Untitled Space Game

Now the game in question isn't coming out till early 2013, but at their website (link at the bottom of this article), they have a submission system to name their game. Not a bad way to generate some buzz if you ask me. What you need to know you can find in the trailer. It's a twin stick shooter where you control a.... thing, and the level design looks like it might present some intriguing and intense scenarios. [Untitled Game Website]…

Touchy turns your iOS device into a flash game controller

If you've ever sat playing a browser game, quietly wishing you had something better than the arrow keys on your computer to play it, your prayers have been answered. Touchy, from browser and smartphone developer Nitrome, turns your iOS device into a controller for a variety of different Nitrome games, and getting started is as simple as downloading the free app and logging on to the Nitrome website. This is a lot more than just a set of on-screen buttons though. The controller app performs differently depending on the game you select, with tailored control schemes for each of the 9 different games that are currently available. With more titles set to be announced in the not too distant fu…

Chip Chain is a new iPhone puzzle game that is being released on November 8th. You place down poker chips, and you arrange them in chains for maximum points. Sound simple enough? It may be.

Eek! (no, not the Cat)

Due out next week on November 6th, Eek! is a game that takes literalism to a whole new level, creating a 'dodge the objects' game using typography. The trailer will explain the concept better. Eek! will cost $0.99 and it looks like it provides solid enough gameplay to allow the unusual art choice to create novelty.…

Curiosity set to release next week

Peter Molyneux's first post-Microsoft game with 22cans was supposed to have come out in September. Then October. Now, it looks like it's finally been approved by Apple, and will see the light of day on November the 7th. Curiosity: What's Inside the Cube, which is all about chipping away at the outside of a cube, is one of 22 experiments set to be released by the studio that explore the nature of how we play. What's inside the cube remains a secret, a fact which is pretty impressive in this era of spolier filled trailers and leaks of information. So if you want to find out what Peter keeps inside his cube, you're just going to have to grab a pickaxe and start hacking with the rest of us ne…

November starting off with Arc Squadron

November 1st is a Thursday, and while many great games come out on Thursdays, this article is about Arc Squadron. Using the Unreal Engine and boasting an innovative touch control scheme, this space shooter bears more than a passing resemblance to high octane games like Afterburner. Have a look at the trailer to see what I mean.…


Pandoodle

Pandoodle

The title is just the name of the game, since it's pretty eye-catching all on its own. Released November 2nd, this game has a sketchy art style, and a rather simple drawing mechanic. To be honest it's probably not something most of our audience would be interested in, but there's a certain charm and elegance to it, and it looks like it could be quite enjoyable. Have a look at the trailer.…

Hardly anyone paying for Punch Quest

Hardly anyone paying for Punch Quest

While Rocket Cat's endless puncher might be gaining critical acclaim, the number of people who are actually spending money on its in-app purchases is almost non-existent. Speaking to Pocket Gamer, designer Kepa Auwae stated that while over half a million people had downloaded the game, only around 0.01% of them have actually spent any money on it. "We really needed to get seen by more people, and Punch Quest accomplished that while giving us a ton of success with review scores from major sites and acclaim from iOS gamers." It's not unusual to see the less vociferous freemium titles suffering. Earlier this year Solipskier's Gasketball suffered a similar fate, with an even more dramatic c…

Gameloft porting 12 titles to Windows Phone 8

Gameloft has announced that it's hard at work on porting 12 of its most popular iOS and Android games on to Microsoft's recently released Windows 8 Platform. There's no firm release date for the titles yet, just a vague 2012/2013, but they're a mixed bag of casual and hardcore games that should appeal to a broad spectrum of gamers. Most excitingly for Windows Phone 8 players Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour, the upcoming installment in Gameloft's CoD aping military shooter series is making the shift in the not too distant future. There's also the dynamic duo of superhero movie tie-ins The Amazing Spider-Man and The Dark Knight Rises, and sci-fi FPS epic N.O.V.A 3. You can check out all of the…
