Over on Pocket Gamer, Clement Renaudin checks out the cooperative city-builder Pixel Plex (out now on iOS) and it’s uniquely multiplayer-focused designs, including mayor elections every two days.

Tre Lawrence on Android Rundown reviews the new fighter Tekken, particularly praising its detailed 3D graphics and controls well suited for touchscreens, simple to grasp but with additional depth through its card attack system.

And finally, Harry Slater on 148Apps provides an extensive retrospective on Rovio and their most well-known franchise Angry Birds, focusing on the factors that led to the company’ and series’ fall from the top of the charts, and where the two could be heading in the future.
