There’s no shortage of runner games on Apple’s mobile gaming platform, but Curio stands apart from the rest by being horror themed, and having a fucking weird trailer. The game came out last December, but a brand new update that went live yesterday added more than 50% more content to the game, including new items, Easter Eggs, and a tutorial. I could keep talking about it, but I think I’d rather let Tommy Wiseau (writer, director and star of The Room) give you an idea of what you can expect from it in the trailer below.
You can grab Curio on the iTunes App store for a cool .99 cents. Head past the break for some more info about the game and what its first update has added to it. READ MORE
You readers seemed to love Piranha 3D. No, seriously, look at the user ratings. Well, you’ve got writer Josh Stolberg to thank for that. The man is also the writer behind the Sorority Row and is the co-producer on the upcoming Piranha 3DD. Here’s some more movie news directly from the mouth of Josh: “I’m producing a horror movie called “The Expedition” shooting in September, and directing a horror-thriller called “Stowaway” later this year. Recent non-horror projects include writing and directing the indie film Conception making the rounds at film festivals across the country (www.conceptionmovie.com), a remake of Hitchcock’s To Catch a Thief at Paramount, and a film adaptation of Helen DeWitt best-selling book, “The Last Samurai“. “

Backflip Studios, in partnership with MGM Studios, is proud to announce that its highly anticipated homage to Sam Raimi’s Army Of Darkness is now live on the Apple App Store with Army of Darkness: Defense, a mobile castle defense game based on the 1992 classic film Army of Darkness.
Defense takes place during the pivotal castle scene within the movie where Ash and his allies defend the powerful Necronomicon within Lord Arthur’s fortress from the onslaught of Deadites. Gamers take on the role of the chiseled chin, one-liner-spouting Ash while summoning familiar troops, spells and weapons from the movie to help in the defense. Gameplay features include over 150 direct lines of dialogue from Bruce Campbell (!) as Ash Williams, and beautifully animated graphics using the well-known “Granny 3D” engine. In the game, Ash has the ability to call upon a wide variety of allies to help preserve the Necronomicon including swordsman, armored knights, archers and more. In addition to the originally composed sound and music, the app also features many of the famous characters from the movie including Arthur, Henry, Sheila, the Wiseman, Evil Ash, and more.
You can purchase the iPhone/iPod Touch version for $0.99 here and the iPad version for $2.99 here. I’m not sure if there’s a difference between tower and castle defense games (other than the exact location you’re stationed), but if it’s anything like Plants Vs. Zombies, I’ll be praying for a port.
EA recently unveiled a slew of titles coming to Apple’s iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, one of which will be take place in the Dead Space universe. This isn’t a huge surprise since a mobile installment in the series was listed among upcoming EA releases some time ago, but the fact that the PSP and DS aren’t getting any dismembering love is a little surprising.
However, this will not be the same game the consoles are getting in January, instead this game will bridge the gap between the original and its upcoming sequel. Kind of a Dead Space: Case Zero, if you will. If this tickles your fancy, head past the jump for a release date, more details on the game, and the other EA titles making their way to Apple’s platforms. READ MORE
