If you're a Warhammer 40,000 fan, this story is definitely for you. Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf [Free] is a turn-based strategy game with a CCG component first-released on iOS in 2014, and while it had its issues—especially with regards to monetization—it looked pretty cool. A recent developer diary focused solely on the game's visuals, and it's definitely worth a read, especially if you're a fan of the whole universe. As an example of the depth of knowledge needed to design these characters, the developers go over every little piece of the Terminator Armor, describing its purpose but also what each of the symbols and colors mean within the context of the 40K universe...

If you don't like Yogg-Saron's spell shenanigans, you might want to keep away from Hearthstone's [Free] Tavern Brawl this week. The Servant of Yogg-Saron Tryouts, a repeat from last summer, has you picking a class and gives you a deck full of random minions. The fun part is that every time you play a minion, it casts a random spell at a random target. Even though this is a repeat Brawl, you'll be casting quite a few new spells because of the Un'Goro expansion, so it should still feel quite fresh and entertaining. If, of course, you don't like RNG, there won't be much for you to like in this brawl...




It was always a matter of when, and not if, the first update for Oddrok's latest release DROP NOT! [Free] would launch on the App Store. The developer's impressive support of Power Hover [$3.99] coupled with early indications of additional content on the horizon made it almost an inevitability, but it's still surprising to see the first content update be submitted less than a month after the game's release a the start of April. Scheduled for around May 4th, the upcoming update for DROP NOT! will add even more cutesy cuboid characters to the adorable rolling puzzle game, as well as new levels and much more cool new features to celebrate the game reaching over 500,000 downloads in the opening fortnight after its release...

If you've missed playing a bit of soccer on your mobile device (the options are quite limited), Super Crossbar Challenge [Free] will at least let you kick that ball a bit, although your purpose is exactly the opposite of that of a normal soccer game; instead of trying to score, your one and only goal is to hit that crossbar, emulating in that way all those soccer videos where players manage to hit the crossbar as if that thing was the size of a house wall. In Super Crossbar Challenge, you'll have to swipe at the right angle and the right speed to keep hitting that crossbar. If you manage to perform bicycle kicks and volleys and still hit the crossbar, you'll get even more coins. And, of course, you'll use those coins to unlock new characters and new balls...

Just over a month ago, Jam City announced that they had once again partnered up with FoxNext Games to bring another Family Guy game to mobile following 2014's immensely popular Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff [Free]. After a brief soft launch period that game, appropriately titled Family Guy - Another Freakin' Mobile Game [Free], is now available worldwide. Rather than city building, this time you'll be making matches as Peter serves Quahog's residents mix drinks from his mobile booze truck. ..

Early last month we posted about a newly soft-launched game called NASCAR Heat Mobile [Free] from developer 704 Games, and over the weekend that game has now gone live worldwide. You may know 704 Games under their previous name Dusenberry Martin Racing, who acquired the NASCAR license in January 2015 in order to develop NASCAR games exclusively. They teamed up with Monster Games, developers of the original NASCAR Heat series of the early 2000s, to create NASCAR Heat Evolution for consoles and PCs, which released in September of last year to poor reviews. NASCAR Heat Mobile is a collaboration between 704 and long-time handheld racing game makers Firebrand Games...

Cheap and Strong Un'Goro Decks, Quest Talk, Warrior Taunt, and More 'Hearthstone' Weekly News in 'Touchstone' #94

Hello everyone and welcome to another Touchstone Tavern, our weekly Hearthstone [Free] column that brings together the best news and videos from the previous seven day. And what happened in the world of Hearthstone last week? Rogue Quest is still being talked about but not to the extent it had been the last couple of weeks. Instead, there were plenty of positive stories that talked about how great the Un'Goro meta is at the moment. We also have the best decks to play right now as well as the best decks if you're low on cards and dust. There's even a Street Fighter story today. Let us begin...

Apparently, there's a big Clash of Clans [Free] war coming up this weekend, and you can watch part of it if you want to. Team Reddit will fight it out with Team Forums for ultimate dominance and, of course, bragging rights in what should be a battle between some of the best players in the game. There will be two wars, a 40v40 and a 50v50 between April 21st to April 23rd. Out of all the contestants, 10 really good players were flown to Finland and will take part in a Supercell-hosted livestream that you can watch tomorrow at 3PM GMT (sorry, you'll have to do the math to figure it out)...

If you've been enjoying Elder Scrolls: Legends [Free (HD)], prepare for some more fun content this weekend as Chaos Arena makes its return to the game. If you haven't played this mode before, Chaos Arena mixes up the lane conditions and scenario rules and makes for some... chaotic matches (sorry about that). There are fun scenarios that really freshen up the game, like getting three creatures into your deck at the start of the match, switching decks with your opponent, or playing with interesting cards already on the board. There are also interesting Lane Conditions: for instance, when summoning a creature in one lane, another random one of the same cost will appear, or if you have the most cards in one lane at the end of the turn, you deal damage to your opponent, and many, many other entertaining ideas...

'Get Me Outta Here' Review - Don't Have a Cow, Man

The Rossman Bros. have delivered a rather fun arena shooter in Get Me Outta Here [Free]. Starring a middle-aged man (with surprising jumping and rolling skills!) abducted by aliens, and given a limited amount of time to clear them all out with his deadly firepower, what seems like a simple game of run 'n gun action has a surprising amount of depth to it. The heart of the game is you trying to survive the same arena with the same enemies, but interesting strategies that appear over time. Plus, it features a giant weaponized cow boss, and some heavy weaponry to deploy. Who doesn't love that?..

