10tons announces the iOS port of open world RPG Dysmantle

Finnish indie developers 10tons have decided to cater to everyone's inner destructive desires by creating a game called Dysmantle, wherein 99% of the environment is available to be broken down and destroyed for materials. Dysmantle was released for PC and Consoles in November 2021 and will be coming to iOS on May 19th for those who prefer their destructive rampages to be portable. Whilst the premise of being able to utterly obliterate anything that comes into view may be enough for some people Dysmantle does have a lot of depth involved, even if 10tons did build up from that base idea. Inspired by mining games such as Motherload and Steamworld Dig, players are able to grind up almost anythi…

The announcement has come with news of a closed beta that is available to apply for on the official website now.

At first look, Zenless Zone Zero seems set to follow the same anime art style of these previous big hitters, with hopefully the same tight enjoyable gameplay the company is capable of. Zenless Zone Zero is a new IP set in a sprawling post-ap…

Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion comes to mobile this month

After a year on consoles on PC, Publishers Graffiti Games is bringing the rather excellently titled Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion to mobile. Originally developed by Snoozy Kazoo, the mobile port has been handed over to Plug In Digital to shrink it down for portability, and this game deserves to be everywhere based on its name alone. Turnip Boy follows the story of an anthropomorphic Turnip who is described as a menace to society, whose ways catch up to them when the onion mayor evicts them from their house for failing to pay taxes. Turnip Boy must then embark on an epic quest to pay back the sizable debt they have racked up, or failing that, a journey to commit as much fraud as possible. P…

Supercell backed studio Ultimate Studio launches racer Hot Lap League

Ultimate Studio, a studio partnered under the Supercell Investee Family, has developed and released a new racing game, Hot Lap League.

Instead, the only way to go faster is for players to repeatedly practise on the tracks and rely solely on increasing their personal skill levels. Featuring over 150 at launch, there will certainly be a lot to master. To ease this repetition, there will be daily events that bring players together to compete for prizes.…
