Bounty Hunt is a free-to-play gunslinging duel in the wild west

Games set in the wild west are almost always a bit naff, with a few exceptions, most notably Sunset Riders and Red Dead Redemption. I'm yet to play Bounty Hunt, but the trailer looks really promising. It's a duelling game with a "flick fire" mechanic, Wi-Fi multiplayer, some cool weather effects, character customisation, and the ability to get new weapons as well as upgrading the ones you already have. Here's that trailer I mentioned earlier. Bounty Hunt is out now on iOS and Android, and it's free-to-play. [App Store link][Google Play link]…

Drift'n'Drive trailer reveals 4 person local multiplayer, 60fps play, and thumping soundtrack, has me shaking with anticipation

I love nothing more than a good arcade racing game, and it looks like Drift'n'Drive is shaping up to be a very good arcade racing game. It's a top-down racer where you fight through a pack of cars, avoid obstacles on the track, and use speed boosts to win championships. Gameplay mods and randomly generated tracks should keep things fresh, there are upgrades to be made to vehicles, there's single screen multiplayer for up to 4 people, it's a silky smooth 60 frames per second, and EDM artist Tommy Baynen (who's been featured on Armin van Buuren's ASOT, as well as contributing music to AG Drive) provides the soundtrack. I'm hyped, here's the trailer.…

In Reshape, all you need to do is rotate a square in the middle of the screen so that the triangles headed toward it connect all nice, and in turn create a larger square. It's a simple concept for a game, and though it starts off easy, things get faster as your score goes up, making things much harder. Reshape is available for free on iOS right now. Go take a look.
