Raccoons are pretty much the best animal ever and it's a shame that so few games feature the little guys. If Tom Nook and Sly Cooper just aren't cutting it for you anymore, former-Silicon Knights producer Erik Peterson's new studio Romper Games has a new platformer you might just be interested in. Raccoon Rising is an upcoming iOS title that draws its influences from a variety of classic games. 

Much like Sonic the Hedgehog, the story follows a raccoon on a quest to save other woodland critters from robot invaders destroying their forest homeland, while the soundtrack is very reminiscent of the Donkey Kong Country series. On the other hand, the gameplay, design, and visuals have a much more modern feel to them -- the saw blades, especially, evoke memories of Super Meat Boy. It looks great. Can I get it on my Android?

Raccoon Rising will be available for iOS devices come November 17th for $0.99.

Review in Progress: Hearthstone: Curse of Naxxramas

When many Warcraft fans hear the name Naxxramas, it conjures up memories of late nights and pizza, while taking on the tough-as-nails raid in World of Warcraft (or as I know it, Naxx). It was one of the mo...more
