Spiderweb Software No Longer Developing for iOS

Spiderweb Software, the studio behind the RPGs Avernum, Avadon, and others, will seemingly no longer be developing for iOS. Its latest RPG, Avernum 2: Crystal Souls, was pulled from the App Store shortly after its release because iOS 8.3 busted up the game pretty badly.The studio’s had other woes with the platform as well, including soaring advertising costs and increased competition. Read studio founder Jeff Vogel’s blog for more info.

Baldur’s Gate II iPad Review

Like I alluded to in my preview of the game, playing Baldur’s Gate II was one of the defining moments for me as a gamer. It holds a special place in my gaming heart, and you’d be hard pressed to find an “all-time best of” list that doesn’t include this amazing game. Unfortunately, times they have a changed. RPGs have evolved and the way we play games has changed, so a straight port of this computer classic just doesn’t work for the iPad. (more…)

Lonnie Plays WWE 2K

Wrestling is one of America’s favorite pastimes, so it only makes sense that a (very good) iOS version of the sport has hit the App Store. Thankfully for all of us, Lonnie has a Let’s Play video of it. It’s called WWE 2K, and it’s quite fun by all accounts. Check it out above.

Build-a-Lot 4: Power Source is Currently Free

If you’re into building sims, today’s your lucky day. That’s because both the iPhone and iPad versions of G5’s Build-a-Lot 4: Power Source are totally free to download. We enjoyed the original game quite a bit when it launched several years ago. And apparently the games have maintained their quality. So go ahead and give it a download.

Chainsaw Warrior: Lords of the Night Review – Brutally Wonderful

If you like your card games to beat the crap out of you, then we have the game for you. This installment of Chainsaw Warrior pits you against apocalyptical beasties and asks you to clear them out. 148Apps enjoyed the game, saying in their 4.5 out of 5 star review:

The ever-present Darkness is at it again, and it’s up to the gruff but loveably tenacious Chainsaw Warrior to stop the apocalypse for a second time. What’s different in Lords of the Night is that… well, actually, there’s a lot that’s different. You still get to agonize over there being too many cards in each deck and running out of time, though.

Halo: Spartan Strike Review – Near Perfection

Pocket Gamer has reviewed Halo: Spartan Strike on iOS and found it to be a high caliber game worthy of a spot on just about anyone’s device. According to their 9 out of 10 review:

Halo: Spartan Strike is a slick twin-stick shooter that manages to feel like Halo in the palm of your hand. If you like your action deep-spacey, then it’s well worth a look.

Party Hard Gets a New Trailer

A few weeks ago we posted a trailer for Party Hard, a murder simulator about a dude who’s fed up with the volume of his neighbor’s music and decides to go on a kill-crazy rampage. A new trailer that burrows further into the premise has hit the webs. Enjoy it if you’re into that sort of thing.

Candy Crush Games Updated with New Levels

If any fans of Candy Crush Saga and Candy Crush Soda out there have run out of levels to play, that’s no longer a problem, thanks to new updates that bring additional content to both games. From Touch Arcade:

Candy Crush Saga has a new Crumbly Coast episode, where you’ll be playing through 15 new levels to help Harry the Big Foot get the cookies he so desperately desires. These new levels pushCandy Crush Saga up to a whopping 905 levels. One-tenth of the way there from angering Vegeta!

The follow-up game Candy Crush Soda Saga isn’t missing out on new levels, either. Its new Sodalicious Spa episode adds in 15 new levels for a total of 345. Both of these level packs come right at the end of each game, so they’re meant for the hardcore players who have gotten that far and need more to play.

Devious Dungeon 2 Review: Anything But Medieval

Devious Dungeon 2 is a platforming RPG from Ravenous Games, the makers of Random Heroes and League of Evil. According to 148Apps’ review for the title, it’s incredibly simple, but incredibly fun.

[Devious Dungeon 2 is] so simple, but you’ll find yourself itching to come back for more, working your way through the castles and watching as you get stronger and stronger.

King Soft-Launches Alpha Betty Saga

We can say this for King: The studio keeps itself busy. The makers of Candy Crush Saga recently soft-launched a word-building game called Alpha Betty on the Spanish Google Play store. You can also give it a try (worldwide) on Facebook.

After playing the first few levels of Alpha Betty Saga on Facebook, it’s not hard to see what King are going for here. Alpha Betty Saga is a merging of two worlds: the falling-block, power-up heavy world of Candy Crush Saga and the spelltastic world of games like Scrabble, Boggle and Bookworm Adventures. And from what little we’ve seen, it’s a combination that works really well.

Halo: Spartan Strike Review – Superior Sibling

Two Halo games hit the App Store late last week: Spartan Assault and Spartan Strike. What’s the difference between the two? Eric Ford explains in Touch Arcade’s review of Spartan Strike. Which, incidentally, is supposedly the better of the two top-down shooters, though Touch Arcade ranks both of them highly.

If you want to pick up both games, you can grab them in a $9.99 bundle. That’s a $1 savings! Buy yourself a Spartan-strength coffee.

It’s no question that if I had to choose between Halo: Spartan Assault or Halo: Spartan Strike that I’d pick the latter. It’s brand new, has a host of iterative improvements to the gameplay formula and looks and sounds excellent.

Halo: Spartan Assault Review – Solid Shooting

Halo: Spartan Assault launched alongside Halo: Spartan Strike late last week. According to Touch Arcade’s review, Spartan Assault is a pretty decent twin-stick shooting game.

It’s obvious that fans of the series should check out Halo: Spartan Assault right away, but I think it’s one of the better dual-stick shooters to launch recently on the App Store even if you’re not a Halo fan.

Scarlett Fox Now Free in Temple Run 2

Last month, a grade six student named Madeline Messer wrote an article in the Washington Post asking why female characters in free-to-play games usually cost money to unlock versus their default male counterparts. Imangi Studios agreed making girls pay up for representation is a bit unfair, and made the runner Scarlett Fox a free character in Temple Run 2. Update the app to break down her paywall.

Out Now: Letterpad

Nimblebit, the studio behind games like Tiny Tower and Pocket Trains, is an expert on tiny wee things. So it’s no wonder its latest game, Letterpad, is a simple but fun word-finding game with Apple Watch compatibility. Give it a try; it’s free to download.

The game gives you a grid of letters and a topic. Your job is to find all the words in that pile of letters that relate to the topic. You’re told how many words you need to find, and their length.

Hands-On Preview of Smash Land

Smash Land is Supercell’s next game – theoretically. Even though the title is in soft-launch, Supercell ultimately pulled the plug on another title it soft-launched some time ago, Spooky Pop. Whether Smash Land materializes or not, this hands-on preview from AppSpy makes the physics / RPG game seem pretty fun.

Stealth Inc is Free this Weekend

Stealth platforming game Stealth Inc is free this weekend. That’s a very handsome drop from its usual price tag of $4.99 USD. Since Stealth Inc 2 recently hit PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (via the Humble Bundle store), now’s a good time to get sneaky.

WWE 2K Review: Good Wrestling On the Go

If you can’t bear to be separated from John Cena for any length of time, WWE 2K for mobile should be good company. Pocket Gamer gives the title a 7 out of 10, describing it as a solid brawler that may or may not be worth the price depending on how deep your WWE fandom runs..

There’s a good, chunky single player game here, but at the price that it’s being offered for, you’d expect everything to work a little bit better.
