'Bumper Tank Battle' from 'Cubed Rally Racer' Creator Coming Next Week

The best way to describe Jared Bailey's next game is that it's Joust with tanks, and yeah, that is pretty much what Bumper Tank Battle is. Releasing next Thursday, October 30th, this is the latest in a series of micro-games that the creator of Cubed Rally Racer [$0.99 / $1.99 (HD)] has been making, following Wrong Way Racing [Free] and Bowl Faster [Free]. The objective here is to drive a tank around an arena, destroying other tanks, but not by shooting at them. No, it's about crashing into them with the front of the tank at a spot that isn't also the front of their tank, indicated by a small colored section of the circle surrounding each tank. ..

'Proun+' Will Finally Bring the Artsy Tunnel Racer to iOS

Dutch developer Joost van Dongen's Proun was a successful indie racing game made a few years ago that had been on a lot of folks' wishlists for a port to iOS, especially after last year's announcement that it was coming soon. Now three years after the original's release, Engine Software has teamed up with van Dongen to make Proun+ a reality for iOS, coming soon. This is a modern-art-inspired tunnel racing game where the goal is to rotate a ball down a path replete with a variety of obstacles, with the ability to brake and boost, though as opposed to being something of a time-survival game, this has you racing against computerized opponents, with an objective to complete levels as quickly as possible...

'Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf' Launching Worldwide October 28th, New Trailer Released

Over a year ago, back in August of 2013, developer HeroCraft announced a card-based tactical strategy game set in the Warhammer universe called Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf. The initial screens looked great, and the following December a brief trailer was released that gave us a glimpse at the game in action. A lot of time has passed since then, but today HeroCraft has finally announced a worldwide release date for Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf. It's coming next Tuesday, October 28th. Here's a brand new gameplay trailer...

Regular readers of our site know that we're big fans of Foursaken Media, and it's almost a running joke by now just how productive the team of four brothers is at pumping out new iOS games.

'Train Conductor 3' Resurrects The Voxel Agents' 2010 Train Puzzler

The Voxel Agents have announced that they are working on Train Conductor 3, the latest in their series, of, well, train conducting games. Apparently Australians don't mess around with the names of games. Look at Fruit Ninja [$0.99 / Free], or Jetpack Joyride [Free], both games that accurately describe what they are. So goes Train Conductor. The third entry in the series, the first since Train Conductor 2: USA [$1.99], which came out in 2010 but was recently updated for the iPhone 6/+, takes the train action to Europe and the Golden Age of steam trains, helping to get trains to their destinations all over Europe. One of the new challenges to take on are curved tracks, which will throw a wrinkle into preventing train collisions...

'Puzzle to the Center of the Earth' from Foursaken Media Drops on Thursday

Foursaken Media's Puzzle to the Center of the Earth is coming out this Thursday, October 23rd. You've played puzzle platformers before, but this is quite literally a puzzle platformer, where making matches of at least three blocks is necessary to move the protagonist around the levels, with a limited number of matches able to be made per level, and secrets to help dig up. As well, certain formulas of matches can be made in order to do things like blow up a whole heap of blocks at once.

Final Release Version of Mojang's Card Battler 'Scrolls' Expected Late Next Month

A small team in Mojang’s studio in Stockholm, Sweden has been quietly and unassumingly developing Scrolls, a card-based tactics battler, for over three years, always seemingly overshadowed by something else. First, always and inescapably, by Minecraft [$6.99], a world-conqueringly massive phenomenon that grabs attention like a black hole grabs light. In 2012, the game was the subject of a trademark dispute with Bethesda Softworks, who argued that the title infringed on their Elder Scrolls series. The lawsuit was settled and Scrolls moved into open beta last year, without much fanfare. Microsoft’s recent announcement that it plans to acquire Mojang for $2.5 billion once again dominates any discussion about the studio or its games...

PlayStation Era Beat 'em Up 'Gekido' Coming to iOS

Italian developer Naps Team has worked on a number of titles in their twenty year history, but of their original IPs most people would probably known them from their Amiga fighting game Shadow Fighter, or their PlayStation 1 brawler Gekido: Urban Fighters. In fact, Gekido seems to have something of a cult following, and there was even a sequel released for the Game Boy Advance called Gekido Advance: Kintaro's Revenge. Today, Naps Team has announced that the Gekido series is heading to iOS devices, and they've provided the first screen of what it will look like...
