The Thursday Find - Super Sticky Bros

Thursday is upon us again, some of us are voting in a general election, and it's actually stopped raining where I am. Windows are open, shorts are on, so let's get this over and done with quickly so I can go play in the park. This week's Thursday find might not be the shiniest game on the App Store, but it is an interesting one. And sometimes that counts for a lot more than polish. As ever you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it. But Harry, you're no doubt weeping, you haven't even told us what the game is. Oh yeah, sorry about that. It is, of course... Super Sticky Bros Ostensibly this one's a platformer. It's pretty unwieldy when you first start playing, b…

GameSpire’s Dead Plague released on Android and iOS

Chinese developer GameSpire has released a new zombie action game on to the mobile market, hoping it’ll spread like the plague. Dead Plague takes place in the sun-bleached tropics, where the mysterious Research Centre (think Umbrella Corps) has released an un-deadly virus. Now, all the sandcastles have been squashed, the beach is all bloody and the locals aren’t so friendly. In steps BIOTECH to send you off on a risky retrieval mission – you’ve got to grab some samples of zombie DNA for the BIOTECH boffins to analyse. But they’re not just going to hand it over, are they? That’s the premise Dead Plague’s single-player campaign revolves around. You…

Here's everything you need to know about Monument Valley 2 for iPhone and iPad

Well that was a bolt out of the blue wasn't it? Monument Valley 2 didn't just get announced yesterday, it got released as well. And it's really rather special. Which obviously means it's time for some content. I thought it'd be a good idea to round up everything you need to know about the game in one handy place, so you're fully prepared for what's to come when you leap in. And you should leap in. Oh please leap in. Don't worry though, there aren't any spoilers here, because that would be a horrible thing to do.

Conquer fantasy kingdoms in Art of Conquest

Art of Conquest could very well be the mobile game fantasy and strategy fans have been waiting for. A real-time strategy game set in a beautiful fantasy world, Art of Conquest combines the best of MMORPGs, RTS, and base-building games to create something truly special. Art of Conquest sees players choosing from five races and joining one of six warring kingdoms before setting out to pave their own path. You’ll start with your own castle from which you can manage dozens of troops and heroes, build war machines, and maintain your defences. The real fun, though, lies in the art of exploration. Set out from your fledgling palace to see what the fantastical world of Nore has to offer. Y…

The Monday Musing - Which other Pokemon deserve their own spinoff game?

Well, Magikarp Jump is a game. It's quite a good game as well, so long as you don't mind playing games where you don't actually really do all that much. But it has stirred a thought deep within the recesses of my brain, and I have decided to release that thought onto the world. And I'm going to do it in the form of glorious, glorious content. This piece of content in fact. It's a list I like to call, what other Pokemon deserve their own standalone games. It seemed like a good idea when it first came to me, so I'm running with it. Agree? Disagree? Want me to write more posts that detail hypothetical games that fictional characters should become engaged in? Well let us know in the comments b…
