One game that has a lot of people’s interest and that we’ve been following its journey to Android is Snail Games’ upcoming Acton-RPG title called Taichi Panda. Originally announced before CES 2015, we ended up playing around with an early version of the game for a few minutes during CES 2015. Since then the game has been under development, getting everything polished and, eventually, having been released onto iOS now. So where is the Android version?

Announced a couple of days before the start of GDC 2015, Paradox Interactive had a copy of their new sequel to Knights of Pen and Paper on hands during GDC 2015 to go hands-on with. The firs game was a lot of fun so fondling the sequel ahead of time was high on our priority list of things to do after walking up a massive hill to get to our meeting with Paradox Interactive.
Companion toys are not really new anymore when it comes to mobile gaming. Nintendo has their Amiibo toys, Skylanders have theirs, and even Rovio has toys that you place near your Android device of choice in order to unlock a character in the game for you to use. Spin Masters have taken this idea and expanded on it by making the toys your scan into the game have their own stats, abilities, and so on but allowing them to be customizable by swapping out parts and adding new ones.
Created by Ariano Games, Dot Heroes: Woop Woop Ninja is a Floppy Birds clone, with an RPG twist. There isn’t much of a story to speak of, so I’ll describe the gameplay. Players control a little black dot that wears a red headband. At the start of the game, and each subsequent level (so far as I played), the dot flies/falls through the air, inky contrail and all, only moving upward when the screen is tapped.
So far Hearthstone has received one adventure-style update based around Naxxramas from World of Warcraft called the Curse of Naxxramas. Now there is a second one coming our way soon and this time it is based off of Blackrock Mountain. In fact the name of this adventure update is exactly that, Blackrock Mountain.
TellTale Games has released a new trailer for their Tale from the Borderlands series which showcases the next episode that will be arriving soon. This will be the second episode in the series, called Atlas Mugged, and will be arriving this month. Now you can take a peek at what to expect with Episode 2 thanks to this new trailer.
Back in the Summer of last year a rather neat RPG landed onto Android called Widget RPG. The concept of this game was to make playing an RPG relatively painless during every day life by having the entire thing be playable via a widget on your Android phone or tablet. That way progressing through the game can be done by simply tapping on the widget.
The Game Developer’s Conference (GDC for short) is a great event to go to in order to see games that are heading our way in both the near future as well as projects currently being worked on that won’t be coming out for awhile. Redux Ark by Hyper Games falls into the latter category as it is still in early development.
If you have ever dreamed of wearing gun-boots, Downwell may just satisfy that wish. Developed by Ojiro Fumoto, the game sports mostly black and white 8-bit visuals and I had a chance to try it out at PAX East.
The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild is the indie developer that previously made The Bridge, a black and white puzzle game. This time around they are back for another puzzle game, one of a more colorful variety, titled Tumblestone.
