The folks at NorthPlay have just announced their upcoming game titled Conduct AR!.

Zip—Zap: “Bring the Clumsy Mechanical Beings Home”

I’m not much of a mobile gamer. I enjoy playing games just as much as the next nerd, but the need to use a touch-based interface isn’t particularly appealing. I’m used to the freedom afforded by a keyboard and mouse, or a controller.

Firewatch — Pyromance

I’ve been excited about playing Firewatch ever since Campo Santo first revealed it.

Horizon Chase — A Modern Take on an Old School Racing Game

I’ve been getting back into racing games ever since I played Driveclub on PS4 and have been on the lookout for a good racing game for every platform I own. Most people think of the Asphalt series when they think of racing games for iOS, and while those games do look nice, they are too IAP-ridden for my liking.

I’ve been playing with the iOS version of the last few days and have quite enjoyed it. Almost Impossible! is a precision platforming game that has really difficult levels. Unlike other similar games, you don’t get a level select, but instead you...
