Kero Blaster stars a frog businessman

So Kero Blaster is apparently pretty much finished, despite Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya (Cave Story) originally scrapping the entire project (known as Gero Blaster) and doing the whole game over. It stars a businessman frog and hi...

The next Age of Empires is for mobile

A free-to-play, touch-based Age of Empires is exactly what none of us wanted but Microsoft is the latest in a long line of companies that can't resist chasing after the lucrative mobile market. This KLab-developed strategy title will hit iOS, Android, and Windows Phone in the summer. It's called Age of Empires: World Domination. Commit that name to memory, and stay away.

RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile is exactly what we feared it would be

Have we all seen those images detailing what the original Super Mario Bros. would be like if it were made today? Those were humorous when they first made the rounds. This, however -- a real game called RollerCoaster Tycoon 4...

Turn-based Hitman GO comes to iOS next week

Monument Valley looks a bit like Fez x Echochrome photo
Monument Valley looks a bit like Fez x Echochrome
by Steven Hansen

That soothing music was nice before I go drive to the middle of nowhere to do my taxes. I don't have anything that will play Monument Valley (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch), which is out now, but if I did, I would. Thankfully an Android release is coming soon.

I love the minimalist, colorful, MC Escher inspired architecture. And the upright bird people that look like plague doctors. So cute. 

If you have an iWhatever, maybe drop four bucks on this neat little game.

There are eight days left to fund Dead Synchronicity

It was the end of March when I saw Dead Synchronicity on Kickstarter, a great-looking science-fiction adventure game with heavy horror and dystopic themes. I've played the demo which is built on the alpha version of the game...

Play The Wolf Among Us: A Crooked Mile next week

It strikes me as odd that Telltale wouldn't have the release dates for The Wolf Among Us: A Crooked Mile locked down in time for its launch trailer, but here we are, just a day later. Episode 3 of the Fables series will launc...

The Perils of Man brings an adventure across time to iOS photo
The Perils of Man brings an adventure across time to iOS
by Alessandro Fillari

The adventure genre has seen a bit of an upswing in recent times. With Telltale Games and Double Fine's recent efforts helping to revitalize the genre, a new generation of gamers are experiencing a type of game that was once relegated to a niche audience. The adventure genre has also proven to be a natural fit for the mobile space, which sees many ports and recreations of classic titles. But now, we've got brand new title to keep an eye on.

During this year's Game Developers Conference, I got the chance to check out an upcoming adventure title, The Perils of Man, from former LucasArts developer Bill Tiller, who worked on such classic titles as The Dig, Full Throttle, The Curse of Monkey Island, and A Vampyre Story. And this one seeks to recreate and renew the wonder from the genre's past.

Dead Synchronicity is great-looking sci-fi adventure game

I think it's fair to say Kickstarter has given point-'n'-click adventure games a boost, not that the genre really needed it. Dead Synchronicity is a new adventure game from Spanish developer Fictiorama Studios which tells th...
