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.

Posted by Shaun Walton on September 18th, 2023

Dust off your phones that you are probably reading this on, and get ready for some absurdist fun as Jackbox Party Pack 10 releases this October. Gather some funds and take part in five new games, including a return of one fan favourite, just in time to put on a hilarious Halloween party.

Tee K.O 2 will take players back to the fan-favourite Tee Shirt Island to draw the ultimate shirt for everyone to vote on. Even if you can’t draw, Jackbox games always reward ingenuity and humour. You will have new drawing tools, and the ability to use different fonts, or you can even choose different garments like a hoodie.

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.

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.

This new class will land on September 26th.
