Telltale Games made a pretty big splash when the San Diego Comic-Con kicked off this week by announcing Season 2 of their Batman - The Telltale Series game, a third and supposedly final series of Walking Dead: The Game, and a long-awaited second season to the fantastic The Wolf Among Us. They weren't done though!
Ahead of the launch of Splatoon 2 this Friday for the Nintendo Switch, the Nintendo Switch Online [Free] companion app is now live. It's a super quick download, and seems to seamlessly link to your Nintendo account... But (as of this writing) it doesn't seem to do a whole lot yet. I can sort of
Solitaire is one of the most beloved and most played video games in history, thanks in large part to the Windows operating system. When mobile gaming became a thing with the arrival of smartphones, there was never any shortage of Solitaire games to choose from. Perhaps TOO many, to be honest. With a genre that's
Tinytouchtales first announced Miracle Merchant way back in September of last year. It was originally an early prototype of what became the excellent Card Thief [$1.99], but even after Card Thief went in a different direction Tinytouchtales wanted to finish of the prototype into a smaller-scope full game. He teamed up with Thomas Wellman for

Last November Feral Interactive made a lot of fans happy when they brought their critically-acclaimed PC strategy game Rome: Total War [$9.99 (HD)] to the iPad. Strategy gamers had been asking for a mobile port for quite some time, and their iPad version delivered the goods. Of course, Rome: Total War on PC has received
To The Moon [$2.99] may feel like a relatively recent release in iOS terms, as Freebird Games' beloved adventure title only made the transition to mobile in May of this year. However, To The Moon dates back to 2011, and has since become one of the reference points for the emotive power of certain indie
I've seen some pretty strange premise for games, but Corporate Salmon really takes the cake (or takes the cod, if you will). The title doesn't lie - the protagonist of the game is quite literally a sentient salmon, who is determined to climb the corporate ladder through any means possible. In the game, such means
It takes a lot to distinguish auto-runner games on the App Store, and even when developers try and shove in gimmicks and meticulously designed levels, it's hard not to be cynical that any such title isn't just yet another derivative effort. At first glance, Gummy Heroes looks to follow the well-worn blueprint for 2D mobile
Hello, gentle readers, and welcome to the RPG Reload, the regular feature where we're either playing gods or slaying gods. This week, we're filling in the next chapter in our RPG Reload Glossary look at the history of action-RPGs. One of the messier and less-satisfying genre labels around, the action-RPG had already taken many forms
There are brutally difficult platformers like Super Meat Boy, and then there's developer Cat Nigiri's Necrosphere which looks like it enters an entirely different level of pain. It's a Metroidvania-style platformer that has you exploring huge levels trying to negotiate your way around a plethora of hazards all of which will kill you in an
The event will likely be the stage where Samsung announces the Note 8.

The fine folks at Milkbag games have released Sidewords. A fun little diversion of a word game that is the devil child of crosswords and scrabble. For each level in the game the grid must be completed to win the level — this means that each letter at the top and side must be used. Show More Summary

I've been pretty excited for Part Time Monkey's upcoming game Silly Walks ever since first posting about it last month, and a lengthier gameplay trailer released a few days later has only intensified my need to play this silly game. Well that moment is moving ever closer as today the developer has announced that Silly
In January of last year FDG Games and SHD Games released an unassuming little sniper game called Lonewolf [Free] to the App Store. While the sniper genre had been absolutely oversaturated on mobile, Lonewolf managed to stand out from the pack with its unique noir-inspired visuals and an emphasis on telling an interesting story, which
With the upcoming Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion on the horizon and the existing metagame getting a bit long in the tooth, Blizzard has been up to all sorts of exciting things to keep people playing Hearthstone [Free]. Previously, we celebrated the Midsummer Fire Festival which had Ragnaros awarding us double coins for all
One of my favorite parts of writing about mobile games is seeing certain titles develop from a basic core idea at their genesis, to detailed, complex and action-packed completed products after months of intensive development - and a number of overly ambitious missed release dates. Golem Rage is one such game, and since its debut
