Coincidentally being released soon after the Miami Heat won the NBA Playoffs, Asphalt 7: Heat is the latest addition to the Asphalt series. The previous instalment, Adrenaline, is a pretty hard act to follow, and with big names like Real Racing two on the rise, is this new release enough to make it in todays market?
The game involves fast-paced gameplay coupled with brilliant graphics that make this one hell of a ride. Whilst the core gameplay is much the same as it’s predecessor, Asphalt 7 has all the makings to be the top racing game for iOS. Let’s find out more after the jump. (more…)
We all stumble upon YouTube videos different ways. Sometimes it’s a coworker at the office who passes around a clip, or maybe a friend says, “You’ve GOT to see this.” I don’t remember how I found out about the Epic Meal Time crew, but I did, and I’ve been a fan ever since.
Now they have an app for the iPad and iPhone — the appropriately named Epic Meal Time — and it’s a doozy. Will their success on YouTube parlay into more Internet money made in the App Store? Put on your sunglasses and your Expos hat, because we’re going to find out. (more…)
Ever felt like sitting down in front of your iPhone and eradicating human life using a rapidly evolving pathogen that can instigate global anarchy? It’s a need you don’t necessarily have until you sit down with this strangely addictive app.
Plague Inc. is a real-time strategic simulation of a disease progressively infecting and killing every sentient being on the planet. Sounds just like anybody’s cup of tea, I know. There’s something about having total control over a somewhat terrifyingly realistic situation where your actions can decide whether billions will live or die. If any of this is relatable, either consult your local psychiatrist, or read on. (more…)
Marvel’s The Amazing Spider-Man hit theaters in July, becoming the second movie this summer from the House of Ideas (the first being The Avengers). Whenever Spider-Man gets a flick, a game is guaranteed. In this case it’s the film’s eponymous release from Gameloft.
Peter Parker’s alter ego has been featured in video games since the 1970s. In the digital world, he’s probably faced his entire rogues gallery. He’s also been playable in every beat-‘em-up, fighting, role-playing and side-scrolling fashion imaginable. But The Amazing Spider-Man is where fans get the Spidey who does all of those ⎯ and has been missing from other adaptations. Let’s find out more after the jump. (more…)
Almost a year and a half ago, in February of 2011, Andreas Illiger released what would become one of the most popular iPhone games on the app store: Tiny Wings. It seems like only yesterday that I was spending entire lunch breaks and bus rides with our locomotion-deficient avian friend, but after 18 months, I’m pleased to report that Tiny Wings 2.0 has finally arrived.
If you’re not already aware of Tiny Wings, the premise is that you play a relatively plump little bird who is ill-equipped to generate the lift necessary to fly on his own (read: tiny wings). However, his world is populated by a series of frictionless hills, and with your help he can gain speed and take to the skies using pure inertia.
Let’s dig into 2.0 and see what’s new, shall we? (more…)
Hunters 2 is a turn-based strategy game of sci-fi shoot outs in various locals, such as space stations, moon bases and alien worlds. Developed by Rodeo Games, it puts you in control of a squad of hunters, hiring out your skills, one contract at a time.
As the game progresses, each of your hunters gain experience to learn more skills, find loot to better equip themselves and earn the cash with which to purchase gear and new recruits. A menu of new missions is offered up each day, reflecting the mercenary’s changing way of life. Embrace your inner mercenary after the break. (more…)
We’re told that first impression always count, but if that were true I would never have played the beautiful OLO. When it was first featured as the App Store’s “Game of the Week,” I met the app with initial skepticism; the premise seemed too simplistic to be a long-lasting, entertaining game. But after being given the chance to review the app, my mind was swiftly changed. Let me tell you why. (more…)
While I myself am guilty of never having seen The Naked Gun, it seems as if the consensus believe that the movie is amazing. Now, DNA Interactive has reincarnated the movie into a new game for iOS, named The Naked Gun: I.C.U.P., featuring the one and only Lieutenant Drebin. And trust me — you will not be disappointed. Learn more after the break. (more…)

The App Store is chock-full of driving and flying games of every kind. There are games in which you pilot a spaceship, or a Lamborghini, or an F-22 Raptor, and through every imaginable kind of terrain and situation. Despite all these different games, Jet Car Stunts manages to take the basic idea of a driving game and add an impressive new element that makes it radically unique.
As you could probably tell by the title, the added element is that your car has a powerful jet engine mounted on the back. But instead of just using the jet engine as an over complicated speed boost, it also functions to propel you forward when you’re airborne. And flying through the air at remarkable speeds is quite a big part of Jet Car Stunts. (more…)
