It's been a mixed bag today. We've got two new phone controllers (1, 2), exciting new trailers from the Tokyo Game Show, a jailbreak for iOS 6, and a huge new update for N.O.V.A. 3.

Plus, we've played Lili, figured out how to send Game Center challenges in iOS 6, and updated our list of iPhone 5-optimised games with a number of new titles.

As for the stories that didn't quite make the separate articles cut, feast your eyes on these beauties...

New releases

Charadium reboot Draw Mania is now on Android, too. It's digital pictionary, basically, with both turn-based battles and live multiplayer throwdowns included. You can also use custom words, and buy new art supplies. Free on Google Play.

Underwater adventure game Abyss, from EnjoyUp Games, is now available in Europe either through DSiWare or via the Nintendo eShop. It costs 200 points (or £1.80 in real money), and looks rather lovely - check out the trailer here.

On the horizon


Death Rally desinger Cornfox & Bros has released a couple of new screenshots for its gorgeous new iOS adventure Oceanhorn. This much-anticipated RPG has more than a hint of Zelda about it - which is definitely no bad thing.

It's coming along well: "Over 100 objects are modeled so far, along with 3D maptiles, enemies, and characters," Oceanhorn artist Heikki Repo says.

Big updates

Competitive card battler Magic 2013 has received a bumper expansion pack, which will set you back £2.99 as an in-app purchase. It contains new decks, new challenges, and ten new campaign levels. This iPad-only game is available for free.

Sony's official PlayStation app for iPhone has a neat new surprise in store. Load up the app, pull down the LittleBigPlanet banner, and point your camera at the Vita version's box, and you'll receive a cool augmented reality mini-game starring Sackboy. Psst, don't tell anyone: but, it works on a photo of the box, too.

Tech stuff

There's a new software update available for the 3DS. Version is a standard stability upgrade, with no new user-facing features. Still, you'll need it before you can gain access to the eShop.


Lovely-looking beasty basher Horn is on sale. You can pick it up on iOS now for £1.99 / $2.99. The game has also received a small update with iOS 6 support, more checkpoints, and localisation in lots of different languages.
