According to one game archivist, current game preservation efforts may not be properly equipped to archive recent and future games libraries....
Taking a classic game concept, giving it voxel graphics, and making it randomly generated and endless is exactly what Crossy Road [Free] did with the Frogger formula. And then Down The Mountain [Free] did it with the Q-Bert formula. And then Pac-Man 256 [Free] did it to Pac-Man. And then Shooty Skies [Free] did it
World of Tanks Blitz [Free] has been releasing updates quite frequently in recent months, and although not all of them are substantial, they do show that Wargaming.net intends to continue improving the popular multiplayer game. Update 2.10 has brought improvements to the newly-introduced Training Rooms, such as personal invites, team scores, and more. The update has
Euro 2016 is underway in France, and is guaranteed to turn the football mad among us into... well, even more football mad types, probably. While the tournament is getting no lack of television coverage, it's a sad fact of life that we can't be near a flatscreen every waking hour. [Read more]
Colin Lane, the twisted visionary behind Wrassling [Free] and a bunch of other fun fast-action games, is hard at work on a new game, Dunkers. Basically, think Wrassling meets Soccer Physics [$0.99] on the basketball court. You and an opponent will flail your arms about, trying to get the ball and go boomshakalaka on the
The first thing you'll probably notice about the upcoming Pirates War: The Dice King is it's whimsical, colorful art, but I think the game has plenty to offer besides good looks. The developers describe the game as a strategy game first and foremost that's plays like a Pirate-laden mix of Monopoly and Hearthstone. The game
The creator of Rop [$0.99] and Hocus [$0.99] has another stylish, monochrome puzzle game in the works. Voi is a take on tangram puzzlers, where you must move blocks around grids in order to get them to match the given sape. But where Voi mixes things up is that each shape you place reverses the
A couple of weeks ago, we checked out the gameplay trailer for Dawnbringer, an upcoming open-world action RPG that uses battle mechanics that are similar to mobile classic Infinity Blade. With Dawnbringer's launch looming next Thursday, developers Kiloo and Copenhagen Creators have released a brand new cinematic trailer giving us a glimpse into this game's
Turn-based tactical games have been definitely making a comeback on the App Store recently, with Warbits [$3.99] and Lost Frontier [$2.99] gaining plenty of acclaim. As good as those two games are, none of them has car combat, and that's where the upcoming Auto Warriors plans to step in and remedy such errors in their ways.
Santa Ragione, the developer of the fantastic Fotonica [$2.99], has announced an interesting new app set to release on June 16th. The Triennale Game Collection features 5 different experimental games by five different creators that were originally created for the Triennale museum in Milan. Santa Ragione is adapting them to mobile and releasing them in
Sources "familiar with the matter" have told Bloomberg that Tencent might have to fork over $9 billion to purchase Clash of Clans developer, Supercell....
Mika Mobile. I have a certain fondness and emotional connection to these guys. Back in 2011, I had just started my career as a mobile game critic. Working for a different site, I had the pleasure and privilege of playing and reviewing the Android version of Battleheart [$2.99] as one of my most early pieces
Never Alone: Ki Edition [$4.99] is a game that seems to set out to do at least two things. First and foremost, it's trying to deliver an atmospheric puzzle-platformer game. It mostly succeeds at that, though it certainly makes a few mistakes that we see fairly often in this sub-genre. Never Alone also seeks to
The App Store gods have been kind to my weird self this year, first with the gloriously twisted adventure tale of I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream, and now with another point and click adventure that is just wrapped in brutal art within a bleak world and some moral quandaries that leave you
Kairosoft, the extremely prolific developer of simulation games like Game Dev Story [$0.99], is almost as unpredictable with its release schedules as it is predictable with its game designs. One of its recent trends is releasing the Japanese versions of its games at the same time worldwide, something that obviously doesn't help much if you
While Level-5 isn't exactly a household name themselves yet, they've been involved in the development of many well-known titles. From homegrown franchises like Professor Layton, Yo-Kai Watch, and Inazuma Eleven, to collaborations like Dragon Quest 8 [$19.99] and Dragon Quest 9, they've gained quite a successful reputation over the years. They're no stranger to mobile
Every time one of Facebook's apps races up the App Store charts, there's usually a reason for it. For Messenger, it was because Facebook disabled the ability to respond to messages within the company's primary app, meaning anyone who wanted to keep in touch with friends and family that way needed the dedicated Messenger app. [Read more]
Hello, gentle readers, and welcome to the RPG Reload, the weekly feature where we add a piece to our banner with each game played. Each week, we take a look at an RPG from the App Store's past to see how it holds up in the harsh light of today. It's a chance to play
Faily Brakes [Free]has been one of my favorite endless high-score games since its original launch in February. Part of that is that it's fun and challenging to careen out of control with no brakes and deftly avoid running into trees, traffic, trains, and more as you cruise for that high score. The other part is
Paranormal Minis, an upcoming collaborative mobile game project from Ravenous Games and Bulletproof Outlaws, has a somewhat strange history, as we've covered here before. In a nutshell, the game was announced in 2013, then put on the shelf before getting a major design overhaul and going back into active development a year later. Then it
