Piffle is a cute arcade puzzler from Hipster Whale, the creators of Crossy Road

There is no doubt that Hipster Whale is best known for its immensely popular endless arcade hopper Crossy Road, but did you know this is also the same company that developed Pac-Man 256 and Shooty Skies?

Netmarble's turn-based gacha RPG 'Phantomgate: The Last Valkyrie' is here

Netmarble doesn't have the greatest reputation.
