Square-Enix Announces 'Chaos Rings 3'

Square-Enix does a lot of business on mobiles with ports and remakes of some of their greatest hits of yesteryear, but once upon a time, they put out a bunch of original games, too. Of that assortment of games, the most well-known is probably the Chaos Rings series, a trio of titles developed by Media.Vision. The most recent release in the series, Chaos Rings 2 [$15.99 / $16.99 (HD)], came out in early 2012, and apart from a couple of promised updates and talk of a F2P spin-off called Chaos Rings Sigma, we've heard very little concrete information about any further games in the series. That is, until today, when Square-Enix announced via Famitsu that Chaos Rings 3 will be releasing this winter on iOS, Android, and PlayStation Vita...

'Flappy Bird' is Back… on Amazon Fire TV

It looks like when Flappy Bird developer Dong Nguyen announced that he was bringing his cult-hit game back in August, he wasn't fooling around. Here it is, just the first day of August, and a revamped version of Flappy Bird has arrived. The only catch is that it's only available on the Amazon Fire TV as of this writing...

Noodlecake Announces Their Latest Published Title, a Puzzler Called 'Joinz'

Noodlecake Games has just announced their latest published title, a casual puzzle game from Gamebra.in, a studio that comes from the Will.i.am school of naming, called Joinz. They're describing this as Tetris meets Threes [$1.99]. The idea is that this is an endless puzzle game, where blocks must be moved around to form the required shapes that are shown on the top of the game board. Each move that doesn't make a match spawns a new block on the board...

Luderia Shows Off Trailer for Upcoming 'Spooklands', Coming August 21st

Luderia Games has just released a trailer for their upcoming Spooklands, and have announced when you can play it: 3 weeks from today, on August 21st. This is a one-finger arena shooter, where tapping on the screen will fire in that direction, with a bariety of bullet types both 'normal' and odd. Shooting out glowing red boots is a thing that's quite possible in this game. Considering that enemies consist of various insectoids, perhaps that's the proper weapon to use...

'Sentinel 4: Dark Star' Has Been Submitted to The App Store

Remember the Sentinel series of tower defense games? There's Sentinel: Mars Defense [$0.99], Sentinel 2: Earth Defense [$0.99], Sentinel 3: Homeworld [$2.99], and finally, Sentinel 4: Dark Star which was just submitted to the App Store today...

'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...
