Pokémon has a new challenger on the Apple App Store -- Bandai Namco's DigimonLinks. The monster battler has been available in Japan for quite a while, but today it has finally made its way to the US. Bandai Namco last week released a trailer highlighting the game's battle system and other features. You can watch it below.
The Appocalypse arrived this week rendering lots of App Store titles useless, but the popular XCOM: Enemy Within in not one of the iOS 11 casualties.
In case you didn't know, Apple stopped supporting 32-bit apps with the release of iOS 11. Any app not updated to support 64-bit will no longer work on newer devices, like the iPhone X, or devices updated to iOS 11 or later. A lot of apps were left to fall on the wayside after the rollout, but a lot of developers also surprised mobile gamers by actually updating their titles with 64-bit support.
Warhammer Quest 2: The End Times is now open to beta testers with certain devices. Developer Perchang is now accepting requests from iOS users with an iPhone 5 or newer, iPad 4 or newer, iPad mini 2 or newer or sixth-generation iPod touch. To participate you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, your device, language and the email associated with your Apple ID.
As we've mentioned before, mobile Warhammer games have really improved since Games Workshop started licensing the IP to other developers. Fans of strategy titles seem to enjoy Slitherine's Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon, and Touch Arcade has called Warhammer Quest "one of the best tactical RPGs on the App Store."
iOS users who agree that Warhammer Quest is a decent title will be excited to know that Perchang announced that Warhammer Quest 2: The End Times will launch on October 19th.
A lot of games are being left behind due to the upcoming 32-bit apocalypse, but some are being updated with 64-bit architecture support, while others are being totally rebuilt from the ground up. One game being remastered for iOS 11 is Duke Dashington, according to Touch Arcade.
Duke Dashington follows a bumbling adventurer who keeps accidentally collapsing the ancient ruins he is exploring. In the game, players must collect as much treasure as possible and reach the exit in 10-seconds before Duke is squashed.
No one in their right mind should be excited for the re-release of Night Trap, but some of us can't help ourselves. Night Trap was originally released in 1992 for the SEGA CD, and it is best known for its confusing story and lackluster gameplay. Later ports of the game have also been criticized since it didn't really age very well. So why would anyone be excited for the Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition coming to the PlayStation 4 and PC?
Because Night Trap is a glorious B-movie starring Dana Plato. It also played an important part in video game history being one of the titles along with Mortal Kombat that was scrutinized during the United States congressional hearings on violence in video games.
