Had enough of tussling in the squared circle? Take it to the golf course. Battle Golf is a competitive golfing game from the creators of Wrassling, and it looks appropriately hilarious.It’ll be out for mobile on July 30.
The HD conversion of this classic may not hold up all that well. Sounds like this is a release only if taking a trip down memory lane is the goal.
As a historical piece, Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th Anniversary Edition has some benefits but it’s a harsh reminder that sometimes you’re better off sticking with the memories than going back to them.

We know that piracy is bad in the App Store. But every time a developer releases stats it feels like another shocking statistic. Impulse GP dev EcoTorque has release stats from their first week for sale. The stats show a 97% piracy rate for the first week with July 22nd, their worst at 99.5% piracy.
Take a look at their post for more depressing details.
If you’ve run out of things to do in your Vault, don’t worry: An update for Fallout Shelter is coming on August 13. The game will hit Android on the same day.
We really liked what Fallout Shelter had to offer, but quickly discovered (like everybody else) that there was only so much to do. Hopefully today’s announcement marks only the first of many more updates to come.
Kingdom Clicker, the latest in the auto RPG / clicker-typer genre was released last week. This one comes with a twist — PvP battles.
In Kingdom Clicker the usual clicking is done to gather coins, which are used to buy buildings and power-ups that auto-generate coins. It’s a well worn mechanic and implemented very well here. The graphics are good, the game plays well. But the interesting new thing here is that once a certain size kingdom is built, players can battle other players to attempt to steal part of their bank.
I’ve been playing this for a few days and find myself drawn back to it a few times per day. My only concern with this game is that same for many, I wish the battle were more intuitive — they are basically just a dice roll. That said, it’s a fun game, well done, and worth a try.
FarmersOnly.com has nothing on this game. With this update you can farm with a friend on local multiplayer. If farming simulators are your thing, and I can see a certain draw, give this a shot when it comes out on August 6th.
148Apps takes a look at the recently released $2.99 racer Impulse GP and generally likes it. Praise for the controls, both in their accuracy and in the variety of options. The main downside is the silly AI, which seems over simplistic.
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.
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.
Do you like engaging in “redneck activities” like hunting and customizing redneck characters? If so, you’ll be pleased to hear that Duck Dynasty: Battle of the Beards is currently free, down from $0.99.
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.
Ever wanted to relive history? Why not try filling the very big shoes of wartime Prime Minister Winston Churchill? Make important decisions and try not to let too many people die. Think Like Churchill is a unique historical game / app, and you can grab it for $0.99 USD (down from $3.99 USD).
CAN YOU THINK LIKE CHURCHILL?
Each scenario will immerse you in a different pivotal moment in Churchill’s life. Some dilemmas are personal, some are controversial and some helped shape the fate of the world. You will decide:
• Should Britain fight or negotiate with Germany?
• Should you press ahead with the Dardanelles campaign at Gallipoli?
• Should you order the sinking of the French naval fleet?
• Should you risk death and recapture to escape from prison?
• Should you learn to fly?
