Hands-on with Lion Pig, where the hero is inexplicably a lion and a pig, and why that's okay

Hands-on with Lion Pig, where the hero is inexplicably a lion and a pig, and why that's okay

Leaving aside the biology of how a pig and a lion might meet, fall in love, and create this curious cross-breed, Lion Pig is a really well made platformer. Its visuals remind me of Master System classics, the animations of the lead character are excellent, and everything is reminiscent of a straightforward but high quality DOS platformer. Take a look. The game's out now if you fancy getting it yourself. [App Store link]…

Castle Master 2 is out now on Android, comes to iOS this October, brings with it 600 person battles

If you're an Android user then you can now download Castle Master 2. It's a hack and slash role playing game in which you team up to with friends from around the world to form clans, and then head out online to vanquish foes in huge 300 vs 300 player battles in massive dungeon runs. It sounds absolutely nuts, and I can't wait until it comes out on iOS so I can try it myself.

Hands-on with Maria the Witch, the free-to-play 2D flight game from the maker of Gekido

Maria the Witch is a 2D action / flight game that reminds me a lot of Retry out of Rovio Level 11. But there's a bit more to Maria the Witch from the off, from what I've seen so far. It's really really hard, and I think that's going to trip some people up on it, but it also handles really well, with most mistakes feeling like you made them. The game's out now, here's my hands-on, let me know what you make of it yourself. Want to give it a go for yourself? Download links are below. [App Store link][Google Play link]…

8 terrifyingly dangerous sharks from Hungry Shark Evolution

In Hungry Shark Evolution you're a big shark that swims around an ocean, trying to eat anything and everything that comes into your line of sight. People have captured videos of themselves doing exactly this via the Everyplay functionality the developer has included, and from these videos I've determined the 8 most dangerous creatures that swim its seas. Titanically Large Shark eats whole boats Shark With A Jetpack doesn't even need you to go back in the water Shark With A Jetpack And A Monocle is such a sir that he'll eat Santa and get away with it Rebel Shark just will not play by the rules, man Robot Shark completely ignores Asimov's rules of robotics Sweary And Loud Shar…

Bee Brilliant is a match-3 puzzler with quite possibly the best theme song ever

Are you ready for barbershop quartet awesomeness? I really don't think you are, because this level of barbershop awesomeness is pretty much unprecedented. Bee Brilliant is a new puzzler that's made by Tactile Entertainment (them what did Skyline Skaters and Chasing Yello) and it looks just lovely. It's a match-3 puzzler with a colourful, cheerful aesthetic, and I'm sure it'll make the company a billion dollars. But what caught my eye... well... ear actually... is the theme tune for the game, which you can hear right now by clicking play on the video below. Want to give Bee Brilliant a try? Here's the link to the App Store, where the game is free-to-play. [App Store link]…
