A new BTS game from the makers of BTS World is in the works

Following the massive success of BTS World, Netmarble and Big Hit Entertainment have announced today that they’ll be teaming up to bring to life another BTS game. For now, all we really have to go on is a concept trailer, though what a concept trailer it is. I have to admit that I’m not terribly knowledgeable on BTS or the ‘Bangtan Universe’. However, I do know not to get on the wrong side of its frighteningly devoted fanbase. I’m sure they’re passionate for a reason; the band is cool and all. BTS World, if you missed it, is of course a visual novel that follows the BTS boys through their journey to stardom, often going off on intriguing, alternate rea…

PAYDAY: Crime War blasts its way onto the App Store and Google Play

Intense ‘cops v robbers’ shooter, PAYDAY: Crime War, has finally made its way to the App Store and Google Play. It’s currently available in soft launch for players in most EU countries, including the UK, and – as first reported by Android Police – a US beta period has been announced. The news of the beta arrived on the game’s Facebook page. It’ll be playable for a limited time prior to the full launch. Crime War has been in the works since all the way back in 2016, maybe even earlier. The first gameplay actually cropped up in early 2017, and, besides a few hands-on previews late last year, development progress has been fairly quiet since then.…

Tombshaft is a charming, challenging rogue-lite platformer

Tombshaft, developer doinksoft’s second game this year following Gato Roboto, is a charming, challenging rogue-lite platformer. It tasks you with delving into a trap-filled, monster-infested tomb to hunt for priceless treasures, and it’s available for pre-order today on the App Store. Some have already drawn comparisons between it and roguelike classics like Spelunky and Downwell. Though, on closer inspection, it’s clear that Tombshaft’s gameplay differs quite a bit from both. You’ll rapidly slide down the crumbling cave walls while taking care to dodge the various monsters that call the tomb home. In the mix are man-sized bats, horned devil things, and the od…

Agent A: A Puzzle in Disguise gets its fifth and final episode this month

The final episode of acclaimed point-and-click adventure game Agent A: A Puzzle in Disguise has finally received a firm release date. This follows a major delay which saw the final episode being pushed back from its planned launch late last year. The announcement came in the form of a tweet from developer Yak & Co which featured a puzzle for fans to solve. It didn’t take long at all for folk to start spotting the release date of the final episode contained within. Here’s your heads-up before I spoil the release date, just in case you’d like to solve the puzzle yourself. Incoming.... mes..sage... from... head..quarters....

Golf Peaks' latest update adds 12 super challenging courses

Indie developer Afterburn’s puzzle/golf hybrid, Golf Peaks, is getting a whopping new update later this month that adds 12 extra hard courses to tackle. The new levels are totally free, and you can expect to see version 3.0 launch on August 13th. The announcement of more content for Golf Peak, a previous Big Indie Pitch winner, is great news for puzzle fans. If you’ve not tried it out yet, it’s maybe best described as a turn-based puzzler where you’re given a handful of pre-selected moves to make. The “moves” in this case are swings of your putter. It sounds like something that shouldn’t really work, and yet it absolutely does. I suppose it helps…

Microsoft's Gears POP! opens for pre-registration

Gears POP! is the upcoming spinoff to one of last-gen’s most influential series, Gears of War. It takes the likes of Marcus Fenix, Dom, and Cole Train, and gives them all a cute Funko Pop! makeover, while still retaining some of the punchy, tactical combat that the earlier games are known for. It’s basically a hero collector which sees you upgrading and testing your crew to perfection. The news today is that the game has now entered its pre-registration phase ahead of its planned launch on September 2nd. Gears POP! is focused on intense PVP battles against opponents from all over the world. While the combat is still real-time, it’s decidedly slower and more tactical tha…

Tencent's Ace Force is Overwatch for mobile

Ace Force is Tencent’s none-too-subtle take on Blizzard’s megahit hero shooter, Overwatch. It’ll be launching in China on August 13th for iOS and Android devices, with its western release set to follow. There’s been a fair bit of gameplay shown off previously, but the game’s latest trailer highlights its characters, maps, weaponry, and game modes. First off, the weapons don’t look too reminiscent of Overwatch’s more cartoony arsenal. The guns typically look like guns, albeit colourful and almost nerf-like. Some of what we see in action includes an assault rifle, submachine gun, shurikens, a flamethrower, a rocket launcher, and a nice, punchy shotgun…

Stellar party game Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes comes to mobile this week

One of the best party games around, Steel Crate Games’ Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, is finally coming to iOS and Android on August 1st – that’s this Thursday. It tasks one player with defusing a randomly generated bomb while the other players attempt to talk them through the tricky process of it all. That feeling of everyone frantically explaining fairly complex issues might be familiar to anyone who’s played 2012 hit Spaceteam. You’ll have to relay information and solutions in as concise and fast a manner as possible, as the team attempts to work out input codes or which wire needs to be cut. And the bomb is actually generated at the start of every roun…

Tori is Bandai Namco's mobile-bound answer to Nintendo Labo

Tori, Bandai Namco’s mobile-bound answer to Nintendo Labo, mixes customisable, craftable toys with a selection of quirky mini-games. The first pack, known as the ‘Explorer Pack’, will release on October 2nd, and a new trailer for the pack lays out exactly what you can expect from the Tori experience. Unsurprisingly, it’s all very Labo-like, with small customisable carboard figures to collect and build. In the first pack, there’s a spacecraft and a functioning mini-catapult. One of the things that sets Tori apart is the strange plastic board and ‘wand’ that you can use to manipulate the environment in some of the mini-games. Each of the toys looks e…

Playerless: One Button Adventure is a comedic 'game within a game'

Playerless: One Button Adventure is an upcoming puzzler that sees you entering the world of an old arcade game to fix its many bugs and wrestle back control from its newly self-aware AI. It comes to us from developer Moonlit, and it’s headed to iOS and Android later this year. Playerless is a “game within a game” in the sense that your character is actually playing this old ghost-hunting title that’s been abandoned inside a run-down arcade. You’ll have to try to fix some ridiculous bugs as you go while the world around you collapses in on itself. The arcade cabinet has been left in such a state of disrepair that only one of its buttons still functions, meani…
