While Radiangames' Inferno 2 has been delayed as the game has wound up a bit bigger than what they expected it to be, the studio's monthly release schedule continues unabated.

'Crazy Taxi: City Rush' Starts Picking up Passengers Worldwide on July 31st

Sega's Crazy Taxi: City Rush is leaving its soft launch period and releasing worldwide on July 31st, this Thursday. For those unfamiliar with the game, it's a free-to-play take on the Dreamcast classic Crazy Taxi [$4.99], which the price tag should indicate is also on mobile. It's still a classic, and it appears to be sticking around on the App Store even with the free-to-play version now. Take notes, EA. City Rush is a lane-based take on that "pick up passengers in a taxi, and weave through traffic to get to the final destination as quickly as possible" gameplay that made it so famous. ..

Oh hey, here's a pleasant surprise on a Tuesday morning: the latest Kairosoft game has just hit the App Store worldwide: Kairobotica [$4.99]. Yes, this is another simulation game from the company that are masters of the simulation genre, that they became known for with Game Dev Story [$4.99]. And this one?

Zombie Commando [$3.99] is the rare premium game without in-app purchases that I think would actually be better if it had them, because with the current structure, it's grinding or nothing. Zombie Commando's premise is like many more before it: kill wave upon wave of zombies. This time, players control an entire team of zombie killers, all at once, across fifty missions...

So, I have good news for you quality members of society: Paint it Back has new levels. The new levels come in a bonus room called The Archives. These levels are meant for advanced players who have torn through most of the game's rooms already, requiring 100 medals to unlock. Complete all of The Archives, and you'll unlock the Basement Dweller achievement...

When we reported that King of Fighters '98 [$3.99] was coming to mobile soon, we were not kidding around, as soon meant "this week" – you can download this classic Neo-Geo fighting game regarded as one of the best in the series right now. The port is done by the usual suspects at DotEmu, who handle most of the King of Fighters and SNK games ports. Much like their other ports, there's gamepad support, including MFi gamepads, though the touchscreen controls have been surprisingly adequate for pulling off the convoluted super moves. ..

David OReilly's Mountain [$0.99] has proven to be absolute pornography for people who write about video games – from its gameplay or lack thereof, to the mysterious things that can happen, even we've gotten into it. After all, we did stream the supposed ending – or at least an ending, even if OReilly claims it's not the true ending. Well, I have good news: an update is out now for the PC version and is coming soon to mobile...
