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.
It’s almost like there’s a factory somewhere, with workers going nonstop, that pumps out Warhammer games 24 hours a day. The latest to hit the App Store is Warhammer: Arcane Magic, a strategy game that looks more like the tabletop version than most of them. From the app’s description:
Assume the roles of famous Warhammer wizards — including Teclis, Balthasar Gelt, and Wurrzag. Use spell cards to fight legendary monsters (such as Harpies, Cygors, and Exalted Bloodthirsters) or mystically have them fight by your side! Win battles to progress through a deep single-player campaign, acquire spells, and take on even more menacing foes. It will take more than courage and strength to defeat enemies conjured by a storm of magic. How far will your skills take you in the search for Arcane Magic?
Thanks to its soft launch in New Zealand, Gamzebo has gotten their hands on Star Wars Uprising, the upcoming Star Wars RPG from Kabam. So far, they like it. From the preview:
As we’d guessed previously, Star Wars Uprising is a Diablo-lite in a familiar universe. Players will control their hero through taps and swipes as they clear
dungeon after dungeonplanet after planet of monsters and villainsdroids and stormtroopers. The combat is a very by-the-numbers affair, but it still manages to be a good time. You’ll have four different moves at your disposal at any time, and perfecting the experience means knowing which skill to use when. For example: when a stormtrooper gets ready to discharge a wide arc of laser fire, I’ll double-tap to dodge/roll to the side, get close enough to knock them back and dizzy them, and then pull back on my hero to unleash a shotgun-style blast of hot laser death.
In this physics-based puzzler, your job is to build an island. From 148Apps’s 3/5 review:
The end result of In Churning Seas‘ less gamey design makes it feel like just that: less gamey. Given the haunting soundtrack, minimalistic aesthetic, and odd crypitc messaging between rounds, this seems very much intentional. The problem with this, though, is that it can feel a bit too random – and as a result, more frustrating.
From what I hear, Agar.io is a game all the kids are crazy about, even though (or because) you can name yourself any word you want, regardless of its R-rated-ness. From Touch Arcade’s 4.5 out of 5 star review:
Agar.io is described as an “MMO,” but it’s a lot more arcade-like in nature. You’ll start off as a single, solitary cell — yep, as in, a microscopic organism. Your objective is to simply absorb smaller cells, grow in size, and live as long as you possibly can. If you happen to get absorbed, it’s game over, and you’ll start over from the beginning. I’m leaving out the major gimmick of course, in that most of those other cells that you are eating and being eaten by are actually other players. Hence, the “massively multiplayer” part. As you’d expect, things can get extremely hectic and competitive being surrounded by a constant sea of players.

We’ve been waiting on the amazing looking Armello for three years. I first went hands on with it in 2013. But looks like the tablet version is still a ways off. Developer League of Geeks has announced that it won’t be out on tablets until March 2016 — nearly a year away still.

As of September 28, Sega will no longer support Rhythm Thief & the Paris Caper. So they’ve made it free and disabled in-app purchase. It used to be $9.99, so it’s quite a deal. Plus, you don’t need to use the IAP to enjoy or complete the game. So grab it and play it. It’s free.
iFun4All has released the horribly named great game ‘Red Game Without a Great Name’ on the App Store today.
The mechanical bird is flying through an unfriendly, Steampunk world. Help it avoid obstacles and deadly traps using its teleportation ability while picking up power-ups. Grab as many gears as you can to fully clear the level.
STORY AND UNIQUE ARSTYLE
The mechanical bird is a messenger carrying a secret message through a dangerous land in a Steampunk world that is very unfriendly to its inhabitants. Help him get through 60 levels full of deadly traps. Be wary of barbed wire, spikes, and moving objects, like windmill blades.
The Pip-Boy, a plastic accessory that turns your smartphone into a second screen for Fallout 4, has been very hard to come by. According to Bethesda’s VP of Marketing, Pete Hines, the company simply can’t make any more of the accessory.
“We made a s**tload of Pip-Boys, and we went back and made more, and went back and made more. I keep seeing stuff about, ‘Oh, you only did a few thousand.” No–we did a ton of these things. I think we did more of these things than we did for any collector’s edition we’ve ever done, ever.”
PC Magazine’s video review of Hitman: Sniper describes the game as a good side-distraction for Hitman fans.

A huge update is coming to Bitcoin Billionaire on August 6 that will triple the amount of content in the game. From Touch Arcade:
So, do you remember all that money you invested in time travel in Bitcoin Billionaire? Well it looks like that paid off in a big way, as you’re now the proud owner of a time machine that will whisk you away into the prehistoric era. This new scenario, called Bitstone to the Past, features 25 new investments, 4 new rooms with more than 20 new room items, and new achievements. There’s also a new rare item and re-investment system that applies to both this new scenario and the original one, meaning there are TONS of additional mining opportunities.
It’ll normally set you back $2.99, but this story-driven adventure game is currently a buck. From the app’s description:
In the near future Greg’s girlfriend Chloe mysteriously disappears in front of him. He starts a desperate search for her. What happened? Why does no-one else remember her?
In this indie, story driven adventure game you explore fully 3d environments using an intuitive point and click interface. Solve puzzles, explore, play minigames, interact with numerous characters and find out what really happened!
If you like your adventure game books to be the digital equivalent of a doorstopper, then Champion of the Gods is for you. It weighs in at over 200,000 words, which is about two or three times as long as a standard beach read. From 148Apps’s 4 out of 5 star review:
While some adventure game books corral you into certain choices or end the story abruptly when you go in a direction it doesn’t like, Champion of the Gods carries on forever more. It lacks a mapping function but that’s mostly because you get the feeling any diagram demonstrating what unfolds would be intimidatingly huge. Mostly every decision involves making one choice from many, and the story arc can change quite dramatically from where you begin.
It looks like Angry Birds 2 might already be out in a soft launch in Canada under the title Angry Birds Under Pigstruction. From Pocket Gamer:
It’s a poster advertising Angry Birds 2, and makes reference to a chance of “golden duck showers”.
The only references to golden ducks in previous Angry Birds games is a level named after them, and the new Golden Duck spell in Angry Birds Under Pigstruction, which showers the level in, you guessed it, golden ducks.
