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…

Square Enix’s Chaos Rings Omega Updated With New Level Cap, New Weapons

Square Enix have just rolled out another update to their iPhone RPG Chaos Rings Omega, increasing the level cap, adding new weapons, and introducing a new boss to get trounced by. After a similar update for this 5/5 AppSpy favourite in June, the game's level cap has now reached a mighty 150, meaning newcomers will be battling for quite some time before maxing out their stats. Old hands can face off against fierce level 150+ foes in the hope of looting a shiny new weapon from their defeated bodies. There's also a new hidden boss to face off against - if you can find him. Two new Piu-Piu collections and new dungeon treasure chests round out the update, which is available to download now.…

Sequel To Gibbets, the Life-Saving Puzzle Game For Flash, Is Coming To iOS

HeroCraft, the Russian publishers responsible for the popular Flash puzzler Gibbets, have announced that a sequel is in the works, and it's coming to iOS. Playing as an altruistic marksman in the original Gibbets game, you cut condemned men down from the gallows, using only your trusty bow. With a limited number of arrows and multiple convicts to save, each level requires careful thought as well as careful accuracy. Word from Russia, then, is that Gibbets 2 is in development, and that it will be landing on the iPhone sometime in the second quarter of next year. When it does eventually touch down on iOS, it'll boast 30 new levels of slightly morbid puzzling action. There's no word yet on…

DaWindci Soundtrack Giveaway!

We mentioned on last week's Wrap-Up that we'd have a special competition over the weekend and well... here it is *cough* I guess 'over the weekend' has gained a rather liberal meaning at this point ;) Recently we posted about the updates to Reality Twist's fun physics title DaWindci, but more importantly our original review highlighted just how relaxing and absorbing the soundtrack is. Of course you could jump on to Bandcamp and listen to it one piece at a time, but we can do even better than that. Thanks to Reality Twist we have 10 codes to give away for a free copy of the entire soundtrack. For those following us on Twitter we'll have a message up shortly that you can retweet or if you'r…

Kairosoft's Hot Springs Story and Pocket Academy Now $1.99

If you're a frequent user of the App Store, you'll have noticed that it only takes a sniff of a special occasion for iPhone publishers to start slashing prices. With Thanksgiving quickly approaching in the US, Japanese developers Kairosoft have decided to offer both Hot Springs Story and Pocket Academy at the discounted price of $1.99. The latter of these titles tasks you with taking over a floundering school and turning it around by constructing new classrooms, forming extracurricular clubs, and attracting eager students to your revamped institute. Hot Springs Story, on the other hand, charges you with creating a relaxing spa, where teachers can come and unwind after a long day teach…

Update To Physics-Based Puzzler daWindci Floats Onto App Store

For the second time in three months, one of the great masters of the High Renaissance Leonardo da Vinci is about to receive a mention on these pages. They - whoever they may be - don't call AppSpy the 'most culturally enlightened iPhone site on the planet' for nothing, you know. With a clear nod to the esteemed Italian polymath, developers Reality Twist have designed a masterfully meditative physics-based puzzler for Apple's mobile by the name of daWindci. In essence, you must pilot a hot air balloon via the iPhone's multi-touch display through 45 separate levels, searching for valuable items and circumventing electric fields along your expeditions. Those already seduced by the combinati…

16 New Levels Available To Download In Cube-Puzzler Edge

If you'll pardon the pun, please, readers, developers of Edge Mobigame appear to be on a bit of a roll lately. Firstly, they finally obtained the trademark to the term 'Edge' in May after one of the longest and most bitter legal disputes in mobile gaming history. Secondly, they released Edge Extended, a pitch-perfect iPhone sequel to the aforementioned cube-shifting puzzler. It's good to see, however, that Mobigame haven't forgotten their roots throughout this purple patch, as the company have just issued an update to the isometric brainteaser Edge. For those of you who found the pace of the 48 levels that comprise the Edge Challenge too easygoing, news that 16 additional stages of great…
