We Have More Info on 'Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series'

As you probably know by now, the Marvel IP Telltale has been working on is Guardians of the Galaxy, and after getting a short teaser and no details, we got to hear a bit more about the series today. The series will be a brand new story and starts with the Guardians discovering an artifact of unspeakable power (probably a Baby Groot dancing toy). Each of the Guardians has his or her own reason for desiring the relic, and there's also an enemy - the last of her kind - who wants to get her hands on that relic. The story will take us from Earth to the Milano to Knowhere, and, of course, will be accompanied by the awesome soundtrack Guardians is known for...

'Typeshift' Is the Puzzle Game Zach Gage Has Been Teasing, It's Coming Next Week

We've been following mysterious teasers from game design mastermind Zach Gage all week now, the latest was posted just moments ago and once solved reveals that these teasers are a clever trailer for the game Typeshift, which is due out March 18th. (What's with games coming out on such strange days lately?) Zach's SpellTower [$2.99] is easily my most played word game on the App Store, so I've got no doubts that Typeshift won't be just as sticky...




'The Elder Scrolls: Legends' Hits the iPad on March 23rd, Android Tablets on April 4th

If you're tired of Hearthstone, or are just looking for another collectable card game in your life, The Elder Scrolls: Legends has been in beta for ... what feels like forever now. Well, per a post by Bethesda a few moments ago, the game is now officially launched on PC and will be released on the iPad on March 23rd. An Android tablet release will follow on April 4th. Just like the release of Hearthstone, the smaller-screen smartphone is delayed a bit more, and currently Bethesda is aiming for a June release for that...

Check Out the Official Trailer for 'The Big Journey' Ahead of Its Release Next Week

One of the games we were shown during GDC that made a pretty big impression on us was The Big Journey from Catfishbox and Armor Games Studio. Yes, the game stars an adorable squishy cat, so OF COURSE I was a big fan of it right off the bat, but beyond that this just looks like one of the most polished platforming games we've seen in some time. It also uses a tilting control mechanic that gave us Rolando vibes, and the squishiness of the cat and its ability to grow larger by gobbling up delicious dumplings also gave us some Leo's Fortune [$4.99] vibes. Basically, lots of vibes from lots of amazing games means we're pretty excited for The Big Journey. Ahead of its launch next week, Armor has sent along the game's official launch trailer, which is well worth watching with the sound cranked up...

NimbleBit to Release 'Bit City' on March 13th

Are you ready for some Bit City? Well, I hope so, because you're gonna get it quite soon. NimbleBit has announced a Monday, March 13th release for Bit City. NimbleBit is expanding from just building towers, death-laser-equipped space stations (rest in power, Tiny Death Star), and transportation networks, and now has you building a whole dang city for yourself. The classy Eric Ford has a preview of the game that will tell you everything you need to know...

'Stronghold Kingdoms' Has Soft Launched in Australia

A few days ago, we posted a GDC video of the upcoming Stronghold Kingdoms, and now the game has soft-launched in Australia, so here's your chance to check it out yourself. The game is an MMO version of the classic Stronghold series, so expect more of a Clash of Clans kind of game than the traditional castle-building gameplay of Stronghold. In the game, you get to build an online stronghold with strong defenses to protect it from other players while also besieging other players' castles. You can - of course - trade with factions and do all the other usual fare of games like this one...

Hey Canadians (and "Canadians"), 'NASCAR Heat Mobile' Just Soft Launched

Whether you're an actual Canadian or you've merely spent five minutes creating a Canadian iTunes account, a pretty neat looking racing game just hit Canada's App Store. It's called NASCAR Heat Mobile It seems like it's got a surprising amount of content, featuring all 23 NASCAR tracks, loads of famous NASCAR drivers, and even a Madden-like "Fan Zone" where you do things like build rides, hot dog carts, and other stuff for your race fans to enjoy...

'Smash Anarchy' Is a Hilarious-Looking Upcoming FPS Looking for Testers

Most FPS games are all about serious shooting and killing, but Smash Anarchy is definitely going a different way, and I like where it's heading. In this game, you have to protect the last coffee plant in the world, which is probably the most noble mission in the history of mankind if you ask me. But your mission won't be easy; you'll have to fight a crazy number of alien monsters obsessed with your coffee. Your weapon of choice is a fruit gun, because why not. As you can see from the trailer, the game looks really fun and quite colorful...

'rvlvr.' Features Over 15,000 Puzzles to Solve

The Frosty Pop Corps, fresh off the release of Puff. [Free], the Downwell-inspired high-score chasser, and Slap Shots! [Free], is set to release a new game, rvlvr., this April. The period is intentional and part of a planned "games ending with punctuation" trilogy along with Puff.; also the lowercase title looks a lot cooler than the uppercase one. The idea is that you have to rotate puzzle pieces around to form the shape indicated. Seems simple enough on its face, but it ain't gonna be easy to beat this one. Why? Because there are over 15,000 puzzles to play. Yeah, 15,000. No joke...

