Grab Pixel Cup Soccer 2016 for free ahead of the Olympic Games Rio 2016 football finals

As the Premier League season reaches its second weekend and the Rio Olympics soccer tournament finals approach, it was a smart idea for Apple to choose one of the best mobile footy games of recent times as its Free App of the Week. You won't find real player names and likenesses or realistic ball physics in Pixel Cup Soccer 2016. Rather, it's been inspired by the pre-FIFA generation of footy games. These games were interested in fast-paced, arcadey gameplay over providing a precise simulation of the beautiful game. Many people would say they were all the better for it. Close control All we know in the here and now is that Pixel Cup Soccer 2016 is a blast to play on iPhone and iPad. The c…

Legend of the Skyfish and 5 more iOS games that remind us of Zelda

Legend of the Skyfish is a bright new iOS adventure game from Crescent Moon Games and Mgaia Studios, and it obviously owes a debt to Nintendo's Zelda series. It can be seen in the game's whimsical art style, top-down adventuring, and quirky fairytale lore. Even the protagonist's signature tool/weapon is reminiscent of the hook shot Link so often wields in the Zelda series. This isn't the first iOS game to take inspiration from Nintendo's iconic action-RPG. There are been plenty of tributes, both explicit and subtle. Here are five of best and most obvious Zelda-like games on iOS. Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas There's no getting away from it. Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas…

Why Deus Ex GO is a better mobile game than Deus Ex: The Fall

Why Deus Ex GO is a better mobile game than Deus Ex: The Fall

Deus Ex GO is out now, and it's nothing like Deus Ex: The Fall or, by extension, the Deus Ex series it's spun off from. But it's undoubtedly the better mobile game. Starting out life on PC before working their way to consoles, the Deus Ex games are complex first person actions games that tend to offer you multiple routes to success through their dystopian sci-fi worlds. 2013's Deus Ex: The Fall attempted to bring that formula over to mobile, with a surprising degree of success. It looked (and still looks) stunning, and managed to nail the key elements of the full Deus Ex: Human Revolution game, right down to the first person perspective. All in all, it's a highly entertaining game and sti…

Ruins Ahead - Crossy Road meets Monument Valley?

Ruins Ahead - Crossy Road meets Monument Valley?

Crossy Road caused a massive splash when it landed in 2014, leading to a whole raft of (generally inferior) imitators. Ruins Ahead presents just enough of a spin on proceedings to make for an interesting alternative. And we mean that last bit quite literally. You're still tapping to make your chunky little hero scoot forward in a blocky, isometric world. By here you're doing so on a precariously suspended path. Swipe left or right and you won't hop to your doom, but will rotate the path itself, opening up a new route. This gives the game the slightest hint of puzzliness. It's a more considered, less frantic game than Crossy Road, which may well appeal more to certain easily-harried types.…

Bargain iOS game deal of the day: Little Galaxy goes free

Little Galaxy is currently available for free on iOS. If you haven't played this addictive arcade gem yet, now is the perfect time to make the jump. The iOS App Store is brimming over with high quality games, with prices that often fluctuate wildly.

Diffission and 5 more educational games that are actually fun to play

To many kids, education is not fun. Games are fun. So when you mention the term 'educational games,' it can yield a mixed response. That's not helped by the number of woeful educational games that have been released over the years, which often make only a token attempt at instilling actual fun into proceedings. It needn't be this way, though, as iOS games such as the newly released Diffission go to show. This is a slick puzzler in its own right, with polished presentation that reminds us of Splice and a slice-to-divide premise that recalls classic puzzler Slice It. And yet at heart it's teaching players all about fractions. There's even an EDU version to help teachers monitor their st…

Ketchapp Summer Sports is the perfect between-events snack for the Olympic Games Rio 2016

There's still plenty of exciting action left in the Rio 2016 Olympics, and we reckon we've found the perfect game to fill the gaps in between events: Ketchapp Summer Sports. We're ten days into the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, and we've already seen some stunning performances in the pool, on the tennis court, and for the first time in more than a century, on the golf course. Of course, it's the track and field events that are perhaps the most iconic of the lot. We've already witnessed Usain Bolt making history with his fourth consecutive 100m gold, and watched in exhausted awe as Jessica Ennis-Hill and Nafissatou Thiam battled for gold in the heptathlon. Fortunately there's plenty left to g…

Hit anime Evangelion inspires Unison League’s new update

Unison League was released onto mobile platforms last year, and has been keeping players busy since with its blend of RPG and real-time battling. You create and customise your very own hero, forge a guild with other players and take on monsters in fierce fights around the troubled land of Granvia. Now there’s fresh content to get RPG and anime fans excited – a crossover with Evangelion. The anime franchise took Japan by storm in the 90s, and the recent Rebuild Evangelion films have kept the passion alive. Unison League and Evangelion may seem like unlikely bedfellows, but both have a quintessential Japanese aesthetic, and include a band of heroes taking on monsters to save human…

Can't find new Pokemon in Pokemon GO? Check out these Pokemon tracking apps

It's been around a month since Pokemon GO first rolled out, people still seem to be obsessed with the game. We're guessing there are plenty who are struggling to locate fresh Pokemon now, which might mean they need a helping hand. The trouble is, Niantic have hit Pokemon GO players with a bit of a double whammy. Not only did they respond to the broken Pokemon tracking feature by removing it altogether, but they also banned access to their data for a number of reliable third party tracking tools, such as PokeVision. There are still some Pokemon tracking tools out there, though they're of varying quality and usefulness. Here's a run-down of four of them. We should note that none of these ap…

Journey Below - 7 classic retro iOS games from Ravenous Games

Journey Below hits the App Store this week, and its retro-arcade trappings may not stand out a mile from the iOS crowd. However, one look at the developer should convince you to take a closer look. Ravenous Games has been one of the most prolific and consistent iOS game developers since the App Store first launched. It has a discernible house style which is informed by an obvious love of the 8-bit and 16-bit era. Journey Below is a typical Ravenous Games effort in many ways, but it offers a spin on the auto-runner that we haven't seen from the studio before. If you liked Downwell (and who didn't?), you'll recognise some of the elements here. Here are seven reasons why Ravenous Games has b…
