More details are forthcoming.

Mobile Gaming is Growing, Growing, Growing

The mobile games market is huge, and it’s still expanding rapidly, especially in Asian territories. Digi-Capital believes mobile gaming’s software revenues may reach $45 billion by 2018.

The firm predicts that mobile gaming revenue will hit $29 billion this year, increase to $45 billion by 2018, as gaming software reaches $88 billion this year, and $110 billion in 2018. Do the math: that means that mobile gaming is possibly going to encompass a bigger portion of the gaming revenue pie in the coming years.

Interesting via Siliconera:

Terra Battle Getting a Console Release

Mistwalker’s Hironobu Sakaguchi is a bit surprised at the success of his battle / puzzle game Terra Battle, which has seen over two million downloads since its release. A recent interview with Japan’s Famitsu magazine revealed he’s working on a console release of the game. Though he’s not sure about all its features yet, it probably won’t be a port of the mobile title.

“I feel that it could be interesting if we even go with something using virtual reality, or it could also be fun if it can somehow connect to the next-generation in some way.”

Capcom Changing Sexualized Female Character Designs in Ghostbusters Puzzle Fighter

Capcom recently received some flack for certain augmentations performed on female Ghostbusters in its puzzle / battle game, Ghostbusters Puzzle Fighter. Not to say the enhancements are exclusive to the Ghostbusters; even androgynous characters like Gozer received an upgrade. Capcom will be scaling things down a bit in response to the criticism.

A representative from Capcom told Pocket Gamer, “we will be revising the character art with more modest Ghostbusting appropriate attire.”

Broken Age Act Two Review: Two Halves Make a Whole

Tim Schafer’s Broken Age is done, and adventure fans are having a good time in its surreal world. Gamezebo reviewer Jillian Werner gives the game high praise, saying the game’s colorful and whimsical setting carries it through its few flaws.

[W]hile we sometimes felt Act 2 was just a lightly modified Act 1, if you enjoyed the first half, there’s only more to love here. Unlike Shay, we don’t want to get off this ship. But, like Vella, we wouldn’t mind a few more explosions.

Hands-On Preview of Ghostbusters Puzzle Fighters

AppSpy goes hands-on with Capcom’s latest mobile game, a match-three puzzler based on the Ghostbusters franchise. Though it’s too early to pass any major judgement, between dull gameplay and excessive IAP peddling, it’s looking like you shouldn’t call this one. Not even if there’s something strange in your neighborhood.

Mr Jump Gets 12 New Ultra-Tough Levels

If your reflexes are finely tuned enough to have gotten you through all of the levels in Mr Jump, you’re in luck: 12 new excruciating, exacting levels have been added to the game for free. From Gamezebo:

Players can experience the new set of levels by selecting “World B” from the start menu. The first new stage introduces a jetpack that controls just like Jetpack Joyride. What you’ll find in the other 11, I couldn’t begin to guess. After 50 attempts at World B Stage 1, I’m still at 39% completion.

Jurassic World Review: A Worthwhile Experience

Jurassic World mixes park building with dino-on-dino combat. If that’s the kind of thing you’re after you’ll definitely want to give it a look. From 148Apps’s 4 out of 5 star review:

Much has been streamlined this time around. You still have to hatch dinosaurs and clear away the overgrown portions of Isla Nublar, but you won’t also have to spend time and resources removing rocks and other debris after you’ve already cleared an area. You also don’t have to worry about juggling two separate types of food for your critters – this time there’s just one food source that covers both herbivores and carnivores (this is a lot more awesome than it sounds).

Arcane Tower Review: Pleasantly, Challengingly Roguish

The third part of a trilogy of roguelikes, Arcane Tower sports retro appeal and challenge, but not too much else. Depending on what you’re looking for in a roguelike, that might be enough. From Pocket Gamer’s 7 out of 10 review:

As a result, Arcane Tower is the best game in this punishing trilogy. It still lacks the fizz, pop, and impeccably condensed tactical scope of something like Hoplite or Lamp and Vamp, but it’s a tight and challenging addition to the roguelike genre nonetheless.

Out Now: Bears vs Art

Think The Scream is overrated? Want to whack Mona Lisa in her smug face? Then you have a lot in common with Rory, the bear starring in Halfbrick’s Bears vs Art. It’s probably the only puzzle game in existence that lets you destroy abstract art as a bear.
