Scratch your clubbing itch with rhythm-based platformer, Vectronom

If you miss going clubbing and losing yourself in the rhythm of the music this year, then Vectronom might just scratch that itch for you. The rhythm-based 3D platformer released last year lets you immerse yourself in a rejuvenating burst of colour and music with its atmospheric levels in isometric view. The obstacles shift with the music, so you have to navigate through the maddening puzzle platformer by syncing yourself to the electronic beat. It’s frustrating and entrancing at the same time, which guarantees a gaming experience where there’s never a dull moment. As you get into the groove of this musical puzzle game, you can choose to brave the campaign and go solo, or play…

Comedy point and click adventure There Is No Game: Wrong Dimension releasing for mobile later this month

There Is No Game: Wrong Dimension is coming to mobile later this month on 17th December. As the title implies, Draw Me a Pixel has created a game that isn’t a game, or at least doesn’t want to be. In it, you play as a gamer who can’t believe there isn’t a game to play. As a result of their constant interference with the software, the whole thing breaks and brings them to another dimension where they must work out how to get home. There are puzzles to solve, each one being a parody of video game culture and all that surrounds it, with titles like Papers, Please and Superhot being up there as featured parodies. You’ll need to think outside of the box if you want…

Physics puzzler Donut County now available for Android

Two years ago Annapurna Interactive released Donut County, a physics-based puzzler, on iOS devices alongside the console and PC versions, and now it’s just hit Android. In Donut County you control a hole that can move across the level, and your goal is to use the hole to swallow every object and clear it out. The more objects you swallow, the bigger the hole grows and thus the bigger the items you can swallow becomes. There’s also a puzzle aspect to it, where to swallow objects that are sitting on a body of water you’d need to manoeuvre the hole to drain part of the water, and then have that water consumed by a bird, repeating this until the water is drained.

Clusterduck, a duck collection game, is out now for mobile

PikPok has released Clusterduck for iOS and Android devices. It’s a rather cute game where you breed and collect a variety of bizarre and quirky ducks. The best way to describe it would be a cross between a creature collection game, like Pokémon, and a game that lets you customise how a species evolves, like Spore. Over the course of the game you breed some seriously strange types of duck, and the more you hatch the more likely they mutate into a nightmarish version of a duck. You might be familiar with PikPok from its previous mobile game, Flick Kick Football, which was released on iOS and Android. The concept for Clusterduck is rather wacky, but it began as a small project c…
