Kiloo Games' Next Game is 'Dawnbringer', an Open World RPG Releasing June 16th

Kiloo Games has made its name (and fortune) on the very successful Subway Surfers [Free], and has recently been leveraging that fame and fortune to expand to other genres. So, Kiloo gave us Spellbinders [Free] and Tesla Tubes [Free], but its next project, Dawnbringer, is definitely much more ambitious than all the previous ones. Dawnbringer, which is the fruit of a Kiloo-Copenhagen Creators collaboration, is an open world RPG where the hero is fighting to save the world of Mourngard, and in the process he might have to challenge his reckless brother in order to save the world (another humble RPG hero). The game features hack'n'slash swipe combat, a campaign that should take hours to complete, and the ability to craft and enchant powerful gear...

I you are familiar with Rayman Jungle Run [$2.99] and like runners in general, this is a game to watch. Red Story is brought to you by From Paris Entertainment with Floriane Marchix being part of the team. The name alone might not mean much but she was a concept artist on the Rayman Origins project. There is no denying the warm resemblance to Rayman. The similarities don’t stop there, it will be fun looking out for easter eggs and design ressemblances...




Could 'Warpship' be the Next Stop for Frustrated 'Clash Royale' Players?

When Clash Royale [Free] descended into out plane of existence, it felt like the harbinger for a lot of other short-form multiplayer games. Warpship, now in soft launch, feels like it's going for that exact thing. You and another opponent face off in real time, using energy similar to Clash Royale's elixir to summon units into the plane of battle. Where things start to differ is that the game isn't lane-based at all, instead having you go straight after the enemy base. Each player has a persistent health that wears down over time, can be increased by killing enemies, and of course, if you go after the enemy base, it'll hurt it. You also have separate abilities that can be deployed that are separate from your unit summons to use too. While there doesn't seem to be a fixed match time, this tutorial video shows off a short match and explains the game:..

The Release Trailer of 'Take Off - The Flight Simulator' Highlights the Serenity of Flying

I've been keeping an eye on the upcoming Take Off - The Flight Simulator for some time now, since it seems to promise the kind of flight simulation game I enjoy. And even though I don't usually care much about trailers, I have to say that Take Off's release trailer is one of the best I've seen recently. I've seen more than my share of fast-paced, in-your-face trailers recently, so I really enjoyed the developers' attempt at highlighting how serene the experience of flying can be. At the same time, the trailer shows off the game's lovely visuals as well as its many features. It truly is very well made and shows off the developers' artistry; I just hope that artistry infuses the gameplay as well...

'Independence Day Resurgence: Battle Heroes' Launches Open Beta in Canada on iOS, Worldwide on Android

We're just about a month away from the release of Independence Day Resurgence, a 20-years-later sequel to the blockbuster 1996 alien-invasion flick Independence Day, and while this new movie will be sans Will Smith it will have the obligitory mobile tie-in game launching alongside it. Zen Studios has partnered up with Fox to create Independence Day Resurgence: Battle Heroes, a game that "tasks players with building an armada of combat units to fight back the resurfacing alien threat in action-packed turn-based battles" according to Zen's blog. Check out the trailer...

Roadhouse Soft-Launches 'Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast'

Back in January Roadhouse Interactive announced that they were collaborating with legendary metal band Iron Maiden for a new mobile RPG called Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast. In it you'd amass an army of Eddies, Iron Maiden's iconic mascot, from various themes and time periods and place them in teams to partake in turn-based battles. In late February, Roadhouse divulged a few new details about the game, as well as a slick new cinematic trailer, which you can see below. Today, Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast has been soft-launched in Malaysia ahead of its planned full launch this summer...

Ubisoft's Collectable Card Game 'Rabbids Heroes' Soft Launched in Canada

This is really happening; yesterday Ubisoft dropped us a note about their upcoming Rabbids game, it's a CCG based on the crazy world of Raddid Rabbits and it just soft launched. You lucky Canadians, or Canadian account holders, can head over to the App Store and start downloading Rabbids Heroes for free. The typical Rabbids fantasy graphic style is appealing and after the first impressions the gameplay seems solid and fun...

The Very Promising Shooter 'Armajet' Is Closing Down Its Alpha on May 31st - Go Play It While You Still Can

One of the best games I've played recently is the upcoming Armajet, the 2D Multiplayer Shooter that's been in closed Alpha since May 13th. I was very pleasantly surprised at how fun the game is and how despite its various Alpha bugs, the game already feels well on its way to be a great competitive shooter for mobile. If you want to check it, though, you need to hurry because the developers have decided to shut down the Alpha on May 31st in order to work on the features the community requested - clan support, leaderboards, and new game modes. So, if you've been meaning to check out this really promising shooter, you have less than a week to do so...

If You've Always Wished 'Street Fighter II' Had More Cats, 'Cat Puncher' is For You

Two things that I absolutely adore in this world: Cats and '90s fighting games. The problem is that I've only ever been able to enjoy these two wonderful things separately… until now. Or in the next couple of weeks, at least. That's because Cat Puncher is getting ready to bust onto the scene, and the easiest way to describe it is Street Fighter II with cats. If that's not a tagline that will sell a million copies of a game, then I don't know what is. Cat Puncher isn't shy about its inspirations, including aping the entire Street Fighter II intro scene (but with cats) as well as featuring a bonus stage where you beat up a car–I mean couch, on a pier. ..

SNK's 'Neo Turf Masters' Swinging to Mobile on June 30th.

