Ingress AR game adding ‘Missions’ as side-quests for players

Ingress is a very different type of mobile game in that it doesn’t have angry or flappy birds, bad piggies, or even your novel retro 8-bit graphics – and yet it has managed to capture a modest but staunchly loyal fan and player base. Ingress is an augmented reality (AR) game where doing things in the real world – like travelling to places – gains you points and experience in the mobile game.

Oculus producing a game for Samsung Gear VR

It’s funny (not funny) how “virtual reality” hasn’t really gained momentum from the heady days of the 90s where everyone was excited about the technology until today where it’s still an obvious bystander to mainstream tech. That said, Samsung is set to splurge some of their well-earned smartphone profit on the Samsung Gear VR and Oculus is set to launch a game created especially for the Gear VR.

Foursaken’s Phantom Rift is another turn-based RPG for Android

Foursaken Media, an all-sibling outfit which brought you the mildly addictive Block Fortress on iOS, now tries its hand at Android RPG gaming with Phantom Rift, a turn-based grid-driven RPG that would be as at home on your Gameboy Advance as on your Android device. The game is loosely based on the Mega Man Battle Net, a grid-based action game on the aforementioned legacy console.

But Backflip Studios is going to give it a try, at least to capture some essence of the decades-old game.

Hugely popular ‘Wayward Souls’ has come to Android

If you’re up for a dungeon crawler that will throw you into a random room and say “good luck, hope you make it out of there alive”, then Rocketcat’s “Wayward Souls” is the game for you. It’s notoriously difficult, an easy game to get into but very hard to get past. Some people get challenged by these types of games, so yeah.

SoulCraft 2: League of Angels now out for Android

It would be an understatement for us to say that MobileBits’ first SoulCraft game was a success in terms of showing mobile platform gamers what was actually possible in terms of graphics and gameplay for Android and casual games. But don’t look now, MobileBits is out with its second RPG/Action game in SoulCraft 2: League of Angels, which serves as the logical sequel to the impressive first SoulCraft game.
