SupaSupa Games Brings Arcade Motocross Racing To iPhone

News By James Nouch, 2 years, 2 months ago
SupaSupa Games Brings Arcade Motocross Racing To iPhone

SupaSupa Games's debut iPhone release has just ridden onto the App Store. Yes, it really is called SupaSupaCross. Aforementioned game is a top-down arcade motocross racer with the emphasis firmly on fun rather than realism. In SupaSupaCross, you steer your bobble-headed racer across a series of off-road tracks, hitting the odd boost pad along the way to gain the edge over your competitors. You can choose between touch or tilt controls for steering, by the way. SupaSupa Games is an indie studio made up of former members of now-defunct THQ Digital Studio Phoenix - the team behind the MX vs. ATV series on home consoles. You can grab SupaSupaCross from the App Store right now for 99c.…


Paper Monsters Review

Review Crescent Moon Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Paper Monsters Review

The recent release of Terra Noctis proved once more that not only are platformers still fun, but with the right tweaks they're perfect for iDevices. It seems that Crescent Moon Games and developer Robots vs Wizards were on the same wavelength when coming up with Paper Monsters, but instead of something akin to Yoshi's Island, this game channels simpler games of the era. This isn't the developer's first rodeo when it comes to platformers and you can see shades of their previous title D…

Desert Zombie Last Stand Review

Review Eighth Wonder Studios By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 2 months ago
Desert Zombie Last Stand Review

If there's one thing that is a constant in zombie games is that they don't have guns, and they don't shoot back. I mean the whole point of the explosion of zombie related video-gaming is that it's a way to satisfy a desire for wonton violence against something that looks human, but isn't. The fact that they hobble around and are ripe for the deadly end of a variety of firearms just adds to the appeal... so what happens when that changes? Desert Zombie Last Stand is kind of like the me…

NFL Kicker! Review

Review Full Fat By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
NFL Kicker! Review

The last time Full Fat dropped a game on to the App Store we were treated to a unique take on the sport as players focused their attention on the role of the quarterback. In continuing with their NFL licensed releases the developer has switched to kicking field goals, bringing it more in line with their previous titles. For those not already familiar with flick-based sports titles, the basic gameplay revolves around attempting to flick a ball (in this case an American football) in to…

Clay's Reverie Review

Review SuperGlueStudio By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 2 months ago
Clay's Reverie Review

It's time to access the dictionary! Reverie means a dreamy meditation or fanciful musing, but you probably already knew that. The small puffy blob known as Clay must be dreaming, and he needs to reach the end of his dreams safely while collecting as many stars as possible. This game is a balance of two control schemes that can be seen to be fighting against each other. The level is constantly moving forward and you need to avoid all the obstacles. Clay is stuck on a horizontal bar tha…

Remedy’s Explosive Racer Death Rally Is Free For A Day

Remedy's explosive racing game Death Rally is free to download today. Death Rally is an updated version of Remedy's 1996 debut game, and has you driving for your life in the titular vehicular competition.

Accelerate onto the App Store now to grab your free copy of Death Rally.…


Puzzlejuice Review

Review Sirvo LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Puzzlejuice Review

If you haven't reached a comfortable state of equilibrium with common arcade titles that feature gameplay elements such as color-matching, word-finding or block tessellating, then I can only assume you're a very VERY recent convert to the world of gaming. Don't worry, you'll join the fold soon enough and if you're interested in getting there even faster you can play Puzzlejuice because it combines all three. The best part is it caters to those with only a few seconds spare; those who…

Telltale’s Hector and Puzzle Agent Adventure Games Discounted On iPhone

Telltale is currently hosting a sale on its iPhone puzzle adventures series Hector and Puzzle Agent, with select titles discounted to 99c from their usual price of $4.99. Both Puzzle Agent and Puzzle Agent 2 are reduced, so now's a good time to acquaint yourself with series protagonist Nelson Tethers, an FBI Puzzle Research Division agent, and the game's spooky setting: Scoggins. As you explore the strange town of Scoggins, you'll be solving puzzles for the locals, investigating the mystery of the local eraser factory, and guffawing at the dialogue. We awarded Puzzle Agent a 4/5 in our agent evaluation. Err, I mean, review. Meanwhile, episodes 2 and 3 in the Hector series are currently a…


