about X hours ago from

We're not going to beat around the bush: we loved see/saw. From the mind of Philipp Stollenmayer, creator of the excellent Supertype comes another minimal platform puzzler. This time he's drawing inspiration from the likes of N++ and Super Meat Boy, creating a super-streamlined but incredibly elegant game of momentum, buzzsaws, and death. ... [MORE]

Sky Gamblers - Storm Raiders 2 review - "A dogfight sim that gets its balance just right"

about X hours ago from

Flying a plane in a dogfight should be difficult. I mean, in an FPS game all you need to do is walk forward, but in a aviation-based shooter you also need to keep a really heavy bit of metal in the air at the same time. But that difficulty needs to be considered in very specific ways. Especially on mobile. Luckily though, Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders 2 gets everything just about spot on. There are control options for almost any level of player, and while they all offer their own challenges, they're easy enough to get to grips with if you've made the right choice as to which you're going to use. ...

Hands on! Dragons: Titan Uprising is a puzzler from the makers of Jurassic World Alive

about X hours ago from

Ludia, the makers of Jurassic World Alive as well as 2014's Dragons: Rise of Berk game, has just announced its next title. The Canadian developer, famous for working with blockbuster licences, today unveiled DreamWorks Dragons: Titan Uprising, which will release early next year to coincide with the third in the animated movie series. It will task you with collecting and levelling-up dragons, and then assembling a team of five to battle villains. Combat takes the form of a match-three puzzle, where gems you collect power-up your dragon's special attacks. The RPG-puzzle format will be familiar from other games of this type but the faithful How To Train Your Dragon characters and aesthetic should appeal to fans of the DreamWorks animation. ... [MORE]

Everspace developer ramps up its team for an ambitious new action game

about X hours ago from

Rockfish, the team behind the highly acclaimed space exploration title, Everspace, has been hard at work this last year or so on their latest game, whose scope is said to be much grander than any of the team's previous efforts. Given that Rockfish is a relatively small independent studio, I'm glad to hear that it's brought some new hands on board to help out. If the game's scope is even larger than Everspace's, then a strengthened team will surely be a necessity in bringing such an ambitious vision to life. ... [MORE]
