GAME OF THE DAY - Afterpulse is a brilliant PvP shooter that now has squads

Another day, another #gameoftheday award to be given out. What's that, you're no doubt asking. Well, it's one of the many initiatives we run to make sure you're always playing the very best mobile games in the world. We don't want you to play bad games - bad games make us sad, and we imagine they make you sad as well.

If you click here you can check out every game that's received the prestigious recommendation in our #gameoftheday hub. There's loads there, and they're all really, really good - that's sort of the point of this whole exercise.

Today's choice is the super-slick multiplayer shooter Afterpulse. We'll get to that in a moment, but if you smash a click here you can check out all the latest coverage of the biggest mobile and portable games in our reviews section.


There are two reasons we've picked Afterpulse today - firstly it's just really really good. But it's also just been updated with a new mode that lets you play in squads, which is pretty much the only thing the game has been lacking since it first came out a couple of years ago.

The game sees you running through tight levels, trying to score more points than the players on the other team. The action is tight and frantic, and there's a tight compulsion loop that's going to keep you coming back for more. And now you can keep coming back for more with a squad, which is pretty damn awesome. The new modes also include the first 7* gear that Afterpulse has given out, which means you're going to need to be the best if you want the best weapons.
