Crossy Road Gets “UK & Ireland” Update

Blimey! The UK & Ireland update for Crossy Road is ready to go. Now you can try your luck at randomly drawing one of several new characters from the Grey Lands of Drizzle, including a Royal guard, a chimneysweep, and some fish n chips (yes, you read that right). Of course, you can also buy the newcomers for $0.99 USD each.

There’s another notable character in the update: The Dress. You know. The Dress. The one that’s white and gold. Er, blue and black.

The update is already on the App Store, though it’s not yet on Google Play.


WWE 2K Coming to Mobile this Spring

The Wrestlemania afterglow hasn’t quite died down yet, so a lot of wrestling fans will be happy to learn 2K is bringing a new wrestling game, WWE 2K, to mobile this spring. The game is supposed to feel like a “natural compliment” to WWE 2K15 for consoles.

The simulation-based game will feature a playable roster of your favorite WWE Superstars, from modern day warriors like Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan to venerated legends like Hulk Hogan and Sting, as well as a Create-a-Superstar mode. Gamers will gain ground by mastering their virtual grappler’s comprehensive move sets in three different match types, each of which features full ring entrances for the competing Superstars. Their challenges will then keep coming in Career Mode or from their friends in the form of Live Multiplayer Matches.

Namco Bandai Pulls Katamari, Pac-Man, and Other Games from the App Store

Namco Bandai has performed a cull on some of its games on the App Store, eliminating certain titles and their sequels. The Katamari games are gone, as is Ridge Racer and Noby Noby Boy. No reason for the takedowns has been given.

Writing in the iTunes descriptions for certain games, Namco says “We regret to inform you that service for this application will be terminated as of 3/30/2015.”

Additionally, the firm points out that “items already purchased may be used until service termination,” and that “upon service termination, guarantees of operation no longer apply.”

Steamworld Heist Turn-Based Strategy Game Coming to Mobile

Steamworld Heist, a 2D strategy game from Image & Form, is set to arrive on a plethora of platforms. Add “mobile” to the list. The game is a successor to the excellent platformer / digging game Steamworld Dig, which likewise features run-down robots scrabbling to survive a hostile environment. Look for Steamworld Heist sometime this fall.

There’s plenty of reason to get excited about this – SteamWorld Dig was much-beloved, and this is looking like it’s delivering a neat take on tactical gameplay by being side-scrolling, and using some skill-based elements, like aiming specifically at targets.

Glass Lighthouse: A Wizard’s Tale Review – Puzzling in a Bad Way

If you’re in the mood for a kind of broken puzzle game, Glass Lighthouse: A Wizard’s Tale has you covered. It has some really nice low-polygon graphics, but the game mechanics could use some work. You can read 148Apps’s 2.5 out of 5 star review here.

That thing you need to do? It’s simple enough, in theory. You have to slot jigsaw pieces back inside the existing shape. This starts out fairly simple but soon gets trickier as your intentions change somewhat. There’s a more fundamental issue too. It’s often hard to see where you’ve already slotted things in. At regular points, Glass Lighthouse: A Wizard’s Tale illuminates the shape but then the lines vanish all too soon, and leave you to try to memorize where things were placed before.

Gamebook: Pocket RPG Review – Not Gamey Enough

Touch Arcade has reviewed Gamebook: Pocket RPG, an app that’s hardly a game, hardly an RPG, and hardly 8 minutes long. You can read the 2 out of 5 star review here, but it’s not very pretty. Don’t fall for the pretty screenshots; it’s probably not worth your time or money.

There are points where you have to make choices, but only one choice moves you forward, with the remainder simply insisting that you go back to make the correct one. The only variability comes in whether you visit certain rooms at certain points, earning a checkmark on your player card for particular events. The game also feels very rough around the edges and even outright unfinished at points. It’s highly likely that the developers speak English as a second language, with the results being the most entertaining element of the whole game. I’m not sure if that’s intentional or not, but let’s take the small victories where we can.

Lonnie Plays Cube Koala

The YouTuber Lonnie has posted a video of Cube Koala, a fun little puzzle game about tilting a world so a cube-shaped koala can make it safely to the exit. The game is tough and bizarre but weirdly adorable (it stars a koala after all). Watch the video to see if it’s your type of weirdness.

Pie in the Sky: A Pizza Odyssey Review – Tasty

Remember the classic game Paperboy? Well this is basically that, but you deliver pizzas instead. It’s an endless pizza delivery game with some upgrades thrown in to make it worth your time. 148Apps gave it a 4 out of 5 star review.

Pie In The Sky: A Pizza Odyssey doesn’t have specific objectives or missions to complete, which is a bit of a missed opportunity, but it’s fun to play anyhow. Simply working towards new upgrades works quite well in giving you reasonable impetus to progress, and it’s the kind of game that should draw you in fairly well.

Finger Derpy Coming Later This Month

Thoroughbred racehorses. Such beautiful animals. Until you remove their legs and replace them with fingers. Finger Derpy is a tapping game that challenges you to keep your steed on a straight path by tapping your device’s screen with the proper rhythm. Needless to say, it’s harder than it sounds. Look for the game later this month.

If you can tap your fingers with the proper timing your horse will run straight. Tap out of sequence and your horse will run around as if trying to perform an interpretive dance of derpyness. There’s a party mode for four players, or a single player infinite horse race mode where your horse is trying to “escape” the finish line.
