Not everything is brand new to us, like we've known about Torchlight: Infinite for a while but there's also some excellent news such as My Time At Portia heading for iOS and Android. We decided to go through a few of the highlights from the conference. Torchlight: Infinite ... [MORE]

What the Golf? gets a Sporty Sports update that adds 30 new levels

about X hours ago from

What the Golf?, the joyously silly golf parody, has just received a giant update that adds 30 sports-themed levels. The Sporty Sports expansion is just about the best replacement for the 2020 Olympics one could hope for, haphazardly forcing a sort of golf into a range of different sports. The trailer below shows off the game's interpretation of horse racing, pole vaulting, running, weight lifting, diving, and more. Much like the vanilla levels, they look incredibly daft – which is obviously a glowing compliment. ... [MORE]

Gone but not forgotten: 16 games pulled from the App Store before their time

about X hours ago from

Updated July 10, 2020: Original story by Danny Russell, update by Jon Mundy The App Store is swamped with thousands upon thousands of titles. At any given point you must have a wishlist of at least a dozen or two that you're waiting to go on sale or, better yet, free.But what if something infinitely worse happens? What if the game you've been holding out for is removed, without warning? Well, you're just plain out of luck.Games are removed from the App Store for all sorts of reasons. Illegal or immoral content, expired licenses, backdoor hacks - you name it. Some publishers never even reveal why their games are removed.The worrying part of all this is that some games may not be digitally preserved for future generations to experience.Generally, if you've bought a title that becomes delisted, you can still download it from the "Purchased" tab in the App Store app, but if you're worried about games disappearing for good you can check our guide on how to back up a removed app here. We've chosen some of our most missed games, which we're worried you may have missed out on. Here's our final hurrah to these these lost gems: ... [MORE]

The wonderfully creepy Creaks is this week's Apple Arcade release

about X hours ago from

Today's surprise Apple Arcade release, Creaks, is the latest game from acclaimed developer Amanita Design, whose previous work includes Chuchel and Pilgrims. It's a wonderfully strange-looking puzzler where you'll venture forth into a world of strange avian folk and monstrous furniture. The gargantuan mansion below your own home is packed full of puzzles to solve and hidden paintings to uncover. The launch trailer above also shows that you'll eventually team up with one of the bird people, and I'm curious to see how the seemingly interactive paintings play into things. Also, just to make matters worse for the no-doubt terrified protagonist, there's a giant monster roaming around. ... [MORE]

Following the addition of Jessie & Arbok as a free Sync Pair yesterday another duo involving a poisonous snake has arrived on Pasio. This time it's Lucy & Seviper whose arrival coincides with a Poison-type Training event. Unlike Jessie & Arbok however, they won't be free and you'll have to obtain them through the usual gacha means. This can be made somewhat easier between now and July 24th as Lucy & Seviper will have a Spotlight Scout until then. This will give players an increased chance to net the new duo alongside boosted odds of getting Plumeria & Salazzle. ... [MORE]
