iOS 5 For iPhone and iPad Brings iCloud, Notification Center, and AirPlay Mirroring

iOS 5 For iPhone and iPad Brings iCloud, Notification Center, and AirPlay Mirroring

By the time you get around to reading this article, Apple's iOS 5 will probably be available to download. Here's what you'll be tinkering with after you finally install the highly anticipated software update. The biggest new addition in Apple's iOS 5 is Notification Center, which groups together your text messages, game pop-ups, Twitter mentions, and Facebook tags into one big hub. This can be accessed by simply swiping downwards from the top of your device's screen. iOS 5 also comes with Apple's iCloud, a service that wirelessly backs up and syncs your contacts, calendars, music, documents, and - most importantly - gaming data across your iOS devices. For fans of big-screen g…


Danger Alliance: Battles Review

Danger Alliance: Battles Review

It's not as though we haven't seen developers attempt to bring tactical turn-based titles to the App Store before, though they've generally made a critical mistake or two preventing the often overlooked genre from seeing a sort of revival. Danger Alliance: Battles by TOME Studios keeps things simple, but if you think this means the combat is any less intense for its simplicity you'd be wrong. At the beginning of each match you are able to select a squad from a mix of six unique classe…

Warm Gun Review

Warm Gun Review

I can almost hear my own Mom scalding me in my own memories as I play Warm Gun by Emotional Robots. Though scarily it's not actually her voice, but my own saying 'Just because you can, doesn't mean you should'. It's a worrying moment, but the point still remains - it's true that the iPhone is slowly claiming territory once thought of as exclusive to dedicated handheld or even home consoles, but a bland and featureless FPS deathmatch game does nothing to move iOS forward in this directi…

Miniclip's Monster Island Gets Updated With 63 New Levels, 6 New Characters

Miniclip's Monster Island Gets Updated With 63 New Levels, 6 New Characters

Miniclip have treated Fragger-esque puzzler Monster Island to a rather substantial update, which adds 63 new levels to an already packed game. That means there are now 252 levels and four different worlds for you to blast through. The additions don't stop there, though, since the refresh also brings with it six brand-new characters. For those looking to upgrade their critters, too, a 'limited-time' in-game store sale allows you to grab the game's monsters at 50 percent off their normal asking price. Monster Island, which earned a 4/5 at review, charges you with destroying waves of mutant thugs by hurling a selection of different bombs at them. As your detonation skills imp…


Rocket Claw Review

Rocket Claw Review

Oh those darn humans, they've gone and got themselves all lost and floating around space... what's a simple rescue-bot to do? Thankfully the rescue robot in Rocket Claw by Fugazo has a trick up its sleeve and it doesn't take a genius to guess whether the name of the game has anything to do with it. Upon starting up the game you're presented with the charming, claw-wielding robot CLAWD. and all you have to do is tap the screen to launch a rocket-propelled claw to grab on to crystals, p…

HighFlyer DeathDefyer (i4) Review

HighFlyer DeathDefyer (i4) Review

Barring those who have a dreaded fear of heights I'm sure a lot of people dream of being able to fly. The idea of being able to take off and own the sky can be so overwhelming that people jump off high points just to experience the sensation of freedom it brings, no matter how brief. HighFlyer DeathDefyer by Game Mechanic Studios is all about an explorer living in a world thrown high in to the sky; where free-falling means you can make a living claiming remnants of Earth's past. After…

Grab A Slice Of Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots On 20th October

Grab A Slice Of Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots On 20th October

Having written about one Best of 2010 iPhone game from an Australian developer only last week, we're turning the spotlight onto another App Store diamond cut Down Under. Halfbrick's Fruit Ninja finished 9th in our end-of-year rundown and shifted copies by the million - ten, to be precise - to voracious consumers worldwide, more than justifying the gamble the studio took when releasing the game exclusively on iOS devices. Now, the Aussie devs are set to take the Fruit Ninja franchise to the next level by jumping on the movie tie-in bandwagon, whose passengers already include Angry Birds Rio, Horrid Henry, and Doodle Jump: Hop. In collaboration with the makers of the forthcoming motion pict…


Anthill Review

Anthill Review

The ants are marching and god help you if you get in their way! With the iPhone's innovative use of touch controls, it's been nice to see a glut of strategy games available. What Anthill: Tactical Trail Defense does is put a unique spin on real time strategy gameplay by combining finger drawn paths with resource management and unit upgrades. The goal of each level is to withstand the waves of attacking insects, and to protect your anthill. You do this by creating ants to defend your h…

Super Cyclone Review

Review Miniclip.com By Dave Flodine, 3 years ago
Super Cyclone Review

Oops, we seem to have stumbled upon another twin stick shooter. Luckily for us, not only is Super Cyclone well made, but as you would hope of every addition to the genre, it adds a couple neat little things to the standard 'fly around and blast stuff' gameplay. First off, the controls are nice and responsive. The ship has a tight turn to it, but this never leaves you without an evasive escape opportunity when the enemy ships come. The goal of each level is to defend the stargate from…

Squishys Revenge Review

Squishys Revenge Review

It seems unfeasible that a sliding tile puzzle game featuring a cute little blob named Squishy has a anti-corporate bent to it, but the evidence seems to be right there on the screen. Oh sure the story tells you that the evil Dr. Spudget has stolen all the Squishberries and it's up to Squishy to take revenge... but you do this by setting skyscrapers aflame, many of which seem to be alive. You monster! Each level gives you so many turns before Squishy moves. You need to flick tiles wit…

Piggy Adventure Review

Piggy Adventure Review

We've seen quite a few games use the concept of some evil force draining the world of color and the player having to help the main characters restore vibrancy. Piggy's adventure would be the first time that this concept was completely divorced from the gameplay. As three barnyard animal painters, you need to color the black and white world of Avelon, but upon playing the game, one will notice immediately that someone has already beat them to the job. Using either tilt controls or on s…

4-Player Split-Screen Mode Incoming In Real Racing 2 Via AirPlay Mirroring

To no great surprise whatsoever, Firemint's technically astounding Real Racing 2 roared onto AppSpy's round-up of 2010's best games in January. Improvements in the graphical, handling, and multiplayer departments were obvious even to the untrained eye, yet Real Racing 2's creators Firemint want to push the technological envelope further. One of the most intriguing - and potentially revolutionary - elements from a gaming perspective in the forthcoming iOS 5 software update is AirPlay Mirroring, which pipes content from an iPhone 4S onto a HD TV wirelessly. And Real Racing 2 will be one of the first iPhone titles to take advantage of this new feature once iOS 5 is made available to the publ…
