Roguelike Dungeon Crawler 'The Scrungeon Depths' Looking for Beta Testers

Late last month we checked out the trailer for upcoming top-down roguelike endless dungeon crawler The Scrungeon Depths from developer Chase Holton, who has previously brought us other top-down wonders like Gwarmbee [Free] and Flamboygen [$1.99]. The Scrungeon Depths looked really cool a month ago, but it's actually made quite a few strides in the short time since that last trailer, and the game is even at the point where the developer is looking to recruit some beta testers to put the game through its paces. There's also a brand new trailer for The Scrungeon Depths showing where it's at so far...

Multiplayer-focused 'Street Kart' Looking for More Testers in Our Forums

Street Kart. a multiplayer-focused racing game that's been in beta for quite some time, is looking for additional testers in our forums, so if you're interested, you might want to race over there and apply for the beta. Street Kart is a pretty fun racing game that focuses on short, frantic races and boasts the ability to easily challenge your friends to go do some racing. The game has been improving quite steadily, but there's still a lot of work to be done, which is why the developers are looking for testers who can actually help improve the game...




The Card Game 'Age of Rivals', Inspired by '7 Wonders', Releasing June 22nd

Age of Rivals, an upcoming CCG that takes inspiration from the famous board game 7 Wonders and card games like Dominion and Hearthstone, is coming to mobile June 22nd. As we wrote about a few weeks ago, Age of Rivals has you building a huge civilization with a well-balanced economy, military, culture, and defense in 10 minutes or less. You only have minimal control over your deck prior to the match, which according to the developers encourages more variety. And while it is a strategic game, it is on the casual side...

The TCG/MMORPG 'Eminence: Xander's Tales' Is Going Into Beta Testing After Years in Development

I remember quite a few years ago when a very ambitious card game called Eminence: Xander's Tale got successfully funded on Kickstarter and also become quite popular in our Upcoming Games forum thread. And then it went pretty silent, with the last post in our forum dating back to 2015. Good news, though, because it looks like the game is alive and well and is currently looking for beta testers, although priority will be given to Kickstarter backers. Still, this is great news for all those (including me) who were excited about the game's possibilities...

'All That Remains', the New Adventure from Glitch Games, is Coming June 29th

Back in April Glitch Games, who have previously brought us such adventure game gems as the Forever Lost series and A Short Tale, announced their newest project, a creepy new adventure originally titled The Bunker but renamed All That Remains. As that original title alluded to, though, All That Remains takes place in a cold-war bunker where you'll play as a character named Campbell who wakes up inside the bunker and has no idea how he ended up there. Strangely, you'll be in contact with your sister via two-way radio and you'll also be able to listen in on the emergency broadcast system on the bunker's radio, and you'll need to use the information provided by both to figure out why the heck you're trapped in that bunker and also what the heck is going on above ground in the outside world...

The Upcoming 'Grapple Gum' Is a Smart Take on Grappling Hooks, and It Looks Great

One of gaming's most undeniable truths is that pretty much everyone loves grappling hooks. Why that is so is probably hidden in the depths of our evolutionary tree (I'm sure prehistoric men and women used grappling hooks to evade predators). The upcoming Grapple Gum is all about grappling hooks combined with some very clever mechanics and lovely visuals. As you can see from the trailer below, you have to grapple onto moving balloons and missiles while also shooting at all kinds of targets, including big bosses. And when you fire, the balloons you're hooked on move in the opposite direction in a kind of action-reaction mechanic...

'Hey Wingman' Releases This Week, It's Like a Cross Between 'Lifeline' and 'The Hangover'

A few weeks back we wrote a story about the upcoming Hey Wingman looking for beta testers in our forums, and now the game is ready to offer its silly take on the Lifeline formula this Thursday. For those who didn't read the original story, Hey Wingman uses the Lifeline formula of using a "messaging" app to communicate with the in-game characters, but it removes the real-time part and, instead, adds the kinds of storylines you would find in a movie like The Hangover. In Hey Wingman, you're using a chat app to try and break up your best friend's doomed wedding. You'll be communicating with your buddy Romeo, who's apparently not the sharpest knife in the drawer, as you both try to stop your friend Dan from marrying Jill...

Wacky Physics Game ' Touchdowners' Releasing June 22nd

Take a pinch of wacky physics and add a pinch of American football (of sorts), and you have the upcoming Touchdowners, from the team behind the Golf Zero [Free] game. In Touchdowners, you control a team of 3 players, and you can do three things: jump forward, jump backwards, and throw the ball. Each of your three players has different skills, with the player at the front jumping forward fast but jumping backwards much slower and so on. No matter your skill, the wacky physics will ensure all kinds of silly shenanigans...

Check Out Some More 'Silly Walks' Gameplay Footage

It was just a few days ago that we brought you the news of Silly Walks, an upcoming game from Party Time Monk– er, I mean PART Time Monkey, that has you playing as various types of food come to life who must make their way through gauntlets filled with everyday household items who have also come to life and want to kill you. Yeah, it's a weird and awesome premise. Anyway, that first trailer was more of an overview of the entire game, but Part Time Monkey has recently posted a more direct gameplay trailer showing what the actual game flow of playing through a level in Silly Walks is like. Check it out...

'Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition' Trailer Released, Six Free DLC Characters Announced

Last month, Capcom unexpectedly announced that they would be releasing a brand new mobile iteration in the Street Fighter series, dubbed Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition. Owing to the quality of the last few games in the series that have made the transition to the smaller screen, and an abundance of awesome new features and characters, it was enough to get the iOS fighting game community on our forums excitedly anticipating what this sequel may have in store for us. While there is still no specified release date, Capcom have today released a brand new trailer for Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition, which gives a glimpse of the action, and also divulges some details on the characters we can expect to brawl as when the title finally reaches the App Store...

