Match-3 puzzler REACH classic proved a smash hit during its Canadian soft launch, and now developer B2tGame has brought it to mobile devices worldwide so you can see what all the fuss is about.
After topping the App Store charts for the puzzle, strategy and paid games categories in its home territory, the tile-matching title has brought its brand of accessible colour-combining gameplay to iOS and Android users across the globe.
REACH classic will put your brain through its paces with its strategically-rich gameplay. Players must astutely arrange a never-ending supply of tiles by colour, to prevent them from building up at the top of the screen. If they reach the bottom, you’re done for.
In the world of mobile gaming, truly well-made games can often be something of a rarity. Well-made games that feature female protagonists are even rarer, and while many games give you the option to choose between a male or female avatar, it's not often that the star of a game is a woman.
With that in mind, here's a few high-quality games that feature a woman not just as an avatar, but as the main character.
The latest update to Knights Chronicle brought us some balance changes and interesting new characters, but perhaps the most interesting addition of all is the game’s new mode. Guild Battle allows teams of players to test their collective strength against others, but participating in it isn’t as straightforward as you might think.
Underneath the basic premise of “beat as many other players as possible,” Guild Battle actually has some nuanced mechanics to it that can make the difference between being a mere contributor to your guild and a guild hero. Check out our tips below:
Well it was a tight one this week, but after a count, a recount, and a harried phone call with the game of the week administration in Strasbourg, we can now reveal that the winner of this week's game of the week award is midcore stealth banger, Sneak Ops.
The game sees you making your way through a maze-like structure, hiding from guards, laser trip-wires, and the roving eyes of sentry cameras. It's the stealth game with all of its frippery peeled back, and quite frankly it's pretty darn wonderful.
But why do we think it deserves to win our game of the week award? Not that it's up to us, but there's a damn good reason it's clearly resonated with so many of you.
Hi there, and welcome to our ever-increasing list of the very best games for iPhone. We're going to be updating this regularly with new content, so make sure you check back often, because you're not going to want to miss out on even one of the games we're including here. Trust me, they're that good.
You can click the links below to download the games from the App Store, and find out more about them. And if you've got some games you think should be included, feel free to chuck them into the comments section. Hopefully we can get a good bit of debate going!
Tomb of the Mask is a super-quick arcade dasher with remarkably simple swipe controls. It's also fiendishly tough, and if it gets your claws into you there's a very good chance that about every third second of your life is going to be consumed by thoughts of it. Honestly, it's very addictive.
But while it's easy to get to grips with what the game has to offer, there's still plenty of scope to learn more. That's where this list comes in. With these handy hints and tips you're going to be getting the sort of highscores that are going to put all of your friends to shame.
We've put a good few hours into the game now, and we're pretty sure we know what we're talking about. If you've got your own suggestions though, make your voice heard in the comments. That way we can all be horribly addicted to a game we're quite good at. Sick.
There are plenty of what you might call standard experiences on the App Store. You know the sort of game I'm talking about. A man wanders around hurting people in order to complete some task, quest, or mission. It's the way video games have been for a while now.
But there are other games out there that do things differently, that let you experience the world from a completely different point of view. And it's those games that we're going to be having a look at today.
This is by-no-means a complete or exhaustive list, but we reckon that these games are the best introduction to the kind of empathy and understanding that mobile gaming can offer up. If you've got your own suggestions then, feel free to stick them in the comments section at the bottom of the article. After all, the more we know, the more we grow.
Time certainly flies when you're having fun, and if you spend all of your life playing the best mobile games in the world, you best believe that time's flying like a bullet from a really big gun. Basically what I'm saying is that it's Thursday again, so it's time for you to pick your game of the week from these five choices.
There are some real gems in the mix this week, and there's going to be something for you whether you're a die-hard premium fan or don't mind dabbling in the shadowier world of free to play. We've got board games, we've got cats, we've got punching sleeping guards in the face, and we've got mutated radioactive zombie gits too.
