Paladin's Story is an upcoming fantasy RPG with a light-hearted sense of humour that's heading for iOS and Android
Paladin's Story is an upcoming fantasy RPG with an off-kilter sense of humour that's heading for iOS and Android. It will officially launch for both on September 16th though the game is already available on Google Play in Early Access.
The game looks to blend an old school roleplaying experience with a more reflex and timing-based combat system. It also sets out to make light of many of the tropes that the genre has created over the years such as frequently seen character archetypes, commonly found items and of course, the classic plot of the chosen hero saving the world from an unknown threat.
Among Us! is one of the biggest suprise hits of the year, most notably because it's a two-year old free-to-play game. I get the appeal, though. In following and writing about games through this pandemic, I've noticed a distinct desire for game play to be more social. I even suggested a few games that accomplish this, though I couldn't have predicted the way droves of people have gravitated to Among Us!
For those unfamiliar, Among Us! is a social deduction multiplayer game where up to 10 players take on the role of either a crew member or an imposter. Crew members need to wander the ship and complete tasks to win the game, but imposters try to muck up those plans by sabotaging the ship and killing other crew members. Along the way, there will be times where the crew convenes and votes on who they think is an imposter, and the player with the most votes gets tossed out the air lock. Crew members win if they successfully complete all their tasks or get rid of all the imposters. Imposters win if they kill the entire crew or successfully sabotage the ship.
The gameplay is not too unlike a lot of popular board games like Secret Hitler or Codenames, but in its digital form it can be a bit daunting, particularly if you haven't played a game like it before. With that in mind, here are a few tips to help you dive into Among Us! and have fun with it.
A Pretty Odd Bunny is a stealth-platformer available now for Android where you play as a rabbit who likes eating pigs
A Pretty Odd Bunny is a stealth-platformer from two-man team AJ Ordaz and René Rivera. It follows the story of a red-eyed rabbit who is allergic to carrots and instead has a penchant for devouring pigs. It's available now for Android devices.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 dropped last week, meaning you can get remastered versions of two of the most iconic “sports” games ever made and experience some of the highest watermarks set in games of generations’ past.
There aren’t many new games like the Tony Hawk titles these days, and even attempts to re-capture the magic of earlier games in the series tend to go awry. That said, if you do want somewhat fresh and mobile takes on arcade, trick-based gameplay, here are our top picks.
Bouncing Box is a challenging platformer for Android where the protagonist is, as the name suggests, a box
In platformers, we often spend a large amount of time mindless destroying boxes by jumping onto or into them, whatever makes them splinter apart. Bouncing Box from developer The K Brothers aims to give those poor destructible cubes a chance to be the hero.
The game is available now for Android and will see players taking on the role of a bouncy wooden box as it embarks on a journey to collect all of the gems in the world. It promises to be a hardcore platforming experience that will challenge even veteran fans of the genre.
Five A Side Football 2021 is the latest football-focused game to emerge from Swipe Studios, who you may know from their previous games Woofball and Swipe Manager: Soccer. Their newest title is available now for both iOS and Android.

The release of Call of Duty: Warzone on PC and consoles renewed a lot of people’s interest in the battle royale genre.
