Official trailer for Monster Adventures

Official trailer for Monster Adventures

Forsaken Media (creators of Block Fortress and Heroes and Castles) announced their new game Monster Adventures earlier in the year, and have released a trailer. Here it is! It looks like what would happen if you actually controlled Pokemon in an action RPG setting. Apparently the dungeons are procedurally generated, so there should be a focus on exploration and loot acquisition. The game should release sometime in the next couple of months, so definitely keep on the lookout.…

Two upcoming games from Chillingo

Two upcoming games from Chillingo

On Monday we showed you a preview video of Bloodstrike, which is one of three games Chillingo were showing off at Gamescom last week. Here we have trailers for the other two. The first is a game called Find the Line in which you arrange lines to create an image. It reminds me of Blueprint 3D (which was one of my favourite games of 2011), so I am looking forward to taking it for a spin and seeing if the gameplay is similar. The second game is Feed Me Oil 2, the sequel to the popular physics puzzler from a couple years ago (our review was very positive). It looks to have gotten a visual overhaul, while maintaining the same addictive fluid based gameplay. Both gam…

I Am Level combines pinball and platforming

While the rudimentary graphics may not be much to look at in this trailer of the upcoming I Am Level, it's the concept that deserves attention. Combing the rebounds and flicks of pinball with single screen platforming level design intrigues me to no end. Throw in the cryptic suggestion in the trailer that the world you're inhabiting is somehow alive, and I think you have the makings of a game worth trying. Watch the trailer for more insight. The game is set to launch on September 6th, and will be initially be free (staying free depending on how many views this trailer gets apparently).…

Angry Birds Go! announcement announced

Not much is known about the upcoming Angry Birds themed kart racer titled Angry Birds Go! other than it is sponsered by Red Bull, and the following announcement of the coming gaming announcement is quite amusing. It'll be interesting to see if the concept is more kart racer, or more Angry Birds. Do you fling your kart to start the race? Of course all we can do is speculate till the actual game reveal. We'll let you know more as soon as we do.…

Trouserheart allows you to fight with your pants off

Bloodstrike - John Woo iOS action

Bloodstrike - John Woo iOS action

Another preview video to come out of Gamescom, courtesy of Appgefahren, is of a new John Woo come headed to the iOS platform sometime this year. It's an on-rails shooter developed by Moon Shark and published by Chillingo. The monochromatic art style punctuated by bursts of the colour red is quite striking, but I have to admit that the action looks kind of generic. Without a release date though, the final product could be a lot more exciting than what we see here. They're certainly headed in an interesting direction. We'll let you know when more news drops.…

Oceanhorn is looking pretty amazing

Oceanhorn is looking pretty amazing

One of the reveals at Gamescom was the debut trailer for upcoming iOS game Oceanhorn. It looks to be heavily inspired by the Zelda series, and its charming visuals and music by famed composers Nobuo Uematsu and Kenji Ito certainly help to raise excitement. Have a look at the trailer... Especially that last section is highly reminiscent of Zelda gameplay. The production is certainly up there, so as long as the controls are decent and it's got some great dungeon design, it's easy to see it being one of the heavy hitters in this coming final quarter. We'll let you know if anything new develops.…

Shadow Vamp's future looks bright

It's fantastic when the concept of a game alone is enough to get you excited. Within a few seconds of watching the trailer below for Shadow Vamp, and understanding how the world is rotated to provide cover for your UV challenged protagonist. Playing with light and shadow in this way alongside such a clever narrative context hopefully provides plenty of joy when the game is eventually released. Have a watch for yourselves. The game is apparently coming very soon so we'll be sure to keep an eye out for you.…

Anima - a unique multiplayer experience

Anima is due out on the App Store later this month, and aside from the interesting polygonal isometric style, the gameplay is worth mention. This little action game is actually a multiplayer experience in which two halves of the same person are competing to see who can collect the most energy in two minutes. With powerups and enemies in your path, it looks to provide quite the enjoyable experience. Have a watch of some of the beta footage. The game will cost $2.99.…

Warhammer 40k: Space Wolf Announced

Due to the success of Warhammer Quest, Games Workshop have sought out another studio (this time Herocraft) to create a game based on the popular 40k franchise. Space Wolf takes tactical strategy and combines it with a collectable card game as you upgrade your team, and build your decks over a campaign with branching story paths. The game is slated for release sometime next year. It'll be interesting to see how the collectible card aspect influences the 3d tactical gameplay and vice versa. We'll let you know information as it's released.…

Good news everyone! Baldur's Gate is back

Back in June, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition was removed from the App Store. The reason was contractual issues with the game's publisher, Atari. They've obviously reached a solution because the game is once again available for purchase. Not only that, but Beamdog have continued work on a massive patch for the game as well as the enhanced edition of Baldur's Gate 2. Check out our review. If you enjoy classic PC RPGs on the comfort of your iPad, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition will certainly scratch that itch. [App Store Link]…

Flashout 2 teaser trailer revealed

Slated for Quarter 4, this sequel to Flashout 3D looks like it's picking up exactly where the first game left off. Obviously taking a few cues from the Wipeout franchise, this futuristic iOS racer will feature improved visuals, a lengthy career mode, better handling, and multiplayer. Take a look for yourselves. Let's just hope that there's a choice of soundtrack. If the trailer is any indication, it is not going to appeal to everyone's taste.…
