'Surgeon Simulator' Developer's Next Game is a Bread Simulator, Please Lord Let It Come to Mobile

Those folks over at Bossa Studio are wacky. I mean, they made Surgeon Simulator [$5.99 (HD)], so you have to be a little off your rocker for something like that, no? Today on Twitter, they officially announced their next game, called I Am Bread. Described as "The beautiful story of one slice of bread's epic and emotional journey as it embarks upon a quest to become toasted," I Am Bread is something I need in my life. You'll begin your journey being sliced from a loaf, and then must awkwardly embark on your mission to get toasted. Literally toasted in a toaster. And I think that's the goal of the game?..

'Chaos Rings 3' Launches On The Japanese App Store, Worldwide Release Date Still Unknown

It was only a few months ago that we heard Chaos Rings 3 was being made, and time sure does fly, because it's finally here. Well, depending on where 'here' is for you, I suppose. As of today, Chaos Rings 3 has officially launched on the App Store in Japan for the price of 2,800 yen, or about $25 US, with no IAP whatsoever. We've yet to get even an announcement of its release internationally, let alone a specific date we could expect it, but given the general success of the series worldwide, it's probably safe to assume it is coming at some point...

First Screens for Upcoming 'Micro Battles' from Donut Games

Everyone loves Donut Games, right? For years they've been consistent providers of perfect "coffee break" gaming experiences for our mobile devices, though they broke that trend with their last release, the ambitious action platformer Traps n' Gemstones [$4.99]. However, for their next game they're getting back to basics. It's called Micro Battles and it's a collection of quick, head-to-head mini-games. Here's some screens...

There's a New 'Street Fighter' Match-3 Game Heading to iOS and Android in Japan

One of my all-time favorites is Capcom's Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, or simply just Puzzle Fighter, which blends together the Street Fighter fighting game series with matching gameplay to great effect. We haven't heard much from that series in recent years, but according to the source for all things Street Fighter Shoryuken (via Just Push Start), Capcom is readying another Street Fighter matching game mashup for mobile devices in Japan. The game in question is called Street Fighter Puzzle Spirits, and you can see a Japanese language trailer for it below...

Zen's 'South Park Pinball' Gets a Trailer, Launching this Week

Earlier this month, Zen Studios hinted that they had a couple of new pinball tables in the works starring everyone's favorite troublemakers from South Park, and today they've debuted the first trailer showing off both tables in action. The first table is South Park Super Sweet Pinball and it centers around the main four characters of the show and features all kinds of inside jokes and nods to the show's nearly twenty year history. For the second table, that gentle soul Butters gets to star in his very own pinball game, cleverly titled Butters' Very Own Pinball Game. Check out the trailer...

Check Out the Trailer for 'Epic of Kings', a Gorgeous Action Adventure Game from 'Shadow Blade' Developer DeadMage

You guys remember Shadow Blade, right? It was a killer ninja-themed action platformer released early this year by developer Dead Mage Studio and published by Crescent Moon Games. The combat and platforming were top notch, but what really drove me to love Shadow Blade was its beautiful art style and fantastic soundtrack that actually synced up with your actions. Taken altogether, Shadow Blade was a wonderful experience, and remains one of my favorites of 2014. Today Dead Mage has announced their next project now that they've wrapped up putting an enhanced version of Shadow Blade on Steam Early Access. It's an action adventure game for mobile devices called Epic of Kings, and I think I'll just let the trailer do all the talking...

'Tilt to Live: Gauntlet's Revenge' Gets Its First Gameplay Trailer, Launching this Month

Back in June developer One Man Left was working on a huge content update for their latest game Tilt to Live 2 [$2.99], but as it turned out the update was so huge they decided to spin it off into its own separate game called Tilt to Live: Gauntlet's Revenge. Based on the Gauntlet mode from the original Tilt to Live, Gauntlet's Revenge will expand upon that idea in every way with three different randomized Gauntlet modes to take on in succession before squaring off against the Dot King boss himself. Today One Man Left has released the first trailer for Tilt to Live: Gauntlet's Revenge showing the game in action...

