Mortal Kombat X

Mortal Kombat X announced for mobile platforms


iPad, iPhone, and Android in April
Mar 02
Warner Bros. Interactive has announced that come April, Mortal Kombat X will make the jump to the mobile platform. It won't be a full brawler however, as it takes the form of a "card battling hybrid," which you can check out... read
Forgotten Memories

Forgotten Memories drags Silent Hill 2 alumni back to the world of survival horror


Troy was never my Guy
Feb 27
Psychoz Interactive's survival horror Forgotten Memories has been flying under the radar for some time now, but all that seems likely to change with the recent cast announcements of Guy Cihi and Dave Schaufele (Sile... read
Extrasolar

Extrasolar's mobile interface got a slick update


Controlling an exoplanet rover on the go
Feb 26
Extrasolar has always been a tough sell for hardcore gamers, in my eyes. Though it was one of my top games of last year, most readers tune out when they see a description like "free-to-play science simulator," and going any f... read
Valkyria Duel

Sega shuts down Valkyria Chronicles mobile game


Social card game Valkyria Duel hits the end of the line
Feb 26
Sega and NHN are terminating service for their card-based social game Valkyria Chronicles Duel. The lights began going out today, as the companies have already discontinued sales of the browser and mobile game's virtual curre... read
BlazBlue

There's a new BlazBlue rhythm game and it's out now


Brace yourselves, anti-mobile and free-to-play comments are coming
Feb 25
"This isn't the BlazBlue game you're looking for," he persuades you with a small wave of the hand. Okay, maybe it is. Maybe you're in the market for a "gluttonous" rhythm game where you "eat to the beat of BlazBlue." In that ... read
Cave

Cave has a new shoot-'em-up hitting mobile in April


Probably only in Japan, sadly
Feb 23
DoDonPachi studio Cave is back with a new mobile shooter, "Gothic Magic Maiden," which is set to arrive in Japan on April 16. Whether it will ever come west seems pretty doubtful, though. Cave shuttered its official Eng... read
Mizuguchi's 18

Rez, Lumines creator working on puzzle RPG '18'


Well, the art is great
Feb 20
On a few separate occasions this year, I've been reminded that Rez exists and felt a flood of guilt after recalling how long it's been since I last played this ridiculously cool sequence (too long). A new Rez, or Rez HD on c... read
Endless snowboarding

Stylish endless snowboarder Alto's Adventure now on iPhone and iPad


It's nice when mobile games respect your time
Feb 19
It's rare that I cover mobile games here but I couldn't let Alto's Adventure slide by me. This is pegged as an "endless snowboarding odyssey" with a one-button trick system and 180 goals to best. Other things worth noting be... read
Spectra

Race through ten Chipzel songs on a laser track in Spectra


Billed as 'F-Zero meets Audiosurf'
Feb 18
"F-Zero meets Audiosurf" brings some vivid imagery to mind, but after watching the above trailer, I'm not sure I agree with that tagline for the indie racer Spectra. Sure, it's set to some bumpin' Chipzel tracks, but it look... read
Artemis convention

Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator is getting its own convention


Artemis Armada One
Feb 16
I have always been interested in playing Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator, but have never had an opportunity. A team had it set up at Phoenix Comicon a couple years ago, but the room was booked for the whole weekend, so I w... read

Companion to 0h h1
Feb 13
Late last year I was turned on to 0h h1, a free digital version of the Japanese logic puzzle Takuzu. Developer Martin Kool of Q42 is at it again. 0h n0 is another adaptation, this time taking the puzzle Kuromasu and giving it... read
Coup

Popular bluffing card game Coup will be a videogame soon


First on iOS, later for Android and PC
Feb 09
When people talk about good games to ease newbies into board games, The Resistance is one that gets brought up often. Heck, we have even played a few games of it on our forums. It took the hidden team aspect of Werewolf, tra... read
Sunburn

Jump in to the sun for just $0.99


But only until Sunday
Feb 07
Sunburn is an award-winning game on iTunes about leading a group of stranded space explorers, dangerously close to the sun, doomed to die a boring death by asphyxiation. What would you do if you had no hope for survival and ... read
#Fortune

#Fortune is a game that predicts your future by reading your tweets


Taboo for a new generation
Feb 05
As a youth, I became temporarily obsessed with an early Rare title for the NES called Taboo. It was a simple fortune telling game that used virtual Tarot cards to predict your future, but it inspired a deep level of fascinat... read
SAMCRO takes a backseat
I was skeptical of Sons of Anarchy at first, but once I realized it was Hamlet on wheels I was in. Its seven season run wasn't perfect (particularly the Belfast plotline), but it kept me thoroughly entertained throu... read feature

Feeling the Ironrath
I would not last a day in Westeros. My best hope would be to spend some time in Oldtown to train as a maester, and even though it would help to protect me from personally going to war, I would probably be too close to the pol... read feature

Jump'N'Shoot Attack!

Jump'N'Shoot Attack! aims to be the next big anti-mobile game


Auto-run structure, NES in every other way
Jan 29
It wasn't that long ago that auto-run platformers were novel, even quaint. Bit.Trip RUNNER, Canabalt, Vib-Ribbon, and even Anthony Burch's Runner all managed to get out to the market before Endless Runner stigma became a par... read

Combo Queen brings jiggle physics to an SNES aesthetic


I'd tap that
Jan 29
It's not that animated breasts are all Combo Queen has going for it. They're just the first thing I noticed clicking around the trailer and ending up on a bouncy idle animation.  The pixel art here is rather lovely... read
Fahrenheit

Indigo Prophecy gets an HD trailer, downed Amazon page


Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered
Jan 28
Hey, Indigo Prophecy is looking pretty good. I wish this remaster would've picked a name and stuck to it, though. Calling it Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy is just kind of messy and goes against na... read

Omega: the First Movement

Give some robots a rhythm beatdown in Omega: the First Movement


Wield a mighty axe
Jan 20
It has been a while since I have played a mobile game that I have really gotten into. Could Omega: the First Movement be the one to end my dry spell? Maybe! Its protagonist looks like a neon cyberpunk version of the kid from... read

WWE Immortals

WWE Immortals looks like Mortal Kombat/Injustice meets wrestling


Great concept, less-than-great execution (because free-to-play mobile)
Jan 15
I'm not into wrestling but, conceptually, I'm feeling WWE Immortals. It's a fighting game from Mortal Kombat studio NetherRealm and Phosphor Games that imagines real-world wrestlers in a fantastical alternate universe. Thin... read

A game about Frozen's Anna giving birth


Let it go

Another treasure from the mobile games space courtesy of former Destructoid editor Nick Chester. This one's called Anna Giving Birth and while I ponder what kind of audience this iPhone/iPad game exists to serve, I'll let the... read
Mean Girls: The Game

I feel personally victimized by the fact that there is a Mean Girls mobile game


So Much Drama™
Jan 14
I took a look at the official Princess Bride mobile game the other day and it was garbage. Granted, I don't like that movie, but I know plenty of people who do. It was a terrible, uninspired amalgam of boring minigames that h... read
