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.
Holy quack! Donald Duck and his affluent uncle, Scrooge McDuck, are getting their own card battling game called The Duckforce Rises. It’s already in soft-launch in New Zealand.
It’s a card-battling RPG featuring Donald Duck and Scrooge McDuck that’s currently in soft-launch in New Zealand and Australian App Store. The idea is to do turn-based battle against villains to protect Duckburg – a town where all the Disney ducks live (Huey, Dewey, and Louis, as well as Daisy, Donald, and Scrooge).
Sega aims to keep up the momentum of its insanely popular Sonic Dash endless running game by introducing Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom. AppSpy has a hands-on with the game. As for why Knuckles is shaped like a triangle? We surely don’t know.
Rayman is about to hit mobile platforms again. However, his latest romp, Rayman Adventures, appears to be a full-blown platformer instead of an auto-runner like Rayman Jungle Run (which is excellent) and Rayman Fiesta Run (also excellent). We’ll know more when the game comes out this autumn.
Telltale Games’ Minecraft: Story Mode is an adventure game set in the Minecraft universe. It should be out later this year on iOS and Android. Take a look at the first trailer — it’s got Billy West, Patton Oswalt, and a domesticated pig!
Free-to-play match-three game Pokemon Shuffle is coming to mobile soon. The game is already available for free via the Nintendo 3DS eShop, but having it on your phone will make it that much easier to match up Fennekins and Froakies.
