Rock and sock some robots in Ironkill

The movie Reel Steel might have been fairly forgettable, but the two mobile games based on it have enjoyed a fair little following. The team leads from the mobile Reel Steel and Total Recall titles have left Reliance Entertainment in order to form their own studio, Play Motion. And Play Motion's first game sticks with what they know: robots punching other robots.

Ironkill has just launched on Android and iOS as a free to play title. Players can collect and upgrade a wide assortment of stylized robots, and then journey across a post-apocalyptic map to battle it out against other robot trainers.

Fight for the forest in Animals vs Mutants

Netmarble is South Korea's largest mobile game publisher, but they've never had much of a US presence – until now. The newly-formed Netmarble US has just released its first game: Animals vs. Mutants. It's available for free on both Android and iOS.
