ShapeOnimoes is a smart, minimalist puzzler inspired by Tangram and Pentomino

Crazy Oyster Games’s upcoming puzzler ShapeOnimoes looks to be a simple, smart, challenging little game which harkens back to the likes of Tangram and Pentomino. As you can see from the gameplay trailer below, each level has its own unique shape for you to fill in using the onimoes at your disposal. Within every level are three sublevels that also need to be solved if you’re to progress. The sublevels feature their own domino types to use and master. It promises a fair challenge, though the early levels do a good job of easing you into the experience. At launch, there are set to be over 120 levels to work your way through - 360+ if you could the sublevels. The developer also…

LEGO Star Wars Battles is an action strategy game starring characters from the entire saga

LEGO Star Wars Battles in a very imaginatively-named action strategy game heading to iOS and Android devices in 2020. It comes to us from developer TT Games Brighton, and it tasks you with amassing the ultimate collection of fan-favourite Star Wars characters and vehicles. It’s largely focused on real-time, 1V1 multiplayer battles, with a sizeable portion of deckbuilding on the side. You’ll gather together characters from the entire Star Wars Saga, including the recent spinoffs, then deploy your army and build defensive towers to capture enemy territory and take down your opponents. Sure, it’s a strategy game, but it’s also said to be very accessible. Some of the…

Shovel Knight Dig is shaping up to be a promising spinoff

Shovel Knight Dig is an upcoming platformer heading our way thanks to a promising partnership between Yacht Club games – creator of the original Shovel Knight – and Nitrome. It’s an all-new adventure featuring well-known knights from the hard-as-nails original, including the titular shovel-wielding hero and the dastardly Drill Knight. It sees you digging your way underground, earning loot and rare materials as you go. It seems to rely quite heavily on randomly-generated levels, which certainly sets it apart from its big brother. The latest trailer showcases some impressive animations, new enemies, and the altered combat system – all of which I definitely like the loo…

Fifth episode of Agent A: A Puzzle in Disguise ' The Final Blow' is finally out

The fifth and final episode of Yak & Co’s Agent A: A Puzzle in Disguise is finally out on both the App Store and Google Play. To say it’s been a long time coming would perhaps be an understatement, though many seem to be singing the praises of ‘The Final Blow, which suggests to me that it’s probably been worth the wait. The fifth episode was teased earlier this month over on Yak & Co’s official Twitter account. The release date arrived via cryptic puzzle, with many fans rushing to solve the conundrum. If you’re new to the series, Agent A is a classy point-and-click adventure game where you assume the role of a mysterious agent. You’ve bee…

Dead Cells makes its grand debut on the App Store today

The iOS version of Dead Cells, Motion Twin’s smash-hit roguelike, is now available for download over on the App Store. It arrives following a near year-long wait which started when a Google Play store page leaked the existence of the ports. It’s headed our way from developer Playdigious, and it seems like the team there has done a commendable job of translating a complex, lightning-fast game over to mobile. Dead Cells first launched last year on PC and consoles, going on to earn various GOTY nominations. Its mix of accessible roguelike mechanics and high-octane action made it once of the standout indies from last year, both in terms of sales and critical adoration. It was always…

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…

Dear Esther, The Chinese Room’s divisive narrative-driven adventure game, is coming to iOS

Dear Esther, The Chinese Room’s highly divisive narrative-driven adventure game, is heading to iOS later in the year. It’s arguably the game responsible for the popularisation of the ‘walking sim’ genre. After originally launching for PC all the way back in 2012, Dear Esther has gone on to sell over one million units. At launch, it was praised for its very deliberate pacing and refreshing lack of action. For sure, it didn’t win over everyone, but it’s hard to argue against the game’s importance as a foundation for the likes of Gone Home and What Remains of Edith Finch. Your time in Dear Esther is spent exploring an isolated, abandoned Hebridean i…

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…
