Out of nowhere, Saber Interactive's off-roading simulation game MudRunner has popped up on the Play Store. If you're unfamiliar with the game, it's a sequel of sorts to Spintires, a quirky proof of concept where you drive Soviet-era trucks through heaps of realistic mud. MudRunner offers similar physics-based off-roading gameplay, but it's wrapped up in a much more polished package, and you can pre-register right now for the official Android release planned for July 15th.
Welcome to Wednesday, everyone. As usual, sales in the middle of the week are usually on the low side, but that doesn't mean I don't have a few standouts to share today, so let's start off with a doozy. You can pick up the murder-mystery game Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, a quality port that's available right now for $6 off. If you're not a fan of quirky Japanese titles, maybe the nostalgia-inspired RPGs Evoland and Evoland 2 are more your speed. And if you simply can't get enough RPGs in your life, then you'll also want to check out Doom & Destiny and Doom & Destiny Advanced.
Google's latest Stadia Connect presentation was today, and there were game announcements aplenty. Some big-ticket titles like Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Hitman, and Hitman 2 are coming this year (with Hitman 3 landing January 2021). Indie hit Hello Neighbor and its prequel Hello Neighbor: Hide & Seek are coming this year, too, and both will be included in Stadia Pro subscriptions.
Welcome to Monday, everyone. After a smaller sales roundup this past Friday, we are starting the new week with a massive sales list. This means you can pick up the skill-based auto-runner Thumper: Pocket Edition for more than half-off. If arcade games aren't your bag, then maybe the CRPG Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition is more your speed? If not, then perhaps the story-based mystery puzzler 7Days is what you're looking for? As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier. So without further ado, here are 42 temporarily free and 78 on-sale apps and games for the start of the week.
The Professor Layton series of puzzle games has been incredibly popular since its debut on the Nintendo DS, and the first two games have already been ported to Android. Now the third title in the original triology, Professor Layton and the Unwound Future, is coming to mobile later this month.
Ubisoft has just revealed the sixth installment of Far Cry, set on "a Caribbean island simmering with revolutionary tension." Google quickly jumped in to announce that the new part of the series will also come to Stadia when it launches on February 18, 2021, which will make it the first Far Cry game you can play on the streaming platform.
Welcome to Friday, everyone. After a monumental Friday last week, it would appear things have calmed down now that we've hit the middle of the summer. Luckily I still have a few standouts to share today, including the games Death Worm, Levelhead, and Aces of the Luftwaffe - Squadron: Extended Edition. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier. So without further ado, here are 17 temporarily free and 31 on-sale apps and games for the end of the week.
Stadia has been rightly concerned with securing big-name AAA experiences to pad out its catalog, but indie representation has been growing in recent months. Soon, Google's cloud gaming platform will add another indie heavyweight: critical darling (and one of my personal favorite games of 2018) Celeste.
Afro-Ninja Productions and Armor Games have teamed up once again to bring a sequel to their successful idle RPG Soda Dungeon to a host of platforms on July 9th. Better yet, the publisher and developer duo have released Soda Dungeon 2 in early access on the Google Play Store ahead of its official launch, leaving PC and iOS in the dust. Much like the original, this sequel is a free-to-play release, which means eager fans can check out the game right now without spending a dime.
This past January, N3TWORK Inc. released a new version of Tetris for mobile, and it was well-received, thanks to competent monetization, smooth controls, and a few welcome skins. Well, as of today, Tetris has received a monumental update. First and foremost, there's a new competitive tournament mode called Tetris Primetime, which works a lot like HQ Trivia, in that you can actually win money by playing in this nightly live tournament. But that's not all, because two more modes are included in today's update, Tetris Together (a family mode) and Tetris Royale (a battle royale mode similar to Tetris 99).
