Beholder - a creepy game about choices and consequences
Beholder is a dark game. And it can be really dark. It’s a game about surveillance, choices, and consequences. In the (possibly not so) distant future surveillance is the norm and the player is a state-appointed monitor of that information. The player is the manager of an apartment building who has been assigned by the state to monitor the residents. The choices made in the game have direct impact on the tenants of the building, if the info is reported. And that’s the main choice in the game. We done, compelling, and voyeuristic and sadistic fun.

[Sponsor] Pull off rad tricks in Stickman Skate Battle out now on mobile
We’d like to thank our sponsor for this week, Stickman Skate Battle from Djinnworks GmbH.
Think you can pull off the most rad tricks out of all of your friends? Well, why not put that to the test in Stickman Skate Battle, a multiplayer skate-off experience out right now on iOS and Android.
Stickman Skate Battle challenges you to face off against a friend in a variety of different modes. There’s high score, in which you try and perform the best tricks in a minute. The winner is, as you expect, the player with the highest score at the end. Then there’s domination mode, which takes its cues from Splatoon. Here you trick off obstacles to cover them in your colours, and win if you have the most obstacles at the end. You can steal your opponent’s obstacle, which is pretty cool, by performing a better trick on it.
Aside from the main modes, there are also a bunch of daily, weekly, and league tournaments to take part in – if you dare. These offer the highest challenge, as you’re up against players globally. You might want to train up for that by completing the tutorial, practicing your tricks in training mode, and taking on the AI in offline play. If you fancy a bit of personal flair on your character, you can choose from a variety of different skaters and boards, as well as learn a few special tricks.
It’s clear that Stickman Skate Battle has been designed with love for the sport in mind. From the hand-crafted skate parks, to the variety of skaters, and the controller support at launch. Go on, you know you want to grab it from the App Store or Google Play right now.

I’ve been testing this game for what seems like weeks now. It’s amazing how fun simultaneous multiplayer is when there is a fully loaded room. Crash Club is a king of the hill type driving game. The more points the player gets the more gear their cars can be outfitted with. Great quick play multiplayer game, out now for iOS.

Massively multiplayer action with over 30 players live and real time in every game. Everything can be crashed, with weapons and abilities available right in the middle of the action.

A funny little tale of Earthxit in point and click adventure Her Majesty's Spiffing
Her Majesty’s Spiffing is a point and click adventure for fans of British comedy like Faulty Towers, Monty Python, and The Young Ones. It’s wacky in all the right ways while remaining a fun to play adventure game.
Assuming command of the near futuristic space ship HMSS Imperialise and her crew (distinguished veteran and gentleman Captain Frank Lee English and Aled, his mild-mannered South Walean colleague) YOU will venture into the cosmos, solving puzzles, engaging in witty banter, deal with crippling claustrophobia, gradually succumb to the sustained exposure of cosmic radiation and so on, all for Queen and Country.

C.A.T.S.: Crash Arena Turbo Stars -- equal parts Battlebots and cat fight
Not that kind of cat fight. In this cartoon game the player creates an almost Rube Goldberg-esque fighting robot and battles other players creations. In a sort of jousting fashion, each player pushes to destroy the other players robot. This is an interesting departure for Zeptolab, the makers of the Cut The Rope franchise. A foray into the multiplayer world with a quirky, but fun game.
