Early Details About The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land

Next Games is hard at work on The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land, a mobile game based on the popular franchise about surviving zombies (and surviving humans). The game is seemingly quite open-ended, and revolves around trying to stay alive in very unfriendly circumstances.

It’s a hostile world out there, and with the dead walking, the one thing that’s guaranteed is that you won’t be safe. Expect to meet the walkers en masse, and not always when you want to. Where do you find shelter for your group? Where do you find the food, equipment and weapons you need? What is the best strategy to overcome the walkers closing in? Who will survive?

Finger Derpy is a crazy horse-racing game from Mommy’s Best Games. Players control horses by tapping their fingers on the screen like hooves. The point is to stay ahead of the finish line, which is inexplicably chasing you. Oh, and the game arguably has the most amusingly terrifying App Store icon ever made.

Mortal Kombat X Review: Injustice Revisited

Touch Arcade recently published a review for the mobile version of Mortal Kombat X. Unsurprisingly, the game plays similarly to Injustice: Gods Among Us. The review notes that even though Mortal Kombat X for mobile looks great, there are some free-to-play / monetization trappings that drag the experience down.

I’m sure I’ll still be playing this for a long time to come, but I can’t help but feel the developer put too little focus on making it a better game than Injustice as opposed to making it a more profitable one.

CivCrafter Review: A King Amongst Clickers

CivCrafter is a unique clicker game. Using one finger, you can make an empire rise. It’s a pretty ambitious title for the simple genre, as Touch Arcade’s positive review of the game points out.

It’s a stupid and clever idea, but perhaps this is where we should end the ride for the genre. This game is impressive in scope, but, what else can you do with the clicker genre after this?

Digit Smash Review: Fun with Numbers

Gamezebo’s Jim Squires is spending quality time with Digit Smash, a number-based Memory game that, despite its simplicity, compels you to keep on playing. And playing.

The catch, though, is that you only have one second to make each match. The clock resets with every match you make, making the game a flurry of taps as you race to beat the clock. Hesitate for even a moment and the game comes to an end.

Hands-On Preview of Wrassling

What a maneuver! Wrassling, which is coming to iOS on April 16, is an incredibly silly physics-based wrestling game that has graphics straight out of an Atari 2600 cart. And as this hands-on preview of the game demonstrates, it’s hilarious.

Apple Watch Reviews: A Neat Novelty, but Not World-Changing

Coming Soon: A Five Nights at Freddy’s Movie

Turn the lights back on. Scott Cawthon’s enormously popular survival horror series, Five Nights at Freddy’s, is being considered for a film adaptation by Warner Bros. It’s being produced by Roy Lee of Vertigo Entertainment, and Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Productions.

So that’s… unexpected. Except it’s really not. Five Nights at Freddy’s has gone from a Steam Greenlight mad science experiment to a nationwide sensation with a million-billion clones. Of course a major movie studio would latch onto what could maybe possibly potentially be its next horror mega-hit. And hey, lots of people watch other people play the game on YouTube anyway. Maybe this will just be a Let’s Play with ungodly high production values.

DomiNations Review: War with a Civilized Twist

Gamezebo recently posted a review of DomiNations, a strategy / battle game with an infusion of Civilization. According to reviewer Jim Squires, the game is leagues beyond a typical Clash of Clans clone. It earned 4.5 out of 5 stars.

If you’ve been itching for something like Clash of Clans. but with a little more meat on its bones, this is it. If Big Huge Games can balance the multiplayer a little better, it wouldn’t be far-fetched to call DomiNations the new gold standard in mobile base building games.

Cube Koala Review: Cuddly, Deadly

Cube Koala is a difficult physics / puzzle game that puts in you charge of helping a koala tumble to safety. If you fail, you’ll have a dead koala on your conscience, which you surely don’t need. TouchArcade’s 4.5 out of 5-star review of the game praises its simple learning curve and lasting challenge level.

Even if you aren’t the type of gamer that enjoys taxing experiences, Cube Koala is so well designed that you can pick it up and play it with ease, learning its intricacies as you go along. Before you know it you’ll start to pick up a few new tricks here and there as you slowly make your way through all 75 stages.

Marvel Mighty Heroes Review: Not Very Heroic

DeNA’s top-down action game Marvel Mighty Heroes lacks any kind of heroic pull, according to Gamezebo’s 3-out-of-5 star review for the title.

Marvel Mighty Heroes is a decent top-down action game that is jammed with Marvel heroes, but its held back by its repetition, ease of play, and IAP structure. It’s good, but lacks a lasting incentive to keep me coming back for more.

Fantasy Life 2 Will be Mobile Exclusive

The follow-up to Level-5’s popular Nintendo 3DS RPG (interestingly titled as “Fantasy Life 2: Two Moons And The Village of God”) appears to be skipping the 3DS and will be heading straight to mobile. It should hit Japan sometime in the summer, and there’s no word yet of a Western release.

However, it seems that those 3DS fans won’t be missing out on too much as the sequel doesn’t differ much from the first game at all. It features 12 Lifes to play, as with the first game, and seems to feature a number of similar fields and shares many of the same graphics.
