News Wrap-Up | 20th September 2013

Feature By James Gilmour, 10 months, 1 week ago
News Wrap-Up | 20th September 2013

Having only just gotten Asphalt 8: Airborne out the garage door, Gameloft is trying to get us back behind the wheel again with it upcoming winter release GT Racer 2. Subtitled "The real car experience" we naturally assumed the game will involve dropping the kids off at school, before getting lost on the Basingstoke ring road, and then accidentally running over a badger. Judging by the trailer, though, it looks like this'll be another sim racer in the mould of 2K Drive and Real Racing III. The finished game should feature 67 cars from 35 different manufacturers, though the footage focuses exclusively on Mercedez models. You'll also get real tracks, plus single-player and multiplayer mode…


The Answer

The Answer

Hey there loyal Appspy readers! I’m not sure if this week’s question was either too easy to answer, or too difficult, but I’m definitely happy with the responses! We had a couple people excited for both Oceanhorn and Device 6, and a conversation broke about about the upcoming Modern Combat 5, and the series in general. Geosam brought up Runner2, and that being one of my favourite games of the year so far (when it was released on PC), I am certainly looking forward to that. However, I think that the game I might be looking forward to the most was one of the game trailers that came out the same day as the iPhone announcement last week. That game is Rayman Fiesta Run. Rayma…


Angry Birds Star Wars II Review

Angry Birds Star Wars II Review

You like Star Wars, right? Well, you did before they did those three rubbish films. Maybe the new one will be good. I hear the Star Trek bloke's doing it. He knows about... stars... And Angry Birds! You like Angry Birds, right? With the flinging and the smashing and that pause before the level ends when you're waiting for everything to stop moving. Yes, you guessed it: The birds are back and the force is with them once again. Angry Birds Star Wars II delivers another instalment of b…

GT Racing 2 announced

News By Dave Flodine, 10 months, 1 week ago
GT Racing 2 announced

Fans of racing games usually fall into two main categories, and then split off into many sub categories from there. These are the simulation racer, and the arcade race. In the realm of arcade racing Gameloft has done pretty well with its Asphalt series, but now they are returning to the simulation side of things with GT Racing 2: The Real Car Experience (yes that is the game's name). Have a watch of the trailer. It's not really a trailer these days without a dubstep break is it? The game looks impressive visually, and is reported to feature sixty seven cars, and a collection of real world tracks in both single and multiplayer. We'll see how it stacks up against current contemporaries…


iOS7 increases its wireless download limit to 100mb

iOS7 increases its wireless download limit to 100mb

Sometimes it can be a real hassle to retrieve your iPhone cable to transfer a bunch of new games and apps. Apple has become aware of how many people like to download on the go over the years, increasing the limit of how much data can be transfered bit by bit (heh). For the last year the limit has been 50mb, and while this has been great, the games and apps available are always becoming larger, and more robust. This calls for additional download capacity. That must be why with their latest iOS update, Apple have increased the over-the-air download limit to 100mb. This will alleviate some of the pressure from those on the go who wish to engage in some new app grabbing. Of course at home, you…


Transport Tycoon hitting the App Store in October

Transport Tycoon hitting the App Store in October

For those of you who fondly remember 1994's Transport Tycoon, you might be interested to hear that it has been designed for touch screens and is releasing on iOS on the third of October. From the mind of Chris Sawyer who started with this humble franchise before moving onto the Rollercoaster Tycoon games, this port has been made with much deliberation on how to transfer the rich simulation gameplay of the PC version onto the iOS. There's also a trailer! A word of caution: the tycoon games usually whittle the hours away. Approach at your own risk!…


Infinity Blade III Review

Infinity Blade III Review

So here we are again. Infinity Blade has returned for what may be its final episode of slashtastic god-battering action. The world is bigger, the weapons are more plentiful, and the RPG elements have been applied with a little more vigour. There's even a more traditional linear structure, which funnels your warriors through specific stages and locations in a set order. But, while the beast may have grown and visited an armoury, its beating heard remains unchanged. Infinity Blade III i…

Orborun out in the App Store tomorrow

Orborun out in the App Store tomorrow

Orborun starts off deceptively as looking like just another runner, but this robot has a special power; he can roll! Have a look at the trailer and see for yourself. I'm getting a Super Monkey Ball vibe from what I see here, and that's a good thing (I love that game). Apparently Orborun is more about chaining together tricks for a high score, which should lend some replayability and leaderboard chasing to its ninety levels. We'll be looking to review this one as soon as we get our hands on it.…

Grand Theft Auto Face-Off

In case you haven't seen Twitter today (or Facebook, or the news) Grand Theft Auto V came out on consoles this morning. While Rockstar did release a companion app for iOS called iFruit which lets you tap into your GTA V experience via Rockstar's Social Club, it's not a GTA game in its own right. However, the past few years have seen no less than three classic Grand Theft Auto games arrive on the App Store. Question is, which one is our favourite? Let's find out, shall we?  …


Halfbrick's newest collaboration Band Stars soft launches in Australia, and Canada

Halfbrick's newest collaboration Band Stars soft launches in Australia, and Canada

Halfbrick have teamed up with developer Six Foot Kid to release Band Stars. The game is out now in Australia and Canada, and will be a free release in the rest of the world later on in the year. Take a look at the debut trailer. From the trailer, Band Stars looks to be more sim game than rhythm game, picking band members, a genre, and mixing the song in the studio in order to top the charts with that number one hit. You can train your members, undertake band challenges, and even decorate your own studio. Seeing the game is out in my native country, I'll be grabbing it today, and you should see a soft launch review or impressions piece soon.…


Giant Boulder of Death Review

Giant Boulder of Death Review

You might ask, “What motivation for destruction could a giant boulder possibly have to go on a gravity-powered killing spree?" That's a fair question, one that Adult Swim's Giant Boulder of Death attempts to answer. You see, a pompous general has turned your loved one into a statue of himself. So, in a fit of rage, our rocky hero decide to roll down a hill crushing everything in his path. The game follows the endless-runner formula of play, upgrade, and then play some more.…

Strata Review

Review Graveck By Dave Flodine, 10 months, 2 weeks ago
Strata Review

Strata is a ribbon-based puzzle game that requires a large amount of forethought. Though we often rally behind puzzle games which give our fingers something to do while our brains dissect the problem, you might be surprised to learn that we took to Strata in a big way. It's a game about laying coloured ribbons on grid filled with coloured tiles. Criss-crossing two ribbons over a tile activates the colour beneath. The catch is that the tile will only light up if the ribbon layed on top…

The Question

Hello there loyal Appspy readers! It’s another Monday and it is of course time for another question. Last week there was a new iPhone announcement, and along with it came a plethora of game trailers for upcoming releases (with Infinity Blade III being revealed at the keynote speech itself). With such franchises as Trials, Rayman, and Assassin’s Creed on their way to iOS (and no doubt more announcements to come), my question for you is a simple one this week. Which game slated for release before the end of the year are you most excited for? Let us know in the comments, and i’ll let you know my pick at the end of the week. With luck, there might be even more developments b…
