'Random Heroes 3' Coming this Thursday, Here's the Official Launch Trailer

Back in early September, Ravenous Games announced Random Heroes 3, the third and final entry in their Random Heroes saga of action platformers. At that time it sounded like the game was pretty close to completion, and apparently that was the case as Ravenous has announced in our forums that Random Heroes 3 is already approved and ready to launch this week on November 13th. Here's the official launch trailer...

Nimblebit's 'Golfinity' Launching this Thursday

Just a few weeks ago, Nimblebit teased us with an announcement for a new game called Golfinity, which looked decidedly different from what we've come to expect from the developer. Golfinity is a simple, clean, endless mini-golfing game, and Nimblebit themselves describe it as "the baby of Desert Golfing [$1.99] and Monument Valley [$1.99]. Now that is a wacky mashup I can get behind. Today, Nimblebit has announced that Golfinity is set to launch this week on November 13th...

'Spirit Sweeper' Will Take Minesweeper Multiplayer?!

Ah, Minesweeper, the game that is only second to Solitaire in terms of ruined productivity among Windows users. Now, Latis Global and Wipsoft are going to try and take this classic game and make it multiplayer with Spirit Sweeper, coming this week. The objective is a bit different than traditional Minesweeper, as the goal is to actually try and uncover the 'mines', as they are actually spirit stones, which must be colleccted in order to win. Finding a stone continues the turn, making strategic runs possible. The first player to uncover 10 stones wins. This video of the tutorial should help explain how it works...

'Tony Hawk's Shred Session' Postponed Indefinitely, New Console and Mobile 'Tony Hawk' Game Coming in 2015

Earlier this year, I sat down with Tony Hawk himself to hear about his new mobile game, Tony Hawk's Shred Session at his HQ in San Marcos, CA. At the time, the game was near release, and it was a big deal to get it in the hands of mobile games media to start the high profile game launch process. I was even able to get some video of Tony walking me through the game:..

Watch the "Super Sexy" 'Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition' Cutscene Apple Deemed Too Hot for the App Store!

If you're thinking that's a ridiculous headline, then yes, you are correct. We're just having a little fun with what we think is a pretty ridiculous situation. To back things up a bit first, in early September developer Beamdog announced that they would be bringing an enhanced edition of the classic RPG Icewind Dale, which was released on PC and Mac back in 2000, to mobile devices. However, while the Android version launched last week and is currently available as planned, the iOS version ended up getting held up in Apple approval and has yet to launch. ..

Mobile MOBA 'Vainglory' Launching in North America on Tuesday November 18th

Vainglory, the upcoming mobile MOBA from developer Super Evil Mega Corp, finally has a release date, the studio announced on its blog today. It's staggered across regions, so those of you in Europe will be seeing the game go live next week on Thursday, November 13th. Us here in North America, as well as those in South America, the Middle East and Africa will have to wait just a wee bit longer, as the game will be launching in those regions the following Tuesday November 18th. Finally, if you're in Japan, Korea or China I'm afraid I've got some bad news: The team will be working on additional localizations so Vainglory won't launch in those regions until an unspecified date in the future...

'Need for Speed: No Limits' is Coming to Mobile, Possible Gymkhana Focus?

Looks like EA let slip that there's a new Need for Speed game coming to mobile, called Need for Speed: No Limits. So, rally driver Ken Block showed off his new car, a four wheel drive 1965 Ford Mustang modified for his upcoming "Gymkhana 7" video. Now, on the front of the car, there's a logo for a Need for Speed: No Limits, which others saw and wondered if it was the next main game in the Need for Speed franchise. Upon finding out about this, EA has confirmed that it's an upcoming mobile game. Good news, perhaps, for mobile gamers, and bad news for console fans of the franchise as the next game has yet to be announced quite yet...

Check Out These Screenshots of 'Battlefield 4' Running on iOS

Early last year we posted about EA's intentions to bring the Frostbite engine to iOS. This summer saw the announcement of Metal, which allows developers low-level access to the GPU and CPU of iOS devices which only has served to make these things more possible...

Dual-Stick Shooter 'The Hunted' Submitted to Apple, New Animated .Gifs Released!

Just about a month ago, developer F5 Games unveiled their next upcoming game, a multiplayer-focused dual-stick shooter called The Hunted. Dual-stick shooters are common on the App Store, but what really made The Hunted stand out was its use of lighting and shadows to create a moody atmosphere in the game. It wasn't just a slick visual effect though, as opponents could actually use the shadows as cover from other players. Well if you were stoked for The Hunted then F5 has good news. As they've announced in our forums, The Hunted has been submitted to Apple for approval, and they expect to release the game this month. Best of all, their latest blog post on the game is stuffed with new animated .gifs. Woohoo!..

'Proun+' Preview: The PC Tunnel Racer Finds a Home on Mobile

There are some games where the question has to be asked: why wasn't this on iOS sooner? Joost Van Dongen's Proun+ is one of those games. Releasing on November 27th for $3.99, ported by Engine Software, it's a game that really feels like it's finally home on iPhones and iPads. The PC version is remembered as a particularly notable entry in the tunnel racing genre, and it feels like it's reaching its intended destination on iOS, where games like Unpossible [$1.99] and Synesthetic [$2.99] have followed in its footsteps, wittingly or not...

'Day of the Viking' is Adult Swim Games' Latest Title, Releasing Thursday

Adult Swim Games' latest title is coming out on Thursday, Day of the Viking. Developed by Vorax Studios, this is a castle defense game that has a touch of fast-paced action to it. Vikings are invading, because that's just what they do. Players must fire of a barrage of arrows, with a rock catapult to help fend off large waves of enemies. Coins get dropped while playing, with a particular challenge to try and collect them, as there's a coin collector unit that is scared off by enemy contact, so getting coins far away from the castle will require some smart shooting. There's a number of different level layouts, so levels on a hilltop? Ready them rocks...

Check out the Trailer for 'Subterfuge' from the Creators of 'World of Goo' and 'Flower Garden'

Ron Carmel of 2D Boy, who helped make World of Goo [$4.99] and Little Inferno [$4.99], is working with Noel Llopis of Flower Garden [$2.99 / Free] and Casey's Contraptions fame (before that game became Rovio's Amazing Alex [$0.99 / $2.99 (HD)]) on Subterfuge, a curious multiplayer strategy game that's played over a week time period with other players. The team just released their first trailer showing off some of the gameplay but trying to encapsulate what they're hoping the experience will be...

'Drop Wizard' is The Next Game From The Creators of 'Lost Yeti'

Remember the super simple yet unbelievably cute ice block sliding puzzler Lost Yeti [$1.99]? If you've got no idea what I'm talking about, head to our Lost Yeti review and bask in the glory that is getting a yeti from one side of the screen to the other. The point is, Lost Yeti was a great game, and that same crew of guys is hard at work on their just-announced next game, Drop Wizard...

Realistic Submarine Simulator 'Silent Depth' is Still in Development

One of the things I love about our upcoming games forum is when a developer posts an early look at a game they're making and then sticks with the thread throughout the game's development cycle. Often this provides some really interesting insight into how an iOS game changes from its early concept stages to its final release. The down side of all this is it's real easy to get excited about a game only to have it just fall off the map entirely...

'Taekwondo Game Global Tournament' Soft Launches in Canada and Sweden

Eagle-eyed forum members spotted the soft launch of Taekwondo Game Global Tournament, which seems like a surprisingly slick fighting game which focuses on staying true to both the taekwondo fighting style as well as the both the rules and scoring system used when sparring in a tournament environment...
