Minecraft - Pocket Edition receives infinite worlds in 0.9.0 update

There is something quite poetic about the way Minecraft - Pocket Edition has you incrementally building a world, while Mojang incrementally bolts on extras to the game around you. However, now it seems that the company has pulled out all the stops with the massive 0.9.0 update, bringing the mobile game's feature set far closer to its PC and console cousins. The most exciting of these changes is that Minecraft - Pocket Edition now features infinite worlds. If you're counting, that's a lot of worlds. Its not just hills and plains for as far as the eye can see either, because 0.9.0 brings a vast range of new environmental features. These include caves, mine-shafts, lakes, and villages f…

Supernauts Review

Review Grand Cru By Alex Beech, 4 months, 1 week ago
Supernauts Review

Where Supernauts differs from other free-to-play world-building games like Clash of Clans or The Sims Freeplay, is that it doesn’t constrain your creativity with set structures. Instead it lets you make whatever you desire on your tiny world from a series of blocks, essentially taking the freedom of Minecraft, and applying it in a free-to-play context. The game takes place on an asteroid. Controlling your Supernaut you use the "zapper" - a device with a wonderfully '70…

Block Fortress: War will be knocking your block off tonight on the App Store

Block Fortress: War will be knocking your block off tonight on the App Store

Much like previous Block Fortress titles, Block Fortress: War - which set to land on the App Store tonight - borrows the Minecraft aesthetic, and repurposes in the name of violence. The latest entry in the series is a fast-paced intergalactic tower-defence game in which you battle five alien races in your efforts to rule the galaxy. Each of the game's races has their own weapons and heroes, all of which bring their own strengths and weaknesses to the battlefield.  The tower-defence gameplay also features real-time strategy elements, with capture and control points helping to turn the flow of battle. Capturing these hotspots allow you to build additional upgrades and weapons ou…
