Opinion: Falling Back in Love with Phone Gaming with a Plus Size Phone

We'll be back with news and videos later this week as we start to hear things coming out of Essen and releases start hitting. For now, I wanted to share something that has been on my mind over the past week.



This cycle, I decided to go from an iPhone 6 to an iPhone 7 Plus. This is my first experience with a "giant" phone, and I was nervous on the outset. I was not afraid of it exploding like some phones (*wink*) but I was really concerned about the size with kids and my daily lifestyle. (Note: I am not anti-Android at all, iOS is just the ecosystem that makes the most since between work and personal needs)

What tipped me over the edge was the new camera, but it ended up having an unexpected benefit. While my iPad used to be my chief gaming platform, the expanded screen size of the iPhone plus has made it a great place to game.

The new phone has made playing board game ports like Paperback, Ascension, and other much easier. The screen size is big enough to replace the iPad for single player board gaming in many cases. It makes many board game ports more viable than ever before.

This larger phone has also breathed new life into some old favorites. Namely: Magic Duels, Hearthstone, and Pathfinder Adventures.



Magic Duels has that terrible burdensome UI that it has always had, but while the normal version was near unplayable, the larger screen makes things much more bearable. I’ve been having a Magic itch recently, and it was great to play through some samples of recent sets. The iPhone Plus really makes this a more portable experience.



Hearthstone has been a mainstay on my iPad for many years. The iPhone version is excellent and the Plus just gives it more of that sit back experience. I feel like I am getting a great UI without having to pull out the iPad. It’s really helped me get back into the Tavern Brawls and the recent single player campaign release.



Lastly, Pathfinder Adventures is excellent on a Plus phone. With this new real estate, I’ve been able to dive into adventures much more quickly on the go. I really think this one is a big win.

The iPhone Plus has really opened up iPhone gaming me. It’s been harder and harder to justify it recently and this helping me fall in love all over again. I am not suggesting everyone go buy a giant phone, but if you have been looking for a more gaming focused phone, I think the larger screens are really where it is at.

Asmodee Reveals More Details on Colt Express
Back in August, Dave let us in on more details about a digital version of Colt Express. Today we've got a huge info dump from Asmodee on their upcoming partnership with Frima Studios.

The basics: It will be an online, multiplayer, version of the game coming to iOS, Android, and PC. It is expected for release in late November at a price of $6.99.

On top of that, they've revealed details on a bunch of features:



- Character Stories
Looks like they'll be going big on the characters. There will be special stories for each one including graphic novels on each. It looks like there are more than 30 chapters involving the different characters. The story mode opens up new items, skins, and variants. They say the variants change the way the game is played.



- Online Multiplayer Gaming
While there will be single player, it looks like they are going big on real-time gameplay with friends. It looks like there will be a leaderboard along with a friends list for quick play with friends.



We'll let you know more details as we get them.




Smash Up Coming to Early Access on October 11th
The digital version of Smash Up from Nomad Games will be available on Steam Early Access starting on October 11th. They've put a coming soon page up on Steam with new screenshots and a few more details.

As a reminder, here is the trailer for the game:




Baseball Highlights 2045 Updated
Baseball Highlights 2045 has been updated introducing a new Normal AI and the ability to choose which expansions to play with.

Here are the full notes:
Quote:

Bug Fix; The green checkmarks were not being properly set after a resume of a saved game.
Bug Fix: It was possible to save an On Deck card and tell the pop-up dialog you were not saving a card, which resulted in a corrupted game.
Feature: Introduced Normal level AI. Made improvements to Easy Level AI.
Feature: You may now choose to play with or without any of the expansions you have purchased.


Baseball Highlights 2045 is available on iOS and Android.



Rome: Total War Details Revealed
Nod to Touch Arcade. They've learned that Rome: Total War will be released "Autumn" on iPad. The app will require an iPad Air (first gen) or newer to run. It will be $9.99 and require around 4gb of space.

Last month they also released a trailer showing the control scheme for the game:




Invisible, Inc Out on iPad
Klei Entertainment, makers of Don't Starve, have released their next title on iPad: Invisible Inc. This turn based procedural spy game have receive a lot of praise and seems like a good fit for tabletop fan.

I've played a bit on the PC but I am looking forward to really diving in with the game now on iPad. Be sure to check it out.

App News from Twitch Con: Shardbound Demo Alpha, Hearthstone on Twitch Prime, Super Senso Beta

App News from Twitch Con



I had the opportunity to attend Twitch Con for my day job. It's an interesting con, and there were a few things I saw worth sharing here.


Shardbound Demoed
A digital card game, Shardbound, was shown at the con. It is a sort of combinations of Summoner Wars and Hearthstone. You have a deck of cards which summon units onto the board which is represented by a hex grid. The spatial mechanics are really interesting with positioning playing a huge roll. Check out this video from Day9 with a quick look at the game:




Hearthstone Featured on Twitch Prime
This weekend Amazon announced Twitch Prime, a new service linking Twitch to Amazon Prime. Included in this, players will receive free game content each month. Hearthstone is being featured this month and is offering a new card back and Tyrande hero. If you are a Hearthstone fan, this is a pretty easy pick up.





Super Senso Shown Off
We've seen Advance Wars clones on the app store before, that this one seems to be following the pattern here. That being said, this one seems to really be bent on quick multiplayer. The combat is more direct and every turn is on a quick timer. I only got a quick look, but seems like it might have some potential. You can learn more on their site.


On a side note, VainGlory had a big showing at Twitch Con. It is definitely a MOBA but it got me to try it again and turns out it is pretty great, if you're into that kind of thing.
