'Spoiler Alert' is the Reverse Platformer Messing with Your Brain on December 16th

TinyBuild Games and Megafuzz are releasing their PC platformer Spoiler Alert on iOS next Tuesday, December 16th. This one flips the script on the platformer, about as literally as possible. You start off by beating the game, and then go through and play it backwards to the beginning of the game, with auto-running, going backward. Oh, and not only do you have to navigate the platforming sections, you also have to collect all the coins and bop the enemies that were bopped the first time around in order to prevent time paradoxes...

Your Life was Meaningless Until the 'For Eternity - The Game' Entered Your World

I feel like we need to talk about this trailer for this game called For Eternity - The Game, because we can't not talk about it. It's an upcoming game by an electronic artist called Etostone, who's turning the music video from his song "For Eternity" into the most impressive platform RPG game for all mobile devices/tablets. Which ones? All of them, apparently. Just watch the trailer already, and despair at what you life has been before this:..

'WWE Immortals' Coming in 2015 from 'Injustice: Gods Among Us' Creator NetherRealm

A new WWE game is on its way to mobile, and it's coming courtesy of NetherRealm Studios, who are of course known for the Mortal Kombat series, but also for Injustice: Gods Among Us [Free]. The game likely won't be a realistic take on WWE action, based on promises that the game "will feature epic Superstar battles in a fantastically re-imagined WWE world" according to the press release. That's probably a good thing, as NetherRealm is not exactly known for their subtle realism. I mean, have you ever played a Mortal Kombat game? No images of the game are available yet, but I'd imagine something like Injustice but with WWE characters:..

'Papers, Please' Comes to the App Store This Friday

If you haven't played Papers, Please, I don't really blame you as it's a PC/Mac game and this is (obviously) an iOS site. It's a real weird game that's hard to describe. The core of it is the incredibly repetitive task of checking passports in a dystopian future. Things happen though, which I'm really reluctant to spoil on any level, which make the game remarkably interesting...

'Epic Fall' from Developers of 'StoneLoops! of Jurassica' Launches Thursday

One of the games that hasn't quite made its way out onto our list of massive list of New Zealand releases that should be coming out tonight. And it's from a pretty cool developer at MegaBozz, which include veterans of games like Death Worm [$0.99] and the long-lost StoneLoops! of Jurassica. Meet Epic Fall, a game that can be perhaps best described as an endless-faller meets Toast Time [$2.99]. Check out the trailer:..

Illusion Labs have just soft-launched their next game, Rocket Cars, in Canada. This is the first true free-to-play game from the long-time iOS developer, known for their Touchgrind [$4.99] series of games, Labyrinth 2 [$4.99 / Free / $7.99 (HD) / Free (HD)], and more. This is a level-based racing game, where the goal is to finish in first place against several computer cars, doing stunts and picking up boosts to get turbos. It's kind of like Asphalt 8 [Free] in being heavily-focused on boosting, with a major touch of kart racers...

Could 'Corridor Z' Actually be an Original Endless Runner with Zombies?

I still enjoy endless runners, and I still enjoy the occasional zombie game, but it's hard to argue that they're not at least a bit rote at this point. And with Into the Dead [Free] tackling the endless runner with zombies, even that combination is not original at this point. Well, Mass Creation wants to take a shot at still doing something unexpected with the 'endless runner with zombies' genre with their upcoming Corridor Z...

Stoic Studio Announce 'The Banner Saga 2' and Confirm Eventual Mobile Release

Stoic Studio announced today that the follow-up to The Banner Saga [$9.99], their lush, Ragnarok-themed tactical RPG, is coming to all the big non-mobile platforms some time next year. The sequel will be called, unsurprisingly, The Banner Saga 2, and it should start where its predecessor left off: in the beleaguered city of Boersgard, with Bellower's corpse smoking in the cold wind...

