'Great Big War Game' Not Big Enough, Rubicon Announces 'Ultimate War Game'

Rubicon Development made their name on iOS in 2011 with Great Little War Game, a turn-based strategy game with an Advanced Wars feel that was built for mobile. Indeed it was a great little war game. Then in 2012, they followed it up with Great Big War Game, and as the name implied it was a bigger, badder version of the first game with online multiplayer, which had been a highly-requested feature. It was critically well-received, but failed to really break through to the mainstream mobile audience. Perhaps it was a little too much for your average mobile gamer? So earlier this year, Rubicon released Great Little War Game 2. Its aim was to strip away some of the heavier features the series had gained and focus on what made the first game work so well...

Wind-Up Knight 2 [Free] creators Robot Invader have been doing some experiments after that game's release, making some smaller games, mostly on Android, with Cybergon and Tapthello over on Android. But a new small game is making its way to iOS soon: Dungeon Slots...

'Crazy Taxi: City Rush' Starts Picking up Passengers Worldwide on July 31st

Sega's Crazy Taxi: City Rush is leaving its soft launch period and releasing worldwide on July 31st, this Thursday. For those unfamiliar with the game, it's a free-to-play take on the Dreamcast classic Crazy Taxi [$4.99], which the price tag should indicate is also on mobile. It's still a classic, and it appears to be sticking around on the App Store even with the free-to-play version now. Take notes, EA. City Rush is a lane-based take on that "pick up passengers in a taxi, and weave through traffic to get to the final destination as quickly as possible" gameplay that made it so famous. ..

First Trailer Released for Foursaken Media's Next Game 'Phantom Rift'

Foursaken Media originally announced their next project (well, one of their next projects) via a Tweet way back in May. At this time the name of the game wasn't even known, but Foursaken described it as "a mix of Bastion and Mega Man Battle Network with tons of equipment, abilities and customization." Foursaken fans in our forums quickly made a discussion thread based off this limited information, and shortly after Foursaken joined in to reveal some more tidbits on the game. First off was its name, Phantom Rift. It's described as an action RPG where you play as a wizard who's caught in a strange nether-realm called The Rift. You roam around the randomly generated world of the Rift uncovering treasures, battling enemies, and eventually finding out why you're there in the first place...

Simogo's Latest Story-Based iOS Game, 'The Sailor's Dream', Announced

Simogo released two utter masterpieces in 2013: Year Walk [$3.99] and Device 6 [$3.99], but they've been in quiet in 2014 outside of the Year Walk Steam release. But wait no longer: they have announced their next game, The Sailor's Dream, coming late 2014 to iOS. ..

'Firefly Online' Also Gets a Comic Con Trailer

Hey! Another thing that's relevant to us at Comic Con! If you remember last Comic Con we posted the vague reveal trailer for Firefly Online, which didn't show too much unless you're really in to ships and planets. Well, this year they've upped the ante:..

'Re-Volt 2' Briefly Appears on the App Store as Free to Play Racer

There are few PC racing games I have fonder memories of than the RC car racer Re-Volt. It hit in the late 90's, and I couldn't even begin to guess the amount of time I spent playing multiplayer with friends around that time. Re-Volt Classic [$5.99] is available on the App Store, but it's one of those games that you need to have some thick rose colored nostalgia classes on to fully enjoy. Regardless, this classic IP seems primed for a reboot...

Apple "Frustrated" that "People Don't Want to Pay Anything" on Mobile, Says 'The Banner Saga' Developer

There's a very interesting interview over on Polygon with Stoic Studios, developers of the hit tactical adventure title The Banner Saga which launched on Steam back in January and is on its way to the iPad. In the interview Stoic touches on what it's like developing a game as a fledgling indie studio, and two things in particular really stood out to me...

Is 'Bioshock' Finally Coming to iOS? Well, That's One Way You Could Read These Tea Leaves

Hanging out with our pals from MacRumors and having been involved in the X-Files club in Junior High (No, for real, X-Files just premiered and it was red hot.) might be responsible for grooming me in to reading between any two lines I can possibly find, but try this on for size: 2K's UK account typically tweets about Borderlands, Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns Superman punching, and other stuff relevant to their games. That makes sense, it's a Twitter account for a publisher...

The 'Angry Birds Transformers' Comic Con Trailer is Pretty Gnarly

Mobile stuff usually isn't that prevalent at Comic Con, short of a few spillover trailers for games that might also be coming to mobile. Rovio, as usual, is the exception here and just released a pretty awesome Angry Birds Transformers trailer:..
