Does Not Commute is a strategic driving game about taking a stressful drive through a neighborhood in the 1970s. Lonnie is on it, with his trademark stream-of-consciousness monologue carrying us through to the end. In any case, the game looks totally bonkers and like a bunch of fun.
The Minions are coming back to theaters on July 10 after a very successful appearance in the 2010 movie Despicable Me. To gear up for the film, EA is coming out with an iOS game called Minions Paradise, which puts the lovable yellow critters in a Clash of Clans type game. Weird. The game is out as a soft launch in New Zealand and is expected to hit the U.S. soon. In the meantime Lonnie has taken the game for a spin, so check out the video above.
EA Sports UFC is a “wrestly, fighty, man-punchy game” (to use AppSpy’s own magnificent words) that recently received a worldwide launch on iOS. If you’re still uncertain about whether or not you want to give the game a download, take a look at AppSpy’s hands-on video.
Free-to-play PC MMORPG Forsaken World is getting a mobile version sometime in the future. Aside from a teaser trailer, there’s little information on this adaptation. The game’s site does promise great-looking 3D graphics, PvP, and exotic mounts (every MMORPG needs them), so we can count on that much. We’ll have more information as it becomes available.
If you’re thinking of picking up Halo: Spartan Strike to bring some futuristic military action to your iOS device, you might want to take a look at it in action before you do so. Here, Lonnie takes the game for a spin and dubs it “pretty Halo-y.” Good enough for me.
AppSpy has a video review of Amazon Game Studios’ horror title, Lost Within, so you can get a good look at the title in motion. Scared? AppSpy wasn’t necessarily frightened, but apparently there’s still a decent horror / adventure game here.
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.
Knights of Pen & Paper 2 is a self-aware game that combines traditional role-playing (think Dungeons & Dragons) with computerized role-playing. The end result features a lot of fourth wall-breaking, cheerleader dwarves, and troglodyte bubble parties. Take a look at AppSpy’s hands-on of the game, and download the finished product on May 14.
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.
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.

Dawn of Titans, Zynga’s next game, is a big deal for the beleaguered studio. Pretty fitting for a game about armies and titans. AppSpy has a hands-on preview of the strategy game, including an appearance from a titular titan.
Ys is a long-lived action RPG series, but Western audiences never embraced it as readily as Eastern audiences. We’re getting another chance to show Ys some love with Ys Chronicles 1, a mobile remake of the series’ first episode. If you’re not familiar with Ys, it’ll be a perfect place to start. No word yet on when the game will hit iOS and Android, but we do have a lovely-looking story trailer.
NBA Jam is a classic basketball game with a long history of being a ridiculously enjoyable entry in the genre, dating back to the Super Nintendo. It continues in this fine tradition on iOS, and YouTouber Lonnie takes it for a spin. Enjoy the results.
Square-Enix’s upcoming mobile RPG Mevius Final Fantasy has undergone a slight name change. Say hello to Mobius Final Fantasy. While you’re at it, say hello to this new trailer, which shows off some new jobs. It’s in Japanese, but since Mobius Final Fantasy is coming to the West at an undisclosed date, it’s still worth watching.
The Guitar Hero franchise is resurrecting alongside the Rock Band franchise, and everything old is new again. The upcoming Guitar Hero game, called Guitar Hero Live, is particularly intriguing because the audience reacts directly to your performance – and the “full game,” which comes with its own guitar controller (the one in your closet is still obsolete – sorry), is reportedly coming to mobile, too.
Guitar Hero Live is coming this fall, and we’ll surely be hearing more information about the game and its mobile iterations as the summer rocks on.
Want to watch the stream-of-consciousness YouTuber Lonnie play the hyper-gory fighting game Mortal Kombat X? Of course you do. Here it is in all its hilariously violent glory. There was so much kombat that Lonnie couldn’t stuff it all into a single video. You can watch part 2 here.
Skullduggery! is a physics / platforming game for mobile that stars a tax-collecting skull.
