The Android JRPG love-in continues with Heavenstrike Rivals

The Android JRPG love-in continues with Heavenstrike Rivals

The now and future king of JRPGs, Square Enix, has gone ahead and made my Christmas dreams come true by announcing a brand new mobile JRPG IP in Heavenstrike Rivals. Heading to both Android and iOS for free this winter, Heavenstrike Rivals is a tactical RPG built from the ground up with mobile in mind. There'll be tappy tactical battles, PvP, over 200 characters to fight with, and a dramatic plot revolving around a pack of monsters trying to destroy a peaceful aerial kingdom. Add in music and characters designed by Final Fantasy alumni Ryoma Ito and Ryo Yamazaki of Tactics Advance and XIV respectively and it looks like we'll have a serious JRPG on ou…


Peter Molyneux's controversial F2P god game Godus arrives on Android, both versions receive new social doodads

Peter Molyneux's controversial F2P god game Godus arrives on Android, both versions receive new social doodads

After a few months of waiting, Godus is now out on Android devices, bringing Peter Molyneux and 22cans' vision of what a modern god game should be to Google Play. If you somehow missed the original release on iOS (and PC), Godus is a divisive building and management game that asks you to sculpt the land, gain followers, and directly influence the direction of your little populace. Pretty much everyone agrees that it looks the part, but the free-to-play aspects have reportedly put some noses out of line. This Android version is the very latest build and includes all updates and improvements made to the title thus far, including all the challenges from the Frontier Age. Both this and the iOS…

Worms 3 gets Christmas update, Santa now delivering festive air strikes

Is there anything more embarrassing to a gamer than having your last Worm poked off a cliff edge by another Worm? Yes: having your last Worm poked off a cliff edge by a Worm wearing a ridiculous Christmas hat. Or perhaps blithely tripping over (and setting off) an explosive Christmas Pudding Mine. Getting Air Striked by Kris Kringle would turn your face pretty red too. All of which is now 100% more likely to happen, now that Team17 has given Worms 3 a Christmas update, which you can see in the gameplay video below. Get Worms 3 on iOS or Android via the links below.

Proun+ Review

Review Engine Software By James Gilmour, 2 weeks, 3 days ago
Proun+ Review

Some racers are fast. Some are beautiful. Some have banging soundtracks and a selection of entertaining modes. But few have all these elements - especially on iOS. Against all the odds, however, Proun+ delivers all of the above strengths in a single, scintillatingly arty package. Pocket Gamer's Harry Slater loved it, and you find out why by checking out the video review above.…

Yet another Kemco RPG - Revenant Saga - is released for Android

In a move that surprised absolutely no one, Kemco has announced yet another JRPG for Android. What did we tell you about the best JRPGs hiding on Android? Revenant Saga follows the story of Albert who agrees to participate in a trial experiment in order to save his parents from a deadly plague. Obviously there's a little bit more to it than that - this is a JRPG we're talking about - but we won't be the ones to spoil it all for you. Check out the trailer below to get a load of that awesome 3D battling and, if you like what you see, head on over to Google Play. [Google Play link]…


Offroad Legends 2 Review

Review Dogbyte Games Kft. By James Gilmour, 2 weeks, 3 days ago
Offroad Legends 2 Review

Trials has a lot to answer for. Since the re-emergence of the popular 2.5D stunt racer there have been many similar games released to capitalise on its popularity. Offroad Legends took the Trials formula, swapped out the stunt bike for hefty 4x4 trucks, and added a few explosions for good measure. Now the sequel has arrived, and Pocket Gamer's Harry Slater has delivered his verdict. Check out of the video above to hear it.…

The 4 worst Fail Hard fails, and 4 best Fail Hard wins

The 4 worst Fail Hard fails, and 4 best Fail Hard wins

When you fail hard in Fail Hard, you fail hard. But the flipside of this is that any victories, demonstrations of skill, or general signs of competence are met with hushed reverence or whooping excitement. I think this is best demonstrated via these replays I've found on Everyplay. Let's start with the bad replays, the ones that make you think “hey, you actually might be a danger to yourself in real life if you're this bad at Fail Hard. That's a pretty terrible start... … but that's a worse start. You know you've messed up bad when you wind up in a bin... … and you've got to screw up real bad to break the game entirely. These last four are actually pretty…

