'Super Stickman Golf 3' Launches Thursday; What is the Game's Premium Mode?

You need one final reminder, as you'll want to pay attention to this game: Super Stickman Golf 3 launches on Thursday, July 7th. Noodlecake is in North American time zones, so expect this one late on Wednesday night/Thursday morning, not necessarily super-early . Though App Store releases are often really weird, so it could pop up at any random point in the near future. But just a heads up on that. If you need to know a bit more about this one, check out our preview coverage and watch our lengthy Mobcrush stream that discusses a bunch of aspects of the game with Noodlecake's Ryan Holowaty, that wound up split into part 1 and part 2...

Solitaire games continues to be very popular on iOS, though personally I don't always find them that exciting to play. The developer of the upcoming Politaire might be sharing my view since he hopes to spice up Solitaire by adding some Poker in it. The goal of the game is to make a winning hand with 5 active cards in your hand, and the developer claims there's plenty of depth in the game mechanics to keep you playing. The game does have a clean, simple visual style, and it looks like a fun, quick game to play with one hand while standing in a line somewhere...




Fantasy Strategy Game 'Rising Warriors' Coming out of Soft Launch July 7th

A few months back I wrote about Rising Warriors, a fantasy strategy games whose main talking point is its 80 v 80 battles. The game has been in soft launch since then, but if you've been waiting to play it, you don't have long to wait since Rising Warriors will officially release worldwide this Thursday, July 7th. The game has you fighting against the Black Knight, and to that purpose, you build an empire, battle to control various resources across a huge map to upgrade your base by building various defense systems, and so on...

The Popular FPS 'Critical Ops' Has Just Launched in 130 Countries, But No US Launch Yet

If you like first-person shooters, you've probably heard - or maybe even tried - Critical Ops, the popular mobile shooter that plays a lot like Counter-Strike. The game has been out in Canada for a few weeks now, but today the developer announced that the game has launched in more than 130 countries. According to the announcement, you can download the game in most countries of the world, but interestingly enough, you can't get the game in the US yet. Of course, if you are in the US and have a second App Store account anywhere in the world, the chances are you can download the game today. If you don't know how to do that, you can follow our guide and make a second App Store account...

'Skullgirls' Mobile Adaptation Enters Beta Test, Releasing Later This Year

Hidden Variable Studios and Autumn Games are bringing fighting game Skullgirls in a free-to-play mobile version, as announced at Anime Expo 2016 in Los Anageles. A straightforward mobile release would be...challenging, to say the least, so the plan is for the game to tackle more of the Injustice [Free] model of creating teams and sending them into battle against opponents' teams. The game will of course feature the fantastic 2D, classic-cartoon-inspired artwork and animation that the fighting game is well known for, as the trailer shows off:..

Vehicular Zombie Survival Game 'Dead Venture' Launching July 7th, New Trailer Released

More vehicular combat-related news coming out today, as Dogbyte Games have announced that their zombie-survival-driving game Dead Venture, which we first talked about a few weeks ago, is all set to launch next Thursday, July 7th. Dead Venture is an isometric game where you'll drive around running over hordes of zombies trying to collect your fellow human survivors and make your way to a military base safe haven. There's a brand new launch trailer to accompany the release date announcement, check it out...

Turn-Based Car Combat Strategy Game 'Auto Warriors' Coming July 7th

A few weeks back, we posted about Auto Warriors, an upcoming car combat game that was taking the interesting route of being a turn-based strategy game. Auto Warriors was in soft-launch at that time, and early feedback in our forums about the game was quite positive. Today developer Gunjin Games has announced that Auto Warriors is primed and ready for global launch, and will be officially released next Thursday, July 7th. Here's the game's trailer again in case you missed it before...

Nexon Korea Unveils 'Project Dynasty Warriors' Coming to iOS and Android in Late 2016

It's about 10am here in the Pacific time zone, which means it's about 2am in Japan. Which means I can't wake up Shaun Musgrave to explain all this Dynasty Warriors stuff to me. So bear with me, folks. Anyway, Nexon Korea has just announced a new Dynasty Warriors mobile game, tentatively titled Project Dynasty Warriors, that's coming to iOS and Android in late 2016. It's based of the Dynasty Warriors 8 console title, and will feature "an enhanced collection element and a host of unique characters to choose from, along with the seamless gameplay mechanics and graphics of the console version, for players to dominate the battlefield." Check out the awesome trailer...

Mi-Clos Studio's Interactive Graphic Novel 'Out There Chronicles' Is Looking Great

We've been enjoying Mi-Clos Studio's Out There [$4.99] - and all its sequels/expansions - over at TouchArcade tower, so we are always glad to hear there's more coming out of the French studio. A few months back, we wrote about Out There Chronicles, an upcoming interactive fiction game that will expand upon the lore of Out There. At the time, that was all the info we had, but Mi-Clos has been offering more info recently, and the game is definitely looking intriguing...

Turn-Based Strategy Game 'Battlefleet Gothic: Leviathan' Releases Next Thursday

For all you Warhammer and strategy game fans out there, the wait is over. Battlefleet Gothic: Leviathan, the turn-based strategy game based on the Battlefleet Gothic tabletop miniatures game, releases next Thursday, and personally I can't wait to play it. The game tries to be as faithful a digital port of the tabletop game as possible and hopes to bring to your phone and tablet the joy of blowing up your opponent again and again. The game takes place during the Shield of Baal campaign and has you playing as Imperial Navy, Blood Angels Space Marines, and Tyranid Hive fleets, with more playable races coming to the game soon...

