I'm surprised it took this long for a Sharknado game to happen

Until now, I had managed to avoid hearing about Sharknado 2: The Second One. That's debuting on Syfy on Wednesday, July 30 and just in time for the sequel, Majesco and Other Ocean will have a licensed game based on the disast...

@!#?@! Q*bert comes to Steam on July 8 in Q*bert Rebooted

It has been a long time since we have seen or heard anything new about the classic arcade game Q*bert. Despite being such an iconic character for its time, the weird orange macaroni-nosed jumper never really rode the wave to ...

Sid Meier's Civilization Revolution 2 announced as a mobile exclusive

Civilization Revolution was an interesting thing. As it was pared down to function well on consoles, handhelds, and eventually mobile devices, many diehards considered it dumbed down from the roots of the series. Still, it so...

Go on a sniping rampage in Hitman Sniper
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Square hasn’t been afraid to use the Hitman IP in fun and creative ways. Hitman GO was a critical success for doing something unique, and while Hitman Sniper isn’t on that same scale, it is still at least a ton of fun.

VVVVVV's user-created levels and editor are now free photo
VVVVVV's user-created levels and editor are now free
by Jordan Devore

Designer Terry Cavanagh has release a free version of VVVVVV that features player-created levels and the full level editor. It's called VVVVVVV: Make and Play Edition, and it can be downloaded as of today for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Version 2.2 of the full game is out now, fixing "a bunch of long standing bugs (for example, player level warp lines) and makes the 2.1 changes official (like player maps, colored text in player levels, editor direct mode, etc)." Steam Achievements have been implemented as well, so if you've put in the effort already, expect to unlock a bunch of those at once after updating.

That was far from the only VVVVVV news this week, as Cavanagh also released the game for iOS, Android, and Ouya, in addition to a related minigame called Super Gravitron for mobile. That's free, too! And there's a metal cover album for that special someone in your life.

Thomas Was Alone now available on iPad

Indie darling Thomas Was Alone is now available on the iPad. Originally released for PC/Mac, and later the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, the puzzle-platformer can now be yours on the go for $8.99. We found Thomas Was Alone a great experience, and it's done well enough to eclipse one million copies sold thus far.