Touch Racing 2 has had a silly amount of downloads on iOS, and it's now out on Android too

Touch Racing 2 has had 2 million downloads on iOS. That's a lot of downloads. Which is fair enough, because the game's pretty darn solid. There are loads of modes and tracks, tons of upgrades and cosmetic tweaks, and strong touch-based controls - all of which you can see in our hands-on video of an earlier iOS build. Fancy taking Touch Racing 2 out for a spin? Grab it via the links below the trailer. [App Store link][Google Play link]  …


The people behind Plunder Pirates hired a galleon, filled it with nerds, and had a #PlunderParty

The people behind Plunder Pirates hired a galleon, filled it with nerds, and had a #PlunderParty

New York Comic Con may be a hazy memory for some, with sepia-tinted scenes of meeting the stars of geekdom and hanging out with their fellow nerds. For some, the memories are probably even hazier. Like some of the Midoki lot, probably, as they threw a massive party at the event for their latest game Plunder Pirates, on a galleon bedecked in a jaunty pirate theme, no doubt replete with bass cannons. They captured some of this #PlunderParty on film and put it out there for all to see / be massively jealous they didn't get an invite. Plunder Pirates is out now, for free, on iOS.

Shoot explosive fluffy creatures out of your crossbow in Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath out now on iOS

Shoot explosive fluffy creatures out of your crossbow in Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath out now on iOS

Possibly the most critically acclaimed yet least remembered title ever, Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath, has been ported to iOS. We'd consider it a strange move considering it was built from the ground up for consoles if it just didn't look so damn good. It's been remastered, you see, and the controls, which have been tweaked for touchscreens, are fully configureable. Oh, and you can also use any old iOS-compatible games controller you have lying around. What we've gathered from looking at the trailer below is that this could easily be the definitive version of Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath yet, and it will be hitting Android "very soon". Head on over to the App Store to [download] it n…

4 Cut the Rope cakes you can make at home that will make you shout 'Om Nom nom' through mouthfuls of delicious baked loveliness

Om Nom is undoubtedly one of my favourite characters in gaming: the cute eyes, adorable mannerisms, and our shared love of eating sweets makes me want to reach into the game and give him a big hug whenever I fail him by managing to screw up a level. The fact that people on the Internet have decided to make cakes based on this hero of Cut the Rope fills me with joy, and I think it'll do the same for you too. So if you're feeling in a creative mood, you'll definitely want to check out the stellar work by superstar YouTubers CakesByChoppA, iHasCupquake, Abe's World, and cakezonepl below.

Play The Witcher on iOS... in digital boardgame form

It would be pretty unrealistic to expect CD Projekt's Red's exhaustively deep and visually fetching RPG The Witcher to appear on iOS in its original form. So, instead of trying to cram a massive third-person RPG onto mobile, the developer has decided to adapt another Witcher-flavoured property for touchscreens: The Witcher Adventure Game. It's out right now, so we suggest you take a look at the trailer above and see what you think. [App Store link]…


Apple's new 'Gamers' video - featuring Vainglory - gives me The Feels

Apple's new 'Gamers' video - featuring Vainglory - gives me The Feels

There's a brand new ad for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus talking about how it's got that fancy new chip in it, and how games will look better than ever on it. It highlights the rather wonderful looking Vainglory, as Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake get ever-deeper into the complexities of the new MOBA's gameplay, for comedic effect. And you know what? It's a very good advert. We do all sometimes get obsessed by the nuances of our games, and I love that mobile gaming has reached a point where they're complex, rich, and detailed enough that people can get obsessed by those nuances, whether it's Vainglory, or The Sailor's Dream, or Clash of Clans, or whatever else it is you love to take wi…

Tiny Realms update brings unit traits for each faction, we have the cheat sheet revealing all the details

Tiny Realms is, hands down, one of my favourite games of 2014 so far, and continues to be by far and away the best new strategy game on mobile. It's awesome, and part of its awesomeness is that it's continually evolving. The latest update brings with it specific traits for each unit of each faction in the game, further developing the already deep yet accessible strategy management gameplay. The Battlegrounds mode has also been further balanced, and inviting friends to play with you is a bit easier now too. We've just been sent a fresh gameplay video showing the traits off, focusing on the Steam Knights, Golems, Bear Cavalry, Mammoths, Bog Hunters, and the Shambling Mass. If you need more i…
