Mobile - The Weekender: 100 Games Edition

#1
The Weekender: 100 Games Edition

There hasn’t been anything really worth reviewing this week, hence a lot more news bits and our usual run of features. Michael’s submitted a tips guide for GWENT, which we’ll run next week – I didn’t really feel like it was something worth rushing to review. I’ll also be trying out the new Hearthstone mode properly next week when the global beta starts. Had to re-download the game as I haven’t played in forever, but should be interesting to see Blizzard’s interpretation of an Auto Chess mode, even if it does look like a lazy man’s game of Hearthstone.

Also, make sure you grab Bastion while it’s free, if you haven’t already!

Meanwhile, in the world of mobile games…

Out Now


Honestly, there wasn’t much this week that really caught our eye or seemed worth shouting about. If you’ve spotted anything we missed, do let us know and I can update the column.

One thing that did catch my eye was an iOS-only game called Boolitaire (there is a game on android with the same name, but I don’t think it’s the same game). It’s a spooky-themed twist on Solitaire that seems to combine resource management with tactical card play. We’ve always had a soft-spot here on PT for games that do interesting twists on established concepts, and at $1.99 there are much worse ways to spend your money. We haven’t been able to try it out ourselves though, so here’s a gamepaly video from App Unwrapper:


New Apple Arcade Games


We don’t normally run dedicated updates for Apple Arcade but we just happened to get a press release through for these new additions. What’s more, Apple Arcade is now officially up to 100 games! Huzzah!

We’re not going to go into detail on all of them, but the first five of the six new additions include:

  • Takesahi & Hiroshi – An Adventure about… making a game? I think?
  • Guildings – A story-driven narrative adventure about going on a quest.
  • Marble it Up: Mayhem! – An Action/Platformer about playing with Marbles.
  • Sociable Soccer™ – A Sports management game that uses card mechanics, and has multiplayer.
  • Discolored – A first-person exploration/adventure game.
  • BattleSky Brigade: Harpooner – a scolling shoot’em-up game in the BattleSky Brigade series.

And without further ado, the official 100th game to land on Apple Arcade is…..

UFO on Tape: First Contact


Genre: Action

What would you do if a real UFO descended from the clouds? Run screaming? Or grab your iPhone and start recording?! The highly anticipated sequel to the award-winning iOS 2010 release, UFO on Tape puts you in the hot seat as you speed through the countryside in hot pursuit of visitors from outer space.


App Updates


Bridge Constructor Portal


Bridge Constructor Portal has received its first piece of DLC, nearly two years after it released onto mobile. Called Portal Proficiency, this add-on adds 30 new levels, and lets you construct bridges and choose where to place the portals.

Star Traders Frontiers


Another huge update for Star Traders – this one adds the 7th Story Era, which comes with new simulation rules, Rumors, Conflicts, and Contact actions/mutations. Enemy AI Captains also now finally use the new Carrier ship type introduced earlier in the year. There’s plenty more changes and additions as well, so make sure you check out the full update (taken from the Steam entry) to find out more.

Other games to receive updates this week:

  • Pokemon Masters has received an update that adds in new story story chapters, and the ability to swap Pikachu out for a Torchic.
  • Hearthstone received its new Auto Chess mode this week – it’ll be available for everyone to play on Monday.
  • DOTA Underlords had a pretty hefty balance update yesterday.

App Sales, Deals & Discounts


Only a few sales we felt worth highlighting this week:

  • Star Traders: Frontiers is currently at its best price this year to date at $3.99 on both iOS and Android. This is an excellent sci-fi sandbox RPG, and well worth checking out, especially with the new update!
  • Night of the Full Moon, which has never been that expensive anyway at $0.99 is currently free on iOS and Android. It’s got several DLCs/IAPs, but it’s still a pretty good solitaire card game.
  • The excellent strategy card game Age of Rivals is down to $1.99 again, but only on iOS.

Space Grunts is also discounted (since Space Grunts 2 is imminent), but it’s not the best price it’s been, so beware of that.

Seen anything else you liked? Played any of the above? Let us know in the comments!
