Remember remember, Monument Valley 2 is coming to Android on 6th November

thumbnail

Monument Valley 2 was first revealed to the world during an Apple keynote, so it’s not necessarily surprising that those shifty iOS gamers have had exclusive access to it since June. This period of smug exclusivity will come to an end on November 6th, when Monument Valley 2 dusts off the firework debris and clocks in at Google Play for the first time. Monument Valley 2 is a marquee mobile game, with gorgeous spare visuals, Escher-esque puzzles, and a quietly moving storyline. Its predecessor even made it ...

Here’s how to download Warhammer: Doomwheel for free on Android

thumbnail

In short, just go to Google Play and download it, because Warhammer: Doomwheel is currently free on Android. Games Workshop games can be a bit off-putting to casual gamers, but Warhammer: Doomwheel is different. Instead of rolling dice and shuffling orcs strategically you have to barrel through a Mad Max-esque wasteland killing chumps with your rolling Doomwheel. The game is a straightforward arcade romp in which the aim is just to get as far as you can, destroying as many lives as you can. In a cycle ...

Death Road to Canada will complete its long march to Android on October 26th

thumbnail

It’s been a rough few months for Android gamers, who were forced to look on helplessly as their smug iOS-gaming cousins played Rocketcat and Madgarden’s excellent Death Road to Canada without a care in the world. That terrible period is finally coming to an end with the news that Death Road to Canada will be out on Android later this month, October 26th. The game – a joint project by celebrated indie developers Madgarden and Rocketcat Games – sees you embarking on a deadly road trip through ...

Pukk is a cute but unsettling mobile game starring a head, coming next month

thumbnail

Most people try to avoid decapitation, because it’s generally considered fatal. But for the cheerful chap who appears in Pukk, decapitation is the start of an enjoyable treasure hunting adventure in a Nordic snowscape. A door closes, a window opens. The head, sensibly – if belatedly – protected by a helmet, slides around on the ice, smashing blocks, avoiding polar bears, and collecting treasure. Naturally, treasure isn’t much use to a decapitated head, so he spends the proceeds of his hunt on fancier helmets, to prolong the ...

Rovio teams up with Iron Maiden to bring Eddie the Bird to Angry Birds Evolution

To celebrate Halloween, Rovio has teamed up with the elderly metal band Iron Maiden to temporarily add a character called Eddie the Bird to Angry Birds Evolution. Eddie – a tribute to Iron Maiden’s gruesome skeletal mascot Eddie the Head – will have four stages of evolution, each representing a different Iron Maiden album, including such classics as Hell is Burning, Yellow Thunderhog, and Don’t Smack Talk My Iguana*. Two other new birds join Eddie, along with three new pigs on the other side of the conflict, and ...

There’s a Herocraft Humble Mobile Bundle

thumbnail

The Humble Mobile Bundle featuring games made in Korea has just come to an end. Following close on its heels, as if eager to establish geopolitical equilibrium, is a Humble Mobile Bundle featuring titles made by Russian studio Herocraft. Herocraft has been around since the days of Java games on handsets with *whisper it* buttons. Many developers from that era failed to adapt to the whizzbang age of superflash touchscreen smartphones, but Herocraft is made of sterner stuff than most, and it can turn its many RSI-riddled hands to ...

Big robots ahoy! Gundam Battle coming to the West in 2018

thumbnail

Namco Bandai has just announced that the closed beta for its forthcoming big robot game Gundam Battle is now closed. The game will be available in the West next year. Gundam Battle is a game about large robots that like to cooperate creatively on initiatives that help disadvantaged people and protect the environment. Only joking. Actually they try to kill each other. And if the feedback from the closed beta is anything to go by it’s pretty fun. According to the press release from Namco Bandai, “The second- and seven-day ...
