Limbo out on iOS Next Week

Limbo out on iOS Next Week

Some of you will be familiar with Limbo, a puzzle platformer released on XBLA in 2010 that has been ported to both the PSN, PC, and Mac. It's known for its striking monochromatic art style, generous checkpoint system and punishing trial and error puzzle gameplay. Here's a trailer of the original release. Here's hoping that the controls are well executed on the touch screen. We'll certainly let you now how the port holds up next week.…

Sprinkle Islands putting the fire out on July 11th

It's been two years since the release of the original Sprinkle (check out our review here), and now Mediocre Games are about to release the follow-up, titled Sprinkle Islands. It looks to feature the same interesting water based physics of the original, but has undergone an aesthetic change that makes aspects of the game look a little bit like claymation, which is of course amazing. Check out the trailer below and keep a look out for this as it releases on July 11th.…

Dark Nebula - Episode One HD re-release

Ah Dark Nebula, the review of your first episode takes us back to a simpler time in Appspy's history. A time when the videos were voiced by a young go-getter named Dave and the content and word choice of our writing had a lot of room in which to grow and mature. Go back and relive the memories if you dare. Now that this trip down memory lane has ended, you might be interested to know that Dark Nebula is getting a HD makeover with twelve levels of all new content. Not only that, but it's been confirmed that episode three is finally on its way. Have a look at the trailer. It is available on the App Store now for $0.99[App Store Link]…

League of Evil 3

League of Evil 3

The first two League of Evil games are known for popularizing the 'tough as nails' platformer on the iOS, and have been quite successful at it with their pixel style and strong controls. Now this week we see the release of the third installment, and suprisingly a whole new art style along with it. Have a look at the trailer. It looks to have a strong focus on character customisation, and it includes video replays that I'm sure can be shared. We'll certainly know more once the game is out and we review it.…

Eden to GREEN

Eden to GREEN

It's always nice to see console developers try their hand at mobile games. It can breed cynicism when they create a game in an established genre like tower defence, but iNiS (with such games as Gitaroo Man and Elite Beat Agents in their catalogue) are no strangers to creating odd yet enjoyable play experiences. Eden to GREEN looks to continue this trend. Now, even though the gameplay trailer below shows the game running on Android devices, it is also released for iOS and is available right now. Here's the gameplay video: It's a war of plants and machines. The game sprouts an interesting mechanic where you can only plant new towers in the radius offered by others, limi…

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Removed from App Store

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition Removed from App Store

It seems not only has Baldur's Gate: Enhanched Edition been removed from the App Store under the vague reasoning of "contractual issues", this has halted the latest game patch and development on the sequel as well. Hopefully whatever is causing this can be sorted out quickly. After all the hard work from the developers to polish up and port this classic RPG the last thing anyone wants is a legal issue tearing things down. We will have to wait and see what happens.

Rovio publishes Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage

Rovio publishes Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage

With Angry Birds steward Rovio now taking smaller devs under its expansive wings, we're going to see some new iOS games with some seriously flashy trailers. The first game to get the Rovio Stars big budget video treatment is Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage. It's a 3D physics puzzler that bears a passing resemblance to Rovio's own bird-flinging franchise. However, instead of catapulting fowl towards pigs, you must swipe blocks of ice to free your viking buddies from their frosty tombs. You won't just be liberating Nordic warriors, though. There are chests of treasure to grab, quests to complete, and bosses to fight along the way. We suggest you have a look at the Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage t…

Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour receives Meltdown Update

The latest episode in Gameloft's premiere FPS franchise Modern Combat has just received its biggest update yet - and we have the video to prove it. Entitled the 'Meltdown Update', this downloadable expansion to Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour adds new maps, weapons, and multiplayer modes.  First off, you can now explore the Fracture, Extraction, and Backfire maps. These will see fighting for your life on the streets of Barcelona, and blasting your way accross the ice of Antarctica. As for fresh firepower, you'll gain acess to a Special Forces sniper rifle. Oh, and a grenade launcher pistol. That's right: you get a pistol which launches grenades.  Merry Christmas. You can also also…

Watch Dogs Live

Watch Dogs Live

Watch Dogs is one of the more anticipated games that will be released this holiday season, and as we head into the next console generation, mobile games are going to play a larger part in these releases. Watch Dogs Live is an app that is kind of like Foursquare or Geo Caching, but your involvement is rewarded not only with experience inside the game, but the ability to win prizes as well (including a car). You visit locations in your city, and the longer you control them, the more exp you gain, and the greater your chances to win are. The app is being soft launched in Canada but should make its way worldwide very soon.…

Where's my Mickey?

Where's my Mickey?

We've had Where's My Water?, and Where's my Perry?, and while both games got a lot of love here on Appspy, one wonders if another franchise based sequel is going to the well one too many times (I mean the well has to run out of water sooner or later). The game is full of new additions to the gameplay however, as well as some unlockable short cartoons featuring the famous icon. Have a look at the trailer. The trailer says "Out now" but it is not yet available on the App Store. If you're interested, check back later in the week.…

XCOM: Enemy Unknown out on Thursday

XCOM: Enemy Unknown out on Thursday

Strategic UFO shooter XCOM: Enemy Unknown is due to appear on the App Store this Thursday. This release will be an almost identical port of the acclaimed console and PC title of the same name.  If you've never stumbled across the console version, XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a turn-based strategy game which places you in command of a military response unit. You job is to monitor,  manage and repel UFO incursions. Here's what you need to know: Firstly, it'll be available on iPhone and iPad.  Secondly, as it's a port of a recent console release, you're going to be dealing with a pretty hefty file size. We're talking gigabytes rather than megabytes here, meaning you might have to m…

Gloomy Hollow

Gloomy Hollow

Chillingo has been busy on the announcements lately. Gloomy Hollow looks to a mobile take on the Action RPG genre popularized by the Diablo series (although the art style of this game marks a closer comparison to the Torchlight games). Have a look at the trailer! The classes look interesting, and as long as the controls are solid, and the content is there, Chillingo should have a winner on their hands. The release schedule is apparently "soon".…

Fightback

Fightback

I'm unsure what to think about this teaser trailer for the upcoming iOS game by Ninja Theory and Chillingo. On the one hand, the premise, and small glimpses of gameplay look very generic in terms of violence and mechanics. One the other hand, the trailer seems to have a tongue in cheek attitude to it, and if the fighting feels right, it could be a lot of fun. Have a look for yourselves and tell us what you think. The game has a planned release for sometime this year. We'll let you know more when we do.…

League of Evil 3 landing on the App Store June 27th

If there's one thing Ravenous Games knows, its 2D platformers. From the League of Evil series to Infestor and Random Heroes, the Canadian studio is a beacon to other iOS developers looking for examples of pixel-perfect touchscreen control systems. Which brings me to today's good news: League of Evil 3 is due to come leaping onto the App Store on June 27th. As before, you'll be guiding a partially mechanised super soldier through a series of hazardous envirnoments. Your mission: clobber the villainous scientists who have made you the (awesome) monster you are.  Judging by the screenshots, it looks like the dev is sticking fairly closely to the established formula of jumping, dodging,…

Deus Ex: The Fall E3 Trailer

The announcement of this iOS exclusive sequel to the hit game Deus Ex: Human Revolution was of course shown in more detail at E3 this week. We would like to share the trailer with you all. It looks to have many of the same systems in place that its predecessor contained. As it is a touch screen game, the big question is of course how does it control? We should find out soon as it's slated for release over the next couple of months.…
