Got a Case of the Mondays? '.Decluster Zero' Developer Has the Answer with Upcoming 'Bullet Hell Monday'

Last year, independent Japanese developer Masayuki Ito gave bullet hell shooter fans two heaping helpings of goodness when he first released .Decluster: Into the Bullet Hell [$2.99 / Free] in March, and then about 5 months later released a completely overhauled and remixed version called .Decluster Zero: Bullet Nocturne [$4.99 / Free] in August. We already loved the original release, but we loved the remixed version even more, and to be honest Bullet Nocturne was such an overhaul over the original that they practically felt like to different games, and it's more than worthwhile owning them both. Well after that double shot of shooter goodness in 2015, Ito is finally back with a brand new shooter called Bullet Hell Monday...

'Lunar Battle' Is a City-Builder/Space Shooter by Atari and Is Currently in Soft-Launch

I think it's fair to say that most gamers aren't interested in city builders anymore unless they are doing something new or cool. Atari's upcoming Lunar Battle is trying to do just that by mixing your typical base building with PvE and PvP dogfights reminiscent of old Atari arcade games like Asteroids and Star Raiders. In the city building part of the game, you create your colony by ensuring you produce enough power, food, water, beer, and so on. You can also customize building layouts, which is a clever little touch and should help add a bit more personality to your space city...




Love 'Marble Madness' but Wish It Was on Your Watch? 'Marble Watchness' Might Be for You

Apple Watch gaming is super weird, but developers have figured out all sorts of crazy ways to sort of make these game experiences work on the small screen. Usually that's bite-sized companion style games, not full-blown arcade style games. The upcoming Marble Watchness bucks that trend by attempting to provide Marble Madness style gameplay on the watch, controlled with four tiny buttons:..

'Mafia 3: Rivals' Launching Alongside 'Mafia 3' on Console on October 7th

With Mafia 3 releasing on October 7th, 2K has seen fit to release a mobile tie-in game. And on that same day, you'll be able to check out Mafia 3: Rivals on iOS and Android. Developed by regular 2K mobile shop Cat Daddy, this is a bit different from other Mafia titles. Here, you'll be trying to rule New Bordeaux by recruiting crime bosses from Mafia 3, seizing property, collecting loot, and taking on rival gangs both computer and player controlled in RPG-style combat...

'Zombie King' Gets New Rhyming Trailer

It's always a good sign when a game shows up and multiple people in TouchArcade Towers want to write about it. The perfidious Tasos Lazarides wrote up auto-runner Zombie King last week when it was first revealed, complete with an animated GIF. But lo, the villainous Carter Dotson is here to bring you the new trailer for the game, explaining a bit more about the game. Literally, there's a narrator explaining the concept in rhyme:..

'Harvest' Combines Auto-Running with Farming Sim, Coming in October

Farming sims are nothing new on mobile, but what I like is when a developer blends in some more action-oriented gameplay into the mix. Make you work for those virtual crops, you know? That's what solo developer William Mesilane of Studio Zero hopes to accomplish with his upcoming game Harvest. Originally born from a simple Flash game called Four Second Firestorm Mesilane worked on back in 2006, and then fleshed out in another Flash game called Harvest+ in 2008, Harvest has you running for your life from a combine harvester, collecting fruits and veggies along the way which you can then add to your farm and eventually sell for a profit. Farming ain't easy, and in this case, it's potentially life-threatening...

'Agatha Christie: The A.B.C. Murders' Coming Sept. 29th

Very soon you'll have the chance to step into the shoes of the famous Hercule Poirot, Agatha Christie's portly, Belgian detective. Agatha Christie: The A.B.C. Murders is based on one of Christie's most famous novels, and it has received good reviews on other platforms. Now, we are getting the game on mobile, and I'm excited since Agatha Christie was one of my favorite authors growing up. The game starts with Poirot receiving a mysterious letter from someone who goes by the name A.B.C.. In the letter, A.B.C. announces a murder while challenging Poirot's abilities, something that the very, very arrogant detective is sure to get offended by...

