<p>EVE Echoes, CCP and NetEase's hotly-anticipated MMO, has been delayed until late 2020 due to complications arising from the ongoing coronavirus epidemic. The announcement, first spotted by Mobile Mode Gaming, arrived over on the game's official Twitter account earlier today.</p><p>EVE Echoes, if you didn't know, is an epic space-based adventure where you'll decide how exactly you want to live your life. Some may be inclined to role-play as a violent, pillaging space pirate, while others will be content to live life as a long-distance trader. The systems are in place to allow you to do as you please within its gargantuan universe.<p>A notice about the official release date of EVE Echoe????#eveechoes pic.twitter.com/cF4pnBYQIx— EVE Echoes (@EveEchoes) February 24, 2020I got some hands-on time with it during CCP's annual EVE Vegas event, and I came away fairly impressed. It feels incredibly authentic to its big brother, the ever-popular EVE Online, and the still-in-development build I played already displayed a great deal of polish.</p><p>Key features, including a basic tutorial, were still missing, but I got the sense that EVE Echoes could well blossom into something special for new and returning fans. It helps that it manages to retain much of EVE Online's depth within a more mobile-friendly package fit with easy-to-learn touchscreen controls.</p><p>Four years after its iOS debut, Apocalypse Max: Better Dead Than Undead is making its way to Android at the end of the month.</p><p>Having been awarded Pocket Gamer's prestigious Silver Award, Apocalypse Max has been well overdue on Android for some time now. For those who don't know, the game follows Max, a lone survivor of the zombie apocalypse, as you attempt to tear through 20 levels of sheer chaos alive.</p><p>With 16 types of zombie, 18 unlockable weapons (including knives for you more intimate zombie-killers), and nine worlds to get through, it's an unmissable hack-and-slash that you'll probably need to own at one point in your lives.</p><p>Though still quite a steep price on the App Store (sitting at £14.99/$19.99), it's clear that you guys think it's well worth the money as its 553 reviews sit at four stars or above, alongside a glowing reception from gamers, reviewers, and journalists alike.</p><p>Android users, it's our turn to play so get excited for August 31st when the game goes live. Don't worry, we'll let you know the moment it drops so you can get on it like a car bonnet…in the zombie apocalypse.</p><p>Yet another week is flying by and there's another round of updates to have a look at. Whilst there aren't as many titles this time around, we still like what we see.</p><p>From teeny tweaks for better player experience to huge new bouts of added content, take a look to see if you'll be updating anything from this list. Angry Birds 2</p>Platform: iOS/Android<p>There are two major additions in this latest version. First, you can now adopt a Hatchling pet which'll give your flock a boost. There have also been 80 levels added in two areas, including six boss piggies to fight. Plus, if you like dressing to impress you've got two new hat sets and you can visit the Tower of Fortune to try your hand at cracking open the Jackpot Egg.</p>DomiNationsPlatform: iOS/Android<p>This 6.3 update is all about treasures of the world, and it's quite a meaty collection of notes so let me put it simply. There are five Artifacts to collect and empower, each of which have five benefits to improve gameplay, and can be reconstructed by piecing together Mysterious Fragments. Check out the full patch notes on the game page for the full detail.</p>Faily BrakesPlatform: iOS/Android<p>To celebrate its second birthday, Faily Brakes is headed back to the 80s in this rather retro-electro update. Get out your neon party gear, revive the mullet, and back-comb that hair - things are about to get funky.</p>FarmVille 2: Country EscapePlatform: iOS/Android<p>For all you FarmVillers out there, there's a new event on for you to take part in. Craft friendship wreaths for Beast Friends Forever, get ready to welcome Tenacious Tony and Sprightly Susie onto your farm, wind Eddie's Buddy for 30 days, and make it through five phases to earn rewards like keys, Padlocks, and more.</p>Galaxy on Fire 3Platform: iOS/Android<p>Alright, this one's a big one, but it's not free. In the game's Wayfarer update, you've now got the chance to purchase the full story mode (which we saw in the Switch version) for £14.99/$14.99. That sounds rather hefty, but on top of the story mode you'll get a new area on the galaxy map, five new bosses, and a special new mission.</p>GardenscapesPlatform: iOS (also on Android)<p>This is a pretty big content update. In match-3 you've got a new 'Gardening Glove' booster, and a new 'Gas Cylinder' element to change things up a little. You've also got some new adventures to dive into, including an interactive book over the river, the guest house finale, jungles and fossils, and the journey to restore a mysterious map.</p>GorogoaPlatform: iOS<p>As we mentioned earlier this week, Gorogoa's released the original 2012 demo level which gives you one more moment to spend with the game.</p>Mafia CityPlatform: iOS/Android<p>This content update is sneaking past the law as it introduces the Vigilante System. Now Vigilantes can be dispatched during cross-server events - you can even edit their names and view their Garrison & Dispatch status. There's also a hefty list of tweaks and fixes, so take a look at those on the official pages.</p>Nonstop Chuck NorrisPlatform: iOS/Android<p>It feels like a hot minute since we last mention Nonstop Chuck Norris, and this infinite action game is getting a Survival mode (where you'll battle waves of villains in an ancient Asian-themed arena), a new universe, new gear, and a legendary class pet.</p>Top Eleven 2018Platform: iOS/Android<p>Lead your National team in the International Cup by assembling and managing a second team (which has already qualified for the main tournament). Compete against other Managers to win a special trophy and earn big rewards.</p>
