The sequel to the granddaddy of endless running games, Temple Run, will be hitting the App Store tonight, and is already in the New Zealand App Store. Temple Run 2 features the same great swipe and tilt evasion action that you've come to love with a few new additions.
Zynga launched Horn today, a new action game for iPad and iPhone. Sure, the gameplay looks an awful lot like Infinity Blade, but that's hardly a bad thing. The story goes that Horn, a blacksmith's son, is the only one with the power to lift a curse placed on local creatures by malevolent forces.

ORC: Vengeance will be released soon by Chillingo and Big Cave Games, a new developer with some extensive experience from the PC and console gaming world.

Heroes Call recently made a big splash onto the App Store, touting itself as a viable mobile alternative for Diablo fans.

A class action suit has been raised against Apple claiming Siri does not appear to work as advertised. Siri was launched as a key feature of the latest iPhone 4S however it has always carried the tag of beta software.