'Fangold: The Eventful Adventures of Land of Britain' is a Card Battling Game that Features an Open World to Explore

Card battling games are all over the place in the App Store, but a card battler that also features an open world to explore? That's something I haven't seen yet, and it's what Potato Killer Studios is promising with their upcoming game Fangold: The Eventful Adventures of Land of Britain. The game was announced all the way back in May of last year, but this week the developers have released the first official gameplay trailer showing the game in action. In addition to building up decks and battling players in PvP and PvE, you can also roam the land to take on quests from characters in the world, gather up items for crafting, and deck out your very own Inn with awards and furniture. Check out the trailer for Fangold...

One Man Left's 'Space Food Truck' Finally Hitting Mobile in October

Oh, how One Man Left had forsaken us for the greener pastures of Steam with Space Food Truck. But much like the prodigal son, the Tilt to Live 2 [$2.99] developers are returning home with Space Food Truck, which will be coming soon to iPad and Android tablets. Yes, only tablets – One Man Left tried to get their "co-op card adventure" working on tiny screens, but it just wasn't working well...

Upcoming 'Drifty Chase' Simplifies Drifting to One Tap

When you think of drifting in video games, you're probably imagining precise feathering of whatever button controls the gas, hitting the button that pulls the hand brake, then delicately wiggling an analog stick to gingerly slide around the corner. What if you could simplify all that into one tap? Well, that's exactly the magic of the latest verby verb to be released, Drifty Chase. Check out the video:..

Fast-Paced Pizza Delivery Platformer 'Ninja Pizza Girl' is Getting Close to Release on iOS

Ninja Pizza Girl is an upcoming platformer from Disparity Games, a family development studio comprised of a husband, wife, and their four daughters. The game has launched on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam, and is heading for release on iOS and Android. You may recall we checked out an early version of the game running on an iPad back at GDC in March, and really liked what we saw. Well, according to the developer's Twitter account, the iOS version is close to completion and currently they're working with Apple to decide the best time to launch the game in the App Store. Which means, hopefully soon! Check out the launch trailer for Ninja Pizza Girl...

Turn-Based RPG 'War of Crown' Is Having an Android Beta Soon

If you are an Android user, you're in luck because War of Crown, Gamevil's and Asone Games' upcoming turn-based strategy RPG, is going to have a closed beta only for Android users from September 28th to October 2nd. The pre-registration period for the beta runs until Sept. 27th, so you still have a week to try and get into the beta. Keep in mind that only players from the US, Korea, and Japan can join. If you manage to get into the beta, you'll get $50 worth of in-game currency that you can use once the game launches globally. Not a bad deal at all...

Card Game 'VEmpire' Coming Along Well, and You Can Play it Online

It's been quite some time since we last talked about VEmpire: The Kings of Darkness, an upcoming deckbuilding game, but the good news is that the game has come a long way since our last story. If you haven't heard of VEmpire before, it's an ambitious deckbuilding card game that is set not in a fantasy or sci-fi world but in what is an interesting take on the historical Habsburg dynasty of the Holy Roman Empire. And I say interesting take because the game is about the Habsburgs coming back as vampires, so as far as I know, not historical...

The Sci-Fi 'Battleship Lonewolf' Is Looking for Beta Testers

I like cool-looking spaceships; maybe it's all that exposure to X-Wings when I was young or that one time I was abducted by aliens. Nevertheless, when I saw Battleship Lonewolf, a sci-fi action strategy game, in our forums, I have to say I liked the way those spaceships looked. Moving beyond the looks, this upcoming game has you commanding a space battleship in tactical battles. In order to survive and further explore the depths of space, you'll have to figure out how to balance your spaceships attack, defense, speed, and so on, all the while upgrading your systems in an effort to overcome the many enemies...

