Garena Free Fire's Winterlands event comes bearing tons of new content

Garena Free Fire continues to be one of the biggest and most successful mobile games around. Now, a new event is on its way to help players get into the festive spirit. Winterlands, as it's known, will start by bringing back some of the most popular content from the last year of Free Fire, including skins such as the gingerbread man and polar bear suit, as well as game modes like Cold Steel, Clash Squad, Explosive Jump, and Big Head. Everything I've just listed will only be available for a limited time, so you'll need to be quick. On top of the older content, we'll also see a new holiday theme, new characters, and a new pet. The upcoming Snowman mode will be available to play from Decemb…

Cat Quest II adds a challenging New Game+ mode and a host of great improvements

Cat Quest II has now received a free update that adds an extensive New Game+ mode and makes a number of minor improvements that nevertheless should add some extra polish to the experience. New Game+ is obviously the big new addition here. It basically allows you to restart the game on a higher difficulty mode with all of your old gear, skills, and XP from your original run. Interestingly, you'll be able to increase the difficulty to suit your preference, kicking enemies all the way up to level 999 if you so desire. Another major change comes in the form of improved partner AI when playing solo. For completionists, detailed completion stats for dungeons, items, and quests are now viewable…

Overdrive II, the fast-paced hack 'n' slash, is now available for iOS

Gem Mobile's Overdrive II is a fast-paced, futuristic hack 'n' slash set 100 years after the apocalypse. With its neat sci-fi aesthetic and blistering action, it found plenty of fans when it first launched for Android. Earlier this week, the game finally made its way over to the App Store, allowing iOS players to get involved. While Overdrive II's world might be a post-apocalyptic, its inhabitants are feeling better and stronger than ever. That said, following a rogue AI taking charge of all robots and cyborgs, humans have had quite the struggle on their hands. Thankfully, a legion of ninja warriors has risen to the challenge, pushing back against the robot menace with their incredible comb…

Little White Rocket flies onto Google Play after launching for iOS last month

Little White Rocket first launched for iOS back in November, and now it's made its way over to Google Play. It's said to be an atmospheric and minimalist experience which sees you controlling a little white rocket as it travels the galaxy. Controls here are simple thanks to the one-touch approach to spinning, aiming, and flying. It's not looking to be super challenging; instead, you should expect a more meditative and relaxing time, where a calming sense of adventure meets easy-going puzzles. One of the big draws here is the addition of narrated poems that play out as you explore. These were written by award-winning poet, Laurence O'Dwyer. Developer Macalaus has previous experience worki…

Marvel Contest of Champions adds Fantastic 4's Silver Surfer

Marvel Contest of Champions now boasts one of the largest rosters of Marvel heroes and villains in any game to date. The latest character set to join the collectable brawler is the Silver Surfer. Developer Kabam recently put out an extended cinematic trailer to celebrate the game's 5th anniversary. Turns out the game has done really rather well over this last year, which also happens to have been the year of the Fantastic 4. And so I suppose it was only a matter of time before one of the 4's greatest villains showed up. Silver Surfer's lack of patience will be justified. pic.twitter.com/mlpSGFoJiZ — MarvelChampions (@MarvelChampions) December 12, 2019 In order to save his home…

Marvel Contest of Champions is celebrating its 5th anniversary in style with a neat cinematic trailer that hints at the future of the game's world and extensive roster of Marvel characters. Contest of Champions launched all the way back in 2014, and since then it's gone from strength to strength. It's now totalled over 2.8 billion hours of play time from over 215 million summoners, with a whopping 70 billion completed fights in total. What's especially impressive is that around 0.8 billion hours of that play time and 31 billion completed fights come from this last year alone. 25 new champions have been added in 2019, bringing the game's total up to an impressive 160 characters.

Metacritic's top 50 games of the decade is disappointingly light on mobile games

Metacritic, everyone's favourite film, games, and music aggregator, has now released its top 50 highest-rated games of the decade. Truth be told, there are very few surprises here, though what stands out to me is the complete lack of mobile games. Sure, Journey (number 40) and Inside (number 28) eventually got ported over, but there's not a single entry here that originated from iOS or Android.  Even indie darlings like Monument Valley (Metascore of 89), Florence (Metascore of 82), and The Room (Metascore of 89) don't come particularly close to hitting the 91+ Metascore required to feature here. The thing is that there are mobile games from the past decade with a score that's more than…

Run the Beat is a musical platformer that'll test your rhythm and reflexes that's available for iOS and Android

