Reflex Unit 2 will see players engaging in mech-based warfare, fending off waves and waves of autonomous robots that are threatening to destroy the planet. It's available now for iOS and Android.

Played from an isometric perspective, players will be able to take these powerful mechs out for a test drive in a variety of game modes, depending on their penchant for either solo or multiplayer fun.

PSA: Download Bastion for free, but wait to play it

Posted by Campbell Bird on November 6th, 2019

There hasn’t been much news from Supergiant Games on mobile lately regarding new games, but there’s something going on with their first game. Bastion released on the App Store in 2012, and back then it was published by Warner Bros. This Warner published version of the game has been delisted, but Supergiant has gone ahead and re-released the game, for free... kind of.

This new version of Bastion may be free to download, but has an in-app purchase for unlocking the full game. From now until 2020 though, this purchase is being offered at no cost, so make sure you grab the game before then.

A couple other things to note about this new version. First, it is optimized for newer screens, meaning it can fill your iPhone X or iPad Pro screen. On the not-so-great end of things, you aren’t able to take your save game from the original mobile release of Bastion over to this new one, and this new version has some performance issues. Playing it on my iPad Pro, there was noticeable stutter and dropped frames that hopefully get fixed with an update soon.

Luckily, Bastion is really, really good, especially when you can play it for free. So grab this new version, but then maybe wait for a patch or two before playing it again.

Dead Cells on mobile is great, so long as you play it just like you would on PC or consoles.
