EA's recent mobile reincarnation of the classic Bullfrog Productions strategy game Dungeon Keeper, has undoubtedly received its fair share of criticism over the passing week. Our own Chris Carter called it "...a hol...
Bullfrog's 1997 strategy game Dungeon Keeper is a bona fide classic. It took the typical simulation conventions of the time and added some attitude, some horns, and a whole lot of charm to warp it into something truly special. Leave it to EA then to come in and take a demonic dump on the franchise by creating a freemium "re-imagining" with timers and microtransactions.
This is the first trailer for a new game from Milkbag Games, published by NimbleBit, Disco Zoo. TouchArcade reports that players will rescue animals, earn coins by putting them on exhibit and, "keep the party going for both ...

Gloops! Gloops! What a great name. They say it's a combination of global and loop. I like to keep it simple -- it rhymes with poop and sounds funny. Destiny-viii.jp is a new teaser page posted today. This co-production between mobile game publisher gloops and Square Enix is coming January 8, 2014. It's probably a mobile thing, right? Any ideas? Does the URL give you any clues?

Visual novels are cool games, but if there's a pet peeve I've developed with the genre lately, it's that most of them are PC-based. Visual Novels, dating sims, and the like are the perfect type of game to play on mobile and t...
