Mi-Clos and Goblinz Studio's 'Dungeon Rushers' Needs Mobile Testers

I was excited to hear about Dungeon Rushers coming to mobile, with publishing by Mi-Clos. Sure, I could play it on PC, but I would rather play it on my iPad. Wouldn't you? Well, if you can't wait till February, then good news: developer Goblinz Studio is opening up beta testing slots for iOS and Android users. Just fill out this handy form here and you can sign up to get into the mobile beta of Dungeon Rushers...

The Charming 'Hidden Folks' Is Looking for Playtesters and Translators

Hidden Folks is a very charming upcoming game that we've been keeping an eye on here at TouchArcade towers. Carter got a chance to see it up close and came away quite impressed, so that's a good sign. Hidden Folks is a Where's Waldo type of game, but the fun part is you have to mess around with the environment in order to find the different characters. As you can see from the trailer below, Hidden Folks looks like it will be great fun to play, especially on a larger screen (it is coming to the Apple TV, too)...




Nexon M's 'Durango' Dinosaur Survival Beta Now Open, Still Accepting Android Signups

Good news if you signed up for the beta for Nexon M's impressive-looking Durango: the beta is officially open for business, with download links going out now. Running from now until January 3rd, 2017, those who signed up can dig into this open-world MMORPG where you'll have to deal with survival and rebuilding society in a land where there's dinosaurs all about. Dinosaurs that you can ride! I want to ride a freaking dinosaur!..

Mi-Clos' Co-Op Interactive Adventure 'Antioch: Scarlet Bay' Launching April 6th

A few weeks back, we wrote that Mi-Clos' Antioch: Scarlet Bay was scheduled to release March 2017. Unfortunately, the game has been pushed back, but the good news is that it's only for a few weeks since the game will release on April 6th, and I personally can't wait. If you don't know what Antioch is all about, this murder-mystery interactive story will have you playing with either a friend or a stranger as you both cooperate, or even clash, on your way to solving the mystery. There are dialogue choices to make, clues to investigate, and suspects to interview (I hope we can play bad cop/good cop) as you both try to uncover the secrets hiding in the city of Antioch...

'Island Delta' Will Give You a Gravity Gun and Plenty of Puzzles to Solve

Have you been sitting there, sad that you won't have another Noodlecake-published game to enjoy in 2016? Despair no longer, fine citizen. Mantisbite's Island Delta is coming on December 22nd. This isometric puzzle-action game gives you a gravity gun and levels full of tasks only accomplished with the power of picking up objects and throwing them about. Use boxes to block lasers. Pick up an enemy and throw them into a bottomless pit. Solve puzzles by putting everything in its rightful place. Try to stay alive as you deal with the machinations of the evil Dr. Gunderson. That it doesn't sound menacingly evil is what should scare you...

Craneballs' Upcoming 'Bomb Hunters' Looks Like a Blast, Needs Beta Testers

Craneballs are App Store stalwarts, and having been around for a while in iOS gaming, the Czech developers have dabbled in a wide variety of genres, from shooters such as the Overkill [Free] series, to strange Splatoon-meets-racing hybrids like the February release Splash Cars [Free]. However, despite their eclectic experiences thus far, bomb defusing games are certainly new ground, and that's what Craneballs are attempting to pull off in their upcoming game Bomb Hunters. As you'd expect from the title, Bomb Hunters tasks you with navigating highly fortified environments full of numerous defences in an attempt to deactivate a hidden explosive before the timer runs out and it explodes. This interesting against-the-clock take on Crossy Road [Free] endless puzzle games looks refreshing, and if you'd like to give it a go before its impending release, the developers are looking for beta testers for Bomb Hunters on our forum for both iOS and Android gamers...

'Guns and Spurs' Is an Upcoming Open World Western Adventure, Launching Early 2017

One of the more eagerly anticipated gaming announcements of 2016 was the big Rockstar reveal of Red Dead Redemption 2. The epic western open world adventuring of the original game back in 2010 captured the hearts and imaginations of both hardcore gamers and also more casual players, as its incredibly immersive story and world were truly breathtaking to behold. While its console sequel may not be making the transition towards mobile quite yet, one-man development team Sakis25 Games is looking to fill the cowboy-shaped void on your mobile device. Guns and Spurs, which is slated for an early 2017 release, lets you traverse a dusty western terrain on the back of your trusty steed, whilst apprehending enemies and taking part in horse race events across the land...

The Gorgeous 'Snailboy: Rise of Hermitron' Has Soft Launched

A few weeks back we wrote about the upcoming Snailboy: Rise of Hermitron and talked about its cool-looking visuals. If you have an Ireland or South Africa App Store account, you can now check the game out for yourselves because the game is now officially in soft launch. The sequel to Snailboy: An epic Adventure comes with many more features, challenges, and much larger environments for you to explore. The little snail guy can sling, stick, swim, or hop his way around as he searches for secret caves filled with loot and uses various power ups to take take his various enemies...

How to Import 'The Walking Dead' Saves Into Season Three, 'A New Frontier'

The long-awaited Season 3 of Telltale's The Walking Dead [Free] is almost upon us, and if you were wondering whether you can import your saves from the previous seasons into the new one, here's how to do it. The first way to do it is using the Story Generator option. This option has you answering a bunch of questions regarding the earlier seasons and then selects one of 42 starting points for you to start your playthrough in Season 3. I like this idea a lot because it also lets you create all kinds of different timelines and then see how Season 3 would play out. Apparently this new option forced the developers to comb through a ton of data, but I think the result is worth it...

