Dungeon Hunter 4 hacking and slashing its way onto iOS this April

Iron Man 3 wasn't the only title Gameloft was showing off at GDC 2013; they also had Dungeon Hunter 4, which promises to be a great addition to their fantasy action-RPG family. Though the game remains free-to-play with optional in-app purchases for some items, Dungeon Hunter 4 has a greater focus single player campaign (while DH3 was more about quick-and-dirty arena matches).

Third Eye Crime - a unique mix of pathfinding gameplay and film noir

Third Eye Crime is a promising puzzle game for iOS that we got to spend some time playing at GDC 2013. Players have to guide a thief through a maze filled with security guards without getting caught. Sounds simple, right? Wait until you see how many guards there are later on in the game and how big their guns are. Luckily, your character can read minds, so you can see where guards have visibility, and around which corners they think you are.

Hands on with Tiny Troopers 2 for iOS at GDC 2012

Live from GDC Simon and I went hands-on with Chillingo's latest tile, Tiny Troopers 2. If you're familiar with the first game, the sequel brings you more of the same great stuff -- more gear, more guns, more machines, more mayhem. We're talking Humvee's with .50 caliber machine guns.

Check out the video up top and if you like what you see, Tiny Troopers 2 has just hit the App Store so go grab it now.

Icycle 2 takes nude bicycling and fish-kissing to a whole new level

The folks at Chillingo were showing off Icycle 2 at GDC 2013, and it broke my brain just a little. The game mechanics themselves are very simple; the controls are ultimately the most basic ones you could have for a platformer game. The real trip is in the art style and storyline.

Hands-on with Frontline Commando: D-Day

We swung by the Glu offices while prepping for GDC 2013 today to check out their next Frontline Commando game, due to launch this Thursday. You'll find a lot of the same third-person, duck-and-cover action of the franchise, along with a few new elements that really sets it apart.

Editor's desk: GDC bound!

I'm about to leave for San Francisco, California and the Game Developer Conference (GDC 2013). I certainly don't have to tell anyone here how great the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad are for gaming. Whether or not Apple "gets" gaming, they've enabled a lot of technology that a lot of developers have used to make great games. That's why, increasingly, iOS is a big deal in the gaming industry, and at events like GDC.

I'll be there along with our gaming editor Simon Sage, and Windows Phone Central's Paul Acevedo. Our goal at the show is to get a better idea of where mobile gaming is going in 2013, get a look at some upcoming titles, and do our very best to bring you all with us. As always, the official stuff will go up right here on iMore, Android Central, CrackBerry, and Windows Phone Central, and if you want the behind-the-scenes shenanigans, you should follow us on Twitter @reneritchie, @simonsage, and @segacon.
