Exclusive Screenshots of ScooterBoy from Modka Games

Exclusive Screenshots of ScooterBoy from Modka Games

Industry veteran Chris Blackbourn has branched out from his star-studded career of working with major developers and has teamed up with artist Christian Bravery to form the Indie studio Modka Games. First off the block is an endless runner style title called 'ScooterBoy' where the player needs to swipe to go faster. So far the game is looking pretty sharp and with any luck we'll pick up some more footage of the game after they've demonstrated the game at GDC. For now check out some exclusive screenshots and a teaser demonstrating some of the artwork in motion via background parallaxing. Via Modka Games and Modka Games Facebook Page…


Mighty Dungeons iOS Port

News By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Mighty Dungeons iOS Port

When viewing the trailer of Mighty Dungeons, it starts off looking like a generic iOS RPG, the kind we've seen a hundred times before... but then as you start to watch the gameplay, nostalgia struck me. The way the map is laid out, and the way you travel through it reminds me of days spent playing the board game Hero Quest. This alone makes the game worth a play for me, and it should scratch that dungeon crawler itch for other RPG fans as well. The Android version is currently out, and the iOS version should be released soon, but no definitive date as of yet.…


Chopper Mike Releasing this Thursday

Chopper Mike Releasing this Thursday

Former SEGA Employee who goes by VAMflax is releasing his own game on the iOS this Thursday called Chopper Mike. It's a gem collecting helipcopter obstacle course that looks kind of banal in the trailer until the red sections kick in about halfway through... As long as the controls are tight enough to allow for the manoevering shown in the trailer, this should be quite enjoyable as you weave through the pillars in the shortest time possible.…


Plasma Sky hits the App Store

Plasma Sky hits the App Store

If you like your bullet hell shooters to be retro tinged, neon coloured, and full of explosive power ups, then today is your lucky day, because Plasma Sky has blasted its way on to the App Store and it's looking pretty sweet. With eighty levels to blast your way through, the game offers plenty of content, as well as some gorgeous graphics that ape the look of classics such as Geometry Wars. Throw in some huge bosses and a hardcore mode and you're left with a pretty impressive package. There are two control choices, either tilt or touch, and leaderboards to creep your way up in order to show your friends you're the king of bullets, hell, and shooting. Which is exactly the sort of thing we l…


NightSky™ Review

Review Nicalis, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 5 months ago
NightSky™ Review

It's amazing how controls can affect a game. Dave played Nightsky on the PC, and while using the arrow keys to move the orb was adequate, there was something lacking, and the whole experience didn't really leave a lasting impression. Now we have the iOS port, and with the addition of tilt controls (as well as other options), this atmospheric simple physics journey starts to really shine. The game starts with the player finding a mysterious orb on the beach. As you would, he takes the…

Ridiculous Fishing - A Tale of Redemption Review

Review Vlambeer By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Ridiculous Fishing - A Tale of Redemption Review

Ridiculous Fishing is kind of the iOS gaming equivalent of a super group. It's created by Super Crate Box's Vlambeer, Unify and Bit Pilot's Zach Gage, and Greg Wohlwend of Hundreds fame. Quite a team for a simple little game about fishing, but then Ridiculous Fishing isn't really about fishing, it's about redemption. If that premise sounds a little ridiculous to you, I think that's the point. We've played this type of 2D fishing game before. You cast your line with a tap, and then it…

App Wrap Up (Week ending 15th March, 2013)

App Wrap Up (Week ending 15th March, 2013)

Hey hey readers, and welcome to your favourite regular feature on Appspy, the App Wrap Up! We got a bunch of new trailers for you of games you might have missed but look like they have something interesting to offer. Without further ado, let us begin!   Sling it! (Greg Lobanov) Not only does this game have a delightful collection of sound effects, but it's a novel use of the flinging mechanic. As long as it's easy to switch between moving around the screen and slingshotting the enemies, this could be a lot of fun.[App Store Link]   oOo (mELTINGsKYsTUDIOS) The trailer really doesn't give you a good idea of what the gameplay entails, but it looks relaxing, and I like how it…


