Friday News Wrap-Up 14 September 2012

Friday News Wrap-Up 14 September 2012

Has the month just come to a halt now that the iPhone 5 has been announced? It feels that way to me... or maybe I’m crazy. Either way lets scrape up what news we can for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 14th of September, 2012. Payback 2 - Long-awaited sequel in developmentThose who happen to be long-time iOS gamers may remember the GTA-like title Payback from the dark-old ages of iPhone gaming. Rendered in software mode rather than hardware, it was a testament to the developer’s dedication, especially as it seemed to start out as an Amiga project. Payback 2 takes another swing at the free-exploring GTA formula, albeit with its own twist of allowing the player to custom…


Steel Yourself for the Release of Bank Rush Next Week

Steel Yourself for the Release of Bank Rush Next Week

Yes it's another game where you see how far you can get before a grisly fate, but there's something about the art style and sense of humour evident in the trailer that cracked through our hard exterior here at Appspy. Bank Rush is due out in the app store next week.…


Run and Gun Zombies with Apocolypse Max

Run and Gun Zombies with Apocolypse Max

Due out in the App Store this week, Apocolypse Max: Better dead than undead is a run and gun platformer that visually reminds me a lot of the Metal Slug games (only with more zombies). The music in the trailer is a little much, but you do get a good sense of the platforming action available to you.…

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)

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

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 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…