Caverns of Minos Review

Review Llamasoft By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Caverns of Minos Review

I think I'm slowly getting it - by 'it' I mean Llamasoft, and by 'get' I mean I'm not sure if I'm just losing my mind or if their games have simply grown on me like some sort of hyper-color retro-tastic mold. Their latest arcade focused title Caverns of Minos may owe its inspirations to titles like Caverns of Mars, but in typical style the game will either inspire joy thanks to its many self-referencing gags and over-the-top mash-up of gameplay, or will simply feel like an unholy mess;…

Greedy Penguins™ Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
Greedy Penguins™ Review

I'm not the first person to point it out, but when did penguins become such a regular theme on the App Store? In any case, Greedy Penguins by Shamrock Games and Chillingo seemingly painted itself in to a corner by choosing to jump in to the 'cute, 3-star physics puzzler' arena and decided to go the whole-hog. Don't mistake this for another Cut the Rope though - while similar concepts are in play, timing your drops to get the right fish to the right penguin isn't as easy as you'd think.…

Game Soundtracks Up For Grabs!

Game Soundtracks Up For Grabs!

When a game gets its music right, it becomes iconic - reaching that level of fame isn't easy for some artists, but Josh Whelchel, the musician behind recent titles like Wind-Up Knight and Ravenmark, is certainly on the right path. As a special treat we've got codes to download copies of soundtracks from both titles, but there's a catch: You'll need to find them. Don't worry, it's nothing too taxing, but if you happen to miss out then there's a second-chance draw on offer. Simply retweet on Twitter, or comment below, or like and share this post on Facebook in the next 48 hours and you'll go in the draw for one of a handful of codes. Winners will be announced on Monday the 30th of January.…


JAZZ: Trump's journey Review

Review Bulkypix By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 2 months ago
JAZZ: Trump's journey Review

For some, Jazz music is nothing but a cacophony of sound that thinks it's somehow clever for all of its solo jams and dueling instruments... to others it's a divine form of music filled with rich unique textures and a bold sense of life that's always changing. JAZZ: Trump's journey by EggBall Games and Bulkypix embodies the second viewpoint by creating a platformer rich in appearance, bold in its musical aesthetic and always ready to throw a new challenge in your path. You control Tru…

SOULCALIBUR Review

Review NamcoBandai Games Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 2 years, 3 months ago
SOULCALIBUR Review

It seems as though it was only a matter of time before someone would eventually remind Namco Bandai that they're sitting on a gold-mine. Thanks to iOS releases of Street Fighter and King of Fighters, SoulCalibur has been provided with an opportunity to show off its 3D fighting gameplay on a hand-held platform. While the usual genre concerns with regards to virtual controls remain ever-present, SoulCalibur is still a fantastically fun romp for fans of the series. However before we cont…

Kanye West Has Reportedly ‘Brainstormed’ Ideas With Angry Birds Team

Kanye West has reportedly attended a late-night meeting with the company behind monster seller Angry Birds. Why? To brainstorm ideas and discuss possible avenues for collaboration. Naturally. British tabloid The Sun reports that Kanye's meeting with Rovio took place in London earlier this month, and to the surprise of no one, "it was his idea". There are no details regarding the outcome of this meeting, so we're left to guess at the form that any Rovio-Kanye joint venture might take. Perhaps Kanye could provide the soundtrack for a future Angry Birds project? Or perhaps Rovio could equip Kanye with a giant catapult to help him disrupt awards shows more effectively? Your guess is as go…

Friday News Wrap-Up 20 January 2012

For those keeping up with discussion topics in the iOS gaming community, it seems the wheel has spun back around to discussions of whether or not freemium has a place in the industry... for me personally I believe it is, much like any other system, a valid one, however if you allow your gameplay to suffer just to manipulate or otherwise turn a quick buck then it becomes a problem.
