Pocket Gamer's just got a new lick of paint and it's looking good

What's that? Pocket Gamer looks a bit different from before? Well, yes it does and there's a very good reason for that – it's had a spruce. I know, I know, between Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, and the PG redesign, it was hard to tell which legendary things were just pure myth. We've taken that out of your hands though and made it a reality, or rather Jez Bridgeman (Steel Media, Creative Director) and Jay Filmer (Steel Media, Technical Lead) did with their website wizardry. You may also notice that Pocket Gamer has snipped off its '.co.uk' tail and replaced it with Pocketgamer.com instead. Plus, it's a lot faster and more responsive than before. "The busy Pocket Gamer site was in n…

Super Smash Bros-style brawler Fright Fight now live around the world

Horror-flavoured multiplayer brawler Fright Fight has been causing a ruckus on the New Zealand App Store for a while now. However, the free-to-play Super Smash Bros.-inspired fighter has just gone global, finally hitting North American and European shores. Fright Fight is all about pitting classic horror icons against one another in pitched battle. The game's four-player online mode allows you to have a free-for-all with up to three other fighters, including a vampire, a yeti, and the Grim Reaper. You control your character's movement and abilities though a series of simple swipes and taps. With only a couple of attacks to fall back on, however, the move list does feel a little l…

This brain splitting task will start off quite simply, with two symmetrical tracks running in parallel. As the game progresses however, Dual Survivor will step up the difficulty, introducing a range of jumps, obst…
