Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: VISUAL VALUE

Our rating: starstarhalfstarblankstarblankstar :: TOO FAR GONE
This FMV game is most interesting as a curious cultural artifact and little else.

Resident Evil 4 review

By Campbell Bird on February 14th, 2024
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: REMADE BEYOND RECOGNITION
Seeing modern, major releases come to mobile is worth celebrating, but that doesn’t change the fact that this “re-make” is fairly disappointing.

Posted by Shaun Walton on March 4th, 2024

Get ready to have that classic song stuck in your head, as Phobies celebrates its second anniversary with the release of its latest update; Birthday Bash, Monster Mash. Starting March 5th and lasting for four weeks, it will be a month of nightmarish events, offers and surprises.

Kicking off, there will be a total of seven new Phobies to recruit and use across five maps full of new obstacles for you to master and make a suite of new strategies to contend with. Prometheus has the ability to create and destroy lava tiles to control the battlefield, but can also safely traverse them itself.

Kingdom: The Blood blows past one million pre-registrations within the month ahead of March 5th release

Posted by Shaun Walton on March 1st, 2024

Back on February 5th, YJM Games announced to the world that pre-orders had opened for their upcoming action RPG Kingdom: The Blood, based on the hit Netflix series. That was just under a month ago, and the response has been crazy, with over one million people signing up.

YJM Games has described Kingdom: The Blood as an action RPG that has taken the soulslike concept, and taken it to the Joseon Dynasty. Players will be contesting with zombies flying in from all directions in fast-paced combat, where the best course of action may be to flee. It’s an interesting-sounding game, but even so, the numbers are a little surprising.

Death Stranding iOS saves are as hard to detect as BTs

Posted by Campbell Bird on February 29th, 2024
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

This isn't a review of Death Stranding on iOS so much as it is an announcement that I will not be reviewing it. I posted some impressions earlier this month about the release where I mentioned my intent to finish it, but I just... can't. This is not from a lack of desire, to be clear. It's from this port being particularly awful in a crucial way: managing saves.

Every time I boot up Death Stranding on my iPad, I have no idea if it will actually load my most recent save. Sometimes after the 90+ second load time I am right where I left off. Sometimes, the game seemingly accidentally loads an old save and I just have to go into the system menu to reload to the more recent one. And at other times still, my most recent saves appear to have completely vanished.

Call of Duty Warzone Mobile finally gets a release date after year of anticipation

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 29th, 2024

I play a lot of games of all genres, and I can say with certainty I am the worst in the world at multiplayer shooters, but even I got into Call of Duty Warzone for a while, mostly as the designated bullet magnet. Soon, everyone can take the enticing gunplay on the go with the upcoming release of Call of Duty: Warzone Mobile.

For the past year, Warzone Mobile has been in Limited Release, with the developers gathering feedback from players and squashing some pesky bugs, and now the global release is imminent. Set for March 21st, it will launch with two huge maps.

Gryphline releases its RPG Ex Astris including crossover with iconic mobile game

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 28th, 2024

The day of reckoning foretold in legends has finally arrived, as Gryphline has released their real-time, turn-based hybrid RPG Ex Astris. Forge forward onto a planet of untold mysteries as you seek to unveil the truth behind the dread Astramorphs.

Players will step into the shoes of Yan, an Investigator who joins up with Vi3 to explore Allindo, a planet where the sun never sets, locking the world in eternal sunshine. Huge ring-shaped storms split the globe into two hemispheres, where all manner of wondrous creatures await you to discover.

Throw yourself into some turn-based strategy with the release of Odokonia

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 27th, 2024

If you are looking for a new turn-based builder strategy contained on a hex grid, then boy are you in luck as the new game Odokonia fulfils your incredibly specific requests. Grab your friends and proceed to completely obliterate them in some good old-fashioned explosive fun.

Odokonia is a strategy game where players build up bases around a randomised map in a turn-based fashion, and then delve into the fog of war to find and eliminate each other. There is an incredible amount of synergy between units here, such as soldiers being able to man turrets on boats or dive from them onto enemies for a spot of piracy.

