Furious Fast RacingFunction introduction
A LION entered a farmyard. The Farmer, wishing to catch him, shut the gate. When the Lion found that he could not escape, he flew upon the sheep and killed them, and then attacked the oxen. The Farmer, beginning to be alarmed for his own safety, opened the gate and released the Lion. On his departure the Farmer grievously lamented the destruction of his sheep and oxen, but his wife, who had been a spectator to all that took place, said, "On my word, you are rightly served, for how could you for a moment think of shutting up a Lion along with you in your farmyard when you know that you shake in your shoes if you only hear his roar at a distance?'
"No."<p>In a public announcement made yesterday, Google Stadia has shuttered its internal studios located in Montreal and Los Angeles, neither of which had released any games yet.</p><p>Phil Harrison, the vice president and general manager for Stadia, wrote on Monday afternoon:“Creating best-in-class games from the ground up takes many years and significant investment, and the cost is going up exponentially. Given our focus on building on the proven technology of Stadia as well as deepening our business partnerships, we’ve decided that we will not be investing further in bringing exclusive content from our internal development team SG&E, beyond any near-term planned games. With the increased focus on using our technology platform for industry partners, Jade Raymond has decided to leave Google to pursue other opportunities. We greatly appreciate Jade's contribution to Stadia and wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors. Over the coming months, most of the SG&E team will be moving on to new roles. We’re committed to working with this talented team to find new roles and support them.” Harrison then went on to reassure users that this would not affect third-party titles on the service, and that Google will continue to bring new games from other developers to those who use Stadia and Stadia Pro.</p><p>Google Stadia originally launched in 2019. Given the shaky launch the service had due to its somewhat pricy buy-in and lack of must-have exclusive titles on the service, combined with the fact that Microsoft has slowly been building up a good relationship with its Game Pass and xCloud users, it doesn’t come as a surprise that Google has struggled to keep its foot in the door.</p><p>You can read the full announcement here on Google’s blog.</p>Be sure to read our list of the best free mobile games to play in 2021.
Updated on October 9th at 12:05: Dragon Quest II has also popped up on the Google Play Store, so if you're an Android-powered player you can pick it up too.<p>It costs the same price as its iOS counterpart - £2.99 / $4.99 - and you can grab it by following this here link [buy].</p><p>Original story follows...Dragon Quest II has just popped up on the New Zealand App Store, which means the classic RPG should be landing in the UK later tonight.</p><p>It follows in the footsteps of Dragon Quest VIII, Dragon Quest IV, and Dragon Quest I, and shows Square Enix is pretty serious about filling the App Store up with Dragon Quest games. Who knows what'll turn up next?</p><p>I mean, it'll almost certainly be Dragon Quest III, but that's not really the point.</p><p>Once again the game is in portrait mode, with a big ol' joystick whacked at the bottom of the screen that lets you control your party.</p><p>The game will set you back £2.99 / $4.99 when it arrives in the UK later tonight. It's not as cheap as Dragon Quest I, but for a massive old school JRPG, it's still pretty damn cheap.</p>
And so much less of shame in me remains
<p>Adventure Time Heroes is the latest mobile game adaptation of Cartoon Network's beloved animated series. It's a turn-based RPG that sees Finn and Jake heading out on a grand adventure to once again save the land of Ooo and its many strange inhabitants. As first spotted by Mobile Mode Gaming, it's now open for pre-registration on the App Store and Google Play.</p><p>As far as its setup goes, the dreaded Lich has quietly amassed an army of minions for you to take down across 80 story missions and 9 dungeons. As you progress, you'll gradually build up an impressive roster of well-known heroes from the long-running show. There are over 200 in total, they're all said to boast their own specific skills, and you'll be able to upgrade the lot.</p><p>You can also boost your combat prowess by collecting trinkets, accessories, and materials. This should prove handy when testing your mettle in the PvP arena. Though if you're not feeling particularly competitive, there's always the option to work together with others to complete daily activities or clan raids.</p><p>Unfortunately, the game is currently only available for iOS & Android pre-registration in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, and the Philippines. There's also no word on when/if it will head westward.</p><p>In the meantime, you'll find more info over on Adventure Time Heroes' official Facebook page and Discord server.</p><p>From the adaptations I've played so far, it feels like we're yet to see the series done proper justice in video game form. Pirates of the Enchiridion was a step in the right direction, but many of the other games have either been too slight or repetitive. Here's to hoping that Heroes will prove to be one of the better ones.</p>On the hunt for some high-quality RPGs? Here are 25 of the very best for iPhone & iPad
<p>Use Your Words is a party game in the vein of The Jackbox, as in a game that lets you use your phones as controllers and that focuses on jokes and wordplay.</p>
