Syberia out on iOS

Thanks to Microids and Big Fish Interactive, the PC adventure classic Syberia is out on iOS... kind of. Syberia Part 1 is released for free. The game is split into three parts, and each adventure can be unlocked through in-app purchase. The Syberia series is well regarded in adventure circles for its beauty, and intriguing narrative. Even in such a form, the game is easy to recommend for adventure fans. Have a look at the original PC trailer for an example of the weird and wonderful world the game presents for the player.

HD overhaul for Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions

Having just lifted the lid on its new iOS Deux Ex game, Square Enix has also delivered good news for Final Fantasy Tactics fans. It seems the Japanese developer decided that the visuals for Final Tantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions could do with spruce up, and has just given the game an HD graphical overhaul. Simply download the latest update, and your low resolution troops will be transformed into super-sharp soldiers of fortune. The update should also improve the draw speed of the visual, too. In non-aesthetic news, Cloud support has also been added, allowing you to access save files regardless of which iOS device you happen to have in your palm. What's more, Squeenix has slashed the…


Deux Ex: The Fall announced for iOS

Deux Ex: The Fall announced for iOS

Prepare for imminent iOS augmentation: Square Enix's next Deus Ex game is coming not to home consoles, but to iPhone and iPad. Entitled Deux Ex: The Fall, the game will be a fully-fledged first-person RPG action title, just like its console counterpart Deux Ex: Human Revolution. The game's plot revolves around the supply of the drug which augmented humans (like protagonist Ben Saxon) require to survive. This time out, Square Enix's mobile division has taken on development duties, with involvement from N-Fusion (the team behind Air Mail) and Eidos-Montreal. Rather than being a neutered version of the console title, executive game director at Eidos Montreal Jean-François Dugas …


ExZeus 2 Review

Review HyperDevbox Japan By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 2 months ago
ExZeus 2 Review

If there's one thing you can't deny about ExZeus 2, it's the game's ambition. It sets out to create an action-packed mech shooting and fighting extravaganza by regularly switching-up its gameplay. One moment you're flying around the city blasting aircraft like a stage of Space Harrier, the next you're getting down and dirty at ground level in a 3D shoot-and-brawl section. You'll even find yourself in charge of a motorcycle attempting to avoid obstacles and take out enemies with your le…

Bloom Box Review

Review Nexx Studio By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 2 months ago
Bloom Box Review

When AppSpy first noted about the arrival of Bloom Box, we noted that the name was rather similar to the Wii game Boom Blox. The comparisons don't stop there however as both games are based around triggering chain reactions - something for which we gamers seem to have a soft spot. After all, it's undeniably satisfying to watch a successful chain of explosions (or in this case blossoming), especially when you've invested time and effort into the preparation. Bloom Box is about blooming…

Titan: Escape the Tower remade for iOS

News By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 2 months ago
Titan: Escape the Tower remade for iOS

There's a growing trend of remaking old game titles for the iOS platform, especially from the Commodore 64 and Amiga. Titan: Escape the Tower, is an update of the gameplay in the original Titan, released in 1989. From the trailer about to be linked, it looks like what would happen if the Arkanoid paddle could move through a series of labyrinths, trying to get the ball to safety (or at least using it to protect itself). The game releases this Thursday, and is looking to be an enjoyable and somewhat unique experience.…


Azkend 2 - The World Beneath free on App Store

Azkend 2 - The World Beneath free on App Store

Richly detailed match-three puzzle sequel Azkend 2 - The World Beneath is free to download for a limited time on the App Store. This act of temporary generosity can be attributed to the fact developer 10tons's next title Sparkle 2 is due out on Thursday, and the team is looking to stir up some noise for its upcoming release. Regardless of the reasons behind the game's price drop, fans of the match-three genre would be wise to give this unusual, narrative-driven puzzler a bash. The core puzzle elements are solid, and provide the spine for a quirky story campaign which sees you battling your way out of the centre of the Earth. You can download Azkend 2 - The World Beneath for free right now…


