The Witcher Battle Arena Review

The Witcher Battle Arena Review

The App Store has gone a bit MOBA mad recently. First we had Fates Forever, then Vainglory. Now we have a new pretender to the throne: The Witcher Battle Arena, a streamlined interpretation of the classic MOBA format featuring characters from the popular RPG series. But is it worth your time? Pocket Gamer's Matt Thrower reckons so. Check out the video above to learn why.  …

Hands-on with Hue, the super promising indie platform that's all about colour

Hands-on with Hue, the super promising indie platform that's all about colour

In Hue you control a little person wondering about on the screen, and you also control the colour of the backgrounds they're walking past. Why is that last bit important? Because by changing the colour from, say, red to blue, you'll reveal crucial pieces of the environment to help you progress past the various obstacles standing in your way. It's a very cool idea indeed, here it is in action.…

Fangs-on with Lamp and Vamp, where a vampire just wants some kip

Fangs-on with Lamp and Vamp, where a vampire just wants some kip

The people behind Mucho Party have a new game, and it's called Lamp and Vamp. In Lamp and Vamp you need to guide a vampire from its point of origin, all the way to its coffin, avoiding hordes of angry mobs along the way. It's impossible to get a bit of peace and quiet these days, isn't it? We saw Lamp and Vamp during the Very Big Indie Pitch at Pocket Gamer Connects in London, and grabbed some footage for you to have a peek for yourself. Lucky we used dedicated hardware to capture it, and not mirroring, eh? Because you wouldn't be able to see the main character. Because he's a vampire. … and you can't see vampires in mirrors. Oh suit yourself.…

Hands-on with DogBiscuit: The Quest for Crayons, where children's drawings build the universe of a ridiculously adorable cartoon dog

Hands-on with DogBiscuit: The Quest for Crayons, where children's drawings build the universe of a ridiculously adorable cartoon dog

While DogBiscuit: The Quest for Crayons is absolutely a game aimed squarely at children, that doesn't mean grown ups won't be able to appreciate its finer qualities. Take the eponymous hero, for a start. DogBiscuit is cute, expressive, and exceptionally well-animated. Then there are his mates, also named after tasty treats, the genius use of your kid's drawings to create the landscape, and the pleasantly paced story beats.…

Hands-on with Scapefall, the bleak action strategy game from Dark Realm Studios

Hands-on with Scapefall, the bleak action strategy game from Dark Realm Studios

Scapefall is all about a never-ending fictional war on Earth that continues to consume each side until one is obliterated by the other. It's not exactly what you'd call a "happy" or "optimistic" game. But it is pretty cool from what we saw at Pocket Gamer Connects, so here's a video of it in motion.…

Hands-on with Football Unleashed with Patrick Willis, in which James learns about the 'other' football

Hands-on with Football Unleashed with Patrick Willis, in which James learns about the 'other' football

We didn't have an American member of the team on-hand at Pocket Gamer Connects to play Distinctive Games' latest title Football Unleashed with Patrick Willis, but I think I pretty much nailed it. Not that the game's that fussed with reality: there's a special bonus item that shoots a bolt of lightning at your opponents, should the need arise. Here's what Football Unleashed with Patrick Willis looks like... [App Store link]…

Hands-on with Fugl, a soaringly beautiful flight game

I don't think it's unfair to say that Fugl is a gorgeous looking game. Everything here is created using voxels for a pixel-y look that's super striking. We saw Fugl at the Very Big Indie Pitch during Pocket Gamer Connects, and were so blown away by its beauty that we just had to grab a video of it to show you fine people. And here is that video.…
