Huge Update Comes To Duet, Adding 48 New Stages

Posted by on July 29th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

We loved minimalist survival game, Duet, when it was first released last October so we’re pretty sure a forthcoming update for it will make it all the sweeter.

This Thursday you can enjoy the Epilogue Update, which promises to include 48 new epilogue stages, a new storyline, new game features, plus 4 brand new musical remixes.

The original release included 50 stages, so this update very nearly doubles the content already there, and it’s entirely free.

Duet is available now from the App Store priced at $2.99. The update is set to hit the store this Thursday.

Sharknado: The Video Game Available Now. Seriously.

We knew it was coming. And yet, despite the warnings it’s still taken up by surprise. Sharknado: The Video Game is here, and there isn’t anything anybody can do about it.

Lets go through a couple of key points, shall we?

The game’s hero, “Fin” (*rimshot*), runs through the streets of Manhattan cutting down flying sharks (technically they’re not flying, but whatever, they’re in the air) with a sword. He’ll also ride another shark into the very center of the sharknado in order to kill it – by which I mean the tornado with sharks in it – with a chainsaw.

Now my eye won’t stop twitching for some reason.

Anyway, Sharknado: The Video Game is available on the App Store right now, for $2.99. You’ve been warned.

Lots of New Modes Have Been Added to Canabalt

Posted by on July 23rd, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

A mere month after Canabalt was updated for the first time in over two years, it’s been updated again! That’s speedy!

The update brings with it eight new game modes, new leaderboards for each of those, two-player modes, plus 16 additional achievements.

The new modes change up the tried and tested formula with challenges such as alien ships coming at you, invisible buildings, and the rather risky Defenestration requiring you to throw yourself through windows. For the more cautious gamer, there’s also the addition of the Purity mode in which there aren’t any obstacles at all.

Don’t forget the fun of two player local multiplayer too!

The update for Canabalt is out now and the game is priced at $2.99.

Ravensburger Puzzle Puts its Pieces Together as a Universal Version

Posted by on July 3rd, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

In real life, figuring out jigsaw puzzles can be an extremely challenging task. Now imagine attempting to do that without the aid of being able to physically touch the pieces! Yet somehow, against all odds, Ravensburger Puzzle managed to pull of the digitization of matching in a very convincing manner.

Now that the game has established itself as a top 5 iPad app in over 20 markets, it was only a matter of time before they attempted to do the same for the iPhone. Today, Ravensburger Digital is pleased to inform us that the most recent version 1.3 update transforms the title into a Universal App. Best of luck to all of you phone-based matchers, because you’ve got your work cut out for you.

Ravensburger Puzzle is available on the App Store for $2.99.

Both Battle of the Bulge and Drive on Moscow: War in the Snow are on Sale This Weekend

Posted by on July 3rd, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

To celebrate Independence Day as well as the launch of Desert Fox: The Battle of El Alamein, Shenandoah Studio‘s Battle of the Bulge and Drive on Moscow: War in the Snow are now on sale for the next week.

On sale initially at $2.99, in an interesting twist, the price will steadily increase as the week goes by. An extra $1 will be added to the price each day from July 5 – meaning you should get in quick for the maximum discount of 70% off, only for today and tomorrow.

We really enjoyed both historical strategy games, so you know what to do. The games are on sale until July 10 but I’d suggest deciding quickly for maximum benefit.

A massive update for innovative puzzle game, Eliss Infinity, has just been released.

The game now offers Game Center achievements, an in-game counterpart to such achievements called Gems, immediate visual feedback to demonstrate when planets should be bigger or smaller, as well as visualization of recent supernovas.

Elsewhere, the difficulty curve has been smoothed out meaning things should start out a little easier for Eliss Infinity novices, plus the tutorial has been touched up and improved upon so things make more sense.

Already garnering 4.5 stars from us, Eliss Infinity just got even better. It’s out now and it’s priced at $2.99.

It only seemed like a matter of time before this would happen. First Mario, then Sonic, and now Disney XD all have their own kart racing games. The rather obviously named Disney XD Grand Prix will place players behind the wheel with some of their favorite characters like Phineas, Lord Hater, Dipper, and even Steve the Llama.

Featuring tracks, power-ups and even vehicles themselves, all ripped directly from the Disney universe, this is the perfect way for everyone’s inner child to feel the need for speed.

For a limited time, Disney XD Grand Prix will be available for only $0.99 – a full 60% off of its base price! Be sure to move quick, because before you know it, the game will be return to its full price of $2.99.
