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 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 celebrates its 5th anniversary in style with a cinematic trailer that hints at the game's future

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…

Surreal and imaginative Adventure puzzler, Figment: Journey Into the Mind is now available for iOS

Figment: Journey Into the Mind is a new release from Bedtime Digital Games, an indie studio with a passion for high concepts and the surreal. Figment stays true to form, being inspired and designed around the concept of the human psyche.  Set in a human mind that's been experiencing a serene sense of calm, you're placed in the role of Dusty - the mind's paladin of courage. Sadly, whilst the mind's enjoying its peaceful state, Dusty finds himself of little use, and longing for adventure. It doesn't take long for his wish to come true as for seemingly no reason, the mind is being troubled by terrifying thoughts, and summoning nightmarish creatures as a result. You'll need to guide Dus…

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…

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…

Gorgeous dungeon crawler MONOLISK launches October 15th

Developer Trickster Arts’ MONOLISK is perhaps best described as a ‘fantasy mobile ARPG, CCG and dungeon builder in a single package’. It’s also really darn nice to look at, boasting a striking art style that I can’t say reminds me of much else out there. The game’s headed for a global release on October 15 on both iOS and Android, and you can pre-register now ahead of launch. At its core, MONOLISK sounds like the dungeon crawlers of yore, mixing hack ‘n’ slash combat with some basic exploration. You’ll collect various equipment, ability, and creature cards in order to work your way through the many tricky dungeons. There are 5 heroe…

The ultimate goal in each level is to drop the target points to ze…

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…
