Tiger Style Games has announced a release date for its upcoming sequel Spider: Rite of the Shrouded Moon. It’s August 6, and to make the announcement even more exciting, they’ve released a brand new trailer. Watch it above. From Touch Arcade:
Man, I’ll tell you what, some things are just worth waiting for. Tiger Style originally teased the new Spider in the fall of 2013, and we got a hands-on demo of a seemingly pretty complete version several months later at GDC 2014. In fact, Tiger Style had hoped to have the game out before the end of 2014, but were committed to the “it’s done when it’s done” mentality. Obviously 2014 came and went, and most recently we went hands-on with Spider again this past March at GDC 2015, where it was looking better than ever. We even gave it a special nod as one of our picks for Best of GDC 2015.

Do you like platformers as much as you like pole vaulting? Of course you do. So download the new Nitrome game Vault! to combine your two passions together. From Pocket Gamer’s 7 out of 10 review:
In the hands of an inferior developer, Vault! could have been a bit of a mess, but Nitrome has built a quick-fire arcade action game around a single idea that just works.
It might get a little repetitive, and there might only be a handful of characters to unlock, but there’s a neatly sliced mobile game here all the same.
