Addictive Word Puzzler Quarrel Deluxe Reduced To 99c

Addictive Word Puzzler Quarrel Deluxe Reduced To 99c

(Apologies to all non-football fans and non-UK-based television viewers for the following important announcement.) When the news broke that Sky Soccer Saturday anchor Jeff Stelling had resigned from Channel 4 words and numbers quiz show Countdown, this particular writer was devastated. How would I recover? How could I continue? Pretty easily, as it happens, for I've become clinically addicted to Indiagames's Quarrel Deluxe almost overnight, and I no longer hum the Countdown theme tune in my sleep. I think. The reason my girlfriend has to surgically remove my fingers at 10pm from the iPhone touchscreen and the lure of Quarrel Deluxe? It combines two of my favourite things in the world (o…

Gameloft's Open-World Wild West Game Six-Guns Riding Into Town In the Autumn

After the fabulous news that one of Rockstar's most treasured franchises GTA is shooting onto iPhone later this autumn (in the form of GTA: III), another of the studio's beloved IP Red Dead Redemption is riding on into Apple town. Kinda. Gameloft's 'take' on Rockstar's open-world action-adventure game Six-Guns - the colloquial term for a six-chambered revolver, I'll have you know - will also be exploding onto iPhones across the land before the month of December. Yes, as in Red Dead Redemption, you'll be exploring every inch of the Wild West in Gameloft's forthcoming shooter. And, yes, as in Red Dead Redemption, you'll be galloping around these various bars, towns, and seedy nightspots on…

UPDATE: Since this story went live, Rockstar have confirmed that Grand Theft Auto III: 10th Anniversary Edition will be playable on older generations of the iPhone in the future. It'll also be available on the iPad 2 and various Android devices. (Original story follows...) Grand. Theft. Auto. III. iPhone.

iOS 5 For iPhone and iPad Brings iCloud, Notification Center, and AirPlay Mirroring

By the time you get around to reading this article, Apple's iOS 5 will probably be available to download. Here's what you'll be tinkering with after you finally install the highly anticipated software update. The biggest new addition in Apple's iOS 5 is Notification Center, which groups together your text messages, game pop-ups, Twitter mentions, and Facebook tags into one big hub. This can be accessed by simply swiping downwards from the top of your device's screen. iOS 5 also comes with Apple's iCloud, a service that wirelessly backs up and syncs your contacts, calendars, music, documents, and - most importantly - gaming data across your iOS devices. For fans of big-screen g…

Miniclip's Monster Island Gets Updated With 63 New Levels, 6 New Characters

Miniclip have treated Fragger-esque puzzler Monster Island to a rather substantial update, which adds 63 new levels to an already packed game. That means there are now 252 levels and four different worlds for you to blast through. The additions don't stop there, though, since the refresh also brings with it six brand-new characters. For those looking to upgrade their critters, too, a 'limited-time' in-game store sale allows you to grab the game's monsters at 50 percent off their normal asking price. Monster Island, which earned a 4/5 at review, charges you with destroying waves of mutant thugs by hurling a selection of different bombs at them. As your detonation skills imp…


Grab A Slice Of Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots On 20th October

Grab A Slice Of Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots On 20th October

Having written about one Best of 2010 iPhone game from an Australian developer only last week, we're turning the spotlight onto another App Store diamond cut Down Under. Halfbrick's Fruit Ninja finished 9th in our end-of-year rundown and shifted copies by the million - ten, to be precise - to voracious consumers worldwide, more than justifying the gamble the studio took when releasing the game exclusively on iOS devices. Now, the Aussie devs are set to take the Fruit Ninja franchise to the next level by jumping on the movie tie-in bandwagon, whose passengers already include Angry Birds Rio, Horrid Henry, and Doodle Jump: Hop. In collaboration with the makers of the forthcoming motion pict…

4-Player Split-Screen Mode Incoming In Real Racing 2 Via AirPlay Mirroring

To no great surprise whatsoever, Firemint's technically astounding Real Racing 2 roared onto AppSpy's round-up of 2010's best games in January. Improvements in the graphical, handling, and multiplayer departments were obvious even to the untrained eye, yet Real Racing 2's creators Firemint want to push the technological envelope further. One of the most intriguing - and potentially revolutionary - elements from a gaming perspective in the forthcoming iOS 5 software update is AirPlay Mirroring, which pipes content from an iPhone 4S onto a HD TV wirelessly. And Real Racing 2 will be one of the first iPhone titles to take advantage of this new feature once iOS 5 is made available to the publ…

A Moment of Silence For Steve Jobs

A Moment of Silence For Steve Jobs

Sometimes its hard to find the words in a situation like this - people like Steve Jobs are often distant to a degree that their passing is merely something to note. However, each day I go to work and even when I'm not at work, the legacy of this man's vision keeps me in touch; keeps me entertained; keeps me informed; and ultimately, has changed how I engage with the world around me. The fact that he has done this for so many others around the world as well only makes it all the more impactful. I have never been a PC or an Apple person - despite the intense feelings people have regarding their technology, I've always personally believed in picking the right tool for the problem at hand. At t…

Apple Unveils Dual-Core iPhone 4S With 8-Megapixel Camera

After numeorus rumours, assumptions, photographs, and more rumours, Apple has finally unveiled its new iPhone: the iPhone 4S.

The iPhone 4S will be available to pre-order thi…


Addictive Kairosoft Titles Grand Prix Story and Pocket Academy Slashed In Price For A Limited Time

Addictive Kairosoft Titles Grand Prix Story and Pocket Academy Slashed In Price For A Limited Time

Developer Kairosoft has decided to slash the price of two of its most addictive iPhone games for a limited time, meaning you feed your craving for a top management title for just $1.99. Grand Prix Story, which earned a 4/5 at review, sees you take the reins of an up-and-coming racing team, hire and fire drivers and mechanics, research new vehicles and parts, and secure profitable sponsorships.  Pocket Academy, on the other hand, gives you the rather less glamorous task of running your own school. Naturally, this involves handpicking teaching staff, constructing and rearranging classrooms, and performing the morally dubious duty of picking the week's 'hot couple'. It also man…