Now here is something to write home about. I'm totally allowed to use this old saying because DotEmu, the makers of the recently released Titan Quest [$7.99], are bringing an oldie but goodie to iOS and Android, June 30th. Neo Turf Masters is not just another golf game, this is a classic Neo Geo title from 1996 published by SNK and behind the same guys who made Metal Slug. I have a sweet spot for anything SNK so I can't wait. Neo Turf Masters is a fast paced action golf game, yes that exists. When it was initially released it got high praise for its clever but simple controls, they shouldn't have any problem offering the same experience on mobile...

Aspiring Poke-masters who signed up for the US "Field Test" of Pokemon Go (The fancy name they're calling something that's in between a beta and a soft launch.) should be getting their invites to download the game. If you signed up, today is a good day to spend the whole afternoon endlessly refreshing your email for the invitation. We haven't heard just how many people they're letting in with this initial wave, but hopefully it includes some TouchArcade community members. (How could it not?) Aside from news of this latest invitation wave, Niantic is teased some new screenshots on their blog...

'Flick Golf' Developer Full Fat is Going Full Fantasy with 'Golf Island', Coming this Thursday

Developer Full Fat has been on the scene with made-for-touch sports games for many years now with the likes of the Flick Golf, Flick Soccer, Flick Rugby, and Flick Quarterback series. The whole "flick" thing always made so much sense on a touchscreen, especially in Flick Golf [Free] where you're mimicking the motion of swinging a club and then directly affecting things like spin and trajectory by swiping on the ball itself. It wasn't exactly realistic mind you, but it sure made for some fun golf. Because of that, there was always a sense of fantasy in the Flick Golf series, something they pushed the boundaries of with Flick Golf Extreme [Free]. But that was nothing compared to their latest game, the over-the-top fantasy-themed Golf Island...

'Perchang' to hit the App Store on June 23rd

We recently talked about Perchang’s upcoming game so if you want a brief background story, check out this post. Today they announced that their first game, also named Perchang, will be out on June 23rd. To refresh your memory it will be a puzzle action strategy game with a mixed variety of game elements set in a minimalistic environment that unavoidably evokes the likes of Mirrors Edge and Portal...

'Sacred Legends' Brings 'Sacred' RPG Series to Mobile, and it Needs Beta Testers

The Sacred franchise of games has spanned a whole host of titles, including action-RPGs and beat 'em ups. Now, the series is planning to expand to mobile with Deep Silver Fishlabs and Chimera Entertainment presenting Sacred Legends this summer. This is planned to be an action-RPG where you will command a team of heroes through not only a singleplayer campaign, but also in PVP battles against other players...

'ReRunners' Is Offering Its Beta Players the Chance to Upgrade and Rank up Before Global Launch

I've been playing the upcoming multiplayer platformer ReRunners on and off for quite a few months now (and even wrote a preview). It's a very fun, colorful, and action-packed runner that lets you race against your friend's ghosts. With the game getting closer to release, the developers decided to go an interesting route. Once the game pops out of beta soon, player progress will be erased, which isn't the best thing for those who've spent plenty of time with the game. So, to make it up to them in a way, Klang Games will open up an early access build of the game exclusively for the beta community. This move, which is being done in cooperation with Mobcrush, will let players play what is pretty much the final version of the game and upgrade and rank up their characters prior to the game's global launch...

Long-Dormant 'Hyperburner' Set to Take Off Soon

It's been a while since we've heard about Badpotion's Hyperburner, but good news: the game is just about done, and will be submitted to Apple, with a release to be determined shortly afterward. And with review times as short as they are now, we could be playing this game next week. What a time to be alive!..

'Galaxy on Fire 3: Manticore' Gets 360° VR Trailer and Early Access Signups

Deep Silver Fishlabs has just released a new trailer for Galaxy on Fire 3: Manticore, and it's a unique one. They've released the trailer as a 360-degree YouTube video designed to show off the game's world. While the plan is for the game to launch on standard mobile platforms, if you want an immersive look at the game, grab a Google Cardboard headset, plug in some headphones for the 3D audio, and watch this trailer:..

Fortress-Building Turn-Based Strategy Battler 'All Glory to the Pixel King! 2nd Edition' Arrives this Thursday

A few years back, a super quirky game called All Glory to the Pixel King! [Free] was released in the App Store from developer Steve O'Gorman. It was a super lo-fi and blocky game where you'd build a 2D fortress to surround and protect your king by filling it with all manner of soldiers and weaponry. Then, the game would pull down some other persons' fortress from the magic known as The Internet and you'd duke it out fortress vs. fortress turn-based strategy-style. It was a really clever game that didn't hit critical mass but definitely found a nice niche of players. Well, Mr. O'Gorman has been hard at work completely re-writing the game from the ground up and adding in some neat new features for what he's calling All Glory to the Pixel King! 2nd Edition...

Space Strategy Adventure 'Star Nomad 2' Arrives on iOS June 1st

In late 2014, indie developer Anh Huy Phan brought an incredibly ambitious space combat/trading/RPG/strategy adventure called Star Nomad Elite [$1.99] to the App Store, and despite some rough edges, we thoroughly enjoyed it. Many of the features that were lacking from Star Nomad Elite and all the player feedback was being poured into a sequel, and in December of last year that sequel Star Nomad 2 released to generally positive acclaim on Steam. Here's the trailer from the Steam release...

Colorful Arena Runner 'Crashing Season' Arrives Thursday, New Launch Trailer Released

We first talked about Koukoi Games' upcoming arena runner Crashing Season about a month ago when the slick look of the trailer caught our eye, and we talked about it again earlier this month when Koukoi had submitted the game to Apple for approval and had their fingers crossed for a May 26th release. Well, guess what? The game is approved and is indeed coming out on May 26th! In case you've missed it before, Crashing Season is all about different animals taking revenge on their hunters by running around various arena environments and literally crashing into them to take them out. Check out this brand new launch trailer...
