Oscura is a platforming game available on mobile devices (both iOS and Android) for back in 2011. While reaching a modest 50,000+ downloads, it was nominated for a Webby award. The gameplay was fairly simple, controlling things like which direction to run, jumping, or slowing down time. The look was the popular dark silhouette foreground with bright primary and secondary colors in the background. I that it was a fun game to play that wasn't all that complicated, not was it all that lengthy at twelve stages.

While there are a few games on sale for this Fourth of July celebration, you can’t find a better price than free! Seemingly out of nowhere, MobileBits has released their second Action/RPG game in Soulcraft 2: League of Angels. The first SoulCraft game was a successful entry for MobileBits and the graphics and game play were fun. As a matter of fact, the original game really impressed us with what was possible on mobile devices.

If you are not familiar with the series (then you obviously have never met my brother..) it is a hack and slash style RPG based on the novels of Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. The mobile adaption takes the role playing game- something difficult to perfect on a mobile device, and turns it into a MOBA- a more sympathetic genre for tablets and phones.
HyperDevBox is known to release these massively sized Android games which usually are tactical RPGs or robot-filled arcade games such as ExZeus. Their newest game, which is now available on Google Play, isn't either of those two types of games.

99 Bricks Wizard Academy is a new Tetris style of game but it does have one very significant twist to it then most other ones that mimic Tetris.

Roughly a week ago we reported on Civilization Revolution 2 coming to mobile soon thanks to 2K Games and Firaxis Games teaming up.

One game we are currently keeping an eye out for getting released is Devolver Digital's and Deconstructeam's The Gods Will Be Watching game, set to be released onto mobile in the very near future. For those of you who missed our previous coverage of this game, this is a great retro-style adventure game that is themed around making good moral decisions. Almost like how The Walking Dead is in a lot of ways since your choices decide the progress you make through the game.
