Real-Time Multiplayer 'Crash of Cars' Releasing Globally Soon

The upcoming Crash of Cars is looking to combine .io-style real-time multiplayer with the joy of smashing other people's cars. As you can see from the trailer below, your one and only goal is to go around smashing everyone else's cars and taking any crowns they drop; pretty much like all .io games. The game has 4 playable maps, ranging from a park to an actual Moon, dozens of vehicles to unlock, and plenty of upgradeable power-ups that should facilitate your career of destruction...

Puzzle Strategy Hybrid 'Ticket to Earth' Riding to the App Store on March 15th

Almost exactly a year ago to this day, we first experienced Robot Circus's interesting puzzle and turn-based strategy mash up Ticket to Earth at GDC 2016, and while the game was still in a relatively early stage, the promise of this unique amalgamation of mechanics was clear to see. While its tentative release date of late 2016 came and went, a later showing at PAX Australia in November got us particularly excited after a substantial year of development under its belt. After much fervent anticipation, Ticket to Earth is finally launching this Wednesday, and has a brand new release trailer that showcases the inventive gameplay elements and futuristic sci-fi setting in action...




Telltale Spills More Details on 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Series

Telltale has officially started spilling the beans on Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, and the more I hear about the game, the more I can't wait to play it. In a recent interview, Sean Ainsworth, the game's Creative Lead, talked about how players will primarily play as Star-Lord, but there will be moments when you get to play the other characters (can't wait for Groot's dialogue options). You'll also get to forge relationships with the other Guardians, and I wonder how easy it will be to pretty much irritate all of them. You'll also get to explore the Milano since it will be the main vehicle you'll use throughout the game...

'Albion Online' Galahad Trailer Shows a Ton of Improvements and New Content

Albion Online is looking really good in its latest trailer, and I hope we get the game on mobile soon after it launches on PC in July. The trailer for the Galahad update shows off a new UI that should make the game easier to play, especially on tablet screens. Also, we can see the new landscape and biome cities introduced to the game and see how big the game world is. There are also new PvE expeditions, which are short encounters for one or more players. The update also brings improved visuals, more spells, and a ton more improvements, and it's finally looking like the game is in the final stretch...

Harmonix's 'Dropmix' Is a Physical Music Card Game That Uses Your Mobile Devices

Harmonix changed the gaming industry a few years back when it brought to us all those fake, plastic instruments and games like Rock Band, and now it's hoping to revive the genre but with a very different offering. The upcoming Dropmix uses physical cards on a physical board of sorts and uses your iOS or Android device (through a free app) to play the music you'll create in real time. The way it plays is every card represents a different part of the song's arrangement - could be vocals, bass, drums, etc - and as you play a card on the board, you can hear the custom mix of the current song change in real-time. You earn points by playing cards, and the first player to reach 21 points wins...

Square Enix's 'Flame Vs Blaze' MOBA Coming to the West This Year

Did you know that Square Enix has a mobile MOBA called Flame Vs Blaze, and it's actually supposed to be really good? Well, not many in the West did know that because Flame Vs Blaze has been a Japan exclusive, but it looks like the game is going to be coming our way in 2017. This 3v3 MOBA has quite the team behind it, including Producer Hironori Okayama (Kingdom Hearts Unchained x), Director Yuji Abe (Final Fantasy XIII series) and character designer Gen Kobayashi (The World Ends With You). Great team, isn't it?..

'Transformers: Forged to Fight' Looks Great in New PAX East Trailer

Fighting games on mobile are few and relatively far between (and not all of them fun if you aks me), but Transformers: Forged to Fight, by Hasbro and Kabam, looks like it's going to hit it out of the park. As you can see in the new trailer from PAX East, there are a ton of fun Transformers to play as or against, each with his own crazy abilities that should make the fights varied and entertaining and make picking a team fun. The trailer also shows the ways you'll be protecting your base from other players and, more importantly, some lovely Dinobots, which were my favorites growing up...

Help Beta Test 'Bike Club', a Game About Building Bikes and Shooting Stuff

Set Snail has announced an interesting game called Bike Club, and they need beta testers for it. This looks off the bat like another physics biking game, albeit with some cool two-dimensional artwork, and that'd be fine! Physics racers are still a fun genre. But how about if you had to bike on homemade contraptions...and shoot targets in the air at the same time? While riding clearly makeshift bicycline contraptions? Yes, yes, that is the good stuff. Just like the American dream, though Set Snail is Danish, so maybe it's the Danish dream? And I didn't even mention the chickens...

'Nonstop Chuck Norris' is 'Nonstop Knight' but With Chuck Norris

I can remember a simpler time on the internet when Chuck Norris facts were the meme comedy of the day. Those were simpler times. In 2017, everything's gone crazy. Maybe the thing to right the ship is the return of unstoppable force of nature, Chuck Norris. Well, Flaregames is about to deliver that to the world in a new mobile game, Nonstop Chuck Norris. Check out the first teaser trailer below for the game ahead of its April release:..

'Suzy Cube' Gets its First Trailer

'Suzy Cube' Gets its First Trailer

March 10th, 2017 10:00 AM EDT by Eli Hodapp in Upcoming Games

We've been covering Northern Bytes' Suzy Cube for quite literally years now and for good reason: The game in its current in-development state is the best 3D platformer we've played on iOS. While there's certainly no shortage of games with 3D platforming mechanics on the App Store, I've typically found them to be unplayably clunky, both in how you control your character as well as how you control the camera. That's not the case with Suzy Cube, at all, to an extent that's just sort of crazy. Take a look at the trailer:..

