Orc: Vengeance is the newest action RPG released by Chillingo where you get to experience console gaming experience on the iOS. The graphics are just beautiful with this isometric dungeon crawler where you play Rok, one of the few remaining orcs alive and must fight for his escape and defeat the Dark One. You engage enemies by just simply touching them but as more enemies gather, you’ll need to use more advanced attack moves by using other gestures like double-taps, circles, and zigzag lines. You can customize your character and equip him with a wide arsenal of weapons that you either purchase or pick-up like two-handed battle axes, swords, war-hammers, etc. With a great soundtrack, excellent graphics and controls, Orc: Vengeance is a definite app to get. This is a universal app that works on both the iPhone and iPad. Check out the trailer below:-
Justice League is finally out for the iOS and it definitely looks pretty cool. This 3D game lets you play 5 different characters such as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash and Green Lantern. Each hero has 12 skills and 5 different suits to power up. You’ll get to battle through 4 chapters with formidable foes like Lex Luthor, Joker, Killer Croc, Ares, Sinestro, Gorilla Grodd, etc. You control the hero via the on-screen directional joystick on the left and one-button smashing and extra buttons for special moves on the right. It gets pretty repetitive but you’ll probably not mind if you’re a fan of Justice League. This is a universal app that will work for the iPhone and iPad. Check out the video gameplay below:-
If you’re old enough to have read Mad magazine then you will probably recognize these black and white spies. Spy vs Spy is now available for the iPhone and iPad where you get to switch between the 8 bit retro graphics mode or a new modern look. Your aim is to find all the hidden items like cash and keys around the embassy and board the plane before your opponent. If you happen to be in the same room as your enemy, you’ll enter a little combat mode with your opponent. There’s also online and local multiplayer mode to get you pitting against your friends. Check out the classic game’s trailer below:-
Inspired by Fruit Ninja gameplay style, instead of slicing fruits this new game for the iPhone and iPad lets you slice up your boss. The setup is at the office as you would expect and you see that typical half bald bad ass boss coming at you. You gain combo points by slicing up your boss into multiple small pieces in mid-air. So yes, it can be quite brutal. Apart from bosses being tossed around, you can collect some radioactive drink which will let you unleash a pretty impressive matrix style slow-motion mode that lets you slash and cut with more accuracy.
At first glance, it’s pretty interesting to see the 3D backdrop scenes keep changing to take you around the office but I realise it’s doing the same thing for each level. Synergy Blade is a nice change from slicing tomatoes and zombies but it would’ve been good if you could upload your boss’s face. One to get if you’re feeling frustrated with your mean boss and want some harmless battering but make sure you don’t get caught. Check out the trailer below:-
Pocket Minions is another tower-building game that has just been released for the iPhone & iPad. Instead of building and enhancing a single tower, you need to build a series of towers that will keep your minions happy and let you battle with dragons. You need to work your minions day and night and I probably sense their excitement when the dragon does come instead of it being a threat. Your minions will help produce whatever they are supposed to do and you’ll need to collect the items every minute or so. You also need to keep your peasants happy like getting a maid in to clean the toilets or get a craftsmen to build a new floor. When the dragons attack, you need to have your barracks ready and you can drag your guards to the rooftop to defend the tower. One problem with the game is that each individual character is so small that you’re gonna have a hard time picking them up. Check out the gameplay below:-
There’s plenty of reminder and todo apps around but check out this new app called Checkmark that’s just released for the iPhone. What sets it apart is that it also lets you remind of things when you arrive at a certain location. So you can set it to remind you to do the laundry when you arrive home or to call your wife when you leave for work. Checkmark lets you add location, date and time based reminders in just 3 simple taps. Check out the promo video below:-
Fieldrunners 2, the sequel to the popular original Fieldrunners is out for the iPhone. The tower defense game was first released in 2008 and it’s only now that a sequel is out as the developers took their time to make it an ever better version. The graphics and enemy AI has been improved while the controls are similar to the first Fieldrunners.
There’s some new towers for you to defend the world like a bee hive tower that shoots bees to your enemies. Earn coins in the game to be used to purchase upgrades. Fieldrunners 2 is currently only available for the iPhone but no news yet about the iPad version. Check out this awesome game from hands-on review below:-
Here’s a game for those waiting for the impending doom of 2012 if what the Mayans say is correct. The End App is an endless runner game for the iPhone & iPad where the setting is as you have guessed, in a post apocalyptic atmosphere. It sounds grim but the scenery is pretty colorful with rusted cars and flaming barrels. The 3D graphics looks pretty good and you maneuver the character left or right by tilting the device. Swipe up to jump and swipe down to glide. Your objective is to collect duct tape and buy stuff for your survival camp. There’s also more than 100 levels for you to explore.
