Official Battleship game joins 1,000,001 knock-offs on the Play Store

Marmalade Game Studio already has a few digital adaptations of popular Hasbro board games under their belt, so it makes sense that they would be the company to publish an official Battleship game on the Play Store. The thing is, they are very late to the party. For years there have been nothing but clones available on Android, and some of them are actually pretty good. That means BATTLESHIP: Official Edition is going to have some stiff competition on its hands if it wants to succeed.

[Hands-on] Dungeon Hunter Champions, a mashup of ARPG and MOBA mechanics that result in nothing special

Gameloft's Dungeon Hunter is a very well known action RPG series for Android, and it looks like the studio is trying to evolve it into something new so that they can latch onto the latest trend of MOBA gameplay. That's why they created Dungeon Hunter Champions. Not only does it contain all of the ARPG gameplay you enjoyed in their earlier Dungeon Hunter titles, but there are also a few different PvP modes thrown into the mix including a 5v5 MOBA battlefield. I suppose the devs feel this will appeal to old and new fans alike, which really isn't a terrible strategy.

Hi-Rez Studios' mobile MOBA 'Paladins Strike' is available worldwide

Hi-Rez Studios is best known for their console and PC games. Most notably their 3rd-person MOBA Smite is one of their biggest successes, though many may have the opinion it has seen better days. It would appear that Hi-Rez is no longer satisfied with the console and PC market, as they are now branching out into mobile gaming with the release of Paladins Strike. If the name sounds familiar, that is because they already have a hero shooter available for consoles and PC called Paladins: Champions of the Realm. This release simply takes the characters and lore from that title to create an offshoot game that is better suited for play on mobile.

PlatinumGames and DeNA announce upcoming hack-and-slash 'World of Demons'

PlatinumGames is best known for their AAA console and PC titles, and they have apparently teamed up with DeNA to create an all-new hack-and-slash samurai game for mobile called World of Demons. An announcement trailer was released today, and some further details have been trickling out at a few of the major gaming websites. We can expect a release for Android sometime this summer, but it's sadly going to be free-to-play with in-app purchases. I guess Platinum couldn't pass up that sweet mobile cash, which is disheartening, to say the least.

Kalypso Media's skyscraper construction sim 'Project Highrise' is out on Android

People have been clamoring for ages for a proper SimTower successor. It would seem that skyscraper construction simulators are a very niche genre. Sure, we have a few mobile releases from Kairosoft and NimbleBit that may scratch that itch, but it's not like they can really compete on the same level. This is why so many fans of the genre were ecstatic when Kalypso Media's Project Highrise hit the scene. It was received very well when it originally released on PC back in 2016, and to my delight, it has been ported to Android and is officially available on the Google Play Store for $3.99.

Get ready for battle, 'MARVEL Strike Force' is officially available on the Play Store

Two weeks ago I wrote up a piece about a few games that were at that time listed on the Play Store for pre-registration. Well, it would appear that one of those listings has been officially released. That title is MARVEL Strike Force, and you can install it right now for free.
