Let's Play A Little 'Guess Gameloft's Next FPS On iPhone' Game

Let's Play A Little 'Guess Gameloft's Next FPS On iPhone' Game

Hello, reader. I want to play a game. So far in what could loosely be called your gaming life, you've spent an eternity reading other people's blogs. Society would call you an observer, a watcher, a compliant cog. Anyways, enough of that freaky horror material... What I'd really like you to do today is speculate: speculate on the identity of the Gameloft shooter pictured below. This image of a cluster of bullets in front of a military dog tag was teased by the French development studio this afternoon via its Twitter feed. Not a huge amount to go on, I grant you. But there's a little more... Join the resistance for just $0.99. So, as I said - don your thinking cap, dust off your dete…


Battlefield 3: Aftershock For iPhone To Be Showcased At Gamescom

Battlefield 3: Aftershock For iPhone To Be Showcased At Gamescom

Select members of the press will soon get their beady eyes on EA's upcoming FPS Battlefield 3: Aftershock on iPhone for the first (proper) time, as it's shown off by its makers at Gamecom in Cologne. Whilst little is known about the iOS version itself right now, past experience would lead us to expect it’ll involve guns. Lots of guns. The previous Battlefield iteration on iPhone, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, secured 4 stars from our Andrew, so here's hoping its successor can go one better in the autumn. We presume Battlefield 3: Aftershock will launch on Apple's App Store around October 25th, simply because that's the due date for the home console version. As always, though, w…

iBlast Moki 2 Exploding Onto iPhone This Thursday

What's the one thing better than an awesome iPhone game being on sale for a limited time? Nope, not that, you dirty boy. The one thing better than an awesome iPhone game being on sale, natch, is the news that a follow-up to an awesome iPhone game is in development. And what's the one thing better than an awesome i... Okay, I'll stop that now. Godzilab's cutesy physics-based puzzler iBlast Moki smashed onto the App Store almost two years ago, so we at AppSpy felt it was about time for a sequel to explode all over iTunes. Luckily, Godzilab agreed with our sentiment, and have pencilled in 18th August (aka 'this Thursday') as the launch date for iBlast Moki 2. To prepare AppSpy readers for…

Enigmatic Puzzler Hard Lines Slithers Down To Zero

If you haven't had the funds / inclination to relive those glory days of 'Snake on a brick' via the hilarious Hard Lines on iPhone, you're in luck, boyo. The reason is simple: Hard Lines's creators Spilt Milk Studio have teamed up with FreeAppADay to make their enigmatic little puzzler, well, free. Now, it's not often that an iPhone game we award the full five stars to drops to sweet FA in price, so do not hesitate. Read my fingers - Do. Not. Hesitate. In Hard Lines, you're presented with three different control methods (I prefer Swipey), six different modes (I prefer Time Attack), and all manner of caustic quips (I haven't got a preference) from the differently coloured AI 'snakes'. Yo…

Zelda and Mario Kart Possibly En Route To iPhone?

Well, there's a headline I bet you thought you'd never see. Under pressure from its investors and feeling the pinch from a recent tough fiscal quarter, Nintendo may - and we can't stress MAY enough here - be considering developing games for the iPhone, according to Bloomberg. Despite the 3DS maker's president Saturo Iwata stating on record that Ninty will never produce titles for rival platforms during his tenure, money talks, and Apple by comparison have almost got a licence to print money at present. If the venerable Japanese video game company fails to demonstrate it has the wherewithal and ingenuity for a long-term battle with Apple's increasingly popular portable devices, then it may…

Gameloft’s Freemium Game Let’s Golf! 3 Swings Onto App Store

Gameloft planted themselves firmly on the App Store green with their impressive golf game Let’s Golf 2. Now, Tiger Woods wannabes can start getting excited again, as Let’s Golf! 3 has just driven up the fairway and onto iPhone. Professional swingers can create their own virtual golfing avatar in Let's Golf! 3 with which to chip and putt their way through six 3D locations, including The Great Wall of China. You can tee off against up to three other players, though you won't be able to virtually wrap your club around a tree in anger when you hit nothing but tree. Because Let's Golf! 3 is a free-to-play download, we seriously recommend your downloading it straightaway. If you fi…