An iconic strategy series will be coming to the palm of your hand with Age of Empires Mobile

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 26th, 2024

Back in my adolescence, more years ago than I care to admit nowadays, I was enamoured with a little strategy game called Age of Empires 2, howdoyouturnthison amirite? It was and has remained, an iconic entry in the series, and soon we can enjoy this strategy staple on the go with Age of Empire Mobile.

Many hands will be involved with this project, with TiMi Studio Group, World’s Edge, and the team behind the Age of Empire franchise all working together. We got our first teaser of the title in a recent showcase event, along with an announcement that testing will begin soon.

Version 1.4 of Reverse: 1999 will be landing later this month crammed to the edges with content

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 23rd, 2024

Free up your diary for February 29th, as Bluepoch has announced the impending release of the award-winning Reverse: 1999s Version 1.4 update. The Prisoner in the Cave is an Ancient Greece-themed update with new recruits, gameplay modes, and plenty of rewards to gain.

Let’s start where we all like; the new firepower. Phase one brings us the Beyond the World of Matters banner, which increases the odds to draw the six-star arcanist named 37, a powerful Mental attacker who can increase their team's ATK. Phase two comes with the Seeker in the Cave banner, which offers another six-star called 6, a mysterious character with little information at the moment.

Take control of a two-fisted detective in a broken world with Brok the InvestiGator

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 22nd, 2024

As I have mentioned a few times, I love silly, stupid humour, but it is even better when it is backed by substance, which is why BROK the InvestiGator hitting mobile is quite interesting. It has a name that makes you laugh, but there's a lot behind it.

The game follows the adventures of Brok, a former boxer turned detective in a world where animals have replaced humans. He lives with GRaff, the son of his deceased wife, in a world of two halves. The rich live in a protective dome, whereas the others struggle to survive outside amidst the ambient air pollution.

Aether Gazer releases Version 2.1 update along with two powerful new characters

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 21st, 2024

Aether Gazer has recently debuted its Version 2.1 update, A Night Falls Red, following Odin and Gengchen's journey in the Source Layer after entering and dominating it in the past story. It also brings a special new event and two powerful S-rank Modifiers.

There may only be two new Modifiers, but there is something for everyone here. TaiYi - Gengchan is a Ranged hero who hits like a truck from the safety of afar. She packs three skills which deal varying degrees of Water Damage to enemies, so you can choose just how badly you wish to humiliate your foe.

Embrace your sordid dreams of licking paintings in Please, Touch The Artwork 2

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 20th, 2024

Throughout my life, I would call myself a fan of precisely one artwork, otherwise I, like many other people ruined by this generation, lack the attention span for brushstrokes and the like. If there were more games like Please, Touch The Artwork 2 though, that might change, as it brings some interactivity to the frames.

Developed by the one-man army of Studio Waterzooi, this new virtual gallery is composed entirely of works by James Ensor, a Belgium Moder Art pioneer, and a man who, through the eyes of this non-expert, painted some pretty weird yet somehow captivating works. I’m no art critic, but I am a connoisseur of weird, and I can approve of these.

Tower of God: New World is harbouring a few fugitives in latest collaboration with The Seven Deady Sins

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 19th, 2024

Tower of God: New World has a good track record with big collaborations and incredibly generous rewards, and now Netmarble has landed another top name, with the ongoing team-up with The Seven Deadly Sins, including three new characters and a bevvy of events to complete.

If you need some defence, take a look at the SSR+ [The One] Escanor. The Lion Sin of Pride is a hulking brute of a man when the sun is up, becoming invincible for a minute when the clock hits noon. He comes packing skills such as Critical Hit, Stunning and more, and will perform admirably as a Tank.

Scramble like the lizard you've always wanted to be with the release of Electric Blue: Gecko Dash

Posted by Shaun Walton on February 16th, 2024

Playing games is fun, we all know this, which makes them the perfect medium to teach people about important issues. Who doesn’t learn better when they enjoy themselves? Our latest piece of infotainment comes from OtE Productions, and is called Electric Blue: Gecko Dash.

The game aims to raise awareness of the Electric Blue Gecko, also known as the Williams’ Dwarf Gecko, as it sits in the rather worrying threatened category due to poachers. You will take control of the titular lizard as you slip through the hands of the evil thieves to get back to your screwpine tree home.
