It’s Thursday again. I hope you’re all well rested and invigorated for the mad dash to the weekend. You’ve probably got Christmas shopping to do on Saturday. I’m sorry that you have friends and loved ones you have to buy things for, it must be very difficult for you.
If you’re thinking about buying them a game for their mobile, well then you’re a bit weird. But we’ve gone right ahead and picked the best one that’s come out this week to shower with attention. And hopefully you’re going to shower it with attention as well.
You can click the header below to download the game from the App Store. And if you’d like to share your thoughts, feel free to do so in the comments section all the way down there at the bottom of the content.
Put simply, if you loved the original Reigns you’re going to love this one even more. The writing is sharper, the ideas are more interesting, and there’s a fizz and a bubble to proceedings that makes you want to push deeper into the experience.
You’re still swiping cards left and right to make decisions, but this time around you’re a queen. Well, you’re THE queen. Not that one, the one in the game. You need to balance the esteem that four factions hold you in. Go to far either way and you’ll die. Die, and you’ll be reincarnated as the next queen and start a new era of rule.
Thursday is here. It’s snowing outside. I mean, it might not be snowing where you are, but I can hardly be expected to come round to all of your houses and check outside to see if it’s snowing can I? Come on, show some initiative and find out for yourself.
While you’re doing that I’m going to do the usual Thursday thing of writing about the one game that’s come out this week that you definitely should play. We’ve already discussed GRID Autosport, so it’s not going to be that. Because that would be too easy.
Instead I’m going to talk about a game that lets you poke around in the brains of a bunch of robots. You can click the name of that game below to download it from the App Store. And if you agree, or if you disagree, feel free to make your voice heard in the comments down there at the bottom of the article.
GNON has been out on PS4 for a few months now, but it’s finally made its way to mobile. And quite frankly it feels like it should have been there for a good long while. It’s a game of tactile manipulation that sees you poking around in the brains of robots to fix them.
In other words there are levers to pull, switches to press, sliders to slide, and all manner of other things to play around with. And the touchs…
Okay, it’s Thursday, so that means that it’s time for the Thursday find. Except I’ve gone and changed the name of it, because quite frankly The Thursday Find is one of the worst possible SEO titles that I’ve ever heard for anything. I’m so sorry I’ve let you all down like this.
Anyway, the format of the content is going to be basically the same. I’m going to pick a game, write some stuff about it, and give you a link to download it. It’s pretty smart, right? It’s just the name that has changed, so don’t you worry too much, regular reader.
So yeah, click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it. And if you’ve got your own experiences to share, feel free to stick them in the comments section all the way down at the bottom of the article. Er, I think that covers everything. Tally ho!
Shadow Fight 3 is the latest in the Shadow Fight series, as you could probably tell from the name. It’s a one on one fighter with big weapons, and a wonderful graphical style. Oh, and it’s also an awful lot of fun to play.
What is it?
Like I say, it’s a one on one brawler. You’re building up a character, learning the ropes, and following a story mode that sees you kicking the teeth out of a series of bad guys. Well, more often than not you’re actually cutting the teeth out of them. Because you’ve got a big sword.…
Well, Thursday has rolled around, and the big release this week is South Park: Phone Destroyer. It’s not your typical free to play tie-in game though, it’s actually a pretty impressive card scrapper with some nice ideas.
Which made me think that I should probably do something telling you everything you need to know about the game. After all, that’s definitely the sort of thing that someone might Google, getting me them sweet, sweet SEO hits and what not.
You can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it. And if you’ve got any questions you want answered, feel free to chuck them in the comments section at the bottom of the article and we’ll do our best to answer it with our brain powers.
The game takes a lot of ideas from Clash Royale, but then adds its own South Park twist. You’re dropping cards onto a playing field in order to beat back a bunch of enemies. There’s an energy system, and every card you play costs a set amount of energy.
Of course, the energy replenishes over time. And the cards you can play are on a rotation system. You can build your deck with new cards as you get deeper into the game, and there are a number of upgrade systems that let you strengthen the characters that you’ve collected.
Well, Monday has flobbled into view, weary from its exertions at the weekend, dreaming of a Tuesday that it knows will never come. Poor Monday, so despised by all and sundry, all it wants to do is live a little, but it never can.
What it can do is provide the perfect platform for the Monday Musing. After all, both of the words start with M. It’s like it was meant to be, pre-ordained in the glimmering ether. Or some such nonsense.
This week I’m going to have a muse about Titanfall: Assault. It’s a card-battler in the Clash Royale mould, and it’s set to hit the App Store later this week. Here’s everything you need to know about what the game has to offer.