'Kingdom Rush Origins' Revealed as the New 'Kingdom Rush' Game, Teaser Trailer Released

Backin August Ironhide Game Studio spilled the beans that they were working on a brand new game in the beloved Kingdom Rush tower defense series. Their original teaser art hinted that this new Kingdom Rush game would be a prequel of some sort, and today they've officially unveiled the name of this mysterious new game: Kingdom Rush Origins. Sounds pretty prequel-y to me! Along with the official name, Ironhide has released the following teaser trailer...

'Marvel Contest of Champions' Gets a New Cinematic Trailer, Launching Worldwide in December

Earlier this week we told you how Marvel and Kabam's mobile fighting game Marvel Contest of Champions had soft-launched in the Danish App Store, and today in the midst of the New York Comic-Con Marvel has released a new cinematic trailer for the game. The trailer features several of Marvel's iconic superheroes squaring off against one another, and alludes to some of the storyline that frames all the action. As the story goes, The Collector has imprisoned all the Marvel superheroes in crystals, and only releases them so they can compete in the Contest of Champions tournament. The reasons for this and what the contest's purpose are aren't exactly clear, but I have a feeling they're tied to the creepy, giant, partially invisible dude at the end of this trailer...

Check Out 'The Hunted', a Dual Stick Multiplayer Shooter

I've always enjoyed games that do interesting things with your field of view. People gave Doom III a lot of crap, but only being able to see what your flashlight showed you added a weird layer of suspense to the game. Well, in a vaguely similar vein, F5 Games' upcoming dual stick shooter The Hunted throws you into multiplayer battles where vision is everything. Check out the gameplay video:..

Marvel and Kabam's Mobile Brawler 'Marvel Contest of Champions' Soft-Launched in Denmark

At the San Diego Comic-Con back in July, Marvel and Kabam announced an upcoming mobile fighter set in the Marvel universe called Marvel Contest of Champions. Over the weekend, the game was soft-launched in the Danish App Store. From the early impressions in our forums, it sounds like Marvel Contest of Champions is a pared down fighter similar to Warner Bros. and DC's Injustice: Gods Among Us [Free], though with slightly more complex fighting mechanics. Here's the original reveal trailer from the San Diego Comic-Con...

Check Out the Trailer for the Upcoming 'Superhyper' from Sets and Settings

Sets and Settings, the creators of Irrupt [$0.99] and the upcoming Trestle, a Super Crate Box meets Mega Man Battle Network game that they're quietly hammering away on, are about to release their latest title to the App Store, Superhyper. This is a rather challenging lane-based endless runner, as players must try to survive an onslaught of tricky layouts and oncoming blocks, using only lane-switching and a short warp forward to dodge them. Scoring is all about how long you can last – and getting into triple digits is not an easy task...

'Animal Crossing'-alike 'Castaway Paradise' Launching Worldwide this Thursday

Stolen Couch's upcoming sim Castaway Paradise has been in the works for almost two and a half years, or at least that's when the upcoming thread in our forum was originally started, but at long last we'll be getting the final product this Thursday October 9th, the developers have announced. Castaway Paradise is a sim heavily influenced by the Animal Crossing series, and will contain many similar features like decorating your home, donning different outfits, fishing, growing crops, collecting bugs and much more. It'll also run on a real-time clock and there will be special events associated with time and seasons. You can see many of those features in action in the game's launch trailer...

Noodlecake Games Announces Upcoming 'MMM Fingers' from Developers of 'Small Fry'

No Monkeys, the creators of The Adventures of Small Fry [Free], and prolific indie publisher Noodlecake Games have announced their newest game, MMM Fingers, coming later this month. This is a survival game where the goal is to use your finger to drag around the screen, trying to avoid spiked, teethy objects that will be game over. While the game is definitely meant to be a small game that's highly replayable, the creators are aiming for a higher level of polish than most, say, Flappy Bird or Timberman [Free / $0.99] clones. The trailer shows off the animation and detail put into the graphics quite well:..

Upcoming 'Starband Troopers' is a "Rogue-like Musical RPG"

We've seen a lot of cross-genre craziness on the App Store, but this has to take the cake. Just announced in our forums this morning, Starband Troopers is a cross between a rogue-like and a musical rhythm game. As explained by the developer: "It is a roleplaying game with a twist in the battle system using beat game mechanic. It is a sci-fi themed epic story with instruments and musics weaponized. It is also a rogue-like adventure and so every journeys are different!"..
