Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: JUST BREATHE :: Read Review »

Quantum Sheep has announced that the latest entry in the Air Supply franchise, Air Supply SOS, will be making its way onto iOS soon.

Within the game, The Time Travel Clothing Company is stealing wool from kidnapped Quantum Sheep, resulting in the Mothersheep sending out an SOS ("Save Our Sheep," of course) to all heroes. It'll be your job to be that hero - using your jetpack to dodge dangers and put rescued sheep into your rocket, all the while keeping an eye on your dwindling air supply.

Inspired by Jetpac on the ZX Spectrum, the game features twenty characters to unlock, 100 levels to play, over forty different alien enemies, and over 11 million customization combinations for the look and feel of the game.

No pricing or release date has been announced yet for Air Supply SOS, but the game will have no in-app purchases or adverts and has been confirmed to work on iPhone 4 and up, original iPad and up, and on 5th generation iPod Touch.

Ex-Angry Birds Developers Release Monsu Teaser Trailer

Posted by Jennifer Allen on July 23rd, 2014

Finnish developer Boomlagoon has released a teaser trailer of their forthcoming side-scrolling action platformer, Monsu.

Looking like a pretty cute auto-runner, Monsu has another trick up its sleeve, courtesy of the many cards that you can collect as you play.

Coming from some of the minds behind Angry Birds, there will be dozens of customizable characters to get to know, with the hope that Monsu is more character-driven than most running platformers.

A series of online tournaments besides the rich single-player world should ensure there's plenty of fun to be had when Monsu arrives on the App Store later this summer.

Check out the trailer below to see just what to expect very soon!
