Don’t Sweat It if Your ‘Hearthstone’ Card Collection is Kind of Weak

A new Hearthstone expansion is gearing up to drop into our laps, which has made a few Internet pundits and apprehensive gamers bemoan that it’s not even worth trying to get into the game because it’ll take so much time/money to get the good cards. Touch Arcade says don’t sweat it, son. From the “pep talk”:

It’s like anything in life, if you don’t learn from your failures, you’re just doomed to continue to fail. Don’t get discouraged, keep plugging away, and try to absorb as muchHearthstone knowledge as possible through your defeats.

Warhammer: Arcane Magic Review – “will keep players engaged”

Do you dig Warhammer and/or strategy games but want to make sure the new one is worth $9.99? It looks like it is. From Pocket Gamer’s 8/10 review:

Warhammer: Arcane Magic is an eminently playable distillation of some of the aspects that make the tabletop game so impressive. But rather than investing hours in building a force and engaging in enormous terrain-traversing battles, here you’re tackling bite-sized magical skirmishes. There’s a resolute fizz to proceedings, and a tactical hum that will keep most players engaged for a good long while.

‘Kingdom Clicker’ Review: Provides a “short period of obsession”

If you’ve ever gotten far more sucked into a clicker RPG than you probably should have, you’ll want to take a peek at Kingdom Clicker, a game that holds a mysterious sway over a certain type of player. From 148Apps’s 3.5/5 review:

Eventually, the sheen will fade from Kingdom Clicker and you’ll want something with more depth, but as a part of this strangely addictive genre, it succeeds pretty well. It makes a pleasant change from the usual auto RPG style and there’s always something new to work towards.

‘Prune’ Review: “a gorgeous and unique experience”

Prune is the hotness right now, so if you haven’t played it you’re missing out. From Touch Arcade’s perfect 5/5 review:

Prune is such a gorgeous experience – the music goes a long way toward setting the atmosphere, and the sounds of when the flowers bloom on your tree provide the rising notes marking your success. The game is otherwise dark with clever usage of color, and sound & music cues that inform you of what’s going on. There’s no dialog in the game, but the story and point of the experience becomes steadily clear as you play it.

Is Bit City NimbleBit’s New Game?

NimbleBit might be at work on a new game, and it looks pretty bitty (as NimbleBit’s games tend to be):

Studio co-founder Dave Marsh has recently started posting images of something called ‘Bit City’ to his Twitter account. When asked about it by a follower, he describes the project as “maybe our 2nd to next project,” stating that they’re already working on something else, and what we’re seeing of Bit City amounts to little more than R&D right now.

Five Nights at Freddy’s Creator Calmly Addresses His Haters

The Five Nights at Freddy’s horror games have remained at the top of the mobile sales charts since the series’ conception a year ago. Some people are upset about the success enjoyed by the games’ creator, Scott Cawthon. Cawthon makes a rare address to his fans and haters alike in a Steam post.

I haven’t had a successful life; and now that God has blessed me with some success, I’m doing my best to be responsible with that success. I don’t party on weekends, I don’t get drunk or sip martinis. I spend my evenings playing Megaman 3, buster only, with my kids. And I try to good with what’s been given to me.

Spaceship Roguelike Battlestation: Harbinger Coming in August

Roguelike games are all about random elements, and what’s more random than the vacuum of space? All those cosmic rays and floaty things to deal with…

You’ll be engaging in space combat, clearing sectors, completing objectives, and discovering worlds. It all seems fascinating and I’m curious to go hands-on with it. Battlestation: Harbinger will release for $3.99 without IAP on August 13th.
