looking for 2 games

Hey guys, i'm trying to find some games that i'd like to play but cant remember their names..

first one is a racing game , seen from the side, the interesting thing is it was linked somehow with twitter and when someone said something like "meteor" on twitter a meteor show up on the screen

second one i'm not sure was ever released, but the trailer was awesome. it was a game were you had to slash trhough enemies. i remember there was a strong visual style (a bit like flat design : strong bold colors),, it was in 2d, and when you sliced an enemy it was really cut in half (the slice was not just "killing it"). there was some kind of story behind too, but i dont really remmeber

if you guys can help me remember these, you are awesome! thx

The first one is Tweet Land, which has apparently been pulled from the App Store.

Second's a little vague and I don't know if you're talking about a platformer or a slicing game but it sounds like Shadow Blade. Otherwise the closest thing I can think of is Pocket Ninjas.

thanks man!
yes the first one was tweet land!! meh, shame that it was removed

second one i agree i wasnt very clear. i have trouble remembering it well. it's not pocket ninjas or shadow blade. i should add the playing view seems to be first person, in a corridor (a bit like you have in puzzle & dragons). it seems to me like the camera just goes forward and the enemies come at you like that. graphically it kinda reminded me of the samurai jack cartoon

thanks

Ah crap...I think I know exactly what game you're talking about but the name completely escapes me.

EDIT: It had this Sin City feel to it, right? Everything in black and white, with blood obviously being red. I think it played like a rhythm game with taps and swipes. I strongly recall a demo of it releasing way before the full version and it was iPhone only. Oh, and it had animated cutscenes or an intro, yeah? This is gonna kill me. I have to find out what it was.

YES! Well, at least that's what I was thinking about.

well sorry but still not it! the gameplay looks very very similar though. my game is not black and white, but very bright "flat UI" colors. i remember bright pale blues & greens, maybe some purple or something. but for sure it must play very closely to this one. i think i last saw a trailer in late 2014 or so. its quite possible that it comes from a studio that is already famous and that they were teasing their next game. but i'm not even sure the game was ever released. the quest continues!

on the plus side though, red rusher looks totally awesome so i think i'll get it

Ok. One more guess. Bonzai Blade

Edit: I just reread your last post and I think Bonzai Blade is too old. It's from 2012 I believe.

Perhaps it was Ghost Blade?
