WARTILE Coastline 600x338
Article

In early March we found a couple of interesting looking titles, fresh on Kickstarter, that were coming to both PC and mobile. The first was Wartile, a HeroScape doppelgänger with a pseudo-real-time mechanism at its core. The second was post-apocalyptic interactive fiction based on a board game, Posthuman: Sanctuary. Both games looked deeper than your usual mobile fare, so we looked forward to seeing them devel...wait, what's that? Nevermind. They're dead, Jim.

You can now get Pocket Tactics' 2014 Runner-Up Best Sports Game, Motorsport Manager, for free (on iOS). None less than our Fearless Leader, Owen Faraday himself, described it as "quite possibly the best sports sim on mobile." My comprehension of automotive racing begins and ends at Ricky Bobby, but this game makes me care about Formula 1, and I'm not alone: Christian West's game really nailed it, topping the sports game charts internationally.

When Zac reviewed Planar Conquest, he found it to be impressively large, deep and complex, comparable to any big PC 4x title, but that it also felt very much like a desktop grand strategy game crammed onto a tablet. Planar Conquest is obtuse, with a steep learning curve, mediocre in-game explanation of stats, and a bright, shiny high-contrast art style that often feels at odds with it's theme. Nonetheless, Planar Conquest is a textbook desert island game, and now it's available for Android.

I recently played my first game from Renegade Game Studios, their timed dice-roller, Fuse. It was a big hit, especially with the kids, and it helped that Renegade has published a companion app for the game which adds a little bit of pizzazz--and snark--while playing. Turns out Fuse isn't the only foray into digital from Renegade as this week they announced a partnership with Dire Wolf Digital to bring their catalog of tabletop games to mobile, with the first title being Lanterns: The Harvest Festival.

It's been awhile since we've heard from our friends at HexWar, hopefully because they're putting the finishing touches on 1775: Rebellion and want to surprise us. We can hope all we want about what's going on behind the scenes, but HexWar is also busy on this side of the curtain. Today they released the latest game in their Civil War series, Civil War: 1861.

It’s not easy, running the 2nd-most popular mobile OS, but today Android strategy gamers have something be happy about (beyond the sense of wellbeing that comes from not owning a Windows Phone). That’s right, Humble Mobile Bundle 17 is out, and it is, scientifically speaking, the best one yet.

Last year's This War of Mine was one of the better games for iPad, and a truly visceral gut punch. Instead of focusing on the military aspects of war, TWoM focused on the horrors of being a civilian caught in its wake. The game was dark, brooding, and forced you to make choices that you didn't want to make. What This War of Mine was missing was children. 11 bit studios aims to fix that with the "sequel", This War of Mine: The Little Ones.

For a game that was nominated for the Spiel des Jahres last year, it's remarkably hard to find The Game. Not a physical copy, mind you, just trying to find any information about it online. Try typing "The Game" into any search engine and see for yourself. I can't even find it on the world's largest game site, Board Game Geek, without typing in the German subtitle. The Game was released yesterday for iOS Universal and, lucky for us, can be found under it's English title, The Game - Play...as long as you can!.

Back in late February we showed you a preview of the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game which was supposed to be hitting our tablets next week, on March 29. I hope you have other plans, because yesterday Obsidian Entertainment announced that the release date was no longer next week, but had been pushed back to April 26.

Last year's Vietnam '65 was a fantastic game, a wargame in which controlling the hearts and minds of the local population is just as important as which hexes your units occupy. Every Single Soldier isn't done delving into wargames with a slightly political bent, as their next game will delve into the Middle East, specifically Afghanistan '11.
