Have a Blast... with Dragons!

News By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 8 months ago
Have a Blast... with Dragons!

Coming out this Thursday in the App Store in Dragon Blast. A pretty simple physics puzzler in the vein of games like Angry Birds. While it does look rather derivitive, the longer I watched the trailer, the more I found a certain charm in the level design that I think could be enjoyable. Have a look at the trailer for yourselves and see what I mean.…

Gameloft's Iron Man 3 - Releasing April 25th

Gameloft's Iron Man 3 - Releasing April 25th

It's easy to say we're liking the look of Gameloft's current titles. Old habits may die hard for a company like this, but we're willing to give praise where due - most recently with their release of Order & Chaos: Duels. Now we find ourselves in a similar situation with their upcoming movie tie-in for Iron Man 3; it's looking gorgeous and could potentially be very addictive if the combat is anything to go by. Instead of a rough-shod 3D brawler, players take the role of Tony Stark as he speeds along, shooting down enemies in his path in an After Burner-like target and fire system. Obviously we won't know more until closer to the release date of April 25th, but for now you can check out…

It's Easter!.. As If You've Forgotten

Apologies if things are a bit slow over the next few days - we're more than likely in a giant chocolate coma... a big, delicious, chocolate-y deep sleep. Anyway, that's our excuse for now and we'll have plenty (and I do mean that) to cover once we're back from our holiday. Enjoy the weekend!…


First trailer for Broken Age

First trailer for Broken Age

Earlier in the week we showed you the new name for the game formerly known as Double Fine Adventure. Now we can show you the first footage from the Broken Age in this trailer released at last night's IGF awards. It shows off the two parts of the game – one revolving around a young girl offered up as a sacrifice to a monster, the other a young boy living a lonely and isolated life on board some sort of spaceship. Everything looks gorgeous and quirky, and the soundtrack adds a darker note to proceedings. You can colour us even more excited about the game than we were before. There's still no release date, but as ever, we'll keep you updated as soon as we know more. You can check out t…


First trailer for Dungeon Hunter 4 arrives

First trailer for Dungeon Hunter 4 arrives

It's fair to say that Dungeon Hunter 3 didn't go down too well with a lot of people. The move from a premium, story based adventure to a freemium, arena based brawler didn't go down too well with a lot of fans. And now we've got the first trailer for the fourth game in the series, cleverly titled Dungeon Hunter 4. Right now we've got no release date, no confirmation of pricing, and a trailer that, while it shows off lots of violence and the possibility of a story, doesn't really give any clues away. One thing's for sure, the game looks gorgeous, and it's going to feature plenty of large enemies for you to club, slice, shoot, and magic to death. It also appears a giant demon is going to be…

Check Out Halfbrick's New Title - Fish Out Of Water

If you've been wondering what Halfbrick have been up to, the answer is: Fish Out Of Water. Your task, should you jump in to the gorgeous looking deeps, is to fling one of the many fish you have available and score as high as you can. The twist comes in each fish sporting unique properties that will help you to overcome the dynamically changing ocean. While the dolphin may be helpful in one situation, you may need 'The Brothers' to bounce over many smaller waves in a rough ocean, or skip them altogether with 'Micro' the whale. There are also incentives for playing with friends, including levelling up and earning temporary boosts to help you out. The game is should set you back $0.99, how…

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

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

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…
