Heavily inspired by classic children's literature, PAPER Anne is UsFun Games’ new puzzle platformer which transports you into a papercraft world of mystery and fairytales. With nods to the Nut Cracker, Alice in Wonderland, and more, PAPER Anne has finally unfolded its way onto the App Store.

PAPER Anne’s whimsical tale begins when the eponymous Anne finds herself swept up in a familiar tale, told in a very unfamiliar way. Set in a papercraft world where Alice is a no-show and the wickedness of the evil Queen of Hearts has taken hold, it's down to you as the titular Anne to save the day by solving the game's many hand-drawn puzzles and piecing its story together.

Airdrop into mayhem in Grand Battle Royale from GameSpire

If you’re a fan of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), but lament the fact that you can’t play it on the go, then you’re in luck. Hong Kong developer GameSpire has released a brand new battle royale title for Android and iOS – Grand Battle Royale.

Of course, battle royale games aren’t unheard of on mobile, but most of them look identical. Grand Battle Royale eschews all that realism business for a playfully pixellated take on the genre. It’s like Minecraft plus guns, or PUBG built out of Lego.

Why the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Sony Xperia XZ2 are not as good as the iPhone

Posted by Harry Slater on February 26th, 2018

Samsung Galaxy S9 product shot

Over the past couple of days we've seen two massive Android phones announced over at MWC. There's Samsung's Galaxy S9, and Sony's Xperia XZ2. Both of them are pretty impressive in terms of stats, and both companies seem to be focusing (if you'll excuse the pun) on releasing phones with impressive cameras.

But if you ask me, neither of the devices has the chops to knock the iPhone off the top spot, especially when it comes to gaming. Why's that you ask? Well give me a moment and I'll explain exactly what I mean.

Our top 5 characters from casual RPG Creature Quest

Creature Quest definitely lives up to its name with a host of collectible creatures based on fantasy tales and world mythologies. To celebrate Creature Quest’s first birthday, we’re going to lay out what we think are the five best characters in the game. Let’s get to it.

5. Celestial Sentinel

The Celestial Sentinel is Creature Quest’s best healer, hands down. Not only can he resurrect and heal your party members, he’ll also restore your team members’ mana. If he dies, he can revive and heal the rest of your team, including himself. He’s the ideal safety net.

More monsters to collect and evolve in Creature Quest’s anniversary update

A laid-back mix of RPG and TCG, Creature Quest is all about building your deck, evolving your creatures and winning in battle. It’s the creation of VC Mobile, set up by Might and Magic producer Jon Van Caneghem. There are elements of that classic PC game here, but for the most part, this is a modern, mobile experience. Now one year on from its launch, it's just received a new update with some big changes.

Firstly, you’ll gain more loot in the Battle Tower, making your fights more fruitful. You’ll also receive rewards on a sliding scale, based on how many of your creatures survive the fray, so the better you do, the more you’ll win. New players will also benefit from a week of check-in rewards and a Legendary creature to kickstart your deck.

You’ve also got two new automatic features to play with. Auto-battle lets you leave your captured creatures to handle the fight, while auto-pickup hoovers up the loot you stumble upon exploring quest maps. These optional features should make grinding less onerous.

The update introduces three new creatures to collect. The Legendary-level Cacaelia and Siege Construct and the Rare-level Lightning Nymph – a Battle Tower reward that is guaranteed to come with at least three Combo Dots.

Beyond the update’s under-the-hood tweaking, there’s a busy diary of in-game events and dungeon challenges planned. There’ll be a Valentine’s Day take-over and an exclusive quest, Battlefield of Love, between February 9-19. Creature Quest will get a St Patrick’s Day take-over in March, along with another one-off quest, the unsettlingly-titled Ooze Cruise. And there’s much more planned for 2018.

If you want to join the creature-catching, monster-battling fun, download Creature Quest for free on iOS and Android.

PAPER Anne is a brand-new puzzle game from developer UsFun Games, slated for release on 27th February. It’s a charming, family-friendly fairy-tale that’s sure to warm hearts.

