Crash Bandicoot: On The Run! spins onto mobile in 2021

Posted by Olly Smith on October 27th, 2020

There’s a Crash Bandicoot endless runner coming to mobile sometime next spring.

Its publisher, King, has announced Crash Bandicoot: On the Run! will release on iOS and Android devices in Spring 2021, and the App Store listing suggests a launch date of 25th March.

This mobile spin-off to the popular platformer series will deliver the familiar classic gameplay that fans of the franchise will recognise. You’ll spin, jump and slide through the usual roster of Crash Levels playing as either Crash or his sister, Coco. There are hidden paths to discover, which are a lot more dangerous, but offer the potential of bigger rewards.

Physics-based tower defense game Goblin Raiders out now on mobile

Posted by Olly Smith on October 26th, 2020

Indie developer Arif Games has released Goblin Raiders on iOS and Android.

It’s a retro-inspired tower defense game where you have to defend your castle from hordes of goblins who are attempting to scale the walls. The game offers a wide range of options to fight them with. You can drop rocks on them, burn them, poison them or fire arrows at them, but be warned that they will fight back.

Many of these weapons suit the medieval-themed setting, so you can expect crossbows and other weaponry from that time period to make an appearance, but there are also sillier weapons such as bowling balls to use in the more ludicrous scenarios, with an overall choice of 30 items in your arsenal to use.

If you're playing Genshin Impact without spending money, you'll always need to be looking for ways to optimize your play to maximize rewards without getting stuck in a position where you're tempted to spend. The most obvious trap here is the game's gacha system that is constantly dangling cool new characters in front of you in hopes that you'll want to go all-in on Wishes.

Primogems are the only currency you can use on Genshin Impact's virtual slot machine, but you don't always need to be spending them to try and get new characters. In fact, at times that can be a really bad idea. Read on for some tips from a seasoned gacha player about how to manage your premium currency most efficiently.

See below for the most important currencies Genshin Impact offers, how to collect them, and what you should spend them on. This guide is a resource for early game players to know what they're in for in terms of grind, as well as what they should hold onto heading into the late game.
