+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
FFFFF2P makes an amusing statement, but the game itself isn't a whole lot of fun to play thanks to repetition and control issues.

    Demolition Lander: Universe Review

    iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
    Demolition Lander's combination of space travel and destruction is a great idea, but players may find the classic Lunar Lander formula doesn't work flawlessly with side-scrolling action.

    Grab Your Spandex! LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Universe in Peril is Here

    Posted by on June 20th, 2014
    + Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

    Oh no! Loki and his evil buddies are constructing a super-weapon. Who can stop them? The LEGO® Marvel™ Super Heroes! After their success with consoles and PC last year, Marvel and Lego have teamed up to bring LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Universe in Peril to mobile devices. Play as Spider-Man, Captain America, the Hulk, and 88 other characters. Seek out the Cosmic Bricks in the 45 missions that span the Marvel Universe.

    The game has two control settings: “Console” and “Touch Screen,” which will make it easier for players to play the way they prefer. As the app requires no internet access players can feel free to play where and when they like. Just watch out when downloading the game. It takes up 2.2gb of space when downloaded with wifi.

    LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Universe in Peril is available on the App Store for $4.99.

    One of the more surprising iOS surprises to come out of E3 last week was the seemingly out of nowhere online action RPG Soul Guardians: Age of Midgard.

    I’ve seen my fair share of action RPGs on the App Store before, but Soul Guardians displays a cool mix of colorful style and ridiculously over-the-top attack animations that really stand out. You’ll be able to collect monster cards, which can then be used as upgradeable special attacks. Seriously, there’s a ton of action to shove in your face, and you’ll be able to share it all with your friends or random strangers through online co-op.

    Soul Guardians: Age of Midgard should be coming to the App Store within the next couple of weeks for free.

    + Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
    Being both a licensed tie-in and free-to-play makes it seem like Tales of Honor already has two strikes against it. However, the experience has potential - it just falters due to repetitive, unchanging gameplay.

    Rocketcat Games joined our Twitch channel late last week to stream Wayward Souls with us. For the first time, see the first boss of the game defeated, and see large chunks of the second area of the game, the Tower, with a couple of the game’s characters. The game releases on April 24.

    WaywardSoulsTower

    We’ve shared YouTube videos of some of the highlights, along with a recap of the entire stream, containing information on the process of the game’s development and what players can expect when it releases.

    See the first area of the game defeated with Renee the Rogue:
