The best new games we played this week

Posted by Jessica Famularo on May 26th, 2017



We were quite busy this week. A bunch of big mobile games launched over the past few days, alongside a few teeny surprises. There're lots of quality games to load your phone with. We've gone and picked out five of our favorites for the week.

Magikarp Jump beginner's guide

Posted by Jessica Famularo on May 26th, 2017

Magikarp Jump is a mystifying little game. Part Tamagotchi, part idle clicker, there's not a whole lot of video game there, per se, but for some reason we can't help coming back to it again and again.

Your goal is to train up a little Magikarp to be the strongest, best jumper by feeding it endless amounts of food and giving it plenty of exercise. It sounds simplistic, but there's actually a good bit going on beneath the surface. We have a few tips to help you rise through the ranks in the game's early hours.

Posted by Jessica Famularo on May 25th, 2017

Zombie Gunship Survival Beginner's Guide

Posted by Jessica Famularo on May 25th, 2017

The much anticipated Zombie Gunship Survival is here. In this latest entry in the Zombie Gunship franchise, you're tasked with supporting ground troops and protecting your base from the zombie horde. There's a lot of rich base building fun, and plenty of weapons to upgrade.

Mordheim: Warband Skirmish brings tabletop action to the small screen

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Legendary Games has just launched Mordheim: Warband Skirmish, a new turn-based action game for iOS and Android.

Using the central premise of Warhammer’s tabletop spin-off Mordheim, the game is set amongst the ruins of the eponymous city after its destruction by a comet. You control a group of scavengers scouring the rubble for valuable shards of space rock, but in the midst of a civil war, the city is fraught with danger. This danger is primarily posed by rival factions fighting over who should sit on the Emperor’s throne (I guess it must be really comfy or something).

Combat involves strategically taking out your opponents using the turn-based system, but it’s up to you what play-style you choose. You can go all Splinter Cell and hide in the shadows waiting for the right moment to loose an arrow, or go full Rambo and confront enemies head-on instead. The mercenary faction you align yourself with will partly determine your approach. There are three to choose from (with more promised as DLC), each boasting a slightly different skill base – the Reiklanders, the Marienburgers and the Middenheimers.

Rival warbands are controlled by players online, so you won’t necessarily get an easy ride. It’s down to you to customise and train your fighters so they’re ready to take on whoever’s lurking in Mordheim’s dodgy alleyways.

Legendary Games isn’t the first developer to adapt Warhammer lore into a mobile game. In fact, there’s a Warhammer spin on virtually every genre. But rather than awkwardly emulating Angry Birds or Clash of Clans, Mordheim: Warband Skirmish stays faithful to the turn-based strategy of Games Workshop’s tabletop triumph.

Whether you’re a Warhammer fan or just looking for a strategic action game to test your prowess online, you can download Mordheim: Warband Skirmish from the App Store and Google Play.

The Pro sets itself apart from its predecessor, the Honor 8, with a host of premium updates that boost the device’s graphical and processing capabilities.

With a 5.7 inch, 1440x2560 QHD display, the Honor 8 Pro features crystal-clear visuals. You can enjoy your games with the highest level of detail, whether you're gaming indoors or outside. The display, paired with the Honor 8 Pro’s impressive graphic capabilities, make this a prime device for mobile VR, too.

Chip Set & Performance

The Honor 8 Pro truly shines in its incredible graphics processing abilities. The phone boasts a Kirin 960 processor that features four 2.4GHz cores and four 1.8GHz cores. Still not sold? The phone also is packed with 6GB RAM to really help the phone glide through intensive tasks and handle a lot of multitasking.

The phone’s chipset makes it one of the best phones for gaming performance, especially as mobile games continue to advance rapidly.

Playing Time

Impressive mobile gaming performance doesn’t mean a whole lot when you have to be plugged into an outlet to enjoy it. That’s not a problem for the Honor 8 Pro, which has a battery life of 1.5 days under high performance, and 2 full days under normal workloads.

If you’re a mobile gamer looking to make the jump to Android, you can’t do any better than the Honor 8 Pro. The phone provides unbeatable performance at a price tag that won’t bust your budget.
