First Look: SHADOWGUN & New Video Footage!

Wow. Just... wow. Shadowgun, Madfinger Games' eagerly awaited follow-up to the critically lauded Samurai II: Vengeance, looks like all kinds of awesome. Madfinger are promising this Unity Engine-powered third-person shooter will usher in "a new visual standard for handheld gaming," and having just watched a brief video clip of the upcoming title in action, I'm inclined to believe them....

Diversion Review

No interface? No problem! After learning how limited the player's input options are in the Edis Brothers' "Diversion," I went in determined to loathe it. Instead, after a few hours leaping, sliding, shimmying, gliding and climbing through its levels, I came out on the other side a firm believer. Behold the running game to end all running games!...

Gears Review

Rather surprisingly, Crescent Moon's latest release, Gears, sees the lauded game studio ditch the epic scale, vast fantasy worlds and swords ‘n’ sorcery of Aralon and Rimelands, and turn out a casual rolling-ball platformer instead. Unsurprisingly, it rocks......

City of Secrets Review

This console quality offering from Aidem Media is so easy to jump into, yet so satisfyingly varied and content-packed, that it easily straddles the border between casual and hardcore appeal. It feels sinfully underpriced on the iPhone and iPod Touch, but don't worry; we won't tell anyone should you happen to indulge....

iGADGET In-Depth Review

Many classic games from the 1990s deserve reincarnation and a new chance to shine on the iOS, but sadly, GADGET might not be one of them. While it's easy to see how this interactive movie-of-sorts marked a critical turning point in videogame history when first released in 1993, its content suffers from critical design flaws laid all too bare by the test of time....

Paleolithics Promo Code Giveaway!

Up for grabs in this week's giveaway are five codes for Instant Games' innovative sidescrolling adventure Paleolithics. This fun and addictive game, which we recently awarded a well-deserved 4.5/5 stars, puts you in concurrent control of a family of cutesy cave people as they traverse a vibrant Jurrasic world, hunting and being hunted by an array of ferocious creatures, gathering materials and crafting rudimentary tools and weaponry....

Paleolithics Review

Hunting and gathering has never been this much fun! You'd never know it from its ultra-streamlined premise and unembellished Stone Age aesthetic, but "Paleolithics" is easily one of the most compelling ninety-nine cent offerings on the App Store right now. It's got that rare mix of family friendliness (in a manner of speaking), simple controls, and most importantly, game design that hits the ball right out of the park....

Super Ball Escape Review

With a gritty, tech-noir-ish tone and aesthetic, fully-fledged storyline told via sumptuous hand-drawn cutscenes and plenty of pulse-pounding stealth-based action, Playlithium's thrilling new game, Super Ball Escape, turns the rolling-ball genre's tendency towards the cute and colorful on its head. Think Metal Gear meets Super Monkey Ball......

Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden In-Depth Review

Yes, if you're a longtime veteran of 3D Action RPGs you'll slip up and call Ayden's horse "Epona" a few times, but once you start taking in the excellently crafted vistas of Hy-err, Lasgalen, you won't find much to complain about. Sadly the free trial is a poor representation of the overall product; it shows off the battle system and story well enough, but the major draw here are the intricate dungeon puzzles that lie behind the full purchase price....

Hot Damn: Win Devil May Cry 4 refrain!

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!...

Fox Tales: Escape from Dr. Goober Review

We had the opportunity to give a near-final pre-release copy of Won-O-Soft's Fox Tales a whirl a couple of weeks back, and really enjoyed the title's tilt based take on the old-school 2D platform game formula. For those of you that might have missed our hands-on preview, Fox Tales puts you in the pelt of wily hero Jack Fox......
