A release date for act 2 of Tim Schafer’s Broken Age adventure series has finally been set: April 28 in North America and April 29 in Europe. That’s the release date for the PC version of the game, but the mobile version shouldn’t be far behind.
If you’ve already bought Broken Age Act 1 on PC, Act 2 will be delivered as a free download. Likewise, once those dates hit, the game will no longer be split into “acts,” and will only be available as one full experience for $24.99.
Looking for a high-quality murder mystery game? Pocket Gamer recommends The Trace by Relentless Software, which earns an 8 out of 10 from reviewer Mark Brown.
Ultimately, The Trace is a pleasant if not pulse-pounding game about tapping on bodies and prodding at doorknobs. But there’s a clever investigatory twist that helps you feel something like a proper gumshoe.

Game Boy-styled Metroidvania adventure Tiny Dangerous Dungeons is due to hit the App Store on April 2. Fans of exploration will definitely want to get their hands on this one.
Like other Metroidvania games, in Tiny Dangerous Dungeons players will have to explore a big interconnected map, pick up items and weapons, defeat enemies and generally avoid getting killed. Thankfully the game will come with a check-point system so you won’t have to start everything from the beginning if you have been defeated.

Touch Arcade has gone hands-on with the next game from the makers of the terrific puzzle game 10000000. It’s a game of a similar stripe, but with many enhancements built into the gameplay. You can read all about it here.
Overall, the curve that the game throws new things at you has been flattened out significantly. It feels pretty cool, especially considering most iOS games these days lay all their cards on the table inside of your first 30 second session. You Must Build a Boatintentionally doesn’t do this, and while this preview is based off about the first 30-45 minutes of gameplay, there’s a ton of room on my ship for more craziness which has yet to come.
