Out Now: Pocket God vs Desert Ashes

What happens when high technology invades a low-tech world? Violence, obviously. Pocket God vs Desert Ashes is the crossover game you probably never expected to happen.

It’s “Clash of the Titans!” Or, rather, “Clash of the Pygmies and Landians!” In cooperation with Bolt Creative, Nine Tales Digital brings you a new spin on their popular Desert Ashes turn-based strategy game, guest starring a powerful Pygmy army defending their territory. The Desert Ashes Landians have passed through a magical portal to the remote islands of Pocket God. The Landians’ victory over the indigenous Pygmies isn’t as assured as they think. Even with their futuristic weapons, the Landians face a resourceful foe armed with spears… who are in turn allies with head-hurling zombies and sharks shooting laser beams!

Play as single player with over 10 hours of game play, or as multiplayer with unlimited play! Level up your army and become Lord of the Pygmies!

Pac-Man 256 Review: The Best Way to Pac

Gamezebo gives Hipster Whale’s Pac-Man 256 a perfect score, calling it one of the best Pac-Man experiences currently available.

Hipster Whale and partners have managed to put the skill-based, training-rewarding gameplay of the classic arcade into a short-burst, endless mobile experience. It’s still the same Pac-Man that you can imagine being featured in tournaments — both universally accessible and painstakingly conquerable — but without the predictable grind of the historically static boards. The best parts of Pac-Man are still here, and all the new features are now some of the best parts of Pac-Man.

Lunar: Silver Star Story and Vay Pulled From App Store

Sad news for JRPG fans: Both Lunar: Silver Star Story and Vay are gone from the App Store, and there’s no indication they’re coming back.

As those were SoMoGa’s only two games on the App Store, there’s a chance they might not re-up their developer contract with Apple when it expires, which means even those who have bought the games won’t be able to download them anymore. It’s a real loss for the App Store and RPG fans in general, in my opinion.

Bethesda Uses Tinder For Fallout Shelter Advertising Campaign

Hiding from radiation and roving bandits underground is all well and good, but if nobody is working to eventually repopulate the earth, what’s the point?

By uniting Tinder and Twitter advertising, Bethesda’s Vault Boy “assaulted’ two of the most popular social media services, gaining plenty of exposure for Fallout Shelter. At the same time, this marketing move gained the company plenty of popularity simply because of how funny the idea sounds; we’ve been hearing of Tinder a lot recently, but you don’t expect to swipe left only to find the image of a smiling cartoon staring at you.

Crossy Road Updates With Six New Characters

Crossy Road just updated with six new characters — but which six new characters? Hipster Whale ain’t telling, so get hopping.

Skylanders Getting Free-to-Play Mobile Card Game

Skylanders is seemingly reaching for a piece of the Hearthstone pie with Skylanders Battlecast, an upcoming free-to-play card battling game.

Activision is approaching the card-battle genre with an interesting twist. It is selling physical cards with Skylanders heroes on them. You open your mobile Skylanders Battlecast app, and then you use your tablet or smartphone camera to view the physical card on a table. Then you see animations associated with the card’s character appear on the screen of the tablet or smartphone. In a two-player game, an animated character can attack another, and you see the animated battle take place on the mobile screen.

Weekly Hearthstone Update: Art and Artists, and Blizzard’s Bottom Line

Still no Grand Tournament expansion, but there’s plenty of Hearthstone news for Touch Arcade to recap, regardless.

Still waiting, Blizzard…We have officially entered the third week of August and still haven’t been invited to The Grand Tournament, Hearthstone’s [Free] upcoming expansion. There’s plenty of chatter that the expansion will be released on the 24th of this month, so that might actually be the date I get to open all my TGT packs.
