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.

No word yet on when the game will hit iOS and Android, but we do have a lovely-looking story trailer.

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.

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.

New Bike Rider Trailer Stars Stop-Motion, Vine Stars

Amutus’ simplified BMX racer, Bike Rider, has seen massive success on mobile in Japan, as well as on the Nintendo 3DS. However, it hasn’t made much of an impact outside Japan. Amutus hopes to change that with its new trailer for the game, which stars Vine personalities Marcus and Cody Johns, and also features stop motion from Jethro Ames.

PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist Coming to Mobile This Summer

Love him or hate him, internet personality / YouTuber PewDiePie is certainly popular to warrant the creation of his own game. PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist is being worked on by Outerminds, and features pugs, sharks, barrels, and cameos from other popular Youtube reviewers. Look for it on mobile sometime in summer.

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.

FOX TV Affiliate Plays Finger Derpy

It’s always fun to watch dignified news anchors gradually become dishevelled, and if there’s one thing that’ll make you loosen your tie and start to sweat, it’s trying to steer a racehorse afflicted by QWOP-style physics.

Move over PewDiePie. It’s all over, Twitch. When you want to see the hottest video games played live, there’s only one place you need to go: Fox 41 News in Louisville, Kentucky.

Lonnie Plays Skatelander

Crossy Road meets skateboarding in this upcoming endless skater. It’s a boxy game of lanes and obstacles as you skate down the road, performing tricks along the way. There’s no denying the Crossy Road resemblance, but there’s a lot more going on here onscreen. Lonnie gives it a test run in the video above.

People are Doing Crazy Things in Hearthstone

French streamer and Hearthstone player Mamytwink claims to be breaking all kinds of Hearthstone records lately. First he apparently set the record for the longest single turn, and now he claims to have set the record for most cards drawn and most fatigue damage in a turn. From Touch Arcade:

For the uninitiated, here’s a simple breakdown: Hearthstone decks have 30 cards in them, and you take 1 point of damage each time you overdraw (this is called “fatigue”). The effect is a cumulative penalty for running out of cards. You take one point of damage the first time you overdraw, two points the second time, and so on.

The losing player in Henn’s experiment overdrew 14,745 times, and some quick, back-of-the-napkin summation reveals that he took a total of 108,714,885 points of fatigue damage. The turn took 24 hours to complete and finished up earlier this morning.

Kid Tripp is a fun li’l auto-runner that’s super challenging and kind of like Adventure Island (which only people over the age of 30 will probably remember). YouTuber Lonnie takes it through its paces and ends up liking it. Watch the video here.