What is it?
It’s a real time strategy game with a bit of MOBA thrown in there for good measure. You’re in charge of your troops, sending them in to battle. The scraps last four minutes, and a minute in you’ll be able to drop a massive Titan into the fray.
The aim is capturing bases. So you need to make sure you’re defending as well as attacking. Throw your troops too far ahead and you’ll find yourself screwed if your foe begins a concentrated attack.
How does it capture the ethos of the console game?
Well, with the Titans mainly. Obviously this isn’t an FPS with wall running. But it lifts a decent chunk of ideas from the main Titanfall series and wraps it all up in a more mobile-friendly package.
Well that was a bolt out of the blue wasn’t it? Monument Valley 2 didn’t just get announced yesterday, it got released as well. And it’s really rather special. Which obviously means it’s time for some content.
I thought it’d be a good idea to round up everything you need to know about the game in one handy place, so you’re fully prepared for what’s to come when you leap in. And you should leap in. Oh please leap in.
Don’t worry though, there aren’t any spoilers here, because that would be a horrible thing to do. You can click on the emboldened name of the game below to grab it from the App Store. And I assure you, you really should.
It’s the sequel to one of the finest mobile games the App Store has ever seen. It’s a slick platforming puzzler that you control with taps and swipes. You’re moving the levels around so your character, or in some cases characters, can make it to the exit.
Of course there’s much more to it than that, but I don’t want to go into too much detail about the story, because it’s definitely the sort of thing you’ll want to discover for yourself. Trust me on that.
How long is it?
It’s a little bit longer than the original Monument Valley, but not by much. You’ll probably have polished the game off in a couple of hours. But those are go…
Titanfall: Assault is the second bite at the Titanfall mobile cherry. The second I hear you scream, but what was the first? Well that was Titanfall: Frontline, which got soft launched and then quietly cancelled. So yeah, second.
This time around there’s a lot more action to sink your teeth into. Again, the game is only in soft launch at the moment, but I though it’d be sensible to give you a heads-up about what the game is, what you can expect from it, and how many titans there are in it (lots).
What is it?
Well it’s a bit like Clash Royale. But it’s also a bit like a tower defence game. But it’s also a bit like a tower offence game. It’s a base versus base scrap to the death with units and rockets and giant titans.
There are control points on the map too, and gun turrets, and it looks pretty shiny from the glimpse we’ve had of it so far. It’s good to see a game that’s taking the casual MOBA idea and actually running with it.
How many Titans?
Well the battles last four minutes, and at the moment the Titans turn up three minutes into the scrap. Before that you’re throwing troops into the level, capturing and defending points and trying to earn a higher score than your foe.
You’ve got rockets too, which do huge damage if they hit something. And then there are turrets that you can use to create choke points. Like in Aliens, but hopefully more successfully.
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,…
Easter is here, and that can only mean one thing. Pokemon GO has been updated! Actually it probably means a lot more than that, but that’s the thing I’m focusing on because I don’t know how much content I’d be able to get out of eggs and zombie Jesus.
So instead I’m going to write about the Pokemon GO eggstravaganza. So I guess I am writing about eggs. Look, it’s been a long day and I don’t know where my wallet is so let’s just try and get this over and done with then we can all go have a nice long weekend.
What is it?
The eggstravaganza is the latest update to Pokemon GO. It’s come out just in time for the Easter break, and it’s brought with it some new tweaks that are likely to make you smile while you stuff chocolate facsimiles of chicken periods into your face.
Well, there’s now a wider range of Pokemon in the 2km eggs. So that’s a pretty good reason to put some shoes on and go for a wander. Plus every egg that you hatch is going to give you more candy. ‘Tis the season, after all.
The Pokemon that pop out are going to level up faster as well, thanks to the fact they get double XP. Basically Pokemon GO really wants you to start wandering around, collecting more Pokemon, and having a lovely old time in the sunshine.
Lucky Eggs are also on sale in the store. They’re 50% off, which is a pretty good deal, and using one of those will get you quadruple XP. Which sounds ridic…
Gangstar: New Orleans is the latest in Gameloft’s murdery crime franchise. Think GTA on mobile and you’re about half way there. Well, actually you’re about all of the way there.
But what do you need to know before you jump into the game’s world of car-jackings, drug deals, and all manner of other underworld activities? Well, you need to know everything in the list just below.
You can click on the emboldened name of the game to head over to the App Store where you can download it for free. And join us next week where we’ll be going over the game with a fine-tooth comb in one of our massive guides.
