Apple Rejects Kill the Plumber on Copyright Grounds

Kill the Plumber, a clever-looking platform game that pits you, as a bad guy, against Mario (but he’s not Mario!) might not be getting an iOS release. The title was rejected by Apple because of its similarities to Nintendo’s property. Don’t pipe in the “Game Over” music just yet, though: Kill the Plumber is still coming to Android on July 23, and a Steam version of the game is in the works.

Beast Bound Review: Not Remarkable, but Not Beastly

Gamezebo recently reviewed Beast Bound, a turn-based RPG with bright colors and cool-looking monsters.

Beast Bound is a peculiar adventure with odd little monsters, loads of loot, satisfying battles, and a quirky narrative that will keep you foraging and fighting. It’s worth a try for any fans of classic RPGs.
