Color 6 is a well, colorful puzzle game in which you fit geometric shapes on a 2D board to score points. It can get tricky when you can only match shapes of the same color, and the hexagonal board starts to fill up. We have a few tips to help you get a high score while using the fewest moves possible.
Headshot ZD: Survivor vs Zombies Doomsday, an action survival game where you—as you can guess from the title—take out zombies, rescue those who’ve been lucky enough to survive like Glenn did in The Walking Dead, build up a camp that can withstand the apocalypse, and keep on surviving. As you can see from the trailer, there’s a whole map you can explore and clear out of zombies. In order to keep going, though, you have to keep your base up and running by collecting resources and upgrading the various buildings in the base. If that was all there is to the game, it would be just another base builder, but Headshot also adds a 2D shooting part where you select various weapons and go to town on those zombie heads.
The game has some really cool pixel art, a ton of content (more than 100 unique types of survivors and zombies according to the developer), and looks like it’s going to be fun to play. Headshot ZD is going to be free and should release October 19th (or thereabouts). If you want to learn more about the game, head over to our forums.
Solo developer Casey “Boz” Weeks has been building a new mobile game for the past three years called Cereus, which he describes as a “towerless tower defense game.” The idea is that you’re tasked with protecting your base at the center of the screen as all manner of dangers head your way. You have three main means of defending yourself, and true to his word, none of them are towers. You can simply tap an enemy to attack it, you can swipe to create a barrier that will reflect enemy bullets back at them, or you can long press on the screen to detonate a huge bomb. You can see all of this in action and explained in detail in the following trailer for Cereus.
One of the main elements of strategy in Cereus is the skill tree, which doesn’t simply increase your damage as you progress like in many games but actually enhances your main abilities in a number of unique ways allowing for a variety of tactics. There is also a combo system that triggers when you defeat enemies in succession, which will be key to beating some of the harder levels in Cereus. There’s been plenty of games where you’re defending the center of the screen, but typically they’re more on the arcade shooter side of the spectrum. I like that Cereus is going for a more strategic approach, and I especially like how the abilities are designed for the touchscreen. No specifics on a release date just yet but Cereus should be out sometime this year and you can sign up for more information on the official website.
After a relatively short soft launch period, Taichi Panda 3: Dragon Hunter [Free] has spread its wings worldwide and is now available to everyone. The third game in the series brings much-improved visuals, a much larger world than before that also includes 360-degree battles, and a lot more. Taichi Panda 3 will feel more like an open-world game this time around since it brings to the series a seamless map, although I hope it doesn’t also feel empty on the edges. And, as you probably guessed from the game’s title, Taichi Panda 3 brings along huge dragons you can tame, ride, and use to take out everyone around you Game of Thrones-style.
The game has you picking a side this time around, so you’ll be joining one of two rival camps, each with their own unique characters. I’m sure the game also offers a ton of things to collect, things to kill, and things to kill and collect. And you can play with your friends too, taking the field with them against various bosses. The game is, of course, free-to-play, and it offers a Subscription for those who don’t mind paying to get more out of a game.
