Friday News Wrap-Up 12 October 2012

We've got reviews flying in left and right thanks to a near complete Internet black-out yesterday, but don't worry, we still have the news of the week covered for you in our Wrap-Up. So lets hop right to it and check out the news that was in the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 12th of October, 2012.   Arcane Legends - Building on a legacyThe Legends series from Spacetime Studios has gone through many changes, not the least of which was the recent Dark Legends with its horror-esque touch. Arcane Legends is something else altogether though as it takes the feedback the company has pooled from years of supporting their titles and brings it together in to this upcoming release. There a…


Gamevil releases Zombie Gunner

Gamevil releases Zombie Gunner

If slaughtering zombies is your cup of tea, then the App Store is likely a favourite haunt. And Gamevil has just added an extra bag to the urn with Zombie Gunner. The game is a side scrolling, cartoon shooter in a similar vein to Metal Slug, and casts you as Andrew, a civilian with a surprisingly impressive arsenal who's out to rescue his daughter from the stinking clutches of the undead horde. Like most of Gamevil's output, Zombie Gunner is free-to-play, meaning you can pick up the app for nothing, but you'll have to pay for certain items or to boost your coffers of currency. The game is available from the App Store right now, and it's probably worth a go just to see those gorgeous car…


Ivy the Kiwi? makes it to iOS

Ivy the Kiwi? makes it to iOS

Ivy the Kiwi?, Yuji Naka's impressive vine swinging platformer, has finally made its way on to the App Store, bringing with it all of the former head of Sonic Team's design nous and charm. The game is all about guiding a stranded, flightless Kiwi through 50 levels, with the ultimate goal of reuniting her with her mother. Ivy's too young to jump or fly though, so you need to help her by pulling vines down for her to swing on. Highly praised when it first came out on Windows Phone, and when it was released on the Nintendo DS, the game is perfectly at home on touchscreen devices, and is a must buy for anyone with a penchant for platforming fun. Best of all, it's launched at a discounted pr…

I Always Kind Of Suspected it

Clumsy Cat is a game where as the house feline, you have to break as much stuff as possible. Not being a cat person, this type of action doesn't surprise me in the least. Have a look at the trailer to see what kind of hijinks are in store when the game is released on October 18th…


Zombies just in time for Halloween

Zombies just in time for Halloween

Yes it's another zombie game, but being released on October 25th right before Halloween at least makes it a zombie game coming out at an appropriate time. It's NY Zombies 2, and it's shaping up to be a half decent first person zombie killing experience judging from the gameplay trailer. At least you get to gun down the undead in a lot of famous New York landmarks.…


How many Double Entendres can you Stuff into a Game Trailer?

How many Double Entendres can you Stuff into a Game Trailer?

While the game Hairy Balls is already out, the accompanying trailer is just so full of face-palming innuendos that we had to post it here. It definitly has a lot of character and a confident sense of humour (although your millage may very here). The app is free to download and if you're looking for a new puzzle game, why not give it a try.…


Crazy Taxi skids onto the App Store

Crazy Taxi skids onto the App Store

Sega's Arcade and Dreamcast classic Crazy Taxi should be making its way to an App Store near you anytime soon, bringing with it the smell of burning rubber and the sound of mid-nineties punk rock. The game, for those of you who haven't played it, is all about delivering fares to their destination before the time runs out, with some point scoring power sliding and insane jumps thrown in for good measure. It's the latest in an increasingly long line of Sega properties that are making their way onto iOS devices. We've already seen a swathe of Sonic games, but there are more Dreamcast classics on the horizon too, so watch this space. Crazy Taxi should set you back around $4.99 once it lands…


Debut Gameplay Trailer for Badland

Debut Gameplay Trailer for Badland

It's not often that the first visuals of a game can be impressive (after all, it's easy to quickly become jaded when dealing with so many games day in and day out), but after the first few seconds of this gameplay video for the upcoming Frogmind Games release Badland, i sat up and took notice. Let's hope that the gameplay remains as enticing as the atmosphere. As of now, there is no scheduled release date for the game, but we'll let you know when that changes.…

Changing the World

This Thursday, Topia will be released in the App Store. Not really a game, it's a world building simulation. You can terraform the land to your liking, introduce animals of all variaties, and watch what happens. It looks like a lot of fun, and is quite visually impressive (with rather simplistic controls). Have a look at the trailer.…


Aloha from Hawaii

Aloha from Hawaii

No no, i'm not just saying hello. Aloha From Hawaii is a penguin based platformer that's due for release sometime this fall. Just from the teaser trailer, it looks to have a lot of personality. Whether that personality will translate into fun and addictive gameplay, only time and its eventual release will tell. We'll keep you posted. For now, here's the trailer.…


He-Man brawler coming to iOS

He-Man brawler coming to iOS

If, like me, you have a soft spot for mid eighties cartoons, then you're going to be leaping around, giddy with joy at the announcement over on IGN that a new He-Man brawler is heading to iOS devices. The game is a side scrolling hack-and-slasher, and features seven different areas of Eternia, split into twenty seven different levels, for you to brawl your way through. The game is published by Chillingo, and developed by Glitchsoft, who created the pretty darn good Star Marine: Infinite Ammo. As you can tell from the screenshot above, it's looking gorgeous, with chunky sprites that pay homage to the original cartoon. There's no firm release date yet, although we expect the game will be…


Rocketcat Games releases a trailer for Punch Quest

Rocketcat Games releases a trailer for Punch Quest

Rocketcat Games, the developer behind the really rather wonderful Super Quickhook, and the equally wonderful Mage Gauntlet, has released a trailer for its next game, Punch Quest. The game looks like a homage to the side scrolling beat 'em ups of the 16bit era, complete with rideable dinosaurs and explosive button mashing combos. There appears to be a decent dollop of humour in the game too, with costume changes and ridiculous enemies all adding to the chortle value of the sprite based brawler. And if Rocketcat's pedigree is anything to go by, we should all be in for a treat. Punch Quest is sitting in Apple's decision making lap right now, being pawed over by the powers that be to make sur…

True Axis releases a teaser trailer for True Skate

True Axis, the developer behind the award winning Jet Car Stunts, has released a new trailer showing off some gameplay from their upcoming skating flick-a-thon, True Skate. The game lets you control a digital skateboard with your fingers, swiping and tapping out tricks in a pretty similar way to how you'd perform them with your feet in real life. While it does bear some similarities to Touchgrind, a change in camera angle means you can see a lot more of the park spread out around you, and plan better routes through the various obstacles. True Skate should be hitting the App Store pretty soon, but in the meantime, check out the trailer we've embedded below to get a flavour of the skate boa…
