Cube Jump is Like Crossy Road in Space

If you’re into the whole Frogger/Crossy Road style of gameplay, then you’ll want to check out Cube Jump. It’s actually a lot more perilous than Crossy Road, because each time you jump you risk falling into the darkness of unknown and having to start again from scratch. Check it out in the video above.

Monsters Ate My Metropolis Announced

If you loved Monsters Ate My Condo as much as we did, you’re going to be jazzed to hear that Adult Swim has announced a sequel called Monsters Ate My Metropolis. Only instead of a match-three game, it’s a card battler. From Pocket Gamer:

The Monsters have progressed from eating condos to leveling entire cities, and to do so, you build a deck of powerful attacks, buffs, and other abilities. Each monster has unique perks as well, ranging from increased damage to earning more tokens.

Operation Dracula Review: “You’re going to die a lot”

Do you like your shooters to be of the “bullet hell” variety? Do you like swarms of lasers and bullets flocking across the screen as you try madly to dodge them while taking out the enemies? Operation Dracula may be your kind of game. From 148Apps’s 4 out of 5 star review:

Controls are simple though, with you dragging a ship around with your finger, and a double tap on the screen unleashing a special move. As is customary for the genre, the trick here is to learn the patterns of attack and to react accordingly. At times it can be a little frustrating (even on ‘easy’ mode), but OPERATION DRACULA’s over the top colorful nature will endear you towards what’s here.

Don’t expect to complete OPERATION DRACULA any time soon, if ever, but do expect to enjoy the ride.

Race the Sun Review: A Blast to Play

Polygonal racers are rarely this fun, says Gamezebo in their 4 out of 5 star review of Race the Sun, a game that was recently ported over from consoles and PC.

Race the Sun is a surprising little racing game that will sink its hook in you for quite some time. Don’t let the visual presentation deter you from this one, trust me (and the game’s popularity on other platforms): Race the Sun is a blast to play with.

What’s New in Angry Birds 2?

Are you playing Angry Birds 2? You probably are, or at least you probably tried it. If not, what are you waiting for? Lonnie decided to take a look at the game and offer some insightful (and, let’s be honest, some [charmingly] rambling) comments about it. Check it out above.

Play This! Cally’s Caves 3

The Cally’s Caves series has improved considerably with each instalment, and the third entry ranks as one of the best platformers on mobile. It looks good, it sounds great, and most importantly, the game’s controls are sharp and won’t trip you up. There are also tons of weapons to collect and master, which adds a sense of fun and customization that’s unmatched by other mobile platformers.

And, hey! It’s free! Though additional content is available for purchase if you like what’s on tap, and there’s no reason you shouldn’t.

New Trailer for Horizon Chase Features Near-Final Footage

Driving game Horizon Chase should be out later this month, and going by its trailer, it’s a real looker.

The visuals seem to be striking a balance between paying tribute to retro games and keeping something of a modern feel. Three dimensions will likely make this feel better than the two dimensional games.

The Angry Birds Games Have Always Been Random

Angry Birds 2 has come under fire for randomizing levels, perhaps to keep players from forming any strategies and thus forcing them to try again and again, spending more money in the process. But Jared Nelson from Touch Arcade argues the Angry Birds series has always had an element of randomness to it.

The original Angry Birds games were hilariously random. The physics engine was wonky as hell, and you could fire a bird along the exact same trajectory at the exact same speeds ten different times in a row and end up with ten different outcomes. It was not this exacting puzzle game people seem to remember it as, rather it was a totally random crapshoot.

Battle Golf Review: Bogey

According to Gamezebo’s review, Battle Golf is based on an epic idea, but the execution is just too simplistic.

Unless you’re some sort of automaton, you’re going to get tired of Battle Golf relatively quickly. There is nothing to unlock, nothing to play towards beyond beating your own score, and nothing extra to do beyond removing the ads from the game, which are sadly the only bit of visual variation that you’ll find in Battle Golf.

Race the Sun Review: Hard to Put Down

We all love a good endless runner now and again, and Race the Sun is exactly that — except with flying. It may start off kind of bare-bones and slow, but once you start unlocking stuff it picks up big time. From 148Apps’s 4-star review:

I honestly wasn’t having much fun with Race the Sun at first, but I’m glad I stuck with it. Things really open up once you start to unlock features that, honestly, should’ve probably been enabled from the start. Still, once you get going it’s difficult to stop.

Angry Birds 2 Review: Same Old Fun, But with Ads

Everyone’s had a chance to dig into the sequel to the most famous mobile game of all time by this point, and the reviews are overwhelmingly positive… you know, despite the usual nags of the free-to-play formula. From Gamezebo’s 3.5 star review:

Angry Birds 2 is a free download, so there’s nothing to be lost by giving it a try. But given how little its gameplay varies from classic Angry Birds, you might be better off paying a bit of money to grab the first game. It might seem a little bare-bones in this day and age, but “bare bones” means no lives or level timers. It’s just you, pigs, and physics. Just the way the Mighty Eagle always intended for things to be.
