Ittle Dew goes mobile - It took a few months, but Ludosity's action adventure game Ittle Dew has finally worked its way to Android and iOS! The game stars the titular heroine Ittle Dew, a brash, barefoot, adventure-seeking young lass who likes to hit things, and her snarky flying magical fox companion, Tippsie. When Ittle finds herself shipwrecked on a strange island, all she cares about is finding as much adventure and excitement as possible, and fortunately for her, this place has it in spades. It's a gorgeous, silly, engrossing game that's filled with subtle nods to the gaming greats of yore without ever losing its own style.
Bit.Trip.Run. iOS. - Gaijin Games has done something that, in retrospect, makes a lot of sense: ported the rhythm-based platformer Bit.Trip Runner 2 to mobile devices. Originally a PC downloadable release, Runner 2 refines the colorful, insanity-driven running formula that is the series' trademark. The port trims everything around the edges and introduces touch controls, making it a very natural fit for portable devices.
Tiny Death Star makes a quick pass - The Tiny Tower meets Star Wars sim was announced just a few weeks ago by Disney, and since then the game has launched in a little place called Australia. Impressions so far have been positive, praising the game's sense of humor that spans the entirety of the Star Wars universe. A worldwide release is still slated for "soon", so the wait shouldn't be more than a couple of weeks.
