‘Minecraft’ Movie to Be Directed by ‘Always Sunny’ Actor

Fans of the highly adults-only comedy show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia might be surprised to hear who’s been announced to direct the upcoming Minecraft movie. It’s Rob McElhenney, known better by fans of the show as Mac. From Touch Arcade:

He has plenty of production and writing experience from the long-running FX comedy, of course, but he has yet to direct a movie for himself. He’s working on a movie called Figment for Legendary Pictures, but it’s possible that’s on hiatus, or this takes precendence, or he’s working on this next. Regardless, this seems promising since It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is such a good show.

‘Viking Mushroom’ Gets a Beautiful Trailer

If you like gorgeous art and side-scrolling platformers, you’ll want to put Viking Mushroom on your radar. Unfortunately, the game isn’t launching until 2016, but watch the trailer and get hype. From Touch Arcade:

The game looks quite a bit like Rayman both in the very colorful environments and the apparent humor. In a recent interview for the Examiner, the development team explained that this game is about Vikings and their lives, with every rune and item in the game having a real-world counterpart. Apparently, mushrooms will have an important yet undisclosed role in the game (maybe your ultimate goal is to make the best mushroom soup ever?). The game will feature a unique control scheme, according to the developers, although they didn’t want to get into more detail about what makes it so unique. Also, MobGe is very focused on delivering a strong story to the players and aims to employ many new techniques to do so.

‘Mountain Goat Mountain’ Review: Charm Central

Not only is Mountain Goat Mountain one of the most adorable titles of any game on the App Store, but it’s also a lot of fun. From Gamezebo’s 4.5 out of 5 star review:

Mountain Goat Mountain is challenging and charming, with gorgeous environments and pleasurable gameplay. In sum, it’s a truly joyful experience. If you’re wondering why everyone is loving goats so much these days, this game will certainly show you why.

‘Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle’ Review: Grindy Fun

148Apps has reviewed the new outlandish orb-tapping game Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle and found it to be worthy of 4 out of 5 stars. From the review:

I’m not big on Dragon Ball Z or freemium dungeon-crawling puzzle games, but I have to admit Dragon Ball Z Dokken Battle has managed to keep my interest. It’s simple but still a little complex, and the flashy combat is just bonkers enough to make me not care about how little control I have over the action. I’d say give it a shot, no matter your preference.

‘Impulse GP’ Review: ‘Wipeout’ on a Bike

Impulse GP is a slick racer that’s like a combination of Wipeout and a motorbike racer, according to Pocket Gamer. From their 6 out of 10 review:

There are some great ideas here, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see other games adopting a similar control scheme in the coming months, butImpulse GP can never quite live up to the promise of its concepts.

Upcoming ‘Minecraft: Pocket Edition’ Beta Delayed

The plan had been for Mojang to release a beta for a new version of Minecraft: Pocket Edition on July 29. Unfortunately, sometimes plans change. From Touch Arcade:

In case you don’t remember, the upcoming update is supposed to coincide with the release of Windows 10 and Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta and will add a billion new features. According to Tommasso, while they could start the beta on the 29th, that would mean no Enchanting, Music, or Controller support, which would be a disappointment to many. The new goal is August, hopefully.

‘This War of Mine’ Review: War is Hell, But This Game Isn’t

Don’t play This War of Mine if you want to get warm and fuzzy feelings inside. It’s a realistic war game from the perspective of innocent civilians. But it’s an incredible achievement as a game, says 148Apps in their 4.5 out of 5 star review.

If you’ve already played This War of Mine on PC there isn’t much reason for you to do so again on the iPad, but the portability is nice. If you haven’t played it at all, you should really consider doing so. I won’t promise that you’ll enjoy yourself, but it will definitely stick with you long after you turn it off.
