Netmarble's 'Lineage2 Revolution' MMORPG Soft Launched

Netmarble is working on an open-world mobile action-RPG in the Lineage series for mobile, and have soft launched it on iOS. Lineage2 Revolution will have you playing in real-time with other people, undergoing quests, fighting monsters, teaming up with others for raids, and more. Netmarble is claiming this is the largest open-world game on mobile. It looks pretty impressive thus far, and considering how there seems to be a real craving for MMORPGs on mobile, perhaps this could finally be the one to scratch the itch?..

'Brawl Stars' Bounty, Smash & Grab, Heist, and Showdown Modes Detailed

By now you've probably heard that Supercell is getting ready to bring a new game to mobile called Brawl Stars, and unlike Clash Royale, which for the longest time had pretty much one mode, Brawl Stars will launch with four different modes. The modes are Bounty, Smash & Grab, Heist, and Showdown. Bounty is pretty much team deathmatch where you collect stars by eliminating opponents, and the team with the most stars at the end of the match wins. It remains to be seen though whether you'll always get one star per opponent you take out or whether there will be some kinds of bonuses. Smash & Grab has you collecting crystals from the center of the map, and when you collect 10 crystals and hold onto them, which implies a timer of sorts, you win...




First 'Brawl Stars' Details from Supercell Shown Off

Supercell's Brawl Stars tournament livestream is going on right now – seemingly a prerecorded video being shown off. The first gameplay footage has been revealed. This is a top-down shooter where players are fighting for gem mines, collecting gems and fighting against opponents and working with their teammates in 3-on-3 battles. Collecting gems is the goal, and it's possible to also destroy opponents' gems before the end of the match. Different characters, with traditional types such as melee and ranged, will be available...

There has been a lot of activity around Supercell lately, and while we've seen the likes of Clash of Clans [Free] grow from a cult hit into a cultural phenomenon, many have been wondering what the Finnish developers have been up to since Clash Royale [Free] released in March 2016. Today, it seems like we may finally have an answer. A game titled Brawl Stars has been heavily teased on both Twitter and Reddit, and at 9am PDT an exclusive look is scheduled to be streamed on YouTube, giving a first glimpse of the 3v3 combat action in Supercell's next huge iOS release...

'Mario Kart'-like Racer 'Safari Kart' Launching on June 29th

It's hard to make an arcadey kart racing game without drawing comparisons to Mario Kart. I mean, Mario Kart basically invented that genre 25 years ago, and while many very good similar games have come in its wake it is still undoubtedly the king of the mountain. That doesn't mean other developers who don't happen to be named Nintendo don't have something to offer the genre, though, and back in February small Finnish indie developer Mobiteos introduced their take on the kart racer in our forums, a little game called Safari Kart. Multiple playable racers, multiple tracks, weapons and special items… you know the drill, but it all looks quite colorful and cute in the Safari Kart trailer...

If you enjoy minimalist puzzle games on your phone, you'll probably enjoy Cubiques, an upcoming puzzle game that has you playing a little red cube that has to visit all the tiles in each of the levels. While it starts out with pretty simply levels, more tile types are introduced in later levels, which change the mechanics and raise the challenge level. The game has 60 levels, so plenty of challenge for those who enjoy these kinds of games...

'Panthera Frontier' Brings Furry Space Battles to iOS and Android Next Week

Ayopa Games and Extend Interactive have revealed Panthera Frontier is hitting mobile on June 22nd. Controlling what is sure to be a furry-approved cast of characters, you'll assemble a motley crew and do battle with other spaceships in an attempt to be the greatest crew in the cosmos. You'll discover new alien species, powerful weapons, and get involved in an endless number of space battles. Looks intriguing to me, and that's not because of the furries, dang it:..

Not many could claim that Alto's Adventure [$4.99] wasn't a pretty game, but I did hear some players saying they wanted the game to have more complex mechanics and require more skill to navigate the environment, and it looks like Alto's Odyssey, the upcoming sequel of sorts, is doing just that. As you can see from the E3 video below, Alto's Odyssey introduces a new mechanic called wall riding, which lets you slide sideways on the background wall to make it through dangerous chasms. There are also balloons that you either have to clear or bounce on and even wind swirls that shoot you up in the sky...

'Crashing Season: Run' Is an Upcoming Sequel to the Entertaining 'Crashing Season'

Crashing Season [Free] was a fun and quite good-looking game that had you running around as different animals and knocking every obstacle around you into oblivion. Now, the developer Koukoi Games is developing a sequel called Crashing Season: Run, and it will still feature all those cute animal characters from the original, but this time around you'll be piloting all kinds of silly vehicles instead of just running around using the power of your own legs. If it sticks with the same art style, I'm sure it will also look pretty nice...

Premium Turn-Based Strategy Game 'Codex of Victory' Heading to Mobile this Month

There aren't many genres that work better on touchscreens than turn-based strategy games, which makes me wonder why we don't see more of them. Well, developer Ino-Co wants to drop their hit Steam release Codex of Victory onto mobile later this month and add one more option for the turn-based strategy fans out there. In addition to battling it out on a hex-grid landscape through an extensive campaign, you'll also be building out a subterranean military base in a fashion that looks quite similar to the awesome Fallout Shelter [Free]. Check out the trailer for Codex of Victory to get a sense of what it's all about...

First 'Exodus: Proxima Centauri' Gameplay Video Looks Good

A few weeks back we wrote a story about the board game Exodus: Proxima Centauri coming to mobile soon, and now we have gameplay video of the game in our Upcoming Games forum thread. The video looks quite promising, and you can see how the developers are adding 3D spaceship battle scenes that should bring the action to life. If you don't know much about Exodus: Proxima Centauri, the game is inspire by Stanislaw Lem's The Magellanic Cloud and is all about humanity building a new civilization after Earth was destroyed in a nuclear holocaust...

