Piloteer Is A Beautiful Physics-Based Jetpack Sim With Punishing Difficulty

Sure, jetpacks seem like a good idea at first, then you realize how hard it would be to not die while using one. Piloteer gives form to that fear with a mercilessly challenging physics simulator. You have a jetpack in this game, but it doesn't have any fancy gyroscopic stabilizers or wussy safety measures. You fly, you fail (fabulously), you fly again.

In the main career mode of Piloteer, you are given 60 different missions across three lovely art deco levels. The missions can be anything from land in this spot, to stay in the air for 5 seconds, to fly through these rings.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf Is The First WH40K Mobile Title That Actually Looks Like The Board Game

There have been Warhammer 40K games on Android before. They have not been particularly good, mostly because they simply slap the license on top of an existing mobile game style and hope the dedicated fans will spend some money. Not so with Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf. Not only does this game come from HeroCraft, a developer that can generally be relied upon to create decent games, it's a top-down, turn-based strategy title. What an idea!

Space Wolf is closer to a tactical strategy game than a straight-up board game adaptation, but that makes sense in the context of the medium.

This War Of Mine Game Preview: A Dreadful, Soul-Crushing Experience... In A Good Way

This War of Mine is not a fun game. But it isn't trying to be. While other "realistic" war games will hand you a rifle and tell you to take that beach, Private, in This War of Mine a few scraps of meat is a much more important tool for survival. You control three survivors living in a bombed-out house in the middle of an extremely non-specific war zone, trying to scrape together enough materials to craft their way through the war without starving or freezing.

Needless to say, this is not the kind of game that will appeal to those who like to spend their virtual time jumping through colorful Miyamoto landscapes, this is more like a playable version of your great grandpa's stories about what they had to do to get through the war in the old country.

New Game 'This War Of Mine' Is A Dark, Engaging Take On The Realities Of War, Now Available On Tablets And Android TV

Most games that deal with warfare are centered on soldiers and shooting at things, but This War of Mine (from 11bit Studios, maker of the Anomaly games) is a very different experience. This survival-strategy game follows the regular people caught up in the violence and hardship of war. Can you survive, and what sort of decisions will you have to make in the process?

Twitch Android App Updated With A Pop-Out Player That Can Show Video On Top Of Other Apps, But It's Pretty Janky Right Now

Video game live-streaming platform Twitch had a bit of an odd day yesterday. First the Android app was updated to version 4.2, with a new feature called the Pop-Out Player as the only addition. We tried out the app to see the feature... which didn't work. But that was apparently the least of Twitch's problems, as reviews on the Play Store and posts to Twitter immediately claimed that the update had made the app crash whenever it tried to launch video. (That's a big deal if you're a video streaming service.) In a matter of hours the Play Store app was rolled back to the previous version.
