Update for Worms 2: Armageddon

News By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 5 months ago
Update for Worms 2: Armageddon

One of the most requested additions to Worms 2: Armageddon has been asynchronous play, or the ability to enjoy more than one game of Worms at the same time (like a Draw Something or Words with Friends). Well the latest update adds this into the mix! Now you can play against your friends (or use the game center auto-match option) to be able to play up to sixteen simultaneous games. Perfect for those who can't get enough squirmy, wormy action. Our review of the the original release of the game can be found [here].…

Min: A Space Adventure arriving June 18th

Cwerki Studios is about to release their debut game, Min: A Space Adventure on June 18th, and we here at Appspy would like to tell you a little about it beforehand. You are tasked with travelling to the centre of planets to extract energy from their cores. It's a game of exploration and upgrades. Have a look at the launch trailer. The gameplay starts at about 0:34. As you can see the visuals and music have had a lot of polish put into them, and hopefully exploring these planets is as fun as it looks. With an emphasis on unlocking planets, upgrading, and time trails for leaderboards, the fact that this game will be free on release is a little worrying (as we've seen the freemium s…

Hands On Preview For Squids Wild West

Hands On Preview For Squids Wild West

It has been a while since we've had a Hands On Preview, but The Game Bakers have been kind enough to set us up with a preview version of the game and we couldn't help ourselves. As mentioned previously in our News Wrap-Up, Wild West puts the adventuring heroes of the first Squids game in to a psuedo-Western environment, complete with all new characters based around this theme. Two of these characters, Calamary Jane and Cleef are featured in the Preview, and while they may be 'Shooters' just like Clint, the base stats are significantly different, with Cleef even featuring a signature 'double shot' to make up for his significantly weaker attacks. Thanks to the new 'compare' option,…

Trailer for Bug Princess 2: Black Label Released

Fans of vertical shooters, and CAVE's previous iPhone and iPad offerings should be delighted to watch this trailer for the upcoming Bug Princess 2: Black Label. Aside from being full of bullets, bullets, and even more bullets, it looks like there's plenty of features that fans of these games should love (the ability to slow down time to recreate the arcade lag effects was a highlight personally). The greatest addition being a boss rush mode, featuring the bosses from this game, and the previous Bug Princess as well, where the player is graded on their performance and ranked online. The app store can always use more high quality action games, so i'm definitely looking forward to g…


This game gives 'button masher' a whole new meaning

This game gives 'button masher' a whole new meaning

Button mashers often have a bad reputation in games due to controller wear and the feeling that it's a cheap gimmick used to prolong gameplay because the developer couldn't think of anything more clever. It's rare though that not only would a game make button mashing look interesting, but that it would base its core mechanic around it. The Wunderlich brothers and their company RAWR! Interactive are releasing Count to a Billion, where you have ninety seconds to tap furiously on multiple multiplier pads in order to reach that elusive number. This trailer will explain it better than i could... The game is due for release in July, and should be a unique experience if nothing else. In…

More info on Forma8

Having recieved a press release from Mixed Bag studios, we're happy to give you more information on Forma8. Here's the background of the story: "In a distant future, on an alien planet, a small exploration probe called forma.8 has a mission to accomplish: he needs to find something before it's too late. Your mission is vague, the planet is big, you got parted away from your companion by an accidental event, and you just know you have to delve deeper and deeper below the planet surface.  But not everything is like it seems. Ancient civilisations, great perils and dystopian visions await you..." Boasting an intuitive control scheme that plays to the strengths of the platform, th…

E3 Trailer for upcoming physics puzzler, Jumpster

G5 and Vogat are showing off their new physics puzzle game Jumpster this week with a brand new trailer. Take a look for yourself: While it looks to use the same physics flinging formula that so many games have adopted in the wake of the success of Angry Birds, the video showcases not only a vibrant alien world, but interesting mechanics like portals and UFOs. The game is slated for release in July so keep on the lookout for our review.…


First Look: Forma8

First Look: Forma8

This is truly a first look. More information on this mobile adventure game should drop this week at E3 (and we have contacted the developer for additional info), but for now all we have are all the screenshots available over at their site. What strikes me is the evocative alien landscapes, that are quite reminiscent of Another World. If this game is drawing their main inspiration from that cinematic platforming classic, we should also expect a clean user interface, situational controls, and a load of atmosphere. We'll present you with more on this title as details are revealed to us. [Forma.8 Website - Forma.8 Facebook]…

Pocket God Episode 45 - Dance Dance Execution

Who would have thought that all these years later, Pocket God would still be getting amusing and entertaining updates? For those of you that wanted more dancing with your pygmys, the latest update includes a Dance Dance Revolution mini-game. Failure leads to death by disco ball so you'd best have your finger rhythm down pat (unless you wish to suck up some helium and hear sound clips from the infamous David after Dentist youtube video). The latest episode of the Pocket God youtube series will show off not only the new game, but the new in-app purchases of sweet dance moves and theme song by Parry Gripp.…

Fluid Physics-Puzzler Feed Me Oil Currently Free To Download

Chillingo's top-notch physics-puzzler Feed Me Oil is currently available free of charge, marking the first time the game's been discounted since its June 2011 release. Taking aesthetic inspiration from 2D Boy's superb World of Goo, Feed Me Oil has you placing barriers and objects in order to steer liquid oil around each of its surreal stages. 'Why am I doing that?' you might reasonably ask. Well, it's because each level contains a nightmarish monster, and it's your job to feed the beastie its liquid lunch. Obviously. If that sounds odd, that's probably because Feed Me Oil is an odd game, but it's also smart, challenging, and blessed with some fantastically fluid physics. It may wear its…

Republique - Reaches Kickstarter Goal!With the last few months being an absolute minefield of developers trying to self-fund projects, it's hard to separate the wheat from the chaff. In the least there's no harm in putting money down on something you think you'll enjoy and Republique is just such a project. Despite the limited demonstration of what's on offer in the game's unique adventure-esque title, it's clear this isn't your ordinary throw-away Arcade title and definitely something the iOS platform deserves.…
