Halfbrick Studios haven’t been having a good year. They recently laid off half of their workforce and with that sudden change have also decided to start concentrating all of their efforts on their two most successful licenses, Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride. Their latest release on the Play Store is an open beta product still under development. It is called Fruit Ninja Fight, and as the name would suggest, it’s a multiplayer-focused Fruit Ninja game.
The iPhone Game Boy case featuring Tetris and other classic games snaps onto the rear of an iPhone ranging from the iPhone 6 all the way to the iPhone X, and is a fully functioning Game Boy wannabe as it comes pre-loaded with multiple games.
The folks at Campo Santo are bringing Firewatch to the Nintendo Switch. The developers have been busy stripping the game "down to the studs" to improve performance. Specifically, optimizing load times for textures and geometry. "We know what a good S… Engadget RSS Feed
The original Pako – Car Chase Simulator [$ 1.99 / Free] began life on mobile back in the summer of 2014 as a super fun and stylish endless survival driving game, and it only grew and grew from there with a slew of updates in the years that followed. Eventually it found its way to desktop where it was also quite well-received. For the sequel, developer Tree Men Games went in the opposite direction, creating a game for desktop and console first and then porting it to mobile in January of this year. To get the game working well on mobile, the visuals were toned down and some of the content from the console and PC version was left out, but that didn’t stop Pako 2 [$ 1.99] from being one of the most fun releases of 2018 so far. Now Tree Men are beginning to flesh out the mobile version to bring it more on par with its older siblings, and today a new Pako 2 update has added a new level and three new vehicles into the game.
The new level is called Sunny Coast, and it unsurprisingly features plenty of sunshine and coastal decor including the beach and the ocean. The three new vehicles are the weird futuristic sports car the Leguan, military-style truck Wolf, and a modified police-style vehicle called the Fox. As great as this new update is for existing owners on iOS, it’s even better for Android players as alongside this new iOS update Pako 2 has also launched on the Google Play Store. I loved Pako 2 so much I picked it for the Game of the Week when it released in January, and it’s been in constant play rotation on my iPhone ever since. If you enjoy games with tons of action and frantic moments, as well as premium games with no IAP, I highly suggest checking out Pako 2, now on both iOS and Android and with tons of cool new content.

Personal privacy is and probably always will be a difficult topic now that a digital lifestyle has become indelibly linked to our culture. It’s not enough to stop using a service, we should be able to have data deleted from the servers just in case a hacker manages to gain access. Google Play Games has long offered the ability to erase entire profiles, which includes the Gamer ID, XP, scores, and any other data saved to its servers.
Valve has gone ahead and quietly hidden a link to its Steam Machines webpage from the Steam store itself, a move indicative of the ill-fated project to push a console-like transition for gaming PCs in the living room. The move, noticed by PC Gamer today, doesn’t mean Steam Machines can no longer be purchased. You can still find the live link here, and you can even purchase the recommended Alienware Alpha Steam Machine from Dell if so choose, as well as the Valve-designed SteamOS controller over on Amazon. But the “hardware” tab on Steam now only shows the Steam Controller, the HTC Vive headset, and Valve’s game streaming service Steam Link.
It’s clear Steam Machines are no longer a priority for Valve, which couldn’t overcome the product…
