Heroes of Order & Chaos delayed for Android

News By Harry Slater, 1 year, 11 months ago
Heroes of Order & Chaos delayed for Android

We weren't that enamoured with Gameloft's MOBA Heroes of Order & Chaos. It had some nice ideas, but they got a bit lost under connectivity issues, which just isn't good enough for an online only game. However, Android gamers haven't even had a chance to find out about the stability issues, because despite Gameloft promising a simultaneous release, the game is still conspicuous in its absence from the Google Play Store. This is because Gameloft is tinkering with some server issues they've discovered with the Android version. So hopefully Android players should have a far more stable experience when it does release than iOS players have been suffering. So if you're waiting with baited b…

App Wrap Up (Weekend Edition, 26th November, 2011)

Hey hey folks. It's Monday and summer is really started to hit hard over here. How can I tell? The hayfever has begun! As i try to ignore my dripping nose and itchy eyes, here are some games from the App Store that may have fallen under the radar. Based on their trailers, we're gonna take a look at them, and if you like what you see, well you can always click the app store link and give the game a go! Let's begin. Real Boxing (Vivid Games S.A.) Maybe it's memories of Mike Tyson's Punch Out, but I have a soft spot for boxing games. Now this one looks fun enough, but in the end, that all comes down to the controls. If they're well executed, players will definitely be in a pugilist para…

Move away good people lest you get hurt. We're about to enter the Crumble Zone. Releasing this week on the 29th, it looks to be a fun little high score action game with some fantastic sound effects and tactility. The trailer will show you what I mean.…


Take Minecraft into the real world

Take Minecraft into the real world

If you've ever slaved over an impressive creation in Minecraft, then you know how satisfying it is to stand back and marvel at your work. Well, imagine if everyone else in the world could do that as well. Thanks to Minecraft Reality, that's now a very real possible. The iOS app lets you upload your creations to the real world, leaving them there for others to find using their iPhone or iPad cameras. It's a clever application of AR technology, and as you can see in the video below, it lets you change the world in some pretty cool, innovative ways. Minecraft Reality is available from the App Store right now for $1.99, and if you still need to be swayed, check out the video of the app in act…


Heroes of Order & Chaos - Multiplayer Online Game Review

Review Gameloft By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Heroes of Order & Chaos - Multiplayer Online Game Review

For those that enjoy MOBAs (Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas), the idea of being able to play a portable version of a game they may have loved for years is something equally beautiful and terrible to think about. On one hand the sheer complexity inherent in a genre with such a diverse amount of heroes and items (and the combinations there of) can be mind-boggling; a truly difficult thing to replicate on a touch-based mobile gaming device. On the other hand, Action-RPGs have proven the…

Angry Birds Star Wars Review

Review Rovio Entertainment Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Angry Birds Star Wars Review

I rarely say this, but every now and then a developer actually 'gets it'. 'Gets what' you say? They get tie-in products, which is all the more strange for Angry Birds Star Wars not only being a mash-up of two very popular franchises, but the game isn't even new - it's an add on. Yet still, here I sit playing the game, gaze firmly fixed on my targets as I attempt to solve yet another tricky puzzle.Over the years this sort of puzzle design is what Angry Birds has come to specialize in an…

Beatdown! Review

Review Ravenous Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Beatdown! Review

As a studio Ravenous Games seems to hold to the 'less is more' philosophy when it comes to their games. At times this can work against a title, but in the case of the white-knuckle brawler Beatdown! the stripped-back style keeps the action flowing and before you know it you've finished the bite-sized game with a sigh of relief. Taking its cues from games of old such as River City Ransom, Double Dragon, and yes the ever-loved Streets of Rage, your task is one of dishing out pain wrappe…

Galaxy On Fire 2 free on the App Store

Galaxy On Fire 2 free on the App Store

It's fair to say that none of us are ever going to feel the real thrill of a dogfight in space, cursed as we are to be born in a time where spaceships spend most of their time on the ground and are rarely equipped with lasers. Luckily, right now the really rather brilliant Galaxy on Fire 2 is available from the App Store for free, meaning we can live out our space fighting dreams without the danger of being sucked out in an endless vacuum. We awarded the game 5/5 when we reviewed it, and updates since then have only added to our admiration of the space faring saga. It's full of action, intrigue, and there's enough content to keep you playing for hours. It's only the standard version of…


