The heyday of the Roman empire may have passed many, many moons ago, but that doesn't mean the quest for glory ever truly faded away. Soldiers have merely set their eyes towards conquest on a smaller scale. These determined Roman troopers may not be able to conquer the world, but one day they should be able to call this entire room their own. Erm, or something like that.
As a game centered around using a smartphone to get ahead on the streets of Chicago, it's only natural that Watch Dogs would get a companion app. But this isn't your typical bonus offering that just provides a mini-map, some background information, and a few doodads. Watch_Dogs Companion: ctOS is a multiplayer extension to the main game. While console or PC players are doing everything they can to make it from checkpoint to checkpoint, mobile gamers are giving their all to stop them.
These nuns have been attacking unholy forces on countless mobile devices, but just who are the women underneath those veils? Frima Studios' latest game dives into the history behind Yuki, a silent warrior driven by her need to protect all of the orphans stolen from her village. Using stealth, weapons, and "nun-jutsu," she's ready to wage war against the minions of evil.
Nun Attack Origins: Yuki's Silent Quest isn't a shooter like previous entries in the series, but there is still plenty of violence.
Godzilla is a giant, city-destroying monster that challenges us to ponder the fragility of life and the horrors of mass destruction. A 2014 adaptation is hitting theaters now, which means a movie tie-in game is destined to hit the Play Store. What do we have this time? A brawler? A first-person shooter? A side-scroller crammed with in-app purchases? No, silly. It's a match 3 puzzle game.
Developer Her Interactive and Nancy Drew have a long relationship that will, by the end of this month, span thirty PC games (and some Mac) over the course of roughly fifteen years. These point-and-click adventure titles are standard fare for fans of the genre, containing puzzles, mysteries, and an engaging plot. Now one has made its way to Android, Nancy Drew: Ghost of Thornton." This isn't the first game in the main series (yes, the company has more than one Nancy Drew series), nor the second, nor the third.
Kongregate has brought Tiny Dice Dungeon to Android, supplying us mobile gamers with another RPG filled with quests, battles, and loot. This particular game is set apart by its innovative turn-based combat system, which requires players to roll die to attack. The numbers rolled determine how much damage gets dealt. Rolling a double causes increased damage, while getting a one means the attack misses. The system works by combining strategy with good old-fashioned luck.
Essentially three years after the release of the first game, developer Distinctive Games is back with another title dedicated to kicking a rugby ball through a goal over, and over, and over again. The game has vastly improved graphics over the first entry, which came out just as mobile games were starting to close the gap with portable handhelds. Like some of the developer's other recent games, Rugby Kicks 2 was created using its Phoenix 3D engine.
Monument Valley has been available for iOS for little over a month, but it has already amassed around half a million downloads. What makes that figure even more impressive? This isn't a freemium game. No, people are buying and playing it at $3.99 a pop. Something about this strikingly beautiful puzzle adventure is attracting gamers in spades.
With the 2014 World Cup just around the corner, now's a good time to capitalize on that excitement by releasing a soccer game. Building a franchise from scratch could do the trick, but if you have a popular title out in the wild, why not kick out a sequel? Sriker Soccer 2 has just hit the Play Store with more of the friendly gameplay that helped push the original to success.
Live. Die. Repeat. That's the tagline for Warner Bros.'s upcoming film, Edge of Tomorrow, and the movie tie-in game takes this to heart. The game consists of one-part living, two-parts dying, and one-part repeating. Rinse, repeat, and you have yourself an experience that's roughly the same as any other game out there, just more overt about it.
The game is a first person shooter that manages to take the mindless shooter formula and dip its IQ by a few more points.
