The Card Game ‘Age of Rivals’, Inspired by ‘7 Wonders’, Releasing June 22nd

The Card Game ‘Age of Rivals’, Inspired by ‘7 Wonders’, Releasing June 22nd

Age of Rivals, an upcoming CCG that takes inspiration from the famous board game 7 Wonders and card games like Dominion and Hearthstone, is coming to mobile June 22nd. As we wrote about a few weeks ago, Age of Rivals has you building a huge civilization with a well-balanced economy, military, culture, and defense in 10 minutes or less. You only have minimal control over your deck prior to the match, which according to the developers encourages more variety. And while it is a strategic game, it is on the casual side.

The game comes with over 200 cards that you can unlock as you go along. The game is premium, so you will be unlocking cards at a state pace and never getting duplicate cards you don’t need. And the game comes with ranked public matches, private friend matches, daily missions, tournaments, and so on. The game will launch for $ 0.99, and after the first week the price will go up. Check out our Upcoming Games forum thread for more on the game.

Wacky Physics Game ‘ Touchdowners’ Releasing June 22nd

Wacky Physics Game ‘ Touchdowners’ Releasing June 22nd

Take a pinch of wacky physics and add a pinch of American football (of sorts), and you have the upcoming Touchdowners, from the team behind the Golf Zero [Free] game. In Touchdowners, you control a team of 3 players, and you can do three things: jump forward, jump backwards, and throw the ball. Each of your three players has different skills, with the player at the front jumping forward fast but jumping backwards much slower and so on. No matter your skill, the wacky physics will ensure all kinds of silly shenanigans.

The game is coming out June 22nd (which is next week), and will be free with ads and one IAP to remove the ads completely. If you want to see more of the game, flail over to our Upcoming Games forum thread.

‘Sentinels of the Multiverse’ Getting ‘Villains of the Multiverse’ Mega-Expasion June 22nd

‘Sentinels of the Multiverse’ Getting ‘Villains of the Multiverse’ Mega-Expasion June 22nd

I’ve repeatedly written about the crazy amount of content Sentinels of the Multiverse [$ 6.99] has received in recent years, and on June 22nd the game is about to get another mega-expansion called Villains of the Multiverse, which is part of Season 2. This expansion brings 10 new Team Mode villains and 4 new environments to the game, and once it releases, almost every deck currently available for the physical version of the game (outside one deck that will also be coming to the game soon) will be available in the video game version of Sentinels. That’s quite a feat considering how much content the physical game has.

Apparently, when you add the 5 Team Mode villains from Vengeance, you get more than 380 thousand possible villain team combos to battle and more than 8 million possible hero teams you can assemble; talk about replayability. The Villains of the Multiverse expansion will come your way June 22nd, and will add new music to the game as well.

Minimalist Puzzle Games ‘Cubiques’ Coming June 22nd

Minimalist Puzzle Games ‘Cubiques’ Coming June 22nd

If you enjoy minimalist puzzle games on your phone, you’ll probably enjoy Cubiques, an upcoming puzzle game that has you playing a little red cube that has to visit all the tiles in each of the levels. While it starts out with pretty simply levels, more tile types are introduced in later levels, which change the mechanics and raise the challenge level. The game has 60 levels, so plenty of challenge for those who enjoy these kinds of games.

The art style goes for a Monument Valley kind of aesthetic, although it doesn’t capture the charm of ustwo’s megahit. Cubiques does use Apple’s Metal, so it should play pretty smoothly on later devices. The game is coming out June 22nd, and you can visit our forums to talk to the developers if you so wish.

The Terrific ‘Card Thief’ Coming to Android April 22nd

The Terrific ‘Card Thief’ Coming to Android April 22nd

Android users are about to get their heart stolen just like their iOS counterparts have when Card Thief [$ 1.99], the spiritual successor to the very well-reviewed Card Crawl, skulks over to their platform of choice. According to the official Twitter account, Card Thief will be hitting Android on April 22nd, so not long to wait now. If you haven’t had a chance to play Card Thief, think of a stealth game but played with cards. You move around a board of nine cards and have to deal with all kinds of guards that are trying to grab you. In order to successfully steal and escape, you’ll have to strategically put out torches to take advantage of the dark, because, as everyone knows, the night is dark and full of terrors.

We really liked it in our review and talked about how it takes a bit to click, but once it does, it’s an amazing experience. The game will probably be $ 1.99, just like the iOS version, and you should probably check it out.

