Multiplayer Game 'War & Glory' Looking for Alpha Testers

War & Glory is an upcoming strategy game described as an online sandbox strategy game modeled on the real-world history during the events of World War II. After months of development and tinkering with the various mechanics, the game is ready for Alpha testing. As you can see from the trailer below, the game is hex based but isn't your usual kind of hex-based strategy game. For instance, you have to build roads to attack your opponents with tanks and other vehicles. It's hard to tell much else from the trailer and the minimal information on the website, but we do know that the game will have factions, and you'll be able to use diplomacy, politics, and military to pursue your objectives...

'Injustice 2' Soft-Launches in the Philippines App Store

The mobile iteration of Injustice: Gods Among Us [Free] has been an absolute juggernaut on the App Store, and despite the console version being a top seller I wouldn't be surprised at all if the mobile version vastly outearned its older sibling. Part of the reason is that the mobile Injustice has received a constant stream of updates for the nearly 4 years it's been on the App Store, frequently adding new features and content to continuously keep its large audience of players engaged. While Injustice 2 is now officially in the works for consoles, when word of the sequel originally leaked last summer we thought that might mean a new Injustice for mobile too. However, with Warner Bros. and NetherRealm's update strategy for the original mobile game we weren't sure if a brand new app was in the cards or if it would simply be some more heavy updating to the existing game. Well, it looks like a full-blown new app sequel it is as today Injustice 2 has soft-launched in the Philippines App Store...




Upcoming 'Rubix Revolution' Is Like a 3D 'Geometry Dash'

If you like fast, punishing games like the famous - or infamous - Geometry Dash [$1.99], the upcoming Rubix Revolution might scratch a similar itch. As you can see from the trailer below, the game by 111 Games is all about hopping your way out of trouble as you navigate spikes, drops, and all kinds of other obstacles. However, in this game you rotate the playing field to avoid those obstacles, get your hands on more coins, and find hidden items across the level. I might be getting too old, but if I were playing the levels from the trailer, I would probably die a million times or more...

New 'Morphite' Trailer Shows Two Minutes of Dinosaur Fights

If you're as excited as I am for We're Five Games and Crescent Moon's upcoming first-person shooter/adventure game Morphite following our previous coverage, then you probably won't object to seeing a brand new gameplay trailer which Crescent Moon posted in our forums and on the game's Steam Greenlight page over the weekend. And I'm almost certain that you won't mind said gameplay trailer featuring multiple dinosaur fights and a dog with a turret on its back. Need I say more? Check out just over two uninterrupted minutes of Morphite gameplay below...

Get on The 'Rhom Bus' From the Developer of 'The Mesh'

Creatiulab, a studio responsible for some fun and stylish games in Stubies [$1.99] and The Mesh [$1.99], is coing back wtih their third game, Rhom Bus, releasing on February 23rd. It seems like a word game at first, and it kind of is, but it's actually an unorthodox puzzle game. You drop tiles that form words and names onto the game board. These tiles can only be linked in specific directions on the tile, and linking two tiles combines the two tiles into one tile that forms the next letter, with three-tile matches forming the second consecutive letter. The drops start to come in different combinations to where you have to start considering where you drop them to form future letters, though you can rotate the board as well. It makes sense when you play it, but you can catch some of what's going on in the trailer:..

Tactical Card Game 'Aftershock' Has Soft-Launched

If you're looking for a game that not only fits in a busy schedule but also builds an adventure out of your daily activities, you might want to check out Aftershock, which has soft-launched today. An earlier version of the game called Give me Fuel came out some time ago, but it was more of a proof of concept rather than a fully-fledged game. So, the developers built on what they learned from developing and releasing that game and made Aftershock, which is an intriguing game based on the idea of making games for busy people...

