The best escape-the-room games don’t just test your creative problem-solving skills – they look great, too. Released in October this year by Antler (the developer of the succesful VR puzzle SVRVIVE: The Deus Helix), Krystopia offers everything you could want in the genre, including loads of strange, complex puzzles to solve and an intriguing backstory.

When Nova Dune’s spaceship picks up a mysterious distress signal, her curiosity gets the better of her. She tracks it to a barren planet, where the only sign of civilisation is a massive stone gateway embedded in the cliffs. Beyond this gate, Nova discovers a series of doorways, one after the other, all locked.

Old is the new ‘new’, if the popularity of retro games is anything to go by, and nostalgia junkies now have one more reason to get excited. OutOfTheBit studio has just launched a top-down racing game that pays homage to those arcade favourites of the 1980s and ‘90s. Super Arcade Racing stays true to the beloved games which inspired it, combining simple controls, hand-drawn pixel art and pancake-flat 2D tracks to race around. There’s even a cracking synth soundtrack.

The game’s single player is essentially its story mode. You control Mick, our reluctant hero dragged into the world of illegal street racing to find out what happened to his brother. As you topple racing rivals across the 60 levels, you’ll edge ever closer to revealing the underground organisation up to no good — and saving your sibling.

For most of us playing a mobile game is just a harmless way to kill some time, fight boredom or get a nice quick adrenaline fix. We don’t expect this to have any influence whatsoever on any other creature in the world.

Well this is not the case if you choose Sea Turtle Rescue. Recently released by indie outfit Simberon, Sea Turtle Rescue is intended to help real life sea turtles, with its Ottawa-based developer donating 10% of all profits from the game to the Canadian Sea Turtle Network – a charitable organization from Nova Scotia which helps conserve endangered sea turtles in Canadian waters and world-wide.

Sea Turtle Rescue is a tile-based puzzle game where you match numerical sequences to create paths for baby turtles to reach the sea. From there on, your efforts will be focused on avoiding different threats on the beach as you move your hatchling along the 12 different levels.

Enjoy old favourite Sierra 7 available now on mobile

Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: TACTLESS TACTICS :: Read Review »

Sierra 7 is a game with a pretty storied history. Not only was it was the winner of the Big Indie Pitch at a Pocket Gamer Connects Seattle 2019, but it also started life as an extremely popular Flash game that's been played over 40 million times. You can jump in now on iOS and Android.

Sierra 7 itself is a tactical on-rails shooter with a distinctive minimalist look that would make it easy to spot in a games line up. It promises to deliver both arcade and realistic action and I was keen to see how it combines those two things. The on-rails aspect of the game was chosen because it meant that it would allow mobile players to focus on aiming and shooting rather than having too many on-screen controls to contend with.

Hello Hero All Stars receives update with new heroes, gear, bosses and more

The first Hello Hero game hit global platforms in 2013 and proved a huge success, with developer Fincon adding two more entries to this popular series of casual RPG games since. Released in June this year, Hello Hero All Stars brings many of the same beloved heroes back into the interplanetary fold. It’s an idle game that allows you take a back seat whilst your hand-picked squad battles across lands of monsters and bosses. Hero collecting is the aim of the game, with countless characters to unlock and upgrade as you progress.

Players have been sending their heroes trekking across the arid land of Armon, but an update this October will introduce another planet for you to rocket off to. Cucubita features 50,000 kilometres of new world to cover, each stretch brimming with weird and wonderful baddies to beat. There are familiar bosses from Armon, but some new bosses too, and their attack tactics change at set kilometre benchmarks so your heroes will have to be quick to adjust.
