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

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.

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…
