First Trailer Released for Foursaken's "Spelunky Meets Match-3" Game 'Puzzle to the Center of the Earth'

Earlier this month Foursaken media announced that they have a new game in the works called Puzzle to the Center of the Earth, which they described as Spelunky meets match-3. It sounds like an odd pairing, but upon further clarification by Foursaken to the Spelunky influence, it actually sounds like a perfect mix. To quote a comment from them, "Spelunky is all about being very aware of your (randomly generated) surroundings [because] so many things can kill you instantly or very quickly - one mistake and you're dead. And then there's all the other stuff like exploration, using items to get you places, etc... Puzzle to the Center of the Earth definitely has all of those elements, they're just a bit different being wrapped in the core matching gameplay." I don't know about you, but that description alone has me excited, but this first gameplay trailer should do the trick as well...

'Jelly Reef' Coming Next Year from 'Fingle' Creators Game Oven

Game Oven is a Dutch studio that has made some interesting local multiplayer games in the past: you likely know Fingle [$2.99 (HD) / Free (HD)], they've also made the competitive Bam fu [$0.99 / Free], the game of awkward conversations, Friendstrap [Free], which I once played on a date. There was no second date. And now after their ballet-dancing game Bounden [$3.99], Game Oven is doing something truly radical: a game that doesn't necessarily require playing with other people, in Jelly Reef...

Metal-powered 'Vainglory' MOBA Revealed at Apple Keynote

The multiplayer online battle arena scene is a weird one.

Fates Forever [Free (HD)] and Heroes of Order & Chaos [Free] are the main ones, and the just-revealed Vainglory looks pretty damn neat as well...

Invoking the name of Spelunky in any game announcement is serious business. If you haven't heard of it, Spelunky is an amazing permadeath fully randomized platformer that really hit it big when it was released no Xbox Live Arcade in mid-2012 among other platforms in the following year. The game has a huge following due to its insane difficulty and the amount of skill it takes to reach the end of the game alive...

'Angry Birds Stella' Launches Worldwide, Hits Cackling Pigs

The latest Angry Birds game is now out worldwide. Angry Birds Stella [Free], now free from its soft-launch release, stars Stella, a pink bird who has a power of her own, to freeze in midair and launch in another direction, helping to activate chain explosions and the like.

'Angry Birds Transformers' Gets Basically the Best Trailer Ever, Launching October 15th

The mighty Angry Birds Empire announced their latest collaboration back in June, a mashup game with the Transformers brand of transforming alien robot vehicles. Not surprisingly, the game is called Angry Birds Transformers, but that initial announcement didn't provide any further details. Then during Comic-Con in July, Rovio released a visually stunning CGI trailer for Angry Birds Transformers that–while still not revealing any gameplay–was incredibly cool to watch. This week, Rovio has released another new teaser trailer, this time going in an entirely opposite direction of that CGI trailer. This one is lo-fi and an homage to the classic '80s Transformers cartoons. I love it...