Keep rolling, rolling, rolling, rolling

Keep rolling, rolling, rolling, rolling

There have been a few games that look to take up the mantle of Marble Madness / Super Monkey Ball esque gameplay. With the tilt functionality on the iPhone, you think there'd be a lot more. Ah well, Mazement is releasing on April 4th and has you rolling around, navigating labyrinths, and freeing your brethren. Have a look at the trailer.…


Towelfight 2: The Monocle of Destiny Review

Towelfight 2: The Monocle of Destiny Review

There you are, spending a quiet day with your monocle and your pug, when suddenly a temporal rift opens up, whisking you away to a world where one God is planning on using you to overthrow his rival and thus take control of the land once again. In exchange for your help, he'll send you back home. Towel Fight 2: The Monocle of Destiny doesn't take itself too seriously, which you'd expect of a game where your primary attack is using your enchanted monocle to hurl animals to their doom.…

Sushi Mushi Review

Review Aspyr Media, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 5 months ago
Sushi Mushi Review

Some game names are just fun to say, whether you put on a silly accent or not. Sushi Mushi is such a game. Of course a fun name doesn't necessarily translate into a fun to play game, but that's of course why we have this review. So what is Sushi Mushi? It's a match-3 game that works on two levels, where you roll as much sushi as possible to feed your gluttonous yet cute little monster, who rises through the ranks of sushi roller until you get to the prestigious black belt. Oh, and it's…

Badlands gets a release date

Badlands gets a release date

Frogmind Games's gorgeous looking physics based sort-of-a-platformer Badlands has been given a release date and a brand new gameplay trailer. You can check out the trailer at the end of the story, and as for the release date you can expect the game at the start of next month. April the 4th to be precise, which just misses the projected release date we had of “March”, but only by four days, so we guess we can forgive Frogmind. Especially if Badlands plays half as good as it looks. Described by the dev as a side-scrolling action adventure, the game sees you leading a blob through a variety of traps and hazards. Multiplayer modes are included, which look like frantic races through…

Dice game set to get you in a Tizzy

Cause the game is called TiZ. It looks to be a match-3 game that has the random element of dice rolls thrown in. With multiplayer as well, this could be an intereting play. Have a look at the trailer. The game drops tomorrow on the 15th.…


PWN: Combat Hacking slices onto the App Store

PWN: Combat Hacking slices onto the App Store

PWN: Combat Hacking is a strategy game with a difference. Rather than battling it out over digitally realised terrain with little tanks and soldiers, you're fighting against firewalls and other security in an attempt to break into a secure server. Your weapons here are viruses and trojans, and the nodes you're trying to capture are actual nodes rather than places on a battlefield where terrifying monsters spawn. The whole game looks gorgeous, with a stylish cyberpunk aesthetic that should at the very least keep your eyes interested for a while. “I’ve always loved those ludicrously fake hacking scenes that you see in movies, and it seemed like the perfect premise for a video gam…


Super Stickman Golf 2 Review

Review Noodlecake Studios Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 5 months ago
Super Stickman Golf 2 Review

When we first encountered Super Stickman Golf by Noodlecake Studios it was hard to keep our joy contained. At its core the game was a by-the-numbers 2D golfing title, however the clever addition of power-ups that required skill to obtain, and added even more depth and gameplay options once obtained made it a solid gold title. Super Stickman Golf 2 has a huge legacy to live up to, and while the core once again remains the same, it's the small details that continue to keep the series run…

Outland Games Review

Review Uber Entertainment, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Outland Games Review

Outland Games is a continuation of the world set up in Uber Entertainment's team based competitive multiplayer frag fest Monday Night Combat. I guess winning that particular game nets you a one way ticket to the outlands as a reward. It's not freedom per say, but another chance at freedom, this time in the form of an endless runner (so no, freedom is an impossibility). How does it stack up in this oversaturated genre? Let's find out. Your character is equipped with a double jump and a…
