Back in July of last year, developer Three Little Devs unveiled their upcoming project called The Wolf’s Bite, and it looked very interesting. The Wolf’s Bite is something of a mashup between competitive board game, choose your own adventure, and business management sim. As you might have guessed based on the developer’s name, The Wolf’s Bite is inspired by classic fairy tales like The Three Little Pigs and The Stinky Cheeseman and Other Fairly Stupid Tales, and your goal is to create a thriving business as the Pigs while simultaneously sabotaging the efforts of your competition, namely the Big Bad Wolf and his titular restaurant The Wolf’s Bite. It’ll feature both local multiplayer and single-player against an AI. Here’s the trailer for the desktop version which launched on Steam back in August of last year.
The game uses randomly generated story bits with over 500 different paths that each player could potentially take, and there are more than 20 different endings you can achieve based on the choices you do or don’t make. It sounds like a really neat spin on several different types of genres that have worked great on mobile over the years. While originally planned for release last fall just after the Steam launch, The Wolf’s Bite for iOS has taken a bit longer than expected, but it finally does have a release date of April 12th. The price will be just $ 1.99 compared to the $ 7.99 price on Steam, and the ability to use the App Store’s pre-order system should show up a couple of weeks or so before the launch date. If you enjoy board games, choose your own adventures, or lighthearted fairy tales then keep an eye out for The Wolf’s Bite on mobile next month and check out the forum thread for some discussion.

Happy last day of the week. I hope you’ve been having a good one. I have. I saw ten doggos today. So because I’m in a good mood, I thought I’d round up all of the best games that are currently on sale on the App Store.

The Pixel 2 and 2 XL were announced last week, but with most variants not shipping for a few weeks, those of you pre-ordered one are probably getting a little antsy. But starting tomorrow, October 12th, Verizon stores will have floor units of the Pixel 2s for customers (and eager tech nerds) to play with.
Get ready, everyone. It’s time to ride the dragon as if you’re the Khaleesi in Game of Thrones. Dragon Hills 2, the sequel to the very entertaining 2015 Dragon Hills [$ 1.99], is scheduled to fly our way October 12th. As we wrote about back in September, the game’s developer, Rebel Twins, has brought plenty of fun games to the App Store—including Daddy Was a Thief [$ 1.99] and Aliens Drive Me Crazy [Free]—and it looks like it’s about to give us another great one in Dragon Hills 2. In case you haven’t played the original, Dragon Hills 2 will have you riding a dragon that doesn’t just fly high above everything but, rather, dips below the earth and pops up like a deadly jack-in-a-box ready to wreak havoc on the world around.
Just one quick look at the trailer below should show you why we are excited about Dragon Hills 2. When you take dragons, add fun visuals and plenty of mayhem, you probably have yourself a winner. Dragon Hills 2 will bring three new worlds, 20 towers to conquer, 7 special weapons to unlock and upgrade, 21 Bosses, and so much more. And this time around, you are going up against modern technology, with helicopters and even spaceships trying to take you down. The game will be a premium app for $ 2.99. Head over to our forums to share your impressions of the trailer.
Indie developer Rusty Moyher and his studio Wild Rooster have announced the release date of the twitchy arcade game Train Bandit which is now set to arrive next week on October 12th. Developed during the 2017 Train Jam, Train Bandit is one of those left/right twitch games somewhat similar to Timberman and its ilk that has you playing as the titular bandit hopping back and forth between train cars taking out “The Law” that’s trying to bring you down. Here’s the brand new launch trailer for Train Bandit so you can see it in action.
We were able to check out a work-in-progress version of Train Bandit during GDC this past March, literally days after it had been conceived and built, and while it was originally pegged for a release in April Rusty has taken the additional time to polish up the experience for mobile. In addition it will be launching on Steam and Xbox One on the same day it arrives for iOS. That extra time has gone into adding additional enemy types as well as unlockable bandits and leaderboards to compete on. I’m crazy about these types of twitch high scoring games so I’ll be looking forward to checking out Train Bandit next week.
