PS VITA PETS IS SO FETCH photo

PlayStation Vita Pets is pure nightmare fuel, buy it now

"Ah, dear tree, I honor you with my wee." This is the type of thing dogs say in the dystopian alternate reality depicted in PlayStation Vita Pets. I never really wanted to know what my dog thinks when he's ruminating over which piece ...

 
 
PS VITA PETS: GET HYPE! photo

Awww! Look at the doggies! So cute! Or at least until they were until they started talking. Stop that, guys. Seriously. It's giving me the creeps. I'm out of here. The Drop: New PlayStation Games for 6/3/2014 [PlayStation Blog]

What if Flappy Bird and Candy Crush rocked vintage covers?

Ever wonder what Flappy Bird or Angry Birds would have looked like in a different, much simpler time? A time like the early '80s and '90s? Dorkly has made it possible with these absolutely ridiculous vintage covers. You've got Candy Crush S...

 
 
Tasty Blue photo

Hahah: Tasty Blue is the Katamari of the seas

Okay, I know that this basic premise is not new. The player is a small fish, and it eats smaller fish to grow bigger, at which point it can eat more fish, and grow bigger still. The circle of life continues, and we mostly ignore it. Most g...

Candy Crush studio's next game, Bubble Witch Saga 2

What's next for the studio that bagged mountains of cash on games like Candy Crush Saga and Farm Heroes Saga? It's Bubble Witch Saga 2. I never knew there was a first game, but seeing as how the Facebook page for Bubble Witch Saga has ...

Americlap: Freedom is the only way, yeah

America, f*@k yeah! Americlap is a game where you clap your little heart out to keep the American flag flying proudly. If you stop clapping, you'll probably send a thousand puppies and kittens to their death, you hate freedom, and stand fo...

Farm your little heart out with Farming Simulator 14

What's with all of these simulator games lately? Obviously, the only one you need is Goat Simulator. If you're still hankering for some digital representation of boring, everyday tasks, Farming Simulator 14 is making its way to 3DS. It's ex...

Tony Hawk is still relevant in Tony Hawk's Shred Session

Tony Hawk is back, but not in the way you might be hoping for. TouchArcade went in-depth with the latest skateboarding game to bear Hawk's name, and it's a free-to-play iOS game called Tony Hawk's Shred Session, available this summer. Shre...

Candy Crush has a bizarro nationwide ad campaign in Japan

Candy Crush Saga is coming to Japan in a big way, as developer King has prepared a slew of rather bizarre commercials for its freakishly addictive mobile puzzler. With King having opened an office in Japan, it's no wonder a nationwide ad c...

 
 
BaZynga! photo

Zynga has lost half of its active users in the last year

The bad news is that I'm sure they all moved on to play god damn Candy Crush. For now. Until some other bright casino game or reality show about a bad 90's rapper living in an Amish community wrangles their attention so they can mentally es...

 
 
 
King.com IPO photo

Candy crushed: King.com IPO posts disappointing numbers

King.com, the developer behind the bafflingly popular match-three puzzler Candy Crush Saga, went public on the stock exchange yesterday, and it did not perform as well as the casual game behemoth had hoped. Starting at $22.50 per share...

 
 
Bears vs. Art gameplay photo

Bears vs Art gameplay shown in short new trailer

Last week, Halfbrick announced their latest game for iOS devices, Bears vs. Art, setting up a bunch of (adorable) exposition about a bear and the art museum which has infringed upon his territory but barely offered anything about how it wo...

Halfbrick reveals new puzzle game Bears vs. Art

I hope you have some insulin handy because this trailer introducing Halfbrick's new game, Bear vs. Art, is sweeter than strawberry sundae topped with candy-coated gumdrops. I have watched it four times and still giggle at how the bear's cr...

 
 
Peggle 2 on Xbox 360 photo

Peggle 2 ricochets onto Xbox 360 on May 7

Though early adoption of new consoles is something I tend to avoid these days, there is one game that has made me jealous of Xbox One users: Peggle 2. Soon enough, the ball-bouncing lesson in geometry and rainbows will not be exclusive to t...

 
 
Flappy Bird photo

Flappy Bird makes $50k per day thanks to ad revenue

If you know anyone that owns a smart phone, there's a good chance that they're currently infatuated and infuriated with Flappy Bird, the mobile game that's taking the world by storm. Despite being a shameless clone with terribly imprecise m...

There are at least 13 Flappy Bird clones already

Flappy Bird is still the top free downloaded game on Apple's App Store as of this writing. It's pretty horrible in a lot of ways, but this whole thing is also highlighting another plight that mobile gaming sees: Game cloning. Tumblr I Want ...

 
 
KAMI on Steam photo

Chill paper-folding puzzle title KAMI is now on Steam

Despite initial impressions, State of Play's recent iOS puzzle game KAMI is not about folding colorful pieces of paper into three-dimensional figures that resemble animals. Aesthetically, it does involve origami paper being folded, but mec...

Here's some videos showing off the new Peggle 2 Masters

One of the sure fire ways to my shriveled, deep-fried, black heart is to mention The Big Lebowski. Now you throw Peggle in the mix and I'm all ears; PopCap has just put some trailers online showing off the powers of some of the all-new Peg...

Sweet stat: Candy Crush Saga's been installed 500M times

Have you heard about this tiny, up-and-coming indie game called Candy Crush Saga? If you haven't, welcome to the Internet, and I'm flattered that this is the first thing you chose to read. If you have, don't feel special; it looks like ever...

A few precious moments of Peggle 2

Short clips of Peggle 2 -- so this is what it's come to ... okay! Look, I'm desperate. PopCap has "gameplay preview" videos of the Peggle Masters Bjorn, Luna, and Berg that offer a quick fix to get us through the wait for the Xbox One laun...
