First episode of stealth hacker Republique is now available free on iPhone and iPad

The first episode of Camouflaj’s episodic stealth game Republique is currently available for free on the App Store. Set in a dystopian future, Republique has you helping a girl named Hope as she flees for her life through an oppressive city state. Acting remotely, you view the action through security cameras, hacking various electronics in the world to clear a path, and letting Hope know when its safe to run. Hacking games seems quite de rigueur at the moment, exemplified by apps like Watch_Dogs Companion: ctOS Mobile. Featuring tons of computer tinkering fun, this tie in to Watch_Dogs gives you control of the city's security system, letting you chase down console an…

Free vertical shooter Final Flight of the Perseus gets new Expert Mode

Final Flight of the Perseus is a vertical shmup developed by Third Party Ninjas. Despite already being free, the team has clearly decided that it wasn't offering enough value, and has just added a new Expert Mode. The wave-based shump offers short bursts of icreasingly challenging sci-fi combat. Every enemy killed earns you in-game cash, which you can then spend on upgrades to power up your cannons, or to replenish your shields. As any good star pilot will tell you, dropping to zero shields in Final Flight of the Perseus is dangerous. This is where the new Expert Mode comes in, encouraging you to flight in this prone state to earn double cash rewards. Resist the urge to power up yo…

Fantastically frantic dodge’em-up Tilt to Live 2: Redonkulous is currently free on the App Store

We adore developer One Man Left’s tilt based dodge’em-up Tilt to Live 2: Redonkulous. This makes us very happy to report that the game is currently free on the App Store. Tilt to Live 2: Redonkulous is to the twin-stick shooter genre what dodgems are to bumper cars. But, while shifting the action from hitting everything in sight to avoiding it may ruin the fairground attraction, in the palm of your hand it becomes something very special indeed. The responsive tilt based gameplay has you manipulating your device to weave through all manner of dangers in tight arenas. Constantly spawning enemies keep you under pressure as the screen quickly begins to fill with death. Coll…

Review Chaotic Box By Alex Beech, 3 years, 8 months ago
dEXTRIS Review

Dextris is twitch gaming distilled down to its purest form. Controlling two neon coloured blocks in unison, your simple task is to dodge left and right as you rocket endlessly upwards through its vertically-scrolling course. By default, the pink and blue squares you command sit happily in the middle of the screen. Holding the right side of the screen causes both blocks to shoot rapidly to the right and grind their way up the wall. Hold the left side, and you'll get the opposite result…

While the real games are over, Dudeski's arcade styling can still be enjoyed - and for free, no less. Making your way to the bottom of the game’s pixilated Lord Shred mountain is not just a simple matter of weaving through the course’s slalom gates. Each of the mountain’s four stages are filled with different obstacles, from fallen tree’s to Yetis, all of which will end your run is not avoided. It is only by skillfully dodging all of these hazards that you'll make it to the finish line. If that wasn’t enough, there is also an avalanche chasing yo…
