'Art of Conquest' MMO/RTS Hybrid Launches Worldwide on June 6th

We got to check out Art of Conquest back at GDC, and it looked like an interesting multi-genre hybrid of MMORPGs and real-time strategy. After a soft launch and beta test, Lilith Games is ready to announce that Art of Conquest will release worldwide on June 6th. The game will have you engaging in several different forms of action: there's base-building, but also going and conquering other lands and attacking other players' bases. You'll fight armies, raising troops and unleashing abilities in battle against opponents. And you can do this while exploring a world as your commander character...




One of the surprise platforming hits of last year had to be the particularly memorable and especially gross Eggggg [Free], from developers Hyper Games. Rather than use athletic jumping prowess or other such abilities, the protagonist to Eggggg used their vomit to propel them around the beautifully designed levels. It's a bit of a peculiar game mechanic, but after the initial difficulty curve it just clicks, and reveals itself to be one of the most charming and unique games in its genre on the App Store. While its initial $2.99 cost of entry was great value for the 21 levels within the game, the developers have made Eggggg the unbeatable price of free for the next week only...

'AdVenture Communist' Coming to Mobile, the Sequel to Kongregate and Hyper Hippo's 'AdVenture Capitalist'

Kongregate published Hyper Hippo's hit clicker AdVenture Capitalist [Free], and the people rejoiced. But what about a game for the worker? The history of all hitherto existing society is clickers. And with that, Kongregate and Hyper Hippo announce that Adventure Communist is coming to mobile. Yes, comrade, there will be bread and roses...and also clicking to earn lots of idle currency. Oh, and if you thought the only clicker you were going to play this year with potatoes was Spaceplan [$2.99], well, comrade, you were wrong just as the Mensheviks were. But enough Stalin, here's some art of the upcoming clicker:..

'Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow' Gets Animated Teaser and New Screenshots

Jam City is releasing a new Futurama game, Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow on mobile soon, and they've just released a new trailer featuring new animation and voice acting from the original cast. It features a pretty amusing Bender/Android joke. What's interesting is that they're saying there's new and "never-before-seen" animation, so some of the material for the game might be based around unused animation from the series' second run on TV? Hmm...

Magic the Gathering: Puzzle Quest [Free] continues to keep up with all the Magic The Gathering expansions, and today's update has brought the Amonkhet expansion to the very entertaining mobile game. Amonkhet is the 74th Magic expansion and the first in the Amonkhet block. As you might probably have guessed from the name, this expansion was inspired by Ancient Egypt. The MTG: Puzzle Quest version of the expansion comes with 155 new cards, including 10 Masterpiece cards...

A few months back, we wrote about the first trailer for the upcoming The Emoji Movie, the movie that will make a ton of money even if you think it shouldn't even exist. If you remember, the movie is about Gene, an emoji unable to consistently pull off the same face, which is anathema in the emoji world. The original reveal teased that Gene and his friends would have to venture across the apps of a teenager's phone, and now we know the reason why. As the new trailer reveals, Gene's inability to portray the intended emoji makes the teenager think that his phone is malfunctioning and decides to wipe it out, which means everything and everyone on the phone will be wiped out as well...

In early February we learned that Djinnworks would be taking on the sport of skateboarding with their popular Stickman aesthetic in a game called Stickman Skate Park. Then in late March, we got word that Stickman Skate Park had been renamed Stickman Skate Battle to put emphasis on its online multiplayer battling. Now, following a short beta test period, Stickman Skate Battle [Free] has arrived as of early yesterday. It offers a bunch of different parks to skate in, plus tons of unlockable characters and skate equipment. Check out the launch trailer to see Stickman Skate Battle in action...

Heroes Above: Sky Clash [Free], the casual, squad-based strategy game that mostly takes place across battling airships, has, well, flown out of beta and launched worldwide today. Heroes Above has you training and evolving various heroes as you strive to create the best squad you can. As is usually the case in games like this one, you get to pick from a variety of troop types as you try to customize the game to fit your play style...

Otto-Ville Ojala is someone whose name you should know, because Soccer Physics [Free] has been a tremendously popular game for years now. It's one of the great examples of the wacky physics sports genre that has seen countless imitators. But if you haven't played it, or if you have, then you might want to get on that right away. Ojala is quitting as an iOS game developer once his Apple developer membership expires on May 28th, which means all his games are going away. However, you can pick them up for free right now:..

The Soft-Launched 'Farm On!' Has You Managing Your Farm in Portrait Mode

It looks like mobile gamers really love farming, at least judging from all the farming games that have graced the platform. Farm On! is getting ready to join the club and hopes that it'll be able to stand out from the rest partly because of its focus on single-handed, portrait mode gameplay. As you can see from the trailer, the game will be mostly focused on the sowing-harvesting loop with plenty of crops, animals, and products to mess around with...

