'ReRunners', an Upcoming Platformer, is an Asynchronous Competitive Multiplayer Game

As I was reading about ReRunners, the upcoming platformer by Klang Games, its description got me immediately interested: asynchronous, competitive platformer. I love good multiplayer games on iOS, and the idea of a competitive platformer that I can play at my own pace sounded like a great idea. A few words about the developers first. Two of the three founding members of Klang Games have worked on the multiplayer games Eve Online and Dust 514, so between them they bring plenty of experience on designing multiplayer games. ReRunners seems to be a product of those experiences as it will be set in an open world and will combine adventure, racing, action, and RPG elements in a socially engaging environment...

'Five Nights at Freddy's 4' Is Now Available on Steam, iOS Version Hopefully Following Soon

Much like the mythos surrounding Five Nights at Freddy's, the release of the fourth entry in the popular jump-scare series has been rife with vague clues and false leads. However, despite all signs pointing to an August 8th release date, Five Nights at Freddy's 4 has just gone live on Steam, today, July 23rd. Accompanying the release on Steam is a note from developer Scott Cawthon stating: "Ok, so as many of you already know, I'm bad with release dates. The game is finished. Enjoy!" Indeed, good sir, indeed...

Catch a Ultra-Brief Glimpse of Prettygreat's First Game in This Just-Released Video

If you've been wondering what the guys at Prettygreat have been up to since the huge news that Hipster Whale, the developers of Crossy Road, game them a big ol' chunk of money... This brief video just posted by the team gives you a bit of a tease. It seems like they've been carrying stuff, eating sandwiches, spinning in office chairs, and making a game which you get a few fraction of a second glimpses of:..

'Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon' is Coming August 6th, New Trailer Revealed

Earlier today while writing a story about Furdemption's forthcoming update, I mentioned that I absolutely hated spiders, but I forgot about one very important exception: Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor [$1.99 / $1.99 (HD)]. Normally I can't stomach even looking at a spider, but in that game it was a great pleasure to experience life as a tiny eight-legged creature exploring a massive mansion; platforming, defeating enemies, and solving puzzles. As you probably know, Spider was our Game of the Year pick way, way back in 2009, and developer Tiger Style Games has been working on the sequel Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon for several years now. Well, it's been a long time coming, but the new Spider finally has an official release date just a couple of weeks from now on August 6th. Check out a brand new trailer as well...

'Five Nights at Freddy's 4' First Impressions - "Takes Horror to a Whole New Level"

If you're chomping at the bit for more information regarding the upcoming Five Nights at Freddy's 4, here's two videos you absolutely must watch by Five Nights at Freddy's YouTubers Dawko and Razzbowski. As is with all things in the FNAF universe, these videos are "reactions" to the game, complete with both Razzbowski and Dawko screaming at jump scares- Which the new Five Nights at Freddy's 4 will be absolutely jam packed with...

'Prune' is a Gorgeous Game of Tree Cultivation Releasing This Week

Prune, developed by Joel McDonald and Kyle Preston, is looking like quite the interesting atmospheric puzzle game, coming this week. Basically, your goal is to grow out trees, starting by drawing a line from the base of the tree, and watching it grow upward into the light. There are obstacles that are in the way, and you can slice off branches to help it grow, as these will inhibit how long the tree and branches can get. So, like a master of bonsai trees, you'll be cutting and snipping all over the place, trying to get to the light...

'Tap Quest' Will Blend Simplistic Tower Defending with Chaotic Onscreen Action

One of the things I cherish in a mobile game is unnecessary visual flair. Match-3 games are a good example of this. Take two mechanically identical matching games, one with little fanfare when you make a match and one that literally showers you with particle effects and flashiness. I'll take the one with superfluous visual effects every single time! So this brings me to Tap Quest, the first mobile game from publisher Nanoo Company. ..

Kabam's Mobile RPG 'Star Wars Uprising' Soft-Launches in Select Regions

Last month Kabam and Disney announced a new mobile RPG called Star Wars Uprising that was set to take place in-betweeen the sixth episode of the main movie trilogy Return of the Jedi and the forthcoming seventh episode The Force Awakens which launches later this year. Well, looks like Star Wars Uprising has just soft-launched in several regions of the App Store, as spotted by the eagle-eyed members in our forums. ..

'Space Miner Wars' Soft Launches, Combines 'Space Miner' with 'Clash of Clans'

One of the cooler games from GDC 2015, Space Miner Wars from Venan Entertainment, is currently in soft launch in New Zealand, Australia, and Singapore. This follow-up to one of the best games from the earlier days of the App Store, Space Miner [$3.99], was one of our favorite games from GDC 2015, and now it's possible to play it, at least in a bit of an early form. Who knows how long it'll be before a global launch...

