Android users can now pre-register for Super Mario Run

I'm really surprised an APK of Super Mario Run hasn't been crafted out of the iOS version and mass downloaded, but Android users hopefully won't have to wait too much longer to play. That's because you can now pre-register for the...

Review: Demon Truck

Demon Truck released on Steam last week, and I've been trying to work my way through it ever since. It started life as an entry in the Ludum Dare game jam, where developers try to make a game within 48 hours. It's got an interesting control...

Review: Shred It!

Have you ever found yourself thinking, "I'd sure like to be able to play this free-to-play mobile game on my Xbox One at a premium markup with little to no changes aside from microtransactions being removed?" Me neither, but that is exactly...

Namco's Dark Souls mobile spinoff looks like rubbish

Ah, so this is what Bandai Namco trademarked: an endless runner. Some of you were spot on. Slashy Souls is a mobile title made possible in part by GameStop -- a company supposedly "not attempting" to be a publisher -- that will release on A...

 
 
Tron Run/r review photo

Review: Tron Run/r

As far as runners go, Tron Run/r might have it all. In a genre that many scoff at for its general simplicity, this package is hardly stripped-down. In fact, there's no denying that it has significant heft. Before long, it's questionabl...

That Tron runner false starts on Xbox, pushed back two weeks

A new Disney-made Tron game came out today on two of its three scheduled platforms. The cheekily (or annoyingly) named Tron Run/r released as planned on PC and PS4. The Xbox One version suffered a seemingly significant setback, though...

Race the Sun photo

Race the Sun is fantastic, fun, and free today on PC

They say that going solar-powered is a cheap and efficient use of renewable energy. Solar-powered endless runner Race the Sun is the most cost-effective it'll ever be, but for today only. Like the game, it's over when the sun goes dow...

Review: Sonic Runners

Hey, Sega actually made a really cool mobile Sonic game...then promptly proceeded to beat it down with layers and layers of microtransactions. Oh Sega, you scamp!

 
 
EarthNight photo

EarthNight is a game about running on dragons in space

There's a lot of stuff going on in this trailer for EarthNight that I don't fully understand, but it sure looks and sounds cool. The PlayStation 4 and PS Vita (not endless) runner was painted by hand and "made to elevate the [genre] with c...
