Dabadu Games have made a creative low poly puzzle-platformer using a very old technology. They took the idea of the old red-reveal secret message system where you use a red film to find a message hidden behind a bunch of red squiggles and put it into a puzzle game.
The board game industry is a booming one, growing significantly over the last few years. With this uptick, I can't say that I'm surprised to see physical board games being ported over to mobile and PC. Mysterium is the latest example of this trend. In this game, players will be helping to solve a murder mystery, with the help of the deceased.
Towaga has arrived and tasks players with the unenviable job of standing alone in the dark and keeping the shadows at bay. The gorgeously-designed shooter is now out on Android, and asks only one thing of players: Don't get hit.

War Wings, the WWII aerial dogfight game, will be heading to new regions in the next few months. They’ll be opening the game for North America, the UK, and Russia. This title has great reception so far and I’m excited to see the release expanded.

Growing up, I was awful at video games that were based on sports. At one time, I was a rabid football fan, yet couldn't handle anything that came after the early Tecmo games. Oddly enough, I always seemed to fair better on the spin offs, that were based on sports, but only loosely so. Bang Bang Tennis is one such game, that is only reasonably close to Tennis in the proper sense, but still seems to have its own spin on how the game is played.