The Radiant 'Robot Unicorn Attack 3' Receiving Update With Unicorn Backstories and Performance Enhancements

A couple of weeks ago, we brought you news that the third entry in the eccentric but essential Robot Unicorn Attack series soft launched on the App Store. In keeping with the precedent set by the previous platforming action Adult Swim brought to the App Store many moons ago, the latest title was a whole lot of fun to play - but being a soft launch meant many were asking when the game's global launch would take place, and how different the final release would be to the rather excellent version those in New Zealand were playing right now. While the former question still seems to be up in the air, the developers are extremely active on our forum thread to respond to any questions from Robot Unicorn enthusiasts, and have outlined some neat details on the forthcoming content update for Robot Unicorn Attack 3...

Gameloft Resurrects Halo-Like 'N.O.V.A.' Series as Upcoming Free to Play Game (For Android?)

When this video got dropped into our Discord chat this morning (Which is a great place to get breaking iOS games news as it takes so much less time for someone to drop a YouTube link there than it does for me to write an article here, by the way!) when I was out grabbing coffee I couldn't help but laugh so hard I got strange looks from people around me- Not because the trailer is particularly funny, but because this sort of thing is the exact opposite of what people around here are always asking for. Backing up a bit, back in the hay day of Gameloft, they were rapidly releasing "highly inspired" games for mobile leaning heavily on popular console titles. One of those was the N.O.V.A. series, which would have been pretty easy to mistake as a Halo game if you weren't too familiar with the Halo universe...

'Gravity Galaxy' Looks Like a Fun Orbital Action-Puzzle Game

PixelByte, a two-person UK studio, is set to release their first game onto mobile on February 16th, called Gravity Galaxy. The idea is that it's a "hybrid puzzle game" where you have to try and collect all 3 stars in a level by navigating the orbit of different planets. Along the way, you have to avoid hazards and, you know, flying out into endless space where you float unceasingly into oblivion. That's bad. But PixelByte wants to combine that with some real-time aspects, where timing and reactions come into play as well as the thoughtful side of the game...

'Wobblers' Is a Unique High Score Chaser From the Developer of 'Down the Mountain'

For a while, Umbrella has been quite active in one sense, publishing a bunch of games from other developers under their studio. But an actual game developed by the team has been a long time coming, at least for the past 10 months or so. However, that all changes on February 23rd, when Wobblers, a title developed and published by the studio releases. This high score chaser feels quite unique, as you have to tap left and right to move your platform, and keep your wobbler from falling off the screen. ..

'Feudal Feud' Is a Promising Multiplayer Diplomacy/Conquest Game

Do you have any qualms about subjugating your neighbors and turning them into obedient vassals? How about conquering without mercy? And what about being all diplomatic while perhaps scheming at the same time? If you like doing all that and like to do so alongside 100 other players, the upcoming Feudal Feud is probably for you. This diplomacy, conquest, and strategy wargame lite (as the developers call it) will play in real time over a period of a few weeks, and during that time you'll try and dominate your region. When you conquer someone, their game doesn't end; instead, they become your vassals and then can revolt if they so desire...

Humorous Dungeon Crawler 'Dungeon Rushers' Gets New Trailer Ahead of February 23rd Launch on Mobile

Just about a month after its official release on Steam, we learned that Goblinz Studio was partnering with Out There [$1.99] developer Mi-Clos to bring the humorous dungeon crawling game Dungeon Rushers over to mobile. The following month, Goblinz opened up beta testing to the community and has been working hard on the mobile version since, and earlier this month they announced that Dungeon Rushers would finally be hitting the App Store on February 23rd. Through all those articles about Dungeon Rushers, one thing has remained constant: Our only trailer for the game was an extremely old one from April of last year when the game was just entering Steam Early Access. Well that ends today! A brand new trailer for Dungeon Rushers has been released, rejoice people!..

