Darkness Rises plunges players into The Underworld, a gloomy dark fantasy setting replete with demons and other evil beings. As you might have guessed, it’s your job to battle the monstrous hordes and prevent them from escaping to attack the peaceful world above.

Darkness Rises features single player play, along with your usual multiplayer dungeons that you can tackle with friends or guildmates.

F1 Trading Card Game could be the card game petrolheads have been waiting for

We always get a little bit excited when a new card game comes out on mobile, and F1 Trading Card Game, while it might have one of the dullest names in the history of naming things, has definitely piqued our interest.

As you might be able to tell from that yawnfest of a name, it's a trading card game featuring F1 cars, teams, and drivers. So if you're a petrolhead, this may well be the card-based game you've been yearning for.

The humorous strategic city-builder, Tropico, is headed to iPad later this year

This isn't exactly the news I was expecting today, but Feral Interactive revealed that it'd be bringing Tropico to iPad at some point in 2018. If you don't know what that is you're in for a real treat, friends.

 

Originally published by Kalypso Media, Tropico has been redesigned and built for mobile from the ground up. In it, you'll play as El Presidente, the leader of the resource-rich Carribean island of Tropico. As well as managing its economy, you have to be aware of the demands of various other political factions while deciding what kind of town you want to run. 

Review: Mario Tennis Aces review - Anyone for doubles?

Review: Mario Tennis Aces review - Anyone for doubles?

The Mario Tennis series is a bit like that former tennis prodigy who never quite broke through to the big time.

Early signs of spontaneous genius appear to have been gradually ground out of them, as they turn into a thoroughly solid but firmly second-tier pro.

Those hoping that Mario Tennis Aces would be the entry to swear at the umpire and rip a jumping topspin lob over its recent history are in for a disappointment, but there are glimmers of the old maverick spirit.

Shadowgun Legends is headed to Nintendo Switch and that's just the news we were hoping for

Yesterday it was announced that Shadowgun Legends is leaping over from iOS and Android and joining the Switch party too. Though there's no rough estimate as to when we can expect it, we're looking forward to the day we can add it to our libraries. 

Shadowgun Legends is MADFINGER Games' most recent FPS. Though it took a little while to launch on mobile, it was well worth the wait as it delivered console-quality graphics, engaging gameplay, responsive controls, and an awesome social scene. 

In its review we thought very highly of it, awarding it a well-deserved Gold Award. "Shadowgun Legends is a brilliantly balanced, eminently entertaining slice of mobile gaming. It's furious when it needs to be, it knows what you want, and it's not afraid to give it you. I think we have a new contender for the best FPS on mobile."

Pre-register for Alto's Odyssey on Android and get ready to surf the desert sands in style

Yesterday, while waiting for Suzy Cube to drop, Noodlecake Games had one major surprise for us after it, Snowman, and the official Alto's Odyssey Twitter account revealed that we only have to wait until next month to start surfing desert sands on Android. 

Alto's Adventure was such a huge hit that we couldn't wait to get our hands on Alto's Odyssey when it landed on iOS in February. Unsurprisingly we thought it was brilliant, awarding it a highly favourable Gold Award in its review. 

"Alto's Odyssey shows once again that simplicity doesn't need to mean simple. It shows that poise and grace are just as effective methods of engagement as noise and spectacle.

The Plantinum Award-winning puzzler Gorogoa suddenly launches on Android after a VERY short pre-registration

The Plantinum Award-winning puzzler Gorogoa suddenly launches on Android after a VERY short pre-registration

I'm not sure if there was a bit of an issue with the pre-registration, if there was even supposed to be a pre-registration, or if Annapurna just decided to launch it for fun, but Gorogoa is now out on Google Play. 

Gorogoa, if you've not had the pleasure of playing just yet, is a clever, hand-drawn puzzler which took several years to perfect. In it, you've got to investigate meticulously made panels to find the story in each of them. By dragging and dropping frames over each other in the right order you'll discover there's more to the challenge than meets the eye.

We thought it was rather delightful, awarding it an incredibly rare Platinum Award, saying: "Gorogoa's thousands of illustrations coalesce into a cleverly designed puzzler that's as compelling to play as it is to watch."
