The Isle Tide Hotel review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on September 20th, 2023
Our rating: starstarhalfstarblankstarblankstar :: LOW TIDE
This FMV game presumes you’ll want to play it exhaustively to uncover its secrets but doesn’t really give you reasons to want to do that.

Motorsport Manager 4 review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on September 14th, 2023
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: RACING REHASH
The latest entry in one of the finest management series on mobile is a very small and safe step forward for the franchise.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on August 30th, 2023
Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: A NEW DAWN
This game is nothing new in more ways than one, but it is now bursting with variety and is perhaps the most mobile friendly way to deckbuild around.

Six Ages 2: Lights Going Out review

The latest game from A Sharp takes its unique blend of strategy and narrative elements to new heights.

Geo Gods review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on July 31st, 2023
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: GODS PLAN
This puzzly card game asks you to learn quite a bit before you can really start to play it well, but doing so is very rewarding.

Return to Monkey Island review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on July 27th, 2023
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: SECRETS OUT
This adventure game finally puts an appropriate end cap on Guybrush Threepwood’s story while also finding creative ways to keep an old style of game feeling fresh and modern.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Campbell Bird on July 25th, 2023
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: STRATEGY SLOTS
This game wedges compelling roguelike and deck-building systems into a slot machine to create a surprisingly strategic experience that feels perfect for mobile play.

Just like the creatures it is about, this game is oddly exactly what it appears to be and also not.

Motorsport legends NASCAR announce an upcoming standalone game developed by experts Hutch

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 22nd, 2023

NASCAR often gets a bad reputation outside of America, but there is a certain charm to it with its close side-by-side action and its focus on pure speed, but it never managed to really massively break out internationally. Now, there's a chance that will change thanks to automotive game experts Hutch announcing a partnership with the racing giants.

Hutch has staked a claim as perhaps the top racing developer on mobile, with big hits like the Supercar smash Race Kings, the more cerebral Top Drives, or the officially licensed F1 Clash, perhaps the biggest testament to their talents. This experience with another of the world's top car sports with be no doubt invaluable as they develop this NASCAR title, and at a pretty big milestone.

Let fly the birds of war as a new Clan debuts in Northgard

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 21st, 2023

Name the most Norse bird you can think of, then give it a twist because Playdigious is introducing not the Raven clan, mostly because they already exist, but the Clan of the Eagle in Northgard’s latest DLC. If you find gathering resources a challenge, then you are definitely going to want to see this.

The Clan of the Eagle, or Hraesvelg, are led by Grif because Big Bird sounded too silly. As a young child, Grif lived through the destruction of their parent’s clan, before being adopted by Hraesvelg. Living through this, then rising to the command of their new clan shows levels of adaptability that gave them the skills to be a perfect leader.

CookeRun: Tower of Adventures is almost ready to take out of the oven

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 20th, 2023

You may have thought that a game series revolving around biscuits in battle would not have the best-staying power, but Devsisters have proven that so wrong with these massively popular CookieRun series. And now, the latest entry in this delicious series has finally revealed its name; CookieRun: Tower of Adventures.

Previously known as Project B, presumably for baked goods or perhaps Bookie, Tower of Adventurers will be a casual action game with real-time action combat, and will be the franchise's first 3D, for maximum snack power. It will even feature cooperative play because no one cookie is a full meal.

The spooky season picks up speed with KartRider: Drift

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 15th, 2023

Get yourself a headstart on the Halloween season, as Nexon and Nitro Studios bring a scarily earlier seasonal update to its racer, KartRider: Drift. Season 4: Hallo-Drift brings spooky new tracks, characters, and even a striking new mode for everyone to sink their fangs into.

Crossover Mode is a brand new way to play, and combines aspects from the two core existing modes; Speed and Item. Item boxes will spawn on the track for racers to collect and use, and you will be able to fill up that Boost Gauge through drifting to make sure you get that box before anyone else. It’s a combination of the best that Drift has to offer.

Two of Resident Evil's best titles will be coming to iPhone 15 later this year

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 14th, 2023

If you are looking for a new phone then the upcoming iPhone 15 could jump to the top of your wishlist with the recent announcement by Capcom that Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil Village will be available on the Pro and Pro Max devices. You can also grab these outstanding titles on an iPad Air or iPad Pro with an M1 chip or later.

This marks the first time that these two titles will be available on smartphones, and they are definitely worth the price. Whilst they don’t retain much of the straight original survival horror aspects of the original instalments, both leaning a bit more toward action, both have won Game of the Year accolades, and Resident Evil 4 is no doubt one of the most beloved in the series.

Put your thinking caps on as The Isle Tide Hotel launches on mobile

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 13th, 2023

When a developer puts out a mystery game influenced by a show like Twin Peaks, you know you are in for an incredibly interesting time, and that is what The Isle Tide Hotel promises. In this interactive mystery movie, you will need to collect clues, solve puzzles, and always remember not to break the Etiquettes.

Once a year, for three nights only, the Isle Tide Hotel opens its doors to a group of people with only one thing bringing them; their search for the meaning of life. This year, however, the answer is within reach, provided they hand over a sacrifice to their founder, Dr Aniston, who promises this act will conclude the search.

It’s time for kick-off as Konami launches eFootball 2024

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 8th, 2023

It might be hard to remember but there was a time when FIFA, or EA Sports FC as it is now called, wasn’t the undisputed king of football games, with PES giving the series a run for its money back in the PS2 era. Now, Konami has released the latest free instalment of the series with eFootball 2024.

Players will be able to take control of big officially licenced clubs such as Manchester United FC, FC Bayern Munchen, Internazionale Milano, AC Milan, Arsenal FC, and FC Barcelona. These teams and more will be fully recreated from kits to stadiums to squads, with eFootball being the only place you can play in famous venues like Spotify Camp Nou and Stadio Olimpico.

Play that theme music as Cypher 007 sneaks onto Apple Arcade later this month

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 7th, 2023

Square Enix marks another one for the dumpster with SinoAlice Global confirming closure

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 6th, 2023

In what is becoming a far too common occurrence, Square Enix has sounded the death knell for yet another of its mobile properties, with SinoAlice Global facing the axe. The RPG from Pokelabo and that enigma of a mind, Yoko Taro, will terminate on November 15th.

SinoAlice didn’t have the longest, or easiest, lifespan, originally launching in 2017 in Japan, following their international launch in 2020. Fast forward to the end of 2022, and it was taken offline in Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan, before the full global closure this year, barely turning three years old. It's a shame, but perhaps the writing was on the wall from an early stage.

Jagex goes to the dark side of gaming with the Runescape Hero Pass

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 5th, 2023

In a move that always proves incredibly divisive, Jagex has put a target on their flagship game's back with the introduction of a Hero Pass to Runescape. This new battle pass system will reward all levels of its players with rewards, provided you sink enough hours into it.

Replacing the Yak Track and Challenge System, Hero Pass has been dubbed an always-on system, where you will rack up Hero Points as you play and complete the daily, weekly, and special missions. There will be 120 levels of content, with 99 standard and the last 21 being heroic, and you will have three months to climb the ladder. If you manage to hit level 99, you will also get a ten-level jump start on the next Hero Pass.
