Action Platformer 'Ghoulboy' Gets New Trailer and Should Be Hitting Very Soon

Back in September we got a tasty first look at upcoming action platforming game Ghoulboy from developer Redro Games.

Blizzard Reveals Additional Details and Card Reveals From "Kobolds & Catacombs"

Blizzcon opened with a bang with Ben Brode taking the stage and revealing the next expansion for Hearthstone [Free], Kobolds & Catacombs. We already knew a few tiny snippets about it, like the single player vaguely roguelike dungeon crawl mode, but in the main Hearthstone panel, loads more details and cards were discussed. First off,

'GRID Autosport' Gets New Trailer Touting Its Mobile Features

It was way back in March that developer Feral Interactive announced that they'd be bringing a feature-complete version of Codemasters' hit 2014 console and PC racer GRID Autosport to the mobile platform, and it's been a painful wait ever since. While originally slated for a spring release, Feral delayed the mobile version of GRID in

'Card City Nights 2' Coming to Mobile on November 9th

I'm not typically a big fan of card battlers, but every once in a while one will grab a hold of me. Back in early 2014, the latest game to do that was Ludosity's Card City Nights [$0.99]. One thing that drew me to it was that its card battling mechanics were simple to understand

Blizzard Announced 'Hearthstone' Expansion "Kobolds & Catacombs" at Blizzcon

Just as expected, this afternoon during the opening ceremonies of Blizzcon, Blizzard announced the next Hearthstone expansion. It's called Kobolds & Catacombs, and it'll have 135 entirely new cards to open when it launches in December. Details are few and far between right now, but two big things are getting teased: Class-specific legendary weapons and

'Freeways', the Traffic Management Game from the Creator of 'Desert Golfing', Updated with iPhone Support

Sometimes I wonder if Justin Smith from Captain Games realizes his own genius when creating games, or if he just makes games that happen to be stunningly brilliant. One of my all-time favorite games is Enviro-Bear 2010 [$0.99], which is a silly game about a bear driving a car with absurdly difficult driving physics. Beyond

Zach Gage Announces 'Flipflop Solitaire'

Zach Gage is one of my favorite game designers because he's really good at taking really basic game concepts that you're already familiar with, like searching for words or playing chess, and adding a weird twist that makes the end result simply phenomenal. This was the case with Really Bad Chess [Free], SpellTower [$2.99], and

Check out the Launch Trailer for 'Sonic Forces: Speed Battle'

Watching Sega find its stride on the App Store has been fascinating, particularly when it comes to anything to do with Sonic. When endless runners hit so hard, it seemed like a Sonic game could be an unbelievably natural fit in that genre. Instead, Sega durdled around with Doodle Jump knock-offs and other weird stuff.