'Hex Brutal' is an Old-School Shmup from Appsolute, Launching This Week

Appsolute Games is putting out games on the regular, and their latest game is pretty neat. Hex Brutal is a horizontally-scrolling shoot 'em up launching for free on the App Store this week. I've worried when talking about shmups recently that I call anything a "bullet hell" game when they might not fit that qualification. Well, Hex Brutal is more akin to Gradius and other old-school shmups, where the challenges come from tricky enemy formations and obstacles in your way that you have to shoot down. It's a refreshing change of pace, as there's more to life than just dodging bullets...

'Incurve' is a Challenging Premium High Score Game from the 'Pinna' Developer

Independent developer Riku Tamminen, developer of Pinna [Free], has announced his newest game, called Incurve. This game has you launching a red ball upward through shifting mazes, as you orbit floating orbs. Each orb you hit gives you more points, but you must be careful to launch yourself at the right angle in order to hit another orb and not go flying off of the screen. The walls will move, so you might bounce off of one of them, or you might hit a floor that's only there for a brief moment. Be quick, and be careful...

Puzzle-Strategy Hybrid 'The Long Siege' Launches This Week

I'm getting soft when it comes to match-3 games. You Must Build a Boat [$2.99] turned out to be a ton of fun, I'm excited about Adventure Time Puzzle Quest, and now The Long Siege threatens to make me get over my curmudgeonly match-3 ways. It's releasing this week on Thursday, July 23rd, for $1.99, and not only does it look stylish, it's a ton of fun, and does some cool things differently from other match-3 RPG-type games...

'Tilt to Live' Creators One Man Left Bringing 'Space Food Truck' to iOS

One Man Left, developers of fine games such as Tilt to Live 2: Redonkulous [$2.99] and Outwitters [Free], announced a new game, Space Food Truck, in the past couple of weeks, but I was disappointed to learn that it wasn't coming to mobile. Well, apparently One Man Left pulled a 180, and have announced that they're bringing the game to iPad and Android tablets as well as to desktop. The plan is for the game to hit desktop first, and then to launch on mobile...

From the Forums: 'Snail Bob 2' from TinyBuild Games Needs Beta Testers

Want to help TinyBuild help test their upcoming physics puzzler Snail Bob 2? Well, they've just posted on our forums that they're launching an open beta test for the game. Thanks to the new Testflight, they should have a bunch of slots for interested readers. TinyBuild claims the game has been played over a million times across its myriad versions, and we've gotten to check out an early version of the game:..

'Adventure Time Puzzle Quest' Launching this Thursday, New Trailer Released

Back in May we learned that D3 Publishing was teaming up with Cartoon Network to create a Puzzle Quest spinoff based on Adventure Time, and today we've learned that that game–the appropriately titled Adventure Time Puzzle Quest–is all set to launch this Thursday. In connection with the release date announcement, a new Adventure Time Puzzle Quest trailer has been released, so give it a look...

In Upcoming Game 'Spelldom' You Attack Towns With Words 'Clash of Clans'-Style

In a refreshing take on strategy and word-building games, upcoming game Spelldom has you setting up various defenses to protect your Castle from your word-wielding opponents. In this game, you can protect your town by using a variety of defenses in order to stop other players from looting your Castle and then take your word-building skills on the attack to take down other players' Castles. The game has both a singleplayer and a multiplayer mode, with the latter being where the game will probably shine. According to the developers, Hangzone, you'll be able to team up with other players from around the world to share strategies and together get to the top of the Team Rankings. The game will also offer daily and other challenges that will allow you to earn special awards to display in your town...

'Viking Mushroom' is an Absolutely Gorgeous Platformer Coming in 2016

Okay, if you like platformers on mobile, I've just the thing for you today. Don't believe me? Take a look at the gameplay video below. Viking Mushroom, an upcoming platformer by development studio MobGe, definitely has plenty of charm and interesting ideas. The game looks quite a bit like Rayman both in the very colorful environments and the apparent humor. In a recent interview for the Examiner, the development team explained that this game is about Vikings and their lives, with every rune and item in the game having a real-world counterpart. Apparently, mushrooms will have an important yet undisclosed role in the game (maybe your ultimate goal is to make the best mushroom soup ever?). The game will feature a unique control scheme, according to the developers, although they didn't want to get into more detail about what makes it so unique. Also, MobGe is very focused on delivering a strong story to the players and aims to employ many new techniques to do so...

You Can Now Sign Up For the Upcoming Beta of 'Steam', the Great Euro Board Game

Good news if you like complex board games on your iPad. Steam, a "re-theming" of Age of Steam, is coming to iOS soon. Steam is a challenging board game designed by Martin Wallace and published in 2009. In this game you primarily build railroads and deliver goods along a constantly-changing network of stations and tracks. Throughout the game you need to balance your need to expand and build more rail networks while, at the same time, taking care not to over-extend. The game has received quite a few awards - 2010 Lys Passione Winner, 2010 Nederlandse Spellenprijs Nominee, and 2009 Golden Geek Best Gamers' Board Game Nominee - and is a favorite over at Board Game Geek...
