After a successful Kickstarter Pro Pinball: Timeshock!, an upcoming title from Barnstorm Games, will be arriving on the App Store later this week. That in itself is awesome.
Ahead of that, we are proud to announce that we have a new trailer for the game — exclusively on 148apps.com!
The game is based on the popular 90s game series Pro Pinball.
Barnstorm Development Chief Adrian Barritt mentions the nostalgia that made the redevelopment possible. “It’ll be great to have Timeshock! back in the hands of players again; the Kickstarter campaign has demonstrated that there is so much nostalgia for this title both from us and fans of the original Pro Pinball series of games,” he says. “We are bringing the definitive pinball simulation to a new generation of platforms and players, starting today with iOS. The Retina screens and tactile nature of the iPhone and iPad are such a perfect fit, the game has never been realized in such stunning clarity before.”
As noted, the game is due out this week. It will be available in two tiers, Standard ($2.99) and Deluxe ($6.99) on the App Store.
Sam Barlow, writer and designer of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, has released a teaser trailer for his new independent game, Her Story. The game uses live action footage to tell a tale of mystery surrounding the disappearance of a woman’s husband in 1994. Players will have access to archived video footage from a police database that shows interviews with the woman. As she tells her tale you will be tasked with researching her story using the database.
“If you can Google, you can play Her Story. The mechanic of searching for clips in the database is so simple that anyone can pick up and play. But it’s a mechanic that quickly reveals its richness and complexity. At times it can feel like you’re engaged in a genuine dialogue with this woman and her story. It’s a unique way to interact with a narrative, a sculptural way of viewing a story — and something that can only be done interactively,” Sam Barlow said in a press release.
Gameloft has just unveiled Dungeon Hunter 5, a new addition to their mobile hack ‘n’ slash franchise. Playing as a ‘common-guy’ bounty hunter following on from the events of Dungeon Hunter 4, the game is set to feature improved graphics, new animations ‘built from the ground up’, and all new weapons and effects.
Players will also be the owners of their own dungeon ‘hideouts’ in the new multiplayer mode, where they’ll aim to defend their loot whilst stealing from others. Each hideout is designed by the player, with the ultimate goal of an attacker being to defeat the owner of the hideout at the end and claim some of their loot as their own. This loot can then be used in the new weapon fusing system, which allows players to combine and level-up their weaponry.
Dungeon Hunter 5 is set to slash its way onto the App Store later this year. Players can pre-register for the game now, which gives them the opportunity to work toward exclusive launch day items including concept art and a minion to help protect their loot.
Set in a city garden littered with junk and unloved cast-offs, each chapter of super-powered playtime begins in the Playworld treehouse, a crafting hub in which the game’s themes are realized. Players must defeat playful enemies on the ground in intense moment-to-moment action, jumping back to the real world to craft new tools and gadgets to level up their powers. Would-be heroes must then take to the skies to overcome their greatest challenge yet. Armed only with their imagination, the player must skip between two worlds to save them both in a Hollywood blockbuster-styled game of their own creation.
Playworld Superheroes has been teased before, but now we get to see a fresh trailer with a bit of gameplay while we wait for its release – which should be fairly soon.
You are a special forces team tasked with saving London from the clutches of a mad rich man who has wired it to explode if his insane demands are not met. And by “saving London” we of course mean “shooting at bad guys a lot.”
Tempo is set for release in January 2015. Until then you can enjoy the newly released and action-packed trailer.
Gameloft has released a new trailer for the upcoming Brothers in Arms 3.
The game will feature squad-based combat where you can use the abilities of your chosen brother, and there are 12 to choose from so figuring out who to bring on each mission can provide you with a strategic advantage. You’ll be able to use abilities such as an airstrike to mortar fire, and each brothers’ stats can be upgraded.
Brothers in Arms 3 has no official release date yet, but you can watch the trailer while you wait.
Telltale Games has announced the season premiere episode of Tales from the Borderlands, ‘Zer0 Sum,’ will be coming to iOS before the end of this year.