The Hilarious 'Smash Anarchy' Looking for More Beta Testers

A few months back, we wrote about Smash Anarchy, a fun and silly shooter that was looking for beta testers. After months in development, the game is ready for a final round of beta testers, so if you're interested, hop over to our Upcoming Games forum thread to apply. Smash Anarchy has you protecting the last coffee plant in the world—history's most noble quest if you ask me—and to do so, you have to fight a crazy number of alien monsters coming for you. Your weapon of choice is a fruit gun, because why not...

Open World Dinosaur-Themed MMORPG 'Durango' Gets Another New Trailer for E3

We've been following the progress of Durango, the upcoming mobile MMORPG that takes place in a dinosaur-populated open-world, ever since its first announcement in the fall of 2015. In the year that followed news on Durango was sparse, but late last year developers Nexon and What! Studio ran a limited beta test and that early version of the game seemed to be quite positively received. After dropping a new teaser trailer last week in anticipation of E3, the developers have now launched a more fleshed-out trailer showing off Durango and the many things you can do in this wild game world...

'Neo Angle', a Vibrant Puzzle Game From the Creators of 'Blyss', Is Looking for Beta Testers

Dropout Games have quickly developed a reputation for beautiful minimalistic puzzle games, and their emphasis on accessible gameplay that becomes deceptively difficult is one that suits mobile gaming to a tee. Last year the developers released Blyss [$0.99], which layered an ethereal aesthetic similar to indie hit Firewatch on top of an intuitive dice puzzle mechanic, and in practice it worked rather well. To keep up this momentum, Dropout Games have announced their latest title called Neo Angle, and while its vibrant neon style contrasts that of their previous title, the peculiar pattern-making gameplay looks incredibly cathartic. Not too many details have been released about Neo Angle as of yet, however the developers are looking for beta testers to help try out the game on our forum thread...

'Brawl Stars' Has Soft Launched on the Canadian App Store, Android Version Coming Soon?

A whole host of massive games have been announced at E3 over the past week, and for some time it appeared that the iOS community had missed out on its own major upcoming release at the event. Thankfully, Supercell saved the day, and the announcement of their next 3-on-3 online shooter Brawl Stars was met with much excitement when it came out of nowhere on Wednesday morning. Best of all, you don't have to wait months to try out the latest release from the makers of Clash of Clans [Free] and Clash Royale [Free], as the beta for Brawl Stars has soft launched in Canada today, and can be downloaded from all regions through using our soft launch guide...

RareSloth Announces Multiplatform 'King Rabbit 2'

RareSloth Games has found themselves a nice hit with King Rabbit [Free], the sequel to Furdemption [$2.99], which wound up becoming a sustainable game for them. But they're not done with King Rabbit yet, beyond the expansion packs they've released. They want to take another swing at the concept, and expand it not just from iOS to Android, but to PC and console as well. So, the studio has announced King Rabbit 2 is in development...

We're Getting a 'Blade Runner 2049' Game - I Hope It's Good

I love the original Blade Runner movie for many, many reasons, so I'm really looking forward to the upcoming Blade Runner 2049, the sequel to the classic Harrison Ford movie coming to a movie theater near you October 6th, 2017. And it looks like Blade Runner is coming to your devices, too. Today, Alcon Entertainment and Next Games announced that they are working on a Blade Runner 2049 mobile game. Although we don't have much more information about the game, we do know that the game hopes to be a "highly engaging mobile game enjoyed by millions of fans globally."..

Netmarble's 'Lineage2 Revolution' MMORPG Soft Launched

Netmarble is working on an open-world mobile action-RPG in the Lineage series for mobile, and have soft launched it on iOS. Lineage2 Revolution will have you playing in real-time with other people, undergoing quests, fighting monsters, teaming up with others for raids, and more. Netmarble is claiming this is the largest open-world game on mobile. It looks pretty impressive thus far, and considering how there seems to be a real craving for MMORPGs on mobile, perhaps this could finally be the one to scratch the itch?..

'Brawl Stars' Bounty, Smash & Grab, Heist, and Showdown Modes Detailed

By now you've probably heard that Supercell is getting ready to bring a new game to mobile called Brawl Stars, and unlike Clash Royale, which for the longest time had pretty much one mode, Brawl Stars will launch with four different modes. The modes are Bounty, Smash & Grab, Heist, and Showdown. Bounty is pretty much team deathmatch where you collect stars by eliminating opponents, and the team with the most stars at the end of the match wins. It remains to be seen though whether you'll always get one star per opponent you take out or whether there will be some kinds of bonuses. Smash & Grab has you collecting crystals from the center of the map, and when you collect 10 crystals and hold onto them, which implies a timer of sorts, you win...

First 'Brawl Stars' Details from Supercell Shown Off

Supercell's Brawl Stars tournament livestream is going on right now – seemingly a prerecorded video being shown off. The first gameplay footage has been revealed. This is a top-down shooter where players are fighting for gem mines, collecting gems and fighting against opponents and working with their teammates in 3-on-3 battles. Collecting gems is the goal, and it's possible to also destroy opponents' gems before the end of the match. Different characters, with traditional types such as melee and ranged, will be available...

There has been a lot of activity around Supercell lately, and while we've seen the likes of Clash of Clans [Free] grow from a cult hit into a cultural phenomenon, many have been wondering what the Finnish developers have been up to since Clash Royale [Free] released in March 2016. Today, it seems like we may finally have an answer. A game titled Brawl Stars has been heavily teased on both Twitter and Reddit, and at 9am PDT an exclusive look is scheduled to be streamed on YouTube, giving a first glimpse of the 3v3 combat action in Supercell's next huge iOS release...