'Into The Breach' is a New Turn-Based Strategy Game from the Makers of 'FTL: Faster Than Light'

FTL: Faster Than Light [$9.99 (HD)] is one of the best video games of the past several years, and it really found a nice home when arrived on the iPad in spring of 2014. So when FTL developer Subset Games announces a new game, it's worth getting excited for. Today the developer has unveiled Into The Breach, a turn-based strategy game about fighting off an alien invasion using bad ass mechs from the future. Honestly, do you need any other description besides that to want this game? Did we mention it's from the folks who made FTL? Is there a phrase that's more instant than "insta-buy?" Check out the awesome trailer for Into The Breach...

Take a Look at the Trailer for 'Djinn Caster', an Upcoming Kemco Action RPG

Someone better wake up Shaun Musgrave, because Kemco is teasing their next mobile release. It's called Djinn Caster, and its due to hit the App Store later this month. Kemco isn't getting specific beyond "February," so, that realistically likely either means next week the 15th or the following week of the 22nd. They just released a new trailer for the game this morning, which ticks off basically every box of things you'd expect out of an action RPG:..

The Upcoming 'Rhythm Doctor' Combines Glitchstep Music and ... Saving Patients?

This is definitely a weird one, but, often times the best mobile games are the strangest. Per a (surprisingly) information filled post in our forums, Rhythm Heaven is a upcoming single-tap rhythm game that puts players to the challenge of saving patients by tapping to every seventh beat. You'd think this would as easy as counting to seven, but the twist the game has is the music is "infected" leading to glitchstep. It makes more sense to just watch the trailer:..

Expansive RPG 'Tower of Time' Gets Detailed Gameplay Trailer

If you've been intrigued by Tower of Time, you'll want to check out the new 4-minute-long video the developer has released that covers the game and how it works. You'll command your heroes around the battle arena, dealing with enemies that spawn in and try to take you down. You have slow mode options to help strategize with your characters and their abilities, letting you form a good strategy without worrying about getting attacked while you do so. ..

'Simon's Cat' Match-3 Game Coming This June

I enjoy watching cat videos - as does most of the world - and Simon's Cat, the animated cartoon and book series by the British animator Simon Tofield, is one of the cutest things to watch because of how well it shows cats' quirky behaviors. Simon's Cat will soon be coming over to the App Store in the form of a match-3 game developed and published by Strawdog Studios. The game will of course be free and will come out for both iOS and Android...

'Surely You Quest' Is an Upcoming 'Mighty Magiswords' Idle RPG

For some strange reason, I seem to be constantly crossing paths with Cartoon Network's Mighty Magiswords series, even though I haven't actually watched much of the show. Now, we are getting an idle RPG called Surely You Quest that will have you swinging those Magiswords to your heart's desire. A few words about the show, first and why it's a pretty good fit for an idle RPG. Mighty Magiswords follows the adventures of Prohyas and Vambre, two siblings who use their amazing Magiswords, swords that take all kinds of forms and have all kinds of weird abilities. You might have a sword with an attractive voice that distracts enemies, one that shoots strips of bacon to the opponent, and so on...

'Die by Died' is a Strangely Named Action Platformer with a Heavy 'Castlevania' Vibe

Developer Wei Shi has a new game in the works, and despite its odd name it's really looking promising so far. It's called Die by Died and it's an action platformer with RPG elements that's scheduled to release on February 22nd. Starting with your trusty default handgun, you'll dispatch all manor of creepy enemies as you explore levels, collect items and coins, and eventually unlock even fiercer types of weapons. Check out this gameplay trailer of Die by Died to get an idea of what it's like...

Nimblebit Releases First Teaser Trailer for 'Bit City', Launching Next Month

If you happen to follow any of the Nimblebit developers on Twitter, you'd know that they've been teasing screenshots from their upcoming city building simulation Bit City for months now. Taking everything the team has learned from Tiny Tower and its various spinoffs and putting it all into a full-blown city building game sounds like a dream come true, and their various social media teasers have had me excited to see what Bit City is all about. Well, today Nimblebit is offering up another tease in the form of a brief trailer giving a look at a Bit City city in action...
