Here’s another weekly round-up of news, previews, and features from Pocket Gamer, 148Apps, and the rest of our sister sites.
On our Youtube page, James Gilmour reviews the bullet hell shoot-em-up Blazefury, that makes its own mark by mixing the shmup style with the idle tapper genre. While not immediately compelling, the vibrant aesthetic and upgrading mechanics make Blazefury surprisingly enjoyable as a unique shooter.
Over on Pocket Gamer, Emily Sowden provides a rundown of the games that won at Apple Design Awards, the eclectic group of winners including the desert snowboarding Alto's Odyysey, touching romance Florence, artful puzzler Frost, grim platformer Inside, and the Viking charm of Oddmar.
Finally on 148Apps, Harry Slater lists some of the best action games to grace mobile; for gamers looking for exhilarating combat and tests of skill, titles like Wayward Souls, Severed, Infinity Blade 3, and more provide such action in spades.
