'SimpleRockets 2' Coming in Early 2018 to iOS, Android, and PC

Developer Jundroo hit on a winning formula when they released their physics sandbox game SimplePhysics [$0.99] back in March of 2011. The game allowed you to create various types of structures and then let them loose in a realistic physics environment to see if they'd hold up or if your architectural dreams would turn into nightmares. The game was a hit with players, cruising towards the top of the charts early in its life, and a couple of years later they released SimpleRockets [$2.99] which saw a similar sort of success. As you could probably guess based off its name, SimpleRockets let you build the rocket of your dreams and then try to successfully launch it into space, not totally unlike the smash hit indie game Kerbal Space Program. In late 2014 they applied the formula to building planes in SimplePlanes [$4.99], and just this past July they went for a change of pace with the twitchy arcade game Aero Effect [$1.99]. Now, Jundroo is heading back to that earlier success with a sequel to SimpleRockets which you can catch a glimpse of in the teaser below...

'Smash Up', the Shuffle-building Card Game, Coming Next Week

You get a card game, and you get a card game, and you get a card game! That seems to be the App Store these days, but I can't say that I'm complaining too much because I do like card games, and Smash Up, which releases next week, will probably be another fun one to add to my collection. Smash Up is a shuffle-building card game where you can combine all kinds of crazy decks like Ninjas with Dinosaurs, Zombies and Pirates, Robots with Wizards, and more. So, as you can imagine, beside the strategy behind picking these decks, there's also a fun factor that comes from the theme. Each of the decks have 20 cards, and you get to pick them in a drafting process...




Amanita Design Unveils the First Trailer for 'CHUCHEL', Releasing in 2018

Amanita Design have finally revealed the first trailer for their newest game called Chuchel. If you aren’t familiar with Amanita Design, they’ve made some of my favourite games in recent times with Botanicula [$4.99] and Machinarium [$4.99]. They recently released Samorost 3 [$4.99] on iOS and Android. Their games not only look and sound great but also play brilliantly on touch and are a dream on iOS. Earlier this week, they started teasing news for their latest project and it has fully been unveiled with a new trailer today. CHUCHEL is an adventure game and it has been revealed for iOS and Android in addition to PC platforms. Watch the trailer below:..

'Let Them Come' Launched on Steam, iOS and Android Is Next

Let Them Come, a machine gun sequence turned into a game according to the developer, has been in the works for quite some time, but a mobile release is now getting closer. We first wrote about the game back in 2015, and while it was supposed to come out in 2016, it got delayed because the developer wanted to release it on PC first. Now that the game has released on Steam, Let Them Come is on its way to Android and iOS. Let Them Come was inspired by those movies where the protagonist is stuck behind a machine gun, trying to defend himself from hordes of nightmarish creatures coming his way. It's like a scene from a movie like Alien...

Tencent's Cyberpunk 'San Giorli' Looks Great, Coming October 12th

China's Tencent Games, which is getting ready to bring the hugely successful Arena of Valor to the US, is also promoting the development of smaller indie games, and the upcoming San Giorli is a great example of that push. San Giorli is a cyberpunk atmospheric puzzle game that was the winner of Tencent's annual Mini-Game Competition, a competition aimed at helping young developers. San Giorli takes place in a city with the same name, a world at the junction of three galaxies and, at one time in its history, the largest transportation and trading center in the universe. You play as the Captain, a technician originally from San Giorli, who has made his way back to the town for the first time in a long time...

Brawl With 4 Friends on One Device in 'Shy Bunnies'

Local multiplayer had its glory days back in the 90s and 00s, and while multiplayer gaming is now almost exclusively online, it doesn't quite capture the joy of mocking your friend sitting next to you for being totally worthless and gloating in your success. Some developers have been using mobile devices to offer same-device multiplayer modes in an effort to capture some of that old magic, and the developer of the upcoming Shy Bunnies hopes to do the same. Shy Bunnies uses a single button that moves your bunny around, and that's it. Everything else is timing and chaos...

