Galak-Z Variant Mobile brings the frenetic space shooter to iOS and Android

Galak-Z Variant Mobile brings the frenetic space shooter to iOS and Android

Originally released in 2015 for PC and PS4, Galak-Z Variant Mobile, as the name suggests, is a modified port designed to work for touchscreens, letting mobile gamers enjoy Galak-Z's evasive combat and relentless enemies, both mechanical and alien. Perhaps the most critical aspects of Galak-Z that seperates it from other hectic shoot-em-ups is its combination of stealth and transforming mech actions. Enemy ships have line of sight and your ship makes different amounts of noise based on movement, so you can flank enemies and ambush them from behind for extra damage or just hide to avoid a particularly tough foe you can't defeat yet. Or you could transform into your mech form to deflec…

Hidden Gem of the Week: Super Arc Light

Hidden Gem of the Week: Super Arc Light

Super Arc Light's premise couldn't be more simple: there's a base in the center of the screen, there's a single turret guarding the entrance's perimeter, and there's an endless wave of geometric enemies approaching. It's a formula as old as Space Invaders, presented here in a slick minimalist style, colorful rounds contrasting against the stark black-and-white battleground. There are no extra modes to unlock, no alternate difficulties, nothing to upgrade. Super Arc Light is pure distilled shmup action. Your turret automatically travels around the base's circular entrance; holding down slows time and fires, while letting go reverses the direction of your rotation. Once you get a feel for t…

Ironhide Studios reveals their next tower defense entry, Kingdom Rush Vengeance

Ironhide Studios reveals their next tower defense entry, Kingdom Rush Vengeance

When it comes to tower defense on mobile, the Kingdom Rush series has been at the forefront since the first game's launch in 2011. Vengeance is the latest entry, revealed earlier with a short but vibrant teaser. The teaser doesn't showcase any gameplay, but the signature cartoony aesthetic is certainly returning. The trailer takes us through a number or environments, from scenic villages to icy rivers, treasure-filled dungeon tunnels to dark forests. But the biggest hint of changes in this entry is the omnious figure that graces the trailer's final shot and the tagline of "Join Vez'nan's army!", possibly teasing that we'll be playing as the bad guys in Vengeance. Kingdom Rush Vengeance d…

Solve tricky logic puzzles in The Sequence 2, releasing on iOS next month

The Sequence 2 is an abstract logic-based puzzler in the vein of games like SpaceChem and Perfect Paths, challenging you to construct elaborite Rube Goldberg-esque mechanisms that work in harmony to transport inputs to a waiting output. Your goal is simple: manuever a red circles across the hexagonal grid to an exit tile. But that's not so easy when you need to do so by synchronizing numerous nodes to work together to move those circles through the tight map, not just once but in repeatable cycles that don't stall mid-loop.  The nodes you place have various functions, from pushing or pulling circles to rotating their position. Combining those functions allow you to methodically…
