AppSpy has a video review of LEGO Batman: Beyond Gotham. The game allegedly contains the same levels of fun and humor you’d expect from a LEGO game, but the formula is wearing a bit thin.

Microsoft Wants More Minecraft in the Classroom

Microsoft believes there are lots of benefits to putting Minecraft in classrooms. No doubt schoolkids agree.

“Many of the most fun parts of Minecraft, including the collaborative nature of play, the need to experiment, the open world, the earning of achievements, and the growth of players’ in-game characters as well as their personal skill sets, are also key to excellent learning environments.”

Zynga Announces CSR2

The original CSR was an amazing technological feat bringing unbelievable graphics to a mobile platform — but that was three years ago. CSR2 will turn everything up to 11. In a first hand demo at E3 earlier this month I was blown away by the amazing quality. Zynga / Naturalmotion are shooting for beyond console quality — they might get there.

CSR2 will hit soft launch soon, and be launching globally later this year.

‘Siegefall’ Review: The Formula is Getting Tired

148Apps has reviewed Gameloft’s latest Clash of Clans-alike and has found it mostly enjoyable, but little lacking in fresh ideas. From the 3.5 out of 5 star review:

Building your kingdom is a fairly typical process though, and a lot of the time you’re going to be waiting for timers to complete and cursing the fact that so much depends on resources. Sure it’s satisfying to get stronger and stronger, but the format is feeling a little tired now.

‘Dragon Quest VI’ Review: Keep ’em Coming

Turns out Square Enix was serious about bringing the bulk of the Dragon Quest series to mobile. The latest is quite excellent, says Pocket Gamer, in their 8 out of 10 review:

Dragon Quest VI is full of flaws. But it’s also full of charm and appeal. Fans of old-school JRPG’s will already have snapped this up. For the rest of us who might have a passing interest, the charm and appeal are just enough to push you through the grueling grind.

‘Piloteer’ Review: Up Up and Away

Touch Arcade has reviewed the ragdoll physics game Piloteer and found it to be downright incredible. From their 5 out of 5 star review:

Piloteer [$2.99], the latest “P”-titled game from Fixpoint Productions, seeks to recapture that feeling and shrink it down into a mobile-friendly package. And, I’m happy to report, it pulls it off. It’s absurdly challenging, but incredibly fun once you get the hang of it. Except there’s a good chance you won’t ever fully “get the hang of it”, but don’t worry–that’s actually part of the fun.

‘Zen Pinball’ to Get an Ant Man Table

Ant Man is hitting theaters on July 17, and if early reviews are any indication, it’s supposed to be quite good. To commemorate the big day, Zen Pinball is getting a table dedicated to the diminutive hero. From Touch Arcade:

With a movie that’s based around a guy who can shrink to tiny sizes, Zen Studios has decided to take initiative to do some new things with their pinball engine. And yes, that includes shrunken pinballs, and some new mini-games that Zen promises aren’t like anything you’ve seen from them before. Sounds curious!

Sonic Runners Review: Flat Tire

According to Touch Arcade’s review, Sonic Runners is fun enough, but aggressive panhandling for in-app purchases really puts a damper on the experience.

The core of Sonic Runners is fine. This game could turn around in the future, because the actual gameplay is fun. They just need to pull back on how utterly aggressive and pushy the current monetization is.

Android Version of Fallout Shelter Coming Soon

If you’re an Android user who’s felt a bit left out of Bethesda’s Fallout Shelter party (the most radioactive party in town), cheer up. The game is coming to Android soon.

Plus, we’ve got word that an Android version is indeed in the works. A bunch of Android users were upset that the game didn’t launch on their platform, and they hopefully won’t have long to wait to play this for themselves.

Piloteer Video Review: Fun Failure

Ragdoll physics game Piloteer is all about learning to fly with a jetpack — an activity humankind was never meant to undertake. PC Magazine says it’s a fun undertaking, even if it’s painful-looking at times (humans should not bend that way).
