A Game for Fans of Star Wars and Pinball

Star Wars Pinball Boba Fett is hitting the App Store this week. Those who want to relive the key movie moments of Boba Fett while juggling multi-ball and shooting up ramps, this game will be right up your alley. The trailer makes it look a little cinematic in places, but that might just mean more amusement as you're chasing that high score. Have a look for yourselves.…


Speed Kills hits the App Store running

Speed Kills hits the App Store running

Speed Kills is a top down racer, powered by the Unreal Engine, that harks back to the glory days of Micro Machines and Skid Marks with its violent, action packed, hard cornering gameplay. And you can grab it right now from the App Store for nothing at all. The game features more than 100 races spread across 50 unique tracks, and fully upgradeable vehicles that can look like sleek futuristic rocket ships or post-apocalyptic death trucks. Throw in some weapons and you've got a recipe for destruction. It certainly looks the part, and there's a pumping industrial rock soundtrack to make your ears bleed too. Getting the right balance of arcade handling and decent controls can be difficult on to…


Towel Fight 2: The Monocle of Destiny

Towel Fight 2: The Monocle of Destiny

The first thought I had watching the trailer of Towelfight 2 is that the game designers definitely took their inspiration from The Binding of Isaac. This is certainly not a bad thing at all as long as the control allow for fluid movement around these crazy game levels. The whole game has a nice 'we don't take ourselves that seriously' tone, and when the game is released on February 26th, it could prove to be quite enjoyable.…

Red Rusher is... er... Rushing into the App Store on Feb 25th

While the majority of the trailer I'm about to embed sets up the story of Red Rusher, it was the brief gameplay glimpses at the end that intrigued me, with its monochrome colour pallete and 'swiping to slash' attacks. Have a look for yourself. Have a look out for this one dropping in the App Store early next week.…

Rock Slide due for iOS Sometime in March

Rock Slide just came out on Android devices, but is slated for an iOS release this March. Now a quick look at it might cause most of you to be dismissive of its simplistic visuals, but have a look at the trailer, and the puzzle gameplay underneath. I think puzzle fans will find some entertainment when this one finally gets released.…


Avadon 2: The Corruption coming later this year

Avadon 2: The Corruption coming later this year

If you like your RPGs old skool, your view points isometric, and your epic adventures quest based, then you're probably going to get pretty excited at the prospect of the recently revealed Avadon 2: The Corruption. The second in Spiderweb Software's deep, heavy going RPG series, this new adventure, which is the middle chunk of a proposed trilogy, is set to pick up where its predecessor left off, adding new intrigues and story lines for you to get your teeth into. This isn't RPGing for the faint of heart or the action orientated though, much like its predecessor the game is set to offer deep character advancement, plenty of lore, and hours upon hours of quests, side quests, and diversions f…


The Witness heading to iOS

The Witness heading to iOS

In all the bluster over the PS4 reveal last night, you might have missed a pretty interesting snippet of information – The Witness, created by Jonathan Blow the man behind seminal mind warping platformer Braid, is coming to iOS devices. A puzzle game set in an open world, The Witness sees you interacting with a series of panels in order to manipulate the gorgeous looking island you find yourself on. The brain teasers on offer are non-linear, so if you get stuck on one you can wander over to the next and have a crack at that instead. In a post over at the PlayStation blog, Thekla Inc., the team working on the game, said that the game is really about “epiphany – that leap y…


Save Kittens from Fire

Save Kittens from Fire

I'm not quite sure what to think about Jones on Fire, an endless runner looking title that is being released this Thursday on the 21st. It's style and music reminds me of Bit.trip Runner, but it has an endless runner look to it, and with the kitty saving, an element of games like Grim Joggers. Have a look at the trailer and see for yourself.  …


Everplay gives you 1001 Attempts

Everplay gives you 1001 Attempts

If you like your iOS games as hard, or harder than, nails, then Spellsword developer Everplay could well have a special treat waiting for you at the end of the month in the shape of 1001 Attempts. It's a game that's all about trying, dying, and trying again. Presented in a simple, retro style, the game throws you into an empty room and tasks you with collecting some gems. Of course, it's much tougher than that, as you can tell from the trailer we've embedded below. It doesn't take long for obstacles to start springing out of the walls, and that's when the real trouble starts. 1001 Attempts is tapping into the one-more-try arcade mentality that makes you push on even though your fingers are…

Mikey Shorts Followup... with Hooks!

As those who watched my 2012 list will know, Mikey Shorts was one of my favourite games last year. Many might not know, but the creators of the game met while trading highscore slots on the game Hook Champ. This is important as their followup title Mikey Hooks is pretty much the same fast and flowing platformer gameplay... with hooks! Have a look at the sneak peak video. The only release info we have is that it will hit in Spring, so keep an eye out from March to May. I sure will be!…


Chillingo releases The Gods: Rebellion trailer

Chillingo releases The Gods: Rebellion trailer

Chillingo has released a trailer for its upcoming hack and slasher The Gods: Rebellion, and the Unreal 3 powered game looks like it's shaping up to be a pleasantly violent diversion from the drudgery of real life. Based on ancient Chinese legend, the game takes its visual cues from the likes of Diablo, throwing you into a sort of isometric world and then giving you lots and lots of things to kill. And, as you'd expect from a game powered by Unreal tech, it looks pretty impressive. Details are slim on the ground at the moment, but Chillingo has revealed that there'll be two distinct game modes to play through, and characters and upgrades to unlock. They've also stated the app will be univer…


Alien Breed creeps onto Android

Alien Breed creeps onto Android

If you're the sort of Android owning gamer who goes misty eyed for the long forgotten days of the Amiga 500, then it's shaping up to be a pretty good week for you with the release of Team 17's xenomorph blasting classic Alien Breed onto the Google Play Store. The game borrows heavily from a slightly more famous series of films with the word Alien in their title, and casts you as a lone space marine trapped on a crashing space ship with nothing but a horde of slavering monsters to keep you company. Rather than coming out of the walls, these extra terrestrial slaughter machines tend to come out of the floors, and you'll need your wits about you if you plan on surviving through the 22 levels…

Ragdoll Boxing Flopping onto iPad

Start your week off with a bit of amusement and watch this gameplay trailer of the upcoming multiplayer iPad game, Ragdoll Boxing.

Metal Slug Wars hits Canada

Metal Slug Wars hits Canada

If you've ever thought that the Metal Slug series of games was too focused on non-stop violence, platforming fun, and slapstick comedy, then you're in luck, because SNK apparently agrees with you. And to right that wrong, they've released Metal Slug Wars on the Canadian App Store. Rather than sticking to the tried and tested Metal Slug formula, the game is a massively multiplayer RTS that sees you storming the defences of the evil General Morden in order to try and put an end to his evil and nefarious insurrection. You'll get to build bases, train your troops and generally do all the fun things that an RTS lets you get along with. Who wants to take on giant bosses single handedly in battle…