Anne is a paper girl, in a paper world. But this world isn’t quite the right fit for her. She’s surrounded by characters straight out of the annals of children’s fiction, with references to The Steadfast Tin Soldier, Nut Cracker, The Ugly Duckling and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. You’ll take instructions from the Cheshire Cat, fight at the Tin Soldier’s side, question the Queen of Hearts and overcome the Mouse King’s evil spell. As you help or hinder the characters from these classics, you’ll acquire pieces of Anne’s story, and she’ll move closer to discovering her rightful world.

Dissidia Final Fantasy OO - Master the Bravery system

It's time to get brave. Specifically, we're going to talk about how to master the Bravery system that is at the very heart of combat in Dissidia Final Fantasy OO, which makes battles a matter of good timing even though they are 100 percent turn-based.

If you've played the Dissidia Final Fantasy console games, you already have at least an idea of how Bravery works. Every character has a Bravery or BRV score, which is displayed to the right of the health bars for the characters on your team and above the bars of your enemies.

Unlike most other studios, the developers behind the new social casino app Penny Arcade Slots can boast a wealth of realworld experience having built slot machines for casinos around the world. And now it's welcoming players to put its latest digital creation through its paces as Penny Arcade Slots begins its closed beta test.

Penny Arcade Slots features a mix of slot machine mini-games themed around characters from folklore.

Alongside them are a colourful cast of characters including Aladdin, his Genie and a man who looks a lot like Jumanji’s Van Pelt (sans elephant gun).

Bluehole PNIX has just recently added a brand new update that aims to sink even more competition and party antics into its arcade multiplayer, Mini Golf King.

Shrinking down the noble sport onto mobile, developer Bluehole PNIX adds in a fair share of whimsical features that you're unlikely to find at your local Putt-Putt golf course. Bomb traps, accelerator pads, tube slides and swinging drawbridges are just a few of the obstacles you'll encounter over 30 levels, adding just the right amount of zaniness to compliment its serene visuals and laid back gameplay.

Released in Japan last year, Opera Omnia is the first installment of Dissidia Final Fantasy to end up on the mobile platform. As with the other Dissidia titles, it throws together the greatest characters from the world of Final Fantasy to fight alongside each other. Now, publisher Square Enix (Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts) and developer Team Ninja (Ninja Gaiden, Dead or Alive) has launched the game worldwide. Time to dust off your gunblades.

The themes of the story will ring a bell if you’ve played a Dissidia Final Fantasy title before. A multidimensional safe-haven, Opera Omnia is a world forged by two gods to give tired warriors respite. But whilst familiar Final Fantasy faces were kicking up their heels in paradise, monsters found a way in. To restore zen, a magic moogle needs to collect ‘light’, and can only do so with your help. Assemble a band of famous heroes and villains from the Final Fantasy universe, and go to war with the unwelcome arrivals.

Battle in Opera Omnia is turn-based, taking place across eclectic arenas – from verdant woodlands to gothic chambers. Bravery is a new addition to combat. Charge your Bravery gauge through successive special attacks, and unleash it at the right time to strike a devastating blow.

The game features a lot of JRPG elements, but also allows for a multiplayer experience. Invite your friends online and you can fight monsters through rifts in space and time – and win rewards while you’re at it.
If you’re desperate to swing a Buster Sword as Cloud Strife again, or you’re just a fan of JRPGs and turn-based battles, you’ll find something to enjoy in Dissidia Final Fantasy: Opera Omnia. You can download it for free from Google Play and the App Store.

Posted by Nicholas Tylwalk on January 29th, 2018

Delve into the crowded halls of the Play Store and you’ll find mobile fantasy strategy MMOs-a-plenty.

The game – which first hit digital store shelves in 2016 – lets players run wild, collecting their own cast of kooky combatants to better build up their own army before fighting with others online. Visuals are rendered fully in 3D, with Lords Mobile’s colourful and cartoony art-style going some way to entice Android users to experience the game’s fleshed-out strategic gameplay.