If you want to make your voice heard and pick one of the games as this week's winner, there are a few ways you can do it. Leave a comment on this here article with your pick, tweet us your choice using the hashtag #148GOW, or just let us know on Facebook what you think deserves to win. And make sure to check back next week when we'll announce the victor.
It seems like every two weeks, we can expect some new and exciting things to come to Knights Chronicle. In the last update, there were some nice quality of life features added to the game, but aside from a couple new heroes, not anything huge to shake the game up too much.
This upcoming update, which should hit within the next 24 hours, promises much more than that. Balance changes to heroes, a whole new game mode, and–of course–some more heroes to gush over. See below for more details:
We've counted up all the votes, sent them off to the court of arbitration in Strasbourg and had them vetted by an independent panel of retired judges and this guy we know who said he was real honest. I tell you all of this so when I announce the winner of the game of the week award, you know that the result is infallible.
It's Math and Sorcery, by the way. A game all about, wait for it, Math and Sorcery. But don't let that get you down, because there's so much to enjoy in both the mathematical and dark-arts departments here that it'd be churlish to complain.
What does it mean to care about another human being? To worry about their hopes and desires, to show concern when they're putting themselves in danger? And when their dreams are in your hands, when their life is hanging in the balance because of you, do you have the strength of character to do what's right?
That's the idea at the heart of Papers, Please. For all that it's a simulator of a border crossing in some imaginary nation, it's really a game about how we treat each other, and about how we react when we have all the power.
It's a game that tries to teach us something, but does it in an entertaining, often harrowing way. If you want to know what sort of person you are, then playing Papers, Please is going to give you a pretty damn good indication.
Yeah, sure, we're a day later than usual with our game of the week award, but that just makes things more exciting. You've no doubt been waiting with baited breath for the contestants to be announced. And that's exactly what we're doing in this here article, so cool your jets.
It's an interesting mix this week. We've got premium, we've got free to play. We've got deep simulation and we've got super-fast reactions. We've got retro, modern, puzzle, and almost everything in between. But it's up to you now which one walks away the victor.
To vote you can just leave us a comment at the bottom of the article. Or tweet us using the hashtag #148GOW, or post on our Facebook page. That's it. That's all you have to do.Pretty darn easy right? Anyway, on with the picks, then on with the votes.
We’re continuing our pseudo-tier list for Knights Chronicle by listing our picks of the best heroes to have on your team in the Arena.
Again, because the criteria for what makes a hero so great in Knights Chronicle can be extremely situational, we’ve simply given our top three picks for best heroes by type that will generally serve you well in the Arena. See our picks below:
Tinned food is underrated. When the warning siren goes, and your suburban home is nuked into a radioactive pancake, what else are you going to depend on for sustenance down in the bunker? But if you’ve only got 60 seconds to gather supplies, you’ll have to pocket a lot of canned tomato soup. And everything else you and your family will need to stay alive. Then comes the tough part – spending countless days holed up in your fallout shelter, with only your family and mutant cockroaches for company. At least the cockroaches don’t nag.
So begins developer Robot Gentleman’s apocalyptic simulator 60 Seconds!. The game’s nightmare scenario is given a strong dose of dark humour throughout, helped by the 1950s, white-picket-fence backdrop. You take control of Ted, hell-bent on keeping his family alive, even when all around him has turned to ash. First released on PC, Nintendo Switch and iOS, 60 Seconds! received its debut on Android in December last year. It’s managed over a million sales across all platforms since then, and the latest DLC is sure to draw more players.
After another close-fought battle, and plenty of dissent among the ranks, we can now reveal the winner of this week's game of the week award. And if you've been paying attention to all of this psuedo-military speak, you've probably worked out that it's The Horus Heresy: Legions.
It's a card game of surprising depth and accessibility, that sees you building a deck of Space Marines, daemons, Imperial Guard troopers, and giant tanks to take out all of your foes. Think Hearthstone but set in the grim-dark-darkly-grim-grim future of Games Workshop's Warhammer 40K universe.
