My latest iPad purchase seemed pretty dubious—$2.99 based on a couple of strange screenshots and an app icon featuring a business shirt covered in bloody pawprints. As it turns out, my investment in The Executive was smart money.
Earth beats Water. Water beats Fire. Fire beats Earth. That’s the basis for mobile fantasy trading card game Earthcore. From there it gets complicated.
If Erica Page can’t battle her way through a haunted mansion filled with horrific beasts and break an ancient curse before sunrise her life is forfeit, her soul trapped for all eternity. Doesn’t that sound like fun?
In order to give reviewers an idea of what they can do with crystals in the new Marvel Comics action RPG Future Fight, developer Netmarble provided special builds packed with more than $9,000 worth of in-game currency. Just a tad bit overboard.

Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe has been quite a source of surprises lately, from a moving musical number about relationships to a premium mobile RPG that channels the spirit of Paper Mario.
Over its first four iterations Gameloft's Diablo-esque Dungeon Hunter has transformed from excellent premium mobile game to mildly greedy free-to-play.

I want to enjoy a MOBA. I've tried every popular multiplayer battle arena game — DOTA 2, League of Legends, Heroes Of The Storm, Infinite Crisis.

On the one hand, Spider-Man Unlimited is a free-to-play mobile game from Gameloft. On the other, it's a game with fourteen different versions of Spider-Man to collect at launch. "Free-to-play mobile game from Gameloft" versus "fourteen different versions of Spider-Man." I am so conflicted.
Feature mostly female feathered heroes and released alongside a line of pink-centric toys, one wouldn't be blamed for assuming Angry Birds Stella is a game for "girls." It's a game for any fan of the series who wants to see how far it's come — and the unfortunate direction its going in.
