Cave’s Arcade Shoot-‘Em-Up Bug Princess Arrives On App Store Tomorrow

Cave’s Arcade Shoot-‘Em-Up Bug Princess Arrives On App Store Tomorrow

Japanese shoot-'em-up developers Cave are bringing Bug Princess to the App Store tomorrow. Originally released in 2004 as Mushihimesama in Japan, this insect-themed shooter has been updated and optimised for the iPhone's touchscreen, while support for Game Center and OpenFeint means that you can compete for leaderboard dominance. Like Cave's other releases, Bug Princess's manic bullet-hell gameplay may not be for the faint of heart. Cave's previous efforts - ESPGALUDA II and Mushihimesama BUG PANIC - both scored a perfect 5/5 on AppSpy, however, so the company's reputation for delivering high-quality hardcore shmups precedes them. Bug Princess is already out on New Zealand's App Store, s…

Jelly Defense Receives New Levels and Leaderboards In Christmas Update

Christmas is almost here, and what better way to celebrate than with new levels for an iPhone tower defence title? Okay, so there are plenty of better ways to celebrate, but owners of Jelly Defense, which we awarded 4/5 in our review, will definitely want to help themselves to this free festive update for the game. The update adds two wintry levels of tower defence gameplay to the title and one endless level that promises to be a tough Christmas cookie. New leaderboards are also included, as well as a 'new and cozy' music track to accompany your campaign of Jelly warfare. Minor tweaks to gameplay and performance enhancements round out the package, while the mandatory difficulty hike that…

Tongue-Tied Brings Physics-Based Platforming To iPhone On 15th December

Tongue Tied, the intriguing debut iPhone title from Mojo Bones, will be released on December 15th. In this physics-platformer, you play as Mick and Ralph, a pair of unfortunate pooches who find themselves in an unusual predicament. Yes, they're tongue tied. That is to say, they have been tied together by their long elasticated tongues. Your task, then, is to guide these canine chums through 50 challenging levels - in search of the 'Wonderbone' - by stretching and firing them at the most appropriate moments. Game Center support, a variety of unlockables, and tons of perilous obstacles combine to form quite the comprehensive package. Tongue Tied will be available from the App Store this…

First Touch Games's director, Charles Chapman, promises this about the new game: Improved visuals, gameplay, and loads more. Dream League Soccer as a free to play game is a new direction for us, and something we're excited about. It's not a demo, or a cut down version of another game, it's all…

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

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…

Angry Birds Rio Gets 15 New Levels In Smugglers' Plane Update

Throughout the course of Rovio's Angry Birds Rio, we've followed the franchise's famous birds through jungles, across beaches, and over airfields. Thanks to another update to this bestselling game, the fiery's fowls' journey has been extended by another 15 levels. This new epsiode - which is entitled Smugglers' Plane - also features a fresh selection of golden fruit to seek out and collect. And if you're at all familiar with the physics-based title, you'll know that these are rarely found in plain sight. You can, of course, still use the Mighty Eagle to easily blast through any levels that prove to be a tad tricky, providing you've splashed out on the 99c in-app purchase. You can grab R…
