Namco and Hipster Whale Team Up to Make Pac-Man 256

Steel yourself for a new mobile Pac-Man game this summer. Pac-Man 256, which is being put together by Bandai Namco and Crossy Road makers Hipster Whale, is based around the glitchy “kill screen” that would pop up in the classic Pac-Man arcade game if you managed to reach level 256. Can Pac-Man beat his most sinister enemy yet: Garbled junk text?

Heroes and Castles 2 Review: Good Game, Wrong Platform

Heroes and Castles 2 is a console-sized game squeezed down to a mobile platform. So it’s good, but it doesn’t quite fit, exactly. That’s according to Touch Arcade, whose 4 out of 5 star review says:

If you’re the kind of person who is willing to make sacrifices for console-style gaming on mobile, and doesn’t care if a game is a particularly good fit for mobile, then you’ll enjoy Heroes and Castles 2. If you need something that can be enjoyed in short bursts or can be dropped at a moment’s notice, if a lack of commitment is a feature not a bug for you, then I’d probably stay away from this. But please, whatever you do: play this on your iPad or whatever you’d consider your secondary device compared to the phone you use. You’ll enjoy the proceedings a lot more.

Earthcore: Shattered Elements – Tips and Strategies

The latest collectible card game to hit iOS is Earthcore: Shattered Elements. If you’re playing it and wondering what kind of deck you should build, 148Apps is here to help. From the guide:

  • Don’t forget your faction – There are three different factions in Earthcore that are functionally the same but give cards that belong to them a discount in terms of cost. In other words, Warrior cards carry less of a risk for Warrior faction members, etc. Try to keep this in mind when you start pulling out and adding cards to your deck.
  • Strike a balance – Always try to have a relatively even split of Water, Fire, and Earth cards. Since elements are so important when it comes to whether you win or lose a column, you really can’t afford to only carry one or two.
  • Love thy skills – Aside from the simple element system, skills are what can really make or break your strategy. Try to keep some useful skills handy, and fill your deck with complimentary abilities if you can.

Til Morning’s Light Review: Amazon Cometh

Amazon is now bringing its games to iOS, and its latest release, from developer Wayforward Games, is Til Morning’s Light, a mystery game that’s reportedly not bad but not great. From Pocket Gamer’s 7 out of 10 review:

There are times when this feels sort of like a My First Resident Evil game. The puzzles aren’t particularly macabre, but they involve finding the right keys for the right doors, sliding blocks around, and combining items together.

And it’s a perfectly pleasant experience. There’s quite a lot of wandering around, but everything you need to find is highlighted in the gloom of the mansion, and the puzzles are never at point-and-click levels of obscurity.
