Strategy fans can look forward to The Bot Squad: Puzzle Battles hitting the App Store and Google Play on October 16 2014. This new free-to-play strategy game from Ubisoft promises a mix of classic Puzzle and Tower Defense gameplay. Both genres have traditionally fared well on smartphones and tablets, but it is not often that they are combined.

The game places players in control of robotic units that have to search for orbs in obstacle ridden maps. The robots all have unique abilities that can be combined in order to navigate the trap laden arenas of Dynamo City where the game is set. Defensive measures must also be employed in order to protect orbs from the waves of invading robot forces.

The game is developed by Ubisoft Shanghai and will feature four different strategic puzzle modes, 180 stages as well as dozens of robots for players to manage. The game will also receive post-launch support in the form of regular free content updates that include new stages, units and modes.

Although there isn’t a shortage of Puzzle or Tower Defense games for mobile devices, the team behind The Bot Squad are fans of the genre and have years of experience in the industry. The game has also been designed from the ground up for mobile and tablets, with the controls, camera and gameplay all focused on providing a great experience on smaller screens.

Only time will tell if the game lives up to expectations, but so far it is looking promising. You can keep track of the game on Facebook, Twitter or the official website and check it out for free when it launches on the 16th of October.

There is a lot that can be said about the quality of products making it through Steam Greenlight lately, but when a game is Greenlit in only four days there is usually a good reason. This is the case with “12 Is Better Than 6”, the upcoming Wild West themed shooter from Ink Stains Games. Its hand drawn visual style certainly makes for a striking first impression, but we were fortunate enough to also play an extended version of pre-alpha currently available for the game

Syndrome (Camel 101)

Looking at the previous releases of developer Camel 101 reveals two things. Firstly, they are definitely not lacking in ambition when it comes to their titles and secondly, they are getting better at what they do with each release. This is very evident in their upcoming release, Syndrome. The game opens with your character waking from cryosleep aboard the exploration and science ship, the Valkenburg. In true survival horror fashion, the shift is drifting through pace with the rest of the crew all dead or insane. You are required to get your bearings, find out what happened and figure out who you can trust.

Don't Be Patchman by Naturally Intelligent

After receiving an email from Naturally Intelligent urging me to not be a Patchman, I had no choice but to check out why this character has such a bad rep. It turns out that Patchman used his celebrity status to help a drone army enslave the Sheeple, normally happy folk who used to live in harmony with nature. Through a bizarre series of events, Patchman dies after eating a vending machine, but is brought back to life by a kind old granny who sewed him back together. Now it will be up to you to help Patchman redeem himself and rescue the Sheeple from the Drone army.