'Oh...Sir! The Hollywood Roast' Brings More Insult Combat This Spring

Vile Monarch and Gambitious last year released Oh...Sir! The Insult Simulator [$1.99], a game about comedic insult combat. It proved to be a hit among the YouTube crowd and was a multiplatform success. As such, the time has come for a sequel. Enter Oh...Sir! The Hollywood Roast, which now tries to bring the insult combat to thinly-veiled Hollywoood parodies. Check out the trailer, narrated appropriately enough by the dude who narrates the "Honest Trailers" series...

The Upcoming 'Float' Combines Zen With Survival

I'm always a fan of games that help you relax while still offering enough challenge, and the upcoming Float seems to hit the right balance between relaxation and challenge. As you can see from the trailer, you'll have to help the flower float across the levels without getting squashed, and the closer you tap to the flower, the further it will move. I like the animation and the colors of Float, and I'm pretty sure it's the kind of game that can easily be expanded in the future, which bodes well for replayability...

'Tiny Bombers' is an Endless 'Bomberman'-alike Coming March 23rd

Taking the core mechanics of Bomberman and making it endless and "Crossy Road-ified" isn't a new concept, as Blast Blitz [Free] showed us when it released last summer. But it doesn't mean the idea of an endless Bomberman should stop there, and Ahoy Games hopes to leave their mark on this genre mashup when they release Tiny Bombers later this month. Use bombs to clear your path and defeat enemies (while hopefully avoiding blowing yourself up in the process) as you can see how far you can get in an endless level. Check out the trailer for Tiny Bombers to see it in action...

Codemasters' Console Racer 'GRID Autosport' Is Driving Onto iOS Later This Year

Over the past few months, Feral Interactive have put together an impressive run of converting premium console releases to the smaller screen of the iPhone and iPad. Rome: Total War [$9.99 (HD)] brought the cult classic strategic conquering action to the App Store, and the sequel-cum-expansion Rome: Total War - Barbarian Invasion is set to launch on the iPad later this month. Despite this pedigree in the strategy genre, Feral are taking a sharp left turn with their next iOS port - today the London-based developers announced that Codemasters' GRID Autosport would be making the transition to mobile, as the complete experience from the previous PC and console release in 2014...

GDC 2017 - The Annual Look at 'Drifter'

Checking out the massive space game Drifter has felt like a GDC tradition for years now, and this year we did what we always do: Met up to get a look at what's new and exciting in the game. It's particularly interesting, as we've been keeping up on its progress since 2012. Drifter is still in the works, and just like previous years, it's looking better than it did in 2016:..

Just when you think every variety of match three has been done before, a clever developer comes in to prove you're wrong. Massive Match twists the genre around by actually turning a match three into a multiplayer game where many people are matching on the same board, to hit different and quickly rotating objectives. The concept seems super rad, check it out in motion:..

GDC 2017 - 'The Big Journey' Reminds Me of 'Rolando'

Rolando was one of the first games on the App Store that really felt like it could only work on a device like the iPhone, but the game has been defunct for years, leaving a giant hole in my heart. The Big Journey by Armor Games is tickling me in just the right way, totally reminding me of a fresh and modern spin on the Rolando formula. It's even going to be a premium game...

GDC 2017 - 'Infinite Defence' Is a Neat Vertical Tower Defense Game

I'm always game for anyone trying to take a fresh spin on the tower defense formula, and the developers of Infinite Defence aim to do that by making the battlefield a vertically scrolling area which expands as the game goes on, making you really plan ahead with how you build your (eventually) totally open-field tower defense strategies. Check out the game in action:..

GDC 2017 - 'Art of Conquest' is Lilith Games' MMO/RTS Hybrid

Lilith Games is bringing an intereting idea forth to mobile with Art of Conquest. The concept is that it's a game where you're fighting to control a continent, supporting your faction that's one of seven constantly vying for control. But what's interesting about the game is how some of the systems work. You'll be navigating a map as a character, traveling to different locations to fortify bases and conquer new locales, as opposed to just tapping on different spots on a map. Then in battle, while units are controlled automatically, you lay out their formation ahead of time, with different hero units as well as troops that can be deployed. Then, in battle, you can utilize hero abilities to help turn the tide of battle. Check out some of the game in action:..

GDC 2017 - 'Don't Trip' Is Just What I Love About Mobile Games

One of my favorite thing about mobile gaming is indie developers who just come up with incredibly unique (and often super crazy) concepts which... just work. In Don't Trip, you walk using your fingers and rotating your phone. It's an incredibly clever way to use all the sensors inside of your iPhone to make a super silly game. Take a look: ..

GDC 2017 - 'Battle Breakers' Is the Next Game From 'Infinity Blade' Creators Chair

While I'm sure there will be people out there who are disappointed that Chair's next game isn't Infinity Blade IV, they've recently soft launched Battle Breakers, and what we've seen so far seems pretty cool. Gameplay involves smashing gems, collecting characters, and progressing through all sorts of different challenges. Check out the game in action:..
