Everything that’s new in Creature Quest's anniversary update

Since launching last year, Creature Quest, the colourful RPG-come-trading card game, has been addicting players with its blend of creature collection and map exploration. All the while its developer VC Games has kept the improvements coming with regular updates. Here's what players have to look forward to as part of its latest anniversary iteration. Two new gameplay features add a hands-off element to make grinding less taxing. Auto-pickup collects the loot on exposed quest maps for you, whilst auto-battle does what it says on the tin – your creatures take control of the fight. Of course, if you prefer the manual approach, you can use these features sparingly or not at all. Up to you.…

Dungeon defense receives an action movie twist in Forgive Me My Henchmen, coming to iOS and Android

Forgive Me My Henchmen takes the classic action plot - wronged hero on an one-man army rampage through countless foes - and lets you play the other side of that story, a satrica lane defense strategy game that pits you in control of the henchmen and their base’s defenses. Similar to the classic Dungeon Keeper titles, Forgive Me My Henchmen presents your base in 2D pixel art and provides an array of bad guys and obstacles to place in the path of the rampaging hero. Simple grunts as fodder, doors to slow his approach, explosives to deliver damage, posters to boost morale, even special units like Janitors...all strategically positioned to work in tandem and overcome the hero.  A…

Tower Fortress fans looking for more upward-driven action may want to keep an eye on Hellbreaker, a new vertical roguelike platformer headed to iOS and Android this year. Placing you in the demon-killing shoes (and mutated arm) of the warrior Arok, Hellbreaker challenges you to escape a randomly generared hell, navigating vertically through a gauntlet of beasts, traps, and bosses. Obliterating your way through this eldritch prison may be harder, but doing so while chaining together combos and avoiding damage is the true test; as you progress upward, selected perks let you modify Arok‘s abilities as well as unlock the power of your projectile-firing demonic form, all to a back drop o…

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. This geometric brain-teaser takes a very simple concept and wrings over a hundred challenges of shape placing and rotating out of that central mechanic. 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…

Hidden Gem of the Week: Ending

Aaron Steed's Ending is a minimalist roguelike stripped of all the fluff and filler, exposing a challenging game of life and death decisions and strategic planning, where one wrong move can destroy you. Inspired by chess and board games, Ending casts you as a lowly @ sign, in a maze of dangerous ruthless enemies. Each symbol moves in a specific way or has a special purpose, from moving two spaces in a turn to only being able to attack from a certain direction or firing projectiles. When you move, they move, and one hit is enough to destroy you...or for you to end them. There in lies Ending's strategic gameplay: it's a game where every move must be considered, where you need to think five…

Hidden Gem of the Week: Blackbar / Greyout

Sometimes it can be easy to forgot the power of words can play in games. Often words are merely relegated to mere UI indications or the names of cool new loot. Dialogue, flavor text, and logs of lore remind us of their importance, while the text adventures and 80 Days of gaming show us how effective well-crafted prose can be But outside of text adventures and word games, fewer still focus on blending the words themselves with the gameplay. Perhaps the most recent examples I can think of are Device 6's use of text to mirror the described environment and Type Rider's platforming journey through the history of typography. Blackbar and Grayout are two word games that use their text to tell thei…

Legend of Coin is a new coin pusher game with a twist

Tokyo-based developer Prope Games launched its latest mobile game, Legend of Coin, in December last year. The unusual coin pusher was developed by former Sonic The Hedgehog programmer Yuji Naka, but don’t expect any lightning-quick hedgehogs to pop up. Monsters on the other hand...   The game centres on your standard arcade coin pusher. You have a shelf of jumbled silver pennies, nudged by a ‘broom’. Use the touch controls to throw more coins on the shelf, eventually shunting those nearest off and into your bank. But at the top of the screen is a little combat arena, where a creature is ready to take you on. To join the fight, you’ll need monsters. Monsters dro…

Meteorfall is a quirky roguelike card battler headed to iOS and Android on January 25th

  Meteorfall isn’t the first game to combine the card game with RPG elements and character building, but it might be the most charming. With its colorful art style and stylized Adventure Time-esque designs, Meteorfall promised a humorous approach to the subgenre when it launches later this month. Choosing from four heroes ranging from the floppy-hatted rogue to the broadsword-wielding warrior, battles in Meteorfall are ones of decks and loot, as you draw actions, perks, and gear from your deck; each draw opens the door for new tactics and strategies against the charmingly grotesque enemies you’ll face. Powerful magic, special weapons, and more expand your deck as you progr…
