The Legend of Talisman

The Legend of Talisman

I know, i know... Match-3 game. Have a look at the trailer of this upcoming title though and I think you'll discover an interesting new twist on the genre. The game is set for release on April 12th…


New Breach and Clear screens

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

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.…


Plasma Sky hits the App Store

Plasma Sky hits the App Store

If you like your bullet hell shooters to be retro tinged, neon coloured, and full of explosive power ups, then today is your lucky day, because Plasma Sky has blasted its way on to the App Store and it's looking pretty sweet. With eighty levels to blast your way through, the game offers plenty of content, as well as some gorgeous graphics that ape the look of classics such as Geometry Wars. Throw in some huge bosses and a hardcore mode and you're left with a pretty impressive package. There are two control choices, either tilt or touch, and leaderboards to creep your way up in order to show your friends you're the king of bullets, hell, and shooting. Which is exactly the sort of thing we l…

Keep rolling, rolling, rolling, rolling

There have been a few games that look to take up the mantle of Marble Madness / Super Monkey Ball esque gameplay. With the tilt functionality on the iPhone, you think there'd be a lot more. Ah well, Mazement is releasing on April 4th and has you rolling around, navigating labyrinths, and freeing your brethren. Have a look at the trailer.…

Badlands gets a release date

Frogmind Games's gorgeous looking physics based sort-of-a-platformer Badlands has been given a release date and a brand new gameplay trailer. You can check out the trailer at the end of the story, and as for the release date you can expect the game at the start of next month. April the 4th to be precise, which just misses the projected release date we had of “March”, but only by four days, so we guess we can forgive Frogmind. Especially if Badlands plays half as good as it looks. Described by the dev as a side-scrolling action adventure, the game sees you leading a blob through a variety of traps and hazards. Multiplayer modes are included, which look like frantic races through…

Dice game set to get you in a Tizzy

PWN: Combat Hacking slices onto the App Store

PWN: Combat Hacking is a strategy game with a difference. Rather than battling it out over digitally realised terrain with little tanks and soldiers, you're fighting against firewalls and other security in an attempt to break into a secure server. Your weapons here are viruses and trojans, and the nodes you're trying to capture are actual nodes rather than places on a battlefield where terrifying monsters spawn. The whole game looks gorgeous, with a stylish cyberpunk aesthetic that should at the very least keep your eyes interested for a while. “I’ve always loved those ludicrously fake hacking scenes that you see in movies, and it seemed like the perfect premise for a video gam…

Unstoppabot launch trailer

SeeThrough Studios has released a launch trailer for their endless runner-puzzle game mash up Unstoppabot, which hit the App Store earlier in the week. The game mixes logic puzzles with an ever-running robot to create something a bit unique. As you can see in the video we've embedded below the game has a neat looking cartoon style, as well as a wicked sense of humour running throughout. Hoepfully it'll make a pleasant change from some of the more po-faced endless runners we've been confronted with recently. Unstoppabot is available now from the App Store for nothing at all and you can grab it by clicking here. Or if you'd prefer, stick around and watch the trailer below to get an idea of w…

Unmechanical hits the App Store on the 18th

Indie 2.5D side scrolling PC hit Unmechanical is making its way to iOS devices next Monday, the 18th of March, and bringing with it a strange story or organic and mechanical life, a plucky little robot, and an incredibly powerful tractor beam. First released in 2012 for the PC, the game went on to win the Best Game award at the Brazilian International Games Festival. “The feedback from fans and critics following the PC release has been great, and while it took some time, it feels awesome to finally have the iOS version finished. We’re more than happy to share our passion-project with iOS players!” said Marko Permanto, project lead for the Unmechanical team in a press rele…
