Auro, by Dinofarm Games, is coming soon to iOS. The game lets players try out Bumping Tactics, where they push a monster back one tile, and stun them for one turn.
You play as Prince Auro as he explores procedurally generated dungeons and fights a variety of monsters by shoving them into the water or each other. The Prince is equipped with nine spells to help him battle his way through the forces of evil and you can choose either Story Mode where you play through his first quest or Play Mode to explore at your leisure.
There is no set release date, but Dinofarm Games assures us that Auro is coming soon.

Mochi Bits has released their relaxing yet challenging space-based puzzle game, ORBB. In ORBB, players are tasked with jumping from planet to planet while collecting all of the stars along the way.
While the game has been built to provide a challenge to those who want to race through, with each of the sixty levels having its own achievement for completing it within a set amount of time, players can also choose to relax and take it slow, with the game providing no risk of the player plummeting to their death.
ORBB has already gravitated towards the App Store, and is available for $2.99.

As much as I’d like to reveal to you that The Room Two, the great logic puzzle title from Fireproof Games, is currently on sale for 66% off, I’m afraid that you’ll need the spyglasses pictured below in order to see this news.
It’s a shame, really. You likely would have loved to have known that we gave the game 4.5 stars in our review, and that it currently carries an 8.9 rating over on QualityIndex. But alas, you’ll likely never know that this game is very much worth getting at this price, especially with The Room Three set to release next year.
The Bot Squad, by Ubisoft, is a free-to-play strategy game that mixes puzzles with tower defense.
Players control robots as they pick their way through Dynamo City’s trapped areas, searching for orbs. Beware though, because other robots want those orbs! So players will also have to defend their stockpiles from waves of invading robot forces with defensive units. The game will have 180 stages to complete and dozens of robots to manage. Ubisoft says that they will have regular free content updates that include new stages, units, and modes.
You’ll be able to check out The Bot Squad on October 16 in the App Store.
