Pudding Monsters

News By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Pudding Monsters

Zeptolabs are resposible for developing the iPhone hit Cut the Rope, and their newest creation is a puzzle game called Pudding Monsters. Makes sense to me; people love pudding, and most can tolerate monsters (even going so far as to like cute ones). The game utilises the mechanic of swiping objects so they meet up (which we've seen before), but the twist is depending on the level, that's only the start of it... plus the pudding has a lot of charm (now there's a phrase I never thought i'd type). Have a look at the trailer. The game is due out on December 20th.…


Viking Puzzle Platforming

Viking Puzzle Platforming

Icebreaker is a physics based puzzle platformer being released by Nitrome studios. It looks visually impressive and while the trailer doesn't exactly highlight the gameplay, you can see there will be lots of slashing and physics manipulation. Looks fun. Have a gander for yourselves. There is no release date planned as of yet. According to their website, they are 80% complete, so my estimates would put this towards an early 2013 release. We'll update information as it becomes available.…


Respawnables spawns on the App Store

Respawnables spawns on the App Store

Zynga has gone and done the unthinkable and released a game that actually looks like it could be snare in some hardcore players. Called Respawnables, it's a cartoon style third person multiplayer shooter. Taking its visual cues from the likes of Battlefield: Heroes and Team Fortress 2, the game also features plenty of weapons and pieces of armour to unlock as you play. This being Zynga there's items to buy with real life money too, but the core of the gameplay looks solid enough that you're not going to begrudge throwing a few coins down to get some better gear. The game is available right now from the App Store for the princely sum of nothing at all. So if you're a fan of multiplayer bla…


THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY Review

Review SQUARE ENIX INC By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY Review

Square Enix certainly have rhythm game’s on their mind of late, but for a company that boasts so many classic songs, very few (if any) were exploited to drive droves of gamers to their welcoming bosom. Other titles may have featured composers that are now famous amongst the gaming community, but Theatrhythm features the songs that brought them to our attention - notably the large anthology of songs they’ve written for the Final Fantasy series. The core premise and executio…

Did you Know Speed Kills?

Did you Know Speed Kills?

Speed Kills is an isometric racer that says it takes its inspiration from classic 16-bit games. What this says to me is "We wanted to make our own version of Rock and Roll Racing". Seeing that game is amazing, I can't really fault them. Have a look at this trailer. The game is set for release sometime in the first quarter of 2013.…


Star Gazing on the iPhone and iPad

Star Gazing on the iPhone and iPad

Around December, we get many news submissions about Christmas themed apps, or Christmas themed updates to games. Nine times out of ten we ignore these, but every now and then something catches our eye. The funny thing in this case is that what I'm about to show off isn't because of an interesting Christmas update (although its kind of humourous), but the app itself is pretty neat, and something we hadn't heard of before... and that is Star Walk. This is a handy guide for astronomy fans, and those interested in the stars, as it acts as a real time star map, and shows off the constallations as well. Have a look at a video demo. The Christmas update mentioned is a Santa tracker by t…


App Wrap Up (Midweek Edition, 12th December 2012)

App Wrap Up (Midweek Edition, 12th December 2012)

Hey hey folks! Welcome to another installment of the App Wrap Up... this week! Isn't it crazy? Anyways, being an auspicious occasion, and by that i mean the date is 12/12/12, let's celebrate by looking at some games that look interesting based solely on their trailers. Here we go! Tribot (deVoid Games) An interesting take on the endless runner genre. The bot has three wheels, and while one of them can hit a hole in the road, any more will cause it to crash. The concept probably doesn't stretch very far, but a new approach is always welcome.[App Store Link] StarCaptain (Number TwentyFiveent Ertainment) As a captain, it's up to you to catch the stars (for posterity i'm assuming…


Herd Herd Herd™ Deluxe Review

Review 2K By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
Herd Herd Herd™ Deluxe Review

Herd Herd Herd Deluxe is one of those games that aims to bridge the gap between young gamers and adults alike thanks to its smooth difficulty curve that plateaus at a high level. No punches are pulled, so you'll need to get your tap and drag on to help save the somewhat docile farm animals in your care. As mentioned, things ramp up quite slowly, and indeed it may feel like the game never really takes off as it drills new skills in to you with each stage, only to provide one or two gen…

Minigore 2: Zombies Review

Review Mountain Sheep By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
Minigore 2: Zombies Review

Minigore could easily be considered one of the staple titles of the iOS platform - despite its (now) relatively mundane concept of throwing hordes of enemies at you while you control the hero with a twin-stick setup, its execution and presentation remained the high-water mark for a long time. Mountain Sheep's sequel, Minigore 2: Zombies, returns without pomp or ceremony. As soon as you load up you're dumped straight in to the first stage and you can choose to use the auto-aim system o…

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition iPad Review

Review Overhaul Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 10 months ago
Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition iPad Review

Some of you out there may be old enough to remember purchasing Baldur's Gate when it first hit the PC in 1998. It came with many goodies, not the least of which was a large vertical sleeve to hold the five CDs required to play the game. Later improvements in compression and technology made it less unwieldy, but the original embodied the content held within - an epic tale of adventure based on the 2nd Edition of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons rules. It was bold and it was brutal, but b…

Tiles Aren't the only thing Dropping on December 12th

The game Tile Drop is as well! Wit! Anyways, watching the trailer of this puzzle game ultimately confused me... but in a really good way. Have a look to see what I mean... It's a free app, but for those wishing to get a taste before the release, the developer Daniel Wood has made two versions of the game available to play now. The easy version can be found here, while what he called the Derek version (which is a more advanced set of puzzles), can be found here.…

Into the Dead Review

Oh look, another zombie apocalypse game. What? It's an endless runner as well, that has a store to upgrade your chances of survival and the length of the game? Gee, we haven't seen anything like this before, he said sarcastically. With all this being the case, Into the Dead does something astonishing. It offers a breathtakingly gorgeous engaging gaming experience. Load the game up, and you'll start right near a crashed helicopter. Turning around, there's nothing but fields and the und…

Space Hulk headed to iOS devices next year

Developer Full Control and Games Workshop have announced that an iOS version of the classic space-dungeon crawling board game Space Hulk is set to arrive on iOS devices in the new year. Featuring a 12 stage single player or cooperative campaign based around the Sin of Damnation Hulk from the thrid edition of the game, Space Hulk promises a turn based, tactical adventure like no other. A cross platform multiplayer mode lets you compete against friends in recreations of the classic Genestealers versus Terminators scraps of the original board game. “Since playing the board game decades ago I have always wanted to recreate this slice of Warhammer 40,000 as a computer game. Now we can fi…


Team Awesome Review

Review Ezone.com By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Team Awesome Review

A mysterious meteor has crashed into the planet, spraying forth red and blue crystals everywhere. Four unsuspecting wage slaves have been affected by these crystals, granting them super powers and the ability to form a group called Team Awesome. As impressive as that sounds, the rest of the experience is grinding through repetitive levels to gain enough coins to unlock the next level, only to do the whole thing all over again. But at least the controls are based around one touch gamep…

Sky Hero™ Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Sky Hero™ Review

Your fortress is under attack, a message needs to be relayed to headquarters. What is a brave soldier to do? Why it is his prerogative, nay his duty, to leap from the tower and free fall to victory, avoiding enemy bombardment on the way down. Sky Hero puts you in the floppy pants of such a soldier. Your plummet is closely being followed by a menacing fire beast as well as his minions, which consist of barrels, cannons, and hacksaw carrying birdies. Tilting is the name of the game as y…
