GameSpire’s Grand Battle Royale is a new, PUBG-style free-for-all

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) was a runaway success in 2017, taking the premise of cult Japanese film Battle Royale and using it as the basis for a competitive shooter. A game genre was born overnight. Now Chinese developer GameSpire has thrown its hat into the battle royale ring, releasing Grand Battle Royale for the mobile. Unlike most PUBG-like games, Grand Battle Royale stands out visually. Instead of realistic graphics, the in-game world is a jumble of blocky pixels, like a landscape of Lego. The simple graphics of this Minecraftian world mean it shouldn’t be quite as memory intensive as more realistic MMO games, promising quick-fire antics with minimal lag. You s…

Hidden Gem of the Week: Dark Echo

Many horror games rely on jump scares and creepy atmosphere, but the stealth/horror/puzzle hybrid Dark Echo takes a different approach, instead conjuring horror from the unknown and unseen, through minimalist visuals and immersive audio. While other mobile games like Papa Sangre and The Nightjar have delivered gameplay through sound, Dark Echo melds visuals with sound; every level starts out with a black screen, your white footprints the only color amid the surrounding dark. Move forward and lines emanate in all directions, the sound of your footsteps visualized, bouncing off the walls and revealing the environment. Without sound, you are blind. Your goal is simply to find the exit. Howev…

Hidden Gem of the Week: Good Fences

Good Fences is an unasssuming little gem of a puzzler for iOS and Android, the kind you might not give a thought at a glance due to its simple aesthetic and mechanic that are hard to get across in screenshots.

Take a look at that screenshot below, that is Good Fences at its simplest. Every stage presents you with a shape, and it's your job to surround it with copies of that same shape. It's such a basic seed of a puzzle concept, where even a less-complex shape can prove to be a tricky prospect to surround due to how corners and sides might…
