The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross pre-registration is now live for iOS and Android

illo: Help the Armadillo Escape is a globetrotting runner with a cool aesthetic

illo: Help the Armadillo Escape is a newly released runner from Spanish indie developer Mar Carballo. It sees you playing as a highflying armadillo, who escapes the back of a poacher's van to begin a globetrotting adventure. You'll see a variety of beautiful locations on your trip, including Zarautz, Madrid, Bilbao, and Piravik in Norway. Gameplay is a mix of fast-paced platforming and intense runner action, with you having to avoid touching the ground at all costs. As you progress, you'll unlock new skills and upgrades with which to traverse the environment. I really like its distinctive aesthetic and general art design, though I have to wonder if we'll see more colours other than blue…

Please, Touch the Artwork is an inventive puzzler inspired by the work of iconic artists

Please, Touch the Artwork is an intriguing puzzler from developer Studio Waterzooi. What makes it stand out is that its minigames are each themed around a specific painting or art movement. The initial three will draw from the work of Piet Mondrian, known for being one of the pioneers of abstract art. The first puzzle is inspired by Mondrian's 'Composition with Red Blue and Yellow'. It's described by the developer as a game of trial and error, where you'll gradually work to understand its rules. This is intended as a metaphor for the creative process, with the artist trialling different techniques before eventually landing on a satisfying result. It all looks very stylish and different,…

Save the Turtles! is a cute little game with a great environmental message

Updated 06/01/2020: Game is now live over on Google Play. Original story continues below... Save the Turtles! is a cute but tricky game about skillfully removing plastics from a fast-moving body of water. It comes to us from indie developer Philip Pounds, whose first game, Blackhole Falling!, was a platformer of sorts about guiding your dinky avatar out of a black hole. Philip's latest game boasts an appealing pixel art aesthetic inspired by the 16-bit era. Its soundtrack is pretty chilled, with the intended vibe being South Florida/Key West, which I think it achieves rather well.  Gameplay sees you tapping your screen to remove plastics from the water, and your score will contin…

Thankfully, you'll have some helpful upgrades to rely on that should hopefully make some of the tougher encounters a little easier. The game's latest update adds a handful of new maps to explore…

Super Mecha Champions' Christmas update adds new character Mila

NetEase's fun, anime-inspired Super Mecha Champions has added a new character as part of its latest update. Mila is voiced by Yui Makino of Gundam Build Fighters Try and Tsubasa Chronicle fame. Sure, she might not appear particularly threatening, but she packs a devastating punch with her heavy armour mecha by her side. The Christmas update turns the SMC battlefield into a winter wonderland. The Caramel and Doomlight are now looking all festive, and you can also expect to see new skins for Mira and Joanna. The biggest addition here might be the new Training Ground mode. This lets you get some pre-battle training in using any of the mechas, guns, or weapons you want. It gives you a chanc…

Ten great games you might have missed in 2019 (part 2)

This here is part 2 of our "ten great games you might have missed in 2019" feature. Here's part 1 in case you missed it. Astrologaster Astrologaster is among the most unique and surprisingly funny games of 2019. It tells the tale of real-life occultist Simon Foreman, who attempted to diagnose and cure old-timey London residents of their various ailments using astrology. Its choice-based gameplay is simple and fun, but it's the writing and voice acting that makes Astrologaster an easy recommendation. Knights and Slimes Knight and Slimes is a smart roguelike platformer which takes the humble slime and turns it into one of the best video game enemies of the year. Hitting a slime with your…

Ten great games you might have missed in 2019 (part 1)

With everyone and their gran now putting out GOTY lists, I think it's a great time to shine a spotlight on some titles that many might have missed during what was a terrific year for mobile gaming. This here is the first of two parts.  Ordia Ordia, the "one-finger flinger", is pretty much the best platformer I've played on mobile all year. It's accessible, challenging when it needs to be, incredibly moreish, and polished to a shine. Here's a brief description I wrote earlier in the year: "As a one-eyed ball of goo, you’ll start out by launching yourself from the bubbling primordial ooze to the endless caverns above. The goal is to continue working your way forever upwards, hop…
