The Witcher Battle Arena Review

Review CD Projekt RED S.A. By James Gilmour, 1 year, 10 months ago
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

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.…
