Hands-on with Boulder Jack, where Crash Bandicoot meets Raiders of the Lost Ark

Hands-on with Boulder Jack, where Crash Bandicoot meets Raiders of the Lost Ark

You know that bit in the first Indiana Jones movie where Indy is running through the cave trying to avoid being crushed by a gigantic rolling boulder? Well, imagine if, instead of Harrison Ford in a fetching fedora, the part of Indy was played by '90s platforming icon Crash Bandicoot. And, instead of escaping the death boulder and falling at the feet of a tribe of angry natives, Indy just kept running and running forever, collecting coins and dodging explosive crates. Yeah. That's pretty much Boulder Jack. Check out the video for proof.…


Hands-on with Ninja Escape, the Timberman-style leap-'em-up with agile pandas

Hands-on with Ninja Escape, the Timberman-style leap-'em-up with agile pandas

Timberman made a bit of a splash in the twitch genre when it arrived on mobile earlier this year. The simple premise - cut down a tree without being crushed by branches - combined with the super simple controls and score-chasing momentum made it a fantastic and compulsive little time killer. Ninja Escape is cut very much from Timberman's compulsive cloth. In fact, the games have a huge amount in common. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? Check out the video above to find out.…

Yesterday evening, James and Peter of AppSpy casted a critical eye over four iOS stunt racers in a rather lively Twitch streaming session.

Just don't forget to hit that lovely 'follow' button before you leave.…


The Witcher Adventure Game is out now on Android

The Witcher Adventure Game is out now on Android

Unless you've been living under a rock (or you don't care much for RPGs) chances are you've heard of The Witcher series. These excellent low-fantasy RPGs tell the tale of Geralt, the eponymous witcher (or 'mutant monster hunter' to the laymen), following the events of the novels written by Andrzej Sapkowski. Well, Geralt has now made the trip over to Android in the form of a digital board game based on the books, rather than the games. Triss Merigold, Yarpen Zigrin, and Dandelion the bard all feature as playable characters alongside Geralt, as you travel across a digital cardboard Rivia completing quests and slaying monsters. Check out the trailer below for a peek at how it plays in all i…


13 dubstep remixes of hit mobile games - number 4 sounds like an indecisive Optimus Prime wondering whether or not to transform and roll out

13 dubstep remixes of hit mobile games - number 4 sounds like an indecisive Optimus Prime wondering whether or not to transform and roll out

Dubstep and video games have a bizarrely lengthy history together, with all sorts of dubstep remixes of classic console and PC games to be found across YouTube. Mobile specific game remixes are a little more hard to find, but they're out there, and they're quite something to behold. Here's 13 of the very best. 1. Plants vs Zombies - Let's start off strong: this one's brilliant 2. Chrono Trigger - Nothing conveys the heartache Frog suffers like a dubstep cannon 3. Angry Birds - Because obviously there's a dubstep remix of the Angry Birds theme 4. Pac-Man - Apparently you can get this as a ringtone. Ace 5. Tetris - Yeah, alright, I see what you're doing here 6. Clash of Clans…

Ski Safari - An innocent skiier wakes up to an avalanche and does whatever he can to survive, including r…

The Android JRPG love-in continues with Heavenstrike Rivals

The now and future king of JRPGs, Square Enix, has gone ahead and made my Christmas dreams come true by announcing a brand new mobile JRPG IP in Heavenstrike Rivals. Heading to both Android and iOS for free this winter, Heavenstrike Rivals is a tactical RPG built from the ground up with mobile in mind. There'll be tappy tactical battles, PvP, over 200 characters to fight with, and a dramatic plot revolving around a pack of monsters trying to destroy a peaceful aerial kingdom. Add in music and characters designed by Final Fantasy alumni Ryoma Ito and Ryo Yamazaki of Tactics Advance and XIV respectively and it looks like we'll have a serious JRPG on ou…


Peter Molyneux's controversial F2P god game Godus arrives on Android, both versions receive new social doodads

Peter Molyneux's controversial F2P god game Godus arrives on Android, both versions receive new social doodads

After a few months of waiting, Godus is now out on Android devices, bringing Peter Molyneux and 22cans' vision of what a modern god game should be to Google Play. If you somehow missed the original release on iOS (and PC), Godus is a divisive building and management game that asks you to sculpt the land, gain followers, and directly influence the direction of your little populace. Pretty much everyone agrees that it looks the part, but the free-to-play aspects have reportedly put some noses out of line. This Android version is the very latest build and includes all updates and improvements made to the title thus far, including all the challenges from the Frontier Age. Both this and the iOS…

Worms 3 gets Christmas update, Santa now delivering festive air strikes

Is there anything more embarrassing to a gamer than having your last Worm poked off a cliff edge by another Worm? Yes: having your last Worm poked off a cliff edge by a Worm wearing a ridiculous Christmas hat. Or perhaps blithely tripping over (and setting off) an explosive Christmas Pudding Mine. Getting Air Striked by Kris Kringle would turn your face pretty red too. All of which is now 100% more likely to happen, now that Team17 has given Worms 3 a Christmas update, which you can see in the gameplay video below. Get Worms 3 on iOS or Android via the links below.

Proun+ Review

Review Engine Software By James Gilmour, 2 weeks, 5 days ago
Proun+ Review

Some racers are fast. Some are beautiful. Some have banging soundtracks and a selection of entertaining modes. But few have all these elements - especially on iOS. Against all the odds, however, Proun+ delivers all of the above strengths in a single, scintillatingly arty package. Pocket Gamer's Harry Slater loved it, and you find out why by checking out the video review above.…

Offroad Legends 2 Review

Offroad Legends 2 Review

Trials has a lot to answer for. Since the re-emergence of the popular 2.5D stunt racer there have been many similar games released to capitalise on its popularity. Offroad Legends took the Trials formula, swapped out the stunt bike for hefty 4x4 trucks, and added a few explosions for good measure. Now the sequel has arrived, and Pocket Gamer's Harry Slater has delivered his verdict. Check out of the video above to hear it.…

The 4 worst Fail Hard fails, and 4 best Fail Hard wins

The 4 worst Fail Hard fails, and 4 best Fail Hard wins

When you fail hard in Fail Hard, you fail hard. But the flipside of this is that any victories, demonstrations of skill, or general signs of competence are met with hushed reverence or whooping excitement. I think this is best demonstrated via these replays I've found on Everyplay. Let's start with the bad replays, the ones that make you think “hey, you actually might be a danger to yourself in real life if you're this bad at Fail Hard. That's a pretty terrible start... … but that's a worse start. You know you've messed up bad when you wind up in a bin... … and you've got to screw up real bad to break the game entirely. These last four are actually pretty…

Touch Racing 2 has had a silly amount of downloads on iOS, and it's now out on Android too

Touch Racing 2 has had 2 million downloads on iOS. That's a lot of downloads. Which is fair enough, because the game's pretty darn solid. There are loads of modes and tracks, tons of upgrades and cosmetic tweaks, and strong touch-based controls - all of which you can see in our hands-on video of an earlier iOS build. Fancy taking Touch Racing 2 out for a spin? Grab it via the links below the trailer. [App Store link][Google Play link]  …
