Hamsterdam Is The Perfect Name For This Bite-Sized Brawler
Your browser does not support HTML5 video tag.Click here to view original GIF

Which came first, the name Hamsterdam or the game Hamsterdam? However Muse Games came up with the name for this charming tap-and-swipe beat-em up, it fits. Once little Pimm starts doling out the beatdowns, it’s like, “Damn, hamster.”

Released earlier this month for iOS, Android, Switch, and PC, Hamsterdam is a story...

The Star Ocean Mobile Game Is Shutting Down

The Star Ocean Mobile Game Is Shutting Down

Barely a year after launching in the West, free-to-play mobile RPG Star Ocean: Anamnesis is shutting down. Players have until November 5 to finish collecting characters before Square Enix pulls the plug.

Star Ocean V was not good. Instead of Star Ocean VI, we got Star Ocean: Anamnesis, a mobile gacha game in which players collect characters and form fighting squads. Switching focus to mobile...

Raiders Of The North Sea Is A Really Good Digital Board Game

Raiders Of The North Sea Is A Really Good Digital Board Game

As I’ve recently put on record here , I think Tokaido is the best digital board game. Its stay at the top might be short-lived, though, because Raiders of the North Sea, out this week on PC, Switch and mobile, is very good.

The Best Board Game You Can Play On Your Phone

Phones are of course great to play actual video games on, but they’re also quietly one of the best…

Fortnite Adds Titans (I Mean Mechs)

Fortnite Adds Titans (I Mean Mechs)

The new season of Fortnite started earlier today and brought a new round of surprise changes. The most titanic one to drop? A new two-player mech called the B.R.U.T.E.

The new vehicle is showcased in a trailer for Fortnite Season 10 (or X, as they’re calling it).

An official blog post outlining the seasonal changes to Fortnite Battle Royale and the game’s other modes. It promotes the...

Android Is Now Unofficially On Nintendo Switch, And It Looks Great

Android Is Now Unofficially On Nintendo Switch, And It Looks Great

Back in 2018, an exploit was found in the Nintendo Switch that would allow users to run outside code . While that’s of course led to some piracy, it’s also let modders and coders have some fun with the console, up to and including getting Android running on the system, with all the features and tricks that brings along with it.

As this video from xdadevelopers shows, by running Android—off an...

The New Game From Journey’s Creators Feels Like A Dream

The New Game From Journey’s Creators Feels Like A Dream

In the new game Sky: Children of the Light ethereal figures prance and soar through gorgeous landscapes and crumbling temples. These characters hold candles and spread light throughout the world. At least, I think that’s what’s going on in ThatGameCompany’s first new game in seven years. It’s abstract.

Out now on iOS and coming eventually to Android, Sky: Children of the Light feels like an...

Lego Makes Tiny Tower Just A Little Bit Better

Lego Makes Tiny Tower Just A Little Bit Better

With more than 10 million downloads on iOS and Android devices, Tiny Tower is one of the most successful business simulation games of all time. Now NimbleBit has teamed up with Lego to make essentially the same game, only with Lego bricks and figures. It’s called Lego Tower, and it’s nice.

Tiny Tower is a free-to-play mobile game about building a tower, floor by floor. Residential floors...

There’s A Flappy Bird Battle Royale Game Now, And It’s Good

Flappy Royale, released today in beta on mobile and PC by game designers Orta Therox, Em Lazer-Walker, and Zach Gage, seems like a lot of things: clever, opportunistic, a joke. But it’s also fun.

Inspired by the 2013 mobile sensation Flappy Bird, Flappy Royale has you compete against 99 other poor souls to see who can survive the longest against a maze of deadly pipes. You can customize your...

You Can Now Play Counter-Strike 1.6 On Android Phones

You Can Now Play <i>Counter-Strike</i> <i>1.6</i> On Android Phones

This is Counter-Strike 1.6 running just fine on a mobile telephone. Servers and everything.

Is it the ideal way to play the game? No. But it’s a lot more practical than folks trying to get Doom running on calculators and ATMs.

The touch controls look like a pain, but this being Android, it’s not going to be hard hooking proper peripherals up to your tablet/phone if you need more...

Nintendo's Mobile Game Dragalia Lost Has Finally Lost Me

Nintendo's Mobile Game Dragalia Lost Has Finally Lost Me
Kotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.  

From its launch in late September through mid-May, Nintendo’s mobile RPG Dragalia Lost was part of my daily routine. I only missed one daily login during the entire period, and that was because I was recovering from surgery. But, over the past couple of weeks, the game’s pull on me has faded, and my play...

Rhythm Games Don’t Get Much Simpler And Sweeter Than Muse Dash

Rhythm games can be pretty complicated, twisting players’ fingers into knots as they try to keep track of four to six lanes, each delivering a brutal barrage of notes. PeroPeroGames’ Muse Dash has all the quirk and charm of a DJMax or Superbeat: Xonic , but it controls with just two buttons.

Already a hit on iOS and...

Using only speech recognition software instead of a mouse for Hearthstone? What could go wrong?

Playing like this feels frustrating enough, as you can see in Gloudas’ clip, but playing against someone who uses only voice commands might be even worse.

A good puzzle game latches onto my mind and never lets go. One of the best ways to achieve this is to lead me along a perfectly plotted difficulty curve. MythicOwl’s math-based puzzler, Hexologic, is a prime example of how that’s done....

Creator Of Original Mobile <i>Snake</i> Is Making A Sequel

Can you teach an old snake new tricks? I hope so.

Taneli Armanto, the creator of the original mobile version of Snake (which debuted on a 1997 Nokia handset) is attempting a comeback this month with Snake Rewind, a new and (allegedly) improved next act for the classic puzzle game that’ll release on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone devices on May 14. I am surprisingly intrigued by his offering....

The Skylanders Return In A New Mobile Game

The Skylanders Return In A New Mobile Game

Available today worldwide on iOS and Android devices, Skylanders: Ring of Heroes takes the colorful characters from the toys-to-life series and turns them into pawns in a free-to-play, character-collecting role-playing game. That’s fine, I guess. Not like Activision was doing anything with them recently.

Aside from the animated Netflix series, we haven’t heard much from the Skylanders since...