Okay, here's a bit of unexpected news: Shanda Games, a Chinese publisher, announced that it's bringing an MMO version of Borderlands to China, with 2K opening up a Chinese studio to help make the game, entitled Borderlands Online. But how is this relevant to you, dear mobile enthusiast, who recalls that there's only really been one attempt at making Borderlands for mobile with Borderlands Legends [$4.99 / $6.99 (HD)] a couple years ago? Well, Shanda Games has announced that this Borderlands Online will be both a PC and mobile game, according to translations of one of the Chinese outlets reporting on the game...

Upcoming 'Docking Sequence' is a Space-Survival Arcade Game from Quantum Sheep

Solo indie developer and sheep enthusiast Quantum Sheep is hard at work on his latest game after Air Supply - SOS [$1.99] released earlier this year, with Docking Sequence. The game is about docking a spaceship with a space station, using a limited amount of fuel, and with an innumerable amount of hazards that pop up. Asteroids, space mines, rotating space stations, black monoliths, and more? All common hazards for you, space cowboy. And your ship has a pesky habit of blowing up a few seconds before running out of fuel, which feels like something that engineering should have sorted out a while ago. Oh, and there's astronauts to save as well, with some levels requiring a certain number of astronauts to provide a successful docking. ..

'Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect' Episodic Series Coming in 2015

The TV show Sons of Anarchy ends its seven season run tonight, but the franchise is continuing on in game form, with the upcoming Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect. This will be an episodic adventure game set in the universe of the show, featuring a new chapter of the Sons of Anarchy motorcycle club in a new location, featuring an original story made just for the game. Details are few and far between beyond that, but expect this one's first episode to hit mobile sometime next year...

'Heroes of Might and Magic 3 HD Edition' Coming to iPad in January

Ubisoft has announced that the classic PC game Heroes of Might and Magic 3: The Restoration of Erathia is making its way to iPad early next year, in a new HD edition, which will release on January 29th, 2015. This turn-based strategy game has players managing their team of heroes as they explore the world, collecting resources, taking over towns, and completing the objectives necessary to win. Enemies are battled on hexagonal grids, with experience being earned for the heroes, with the ability to upgrade their skills to help try and win. The game is being ported over by DotEmu, and features HD visuals, with tons of art assets redone for modern high-resolution graphics...

'Trulon' is an Upcoming RPG from the Creators of 'Rimelands' and 'Trouserheart'

Remember Rimelands: Hammer of Thor [$4.99], the 2010 turn-based RPG published by Crescent Moon Games? Well, Dicework Games, the creators of that game, have merged with Kyy Games, creators of Trouserheart [$2.99], and are together at work on a brand new turn-based RPG with card game elements, called Trulon. The game features a JRPG visual style, but combat is based on using different cards to deal damage, heal, and other RPG-style actions, with 50 different cards in all to deploy in battle...

'Battle Slimes' is an Upcoming Local Multiplayer Arena Battler from the Developer of 'Duke Dashington'

The developer and artist of Duke Dashington [$0.99], a solid pixel-art-based platformer, has a new game in the works with publisher DoDreams called Battle Slimes. This is a local multiplayer action game, where up to 4 players on one screen battle it out as slimes that fire automatically and turn when they hit walls. Players have one control: jumping. The goal is to hit other slimes with the shots, with different objectives including timed play and stock count. Powerups spawn in the center of each arena which can help turn the tide of slimy battle...

'Cerulean Moon' is an Interesting Sliding World Platformer in Development

Nachobeard is a solo developer who last made the rad iPad game Hookball [$0.99 (HD)], which was basically the currently-unavailable Ziggurat with grappling hooks – though I think anything with grappling hooks is rad at some innate levels. I love games with grappling hooks. Sadly, Nacho's next game doesn't involve grappling hooks, but Cerulean Moon looks interesting enough. This is a 2D platformer where the game is controlled by sliding the world along with a finger. Nacho posted a video showing off some of the early gameplay here:..