Deep Dungeons of Doom drops onto the App Store

Deep Dungeons of Doom drops onto the App Store

After going MIA for a few months following its initial release announcement, retro action adventure Deep Dungeons of Doom has finally appeared on the App Store. As you've probably already guessed from the trope-tastic title, this is a game designed to make lovers of fantasy adventure and pixel-art graphics roll over onto their backs and purr like kittens. Whether it tickles your furry underbelly or not will depend on your fondness for arcade style, one-on-one combat. As you descend through the game's steady stream of single screen dungeons, you'll come up against an increasingly tough line-up of fantastical opponents. Though the actual fighting mechanics consist simply of a block and an a…


Little Luca Review

Review Glowingpine Studios HB By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 2 months ago
Little Luca Review

Little Luca has received comparisons to Bumpy Road. This is largely because it's a game that put the player in control of the environment, rather than the protagonist. However, while Bumpy Road was an endless runner, Little Luca is a three star physics puzzler with a retro, pixel art aesthetic. Luca is a ball that is trying to replace all the stars in the sky. The goal of each level is to collect the three stars, while trying to reach the black hole that will transport you to the next…

Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD Review

It's been over two years since Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney was released on the App Store, and fans have been eagerly awaiting the next two chapters in this trilogy ever since. Well the good news is that And Justice For All and Trails and Tribulations have arrived as part of the Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD. The bad news is that while the graphics have been sharpened up, there are a few niggling issues that do bring the whole experience down a little. The games ar…

Star Wars®: Knights of the Old Republic™ iPad Review

Review Aspyr Media, Inc. By James Gilmour, 1 year, 2 months ago
Star Wars®: Knights of the Old Republic™ iPad Review

In some circles, BioWare's Knights of the Old Republic is considered the finest Star Wars game ever devised. Released back in 2003, it successfully captured not only the action-adventure sensibilities of the source movies, but also the epic scope of the Star Wars universe. Not content to let the classic slide further into the past, developer Aspyr has ported the full game onto the iPad. Bar a few control tweaks, this iOS release is a near perfect recreation of the original Knights of…

Free-to-play sequel Plants vs. Zombies 2 blooming in July

Long awaited tower defence sequel Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time is set to spring up on iOS devices on July 18th. What's more, it's going to be an App Store exclusive, and will be free to download. Much like the most recent Cut the Rope sequel, this new episode of lawn protecting action will propel the player between different periods of history. According to Eurogamer, you'll be shooing zombies off your Egyptian stonework one minute, and keeping your bay free of undead pirates the next. Things are a little different this time out. In addition to setting up towers and blasting zombies with seeds, you'll be able to attack the rotting marauders with your very own fingers by tapping th…

'Bridgy Jones' Engineers its way onto the App Store This Week

The bridge builder has always been one of the foundations of the physics puzzle genre (how ironic), but aside from a handful of flash games, low key iOS releases and World of Goo, it's never really had too much of a mainstream presence. This Thursday's release of Bridgy Jones won't likely change that, but it is looking to be a fantastic physics puzzler experience if the trailer is anything to go by. Take a look for yourselves. It looks to contain intuitive touch controls for building and deleting your structures, and I saw a little bit of Angry Birds-esque flinging in there too. Intriguing if nothing else. Look for our review sometime after the release.…

Leviathan: Warships' new Update Trailer

You might remember the original trailer for Paradox Interactive's Leviathan: Warships. If not, it featured smooth music and the sultry tones of a new entrant into the land of voiceover supremacy. Well now with their 'Jazzy Update', the voice is back, and just as amusing. The update itself just adds smooth jazz music as an option while you're engaging in naval combat, but the video is worth a watch just for the entertainment value. I about lost it when the boat puns started. Check out our review of the game here.…

Terraria Heading to iOS Soon

Back in 2011 on the PC, Terraria was released. At the time it looked like a 2D Minecraft with more of a focus on combat. Earlier this year it got ported over to consoles, and now finally it looks to be on its way to iOS. Now with the complexity of the game, the control scheme needs to be fine-tuned, otherwise this release will be dead in the water. Appparently the game has been redesigned with the touch-screen in mind. We'll know when the game is released. For now, have a look at the launch trailer for the console version.…
