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.…

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.

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.…

Hyper Cat features familiar arcade action, highscore chasing, and adorable kitty cats

Cycleplay's new auto-runner is called Hyper Cat, and it features cats in hats, trying to catch birds and generally (but futilely) try to reach the tops of the infinite trees they're scrambling up. The gameplay is definitely arcade-y and instant in feel: you tap on the screen to change which tree you're running up, avoiding hazards, very much like Timberman. Want in on the free-to-play feline fun? It's available now on iPhone, iPad, and Android. [App Store link] [Google Play link]…
