Sega's Bringing 'Chain Chronicle' from Japan in December

Sega and Japanese studio gumi are teaming up to release the free-to-play Chain Chronicle on December 8th worldwide. This is a real-time strategy game where players will command their team of heroes, trying to protct their base from oncoming enemy forces. The game takes place in a 6x3 grid, though movement isn't necessarily rigid in moving from tile to tile, but smart play will be necessary to succeed and progress. There's over 150 different characters, comprising soldier, archer, knight, cleric, and wizard classes. The game boasts character artwork and voice acting from the anime and manga scene in Japan...

There's a Duck Dynasty Tower Defense Game Coming Out Tomorrow

I'll be the first to admit I just don't get the appeal of Duck Dynasty. If you've never seen an episode on TV, you might assume it's about the science behind and the craftsmanship of duck calls, which is about 0.1% true. It's actually one of those pseudo-reality shows with a bunch of people always doing pretty crazy things… Of course, this doesn't stop Duck Dynasty from being immensely popular. This popularity has lead to a ridiculous amount of merchandising, and now, the tower defense game Duck Commander: Duck Defense-..

'Kingdom Rush Origins' Launching November 20th, New Trailer Released

We learned back in August that Ironhide Game Studio was working on a new Kingdom Rush game, and in October we learned what that new game was called: Kingdom Rush Origins. Today Ironhide has revealed when we'll be able to play the new game, and good news: it's really soon. Like, next week soon. November 20th, to be exact. To celebrate the impending launch, Ironhide has released a brand new trailer showing Kingdom Rush Origins in action. Check it out...

Colorful Platformer 'Huey' Out Now on Android, Coming to iOS Soon

Mobile gaming is no stranger to the throwback, pixel art platformer, and soon there will be one more to add to the pile with the upcoming Huey from developer Fragment Two. As the developer has explained in our forums, Huey is a "classic 2D platform game combined with puzzle elements" and will feature more than 30 levels of platforming across 5 different worlds. You can see all this in action with the official trailer for Huey below...

FDG Entertainment's Tower Defense RPG 'Crystal Siege' Hits iPad This Week

FDG Entertainment's Crystal Siege has been in the works for a long while now, and iPad owners are going to get their hands on it very soon: this Thursday, November 13th, to be exact! The tower defense and RPG hybrid will release for $4.99 as an iPad exclusive, though release for iPhone is planned in 2015. Players will try to stop wave after wave of oncoming enemies, using various towers, abilities, and environmental traps to help take out the invading creeps. There will be a player character that can be controlled around the battlefield to help fight enemies, with a number of things to buy to help make the tower defending more effective...

Telltale's 'Game of Thrones' First Episode Teased for This Year

Telltale Games promised that their series based on Game of Thrones would still be coming this year despite details being otherwise sparse. Well, good news: Telltale's just let loose a little teaser for the upcoming series recently on Twitter. We know that the first episode will be called "Iron From Ice" and that it will be one of six episodes in the series. Telltale usually traffics in five-episode series, so this promises to be bigger than their normal releases, which makes sense since there's a lot of source material to crib from...

'Sproggiwood' Preview - The Roguelike for the Rest of Us

Freehold Games' Sproggiwood is a turn-based roguelike that mobile gamers should anticipate. Where many games in the genre use its conventions to be extremely difficult, Sproggiwood tries to be a lot more forgiving for the person who isn't a die-hard and just wants to enjoy the gameplay of the genre without being punished each time, as the game features persistent equipment upgrades and a world-based structure that encourages shorter play sessions and progression without having to survive intensely-long runs...

App Store Classic 'Space Miner' Getting a Modern Update, Sequel Still in the Works Too

I've mentioned this before, but I have a list of games that I'd do practically anything to have them be updated for modern screen sizes and iOS versions. There have been a lot of amazing games released on iOS in its fairly short history, but not all of them are in a position to be continuously updated to keep up with new iOS software and hardware. Some of those games aren't even available anymore, probably for that very reason. One of the games that was very high up on my update wish list is Venan Entertainment's Space Miner: Space Ore Bust [$2.99 / $4.99 (HD)]. Well, I'm very happy to say that Venan has posted in our forums that an update is in the works for Space Miner that will bring support for all the different iOS screen sizes as well as iOS 8...

'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

Nimblebit's 'Golfinity' Launching this Thursday

November 10th, 2014 12:34 PM EST by Jared Nelson in News, Upcoming Games
Free Buy Now

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...
