    Asphalt 8: Airborne review

    By 11 September 2013

    Racing onto smartphones and tablets is Asphalt 8: Airborne, the latest chapter in the popular racing series from Gameloft. As anyone familiar with Asphalt would expect, this latest iteration is adrenalin-filled, nitro-fuelled, racing that sees you hitting...

    APP OF THE DAY: Rayman 2: The Great Escape review (iPhone)

    By 28 December 2011

    Rayman 2 is an app that has been available on the iPhone for quite some time, so why are we doing it now? Simple really, Gameloft has gone slightly mad and started shifting a whole selection of its best apps for 69p. This means you can pick up the likes...

    APP OF THE DAY: Asphalt 6: Adrenaline HD review (Android)

    By 15 April 2011

    It's nearing to the of Android Week on Pocket-lint and as the team has forced this particular editor of news to only use an Android handset (in this case, a HTC Desire HD) in preference to an iOS device or two, it seems fitting that we finish with an...

    APP OF THE DAY: Sacred Odyssey: Rise of Ayden HD review (iPad)

    By 10 February 2011

    We love a bit of role playing at Pocket-lint Towers. Mrs Pocket-lint particularly likes the fireman's uniform, although we got mistaken for the real deal the other day and we had to rescue a family of four stuck in a lift. Of course, there's another form...

    APP OF THE DAY: War in the Pacific review (iPad)

    By 17 January 2011

    This isn't the first time that we've featured an app from Gameloft in our App of The Day series, but it is the first time that we've included an app from the French developer that isn't a game. You see Gameloft has branched out with its App Store offerings,...

    Gameloft: Dungeon Hunter 2 iPhone hands-on

    By 8 December 2010

    Set 25 years after the first game, Dungeon Hunter 2 has a wonderfully transparent and simple plot. Even the Gameloft product sheet keeps it as basic as can be: "You are one of the immortal king’s sons. Survive a war, escape from prison, and travel across...

    Gameloft: Shadow Guardian iPhone hands-on

    By 8 December 2010

    Shadow Guardian is, without a doubt, the most ambitious title for iOS devices from Gameloft yet. Indeed, it's so content rich and full of graphical detail that it is surely stretching the boundaries of what is possible on the current generation of Apple...

    Gameloft: N.O.V.A. 2 iPhone hands-on

    By 8 December 2010

    Sequels are very in this Christmas, at least round Gameloft's way. We've seen Asphalt 6, there's Dungeon Hunter 2 to come, and N.O.V.A. 2 is the second instalment of what is, possibly, the best first person shooter Apple devices have seen to date. The...

    Gameloft: Asphalt 6: Adrenaline iPhone hands-on

    By 7 December 2010

    The Asphalt driving game franchise has been extremely successful for Gameloft, but Pocket-lint can safely say that iPhone and iPad owners haven't seen anything yet. Asphalt 6: Adrenaline has been completely rebuilt from the ground up (no pun intended)....

    Gameloft: Eternal Legacy iPhone hands-on

    By 7 December 2010

    Make no bones about it, Eternal Legacy, coming from Gameloft for the iPhone and iPod touch just before Christmas, is the company's love affair with Japanese RPGs made real. It offers around 16 hours worth of story mode, with full voice acting and magnificently-detailed...

    APP OF THE DAY - Spider-Man: Total Mayhem HD (iPad)

    By 16 November 2010

    If there's one thing that's universally disappointing about particular games on Apple's App Store, it's that they aren't, ironically, universal. Gameloft is one of the biggest perpetrators of this, making HD versions of most of its iPhone hits separate...

    APP OF THE DAY - Modern Combat 2: Black Pegasus (iPhone)

    By 11 October 2010

    There are two things that you can rely on Gameloft to do. The first is to take successful console titles and give them its own distinctive flavour. The second, is to make cracking games that sell for cheap prices. And today's App of The Day is no exception....

    Guitar Rock Tour - Nintendo DS review

    By 27 November 2008

    Music games seem to be taking over the world. Can Gameloft get into the action with their Rock Tour for the DS? We get strumming to find out. Guitar Rock Tour takes on the familiar premise of letting you play along to a number classic rock anthems. In...
