219 game 2
Article

With so many high-profile board and card games making the move to digital, we sometimes forget about some of the smaller gems that have already made the jump. One of those is the fantastic two-player card game, The Battle for Hill 218. It's a highly tactical card game that involves playing cards according to their supply requirements, and then using them to attack your opponent or supporting your other cards. It was fast and fun and, unsurprisingly, I'm terrible at it. For some reason, it's no longer available on the App Store but never fear! Large Visible Machine is nearly ready to unleash Hill 218's sequel upon us, bringing more card slinging goodness to our touchscreens.

Superhero coop, Sentinels of the Multiverse, continues to be one of our favorite digital board/card games even after about a year-and-a-half on the App Store. Part of the reason for our continuing adoration is the fact that the guys at Handelabra apparently don't sleep and they keep adding more and more stuff to the mix. Unlike some games where too many expansions can bog a game down, more expansions in Sentinels means more heroes, villains, and never before seen combinations of the two. Truly, the game today is so much better than it was back in October of 2014. It's not far away from getting even better, apparently. Today the Handelabra crew is unveiling the latest expansion, Wrath of the Cosmos, which is coming soon. If you want a sneak peek, you can see it tonight at the Handelabra Twitch channel.

Nothing is more exciting than writing about something you know very little about. That topic, as usual, is Warhammer 40K. Yes, we have news of another Warhammer game coming to iOS and I'm going to spend the next paragraph or two improvising my way through this. While not everything regarding the background of the game will be correct, I'm sure that my improv skills are good enough that you won't notice.

Forbidden Desert 5 Dune Blaster 600x450
Article

Tabletop port, Forbidden Desert, is definitely the best stuck-in-a-desert-finding-relics-dying-from-thirst-and-heatstroke cooperative game of 2016. Well, so far. It's only April. One quality that puts it over the top is its difficulty. Despite the YA theme, the game is definitely not for the timid. Your group of adventurers will die, and die often, leading to many a lost game. Button Mash Games has heard our pleas for mercy, and has updated Forbidden Desert to v1.1, the biggest addition being a new Beginner mode.

A digital version of tabletop deckbuilder Core Worlds has been on our minds ever since the Kickstarter for it went live way back in 2014. Since then, developer BrokenMyth hasn't provided a lot of details regarding their creation--especially if you weren't a Kickstarter backer--with their blog's last Core Worlds update coming in May of 2015. Back in February we learned that the iOS version was nearing completion with an expected submission date of March 1. I'm not sure if they missed that date or if the review process lasted nearly a month, but earlier this week Core Worlds Digital did manage to to land on the App Store. To call the launch "rough" would be an understatement.

I Wish: Destiny X-COM

01 Apr 2016 0

Some people use April Fool's Day to direct some well-earned derision at the sources of our pain. I'm just going to propose an idea, in the spirit of admitting that I'm the fool, but that, despite that recognition, I still think would be awesome: Destiny X-COM.

Video Lottery Terminal manufacturer RCM Advanced Research is taking Finnish developer Supercell to court over a software patent held by the company. BCM states that Supercell's popular game 'Clash of the Clans' infringes on RCM's U.S. Patent No. 6,128,415 (“the ’415 patent”) which covers a software process to remove all of the money from a players bank account.

For a while it seemed as though the Warhammer tsunami that was overtaking the App Store had subsided. Prepare to get wet, as today is a callback to those halcyon days of yore when we couldn't go 2.4 hours without another Warhammer game announcing it's imminent arrival on the App Store. Already this morning Zac brought news of Talisman: Horus Heresy arriving on Android devices and now we've learned that last year's Warhammer 40K: Regicide is making the leap from Steam to iOS.

Nothing brings a twinkle to my eye like the madness and depravity that is Games Workshop's Horus Heresy setting. Well that and sour-mash bourbon but until I can figure a way to do home distillation with my iPhone I'm stuck using my iOS device for gaming. Even then, I'll have to wait to play Talisman: Horus Heresy from Nomad Games but lucky Android gamers can get the title right now.
