Here’s a fun one for Trekkies (and specifically Star Trek Timelines feens): a new video from developer Disruptor Beam.
With the 50th Anniversary of the Star Trek franchise only a month away, the mobile game company Disruptor Beam today released a new video explaining the enhancements, changes and upcoming plans for Star Trek Timelines, the mobile game that lets players assemble a crew of their favorite popular characters from the series, including James T. Kirk, Jean-Luc Picard, Data, Worf and boldly explore the deep reaches of the galaxy.
Released at Star Trek Las Vegas this past weekend, the video discusses how Star Trek Timelines was originally envisioned as a Star Trek fan’s dream of uniting their favorite franchise characters to experience all that Star Trek had to offer, along with how the game has evolved since its launch in January.

In the mean time, we have the official teaser trailer below:
As we wait on upcoming game Heroes of Skyrealm, we are happy to say we have a new trailer.
About the game:
Heroes of Skyrealm is a 3D, character-focused mobile action RPG. As the leader of a rebellious band of heroes, players take command of a city in the sky, a vast and upgradeable airship that also serves as the main interface between battles.
But the real key to Heroes of Skyrealm is combat â€“ and with responsive controls and smart companion AI, leading a 3-hero team into battle is easy and compelling. A meaty single-player campaign leads into massive, real-time 3-player co-op challenges and a wide range of PvP modes â€“ including several that put user-generated content front and center.
With a strong cast of over 30 playable characters drawn from ten distinct nations, every hero illuminates a different corner of Skyrealm. While combat and idle animations illuminate their personalities, unlockable comic vignettes delve deeper into this bright and vibrant world. Though gameplay is the core of Heroes of Skyrealm, characters are at its heart.
For players that like to tinker with builds and tactics, taking new heroes into battle and discovering new synergies is half the fun. But even if players focus on their favorite trio, characters can be garrisoned in airship structures to grant bonuses, making roster expansion critical for every playstyle./

We’ve been a bit eager with regards to Rocky universe-inspired Real Boxing 2 CREED, which is the official game of upcoming major motion picture CREED; I mean, when it comes to movie tie-ins, the idea of Rocky training the son of Apollo Creed sounds interesting enough, no?
A mobile game based on that premise should be equally compelling.
In any case, we have a firm release date for the mobile game: November 19th on Google Play, to be exact. According to the most recent press release, future updates will give players an opportunity to traverse past iconic matches from the Rocky franchise.
While we impatiently wait for November 19th to roll around, we have the official trailer below for public consumption.
Mobile gamers wanting high-flying action adventures can look forward to Oinky Boinky, a ball-and-paddle game inspired by and improving upon the endless runner genre, from Rekkener. iOS device and Apple TV owners can jump for joy later this month, while Android gamers can join the fun late November.
Oinky Boinky will test players’ reactions as they help the colorful characters reach for the stars. Boinky the hedgehog wants to soar through the skies above beautiful locations around the world like Hamsterdam and The Pig Apple. It is up to the player who controls Oinky, a pig who’s ready to leave the farm, to lend his bouncy friend a hoof.
Gameplay begins with Boinky jumping into the air. Players need to position Oinky underneath his pal and then tap at the perfect moment to inflate the pig so he can bounce the Boinky to new heights. Tap too early and Boinky won’t get a full boost, losing momentum and altitude as a result. Tap too late and Boinky will hit the ground, and it’s time to give it another go.
Instead of restarting like most endless runners, play resumes from the most recently completed land. Players will enjoy honing their skill. With each level completed, they’ll be reaching heights they once thought impossible as the challenge keeps rising.
Part of the fun is exploring the themed lands and seeing campy new characters, whose costumes, names and personalities are often puns or plays on famous figures. As players progress, they unlock more bouncers like Bearlock Holmes and jumpers like Harvey Koalatel.
The game will be free (with optional in-app purchases) on Google Play. The trailer is below:
The game uses augmented reality elements to incorporate one’s environment into gameplay, creating environments unique and immersive. Toss in aliens and tower defense, and one gets a compelling experience indeed.
You receive a mayday hail from an alien vessel thatâ€™s on a collision course with your real-world neighborhood. Installing advanced software onto your mobile device, the alien message is as clear as it is terrifying: if you donâ€™t act, the situation will become catastrophic. Not just for them, but for you and your entire neighborhood.
In Clandestine: Anomaly your mobile device becomes super-charged with alien software, allowing you to see a hidden conflict all around you, and quickly build and deploy colossal structures to launch attacks and defend your neighborhood. With the help of a covert organization charged with defending Earth, youâ€™ll become Earthâ€™s first and last line of defense against a planet-wide infection.
Stage battles remotely from the comfort of home, or take the fight to the frontline by moving to real-world GPS positions, and unleash powerful airstrikes in state-of-the-art, award-winning augmented reality combat.
The game is free with in-app purchases.
