Monster Hunter Freedom Unite will be delisted from the App Store on September 1st

The popular iOS port of Monster Hunter Freedom Unite will be delisted from the App Store on September 1st. Freedom Unite originally launched as a PSP game all the way back in 2008, before being ported to iOS in 2014.  While it’s bad news regardless of how you spin it, players who’ve already purchased the game will still be able to download and play it on their device with only a few caveats. You’ll still have the option to play through the single-player and online modes, but the in-game chat features will be removed. To make matters a little worse, it’s been confirmed that Freedom Unite is only supported up to iOS 10.2, meaning its days are numbered. Our sist…

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…

App Store picks what I play: Calculator 2: The Game

This week, I’ve decided to let the App Store and Google Play recommendation algorithms decide what I’ll be playing. As with any recommendation algorithm, the logic behind every one of these picks is entirely flawless. Calculator 2: The Game, the sequel to Calculator: The Game, a game I’d never played or ever really heard of prior to now, was my first recommendation. Already the algorithm is killing it, suggesting for me –a man without a proper maths qualification – a game all about messing with numbers and stuff. I load it up and am put into a tutorial with a very smiley-faced rectangle. They go through the basics, offering me two responses to every hint &nd…

Developers we’d love to see on Playdate: Part 5

On now to the 5th instalment of our list of developers we’d love to see on Panic’s Playdate. So far we’ve put together quite the line-up, including Lucas Pope, SWERY 65, and even Platinum Games. This time around, we’ve got one sensible pick and another, well, not so sensible one. Ojiro "Moppin" Fumoto Ojiro "Moppin" Fumoto, developer of 2015’s gunshoe-blasting Downwell, could certainly bring some rapid-fire platforming goodness to the Playdate. Fumoto’s striking visuals would translate well to the black and white display, and I’d love to see how he’d make use of that crank. Following up Downwell would be no easy task, but a similarly fast-pa…
