Hands-on with Monsu, the auto-runner featuring devilishly compulsive collectible cards

If you're not yet completely sick of auto-runners, then you're in luck: there's a new one from Boomlagoon that's rather fun indeed. Monsu is the titular hero, and as well as avoiding chasms and bouncing on foes while running left to right, you'll also be nabbing collectible cards along the way to help you in your quest. Here's my quick hands-on with the game.…

Hands-on with Hitman: Sniper, Square Enix's long-range assassination sim

We got our first glimpse of Hitman: Sniper at this year's E3, where Peter was able to sit down with a nice man from Square Enix and watch him run through a level or two. As of a few hours ago, the game is now live in the Canadian App Store, meaning anyone from The Great North with an iPad and an itchy trigger finger can download the game and start picking off Russian gangsters with cold detatchment. This is a soft-launch build of the game, so elements of the experience may be tweaked before it goes global. Those of you outside of Canada should check out my hands-on video above to see what Hitman: Sniper has to offer.…

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!…

TGS 2014: Hands-on with Space Pirate Popet, the super-cute animal matching chain-maker

Generally speaking, match-three puzzlers focus on a single variable: usually colours, sometimes shapes. Space Pirate Popet, on the other hand, lets you match tiles by both colour and animal type. What's more, you can mix and match the two, allowing to create uber chains filled with blue dogs and pink giraffes and other psychadelic bestial creations. Take a look at our Tokyo Games Show hands-on above.…

TGS 2014: Hands-on with Rad Boarding, the mountain surfing, lava-dodging trickfest

When we attended the Tokyo Games Show a few days back, we got the chance to try our hands at a whole heap of unreleased - and largely unheard of - mobile games. Among the pile was Rad Boarding, an impressive looking endless-surfer which puts an emphasis on speed and style. It also throws a massive, sinister bear into the background from time to time, which definitely didn't creep us out one little bit OH JESUS WHAT WAS THAT SOUND oh it's just a door slamming nevermind anyway watch the vid above.…

Sometimes mere words fail you. Today is one of those days, so let me stick to the facts; Hulk Hogan has been added to Crazy Taxi City Rush, and you can hire him as an unlockable driver, and there's now a trailer showing this, and I think I need to go have a lie down.…

However, there's a new movie coming which even fewer people asked for than the Angry Birds movie, and that's the Tetris movie.  No, I am not joking. Yes, it is a bit silly, isn't it.

If you played Inferno+ you're probably very excited indeed to hear that there's a new game in the series out in the neon wilds. I went hands-on with Inferno 2 to take a quick look at what's on offer in this arcade-y twin stick shooter. What I found was intense action, whip smart level design, and a deep levelling system.

Hands-on with The Adventures of Bertram Fiddle, the very British murder-mystery sleuth-'em-up

Though we saw many games at EGX 2014 last week, The Adventures of Betram Fiddle was the one which made us smile the most. This is partly due to the game's quirky cartoon art style and cute Victorian setting, but mostly because this point-and-click adventure tells its tale of a very British explorator investigating murders in London with its tongue firmly in its cheek. Pocket Gamer's Mark Brown introduces us to the basics of Bertram Fiddle in the video above. …

Hands-on with Overkill 3, the cover shooter where you take cover and shoot

Overkill 3 is a videogame with guns and men in it. If you fire the guns in Overkill 3 at the men in Overkill 3, the men in Overkill 3 fall over. Sometimes these men don't get back up again because they are dead. Other times they look like they are dead, but they are not dead, they're just pretending to be dead. When this happens, you must fire your gun at them a second time until they stop pretending to be dead and become actually dead. Then a helicopter appears and points happen and sometimes I don't know why I even bother.…