Game of Thrones: Conquest Releases on October 19th, New Trailer Released

Warner Brothers finally announced the release date for Game of Thrones: Conquest. Developed by Turbine, the MMO strategy game will hit the App Store and Google Play on October 19th. Pre-registrations are live and doing so nets you $50 of in game goodies with exclusive Night’s Watch training gear and more. Get ready to play as the head of your own house in Turbine’s new MMO strategy experience which will feature characters from the HBO TV show. In addition to revealing the release date we have a new teaser trailer for Game of Thrones: Conquest that you can view below:..

3-Hero Platformer 'The Sidekicks' Releasing October 18th

The Sidekicks is a 3-hero platformer in the fashion of games like Trine, and it's coming to your mobile devices October 18th. As we wrote about a few months back, this platformer has you playing Bellie G, Zeronita, and Noobert as you try to make it through 30 hand-crafted levels. Each of the characters has their own superpowers and abilities, and you'll have to use each wisely if you want to make it through the many puzzles you'll encounter. In addition to their special powers, each character has their own personality, which adds humor to the game. Zeronita is a goth who dresses in all black, has no patience for the world, and has a scream that shatters glass and makes enemies vanish. Bellie G, on the other hand, has an almighty belly bounce, of course...

Ragdolls Go Medieval in 'Foolball', Out November 9th

A few months back we wrote about the upcoming Fooball, a medieval ball game with silly ragdolls, and today we learned that the game is scheduled to release November 9th. Ragdoll physics games are very popular on the App Store (Flip Master has been hovering in the top 5 paid games on the App Store for some time now) partly because of their hilarity, and, judging from the trailer, Foolball will have plenty of hilarity as well. The game is all about 2 gladiators battling until the king is pleased. And since this is medieval times, they use the king's fool as the ball and burning loops as the goals. Humane...

Crazy Dungeon Crawler 'The Scrungeon Depths' Has a Hilarious New Trailer, Launching November 9th on the App Store

Earlier this year, we brought you news on the eclectic endless roguelike dungeon crawler The Scrungeon Depths, and both the early previews and tremendous beta testing response have emphasised how well developer Chase Holton has refined the humorous and hectic nature of the game. With some pretty pixel art graphics and a lot of enemies to slay, The Scrungeon Depths reminds me of the likes of Death Road to Canada [$10.99] and The Binding of Isaac [$14.99] but dialled up to 11, which is a fantastically enticing prospect. After a few weeks of radio silence, the developer has revealed a brilliant brand new trailer for the game, and has also announced that The Scrungeon Depths will be launching on the App Store next month on November 9th...

Puzzle Platformer Remake 'Duke Dashington Remastered' Is Charging Onto the App Store on November 9th

2014's Duke Dashington [$0.99] was the first in a long line of awesome puzzle platforming titles from developer Adventure Islands, and the frantic nature of the challenges combined with the Wario-esque arrogant swagger of the titular protagonist resulted in a particularly memorable mobile experience. Those of us who may have enjoyed the original game will be all to aware that the recent 32-bit Appocalypse means the game is currently unplayable on iOS 11, however the developers have seized this seemingly sad situation to bring Duke Dashington charging into 2017 in style. Enter Duke Dashington Remastered - don't let the name fool you, this entirely new game in the series is built from the ground up with new level design and improvements in almost every aspect of the title, and is set to launch on the App Store on November 9th...

Upcoming 'Digimon Links' Releases First English Language Trailer

If you're a Digimon fan, you'll be glad to know that Digimon Links, a game that's been out in Japan for a while now, is on its way to our shores, and now we got the first English language trailer that shows off the game's features. Digimon Links lets you train Digimon on your farm, which requires you to build various buildings that give your Digimon perks in battle. You will also use that farm to deal with some unexplained phenomena, whatever those are. Then, you take those Digimon to battle using the game's 3 vs 3 turn-based system, where leader skills, signature and legacy skills, and attributes and resistances help you make it through victorious. I'm sure you've never heard of a battle system like this one, right?..

'PUBG'-Inspired 'Bullet Strike: Battlegrounds' Opens Android Pre-registration

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is all the rage, as you probably very well know, and, understandably, mobile developers want to join the party. We wrote a couple of days ago about Guns Royale, which is a cartoonish take on the popular battle royale game, but there's another PUBG-inspired game under development right now, Bullet Strike: Battlegrounds, which goes for a more "realistic" take on the formula and looks a lot more like PUBG than Guns Royale does. We wrote about Bullet Strike a few months ago, and starting tomorrow, you can pre-register for the game's Android version, if that's your platform of choice...

