Knights of Pen & Paper 2 Trailer

Touch Arcade has the latest trailer up for Knights of Pen & Paper 2

The 16-bit visuals are looking great, though without running away from the “nerds sitting at a table playing a tabletop game” frame that the original game used. Super-cool. You’ll be trying to save the world from the second-edition ruleset of the game that threatens to upend everything we love and hold dear. This will not stand. Because we’ll be sitting down.

Marvel Universe release from Telltale Games coming in 2017

Teased yesterday at a press screening of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel will be wiling with Telltale Games, the folks behind such greats as The Walking Dead, season 2 and Tales from the Borderlands will be releasing some sort of a game, we can only assume it’s an adventure game, with an unknown Marvel story in 2017.

Does Not Commute Gets New Trailer, Release Date

You know how it goes: Everybody on the road drives like an idiot except you. It’s a phenomenon that’s illustrated in Does Not Commute, a “modern driving game” that’s all about distracted driving. Look for it on the App Store this Thursday. In the meantime, here’s a sparkling new trailer.

Party Hard Gets a New Trailer

A few weeks ago we posted a trailer for Party Hard, a murder simulator about a dude who’s fed up with the volume of his neighbor’s music and decides to go on a kill-crazy rampage. A new trailer that burrows further into the premise has hit the webs. Enjoy it if you’re into that sort of thing.

Hands-On Preview of Knights of Pen & Paper 2

Knights of Pen & Paper 2 is a self-aware game that combines traditional role-playing (think Dungeons & Dragons) with computerized role-playing. The end result features a lot of fourth wall-breaking, cheerleader dwarves, and troglodyte bubble parties. Take a look at AppSpy’s hands-on of the game, and download the finished product on May 14.

King Soft-Launches Alpha Betty Saga

We can say this for King: The studio keeps itself busy. The makers of Candy Crush Saga recently soft-launched a word-building game called Alpha Betty on the Spanish Google Play store. You can also give it a try (worldwide) on Facebook.

After playing the first few levels of Alpha Betty Saga on Facebook, it’s not hard to see what King are going for here. Alpha Betty Saga is a merging of two worlds: the falling-block, power-up heavy world of Candy Crush Saga and the spelltastic world of games like Scrabble, Boggle and Bookworm Adventures. And from what little we’ve seen, it’s a combination that works really well.

Hands-On Preview of Smash Land

Smash Land is Supercell’s next game – theoretically. Even though the title is in soft-launch, Supercell ultimately pulled the plug on another title it soft-launched some time ago, Spooky Pop. Whether Smash Land materializes or not, this hands-on preview from AppSpy makes the physics / RPG game seem pretty fun.

Ys Chronicles 1 Coming to iOS and Android

Ys is a long-lived action RPG series, but Western audiences never embraced it as readily as Eastern audiences. We’re getting another chance to show Ys some love with Ys Chronicles 1, a mobile remake of the series’ first episode. If you’re not familiar with Ys, it’ll be a perfect place to start. No word yet on when the game will hit iOS and Android, but we do have a lovely-looking story trailer.

The Upcoming Lara Croft: Relic Run is Basically Temple Run with Tomb Raider

Temple Run borrows shamelessly from Indiana Jones, and the upcoming game Lara Croft: Relic Run borrows shamelessly from Temple Run. The game is out now in the Netherlands, but you can expect a U.S. release before too long.

The game seems to hit a lot of the notes of other endless runners, and the Temple Run [Free] comparisons are inevitable, because that game is the granddaddy of all vaguely Indiana-Jones-inspired endless runners at this point. This one might be fun in its own right, some endless runners are still fun despite being derivative. But we’ll be curious to see if this one turns out to be fun and original, somehow. Until then, it sounds like you should consult our one-size-fits-all review. At least this one has a T-Rex?

Mevius Final Fantasy Gets New Trailer, New Name

Square-Enix’s upcoming mobile RPG Mevius Final Fantasy has undergone a slight name change. Say hello to Mobius Final Fantasy. While you’re at it, say hello to this new trailer, which shows off some new jobs. It’s in Japanese, but since Mobius Final Fantasy is coming to the West at an undisclosed date, it’s still worth watching.

