Finnish developer Boomlagoon has released a teaser trailer of their forthcoming side-scrolling action platformer, Monsu.

Looking like a pretty cute auto-runner, Monsu has another trick up its sleeve, courtesy of the many cards that you can collect as you play.

Coming from some of the minds behind Angry Birds, there will be dozens of customizable characters to get to know, with the hope that Monsu is more character-driven than most running platformers.

A series of online tournaments besides the rich single-player world should ensure there’s plenty of fun to be had when Monsu arrives on the App Store later this summer.

Check out the trailer below to see just what to expect very soon!

Thomas Was Alone Removes Option to Instantly Unlock All Levels

iPad Only App - Designed for iPad

Shock! Horror! it turns out that Bossa Studios, whose port of Mike Bithell‘s Thomas Was Alone made its way onto the App Store last week, want you to actually play through the game as you’re meant to.

In the version of the game that released last week, an option existed for players to skip levels, allowing them to skip straight to the end and miss out on the story of Thomas and co, as spoken by Danny Wallace. In today’s update, that option has now been removed – meaning players will now have to actually “skillfully play through all of the levels to complete them rather than cheating and skipping to the end.”

You too can discover how alone Thomas really was, as the game is now available for $8.99 for iPad.
