Enter the Monochrome Lair of the Minotaur

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

Review [adult swim] By Dave Flodine, 2 years ago
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!…


Square Enix set to drop their prices?

Square Enix set to drop their prices?

It looks like there might be some wriggle room in Square Enix's often derided pricing structure. The Japanese power house's head of mobile for Europe, Antony Douglas, had some interesting things to say on the subject at the recent Casual Connect conference in Kiev. “$20 for something you can play for 30 or 40 hours is still cheaper than what you can get on a handheld.  [Square Enix] Japan are trying that and seeing how it works, and it works very well in Japan." "It has been commented on quite a lot in Europe in the West, [and] they’re responding to it.  They’re seeing the feedback, and there will probably be changes in the way that it’s structured.”…


MONOPOLY Millionaire Review

MONOPOLY Millionaire Review

There's a lot to be said for the mobile versions of Monopoly that EA have released over the years. In my experience, no game is responsible for causing more arguments amongst friends (maybe Mario Kart), so it's nice to be able to enjoy such a well designed take on capitalism playing against computer controlled opponents. For those of you who don't have a problem playing with friends, there's always that option too, and plenty of tweaks to create the type of game you want to play. So t…

Devil's Attorney Review

Devil's Attorney Review

When we think of turn based RPG combat, our minds turn to the genres of fantasy and science-fiction. I mean every now and then, you get something like Earthbound, but for the most part, the RPG genre is locked into preconceived notions of what to expect. Then along comes Devil's Attorney, which takes turn based combat, and puts it into a courtroom, where you control the scumbag lawyer Max McMann, using every dirty trick in his arsenal to free your clients from the prosecution, and all…

Dead Triggers gets new level for Halloween

Dead Triggers gets new level for Halloween

Madfinger's violent zombie slaughtering FPS is set to receive a spooky update to celebrate that most terrifying of all commercialised holidays, Halloween. The new update, which is already available on the Google Play Store, adds a new graveyard level to the game, as well as plenty of pumpkin-headed undead for you to murder in various ways. There's a new weapon to aid you in your undead massacre as well, a crossbow that fires incendiary bolts that spread fire, death, and mayhem wherever they land. iOS owners should be getting the update pretty soon, and anyone with a Android device powerful enough to run the game should have it already. To whet your appetite in the meantime, here's a spook…


Halloween iOS Bonanza

Halloween iOS Bonanza

It's the time of year where countries around the world get used to the aroma of pumpkin and spices in the air - not that I'm complaining personally because I love me some seasonal treaties, but it's nice to think we can enjoy more than just food and candy this year. As such I've collected news on a bunch of great seaonal themed updates and special deals that you can jump in on to provide you with a great distraction for the next couple weeks, or if you want to horde them, to survive the Thanksgiving season. Mikey Shorts Halloween - A Free Seasonal Taster Instead of simply changing the aesthetics of their smash hit game Mikey Shorts, Beaver Tap Games have opted to go one better, creating a…

Squids Wild West - Free For A Short Time!

We've got another great deal for you today and it could be ending any moment! Squids Wild West is the continuing saga of a group of sea-creatures out to save the world from the black goop turning everyone in to minless minions. Featuring flick-based action and a turn-based RPG system, you'll be kept busy for hours as you conquer not only the extensive main campaign, but also the many bonus missions to test your skill. The Game Bakers are offering iOS gamers a chance to pick up their amazing title for free for a limited time and I'd definitely recommend taking them up on that offer - especially as it received a 5/5 from us when it came out and has even more to offer now.

FAA's Free App of the Day – Monster Shooter: The Lost Levels

Today the FAA brings you a game I can personally recommend as it managed to suck a fair portion of my week away from me when it came out. "In this action-packed twin-stick shooter, you are tasked with shooting your way through 80 levels, 100 missions, and waves of monsters in order to save, well, a little kitten. It's hardly worth the effort, if truth be told. Thankfully, though, as the saviour of all things fluffy, you have a fully stocked armoury full of 12 upgradable weapons. So, at least you can have some fun along the way." Download it now and get the best free apps every day from the Free AppAlliance app.…

Fieldrunners 2 updated for Halloween

Subatomic Studios has updated the really rather brilliant Fieldrunners 2 just in time for Halloween, adding in a new Jack O'Lantern tower that spews out powerful gouts of fire. Called the BOOM-kin tower, the spooky new weapon in your arsenal isn't the only new addition to the game. There have been some quite extensive tweaks to the game too to increase loading time and optimise performance. As well as the behind the scenes stuff, the game now features iCloud saves, so you can play on one iOS device, and pick up where you left off on another, even crossing your saves between the iPad and IPhone versions. The updated version of the app should be in the App Store right about now, and if yo…


He-Man: The Most Powerful Game in the Universe™ Review

He-Man: The Most Powerful Game in the Universe™ Review

There's one thing Skeletor always had right about He-Man - he's a bit of a dunce. Not your typical muscle-headed stubbornness mind you, but rather a blind 'do right at all costs' sort of fellow who'll act before thinking. So it's entirely appropriate that Mattel's reboot of the series as a side-scrolling action brawler should feel just as dense, but not in the mindless 'fun' way. You, as Adam in his guise of He-Man, are tasked with stopping Skeletor from pulling off his latest scheme.…


Punch Quest Review

Punch Quest Review

So many auto-runners vie for attention now it can seem like a vast generic blur of jumping, sliding and coin-grabbing albeit with a gimmick here or there to prop it up. Punch Quest by Rocketcat Games and Madgarden makes no apologies for jumping in on the bandwagon, but it does so with as much pomp and excitement as Jetpack Joyride, while also bringing something far more interesting to the table - near endless brawling. The name says it all - your character starts and ends their…
