The original Mos Speedrun was one of those nearly perfect games that absolutely nailed exactly what it was going for: creating a super tight platformer that was designed for speedruns. The sequel is coming soon, and this new trailer shows what to expect.

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.

If you like your adventure game books to be the digital equivalent of a doorstopper, then Champion of the Gods is for you. It weighs in at over 200,000 words, which is about two or three times as long as a standard beach read. From 148Apps’s 4 out of 5 star review:
While some adventure game books corral you into certain choices or end the story abruptly when you go in a direction it doesn’t like, Champion of the Gods carries on forever more. It lacks a mapping function but that’s mostly because you get the feeling any diagram demonstrating what unfolds would be intimidatingly huge. Mostly every decision involves making one choice from many, and the story arc can change quite dramatically from where you begin.
It’ll normally set you back $2.99, but this story-driven adventure game is currently a buck. From the app’s description:
In the near future Greg’s girlfriend Chloe mysteriously disappears in front of him. He starts a desperate search for her. What happened? Why does no-one else remember her?
In this indie, story driven adventure game you explore fully 3d environments using an intuitive point and click interface. Solve puzzles, explore, play minigames, interact with numerous characters and find out what really happened!