Sleepwalker's Journey Review

Review 11 bit studios s.a. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Sleepwalker's Journey Review

Puzzle platformers can be tricky beasts - so many fall in to the trap of designing stages that progress in challenge too slowly or worse still, spike in difficulty, causing you to throw down your iDevice in frustration. Sleepwalker's Journey by 11 bit studios ramps up its challenge quite quickly, but it's such a smooth ride up that you'll be flicking, swiping and tapping furiously before you know it. Poor Moonboy has a bit of a problem - he's at risk of being woken up, and you have no…

App Wrap Up (Thursday Edition, 22nd November 2012)

Hey hey all. Seeing that it's Thanksgiving over in the US, the majority of the news surrounding this week has been Black Friday sales. Seeing as your site already has that handy section informing our viewers when games go on sale, we'll just have to give you another App Wrap Up to tide you over. As always, we'll be looking at some games that may have fallen under the radar, and will be making quick evaluations based on their trailers. Enjoy! Starbloom (Shadegrown Games) This is kind of reminiscent of Catch-22 in its presentation, only this game allows you to move off the beaten path, and as you play, more orbits are created. Looks relaxing and enjoyable.[App Store Link] Directional…


Hungry Shark Evolution Review

Review Future Games of London By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Hungry Shark Evolution Review

There have been plenty of games through the years that have let us swim around under the sea as Dolphins, but very few that let us gain control of the master predator himself, Mr Shark (cause you damn well better approach these merciless killing machines with respect). Hungry Shark Evolution changes all that by presenting us with a game based on a stunning contrast. The serene beauty of swimming around the calm blue ocean, punctuated by a feeding frenzy of tropical fish, turtles, and m…

Meganoid 2 Review

Review Pascal Bestebroer By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Meganoid 2 Review

Much like the original Meganoid, its sequel keeps things fast, furious and simple. Did I say simple? What I meant to say is 'it's brutal', but you'll not be able to blame the game (at least not directly) for any mistakes you make as the controls are dead easy to learn (left, right, jump, and double jump). Orange Pixel have nailed their virtual controls, which is an absolute godsend. The reason it's so helpful is because everything else about the game is entirely unforgiving. Stages a…

Bladeslinger slices onto the App Store

Kerosene Games and Lumo Arcade have unleashed their Unreal powered third person action adventure Bladeslinger onto the App Store. The game, which mixes ghoulish fantasy, steampunk, and the old west, sees you slashing your way through a variety of disgusting creatures in a quest for vengeance. You play as William Glaston, who's sword to save his home town of Hammer's Peak from the fell beasts that have overrun the once peaceful settlement. Set to be the first part of a larger story, the game features intuitive touch controls and some of the best graphics we've seen on an iOS device to date. If that's tickled your interest glands, have a look at the trailer below, then head over to the App…


300 Dwarves SD Review

Review Josh Presseisen By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
300 Dwarves SD Review

You've got to bring something to the table when it comes to the tower defense genre, be it cleverly designed or endlessly replayable stages; unique tower combinations and effects; or a twist on the concept that's rarely seen, or possibly even entirely unique. Despite the best efforts of Nimbi Studios, 300 Dwarves gets lost in the crowd, opting for more of a unique visual theme than anything truly novel. You and your fellow dwarves are besieged by the green-skinned menace rampaging thr…

App Wrap Up (Midweek Edition, 21st November 2012)

Hey Hey readers. It's nice for another App Wrap Up! Exciting isn't it. As always we will be looking at some titles that may have passed under the radar, and will be showing you their trailers, and then making curt qualitative comments based on them. Oh happy days! Let's get started! Rhythmix (Krithee Sirisith) I don't know if calling this a high octane rhythm game does it justice. It looks nuts to tell the truth. Multiple tap and swipe gestures and if the trailer audio is an indication, a fast paced soundtrack. I think rhythm game fans should have a blast here.[App Store Link] Soccer Punk (AppCom Interactive GmbH) A fun little spin on the all too worn physics flinger formul…
