Here’s everything you need to know about Angry Birds Islands

There’s a new Angry Birds game out. Well, it’s not out OUT, but it has been soft launched in a few places. And our lovely video chap James has played it. And then made a video of himself playing it. Because that’s what people use the internet for nowadays. You can watch the video below.

Anyway, I thought it’d be a good idea to round up everything we know about Angry Birds Islands in one handy to digest piece of content. In fact, this easy to digest piece of content. The one you’re reading right now.

Without further ado then, here’s all of the important stuff you need to know about Angry Birds: Islands. If you know some secret information that you want to share with the rest of the world, even if it isn’t about the game, feel free to add it in the comments at the bottom of the article.

What is it?

It’s a casual resource management, item crafting game. Think Clash of Clans, but with Birds and Pigs instead of Barbarians and all of the other things that are in Clash of Clans.

There are a bunch of islands to explore and hack to bits with your pig workforce. And you use the resources they gather to build up your town. The better the town you’ve got, the better you’ll feel about yourself. Maybe.

What sets it apart?

Well, there’s those birds and pigs. And there’s more of a focus on crafting things than you might expect to find in this sort of game. Plus it’s super polished,…

Discover new ways to vanquish your enemies in MU Origin’s latest update

Just when you thought that it’d be safe to return to the land of MU, developers Webzen are once again rewriting the rulebook as its latest update makes its way to the highly popular fantasy MMORPG.

Starting with a bang and shaking things up in a big way is the suite of new game systems which substantially influence how budding adventurers interact with the world of MU Origin. Leading the pack is what’s known as the Soul Stone system, which for the first time allows players to apply elemental changes to their character. Wanna stay chill or get gone with the wind? You decide!

But what good’s a buffed-up character if there are no modes to use them in? Fear not, as two new major events prepare to change the MU Origin landscape. Battle Core is an all new all-server event that lets players duke it out in a race to achieve 1,000 points the fastest. Free for any to enter daily between 12:30-13:30, 16:30-17:30, and 22:00-23:00, Battle Core victors will enjoy a wealth of EXP, fame points, and other achievements.

A second colossal shake-up comes in the form of a new PVP system, patriotically titled Battlefield of Heroes. In it, a whopping 200 players in two teams of 50 can enjoy an all-out melee whilst completing various challenges for extra rewards. These c…

The Thursday Find – Get Me Outta Here

Thursday. I have nothing to say about Thursday. Let us just get on with this and hope that Friday is a little bit more exciting than Thursday.

This week’s Thursday Find is an interesting arcade shooter that takes a while to build up a head of steam. But when it does it becomes a thrashing lunatic of rolling and blasting that you can tailor to your needs.

But what is it? Well you’re about to find out. Oh, and as per usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it from the App Store. And by it I mean…

Get Me Outta Here

You wake up in an alien spaceship. You’re being probed. Probably. It’s pretty rubbish either way. So you do the only sensible thing – go on a murderous rampage to earn your freedom.

It’s a pretty standard set up, but the game wibbling around under the set up is anything but standard. There’s a complexity to the controls here that means you’re actually going to need to practice to get to grips with things.

That makes for a slow and slightly stodgy start. You’re going to be struggling with the swipes and taps to begin with. But once things start to click you’ll become an alien slaughtering machine.

There are different modes to play through and different weapons to unlock. Huge bosses stomp across the screen, wobbling bits of themselves at you in ignoble ways. And then…

Guardians of the Galaxy

Telltale’s latest. This one follows everyone’s favourite space heroes on a new adventure. As we’ve come to expect from Telltale the first episode isn’t fantastic, but it sets things up nicely for what’s to come. One to jump in on early.

A game about building tanks for cats to drive. It’s not quite as good as that sounds unfortunately, but it is pretty entertaining. And you can give a cat a chainsaw to play with, which is hilarious and incredibly dangerous.
