Stumble Guys takes on Dungeon Master duties with massive new Dungeons and Dragons collaboration

It makes me incredibly pleased to see Dungeons and Dragons getting more and more screentime with the recent movie and of course Baldur Gate 3. Now Stumble Guys is embracing the tabletop legends with quite the beefy collaboration. To honour D&Ds 50th anniversary Stumble Guys has implemented two massive new courses crammed with lava, traps, Kobolds, Beholders, and of course, the titular Dragons, all the while being harassed by the encroaching prismatic wall. Do not abandon hope through heroes, as you can tackle these challenges as one of four D&D classic classes. Each of these comes equipped with their own special skills. The Warrior keeps their beloved meathead attitude, swinging an…

The 2024 PMGO Brazil tournament heats up as the Qualifiers draw to a close

I am, and forever shall be, in support of developers opening up tournaments to the public so anyone can cash in their skills and earn some extra cash, and now PUBG is advancing their Brazil Open as the top 32 teams are locked in and ready to duke it out.

Super Impact announces pre-registration for upcoming runner Sidestep Storm

Endless Runners are all but a staple on mobile, obviously, just look at Subway Surfers. We all have our favourites, I, for one, was partial to the Adventure Time one before it shuttered, and we are soon to receive another choice as Super Impact announces a release date for Sidestep Storm. As you might expect from the title, Sidestep Storm plops you right in the middle of an urban environment right in the middle of some pretty windy weather, and what better to do during this phenomenon than go for a good run? Of course, with big wind comes a cavalcade of debris to avoid. A neverending stream of tumbling automotives will be hurtling towards you at breakneck speeds, with a plethora of speedbu…

Bytten Studio announces massive plans to bring hit RPG Cassette Beasts to iOS and Android

I am sure a lot of people will agree when I say that Pokemon lost a lot of its allure after the move to Switch. It’s hard to place your finger on, but they aren’t dominating the genre anymore. One of the biggest contenders for the creature collector throne was Bytten Studio’s Cassette Beast, and they are making some big moves. Cassette Beasts first launched in April 2023 and followed a hero who fell into a world called New Wirral, which is beset by all manner of monsters. These can only be tackled using a cassette player to turn into said beasties, all the while recording more to add to your collection. All this to the backdrop of captivating characters and an absolutely w…

Learn about the environment and pick up some nice gear as Genshin Impact teams up with the Discovery Channel

Thanks to being one of the biggest entertainment industries in the world, gaming can be an incredible force for good, and the latest example of this is Genshin Impact teaming up with the Discovery Channel to present the Teyvat Nature Discovery Tour, in an attempt to raise awareness of the vital yet sadly fragile natural habitats of earth. Learning can be boring, let's be honest, so the Voices of Nature documentary takes a more playful approach, with a selection of environments themselves telling you their roles in nature and why they need protecting. There are also so startling facts thrown in, such as the real possibility that by 2050, plastic will outweigh all the fish in the ocean. If…

Take aim at the world's most deadly of nuts in Acorn Cop

Take aim at the world's most deadly of nuts in Acorn Cop

If you are a squirrel then cover your eyes because this is going to hurt, but Mini Fun Games has announced the release of Acorn Cop, a game where you destroy acorns with a gun. It’s one of those quick casual experiences you can whip out whenever you have a few minutes. Rather, unfortunately, the premise of Acorn Cop is based on a real-world story, when a policeman in Florida mistook the sound of acorns falling to the ground as gunshots, and then unloaded their weapon at a suspect who was already cuffed in the back of a cop car. It's the type of story that makes you groan, but at least we got a game from it. The aim is simple; shoot the acorns when they pop into the screen, but make s…

If you asked someone what their favourite mythological animal or being is, there would be a plethora of answers, and let's face it they would all be right there are some cool ones out there. But dragons would have to be near the top, and now you can harness the power of these magnificent beasts once more thanks to Black Desert Mobile's new Awakening Class. To be fair, Black Desert Mobile already has a pretty cool dragon-based class with Drakania, but this gets kicked up to 11 when you unlock this new Awakening class, Letanas. Armed with a host of new dragon abilities, as well as a nifty pair of wings, she can devastate the battlefield from the safety of the skies. As always, the new Letana…
