You could be the laziest person in the world and still be a badass in Wild Wild West, which is coming out tonight.You play the role of a deadly gunslinging cowboy who arrives in wild west towns to clear them of pretenders. They charge at you in waves, and you charge right back, shooting them all while you remain unscathed.All you have to do in Wild Wild West is move the cowboy around with a virtual d-pad. It appears on screen where ever you place your thumb.The cowboy shoots on target automatically, so your only concerns are dodging the bombs, bullets, and stakes in your path.You also have fast-moving rockets launched at you every now and then. They flash up on the side of the screen with an exclamation mark to indicate where and when they're coming from.The harder task is defeating the bosses, which requires you to be more alert, and react quicker to more obstacles. But, in the end, you'll beat them if not by skill then by being overpowered.You see, Wild Wild West lets you buy upgrades to your shooting and movement speed, gun damage, health, and more. You do this by spending the coins that you collect from fallen foes.You can't level up that quickly unless you want to buy extra coins via IAPs. So it doesn't feel like the game gets too easy too quickly (it's actually quite hard). And you still need to dodge well to win anyway - with IAPs or not.It's a compelling if simple shooter with charming pixels and an addictive gameplay loop. It's one of those games I meant to try out for two minutes and spent 15 minutes playing it without realising it.You can download Wild Wild West for free on the UK and US App Stores at midnight.

Tap Titans 2: Heroes Attack Titans. Clicker on!(Mod Menu)If you want to make a new handheld retro gaming console, where do you go? Kickstarter of course! And that's where you'll find the Raspberry Pi-powered eNcade as it's crowdfunding campaign comes to a photo-finish close.Although the 3D printed prototypes might look a bit rough around the edges right now, this console has some features that'll get any retro gamer's thumbs itching.Portable PiThe brains of the eNcade consist of the popular, hobbyist computer-in-a-fag-packet, the Raspberry Pi. A great choice, as it's already adept at emulation and is ridiculously affordable. Accompanying it will be a 2.8-inch display, HDMI output, two analogue thumb sticks, a d-pad, four control buttons and a couple of shoulder buttons.But what's really exciting is the custom-made retro platform that sits seamlessly on top of the Raspbian Linux distro. By making use of the included wi-fi adaptor you'll be able to play your retro games with full online multiplayer. Initially the SNES, NES and Mega Drive/Genesis will be supported for online multiplayer, with a host of other systems working happily in offline mode.A username system will allow you to connect with other gamers via invites, and an additional voice chat function is also in the works so you can smack talk while you go head-to-head on Street Fighter II, or talk strategy while battling it out in a co-op game of Streets of Rage 2.This alone makes the ~£130 handheld very desirable, so head on over to the Kickstarter page now to help push it over the impressively frugal $6,500 goal.
Creator of Hookball, Nachobeard has revealed its next mobile game to be a 2D platformer called Cerulean Moon.Cerulean Moon may look like your usual platformer but as Nachobeard's video about it, released today, it plays out a little different.Rather than controlling the character as you would do in a typical platformer, you move the world. You do this by sliding your finger on the screen left or right.As you cannot control the character directly it's up to you to move the world under their feet in a way that doesn't get them hurt.This involves timing movements right so they don't land on spikes, allowing them to land on enemies to hurt them, and falling through the streams of fireballs rather than into them.
