Stunning New ‘Sky’ Images Revealed

‘Monument Valley 2’ Is on Sale for the First Time Ever!

Monument Valley 2, the recently released sequel to what’s widely considered to be one of the best mobile games in existence, is on sale for a limited time only for just $1.99 (down from $4.99)! Like its predecessor, MV2 is a complete and utter masterpiece, so getting it at that low of a price is a steal. Oh, and if you’re looking for more Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals on iOS games, be sure to check out our complete roundup here.

‘REKT’ Gets a MASSIVE Update

If you still haven’t checked out Little Chicken Game Company’s spectacularly fun and addictive stunt-based driving game REKT, there’s never been a better time to do so. As promised in our interview with Little Chicken’s CEO Yannis Bolman earlier this year, a huge update has just landed for REKT that comes packing a wealth of new content, including a new arena, a new practice mode, and a whole bunch of new unlockable vehicles.

Is That… a Penis?!

The award for this week’s funniest tweet definitely goes to Amanita Design. The indie studio recently shared the above screenshot of Samorost 3, along with an observation from a player that it kinda-sorta makes it look like the game’s main character “lives in a penis.” Huh. We can’t say we’ve ever noticed. But to be fair, now that it’s been pointed out, we can’t unsee the phallic-ness of the structure. What do you think?


‘GRID Autosport’ Revs Onto the App Store Tomorrow

Feral Interactive’s no holds barred mobile port of acclaimed racing game GRID Autosport is set to hit the App Store tomorrow for the price of $9.99. The game looks beyond stunning, but before you get too excited, it’s worth noting a couple of things. 1) GRID Autosport requires iOS 11 and 8GB of free space to run, and 2) it’s only compatible with a very small handful of recent gen iPhones and iPads. Update: The game’s out now!
