Drive with style in minimalist arcade racer Absolute Drift, coming to iOS and Android this year

In the vein of games like Jet Car Stunts, Absolute Drift doesn't pit you against other racers but rather your own skills and challenging tracks. As the name suggests, it's all about drifting: duration, smoothness, chaining them together, and pulling off stunts in a minimalist playground of routes and jumps. Absolute Drift starts out simply, easing you into drift-based gameplay. Simply shaving seconds off time trails isn't enough; for the best scores, you'll need to pull off fluid elegant drifts, painting the white roads and environments with the curving streaks of your tires. Modulating the speed and angle of your car is paramount to mastering drifting, especially when you shift from race…

Colorful puzzler Nano Golf is Nitrome's newest release on iOS and Android

Nitrome's bread and butter has always been its quirky interesting puzzlers and arcade games, and their newly published game Nano Golf looks to continue that trend. With each course being a tight mini-puzzle and with only a limited number of strokes, this golf puzzler brings varied physics-based golf challenges to iOS and Android. Nano Golf's vivid pixel art courses start off relatively simply, not much different than commom mini golf stages with hills and windmills. But then speed boosting areas get introduced, with myriad other mechanics to follow, from golf carts chasing behind your ball to portals and switches and ghost copies of your ball and spikes and much more. While you might be a…

Letters become puzzle pieces in minimalist physics puzzler Supertype

Letters become puzzle pieces in minimalist physics puzzler Supertype

Kamibox has been releasing an array of clever minimalist puzzlers over the last few years, between Zip-Zap, Cmplt, and others, and that trend looks to continue with the reveal of Supertype. The letter-based puzzler might also be the developer's most unique concept yet. Visually, Supertype may seem similar to games like Super Sharp and Sugar Sugar - manipulating objects to reach certain collectibles on each stage - but mechanically, its alphabet system looks wholly original. Rather than dragging blocks or slicking shapes and ropes, Supertype asks you to type letters onto the stage, which then physically interact with the environment. As demonstrated by the trailer, narrow Ls fall through g…

Special update to celebrate Lineage 2: Revolution passing 100 days since its launch

Lineage 2: Revolution was only launched last year, but players have already managed to rack up over 170 million hours of play. That’s a hell of a lot of hacking and slashing, levelling up, grinding for gear and creating clans. To mark 100 days since its release, the latest entry into the South Korean MMORPG franchise recently received an update. It’s a little thank you from developer Netmarble Games. The update features two new events to take advantage of. Firstly, the Equipment Substat Change is a shiny reward for players who change their equipment substats before 13 March. Successfully change yours at least one, and you’ll get a mailbox full of red diamonds – 200…

Hidden Gem of the Week: Toast Time

Hidden Gem of the Week: Toast Time

Beneath Toast Time’s absurd premise of toast-shooting warrior against time-stealing inter-dimensional enemies lies a hectic arcade game with controls and action designed to suit mobile perfectly. Reminiscent of Super Crate Box, Toast Time’s action revolves around a pool of different weapon types, tight arenas, and projectile-changing crates to grab. One touch controls combat and movent, as each shot fired propels in the opposite direction; these simple mechanics allow for varied scenarios as walls, platforms, and special items like jump pads get added to the arenas and forcing you to make more precise shots. You could fire randomly, but for the best scores, you’ll need t…

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…
