It only takes two fingers to pull off tricks like a pro in Touchgrind BMX 2, out now on iOS

Track and field gets a ballistic twist in Run Gun Sports, releasing on iOS this week

Sprinting a 50m dash may prove a tad challenging when you have guns for feet, in Run Gun Sports, the wacky sports game headed to the App Store on February 1st.

Recoil is your means of acceleration and balancing, forcing you to time your shots to modulate movement and rotations.

The launch trailer for Skater sees Andrew Reynolds talk you through an infamous Hollywood skate spot

Hands-on with Pumped BMX 2, the intense BMX simulation game with bold cartoon visuals

At first blush it's easy to assume that Yeah Us!'s latest is going to be an auto-runner, or an arcade-centric action game. It's bright and chunky and very colourful indeed. But after a few minutes with it you quickly realise that Pumped BMX 2 is about as hardcore as it gets for extreme sports games on mobile. As you'll see in the hands-on video, I've become a big fan of Pumped BMX 2 in the small amount of time I've had with it, but I'm still nowhere close to mastering its deep trick system, and fiendishly tough courses.…