'Super Mario Run' Origins and Android Delay

'Super Mario Run' Origins and Android Delay

September 20th, 2016 5:30 PM EDT by Tasos Lazarides in News, Upcoming Games
Free Buy Now

While the Super Mario Run [Free] announcement came out of the blue for most of us, apparently the game has been in the works even before Nintendo started working on Miitomo [Free]. Apple came knocking on Nintendo's door to inquire how the two could work together, and that's where talks about Super Mario Run came about. After seeing the game during Apple's keynote, we pretty much figured out that it was not a recent development, but it's surprising that no information about that game leaked during all these months. Despite the huge excitement the game has created and despite everyone saying it's going to make crazy money for Nintendo, the company reiterated that it's not going to turn into a mobile company; hardware is still where Nintendo sees itself...

Atypical's 'Infinite Tanks' is Coming "Very Soon", New Trailer Released

Back in March we took a look at Atypical Games' Infinite Tanks, an upcoming tank-battling game with an interesting card-based customization system that would let you create millions of different combinations of tanks. The game was just in beta during that time, but it still looked quite impressive, and besides the extensive tank customization aspect it also promised robust content for both single-player and multiplayer gaming. Today Atypical has announced that Infinite Tanks is coming "very soon" to iOS, macOS, and tvOS, and they've released this brand new trailer...

'Yo to the Yo' is a Casual Yo-Yo Launching Game with Great Pixel Art and Chiptunes

Purple Pwny Studios is working on Yo to the Yo, a casual game with some slick art and music that's set to hit mobile. The goal seems to be to launch yo-yos into space, trying to hit switches and targets as you go by, getting into space and even further, possibly? Plus, you can customize your yo-yo to be other non-yo-yo-like objects. Such as, pizza. Launch pizzas into the sky, get your Walter White on...

'MAXIMUM CAR' Gets a MAXIMUM New Trailer and is Releasing on October 5th

Back in February, Fist of Awesome [$3.99] developer Nicoll Hunt's studio I Fight Bears announced a collaborative project with developer tea&cheese called MAXIMUM CAR, a racing game with retro inspiration and huge explosions. Think of it as Horizon Chase [Free] meets Burnout. That initial teaser video and the developers' previous works had me very excited for MAXIMUM CAR, and the fact that the title is always spelled out in capital letters let me know that they meant business. Well, the wait is almost over for MAXIMUM CAR as today they've announced a launch date of October 5th along with releasing this brand new trailer...

Apart from the revolutionary and platform defining success that is Hodappy Bird [Free], not much came out of the whole Flappy Bird phase, aside from an abundance of low-effort clones. Flappy Golf [Free] was the exception to the rule, however, as the combination of the simplistic flapping mechanics of the aforementioned high-scoring hit with the excellent golfing gameplay of Super Stickman Golf 2 [Free], Noodlecake Studios managed to create a title that transcended its intended purpose as a parody into a fantastic game in its own right. As a result, you can forgive me for being extremely excited for the sequel, as Flappy Golf 2 promises to offer even more courses to fly your sentient ball through - however, Noodlecake have announced that the game is to be sadly delayed for a 'few weeks', and therefore missing its original Wednesday release date, to make it an even better golf flapping experience...

'Mikey Jumps' is a Mashup of the 'Mikey Shorts' Trilogy Arriving Next Month

For the first time in more than two years, our old pal Mikey is heading back to the App Store. Mikey Jumps is a brand new entry from developer BeaverTap Games but it pulls elements from all three previous games in the Mikey Trilogy. With "simple one-touch controls" you'll run and jump in classic Mikey Shorts [$1.99] fashion, hook and swing in Mikey Hooks [$1.99] fashion, and rocketboot yourself around in Mikey Boots [$1.99] fashion, all in the same game! Though we haven't seen any in-game screens or footage, it sounds like Mikey Jumps will be of the auto-runner variety based on its description. You can, however, feast your eyes on this very colorful promotional image below. Oooohhhh, shiny!..
