Flipping Legend is a flipping great mobile game.
Flipping Legend is out now and it’s a simple and hard puzzle game from Hiding Spot Games and Noodlecake Studios. In this game the player can go left or right diagonally in a three wide checkerboard. Avoid spikes and collect coins along the way. There are a couple special moves to get out of a jam, but in general it’s a difficult game to get very far unless looking way ahead to plan out the moves. My only gripe with this game is that it’s not played in portrait mode as a quick twitch game like this would be perfect for a quick game while waiting in line.

[Sponsor] Defeat the cardinal sins in Seven Islands, a challenging endless runner out now on iOS
We’d like to thank our sponsor for this week, Seven Islands from LionStar Studios. Seven Islands is a brand new endless runner that’s anything but generic. It tasks you with traversing, you guessed it, seven islands that are each themed on one of the seven cardinal sins.
There’s a unique challenge to overcome based on the sin each island is associated with, but don’t worry – you won’t be going in blind. You’re given a clue at the start of each level to help prepare you for the new challenges ahead.
And you’ll need all the help you can get, as the difficulty quickly ramps up. This isn’t your traditional casual endless runner. It’s level-based, and it’s far from easy.
It plays like a traditional endless runner though. You’ll swipe right and left to dodge obstacles, jump over stuff, and collect a bunch of helpful items like stones, coins, treasure, and diamonds.
Seven Islands, seven deadly sins (more…)

[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.

"One Touch Flying Mayhem!" - Spinnywings brings memories of the arcade to mobile
Single button control games aren’t usually my thing. They generally lack any sort of replayability. But in this case it’s an design decision that actually works out well as it keep the game arcade-like. In Spinnywings you touch the screen to turn right, avoid other planes and gather balloons for power-ups, loot, and fuel. Arcade fun through and through.
Spin your way across the sky and collect balloons. Unlock loot crates and collect 10 different aircraft along with a ton of different boosts, paint schemes and streamers.
See how long you can resist the massed forces of Evil Air Corporation’s zeppelins, fighters, bombers, choppers and air mines!