Tin Man’s Gorgeous ‘The Warlock of Firetop Mountain’ Coming to iOS February 22nd

Tin Man’s Gorgeous ‘The Warlock of Firetop Mountain’ Coming to iOS February 22nd

It’s been a REAL long time since we last talked about Tin Man Game’s upcoming video game adaptation of the original Fighting Fantasy gamebook The Warlock of Firetop Mountain, but even way back in October of 2015 the game was looking very promising. The team has worked their butts off on the game since then, and it released on Steam back in August of last year to critical acclaim from players. Now the time has finally arrived to experience The Warlock of Firetop Mountain on our iOS devices, as today Tin Man has announced the game will be coming to the App Store on February 22nd.

As you can see, Tin Man has really nailed the tabletop RPG aesthetic while still making the game visually impressive in a video game sense. I love how the levels sort of assemble themselves right before you as you move your little figure around. The Warlock of Firetop Mountain will feature four different playable characters, each with their own unique storylines which are fleshed out by both old and new illustrations from the gamebook’s original artist Russ Nicholson. Pretty much everything about The Warlock of Firetop Mountain is looking spectacular, so if you’re a fan of RPGs, gamebooks, tapletop games, or all of the above look for it on iOS February 22nd for a price of $ 4.99.

‘Angry Birds Blast’ Launching Globally Dec. 22nd

‘Angry Birds Blast’ Launching Globally Dec. 22nd

Raise your hands if you wanted another Angry Birds game. Well, you’re getting one anyway. Angry Birds Blast, a puzzle game starring all those ill-tempered birds, is going to blast onto the App Store December 22nd, so get ready to have a blast. The game is a balloon popping puzzler that has you freeing the birds trapped in those colorful balloons. There are all kinds of puzzles to solve, the usual 3-star level rating to work for, boosters to use to take out more balloons at the same time, as well as daily challenges and leaderboards.

As you can tell, Rovio is not reinventing the wheel with this one, but at the same time it doesn’t really have to. Those angry birds are still quite famous, and a fun puzzle game starring them should do pretty well regardless of the mechanics. The game is coming out worldwide December 22nd, and if you go here and pre-register, you can get a free gift.

‘Agent A’ Episode 3 “Ruby’s Trap” Releases on December 22nd

‘Agent A’ Episode 3 “Ruby’s Trap” Releases on December 22nd

Good news: the long-awaited third chapter of Agent A [$ 2.99] is coming on Thursday, December 22nd. The point-and-click adventure game/room escape game’s third episode, “Ruby’s Trap,” picks up where episode 2 ends, with you being trapped by the suave and actually pretty evil Ruby La Rouge. I’ve gotten to play this chapter ahead of its release, and it brings more of the same great puzzling fun that the original game brought. It’s more of a room escape game in this chapter, as you literally have to escape the room that you are imprisoned in, triggering a variety of hidden objects and figuring out how they work in concert with one another. You’ll also have to deal with math at one point, but nothing too advanced. But still, math!

Chapter 3 lasts another hour or two depending on how clever you are, but it’s something that you’ll likely wind up finishing in one sitting if you’ve got the time, since the game is still so compelling. The reduced scope of the episode doesn’t harm what made the original game so appealing, even without the ‘exploration’ aspect of the game. The episode does end in such a way that it leads you toward the next episode, but at least with two more episodes promised for a total of five (the original release counts as two episodes), there’s not the letdown that I had in my original review.

Agent A‘s third chapter hits iOS and tvOS on December 22nd, and will be a free update for everyone’s who bought the game. Yak & co. has done another great job with this update, and you’ll want to pick this one up ? or for the first time ? when the update’s out.

‘Silly Sausage: Doggy Dessert’ From Nitrome Will Release on December 22nd

‘Silly Sausage: Doggy Dessert’ From Nitrome Will Release on December 22nd

Nitrome’s had themselves quite the year, with another slew of top-notch games with top-notch pixel art to their name in 2016, including the hit game Leap Day [Free]. But they are not quite done with 2016 yet, as they have one final release in store: Silly Sausage: Doggy Dessert is set to hit on December 22nd. The sequel to Silly Sausage in Meat Land [Free], where you played as a giant, stretchy, sausage dog stretching throughout various mazes. This time, you’ll be traveling through a dreamland made of cake, taking on all sorts of new trials, such as difficult challenge rooms. Oh, and there’s a boss fight where you take on the figures on a wedding cake? What?!

The first Silly Sausage was quite fun, and Doggy Dessert looks quite fun as well. Plus, with the collectable toys, there’s a Leap Day reference. Cross-game references like that are my favorite. You’ll be able to check this out on December 22nd.
