Do you have what it takes to be the Prince of the Forest? You’ll get to find out on September 3, when The Deer God comes to iOS.
So far The Deer God has gotten kind of a mixed response on Steam, with some people really clicking with the game and some just plain not liking it. For what it’s worth, I went hands-on with the mobile version of the game back at GDC in March, and I really, really enjoyed what I saw then.

Really, the headline of this piece gets right to the point. From Destructoid:
If you happen to be one of those arachnid-fearing folks, you’re in luck! Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon actually has an “arachnophobe mode” which can be unlocked in one of two ways: either by playing the game a lot and solving a bunch of mysteries, OR by simply entering a secret code.
In the settings menu, just go to Save Sessions, click on your current session, and change the name to “ROSMARUS”. Then reload the estate map and check out the spider selection screen and you should have unlocked the Odobenus rosmarus, or the common walrus.
What happens when high technology invades a low-tech world? Violence, obviously. Pocket God vs Desert Ashes is the crossover game you probably never expected to happen.
It’s “Clash of the Titans!” Or, rather, “Clash of the Pygmies and Landians!” In cooperation with Bolt Creative, Nine Tales Digital brings you a new spin on their popular Desert Ashes turn-based strategy game, guest starring a powerful Pygmy army defending their territory. The Desert Ashes Landians have passed through a magical portal to the remote islands of Pocket God. The Landians’ victory over the indigenous Pygmies isn’t as assured as they think. Even with their futuristic weapons, the Landians face a resourceful foe armed with spears… who are in turn allies with head-hurling zombies and sharks shooting laser beams!
Play as single player with over 10 hours of game play, or as multiplayer with unlimited play! Level up your army and become Lord of the Pygmies!
If you’re a fan of strategy games, you’re probably already familiar with Frozen Synapse, a great game that came out a couple of years ago. The developers have remade the game from the ground up, and it’s available now. From Touch Arcade:
According to the description of FSP’s PC version (which I expect will be more or less the same as the iOS version), the game now boasts a full 3D presentation that fleshes out the original’s minimalist art style into a game that has kill cams, cinematic replays and more. FSP‘s tactics also offer new options that didn’t exist in Frozen Synapse such as Slide, Sweep, Room Selection, and so on. Finally, FSP offers a “Replay Theater” that lets you rewatch your matches to figure out why that one guy got his face blown off. Now, the App Store description doesn’t mention a multiplayer mode (while the PC version has a pretty good multiplayer mode), so proceed with caution.
Dungeon of the Endless is out now on iPad, and 148Apps could hardly be happier. From the 4.5 star review:
I adore this game. Presentation-wise it hits all the right notes with a wonderfully moody – downright haunting at times – soundtrack, a slick pixel art style, and a surprising amount of humor with its characters. This was something that I used to envy PC folks for up until it finally came to the Mac (and now the iPad), purely based on the aesthetic.
