Umbrella Gives Upcoming 'Tidy Robots' and 'Fast Track' Release Dates and Trailers

Umbrella is one of the busiest publishers/developers on the App Store, and today they’ve set the release dates for two of their many upcoming mobile games they’re planning on launching this year. The first is for a game called Tidy Robots which we originally were given a hands-on demo of back at GDC in March. The game is about a bunch of toys who come to life and have a big old party in the toy shop where they live while it’s closed, but come morning time they’ve left an awful mess and must work to clean things up before the shop owner gets wise to what happened. That cute little premise and the colorful visuals in Tidy Robots are deceptive though, as the game is actually a series of logic puzzles that will test every ounce of your brain matter. Here’s the official trailer. Subscribe to the TouchArcade YouTube channel Tidy Robots is set to release on September 21st on both iOS and Android and will come with 80 hand-crafted levels as well as brand new levels released weekly. It’ll be “Completely FREE to play” but no word on if there will be any sort of full game unlock or ad-removal IAP. Coming quite a bit sooner than Tidy Robots is a game called Fast Track. This one comes from developer Nathan Malville who you may remember as...

Have you ever destroyed a smartphone? [Poll of the Week]

Last week’s poll summary: Out of almost 2,300 total votes, 62.7% of our readers say that the Moto Z2 Force isn’t the phone for them, and 15% say that they’re still undecided. 16.6% have already either placed their orders or are planning to do so very soon. Not to brag, but I’m probably the most careful person I know when it comes to phone safety. I don’t leave my phone face-down on the table, I always protect it with a case, and I even worry when my phone gets too close to the sink. I rarely drop my phone, and...

Native ad-blocker appears in Chrome Canary on Android

Those who like to live life on the forefront of technology and run the Chrome Canary build on Android may have noticed an ad-blocking option appear in the settings menu. The Canary channel for Android is an experimental and sometimes unstable version that includes some of the latest features Google are testing that are not yet ready for the prime time. Earlier this year, the Wall Street Journal suggested that Google may soon include its own native ad-blocker directly inside Chrome for both mobile and desktop and it seems it may be gradually activating for some users. While the...

'Clash Royale'-Like Competitive PvP 'Castle Burn' Soft Launching Soon

Castle Burn is an upcoming real-time competitive strategy game that hopes to offer a fun take on the Clash Royale formula. Castle Burn uses a card-based army system that allows you to discover new units and upgrade existing units, but also appears to add some wrinkles to the Clash Royale recipe with the ability to add new cards to your deck as you play and with buildings being more important to the overall economy. Castle Burn also has heroes you can deploy as you try to tilt the battle to your favor. It’s hard to judge how close to Clash Royale the game will be, and it might be unfair to describe a game as a Clash Royale clone just because it uses the same map style. We’ll have to play it and see. Subscribe to the TouchArcade YouTube channel Castle Burn will be soft launching for Android in the Philippines August 11 followed by an iOS soft launch in Thailand and Australia late August-early September. The developers hope to release the game Fall 2017. In the meantime, go find out more about the game in our Upcoming Games forum thread. Go to Source Author: Tasos...
