New information about the upcoming game Star Trek: Timeline reveals some key details about the title, including which characters are invited to the party (pretty much everyone).
The team behind the game emphasizes in every opportunity that it consists of great fans of the show, so they want to really bring the core principles and viewpoints of Star Trek into the game: optimism for the future, belief in progress and equality, and a love for exploration.
Touch Arcade’s extensive stream of the upcoming Pac-Man 256 is a bit long, but packed full of yellow Pac-Man goodness.
My first impression of this game was how closely the game adhere’s to the original Pac Man visually and mechanically. Now sure there are some big time upgrades and the screen constantly scrolls rather than a fixed screen. Those differences don’t really detract from the old school 8 bit style still strongly popping out of this game. My first few seconds in the app were interupted with the original chiptuney melody Pac Man is famous for and from that point it has all been just nostalgia and great gameplay.
The first trailer for The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land is out now. No Man’s Land is a strategy game that pits you against the shambling hordes of the undead (you were expecting to go up against puppies and kittens, maybe?).
The gameplay trailer has a very intense Daryl setting the very dramatic scene of a horrible world with no warm showers and no fast food joints; no wonder many just gave up and took the easy way out. The actual gameplay looks fun but predictable, with plenty of face-smashing and gut-shooting. Overall, it looks like a typical turn-based game, but I think its claim to glory will be how the zombie hordes can overwhelm your people, which will demand a different strategic tempo.
A sequel is on the way for Gameloft’s hit MMORPG. There’s not much info at this point beyond a teaser trailer and some story info, but it’s intriguing stuff nonetheless.
The destruction of the Primal Heart led to a cataclysmic event that destroyed the world, with the heroes dying one after the other. Evil had won and retreated temporarily. 600 years after these events, the world once again flourished and heroes began to be reborn into this new world – in their quest to save it from the coming evil and redeem themselves.
We finally get to see some gameplay footage from the upcoming Pac-Man 256 game from Crossy Road developer Hipster Whale. It looks just about as good as we had hoped – an infinite Pac-Man type board, blocky graphics, and well, it looks like fun.
We’ll hold judgement until the game is released — but fingers are crossed. This should be out soon. Bandai Namco have a way… Well let’s just say we are hoping that Hipster Whale get to do things their way with this one.
If you loved Monsters Ate My Condo as much as we did, you’re going to be jazzed to hear that Adult Swim has announced a sequel called Monsters Ate My Metropolis. Only instead of a match-three game, it’s a card battler. From Pocket Gamer:
The Monsters have progressed from eating condos to leveling entire cities, and to do so, you build a deck of powerful attacks, buffs, and other abilities. Each monster has unique perks as well, ranging from increased damage to earning more tokens.
Roguelike games are all about random elements, and what’s more random than the vacuum of space? All those cosmic rays and floaty things to deal with…
You’ll be engaging in space combat, clearing sectors, completing objectives, and discovering worlds. It all seems fascinating and I’m curious to go hands-on with it. Battlestation: Harbinger will release for $3.99 without IAP on August 13th.
Thanks to its soft launch in New Zealand, Gamzebo has gotten their hands on Star Wars Uprising, the upcoming Star Wars RPG from Kabam. So far, they like it. From the preview:
As we’d guessed previously, Star Wars Uprising is a Diablo-lite in a familiar universe. Players will control their hero through taps and swipes as they clear dungeon after dungeon planet after planet ofmonsters and villains droids and stormtroopers. The combat is a very by-the-numbers affair, but it still manages to be a good time. You’ll have four different moves at your disposal at any time, and perfecting the experience means knowing which skill to use when. For example: when a stormtrooper gets ready to discharge a wide arc of laser fire, I’ll double-tap to dodge/roll to the side, get close enough to knock them back and dizzy them, and then pull back on my hero to unleash a shotgun-style blast of hot laser death.
We’ve been waiting on the amazing looking Armello for three years. I first went hands on with it in 2013. But looks like the tablet version is still a ways off. Developer League of Geeks has announced that it won’t be out on tablets until March 2016 — nearly a year away still.
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.
Five Nights at Freddy’s creator Scott Cawthon has distributed the demo for the upcoming Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 to a couple of lucky YouTubers, who posted their initial reactions to the game on YouTube.
Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 is the scariest yet, both in quantity and variety of jump scares. There’s new gameplay elements with it taking place inside of your house, and it’s said to be more difficult than previous games with these guys taking quite a while to even get through the first night. Listening to the sound of the game is more important than ever, which again, really just sets you up for prime positioning for an animatronic to jump out at you.

Square-Enix recently soft-launched Farms & Castles, a puzzle game that evidently borrows some mechanics from Spry Fox’s Triple Down. Gamezebo has just one question: Why now?
Farms & Castles isn’t a bad Triple Town copycat by any stretch, but there’s no denying what this is. If you want to give Square Enix your mobile attention, we’d have a hard time recommending this over recent gems like Hitman Sniper, Heavenstrike Rivals andChaos Rings III.
