‘Dexter: Hidden Darkness’ Review: Hidden Repetition

If you’ve played recent hidden object games, you’ll know what to expect from this game, which is based on a defunct TV show about a serial killer. From 148Apps’s 3.5 out of 5 star review:

Dexter: Hidden Darkness really won’t tax you, but it will give Hidden Object fans a sense of satisfaction throughout the day. You might begin to wonder just how long the reskinning of Criminal Case can continue to entertain though, and rightly so.

‘Prune’ Review: Meditative Perfection

Lots of games are good. Some games are great. Very few games are special. Prune is special. From Pocket Gamer’s 10 out of 10 review:

There are few video games that have moved me to tears. Shelter‘s brutally beautiful ending did it, Arkham City‘s closing phone call did it, and so did Silent Hill 4‘s final moments with Walter Sullivan.

And when I realised what the game is actually about, Prune did it too.

Vote for ‘Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II’ to Come to iOS

Aspyr Media wants to bring Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II to mobile. To gauge the interest of the gaming public, they’ve put up a page where you can enter your email address and your mobile platform of choice. From Touch Arcade:

After the surprising news that KOTOR 2got an update a decade since the last one, Aspyr Media continues to surprise by asking mobile gamers to show their interest in a possible iOS or Android port. If you don’t know KOTOR and KOTOR 2, these two games, especially the first one, are considered by many the top Star Wars games ever. There’s, of course, a debate over which one is the best, with most gamers preferring Bioware’s KOTOR because it simply was more fun than KOTOR 2since it was a more traditional story of good versus evil with clear heroes and villains. Obsidian’s KOTOR 2, on the other hand, had a more complex view of humanity and its graces and flaws. Unfortuntely, it felt like a rush job when it came out in 2005, with plenty of technical issues, content missing, and a very abrupt ending.

Hearthstone Getting Grand Tournament Expansion

Blizzard promised big Hearthstone news and here it is: The Grand Tournament expansion is coming next month.

The theme of the set follows all the different factions of Warcraft lore who were invited to a tournament which, of course, is a silly tournament and not anything near as serious as the Argent Tournament.

‘Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch’ Review: Rodeo’s Finest Yet

Yesterday we posted Gamezebo’s review of this game, which came from someone new to the series who had a good time but wasn’t blown away. Today we’re looking at the 148Apps review, whose writer was extremely impressed. From the 4.5 out of 5 star review:

I find it difficult to care about the need to grind when I’m having so much fun leveling-up my marines. And being able to equip and train my marines makes everything feel more personal, which makes me want to play more, which makes me happier when my marines level-up, etc. I know I say this with each subsequent release, but this is Rodeo Games’ finest work yet.

‘Vault!’ Review: A Clever Twist on the Platformer

Do you like platformers as much as you like pole vaulting? Of course you do. So download the new Nitrome game Vault! to combine your two passions together. From Pocket Gamer’s 7 out of 10 review:

In the hands of an inferior developer, Vault! could have been a bit of a mess, but Nitrome has built a quick-fire arcade action game around a single idea that just works.

It might get a little repetitive, and there might only be a handful of characters to unlock, but there’s a neatly sliced mobile game here all the same.

‘Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon’ Launches August 6

Tiger Style Games has announced a release date for its upcoming sequel Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon. It’s August 6, and to make the announcement even more exciting, they’ve released a brand new trailer. Watch it above. From Touch Arcade:

Man, I’ll tell you what, some things are just worth waiting for. Tiger Style originally teased the new Spider in the fall of 2013, and we got a hands-on demo of a seemingly pretty complete version several months later at GDC 2014. In fact, Tiger Style had hoped to have the game out before the end of 2014, but were committed to the “it’s done when it’s done” mentality. Obviously 2014 came and went, and most recently we went hands-on with Spider again this past March at GDC 2015, where it was looking better than ever. We even gave it a special nod as one of our picks for Best of GDC 2015.
