Review: Tengami photo
Review: Tengami
by Patrick Hancock

Tengami has been out on iOS devices for quite some time but has now finally made its debut on Wii U. I think it's great that the Wii U has the perfect setup for iOS games to make a pretty seamless transition thanks to the GamePad. I already love the GamePad for the unique gameplay potential it brings, so this is an extra bonus!

Tengami is a particular game for a particular type of enjoyment. Sometimes you might just need to relax a bit after murdering hundreds or solving awful murder mysteries and just...slide some paper to one of the most relaxing soundtracks you'll come across!

Arkanoid vs. Space Invaders should have happened years ago

I was too young to get into Space Invaders, influential as it was, but Arkanoid is my jam. Taito is working on a mobile game for iOS and Android that combines the two properties, according to Game Watch, and I'm loving the so...

Target Acquired is the new game from famed Mega Man composer

Some games are worth playing just for the music. As much as I love the Mega Man series, I have to admit that they can be a chore to play with no music, especially if you keep dying. An endless array of problems can be a trea...

Bullet Hell Infinite looks like a neat indie iOS shooter

Nicolas Bevillard has spent quite a bit of time crafting his own take on the bullet hell genre, and the fruits of his labor is Bullet Hell Infinite -- which is out now on iOS, and in development for Android. It's basically a...

Review: Woah Dave! photo
Review: Woah Dave!
by Jonathan Holmes

[Note: Jonathan Holmes' name appears in the Special Thanks section of Woah Dave!'s credits. No one knows why. One guess is it's because Jonathan and Woah Dave! creator Jason Cirillo had a decent conversation at PAX East 2014, during which time Jonathan was wearing a Woah Dave! t-shirt. Maybe that's it.]

Woah Dave! is a game that you don't want to get excited for. Any hype at all, even the slightest praise, might ruin your chance of getting into it. Ironically, there are plenty of reasons why some people can't help but be excited for Dave. For one, it's the latest game from Choice Provisions (formerly known as Gaijin Games), who have quite a large and dedicated following chomping at the bit for a new game from the studio. Not only that, but Woah Dave! has both an exclamation point and the word "woah" in the title, as though the game itself is excited that it exists. 

If you go into the game expecting to say "woah!" right away, you may be disappointed. Like Super Crate Box, Geometry Wars, or Samurai Gunn, it's not a game that works to impress at first. That makes it all the more surprising when you discover how deep, intense, and unpredictable this game of controlled chaos can get.

Final Fantasy VII G-Bike out in Japan on October 30

The gussied up Android and iOS version of Final Fantasy VII's motorcycle minigame is coming out in Japan this week, according to Famitsu. This feels right. It's been too long since Square has milked Final Fantasy VII. Possib...

South Park Pinball is the crossover you never knew you wanted

With Marvel, Star Wars, and The Walking Dead under their belts, there's no license too big for Zen Studios to take on at this point. This time around, Zen has teamed up with Comedy Central and put together two new tables themed after none other than South Park. I wasn't sure what to expect, but should have known the tables would be phenomenal.

Project J looks like a trippy little game I could waste some time with

Sometimes I just want to zone out with some synth music, bright colors, and pure gameplay. Super Hexagon works well for that, but it is always nice to try something new. Project J has an interesting hook to it, where the lig...

Dragon Quest 2 now available on iOS, Android

Dragon Quest II is now available on your phone, (not you, Windows Phone users) something that would have surely been unthinkable when the classic role-playing game first debuted over two decades ago. I'm over here imagining playing it using a rotary dial now. Thanks, Obama. Dragon Quest II [iTunes, Google Play]

Disney removed Tiny Death Star without telling its developer

Disney has pulled two mobile Star Wars games -- Tiny Death Star and Star Wars Assault Team -- and in the case of the latter, developer Nimblebit wasn't even given a heads up. "We had no prior knowledge that the game would be ...

Terra Battle swipes to iOS and Android next week
by Kyle MacGregor

Terra Battle launches on iOS and Android devices on October 9, Mistwalker announced today.

The tactical role-playing game is the latest brainchild of Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi, who drew inspiration from shogi to devise a combat system based around flanking enemies.

Mistwalker plans to continue adding new content as the install base grows. The studio's outlines for various milestones include new music from famed composer Nobuo Uematsu, co-op and versus battle modes, and a console game set in the same universe.

Hey, you know what Crazy Taxi needed more of? Hulk Hogan

Calvino Noir is a European, smoky, noir-ish stealth game

I think I've probably made it clear that I like a good stealth game and thankfully I had the chance to try out the lovely-looking Calvino Noir at EGX. Set in post-war Austria (I forgot to ask which war... whoops), players con...
