Hands-on with Beat the Beat, the indie shmup firing on all dubstep cannons

Hands-on with Beat the Beat, the indie shmup firing on all dubstep cannons

Coming to iOS, Android, and Windows Phone in summer of 2015, Beat the Beat is a rhythm action dubstep shooter, in which the enemies are brought into play and react to the music being played. As you can probably expect, this combo of dynamic and bass heavy beats, mixing with intense shooting and dodging makes for some incredibly gameplay - gameplay that really needs to be seen (and heard) to be believed. Which is exactly what you can do by pressing play on the video below.…

Hands-on with Fast & Furious: Legacy, Kabam's new drift and drag racer

Fast & Furious: Legacy is currently in soft-launch in Denmark, and since the original game was so gosh darn popular I simply had to go see if this new one is up to the same standard of the series. It's certainly well within Kabam's wheelhouse: a drag and drift racer with some auto-runner elements included for good measure too. Here's how it looks, if you have a Danish account you can grab it from the link under the video. [App Store link]…

Hands-on with Angry Birds Fight!, the match-3 birdie brawler

So Angry Birds Fight! is a match-3 puzzler with RPG elements, and I'm not massively impressed with what I've played so far of the soft-launched version currently available in Thailand. It's not a bad game at all, though the audio isn't nearly up to the franchise's usual high quality, it's just that it's in a genre that's kind of played out at this point, and a match-3 would have to do something really interesting to grab my attention these days. Maybe you'll like the look of it? Find out by clicking play on the video below. [App Store link]…

The top 10 Action RPGs that are yet to make it onto mobile

The top 10 Action RPGs that are yet to make it onto mobile

Action RPGs have found a reasonably good home on mobile. We have Dungeon Hunter, Kingsroad, and Bastion which all have deft touch controls, expansive worlds to explore, and, most importantly, loot. Lots of loot. However, mobile definitely needs more of the classic entries in the genre, so I've compiled a list of the 10 best action RPGs that could conceivably come to mobile. 1. Diablo II - Arguably the most important action RPG of all time, the Diablo franchise instilled in a lot of gamers an unhealthy addiction to loot  that still remains today. Diablo II is the highlight of the franchise so far. 2. Torchlight II - If…

Fahrenheit Remastered is out now on iOS and an Android version is in the works

There has been a fair bit of hype surrounding Fahrenheit this week due to it kind of just re-appearing out of nowhere. The folks responsible for porting Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Aspyr Media, have once again used their expertise to bring an aging game to the world of touch. The iOS version is out right now and an Android version is expected to arrive later this year.

Hands-on with Angry Birds Stella POP!, the new bubble popper from Rovio

There's no two ways about it, Angry Birds Stella POP! plays a heck of a lot like Bubble Witch Saga and Puzzle Bobble. But you know what? That's okay. Currently in soft-launch in Canada, Angry Birds Stella POP! might not be the most original game, but it's very well put together, looks lovely, and sounds even better. Here's what it looks like.

The Witcher Battle Arena Review

The Witcher Battle Arena Review

The App Store has gone a bit MOBA mad recently. First we had Fates Forever, then Vainglory. Now we have a new pretender to the throne: The Witcher Battle Arena, a streamlined interpretation of the classic MOBA format featuring characters from the popular RPG series. But is it worth your time? Pocket Gamer's Matt Thrower reckons so. Check out the video above to learn why.  …

The top 13 Western RPGs that are yet to make it onto mobile

The top 13 Western RPGs that are yet to make it onto mobile

Western RPGs come in a variety of different flavours but in general they're darker, bloodier, and more open-ended than their Japanese counterparts. Yesterday's list was much shorter and for one reason: a lot of the greatest JRPGs have already made it onto mobile. There are a lot of Western RPGs that are timeless and shouldn't remain as a forgotten chapter in gaming history. Here's a list of the top 13 that I think should be preserved on iOS and Android. 1. Gothic II - Most certainly Piranha Bytes' best game ever, Gothic II stands the test of time by having one of the grittiest and most responsive worlds in RPG history. The combat system was rhythm based and would serve…

The first episode of Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect is out now on iOS

Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect quite liberally draws its inspirations from the Telltale adventure games. There's cel-shading, an episodic release schedule, and a plot taken from a popular film or TV series. Still, I guess it was inevitable that a developer would try and mimic the excellent framework laid down by Telltale. The launch trailer below gives you a look at the game in motion and the link below will take you right to the App Store page. [App Store link]…

6 brilliantly minimalist iOS games you have to play

With all the immense power of our newest smartphones, it's easy to forget that minimalist games can look just as stunning as games which push your phones to the limit. There's a certain elegance in using bold colors and clean lines to convey an engaging concept. The following games are shining examples of the proper way to combine satisfying gameplay and minimalistic visuals in one very appealing package. 1. Boson X - We’re really kicking it off with a bang... or at least with a collision between microscopic subatomic particles. Boson X is a fabulous endless rotational runner sporting twitchy and fast-paced action. Boson X rewards quick reflexes as well as knowledge of the patte…

The top 8 Japanese RPGs that are yet to make it onto mobile

JRPGs make up a huge selection of my fondest gaming memories and I know I'm not the only one. From their diverse cast of characters, intense battle sections, and ridiculous plots, it's hard not to fall in love with the genre once you've played your first. A lot of JRPGs have already made the jump onto iOS and Android but I'll never be satisfied until they're all on there. Hence this list, which is essentially a wishlist of AppSpy's top 8 Japanese RPGs that are yet to make it onto mobile. 1. Tales of Symphonia - My favourite game of all time, Tales of Symphonia has got it all. An addictive and emotionally charged plot, the best characters of any JRPG ever, an action…

Hands-on with Endless Balance, Balance of the Shaolin's arcade mode

I rather liked Balance of the Shaolin when I played it back in July of 2014, and now its developer is back with a new game very much based on its gameplay mechanics, and have called it Endless Balance. Think of the two games as complimentary: Endless Balance is the arcade-oriented highscore chaser, where Balance of the Shaolin is the story mode. The game is fresh out on the App Store, you can grab it via the link below this video. [App Store link]…
