Hands-on with Daytona Rush, the endless racer that goes round and round and round and round and

So far I've enjoyed my time with this early version of Daytona Rush. A colourful and chunky endless racer, Daytona Rush mostly has you zipping between three lanes, trying to avoid the heavily congested tracks, all the while keeping an eye on your fuel gauge and pitting into a fourth lane to resupply. The game's out shortly, here's an early look...…

Just how much damage can your mobile gaming device withstand?

Just how much damage can your mobile gaming device withstand?

There are a lot of things to consider when deciding which mobile, tablet, or handheld device you're planning to purchase. How many people consider how much damage your device is capable of taking before it jacks it in permanently? Not enough people, I'd wager. As ever, AppSpy has got your back and has taken the liberty of investigating this delicate issue for you. We find out which of your gaming devices can withstand the most damage with assistance from Blendtec. 1. iPhone 6 Plus - One thing's for sure: the iPhone 6 Plus bends. But how does it handle itself in a swirling vaccum of blades? Ultimately, not very well to be honest but it did put up a rather impressive fight. 2. …

Soul Seeker is a mobile action RPG that's all about the team effort

Come to think of it, most action RPGs are selfish experiences. Bar a small few, you're largely on your own destroying absolutely everything in your path such as orcs or barrels just minding their own business. However, in Soul Seeker you assemble a whole team of action junkies to take on the world with. Let's hope that means you don't have to hammer the health potion button when you can get a team mate to heal you instead. Soul Seeker RIse of the Devils is out now on iOS and Android. The trailer below will give you a better look at the game and the links below will take you to the App Store and Google Play. [App Store link] [Google Play link]…

In the beginning there was Siri, then there was Cortana, and now there's GEOFF

We've been fortunate enough to get exclusive early access to GEOFF, the Gaming Entertainment Online Fact Finder. At its core, the new app -which is still currently in development - retrieves information on any game you throw at it. Angry Birds to Clash of Clans, The Room to Ridiculous Fishing, Thomas Was Alone to Tiny Tower: any game you can think of, it has statistics and trivia and facts like you wouldn't believe. Here's James to run you through some of the basics.…

Welcome to Toysburg where a lunatic skates around turning children into their favourite toys

Toysburg is a free to play sandbox game by Angry Mob Games, the developers behind Muffin Knight, that's currently in soft launch in Australia. True to form, Toysburg has a similar cartoon style and charm. You skate around turning children into their favourite toys for an as of yet unknown reason. There's a crafting system that lets you take parts from different toys to make a new toy altogether. Ever wanted to put a Viking's head on a cows body with octopus tentacles for feet? Now you can. Check out the debut trailer below to witness Toysburg's insanity for yourself. It's set to launch on the App Store and Google Play later this year.…

Porsche Cayman GT4 performs a 1080 donut wheelspin onto Real Racing 3. That's a thing, right?

Joining Real Racing 3's already overflowing roster of 4-wheeled contraptions known as cars comes the Porsche Cayman GT4. Aspiring petrolheads can win themselves a virtual version of the roadster by completing a set of in-game events, thereby appeasing the digital overlords. You can see the canary yellow beauty in action below. As far as I'm concerned, that is the only colour it should be available in. [App Store link]…

Hands-on with Cava Racing, the upcoming futuristic racer with a whole lot of potential

Cava Racing is gorgeous, there's no denying that - just hit play on the video below and you'll see. And when in a slower vehicle, the long sweeping corners and chicanes are extremely satisfying to weave through. Things get a little hair-raising when you step things up a gear though, and that needs to be worked out before launch. Luckily though, that may well not be for some time, as Cava Racing is currently very much in development, so there's still plenty of time to make the necessary tweaks.…

Hands-on with Sinking Feeling, which features very realistic glass

No but really, that glass is very very realistic. Created by the ultra talented bunch at Force of Habit, Sinking Feeling is an endless action game that starts off hard and just gets increasingly ludicrous the further you get. You don't see the next stage of difficulty in this video, but it's probably for the best, lest your eyes explode from the speed at which pixels fly about the screen. Sinking Feeling is out on the 5th of February, the App Store link for which is below this video.…

Evoland is a parody of pretty much every RPG ever and is out now on iOS and Android

What Evoland aims to do is recreate all of your finest RPG memories from the 8-bit era to modern day 3D all in one game. Evoland starts out in monochrome with turn-based battles but as you progress you'll unlock better technology until you're exploring a fully 3D version of the same world and duking it out with monsters in real time, action-packed battles. As an RPG nut, I'm already sold. For those still unsure, check out the trailer below then head on over to the App Store page beneath if it takes your fancy. [App Store link]…

Hands-on with The Ember Conflict, the soft-launched strategy game with a thing for pugs

There's a fair amount of tactical depth to The Ember Conflict, I tell you. You can grab and dominate the zones littered about each stage, or simply destroy your opponent's team through strategic play - it's up to you. I had a quick look at the soft-launched version, here's how I got on. [App Store link]…

DUO! aims to reinvent pair-em up memory games and is out tomorrow on iOS

At first glance, DUO! looks to be just like every other match-two puzzler. You tap face down cards on the board to reveal their numbers, memorising them so that you can match two in future. Where it differs here, though, is that you can go on a straight if you discover where one, two, and three are hiding, giving you more points. There are plenty of bonuses and minigames to round out DUO!'s eighty levels of regular play. Check out the trailer below in anticipation of DUO! arriving on the App Store tomorrow, 5th February.  …

6 more real versions of mobile games, featuring Scribblenauts, Peggle, Minecraft, and more

After the last time we looked at a bunch of mobile games that had been given a real world twist, I realised that there were a whole heap more we'd managed to miss. Seriously, there were some incredible videos that didn't make our list last time round. So to rectify that, let's dive straight into part 2. Angry Birds Go! - Go karting has changed since I was a kid. Peggle - Absolute bliss, and Bjorn is looking just fantastic. Minecraft: Pocket Edition - Because of course someone did a Minecraft one. Plants vs Zombies - I don't remember the game being this... epic. Scribblenauts - Excellent work (as always) from Smosh. Flappy Bird - How to make a super simple game way more comp…