I'm pretty sure there's a whole academic paper waiting to be written about Zynga's transition from Words with Friends to the just-released GIF's Against Friends [Free], both in terms of the transition to primarily-visual mediums and in terms of the antagonism so prevalent on the internet today. And even though I should be more of the words and text generation, I do enjoy the hilarity of GIFs, and that's why I think GIFs Against Friends will find an audience quite easily. This iMessage app has you inviting friends from your phone's contacts, sending them all a pretty silly prompt, and then judging the GIFs they submit anonymously...

A couple of years ago we wrote about Spells of Genesis [Free], a trading card game that uses Bitcoin's blockchain technology to power its in-game economy, and now the game is finally out on the App Store. Let's talk about the game first. In Spells of Genesis players have to build decks by trading and combining orbs before clashing with their opponents. The game plays more like an arcade one than something like Hearthstone, but at its core it's still all about collecting cards, trading cards, and building the strongest decks you can. There are over 200 levels and missions and hundreds of cards to get your hands on...

Games with cats are always a hit in my eyes, but some (weird) people aren't satisfied by just having kitties in their games and want actual gameplay (the horror). The just-released CATS: Crash Arena Turbo Stars [Free], by the developer behind Cut the Rope, should satisfy everyone because it has cats and fun gameplay. As we've written in the past, the game, which had been soft launched as Backyard Battles, has you customizing your vehicles and taking on friends and strangers in a battle arena. You start off with pretty basic vehicles, and as you advance, you get access to better materials and, therefore, build better vehicle...

A bit over a year ago, I previewed an MMA Management game called Fight Team Rivals [Free] and liked what I saw. After quite a bit of time in development, the game is finally out and ready for you to test your MMA skills. Quite a bit has changed since I checked out the game, but at its core is still all about training a team of martial artists across disciplines, trying to build a strong, well-rounded gym, and picking the best tactics for the fights. The game has you taking on all kinds of event types, including single discipline tournaments, style-vs-style showcases, and even asymmetric tag-team fights. You can also take on opposing teams in Rivals mode...

Another week, another Hearthstone [Free] Tavern Brawl, and this one is all about Journey to Un'Goro. An Ancient Recipe is all about the deck recipes found in the Un'Goro crater. All you have to do is pick a class, and then you get to check out the kinds of decks Un'Goro is trying to push. The Druid has a Might of the Dino King deck, the Hunter is all about Dinomancy, the Mage is of the Elemental kind, the Warlock is, of course, Discard Lock, the Rogue revolves around its Quest, and so on. If you want to check out the decklists in detail, you can hop on over here...

Un'Goro Meta, Rogue Quest, Nerf Candidates, and More 'Hearthstone' Weekly News in 'Touchstone' #93

Hello everyone, and welcome to a slightly-delayed Touchstone Tavern, our weekly Hearthstone [Free] roundup of great news and videos. As was to be expected, last week was pretty much all about Journey to Un'Goro, the latest expansion, but this time around not everyone was happy about what the expansion has brought to the game. In terms of gameplay, though, people are enjoying putting together new and, occasionally, silly decks. Unsurprisingly, players are already calling for the nerf of some cards, which is always the case when new cards enter the game. We also got a sense of where the meta stands right now, although the top deck might surprise you unpleasantly. Let's jump into the Un'Goro crater and get started...

New 'Crash Club' Car Customisation Trailer Released, Touting 'One Trillion Possibilities'

Crash Club, the latest massively multiplayer car combat title from Prettygreat, has been high on my radar ever since the title was announced back in January. Notwithstanding the developer's excellent pedigree, the colorful yet anarchic take on the mobile driving genre stood out with its impressive emphasis on customisation, as well as its juxtaposition of chaotic action with careful tactic consideration that looked extremely compelling. While Crash Club soft launched in Australia and New Zealand earlier this month, the developers have today shared some additional details on the degree of design you are able to possess in designing your perfect combat vehicle, and have also shared a new trailer showcasing some of the slickest builds in action...

Hello everyone. Normally you would be reading our Hearthstone [Free] weekly roundup today, but because Easter weekend got in the way, we'll be publishing the weekly column tomorrow instead. It's been quite the week in the world of Hearthstone, so we'll have plenty of stories and videos to talk about. With the expansion and the Standard rotation mixing the meta up and most players still trying to figure out what they should play, the game is in an enjoyable state of flux that comes only right after an expansion drops. I don't know about you, but I've been having fun trying to put new decks together or, occasionally, throwing cards into a deck and seeing what sticks...

As has been the case with recent tournaments, Blizzard is giving you the opportunity to pick a champion and win free packs. More specifically, the Hearthstone [Free] Collegiate National Championship is drawing to an end, and you can pick a champion to root for. Every time that champion wins and progresses in the tournament, you get a free Mean Streets of Gadgetzan pack. Pick wisely, and you can get a few packs; pick the ones I usually pick, and you'll get one measly pack. Remember that once you make your selection, you can't change it; you're doomed to live with it, so pick wisely and carefully...

In recent months we've seen all kinds of interesting takes on the MOBA genre, and the just-released Warlord Strike 2 [Free] is following that trend by trying to mold the typical MOBA experience into a more exciting PvP experience. As you can see from the trailer below, Warlord Strike 2 moves away from lane-based, minion-dominated gameplay and focuses, instead, on hero-to-hero slaughter (I meant honorable fighting). You have plenty of heroes to choose from, each with their own abilities that will take time to learn and master. I like games that you can dive in and play (lose) immediately but that have plenty of depth to discover for those who really want to spend time mastering characters and skills...
