Capcom's free-to-play 'Puzzle Fighter' is available on the Play Store

Capcom's free-to-play 'Puzzle Fighter' is available on the Play Store

Capcom has seen fit to bring a new Puzzle Fighter game to Android, with all the good and bad that entails. You see, unlike the previous games in the series, this release is free-to-play, which means there are plenty of in-app purchases and gacha mechanics thrown into the mix that can greatly alter the core competitive gameplay. So sure, we now have a legit Puzzle Fighter game to play through on Android, but it doesn't quite offer the same experience we all once enjoyed, which is a shame.

Zynga launches 'Words With Friends 2' with new social features, a solo play mode, and 50,000 new words

Zynga launches 'Words With Friends 2' with new social features, a solo play mode, and 50,000 new words

Words With Friends 2 - Word Game was recently launched on the Play Store as the follow-up sequel to Zynga's popular Scrabble clone Words With Friends. It is something of an odd release as it is more an expansion of the original gameplay than a true sequel. This luckily means that you can carry over your account and any game you are currently playing in the original to this new release without a hitch. It also means you can expect all of the same gameplay, but with a few new modes and words to play around with.

Spacetime Studios has released a public beta for its newest game Pocket Legends Adventures

Spacetime Studios has released a public beta for its newest game Pocket Legends Adventures

Spacetime Studios, the creators of Pocket Legends, Dark Legends, Star Legends, and Arcane Legends, have released an all-new game in the Legends MMO series, but it may not be quite what you expect. You see, Spacetime Studios has stated that their newest release Pocket Legends Adventures isn't an MMO but is "an epic, action-packed RPG adventure." For the most part, I am seeing little difference from their other games, but maybe there are larger plans on the horizon for the official release?

[Hands-on] Taichi Panda 3: Dragon Hunter, a beautiful MMORPG that offers very little in the gameplay department

[Hands-on] Taichi Panda 3: Dragon Hunter, a beautiful MMORPG that offers very little in the gameplay department

Taichi Panda 3: Dragon Hunter recently opened the floodgates for its public beta release. This essentially means any and everyone can now download the title on the Play Store in order to see its MMORPG gameplay in action. While there is no doubt that this is a beautiful game, the lack of any useful markers on the world map forces you to use the all too convenient auto-play button to progress. Essentially this is yet another mobile MMO that plays itself.

Dragon Hills 2 by Rebel Twins tunnels its way onto the Play Store

Dragon Hills 2 by Rebel Twins tunnels its way onto the Play Store

Rebel Twins has released a sequel to its hit endless runner Dragon Hills. It is titled Dragon Hills 2, and it offers all of the same destructible endless runner fun found in the original, but this time it has a zombie twist. A fittingly overused theme for what is already an overused genre.

The worldwide release of 'Into the Dead 2' is today

The worldwide release of 'Into the Dead 2' is today

I have written at length about PIKPOK's zombie auto-runner sequel Into the Dead 2 with a pre-registration announcement and a hands-on with the beta release. Well, it would appear that today is officially the day, as it has just been released on the Play Store worldwide. While this is a free-to-play release, if you ignore the majority of its monetization, there is a good bit of fun to still be had with the title.

[Hands on] Puzzle Fighter, a free-to-play tile-matching multiplayer game that actually isn't half bad

[Hands on] Puzzle Fighter, a free-to-play tile-matching multiplayer game that actually isn't half bad

I have been waiting for years to see an official Puzzle Fighter game come to Android. When I first heard the game was finally in development, I have to say I had quite a few trepidations that Capcom would turn the game into yet another free-to-play shell of a once great tile-matching multiplayer game. While my concerns were valid seeing that it is indeed a free-to-play release chock full of in-app purchases, loot boxes, and multiple currencies, the puzzle-based multiplayer gameplay hasn't actually been altered all that much.

Bandai Namco's English version of 'DigimonLinks' is a complete mess

Bandai Namco's English version of 'DigimonLinks' is a complete mess

The English version of DigimonLinks was just pushed out to the Play Store without even a peep from the publisher Bandai Namco. All the same, you can expect plenty of the digital monster collecting gameplay everyone loves about the series with one huge caveat. This is without a doubt a free-to-play title filled with gacha mechanics and numerous in-app purchases.

The worldwide launch of 'Middle-earth: Shadow of War' is today

The worldwide launch of 'Middle-earth: Shadow of War' is today

Middle-earth: Shadow of War has been in beta for what seems like forever, but in reality, it has only been a few months. In that time I wrote about the ability to pre-register for the game as well as did a hands-on with the beta to find out how it played. Suffice to say, despite Middle-earth: Shadow of War existing as a promotional title to Warner Bros. upcoming AAA console and PC release, it's undoubtedly a free-to-play gacha RPG filled with all of the usual trappings.

[Hands-on] Assassin's Creed Rebellion, a fresh take on an aging franchise

[Hands-on] Assassin's Creed Rebellion, a fresh take on an aging franchise

At first glance Assassin's Creed Rebellion looks quite a lot like Fallout Shelter, which isn't a surprise considering they were both developed by Behaviour Interactive. But unlike Fallout Shelter, Assassin's Creed Rebellion's gameplay is centered around turn-based squad strategy mechanics more similar in style to the X-Com series.
