Reaction-testing endless runner Unpossible coming to the App Store on April 17th

Unpossible, a new Tron-styled auto runner from Acceleroto, will be dashing onto the App Store this Thursday. The game plays out on the back of a pipe. You have to dodge left and right past its various obstacles as you are propelled ever forward, testing both you reflexes and memory as you try and beat your previous best time.  Spinning around the pipe in first person looks like it will be a disorientating and dizzying experience, but the stylish world and fast twitch gameplay seen in the trailer have caught our interest. If you like your auto-runners bright and stylish, then keep your eyes peeled for Unpossible when it hits iPhone and iPad later this week.…

Harmonix announces music-powered auto-runner Record Run

Rock Band developer Harmonix has announced its new free-to-play runner, Record Run, is expected to hit iOS in May. Revealed at PAX East, Record Run appears at first glance to be a pretty standard runner. Where the game differs from other runners on the App Store is that you can import your own music to generate levels, with the song's beat dictating the pace. Once you've completed a level you can share your highscore with the world, and give other players the chance to purchase and download the song to challenge your leaderboard dominance. In his PAX East panel, Harmonix’s studio head Alex Rigopulos said that Record Run is just one of several “very different" mobile gam…

Endless-run-and-gunner John Mad Run is available for free on the App Store

Happymagenta’s new endless runner John Mad Run has just dashed onto iPhone and iPad. You take control of John as he runs for his life through a series of industrial levels. John is wanted dead, not alive, so you'll have to slice, shoot, and burn your attackers without remorse if you want to survive. As the trailer below shows, John Mad Run follows fairly a standard endless-runner formula. You must jump between three paths, avoiding or killing enemies as you see fit. Footsoldiers are occasionally accompanies by larger enemies such as tanks, so you'll need to rifle through your arsenal to find something sturdy enough to blow the tracks off a Panzer. If that sounds like your pa…

See exclusive footage of Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff

As you may have heard, Fox accidentally released Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff onto the App Store 48 hours early. Assuming it was a soft-launch rather than an accident, may people started posting videos of the game on YouTube, and streaming gameplay on Twitch. However, within hours of the app's appearance, reports appeared saying that FOX was flagging YouTube videos containing footage of the game. What's more, AppSpy community member HansKaosu had his Twitch account shut down altogether, apparantly as a result of streaming the game live. Given that the game had publicly appeared on the App Store, and that no-one did anything remotely illegal in downloading it, it seems a bit harsh that p…

Tiny Thief gets magical new Bewitched chapter in latest update

Cutesy point-and-click adventure game Tiny Thief has just received an update which gives you access to a brand new chapter. Titled Bewitched, Tiny Thief's new level sees the King kidnapped by the Wicked Witch. Taking control of the pint-sized pilferer, it is your task to rescue him from her evil clutches. You can only fight fire with fire, however, so this episode has the little tea-leaf turning to the dark arts in order to fight off the witch’s spells. We really enjoyed Tiny Thief’s mix of platform and adventure elements. Its charming art style and clever puzzles earned it a strong recommendation, despite its relatively ease and brevity of the six original adventur…
