DeNA is continuing their partnership with Hasbro by releasing two new titles: G.I. Joe Battleground and Dungeons & Dragons Arena of War. G.I. Joe I expect will be much like the Transformers game where you collect and bat...

The Drowning is an upcoming first-person shooter for mobile devices by Scattered Entertainment (previously known as ngmoco Sweden.) The often outspoken Ben Cousins is leading the development, and this early look at the game ...
Let me preface this by saying that I'm not 100% sure if there are already Pokemon-like games available on iOS or Android devices. I'd love to be told differently, but for now I'll tell you about ngmoco's Monster Tracker, the closest thing I've seen to a Pokemon style game on mobile yet.
It's like Pokemon in that you'll be able to find, capture, train, and battle monsters of different elemental abilities against others. You'll have multiple attacks at your disposal in the turn-based battles, and the more you fight the stronger your creatures you'll get. You can also upgrade your monsters by feeding them other monsters you've captured in the game. Yes, actually feed your monsters other monsters.
Unlike Pokemon, the exploration feature is very limited as you're just tapping somewhat randomly on the screen in rather small environments. The locations themselves are pretty, and have a nice touch interface, but don't go thinking you'll be exploring towns and running back and forth through tall grass hunting monsters.
Not my exact dream monster hunting game, but it's a step in the right direction at least. Expect Monster Tracker on iOS and Android later this year for free.
Transformers Mobile is an upcoming card battle game in the same style as ngmoco's current top hit, Rage of Bahamut. You'll be able to play as Autobots or Decepticons and take on missions where you'll be earning credits, recru...
Role-playing games have had a long and prosperous history in video and tabletop gaming, but haven't quite repeated this success on mobile and tablet devices. From the minds at Ngmoco comes Skyfall, a free-to-play social RPG that aims to execute in three key areas: exploration, combat, and co-op play.
Is it WoW in your pocket? In a word, no. But it's certainly shaping to be the next best thing.