Revisit Pandora after the events of Borderlands 2 with this five-part episodic adventure game series. You’ll get to play as Rhys, a Hyperion ‘suit’ with dreams of being the next Handsome Jack, and Fiona, a Pandoran con artist looking to score her biggest swindle ever.
To help us all with the wait, the developer has released a new trailer. The trailer further explains the gameplay mechanics, as well as the new risk system the developer hopes will set this title apart from other collectible card games.
The trailer is below and the game is scheduled to drop early in 2015.
The modern day ghost story of Haunting Melissa was a dark and spooky ride. Now Neal Edelstein, producer of The Ring, The Ring Two and Mulholland Drive, is making a sequel to this popular app, Dark Hearts.
Dark Hearts is a tale about the disappearance of a teenage girl and the horror that comes along with trying to find out what happened to her. As with Haunting Melissa the game will come in chapters delivered at random intervals to keep you on your toes. The game will be released in late November, but to get you ready we have the new trailer for Dark Hearts.
A new trailer has arrived for One Man Left‘s Tilt to Live: Gauntlet’s Revenge, an obstacle course-based entry in the Tilt to Live franchise.
Using the tilt controls familiar to the series, the game will feature three challenging gauntlets full of traps and enemies for players to fall afoul of, with three difficulty modes allowing them to pick the length of their health bar. And if players manage to make their way through the gauntlets, the Dot King awaits.
Tilt to Live: Gauntlet’s Revenge is set to release on iOS later this month.
Possibly teasing toward one of the three stories about “hearts united by the wonderful, but unmerciful ocean” that the game is set to include, the trailer features a man talking about what may have happened to “her” and his lifelong search.
The Sailor’s Dream is set to voyage onto the App Store sometime later this year.
Miniclip has released two new trailers for two of their up coming games: On The Run and Berry Rush.
On the Run is racing game where you must reach checkpoints before the time runs out. It works similarly to an arcade-style game, with power-ups to increase your speed and penalties for bumping into other cars. Players will be able to compete with their Facebook friends on leaderboards or compete globally.
Berry Rush is an endless runner set in the Strawberry Shortcake universe. Players try to collect fruit, which can then be used in a cake-decorating mini-game. The Cakes can be sold for coins that can be used to unlock more characters, puppy companions, and other boosts.
Both On the Run and Berry Rush will be coming to the App Store soon.
Alto’s Adventure, the new snowboarding endless runner from Snowman Games, has just had a gorgeous trailer released for it. The game features highly stylized art with dynamic weather and lighting effects to give the player a visually stunning experience. When it comes out, Alto’s Adventure will be a paid, premium app, with no ads or in-app purchases
Alto’s Adventure is coming soon to the iPhone and iPad.
Based in the Witcher universe, CD PROJEKT RED‘s The Witcher Battle Arena is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA). In an effort to keep things fair and balanced, the developer has said that the game will have no pay to win elements.
Benjamin Lee, Producer for Mobile Games, CD PROJEKT RED sounds very excited about the project: “We are extremely passionate about games, whether they be for PC, console or mobile devices. The Witcher Battle Arena is our take on the MOBA genre and we are really excited at the prospect of sharing it with the gaming community! We highly value fans of The Witcher, and their opinions have always been paramount in helping us develop a great gaming experience–The Witcher Battle Arena is no exception!”
The Witcher Battle Arena is pretty exciting news for fans of the series, but if you have never played a Witcher game, this app still looks like it will be a quality MOBA. Check out the new trailer below.
Game Insight has released the official X-Mercs: Invasion website. The site will be releasing information about the upcoming game as it becomes available, and gives you a chance to learn about the storyline, units, and tactics.
A well informed Merc will have a leg up on the competition. X-Mercs: Invasion will be a turn-based strategy game that puts you at the head of your own military corporation fighting an invading alien force – much like XCOM.
X-Mercs: Invasion will be available for iPad and iPhone devices later this year.
Loqheart has unveiled a preview trailer for their upcoming free-to-play wizard academy management game (i.e. Hogwarts simulator), Wizards of Prestige.