Slitherine's 'Gettysburg: The Tide Turns' Goes Into PC Beta Soon, iOS to Come Later

One of my favorite iOS wargames is Shenandoah Studio's Battle of the Bulge [$9.99], so I've always kept an ear out for any game that has anything to do with that company. Unfortunately, as you might already know, after releasing some really good wargames, Shenadoah went bankrupt (for reasons that aren't totally clear) and Slitherine decided to acquire the studio. What that meant is that Slitherine also inherited the kickstarted Gettysburg: The Tide Turns, which has been in development for too many years. Recently we wrote how Slitherine had given us Q3 2016 release window for Gettysburg, and if we go by the company's announcement of the game going into beta testing for the PC imminently, the release shouldn't be too far off...

'Golem Rage' Lets You Bulldoze Through Beautiful Environments This September

The ease of development for iOS devices may mean the ecosystem is oversaturated with a lot of clones and games not worth your time, however it is also the perfect opportunity for any aspiring developers to throw their hat into the industry. With this comes the stories of sudden, surprise success such as Flappy Bird, but also many tales of hardship and difficult development periods. Golem Rage, by a mix of young French and Belgian graduates who have decided to take the plunge into making games, is another with a rather fraught past. Despite this, the developers are adamant the lessons learnt from the turbulent past will only make the end product even stronger, and it certainly does look impressive from the initial screenshots...

Frantic Arcade Game 'Tap Hero' is Looking for Beta Testers in Our Forums

Back in April, a new game called Tap Hero was announced on our forums, and as the name alludes to, it's a frantic tapping game where you play as a character defending yourself from enemies approaching from both sides of the screen. What really stuck out about Tap Hero is its wonderful pixel art and animations, something you can get an idea of by checking out the sweet animated .gifs below...

Check Out the Trailer for 'Bomboras Forever', a Stylish 'Defender'-inspired Shooter Coming July 9th

Hit 1981 arcade game Defender is the grandaddy of horizontal scrolling shooters, and was one of my favorites when I was a kid. It sounds rather quaint nowadays, but there was something so freeing about being able to switch directions and chase down enemies in the "open world" levels, and the Asteroids-like inertial movement only added to the fun. Ah yes, Defender, how I love thee. Well, I get the impression that indie developer Jeff Taniguchi was a bit of a Defender-head himself, as his forthcoming iOS game Bomboras Forever has a lot in common with that classic. Check out the trailer...

'Cat Quest' is a Promising Action-RPG from the Developers of 'Slashy Hero'

The Gentlebros is the studio that brought you the fun Halloween-themed action-RPG, Slashy Hero [Free], which Kongregate wound up publishing last year. The ex-Koei-Tecmo developers aren't resting on their laurels, as they're hard at work on a brand new game, Cat Quest. You play as a customizable hero adventurer cat, exploring the world, fightnig enemies, and explring various caves nad dugneons for loot. Check out the trailer, and see how many cat puns you can spy:..

'Quell Zen' is the Latest in Fallen Tree Games' Popular Puzzle Series

Fallen Tree Games is set to introduce the latest in their popular series of Quell games, with Quell Zen. A followup to 2015's Quell Memento [$2.99], this game where you slide a ball around puzzle mazes, using walls and endless looping walls to help solve the tricky puzzles ahead of you, this will feature plenty of new mechanics to puzzle you, which you can sample in the new trailer:..

Kabam Is on Track to Release an 'Avatar' Movie Tie-In Game With One of the Largest Budgets in Mobile Gaming History

Remember Avatar? That movie with the weird jungle planet filled with blue skinned humanoids getting rampaged by humans that for some reason did obscenely well at the box office? Well, they're not only making four more sequels (WTF) but they've also teamed up with Kabam to make a massive budget mobile game which will be updated and evolve along with the release of the upcoming Avatar sequels- The last of which is scheduled to be released in 2023...

'Fancy Cats' Lets You Dress up Felines This Thursday on the App Store

It is an unequivocal law of the universe that anything is better with cats. This is especially true on the App Store - whether it's the adorable yet dangerously compelling Neko Atsume [Free], or a more high-octane adventure like Cat Puncher [$0.99], our feline friends make up a core component of mobile gaming. While it may involve no brawling, Fancy Cats from All 4 Games and Genix Labs attempts to merge the dark art of animal cosplay with pet simulation and match three mechanics to produce, at the very least, an incessantly endearing app for any cat lovers out there, and is out this Thursday on the App Store...

'Combo Quest 2' Features More Heroes and Combo Meter Action This Week

Tapinator has published a couple of really cool games from Boarding Party Games in Combo Quest [Free] and Dice Mage [Free], each showing some cool pixel art with interesting game ideas. Now, the publisher-developer combo is set to return to their first game with Combo Quest 2, and the first trailer is looking combo-ier and quest-ier. Sadly, they didn't call it 2 Combo 2 Quest like I want all appropriate sequels to be called, in the vein of 2 Fast 2 Furious...

'The Little Fox' Finally Combines Auto-Runner Gameplay with Hex Grids

For far too long, fans of stylish-yet-cute games have had to trade their love of easy-to-learn, difficult-to-master games with the fact that they aren't real games. You see, many of these games don't have hex grids, so they're not real games. So disappointing. But every so often, you get a game that is both casual-friendly but also a real game. Like, Oddhop [$1.99] is a pretty fun little game that's got hex grids. But they are too few! The Little Fox puports to do just this: be a cute and appealing game that's an auto-runner while also using hex grids, what?!..
