Available Now On Windows 8, iOS, Steam

Microsoft’s newest Spartan adventure is no longer missing in action.

Originally announced for December 2014, the top-down shooter went dark shortly before its planned holiday launch thanks to The Master Chief collection’s multiplayer falling apart at the seams. After months of attempting to reign in the mega-pack’s matchmaking woes, Spartan Strike is finally getting its spot in the limelight.

Halo: Spartan Strike puts players in the shoes of a Spartan on New Mombasa during the events of Halo 2. Like its predecessor, the game sends players out on missions in the vein of the standard Halo games. Microsoft is claiming that it has improved touch controls for Spartan Strike, and that the Windows 8 version of the game is going to include weekly challenges similar to recent entries in the series.

Crypt Of The NecroDancer Shuffles To Full Release April 23

about X hours ago from

One of the most popular Early Access games at Steam is finally nearing its full release.

Brace Yourself Games' Crypt of the NecroDancer is an unconventional mash-up that combines rhythm games and roguelikes into an experience unlike any other. Using a dance pad (or conventional gamepad for those of you who live in towns that ban dancing), players dance (or tap) their way though procedurally generated dungeons on the way to challenging the infamous NecroDancer to a dance-off.

The game comes with its own soundtrack created by Danny Baranowsky (Super Meat Boy), but you can also incorporate your own music into the mix. Check out the action below:

Is WWE 2K Mobile Worth A Try?

Is WWE 2K Mobile Worth A Try?

WWE has made inroads in the mobile space with the Mortal Kombat-inspired WWE Immortals and trading card title WWE Supercard. But the company hasn't made a straight-up wrestling game until today's release on iOS and Android, WWE 2K. Is it worth the $7.99 price tag? Depends on your expectations.

If you're hoping for the all the bells and whistles of the console games, you're going to be highly disappointed. A lot is missing from this package, but if you're looking for a traditional wrestling game with touchscreen controls and your favorite stars, it holds up on the basics.

The roster includes most of the the big names of today, though women aren't included as of yet. (The complete list: Bad News Barrett, Batista, Big Show, Bray Wyatt, Brock Lesnar, Cesaro, Daniel Bryan, Dean Ambrose, Hulk Hogan, John Cena, Kane, Randy Orton, Roman Reigns, Rusev, Seth Rollins, Sheamus, Sting, Triple H, and Undertaker) The character models are actually pretty close to the real wrestlers. Entrances are a truncated approximation of the real thing, though Sting's is outdated and Batista doesn't do his trademark machine gun squat.

Vertiginous Golf, the steampunk themed mini golf game, releases next month on May 6.

The game takes place in a dystopian future where the world is split in two by a lottery.

For those on the ground, they can temporarily escape by vising the clouds for some rounds of Vertiginous Golf. The game consists of nearly 100 holes and has modes such as story, classic, and developer courses. Local and online multiplayer are available as well.
