Released late in 2017, Legend of Coin is a novel take on the coin-pushing arcade games. It’s been developed by Prope Games, a Japanese company lead by legendary Sonic The Hedgehog programmer Yuji Naka. Combining elements of monster catchers with arcade coin pushers, the blend isn’t quite like anything else.
If you’ve ever played a coin pusher before, you’ll be in familiar territory here. Use the touch controls to fling coins on the shelf, which are constantly being shunted towards you. Those that slip off the ledge end up in your pocket, to be reused or spent on bonuses and upgrades. So far so familiar. But you’ll notice at the top of the screen there’s a fidgeting foe waiting to fight you. To join the fray, you’ll need a monster of your own. These are dropped alongside the silver coins on the shelf, and can be collected, combined and levelled up. Coming in 200 varieties, monsters are your attack force, and can be summoned into battle to defeat the enemy.

Less than a day after the Nintendo Direct trolling, it appears that there's another rumour going around that we could be getting a teeny Direct sometime today complete with the announcement of Dark Souls on the Switch.
While fans have been clambering for news and begging Bandai Namco to bring Dark Souls to the Switch pretty much since the console proved its worth, there's one major question that remains to be answered: is it really a good idea?
By that I don't mean it wouldn't be fantastic to have the game on the go. As proved with games such as Stardew Valley, one of the Switch's major benefits is that you can close the console down without having to exit your game, then start it up where you left off. Sheer luxury for such a challenging game without a pause button.
As I'm sure you're aware, it was heavily rumoured over the last couple of weeks that Nintendo was going to hold a Direct earlier this morning. Evidently, this rumour didn't prove true and Nintendo had a little fun of its own riling up its fans during the wait.
It's been a long old process but we're in the final voting hours for the Pocket Gamer People's Choice Award, and it's your last chance to do something about it.
As part of the Mobile Games Awards 2018, taking place on January 23rd, the Pocket Gamer People's Choice Award is totally down to you guys. Before Christmas you nominated in the thousands to give us our list of 20 amazing games, and now there's only the check of a box to go.
If you really want to support your favourite game this is the best time to do it. Whether it's Cat Quest, Guns of Boom, Hidden Folks, Fire Emblem Heroes, or one of the 16 other excellent mobile titles nominated, you've only got until the end of today to make a difference.
As I'm sure you're aware, this week researchers revealed that Intel, ARM, and AMD had discovered gaps in the security system in their central processing units. While there wasn't much information about at the time, Apple
Despite its raging success, one of the major flaws of the Nintendo Switch is its general capacity. Though there were supposed to be game cards with double the size coming out sometime this year, it looks like we won't be seeing them for a while yet.
What better way to get back into the swing of things after a lovely Christmas break than with a dip into rumour town? It looks like Nintendo may be holding a Direct as early as next week, but we won't know for sure until closer to the time.
It's that most wonderful time of the year: the time where Glen, James, and Emily talk for 75 minutes straight about the mobile gaming highlights of 2017, including their personal top 3 games of the last 12 months.
They also bid a fond farewell to Glen, who will be moving onto pastures new in 2018.
Loot boxes have been on the tips of all gamers' tongues at some point over the last couple of months, and Apple has adjusted its own App Store guidelines for the better.
Since EA came under fire earlier this year with Star Wars: Battlefront II, loot boxes have been very much frowned upon for the simple fact that the odds tend not to be in the buyer's favour. Though, this was console so didn't affect the mobile world much, right? Wrong.
When these loot box-like products called Ultimate Hero Chests arrived in Marvel Future Fight, the community was having none of it. IAPs certainly aren't uncommon, but offering up some of the game's strongest characters in these boxes is another thing.
It’s been quite a year for the popular strategy MMO Lords Mobile. This rich fantasy adventure full of warring kingdoms and epic battles has kept its high rank on the global charts since it first launched way back in 2016. Lords Mobile has amassed over 90 million players during its life-span, and its Singapore-based developer IGG is making a strong case for the game being recognised as the NO. 1 strategy MMO on the App Store right now, having outperformed it's closest competitors for 4 consecutive months.
After winning “Most Competitive Game” for Google Play’s Best of 2016 awards, Lords Mobile has gone on to feature on the App Store and Google Play 8 times in 2017. Lords Mobile has maintained a steady spot among the top 5 Simulation Games among 21 countries on iOS and Google Play, holding onto the number one spot for the past four months.
