Vergence Fated to Appear in App Store

Vergence Fated to Appear in App Store

You don't see too many Metroidvania games on the App Store. Perhaps its that mobile gaming doesn't lend itself to the genre, or that it's hard to get the controls right, but it's good see that there are some out there. Well I'm assuming Vergence: Will of Fate is a Metroidvania game from the description and the trailer. If not, it still looks visually interesting as a platformer, and promises lots of rooms to visit and upgrades to acquire. Here's the trailer. The game is released on December 9th.…

Autumn Dynasty Universal Edition

Autumn Dynasty Universal Edition

Earlier this year, Autumn Dynasty was released for the iPad. It met with some success, but now since they're bringing it to the iPhone as well, they've used the time towards this new release to redesign the interface. So what is Autumn Dynasty? Have a watch of the trailer. It looks like a simple to use real time strategy game wrapped in a gorgeous Japanese brush paining style. This will be one to watch out for on its release next week on December 13th!…

She-Ra turns up in He-Man

She-Ra turns up in He-Man

If you thought there wasn't enough girl power in He-Man: The Most Powerful Game In The Universe, then you're in luck, because the latest update to the game brings with it everyone's favourite princess of power, She-Ra. As well as letting you play as He-Man's twin sister, the new update adds different skins for the menus, and two new levels designed with the alter ego of Princess Adora in mind. We weren't the greatest fans of the game when it came out, but it's still an enjoyable, if ocassionally frustrating, little side scrolling brawler. So if you like your cartoon violence performed by a lady rather than a chap, you could do a lot worse than heading over to the App Store and grabbing th…


Fans of Horror Games Have a Release to look Forward to this Week

Fans of Horror Games Have a Release to look Forward to this Week

Some of the scariest games are those where you have no weapons, and have to survive by your wits against whatever creepy creature of darkness is trying to do you in. Now personally I can't play any game with horror elements as it affects me too greatly, but for those that enjoy a good spook, The Woods is released on December 7th. Have a look at the trailer. Unfortunetely those with an older iPhone than the iPhone 4 are out of luck, but as a horror experience, it looks plenty atmospheric, and should be a blast... if you like that sort of thing.…

Metal Gear Solid Social Ops hits Japanese App Store

Metal Gear Solid Social Ops hits Japanese App Store

Konami and Gree's Metal Gear Solid Social Ops has snuck onto the Japanese App Store, bringing with it plenty of card based stealthy espionage action. As you'd expect from Gree, the game is a tactical card battler that takes situations and characters from the Metal Gear universe and pits them against one another. You need to build up your deck of heroes in order to take down enemies that range from single soldiers to multiple bipedal tanks. All in a day's work really. There's no word yet on when or if the game will get a worldwide release, but with the popularity of the Metal Gear series worldwide, and the pick up and play nature of card battlers, we can't imagine why it won't come out els…

Nanomites

Ok, so it's not the first use of this mechanic, and it won't be the last, but i think using touch gestures to fence off these creatures is pretty neat. It's similar to the game Qix, but you get to separate expressive nano creatures. Take a look at the trailer. The game is being released on December 12th.…

Modern Combat 4 arrives on Thursday

The next installment in Gameloft's Call of Duty inspired Modern Combat series, subtitled Zero Hour, will be dramatically blasting its way onto the App Store on Thursday. Android gamers will have to wait a little longer to get their hands on the game, with Gameloft stating that the game should be available "shortly after" on the Google powered devices. Although Gameloft's track record on Android ports means not holding your breath for it is advisable. There's no word on a specific price yet, but Gameloft has revealed that the game will be a premium release, so something around $4.99 shouldn't be too far off the mark. With a strong single player campaign, new multiplayer modes, and some of…

Angry Birds Seasons gets advent calendar updates

Rovio has released a new update to Angry Birds Seasons that adds a wintry theme to the bird flinging, physics based destruction puzzler. There are twenty five new levels that unlock every day from now until Christmas, as well as three secret levels that apparently offer specil wintry treats. The new update also introduces the ice element, which you can expect to be both slippy and slidy, and add all sorts of new mayhem to the already pretty madcap game. The update, which pushes the game up to version 3.10, is available from the App Store right now for free. So if you fancy some Christmas themed bird on pig action, we'd suggest grabbing it as soon as possible.…

Zenonia 5 hits Android

Gamevil has released the next installment of its action RPG series, Zenonia, onto the Google Play Store. And that means that an iOS version shouldn't be too far behind. Subtitled Wheel of Destiny, the game is set long after the events of the fourth title in the series, and sees the world being overrun with monsters yet again. Cue some Zelda inspired top-down hacking and slashing as you try and restore order to once peaceful lands by killing everything that looks a bit like it might be about to do something bad. By the looks of the trailer, which you can check out for yourself below, it also looks like Gamevil has squashed a card battler into the game as well. Throw in PvP, four new classe…
