Friday News Wrap-Up 21 September 2012

Dave and I are working overtime to sort through them all, but until then you can enjoy the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 21st of September, 2012. Coaster Crazy - Out Later This YearThose familiar with Frontier Developments will remember their work on LostWinds and LostWinds 2, and in particular, the solid iOS adaptions of both titles.

There’s a sort of Rollercoaster Tycoon vibe, albeit…

Spectromancer Review

[This game was featured as the mini-review for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 21st of September, 2012] If you’ve played Hothead’s ‘Kard Combat’ then you’ll know what you’re in for with Three Donkeys’ iPhone and iPad title ‘Spectromancer’. Players are handed a ‘deck’ comprised of an infinite amount of various cards, each requiring a certain amount of ‘mana’ to cast. Each turn you’ll earn a base amount…

Don't rain on my parade in October

Don't rain on my parade in October

While a game like Negative Nimbus may be outside our standard game fare, being as it's targeted for young children, i felt that the sense of humour and fun was prominent enough, and the concept interesting enough to warrant a preview. Have a watch of the trailer. It should be out sometime in October.…


STREET FIGHTER X TEKKEN MOBILE  Review

Review CAPCOM By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 12 months ago
STREET FIGHTER X TEKKEN MOBILE  Review

In only three short months STREET FIGHTER X TEKKEN (SFxTK) has undergone a transition from its true home on Consoles and PCs to the mobile platform. Fighter fans may take exception to my wording there, but fear not, Street Fighter on iOS has (to date) been adapted almost perfectly for touch-screen devices. SFxTK is no exception to this and indeed it places even more emphasis on its ‘versus’ modes than ever before - sure you can enjoy the game single-player, but if you have…

Review BitMonster, Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 12 months ago
Lili™ Review

If you’re one of the handful of people who If you’re one of the handful of people who missed out on hearing about Lili by BitMonster, then you’re in for a treat. There was absolutely no question of how beautiful this game was going to be as it not only sports the Unreal Engine, but those who made it are ex-Epic and quite familiar with how to use it. However, what really counts isn’t the presentation, but how it interacts with the gameplay - and on this score the…

N.O.V.A. 3 for iOS receives a sizeable update

Gameloft has released another free content update for its impressive futuristic FPS, N.O.V.A. 3, adding a new multiplayer mode, a new map to scrap on, and voice chat on selected devices too. The new multiplayer mode is called Team InstaGib, and, as its name suggests, is a team based, one-shot-kill battle to the death. Everyone has the same weapon, making it a real test of your twitchy shooting skills. The new map is called Warehouse. It's set in futuristic San Francisco, and its mix of long and short range combat opportunities make it an intriguing prospects. Throw in some Halo style jet packs, and you're left with an arena that has something for everyone. And last but not least, the ne…

Motorbike Vrooming in the App Store

Physics based racing / platformer games have become a hot commodity in the past few years with plenty of attempts by developers to recreate a Trails HD, Joe Danger, or Bike Baron. Motorbike by baKno games is in the same vain, but it looks like it has the chops to succeed. Here's the trailer. The HD version has a free lite version, but at $0.99, this looks like a sure bet if you love these type of games. Look for our review sometime in the coming week.[App Store Link]…

Rollercoaster Creation Due Before the end of the Year

The success of the Rollercoaster Tycoon franchise on PC shows that people love the idea of building their own rollercoasters. Now Frontier Developments, the minds behind the Lost Winds games are releasing Coaster Crazy sometime before the end of the year. Here's the trailer. It looks like it could be a lot of fun. We'll let you know when we get a definite release date.…


Gibbets 2 Review

Review HeroCraft Ltd. By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 12 months ago
Gibbets 2 Review

Sometimes it’s hard to know whether a game is controlling badly because you’ve missed some key bit of information, or because the game itself has poor controls. Gibbets 2 by HeroCraft had me pondering this problem on the second level - which I might point out took quite a few tries before I worked it out - and ultimately it was a little bit of column A and B, but the damage had already been done. Your task, should you take it, is to aim a bow and rescue the people being hu…

Capcom unleashes Street Fighter X Tekken onto the App Store

Capcom unleashes Street Fighter X Tekken onto the App Store

Capcom has finally released the iOS version of their console smash hit, Street Fighter X Tekken. It brings with it Retina support, and a robust online mode that fighter fans are going to love. Built from the ground up as a touch screen experience, the game features a roster of ten legendary characters from the Street Fighter and Tekken series, and lets you take part in furious two on two tag team battles. We've embedded a slightly mental Japanese launch trailer below so you can get a decent idea of what the game's all about, but we'd suggest you pick it up sharpish, as the game's on sale for just $2.99/£1.99 for a limited time only.…


Rayman Jungle Run Review

Review Ubisoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 12 months ago
Rayman Jungle Run Review

When it comes to the Rayman series, I feel as though it has been a slow-burner - though always fun, the success of its spin-offs has brought the series full-circle and we’re being reminded of what it feels like to play a high-quality platformer. Rayman Jungle Run may strip-out the depth of a regular Rayman game, but what’s left is far from casual in its challenge as you use taps to jump, glide, wall-run and yes, even punch your way through stages. To reduce the controls to…

Play the first level of Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land for free

If you're interested in Red Wasp Design's ghoulish RTS Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land, which sees you battling against nightmarish forces in an alternate World War 1, you can now grab a free trial of the tutorial and the first level for nothing at all. Since we reviewed the game at the start of the year, there've been a few tweaks to the gameplay, and plenty of new content packs that add even more gloopy violence to the tale of soldiers and investigators attempting to uncover an evil conspiracy at the heart of the Great War. More interestingly, if you're still not convinced after playing the first level, you can pay a little extra to buy the next one, and have a bash through that while…

Sword Of Fargoal 2 - Kickstarter Underway

Sword of Fargoal is not only a retro-classic, but a hit on the App Store thanks to a lovely make-over that appealed to nostalgic retro-gamers and newcomers alike. Jeff McCloud is keen to capitolize on the game's success by taking the concept even further by packing in 'more' than ever before: "...more spells. More monsters. More traps. Better graphics. More music. Animation. New characters types. New quests. A new dungeon-generation system, and much more." To ensure the game is as jam-packed full of features as possible, Fargoal has taken to Kickstarter to fund the remaining '20%' that hopes to add more animations, music, procedural map generation, 'action cards' to re-watch moments fro…


Verticus - From The Mind Of Stan Lee

Verticus - From The Mind Of Stan Lee

I'm not saying the Stan Lee is an automatic 'win' when it comes to new concepts, but it's hard to fault the man who has fought so passionately for the nerdy pasttime of reading comics. Verticus places players in control of a 'jump suit' falling towards the center of the Earth and dispatching 'Obliterators' on the way down. In a way the game comes off as a third-person rail-shooter and frankly the more of those we can get on to the App Store the better, especially when it looks this good. Controlled Chaos Media have teased the gameplay via their YouTube Channel - see if it whets your whistle. Those keen to try out the game for themselves will have to wait, but not for too long as…