Run the Beat is a rhythm-based action platformer that aims to test your timing and reflexes in a music-focused fashion. It's available now for both iOS and Android. The developer Mousetrap Games has already seen some success for Run the Beat, having won the Big Indie Pitch at White Berlin Nights this year. It was praised for both its hand-drawn art style and rhythm-based mechanics. The gameplay itself will see the main character Noty jumping, rolling and swiping his way through very obstacles in time to music on his journey to reclaim his stolen headphones that a wizard took. Various indicators of different colours appear on the screen and you'll have to tap the corresponding action at t…

Intense FPS Red Dot soft-launches for Android on Google Play

Developer OnFace's Red Dot looks like a fairly standard FPS, with a collection of familiar modes from other games in the genre. There's your usual no-thrills Team Death Match, but Red Dot also offers a single-player sniper mode, which reminds me of something like Hitman: Sniper. Maps here range from cities to shipyards to warehouses. Again, very typical military FPS fare. At launch, there are over 50 weapons to collect, which seems like an awful lot. There are assault rifles, snipers, SMGs, heavy MGs, shotguns, pistols, and knives in the mix. You'll be able to customise your arsenal with upgrades and unlockable skins. There are also 5 characters to select from, all boasting their own uni…

The latest update for Brown Dust features some devilish additions

Last month was already a bumper time for new content in Brown Dust, the popular strategy RPG and gacha game. Two new Mercenaries and their Companions were introduced, a Halloween make-over was added, and there was a collaboration which saw the characters from a popular anime join the fray. Still, the devil makes work for idle thumbs. Publisher Neowiz is currently staging a new event – one which every Brown Dust player will want to take part in. With the latest update, Brown Dust’s ‘Run Seir Run’ event has now ended and ‘Jump-start Quest’ will take its place. Every day for seven days, new missions will be unlocked.

Multiplayer beta test for Mario Kart Tour is exclusive to Gold Pass subscribers

Since launch, the absence of multiplayer in Mario Kart Tour has been more than a little perplexing. We kinda always knew it was coming, but for an MK game to launch with such an integral feature missing was still enough to draw the ire of certain fans. Now, however, Nintendo has announced over on Twitter that the game will be getting a multiplayer beta in December. The only problem? It's exclusive to Gold Pass subscribers… A real-time multiplayer beta test is planned for December and will be available to #MarioKartTour Gold Pass subscribers.Stay tuned here for more details coming soon. pic.twitter.com/xNIdJE44cI — Mario Kart Tour (@mariokarttourEN) November 1, 2019 Yeah,…

Fans of Sierra 7 can now play it on their mobiles

Sierra 7 is a tactical on-rails shooter that has its roots in Flash games of years gone by. The original was released in 2011 where it has since been played over 40 million times. Now it's been overhauled for both iOS and Android where it is available to play for free. It's not just its previous life as a browser-game where Sierra 7 has received a few plaudits either. In May of this year, it was the winner of the Big Indie Pitch at Pocket Gamer Connects Seattle. Its distinctive, minimalist art direction and intense gunplay have earned it a lot of praise. You play as a military operator and will handle the aiming, shooting and tactically ducking into cover, whilst moving between areas is…

Forgotten Memories, the classic Silent Hill-inspired horror game, has finally arrived on Android

Psychose Interactive's Silent Hill-inspired horror game Forgotten Memories has finally made its way to Android over four years after launching for iOS. It harkens back to classics of the genre with its mix of tricky puzzling, brutal combat, and psychological scares. The game sees you assume the role of a young woman investigating the disappearance of a child. Rose, the lead, wakes up in a weird place filled with mannequins and a definite air of something being amiss. As she continues to explore, she finds herself embroiled in a 'never-ending tragedy'. This latest version apparently boasts some improvements over the iOS original, though I'm still not sure what they are or how extensive th…

SIMULACRA 2 is an unsettling 'found phone' horror game for iOS and Android

SIMULACRA 2, Kaigan Games' immersive narrative thriller, is an inventive and discomforting game all about investigating the mysterious death of a young influencer. It uses a phone interface to tell its grisly take, putting you directly into the experience as an investigative journalist. The victim's death has been ruled an accident, but that isn't fooling Detective Murilo. As part of his investigation, he enlists your help to solve the case, and you'll do so by exploring the victim's phone, navigating familiar apps and Maya's messages, videos, and social media to find clues. When it comes time to do so, you can conduct interviews with suspects and witnesses in order to check stories and ca…
