SEGA Employee who goes by VAMflax is releasing his own game on the iOS this Thursday called Chopper Mike. It's a gem collecting helipcopter obstacle course that looks kind of banal in the trailer until the red sections kick in about halfway through... As long as the controls are tight enough to allow for the manoevering shown in the trailer, this should be quite enjoyable as you weave through the pillars in the shortest time possible.…
