Face your foes head on in Carmageddon: Crashers, available on iOS and Android

It’ll be time to turn up the heat and burn major rubber for all long-time Carmageddon fans out there, as the destructive racer squeals its way onto iOS and Android from today. A respectful reinvention of the controversial car franchise, Carmageddon: Crashers aims to be the antidote to dreary drag strip racing games of times past.

Featuring a suite of classic Carmageddon cars to collect and race around in, Crashers tasks players to work their way up the top of the Crashers league, defeating all enemies in your way. This is drag racing with a difference however, with cars starting from opposite ends of the drag strip in order to race as opposed to simply edging each other out over the finishing line. But will your car do the wrecking or becoming a wreck itself?

A bunch of seriously unhinged Mini Bosses and Zone Bosses plague your path on the road to victory, so it pays to buy new cars and upgrade them. Fill up a garage full of metal mangling machines in time and you’ll be ready to take on sponsors and boost your winnings. Just be sure not to get yourself in a tailspin.

A whole host of power ups help provide a competitive edge, un…

Take a trip through time in The House of Da Vinci, available now on iOS

Fans of all things mind-bending and mysterious will be able to get their fix from today, as The House of Da Vinci graces smartphone screens tasking players to escape and seek the truth. Available now for iOS devices, the kickstarted game from developer Blue Brain Games provides a unique hands-on 3D puzzle experience which tales its inspiration from The Room series.

So what’s the story? You’re placed in the role of the great Leonardo’s da Vinci’s apprentice and it’s up to you to find out what’s behind his strange disappearance. Was he killed by the church? Did some of his machines transport him into another time? Is he hiding under the bed? The only way to be sure is by solving a series of head-scratching puzzles that will see you ferreting out hidden artefacts and unpicking complex mechanisms, while conquering a host of other obstacles that strive to be challenging as well as faithfully authentic to the time.

One of the big motivations for Blue Brain Games when developing The House of Da Vinci, was to provide all that play the puzzle adventurer a true sense of authenticity. The game’s music, architecture, and mood all take inspiration from actual da Vinci concepts, manuscripts and inventions, firmly placing players within the world of 16th century Italy.

It’s the 50th anniversary of Star Trek this year and the latest big screen instalment, Star Trek Beyond, hits the cineplexes this month. That’s awesome news for every sci-fi fan out there.

Set in a world where things are not what they seem, hacker Neo (Keanu Reeves) discovers that what he knows as reality is just a mind game when he’s contacted by Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) and his techno-revolutionaries.

RTS title Battleplans now also available for Android systems

Android owners with a penchant for RTS titles can celebrate: publishers En Masse Entertainment have released their successful title, Battleplans, for Android systems and no longer just Apple products. However, Apple users will be pleased to discover a new update for the title on iOS devices.

Revolving around the gist of the strategy genre, whilst incorporating modern elements such a precision-planning and real-time integration, Battleplans opens up the genre to a vast mass of prospective players.

By either following the main story of ‘Skulls’, where players must strive to advance the skills and special abilities of their playable heroes, or unlocking the endless element of the real-time world, the title ensures hours of immersive gameplay.

The update includes the introduction of a new playable hero: Taigar the Huntress, a quirky little character who is rather fond of sleeping in trees and whose special ability is the Mystical Stag.

CEO of En Masse Entertainment, Sam Kim, wrote of the recent release: “Battleplans provides a fresh, new spin on real-time strategy games and fills a need in the marketplace.

“Players will find themselves immediately getting to the
fun elements of an RTS with easy controls to build heroes and squads, as well as scalable resourc…

Inner Circle now available on the App Store

Like puzzle titles? Like snazzy graphics and an addictive soundtrack to boot? ZPlay’s latest release, Inner Circle, provides just those things for the mass market, with a brand new release that appeals to gamers, young and old. Think of it as a 21st Century Tetris upgrade, if you will.

Since their start in 2010, ZPlay have attracted an impressive following of more than 400 million users worldwide as well as earning top 10 rankings for many of their titles.

The main idea behind the game is to ensure that the varying colours of the outer ring align with those of the ‘inner circle’, before said outer ring comes into contact with the inner one. Winning is achieved by tapping the screen to rotate the circle, then swiping to ensure that it shrinks as soon as possible, garnering more points.

This becomes increasingly difficult as you progress through the game’s 250 levels, which vary in cognitive ability and speed settings, keeping you on your toes throughout.

Additional quirky features include an Arcade mode that allows for indefinite gameplay for true veterans of the title, and a night-mode that protects eyes from the brightness by altering the colour scheme to suit different lighting.

The game can currently be downloaded for free from the App Store for your Apple devices. See how far you can get without this title driving you literally around the bend.