Guitar Hero Live Will Be Playable on Mobile Platforms

The Guitar Hero franchise is resurrecting alongside the Rock Band franchise, and everything old is new again. The upcoming Guitar Hero game, called Guitar Hero Live, is particularly intriguing because the audience reacts directly to your performance – and the “full game,” which comes with its own guitar controller (the one in your closet is still obsolete – sorry), is reportedly coming to mobile, too.

Guitar Hero Live is coming this fall, and we’ll surely be hearing more information about the game and its mobile iterations as the summer rocks on.

Angry Birds Fight Announced With This Odd Teaser Trailer

We know very little, well nothing really, about Angry Birds Fight. It’s the “very first cultural mash-up in the Angry Birds series” and it’s coming this quarter from Rovio. That’s about it. But it’s Angry Birds, so it’s worth looking out for.

Footage of Final Fantasy XIII Streamed to Mobile

Over in Japan, Square-Enix fans can get their hands on a super-ambitious project from the company: A full version of Final Fantasy XIII streamed directly to their iOS or Android device. As this hands-on footage from AppSpy demonstrates, the transition is not exactly beautiful – though having the game beamed from servers in Japan to a device in the UK undoubtedly plays a part in the game’s chronic slowdown.

No word on whether or not we’ll see a release for English-speaking territories.

Lonnie Plays Wrassling

If you’re into the whole Atari 2600 aesthetic and enjoy silly things, you’ll definitely want to keep Wrassling on your radar. The game doesn’t come out until next week (April 16 to be exact), but you can watch Lonnie play it right now.

Hands-On Preview of Wrassling

What a maneuver! Wrassling, which is coming to iOS on April 16, is an incredibly silly physics-based wrestling game that has graphics straight out of an Atari 2600 cart. And as this hands-on preview of the game demonstrates, it’s hilarious.

Gamevil’s Dungeon Link Pre-Launch Bonus Registration Now Open

Gamevil has taken their pre-registration page live for the release of Dungeon Link. Players that register at their page will get a redeem code for about $25 worth of in-app purchase items when the game launches on April 21st.

I’ve been playing the game for a week or so now and am liking it. Sort of a dungeon crawler where the hack and slash mechanic has been replaced with a flow-type connection puzzle.

Hands-On Impressions of Divide by Sheep

Intimidated by math? Maybe you’ll like Divide by Sheep. It’s a game that combines math problems with adorable little sheepies. It also has a twisted sense of humor, as AppSpy’s preview video demonstrates. Look for Divide by Sheep for iOS and Android later this year.

Supercell Soft-Launches Smash Land

Clash of Clans’ creator Supercell recently soft-launched its physics-based combat game, Smash Land. You can grab it on the Canadian App Store for free.

Gamezebo’s Jim Squires has some hands-on impressions:

We’ve only cleared the first 15 stages so far, and it’s already pretty clear that Supercell is prepared to keep things interesting. We’ve seen spiders that shoot in 8 directions, hives that spawn bees every time they’re hit, and shrubbery that just doesn’t know when to stay put. The levels are cunningly designed; not too difficult, but you still feel a sense of accomplishment with every board you clear.

Steamworld Heist Turn-Based Strategy Game Coming to Mobile

Steamworld Heist, a 2D strategy game from Image & Form, is set to arrive on a plethora of platforms. Add “mobile” to the list. The game is a successor to the excellent platformer / digging game Steamworld Dig, which likewise features run-down robots scrabbling to survive a hostile environment. Look for Steamworld Heist sometime this fall.

There’s plenty of reason to get excited about this – SteamWorld Dig was much-beloved, and this is looking like it’s delivering a neat take on tactical gameplay by being side-scrolling, and using some skill-based elements, like aiming specifically at targets.

Finger Derpy Coming Later This Month

Thoroughbred racehorses. Such beautiful animals. Until you remove their legs and replace them with fingers. Finger Derpy is a tapping game that challenges you to keep your steed on a straight path by tapping your device’s screen with the proper rhythm. Needless to say, it’s harder than it sounds. Look for the game later this month.

If you can tap your fingers with the proper timing your horse will run straight. Tap out of sequence and your horse will run around as if trying to perform an interpretive dance of derpyness. There’s a party mode for four players, or a single player infinite horse race mode where your horse is trying to “escape” the finish line.
