B-movie horror fans have a lot to be excited about today as it was announced that the cult classic 90s flick Army of Darkness is being adapted into a tower defense game by Backflip Studios.

The last two games developed by Chair Entertainment were 2009's Shadow Complex and the recent release Inifinity Blade in late 2010. The former released on the Xbox 360 through Microsoft's digital download service, Xbox Live Arcade, while the latter came out on Apple iOS devices. In a recent interview with Joystiq, Mark Rein, vice president of Epic Games (Chair's publisher) said that Infinity Blade has in fact been even more successful than the well-received Shadow Complex.
Halfbrick, the developer of the hit iOS game, Fruit Ninja, has returned with another promising looking title. Their oft-used manly hero, Barry Steakfries will be starring again in a game called machine gun jetpack.

Epic Games announced today that the award-winning iOS title from Chair Entertainment, Infinity Blade, will be getting a big content update available for free.

In the mobile gaming world all of the attention is focused on San Francisco for the Game Developers Conference, but that hasn't stopped EA from launching one of its biggest games of the year. Fight Night Champion, EA's new boxing game, is now available for iOS devices.
Before you ask, no, we're not entirely certain why Sonic needs to drive a car in this upcoming racing game. We weren't sure when this title was released last year on consoles either. Our guess: it would look weird if he was running next to the cars of his opponents in a kart-racing game. There's one thing we are sure about: we're pretty excited about this game getting its release on iOS platforms.
Ordinarily, when a developer finds success with a particular game, their follow up project generally follows in a similar genre. Kairosoft's announcement of Hot Springs Story is a perfect example. However, Firemint seems to have no qualms about continually reinventing themselves. Their new game is titled Agent Squeek and stars an adorable secret agent mouse.
SuperBrothers Sword and Sorcery EP is nothing if not unique. There's practically nothing about this game that seems cribbed from other releases, and the new trailer they've released is no different. Presented in an almost Twilight-Zone-esque way, the trailer aims for "audience calibration" to prepare us for the game's impending release.
Game Dev Story was one of our favorite little-known titles from all of last year. It's wonderful blend of quirky humor and addictive gameplay grabbed us and didn't let go for days. Now, the game's developer, Kairosoft, has released a follow up to Game Dev Story titled Hot Springs Story.