'Meganoid' 2017 Revamp from Orangepixel Releases on March 30th

The Meganoid 2017 remake news cycle is moving swift, like a puma. We've gone from the game being announced, to the game being deep in development, to a release date announcement in just a few weeks! Wow! Yes, Meganoid's big 2017 bigger and better than ever reboot is set to release on March 30th. That's a Thursday, none of these wonky release days. Orangepixel is here to give you games, when you expect them...though sooner than you may be thinking if you thought "I was looking forward to playing Meganoid a lot later this year!" Nope, Q1 2017! Check out the new release trailer with goofy voiceover:..

'Steven Universe: Save the Light' RPG Announced, Not for Mobile...Yet?

A wise philosopher once stated about a potential new game from Grumpyface, the studio behind a bunch of genuinely good Cartoon Network games and some Adult Swim originals: "NEW STEVEN UNIVERSE RPG OR WE RIOT." Well, said philosopher's monkey paw wish came true, as Steven Universe: Save the Light was announced today on March 9th. The problem is that it was announced for unspecified consoles. Maybe that'll include the Switch, and possibly PC, but for now, mobile players are out of luck. A Cartoon Network representative said "we'll see what happens" about a mobile version after the console ones release, so don't give up hope yet!..

'Guns and Spurs' Open-World Western Hits Mobile on March 25th

Sakis25 Games has been working away at Guns and Spurs, an open-world western, for a while now. But the good news is that the game is finally set to hit mobile on March 25th. The iOS version will be $1.99, and the Android version will be free with ads and an IAP to remove the ads. This is a 'remasteered' version of a game by the same name from 2010, made to modern standards and for mobile devices...

'Orphan Black: The Game' Is Coming March 23rd, Get Ready to Play as Your Favorite Clone

Orphan Black is one of my favorite shows, to a large degree because of Tatiana Maslany's amazing acting, and now we're getting an official tie-in game called, appropriately, Orphan Black: The Game. As you can see from the teaser trailer, the game looks like an isometric adventure game and is faithfully replicating many scenes from the show. There are also puzzle-like moments that remind me a lot of Square Enix's GO games. The game is developed by the television studio that produces the actual show, so expect fidelity. According to a recent interview, one of the challenges the developers had was retelling the show's story without turning it into a Telltale game...

We Have More Info on 'Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series'

As you probably know by now, the Marvel IP Telltale has been working on is Guardians of the Galaxy, and after getting a short teaser and no details, we got to hear a bit more about the series today. The series will be a brand new story and starts with the Guardians discovering an artifact of unspeakable power (probably a Baby Groot dancing toy). Each of the Guardians has his or her own reason for desiring the relic, and there's also an enemy - the last of her kind - who wants to get her hands on that relic. The story will take us from Earth to the Milano to Knowhere, and, of course, will be accompanied by the awesome soundtrack Guardians is known for...

'Typeshift' Is the Puzzle Game Zach Gage Has Been Teasing, It's Coming Next Week

We've been following mysterious teasers from game design mastermind Zach Gage all week now, the latest was posted just moments ago and once solved reveals that these teasers are a clever trailer for the game Typeshift, which is due out March 18th. (What's with games coming out on such strange days lately?) Zach's SpellTower [$2.99] is easily my most played word game on the App Store, so I've got no doubts that Typeshift won't be just as sticky...

'The Elder Scrolls: Legends' Hits the iPad on March 23rd, Android Tablets on April 4th

If you're tired of Hearthstone, or are just looking for another collectable card game in your life, The Elder Scrolls: Legends has been in beta for ... what feels like forever now. Well, per a post by Bethesda a few moments ago, the game is now officially launched on PC and will be released on the iPad on March 23rd. An Android tablet release will follow on April 4th. Just like the release of Hearthstone, the smaller-screen smartphone is delayed a bit more, and currently Bethesda is aiming for a June release for that...

Check Out the Official Trailer for 'The Big Journey' Ahead of Its Release Next Week

One of the games we were shown during GDC that made a pretty big impression on us was The Big Journey from Catfishbox and Armor Games Studio. Yes, the game stars an adorable squishy cat, so OF COURSE I was a big fan of it right off the bat, but beyond that this just looks like one of the most polished platforming games we've seen in some time. It also uses a tilting control mechanic that gave us Rolando vibes, and the squishiness of the cat and its ability to grow larger by gobbling up delicious dumplings also gave us some Leo's Fortune [$4.99] vibes. Basically, lots of vibes from lots of amazing games means we're pretty excited for The Big Journey. Ahead of its launch next week, Armor has sent along the game's official launch trailer, which is well worth watching with the sound cranked up...

NimbleBit to Release 'Bit City' on March 13th

Are you ready for some Bit City? Well, I hope so, because you're gonna get it quite soon. NimbleBit has announced a Monday, March 13th release for Bit City. NimbleBit is expanding from just building towers, death-laser-equipped space stations (rest in power, Tiny Death Star), and transportation networks, and now has you building a whole dang city for yourself. The classy Eric Ford has a preview of the game that will tell you everything you need to know...

'Stronghold Kingdoms' Has Soft Launched in Australia

A few days ago, we posted a GDC video of the upcoming Stronghold Kingdoms, and now the game has soft-launched in Australia, so here's your chance to check it out yourself. The game is an MMO version of the classic Stronghold series, so expect more of a Clash of Clans kind of game than the traditional castle-building gameplay of Stronghold. In the game, you get to build an online stronghold with strong defenses to protect it from other players while also besieging other players' castles. You can - of course - trade with factions and do all the other usual fare of games like this one...
