Is ‘Angry Birds 2′ Secretly Already Out in Canada Under a Different Name?

It looks like Angry Birds 2 might already be out in a soft launch in Canada under the title Angry Birds Under Pigstruction. From Pocket Gamer:

It’s a poster advertising Angry Birds 2, and makes reference to a chance of “golden duck showers”.

The only references to golden ducks in previous Angry Birds games is a level named after them, and the new Golden Duck spell in Angry Birds Under Pigstruction, which showers the level in, you guessed it, golden ducks.

Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers 20th Anniversary Edition Review

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.

Out Now: Kingdom Clicker – the latest auto RPG/clicker game

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.

Paper Train: Rush Review – “just another perfectly playable endless runner”

Pocket Gamer takes a look at Paper Train: Rush and is bored with the sameness giving it a 6/10.

But it never goes above or beyond the shape we’ve all become familiar with. It’s solid, it looks good, and everything it tries to do it does with aplomb. But it doesn’t really try to do all that much.

Impulse GP Review – “Speedy racing game looks and feels great”

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.

‘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.
