Review FDG Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 5 months ago
Slayin Review

If there's one constant about a lot of iPhone gameplay, it's taking an established genre or game type, and streamlining it as much as possible, to create ultimate accessibility, as well as perhaps a gateway into the genre at hand. Due to the obsession over the last few years of adding RPG leveling mechanics to everything, your average iOS gamer should be quite familiar with the adrenaline rush that accompanies leveling up a character and becoming more powerful. Slayin' tries to take th…

Dungeon Hunter 4 hits the App Store

Dungeon Hunter 4 hits the App Store

The last instalment of the Dungeon Hunter franchise, Dungeon Hunter 3, split fans of the series. Some loved it, others found the new freemium model cloying and unpleasant. Well, Dungeon Hunter 4 is here now, and it's still a free to play title. There is promise, however. Gameloft is offering an epic storyline and plenty of areas to smash, slash, and steal your way through. There are four classes of brawler to choose from, each of which is upgradeable and customisable. If that's not enough for you there's also co-op arenas where you and a friend can battle it out against hordes of demonic scum, and a PvP mode that lets you show how much better your axe is than everyone else's. The game wil…


Gun Commando: Old School FPS Coming to iOS this Month

Gun Commando: Old School FPS Coming to iOS this Month

A game that not only evokes memories of the early days of FPS through its presentation and movement, but has a bit of interesting mechanic in that better weapons are tied to chaining kills on enemies together. Have a look at the trailer for the original Vita release. If the touch controls work well, those looking for a fast paced FPS throwback should enjoy Gun Commando. We'll let you know when a release date is announced aside from just 'sometime in April'.…


Cosmic Conquest

Cosmic Conquest

Sort of a faster paced Galcon or Tentacle Wars, Cosmic Conquest has an interesting visual style and simple touch interface that looks like we might have another winner when it comes to iOS real time strategy titles. Have a look at the trailer and see what we mean. You'll have to wait a little while, it's not releasing till the 25th of April. We'll let you know more then.…


'The Prey' is 'Into the Dead'... with Wolves!

News By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
'The Prey' is 'Into the Dead'... with Wolves!

Last year's Into the Dead, while not a revolutionary game, managed to make an impression with its atmospheric presentation and smooth gameplay. When any game makes an impression, you'll see other studios wanting to tackle the idea in their own way (some veering closer to cloned gameplay than others). The Prey takes this gameplay idea and sets it in a frozen forest as you try and outrun a pack of hungry wolves. Obviously the title and the setting is a play on last year's 'The Grey' starring Liam Neeson, but it does look like it could be enjoyable, if just for the change of scenery. The game was just released on the App Store.[App Store Link]…


No IAPs in XCOM for iOS

No IAPs in XCOM for iOS

A week or so ago we told you about the upcoming release of XCOM: Enemy Unknown for iPad. Well, some more details have come out about the game, including the developer's stance on adding IAPs to the game. It's fair to say, a lot of you are going to be breathing a sigh of relief. In an interview with IGN, co-creatore Jake Solomon was pretty emphatic in rubbishing the idea of an Xcom game funded by micro transactions. "Oh God, please... no. I'm not sure I would be able to sleep at night. My food would taste like ashes in my mouth." “We're going to be offering XCOM at a premium, up-front, fair price. We're excited to be in this position and excited to see how people respond. We've proven…

Want To Test Games? The Game Bakers Needs You

That's right, The Game Bakers are getting more than their fair share of French speaking testers for their upcoming title 'Combo Crew' (which is no surprise as they are also French), but they need a bit more of a balance so they're seeking English speaking testers as well. Getting on board couldn't be easier - just check out their beta page and apply directly via email. If the concept images and this snippet of teaser footage doesn't have you running to try it out early, I don't know what will! [Combo Crew Beta Testers Needed] [Combo Crew FB Page]…


Injustice: Gods Among Us Review

Review Warner Bros. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 5 months ago
Injustice: Gods Among Us Review

