The Sims Mobile cheats and tips - Everything you need to know about the ASOS event

ASOS has brought all of the fashion they love to share to The Sims Mobile, meaning you can deck your Sims out in the latest threads. Not bad!

Here we've put together a bunch of tips you need in order to get ASOS tokens fast and quickly gear up in the latest fashion flavour.

Pocket Gamer Podcast: Episode 439 - Labo, Oddmar

It's Labo Day (for everyone except Switch owners in the UK).

To celebrate, Ric tells James and Em all about how he built a remote control bug out of cardboard at Nintendo HQ, and also how he broke a robot's shoe and had to have it fixed.

In addition there's chat about the excellent new platformer Oddmar, mysterious adventure The Mooseman, and Platinum Games's upcoming mobile debut World of Demons.

App Army Assemble: Vandals - Does it rely too heavily on the GO structure?

App Army Assemble: Vandals - Does it rely too heavily on the GO structure?

Another week, another App Army Assemble, and we're stepping into some familiar territory here. Vandals is an artistic puzzler where you need to skirt around the cops, tag walls, and head on off to the next stage without getting caught. 

No, it isn't an extension of Square Enix's  GO games, but it's certainly got a lot of similar actions. From turn-based mechanics to the marked-out, isometric layout of the levels, we'd be lying if we said it was totally original. 

But, what does our App Army think of it? Let's find out.

Review: Soap Dodgem review - A puzzler that scrubs up well

There's a lot to be said for a simple, polished puzzler that does everything with competence and restraint.

That's Soap Dodgem in nutshell. It might not set your heart racing, and there's a chance you'll forget all about it within few weeks.

But in the meantime, it provides 100 levels of friction-free pleasantness. And that's something that not every mobile game can claim these days.

If you break your Nintendo Labo pieces you can get replacements, but it'll cost you

If you break your Nintendo Labo pieces you can get replacements, but it'll cost you

With Nintendo Labo finally available for mostly everyone outside of Europe, I've no doubt players are tucking into their kits with glee. But, the question of what happens when a piece breaks has been somewhat of a mystery until recently.

Now that our own Editor Ric Cowley has gotten his hands on it and people have starting revealing their various unboxing videos, we know that you're encouraged to keep the templates in case you want to make a replacement. Of course, there are more instructions for fixing items too - my guess is with lots of tape. 

However, Ninty launched another part of its Labo range today where you can buy replacements for broken pieces. So far there are 11 listings across the robot and variety kits, but they're not exactly cheap if you're replacing a lot of them. 

Review: Brew Town review - A hipster's paradise or a flat, hot pint of something cheap and nasty?

Review: Brew Town review - A hipster's paradise or a flat, hot pint of something cheap and nasty?

Craft beer is one of those odd recent developments that caught on with a certain set of people for some reason. Brew Town poses a question - is there a crossover between people who love esoteric booze and people who play free to play sims?

Although to be honest, it's not a question that really needs an answer. The meat of the game could be wrapped around any sort of stick and the outcome would be markedly similar.

This is a solid simulation with some good ideas, some great ideas, and the same repetitive nature that puts a lot of people off the genre.

Harry's hot takes: It's time to make gaming great again

What do you think is the worst thing about gaming? Before you answer, I'll answer for you - it's everything. Gaming is a horrible broken shell of its former self, a rotting carcass infected with fat maggots, all of them writhing around in a mixture of bliss and agony.

You might think that there are some good parts, some redeeming features, some semblance of joy that keeps your passion for the hobby burning. But you're wrong. You're deluded. You're blinded to the truth because all the takes you've been given on the subject were cold and meaningless.

What this discussion needs is hot takes. In fact, it needs the hottest takes. The sort of takes that you need to wear two pairs of heat-resistant gloves to handle, lest your fingers be burnt to the bone by the sheer, overwhelming hotness.
