There's little doubt that a game of this pedigree has enough high quality content to merit the $15.99 price tag, but nevertheless, its surprise appearance has probably left a lot of iDevice owners thinking they might have to forego the Square Enix RPG goodness this time around. Well, that won't be true for one lucky iFanzine reader! Will it be you? Rev up that Twitter account of yours to find out!
In the wake of the recent devastating earthquake/tsunami in Japan, our good friends at iPhone Gamer UK and AppsJP have teamed up to launch a very special initiative that gives you the opportunity to make a charitable donation to one or more aid organizations and get an awesome iOS game like Double Dragon or Spirits in return.
It might not be that walkabout in Middle-earth you've always dreamed of, but Megara Entertainment's iOS adaptation of the nonlinear gamebook series "Fabled Lands" is still one of the better things to come along since sliced bread. Don't believe us? Then enter the drawing for Megara's massive giveaway for a chance to find out that we're right for free!
Having previously launched an iPad only version of ROBOT 99 to widespread acclaim, über-talented Taiwanese illustrator/award-winning web designer/first time iOS game developer Fu is back with a brand spanking new universal binery. And while, when played on a smaller screen, the multi-touch powered party aspect of this title does not really compute; overall, it remains a visually stunning and thoroughly addictive little time waster.
"It’s got everything an iOS gamer could ask for...without a doubt, Bug Heroes is the year’s first must-have release," is how we excitedly summed up Foursaken Media's smash-hit sophomore effort, shortly before honoring this genre-defying gem with our highest accolade, a fantastic 5 stars out of 5! Now, courtesy of the kind folks at Foursaken, iFanzine have 10 copies of this great game to give away to our readers!
The interview goodness continues! This time we digitally chatted with Orian Livnat, one of the many talented minds behind Liv Games' genre-defying hit, Legendary Wars. Without a doubt, the story behind this game development studio has to be one of the most heartwarming - and dare we say, "legendary"? - to spring out of the economic recession.
There's one question on the mind of everyone eagerly awaiting the release of Mission Europa right now: "Arrrgh, how long is this approval process going to take!?" Never fear, because Ryan Mitchell - the one-man army responsible for BansheeSoft's breakout title - has stopped by to regale us with stories about the game's development. Programmer, scripter, 3D modeler...is there anything this guy can't do!? Find out inside!
Dedalord Games debuted on the App Store with a stylish and eerily atmospheric sokoban puzzler that cast players as the deranged inmate of a dingy, blood-stained loony bin. And it doesn't look this indie outfit is lightening up any for their imminent sophomore effort. Described as a "gory game sprinkled with black humor", Falling Fred wastes no time in hurling the titular character down an elevator shaft...
Liv Games' Legendary Wars earned a close to perfect score from iFanzine's discerning lead reviewer, Sean Koch, when he gave this "Real-Time Strategy/Castle Defense/RPG combo" an in-depth appraisal recently. And now thanks to the latest update - which, amongst other improvements, adds a host of control tweaks and a brand spanking new casual mode - this already awesome game just got a whole lot better!
BansheeSoft just swooped in with a preview build of Mission Europa, the studio's breakout First Person Shooter/Action RPG mashup. Combining the depth of an RPG with quick-on-your-feet strafing action to great effect, this is one well constructed indie title fans of either genre should follow closely as it nears release.
It can be said with some level of certainty that no game developer has envisioned what would happen if you combined nuclear weapons, disco, and NASCAR. That is, until now! iFanzine recently took Xpect Games' Race After 1977 for a test drive, and there's no doubt racing fans will eagerly anticipate its February release.
So how the heck do we top last week's Dead Space promo code contest that received a record-smashing number of retweets? Simple. We mark the iOS debut of an arguably even bigger game franchise with yet another great giveaway. Yup, you've guessed it, iFanzine are offering one lucky reader the chance to score a copy of Capcom Mobile's Devil May Cry 4 refrain!
