Control and race toy cars with Anki Overdrive this September

Remember when you used to play with Scalextric as a kid, seeing how fast you could make the toy car go before it flew off the track? Anki have taken that idea to the next level. Meet Anki Overdrive, a game in which you build your own physical race track, plonk your toy car on it, then race against other toy cars, controlled either by A.I. or a friend. Oh, and you and your friends control your cars via an app on your smartphones or tablets. Not bad, eh? Anki Overdrive is due out this September. Check out the official trailer below for an overly dramatic display of how the game works.  …

22cans addresses the Godus community over concerns about the game's future

As it currently stands, a fair few of the features promised in the Kickstarter campaign won't be making their way into Godus, which has resulted in an outpouring of concern from the Godus community. Amidst this unrest, the developers of Godus have released a video status update to try and address the concerns about the future of the game, which has had its development shifted to a smaller team. Check out the video below, where 22cans go into much further detail about the Kickstarter campaign, the game's development, and its future.…

Hands-on with Religion Simulator, and praise be to the cheese slices

I'm not one for organised religion myself, but I find the concept fascinating. If you're equally interested in how religious dogma spreads across the world, or are just up for a fast-paced strategic game, then Religion Simulator may be for you. I got my hands on an early build, and this is what it looks like in motion.…

Check out how Legend of Grimrock will play on your iPad this spring

2012 saw the arrival of a real indie gem in Legend of Grimrock which was inspired by first person dungeon crawlers of yore such as Dungeon Master and Eye of the Beholder. Legend of Grimrock is now coming to iPad and I can't wait to give it a second run. It's just entered the beta stage which means, in technical terms, that it's nearly there. Legend of Grimrock will arrive in the App Store this spring. Check out the brand new footage from Almost Human below to see the game in its current state.…

Hands-on with Daytona Rush, the endless racer that goes round and round and round and round and

So far I've enjoyed my time with this early version of Daytona Rush. A colourful and chunky endless racer, Daytona Rush mostly has you zipping between three lanes, trying to avoid the heavily congested tracks, all the while keeping an eye on your fuel gauge and pitting into a fourth lane to resupply. The game's out shortly, here's an early look...…

Just how much damage can your mobile gaming device withstand?

There are a lot of things to consider when deciding which mobile, tablet, or handheld device you're planning to purchase. How many people consider how much damage your device is capable of taking before it jacks it in permanently? Not enough people, I'd wager. As ever, AppSpy has got your back and has taken the liberty of investigating this delicate issue for you. We find out which of your gaming devices can withstand the most damage with assistance from Blendtec. 1. iPhone 6 Plus - One thing's for sure: the iPhone 6 Plus bends. But how does it handle itself in a swirling vaccum of blades? Ultimately, not very well to be honest but it did put up a rather impressive fight. 2. …

Soul Seeker is a mobile action RPG that's all about the team effort

Come to think of it, most action RPGs are selfish experiences. Bar a small few, you're largely on your own destroying absolutely everything in your path such as orcs or barrels just minding their own business. However, in Soul Seeker you assemble a whole team of action junkies to take on the world with. Let's hope that means you don't have to hammer the health potion button when you can get a team mate to heal you instead. Soul Seeker RIse of the Devils is out now on iOS and Android. The trailer below will give you a better look at the game and the links below will take you to the App Store and Google Play. [App Store link] [Google Play link]…

Welcome to Toysburg where a lunatic skates around turning children into their favourite toys

Toysburg is a free to play sandbox game by Angry Mob Games, the developers behind Muffin Knight, that's currently in soft launch in Australia. True to form, Toysburg has a similar cartoon style and charm. You skate around turning children into their favourite toys for an as of yet unknown reason. There's a crafting system that lets you take parts from different toys to make a new toy altogether. Ever wanted to put a Viking's head on a cows body with octopus tentacles for feet? Now you can. Check out the debut trailer below to witness Toysburg's insanity for yourself. It's set to launch on the App Store and Google Play later this year.…
