Embrace the life of a humble root vegetable as Minabo - A walk through life launches on mobile

Have you ever stared up at the night sky, tears in your eyes, and screamed to the gods “Why was I not born a turnip”? Well, someone at DevilishGames did, and they created a rather popular life simulator named Minabo - A walk through life, which you find mobile folk can now download. During its tenure on Steam and consoles, Minabo found itself quite the niche, racking up universal acclaim and earning a respectful number of award nods. It even won a couple of them, recently earning Best Video Hame at the 2023 Berlanda Award, and now it's ready to take the world of mobile gaming by storm. Minabo places you in the shoes of, of all things, a turnip that has just recently sprouted fr…

Reverse 1999 rings in Version 1.3 Phase 2 with a hero who can clean house single handedly

To say that Reverse 1999 has had quite a successful launch might just be an understatement when you look at the numbers. In just four short months, the Bluepoch RPG has racked up an astonishing 19 million downloads worldwide, a fantastic background to roll into Version 1.3's second phase. The headline here is the release of a brand new six-star Arcanist, the Beast Afflatus Shanmane. He sports a normal attack that rips out 200% Reality DMG just as a baseline, which can be increased by his mass debuff that increases DMG taken by all enemies and also decreases their Reality and Mental DEF. This also sets up his ultimate perfectly, a 250% Reality hit to all enemies, plus an additional 250% to t…

Defence Derby whips out the magic brooms as Krafton detail two new magic units

Krafton has released information on the two newest units landing in the PvP tower defense, Defence Derby. Florea is out now and will be followed by Celestial Prayer later this month, and you can also turn your hand to two exciting events happening in February. Florea belongs to the spirit faction and will be bringing so much-appreciated skills to the battlefield. She only packs a one-tile, but her unique ability allows her to heal your castle’s HP, invaluable for the late stages when enemies start ramping up. On the flip side, the skill is called Sacrifice, so as you might guess, you need to blow Florea up for this to happen. Our second new unit is definitely one to watch. Another ma…

Recruit two new characters and clear some special event dungeons in King of Fighters Allstar

Netmarble has unleashed two new warriors into the world of King of Fighters Allstar in the latest update. Athena and Xi Benimaru are gearing up to jump into the ring and tackle the onslaught of new dungeons and special events placed before them in this bumper January release. Both of these new fighters are more geared towards mono-coloured teams thanks to their skills, starting with 2003 Athena. She is an Attack-type Green Element, with the ability to increase Green fighters ATK, which is cool. Her main strength lies in her use of Barrier projectiles to shepherd enemies together, setting them up for some easy AOE damage. Our second recruit is Xi Benimaru, also an Attack fighter but of the…

GungHo Online announce a collaboration between Puzzle & Dragons and one of the greats of manga

We all enjoy a good puzzle game, but I am sure we can agree adding a constant threat of dismemberment would really up that enjoyment, which is why GungHo Online has announced a collaboration with Chainsaw Man for the hit match-3 Puzzle & Dragons. If you managed to miss it, Chainsaw Man is a massively popular shonen manga series, making it quite a boon for GungHo. It follows the story of a young man named Denji who, after being betrayed by his employers and killed, forms a contract with the Chainsaw Devil, in the form of lovable pooch Pochita, to save his life and becomes the eponymous Chainsaw Man. By taking on the Chainsaw Man dungeon, you can earn yourself one pull of the Super Godfa…

The crimson sky beckons battlers as TROI gets a new weather effect in New State Mobile

We are, somehow, nearing the end of January, which really snuck up out of nowhere, and this can only mean it's time for the first monthly update for 2024 for KRAFTON's battle royale, New State Mobile.

Delve into the life of one of history's most electrifying figures in The House of Tesla

History can be both incredibly cruel and kind, and unfortunately for Nikola Tesla, he got the short end of both sticks, primarily being remembered as a brand of electric cars, and for his feud with Thomas Edison. Blue Brain Games is looking to shine a light on his own works, however, with the upcoming puzzle game The House of Tesla. Players will be stepping into the shoes of the father of alternating current himself, as they explore the life of one of the most prolific inventors in history. The story will focus on Wardenclyffe, what was to be Teslas’ magnum opus until his ever-expanding vision for the site caused the chief financial backer to pull out, and saw the project reduced to d…
