Square Enix set to drop their prices?

Square Enix set to drop their prices?

It looks like there might be some wriggle room in Square Enix's often derided pricing structure. The Japanese power house's head of mobile for Europe, Antony Douglas, had some interesting things to say on the subject at the recent Casual Connect conference in Kiev. “$20 for something you can play for 30 or 40 hours is still cheaper than what you can get on a handheld.  [Square Enix] Japan are trying that and seeing how it works, and it works very well in Japan." "It has been commented on quite a lot in Europe in the West, [and] they’re responding to it.  They’re seeing the feedback, and there will probably be changes in the way that it’s structured.”…

Dead Triggers gets new level for Halloween

Madfinger's violent zombie slaughtering FPS is set to receive a spooky update to celebrate that most terrifying of all commercialised holidays, Halloween. The new update, which is already available on the Google Play Store, adds a new graveyard level to the game, as well as plenty of pumpkin-headed undead for you to murder in various ways. There's a new weapon to aid you in your undead massacre as well, a crossbow that fires incendiary bolts that spread fire, death, and mayhem wherever they land. iOS owners should be getting the update pretty soon, and anyone with a Android device powerful enough to run the game should have it already. To whet your appetite in the meantime, here's a spook…

Halloween iOS Bonanza

It's the time of year where countries around the world get used to the aroma of pumpkin and spices in the air - not that I'm complaining personally because I love me some seasonal treaties, but it's nice to think we can enjoy more than just food and candy this year. As such I've collected news on a bunch of great seaonal themed updates and special deals that you can jump in on to provide you with a great distraction for the next couple weeks, or if you want to horde them, to survive the Thanksgiving season. Mikey Shorts Halloween - A Free Seasonal Taster Instead of simply changing the aesthetics of their smash hit game Mikey Shorts, Beaver Tap Games have opted to go one better, creating a…

Squids Wild West - Free For A Short Time!

We've got another great deal for you today and it could be ending any moment! Squids Wild West is the continuing saga of a group of sea-creatures out to save the world from the black goop turning everyone in to minless minions.

FAA's Free App of the Day – Monster Shooter: The Lost Levels

Today the FAA brings you a game I can personally recommend as it managed to suck a fair portion of my week away from me when it came out. "In this action-packed twin-stick shooter, you are tasked with shooting your way through 80 levels, 100 missions, and waves of monsters in order to save, well, a little kitten. It's hardly worth the effort, if truth be told. Thankfully, though, as the saviour of all things fluffy, you have a fully stocked armoury full of 12 upgradable weapons. So, at least you can have some fun along the way." Download it now and get the best free apps every day from the Free AppAlliance app.…

Fieldrunners 2 updated for Halloween

Subatomic Studios has updated the really rather brilliant Fieldrunners 2 just in time for Halloween, adding in a new Jack O'Lantern tower that spews out powerful gouts of fire. Called the BOOM-kin tower, the spooky new weapon in your arsenal isn't the only new addition to the game. There have been some quite extensive tweaks to the game too to increase loading time and optimise performance. As well as the behind the scenes stuff, the game now features iCloud saves, so you can play on one iOS device, and pick up where you left off on another, even crossing your saves between the iPad and IPhone versions. The updated version of the app should be in the App Store right about now, and if yo…

Heroes & Castles - Control Your Army From The Battlefield

While we wait for more news about Foursaken Media's upcoming release of N.Y. Zombies 2, the team is proud to show off another of their projects - Heroes & Castles. Players are placed right down on the battlefield, selecting from one of three heroes (Warrior, Paladin or Engineer), and directing their forces while fending off foes. In a way it reminds me of the Dynasty Warriors formula, albeit with more of a real-time strategy edge. Players may find themselve deep in battle with a horde of enemies where "you'll look to your right as 20 Peons hold the line against skeleton warriors... on your left 2 giants smash their clubs into a goblin horde, knocking them 20 feet back in all direction…

Gamelion releases League of Heroes

Gamelion, the developer behind Monster Shooter and Doodle Fit has released a new free-to-play hack and slasher called League of Heroes. Set in a rich fantasy universe populated with gorgeous, hand drawn 2D sprites, the game looks to riff on the likes of Zelda, giving you an isometric world to attack with your trusty weapon. The game offers enormous boss battles, huge hordes of enemies for you to slice and dice your way through, and a huge number of quests to sate the adventurer's urge in all of us. League of Heroes is available right now from the App Store for nothing at all, and we've embedded a trailer below so you can get a taste of the brightly coloured fantasy violence you're going…

FAA's Free App of the Day – Random Heroes

Sadly we just missed out on a deal for Super Crate Box, but for those after another solid platformer, check out the Free App Alliance's latest pick! "Random Heroes is another excellent platformer from Ravenous Games. That's the studio responsible for equally excellent League of Evil 1 and 2. Basically, you have to take control of one of 15 different heroes, and attempt to save the world across more than 30 levels. You have guns and other weapons to help you out, but don't expect a walk in the park - this is one tricky game."

Super Meat Boy iOS delayed

The iOS version of Team Meat's super difficult, super gory platformer Super Meat Boy has been delayed for a little while as the two man dev team focus on a different project. Speaking on their blog, the team said that while the game would see the light of day on iOS devices soon, new cat mutating title Mewgenics was going to be their focus for the time being. There's no word yet on whether Mewgenics will appear on iOS devices, but Team Meat moved to reassure fans of their hardcore platformer that Super Meat Boy would definitely rear its meaty head on iOS. "SMB fans need not worry, the new Super Meat Boy (SMB:TG) is still in dev, just on hold till we squeeze this little kitten out of our…

While a lot of games based on vertical movement have you jumping ever highwards, Freedom Fall has decided to travel in the other direction.

Borderlands set to make its iOS debut

According to a page from the digital strategy guide for Borderlands 2 dug up by IGN, It looks like 2K's post apocalyptic RPG/FPS hybrid is set to make its bow on mobile devices. Borderlands Legends takes place in the same rich universe as its console brethren, and features Roland, Lilith, Mordecai, and Brick - the stars of the original Borderlands - in a wave based battle built specifically for iOS devices. The game, which sees you leading your favourite character in a series of randomised missions, levelling them up and gaining powers as you do, is set to see the light of day sometime this month, although no firm release date has been given just yet. Still, it's good to see another pop…