I have to admit, I like the idea of a company taking the time to whet the appetite of their fans by providing a portable version of a title they're yet to release. We saw it back at the release of Mass Effect 3, and now we're seeing it again with Injustice: Gods Among Us from Warner Bros. Of course any expectations of such a title being brought over in full, or at least as a complete brawler (albeit with a lowered roster ala Street Fighter's iOS releases) have been completely shot dow…

Animales de la Muerte returns as Zoombies

By Harry Slater, 1 year, 5 months ago
Animales de la Muerte returns as Zoombies

Animales de la Muerte started life as a top down shooter destined for Wiiware, but things don't always go the way people plan. Developed by the maker of Wii sci-fi blaster The Conduit, High Voltage, the game was cancelled due to Nintendo's file size restrictions and apparently disappeared without trace. Now though it's back, minus the top down shooting and with a new name - Zoombies: Animales de la Muerte - some touch screen friendly controls thrown in, and making its way to the App Store. The theme is still the same though; zombies animals have overrun a zoo and you need to stop them from taking over the world. Whereas in the original game you were running around with a machine gun, now y…


Duke Nukem 2 Review

Duke Nukem 2 Review

Every now and then you have to give the marketing department of a company their dues. When Interceptor Entertainment decided to bring the PC classic Duke Nukem 2 to the iOS platform, they opted to keep changes to a minimum, and as such their 'Key Features' list amusing entries such as 'insane VGA graphics' and '256 eye popping colors'. However, as amusing as it is, without some sort of attempt to meet modern gamers half way, this old-school side-scrolling shooter/platformer is only rea…

Brain Twirler set to uh... Twirl your Brain?

Brain Twirler set to uh... Twirl your Brain?

This interesting looking puzzle game is set for release on the 11th of April. It is one of those really no frills experiences, as the screenshot and upcoming trailer will show you, but the gameplay looks engaging enough to forgive that, at least where puzzle games are concerned. Though it does bring up an interesting point. If your core gameplay is engaging enough, there's no excuse for lackluster presentation. I mean this doesn't even have music (at least in the trailer). While gameplay is arguably the most important aspect of a videogame, presentation is important too. It doesn't have to be spectacular, but at least make an effort.…

Master of Alchemy - Vengeance Front Review

Isn't it interesting what sort of ideas can be turned into tropes in a specific genre? By now everyone has played some version of that puzzle mechanic where you guide the path of a laser with angled mirrors. Likewise, most of you have probably played the game where you have to guide the droplets into a vat through the use of angled barriers. Master of Alchemy: Vengeance Front is a new version of that, complete with steampunky contraptions and reverse gravity. Each level starts with a…

Robi: Cosmic Savior Review

Review GramGames By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Robi: Cosmic Savior Review

In a lot of these planetary defense games, there's a real sense of scope and responsibility. You're responsible for the continued existence of a planet beset either by aliens or asteroids (or alien controlled asteroids). Robi: Cosmic Saviour takes a more relaxed approach... in theory. His size plus the layout of the planet makes you think that this little robot lives peacefully out on some small moon, but his home is constantly under siege by space monsters. This is where the peaceful…

App Wrap Up (Week Ending 5th April, 2013) - iPad Edition

App Wrap Up (Week Ending 5th April, 2013) - iPad Edition

Heya and hola dear readers. Over my time writing these App Wrap Ups, I have collected trailers for alternate versions of the article. Primarily it's focus is on iPhone games, but there are a host of iPad only games as well that get overlooked, and seeing as I have no iPhone trailers to work with this week, I thought I'd dig out out some of these links. Now especially for this first iPad segment, the trailers I'm about to show you are from last year, and some date back to at least mid 2012. This shouldn't matter because an interesting game is an interesting game, but I just thought I'd let you know. Ok then, let's look at some trailers for iPad only titles!   Octacube (Eyal revivo)…