Ever since iOS 10 hit, we've been getting some cool games you can play on your Messages app, and the upcoming Blackjack Buddies looks to join the party on December 21st. The game is a combination of Blackjack and crosswords by forcing you to place cards on a board as you try to make a 21. If you manage to form blackjacks of the same suit, you get double the points. The game even comes with hot seat multiplayer if you're ever stuck with someone but only have one phone between you (oh the tragedy)...

'Transformers: Forged to Fight' Is Sounding Better and Better

A few weeks back we wrote about Transformers: Forged to Fight, an upcoming fighting game starring many people's favorite robots. Many in the comments were rightfully worried that this game would be nothing but the Marvel and DC fighting games with different skins, but judging from this recent interview in Kotaku, there might be more to Forged to Fight than just a re-skinned Injustice game. For one, the game will heavily feature guns, missiles, lasers, and all kinds of other ranged attacks that you can shoot off while keeping your distance...

'Dead Island: Survivors' Has Soft-Launched in Norway

When the PC/console game Dead Island released a trailer featuring zombie mayhem going in reverse, everyone sat up and took notice. While the game didn't manage to reach the heights of that trailer, it was still a pretty good zombie game, and now a mobile version of it called Dead Island: Survivors has soft launched in Norway. Survivors has you building a base and supporting your allies as you all try to defend against the hordes of infected people. In building your base, you set traps and barricades as you try to create the strongest and most efficient defenses...

Upcoming Shoot 'em Up 'Hawk: Freedom Squadron' Will Bring Co-Op Destruction

Vertical shoot 'em ups remind me of the days I used to go to the arcade next to my house and spend all my quarters. Arcades might be pretty much gone by now, but the genre has flourished on mobile because of how well the touchscreen is suited for those type of games. Hawk: Freedom Squadron is an upcoming shoot 'em up ready to blast its way onto iOS and Android in early 2017. What this game has going for it is the ability to play co-op instead of just going at it all by yourself, a feature that should make it stand out among most games in the genre...

The Upcoming 'Cyber Gargoyle' Is a Good-Looking Platformer

Cyber Gargoyle - The Fettered Mind is an upcoming platformer that's currently under review from Apple, but I hope for the developers' sake that they don't try to release it this week because the whole world will be living under the shadow of that familiar plumber. As the developers have written in our Upcoming Games forum thread, Cyber Gargoyle is a Metroidvania platformer that offers non-linear gameplay and an entertaining story. You can get a sense of the story in the trailer below, and I do like that it's a bit more original than your usual platformer (no princess to save for instance)...

Board Games 'Mysterium' and 'Potion Explosion' Delayed Till January

A few weeks ago, we talked about December being a great month for those who enjoy board games because Mysterium and Potion Explosion, both quite fun games with the first one an award-winner, were going to give you options for your Christmas presents either to others or to yourself. Well, unfortunately your Christmas will be less board gamey after all since according to BoardGameGeek, both games have been pushed from December to January...

Pixeljam's Pixel Art Pinball Game 'Snowball!' Launches on December 22nd

Good news for what is sure to be the last major release Thursday of the year: Pixeljam's Snowball! is set to release on December 22nd. This pinball game has you launching snowballs on a giant table, full of pinball tricks both conventional – ramps and switches – and unconventional: a magnetic tower, and a minecart that serves as an effective Breakout paddle. The whole thing takes place on a snowy mountainside, and the bottom of the level between the two main flippers is a campfire...

Check Out the First Trailer for Upcoming 3D Metroidvania 'Morphite'

Crescent Moon Games and We're Five Games' Morphite has seemed rather intriguing, seemingly combining space exploration with the ability to visit planets and find their secrets. And while we've had a ton of screenshots to peruse so far, video footage has been tough to come by. Well, now we have some, as a trailer for the upcoming exploration title has been revealed:..

Upcoming 'Malevolent Machines' Posts New Gameplay Trailers

After sharing plenty of art and a teaser, the upcoming steampunk runner Malevolent Machines has started showing off gameplay videos. While the animation is a bit on the clunky side, so far I like what I'm seeing. The art is quite unique and the whole game looks fun, if you like runners of course. Otherwise, I don't think this one will be your cup of mobile game tea. If you haven't read our previous stories on Malevolent Machines or visited the game's forum thread, know that there's an intriguing story behind all the running that involves Dr. Leyla Green unleashing all kinds of horrors upon us because she was careless...

Watch 'The Walking Dead - A New Frontier' Release Trailer

It's almost time for the big two-episode premiere of The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series - A New Frontier [Free] on December 20th, so Telltale has released the official launch trailer for your enjoyment. Episode One: Ties that Bind Part I and Episode Two: Ties that Bind Part II will let you experience the events that brought the famous Clementine and the newcomer Javier together. As you can expect, those events won't be pretty, but what in that world is? You'll also get to see some familiar faces from The Walking Dead universe, but I won't spoil that in case you don't want to watch the trailer...

'Super Mario Run' Seems to be a Hit With Investors

When big developers give the public an early taste of their games, many wait to see how investors will react and whether stocks will rise or fall. Usually those first clues hint at whether investors believe a game will be a hit or not. Well, it looks like after taking a look at the early Super Mario Run [Free] gameplay videos and people's reactions after their brief hands-on with the game, investors are quite convinced the game will do very well. That belief materialized as a 3.7 percent climb of the Nintendo stock yesterday, the highest in four months, although nowhere near the brief rise due to the mistaken belief that Nintendo was behind Pokemon GO...
