QI's top 10 iPhone Games for August 2012

It's that time of the month again. Quality Index has released their Top 10 iPhone games for August, and we are here to relay that information to you, our dear readers. Let's see what made the cut... 1.  Blast-A-Way 9.22. Ticket to Ride Europe Pocket 9.23. Mikey Shorts 9.04. Monster Cube 9.05. Keri Racing 8.96.  McPixel 8.97.  Lost Cities 8.88. Café International 8.89. Horn 8.710. Organ Trail: Director's Cut 8.7 It's interesting to see how their list stands up our own top 3. For instance, our editor's pick Horn hit their number nine spot, but our other two picks didn't make the list. It might show a disconnect between mass appeal and niche gaming as Bastion and The Wor…

iPhone 5 'Leaked' Advert (Rumor)

We're just shy of Apple's full announcement of the iPhone 5 and it seems a leak has sprung... not that we're calling this video legitimate, but it walks the walk, so we're not complaining! The fingerprint scanner has me kind of excited, so it's fingers-crossed that we see this hit the final version.…

Rolling Rolling Rolling

The Way We Roll is a rolling based puzzle game that's due out on September the 12th. From the trailer we can see it has a pleasing art style, and the puzzle design looks to be solid (even though the concept itself isn't anything we haven't see before). You'll get a chance to find out for yourself later this week when it's released.…

Friday News Wrap-Up 7 September 2012

I can’t believe we’re already this deep into September already - I guess that means I’ll need to work up a Top 3 list (hint, it may be out on Tuesday), but in the meantime I have reviews and news to dispense, so lets hit up the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 7th of September, 2012. Assassin's Creed Utopia - Sim City with stabbingDespite the vague 'Winter' release date, the Assassin's Creed spin off title for iOS, dubbed 'Utopia', is looking mighty fine. I'm also happy to report that in a continued effort by Ubisoft to 'disconnect' from always-on Internet designed games, the only link between this title and Assassin's Creed 3 is that it will effectively lead up to th…


Rayman on iPhone

Rayman on iPhone

Funnily enough i'm heading over to a friend's place this evening to play some Rayman Origins so how fortuitous that we recieve the news that a title in the same fantastic art style is coming to iOS. While the title is probably to cash in on the Temple Run craze, i wonder if this is an endless runner, or a level by level platformer. Either way, this looks like it'll be a lot of fun (even if they don't know how to spell 'september'.…

Double Fine Breaks Out The 'Middle Manager of Justice'

Double Fine Breaks Out The 'Middle Manager of Justice'

Double Fine Productions, along with the help of Dracogen, are spreading their wings taking flight in to the iOS arena, kicking things off with something familiar, but with a predictably quirky twist. Middle Manager of Justice tasks players with the uneviable role of managing a group of superheroes, taking care of all of the mundane tasks you usually never hear about in comic books. From maintaining the health and performance of individual heroes, to ensuring the cash-flow and facilities are sufficient enough to take on large tasks, you're the fine-line between the black and the red on the ledger. By all accounts it looks like we're in for a freemium title, but if the concept is u…

Fly by Night this Thursday

No, this isn't a re-release of a 1970s rock album (joke!), but rather a fun looking little flyer called Night Flight debuting in the App Store this week. Here's the trailer. The regular version of the game will be $0.99 and the HD version will be $1.99. The lighting is impressive and the flying looks like it may be quite loose, which can be fun and challenging with the right design. I'll guess we'll know upon release won't we.…

Frutorious' Felt Fun Hitting the App Store Late Next Month

Finding a unique and catching art style when designing your game is certainly a challenge. When Kirby's Epic Yarn came out a couple years ago, its use of felt and yarn was refreshing and whimsical and reminded some of us of the claymation games of the 16-bit era. Frutorious combines felt and clay in what looks to be a high score jumping game with plenty of charisma. Have a look at the trailer... No definitive release date has been set, but the developers are anticipating late September. We'll let you know when it happens.…

Heroes' Call Undergoes an Update

Some of you may remember our review of Heroes' Call. In summary it's a decent enough hack and slash RPG that was dragged down by designing its systems around the worst aspects of the freemium model. Since then based on reviews and user feedback, the dev team has been working to fix some of these issues, and we're happy to advertise that their first update has hit the app store. Here are the changes... * The in-app purchase currency of gems has been removed entirely (and any gems held by players have now been turned into gold). * The shadow assassin class has become playable for all. * Hard Mode characters available. * Replaying missions warrants more gold and better gear. * Story miss…