No release date has been announced for Wizards of Prestige as of yet, but you can sign up for the browser pre-alpha now.
We hope you’re all ready for a firefight, because the Overkill franchise is coming back for a third dose of action this summer. Craneball Studios‘ new teaser trailer for the upcoming Overkill 3 features more of the futuristic shooting that fans have come to expect from the series, only this time in third-person.
Though details are scant as of yet, you can definitely spot appearances from drones, gun emplacements, and the remnants of toppling skyscrapers in the footage. So essentially it looks like business as usual, right?
Start stockpiling your ammo now, because this is the kind of conflict that players won’t want to miss.

Tilt to Live 2: Redonkulous has released an official trailer to accompany the game; additionally, it has announced an upcoming update. According to its information:
The new Brimstone Pinball mode throws players into a malevolent pinball machine, where every bumper is armed to the teeth and out to destroy you. Your only weapon is the wild, ricocheting brimstone, which you’ll have to tame if you want to survive.
This new one-player gametype will launch with 15 of its own achievements and a fresh leaderboard to climb. It’s a 99¢ DLC coming to the App Store this month.
We looked at the app late last year. Tilt to Live 2: Redonkulous is available for $2.99 on the App Store.
Ever wondered what a video game trailer might be like played completely against type? The folks at Paradox apparently have, and you can see the fruit of their efforts right here in their latest trailer for upcoming strategic action game, Leviathan Warships.
You can pre-order the game for Mac and PC for $10 right now, and get the DLC included for free. Leviathan Warships will otherwise also release for iOS and Android on April 30.

In case you missed it last night, Angry Birds Star Wars (iPhone $0.99), (iPad $2.99) was released at midnight. Carter gave it 4 stars and noted “Angry Birds Star Wars may not come from a galaxy far, far away, but it does add some interesting new variations on the famous gameplay, along with plenty of Star Wars references.”
Rovio has also released this killer cinematic trailer for the game.
Developer Moon Active has official announced the upcoming release of their first title, Bitter Sam, a new physics-based action puzzle game. Born loser Sam has lived a rough life and has every reason to be bitter. Especially since he’s now been kidnapped by a mad scientist and dropped down a bottomless pit hanging from a rope in search of crystals.
When released, the game will include 100 levels making up 5 different worlds of tilt controlled descents with tons of obstacles, power-ups, and unique graphics. As players tilt their device, they will guide Sam on his rope left and right to avoid dangers and collect crystals through each level.
Bitter Sam will take the plunge on March 15th when the game launches in the App Store. No word yet on how much this titles will cost, though. Still, players won’t have long to wait to find out and they can be helping the embittered little hero soon.
It’s a little bit dark, it’s a little bit sexy, it’s the first teaser trailer for the upcoming MMORPG, Dark Legends. This MMMORPG (mobile massively multiplayer online role playing game – you heard it here first, folks –Ed.) centers on secret factions of vampires, werewolves, demons, and the humans trying to exterminate these undead threats. The player plays a recently awakened vampire under the direction of the vampire that turned them in a fight for survival against the human mobs that have recently been alerted to the existence of the undead.
The trailer doesn’t reveal much in the way of gameplay, but it does set a certain tone for the upcoming game. Dark Legends is being developed by Spacetime Studios, who also developed the critically acclaimed MMOs Star Legends and Pocket Legends. Dark Legends is set for release sometime in the first quarter of this year for iOS, Android, and Chrome. Take a look at the teaser trailer below to get an idea of what’s in store.
Wow, just when you thought Blade couldn’t be any craftier, its currently incarcerated star is making an appearance on your iOS platform of choice. Lapland Studio is proud to announce that their upcoming partnership with action star Wesley Snipes is finally coming to fruition, in the form of the upcoming 3D adventure game Julius Styles: The International.
Check out the title’s debut sizzle reel below:
Supposedly Snipes, who the game’s main character just so happens to bear a striking resemblance to, has been crucial in the game’s development process. He even went as far as to provide the developer with actual character design direction and even key concept material.
