Hardly anyone paying for Punch Quest

News By Harry Slater, 1 year, 11 months ago
Hardly anyone paying for Punch Quest

While Rocket Cat's endless puncher might be gaining critical acclaim, the number of people who are actually spending money on its in-app purchases is almost non-existent. Speaking to Pocket Gamer, designer Kepa Auwae stated that while over half a million people had downloaded the game, only around 0.01% of them have actually spent any money on it. "We really needed to get seen by more people, and Punch Quest accomplished that while giving us a ton of success with review scores from major sites and acclaim from iOS gamers." It's not unusual to see the less vociferous freemium titles suffering. Earlier this year Solipskier's Gasketball suffered a similar fate, with an even more dramatic c…


N.Y.Zombies 2 Review

Review Foursaken Media By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
N.Y.Zombies 2 Review

N.Y.Zombies 2 by Foursaken Media is the sort of game that makes you glad that a developer is willing to listen to their fans. Building upon the original in just about every way, it's still a flawed experience, but one that manages to exploit the mixed state of realism and fantasy. No lengthy story set up is needed - zombies are here and you need to survive. What follows is a series of missions that follow a fairly basic story filled with protecting survivors and attempting to escape t…

Borderlands Legends Review

Review 2K By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 11 months ago
Borderlands Legends Review

The life of a Vault hunter isn't an easy one - aside from the hostile environs of a place like Pandora (which is, incidentally, the planet they're on), there are Skags, aliens, and more than a few bandits who are all too happy to loot your still-warm corpse. Borderlands Legends follows on from the first title, with Mordecai, Roland, Lilith, and Brick seeking the treasure they found (and lost) from the Vault. An all new method of control accompanies Borderlands on its iOS debut, with p…

App Wrap Up (Tuesday Edition, 30th October 2012)

Hey hey everyone. I'll quell the rumours right now - this is not going to be a Halloween themed App Wrap Up. There really just werent that many Halloween themed games that look good enough to feature, and besides, there's a bit of a backlog when it comes to interesting titles for this column. As always, we're showing off the trailers of games that look like they might have something interesting to offer, and any analysis is based on said trailers. Ok, let's get started. Cpt. Backwater (Intermediaware) This is a puzzle game, the trailer makes that very clear. How it works though is a little harder to figure out. It looks like how have to slide objects into each other (possibly to mak…

Gameloft porting 12 titles to Windows Phone 8

Gameloft porting 12 titles to Windows Phone 8

Gameloft has announced that it's hard at work on porting 12 of its most popular iOS and Android games on to Microsoft's recently released Windows 8 Platform. There's no firm release date for the titles yet, just a vague 2012/2013, but they're a mixed bag of casual and hardcore games that should appeal to a broad spectrum of gamers. Most excitingly for Windows Phone 8 players Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour, the upcoming installment in Gameloft's CoD aping military shooter series is making the shift in the not too distant future. There's also the dynamic duo of superhero movie tie-ins The Amazing Spider-Man and The Dark Knight Rises, and sci-fi FPS epic N.O.V.A 3. You can check out all of the…


Lotsa Blocks Review

Review Backabit By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Lotsa Blocks Review

The physics block stacking game is an established mobile genre. Even more than that, giving the blocks (or whatever you happen to be balancing) personalities isn't anything new either. None of this is a problem if you can deliver the content in an interesting and entertaining way. Does Lotsa Blocks accomplish this? Let's find out. The goal in adventure mode is to stack blocks on the teetering balance beam to reach the finish line placed somewhere above. Before dragging the blocks from…

Halloween iOS Bonanza Part 2 - More Tricks And Treats To Enjoy!

There are many reasons to enjoy the holiday seasons, but being able to grab a fistful of excellent titles at bargain prices and enjoying copious amounts of free content certainly helps. So we're back again with more news of publishers and developers alike going crazy thanks to the pumpkin-fueled period that is the end of October! Dead Trigger Halloween Update We didn't make any bones about how dissapointed we were at the release content for MADFINGER's zombie shoot'em-up Dead Trigger, but true to their word the game is constantly being updated, making it a bargain at the generous entry price of 'free'. Of course their Halloween update has just gone live, pushing out additional optimizati…


Polyroll Review

Review Justin Craig By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 11 months ago
Polyroll Review

Polyroll is a platformer that takes more than a little inspiration from the original Sonic the Hedgehog game. The evil Kaiser Kiwi has captured Polyroll's friends, and through rolling, jumping, collecting gems, and power-ups, it's up to you as the player to save them (There is ambiguity here as I am not really sure exactly what kind of creature Polyroll is meant to be). Graphically a lot of the game suffers from this issue. The sprite art is pretty competent and varied, and looks like…

Enter the Monochrome Lair of the Minotaur

Described as a cross between Ikaruga and Tilt to Live, Minotaur is looking like a fast paced, engaging high score game that's arriving just in time for Halloween on October 31st. I could explain more, but i'll let the trailer do the talking. Definitely looks worth checking out though.…


Girls Like Robots Review

Girls Like Robots Review

Girls like Robots, published by Adult Swim is the most charming and entertaining seating arrangement simulator on the App Store. Now before you all run away out of boredom, let's clarify that. Yes the core mechanic of the game is to find the optimal seating arrangement between a collection of colorful characters that either love or loathe each other, but it's through the characters themselves, and how the game keeps unrolling new situations that makes this a puzzle game that's certainl…

Novelty is in the eye of the Beholder

Novelty is in the eye of the Beholder

First watch the trailer... What a novel concept. Instead of utilizing touch and gesture based input, Eyesfire makes use of the face recognition software in the iPhone. Now from a gameplay standpoint, finding an optimum area to place your phone, and moving your head around might be problematic (as well as firing a gun by blinking, which means you have to stop looking at the screen, as fast as the process may be). Still, we give credit to such intriguing game concepts, as it's thinking outside the box that can lead to something special, even if it takes more than a few iterations to get there.[App Store Link]…


It's a Trap!

It's a Trap!

Yes the meme is a bit cliche now, but be honest, you all heard the voice in your heads, didn't you. Anyways, Trap Mansion is getting released tomorrow on the 30th, and while we all know about the survival horror genre, we've seen far less games in the survival genre, which this looks to be part of. It looks to have a quirky sense of humour and style, and as long as the controls for shuffling your character through this mansion of doom work well, this could be a blast. More can be found in the trailer!…
