FAA's Free App of the Day – Random Heroes

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." Trailer: You can check out our review of Random Heroes here (note the game has been updated since this release - so take the plunge!) Download…

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…

Falling...and Falling

While a lot of games based on vertical movement have you jumping ever highwards, Freedom Fall has decided to travel in the other direction. Being released on the App Store sometime in mid-November, this gameplay and art style look good enough to make this an enjoyable experience. Of course looks can be decieving, but we'll wait till it's out to pass judgement. Here's the trailer.…

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…

GREE releases new game targetting the "mid-core"

GREE has released a new monster nabbing title that it hopes is going to bridge the gap between the hardcore and the casual. So there's epic adventure and battles, alongside world building and house keeping tasks. Called Monster Quest, the game is all about capturing 400 different types of beast, then building up your own personal army of monstrous servants. There's a PVP mode as well that allows you to pit your army against another player's, battling it out to see whose collection of hideous creatures is the strongest. “From casual to mid-core games, our mission is to continuously expand our content offering to provide deeply entertaining experiences to all types of mobile gamers…


Hands On Preview For Punch Quest

Hands On Preview For Punch Quest

With Dave catching up on work and releases flying at me left and right the usual Friday Wrap-Up has been delayed, but fear not for I have something just as good - a hands-on preview! Lets not beat around the bush here, Punch Quest from Rocketcat Games owes much of its DNA to that of Jetpack Joyride from Halfbrick Studios. That said, what's on offer is a distinctly different beast even if it does fall in to the rather broad 'auto-runner' category that has been a near constant on the App Store for a long time. However, Punch Quest 'gets it'. From the instant you load up and hit start the game starts blaring at you with colorful explosions everywhere; enemies flying left and right a…

Infinity Blade Dungeons delayed until next year

If you've been looking forward to some Infinity Blade style dungeon crawling this year, then we've got bad news for you. According to AllThingsD Epic and Impossible Studio's Diablo aping hack and slasher has been put back until 2013. “Ever since the talented team at Impossible Studios got their hands on Infinity Blade: Dungeons, they’ve been busy adding their great ideas to the game,” spokesman Wes Phillips told the website. “There was also the matter of getting the Impossible Studios team up and running with desks, chairs, staplers and computers. The logistics of a new studio and implementing all these great ideas required a little extra time, so Infinity Blade:…


Sonic Jump leaping on to the App Store

Sonic Jump leaping on to the App Store

Sega is set to release its first smartphone-only Sonic title, Sonic Jump, which sees you leading the blue hedgehog through a variety of vertical levels. The game plays a lot like Doodle Jump, with the blue speedster leaping whenever he touches a platform and tilts of your device controlling the direction of his jumps. There are some Sonic-y twists thrown in too, with power ups that give you boosts that are going to be familiar to anyone who's played a Sonic game before, and boss battles against the evil Dr. Eggman. Sonic Jump should be available from the App Store pretty darn soon, and it'll set you back $1.99.…

If Gaming is a meal, is this Finger Food?

Ok, i admit that title was seriously lame, but you know what isn't? The look of the game this article is covering! Full recovery! Finger Tied is an iPad only game that's coming out this Thursday. It will cost $2.99 and is a game that be played by oneself or with others in a party environment. It's kind of a finger dexterity puzzler. What do I mean by that? Well the trailer more than explains.…

Carmageddon Free For First 24 Hours

While we finish up our review of Carmageddon, do yourself a favor and grab a copy for free right now! (Some regions may not yet be active - just be patient as it rolls out around the globe) You can thank the wonderful contributors over at the Carmageddon: Reincarnation Kickstarter page for not only bringing back to life one of the 90's craziest car-racing-come-bloodsport titles, but also helping to fund the iOS release we have today. Personally I'm having a hard time pulling off the rose-tinted glasses, what with having spent an ungodly amount of time enjoying the game by myself and with friends via multiplayer. If anything, it's a good indicator that gamers from the 90s will definitely wa…

100 day game Super-Fluid hits the App Store

Super-Fluid is the result of one hundred days of hard work. Created as part of Virgin Media's 100 Day challenge, the game is a side scrolling puzzler. The game was built by a team of four graduate developers from the University of Essex in the UK, who after forming Surface Tension Studios were propelled into a heady century of developing, testing, and getting advice from some of the best in the business. "We’ve had a fantastic time and would like to thank Virgin Media for giving us this amazing opportunity." said Dave Pearson from Surface Tension in a press release. "We've always wanted to work in the games industry and now thanks to this competition it's really happening. We&rsqu…

Sword of Fargoal 2 gets Kickstarted

The best success stories are always the ones that skirt dangerously close to failure. So it was with Sword of Fargoal 2's Kickstarter adventure, which saw the retro Rogue-like scrape past its funding amount with seconds to spare. The game is a true sequel to a C64 dungeon crawler that came out more than a quarter of a century ago and challenged you to raid randomly generated dungeons in order to discover and reclaim the titular sword. This new polished version will feature new monsters, new dungeons, new heroes - pretty much new everything really, while drawing on the legacy of the original. If you fancy trying out some old school dungeon crawling action and you can't wait for Fargoal 2,…