How this can all be done from the comfort of a jail cell is beyond me, but this exciting new chapter in the star’s career will start on August 11th and promises to span several episodic volumes. It certainly has my interest, but really, with such scintillating dialog as “I live in the shadows,” and “Shadows are dark places,” I don’t know how anyone couldn’t be instantly hooked.
Gameloft has finally released a gameplay trailer for their highly anticipated real time strategy title, Starfront: Collision. They also announced that the title will be available for purchase via the App Store on February 10th. This is great news because Gameloft has been pretty hush-hush with the title since its initial announcement. I was beginning to worry that we might not see the title for months. Thankfully that isn’t the case, and all of the die hard strategy fans can now sleep better at night knowing this title will soon be theirs to command.
Welcome to planet Sinistral, where rare Xenodium crystals are coveted by a human mining conglomerate called the Consortium. However, they are not the only ones after the rare mineral. The Myriad, an indigenous race of aliens, is addicted to Xenodium and will do everything they can to prevent the Consortium from plundering their resources. To add to the chaos, a sentient robot race called the Wardens is trying to turn the war in their favor. Whose side will you choose?
This Starcraft “inspired” app features three factions struggling to obtain a rare resource on the planet Sinistral. The Consortium (aka humans) are mining Sinistral for precious Xenodium crystals, but the native Myriads (aka aliens) aren’t keen on giving them up. To add to the chaos there is another race known as the Wardens (aka psychotic robots) who are bent on destroying everyone. The game will have multiplayer in the form of “massive” 4-player local and online battles. The trailer shows off some very nice graphics, and the framerate seems smooth even during intense action scenes. The trailer also showcases a short segment of actual hands-on gameplay, and from what I can tell, the interface looks fairly intuitive. Hopefully, Gameloft has nailed the interface because a lot of fans have been waiting for a definitive iOS real time strategy game.
It is sad that the game only supports 3rd and 4th generation devices, but I’m sure it was hard enough for the development team to squeeze out an acceptable level of performance during heavy combat on current devices. With only three more days until the official release, we won’t have to wait long to find out if Starfront: Collision lives up to all the hype.
It’s not surprising that Gamevil, makers of the Zenonia and Hybrid: Eternal Whisper series, would have another action RPG up their sleeve. What is eye-catching, however, is the art style of their new title, Vanquish: The Oath of Brothers. Billed as an “Artisitc Action RPG”, Vanquish features striking ink and wash painting graphics.
An initial teaser trailer of the game was released, and the presentation is indeed very stylish. Not much of the game itself can be seen, except for a brief glimpse of side-scrolling fighting on horseback. You can view the trailer below…
Along with the new trailer, Gamevil has put out a call for 25 beta testers. Anyone interested can apply on the Gamevil website. All submissions must be received before midnight January 17th.
Gamevil has just released a new teaser for their upcoming game HYBRID: Eternal Whisper, which is set to release in the US App Store this Fall. The product of the same team behind the amazing RPG Zenonia, HYBRID has a lot of promise. Gamevil’s calling HYBRID a “a new breed of stylish action adventure,” and it looks like it’ll focused more on combat and special moves than on a storyline. There will be 150 levels, a complex storyline, and plenty of challenge. If Zenonia’s success and level of polish is anything to go by, HYBIRD should delight the hardcore gaming crowd.
Gamevil doesn’t have a huge App Store presence on this side of the ocean yet (their only games with English localizations are Zenonia and Baseball Superstars) but from what I understand, they’ve got a solid presence in Korea. Like their other two US releases, HYBRID will be a port from a popular Korean title.
The Rolando 2 website continues to reveal more information about the game as we get closer and closer to the launch of the title (Considering the game hasn’t been released yet or given an official release date, it’s safe to assume that each day that passes is at least one day closer to the launch of the game.) Since we last had a chance to take a look at ngmoco’s Rolando 2 website, five of the locked Rolando’s down bottom have been revealed and as of today a teaser trailer for the game has gone live (You can watch the trailer below!)

Robo-fighter Ironkill has been out on iOS and Android for a while now, but the roster’s been missing a certain feminine touch.
