Roadhouse brings Warhammer 40K to iOS

News By Harry Slater, 1 year, 1 month ago
Roadhouse brings Warhammer 40K to iOS

If you're the sort who likes to spend a good chunk of your time rolling dice and having pretend wars with your friends then this bit of business-y news is probably going to be quite interesting for you. Roadhouse Interactive has announced that it's secured a deal with Games Workshop to produce a smartphone and tablet game set in the Warhammer 40K universe. It's not going to be the grand strategy title you might expect though. Instead it'll be a side-scrolling action adventure that casts you as a lone Space Marine battling against a never-ending horde of Orks. Sounds to us like a twist on the endless runner with some massive weapons and splashes of gore thrown in. Think the recent He-man g…


Friday News Wrap-Up 22 March 2013

Friday News Wrap-Up 22 March 2013

With Easter just around the corner, I'm sure you're keen to know what's in store... well we have that and more in the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 22nd of March, 2013. So, let's dive in!   Dropchord - Double Fine Drops The Mic A few weeks back the boffins at Double Fine Productions let the world know about their upcoming rhythm title 'Dropchord'. While the game is aimed primarily at a release on the PC using the 'Leap Motion Controller', Double Fine also said it will be hitting touch screen devices as well. Aside from that it's anyone's guess how this game will play, so all we can do is wait for the iOS release! Fez - 'Highly Probable' For iOS Phil Fish, the brains behind Fez recent…


Pug Run Review

Review Tic Toc Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 1 month ago
Pug Run Review

[This game was featured as the Mini-Review for the Friday News Wrap-Up for the 22nd of March, 2013] I love pugs. There's nothing strange about that; many people love pugs and I happen to wear it on my sleeve. Their derpy eyes, their inability to breathe properly, their innate clumsy nature... what's not to love? So I empathize with the boy in Pug Run who is denied owning a puppy, and in his frustration he draws comic after comic of him and his dream 'best friend'. That's where you com…

The Legend of Talisman

I know, i know... Match-3 game. Have a look at the trailer of this upcoming title though and I think you'll discover an interesting new twist on the genre. The game is set for release on April 12th…


Kingpin Lanes Review

Review Speedbump By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 1 month ago
Kingpin Lanes Review

This is our third time out playing a game from Speedbump Studios and the developer is starting to show a distinctive theme throughout them all. Kingpin Lanes may be a fairly simple and arcade-ish ten pin bowling title, but it's married to a free-roaming, interactive world, engaging the player in a way few other games would even attempt to try. Think of your character as a living, breathing individual who enjoys visiting the local lanes to make a little bit of extra cash by wagering on…

New Breach and Clear screens

News By Harry Slater, 1 year, 1 month ago
New Breach and Clear screens

Some new screen shots have emerged for Breach and Clear, the iOS and Android game currently being developed by Mighty Rabbit Studios, the people behind the pretty impressive Saturday Morning RPG series, with some help from former Infinity Ward man Robert Bowling. As you can see we've embedded a couple of images in the story and, to be honest, they look pretty bland. It's a top down, tactical shooter with a reasonably impressive level of detail but an awful lot of brown and dull green thrown in too. Of course, the game will probably look much more interesting when it's moving, but right now colour me underwhelmed. There's no set release date for Breach and Clear, but you can expect it…


Fetch™ iPad Review

Review Big Fish Games, Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 1 month ago
Fetch™ iPad Review

Let me start this review by removing those of you who can't get past a game having a low level of challenge - Fetch is aimed at younger audiences, and as such you're not going to find the 'hardcore' experience you may expect of all games. With that said, Fetch by Big Fish Games is the gaming equivalent of a Dreamworks or Pixar movie: despite being designed for younger audiences, adults aren't left out of the equation either thanks to the wonderful story that pulls on your heart strings…

Dropchord Teaser Trailer

News By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 1 month ago
Dropchord Teaser Trailer

So Doublefine, the makers of games such as Psychonauts and Brutal Legend have an iOS game on the way. It's called Dropchord. All we know about it is that it's a rhythm game, and a teaser trailer was just released. And here it is! The trailer just confuses me further honestly, but Doublefine do have a good track record for unique games so we'll have to wait and see when more information is released.…


Le Vamp Review

Review High Voltage Software By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 1 month ago
Le Vamp Review

Oh the woes of being a vampire child. You want to go outside and play... but you're a vampire! In Le Vamp, it's up to you as the player to protect the titular tike as he frolics through the forest, and by frolic, I mean evading capture by an angry mob of villagers, staying nourished on delicious blood pigs, avoiding the sunlight, and not getting hamstrung by all the other nasty things that lurk with-in. It's a harder job than it sounds. Every obstacle has a gesture assigned to it. Fli…

FFV heading to the App Store

FFV heading to the App Store

It looks like Square Enix is continuing its retro assault on tablet and smartphone gaming with the news that Final Fantasy V is set for release on iOS devices. The news was broken over at Japanese site FF Reunion, which showed scans from a Japanese gaming mag featuring an advert for the game. The iOS release is set to be based on the GBA version of FFV, and will feature updated 2D graphics. First release in 1992 for the SNES, the game tells the story of a group of adventurers who are trying to stop a demon from being released from a sealed realm. There's some amnesia, turn based battling, and silly names thrown in for good measure too. Plus you can customise your characters thanks to an in…


Collapsticks Review

Review Rumilus Design By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 1 month ago
Collapsticks Review

You know those puzzles where you have a bunch of matchsticks arranged in a particular pattern, then by simply moving one or more you can create something entirely different? Yeah, Collapsticks isn't anything like that (sorry about the swerve), but it's still a puzzler with fairly cut and dry solutions. This last part is something to note given that the game uses a fairly realistic physics engine to handle collisions. However, with the board being preset with all the pieces in place, t…

Unmechanical Review

Review Teotl Studios By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 1 month ago
Unmechanical Review

The development of Unmechanical has undergone several stages, with the first of these being a ten minute or so title created as part of an educational program in Sweden. From there it went on to become a full-fledged puzzler for the PC on the Steam platform, and now almost a year after that we have the iOS version. You play as a lost and somewhat confused unnamed robot stuck in a vast underground network of machinery. With nothing more than your wits and a small tractor beam you'll ne…

Ryan Seacrest announces Draw Something 2

Zynga and OMGPop have announced that Draw Something 2, the sequel to the smash hit game everyone stopped playing about a year ago, will be released in the not too distant future. And for some reason they announced it via Ryan Seacrest. Seacrest took to twitter to post a picture he'd created using the new app, and shortly afterwards OMGPop CEO Dan Porter replied to that tweet, thanking Seacrest and confirming that the new game is on the way. So far there are no details save what was included in those brief missives. Although according to Porter Draw Something 2 will feature new ways to “draw and connect”. Maybe you can use your elbows to doodle this time. The original Draw Some…


Stargate SG-1: Unleashed Ep 1 Review

Review Arkalis Interactive By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 1 month ago
Stargate SG-1: Unleashed Ep 1 Review

I have a deep, dark secret to reveal. Actually it's not all that dark, and possibly not that secret to those who know me - I like the Stargate TV series... So much so I was worried it would be a problem coming in to reviewing Arkalis Interactive's adventure title 'Stargate SG-1: Unleashed', but after the initial geeky glow wore off, what was left was a game worthy of the name, but still in need of improvement. Unleashed takes its cues from the Telltale Games playbook of designing a mo…