The Raven and the Swan<p>The folks at Stew Games have announced their latest project, called Castle of White Night. It's a pixelated, first-person dungeon crawler that takes place in a Japanese style castle, and is available for pre-order ahead of its iPhone and iPad release.</p><p>The goal is to eliminate a wave of enemies and clear the castle by defeating "twisted souls" and there are a ton of them. Why do you need to do this, you ask? Well, not only because you're the chosen one, but because it will lift a terrible curse off of the massive castle.</p><p>Although it is classified as an RPG, it does seem to have a strategic element to it, with different prompts that will allow you to unleash certain attacks and defences. You'll be able to use the on-screen buttons to open chests too, to reward you for your hard work.</p><p>There are four character classes to choose from to suit your style of play when tackling the cursed castle. Each one has their own attacks and defences such as Falcon, a knight type character that focuses on melee attacks. </p><p>Aside from dominating enemies and bosses with your weapons, you'll be able to consume items to give you an edge in battle. There are health potions and other things that you will be able to use once you collect them.</p><p>The Mighty Switch Force series did well on the Nintendo 3DS and Mighty Switch Force! Hose it Down! hopes to bring that success to iOS.</p><p>The annoying-to-punctuate Mighty Switch Force! Hose it Down! will arrive on the App Store this Thursday, February 12th.</p><p>Like Mighty Switch Force and Mighty Switch Force 2 before it, the game has you putting out fires as the hero, Officer Patricia Wagon.</p><p>You do this by utilizing different blocks to redirect water spouts and more.</p><p>Some blocks, like Mud Blocks, act as additional obstacles.</p><p>Check out the trailer below.
<p>Yesterday we held one of our Big Indie Pitch events at Apps World in London. For those who aren't in the know, these are essentially speed-dating events for developers and journalists.</p><p>Devs get three minutes to pitch their game to a table of journos or other industry figures, then someone honks a horn and they shift around to the next table and make the pitch again.</p><p>Once all the pitches have been seen by every table, we tot up the scores, and decide on a top three, who walk away with some fabulous prizes. Including but not limited to a baseball bat.</p><p>There's food, there's booze, there's a bag full of balls that's slowly emptied, and it's generally a lovely old time.</p><p>There were a few standout titles at the show yesterday, but these are the three that took away the top prizes. They're definitely worth keeping an eye on.</p>First Place - Polyganic by Fluff Stuff StudiosVirtual Slime(Unlock all items)<p>For crying out loud. It's bad enough that a black hole is trying to guzzle me down. I don't need my spaceship to be terrible at steering too.</p><p>Sorry. I need to calm down. This is what happens if you play Wonky Ship.</p><p>It's fun, I promise, but it takes a while to be anything but awful at it. I did do a flip once, though. Got bonus points for that. Pretty proud.</p><p>The idea in this game is to avoid being swallowed by a black hole. You have a spaceship and can control its thrusters.</p><p>The left side controls the left thruster and the right side controls the right thruster. Press both sides of the screen at the same time and you can sorta go forward.</p><p>The problem is that, yes, trying to steer this ship ends up being very hard. It's the worst spaceship ever. And you do, indeed, go wonky.</p>
<p>Regrettably, The Simpsons is past it. A generation's favourite TV show is now making tired jokes and trying to distract you from the fact that South Park is much better.</p><p>Let's be fair though - The Simpsons is the same age as me, and has proven to be much better at making people laugh than I have during its 26 years on the air. So why not revisit the classics?</p><p>In fact, why not revisit over 500 of them at once? This 360 Video puts you in the middle of a sphere surrounded by different Simpson's episodes playing simultaneously for 10 minutes.</p><p>For some people this is a horrific yellow prison, but for others this is a curiosity - I found myself marveling at the different timings for the introductions, and trying to identify different videos while suspended over them like some kind of god was a real challenge.</p><p>Maybe I should admit I haven't watched a new Simpsons episode in nearly half a decade.</p><p>This'll run on everything so if you've got a Cardboard, Merge, Samsung Gear or even fancy panning around with your cursor and mouse, click below.</p>
<p>Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow comes Today is a horror adventure that we introduced you to in February this year.</p><p>Since then, it's gone on to be successfully Kickstarted, and now it's being published by German adventure game creator Daedalic Entertainment.</p><p>Daedalic - known for the Deponia series, Edna & Harvey, and others - will ensure that the digital release of Dead Synchronicity goes smoothly.</p><p>It will also publish retail editions of the game in select territories - usually, Daedalic distributes these around parts or Europe.</p><p>On top of that, Daedalic is arranging and recording English and German voice overs for Dead Synchronicity. The game will also have French, Spanish, Italian, and Russian subtitles.</p>
