Icebreaker Hockey Is Free To Download For A Limited Time

NaturalMotion Games's arcade ice hockey title Icebreaker Hockey is currently free to download for a limited time. The recipient of a mighty fine 4/5 from this very site, Icebreaker Hockey has you deking and spinning your way past fierce opposition players, before lining up a power shot to beat the goaltender. On the other hand, you may mess up somewhere along the way and get brutally barged into a Plexiglass wall for your troubles. It's a game of heroic victories and hilariously exaggerated defeats, then, as you work your way through the increasingly stiff opposition provided in Challenge mode. There's no word on how long this promotion is set to last, so hockey fans will want to get the…

Wind-up Knight Walkthrough Chapter 1 Levels 1-6

One thing we're always considering here at AppSpy is what we can do to add to our list of regular features, hopefully entertaining or informing our viewers in some way. Considering the amount of time spent playing and recording the games we review, it only made sense to add a Walkthrough video to our repertoir; as such we've started with the recent Wind-up Knight and hope to slowly add more games over time. Apologies for those looking for a Wrap-Up this week - we'll be back up to speed after the New Year and you can look forward to plenty of regular features (Games of the Month and Games of the Year) once I'm back in the office. Have fun, party safe and enjoy the following video if you're…

Rockstar Discount Grand Theft Auto Titles On iPhone

Rockstar Games, developers of the Grand Theft Auto series, are discounting their iPhone releases as a Christmas gift to gamers. That means you can pick up the open-world classic Grand Theft Auto III, which we awarded a perfect 5/5 in our review last week, for a mere $2.99. While GTA3 was originally released on the PS2, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars was developed especially for portable devices. It, too, picked up 5/5 in our review, and it's currently available for $5.99. Finally, Rockstar's music creation app Beaterator is also available at a reduced price. Co-produced by the rapper Timbaland, this fancy bit of software is available for $1.99. Rockstar fans have until 29th December to…

Top-Notch Puzzler Aqueduct Updated With New Levels. Some Free, Some Not.

The Kieffer Bros's puzzler Aqueduct has been updated, adding new level packs to the game. One of these packs is free, while two more are available as in-app purchases. Aqueduct, which we awarded a strong 4/5 in our review last year, has you playing plumber as you work to restore the flow of water to an abstract aqueduct. The first level pack, called the Butterfly Chapter, is aimed at novice players, and is free as part of the update. The Rooster and Snake Chapters, meanwhile, are slightly more advanced, and are available as in-app purchases, priced at 99c each. All three level packs feature Game Center achievements for you to unlock, too. Also available for purchase is the Master Key, wh…

SilverTree Media’s Dreamy Shooter Sleepy Jack Arrives On iPhone

Sleepy Jack, the latest game from the developers of the acclaimed platformer Cordy, is now available for the iPhone. Previously exclusive to Sony Ericsson's Xperia Play, Sleepy Jack sees you control the eponymous lad in a journey through his toddler subconscious. As you fly through Jack's dreams and battle the twisted inhabitants of his bedroom toy box, you're armed with a toy ray gun to shoot down his nightmares. It's a surreal shooter of sorts, then, and now that it's arrived on the iPhone, there's support for both Game Center and OpenFeint included to handle your achievements. Sleepy Jack is available from the App Store for the discounted price of 99c. It's a limited-time offer, so a…

Cave’s Arcade Shoot-‘Em-Up Bug Princess Arrives On App Store Tomorrow

Cave’s Arcade Shoot-‘Em-Up Bug Princess Arrives On App Store Tomorrow

Japanese shoot-'em-up developers Cave are bringing Bug Princess to the App Store tomorrow. Originally released in 2004 as Mushihimesama in Japan, this insect-themed shooter has been updated and optimised for the iPhone's touchscreen, while support for Game Center and OpenFeint means that you can compete for leaderboard dominance. Like Cave's other releases, Bug Princess's manic bullet-hell gameplay may not be for the faint of heart. Cave's previous efforts - ESPGALUDA II and Mushihimesama BUG PANIC - both scored a perfect 5/5 on AppSpy, however, so the company's reputation for delivering high-quality hardcore shmups precedes them. Bug Princess is already out on New Zealand's App Store, s…

Jelly Defense Receives New Levels and Leaderboards In Christmas Update

Christmas is almost here, and what better way to celebrate than with new levels for an iPhone tower defence title? Okay, so there are plenty of better ways to celebrate, but owners of Jelly Defense, which we awarded 4/5 in our review, will definitely want to help themselves to this free festive update for the game. The update adds two wintry levels of tower defence gameplay to the title and one endless level that promises to be a tough Christmas cookie. New leaderboards are also included, as well as a 'new and cozy' music track to accompany your campaign of Jelly warfare. Minor tweaks to gameplay and performance enhancements round out the package, while the mandatory difficulty hike that…

Tongue-Tied Brings Physics-Based Platforming To iPhone On 15th December

Tongue Tied, the intriguing debut iPhone title from Mojo Bones, will be released on December 15th. In this physics-platformer, you play as Mick and Ralph, a pair of unfortunate pooches who find themselves in an unusual predicament. Yes, they're tongue tied. That is to say, they have been tied together by their long elasticated tongues. Your task, then, is to guide these canine chums through 50 challenging levels - in search of the 'Wonderbone' - by stretching and firing them at the most appropriate moments. Game Center support, a variety of unlockables, and tons of perilous obstacles combine to form quite the comprehensive package. Tongue Tied will be available from the App Store this…

Über-Popular Facebook Shooter UberStrike Being Ported To iOS In 2012

CEO of Cmune Ludovic Bodin announced today at the Social Gaming and Virtual Goods World conference that Unity3D shooter UberStrike, previously only playable on Facebook, will be arriving on iOS in the near future. With its 1 million+ players gladly indulging in the simple thrill of charging around a tropical island and gibbing enemies like it’s 1995, UberStrike has become one of the most popular free-to-play games on The Social Network. Already ported to the Mac App Store with chart-topping results, Bodin believes it’s time for the FPS to make its mobile debut. An iPad version of the game has already been spotted in Cmune’s official forums, so it’s clear iOS develo…

To-Fu: The Trials of Chi Is Now Free, But It's Covered In Adverts

To-Fu: The Trials of Chi has received an update which makes the game free to download. Unfortunately, that's not all the update delivers. In version 1.10.0 of To-Fu: The Trials of Chi, you will now encounter some of those intrusive in-app advertisements - even those punters who had shelled out hard cash for the game. Nevertheless, it's a good deal for newcomers, as the game and all of its in-app purchases are now free of charge. In addition, To-Fu: The Trials of Chi's developers HotGen have introduced five brand-new trials for you to play through. Tasking you with bouncing your bandana-clad bean curd through increasingly spiky levels, To-Fu: The Trials of Chi was awarded a very respectab…
