Massively popular Steam tower defence game Dungeon Warfare has finally arrived in the App Store today, after being delayed from its original August 17 release date, writes Pocket Gamer.
In the game, which currently has a 98% positive rating on Steam, the player is a dungeon lord who has to defend his dungeon against adventurers. The more enemies you defeat, the more traps and utilities you’ll be able to buy.
There are 26 different traps in all, with three upgradeable tiers each. These include pain-inflicting traps such as Dart Trap, Spike Trap, Bolt Trap and Inferno Trap. Also, physical traps that throw warriors into the dark abyss, such as Spring Trap, Harpoon Trap, and Push Trap.
You can even use the environment against your enemies by rolling a massive boulder at them and crushing them, corralling them towards a minecart track, or sending them into an ancient lava pool.
There are 40 different types of enemy bases, 12 difficulty mode runes, and 30 achievements to unlock.
The game has several modes, including the ever-popular endless mode, which can be unlocked after you’ve obtained the Infinity rune.

Finnish developer Cornfox & Bros’ popular and critically acclaimed Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas now has a sequel for fans to look forward to, reports Touch Arcade.
Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm is a free-roaming 3D action RPG, representing a major change in style from the early Legend-of-Zelda:-A-Link-to-the-Past-influenced isometric viewpoint of the first game to an Ocarina-of-Time-style third-person perspective.
Despite the major changes to how the game looks and plays, Cornfox & Bros says that it will strive to keep the aspects of the first game that made it so popular, including the lush environments, stirring music (courtesy of the returning Kalle Ylitalo), lots of secrets to find, as well as a story that will tie in with the cannon lore of the first game. In particular, the hero of the new game is completely different to that of the first, and in a different time period, but still wanting to become the Knight of Arcadia, another nod to Zelda lore.
The battle system involves sword-fighting and the casting of spells, as well as putting found items to good use in battle. The Caster is the main weapon in the game; it’s a gun that can shoot magical projectiles, and which can be used to help solve puzzles, to lure enemies, and also to cast spells.
Eurogamer reports that Niantic is rolling out a new update for Pokémon Go that is slowly making its way to various territories around the world. Once you download the update you’ll be able to assess the strength of your Pokémon, and whether or not it’s worth using up your Stardust and Candies to power them up.
This is particularly useful as its very easy to waste precious Stardust and Candies on the Pokémon due to the fact that each Pokémon’s potential maximum strength is based on hidden attributes known as IVs. In other words, some Pokémon can be trained up to much higher levels than others, and fans have already developed their own unofficial tools to help determine this, but Niantic has blocked many of these in order not to overload the game’s servers.
The new Appraisal system lets you submit your Pokémon to your team leader who will then assess your Pokémon and give you the results.
Of course there are many other features that Pokémon Go players would like to see Niantic add to the game, and there’s good news on that front too, with Niantic saying “We are still working hard on several new and exciting features to come in the future of Pokémon Go.”

Legend of the Skyfish is featured as one of Apple’s “New Games We Love” this week. Published by Crescent Moon Games and developed by MGaia Studios, it has an usual gameplay style, with the lead character Little Red Hook using a fishing pole/grapping hook as her main weapon and tool to help her get around.
It’s reminiscent of old-school Legend of Zelda, with a gorgeous top-down style and an engaging lead character in Little Red Hook.
The hand-painted graphics really bring the locations and characters to life, and you’ll love exploring the beautiful environments, with 45 handcrafted levels in total to visit. The original music score by Sean Beeson adds to the sense of adventure.
The gameplay is pretty challenging at times, with lots of traps, environmental puzzles, and scary monsters to avoid, but luckily the game doesn’t drop you too fast into the deep end and you’ll still have plenty of time to get your sea legs before things get really difficult. The controls are very simple and easy to use, and there’s also MFi Controller Support included.
So many good games out this week, including Deus Ex Go, but Legend of the Skyfish more than holds its own, so be sure to check it out!

Already very popular over on Steam, narrative-driven cyberpunk isometric rogue-like Leap of Fate is now available to download from the App Store. Developed by Montreal-based husband-and-wife team Clever-Plays, the game sees the player taking on the role of a modern-day technomancer in New York City, who shadow-walks through hordes of enemies and blasts them with powerful spells.
Gameplay is a mixture of hack-and-slash combat and rogue-like action, as well as card mechanics, with the latter coming into play when during your adventure you must engage the Deck of Fate, a magical tarot deck that turns your face into a twisted version of your existence.

Husband-and-wife Indie development team David and Brooke Condolora, a.k.a. Brain&Brain, have announced that their adorably named Burly Men at Sea will be arriving in the App Store for iOS, as well as Steam, the Humble Store, and Google Play, on September 29.
Backed by Indie Fund, Burly Men at Sea is set in early-twentieth-century Scandinavia and stars three large, bearded fishermen who set out on an adventure. Along the way, the story branches out as the burly men meet different creatures from folklore.

The intriguing Burly Men at Sea has already been nominated for SXSW’s Gamer’s Voice Award (2016) and has also been selected for the Leftfield Collection at EGX Rezzed (2016).
Brain&Brain’s first game, Doggins, was released in 2014 and nominated for many awards, including Best Mobile Game at Casual Connect and the inaugural SXSW Gamer’s Voice Award.
