Well, if it all seems pop music, then an unusual adventure from the creators of Samorost will not leave anyone indifferent. Go!
Apex Legends Mobile released almost worldwide
As we thought, Apex Legends Mobile was not released on the territory of the Russian Federation. Of course, this limitation is bypassed with a VPN, and our Telegram channel subscribers were even able to successfully download the battle royale from the App Store. The game has already started the first season with an exclusive character named Fade, reminiscent more of a cyborg from the Mortal Kombat universe. In addition, the developers have added a system of perks that affect the Legend’s abilities, increase stats, and even change the ultimate. And if you want to open all the characters, then you just need to pump the profile level.
We sit down at the steering wheel in Mudness Offroad Car Simulator
At its core, free off-road racing sims are a mess of Unity models, ads, and small levels. Now the port of Mudness Offroad Car Simulator for Android has solved this headache – the game offers large locations with several types of biomes and multiplayer. Yes, you can push another car or help it out of the mud with a tow. Of course, it is difficult to get stuck at the starting locations, but the dirt that sticks to the wheels and the body is not washed off even when swimming along the local river. Players have to complete tasks, get money and improve their horse. And if you get bored, you can always arrange a race with friends.

MMORPG MU ORIGIN 3 will be released in a couple of days
Publisher FingerFun has announced that MU ORIGIN 3 will be released on May 25th or 26th, depending on your region. Now there is hope that the game will be translated into Russian – at least this was done with the main site – but the App Store only speaks of English.

Infinity Master – a mixture of Diablo and a bagel for Android
Mobile slasher Infinity Master is available for Android in some countries, among them there is even Russia. There is no division into classes in the game, it all depends on the chosen weapon, and short runs with random power-ups and rewards will not let you lose interest in this game. Of course, dungeon crawls and an isometric camera with views of demonic symbols are a clear nod to Diablo, only demons are missing. As you progress, players unlock new and more difficult levels, where the chance of rare items falling out is much higher. Well, the icing on the cake is a leveling branch for each type of weapon.
Special Forces Group 3 clearly takes inspiration from Counter-Strike
For the shooter Special Forces Group 3, the OBT stage has begun, gamers on Android can take part in it. They will again be divided into two teams – special forces and militants – in a 4 by 4 format. Maps similar to the legendary Mansion and Dust II are available to testers, plus there are many modes, from classic to confronting the dead. In the future, the developers promise to tighten the graphics and add support for the gyroscope. So far, the game has more than 30 maps and the ability to play with bots without an Internet connection. Well, local multiplayer, as in the good old days, has not been canceled.
Marvel Snap is being made by a former Hearthstone developer
Marvel Snap is a card game for smartphones and PC. In it, gamers collect a deck of heroes and villains who must unite to repel an attack on the multiverse. Now the CBT is underway for the project, you can sign up for it through the official website, but only Android gamers from Asian and a couple of Western countries will be able to participate. The main feature of the game is card games in real time, that is, you don’t have to wait for your opponent to think. Well, the progress of the testers will not be reset, so we are waiting for the release in the near future.
The creators of Samorost announced the adventure Phonopolis
At the end, I left the announcement of a small game from the publisher Amanita Design called Phonopolis. In it, the locations and characters are made by hand using fibreboard, and the gameplay itself is recorded at 12 FPS – just like in the golden days of stop-motion animation. The composer who had a hand in Samorost 3 and Machinarium is working on the music, and the release of the game is expected on “several platforms”, one of them is PC, but we are also waiting for the announcement of the version for smartphones. As for the plot, it could be another work about a police state, where law enforcement officers are armed with mouthpieces.