A Look Behind the Scenes of the Creation of 'Old Man's Journey', Launching this Thursday

The long and winding, ahem, journey of Old Man's Journey, which we've been following for the past year, finally comes to an end when the game hits the App Store this Thursday. This story-driven adventure has you traveling across beautifully-illustrated lands interacting with the environment and recalling the memories of the old man protagonist's life. While its main purpose is telling an emotional tale about reflection and redemption, the gameplay in Old Man's Journey involves an interesting mechanic that lets you literally move mountains as you manipulate the elevations in various depths of the environment to make a clear path forward for the old man. In case you aren't familiar with Old Man's Journey at all, check out the gameplay trailer below to see it in action...

'Art of Gravity' Physics Game From 'Zenge' Developer Releases in June

Mike Pawlowski announced Art of Destruction earlier this year, and he's got two pieces of news. One, the game has been renamed to Art of Gravity due to, well, another game releasing called The Art of Destruction [Free] on iOS. Considering that it too is a physics game, that would definitely lead to some confusion. But Art of Gravity is also a good name. Because you're using different perspectives of gravity to launch balls to destroy objects, it works just as well. ..

'Buy Somewhere' Is Like a Real-World Game of 'Monopoly', and You Can Apply for the Beta

Buy Somewhere is an upcoming game that lets you become a real estate tycoon in your own city, buying and selling actual locations including your house, the places you hang out at, or even famous landmarks. As you can see from the trailer below, the game can transform reality and turn it into a game; okay, maybe not exactly that, but it does use geo-location to let you experience the joy of becoming a real estate tycoon and the misery of having others steal your property...

Hearthstone [Free] is getting some pretty cool new features in the upcoming update, and Blizzard published a blog post today presenting two big ones. The first is the ability to complete quests in Friendly Challenges instead of just with randoms. We got a taste of this in the Friendly Feud event last year, and now we'll be getting this feature permanently. There are, of course, quests that can't be completed in Friendly Challenges, such as ones where you play against The Innkeeper or watching a match. This new feature should give players more reasons to play with friends, which is always a good thing in my eyes...

Warmer weather is upon us, summer is right around the corner, and the sun threatens to engulf us all. The means it's time to bust out the Pokemon Go [Free] again, and another event from Niantic is headed your way. Adventure Week will have you finding more Rock-type Pokemon, and their evolutions. So if you've been looking for your Pokemon to get more rock-hard than ever, this is the time to do so...

Guitar Learning Game 'Rocksmith' Soft Launches in Canada

Looking at the evolution of music games, Guitar Hero hit big, had a few spinoffs (like DJ Hero) and then Rockband became a thing where you could get friends together and play as the whole band. The "problem" with these games is they're definitely deep into game territory and even if you're a Guitar Hero master, that doesn't mean you have any idea how to play a guitar. Rocksmith changed all that, and instead of playing with a plastic toy guitar you played the game with an actual guitar, allowing you to learn the instrument in 60 days. Check out the original console release trailer:..

First Hands-On Video of 'Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm' Released

Cornfox & Bros. has shared the first gameplay video of the upcoming Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm. They're demoing the game at the upcoming Nordic Game event in Malmö, Sweden, but for those of us born in countries that aren't the home of some of the finest death metal ever made, the developers have shared some unedited footage captured straight from an iPhone 7 Plus. Take a look, y'all:..

If you don't read the musings of Shaun Musgrave around here, you're doing yourself a disservice by missing out on all the awards he gives out for things. While the highly coveted Most Spider-Mans of the Week award seems to get doled out the most, today's news is on the 2015 Golden Poncho award winner Demon's Rise [$7.99]. If you're unfamiliar, Golden Ponchos are handed out for the best original RPG's of the year, duh, and Demon's Rise, as well as its sequel, Demon's Rise 2: Lords of Chaos [$2.99] are great games. Shaun reviewed the original all the way back in 2015, mentioning that the game was lacking a bit of polish despite being an enjoyable experience with tons of replay value. Since then, the game has seen a lot of love from its developer, taking care of quite a few of the concerns laid out in the review...

The Upcoming 'Pocket Claw' Provides Claw Machine Fun, Without Draining Your Pockets of Quarters

I doubt I'm alone on this, but throughout my life I've definitely been guilty of dumping a dumb amount of quarters into claw machines to get stupid prizes I honestly don't even need. As an adult, through the marvels of the internet, I've since learned what an unbelievable scam these claw machines are... But, do you think that stops me from still playing them? Of course not, because I'm an idiot. The perfect compromise here is scratching the claw machine itch, on my phone, without spending tons of money for some sawdust-stuffed Spongebob. Well, there's where Pocket Claw comes in. Check out the trailer:..