Legendary Management Sim Theme Park Heading To iPhone Later This Year

Following the release of golden oldies Dragon's Lair 2 and James Pond in recent months on iPhone, another bona fide veteran of the gaming scene is preparing to debut on Apple's mobile platform. Those of you over 20 will recall most of your free time in the mid-'90s being eaten up by one particular management sim. Those of you under 20 will soon discover what that felt like. Yes, Bullfrog's seminal amusement park build-'em-up Theme Park is riding into the App Store fairground later this year. Theme Park on iPhone will be published by video game goliath Electronic Arts, who acquired Bullfrog Productions in 1995. It's, therefore, in the best possible hands. We hope. As for Theme Park's gam…

Tough-As-Leather 2D Platformer Meganoid Updated With New Levels

The humble iPhone is undoubtedly home to some of the hardest titles around, including bullet-hell shooter Dodonpachi Resurrection and retro gem League of Evil. Meganoid is another to add to that ever-growing list of tough nuts to crack. OrangePixel's game is a 2D platformer reminiscent of the aforementioned League of Evil in both its old skool aesthetic and its hair-tearing, fist-eating difficulty curve. Now, the sadists among you can leap and die over 90 stages in the game's moderately difficult Hero mode, or test your stress glands over 80 levels in the rage-inducing Sarge mode. There’s also the option to plunge to your doom backwards through the first 50 levels of the game via t…

Freemium Strategy Title Kard Combat Gets New Mages, Modes In Update

Canadian developer Hothead Games may be causing something of a stir on the App Store with its baby-punting Kickin Momma game, but that doesn’t mean its freemium strategy game Kard Combat has been forgotten. Kard Combat has just received an update, giving players four new mages (Demon, Chaos, Deception, and Arcane) to choose from and a pair of new game modes - Challenge and Timed. The graphics have also been tarted up slightly in this 4/5 AppSpy rated game, while the obligatory bug fixes have been made. Though the game itself is free to play, there is a full unlock option, which will set you back $9.99. Fancy a hand?…

100,000 Likes On Facebook = RAGE HD Free For A Week

And there we were thinking that French publisher Gameloft is the only studio that relishes giving something back to its loyal fandom. How wrong we could be. Over on id Software's RAGE Facebook page, the creators of pioneering first-person shooters Doom and Quake have teamed up with RAGE HD's developer on iPhone Bethesda to run a fascinating promotion. Once this particular page has been 'Liked' 100,000 times on Zuckerberg's social network, RAGE HD will be made available for free for one week. At the time of going to press, 48,031 folks have officially declared themselves interested in this freebie deal - thus, there's still some way to go before we pass the RAGE HD threshold. As for RAGE…

She's just a small town girl, living in a lonely world; She took the midnight train... Just one of the tens of tens of classic pop anthems the cast of Fox TV phenomenon Glee has reinterpreted / mutilated over the past two seasons. And now, iPhone gamers get the chance to tap along in time to their heart's content to these 'Gleeful' reinterpretations / mutilations of Lady Gaga's and Journey's hits.

Get Puzzle Agent and Its Sequel For iPhone On the Cheap

Telltale Games’s well-regarded Puzzle Agent adventure series has been slashed in price on iPhone until 11th August, with the most recent of the two games also spruced up via an update. The first Puzzle Agent wasn’t half bad at all, earning itself a 4 out of 5 badge here on AppSpy In the sequel, players retake the reins of detective Nelson Tethers, pointing, clicking, and sleuthing their way around the village of Scoggins. Whilst the game has received the obligatory tweaks and refinements in this latest update, it has also been made compatible with the iPhone 3G, meaning those too tight / poor to own an current-gen Apple mobile can also get in on the puzzle-solving action.
