One of the most romantic and lucrative professions, at least according to the word on the street is the profession first made popular by the infamous Indiana Jones and later by Lara Croft: grave robbing. For some reason the iDevice has still remained free of such games despite their popularity on both the consoles and the PC. But finally one such game has found it’s way onto the platform after all – Graves Robber is here to unearth the popularity of grave-robbing on the iDevice.
Heavy Gunner 3D is out and serving up 3D action for alien-blasting fans. The action takes place in a cockpit behind dual turrets. Com2uS paid special attention to making killing alien scum fun and intuitive, so apart from pretty nice graphics, Heavy Gunner has a lot of great upgrades and a pretty solid control scheme to recommend it other than its dubbing as ‘Matrix Revolution gunning’ for the iDevice. TouchMyApps will be looking at it later this week, so keep your eyes peeled for our trigger-friendly review. Till then, feel free to discuss Heavy Gunner 3D in our forums.
Piccies, gameplay footage and more after the gap:
“It’s a lonely place”, says the mysterious hero whose fame, brought on by saving the world from tanks, aliens and zombies may have sunk his otherwise indefatigable spirits. Chillingo have kept tight-lipped as to their involvement in the creation of this superhuman, but the ever-vigilant TouchMyApps team are picking through the rubble of falling rumours now.
It appears that the ‘hero’ may be crazy, a larger than life character too caught up in his role, in the carnage he dealt. We will find out more later this month when Hero’s story is expected to debut at the App Store. Till then, hang tight with these images and interview.

One of the best things about the AppStore is the fact that it really gives tiny indie teams their chance at the gold.

Feel free to discuss Necromancer rising in our forums.
Gamevil is one of those companies that simply can do no wrong on the AppStore. After the first true Action/RPG – ZENONIA – which held the titles of the best iPhone RPG for quite some time they followed up with the excellent HYBRID: Eternal Whisper – the game that set the bar for side-scrolling beat-em-up games on. A now they are releasing Vanquish: The Oath of Brothers. Can it make the same impact as the other Gamevil titles?
Guerilla Bob is one of the App Store’s most hyped and anticipated games. The last time I saw this much hype was just before Chillingo’s MiniGore came out. I know many of you may want to strangle me for saying this, but I think that blockheaded game got lucky. Will Guerilla Bob make me say the same thing? No, and here’s why…
Rejoice Assassin fans, Ezio has now entered the App Store once again. Assassin’s Creed II Discovery has finally re-appeared on the App Store after an unexpectedly release several weeks back, only to be pulled shortly without warning. However, this time, it appears that Ezio is here to stay.
Ubisoft, Assassin’s Creed II Discovery – $9.99
Oh, my head. I shouldn’t have drank that much yesterday. It feels like my horns are going to fall off. And what’s that damn racket?! Arghh, those damn looters are in my dungeon again. Sigh… Time to go spread my claws a little bit. Oohh, yummy peasant hearts. And those ugly big iron-covered knights have stashed away some nice weapons. Ahhh, just what I wanted – now I can finally despatch those thieving villagers and show them who’s really the boss around here!
Games based on TV shows or Movies have earned quite an ill reputation on PC and consoles. A lot of cash gets put into the overall franchise marketing and the games themselves often turn out to be C class products. On the iPhone, however, quite a number of Movie and TV-show based titles have already been released and some have even received well-deserved praise. And I’m happy to report that Spartacus: Blood and Sand is one of the better ones.
