Out Now: World of Warriors from Mind Candy

Screenshot 2014-11-06 10.28.06

World of Warriors [App Store: Free] is a new battler/RPG type game from the makers of the Moshi Monsters game. A little grittier of a game for them. The game looks fantastic and has some lush graphics and animation. It is, of course, free to play.

To keep it fresh, there are daily and weekly contests for special items to use in the game. My early thoughts on the game are that it looks, sounds, and plays really well. But it’s a bit monotonous and needs something to change it up a bit. But I’m going to keep playing to see how things progress.

‘Subterfuge’ Gets a Trailer

There’s a genre of board game that’s based on your ability to lie as much as any other kind of strategizing. I’m talking about games like Werewolf, Saboteur, and The Resistance. Subterfuge looks like that kind of game. A new trailer starring Adam Sessler hints at the kind of manipulation that goes on behind the scenes as matches play out over the course of a week. (more…)

Tom Baker added to Doctor Who: Legacy

Doctor Who: Legacy isn’t a new game, not by a long shot. But at just about a year on the App Store now, Doctor Who: Legacy has seen regular updates. This latest update adds Tom Baker to complete the full compliment of all 12 Doctors to the game.

Doctor Who: Legacy has quickly become one of my go to games — even though I am just a cursory Doctor Who fan. It’s mix of RPG / Match-3 without any sort of energy system that actually lets a player play the game. Have I mentioned how I think energy systems are a weak fallback for game designers who don’t have any originality, but perhaps another time.

Pick up Doctor Who: Legacy (on the App Store) – it’s an actual GOOD free to play game.

Entries Open for the 11th International Mobile Gaming Awards

The 11th annual IMGA is now accepting entries. If you are a game developer, head on over to the entry form and get your game entered. Entries are accepted through December 31st and there is no entry fee.

The IMGAs are the most prestigious awards for mobile game developers. With hundreds of entries every year, the best of the best are awarded in multiple categories that change based on the market and the entries received. I can’t overstate how much I appreciate the IMGA for what it does, bringing attention and accolades to developers in what was once a fledgling industry but has grown over the lifetime of the IMGA to become a major sector of gaming.

Full disclosure: I have been a judge for the last three IMGA and look forward to being part of this one too.
