Hellraid: The Escape is out now on Android, expectedly looks amazing

The Unreal Engine-powered survival horror puzzler Hellraid: The Escape is a very good looking game. I mean, it's totally gross in spots, and has an incredibly dark, dank, oppressive atmosphere, but its fidelity and the technical realisation of its horrific environment is spot on. And it's now out on Android. Huzzah!…

Hyper Cat features familiar arcade action, highscore chasing, and adorable kitty cats

Cycleplay's new auto-runner is called Hyper Cat, and it features cats in hats, trying to catch birds and generally (but futilely) try to reach the tops of the infinite trees they're scrambling up. The gameplay is definitely arcade-y and instant in feel: you tap on the screen to change which tree you're running up, avoiding hazards, very much like Timberman. Want in on the free-to-play feline fun? It's available now on iPhone, iPad, and Android. [App Store link] [Google Play link]…

Is Assassin's Creed - Identity the mobile Assassin's Creed game we've been waiting for?

I'll keep this brief: Ubisoft has just soft-launched Assassin's Creed - Identity in Australia and New Zealand. Unlike the card games and companion apps Ubisoft has served up to iOS gamers in the past, this fully 3D "action RPG" is a close to a full-blown Assassin's Creed game as we've ever seen on mobile. Like its console counterpart, the game lets you explore ancient cities, leaping from rooftop to rooftop before stabbing-up some unsuspecting nobleman. Watch our hands-on with the soft-launch version of Assassin's Creed - Identity below. You can download the game right now if you live in Australia or New Zealand. The rest of the world will have to wait until 2015 for the game to go glob…