'Gwent'-Like 'Runewards' CCG Looking for Testers in Our Forums

Gwent, the card game that grew out of The Witcher 3, has been received very well by card players because it offers a different flavor than the likes of Hearthstone and Magic, but no official word that it's coming to mobile yet. So, Reaver Games is stepping in to fill that gap with an upcoming game called Runewards, a card game that uses most of Gwent's mechanics. The basic idea behind Runewards (and Gwent) is you play against your opponent in a best of three matches, and your goal is to have more points on your half of the field than your opponent at the end of each round. A round ends when one of the player passes or runs out of cards...

Date Angels and Even Lucifer in 'Miraclr: Divine Dating Sim', Out Soon

Dating apps are all the rage now, and Woody Studio's next visual novel is taking that idea all the way up to literal heaven. Miraclr: Divine Dating Sim takes place at a time when the archangels are planning their first miracle on Earth in over four centuries, but they, of course, need your help. Since humans aren't allowed to enter heaven until they die, it's up to you to help angels plan their miracle through the use of a mobile office collaboration app (even angels know smartphones is where it's at). The developers call miraclr a comedic workplace romance visual novel, and that description alone makes me want to play it...

Capcom's 'Puzzle Fighter' Has Soft Launched in Six Countries

Puzzle Fighter from Capcom has finally soft launched on the App Store. Puzzle Fighter is the sequel to Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo and it was scheduled to hit iOS by the end of the year. It was playable at PAX and has officially soft launched in six countries right now and if you’ve been craving some Ryu and Chun-Li puzzle action, download it today. Match gems to take out your opponents through strategies involving combos and more. Puzzle Fighter has vintage arenas from Capcom games and it is free to play and has a very interesting art style to say the least. Watch the trailer below:..

'Albion Online' "Joseph" Update Launches, Still No Word on iOS Client

Following the development of Albion Online has been a guilty pleasure of mine for quite a while, particularly with the comparisons many have made between Albion and Ultima Online, my all-time favorite game. We got a look at the tablet version last year, and while it's presumably still in the works, the developers are plugging right along with content updates for the PC client (which really will just make the mobile launch even better when it finally hits)...

Crescent Moon Announces Hack 'N Slash RPG 'Runic Rampage' is Heading to Mobile

Developer Electrocosmos, which is in reality solo German developer Alexander Leps, released the top-down hack 'n slash RPG Runic Rampage onto Steam this past May to a positive reception. In the game you play as a dwarf named Grimbard who wields a mighty hammer and can cast some neat magical spells, and your job is to find the fragments of the mystical rune stone that used to protect your people, but has somehow gone missing which caused the kingdom to plunge into war and chaos. You'll traverse many lands on your quest to "Uncover the truth about your kingdom's downfall and change the destiny of your nation." Oh, and it's also absurdly gory. Here's the Steam launch trailer for Runic Rampage to give you an idea of what it's like...

Check Out a New Video of 'Time Recoil' Running on iOS

Time Recoil is the newest top-down shooter from developer 10tons, and is something of a spiritual successor to their absolutely killer top-down shooter Neon Chrome [$8.99], which has enjoyed much acclaim both on desktop and mobile. Just last week we learned that 10tons would be bringing Time Recoil, which just launched on desktop last month and on PS4 and Xbox One earlier this month, to the iOS platform. Along with that announcement was a brief video showing the game running on an iPad, but today 10tons has posted another video of Time Recoil on iOS, this time captured directly from the device rather than filmed over someone's shoulder. Check it out...

'Doctor Who Infinity' Coming to Mobile Next Spring

I'm a huge Doctor Who fan, so any time I hear about a Doctor Who game coming our way, my ears perk up. Well, today is one of those days. Tiny Rebel Games has just announced that a new game called Doctor Who Infinity is coming to mobile (and PC) Spring 2018, although it's going to soft launch earlier than that. The game is developed in close collaboration with Doctor Who actors, writers, and artists, although "close collaboration" can mean many different things. They do seem to be taking the game seriously, though, and trying to stay true to the franchise. And they better, because Whovians are not to be messed with...
