Abra-Ca-Bacon update hitting Angry Birds Seasons May 16th

News By Harry Slater, 1 year, 5 months ago
Abra-Ca-Bacon update hitting Angry Birds Seasons May 16th

After yesterday's update to Bad Piggies the Angry Birds are getting their own back with new content for Angry Birds Seasons hitting the App Store next week. The Abra-Ca-Bacon update brings with it 30 new levels, as well as 6 secret levels to try and unlock, and a whole new way of killing pigs – portals. These magic tunnels suck fowl and debris in at one end before spitting it out somewhere else. Like the Portals in Portal, basically. But with pigs, birds, and crumbling lumps of masonry. It won't cost you anything to get all this extra content, and it'll go live on the App Store on May 16th. You can check out a trailer for the new goodies below.…


Bellyfish has an Addiction

Bellyfish has an Addiction

Also out this week is a little game called Bellyfish that looks kind of in the same wheelhouse as Doodle Jump. What makes me entertained by the premise is you play a fish who has become addicted to oxygen, and growing into a ball of air because of it. Due to the dangers of this addiction, you have to make sure the little guy can travel safely through all the obstacles present. Have a look at the trailer and see what we mean. It's a simple game, but looks to be enjoyable. [App Store Link]…


Dead Effect - A Sci-fi Horror FPS for iOS

Dead Effect - A Sci-fi Horror FPS for iOS

Man that's a lot of shorthand. Now I could be jaded and talk about the game wanting to be Dead Space, what with the 'lonely derelict vessel invaded by unknown horrors' vibe it's got going, but I have to say that watching the trailer kind of impressed me. Have a look... It seems to be a very competent entry into the genre with a high level of presentation. As long as the controls are halfway decent (as no developer has really worked out a way to get an FPS controlling well on iOS), this might be a great portable shooting experience.  Release date is slated somewhere in July or August.…


Dragons to Swarm

Dragons to Swarm

It's always interesting to see the genre trends on the App Store. Once one game makes it big, you have other devs either cashing in or looking to improve the formula. With the success of games like Galcon Labs and Tentacle Wars, Dragon Swarm has been released on the iPad. It's the same kind of strategy title... but with dragons! Have a look at the trailer. This title focuses on multiplayer matches, and it does look pretty nuts. The game got released this week so give it a pick up and tell us what you think if you are so inclined.[App Store Link]…


Bad Piggies gets a new update

Bad Piggies gets a new update

Rovio's Bad Piggies are at it again, with a content update that adds fifteen new levels, two new contraptions, a new sandbox, and a new replay function to the porcine based physics puzzler. The new tools at your disposal are suction cup tyres, which let you drive up walls, and spring loaded boxing gloves that allow you to power your pigs with some well placed punches. Perhaps the biggest draw of the update however is a new replay mode. Here you can record and share your favourite piggy escapades, showing friends across your favourite social networks just how brilliant your plans and contraptions are. The update is live right now on the App Store and it'll cost you nothing at all, which as…


Leviathan: Warships iPad Review

Review Paradox Interactive By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Leviathan: Warships iPad Review

Did anyone ever play any of the Combat Mission games? This question is being asked because if you have, you will immediately understand how the gameplay of Leviathan Warships by Paradox Interactive functions. While most strategy titles are put into sub-genres by whether their battles play out in real time or turn by turn, Leviathan Warships combines these by separating the turn based and real time play styles into a planning and execution phase. Unlike Combat Mission, the gameplay here…

FREEQ Review

Review Psychic Bunny By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
FREEQ Review

Radio drama is making a comeback. Before television, people used to listen to serialised programming on their wireless, tuning into tales of mystery, intrigue, drama, and action. Games like Freeq show that the medium is still as engaging as ever, but perhaps that's also due to the interactivity. See, not only content with telling you a story of apocalypse and time travel, Freeq has you making choices to influence the outcome of this future that has yet to be written. Freeqing is a tec…


The 10th of May is Carmageddon Day

The 10th of May is Carmageddon Day

Everyone's favourite over the top violent racing game is celebrating its release on the 10th of May. How is it celebrating you ask? By having 24 hours as a free app. That's right, if you don't own Carmageddon on iOS, on the 10th of May it will be free. How can you pass up such an offer? Well, if you're still on the fence about the game, check out our review from last year, and that should be enough to lean you in either direction. What other game has a 'cunning stunt bonus'?…

Augmented Reality Jenga

JengAR got release today on the App Store. Are you a fan of toppling tower board game Jenga? Do you own an iPad*? Do you find augmented reality interesting? If you answered "yes" to all those questions, JengAR might interest you. Have a look at the trailer! *The game is available for iPhone as well, but it looks to be much more interesting with the added screen space the iPad provides. And that name is just fun to say. Jengar! [App Store Link]…


Star Command Review

Review Star Command, LLC By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Star Command Review

Star Command has been on the radar for a few years now, being the result of two kickstarter campaigns (one before Double Fine made crowd-sourcing mainstream), and a lot of ambitious ideas. The game that has been released is a small section of the developers' original vision, and what was supposed to be a grand entry into the mobile 4x genre plays like an interesting take on games like Faster Than Light. Even though we're dealing with a smaller scope here, there's still a great experien…

Future Building in 2020: My Country - Available Now on the Appstore

Just hitting the App Store yesterday is 2020: My Country, a Simcity-esque game where you need to look after the denizens of the future, protecting them from hazards such as meteor showers and dinosaur. As a bonus, all the character faces are kind of unsettling and creepy looking, at least in my opinion. Have a look at the trailer, and if you like what you see, pick it up on the App Store.

Bastion on sale on the App Store

If you haven't played Supergiant Games's breathtakingly good looking RPG Bastion yet then you're running out of excuses because for a limited time it's available on the App Store for the ridiculously cheap price of 99c.

There's hours of game to sink your teeth into here, with ten upgradeable weapons to master, and more than forty gorgeous hand drawn environments for you to explore. So if you're after a challenging adventure that'll keep you pla…

Paper Titans Review

Review Blitz Games Studios Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
Paper Titans Review

It's rare, but every now and then a visual style for a game comes along that makes us say, “Huh, I wonder why no one has thought of that before”. Kirby's Epic Yarn is a good example, with its arts and crafts look that gave that game not only a unique visual vibe, but affected the mechanics as well. Paper Titans is one of these games, basing its entire visual style on the world of papercraft, and it pulls it off magnificently. Still, this is a game we're talking about, and i…
