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.

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.

The Old City: Leviathan

As the protagonist of The Old City: Leviathan kept addressing his claustrophobic surroundings as if it was a living entity I was convinced that he was mad. Not that I could blame him really. Described as a “sewer dwelling isolationist” who is making his way through the bleak environments of a decaying city, it is hard not to feel sorry for the nameless protagonist. You might view the world through his eyes and direct his movement, but you are certainly not playing “as” him. I was intrigued by his musings, but certain that he was mad, until the city answered.

Open world games are rather common these days, all vying to outdo each other in terms of scale and content, but not many literally promise you the moon. Deliver Us The Moon, from Dutch developers KeokeN Interactive, casually mentions “open world lunar exploration” as a feature, which should be enough to get any science fiction fan salivating. The game casts players in the role of a rogue astronaut who is sent to the moon on a secret mission to save humanity from extinction.
