Eye on the App Store: Crazy Taxi: City Rush, Trials Frontier, and more

It's Wednesday again, which means it's nearly time for another instalment of Eye on the App Store, our weekly round-up of the week's upcoming App Store releases. First up is Crazy Taxi: City Rush, a new free-to-play Crazy Taxi game from the fellows behind Sonic Jump and Sonic Dash. It’s just been soft-launched in Canada, with the worldwide release due for a bit closer to summer. Trials Frontier, meanwhile, is the latest incarnation of the the physics-based motorcycle game series that sees you trying very hard to not fall over yet doing so regardless. We’ll also be covering Robots Love Ice Cream, SideSwype, and give you some news about Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff…

See exclusive footage of Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff

As you may have heard, Fox accidentally released Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff onto the App Store 48 hours early. Assuming it was a soft-launch rather than an accident, may people started posting videos of the game on YouTube, and streaming gameplay on Twitch. However, within hours of the app's appearance, reports appeared saying that FOX was flagging YouTube videos containing footage of the game. What's more, AppSpy community member HansKaosu had his Twitch account shut down altogether, apparantly as a result of streaming the game live. Given that the game had publicly appeared on the App Store, and that no-one did anything remotely illegal in downloading it, it seems a bit harsh that p…

The third episode of Telltales's adventure gameThe Wolf Among Us is coming to the App Store at midnight tonight. Titled 'A Crooked Mile' continues to follow the big bad sheriff, Bigby Wolf, as he investigates a string of murders in Fabletown. As always, the choices you have made in the previous episodes will impact events in the third chapter. Will Bigby release his inner animal, or remain a wolf in sheep’s clothing? It's up to you to decide. As you can see from the trailer, the combination of fairytale characters and film noir stylings give the game an impressive  Be warned, however, if you haven’t finished previous chapters, then the trailer could spoil a few…

Digital edition of classic board game Talisman receives multiplayer update

Based on Games Workshops's Talisman board game, Talisman Prologue HD came to the App Store nearly a year ago. Now, it has finally received its long promised multiplayer update, allowing you to quest with friends locally or online. Developed by Nomad Games, Talisman Prologue HD was well received when it released last year, despite only featuring a single player campaign. However, the boardgame was originally designed to be played by numerous players at once. With 10 different characters choose from, each with their own strengths and alignments, playing with friends ensures almost endless ways for the game's 50 scenarios to unfold. Board game fans who haven’t grabbed a copy of Talis…

Glowforth to release chilly platform adventure Last Inua as soon as April 23rd

Glowforth will release their debut title Last Inua on the App Store in a couple of weeks. Last Inua is a platform adventure in which you take control of an Inuit father and son duo - Ataataq and Hiko respectively - who are on a quest to save the world. You see, their world of the mythical North is under attack by the ancient demon Tonrar. And, as it transpires, Hiko, a boy gifted with supernatural powers, may be the only one who can save it. These abilities allow Hiko to turn into a ball of light to follow a set path through the air. He can also create a path of light which allows him and his father to easily navigate difficult, or non-existant, terrain. It is up to Ataataq, then, to p…

Star Wars: Assault Team Review

Star Wars: Assault Team Review

We don't mind admitting that we were excited as we started playing the free-to-play Star Wars: Team Assault. It wasn't the Star Wars fanfare that set our nostalgia glands tingling. That lost its potency long ago. Nope, it was the scenario that got our sabres flaring. Starting just after the original film, you take control of Han Solo as he attempts to infiltrate the Empire. With Han, Chewie, and R2-D2 in your squad, you'd be forgive for thinking the story might evolve into something s…

Arcade racer Crazy Taxi: City Rush has been soft-launched in Canada

Sega's mobile spin-off of the Crazy Taxi series, Crazy Taxi: City Rush, has just been soft launched in Canada. If, like us, the sound of the sound of The Offspring's 'All I Want' still makes you want to jump over KFC in a bright yellow taxi, then you might be feeling pretty stoked about now. Crazy Taxi: City Rush features a whole new city to speed around as you pick up passengers and deliver them to their destination. Successfully completing missions and challenges will help you earn more cash, enabling you to customise your cab, and open up more areas of the city to gain access to bigger fares.

Fairway Solitaire Blast Review

Review Big Fish Games, Inc By Alex Beech, 2 weeks, 1 day ago
Fairway Solitaire Blast Review

The original Fairway Solitaire's blend of golf and cards was superb. Its simple take on solitaire was fun and immediate, while the golf elements encouraged you to minimise moves to come in under par. Fairway Solitaire Blast retains the original's slick solitaire gameplay. Once again, your enjoyment of this will be dependent on your appreciation of solitaire. However, Blast’s streamlined gameplay kept us entertained as we attempted to clear each board as efficiently as possi…

The Boom Beach Diary - Week 1

The Boom Beach Diary - Week 1

I've been playing Supercell's Clash of Clans follow-up Boom Beach for some time now, expanding my base and conquering enemy islands ever since the game was soft launched. Now that the game is available to everyone, and the community around it is growing rapidly, I decided to put together a series of video diaries to document my continued progress. We kick things off at a fairly respectable Level 17, which is several hours into the game. However, I'm not happy with my Home Base layout, and I'm constantly running out of the Wood resource, so I definitely need to make some improvements. Take a look at the diary below, and throw any advice you have in the comments...…

Tiny Thief gets magical new Bewitched chapter in latest update

Cutesy point-and-click adventure game Tiny Thief has just received an update which gives you access to a brand new chapter. Titled Bewitched, Tiny Thief's new level sees the King kidnapped by the Wicked Witch. Taking control of the pint-sized pilferer, it is your task to rescue him from her evil clutches. You can only fight fire with fire, however, so this episode has the little tea-leaf turning to the dark arts in order to fight off the witch’s spells. We really enjoyed Tiny Thief’s mix of platform and adventure elements. Its charming art style and clever puzzles earned it a strong recommendation, despite its relatively ease and brevity of the six original adventur…
