Dead Effect - A Sci-fi Horror FPS for iOS

Dead Effect - A Sci-fi Horror FPS for iOS

Man that's a lot of shorthand. Now I could be jaded and talk about the game wanting to be Dead Space, what with the 'lonely derelict vessel invaded by unknown horrors' vibe it's got going, but I have to say that watching the trailer kind of impressed me. Have a look... It seems to be a very competent entry into the genre with a high level of presentation. As long as the controls are halfway decent (as no developer has really worked out a way to get an FPS controlling well on iOS), this might be a great portable shooting experience.  Release date is slated somewhere in July or August.…


Dragons to Swarm

Dragons to Swarm

It's always interesting to see the genre trends on the App Store. Once one game makes it big, you have other devs either cashing in or looking to improve the formula. With the success of games like Galcon Labs and Tentacle Wars, Dragon Swarm has been released on the iPad. It's the same kind of strategy title... but with dragons! Have a look at the trailer. This title focuses on multiplayer matches, and it does look pretty nuts. The game got released this week so give it a pick up and tell us what you think if you are so inclined.[App Store Link]…


Bad Piggies gets a new update

Bad Piggies gets a new update

Rovio's Bad Piggies are at it again, with a content update that adds fifteen new levels, two new contraptions, a new sandbox, and a new replay function to the porcine based physics puzzler. The new tools at your disposal are suction cup tyres, which let you drive up walls, and spring loaded boxing gloves that allow you to power your pigs with some well placed punches. Perhaps the biggest draw of the update however is a new replay mode. Here you can record and share your favourite piggy escapades, showing friends across your favourite social networks just how brilliant your plans and contraptions are. The update is live right now on the App Store and it'll cost you nothing at all, which as…


Leviathan: Warships iPad Review

Review Paradox Interactive By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 2 months ago
Leviathan: Warships iPad Review

Did anyone ever play any of the Combat Mission games? This question is being asked because if you have, you will immediately understand how the gameplay of Leviathan Warships by Paradox Interactive functions. While most strategy titles are put into sub-genres by whether their battles play out in real time or turn by turn, Leviathan Warships combines these by separating the turn based and real time play styles into a planning and execution phase. Unlike Combat Mission, the gameplay here…

FREEQ Review

Review Psychic Bunny By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 2 months ago
FREEQ Review

Radio drama is making a comeback. Before television, people used to listen to serialised programming on their wireless, tuning into tales of mystery, intrigue, drama, and action. Games like Freeq show that the medium is still as engaging as ever, but perhaps that's also due to the interactivity. See, not only content with telling you a story of apocalypse and time travel, Freeq has you making choices to influence the outcome of this future that has yet to be written. Freeqing is a tec…


The 10th of May is Carmageddon Day

The 10th of May is Carmageddon Day

Everyone's favourite over the top violent racing game is celebrating its release on the 10th of May. How is it celebrating you ask? By having 24 hours as a free app. That's right, if you don't own Carmageddon on iOS, on the 10th of May it will be free. How can you pass up such an offer? Well, if you're still on the fence about the game, check out our review from last year, and that should be enough to lean you in either direction. What other game has a 'cunning stunt bonus'?…

Augmented Reality Jenga

JengAR got release today on the App Store. Are you a fan of toppling tower board game Jenga? Do you own an iPad*? Do you find augmented reality interesting? If you answered "yes" to all those questions, JengAR might interest you. Have a look at the trailer! *The game is available for iPhone as well, but it looks to be much more interesting with the added screen space the iPad provides. And that name is just fun to say. Jengar! [App Store Link]…


Star Command Review

Review Star Command, LLC By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 2 months ago
Star Command Review

Star Command has been on the radar for a few years now, being the result of two kickstarter campaigns (one before Double Fine made crowd-sourcing mainstream), and a lot of ambitious ideas. The game that has been released is a small section of the developers' original vision, and what was supposed to be a grand entry into the mobile 4x genre plays like an interesting take on games like Faster Than Light. Even though we're dealing with a smaller scope here, there's still a great experien…

Future Building in 2020: My Country - Available Now on the Appstore

Future Building in 2020: My Country - Available Now on the Appstore

Just hitting the App Store yesterday is 2020: My Country, a Simcity-esque game where you need to look after the denizens of the future, protecting them from hazards such as meteor showers and dinosaur. As a bonus, all the character faces are kind of unsettling and creepy looking, at least in my opinion. Have a look at the trailer, and if you like what you see, pick it up on the App Store.

Bastion on sale on the App Store

If you haven't played Supergiant Games's breathtakingly good looking RPG Bastion yet then you're running out of excuses because for a limited time it's available on the App Store for the ridiculously cheap price of 99c. In our 5/5 review we described the game as “a wonderful adaption of an outstanding action title and one that feels at home on the App Store thanks to its control modifications”, heaping praise on its stunning visuals and clever controls. There's hours of game to sink your teeth into here, with ten upgradeable weapons to master, and more than forty gorgeous hand drawn environments for you to explore. So if you're after a challenging adventure that'll keep you pla…

Paper Titans Review

Review Blitz Games Studios Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 2 months ago
Paper Titans Review

It's rare, but every now and then a visual style for a game comes along that makes us say, “Huh, I wonder why no one has thought of that before”. Kirby's Epic Yarn is a good example, with its arts and crafts look that gave that game not only a unique visual vibe, but affected the mechanics as well. Paper Titans is one of these games, basing its entire visual style on the world of papercraft, and it pulls it off magnificently. Still, this is a game we're talking about, and i…

Duke Nukem II - Interview with Interceptor Entertainment

Duke Nukem II - Interview with Interceptor Entertainment

Before leaving, Andrew had conducted an interview with Interceptor Entertainment over their recent release of Duke Nukem II on the App Store (our review can be found here). What follows are a few short answers to questions about porting the PC classic, and the future projects of the dev team. Enjoy!   Q1: What appealed about Duke Nukem II so much that you just had to bring it to the iOS platform? A: Duke Nukem II was a great game for its time, and a lot of us grew up with the classic DOS platformers. We felt that the iOS market and mobile market in general had to be re-introduced to these classic dos games that helped shape the game industry as it is today, and Duke nu…

Trailer for Dracula 4: The Shadow of the Dragon

Fans of cheesy adventure games on their iOS devices will be happy to hear that a teaser trailer has dropped for Dracula 4, the latest installment in the Dracula series by Microids. We reviewed the first game a long long time ago (back when I was still creating the video content), and I imagine that the pros and cons of that game are mostly relevant for this newest release. One thing is certain... we travel to Budapest! The game is set to come out sometime during the summer this year (that's summer for the northern hemisphere, so within the next couple of months)!…
