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 does a hands-on preview of the new puzzler The Eyes of Ara. A port of a 2016 PC game, Eyes of Ara is reminiscent of The Room 3, presenting you with a mysterious mansion to explore and solve tactile puzzles.

Over on Pocket Gamer, Kieran Robertson previews the upcoming Holedown, the next arcade game from the creator of Twofold Inc and Rymdkapsel. A new variant of the brick-breaker, Holedown challenges you to ricochet balls off numbered tetromino pieces, each bounce subtracted from the piece's number. 

Finally on 148Apps, Campbell Bird lists his favorite games of 2018 so far, from the unique physics and tricky puzzles of Tiny Bubbles to Oddmar's charming visuals and challenging platforming.
