Modern Combat 4 arrives on Thursday

The next installment in Gameloft's Call of Duty inspired Modern Combat series, subtitled Zero Hour, will be dramatically blasting its way onto the App Store on Thursday. Android gamers will have to wait a little longer to get their hands on the game, with Gameloft stating that the game should be available "shortly after" on the Google powered devices. Although Gameloft's track record on Android ports means not holding your breath for it is advisable. There's no word on a specific price yet, but Gameloft has revealed that the game will be a premium release, so something around $4.99 shouldn't be too far off the mark. With a strong single player campaign, new multiplayer modes, and some of…

Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders Review

Storm Raiders by Atypical Games and Revo Solutions has been given a huge visual overhaul, giving the Sky Gamblers series exactly what it needed to remain the best in show. Considering previous titles had almost perfected flight simulator gameplay for the iOS platform, pairing the game up with famous locations, rendered in gorgeous detail and polished with high resolution textures makes this a must-have all on is own.

Angry Birds Seasons gets advent calendar updates

Rovio has released a new update to Angry Birds Seasons that adds a wintry theme to the bird flinging, physics based destruction puzzler. There are twenty five new levels that unlock every day from now until Christmas, as well as three secret levels that apparently offer specil wintry treats. The new update also introduces the ice element, which you can expect to be both slippy and slidy, and add all sorts of new mayhem to the already pretty madcap game. The update, which pushes the game up to version 3.10, is available from the App Store right now for free. So if you fancy some Christmas themed bird on pig action, we'd suggest grabbing it as soon as possible.…

Zenonia 5 hits Android

Gamevil has released the next installment of its action RPG series, Zenonia, onto the Google Play Store. And that means that an iOS version shouldn't be too far behind. Subtitled Wheel of Destiny, the game is set long after the events of the fourth title in the series, and sees the world being overrun with monsters yet again. Cue some Zelda inspired top-down hacking and slashing as you try and restore order to once peaceful lands by killing everything that looks a bit like it might be about to do something bad. By the looks of the trailer, which you can check out for yourself below, it also looks like Gamevil has squashed a card battler into the game as well. Throw in PvP, four new classe…

The Bowling Dead Review

The Bowling Dead Review

[This title is featured as the Mini-Review for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 30th of November, 2012] It's a thin premise, but The Bowling Dead by Slant Six Games and Activision places you in the unusual position of a zombie apocalypse survivor who discovers a bowling ball that seems to be the only thing that can stop them. Obviously the first part isn't new, but the second part results in a strangely addictive title. It's a sort of mash up between Full Fat's Zombie Flick and a basi…

3volution - A Primordial Soup Challenge Review

Review ZAKI By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
3volution - A Primordial Soup Challenge Review

Why is the E in evolution turned around into a 3 for the sake of this title? Well because the whole concept of primordial evolution is apparently aided by three helpers named Nunstuck, Git, and Slotermeyer. 3Volution has you evolving through life forms in what amounts to sort of a high speed soccer game, complete with power-ups and obstacles creating an experience that can be unfair and over before you know it, but set up so that you instantly press retry to give the whole affair anoth…

Jet Set Radio grinds onto the App Store

Of all the Dreamcast era classics that Sega produced - and believe me, there are many - Jet Set Radio stands out as jewel in the crown. Its mix of breakneck speed, gorgeous cel-shaded graphics, pumping soundtrack, and sub cultural cool made it one of the finest games of its generation. And now it's back on iOS. For just $4.99 you can carry a faithful recreation of the rollerblading phenomenon around with you in your pocket, sating whatever street art lusts you get in a legal and incredibly fun manner. Jet Set Radio is available from the App Store now, and it's compatible with anything from the 3GS up. You should go download it now, or maybe wait for our review. Your call.…


Jet Set Radio Review

Review SEGA By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Jet Set Radio Review

Some games stick in your mind, not because they were particularly fun to play, but because it managed to grab you through its artistic expression. Strangely this isn't an uncommon thing, especially amongst games in the Indie scene, but Jet Set Radio is far from a small title and despite its age there's still something almost unquantifiable about its appeal. However, porting over a title comes with risks and challenges, especially when talking about the iOS platform and while much of t…

Trauma Ted Review

Trauma Ted Review

We've all played oh so many games like Trauma Ted. The quick, easy to play bursts of puzzle-y goodness, the simple yet endearing art and music, the level menu strewn with numbered tiles for all the options available. It seems that aside from some revolutionary gameplay ideas, the only thing that can make a game like this interesting after so many others is the premise. Well how about helping an injured cat with a migraine feed his painkiller addiction level by level, utilizing wrap aro…