'Flick Champions Extreme' Does Sick Parkour Moves on June 15th

The Flick Champions series of games has been kicking around with various entries across the different sports. But for far too long, Flick Champions hasn't been EXTREME. And now, it is going to be just that, with Flick Champions Extreme set to hit on June 15th. You'll have five different sports to check out: wingsuit, parkour, rock climbing, surfing, and paintball. There will be three diferent game modes: career, endless, and challenge.

Ubisoft Reveals 'South Park: Phone Destroyer' for Mobile at E3 2017

Ubisoft has revealed a brand new South Park game for mobile, titled South Park: Phone Destroyer. The premise will have you playing as teams of various themed heroes, fighting in the streets of South Park, Colorado. Cartman wants to get a game of Cowboys and Indians going, but apparently everyone else wants to expand it out to other Native Americans, and...Angels? Check out the trailer, full of the usual South Park political incorrectness and a bit of raunchiness:..

'Modern Combat Versus' Soft-Launched in New Zealand and Australia, Soft-Launched on Android Early Access too

Our community is very excited for Gameloft's upcoming Modern Combat Versus, and now more of you can access the game. Gameloft has announced that the 0.61 update has added New Zealand and Australia, which should expand the player base and make matchmaking better. If you don't have an account there, you can use our soft-launch guide to grab one. The game is also soft launched in Google Play's Early Access, so now Android players can join the party as well. In addition to expanding the soft launch, Gameloft has tweaked quite a few things with an eye to balancing the game better...

'Silly Walks' is a Wacky Anthropomorphic Object Walking Simulator from the Makers of 'Breakout Ninja'

Part Time Monkey, which I accidentally just mistyped as Party Time Monkey and now I can't help but think that a company name change is in order, is hard at work on their next project after bringing us such delightful treats as Breakout Ninja [Free] and Space Bang [Free]. The new game is called Silly Walks and that title also acts as a handy description as the goal is to guide various anthropomorphic food objects through a gauntlet of dangerous hazards towards safety, as a huge cast of everyday household objects have also sprung to life and they're trying to get themselves some of that food, you know? Check out the colorful trailer for Silly Walks...

'Dungeon Tower' is a Billiards-Inspired Dungeon Crawler From the Developer of 'Corgi Pro Skater'

Alexandre Ferraro, the developer behind last year's Corgi Pro Skater [Free], is working on a brand new game called Dungeon Tower. Described as a pool-like dungeon crawler, you'll be launching your protagonist – currently a rotund chicken with a sword and shield – as you use pool-like aiming and shooting mechanics to launch yourself around the dungeon. You'll hit and bounce off of enemies, some of which have their own physics, others that move according to their own rules. You can hit items like barrels to help you out, but be careful that you don't blow yourself up! Or, even worse, land in a pit that will end your game. That would be bad...

'Sonic Runners Adventure' Released on Gameloft's Android Store in Some Countries

The saga of Sonic Runners Adventure gets just a bit weirder. So, the game has kind of launched in Russia and the UK. But here's where things get interesting: it's a paid game, as well as a free one? But it's only on Gameloft's own WAP store, with plans for a J2ME release. That's what Sonic Stadium is reporting based on some reports from Russian social media service VK and a VPN-accessible listing on Gameloft's WAP store. While an APK of the free-to-play version (reportedly set to hit Google Play at a later date) is floating out there, there's an anti-piracy check. So it may be a bit tricky at the moment to try this one out if you have Android. The good news is that there's some footage popping up on YouTube, showing the level-based game with a bunch of classic zones:..

Sling-Shotting Platformer 'Project MALLOW' Releasing July 18th

We wrote about Project MALLOW a few months back because we liked its fun music and its interesting story, and now it's been announced that the game will release on July 18th. MALLOW is a maddeningly difficult 2D puzzle platformer, as its developers call it, that has you playing a sentient marshmallow that has to launch and stick its way across over 100 level as it tries to escape a candy factory. I'm sure there's a metaphor somewhere in there. As is to be expected, you'll have to make it through all kinds of flames, saw blades, lasers, and probably the mouths of all those craving for marshmallows right now...

'Twin Moon Galaxy' Is an Upcoming Sci-fi Turn-Based RPG

I know that quite a few players enjoy playing turned-based RPGs on tablets and phones, and I think they'll enjoy the upcoming Twin Moon Galaxy, a turn-based sci-fi game from Timbro Studios. The game has you exploring spaceships, mining stations, and even ancient ruins as you follow the story of Maia, a young woman who has discovered she possesses strange abilities. Your purpose in Twin Moon Galaxy is to discover the origin of those powers and the mysteries of the world she inhabits...

'The Mummy Dark Universe Stories' Will be Developed by the Studio Behind 'Oxenfree' and 'Mr. Robot'

If you've already seen Tom Cruise's The Mummy, then you'll know that (spoilers) it doesn't really have an ending since it's setting up the Dark Universe movies to come. To no one's surprise, Universal has decided to make a mobile game to go with the movie, but The Mummy Dark Universe Stories sounds like a much more interesting game than most movie-based games. The developer is Night School Studio, of Oxenfree and Mr. Robot fame, and will be an episodic, supernatural adventure where players take on the role of Nick Morton, Tom Cruise's character from The Mummy, in a story with multiple narrative options and dynamic comic-style illustrations...
